    Quote from Dr. Steel

    A piston device that pushes the whole landscape away from you so it looks like your base is moving but it's actually the world that's moving.


    That actually gives me a great idea...A giant animatronic stage with waves to imitate the ocean and trees that sway, 2D zombies that shuffle...A boat that rocks.

    All those things I saw in Aqua music videos!

    Depending how deep we want this to go, we could have a mock court session for Zueskin, otherwise I say we do the whole building idea, and have him write it out. One of us could make a "visit" to him (aka leave him something), but there is a chance we could be detected.


    Again, not involved in this, and this is just a suggestion, maybe Zueskin's jail cell could be in outer space (black wool in front of any windows?) on a very small space station, the Captain's base of operations, stationed near the planet, and Zueskin's opportunity to escape happens to coincide with the Captain's bombing run (meaning he is not on the station at the time of the potential escape) so if Zueskin escapes, he has a logical way of commandeering the STEVE unit on the planet.

    You could set it up so he can activate a switch or a button which blows up the hanger where the Captain would return to, leaving the captain stranded on the planet, lurking in the background, waiting to take his revenge, but this is just an idea.

    This thread is in the wrong location, looking for servers that aren't even allowed to advertise on here and as you said, a potential flame war. I am sure it has been reported by now, and everyone else should just ignore it.

    Ron Swanson will be here to save us whenever he gets a chance, just be patient.

    Quote from Masterpimpkitty

    and that is gone if you can find an NPC village and stay there for the rest of your minecraft existence.

    As it stands, survival mode has 1 goal, which as you just said is to survive the mobs. The coming creative mode, is basically a virtual box of legos; and the eventual adventure mode should be reserved for NPC villages and any other RPG elements to be added.


    How does a village remove that threat any more than the fact that you can dig two blocks down and put a block over your head, or put it on peaceful, or build a lavish mansion and put a door on it, or build a little tiny dirt box and put a door on it. Or build a lavish mansion and put no doors on it, but no spaces large enough for mobs to fit through...

    What exactly are you trying to save here? You're constantly safe, that's why the mobs are as insidious as they are, so that they stand a chance of sneaking up on you or catching you off-guard.

    Bear Grylls? I think I've heard of him once or twice but I am definitely not a fan of his.


    Yes, thank you, that is what I wanted you to take from it.

    I didn't mean to whine, its just that I don't think that NPC villages would fit Minecraft, although, I might be OK with having NPC's that like you are survivors of whatever disaster caused your character to be stranded, But I just don't think that villages would fit with the survival theme of Minecraft.


    I need to write a script and just refer to it. "Dear Bear Grylls Fan, I am afraid..."

    There is no survival theme to Minecraft unless you play with one. The association of Minecraft and Survivalism is a mistaken one. It is not an intended element of gameplay, nor is it aimed for in game design. The word "Survival" in reference to Minecraft, refers to the fact that Notch called the first version of Minecraft with enemies, Survival, due to the fact that for the first time ever, surviving was now a concern, it was an oversight in that he did not foresee that it might be misunderstood to relate to Survivalism. The fact that what we play now is still called Survival, is due to the fact that all subsequent versions of Minecraft are descended from the Survival developmental evolutionary line. He could have called it Gazelle and you would now be posting in the Beta - Gazelle Mode forum.

    There are no other modes to the full version of Minecraft, it is simply Minecraft, as it descended from Survival. The distinction survives due to the availability of the free-to-play Creative Mode, which allows for the obsolete categories that were created in anticipation of the oft-talked about Adventure Mode, and so on, which will now simply be incorporated into Minecraft, to continue to exist.

    Depending on how easy it is to get them modern-looking, I'll either avoid them entirely or befriend one and raid all the others in defense of it.

    posted a message on buying minecraft broke my game
    Wow, when pirates turn out to be literal thieves, it kind of hurts the whole piracy argument. Notch understands why he did what he did, and knows that a lot of people will be converted by playing the pirated version, as he was. He doesn't need any further scolding, it's off topic and he clearly understands that Notch has earned his money.

    I'm afraid that I personally don't have any experience with this issue, but you might be more inclined to get help if you were more specific in the first place. Specificity means that people that do recognize the issue will come and help you, if they're so inclined. As you've got the thread titled now, it's a bit vague, innit? You may want to edit this post to have the actual error in the title.

    Just a suggestion. I hope you get it all sorted out.
