    it's been years since we talked!!! not that we were huge friends or anything but i like seeing old forum people i knew pop up, how have you been?

    btw more related to the question you asked, a lot of people i'm still close to and met from here have ended up in friend groups wholly disconnected from MCF by now. there's still stragglers like me who will never leave ever but that's the state of things :/


    I remember you. I used to go by Thunderhoof/Starlight Glimmer. I was quite the trouble maker back in the day. Hope you've been well.

    Space exploration wouldn't be out of place in a game like this but each of the individual planets or moons that could be visited would need something interesting to encourage people to visit them.


    We don't even need spacecrafts to be added to the game to make this practical, just add portals and players could build stargates to each individual planet or moon worth visiting.


    Imagine if the moon Europa and the planet Jupiter got added to the game, while Jupiter shouldn't be habitable in the game, and nor should Europa without any gear that protected players from the conditions there, Europa could have an interesting landscape on it, having the distant stars still be visible even during the day time in the sky, and the majority of the surface being covered with ice with liquid water underneath.


    Mars could be made already terraformed, giving it Earth-like features and biomes, and likewise it could have the same hostile mobs spawning there as on Earth, but it could also have abandoned Martian buildings, only some containing villagers, adding a bit of mystery to it, implying that alien technology had already terraformed the planet long before the time period players were there.


    Europa would be interesting. I much prefer portals and stargates to spaceships. Europa could be covered by a vast frozen ocean with unique ice-based biomes. Ice aliens and ice based mobs. Jupiter covering half of the sky, and of course it would be tidally locked so day-night cycles last a lot longer.

    Mars would be interesting as Terraformed, I imagine it would have vast areas similar to the Mesa Biome, but more liveable. Abandoned Martian buildings and portals leading to other planets and moons. I would suggest that Phobos and Deimos be able to be visited as well, although the world can physically be smaller since those moons are so tiny.

    I'm still around, though, I don't know if I will continue to post here - or if my coming about here is yet another temporary visit.

    I hope that in the future Roleplaying can come back. I wasn't the best roleplayer back in the day, but I still have fond memories here. Maybe one day that can happen again here.

    The End is basically that?



    The End isn't really the Moon. I think the End needs some major development, the End doesn't strike me as interesting as it could be.


    Quote from Agtrigormortis»

    Not really, and I would agree with being able to access the moon, while not technically counted as another dimension, it could be treated as one by game design for the purposes of simplicity.


    It has been done in the Galacticraft mod, why shouldn't it be done as a legitimate feature? there are other options to add in dimensions but personally I consider the idea of allowing players to reach the moon just by climbing blocks a horrible idea, as it would only be accessible at night time and it would likely mean adding in a build height of several hundreds of thousands of blocks, making the whole process tedious.


    It would be better to allow the moon to be accessed via some portal,

    but then we are going to need some new enchantments to be added to make at least a little bit of sense out of

    how players are able to survive in such a hostile environment.


    Anti Radical could be added as a new enchantment to protect against radiation,

    And adding another enchantment called Moon Walker could grant immunity to the vacuum of space and thus suffocation,

    but be made incompatible with Respiration enchantments. Anti Radical could be obtained from Villager Trades or dungeons in Overworld of course, while the Moon Walker enchantment could be exclusive to UFO crash sites on the moon.



    should there be hostile mobs on the moon? perhaps,

    but first we need to make the environment liveable before considering this.


    The Galacticraft Mod as far as I know seems to be no longer updated? I feel like Minecraft should incorporate something like it into the actual game itself. Perhaps with it's own planets and Moons. I would suggest for the Moon in Minecraft to have multiple biomes and to actually be habitable in certain areas. The Moon should have an atmosphere, I think that would be interesting.

    posted a message on Suggestion: More materials for tools
    Quote from Agtrigormortis»

    That's a good idea, they get the option to make themselves more powerful than what the current official game offers, but in so doing, they bring on bigger threats onto themselves, meaning the game doesn't automatically become easier when they obtain the best gear, there are caveats or strings attached.


    and they can't blame Mojang for taking advantage of a feature that was entirely optional, with this players who are focused on building and exploring and less about combat, they may not want to take on this challenge so they would be advised not to use this higher tier armour, but everyone else, professional players or players who don't care about doing amazing builds all that much, but are more adventurous and want to fight tougher enemies and complete every challenge in the game, they can upgrade to this elite tier armour, but then they cause tougher enemies to spawn.


    I would also suggest for Leather Armor to pretty much be invalidated as an Armor concept. Leather Armor is practically useless due to how easy it is to gather Iron. Whatever happened to Chain armor, anyways?

    Quote from ChronoFury»

    (Hey, I remember you used to go by Thunderhoof and Starlight Glimmer on here. Those were fun times. Anyway, let me actually respond to your post now lol)


    What do you remember of those times? I am genuinely curious about that. It's been years since I've been on here. While I have lurked somewhat here and there over the years, I have gained access to my other "Starlight Glimmer" account sometime ago and posted occasionally in the past few years, I was largely away from the forum - yet when I regained access for real this time, under this account, I decided to contact the staff and have this account revived. I originally had the material on this account deleted and I do not remember any of it.

    My original join date, I do remember, was March 31st 2015. I was in 6th grade at the time. Now, at the time of writing this, I'm of college age. I mainly remember starting arguments and drama with people. I was just a kid at the time. Now? I'm an adult, and looking back on those events, it's another world to me. Much of it I don't remember since it's just been so long.

    I don't talk to anyone from the Minecraft forums anymore on a frequent basis. Whatever roleplay groups I was in from those times have disbanded, and have been gone for years now. I haven't really seen anyone else around that I recognize, though. Seems like everyone left.



    Yeah, Discord played a huge part. It was why back then we replaced the old IRC chat and launched an official Minecraft Forum discord that everyone can join via the 'chat' button on the website. While there were a lot who joined (22,000 and counting to be exact), the activity on the discord server never really materialised. :(


    And yes, there used to be a PPNS section on the forum. I can answer your question as I was around during the time when it was removed. To summarise, PPNS resulted in a lot of heated arguments, drama, conflict and created a cesspool of negativity amongst what was otherwise a friendly community at the time. It was also deemed as an additional aspect to moderate and it can be challenging to moderate political discussion whilst being as fair and objective to everyone as possible.


    Totally get the MCF admins' decision on removing PPNS though. Planet Minecraft actually allows for political discussion, so you get plenty of LGBTQ+ related posts, politics and discussion on other hot-button issues in the news. The result of this is that community can be quite toxic at times because of the difference in opinion between those who are more liberal vs those who are more conservative and it is a hassle to moderate as well.



    I don't really use forums anymore that much, besides this forum and one other forum. Discord is my main go to. Discord has many issues that I do not like. It's hard to find good communities as most servers seem to be rather toxic. I want to find some sort of group with an older crowd that has a fair level of maturity, but that's fairly hard to come by over Discord.

    On another forum I use, there is a political section of the forum but it is strictly moderated. Swearing, joking, emojis, and passive-aggressiveness will get you booted from it very quickly. It's a good way to filter out people.

    I have been on Planet Minecraft somewhat, and I can already tell right off the bat that it's not a place I would find value in. Seems too much of a mess.
