    See, it's hilarious because instead of not replying to a topic they don't care for, they reply, and are openly dismissive, off-topic and all around not very appropriate, all the while, bumping the topic for no reason other than a smug sense of self-satisfaction.

    Any more self-satisfaction and they'll be wanting a Braille version of Minecraft, but that's beside the point.

    That's really neat about how many dungeons you've found, but a few more details, a few pictures and perhaps something unusual about these discoveries might make it more interesting for readers, though. Thank you for sharing and I am happy for you that you've had an experience that you enjoyed.

    That's pretty awesome, it'd be handy to add a few more options, like a body-burster with a pressure plate and TNT which drops into water, or something along those lines?

    You're just contributing to the problem by doing this. People do this three or four times a week, they get so riled up about something, they make these "be-all-end-all topics" that are exactly the same thing they're speaking out against, and then they're forgotten, just like the rest of the spam posts. but they're forgotten quicker because nobody really likes being yelled at or scolded, they like doing it to others, which they're relatively free to do in those other threads.

    Posts like this will never work, because nobody really believes that the rules apply to them, not even you in your own post, you in indirect words, state, "I am breaking this rule, but it's okay, because other people break it worse." They think to themselves "My suggestion doesn't belong with the rest of the feeble ideas in the forgotten Suggestions forum, it belongs where Notch can see it! Bask in it!" and this thread will never stay at the top of the charts, particularly without being stickied and as such, will not stand as an example for future individuals that might post in the wrong forum, as a genuine mistake. As cross as it is to say, it is all utterly hopeless, but at the same time, it is all meaningless and so, if you don't let it get you down, it can't.

    Ah, yes, those devious trolls, sparking a lasting conversation, in which the only flaming is coming from people who've contributed nothing to it, but saw the title and decided to go and rant for no apparent reason, like those yellowish-green monsters of lore that live primarily under bridges, I wish I could remember what they're called.

    Palins! Close, but no cigar, I just can't remember.

    Okay, I just had the greatest idea, I've ever had.

    Some far-flung update, Notch implements salt blocks as a new mineral under the sea, to give people a real reason for underwater mining. In the same update, he also adds the ability to combine ham, fish or any other meats added in the interim with salt to increase the healing power of the item...As a surprise, if you combine salt and a water bucket, you get a new item...

    On the surface world, hostile tribal-looking Hunter Pigmen, begin appearing and attacking players, when killed they drop the new surprise item...Brine along with bones.

    They were attempting to...brine you! The hero of the game!


    This joke progressively got lamer as I wrote it.

    Quote from Diamond_Duck »
    I'd like to point out a few things.

    1. You do maintain that it can be mitigated through gradual exposure, as mentioned and rejected earlier in this topic.
    2. The idea that we should change the game (as I believe was suggested in the first post) because of a minority fear condition is still unjustified. I know of a game (a bad game but a game non the less) that allows you do alternate between playing as a spider and a skorpion, fighting the each other occasionally. Can you honestly tell me that this game should remove (or censor) it's (almost entire) gameplay? Many, many games have spiders in them. Little big planet for example, has spiders that dangle down and get you at points in the game. They are more likely more detailed than Minecraft, should there be an Arachnophobic option in that simple E-rated game?

    We get it, you are afraid of spiders, but that doesn't justify anything. Actually, it's really simple to delete squid textures. (as mentioned earlier, and possibly already accepted as a solution)

    So to all you out there defending the OP, yes I get it, it's a real condition, and we shouldn't just suggest for him to grow a pair. But honestly, the idea that anything needs to be done on a more-than personal level here is obsurd.


    Just to fit in...Lulwut?

    Dude, she's not suggesting we remove squids, she made a passing comment about the ability to pick and choose which mobs do spawn, a request that is really very common, you see people asking all the time for the power to remove cows because they rampage on farms, chickens because of all the conspiracy theories, and pigs, well, even I want pigs gone, the bright pink, clearly domesticated animals just don't fit in with what I think Minecraft is. I could link you to a mod, created specifically to give this power to the player. Nobody's trying to remove all fictional depictions of scary animals, or infringe on you at all, or infringe on anyone, but for a feature that almost everyone would enjoy at one point or another ("I only play on Hard, but Creepers ruin big projects, so I'd take Creepers out of the equation for a few weeks, but still be able to fight my zombies.") So, yes, in a way it was suggested that a feature be added, "the game be changed" but not to anyone's detriment.

