    I refuse to use torches (it's just so damn cheap. I'll use them when Notch makes them a finite source of light)

    You wont ever be using torches then. Being finite would suck for the kind of game Minecraft is

    Did I just find a new craftable item?

    It looks like a wood floor.

    Its made like this.

    :wood: :wood: :wood: for 1 panel. You can place it down but you can't pick it up. Correct me if I'm wrong and its old news.


    Ya, that's old. It's a wooden floor panel (a half block). It used to make stairs that you don't have to jump to get up.

    Actually, its not, its a pressure pad, you step on it to make stuff happen, or have an item drop on it to also activate it, its with the redstone update along with the buttons and levers

    Assuming you don't die and you don't want to use the design for SMP, sure.

    Oh, and those dust trails heading to the doors would be exposed if you build it in game.

    Yeah, though its easy enough to build them below the ground level, not as easy to represent in 2D

    Griefing is possible, especially if spawn locations are static, spawn camping with full diamond armour and a diamond sword, and killing someone again and again at the spawn, or even not at the spawn, base camping, just keep killing them as they re-enter their base, that is griefing


    Then you stop playing their server, since clearly they are in charge if an admin isn't paying attention to the ~256 "Gov was killed by Greifomax4000 by a diamond sword" messages. There will be over a thousand servers, guaranteed. Before you build ****, explore the server and pay attention to the players, determining how friendly/fiendish they are. THEN you build your house.

    GRIEFING ONLY WORKS WHEN THE TARGET IS TOO STUPID TO STOP PLAYING. Which is why they are greifing. You keep coming back for more. You want to stop the greifers? Then grab up your own armor and weapon and kill them with stealth and intelligent trickery. Get behind them and dump lava on their head. Wait for them to afk, and blow them up with TNT. Tell an admin to kick/ban their ass. It's not hard. Use the squishy gray thing between your ears.

    I also question a greifers ability to find full diamond armor.

    Just fyi, I was not whining about griefers, I was merely stating that griefing exists in MC, whenever there is MP, there will be griefing, no exceptions, just because there was ways to deal with it doesn't mean its not griefing. And no matter what methods Notch tried to implement to prevent griefing, it. will. not. work.
    At least not without severely restricting everyone else, which would suck.

    Just thought I would put this here, I cannot remember if someone has already done a working airlock, but regardless here:



    And the rdat file for those who want to load it up, yes I know itd only take a few seconds to recreate but meh!

    Edit: And shortly after...compacted it, and for a proper airlock youll prolly always approach it from the same side anyway, which means the door will always be open and so I removed the 2 outside switches:
    rdat download

    Really nice :smile.gif:
    Spent a couple of minutes and look! Airlock! (not that it hasn't been done already...)


    And if anyone wants just just quickly load it up to play around with it: rdat file

    I think these infinite maps can now loop. O_o

    What in that video gave you that idea? That flyby is all unique terrain, its not looping around to the start point again

    But odds are you dont actually use a strategy when meleeing in FPS'... and if you do, it will be stealth-based, but I will have my volume practically max'd, so I would be able to hear anyone trying to stealthily kill me :tongue.gif:

    I ment mainly in the pure action aspect, did you know when a spider leaps at you, if you time it right and look up slightly and slash it, you wont get hit, I used to axe duel in Quake1, not much different TBH.

    Though, if its PvP, and the other player has a bow and plenty of arrows: you best just run/hide, even if they cant aim

    Some people are forgetting(or don't know) that FPS melee is still a skill, and unless you only play a FPS with no melee weapons, chances are you have practice with melee, its not always a matter of spamming left click, sure you can kill things that way in minecraft, but you take damage at the same time.
    Killing skeletons out in the open also requires FPS skills: Strafing
    Chances are if you aren't strafing, or able to use cover(or running away), chances are you will die with a melee weapon.
    But its possible to get close enough to a skeleton without taking an arrow to the face.

    Does anyone else just have a massive amount of pigs in their levels? I'm thinking it's a combination of 1) the update upping spawn rates, 2) playing on hard mode, 3) having torches so no mobs spawn near my door, but this is ridiculous. This picture shows 10 pigs, and actually doesn't even show all the pigs just walking around my front door, simply because I couldn't get them all in one frame:

    Thats a rather large field that they are in....not like they are all clumped together
