Mar 20, 2013I am trying to write a tool in C# that will automate the installation of mods downloaded from a list of URLs. Teaching myself C# as I go, I have managed to make my program download files, append files from a list to minecraft.jar, make backups of everything, and copy files around as needed.Posted in: Minecraft Tools
Once the mods (in zip format) are downloaded, I need to append their contents to the minecraft.jar. My method for appending files needs nothing more than a list of files to append, but I need a way to generate this list.
List<string> files = new List<string>(); files.Add(@"myfile.txt"); files.Add(@"myFile2.txt"); ZipFile zipFile = new ZipFile(System.IO.Path.Combine(Root, "JARs/minecraft.jar"));
Unfortunately, I have no idea how I can create a list of files extracted from the zipped mods. If I could avoid unzipping all of them, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I can just delete the extracted files after they are appended to the JAR file.
I am using SharpZipLib, as the title implies.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Cats dont work for repelling Creepers, at least not consistently. When a Creeper spots a cat, it doesnt just run away, it picks a random direction and runs that way, even if that direction is straight at you. Ive experienced it not only in survival, but also in Mob filters. Slabs are a decent way to handle mob spawning, but make the environment look terrible. A Beacon Effect would be a great way to handle it that wouldnt ruin the way the environment looks.
Slabs are terrible? I take it you never use any stone, stone brick, wood planks, or cobble in your designs, yes? Since slabs look exactly like those blocks, and slabs look terrible.

Surviving in a snowy biome would be epic if this were true.
I have a mod on my server that does this. It is, in fact, epic.
Feb 3, 2013cadika_orade posted a message on Minecraft Online option available in Snapshot! [Pic included][13w04a]I'm going to guess that it allows you to create a server with Curse Premium, which means that in no time at all the launcher will be rubbish.Posted in: Future Updates
I can barely go on the wiki or these forums without my laptop overheating, grinding to a halt, and just generally try not to explode under all these blasted advertisements. This laptop can run Minecraft on Fancy at a solid 40+ FPS. It shouldn't lock up just trying to load the ads for the Minecraft forum.
I hate you, Curse, and no I do NOT care about the latest news in World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Rift, Spiral Knights, Castle Crashers, or any other game you want to talk about on the front page. This is Minecraft Forum! Stop talking about other games!

Someone knowledgeable about this should write a wiki article about just NBT tags, which ones exist and what they all do.

so snow can act like real snow?
Considering real snow doesn't just fall apart when there's nothing below it, no. Minecraft snow is now even less like real snow.
Also a problem for me server players, since a couple of them have just finished a massive castle built on clouds of snow blocks. This will be very, very bad for them when the server updates. :/

No, they aren't. They were asking for citation on the fact they will be included in 1.5.
Not what they said.
Quote from Laughing_Man16
And it saddens me that some people don't understand that the red dragon was something Notch mused about in the early days of Minecraft and almost nothing has been said of it since. And now out of no where the OP claims it will be in 1.5 without any proof and seeing as they are the only one that seems to have 'heard' this rumor No one with even half a brain cell should consider this as anything more than a hardly veiled attempt at starting a rumor about something that was never even remotely true. Now go check the dates on the crap you are trying to link us to and then check the date on the OP and then try to call us the morons.
1. Early days of Minecraft? Exactly how long have you been playing?
2. Learn to read. OP claimed that he heard that dragons would be in 1.5. Are you going to dispute that he hear the same rumor that comes around every single update? Are you requesting proof that he heard this rumor? Exactly what do you expect OP to provide as proof of this?
3. Red dragons were proposed as a future addition officially. I'd call that at least "remotely true."
4. Check the validity of the links and see that they are reasonably reliable sources of the fact the red dragon were officially proposed. Find one of my sources to be false and I will concede.
5. Learn to grammar.

