Is the seed with the '' '' ?
Why are people dumb enough to ask this?

No. If you re-code the main code of your program when a bug shows up your an idiot.
A) You can usually limit the bug to one object or function
:cool.gif: The bug can usually be fixed at one line or variable.
If you "re-code it", then... you're just too dumb to be a programmer.
Maybe re-code wasn't the right word. Whatever, it's still harder than modding, that's the point I was trying to make.

You're taking this the wrong way. He's come a long way since when I started playing minecraft in November 2009. I'm not doubting he's a good programmer (even though he's using the worst language of all time), it's just the fact that a single mod developer contributes more to the game than he does. And when he messes stuff up, said mod developers always have to fix it. It's just a shame.
He has to re-code the freaking main code to fix the smallest bug. Modders only have to change one tiny thing. Again I'd like to see you code and fix a game. Don't call Notch lazy if you couldn't do better.
Sep 10, 2011Pingonaut posted a message on Hunger: The reason it needs to be possible to Disable itNo skill involved? Yeah because just tanking hits and healing constantly takes a lot of skill. The hunger bar makes it so you AVOID GETTING HIT. Now there's more skill involved. Nice try, though.Posted in: 1.8 Update Discussion

I don't know about your Leo DeCaprio topic within a topic.... thing. But Notch tweeted that mob grinders may be made completely obsolete, as mobs will probably only drop items and/or exp when actually killed by a player. Which means these mob towers that grind hundreds of mobs a minute will be committing creeper genocide for absolutely zero gain.
I suppose one could rig up a kind of new grinder that lines up mobs in a "kill queue", allowing the player to swing with abandon in relative safety, and the resulting drops would funnel to the player, but with a trap like this, there is still risk of getting hit with arrows.
Or make a really dark room where mobs spawn. Then with the pull of a lever glowstone lights the room. Then you murder the crap out of them. To do this, go full sprint swinging a sword yelling "CHAAAAARGE"

To be honest, I can't stand the attitude of most people round here right now. All crying because they didn't get the update at the first possible deadline... there's one person working on it at the moment, as far as I know. One person, two occasionally. This game is Beta development. Not only that, Notch clearly states in the picture in the original post that calling them lazy REALLY annoys them when they've just spent ages trying to pin down bugs. They work and work and work to provide totally free updates.
If they wanted, they could just leave the game now, say it was 'finished' and therefore version 1, and you'd not be able to do ANYTHING about it. I fully support Mojang, and Jeb and Notch have worked themselves into extreme stress if this is anything to believe. I'm sick of all the fanboys who are constantly screaming alternately about how NOTCH IS THEIR GOD, then one day he's lazy, the new update IS BAD, OH NOW HUNGER AND TOWNS AND SCARY ENDERMEN, yet at the same time YOU WANT IT NOW.
Make your mind up. If you're here just to repeatedly slag off the developers, well done, you've made them sad. You've just taken someone's life project and said "Mate, not good enough. We want more free updates. Work harder, lazy sod."
Congrats to you.

Mods can be buggy yes. this is why mods API needs to be set up, it'd be really great for everyone.
Gonna have to disagree there, I like alot of stuff getting done regardless of if its in incriments or what not, but we're only getting half of what was promised for 1.8.
So, that would mean people would be satified and not "spamming"(Which I fail to see any spam, thank you very much), and work would also get done. HOT DAMN. How DARE anyone get satisfaction?
If they were to update everything they want to do in 1.8 it'd be another month or more. They're releasing half because they want to give an update.
As I just said, they're releasing an unfinished update because they probably feel like they need to update monthly at least and they don't want to disappoint people. But they're not going to make it gamebreakingly buggy to do so.
They've got A LOT of stuff they want to add and the list continues to get bigger. And the bigger the list the longer the wait. But the thing about that is the bigger the list the more epic the update is.
Yes, how dare anyone get satisfaction. The day 1.8 comes out people will be satisfied.
The point is people are impatient, expecting Notch owes them fast updates just because they payed a bit of money for an UNFINISHED GAME. You knew you were buying an unfinished game. And you should know that unfinished games aren't always fast to get updates if they've got something big planned for the next update.

Oh boy where to begin
-ITS A BETA
And yet modders do more for the development than him.
-I don't give a crap if Notch used to update more often than he does now. Things change.
If things change for the worse something is going WRONG.
-because he could've kept Minecraft to himself until he was finished and ready for the game to be tested.
That probably would have been better.
Oh boy where to begin
-And yet modders do more for the development than him.
Adding things in a mod and changing the main code are two different things. Plus mods are buggy and unreliable.
-If things change for the worse something is going WRONG
So you're saying that adding a huge update with tons of new things is worse than having multiple small updates? In a big update like this it takes time, obviously.
-That probably would have been better.
No. That would be better in the sense that impatient people like you wouldn't be here spamming him about not updating quick enough. It's not better, however, for the people who are excited for any update released, no matter how long it takes.

If you're going to blame it on Mojang not having enough employees, like other people have said Notch use to do more solo than the whole team does now. And with all the millions they made should be able to hire more people if that really is the problem. I guess they just want to treat the company more like a group of friends than a business.
I'm not blaming them. I'm perfectly content with the amount of updates we're getting. I don't give a crap if Notch used to update more often than he does now. Things change. You're playing a Beta game. You TEST the game. That means Notch can work at his own pace because he could've kept Minecraft to himself until he was finished and ready for the game to be tested.

Jun 3, 2012Seems like Minecraft is getting easier and easier. I can get to level 100 by caving for a little while, even before I have diamond tools or an enchanting table. I don't understand: If you make it easier to get levels you think you'd raise the level cap for enchanting, not lower it.Posted in: News

That was gravel, not coal.
Looks like new biomes? The tree colors are new to me. Course I play with Doku, so maybe I've just never noticed it when in default.
