    posted a message on Minecraft is NOT Dying, Getting less popular or Boring

    All I'm seeing is a lot of nonsensical damage control for a company that is more than obviously outpaced and outclassed by its own fanbase. Honestly if I were in charge these guys woulda been out on their butts long ago.



    -constant releases that take forever with compounding bugs that add other bugs that addother bugs, ad nauseam. The usual deflection people use "WELL WHY DONT YOU DO IT THEN" is completely neglgible when the team can obviously barely do it by themselves. Why the opportunity wasn't taken to fully transfer the game to a language more people actually care about so the team can actually be expanded and do something purposeful with the game long ago is beyond me. All I see is a company not wanting to spend money whether it be Microsoft or Mojang pre ownership. Dont give me that "small team=quality" defense either, since that obviously isn't and hasn't been the case in a long time.

    -content updates that consist of nothing but a few blocks and some mob changes. 1.9 changes this thankfully with some end additions and some other neat things but seriously, it's been how long? Again, most of this teams time seems to be either wasted squashing bugs that they continually create, or wasting time with experimental features that wont get put in or get stripped down and simplified on public release. It screams incompetence. Seriously though, this game has so much more potential than the excuse and defense given which is "YOU MAKE YOUR OWN FUN HAHA :D". You can do that with any game to some reasonable extent. I've played this game quite a long time now, since just before beta but lets get real here. Why isn't there meaningful treasure and fixed areas to explore and to find in the underground and overworld that add to the game that you could sell or trade for a currency? Why are forests, extreme hills, tundras and OCEANS (for the most part) still barren? Why are mobs STILL idiotic? Why after so many years are the mechanics of the game still barebones even with 1.9's changes? There's only so much damage control you can make for this and the devs and community can only scream "MODAPI" or "use mods!" so many times before it seems like a damage control for laziness.

    -Because of a slow or nonexistent MEANINGFUL update process, this communities interest HAS died off quite a lot. Servers I see are either empty most of the time, or people dont care to stay long. The community is slowly moving on because they had their creative fun with the game.


    I could go on and on but seriously, I don't see how anyone with reasonability can ignore the glaring faults that isn't paid to damage control for the game.

    posted a message on For those of you complaining about 12 year olds playing minecraft...

    You'll understand when you get older. :) Then you'll remember your post and my comment and facepalm at what you copypasted. All that ESRB means is that it's suitable for everyone, not any intended age group. Just FYI though, this game started as a indie game sourced from 4chan, /v/ in specific. This game was funded and backed and spread to popularity by those players. This was long before Notch fled to Reddit to escape criticism and having to work on his game. My point is 4chan's mostly made up of adults as its a 18+ website, it started with adults long before kids clung to it, just food for thought.

    posted a message on The annoying Players?

    People who choose a prime piece of land, build a wood/cobble/dirt hut, and only play for like 2 days then vanish for many months to a year then come back and whine and complain that it got taken down. Either play the game or screw off.

    posted a message on The Golden Age

    I enjoy survival the most when I play on Beta 1.7, since IMO that's the absolute best version before things started going downhill. However, when I'm doing creative stuff (which is most of the time) the new versions are far superior. Survival is crap now, though.


    The world gen in beta 1.7 has something magical about it, I can't put my finger on it but it inspired me to build quite a lot on it.

    Notch just needs to go back to his passion and make games, he seemed to like the attention it gave him even if he was a bit dramatic at times. This time though don't run crying to leddit after a "certain website" says mean things.

    posted a message on Why most are hating 1.9?

    They don't like that it's making pvp harder. Most of the people who are hating on it are young and grew up with games that were easy and forgiving. Minecraft used to just be spam click a zombie and you win. Now, it actually takes some strategy, and most of those kids don't know how to play like that,


    Preeeetty much this, give them time to get good...they'll get over it. Games cant be super easy forever.


    Also to add to this, it gives more reason to try to earn different enchantments now that it's harder to defend yourself. This reason alone is good reason to support the new combat mechanics.

    I've been waiting a long time for them to uncasualize combat in this game beyond spamming clicks, no deal.

    Support for sure, this is a great idea and would definitely give more life to the world in a properly executed way.

    This is like what SEGA used to use on phantasy star online, gameguard...and it never works properly and only causes issues for players. It's one of the most easily bypassed checks ever too, this would never work on anyone whose not a idiot.

    posted a message on Minecraft Vs. Terraria

    As games their incomparable unless you want to just say they both have digging building and zombies. As far as content, treasure and explorability, items, and actual challenge, terraria wins hands down. For community, smooth gameplay (more casual, lets be real) and modability minecraft is your game. Both have excellent building mechanics so we're not even gonna go there. I personally think Terraria is a far better game, but if you're lookin for something to relax with Minecraft wins that.

    Customized worlds are a option before creating a world in vanilla minecraft.

    posted a message on Simple way to disable Silverfish Blocks / Monster Eggs?

    Try customized worlds, most likely you can control their appearance through that. I personally haven't messed with it enough to know. There's texture packs as well that mark the stone silverfish eggs with a different texture. The best way to know though is to realize that mining them takes a slight bit longer than their normal block counterparts. :P

    posted a message on Anti AFK plugin...

    You mean a plugin that stops you from afking at farms/grinders? I'm not too sure on your wording there...


    If I'm getting what you mean,we used a similar plugin on the server I moderate on if so. It's rude to AFK while others might actually need to sleep, or actually want challenge from the game to have mobs to fight themselves. Just consider that, if they needed to resort to such a plugin there was obviously a problem presented to them from AFK'ers that it had to be used. Trying to circumvent that makes you part of the problem.

    posted a message on 1.8.1 Client Does Not Support Pentium 4 Anymore??
    If you provide a potential budget, most people on this forum could put together parts for a PC that could run minecraft easily for under $500. If you're that bad off to run minecraft I'd suggest getting a Xbox 360 and play on that version. This game has made recent changes that require you to have a decent PC now. I'm afraid there's not much you can do but finally upgrade or get a cheap 360 for like $40-$50 or so and play that version. I know I'm being rather unsympathetic but if every game was held back for bad hardware we'd never see progress.
