Cracked minecraft is...well, people who pirate minecraft are silly anyway, but...
Although I bought minecraft without pirating it first, I can understand why some people do it. To test the game, to make sure it works on their computer, etc. But pirating it and then never buying it afterwards...unless you didn't like the game, you should buy it. Minecraft will always be an indie game, even though Mojang is far from that now. Buying minecraft will support Mojang to make better games, and help indie game companies like Mojang thrive in a big-buisiness-centered world.

Jul 15, 2012Well, it may not be traceable, but it's still illegal, and it's still just being not nice. people think it's funny, but it's just annoying and just...well, immature! It's one thing to DDoS Iran's webpage because of internet censorship (It's still kind of immature, but whatever, it's not being a douche, it's just being naive). But it's another thing to lose your temper and decide to take it out on the world. Just like it may not harm others when you drink underage, but when you do that while driving your car and texting, you're not only not caring about others, but you're inadvertently causing harm, such as how this server in question "lost several good players".Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Just accept that all DDoSers are fat 10 year olds with ADHD. Yeah being illegal won't stop people from doing it, but that doesn't mean it's ethical.
Aug 17, 2012Just because one mob gets smarter and more like what it's supposed to be (honestly, you should expect Zombies to be breaking down doors, really) doesn't mean the entire game is changing genres.Posted in: Survival Mode

Then I guess you have only been playing since 1.8 beta
first of all, the bumping is getting kind of tiring. I've seen this thread to much lately.
Second of all, this quote.
Just because someone likes the current Minecraft terrain doesn't make it ok to automatically target them as a newbie. There are veterans like me out there who have been with this game since alpha, who love every part of minecraft.
Not everybody agrees with you.
Now, there is something to be said about the...wildness of pre-1.8 terrain. There were giant cliffs everywhere, mostly. But it was a lot less neat and uniform. Some people love that. I personally loved it. But that doesn't mean I can't love 1.3 terrain, too. I can actually *gasp* build things on flat terrain! That's something that required excessive terraforming if you were to do it before 1.8.
Believe me, this debate is the hottest on the forums right now. There are fans craving for the re-in-statement of the 1.8 randomness to modern terrain. And there are dedicated players -- newbies and veterans alike -- who can stand change, and see the cup of water half full, rather than half empty. I don't personally give a crap about giant cliffs everywhere. If it was changed, it just means that Jeb has decided that terrain that didn't have giant cliffs everywhere could be a better game mechanic.

Hi everyone new here new to minecraft I'm 23 (am I too old for this game lol) anyway got this game yesterday ain't played it yet what updates do I need to get etc for single player and multi thanks in advance !
I don't believe you. Not the new part, mind you, but the 23 part. Because from your post, I got the "I'm a 13-year-old who wants to sound older online" vibe. Prove me wrong.
Aug 17, 2012Well, it depends what you want your "factory" to be. Many people make their factories to be purely function, no form. That means big holes in the ground, or cobblestone rectangles. But what you're looking for, I assume, is a good-looking factory.Posted in: Survival Mode
With that in mind, there are two ways of going about this. You could either:
A) Make it look like a real-life factory. The stereotypical factory design is something like this: You have a rectangle, and then a smaller rectangle stacked on top of it. Then out of the smaller rectangle, you have two or three smokestacks. With this, I would recommend marble with smoothstone borders and accents, and square glass windows. Then, make the smokestacks out of brick.
B:) Make it look like some random awesome-looking building, and inside have a bunch of machinery in Tekkit. With this, I have two suggestions. First, make columns. Roman columns make anything, even a modern building, look so much better. Second, use arches. They don't have to be masterfully made, but try to use arches and domes instead of squares and rectangles. With this, the materials all depend on what you're going for. A greco-roman building would have marble, brick, and stone. A modern skyscraper might have marble or obsidian, and a whole lot of glass.
Above all, look at pictures on google, and try to replicate them in Minecraft. Simplest way to do it!

