    Most threads are created by a separate account. IP banning is also not a practical means of making spam go away as it is very easy to circumvent.

    Oh for the love of... Guess I'm not sleeping as early as I wanted to.


    I just removed six pages of it and there's likely to be more. I can't be around all the time to remove it but I can do so in sweeps.

    posted a message on Official Minecraft 1.8+ Update Notes and Discussion
    To cut down on the redundant threads regarding upcoming update additions, the MD section staff have decided to make a single thread for not only the upcoming update, but all updates yet to come. When a new update comes out, this thread will continue to be used for whatever the new upcoming update is.

    • If the thread is out of date, message me as I do not actively keep track of the snapshot news. I merely take over if no one else is doing it. I will try keeping the thread up to date as much as I can but please send me a message if a snapshot is missing and I will try to see to it.

    Due to post character limitation no further notes can be listed in this thread. Please visit the following link for information about further developmental versions: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Version_history/Development_versions#Snapshots_.26_Pre-releases

    • "A whole bunch of optimizing for both the client and server […] and lots more work towards the Plugin API in the background"

    The actual enchantment calculation is the same
    One of the enchantments will be displayed in the tooltip
    The enchantments you would get on a tool will not change until you enchant something - This enchantment seed is stored per player
    Leveling up now takes longer
    Reduced anvil costs to adjust to this change - Notable: renaming items will now only cost 1 level, repairing will now start out with 2 to 5 levels and tools can be repaired longer and with better enchantments, repairing costs can no longer be kept down by renaming items

    There are 16 customization options which can be used to affect various aspects of Minecraft's terrain generator. These can be changed by moving sliders or by typing in values directly.
    Main noise scale X/Y/Z to smooth out terrain, larger values for smoother terrain.
    Biome scale/depth weight and biome scale/depth offset to stretch/squash terrain vertically based on the biomes default height settings.
    Upper/lower limit scale to make terrain more solid/riddled with holes, depending on how close the values are to each other.
    Height stretch to pull terrain upward, with smaller values causing more extreme stretching.
    Height scale, coordinate scale, depth base size, depth noise exponent, depth noise scale.

    Pistons & Slime Blocks
    Slime blocks will now push and pull blocks adjacent when connected to sticky pistons.
    Connected to normal pistons, slime blocks will only push blocks, but not pull them
    Coded by KaboPC and Panda4994[1][2]
    Up to 12 slime blocks connected to a piston in any arrangement can be moved as long as the following conditions are met: blocks do not disrupt the chain, non-moveable blocks are not in the way or slime blocks are not attached to the piston itself
    Follows all the rules that pistons follow, for example blocks which can normally be moved by pistons can be moved if attached to slime blocks
    Allows for more contraptions, from new redstone clocks, moving devices, farming etc
    Extending a piston with a slime block on top of it will launch the entity (mobs, players, items, launched arrows etc) into the air[3]

    • World border
    The warning, a red-colored aura seen when within a certain distance of the world border
    Only visible on Fancy graphics
    Outside the border, the warning is at full strength
    Inside the border, the warning gradually gets stronger as the player approaches the border
    If the border is stationary, the warning is first seen as the player passes the warning distance, default 5 blocks from the player's location
    If the border is shrinking quickly enough, the warning will be first visible at the warning time, default 15 seconds from the player's location
    New options
    /worldborder damage <buffer|amount>
    buffer (default 5) is the distance (in blocks) into the barrier before a player starts to become damaged
    amount (default 0.2) is the amount (per block) of damage a player will take, for each block-distance the player is past the barrier's buffer
    /worldborder warning <time|distance>
    time (default 15) is the advance notice given (in seconds) to a player, using the red warning, that a shrinking world border is approaching their location
    distance (default 5) is the distance (in blocks) at which the red warning will start to appear, as a player approaches the barrier
    The border in the Nether is now the same size as that of the Overworld
    Portals
    Traveling to the Nether will now not create new portals outside the boundary
    It is still possible to emerge at an existing portal outside the boundary

    • Spectator mode
    Spectators now have a UI to teleport to other players
    Activated by mouse middle-click, or pressing a number key
    When more than 8 players are available to choose, the sides will be replaced by arrows
    When teams are set up, teams can be selected individually to only display that team's players
    Both number keys and the 'pick block'-button together with the scroll wheel can be used to control the interface
    Teleportation works across dimensions
    "Far from complete"

    • Pistons & Slime blocks
    Slime blocks can now push entities sideways and downwards when attached to a piston
    When they are on the ground, entities are pushed less

    • Block meta data

    • Slimes
    "Slime sizing was moved to a post-spawn method, so the slime's canSpawn() method would report spawnability based on the initial size, not the final size. There is an added secondary check which fixes the issue."

    • Splash
    "Run, coward! I hunger!"
    "Blue warrior shot the food!"
    "Warning! A huge battleship "STEVE" is approaching fast!"

