    posted a message on More use out of Stone - Crushing
    Pros: Use for cobble surplus.

    Cons: Completely removes any need to search for any ore, so you might as well just delete the naturally-generated stuff from the map and erase that bit of the gameplay. You just made everything but stone obsolete. Way to go!

    Plus, how would crafting some gravel (that's what "ore dust" would be when you get down to it - crushed stone) create all this metal and precious gems?


    Failure of the OP:

    1) Thinking that just because there's a surplus, it needs some great use.

    2) Offering such a poorly thought-out use.

    3) Not thinking of the ridiculousness of crafting gravel into metal and gems and magic dust.

    Diamond tools are already expensive. This all just sounds...So pointless, and so very tedious. Plus, cobble is common as hell. I can get enough for diamond while just searching for caves. Why remove the need for mining ores - especially rare ones - by adding this?

    You mean a crappy idea...Hell, not even an idea. Just drivel. It's good practice to try actually having an idea before you post.

    Yes it functions like water in the grevity-sense, so jourvey's to the bottom of lava would be possible, a good and effective was of hiding your base...and it only is fatal if it inhaled, technically you can safetly eat asbestos


    Because eating poses no risk of inhalation...Nor having a suit of it. Except it does. :Pig:

    Plus, there's not enough time even with it to do anything useful in lava. And the whole toxic cloud and inhalation elements are just unnecessary.


    Plus, your base would have to be in the Nether to be any decent size, so it's hidden anyway.


    All in all, if there were a lava-resistant armor, I'd rather it last a long time and take a suitably difficult task to acquire each time.

    Who would use an asbestos suit anyway? Enjoy your death...

    WHat's wrong with the suggestion, it would allow short travel in lava and things like under-lava bases



    Asbestos. That's what's wrong with it. Even in a fantasy game, a suit made of cancer-inducing (among other severe problems) material is ridiculous. :Pig:

    Plus an under-lava base is insane anyway...Is there even an "under" to the lava? I always burn to death on the surface.

    They are avoiding something that makes their life easier.
    A shelter is also something that makes their life easier.
    So is hitting the enemy.
    Same thing.


    Ok...so:

    Pillaring = Makes life easier
    Shelter = Makes life easier
    Fighting = Makes life easier

    ...then why are you arguing for the removal of one thing that makes life easier, just to force players to do another thing that makes life easier?

    ???


    I think he's only arguing against the argument "Just don't do it." He considers it an illegitimate argument because a game should be designed and streamlined so that when there is danger, the player can use everything at his disposal to avoid it and still have a reasonable challenge. So it seems to me.

    But not all things are equal, and pillaring doesn't need to be defended against "just don't do it." If tree leaves were diamonds, maybe you could argue that it should be changed, but you're here defending pillaring, and you cannot ignore that context. Reasonable gameplay helps inform what needs changing and what doesn't, and this . . . you can just not do it, just like bug exploits.

    Agreed. :Diamond:

    No-one will be as impressed at their buildings, a tower that they are proud of and might have taken forever will have took someone else 10 minutes.

    It is also not as easy as it sounds to avoid.

    How is it selfish if it is an idea for the game you think would make it a lot better for other people as well as you?

    From your logic I could suggest something stupid like a super amazing diamond machine that is made with coal and squirts out diamonds while turning back time, and if someone doesn't like it just use your "Don't use it" argument?

    Oh and you made me lose the game.

    Got to go for a little while, I will be back soon though.


    Their being impressed or not is irrelevant. This game isn't about being impressive, even if some choose to use the game for that purpose.

    It is easy to avoid: Just don't do it. How is that hard? It isn't.

    It's selfish because he was crying for the removal of a gameplay element most players find very useful, on the sole basis that he personally believes its POTENTIAL use as mob avoidance was cheap. He went on to ignore all objections, all explanations of its many uses to other players, and how removing it would drastically affect all other players. He wasn't saying a thing for other players - in fact, he was ignoring the objections of other players. He was making a suggestion for himself and nobody else.


    You have yet to invalidate the solution. Pictures and bragging of other players will not affect your own game. Whether or not it affects you yourself, well, that's an issue of the PLAYER, not the GAME.

    And? If they dislike it, they should and can avoid it without any problem.

    Vegetarianism would make my life easier by cutting down on all the fatty meats I ingest. I avoid it because I don't like it.

    Way to go, you can quote the same tower of text 5000 times!


    A) Single-player game. Nobody else there.

    :cool.gif: A belief that pillaring cheapens the gameplay.

    C) Don't do it, then the gameplay won't suffer.


    Where's the lack of validity? - Simple question. Answer it and you could validate whatever inane point you're trying to make. I notice the OP avoided simple questions about his ideas too.


    It really seems like you are avoiding my points now, I can not argue with someone if they are not reading my side.

    A) No-one else is directly watching you, through bragging, forums, images, friends it still effects other people.

    :cool.gif: Correct, and wanting it removed from legit gameplay.

    C) The gameplay suffering is a good argument, don't do it is not because of reasons above.

    After this post I will go no further and assume I have won if you do not answer to my points.



    A) Bragging? Forums? Pictures? Who gives a ****? Avoid them if they honestly have such a deep effect on you. It doesn't effect THE GAME.

    :cool.gif: Wanting it removed is selfish and moronic when you can just as easily avoid it otherwise.

    C) "Don't do it" is a perfect argument for single-player games. The only point you have made is that some people might be affected by pictures and bragging and that would somehow magically affect their game despite being outside the game - Those people are pathetic.

    And by avoiding pillaring what is one doing?
    Purposefully putting themselves in danger in an attempt to have fun, which I think should be the games job.


    They're avoiding their dislike of pillaring without ****ing up everyone else's game.

    They're not putting themselves in danger unless they stand there in the open night like a jackass. There are ways to avoid danger and still avoid pillaring. Did you know that? It's not a hard thing to figure out.

    It is EXACTLY that simple. Other people still using it would have NO EFFECT on you. You wouldn't even KNOW they were using it.

    I still fail to see how "Don't do it" is a valid argument though.



    ...Have you paid any attention, at all, to anything, in your life?

    A) Single-player game. Nobody else there.

    :cool.gif: A belief that pillaring cheapens the gameplay.

    C) Don't do it, then the gameplay won't suffer.


    Where's the lack of validity?


    I am not going to properly reply to this until you properly read my posts answering all those points.


    The only point you have is some irrelevant crap about the game's "job" to provide challenge. You have offered nothing whatsoever that invalidates the offered solution to the OP's ridiculous issues. If you can't simply explain yourself, then your point - whatever on Earth it was - has been defeated.

    I think it should be the game's job to put the player in danger


    You keep saying that. And it keeps having nothing to do with anything. It is the game's job to provide danger: And that has no relevance upon the fact that if one dislikes pillaring in a single-player game, they can simply avoid it. The game's "job" does not invalidate that fact.
