    posted a message on SMP Versus the Real World
    Hey all, Dlane_skyward here, and I just wanted to tell everyone about something I've been thinking about. The real world sucks, we all know it. Prices for everything are through the roof, starvation and war are killing thousands, etc. But the main thing I'm getting at here is about the people of the world. Everyone is greedy, demanding, and almost no one has a sense of teamwork and/or leadership. And I feel like this needs to be changed; and I think SMP servers are slowly helping with this. They're teaching people about leadership and teamwork, the ability to help each other out and share what they have. Generally on SMP servers people play together, in groups around 3-5 most of the time. Those people then start from scratch, gathering resources, building their home, etc.; and all without any argument about who will do what - oftentimes people actually volunteer for specific tasks. And this, in my opinion, is a great example of teamwork - everyone doing everything that needs to be done without any argument whatsoever. And I often wonder: "Why can't the real world be like this? Why is it that we so blinded by greed and hierarchy? Why can't we just all work together to get everything we need, rather than forcing people to go without what they need to survive?" It baffles me how much our world has changed over the past several thousand years or so...

    A quick note:
    I know a lot of you are going to think "Well, the reason people do things without question is because it's a game, so it's fun for them to do it." And I know what you mean....but I still think that games like Minecraft bring us closer together as people - or better yet, as friends.

    Quote from Lord_Revan

    At rare times I do like some of the updates but mainly the small things such as the server icons and the resource packs.

    Edit: I just realized that the resource packs aren't a small feature xD


    You stated earlier that the updates weren't big enough, and that since Jeb_ has taken over, it hasn't been as creative; but yet here you are saying you only like that small updates which have nothing to do with the creativity in Minecraft? Server icons aren't necessarily "creative", just convenient. And another thing to mention about that, if you don't think doubling the mount of biomes in the game is a "big" update or that it's not "creative" enough, you should really look up what the words mean.

    Quote from maximogreppi42

    1nether castle, golem, horses, the new generation because they are realistic, villagers, some mods, the jungle, ect

    Some mods? Really? People create those, Jeb_ has no control over that. And how exactly are ANY of those "kids things". Tell me exactly what about each of those is geared towards kids. One thing I'm looking at specifically is the "the new generation because they are realistic". How is more realistic a "kids thing"?

    Dragons that you could ride around.

    I think they may be working on that for 1.8 :D considering the dragon in one of the 1.7 snapshots....perhaps the Red Dragon wasn't eady yet and it will be released in 1.8? :D :D

    The constant updates are actually what I love about the game; I don't think I would play nearly as much if weren't for this. Minecraft is a game of great creativity, and with each update, that just gives more possibilities. And the updates surely aren't "uncreative"; in fact, since Jeb_ has taken over as lead developer of Minecraft, I've noticed a lot of creativity and awesomeness.

    Quote from majoranman

    All the different vanilla wool colors for example are sharing the same id, its just the metadata of the block that defines the colors . You could do it this way, too.


    :o Thanks, I didn't even think about that....wow lol

    :D

    Use Fancy Colors, Please!


    Be specific.... -.- by "shades" I mean like different colors that are like that color. Like in "shades of blue", that includes things like teal, aqua, etc.
    Quote from Flying_Bat

    You'd need a hardcore builder to use up all these blocks.
    Just curious, but will there be crafting recipes for all of these? Or a custom crafting system instead?


    My plan as of right now is for it to be strictly for creative mode.

    Sounds like a epic mod. This will be a nice mod for people who think minecraft doesn't have enough variation in building blocks for them. Mind if I do a mod review when a download comes out?


    Wow! Haha, yea, that's kind what this mod is geared towards: builders. and sure, if you'd like, after I get a download link on here, your 100% welcome to do a mod review. :D
