    It does annoy me that it takes longer to break DUST than DIAMONDS. I support shorter mining time.

    Yes, the world is flat and it is sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The only question that remains is, why gender is the turtle?


    But there must be a turtle supporting that turtle. And under that turtle is a tur--
    *universe collapses*

    ...Also, it's a hermaphroditic turtle.

    I'm still convinced that this change is only intended if Notch's team for some reason WANTS to charge for DLC. And they don't even know if they'll do DLC yet. Legally, it does NOT mean they have to, only that they can. And considering how generous Notch seems to be, I think if there is charged DLC it will be reasonably priced. I got MC in alpha for $13 and I've played an entire month's worth of it since then. That's 51.6 hours of awesomeness to a dollar, seems pretty okay to me. Better than the last CoD game I purchased, netting me about eight hours of play before utter boredom set in, all for a whopping $50... Just putting that out there.

    Lots of false information in this thread. True, Alpha accounts will get everything for free in the future. Beta accounts will get all updates to the main game in the future, they're just not guaranteed to get all the expansions and other extras for free. Doesn't mean Notch won't change his mind and let Beta accounts get the same updates as Alpha, he's just waiting to decide for sure just to make sure he has options for income later in the future. No money = no development.

    I don't think that makes sense... Beta was already more expensive than alpha and if beta players want DLC they have to pay even more?!

    So, $10=More free stuff.
    $15=More money for notch.
    :Skeleton:

    Beta is still $5 off the final release price of $20 in the future. The account features of Alpha was a bonus for pre-ordering the game way early. Nobody paid for free future updates and all that so don't factor that into the price.


    I think the change was mainly for legal reasons. I *think* Notch said that all minor updates and bugfixes will almost definitely be free after release, but if he wants to release expansion packs and charge for him he can do it legally. With the previous 'every update's free' layout, that was not the case.

    posted a message on What do you have equipped in your inventory?
    1 Sword
    2 Pick
    3 Shovel
    4-8 Anything situationally useful, usually cobble/meat/dirt
    9 Torches

    I've been killed so many times over due to my 'item arrangement over survival' instinct. I pick up dropped items from my previous death, and sit there in the open to arrange them correctly. Suddenly, creeper! Repeat.

    The rhythm of mining makes a decent, beat, actually. Until you hit an ore block and your tempo is thrown off.

    The results of a REAL LIFE day's worth of mining and six dungeon raids. I did, however, get them back since I died to a ninja zombie just shy of the exit.

    I'd get too OCD about it being asymmetrical, otherwise this design is quite nice. Drowning is inefficient compared to lava, though...

    I can honestly say no one will even bother watching if you use something as low quality as Hypercam. Try it, perhaps, and see if you like making videos. If so, I'd suggest investing a little money in Fraps, as for the editing I prefer Sony Vegas but you can just use WMM.

    Calm4 I think, it only appears if you've played Classic since a little while ago as far as I've heard.

    If in SSP:
    Build a giant effigy of myself on it.

    If in SMP:
    Rig it with TNT, wait for someone to come across it, and pull a conveniently placed lever when someone's established their base on it. I prefer secretive underground bases if there's anyone else around.

    Ah, the time where I was mining some stuff near lava for several minutes, finished, then turned around and saw a Creeper staring me right in the face, almost as if he was WAITING for me to turn around. I jumped out of my chair at that point, since it had been utterly quiet for a while before.

    Also, I died.
