    Quote from Rd

    The game style you're advocating is a complete regression of Minecraft, and non-sensical. If you're supposed to build with blocks, yet the game is always trying to tear them down, then it removes the point in building anything larger than a house, unless you enjoy spending a good portion of your time repairing more than a few holes in a wall. Of course, you can spam water/torches every where so monsters -cannot- possible spawn anywhere within range of your house, but you might as well should just play on peaceful at that point.

    Just to reiterate the nonsense of your post, you speak of Endermen being a grand undo-er of builders in minecraft, yet 90% of the damage they actually inflict is upon the surrounding environments; the new biome code, the furthering of the attempt to make minecraft more pretty rendered near pointless when Endermen have their toll turning it into a checkerboard with floating trees. Endermen moving blocks wasn't even intended to annoy builders, it's just a stupid consequence. You don't even know what you're talking about.

    It's funny, because for, what appears to be no reason at all, you've stereotyped players who resent the Endermen, to the ilk of some kind of bigoted douche bag who thinks everyone should play the game the way they want. The irony of course, that you've just projected the exact view onto us in blatant hypocrisy.



    Nonsensical regression? You got out your dictionary for this one; I'm proud of you.

    I said the game at its core is based on the re-arrangement of blocks. I never said "building", nor did I say "just by the player". The point that YOU seem to be missing is that the game in Survival is played as a long-term consistent world, and in such a long-term existence things will from time to time happen to all that stuff you spent hours working on and spread over half a continent. Unless, as you say, you're playing peaceful, then the world SHOULD affect what you build, especially if you build lots of things. It helps keep the game dynamic. Survival mode isn't "build things that will stand until the end of time", unless you set that option intentionally. Otherwise, the game is going to explode your front doors and nick sections of your tracks once in a while.

    I also said that the Endermen were block-wreckers, which they are, as annoying and random as creepers. That is their function, to be a foil for the player, who is all about the building. As far as being "grand", that's your own addition. They're far from being Mo's Ogres. Mortal enemies don't have to be uber; IDK where you got that idea from. Even creepers with their wider and potentially fatal damage potential aren't some game-destroying overbeast no matter how much they crank off sections of the playerbase.

    Is the integrity of a random landscape seriously that critical to your game experience? "Look at this beautiful land- aaaaaa crap, Endermen moved those tree blocks. This world is ruined!" If you want nonsensical, maybe you should look at your attitude about 160 non-player-moved blocks in a 16-million-block map section.

    And as far as your hyperbolic windup there (wow, you must have had the dictionary AND the thesaurus out!), this is not stereotyping anyone. If you're seriously upset by the behaviour of the Endermen then you're playing exactly to type, honestly. There's that section of the playerbase who becomes mortified if anything happens to their creations, but still want to play Survival mode. This also is nonsensical. To have the player's special little pile of rocks be impervious to the effects of the world for all time diminishes the point of having a dynamic world to a certain degree. There are game options available for the perma-builder, avail yourself of them. Survival mode with hostile mobs that break and move blocks is not one of these options. Also, very nice usage of passive/aggressive techniques at the very end there, with the oh-so-clever oblique name-calling. If you contorted that line any further you'd have recursively insulted yourself. You want to bring it, then stand up and bring it, son; otherwise sit down take your meds. And fix that hole in your wall. A poisonous spider could get in there.

    Maybe you should actually, you know, TRY. That tends to improve your chances of not sucking at the game. The less jaded forumgoers have provided you with an endless cornucopia of ways to not starve to death, TRY them.

    smart things


    Thank you, great post! This articulates my beliefs about the state of the game challenges. They're varied depending on playstyle and time spent in-world. Some things will be more of a problem at different stages of player development. And really, a endless sandbox game based on block-arranging at its foundation SHOULD have more mobs that affect blocks. Conceptually this is pretty much obligatory; block-wreckers should be the mortal enemies of builders by their nature. If people want to get an I AM SUPERIOR I BEATED THIS GAME vibe, play something that actually has an ending.

    Also, just ignore the grammar nazis, they're just trying to make you feel bad. :Notch:


    Grammar nazi, at your service. Hey, that's what we live for.

    yea, the holocaust was an enormous world tragedy that took the lives of millions of innocent people
    but lets turn it into a joke
    HA HA...


    He said "grammar nazi", not "concentration camp guard at Treblinka". The term's been around a long time; it's got nothing to do with the Holocaust, and really precious little to do with actual Nazis. It's related more to Seinfeld's "soup nazi" than anything else. Small "n" nazi is pretty much a modern adjective. Learn some terminology before you get all sanctimonious up in here.

    FFS, people. It's threads like this that make me want to call down Exterminatus. These things ALWAYS devolve into flamewars, with plenty of mouthpieces on both sides who will never listen to each other because they're too busy flaming. It's not like we don't see this thread EVERY DAMN MONTH. Jeebus. -_____-

    YES HE IS REAL THERE IS AN ACTUAL SPIRIT HAUNTING A VIDEO GAME. GHOSTS HAVE UPDATED THEIR METHODS TO INCLUDE VIRAL TRANSMISSION OVER THE INTERNETS.

    It's times like that when you wish you'd set up your deep-mine basecamp, or at least just gone back up. At least it was a creeper; I once lost hours of mining loot to a blackscreen timewarp. I was digging near the exit of a cave on my way out, for coal of all things, after a highly lucrative run. Got a blackscreen, which on restart sent me back in time just far enough to be sealed in solid rock. :|

    This makes me sad. Apparently the current standards have fallen far below even a crude Bel-Airing. I miss real trolls, who put effort into their work; it's like any dude off the street these days can be one with no skill or training. My sense of craftsmanship is offended. ;________;

    THIS IS NOT TROLLING.

    Someone being jerky to you is not the same thing as trolling. Lurn2internetsterminology.


    Yes, that is trolling. It clearly adds nothing to the conversation, is inflammatory, and the only motivation can be to get a rise out of the OP and/or derail the topic. Pretty much classic, straightforward trolling.


    It was a simple insult of OP's intelligence over their inability to operate mods. Maybe I just have higher standards for what I consider trolling. A lame, obvious cheap shot doesn't make the cut in my book.

    Blearg. I'm against any suggestion to reduce the effectiveness of the vanilla mobs; they're super-easy to deal with as it is. I usually question peoples' gaming abilities when I see threads mentioning these kinds of "make it not so tough on me" changes.

    I already have a mustache, I don't need another one. I have to join the "neat but totally pointless waste of coding" camp on this idea. This wouldn't even be worth the effort to make a mod, despite the immense coolness of mustaches. It's basically a part of a skin, that you won't see ingame yourself ever. And as far as editing the skins themselves, even a dog could use the tools available right now. It's about as tough as using crayons.

    The concept is kind of meh, even if you didn't get it from CoD. As a straight suggestion it should really be in the suggestions forum, but ideawise, none of the AI is smart enough to really warrant this kind of gear to deal with it. It's certainly not going to have any use in multiplayer unless it could turn you into an actual tree to other players.

    I think I'm tired of seeing a stream of attempted imports from online FPS games into Minecraft. Honestly I find most of these wargame-kit suggestions to be silly.
