    posted a message on Lost? Portal bug? Either way, it's time for an adventure
    I went down a little

    I keep hearing noises. Spiders and zombies specifically. I think i found them too.

    a large open room not to far from my portal. i saw the zombies but they walked away. the spider is standing still in a corner starring at me.

    I will never make progress at this rate. I must kill the spider.

    Part of me wishes i had my bow, but i remember i left it behind because i didn't want to lose it, just in case i was killed in hell.

    I never expected to be in a situation like this.

    My lighter is already half used up.

    I may have to resort to digging straight up.

    Death is not an option here. I've worked to hard to lose it all now.

    (you know, i wish the forums would get better servers. they always crash when something big happens. I'm not even sure if i care if they need to use adds. with the hits this place generates i would think they'd be able to afford a nice server.)

    I just started playing the Halloween update

    First thing i did was light my pre-made portal and head into hell

    I spawned on an isolated area mostly, a big wall behind me, lava in front with another section across is.

    I explored hell a little and gathered some hell blocks. I have been playing with the idea of a fire mote for my house

    i went to port out and head home

    I ported out alright, but this place wasn't my home. Somehow my portal went from my back yard to a random cave. I went back in then back out just in case.

    No luck, i was in a dark, unexplored cave, possibly cut off from the surface.

    I have 3 stone pickaxes, 1 iron pickaxe, about 60 hell blocks left after i set up a wall of fire and some lighting. a flint and sleel/iron lighter. a half used wooden sword, 2 pieces of cooked pork, and some almost used up iron armor. No torches. no wood.

    While this may be a bug, or on purpose i won't know for a while.

    However! I have killed a creeper and i shall continue my exploration of this new area.

    I will keep updating this journal in hopes one day someone may find me.

    (actually happening right now, any news on this glitch?)

    I was hoping for the torches/lanterns thing most of all, that's the one that isnt being put in XD

    Just my luck. HOWEVER. Consideringhow fast he suddenly put in all of this stuff in the list these last hours, maybe it'll get put in tomorrow or something? Who knows



    Im just really happy he got caught up with basically everything but the lanterns


    i kinda wish he did get the lanterns done.

    Now the moment he announces the change again all those lantern threads will pop up out of nowhere again.

    posted a message on Every time you post in a redundant thread...
    You bump the thread to the top of the page.

    By this point you're as bad as those who create those threads.

    Start not bumping pointless threads that you hate seeing.

    Maybe then they'll go off the first page quickly and you won't see them anymore.

    Again, start by not posting in them, and hell you can start by not posting in this one.

    Let's see how fast we can make pointless threads disappear instead of bumping each one and saying the below all the damn time.

    "OMG POINTLESS THREAD STOP WHINING *insert thread on why you think they are worthless and don't deserve updates*"

    Note - This is not aimed at the people who want it in the game, that's only natural. It's aimed at the people who make multiple topics/rants (almost all with nearly incoherent spelling and grammar) ignoring everything else that Notch has been working for.

    Seriously, grow up


    Oh, okay, now i see, *sigh of relief*

    Seconded, we really only need one thread for those who wish to keep going on about it. It's almost as bad as torch threads were, maybe worse.

    Doesn't it take, like more air, to create water?


    but is water closer to air or to water?

    It really should be like this:

    Fire: two lava source blocks
    Water: two water source blocks
    Earth: two obsidian blocks
    Air: two diamond blocks

    Yeah I like a lot of challenge, I use enough mods to warrent it, lolz.


    Quote from subzero22 »
    lol.

    Hmm maybe diamond blocks for the water slip as they are almost the same color and hard to get. Especially since you have to get 9 of them to make a block.

    Earth block could be gold

    Air block not sure yet lol.


    The problem with using diamond blocks for the air slip means that it would be the hardest one to reach, as you would need 18 diamond, and not to many people find that much before using the rest. So far everything needed to actually get to a slip is rather simple, and doesn't actually require any diamonds.

    If you were to make the air or water slip require two diamonds, then you better have some damn good ways to make it worth that much diamond, not to mention, if you want to build another gate in those slips to get out and fast travel like in the fire slip right now, then you need an additional 18 diamonds.

    So far, i don't think using diamond for either of them is a good idea.

    posted a message on Which mode do you play more?
    I play single player because it's the only mode that actually works. Once SMP health gets working me and my little brother plan on having fun.

    No one really plays multi-player because health doesn't work and it's just a glorified creative mode right now. Once it gets working, you can expect a spike in SMP servers, however i imagine most would be private servers between friends, but even so.

    SMP health is important, just because you don't have anyone to have real adventure fun with online doesn't mean that those of us who are waiting to be able to cut though hordes of zombies and shoot down ghasts while friends die around us in a horrible hell ghast vs player war, are any less important and that SMP health 'Isn't a big deal'

    . . . there definitely needs to be something better than dirt to activate the Earthslip portal. It just doesn't seem at all suited for portaling to me.


    Dragonbyte, thanks for the positive feedback, and for some really solid points to help flesh out the idea. I've quoted only a small portion of your post because I heartily agree with nearly everything you wrote, and have little else to add, except on this small point.

    I suggested soil blocks to create an EarthSlip portal because I have a job linked to agriculture, where soil is more highly valued than in most other walks of life. Still, I can agree that plain dirt might not the best choice. Much better if an Earth-SlipGate does NOT become active until it looks like this:

    :obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian:
    :obsidian: [] [] :obsidian:
    :obsidian: [] [] :obsidian:
    :obsidian: :grass: :grass: :obsidian:
    :obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian:

    This would require some patience, but it would work especially well along with the suggestion from zhauth, that the EarthSlip dimension's design ought to include strong themes evoking the concept of life, or life-force.


    you could have it so that to activate the earth slip you place the dirt and then you use a hoe to plow the dirt in the portal, instead of waiting for grass to appear.

    In fact, i don't think grass would appear unless the dirt in the portal was directly linked to other grass tile.

    ..... Nice. I like it

    Maybe the air slip could involve my long lost love, Floating biomes from InDev

    Just the idea of 4 different kinds or worlds accessible is nice. My only question is would they all affect fast travel in the same way? or perhaps could they act diffidently in terms of porting, in and out?

    Also the idea of each one having unique hazards.

    The fire slip has lava everywhere and ghasts, and the idea of the water slip i like.

    Thumbs up OP, you have made a very decent thread today.

    Quote from nootron »


    Now, instead of just another rant post ( :Notch: ), Ill provide what I feel to be perfectly workable solutions:

    1. Peaceful mode is greyed out when monsters are near, or you are below ground, or not in some already "safe state".

    2. Peaceful mode is only available from the title screen options, and not in-game.

    Either one would allow 100% of the players to play the game they way they want to, instead of catering to one group or another.


    While these two ideas are okay, they truly just give the player a run around.

    If someone is near monsters and really wants to switch to peaceful, they will just hit return to title screen, change the difficulty, then go back into the game.

    these solutions only present an annoyance to any player who currently plays like that, and have no real effect.
