    Ergh, I'll just go ahead and tell him what to do so he doesn't post again, hopefully.

    You need Xau's HD patcher (google it, damn you), the pack won't work on its own in the texture selector.

    I skipped to the end, read HEEEEEEALP and saw the word bandwidth. I assume that you're wondering how much MC uses up. Far as I've heard it's pretty high, actually.

    It would actually not take that much rewriting to make the game generate chunks vertically as well. Certainly not a "complete game rewrite". The issue is game balance - how do you distribute the resources if the world is infinitely deep? Certain mechanics would have to be redone as well - e.g. mob spawning currently depends on the way chunks are.

    The issue with the current system is harddrive space and performance: if the chunks are too tall, your saves will be huge and loading will take a lot of time and memory. 128 was chosen as a compromise between that and building space. Moving it to 256 (or, say, 200 - numbers that are not powers of two are not a problem either) would take a bit of work code-wise, but it wouldn't break the game or anything. It would just make it even slower and eat up even more memory.


    I know very little in the way of programming, but I think the way MC bases its bit/byte/whatever usage on is capped around the current number of blocks in a chunk for memory reasons. Notch mentioned that the lighting engine would need rewriting too, if this were the case.

    On the other hand, that is indeed a beautiful build.

    Put a little cactus dispenser near/in it so that the landmine is ready all the time.

    I'd love an office building in real life with windows that are actually portals to a world of fire, pain, and suffering.

    Better to be the overlord of pigs than the overlord of small brine shrimp I suppose.

    posted a message on Why is this game so scary?
    My habit of analyzing AI behaviour has made no longer scary. Still startling at times, yes. But when I know that a skeleton on the horizon is only a threat when it follows you at a range of 14 blocks into a firing range of 8 blocks while strafing at a 1:2 ratio of blocks forward:sideways into a trap carefully crafted to exploit water physics and make escape impossible... yeah. Not too scary then. Of course, seeing a flash of a monocle in the darkness of a cave just before hearing "I sssssssay!" right next to you is unsettling as always...

    Maybe the new redstone block will use gold as circuitry in its crafting.

    It seems like some people are interested, DrKillPatient, if I make a mod that puts all of your skins into the game as separate friendly mobs, like true gentlemen, would that be something you'd like to host in the OP? I won't release without your permission either way, but I am already working on the friendly creepers, and the rest won't be hard to do. Send me a pm or something if you're interested.


    Sure, go ahead. Anyone who wants to use the skins can, so long as I'm given credit.

    I was heartily surprised when a sheep in his stunning black tuxedo dropped white wool!

    That shouldn't happen. I'll check it out...

    Agreed. Dirt and grass should return to the original (ish) state, I replaced the current release's grass with the old version for the sake of my eyes.

    Otherwise, awesome pack. My personal favorite.

    EDIT: Also, I liked cobble when it was less sharp, it makes it less of eyesore when used in big buildings. Bones as well are just outlines.

    Quality over quantity. No more than what we have now I think.
