It started out as a simple enough project. a 32x32 icon of a classic Mac. (25x32 more specifically)
But I couldn't just leave it at that...Minecraft is, after all a 3D game, and this enormous 2D wall just didn't fit. So I decided to extrapolate the icon into the 3rd dimension. Lemme know what you think!
Welcome to Macintosh. You're watching the Squid Channel...all squid, all the time!
AUGUST 05, 2011 UPDATE - Piston Screen!! In color!!
I don't know if it's been done yet or not, I hadn't seen it before, but I've built a very basic 2-color piston display into the Big Mac, bringing up a static graphic, and the letters T E S T in sequence, and looping itself. I don't have the technical know-how to create a full-fledged programmable piston display with memory, and the Big Mac would probably be too small to house it all anyway. But hey, if anyone else thinks they could do it, then by all means, give it a try! I'd love to see it!
Idea for the squidsaver: make it four blocks thick, the middle two with water. Top view:
And within the water place random blocks of glass. So the squids won't fall to the bottom right away.
I tried something like that, took forever, and it kinda worked, but the glass created visible bright spots on the screen, and the squid still invariably fell to the bottom after some time.
It was like this:
<-- Glowstone, not Sponge
Now I'm thinking more along the lines of a flowing lava screensaver. It would occupy less space, be self-illuminating, and be visible from the inside too. I could even add icons and a menubar, giving the look of a desktop.
What the fff-?! This is win! :biggrin.gif: The Big Mac. Lulz.
I love how perfectly shaped it is, and the power-cord-mine-track is a stroke of genius. Have some

I was thinking you could build a redstone torch LED screen, and then build a working mouse by pushing a boat around a pressure-plate covered mousepad, but after testing it in an old save, I think it's impossible to push a boat to sit on a single pressure plate.
