    Quote from Master_Subs»

    I also do not like the direction the game is taking, the indie aesthetic of the game is being lost, but it is still there, I sow, the game is moving away from two of its most important bases (or rather I would need to feel more in them) .
    I am talking about mining and crafts, it is literally in the name, MINE-CRAFT, to be able to build what you want in a world of cubes. Mojang has clarified that they do not add new blocks like vertical slabs, since they want users to use their ingenuity to create wonderful things, and also blocks with new textures and colors will always be in each update, so they could add tools to facilitate the construction, and that these can be used in survival.
    And on the side of mine, although they already made an update of the caves modifying everything that already exists regarding the caves, something more is still needed, in so many years they only added one new mineral?
    The game has been moving away from its foundations and is focusing more on exploration, and I would like you to change that.


    Well. The thing is: It's not indie game anymore. Not after Microsoft bought Mojang. It's now part of big publisher catalogue of games and development studios.

    I personally am fine with the way the game is going. You can still mine and you can still craft. Exploration has always been kind of part of the game, as caving (no matter what iteration of cave formation it is, the old or the new) is in fact one form of exploration. You explore the caves, while mining resources.

    Its a blast. I started a Minecraft Alpha world this past weekend and I've been playing on that non stop, even added a few old mods that I used to play with to help transition the process. Gosh it feels great being back in simpler times. Doing everything by hand and not being able to switch into creative mode to get something I need. And the biome colors. The minty green and jungle green lush grass color. That is what I miss. People want to talk about survival minecraft. Please. Commit yourself to trying Minecraft Alpha or Beta before 1.8 for at least one day. That is true survival hahaha. It takes me back to my days in Alpha


    But lose the magic? No. I mean the game might have lost its flavor in later versions but the magic and appeal is still there.



    I tried one Beta version before Beta 1.8 year or two ago. It bored me to death within 5 minutes, so I just hopped back to modern version.
    But it's good, that you enjoy it. But on to the topic. This is again a topic started by someone, who is pretty much blinded by the nostalgia about old days. Without realizing, that they can play the old versions, if they want to. It's not that hard to go back and enjoy your favorite version of the game, like you did, for example.
    Each to our own, in the end. It's not worth debating about preferences, in the end.

    posted a message on Has the chance of finding coal, iron, gold, diamonds decreased with 1.18

    They are doing ore distribution changes for the 1.18 thanks to deeper caves and higher world height limit.

    And much of the ores (including diamond) has "reduced air exposure".

    The ore distribution that's implemented as of now (Snapshot 21w44a) was first included in Snapshot 21w40a.

    posted a message on Minecraft migration cape

    It wouldn't be migration cape, if it would be given to everyone. The idea behind it is to thank the players from migrating their accounts.

    So, obviously no support.

    Quote from steven4547466»

    When I saw the notification to migrate my account to microsoft, I thought sure why not, I'll have to do it eventually may as well do it now. However, I didn't go through with it because it seemed like it was going to use my xbox gamertag as my name. I have a major problem with this because I can't use my name on my xbox gamertag because it's more than 12 characters. Honestly if microsoft ruins minecraft even more I'm not sure if it'll even be worth playing. Essentially what I'm asking is this: is the xbox gamertag your new username, and if it is, is there any way to avoid using their stupid xbox gamertag as your in game name?


    I already migrated my account, and I can say to you, that it won't use your Xbox gamertag as your Minecraft gamertag.

    posted a message on Mojang is slacking Notch used to update way faster and he’s 1 person
    Quote from kingcobra12656»

    Notch barely added anything to Minecraft?! You wouldn't be here if not for him..... xD


    Well... Most of the stuff we have on the game now has been added after Notch sold Mojang and Minecraft to Microsoft, so... He kinda didn't add that much to the game. And most of the stuff he added were on extremely small updates.

    Quote from The_Shadow»

    Has there been any word as to when the next snapshot will come out? I haven't seen any, but I've been rather busy lately.


