    Quote from B_Unit »
    The wide variety of answers to how tall a minecraft character is is testament to how much the standard system sucks.


    I don't get how answers can vary, considering there is one and only one conversion factor between feet and meters.
    But yes, imperial measurements suck. They actually came from Britain...

    2 blocks = 2 meters = 2.1872266 yards = 6.56167979 feet

    But in general, people here in the US use a yard as the same length as a meter (when accuracy doesn't matter). It's just easier for conversions than 3.2808399 feet = 1 meter.

    It looks like that in those chunks, the terrain gen put stone instead of air and air instead of stone.

    You may have to hit the "fn", or function, key. I have to do that on mine.

    you had far on, and looked in that direction for a bit, it started creating the chunks, but then you looked away or changed your fog.


    Maybe, except it looks like it goes out 12+ chunks, and last I checked it was only a 9x9 grid of chunks centered on you.

    posted a message on "Stray" Chunks upon map generation
    I wanted to find a spot in a 1.2 world to rebuild my stuff from my 1.1 world, so I used MCedit to view the map, and there were a bunch of disconnected chunks in the new map. It's shown in the picture. What's going on here?

    posted a message on New Update Torch Glitch
    I think it's a display glitch, especially because when the adjacent block breaks the torch does too.

    It's done manually, like in GIMP or Paint.net.

    posted a message on How did YOU get into playing minecraft?
    I probably first heard about it on stumbleupon months ago, and shortly after, I saw it on /b/ and /v/. Then, I kept hearing more and more about it, so I checked it out.

    If computers don't serve a purpose, then this doesn't either.

    For one, drop the condescending tone, you sound like an asshole, and for two, I've yet to see a computer in minecraft that could do anything other than add, subtract, remember or display data; all things I can do in my head a lot faster. I really don't care about anything I've seen computers in minecraft do; I just thought this would be a good way to make it easy to change circuits around without having to remove tons of redstone and walls from my house.

    Did I say, "This is so stupid", or anything of the sort? This is what a computer does. You're essentially making an ALU.

    Quote from Hikaru »
    Okay, so you know how all the redstone computers people have made on youtube are basically giant mutant calculators that serve no purpose in the game?

    This quote is you talking down about other people's megaprojects. Drop the condescension.

    Look at his twitter before ranting. He's adding a frickin' double rainbow of colored blocks soon.

    -Torches just act like a torch, and they can't even be worn.
    -Egg+Milk=Cake (Probably)
    -For the clay and reeds, "Still in beta". Stuff is still being added.
    -You can use your own paintings by editing the texture in the .jar file. I've done it. So have a ton of other people.
    -How are sponges a "useless [thing] in minecraft"? They're not even in the game, who says he's going to re-add them?
    -What do you do with flowers in real life? Look at them. That's about it.
    -Mining double-half-blocks is "unballence[d]" on purpose, along with stairs, and other things.
    -Apples are hard to get on purpose.
    -Why remove chain-mail if he might add back it at some point later? *cough*stillinbeta*cough*
