    posted a message on Why was Beta 1.7.3 liked so much?

    Everything the community built up to that point became useless after the changes that were applied. Texture packs were changed from one giant picture to separate files per block, forcing every artist to update their packs or get left behind. The texture pack customizer was forgotten about because of that change also.


    The largest change was when single player was incorporated into multiplayer, which completely destroyed the modding community. Servers became terrible to maintain, especially RPG servers with ongoing stories, when things were updated every few weeks. I know the bukket and forge communities sprung up after that change, but the original and influential group of people that were brought up with that original idea of Minecraft started playing other videogames that scratched the same itch. Sup to those guys, we all miss you here!

    posted a message on How important is controlling inflation?

    My only concern with the lottery idea is in order for it to work correctly, everyone would have to be forced to buy a ticked and participate or else it wouldn't add up. I'm not docking the suggestion at all, but giving one character the lottery winnings gives that character the opportunity to single handedly RE-INFLATE the economy. Maybe. Not saying they would do it.

    posted a message on What has Minecraft taught you?

    Minecraft taught me a lot about ancient cultures and old forms of government. It also taught me about howtaking a group of people with the mentalities of ancient humans (8-14 year olds) and putting them in an environment where they must survive and make their own idea of survival, they end up making the same kinds of societies that were invented by their own ancient ancestors.

    It taught me how hard it is to maintain an balanced economy, it taught me how hard it is to maintain a balanced "level of hostility" between individual people, and how important that is to watching a server thrive or crash within weeks. It taught me how complex laws can make something as simple as someone in college getting help paying for the electricity to run a computer him and his friends play a videogame on. It made me realize that when enough people get together, great things can happen, it also taught me that also means equally terrible things are just as capable. It taught me that there are just as many people on either side of those things.

    It taught me that friends come and go. It taught me that plants and animals are the same. It taught me that moments you never thought you'd forget blend into the rest of the words and towns and cities you'll never remember in real life. It taught me that even after years of waiting for something, finally getting it... always feels the same.

    It taught me to go outside, at the end of the credits.

    posted a message on new here ! need help

    you would have to tp the pets on their own, you can use /tp @e (coords) to tp the closest entity, and then teleport yourself after you teleported your pets


    To get this answer, all I did was google "if you tp in minecraft does your pet tp with you". The third result was someone answering another guy with the same question you had :D

    found one, took 10-15 minutes of searching through the teleporter that appears after you beat the enderdragon

    No others though, kept looking for a while and just saw chorus plants

    Right clicking with armor while you already have armor equipped should swap the equipment.

    posted a message on Has anyone else seen random name tags pop up and go really fast?
    I used to think I was experiencing this, and after a while I noticed it was the slightest occurrence of screen tearing causing a black right angle to appear in my peripherals, which I assumed was a name.

    Turn Vsync on or lower your settings for a smoother framerate, or else your comp just does that sometimes. I learned to ignore it after a while as Vsync causes a lot of mouse lag for me