    I haven't been outside in almost six years, the outside terrifies me, people terrify me, spiders, too, and pigs, all animals with hooves. I can't be around or look at birds, because they scare me so much, it makes me sick to my stomach, because I worry that their beaks might break off since they appear to be poorly attached, even though I know differently. I won't drink milk, or eat the majority of diary products because they scare me, I haven't had cake since I was six. Yes, I'm not bothered by digital representations of the majority of these, but I'm also not rushing out to collect sugarcane. I have nothing but sympathy for the for the original poster, and if she can be assisted, then there is absolutely no reason to oppose it, especially if it wouldn't infringe on anyone else.

    There is no point in arguing, because you're not arguing for anything, just against nothing.

    right click the wall


    Pressure plates are horizontally oriented only, you can't put one up on a wall, and have it hang vertically, is what he is trying to communicate.

    Are you using the term "pressure plate" interchangeably with "button" as it seems you are? Buttons are little rectangles that you can place on walls, pressure plates are stone or wood, and are activated by individuals walking on them, and can only be placed on the floor.

    Yep I got one too. Luckily I have a launcher that gives you a choice between updating or not.


    Pirate?


    Yes, he has functionality that Notch plans to implement, surely, he hates freedom, America, apple pies, and the odd little school girl that knocks on the door to sell him thin mints, even though tagalongs are clearly superior.

    I can see how so many people got confused though, Notch really wasn't very clear in that Tumblr update.

    A large expanse of forest I haven't even been in is one fire. WTF?!?


    Lava was exposed on the surface, caught a tree on fire, so on and so forth down the line. it is very frustrating, takes forever to fix because of infinite burning logs.

    I had hacked materials in my inventory. (INVedit)

    What sort of materials? If your stuff (where you died) is close to your spawn, maybe it's trying to display miniblocks that don't exist in the game's files?

    Upload the save so we can try it.


    If that's the case, then time will still pass and the blocks will de-spawn if you wait a small period of time prior to attempting it.

    By small, do you mean young? Minecraft hasn't existed long enough to have such associative history.


    I think it was meant colloquially, and in jest. "Yesterday, I fought my first creeper, I was younger then, bright-eyed, bushy tailed, I could have changed the world." "Now? Now, I'm a broken down old wool-herder, looking for a one way ticket out of this town on the back of a silver rush." More accurately,as in he's grown since then, not literally, but into a better player.

    Quote from Karacus »
    I thought it was "Slowsand" not soulsand.


    It's both, it's slowsand because it slows your movement and the movement of mobs, and it's soulsand because the default texture has faces stuck in it, as if it is comprised of souls it has devoured, or at least contains.

    Quote from Tsukihime »
    Yeah I tried that and I give up. I can't even watch spiders from a distance. When I see a spider, I usually either get someone else to kill it, or kill it with something(a designated box I have poking around my apartment, aptly named the Spider Slayer) all while either crying or talking to someone on the phone for support or a combination of both. I can't get to the first stage, let alone continue onward(oh yeah, sometimes the spider lives and ends up on the box. In which case I drop the box and to go another room to bawl my eyes out while trying to find another Spider Slayer. Yes I'm that bad).


    I know exactly how you feel, I constantly, despite being a mostly physically able person, apart from my right leg which I set on fire as a child (which started the hobby) I constantly walk with a cane, that was passed down to me from my grandfather because when I needed it, I realized how easy it was to kill spiders with it, and I could never give that up. I am a 21 year-old adult male and I walk with a cane so I can kill spiders, it's hard being weird.

    Although, at any given time, all I need is a Bedazzler and I can get an adjective added to my slaps.

    As for your problem within the game, I would suggest maybe either following the instructions another provided, or perhaps using a program such as MCEDIT to remove all of the water that you don't necessarily need so you can avoid them as often as possible.

    My biggest mistake? I build a really fancy, really nice wood cottage, trunk roof, two bedrooms, a fenced in and secure farm. I then installed a...fireplace...

    It burnt to the ground, almost.

    I rebuilt...

    It took me almost twenty in-day games to build it both times.

    I built another fireplace, a better fireplace, this one there was no way I could burn anything down.

    Fire spread almost immediately, which I managed to punch out, despite having to break through a window, in the middle of repairs, I forgot to destroy the lava that was my fire place, I did not make it in time for the third fire. This may seem like three mistakes, but really, my biggest mistake is fireplaces as a whole.
