    posted a message on Steve: Smile or Beard?
    Quote from velcerick

    I gotta go with a beard too. Goatee, with part of the mouth exposed (pinkish two pixels), with a nose above it. All of the other mobs have a 'chin,' why would Steve be different. Besides, imagining it as a smile makes it seem like an otherwise intelligently designed and shaded skin has a single, glaring flaw. As a smile, it just doesn't fit the style of the rest of the game's skins.


    The rest of the game's skins are farm animals, jungle cats, and demons...

    If it's a beard, it's a really stupid-looking beard...That, or Notch doesn't do well with proportions...

    Well that pink thing above the "smile" is meant to be his mouth. The "smile" and the thing above the mouth are meant to be a moustache + a beard. Notice how recently enough, he doesn't have the "smile" anymore. How exactly could he remove a "smile"? He could shave a beard...


    What pink thing? You mean that bit of light brown above the smile? That's a brown thing.

    What mustache? I see a nose, some skin underneath, and a blocky smile under that. Where's this mustache? Is the nose supposed to be a mustache? He'd look like Chaplin and Hitler then.

    And how could he remove a smile? Easy: Edit the texture. He's not a real person, he's a pile of code and textures. You can't use real-world logic like that here. But if he were real, he could still remove a smile by frowning or simply blanking his expression. ;)

    Agreed.

    But what is the truth about the Enderdragon?

    Edit: And if the endermans could survive in The End for such a long time, The End have to be some kinda "Land without dead".


    It could simply be that time in The End passes differently, enabling them to live longer.

    As for the Enderdragon, perhaps in their long existence, the anger and rage of the Endermen took on a physical form, coalescing into a guardian entity whose sole intent was to attack and destroy any intruders, insuring no human who entered The End would ever escape, as a form of vengeance against all who kept what was stolen from them.

    Is there a backstory for The End itself yet?

    A thought occurs: If Net is indeed banished away in the Nether, he shouldn't very well be capable of restoring a human life in the overworld. Perhaps a requirement of his path should be hardcore mode.

    The Truth about the Endermen, As detailed by a servant of Nixos, the knowledge seekers.

    The Endermen are you, that is, survivors. They are survivors that made it to The End via the Stronghold but got trapped there. While there, they began to change. Slowly at first. Perhaps they got a little bit taller in the weaker gravity, perhaps a little darker as their skin blackened due to the constant bombardment from radioactive static in The End, their eyes a little brighter to see in the dim-light. But they remembered. They remembered building and moving things. They remembered picking things up, and putting them somewhere else. They remembered...something. There was something they had to do. What was it? Oh look, a block, I'll just move this, I've moved lots of blocks. What's in my hand? A block? I have to put it somewhere, but where? What was I doing? And it moves and disappears and reappears, it's physical presence now as flaky as its state of mind.


    And then it sees you. And it remembers. It sees you living like it used to, in the overworld. It sees you building great things, surviving, living, it sees you still human while it was twisted and warped by the strangeness in The End. And it snaps. It attacks you, it's angry at what was stolen from it, it's angry that it lost it's humanity, it's mortality, having lived forever in that other place. In it's rage, it attacks you, teleporting to you in a blind rage to hurt you, to steal back from you what was stolen from it: It's life. But you hit it, and it's mind flees and takes it with it, teleporting it away, but the pain remains, and the memory of what was lost lingers and it attacks and attacks and attacks until it forgets what it was doing and finds a block in its hand, and then it remembers that it had to put it...somewhere.

    And then it rains. After living the radioactive oven of The End for so long, brought back in to the overworld by it's wandering mind and the closeness of the dormant stronghold portal, it feels the rain, and on its blackened skin it burns, it boils at the touch of its mutated flesh. In a panic, it wishes it were somewhere else and its mind takes it there, back to The End, where there is no water or dirt or sand or people. Just blocks and dim not-darkness. And there's a block in its hand, and it had to do something...


    ...That is terrifying.

    What on Earth is a "Minecraft youtuber"?

    My favorite Youtube user who uploads Minecraft-related content is BlueXephos. I just don't use ridiculous limiting terms like "Minecraft youtuber" to describe them.

    posted a message on The old MInecraft Pirate 'Witch-Hunt'
    Yes, I pirated Minecraft. No, there were no limitations: The client forced updates as they came. I only bought it after the updates started making it a game worth money.

    I vaguely recall a witchhunt.

    I have no problem with pirating anything for demo purposes. I've pirated every game, movie, and album I've ever had. If I decided it was good enough for the price afterward, I bought it. Incidentally, most movies weren't worth the price or sitting in the theater with whispering strangers. Their loss, my wallet's gain. :Skeleton:

    I'll also pirate whatever I want at the time if I lack cash. If it proves worth it, I buy it when cash comes along. Again, most movies fail in this regard. If I can't see myself revisiting it often, I don't pay a cent for film.

    And I pirate things that just can't be obtained otherwise. Old off-the-air TV series', mostly.

    It should just let you choose the enchantment. As EXP levels increase, you get access to higher level enchantments.

    TL;DR: "Remove random enchantments."

    Skip all the whining and complaining next time...

    Yes you did.
    You implied that no one else would have experienced what he had as he was stating what was happening to him.
    He simply asked whether anyone else noticed it.
    However it turned out he was incorrect.


    I implied that nobody would notice what happens for him when he does things. And unless they were watching him in-game, I would be correct.

    Quote from minerman237

    why is on every other sever ad I see there its a hunger games sever or has an arena?

    I know the movie came out and all, but why is it so popular?


    The Hunger Games originated as a really good book series that then became a (potentially) really good film. I haven't seen it yet but people have a tendency to overindulge in whatever is popular at any time.
