    I like the right, it looks cleaner. Though I don't think I like the wool roof.

    Thank you! And as for zombie pigmen:
    If there are pigmen villages, then they are the bad pigmen that went to hell... erm, the Nether!
    Otherwise, they are part of the swarm of creatures that attacked the humans so long ago!
    Edit: Strongholds could even be underground fortresses built to defend from the Nether attack.

    posted a message on What Happened to Minecraftia?
    So, here's the main question:
    What do you personally believe happened to Minecraftia that resulted in the world we see today? What post-apocalyptic event do you think occurred?

    Some things to keep in mind regarding 1.8:
    -Endermen; where do they come from?
    -Strongholds and Abandoned Mineshafts indicate that a society did once live there
    -NPC villages are hard to judge right now. If they're pigmen, then humans have died off, becoming zombies and skellies. If they're humans, then mankind's struggle for survival continues. But right now, as ghost towns, they are still relics of a long-dead society

    I think that it was once an Earth-like planet, just less advanced, more fantasy based. They were miners, builders, etc. They built strongholds and mineshafts. But I think they messed around with something they shouldn't have. I think they probably opened a portal to the Nether inadvertently. This unleashed plagues upon the humans: they were killed off by the demons within, like the ghasts. Pigs were twisted by the infection into creepers, and the spiders became mutated minions of the Nether. The humans killed were brought back as servants to the Nether, as zombies, which eventually decayed into skeletons. The few brave souls who tried to venture into the Nether were transformed by the darkness within, into the Endermen. They are shells of humans, who cannot bear to be seen as the monsters they became, and are particularly vicious towards you (since you are a human, and they envy your pure form).

    After every human was killed, the gate closed, leaving small boxes around the world, small portals through which the demons can re-enter Minecraftia. After many centuries, the old world was buried over, and so Steve's journey began.

    As far as villages go:
    -Empty: They used to be human villages until they all died.
    -Pigmen/ Anything Non-Human: They became the dominant species following the death of man.
    -Humans: They weren't killed off by the Nether infection, but only suffered major casualties before managing to close the portal.

    Let's hear your theories!

    Edit: By the way, feel free to poke holes in my theory. I'd like to make it as logical as possible in context of the game, and am open to criticism!

    I think strongholds should generate after mineshafts, that way you don't have the buggers slicing the poor stronghold to ribbons like the one I saw.

    I've found mostly sheep, with a few chickens and pigs. I walked for probably 5 minutes before finding a damn cow.

    It will allow for mods, not sure about 1.8, but it's worth a shot!

    Same issue here; installed it on my parent's windows computer, but my Mac refuses to run it. Same thing when I try to install a mod: I can do it flawlessly on a windows, but no matter how perfectly I follow the instructions, my Mac won't take it.

    I'm on 10.5.8. How about you?

    Chill man, 1.8 isn't out yet you know, so its bugged. Also, theyre making millions of dollars. And guess what. You're not. So you shouldn't be talking. There will be NPC's in 1.8 FYI.

    NPC's are confirmed for 1.9. Sorry.

    posted a message on ender pearls???
    Quote from Eltanan

    according to the wiki, if you have a pearl, the distance at which endermen become hostile (when you look at them) is halved.

    Don't we know how accurate that is :wink.gif:

    posted a message on ender pearls???
    inb4 "right click enderman, they teleport away"
    They don't, this rumor's been buzzing all day. People say that if you right click a charging enderman with an ender pearl, they will teleport away. In fact, you don't need to have a pearl, nor do you even need to click. If you so much as look at a charging enderman, he will teleport away and attack from another angle. Right now they are useless. Who knows about the future?
    Edit: Ninja'd, now it's in after. Nonetheless, the pearls DON'T DO THAT.

    But, ya know, it might just be for testing, they may reduce their spawning in the official 1.8.
