    posted a message on Minecraft servers have changed... A lot.
    Quote from Shmoup»


    In fact, that is exactly what i was thinking, and I think I might take charge. Maybe a building server where anyone can add to a giant floating island and make whatever they like, or a server based on working together to survive, idk they are just some ideas I had.


    The problem is audience too. Pardon me for saying this, but these days the averange minecraft player is MUCH younger than they used to be. The mindset on what they want (putting effort vs instant gratification) is very different from what was.

    I strongly agree with dinnerbones approach to this.

    Break everything and put out a big upgrade, rather than breaking everything with every update because you're constantly making small tweaks.

    Ah, but they have renamed it, and are subtly moving it aside. It's textbook Embrace, extend, and extinguish.

      1. Embrace: Development of software substantially compatible with a competing product, Bedrock
      2. Extend: Addition and promotion of features not supported by the competing product or part of the standard, creating interoperability problems, better together - proprietary servers, games, add-ons
      3. Extinguish: When extensions become a de facto standard because of their dominant market share, they marginalize competitors that do not or cannot support the new extensions. ??? When enough have switched over to Windows 10 that the remainers can be ignored... launch "Minecraft 2", and quietly forget all about java? Something like that

    OK, so the 'competitor' is their own (java) product, but that doesn't allow the same monetization - so it is competition.


    Im aware, but i can just refuse to go to their cash grab and have fun here with my mods. I doubt Microsofts Minecraft will survive the stand of time, while java minecraft stands good chances to have a dedicated fan base keeping it alive with mods and stuff loong after its relase. Like seriously, its got a good chance to become one of the classics so to speak.

    Yes, or bring dlc and microtransactions to java.

    posted a message on 1.13 (probably) news and updates (source: Twitter @jeb)
    Quote from Badprenup»

    This morning Dinnerbone confirmed that internal block states will be replaced entirely by each block having an entirely unique ID. Which is pretty darn awesome.


    https://twitter.com/Dinnerbone/status/894567687870967811


    This is a response to me asking that question, not sure if it will just show his response. This was floating around for a while within some MC bug reports but it is nice to get a simple confirmation.


    What i dont understand... Why? With certain mods that add tenthousands of blocks the game starts to crawl and choke, and this certainly wont make the memory usage any more efficent.

    Quite the opposite, since rather than using one single bit to denote variants you use many more now. Unless im misunderstanding something.

    Im pretty sure this is still in NEI/JEI (with NEI addon?). Doubleclick the search bar: It turns black with a yellow border and starts highlighting items that match your query rather than looking up the recipes for that item.

    posted a message on Iron Nuggets? For What?
    Quote from AMPPL50»


    But zombies already drop iron bars, so iron is perfectly renewable. (if painfully slowly)

    The coin system is built so guillible content creators think this is good for them.

    Think about it, you're giving your hardworked content to microsoft -for free- so they can money off it that you'd otherwise get, and your reward is a bit of ingame currency. (which is worthless outside of the store)


    It shouldnt take a lot to realize that this is basically a scam.

    posted a message on Dimensional Doors v2.2.4
    Quote from ChucklesToombs»

    Hey! I'm trying to get dimensional doors to work with IC2 . (for 1.5.2 [in hexxit])


    I fixed the config error so both mods load by changing the block IDs for limbo and perma fabric.


    Problem i am now running into is that limbo seems to be made up entirely of reinforced glass and reinforced stone, making it impossible to leave by standing on the fabric of reality (which has been changed to reinforced stone..ID 230:1 according to waila)


    You need to do some more config work... this is yet another ID conflict. Find which values are free and change the affected blocks and items to those.

    posted a message on Why wanting to build in survival mode ?

    I like to build in survival because placing blocks over and over can become quite monotone and in survival im exploring, potentially seeing neat places to see in and the time it takes to farm ressources lets me think about how i want my build to look and make plans.

    posted a message on Lore - What is netherrack?

    It is a type of soft rock coming from the nether. Thats my lore. Its a rock and its soft for a rock so it breaks easily. Probably a type of basanite tainted red by iron traces.

    posted a message on How bad is it to dig straight down?

    If you stand between 2 blocks and dig a 2-wide hole down you won't have any problems.


    just do this honestly. Comes with the additional plus side of being easily converted into a ladder shaft with a drop shaft w water at the end of it.
