Minecraft in Left 4 Dead?

Posted Image

Minecraft has invaded a number of popular game titles over the last year, and Left 4 Dead is among them. If you happen to have L4D, and want a little more blockiness in your game, check out this awesome map! The video above is a pretty good run-through of the map, if you need a preview. Download links below!

Deathcraft 2 Map: Download

Wait...L4D in Minecraft?

The door is swinging both ways this time, it seems - if you enjoyed Deathcraft 2, then you might appreciate a visit from the L4D characters in your Minecraft world! In the near future, the 4 primary characters from L4D - Louis, Bill, Zoey and Francis - will be available for use in MCX360!

I just asked a few minutes ago on reddit I'm aware that you are no longer in the development of minecraft but is it up to you to release the source code and now that microsoft is involved with the xbox version will the source code ever be released ? as stated on minecraft.net " I will release the game source code as some kind of open source."

Now it's the time.

Let's ask him to ask Jeb to bring back the old hills and most biomes of pre-1.8. People, it is now our chance!

I would ask where 0x10c stands on dev status! He can't change anything in MC, so that stuff would be useless to ask him about.



Posted 30 July 2012 - 10:03 PM

Any chance you could add Herobrine as an OPTION, but not make it a forced thing? It would make the game a lot more funner and interesting.

What time is 2:00 pm GMT in EST? I'd love to be there to ask him some questions.

Sometimes I forget that Notch actually made updates for Minecraft alpha to beta, because Jeb took over.
But It's nice too see him still being mentioned on here.

If we're asking anything, is "What's your credit card number and PIN" okay?

Mine would be are there any mods that you like and would like to see in basic game as well as any plash for new biomes and mobs and why in the world do I keep spawning in a snow biome 90% of the time?

Oh and could you add something to hardcore. Life select where you can choose from 0 respawns to say 10 at max. That way you have a little bit of stress on death but not 1 slip and its over.

I want to ask what he originally intended minecraft to be and feel like (to play). And why he thinks minecraft is so popular

Remember, people, that Notch is not involved with Minecraft anymore by choice. Unless you're asking about that decision, you're not going to be asking a productive question. All of his answers will either be, "I'm not involved any more, so have no opinion." or "I'm not involved any more, but I think this. But it's up to Jeb."

Ask him about Mojang and 0x10c, and wait for Jeb's AMA for the Minecraft stuff.

Oh who am I kidding everybody's going to ask Minecraft stuff anyway. Maybe he WILL give some good answers.

Ask Notch anything? Alright.

First, can someone help me get set up for this? I've tried getting involved with the earlier "Ask Anything"'s and gotten nowhere.

Here's my question(s) (all about the balance of the XP system/mob farms):
(0: Yes, I know he's no longer the one that would make these changes. Which is why these are all, "If you could, would you?" questions.)

1. If you could easily (slightly harder than trivially) prevent mob grinders and farms from continuing to spawn mobs, would you?
2. If you could restructure the XP system so that exploring and mining gave the dominant source of XP, would you?
3. If you could redo the drop of XP orbs and rare drops to encourage direct damage by players in a fair fight, and discourage "suffocation traps" that reduced mobs to half a heart, would you?
4. If you could come up with a different, alternative source of mob drops (note that I think gunpowder and spider eyes are currently the only source with no alternatives now), would you?
