    often, they do know, everyone posts their activities on open sites like facebook, twitter and the like, lol. so yes, a randon nsa op would already have the lead if the op's target was an active mc player, therefore squished


    Well I guess it depends on the individual. Most adults wouldn't post their Minecraft activities onto social media anyways. So anyways, besides Minecraft, what other games can people hide text in? I originally thought of this idea based on Minecraft but I am thinking that this could extend to other games as well.

    lel, your making it harder then it needs to be, lol.


    scenario: sensitive information in minecraft world save


    execution: nsa ops work with microsoft/mojang to get the account info of suspect.


    nsa ops login to suspect account, selecting from the vast amount of exploit clients already out there made by the peeps on HF, the ops can locate the potential target blocks, bookcases and chests.


    nsa ops find the hidden chest containing the information they want.


    mission completed, endgame scenario, suspect goes to prison.


    Of course, this is assuming the government knows what they are looking for. A random NSA agent wouldnt be like "Hey I think this guy is hiding his info in Minecraft".

    I use Vortex servers. But this was back in the day probably 2 years ago, they still host now, their price is pretty cheap in my opinion and down time is rare, lol I can't believe im doing advertising for them. Their support is pretty fast too. Here is their site. https://vortexservers.com/minecraft.php

    Just straight up uninstall the game . . . I know that sounds blunt. There are several outcomes to your situation:

    1. You continue playing till the end of time

    2. You will get bored and move on

    3. You quit right now


    The game is fun, don't get me wrong and I understand the addictive aspect of the game. However since you said you are starting college, have you ever considered what would happen if you don't get accepted or having trouble keeping up your grades? Think of the money your parents are investing in your education and all the hard work they had to suffer, and if you made your own money, think of all that time you spent working, for it to be a waste because you got addicted to a game.


    By uninstalling the game and resisting the urge to reinstall, you can practice self-discipline which is a skill that carries over to other aspects of your life. Video addiction is a real thing, I've been where you are. Trust me when I say the pressure of school work will catch up to you. But I guess you already realize that considering you are asking for help.


    You don't have to quit Minecraft forever, just long enough for you to do what you need to do. Perhaps you never go back to it, it might be for the best. Go socialize, refine your skills in the arts, do you like music? Have you played a musical instrument?


    You also said that you find the game stale and boring, this is a major reason why you should just straight up uninstall the game. There is no point in playing anymore if you are not having fun.

    Really, the thought of mobsters, spies, or similar meeting up to play Minecraft kind of cracks me up. :D


    It is that way of thinking that makes this theory work haha. If people think it is silly for criminals to do this, no one would bother checking Minecraft for criminal information xD

    Exactly, if Minecraft books were stored as plain text files then that would completely obliterate this theory.

    They're probably more likely to get the info out of the game/server files directly. Either way, at this point they would likely know that someones was up to no good and they're just fishing for evidence. So basically, they wouldn't need to bother with it.


    Along these lines though: Sharing confidential information in this way with your co-conspirators on a private server might be advantageous. Not that I'm suggesting that be done for illegal purposes, of course.


    Lol of course we are not suggesting anything illegal *wink* *wink*.

    On a more serious note, I just wanna say to everyone that I am talking about Single Player, not MP where its hosted on servers because that would be a security flaw haha.

    ye, definitely interesting, this game is originally built in seden, but microsoft has bought mojang. microsoft has control of the proprietary code, but it is originally built in sweden.


    servers as i see it would be less secure, a criminal would feel safer hiding this information in an sp world. with all the security mods like socialspy, anti cheat/antihack/anti grief mods along with other mods allowing admins or other users to re open signed books, minecraft servers arent a secure place for sensitive information.


    if a bust like this was to be made, even in sp would be fairly easy. some hack clients can be custom set to find objects like bookcases, and all the hackclients ever made have the ability to locate and tell the user where the chests are. so essentially the possibility is very real of a goverment being able to find the book(s) fairly easy




    Everything you just said makes sense to me and I agree with you. My theory can be undermined by hack clients. But this is also assuming that intelligence agents would even consider Minecraft a place to store sensitive information. One would have to realize that a criminal hid something within a video game. To even come to such conclusions would be crazy, unless the person was tipped off, or if they are some genius level detective. I guess after realizing that sensitive information could be hidden within Minecraft, finding the books would be a matter of downloading hacked clients and as you said, locating all the books.

    I'm not sure if this has been addressed before but I have a theory. Usually criminals store data such as names, addresses, transaction numbers, bank accounts, and other information either on servers or personal computers WHICH could be confiscated by the government and hacked into. My theory is, what if we were to hide real world confidential information within a video game. Bear with me here, I'm not promoting hiding incriminating data, but what if we can record information that we wouldn't want others to hack into by recording it in the Minecraft books ingame. The data would be stored in the game file, correct? Who would ever look there to find secret information.


    If you still don't get it. Basically what I'm suggesting is creating a book in minecraft (the actual book item ingame not books about minecraft), and input your confidential information there. So using my examples with criminals, they can have their client list, bank accounts and all that stuff within the minecraft game file. To even access that information one would have to open up Minecraft, log in, and FIND THE BOOK wherever the person hid it within the massive world. Would the government crack into it? Would they even notice it? Share your thoughts.

    posted a message on Custom NPCs

    *******************************************************************************************************************************************************

    Disregard this post, it would seem that Minecraft has changed the default dimensions to 64 x 64, therefore it is not CustomNPCs fault. All the skins on Skindex are still 64 x 32 that is why i have this problem so i guess for now i must continue changing the skin dimensions manually. http://puu.sh/gLqL0/58722de31a.png

    *******************************************************************************************************************************************************

    This is regarding Version 1.8.

    So before 1.8 i could install skins from skindex no problem. After 1.8 i have had problems when using skins from skindex. The skins do not fit the model and it gets messed up. Upon closer inspection of the files i have found out that CustomNPC takes 64 x 64 skins. Skindex skins are 64 x 32. The difference in dimensions is the cause of this problem. This is proven when I manually changed a skindex skin from 64 x 32 to 64 x 64. By doing that the skindex skin fits the model just fine.


    So can you fix this? Else i would have to change every Skindex skin to 64 x 64 before popping it into CustomNPCs in order to use it.


    If this issue has been addressed then sorry haha, the thread is just to big for me to find answers.

    You only need to run one of them since it runs only once when the game loads. So running multiple would be pointless.


    Yea but the onload is for different scripts.
    This goes for newsave and things like that.
