    posted a message on What's the deal!?!?
    I have friends that don't get Minecraft. They ask me "What do you do in that game?"... I respond with the usual "Well kinda whatever you want. You can go and kill a bunch of Monsters or you can build something monstrous or almost anything. It's more of a game where you set your own goals and reach them."...... "Oh..."

    For some people there has to be an obvious goal in the game. It's boring to them if they set their own goal. Not saying that Minecraft's style is better. Minecraft just isn't for some people. Some people like to have goals set by other people and they have the challenge of meeting those goals.

    Minecraft is for people with more of a child-like imagination.

    Looks like a pre-1.9/1.0 map explored on a 1.0 server.

    posted a message on Notch is mad at Simon and Lewis
    To be completely honest I didn't really even know who Yogscast was until this whole non-sense started. I had heard their name come up but that's about it. Them saying they are a large part of Minecraft's success is EXTREMELY arrogant and after seeing pictures of them they seem smug as well.

    Plus any mature adult knows that if you are speaking publicly at an event where a decent amount of kids are in attendance you use 'PG' language. It's not a matter of right or wrong, it's a matter of respect. They clearly have gotten so full of themselves that they think they are above all of that.

    Quote from volcano_fl

    Reinstalling windows is never 'due'. It's just the only solution a noob can think of when it can't find the problem.


    Wrong, sometimes is more troublesome to go about fixing all the problems and it's easier to wipe the slate clean. Plus sometimes 'fixing' one problem can cause another and you can do a lot of chasing. Like when a car is totaled. Don't worry though, we get it, you're a big bad internet pro.


    As for the topic of the thread. Have your reinstalled Java? There could be an issue with Java tarding out and Minecraft isn't able to find out reliably what chunks it has generated and which ones it hasn't. Also, just in case, make sure to run Minecraft.exe as admin (Right click icon -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Check 'Run this program as Administrator').

    posted a message on Really you guys?
    It seems to me Mojang was going more for a comical "Portal Song" end discussion more then anything serious. I was laughing at some of the banter being the 2 beings. If you take anything serious from it, it should be "embrace your uniqueness and creativity, it's what makes you you."

    It could be wickedly cut down though, it was a tad long. I read EXTREMELY slow, like not even funny slow so it was painfully long for me and the text speed almost out ran me on the long paragraphs. The thought "when is this over?" crossed my mind a few times while reading it. This shouldn't happen lol. At the very least there should be a skip button.

    I don't mind the credits either, even if people don't read them it feels good to slap your name on something your proud of. You do it more for pride then to let people know you were involved. The fact that there are credits in the game doesn't bother me. If it bothers you, then you need to rethink why you are playing Minecraft. Are you in it for the game or the badge that you play the game?

    My thoughts on the ending: Good Job Mojang.

    They should just make a video where someone goes to the end, plays Justin Bieber and the Ender Dragon dies.

    I think you meant, 8 days until people start to wonder what Notch was doing for a month.
