Jun 5, 2013Just a tiny suggestion and all but, could possibly something be added to tie them all together and show our support for the game?Posted in: Suggestions
I've owned the PC version for a long time, then the DLC Xbox360 version and I even own the new Disc Xbox360 version, as well as the mobile version.
Would be nice if fans like myself got a little something to show how much we support the game today. I even got the foam sword and pickaxe for fun's sake.
Would be pretty sweet to give some sorta little bonus, maybe a theme on xbox 360 or a cape or something to the account to show players who support Minecraft by purchasing all the versions even though they might only play on 1 or another.
Shouldn't be too hard to link Xbox and PC names together (via Email?) to have accounts share the bonus. Might be more difficult for other versions.. but even something for owning Pc, XB360DLC, XB360 would be nice.
Apr 18, 2012Kinda just... stumped on this.Posted in: Legacy Support
I was on Windows 8 and finally had enough of it and formatted to head on back to Win7 (win 8 is ...shiny and all, but has a lot of issues with basic functions, and I don't mean drivers and stuff)
So I get Win7 booted, grab my GPU drivers, get flash and java up to date and head on over to good ol' minecraft.net to make my 1 second download.
Well.. that's where it stopped. Every single time I try to log in - it says "Login Failed" after about 30 seconds. Tried to force update, tried admin mode, tried freeing up the bandwidth (literally no other machine on this morning, watching my resources I could see I was the only one online at all - tried to log in - and same problem).
Odd thing is.. no one else seems to have this problem?
Can't be that Minecraft.net is down- cuz I am in ventrilo with friends and they are playing as I type. So they logged in just fine.
Mar 22, 2012Kissker posted a message on Thinking about buying Minecraft, what rating would you give it, why, and is it worth it?Depends on YOU really.Posted in: Discussion
I work in real life - selling games to people.
So let me ask you these things:
Do you like being creative?
Do you like to explore and find new/unique things?
Do you accept that it isn't "high graphics"?
Do you like to Kill people a lot?
Do you like First Person Shooter Games?
Do you like to have everything planned for you?
If you answered "Yes" to the first 3 and "not all the time/no" to the last 3 - then Minecraft would be good for you.
If you like shooters more, where your story is laid out before you to follow - where you have no real options of how things look or act or build anything - then this game is NOT for you, to be completely honest.
A lot of kids come in to the store and say "minecraft sucks" and I check their purchases - it's all First Person shooter games where Imagination is not a key element or even in existence at all. You NEED an imagination for minecraft - and a bit more intelligence then the average FPS gamer.
Mar 22, 2012Kissker posted a message on Got a few systems, trying to figure out if they can run it.Really? Over 4 hours with over 20 hits and no replies? Strange.Posted in: Discussion
Rather urgent as one system is an Auction.
Mar 22, 2012@ D_Cooper I am hoping the properties change will carry over into items later as well - just a future plan they haven't worked out the bugs yet on or something.Posted in: Discussion
Be pretty amazing to have a nice selection of coloured doors for fun reasons. "don't go in the light door... it's deadly in there" "the dark door has cake"
Mar 22, 2012I would do a test.Posted in: Discussion
Downgrade back to 1.2.3. See if the lag is 'fixed'
If not - its possible something in your server changed. Someone build a Dupe machine? Mob Spawner on full? Too many Entities? These will cause lag if there are too many no matter what.
Mar 22, 2012Now, if only the properties/color of the woods would keep when you made things like:Posted in: Discussion
Pressure Plate (wooden)
And Tools. (no durability change, just be nice to have a dark/light/whatever handle to your whatever tools for personalization)
Mar 22, 2012Sure beats 2 ladders for 7 sticks eh? oh wait, what about 1 ladder for 7 sticks? Wanna go to that?Posted in: Discussion
"Glitch" is not the right word.