Citation needed. Until you show some kind of documentation that this is even rumored your just talking non-sense as far as any one else is concerned.
You are both morons.
It saddens me that there are still people too stupid to use Google or the Minecraft Wiki. You should both be banned from commenting on this site until you learn to use the most powerful force on Earth for something other than asking OP to deliver.
Jan 29, 2013My server already has amazingly epic terrain, and has been using the same map since 1.3. A terrain update would do little to improve the already breathe-taking terrain and would require starting an entirely new map.Posted in: Future Updates
Now. A terrain update that adds small-scale content retroactively (structures, ores, etc.) and makes transitional areas between old chunks and new chunks would be simply brilliant.
Last time my server had to start a new map, everyone left because nobody wanted to start all over. It took months to get a handful of regular players again.
Jan 28, 2013It is a theme, not a rule. That's all. It is Mojang saying "let's make this update focus extra on X", and they do it. If they have brilliant ideas or fix bugs along the way not directly related to "X", it isn't a big deal. The focus is still on "X".Posted in: Future Updates

I don't think that the testifi I MEAN villager model and texture is that bad, but it is slightly creepy that they ALL have the same face (even the witches) and that they BREED IN PUBLIC . EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE THE SAME GENDER (well, their texture makes it look like they are the same gender).
They are hermaphroditic and reproduce by recombinational fission.
- All villagers are identical in basic physiology, but genetically slightly different (hence differing occupations, trades, etc.)
- When they breed, two villagers bring their noses into brief contact in order to exchange gametes (and therefore DNA).
- One of the villagers then combines this new DNA with their own in order to produce the DNA of the new villager, which rapidly develops into a state capable of surviving outside the parent and is thusly ejected, somehow fully clothed and already with a chosen profession.

wouldn't the fact that the legal document states the 'mindcraft app' make if null and void as their isn't a mindcraft app?
My thoughts exactly.
Jul 22, 2012cadika_orade posted a message on Lawsuit Filed Against Mojang - This Time, For Obscure PatentI actually looked up this patent, and I have to say that it is one of the most vague patents I have ever seen.Posted in: News
There is, I think, a bit of a loophole. The system describe is based around a smartcard being scanned at a computer and the data of the smartcard being sent to a remote server for verification. This is a very weak case because:
- Hardly anyone uses smartcards lately, and Android phones certainly do not. The only smartcards I see lately are in cable decoder boxes.
- I can say with the utmost honesty and certainty that Mojang has never made a product called "Mindcraft" that uses any sort of remote verification system. Ever.
I simply cannot believe that the US patent office would approve someone patenting the very concept of someone's login ID being checked against a remote server. (-___- #)

Of course I have.
Yes, I know, and it's sad that Apple get to profit from them.
You don't know that, considering Apple takes 0.99$ Each DL in addition to X$ a month to keep it in the app store.
Those who can afford to waste money on an iPhone/iPod Touch can most likely afford a decent computer.
So get a smaller one. I bet someone would give out money to take away one of their old ones. Or you could always just turn of view bobbing.
Has it occured to you that some people actually WANT Minecraft for their iOS devices? I don't get to spend nearly enough time playing on my $2600 self-built gaming PC. Having Minecraft with me between classes will be excellent. Also, if Apple too $.99 on every download, there would be no apps because many apps are free and most are $.99. Apple currently takes 25% of the sales on an app. If it is free they take nothing. If it includes iAds they take nothing. Have you ever even coded an iOS app? I doubt so.

Aw God D--- IT! Indie game my a--, Mojang has become such sellouts!
Wow. Have you never played another indie game besides Minecraft? Many of the best indie games are available for iOS already and some actually started there. :/
Considering it will likely sell for $0.99, I can't imagine they are doing it for the money. This will allow many more people to play Minecraft than before. My mum likes Minecraft but my enormous monitor makes her motion sick. The tiny screen and creative mode of PE will be just the thing.Quote from Chimpa_Wompa
I thought they were Indie? Apple is like the least Indie thing evah...
Again, you guys speak of things you know nothing about. Am I the only one on this site who actually likes Minecraft?
Sep 7, 2011This is actually cool from a A.I. point of view. The terrain has a rather complex cellular automata A.I., something that can be easily mirrored in the mobs.Posted in: News
Imagine if, when threatened, a group of cows huddled together facing out to defend themselves. Alternatively, sheep may benefit from a modified "boids" A.I, causing them to flock together and move in the same general direction as the closest sheep nearby.
//pseudo code. I'm not in Java.
sheep.direction = (closest.sheep.direction + 2nd_closest.sheep.direction) / 2 + random(-15 to 15)
Something like that would cause every sheep to interpolate the direction of the 2 closest sheep, while adding a small offset for more interesting flock movement.
Google "boids simulation" for more info!