    "cull" renamed to "cullface", specifies the opposite of which neighboring face causes culling to occur
    Example: if you have an east-facing face but want it to be culled along a different axis (let's say Z), you would specify "cullface": "north" or "cullface": "south".
    Rotation made more verbose, it is now more clear that it can only occur on a single axis
    Example, the rotation for one of the two faces of the "cross" model is now: "rotation": { "origin": [ 8, 8, 8 ], "axis": "y", "angle": 45, "rescale": true },
    The folder models/blocks/meshes was removed and model files are now stored in models/blocks.
    The folder blockstates was added and stores the model selection files previously found in models/blocks.

    /replaceitem <entity|block> ...
    Can replace items in any inventory, including the inventories of mobs such as zombies
    Full syntax:
    /replaceitem entity [amount] [data value]
    /replaceitem block [amount] [data value]
    Example: /replaceitem entity @e[type=Zombie] slot.weapon minecraft:iron_sword 1 0 will give all the zombies iron swords
    Example: /replaceitem entity @p slot.hotbar.0 minecraft:fish 4 2 will put 4 clownfish in the players first hotbar slot
    Example: /replaceitem block ~ ~-1 ~ slot.container.5 minecraft:redstone_block 1 0 will put a redstone block in the 6th slot of a container 1 block beneath the player

    • Debug Mode world type
    Useful for resource pack makers
    Hold ⇧ Shift and cycle through "World Type" to select it
    Spectator mode recommended to avoid crashes (you can use creative mode too without any effect on some machines)
    All possible blocks with all possible data values are generated
    They are arranged in a grid across height y=70, with a barrier floor at y=60
    Blocks placed are deleted, and blocks destroyed are restored
    There is a special generator option preventing this. It is called "debug_all_block_states". If you change this to "flat" or "default" in NBTexplorer, you will be able to interact with the world. Only for a short period though, on most machines there will be lots of lag or the game might crash. (Not recommended to play survival on)

    Changes

    • Commands
    /execute
    Now has a detect argument (sub-command, only works when used with execute)
    Allows the execute command to run only if a block is detected at a specific location relative to the target
    Example: /execute @a ~ ~ ~ detect ~ ~-1 ~ minecraft:grass 0 say You are standing on grass.
    /worldborder
    Now has an add argument
    Similar to the set argument, but can be used to add (or remove) a certain number of blocks to the world border distance
    Negative numbers can be used to remove blocks
    Example: /worldborder add -75 will shrink the world border width by 75 blocks
    /fill
    Block limit changed from 4096 to 32768 blocks

    • Command Blocks
    X/O button next to "Last output" in commandblock to turn off the last output string

    • Customized world type
    Has an ocean monument toggle

    • Resources
    Reworked 3D resources, adding the possibility of new blocks with multiple textures

    • Swampland
    Changed generation of the marsh-like areas[3]

    • Furnace
    Empty furnaces will now only accept fuel and empty buckets in the fuel slot

    • Item Frames
    The wood part of the frame now uses the oak texture rather than the birch texture

    • BlockStates
    Switched to only/mostly using BlockStates in the code, though not all block combinations are BlockStates yet

    • Block models
    Instead of specifying uvs, you can now choose textures to be projected onto the model

    Gameplay

    command blocks
          and
    signs
            Allows a
    command block
            or
    sign
            to increase a certain score in the
    scoreboard
            when it runs successfully

              The command will increase the score based on the number of items/blocks/entities/successes

            • For example, a command block with this tag running a command which affects items (e.g. /give) will cause it to update the score based on the number of items given

          • Usage: {CommandStats:{AffectedItemsName:"playername", AffectedItemsObjective:"objective", AffectedBlocksName:"playername", AffectedBlocksObjective:"objective", AffectedEntitiesName:"playername", AffectedEntitiesObjective:"objective", SuccessCountName:"playername", SuccessCountObjective:"objective"}}

            • After the mode there are currently 4 possible stats that can be updated: SuccessCount, AffectedBlocks, AffectedEntities and AffectedItems
            • For example: /stats entity @a set AffectedBlocks @a Test will update a scoreboard objective named 'Test' for all players whenever a command is performed relative to them, the objective will update by the number of blocks affected by the command since the stat was set to AffectedBlocks

    posted a message on recommended Touhou game

    I recommend starting on normal since you're punished in most of the games for trying to beat it on easy (not the best ending, don't unlock extra, etc). It makes you build up skill that you wouldn't earn on easy and the patterns aren't too overwhelming for starters. Might be hard, but practice makes perfect.

    posted a message on what is the fastest way to get wither skulls

    If you want a better chance for skulls use a looting III sword + modify the fortress to make spawns a little better (others may have touched upon that already).

    Patience is required. Skulls are rare drops even with Looting III.
