    posted a message on Advance Crafting Table

    A bigger crafting table may be nice to be able to condense multiple redundant crafting recipes to just one, but we don't need 12x12, 9x9, or even 7x7. 5x5 should be enough.


    And, as Gamelord said, it isn't even required, as the number of recipes possible in a 3x3 grid with the items we have is astronomical.

    posted a message on Creative Mode Needs More!

    Some of the first things you said you wanted in Creative are great ideas. However, the only feasable way Mojang will be able to put them into Creative Mode would be with console commands, and since you state World Painter as "clunky and difficult to use", you probably wouldn't be too thrilled with that.


    Even if they do input those features, they would do them in PC first, and even then they probably won't put it in consoles. The only people who would use such advanced tools are the ones who mostly play on PC.


    Lastly, the ideas you've thrown in at the last paragraph are definitely something that would only be possible in a mod, as they are niche additions only certain people want to use (including you). Also, you can already add music with noteblocks or by using custom resource packs, so technically that feature is already in the game.

    Quote from Aubinator»

    If you run the map on a server and run the terrain generation and seed differently, you should see the new generation. I have only generated the spawn chunks in the download, and it spreads you out to thousands of blocks from the initial lobby position.



    I forgot that's how Minecraft works. Cool then.

    Quote from Aubinator»
    as for advertisement, it was not my intention to simply advertise. I was merely linking the other forum to this thread to share the idea for the mini-game instead of duplicating the post, or rewriting the entire post. It wasn't until you posted did I realize it was a console thread... so I'm not even sure it is applicable?


    Alright then. Your wording seemed like an advertisement instead of a suggestion, so I took it as one. I realize you were trying to gather support for the idea, but it kinda seemed off-putting to me.

    As for the "console thread" comment, yeah, the fact that the console mini-games are for the, well, consoles, and the console version of Minecraft doesn't support all the features this map uses, it might affect how likely your idea will be accepted. However, these mini-games are packaged as separate games, so Mojang could cheat and add the versions into the mini-game and not the main game.

    Another thing I might as well mention that might make the mini-game not be accepted is it's similarity to regular Minecraft. The console mini-games you see are multiplayer games that are different from normal Survival Minecraft, however this map is only an extra challenge added to Survival. It may not be what Mojang is looking for in mini-games so it might not get accepted.

    I hope it does get accepted though. Give players a taste of Minecraft, but with a twist. It's not a full-on demo, but it isn't completely different either.

    posted a message on Nomad Survivor 2 - RUN! The World Border moves every day! (1500 Downloads)

    I really like the concept of this. I thought of something like this in a vanilla world, and it's cool to see it in action in a custom world.


    Can you include a MCEdit template so that you can use a custom seed for the world? That would give the mini-game a lot more customization. Imagine Nomad Survivor in one of those survival challenge seeds!


    One more thing though. I see that you have posted this map in the Console Mini Games > Future Mini Games forum. Your post is more of an advertisement than a suggestion, and that kinda leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Could you change the post a bit to make it fit the purpose of the forum?


    Thanks!

    posted a message on How can you get popular on youtube?

    First things first, do NOT expect to get "popular" on YouTube. All of the popularity has been taken by bigger YouTubers, so the only way to gain a following is to:

    1. Make good content.

    2. Share it around (but don't be too pushy; there's a difference between promoting your channel and spamming your channel)

    3. Ask others to share it around.


    But if you really want to get some more views and subs, here's three ways to improve.

    1. Calls to action. For some reason, people more likely to like and subscribe if you tell them too. If you don't want it to take up a lot of time, end your video by asking the viewer to like and subscribe. Bigger YouTubers are also asking for likes and subs near the beginning of the video and even throughout the video. This may not seem that moral to you, but if you want to get likes and subs really really bad, try it.
    2. GET DEM LIKES AND COMMENTS BRUH. Interaction with the video by the viewer, such as likes and comments, make the YouTube algorithm go "Ooo, this is a good video, I'm gonna promote this." Start a discussion in the comments, encourage people to like the video, and so on to increase the chances of your video being promoted by the site's algorithm.
    3. Make your videos over 10 minutes long. You notice why most big YouTubers make videos over 10 minutes long, or even just over 10 minutes long? One reason is that videos over 10 minutes allow for more ads (and these videos are usually monetized), but the algorithm likes longer videos because they keep a viewer's attention more. So, if you want even more promotion by the algorithm (and if you're trying to make money, more ads to make more money), keep your videos over 10 minutes long.

