    posted a message on What programming language would you be okay with for Minecraft?
    So far, all I am seeing is "Obviously C++". Not really a surprise (since that seems to be the only one out there that everyone "wants"), but rather odd, considering that "Python" is far more stable.

    Python does have Objects. Just one big downside that comes to mind.

    I only use Movie Maker and some workarounds to get higher quality vids with more animations, but I hear Adobe Premier is a good option.

    Or you know, op could try Davinci Resolve, but no, lets all circle jerk WMM and just pretend a better free solution doesn't exist.

    There is a huge difference between a $600 and $4,000 DSLR.

    Yes, but a newcomer won't notice, nor will they be able to leverage the $4000 camera. Point is, the free version has most of the things anyone needs, the rest is only necessary if you are a professional, in which case $10000 would be considered a small business cost.

    What do you mean by free? I checked and it was $995. Are you talking about a limited demo or something? I'd prefer free but paying isn't a problem either.

    No, the lite edition is completely free. It has a lot of the features that you will need as a new person. The rest of it really won't affect the quality of your videos. It would be like the difference between a cheap $600 DSLR and a $4000 one. Yes the more expensive one is more capable but as a new comer you will never use it to it's fullest. That being said Davinci Resolve Lite is the best free option there is and I would recommended trying it out before you look at any paid options.

    posted a message on .gcm and .iso (Roms) to .exe?
    Your so naive it's not even funny. The reason those games have to be emulating is because they were specifically programmed for the hardware that they were released on. That hardware having radically difference machine code than most PC's at the time made it impossible to use that same code on two machines with processors of different machine code/language. In order to emulate games on the PC you have to effectively run a software simulation of the consoles hardware, the console OS, all of its drivers, then the game. This makes emulation insanely inefficient. If you really wanted to I would just rewrite the program in a modern language like C++ with OpenGL. Although you happen to be the same person with the ridiculous Minecraft sticky rails suggestion so I doubt you have the ability to do that.

    You could ask the developers nicely for their source code and port it to Windows.

    If he thinks you can magically turn roms into exe files he probably can't port them to a modern OS.

    Quote from karlzhao314»
    Alienware is known for poor build quality, poor cooling, cheap parts, and uneven/unstable overclocks. On top of that they overprice everything to Jupiter and back. Don't get anything from them.

    Desktops yes, they are ****, but not there new laptops. In fact the new Alienware 15 is priced quite nicely compared to some Sager laptops

    Grass floats, it is invalid :P

    Just because grass floats doesn't mean there isn't physics in minecraft. You keep going back to the argument, and its silly. Minecarts, boats, entities, players, arrows, and many other items do experience physics (energy and motion specifically). And granted while it might not be 100% true to life, it is basic enough to allow objects to speed up, slow down, loose altitude, etc.

    Quote from herobrine123x_»

    The tellraw part, yes, but not the /give part or the /summon. Right now, you cannot give a player an item with the amount of that equal to the player's score. And the Owner tag in the NBT requires a player name, it won't work with selectors.

    Yes you can, you can just run the command block several times

    posted a message on Speed Controlled Powered Rails Using Redstone Controller
    it only takes 2 powered rails to get to top speed, if you want the rails to accelerate carts slower I have to ask "whats the point" you will only make things more expensive by needing more powered rails. having the controller increase the acceleration of the minecart is stupid, as I already said, you only need two powered rails to get to top speed.

    Why would anyone need this?
    This allows for more functions in command blocks. You can have 10 for a score and you get 10 sticks. You can summon a pet to help you on a server or in an adventure map. The functions also work in tellraw like how it displays your score.

    This can be done with redstone.

    posted a message on Colored GlowStone
    Ideas like this are so old it's not even funny. If Mojang could implement this into the game they would have done so already. The problem is the current game engine does not support colored lighting. If you know nothing about programming than please don't assume that it would be easy.

    posted a message on Easier-to-make Animated Textures
    Once you've figured the learning curve for making the texture files (kinda easy compared to the learning curve for animation)
    - the current system is actually rather powerful can gives you a lot more options than just framerate {notably specifying the exact order and duration of each frame}- something your system would struggle to do.

    I'll give you partial support- I like the individual frame idea, rather than the comic strip we currently have.
    (So you'll have folder 'animatedTexture_1' and 'animatedTexture_1.txt' in your main textures folder. folder.)

    This ^

    If you want to make a texture and animate it, learn how to do so. Don't just complain and say its to hard. Imagine if people said "learning c++ is too hard why can't it just be easy to make games like crysis 3" or "learnig java is hard, why can't they make it super easy to make minecraft mods". It's a ridiculous demand, and I hate to burst you bubble but Mojang isn't going to take the time to dumb the system down so everyone can use it. When you dumb things down, you loose functionality, period. Yes, you can use paint to edit photos and textures, it's easy to use and anyone can use it. But its no where near as powerful as Photoshop.

    Get over it and learn how to make animated textures. Sorry if I'm coming across as aggressive, I'm only trying to be honest.

    posted a message on Diamond blocks harder to break
    Quote from Jaspurra»
    I think diamond blocks are way too easy to break... aren't diamonds the hardest material?


    They are the hardest natural material on earth to be scratched, they are still extremely brittle however.
    It should be somewhat like obsidian, it should take a while to get, since it's so valuable.

    In real life Obsidian is volcanic glass, again, making it extremely brittle, its odd that it take forever to mine in minecraft, but its just the way the system is set up for breaking blocks.

    This idea isn't really to help the game and make it better, I just think it would make it more realistic.


    It does neither of those things.
