    posted a message on What are some stupid ban/kick/jail reasons you have seen or experienced?
    I once joined a server, owned by my friend, moderated by some trusted people, his brother, and his brother's friends. Yeah, it didn't end too well.
    One of the brother's friends (he said he was 8) asked me to help them terraform a big area into a plateau. I agreed, and used creative mode (courtesy of my friend) to get over there quickly. He demanded why I was "hacking" and I explained. He said it was okay, that he believed me. I helped for a bit, destroying all the grass and dirt first. He yelled at me for destroying the dirt. I said something like "You kinda told me to". I was banned for "Disrespect, and fly hacks".

    The same points have come up, the same points have been argued, and it's still going. Yes, Minecraft is a finished game. However, it is being rendered, you could say, "more complete". How about we take Call of Duty as an example. You pay $60 for your new Ghosts, you rip open that plastic cover, you play the game. Along the way, you encounter a bug. Do you 1) Scream, shout, and complain that the game is "unfinished" or 2) Find a way to ignore it and move on. Of course, if the bug is gamebreaking, the developer is going to release a patch for the game(probably for another $20) and everyone is happy again. This is exactly what Mojang is doing, except it's free! They're doing us a SERVICE and people are not appreciating their efforts! What if Mojang stopped fixing bugs altogether, because of it? Maybe the staff there feel like whatever they do, nobody is happy. And people who complain that an EXPERIMENTAL snapshot which is basically a beta update is bugged reinforce this thought!

    Dang, nice laptop. Just run fancy/smooth lighting, and increase the render distance until you find one you like.

    For starters, since you're experienced (I assume) you should know that you can make cobble shacks to protect yourself from ghasts. Also, I've played the Xbox version and there you can hit the fireballs back at the ghasts. But I'm a newbie to PC version, so it might not apply on the PC version.

    All of what you said was correct for the PC version.

    Hopefully, you have the coordinates to your house written down somewhere. If you do, great. Take your current position in the Overworld, subtract the X and Z coordinates from the ones of your house(or vice versa, depending on your situation) and divide by 8. That is how many blocks you have to travel to get back home. As for the actual journey, find yourself an Enderman, get some pearls. You could block glitch into the top of the Nether, where there are literally no obstacles between you and your destination. It's just an endless plateau of bedrock. No mobs will spawn, either.
    Hope this helped!

    Thing is, we already have leads. What's wrong with tying a mob with a lead and getting in a boat yourself? Seems like a much better alternative than coding in something like this.

    I guess Windows 95 was "done" too and never needed an A, B, or C.
    Windows 98 was "done" and never needed SE.
    Windows 2000 was "done" and never needed updates or service packs.

    The thing is, "done" to Mojang means "out of beta". They could've stopped updating it right then and there. At that point, it was a complete, functioning game. "Done" to Microsoft, when they released Windows, means "serviceable copy". It worked, it booted up, but it had errors. As a Java coder myself, I can say that getting a program as intricate as an OS or Minecraft right on the first go would be difficult. But of course, both Mojang and Microsoft buggered that up, and thus released updates and service packs. How about we take Windows XP as an example. When it was released to the public, it was considered done. "Done" does not mean "fixed every bug, error, and just about everything else at release". It means "There's probably something we screwed up, but we'll be happy to fix it for you". So service packs were introduced. Windows XP was considered "complete" when the last service pack came out. That was the time when Microsoft decided that they did not want to fix bugs or add new content anymore, and dubbed the OS "complete". It's the same for Mojang. When Minecraft 1.0 was released, it was "done". What you are asking for is "complete". It seems that you think that "done" means "fixed everything at launch, we'll never need to update it again". But of course, Mojang fixed the bugs. They added new content. And this is why I stand by them, why I support nearly every thing they change to Minecraft. Why? It's something you couldn't possibly understand, the fact that Mojang did not have to fix the things that they screwed up. The game was done at 1.0. If you would like "completion", go look at the source code. Fix it yourself, add the things you would like to see yourself, rather than complaining that Mojang isn't catering to your every whim.
    Also, it seems this thread has come full circle. It'll keep going forever. A lock would be nice.

    Well, there was one time I was pushed off a cliff by a pig. In my clickfest while falling, I managed to hit the pig and the wolf I had with me took revenge as I died. Ever since then, I bring a wolf with me to mountain biomes.

    Thing is, do we really need these things in the base game? I'm all for new content, but there are many mods that meet your description of different play styles. Let's take Balkan's Weapons Mod as an example. Slow fire rate, expensive, firearm = Musket. Defensive style weapon = cannon. I have found nothing related to your whip, though.

    I much prefer the old recipe, for many of the same reasons as everyone else. Personally, I don't really want to spend redstone on pressure plates when I could be working on that automatic farm I want.

    posted a message on MiniGame Ideas?
    Well, I have a few ideas that I have seen in other minigame servers, like so:
    1. Hunger Games style PvP
    2. Kit PvP, with creative kits/classes
    3. A demake of a popular game
    4. Knockback PvP, like Super Smash Bros.
    5. Parkour with PvP elements
    6. Mob arena, in which compete for kills
    7. Unorthodox PvP, such as Bow Spleef

    posted a message on is Donating to servers with Paypal safe?
    As a donator myself to several different servers, both of which use BuyCraft and therefore PayPal, I can say that donating via PayPal is EXTREMELY safe. The money you send is pretty much guaranteed to reach the recipient. However, you may or may not get the benefits you paid for. In the case that you don't, take it up on the server's forums.

    posted a message on 2014 : Your Opinion on PvE Servers With Donator Ranks?
    Well...Being a donator to several servers myself, I can say that the general hate against donators is well-deserved. Be it spamming TripleShot in Hypixel paintball or sweeping the board as an IronGolem in SCB, VIP's can be a constant target for hate. Now, using these two games as an example, the hate is considerably less as two or more teams exist in both minigames. However, in a PvE environment, this is not the case. There is literally nothing from stopping a VIP from charging in, Leroy Jenkins style, and stealing all the kills. So, IMO, donator ranks don't really belong on PvE servers.

    Right, let's settle some things right here and now.
    Minecraft was considered "done" at version 1.0. Did Mojang have to continue to add stuff for years to come? Nope. In fact, from a business standpoint, it probably would've been a better idea to not add any more stuff, because then you have more content than $20 is worth. But they did! Good guy Mojang began work on version 1.1 straight away! Did they ask for anything extra? Of course not! All they wanted was to add things to their already-finished game. Think of it as a school project. You could settle for the minimum requirement, and get a C at best. But if you want an A, you have to go above and beyond what your teacher expects. This is why Mojang is still adding stuff and fixing bugs, because they care about us, the fans! They want that A from the community! They enjoy watching us have fun! This is what people don't understand, that Mojang is doing this for us, not to line their own pockets. Therefore, people shouldn't complain about Mojang being "lazy", as they could've gotten that C back in 2011!