    So that's that. Hope you found this helpful. If you have any questions, PM me or quote anything you find confusing. Have a great day!

    posted a message on What's the best host to create my server website?

    These websites use XenForo to power their website, blog, and forum. But, it costs money in order to use XenForo. If you have the dough, here's the website https://xenforo.com/ but if you don't, here are some free alternatives.


    Wix pretty much has a monopoly on free website hosting. If you want a regular website, try them out. They're pretty easy to use, even though a bunch of features are blocked by a pay-wall.


    You can also make an Enjin forum so players can communicate with each other. Most servers have a forum of some sort, and a bunch have it as their main website. https://www.enjin.com/ is the URL. Again, some features are blocked by a pay-wall, but if you're just starting out who cares? There are other forum websites as well, so explore your options.

    posted a message on So...This new launcher has some HUGE issues and should not have been released

    I wonder who added that issue in the launcher, because whoever did that needs to be fired or go through a training lesson on how to bug-test something. Utterly ridiculous that the bug got through.


    [insert obligatory beta comment here]
    BUT. If Mojang/Microsoft/IDK anymore are pushing beta content toward the masses instead of making it optional until it's ready (if this still is in beta), then Microsoft dun screwed up.

    Then explain why Microsoft wanted to sue this guy all because he modded his Xbox console. Also, I love how you made fun of me and my post, not like you do that to other people on here as well.



    Because modding a console and modding a game are two completely different things.
    Modding a console usually breaks a console's warranty, which means you can't take it to Microsoft to fix it, and if the console can still get online after being modded, WOAH GUYZ WE CAN DOWNLOAD C00L HAX ON THIS XBOX AND WE WON'T GET BANNED HECHHECHHECHHECH because if you build it into the OS or a part of the system the Anti-Cheats won't detect, noobs will be destroyed.

    Microsoft probably just wanted to make sure nobody was installing hacks from COOLXBOXHAX107.COM, so they leaped at the first opportunity.

    ---

    Also, I thought the launcher was still an optional beta at this point. Guess I'm wrong. Will check out later, since I haven't played MC in months.

    posted a message on OH NOES MINECRAFT_SERVER.EXE NO LONGER EXISTS!!11!! HOW WILL I MAKE A SERVER NOW??111!!!

    Hey.

    I had the same reaction as you did.

    Not only in the new website, they buried the server files in another page, but they also removed the Windows-only .exe that will happily make the server for you.

    IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, RIGHT??!!!


    But, here's a secret for all of you still mourning over your little-bit-less-powerful PC Master Race:


    You don't need the .exe version on Windows in order to run a server. You can use the .jar.

    Yes, that's right, the .jar file is all you need.

    Here's how to set it up:

    For those who don't want to listen to a random guy on the internet:

    There's already a tutorial. By Mojang. Yes. Go look it up: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Setting_up_a_server

    It's a pretty good tutorial.

    Now, let's get right... into the tutorial. (I know I'm terrible)

    This tutorial is for Windows only, since that's the OS I use.

    Step Null: Download the latest version of Java.

    This should be obvious, but in case it isn't... https://java.com/en/download/ https://java.com/en/download/ https://java.com/en/download/

    Step Uno: Download the server.

    Go here https://minecraft.net/en/download/server and download the latest version of the Minecraft server. Once it's done downloading, put it in its own folder. The server will make new files where it is run, so don't run it in your downloads folder or something. Make a dedicated folder for it.

    Step Two: Run the jar file.

    It will run for a bit, then stop and produce a "eula.txt" file. Go into it. It should look something like this:

    #By changing the setting below to TRUE you are indicating your agreement to our EULA (https://account.mojang.com/documents/minecraft_eula).
    #Sun May 29 14:29:42 CDT 2016
    eula=false




    Change "false" to "true" and save it.

    Run the server again and you should see this:

    Tada! Your server is now running.

    Step 三 (San): Connect to the server

    In Minecraft's server browser, hit .

    Now, look at my glorious Minecraft screen:

    In the "Server Address" box, type in "localhost". "localhost" is a global server address which means "whatever server is running on this computer".