not the best example, that's a far better example of sarcasm.Quote from Babadoc
That is not Irony, here's a definition of Irony:
the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
Irony is where you signal an opposition between appearance and reality. A person might be nicknamed "Tiny," but it's ironic if they're actually 8 feet tall.
Jul 25, 2012GaiaCow posted a message on What makes an LP unique? What gets you to watch new LPs?It should come naturally. A good way to practice this is by speaking your thoughts whenever you're playing a game. For instance, I was playing minecraft and a creeper blew up the beach near my house. If I was practicing for an LP, or doing an LP, I would say something like "Aaaaand the creeper automatically blows up the place which is hardest to fill back in when my OCD gets all twitchy." Or if I was playing Majora's mask and I was doing the Wind Fish Ballad quest, I could reminisce about having played the original Link's Awakening to the audience.Posted in: General Off Topic
Jul 25, 2012GaiaCow posted a message on If you Could Remove one Thing in Minecraft, What Would it Be?Posted in: DiscussionQuote from IncoherentMumbling
I would remove the newly added Vsync. It really irks me that Jeb idiotically added that negative feature.
Looks like SOMEONE doesn't know what the hell that actually means. Basically, it means that there's one code for the server and singleplayer: singleplayer, essentially, has the capability now to accomodate other players. In addition, if you WANT TO, you can host a server on the LAN. SIngleplayer is NOT going online-only. You WON'T be required to host a server whenever you play, and you WON'T be more succeptible to hackers. God, it seems like everyone thinks that an optional feature that smooths out things internally is bad only because it puts in a button to put your singleplayer world out across local area networks.

Aug 16, 2012You think Enderman are bad because of a small lava leak? I had Ocelots eating all of my chickens up. I live in a jungle where chicken a hunted down constantly by these things, meaning they are no wild chickens to be found in a 500 block radius of my house. After the incident, I built a roof to the pen so they was no way ocelots would get in. Turns out they can just spawn in the pen as long as the ground inside is grass, so I built a bunker for my chicken now and also keep several chicken in the house as back up.Posted in: Survival Mode
To be perfectly clear here : It took me an hour each time to get 2 chickens in the pen. 3 hours of my life were "waste" on hunting brainless chicken that won't react to my holding wheat half the time for some reason, and luring them back at my base by crossing a jungle dense with vegetation, full of creepers and hills everywhere. All of that because Ocelots hunt and kill chicken as part of their AI.
But I finally overcomed that challenge and in the end, it was a thrilling experience. I've been playing Minecraft for nearly a year and this was the first time in a while it gave me a challenge that I actually struggled to overcome. I welcomed it. Now I know a little bit more about what to do and not to do when you establish your base in a jungle and want chicken farms. You make a bloody bunker just for them, they are an endangered species :D.
Compare to that, endermen are trivial. You gotta change your attitude man. Or play on creative or peaceful mode where the world will never ever possibly try to hurt you. Survival is supposed to present difficulties like these. Making your house mob 100% mob proof is likely impossible. When all else fails, KILL THEM.
Jul 25, 2012I must say, a great post Gaiacow, raising some very insteresting points, I very much agree that minecraft has evolved to become better, and that new features and updates should be welcomed, as with each new feature, each new block and function, a great amount of new possibilities and ideas are generated, without which the game would eventually become repetitive and "boring". We need to be glad that new updates and features are added so frequently to keep us entertained. That is one of the things that makes this game unique, most other games rarely receive any updates/new features if any and when they do its only on one or two occasions and they eventually drop off the radar.Posted in: Discussion
On the discussion about minecraft being classified as an RPG, I believe minecraft has this RPG "feel" but not in all of its modes,in creative the gameplay and feel is purely sandbox based, there is nothing to find, you vant level up etc. But the survival game mode contains a great amount of RPG traits. When you start you have nothing and you must build your player up, like in most rpg games, get materials to make weapons, armor make a house

