    posted a message on Why the big hype on the words "Java Edition"
    Quote from ShelLuser»

    The issues are two fold. First and foremost Minecraft has always been a Java game, that's how this whole thing started. Therefor it has always been called "Minecraft". If you mentioned "Minecraft" you were referring to the Java edition.


    Not only has Mojang renamed 'Minecraft' into 'Minecraft Java Edition' they also renamed the Pocket Edition (or mobile or whatever) into 'Minecraft'. So now if you mention 'Minecraft' they're trying to make it so that you're actually talking about the pocket/mobile/etc. edition. And that ticks plenty of people off because Minecraft has always been Java. Basically, according to some players, the original players of the game have now been moved to the sidelines and they're no longer considered official Minecraft players. Instead anyone playing the mobile editions are now considered "official" (note: not my opinion but just what I perceived around me).


    The other issue has already been mentioned by others: the fear that Mojang could very well focus their attention completely onto the other platforms and discontinue support for the Java edition. I think those are valid concerns because it is a fact that Mojang / Microsoft might be able to make a whole lot more money on those "portable platforms". Where we can simply download any skin we'd like you'd have to pay for it on the console editions.


    It will take a long time before people make that switch, the concept the "Minecraft" means the quote-unquote "Java Edition" is so ingrained and while avid Pocket Edition players will most likely embrace the new system even they may refuse to switch. It doesn't concern me whether it's called the Java Edition or not however I will continue to call it "Minecraft".

    Umm... so? what are you asking/saying? You want help overcoming your so-called "noobishness"? Or is this a thread for "noobs"? When you make a thread you should be a bit more specific as to what you want to discuss/ask. Not to seem mean but yeah.

    Quote from Skelebling»

    I used to watch Paulsoaresjr's "Survive and Thrive" series. In the second series (after the game was released) he started to call skeletons in full gold armour "Skelebling". I don't know why but I remembered this and when I got to pick my username for my account back in 2013 I thought Skelebling sounded cool. I had thought about changing it but decided not to after I started using it on other platforms like Steam and social media. 4 years later and I have never changed my Minecraft account's name, and never intend to.


    Slightly off topic but, it seems like sleketons are the most frequently nick-names mobs in Minecraft, I've heard, Skelington, Skelebob, and Skelly, and now Skelebling.

    Quote from aNaturalCause»

    I chose my name from back in the Halo Days. I wanted something unique. So one day I was sitting there killing people and laughed because on the sceen it said you were killed by "alolipop". Thats when it clicked and became aNaturalCause. So now when I kill people, which doesn't happen very often it says you were killed by "aNaturalCause". Thought it would be funny because being shot in a game is not a natural cause.


    That's funny, I thought of making my username "YourBoss" so that it would say things like "YourBos has entered the game". I didn't because I thought it would probably already be taken, I also thought of "TheHoodedOne" or "TheHooded1" but they were both taken. There are all kinds of names that could be very funny when they show up in the game chat.

    What made you choose your username for Minecraft and/or this forum?


    I chose Hoogady because it's short for Hoogadyfoogdygoog, a word I made up. In Minecraft I'm Computernaut, I used to be coldcat747 but I thought it was kind of dumb so I changed it.

    posted a message on Need help with cool heads

    So in maps I often see custom heads especially security cameras, plants, and computers, who do these heads belong to? I'd love to use them in a map I'm making. Is there a list out there somewhere with all the best heads for map-making? And yes I know about the MHF heads.

    I would probably spend up to 30 extra dollars to have windows 7 instead of windows 10, I'm used to it and I like the way it looks, I find that windows 10 looks a bit drab.

    posted a message on Iron Nuggets? For What?
    Quote from XDGrangerDX»


    But zombies already drop iron bars, so iron is perfectly renewable. (if painfully slowly)

    I always thought they had a small chance of dropping iron ingots, not iron bars.

    I don't think they'd even notice anything out of the ordinary. I hope your server turns out well!
