    posted a message on How the skill system should and shoudn't work
    So I've been seeing a lot of threads of people with ideas for skill systems and first things first: I have never seen anywhere that Notch has confirmed it will be skill points, last time I saw he said that the points would be spent to purchase something. If I am wrong and there is proof please let me know. Now onto the meat of this thread. As I see it there are two scenarios for the system and these are my thoughts on them

    1)You get EXP until you level up at which point you get a point to spend on a 'skill' like mining, woodcutting, fighting etc. This would not be fun. How do you get EXP? Killing monsters. If you were a miner you would need to go out and grind mobs to get EXP so you can go mine <-- not fun. I actually like the idea of leveling skills but something more like MCMMO where you get better at what you spend time in. So basically, it's a bad system because it changes the way you play forcing you to do something you don't want to which is a big no-no in a sandbox game.

    2)You can spend this EXP (like Notch said on twitter) at a specific place like NPCs, a special block or something else to get abilities or perks. Things that are neutral to affecting different gameplay styles for example: 'Good footing' -You don't get knock back when being hit by a monster. Something that a miner or a warrior can make good use of. This system is much better because it doesn't force the player to play differently, just adds more to the game.

    What I think needs to be done though above all is to make the player receive EXP for doing much more things like mining ore or building. This would make systems like 1) better. Anyway just my thoughts on the leveling system, now I want to hear your's. Which one of the above options do you prefer? If neither then what kind of system?

    - Server list only shows servers that you've manually added.



    That's the point? That is all it was ever supposed to do.

    I can't really tutor you but I can point you in the right direction.
    Check out thenewboston on youtube. He has great easy tutorials that start right from the beginning and go on very far. (80 lessons in the first part I think)
    Hope that helps, certainly did for me!

    Well this is for people that don't feel like reading a 60 page thread to see your link that potentially isn't anything :/

    posted a message on No NPCs for 1.8
    Personally I am slightly disappointed that I won't get to pillage and trade in Minecraft 1.8 but it could be for the better, giving Mojang more time to implement it properly. I know that many others and I would be even more disappointed if we got boring mobs that can't do anything with their villages or even interact with the players.

    Alright I'm just going to be blunt because some people will not be forgiving. This is not the place for bukkit help. bukkit.org is where you want to be for this kind of stuff. There haven't been 1000s of posts already because no one posts this sort of stuff in Minecraft Beta Survival discussion. Sorry :/

    posted a message on Does anybody have a server i can use PLEASE
    Sure I've got an extra server lying around somewhere. It costs around $30/month but I guess I could let you have it and I would just continue to pay for you.
    /sarcasm

    Seriously though, servers are expensive and unless you host it on your own machine or film it on someone else's active server I doubt anyone will just give you a server.

    Bukkit is server software. It runs a server. You probably got some weird virus or something from a mod. When you run Minecraft click options before you log in and click Force Update. That will re-download Minecraft and clear any mods.

    posted a message on Notch? Cape?
    Quote from manomow

    Notch is coding the 1.8 update, getting married, and doing a bunch of other things. I dont think he has time to go on to a small server and talk for a while. Also, the real notch has a yellow name.


    That's classical that he has a yellow name. Even if it was yellow then it would be client-side and the client gets render data based on the players username so it would still show up yellow.

    This is actually a damn good idea for a server.

    I would also be interested in a server like this.

    Brohoster was completely dissolved. There was a 72 hour window to retrieve server data.
