    Quote from Robert-Frans
    Well, let me say one thing about this: despite my opinion that an option to turn it off would be quite polite to do, I still see no trouble with how it was worked out now. Why? Because it is just a game and it was just for one day. One day in your entire life that you could not play Minecraft normal. I mean, I thought that I was rigid and inflexible sometimes in my way of doing, but oh boy... It is really fascinating how people can apparantly become mad with such a small thing like this. Whole populations are screaming because of hunger, sickness and disasters that are destroying their homes, many adults and children are quite slaved by us to make cheap stuff or even prostitute themselves, and what is our main problem? A game that is pranked for a day by her developers. Just one game. Just one day. A phrase says that empires are always going down by decadence some day, and it seems to be true right here. I mean, if we already can't handle such a small prank like this, how are we supposed to handle real trouble if they are coming on our way? Minecraft is not the only activity you can do. You can play other games, you can go outside, you can maybe even provide extra help in the household you are living in, you can visit a friend or family member, you can do other good or fun stuff, etc. We have lived millions year without Minecraft, so we can now also perfectly live one day without it. Sometimes you must just see the things in the right perspective. Just try to be more light-hearted in this kind of things, because this kind of small "misfortunes" can open ways to other opportunities. This april fool was really fun for a day and that day is over now. And see, we have survived. The society has not collapsed. We are still here, enjoying our game. I must say, I found the exaggerated reactions on this prank just as hilarious as the prank itself. We have maybe now revealed a little bit of our true nature and that is always good to see.

    Have you ever seen a MineCon video? Half the Minecraft population is under 13. Of COURSE people are going to flip out. All I did was chuckle at the new sounds until the "water" sound got annoying and played Kerbal Space Program. Other kids complained and a lot thought it was the server causing this "disaster", and as you know a server's population is it's lifeblood. One of the kids even beleived the Minecraft update news that the 1.9 patch was causing "glitches" with the 1.7.5 causing it to display these sounds. They are kids, what else do you expect but panic? Up until late High School a kid's only real responsibility is typically to be happy and do their chores (if kids even have chores nowadays).

    It's not that surpsing though, even adults overreact ALL OF THE TIME. Just read or watch news and you'll be sure to find the latest west-nile virus...hell, they even started NAMING WINTER STORMS as if they were hurricanes. It's ridiculous.

    All that and the best you can come up with is to attack grammar? I'm sure I spelt something wrong too.

    It wasn't the best I could come up with, but it's my favorite response to poor grammar. It certainly is more polite than "SPELL YOUR WORDS RIGHT, YOU HUMAN GARBAGE AND GO BACK TO SCHOOL BECAUSE YOU CLEARLY NEVER GRADUATED MIDDLE SCHOOL" lol.

    /caution sarcasm in use/

    I would make a little spoiler tag but I'm too lazy to figure out how.

    At first I thought the hole thing was rather lame. Just changing my skin to something else for the day lacked imagination for a prank on April 1. And yep, it took me a second to go, why? Then....O cause It's April 1st....Ya ok I get it now.

    I didn't realize that the sound was changed too. I feel so shorted. I either had my music to high, or my resource pack shielded me from it. Cause I did not notice.

    All and all I thought it was cute, but not legendary.

    Then I read, the now 18 pages, of how this is the most horrible thing ever.

    Now it's funny.

    Next time they should turn us all into "Bob the Builder" and make the creepers make jackhammer noises when they blow up.

    Mojang is the same company that brought us the CREEPER. The thing that sneaks up on you and blows up your stuff. And the ENDERMAN. The brain dead greefer that steals your lawn. And let us not forget the pumpkin headed zombies on Halloween, upside down people.

    Crikkie they have been trolling us sense Beta.

    O well. Hay I like the way EA and the Cat are taking the game.

    See that...I mentioned cats, should get me banned I think.

    Well "this post" certainly wasn't brought to us by grammar...

    Remember kids, "Let's eat, Grandma!" and "Let's eat Grandma!" is a distinction that should be made. It could save your life someday.

    Wow. So much drama in this topic. Too bad I didn't bring popcorn.

    While I thought it was hilarious, it made some MInecraft gamemodes unplayable for people who don't know how to change resource packs. What I mean by this is that PVP games like Factions or HungerGames quickly lost their steath factor because you can hear ANYONE coming remotely near you, especially if they walk past water.

    It also made the day HELL for server owners, since at least at my server, there were hundreds of people who were getting ed off and thought that we did the April Fools joke, where we had to repeatedly explain "No, this is Mojang, etc".

    You have to keep in mind, for some people when they can't play Minecraft they dont' switch to a different game because sometimes either through lack of funds or lack of other games they want to play, there would be NOTHING to do for these people. While I completely agree that flipping out over a sound pack and skin change is unwarranted, more importantly I still feel that April Fools jokes are only funny if they aren't forced and if they don't interrupt gameplay.

    Quote from Dean Otaku

    i cant really critique people on no originality, since my idea is the kanto region, as in, i seen the kanto region, thought, i should make that, and did.
    the map is still up for downloading, just wont be fixed, tweaked or made shiny with updates.
    This decision spawned from seeing some other guy's work in progress on the minecraft monday show after my finished map has recieved litterally NOTHING.
    and hey, for all i know, this guy may have never heard of me, though its the third map that has come up since mine, so yeah. mine's here, there's is there, make your choice.

    So wait a minute...what if we got a big enough following begging for you to be covered on Minecraft Monday? As they are all about appealing to the masses, if we got a mass large enough I'm sure they'd run it. Don't be demoralized simply because they didn't know about your project, there are nearly a dozen projects just focusing on Kanto. However, unlike those projects, you put in the most work, so I don't think you should just give up now! Let's get this publicized rather than give up when nearly everything is done in it! It's a brilliant mod, it just hasn't had enough publicity. In fact, I just found this awesome mod only yesterday browsing the forums...I'm sure we can mass a following as long as we keep this thread active!

    Can you post the direct MediaFire link for your unofficial turbo model mod? Like you said in your original post, the links are messed up. :S

    Well then 50% are either
    A)Dumbasses
    B)On a Shitty PC EDIT: Shitty computer, forgot some use macs.
    Either way he said cracked didnt work when it works just as well as premium. Finally I'll say that I WAS right cause I never said it worked for everyone, it just works fine on cracked.

    You can only get this much derping and herping from a Minecraft Forum. I don't even feel like correcting people anymore lol...

    I take it you can't make Willy's Jeep anymore? I tried doing it with a V4 and a V6 but neither of them worked.

    This looks like a fun mod, but I might wait for it to become more stable in terms of updates that don't make me start over. :tongue.gif:

    Quote from TheSheratonGuy

    I get black screen all the time and installed all sorts of mods, I followed the instructions and started with a fresh minecraft any ideas?

    Did you also read the thread? Obviously not, because you didn't mention you tried any fixes, you just posted saying, "HELP NOT WORKING HELP HELP" which contributes NOTHING to the thread.

    posted a message on Bethesda, Mojang & "Scrolls"
    Quote from EyhSteve

    Actual lawsuit? Or clever marketing scheme? 3 million copies of Minecraft bought. That's 3 million people to be interested in famous indie game maker "Notch"'s next game. What better way to hear about it than to hear that they're being sued by one of our favourite big game corporations? Really, how many of you had heard about Scrolls before this??

    Hurr because life is just like the movies, and there are conspiracies abound. Herp derp derp.

    And yes, I heard about Scrolls a LOOOONG time ago, it's not my fault that you were ignorant of it, just as you obviously are ignorant of many things, you little 14 year old *****.
