I've been playing since beta 1.8.1 in 2011. My current world has about 108 (real)days of total playtime. In the entire time I've been playing, I have never seen a charged creeper legitimately in survival mode.

Oh wow! Seems very nice! Will definitely have to check up on this from time to time. Been getting back into playing Skyrim again here recently, so seeing this is really cool!

MCForum - Basically from Super Mario 64 DS.
Minecraft - I forget how we came up with it. I was trying to figure out a name to use with a friend of mine from some other game."Seth Reed" was the end result. No, it isn't my actual name.
Apr 20, 2017Metalwario posted a message on Been ages since I played - does the Win 10 version lack any features from PC / Java?Posted in: Discussion
Windows 10 edition is missing a few things from Java edition.
-Still yet to be able to hold an item in the off-hand slot
-Which means no shields.
-Missing the "Mending" enchantment as far as I can tell
-Not sure if the igloos and Polar Bears are added yet
-Hunger system is slightly different than Java edition, though I'm not sure of the exact mechanics
-You can't pause the game. Bringing up the ESC menu does not freeze the world, even in single player.
-Not entirely sure, but I don't think the other game modes exist yet (Adventure/Spectator)
-Cannot connect to PC, Xbox, PS servers
-PC worlds do not work with Windows 10 edition that I'm aware of.
-Does not seem to be a way to import your own resource pack with Windows 10 edition that I'm aware of.
-You can use your own skins, though. They do sell skins, but you can use your own if you want, and not pay anything.
-No mod support yet, that I'm aware of
Things it does have:
-Slightly different terrain differences. Things like fallen logs, vines that randomly spawn with trees, etc
-Can play over LAN with other Windows 10 players/Pocket Edition players
-This works for servers as well
-Game runs much smoother than Java (from my experiences anyways)
I'm sure there's more differences, but that's all I can remember off the top of my head. Otherwise, they're kind of close, gameplay-wise. I will probably switch over to Windows 10 when they add the Mending enchantment. Not sure if they're still doing it, but they were giving the game away for free if you already own PC edition.
Apr 19, 2017Metalwario posted a message on Anyone feel like Spruce Forests are WAY more common?Posted in: Discussion
It may not actually be happening, but it does kind of feel like it. I seem to find a lot more plains and normal forest biomes than I remember in the old 1.6.4 terrain. Sometimes it will take me days in-game to find a desert, for example.

I think the stained clay colors are tinted orange a little. It's supposed to be this way. You'll get the "true", vibrant colors in 1.12, with the new concrete blocks. Personally, I kinda like the colors of stained clay as they are. I like the slightly duller colors. Plus, I think the mesa biomes would look weird if they were the bright, vibrant colors like wool.

After looking around, I think they're the powered/unpowered states of redstone repeaters.

I'd been using this image for items/blocks for 1.7.3. I think this is everything.
I think ID 95 is the Locked Chest, which was an old April Fools thing in 2010.
Also note that there are wooden slabs, but the game thinks they are stone blocks, so they mine with a pickaxe, and not a normal axe.
I'm not really sure what IDs 93/94 are.
As for mobs, a lot less of them for sure.
-Zombie Pigmen (nether)
I don't think magma slimes are in yet. I think this is everything for b1.7.3. Correct me if I missed anything!

Enchant your armor, and make sure it's in good condition. I used some diamond enchanted gear, but I imagine if you're skilled enough, iron will work fine. You will need some water breathing potions, so go catch some pufferfish (make them last as long as possible!). It wouldn't hurt to bring some extra food, either (steak is probably preferred). You may also want to bring some night vision potions, as it can be kind of dark in the ocean monument, and the potion will let you see one from the surface very easily! Otherwise, it's just about being aware of your surroundings, and keeping an eye on your health and potion timers. Don't get lost inside!
Note that you can bring doors, place them in water, and use them as air pockets, should you run out of water breathing potions. Unless you kill the three elder guardians, however, you won't be able to get them back quite so easily.
Apr 7, 2017Metalwario posted a message on What sort of use would you apply to poisonous poatoesPosted in: Discussion
It's poisonous, though, so it'd probably make more sense for it to make a "Bad Luck" potion. Could then throw in a fermented spider eye to change it into a normal "Luck" potion!
To me, I don't see Luck potions fitting. Would probably make more sense as a poison of nausea. This would give the effect similar to entering a nether portal. Could be useful in PVP to disorient opponents, or for map makers with custom potions. For balance, could probably have it not last very long.
As for what its inverse potion would be, I have absolutely no idea. Maybe it doesn't need one (water breathing doesn't have one, does it?).
Apr 6, 2017Metalwario posted a message on Minecraft server Idea (wanna know if people are interested)Posted in: Discussion
Was sort of interested, until I read that it'll be a 1.7.10 server. Hopefully, if you do make such a server, you can make one for whatever the current version is at that time! I would probably hop on, and at the very least check it out, because it sounds interesting!

