    It's actually more common now, and can be found at the bottom of pretty much any body of water. I like swamps, since they have shallow water.


    Yeah the notes say that, but I have yet to see any clay in my 1.8 worlds.

    posted a message on Minecraft... on a floppy disk?
    Quote from Xisuma

    like the 4kb minecraft would the game need recoding to fit on the floppy?


    TO play it from the floppy, yes.

    To get the program to simply fit on one, no. You could use 7zip and compress it down to 1.44mb. You might need more than 1 zip though.

    you can see buildings :sleep.gif:


    Uh... No I can't.

    I have a house made of wood with a yellow wool roof; the map shows nothing but green in the area. It doesn't even seem to matter how big the building is, wood doesn't show up on the in-game maps.

    The ravine near by is entirely made of stone, and while in some areas stone shows on the map, the ravine is featureless on the map itself. I would expect to see a gash of stone where the ravine is, but instead I see nothing but grass on the map.

    I assume that it has to do with how the maps are scaled. A 16x16 pool of lava only shows up as a single red pixel on the map.

    posted a message on Will 1.8 break old maps, or can old maps still be played?
    Villages and strongholds and such won't spawn in old maps only because these options are a special switch that needs to be enabled.

    You might be able to flip these switches on and get such features in newly generated chunks using a 3rd party program, but this is just speculation and I would have no idea how to do this because I don't know where the option itself is located in the map files.

    However, if your old map is based on a user inputted seed, it should still generate the same world with the new features.

    another question: who even has a working floppy drive anymore?


    I do. I have both a 2.5'' floppy drive and a 5'' floppy drive (the big, actually floppy floppy disks).

    Another question: Why is the 2.5'' disk still called a floppy when it's not really floppy at all?

    posted a message on Tall Grass
    I thought using shears on tall grass was only supposed to make the grass itself collectable.

    Oh, I guess I read that wrong.

    Yeah, they drop the grass block itself now. You only get seeds from destroying the grass.

    I call sugar cane reeds because that's what it used to be.

    I call clay a myth because it's so hard to find.

    I call glass panes ******** because the way they operate next to doors sucks.

    posted a message on 1.8 makes me dizzy =(
    The new FOV thing seems to just be acting funky.

    Your FOV changes slightly when you sprint. Ok. Used to this in other games...

    But when I am just walking normally, sometimes the FOV will "pop out" so to speak. It will change like I am sprinting, but in a manner that looks like I am zooming in and out as I walk forward.

    It's annoying as hell.

    posted a message on Price?
    I bought it in Alpha and it was only $10. Though back then (maybe still, IDK) it was $10 in Euros, so my price was whatever the conversion rate of Euros to American Dollars was (which changes frequently) and I just happened to get my copy for $10. A week later, I got my brother a copy for $13.24.

    About the .25 cents: It's an automated system which means it rounds it off.

    Are there any mods that allow the way the in-game vanilla map displays the map to show better detail/features?

    I can't even get a clear definition of a ravine on these damn things, and I've always hated that you can't see buildings; even if you built it before the map was crafted.

    posted a message on biggest natural cave youve ever seen?
    I found a particular mountain in a mountain range that was completely hollow after a shell of 3 blocks. It was insanely massive. I died like 3 times just trying to get in because I didn't think it was that big and I kept falling to my death digging in from the top of the mountain.
