    Thank you so much for this. No longer is my floating island in the middle of the desert covered in snow.

    (Well, okay, currently it's still covered in snow, but at least now it won't snow there anymore...)

    BAM. Just look at that giant island. That is sexy is what that is.

    (This is from the OP's seed.)

    I am in love with this map. Thank you so much for the seed. (I've been exploring - if you go far enough, you DO reach the edge of the ocean, or at least, larger islands. This actually creates this awesome coastal terrain, I may post some of my explorations in a bit).

    posted a message on Should the hunger bar have an on/off option?
    I think people are missing the point. Some more than others, but I will address those are actually raising valid points, as those who are not would likely just ignore this post anyways.

    Minecraft is a sandbox game. Even that isn't the ultimate goal of it, which changes like this certainly hint towards, the fact that Notch also saw fit to include a creative mode shows that he at the very least partially understands that this game's greatest strength is in the player being able to play it how they want to. The forcing of a feature such as this onto the player is, personally, rather harsh, and not really that wise from a gameplay perspective.

    This person is not asking for the removal of this feature, he is merely asking for the ability to toggle it. If you cannot see the logic in that idea, you have no hope. Continuing on.

    Other (legitimate) points raised:

    It's still beta, it may be changed.
    - Exactly! However, if it is not pointed out now that something needs changing, will it ever get changed? Maybe, but speaking out is a much more straightforward way to get an idea noticed.

    Give yourself time to adapt/get used to it.
    - Well, yes, it is certainly possible to adapt to it. But that counteracts the whole point of letting people play how they want to.

    Not having hunger would be cheating!
    - No. Some people considered Too Many Items cheating, but in 1.8, Notch turned it into a fully game supported mode (creative mode). And on top of that, how would having the game be slightly easier be cheating, when we already have toggles that turn mobs off altogether?

    It makes the game easier, stop complaining.
    - This is completely subjective, and as I haven't actually experimented horribly much with the hunger bar, can't really speak too much on... But either way, I don't see it should be much of an issue in the long run. It still raises other issues.

    Just play on peaceful, you don't lose hunger.
    - Right, and now there's no mobs either. Although there's no direct definition of 'cheating' for a sandbox game such as this, if a player self-imposes rules to play by, that could be considered cheating by their own standards. If they then have to break their own rules in order to fix something they never wanted anything to do with? That is just straight bad gameplay.

    On top of all this, it does make a number of more challenging gameplay elements much much harder. Although people usually play these modes for a bit more of a challenge, the hunger bar drastically compounds the issue.

    Examples:
    Nether Survival (Bring some saplings and dirt into the Nether, go. Now, you also have to actively hunt pigmen in order to survive. Although some people may like that primal aspect, some people may just want to do it to see how long they can stay alive, and food is just an unnecessary complication.)

    Underground Survival (Bring saplings down to the lowest level and survive down there. Now, you have to survive off A - zombie flesh, which I last heard poisons you, so no go there, or B - taking the time to get grass down to the bottom level so you can spawn some animals. Again, still doable, but much more complicated now.)



    Long story short... The inclusion of a toggle for the hunger bar has pretty much only positive consequences, and the few possible negative ones mostly deal with annoying the odd self-obsessed hardcore few.

    posted a message on Missing Biomes?
    I'm fine with most of the other bugs with the generator, but the lack of snow makes me sad... I miss my winter fortress... =(

    Hope he fixes it for the actual release, seems like a fairly obvious thing to fix.

    posted a message on YAY i spawned in a endless swamp
    Yeah, it seems like swamps are a tad common at the moment... And on top of that, there are also currently no biomes where it snows. Swamps are cool, but their gratuitous size and there being no snow makes me sad...

    Interesting. Is it known if little ones grow into larger ones if left to their own devices? Or is this and finding them naturally the only ways to get them?

    (This is assuming you can find them naturally, I haven't found any yet myself...)

    Spacebar twice.

    Space to increase height, shift (sneak) to decrease height.

    Double space turns it off again.

    Quote from goanimals123

    check Jens twitter he said it yesterday.


    No. I just checked, Jens said the exact opposite. Copy pasted directly:

    "You need to generate new areas. As it looks now, beta 1.9 will also require new generation"

    Not a new world, new areas. AKA... New chunks. Area =/= world.

    no option for 'both' :sad.gif:


    Actually, I'm going to agree with this.

    Although for the time being I put creative, cause... Well, it's what I'm probably gonna use most often. But for multiplayer and exploring once in a while...

    posted a message on Will Hunger be Optional?
    Quote from Jboi

    Notch should make it so that when you start up a map you create all the presets for it as in difficulty, hunger, leveling, etc. then after you choose all of that, it can't be changed mid-game.


    I came into this thread to say pretty much exactly this, however as you pretty much already said everything there is to say, there you go.

    (I actually expect this to be the way it goes, as it has been stated NPC villages will be optional, and I don't really see us being able to turn them on and off after a map has been created.)