I don't think the game went bad. A decline? Maybe, probably something up for discussion. If I had to guess when people started to think the game was going bad, I'd probably guess around b1.8.1/1.0. b1.8.1 changed quite a lot for a single update. The world looked different, we got a hunger system, we could sprint, an experience system was added (which at that time was useless), and even Endermen appeared (which griefed even more than they do now). It was a lot of changes to take in at once, and I think that turned people away. Throw in potions, a "final boss", a new dimension, and another terrain change, and I think it just got worse in their minds. Every update there are people who keep saying "Minecraft is dying". It's mostly people who do not like change, and that's fine. Everyone has their preferences. Myself, I like the craziness of the old terrain generator.

The crops in villages generate naturally with the world. To me, saying that taking crops from a village near your spawn is cheating would be like saying mining cobblestone near your spawn is cheating. If it's there, use it!

I've got 3 different worlds. However, the other two are ancient, alpha/beta versions, and amidst doesn't seem to like those too much (as in doesn't work with them at all).
So here's my world with my tree home. It's made with large biomes! Been playing this world since 1.9!
Apr 2, 2017Metalwario posted a message on [Beta 1.7.3] Minecraft Beta 1.7.4 Custom Update Mod! New: OTA Updates Released!Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Oh wow, a mod for an old beta version, still in development! Just recently started playing b1.7.3 myself. It isn't what got me into the game, but it has the same spirit (I got hooked watching old videos from Alpha, back in 2011). I personally prefer the vanilla experience, but I like what's in this mod! May give this a shot later on if you ever get the server thing working!
Would kind of like to see other future blocks added in, like you did with stonebrick! Namely the other plank colors (always felt weird that birch logs gave me oak planks).

Oh cool! They actually made it! Now I can get this and play it on my 3DS when I'm out!
...except I can't, because it's a New 3DS exclusive, and I only have the original one. Oh well. I'm honestly surprised it even came out for the 3DS at all, even if it did wind up being a N3DS exclusive. Looks like a sort of watered-down version of Pocket Edition. Probably still wouldn't mind having this or the Switch version, just so I could play it on the go.

Um, April Fools was like a week ago...
In all seriousness, this really feels like Paid Steam Mods 2.0. There was a lot of backlash when they offered the ability to sell mods for games like Skyrim. They eventually removed this because of all the complaints. I don't see this working out too well, but I guess time will tell. Judging by the comments, it doesn't seem like many other people like the idea, either.

Um, color changing parrots? Haha I'm sorry, what? I like that they will dance now. Don't get the color changing thing, but the dancing part sounds adorable!
Guess I'm gonna have to put off finding a jungle biome now, until this update comes out. I want some parrots in my world, now!

My hopes of a 3DS Minecraft are just about gone now. Oh well! Will probably pick this version up if I get a Switch.

I dunno, I feel you should get more back from smelting some items. Like chestplates. They cost 8 ingots to make, yet you only get a single nugget back? Seems like it should be 1-2 ingots. I understand not getting all 8 ingots back, but only a nugget makes it hardly worth recycling old armor. At least it makes sense for tools only giving back a single nugget!
Rocket-powered flying sounds fun! I'll finally get a use for all that gunpowder I've collected my entire playthrough!
I suppose Mending+Infinity on a bow was pretty overpowered. I've been using it on my world. I've almost never needed to use my sword now. Wonder if it'll remove one of the enchantments if I update my game version?

Pretty sure Endermen don't wear cyan shirts and blue jeans.

That's kind of how it feels to me, too. Just feels like stuff that didn't make it into 1.9.

Minecraft 3DS Edition coming next? Would be nice to see, if it's at all possible!
Oct 25, 2013Looks pretty cool! Only problems I've ran into, is the fact that custom sounds in my resource pack no longer work (maybe sound format changed, will check later), and that mapping the F5 view change key to my middle mouse button doesn't work. It does work, but after I press it, I have to walk forward (press W) for it to change.Posted in: News
Jul 1, 2013Dunno if it's a bug or not, but when I checked my tame wolf, it looked to still have the wild wolf texture, just with a collar. I kinda like it, though!Posted in: News
EDIT: After logging off/on, it switched back to the normal tame wolf texture.