If you were concerned about the formula/recipe - it would be a "possible bug" not a "glitch"
Mar 22, 2012Dunno bout you but I like the changes.Posted in: Discussion
I don't have to do anything I wouldn't do. The things I do like/want are things I wished I could do in the Pre-days of MC.
Like... it would be awesome to see some of the mod "Technic" stuff added - not all the crazy modern stuff, but like Masher tools to break blocks - like sandstone back into sand, or Copper Wiring that could be placed on walls/celings and not just redstone dust on the ground (that easily gets washed over with a cave-in/flood and destroys the circuit) I don't care for the multi-tiny-blocks or anything, but little improvements.
What about a bookshelf that looks Identicle to the ones we have - but 1 book is a button to activate secret doors? Classic. Or a Torch that has lighting just like a torch - but when right clicked works like a Lever? Super classic secret doors, I smell ya!
Don't like the End myself. Don't like the dragon. Don't like strongholds - I avoid them all. Don't care much for the Ravine on top of a Ravine on top a Abn. Mineshaft inside another Abn. Mineshaft - but I am sure this ugly bug will be fixed sometime - and hopefully Abn. Mineshaft made more Rare.
Mar 22, 2012Keep dreaming.Posted in: Discussion
I highly doubt it will be anything "beneficial" or "highly dangerous" such as a chest full of diamonds or an enderdragon in the over world. (for one, it would DESTROY SMP servers)
Prolly another silly new chunk generated thing - like a smiley face outta sponges that you cannot break or something. Possibly another lit chest o' doom.
Maybe... nothing at all. Best prank ever.
Mar 22, 2012Well I got to level 50, got my diamond pick axe, and then went to my enchanting area with max books and picked a level 50 enchantment and got...Posted in: Discussion
Silk Touch 1.
The honest answer though is it depends on the item in question. Some materials enchant easier for lower levels, some take higher levels. Gold can get the 'best enchantments" at much lower level costs - however the trade off is that gold breaks a lot faster then diamond.

I don't trust microsoft not to gimp the hell outta the game and then start doing micro-charges for content. I can see the marketplace looking something like this...
Minecraft 360 - $60
Ability to mine add-on pack - $40
Monsters - $20
Sheep - $20
Cows - $20
Chickens - $20
Ability to craft items add-on pack - $40
The Nether - $80
The Aethir - $80
The Ender - $80
Option to turn off Ender Grief - $80
Multiplayer Passkey - $80/server
Minecraft 360 - On MARKETPLACE will not be $60, in fact I doubt the game will be $60 even if it were brought to Disc. Try $40 and under.
all the other crap is just bull. the base game will all be there, they didn't take say FORZA and only let you race 4 levels, having to buy the rest, or like Batman and only let you do the first mission before you have to buy the rest - no, there is a full story mode, which would be the base game/items for sure, possibly even Nether and The End. Aether doesn't exist -its a mod, get it out of your head. Passkeys died a long time ago - to easy to manipulate - that's why Xbox has pay per month instead.
So your really just mad you can't add mods. Too bad? Cry more?
Fully support the 360 choice, the universal systems (cuz no 2 PCs are exactly the same) will reduce/remove complications such as lag, HOSTED DEDICATED SERVERS will ensure everyone has a great time, and the power of the xbox360 allows for the possibility of easy construction ideas, like "saving schematics" to your harddrive for personal use or easy reproduction.
You all need to think outside the world and inside the block.
DId you ever consider they got the contract with Microsoft because it was a "can't miss" opportunity for Microsoft to get more money? Minecraft is the ONLY game to EVER sell over 3 MILLION copies of the game, before it's BETA TESTING phase even ended! You know what that means? 3,000,000 Accounts, now let's think of that in $ term, 3M accounts, all interested in a game not even done, on a System that in itself crashes/freezes/lags. Remove the problems, smooth the game play, and make it universal system = MORE accounts sold. 3 million is a lot - in fact World Of Warcraft only has like 13million accounts(most of which dupe/bot/not real players) - and it's been out for YEARS, so 3million for "never officially released' is REALLY AMAZING.
