    The glitch where pistons next to each other can launch entities much higher is gone.


    That is unfortunate.

    Well this is nice... I doubt if this little bit of posting on the forum had anything to do with it, but Mojang has addressed everything I hoped they would. To quote from Notch's latest blog post:

    ...we decided to bring in bug fixing into the development method in a more clear way so that people working customer support can add them as tasks for us, and that we finally set a release date for Minecraft.

    It’s a bit tricky to really do a release for Minecraft as we keep updating it all the time. For one, the version we deem as the “full version” won’t be very different at all from what the game was like a week ago, and we’ll keep adding features after the release as well, so it’s really more of a milestone when we finally get rid of the Beta label, and some kind of goal for us to work towards. The plan is to be open with this and try to get people to cheer us on as much as possible, but to be open with the fact that the game won’t change much at the actual release day. (It’s more a progress up until that point)

    We picked November 11, with the unofficial tagline “us too”.


    This makes me feel a hell of a lot better about the future of Minecraft.

    Medea: Awesome user name.

    Yes depending on direction there is a spot next to the piston where it still pushes you.
    So it is an exploit on a mod.


    Ah. Now the obvious question: does this only work on the player?

    its simple i just used repeaters inset in the ground and red stone connected to it.
    time in vid 1:11-1:14.


    That I got. What it look like is that the pistons are pushing you even though you are not in front of it. Is this teh case?

    It appears you've built Minecrafts first linear accelerator. Care to elaborate on how you did that?

    beta means feature complete but buggy. During the beta stage the primary focus should on fixing existing bugs and improving stability and performance. New features should be rare. Majong slapped the Beta name on Minecraft but is still treating it like it's in Alpha stage. If you're going to call it a Beta then treat it like a Beta.


    That. I have nothing to add, but I felt it was worth repeating.


    Quote from mott555 »
    I just think they need to slow down a bit and spend a little more time QC'ing their code and make sure stuff is relatively stable and bug-free the first time they do it.


    Considering how small Mojang is, I wonder if they could outsource QC? And if they could, I wonder if it has ever occured to them? I find 1.4.01 to be very buggy and although the there are framerate improvements, there are still random pauses that last 30+ seconds. At the very least, the dev team should spend time before every release running the code on a range of hardware that includes machines specc'd below what they expect the game to be able to run on.

    So much angst on display. Sad.

    Anyway...

    Falarin: No I don't think Mojang needs to develop non-stop. I simple think it would be good for Mojang in the long run to provide their customers with some credible information. Yes I did pay money for a game that was in alpha, but I would like to be able to play that game without having to start from scratch every time there is an update.
    But thanks for stopping by and sharing you're opinion. I find it rather defeatist though...

    MeagenImage: I'm operating on the presumption that the developer realises that it is a good idea to listen to their customers. Some people still do business that way.

    necrodoom: I do think Notch and Mojang know what they're doing, but I'm no sure they are fully aware how a segment (I have no idea how large) of their customer base feels. That's what this is about.

    Traviskolber: No, I paid for an infinately upgradable game. As for the rest of your comments, see my answers above as you basically are saying the same thing as some of the other people.

    mrbaggins: I was not aware that they really have a roadmap or that it was shown at any point. I find it surprising as the developement doesn't feel planned. Do you have a link to this video?

    Spehss Mahreen: I'm pretty sure I never said you must use mods. So I'm not sure what you're on about.

    So once again I feel compelled to ask for contributing ideas. If you have similar thoughts as I do, please share them here. If you don't, then please restrain from posting. The point of this thread is to discuss potentially constructive ideas, not to try to argue with people you do not agree with.

    Thank you.

    Hi there.

    With the recent release of 1.4.01 and the breaking of mods (so soon after another mod breaking release) I have become quite displeased with the state of Minecraft developement. I am well aware that mods are not "officially" supported and that a proper API has been discussed. However, my dissapointment goes beyond mod breaking updates and is essentially "beta fatigue".

    Without being privvy to the day to day workings of Mojang I do not have a clear understanding of how Minecraft developement is carried out. But from this vantage point, that of a paying customer, it looks as if there is no end in sight. From this players P.O.V., it appears that Minecraft developement is aimless.

    Does Mojang have a line in the sand for Minecraft Release? Is there a schedule of specific features to implement and specific bugs to squash before Minecraft can leave beta? There should be. And here's why: We paid for it.

    I've started this thread to discuss ideas around how to impress the above concepts on Mojang. Please contribute if you have ideas. Please hold back from contributing if you have nothing constructive to add (i.e. - go be a hater somewhere else).

    My initial thought is to start a small, but steady email campaign. I'm not interested in flooding Mojang's email system, but a noticable bump in incoming email traffic (and easily blocked once identified) might non-destructively gain Mojang's collective attention.

    Thoughts?

    Dumbasses.
    I typed in mostly capitals because it's the only way to get little kids' attention.


    I was going to call you out on this, but your statements are so pathetic they speak for themselves. Grow up. I don't care if you are 13 or 63, you need to apply some maturity when in public. Treat people decently and check your facts.

    Perhaps we should start an emailing campaign to impress upon Notch that his paying customers are unhappy with the state of Minecraft development. I'm not suggesting anything stupid like flooding Mojang's email system, but a steady stream of emails coming from paying customers that can be easily blocked once Mojang is aware of our concerns might be a simple way to get their attention. I wouldn't want to do anything to disrupt their operations (quite the opposite - I want Notch and Mojang to improve their operations).
    This will require some thought and a mature exchange of ideas. I'm going to start a thread where we can discuss this further. I'll edit in a link after I've created it. And here it is: http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1020&t=265211.

    This has to stop. Breaking mods so soon after a mod breaking update is simply rude. Sure, it's beta, but it's been in beta for a long time. And there is no end in sight. Sure they have a business and an office and travel around the world talking to people in the game industry, but Notch is still treating Minecraft like a basement coding project.
    I think Notch and his crew need to start treating Minecraft as proper commercial software and create a dev schedule with a a list of features to implement and bugs to squash and do nothing that is not on that list until they are out of beta. And publish the list. Make it definitive. The people that have paid money deserve it.

    posted a message on [1.5.2] DJoslin's Creations: [9 of 14 updated]
    Hey there DJoslin!
    Just installed the Transmitter mod for 1.4 and I love it.

    I have a request, I haven't read through all the posts in this thread so someone else might have suggested this, but I'd like to have lens blocks that could allow you to turn the transmission. Ideally you could also change the input/output direction after placing it. Super ideally you could change the input/output direction via redstone dust (obviously it would have to be via redstone dust and not a transmitted redstone dust signal).
    I could go into greater detail if this idea interests you. PM me and I'll send you an message with a more complete description of what I'm thinking.

    Cheers,

    ZDepthCharge

    I still get the black screen. I've got the new modloader and followed teh instructions carefully, but still the black screen. This leads me to think I've got some other problem. Any ideas..?

    Does this only work with modloader v4? I only get a black screen after logging in when this is installed.
