If they want to allow for faster railways, then they need to add a new booster rail track. This change will easily break most of the railstations we have built on our server and some of them are far from simple.
The Endermite is a cool idea, but the new minecart physics are horrible. I don't know what they were thinking when they come up with that. Does Mojang not know that minecarts de-railing at corners and bouncing back at hills is bound to break things? It's going to be a massive headache to deal with on worlds where there are large automated rail transportation systems.
I remember back in beta 1.6 3 years ago when they overhauled minecart physics and destroyed everybodies cart stations.
Wow i just noticed the minecart thing... MOJANG YOU RUINED OUR ROLLER COASTERS! Minecraft doesn't need physics! Its a game where you build things, like roller coasters and yet you ruined the concept of fast turns! Please if anyone out there knows how to edit the files of the game PLEASE remove it and make a download link for it! No no NO Mojang thats the opposite of what we want! 14w11a= FAIL SNAPSHOT. This had some good editions but it made the game worse for building! Stuff like this that they are adding is horrible!
So, I can barely get a minecart to go up a hill now. Even if it's an entire hill of powered rails, it tends to get stuck. Occasionally it goes up, but otherwise, it just rolls back down.
Why? How is this a good change? There was nothing wrong with the physics of minecarts before. I just got used to using them too.
If you wanna add something to minecarts, how about a proper stop section, so you can stop and go, without having to manually make one. Like a specific rail for stop/go. Or a way to connect minecarts together with tripwire hooks and string.
this also goes for terrible update ideas. just replace any mention of not being able to solve a puzzle with...this stuff. from what i can see, not much effort was put into these updates, so you really dont have an excuse to keep them in.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
While it is disappointing that the minecart physics were broken in a way, it is a pretty good snapshot to say the least. Some people don't appreciate the snapshots because it doesn't come with huge features. There have been so many bugs fixed in the 1.8 snapshots it's not even funny. Appreciate the snapshots. They might change bad things later.
I don't get why everyone is flaming about the minecraft physics, they really easy to fix and add much needed depth to the game. As broken stations I'm sure people will come up with new designs instantly like they do for everything.