Ever think that contract was to make it more widely known to "average gamers"? Average gamers don't play PC games, they PLay Consoles anymore. Bring out a Xbox 360 - that's minecraft THEMED - and it turns heads, get's a new generation of gamers interested in something they normally wouldn't know about, and makes Sony Jelous to boot.
Was probably the smartest move Mojang had, and definately the smartest Microsoft could do - getting ahold of this golden goose before Sony or Nintendo could, and putting more sales pressure on them to boot.
Oct 25, 2011all I see are Fan-boy replies so far, whine whine whine.Posted in: News
Here's why it's a great thing, or at least possibilities of great things:
Dedicated Hosted Servers
All systems the same - all easy 100% compatible gameplay
Multiplayer achievements that mean something
More openly available 'join in' play network, face it finding servers on PC is tough for good ones, host and have lists such as the Database in multiplayer console control and it's nearly instant join access.
The only reason you don't seem to like it is - you can't mod/edit the game (and most of those mods ruin the games real Core Values, like SURVIVAL) and/or you whine you have a PS3 (that was your choice btw)
So stay on PC, play your pitiful 'everything is given to you with edit commands' servers and provide less congestion for the real players.
Jul 8, 2011Block duplication has not been fixed with 1.7.3Posted in: News
I am very disappointed.
- Corrected a block duplication bug when using pistons
- Corrected a redstone torch duplication bug when using pistons
YES, I think.
- Corrected a client crash when placing a sign in front of the piston, powering the piston and then removing the block beneath the sign
YES, I think.
- Ice blocks are now pushed without causing water streams breaking everything
NOPE, when pushing multiple ice blocks (and pulling is a whole new issue)
- Booster rails are no longer being powered magically without a power source
Have not confirmed
- Pistons connected to the end of a piston-transistor via redstone are now properly closed when the power goes out
- Doors no longer create purple particles
Confirmed 50% ?
- Hacking clients can no longer edit texts of placed signs in multiplayer
- Changed so that paintings pushed by pistons will pop off
Jul 2, 2011I have a single player block duplication machine, and I can say for sure the bug has NOT been fixed.Posted in: News
Soon as this is fixed, I see no issues updating servers, but making thousands of mossy cobble, diamond blocks, gold blocks etc ruins the game in multiplayer

*Tsk tsk* You people need to read Notch's Tumblr posts! He announced the release of Minecraft full will be on 11/11/11, and 1.8 will come a month or two before full release!
IF it were 11/11/11 it would co-release with Skyrim, which would mean Minecraft wouldn't get a lot of the attention it deserves.
Notch better push back the date - get a little more testing in, fix a few more things, tweak it out a month or more, longer, to prevent a Failed Launch Day.
ANd yea.. I have had 0 problems with pistons, but I use them in practicle ways, not trying to Destroy Blocks or Push non solid blocks (such as redstone) or break things in general (like redstone wire)
Pistons were made to push/pull solid blocks. Sand Gravel Dirt Cobble Stone etc.
And to make 'gate systems' for flowing water/lava
I have not tried more then what I listed above though, yet.

The new "SCARY" mob might be Silverfish. A silver fish. Might be the new underwater hostile mob. See the wiki.
Umm... dunno if you knew this.. but Silver Fish is a type of bug.. and a pretty ugly one at that..
Underwater hostile mobs... why not just do a shark or something. Lol.
Jun 30, 2011TO all those with "Outdated Server" message - that means the Multiplayer server you are trying to connect to is NOT on 1.7 yet (which is a good thing, since there are many crash issues) You will have to wait until the server owners decide to update to log into it with 1.7 Client (what you have)Posted in: News
As for the log in issues - minecraft.net seems to have been down a lot again - my guess - all those multi-attempting to log in, give it time.
I've been in Single player mode for a while messin with pistons- trying to replicate crashes (no success in crashing yet) However I haven't been using the DL client, but the web client, could be part of the issue.