    Not really, but I'd expect them starting to release new snapshots in September. Since the Minecraft Live will (most probably) take place in September again. Most of the developers are still on vacations, so not much happening on Mojang atm.

    posted a message on Minecraft is now R-rated in South Korea
    Quote from webrosc»

    Mojang have complied with Korean laws without having to release a new version which they would likely have to work alot on as the game runs like a server even when playing offline


    Plus there actually aren't such thing, as "South Korean" version. There's only Bedrock and Java. That's all.

    posted a message on The 1.17 Mess
    Quote from The_Shadow»

    So... You know 1.17 was split in two, but you don't know that Mojang gave an explanation? When even the briefest search would have given you that information? We discussed it in detail on the 1.17 opinions thread, even. There's several links there. There's also a link at the Minecraft wiki.


    Why are you posting on this topic when you haven't made even the slightest effort to understand the issue? But I guess it's easier to run people down without pesky things like information.


    Probably because OP thought it is just easier to start a new topic to (basically) whine about it without actually trying to understand the issue. Or god forbid actually search for the information why the update was split in two. That would be too much to ask for, right? /sarcasm

    posted a message on Minecraft Worlds Look Ugly Now

    Good point. I have noticed, that if I spawn to swamp, there will be mountains and Dark Forests closeby too. Quite frequently, actually (but I also have had Jungles generate next to Mountains and other colder biomes).

    The game would need better biome generation, there's no denying that.

    posted a message on Tiny Turtle Glitch

    That's actually baby turtle, if I am not mistaken. They hatch pretty small, but I haven't never seen them spawn naturally on any version of the game...

    But that doesn't mean, that they wouldn't spawn naturally.

    posted a message on Minecraft Worlds Look Ugly Now

    I disagree with you. My current single player world has nearly all biomes within 2000 to 3000 block radius from the spawn, and I actually like the world generation the way it is now (minus the mountains, can't wait to the new mountain generation coming in Caves & Cliffs part 2).

    You also can set the game to have "large biomes", when starting new world, so it wouldn't feel as claustrophobic.

    But be prepared to end up in the middle of gigantic mountain biome or birch biome (which I personally like, but I'm bit weird anyway).

    While I indeed don't agree with you. I can't claim, that you would be the only one who has nostalgic feelings towards the world generation of Alpha and Beta versions of the game.


    In the end, everyone has their own preferences.

    posted a message on Release date for 1.17?

    Slicedlime (Java version Tech lead) did tweet yesterday, that they ran into an unexpected problem. And didn't release snapshot yesterday because of that. But in that same tweet he said, that they're going to release pre-release for 1.17 today.

    So, it might be ready to be released at some point in June.

    1.14


    -village and pillage

    MY OPINIONS:

    The textures. oh my gosh the textures... WHY. dull. boring. contrasting in the wrong way. too smooth for minecraft. minecraft is BLOCK GAME, not smooth retro top-of-the-line pixel art. I have nothing against the art as a whole, it just doesn't fit minecraft, it genuinely feels dull. Additionally villagers became too overpowered and predictable, trades are too cheap for too much. villages look better, but that isn't necessarily good, it makes the player feel as if the world is built for them, and not the player building the world for themselves, if the villages are already incredible, there is no need to build a base or anything to improve the world. Also when you find a village you essentially have infinite food (bread) from the hey bales. the update isn't well thought out from a game play perspective.


    You do know, that you can still use the old textures, right? You can find them under Resource Packs menu as "Programmer Art".This is exactly the same thing, as with the launcer: Mojang still let's you play whichever version you want. And they still let you play with old textures. Whining about the textures, and new stuff added, when you can play either old versions, or with old textures is quite frankly redundant. Of course, that's the case with Java edition only. Bedrock pretty much makes you play with new stuff and textures... Another reason why I prefer Java, btw.