it depends some people are really poor well not that poor but for example i have 4 brothers and 1 sister who live in a different state and their no excatly in the best economic position ... their not butt poor but they make just enough to live and cant be wasting money all the time on video games so i thought of cracking minecraft for them again since i cant buy it myself and you shouldve seen there enjoyment when they started to play the game. If we had the money i guess we would buy it but then again......
I don't wish to make presumptions about how poor your family members are, but two things must be evident: 1) They can afford to own computers, and 2) They have enough free leisure time to play Minecraft (a game known as a timesink!). When I imagine them sat at their computer playing pirated Minecraft, I wonder: "Couldn't they have spent this free leisure time earning the $25 that Minecraft costs?" I don't mean to be patronizing, but... why not do a couple of hours of overtime at your job, or wash some cars, or just skip buying lunch a couple of days, and you can afford to buy Minecraft. And then Minecraft will give you hundreds of hours of entertainment.
As for the morality of piracy.... ughhhh, the subject is too nebulous.
Many people who pirate a piece of media are people who never intended to pay for it anyway, which means the rights-holders have not "lost" a sale. However, piracy leads to the possibility of two trends happening:
1) It leads to a culture of no-one paying for things, due to the social acceptance of piracy and the inflated sense of entitlement (that you deserve to enjoy something for free), which will indeed add up to potentially "lost" sales;
2) It leads to a culture where people maintain their enthusiasm for gaming by staying interested in games, even if they don't intend to purchase them all the time, which overall leads to a larger userbase of gamers who will purchase games sometimes.
The reason the piracy debate goes in circles is because both of these consequences can happen equally, and we'll never really know how much piracy helps or hinders the industry.
May 12, 2012Everyone knows that 1.8 Beta is when minecraft tore apart. There was so much division among the fanbase that ripples of its war still persist unto this day. The thing is, I was on the 1.8 side. I would roam these forums for quite some time, and I almost instinctively hunted down people that said that 1.8 had ruined minecraft because it angered me. People still do it, and for the most part, they're still wrong.Posted in: Discussion
I liked the adventure update, I liked the hunger bar, I liked enchantments, added content, new dungeons, and even The End. I liked all the little things that everyone hated: swamps, snow golems, cookies, brewing and leveling. I was on mojang's side with all of it because I really think, and I still do, that it brought the game forward, and made it more interesting.
However, I did something today I don't normally do. I was in a nostalgic mood, so I wanted to find a map that I knew would be worth playing on. I instantly thought of Criswel, and his top-notch maps, and how he put so much effort into them that he blew everyone else's attempts out of the water. The world he made was so comforting, and personal, it wasn't just to show off, it was something he really enjoyed, and enjoyed experiencing. I found his boat tour, where the challenge is to circumvent his main continent, Minoa, and he personally said it was his best experience in minecraft. So, of course, I couldn't pass it up.
I took that boat tour, and it was a small odyssey for me. I didn't just want to travel the world and get it over with, I made it a goal to explore the areas where he had made small bases in. I almost cried, and I almost am now. It was like exploring my earliest stages of minecraft. The buildings weren't pretty, they were functional. I expected what I had seen in Criswelvania, but I instead ran across something more honest and pure, Criswel's actual world he played in. I was amazed, and in awe of the world generation, I had forgotten just how common, and huge that the mountains were, and how aesthetically pleasing the placement of all the trees were among the landscape which was alien and yet still inviting.
I found beaches. Not small ones, but beaches that were obviously beaches. I found a cove with sand surrounded by hills, hidden from view of the sea, but a beautiful spot to stand in. It almost made me want to build a house there, but I made it a goal to travel the world, so I got back on my boat, and traveled on. I found bases, half finished, and spawners, abandoned, scattered throughout the land. I looted his houses, and rifled through what was obviously obtained through much work and time... and fun.
I kept going until I finally got lost. I forgot to make a map, and I should have. I couldn't find my way back now, so I just kept going, and there was no more civilization in sight, but my, was it fun.
Then I saw something off in the distance that made me sad. A lone tree, a weeping willow, a swamp tree. this was the end of the map, the end of the rendered world, this was as far as Criswel explored. As my boat fell one block level into the newer ocean, I saw the flat, boring, and desolate world that minecraft is now. I looked back at the wall, a plateu which nearly touched the clouds, and wider than I remembered they could ever get. I realized that all these people weren't just upset for no reason. I was upset.
For months, I've hardly played minecraft at all because I can't find a place I want to build. It all just seems so boring now. It's flat, and lifeless, and it's sucking all the creativity out of me.
I love enchanting, I love the new biomes, I love all of the new features, and there isn't one I would ever want removed from the game. I miss the old world though. The new world isn't the same, it doesn't even compare. I'm sorry to all those people I insulted back when the adventure update went live. I'm sorry because I know why you were upset.
I'm upset too because they'll never bring it back.
