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.

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.

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 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?
Dec 10, 2013The 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.Posted in: Discussion

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

Your probably gonna run out of IDs.
I never thought about that.... :/ I'll figure some way around it

Looks awesome! Bummed there is no download yet though...
Once I figure out how, there will be I'm not entirely sure how to do that... If you could show me, that would be great!

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.
Nov 28, 2013There will now be over 18000 blocks added into the game when this is finishedPosted in: WIP Mods
Nov 27, 2013I added a few things to the thread and made it look prettier :3Posted in: WIP Mods

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.

Oct 18, 2013I think the reason Mojang is giving us all these meaningless/small Snapshots is because they're working on something huge behind the scenes.They're just giving us these small updates so we don't get suspicious...Perhaps they're working on the Red Dragon, since no one figured out what the meaning of that dragon egg was in that one Snaapshot, maybe it was just a hint on what they were working on. They might also be working on something huge for biomes/world gemeration....ya know,what the name of this update is! The last several Snapshots have had nothing to do with what the whole update is supposed to be.Posted in: News

Also, look at the description of the pic in the offical Mojang web page: https://mojang.com/2...napshot-13w39a/
"I’m a little snapshot, short and stout. Here is my screenshot and here is my
[FATAL CORRUPTION IN CLASS SXQ CANNOT CONTINUE]"
I really doubt it is "... and here's my red sand"
Red sand and a dragon egg? That must be the lon awaited RED DRAGON!
Sep 19, 2013BUG REPORT:Posted in: News
If you have nausea and drink milk to get rid of it, you will temporarily see the inside of a nether portal when your drinking the milk. And the higher the amplifier of the nausea, the longer you see it.
Sep 19, 2013A few things I noticed:Posted in: News
There is no text box when you are typing, it just shows the text.
New video settings screen; Also new settings.
Shaders; If you press f3, it shows you what shader you are currently using.
Connected maps when put in item frames.
When you get an achievement, it tells you in chat.
And was there always these commands?
/enchant <player> <enchantment ID> [level]
/tell <player> <private message ...>
/spreadplayers <x> <z> <spreadDistance> <maxRange> <respectTeams true:false> <player ...>
