    I can see where you're coming from Minimanz, but the way you put it seems a bit selfish.
    Yeah I can see that but at least some people seem to be able to see it correctly and dont get their feathers ruffled too easy. I'm sure it was just because of the list at the end but like I said, I just didnt want to hear the same things I've already heard.

    Personally, I think Notch should secretly work on MP in the background while he has the time, taking his time so MP is bug free. (Who knows, maybe that's what he's doing)
    We can only hope.

    Quote from SteGriff »
    Like other commentators have said, he started it, it was harder than he thought, he got demotivated and stressed and decided to rekindle the joy of devlopment by making fun features.

    By scrapping the old MP code, he has to start from scratch.
    You can read into the sentence and try to come up with ideas of what he MAYBE meant and add words that were never there all you want. But until we actually hear from him you just gotta read what he said. But if that is the case, and he means he hasnt started AGAIN, I must admit that doesnt quell my concerns. Basically for me that translates into this: he tried to do multiplayer, but failed and now hes adding loads more stuff. To use a (rather fitting!) visual metaphor, if youre having trouble pushing a minecart along the tracks and cant quite make it. Go ahead and take a break, but dont go and load it up with a hundred more iron bars and try again!

    So although he hasn't been working on the multiplayer code, he has been moving towards multiplayer.
    Thats debatable. I guess it just depends on how you look at it. Like someone said earlier in the thread he could just be doing every little thing that can distract him to put off doing SMP. I do agree that things like dynamic water and caves were needed before MP and I know all these recent updates are going to make SMP better whenever it comes around BUT THAT IS NOT THE POINT I AM ADDRESSING. What I'm talking about is the actual PROGRESS hes made and if hes made any, if at all. Sure, MAYBE he made some progress and then scrapped it...but does that make things any better? Think about it.

    Maybe Notch will read this and he can clear things up instead of having his fans speculate for him.

    All you guys are posting wrongly

    Your meant to agree with him or not post at all


    Hahahahahahhaa no. You must have misunderstood if thats what you got out of my post. I just didnt want to hear the same old excuses that I've already heard before time and time again. But I guess (Nexii missed that part in the post. :/) If you read that list and it somehow translated into "I dont want people who dont agree with me to post" you should work on that yourself.

    Selfish *******. Learn to wait!

    Oh yeah, selfish ******* me. How dare I ask a question about a possible mistake in speech on the progress of something. Man I am so terrible, whats next on my evil diabolical list of cruel and selfish acts? (Please learn the definition of the term "selfish" before you go throwing it around, thank you!)

    I think when he said he was stressed, he meant that he was stressed out by all the anticipation. Think about it; basically every paid member of MC wants multiplayer extremely badly. It's a lot of pressure, I think.

    Still... come on MP survival! :tongue.gif:
    I thought that too. But to be stressed over anticipation from other people? Notch is a grown man. I dont see why hed get so stressed that he needed a MONTH LONG break to get over the fact that people are waiting for him.

    Being stressed out because people are excited doesnt sound like a legitimate reason to be stressed to me.

    I'm sure some of you may have seen a comment I posted on Notchs blog and maybe some of you are quick to deem me a troll. I'm not. Alright, now with that out of the way lets move on!

    I'm concerned about a recent twitter post from Notch.

    It's not multiplayer. I still haven't started on that.

    http://twitter.com/xnotch/status/16461934661

    Uhh...okay. I know Notch works fast and all and maybe some of you think he can pump out some working form of multiplayer in a day or two and that he just hasnt gotten around to it because...I dunno he doesnt feel like it? But am I the only one that remembers THIS?

    Hi! I’m getting stressed out over the multiplayer release.
    It’s not going as well as I’d hope, and as a result, I’ve lost motivation, causing me to work really slow. This is a bit of a vicious circle, and I think I need to relax for a bit.

    http://notch.tumblr.com/post/575794628/ ... hort-break

    Remember that month long break (Which I think actually had 2 weeks added onto it) he took before he went full time because he was so stressed? I thought it was caused because of him working on multiplayer? But now we learn he hasnt even STARTED on it. And instead is adding a load of new things (Which I do like) that will surely make multiplayer even HARDER to do whenever (maybe IF ever) the time comes for him to work on it. Is he just joking with us or what?

    Before you shoot off and reply to defend him:
    1. I'm not complaining about the progress Notch has been making
    2. I'm not demanding he release mutliplayer as soon as possible just because I payed for it (Although it'd be nice)
    3. I dont care if you're a programmer too and think you share the same feelings as Notch and know how tough it is for him.
    4. I dont care if you think I should be grateful hes even letting us play with Infdev (because he doesnt HAVE to let us play the alpha) so I should keep my mouth shut

    All I'm asking is why Notch would say hes stressed over multiplayer, and then it turns out he hasnt begun work on it. I'm just asking has he or has he not started work on the number one thing you all want? Maybe you guys are wondering the same thing.

    posted a message on Why can't it come out sooner?
    Unless I read him wrong hes working on it now.

    There we go, optimization update is out. There's a lot more things that can be done, but this will have to do for now. Next up: Multiplayer!


    Optimization is fine now and now hes on Multiplayer. Shouldnt take too long.

    It seems that with the last update the poor animals that now inhabit the endless worlds have given up on life. Please, do everything you can to save our pinky porky pals. One way is to entrap them in a glass box until their suicidal tendencies wash over.



    This has been a public service announcement payed for by Porky Petes Counseling Service.

    posted a message on Play style?
    Build a symmetrical fort. I always do this and I dont know why. :sad.gif:

    But I dont really have a style. Mainly I get my own house first, hopefully grab some coal and while its night create a kind of "in house mine". If I didnt find any coal I'll just have the 2 starting torches to work with to hopefully find some.

    Once I find coal and some iron I just keep mining and mining and expanding my house when I realize I have an assload of stone.

    Then eventually I get bored and wish that Notch would work on multiplayer already. >:C

    I was clearing out a room underground and I found a block of coal. Followed it, got plenty of coal and found a cave with some iron. Followed that and eventually got 12 diamond.

    That was awesome and it just happened yesterday.

    I guess these are the kind of stories well be hearing about whenever multiplayer releases.

    posted a message on Farming....(not so) worthless?
    I dont really farm anymore. It's got its drawbacks but when you think about it, it's not completely useless.

    Sure you need the space, the water and everything to get wheat and even then you need to get 3 of them just to get some bread to heal 2.5 hearts. BUT it has one big positive side. It's a lot more reliable than other food sources. Mushrooms can be a real bother to find and sometimes pigs simply dont drop meat after you spend time roaming around hunting them (At least for me) but with a farm, you can have it nice and safe at your house slowly but surely continuously creating food with little effort.

    Plus, it looks cool if you have fun with it. :tongue.gif:

    But I think it'd be cool to have more food items. Like a shiskebab or a porkchop sandwich.
