    When the sapling wants to grow, it first decides if it's going to be a tall-type or a short-type. Then it checks if it has room for that type, and either grows or fails until the next time it checks.

    Some biomes have a strong preference for one kind or another, so if there's only room for a tall tree (ie, blocks near the ground that limit it) or a short one (ie, some blocks overhead), it may take a bunch of tries before you luck out and get the tree to grow. I've used almost 20 on a sapling once, but it did grow eventually.

    This is the oak/"normal" type tree only. Birches and pines have different rules.

    Some may have been trolling, but it *is* possible to make a safe fireplace, and personally, I wouldn't feel at home without one. Check out one of the science of fire threads to see how to be 100% sure it's safe.

    Thanks!

    It's a project that gets bigger and bigger -- like most anything worthwhile, really.

    I made another, short video -- this one's more--or-less exactly what the final gameplay of the first 3 minutes will be like.


    The texture pack is my own, still in development. I think the grass should be dead, for one...

    posted a message on Crimson Asylum


    I am developing a playable adventure map for Minecraft, inspired by Silent Hill and other horror games.

    Of course, I cannot really control the mobs, alas, but I have a strong start on a map that actually gives *me* the willies in the night.

    Also in this video I am showing off my horror texture pack (work in progress) and my personal, brighter texture pack (also in progress).

    The game is in early stages, and might be released as chapters, I'm not sure. The title comes from a game a friend and I started but never finished. The Walter Freeman Asylum is not actually crimson.

    Music:
    "Journey of the Sorcerer" by the Eagles, probably best known for its use as the theme song for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, both the BBC radio program and the movie.

    "The Book House Boys" and "Night Life in Twin Peaks" by Angelo Badalamenti, from Twin Peaks, obviously.

    "Promise" and "Laura's Theme" (and their reprises) by Akira Yamaoka, from the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack.

    Youtube has flagged this for copyright, but says "no further action is necessary" -- hopefully, this means there will be iTunes links on the side, which, actually, I would prefer.

    Video is a bit stuttery, I apologize for that. I'll make some new teasers when I get more done. I hope you'll all get to play this soon.

    As always, feedback is more than welcome. It is craved.

    EDIT TO ADD:
    You know, I only *just* learned about Adventurecraft. I have been imagining some pretty clever things (if I do say so myself) to work around the limitations of MC -- But ooh, I'm tempted... Anyone have experience with it?

    Burned my house down again!

    I feel kinda stupid. I'd had the fireplace put out for a while, and I thought I'd redo the fireplace to be safer. I dug it down one deeper, so the fire was below floor level, more than two away from everything. I put a hatch over it. I watched it. I watched it some more. I went upstairs, and downstairs and then watched it some more.

    Looked good.

    I left to work on another building, and when I looked out the window, my house was on fire!!!

    I put the fire out eventually, and rebuilt it.

    Instead of fire, I put a cube of orange wool.

    None of my other fireplaces have given me any problems.

    My very first installed mod, and it is awesome.

    I spent months doing some pretty big building, and dyong often from falling off the roof!

    Now I can aim even higher.

    We should all shut up and wait for more info!


    More-or-less, yeah.

    Speculation is fun, but pretending (even to yourself) that you know what is or isn't going to happen is just dumb.

    I doubt Notch even has the level of surety these people claim.

    posted a message on Finally, a Use for Gravel!
    Quote from Madman340

    Gravel should be used to make opaque glass, just like sand is turned into normal glass.

    (Opaque: not 100% transparent)

    Opaque: not transparent at all.
    Translucent: not 100% opaque, not 100% transparent.

    Right, I would travel 80 distance, but not necessarily to block #80.