    Hit "Done", and you should see this on your server browser:

    Tada! You did it. Now you can connect to your own server.

    ONLY THE TRUE MLG WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE WHAT ADVANCED WIZARDRY IS IN THE SPOILER BELOW THIS TEXT:

    Note: This step is for Windows 8/10 only, since this uses the new "File Explorer" which comes with Windows 8 and 10.

    Step Quattuor: Making things more complicated with bats.

    BUT LONK! I DON'T WANT TO HAVE A FANCY GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE! ALL I NEED IS THE LOG, AND THAT'S IT!

    Fear not, random twelve-year-old, as I have the solution for you.

    BAT FILES!!!

    Step Quattuor.25: Wait, what?

    Batch files, or ".bat" files, are basically automated command lines. When you run a batch file, the command prompt opens and executes the commands written in the file.

    Step Quattuor.5: OK, so how does this have do do with anything?

    In order to run the jar with no GUI, or Graphical User Interface, we need to run the jar within a command prompt. To do that efficiently, we use da .bat's.

    Step Quattuor.75: So how do we do this?

    First, go to the server folder. Make sure file extensions are shown by going to View and checking "File Name Extensions". This will allow us to change file types within Explorer.

    Now, right-click anywhere within the folder. Hover your mouse over "New", then select "New Text Document".
    This is the fun part. Select the entire text, including the file extension (.txt), then replace it with "start.bat".

    A dialog box will pop up warning you the file may be corrupted if you continue. Click "Yes" anyway. There's nothing in there to be corrupted!

    If you want a visual representation of this text, here you go:

    Right click the new file you just made and select "Edit". This will open up Notepad. Type in the following:


    java -Xmx1G -Xms1G -jar minecraft_server.1.9.4.jar nogui
    pause


    Let's go over what I just put in.


    java - This is a Java command.

    -Xmx1G -Xms1G - The ammount of RAM I am giving to the server. I have it set to 1GB.

    -jar minecraft_server.1.9.4.jar - The server's jar file. The version number (1.9.4) will depend on how long it's been since this post was created you read this. Usually, minecraft.net will offer the latest version of the Minecraft server. You can find older versions elsewhere.

    nogui - What you've all been waiting for. There is no GUI. Everything is in a command prompt. Hallelujah.


    Save the file and run it. You should see this:

    Congrats! You have officially become an MLG Minecraft server owner.

    That's it! If you want more tutorials, upvote this post. I may add more tutorials in this thread related to Minecraft servers, IDK.

    Thanks, and have a good day!

    posted a message on My thoughts the "Minecraft is Dying" rant topics and the Newer Updates

    Look at the developer standpoint.

    4 million babies are born each year.

    Those babies are going to grow into kids. 6-8-year-olds.

    Those kids are going to see Minecraft.

    If those babies haven't turned to COD's, they might become attatched to Minecraft.

    Kaching. You just earned maybe a million more bucks.

    Minecraft, as it stands, attracts more people day and night.

    There is no point of stopping, because of one thing, one that keeps the world going, one that every man and woman and child dreamed about some time in their lives and maybe are dreaming of today...

    posted a message on [WIP] Five reasons why to break all the taboo of MC modding and use Visual Studio.

    *GASP*

    YOU use VISUAL STUDIO?!?! Why not Eclipse?!?! Everyone uses Eclipse?!?! Eclipse is better?!?!

    First, the facts.

    YES. Eclipse is a dedicated Java IDK, so it probably works better with Java than Visual Studio.
    But, Visual Studio may be a viable option if you already own a copy or are planning to use MC modding as a basis of your development career. Here's 5 reasons why you may want to consider it.

    1. Visual Studio is technically a program for actual developers.

    VS is Microsoft's SDK for WIndows. It features bult-in support for C# (the main language of Windows & VS), C++ (for all you game junkies out there), F# (the hipster language), and potential support for Python (the beginner's language). Technically, you can also create Silverlight programs using C#, and add other languages too (like Lua, the language for GModers, and of course Java).

    While you may just use VS for MC modding, you have the opportunity to use it for the purpose it was built for, developing actual programs for actual Windows machines.

    2. It's clean

    It has a slick Metro style to it. Everything is nicely laid out.

    [more coming soon]