    -nether update

    MY OPINIONS:

    why mojang, why you gotta do me like that? NETHERITE? N-E-T-H-E-R-I-T-E? they just dated every single minecraft LP, SMP, post, everything. Diamonds have always been the best, and now... netherite? bribery to get me to check out your awful nether "revamp"? it seems like they just WANT a bunch of clickbaity titles "FOUND NETHERITE AT 3AM??? (GONE WRONG) (I LOST MY STUFF)" They just want to be more popular, which don't get me wrong is good from a buisness perspective, but what it feels like is just a simple pump and dump scheme, which is harsh wording but you get the point. Also why did they have to rename pigmen, really? don't BS me and tell me that it's for "inclusiveness"... it's for headlines, it's a lame attempt at rebranding for popularity.


    Really. You nitpick about stuff, that's COMPLETELY, like C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E-L-Y optional to use? Don't like it? Don't use it. It's nothing else, than slight durability upgrade to diamonds anyways. Awful nether revamp? From what? That extremely boring and pretty much useless old nether, that didn't have anything other worthwile in there, than Nether Fortresses? The old Nether was criminally neglegted, when compared to overworld, at least now there's something worthwile in there.

    The game is not minecraft anymore, it's more traditional, like terraria. don't get me wrong, terraria is great, but terraria is in no way minecraft. And don't even get me started on the dream smp and mcYT. It just feels like minecraft is not the same as it was in 2012, I know games change, but this isn't just natural change, it's bad management. and don't tell me that they can't please everyone, because they had been for the last 10 years, and don't tell me to just play old versions, because I do that already and it's not the same knowing what the future holds for the game. Sorry if that came off really heated, I'm just pissed at microsoft.


    You can be as pissed to Microsoft, as you want to. But the truth still is, that they don't add anything to the game. Nor do they remove anything. They bought Mojang as well, and are letting Mojang handle the development of the game. Microsoft only bough Mojang (and Minecraft) to get the money out of the game. That's all they're interested about the game. In other words: Mojang is part of Microsoft game studios now.

    And of course Minecraft isn't the same it was in 2012. Every game evolves. Except EA Sports games. But that's besides the point and off topic, so that's all from that.



    Good thing, that you stated, that these are your opinions. Majority of your points can be nullified by my earlier lines, that I added between some of your points on the quote block: "Mojang still let's you play whichever version you want. And they still let you play with old textures". And from here we get to on of my age old points: Most of the stuff added lately is for builders, and explorers (like me). Like you have stated, these are your opinions. Some people (like you) find the new stuff flashy, when some people (like me, for example) welcomes the new stuff. There's not much, that can really be added to the game anymore, that wouldn't of been already added by modders at some point in time. Some people just don't want to mod the game, and therefor naturally want new content. Of course on the other hand, there's people, like you. People, who are so deep in their nostalgia about older versions, that they will see whatever new stuff Mojang is adding to the game as "unnecessary". While indeed change isn't always good, but in Minecraft's case (which still let's you play whichever the bloody version you want to play, mind you, and you already stated, that you play old versions, so what's the problem then?) the game would of died long ago, if your kind of people would of been in charge of it.

    Games die, if there aren't anything new added. Not when there's something new added.

    But then again, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I aplaud you from your opinions, but like I said. You can still play old versions, if you want.

    Mojang isn't making you to play newer stuff, if you don't want to.

    Honestly I'm beginning to doubt more and more the ability of Microsoft to make not bad updates, like don't get me wrong, updates from the last 3 years have been pretty awful, but this is just the cherry on the cake... wow





    Sorry if this feels rude but I don't get it. What was so bad about the previous updates? What about each update did you not like? and what's wrong with the current update?


    Plus not to mention, that Microsoft actually isn't the one making the updates. It's still Mojang. Microsoft doesn't do jack to the game, they just oversee their investment. Plus, it's kinda redundant to blame Mojang from "bad" updates. When they have been lately adding stuff, that has been voted to be added to the game by the players.
