    Chapter 4 wasn't horrible. Sure, it was uneventful, but it left us eager for the next one. Having a few chapters done in advance really helps on the days you don't quite feel up to making another, so I'd recommend it. As for chapter 5, I look forward to it! :)

    That's fine, I fully understand. Being an MC player since mid-2011, I know what it's like to briefly gain and lose interest, and as a matter of fact it happens quite often. If single player isn't working out, try doing a multiplayer journal. Maybe we could all contribute :D

    I've seen a few survival journals before, but this one is really holding my attention this time! I like how even though there is no set story or plot, you make it seem that way through your wording. No need for a change in narration length or picture count, this is just perfect. Please keep making more chapters, I look forward to #3 and #4 :D

    posted a message on Is Minecraft "dead"?
    Quote from Gentle_Stream»

    Not to sound like one of the old-timers whom hates literally all of the updates, but the spirit of what MineCraft feels a little lost nowadays.


    So much of what made it great just isn't there anymore. It sometimes doesn't even feel like a sandbox game, because of intentionally placed 'balances' and limits. It's also sad to see the community constantly complain and argue over every little change, regardless of what it might be.


    Minecraft is still "alive" , in the sense that it's a thing. However, it feels like it's going along the same path as many other popular games. While there's an influx of new, and addicted players, the old ones are leaving. The community is becoming fractured. Modding just isn't the same. Resource packs continue to be limited by hard-coded values and intentional non-completeness of certain features. Moiang is no longer an indie dev, they're owned by a massive tech company... one that has a reputation for ruining all that is good in its products, and driving the products/companies it buys-out straight into the ground. Notch has left, and his old videos, including those about MC, now also mysteriously have disappeared or are "unavailable in your country". The more popular music parody videos are disappearing as well.


    Minecraft is both alive and dead. The game itself still exists, and is still being updated, but much of its spirit, and even some of its history/legacy, is gone. The community is still here, but has gone sour. The modding community has lost some great mods, and even their creators, and Forge lately is feeling more like an empire/dictatorship. Overall, MC feels more like it's in a comatose state and being sustained by life support, than it is alive and thriving on its own.


    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    20/263 - I'll free up space now, maybe that is in fact the problem.

    As far as I know, auto-saving cannot be turned off, but I'll look into that after I post this...


    Yes, the C drive is low on space, but it still has quite a few GB left, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    posted a message on I keep losing hours of progress on my world

    This is the second time now where I will be playing on my singleplayer world, decide to exit it, start it up later and find hours and hours of progress has been lost, and it's not even closed in a harsh way (such as a crash).


    I don't want to play if everything I do is lost the next time I close Minecraft.

    posted a message on New sounds in snapshot

    It looks like they are planning to add in those sounds sometime in the near future. The errors are due to the fact that the sounds do not yet exist.

    posted a message on First thing you said when you saw minecraft

    It was back in late May of 2011, I was looking through random videos and came across this one here:



    Well, it looked kind of bad to me at first, but then I started realizing that in this game, you can do just about anything you want... so the first thing I said when I saw Minecraft for the first time was probably "Hmm. That looks kind of fun." :P


    Within 12 hours I had bought the game. And dang, was it awesome!
