    Quote from Tyeeeee1 »
    Not yet, but looking at the mineshaft that ive been digging out for around 4 days... holy sh*t! It takes me almost 2 full minutes to walk from one end to the other. Heck I can even see the moon because the chunks despawn before I hit the end...
    BTW to save unnecessary stone I'm building with a base pattern of:
    :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone:
    :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone:
    :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone:
    :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone:
    :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone:
    The amount of blocks on the Y-axis fluctuate a lot depending on what the ground's shape is, so it is impossible to count the real number of used blocks because you cant see what wall segments have all 3 layers completely filled...


    Alternatively, I would fill the center with sand or gravel. It would help absorb creeper blasts, and puts use the large amount of gravel you might come across.

    That's the big gaping hole you see at the top.


    He was making a deathstar reference I believe :smile.gif:


    Yup. I can make a few more too, but I think that's the most important one of all.

    Is it a fully armed and operational battlestation?

    If it is... where is the 3m wide exhaust port for me to drop the TNT?



    You know, I'm actually thinking of filling a bunch of it with TNT and youtubing the resulting explosion :smile.gif:


    If you do... you can have my children and children's children.

    Plus... any plans for a self-destruct button?

    Milk in buckets.
    Eggs.
    Fishing poles.

    They all have no uses, so i guess they will soon?

    Would be cool to make cheese.


    Milk in buckets would be useful... besides aiming to making milk springs. <__<

    But all three useless items need to have use. Plus Slime balls... I can see slime balls be used to make rubbery cubes, like packed snow cubes.

    You people bitching about not having a game update need to chill. Updates come in more forms than one. This weeks update was all business related. That's important in the development of them game, too.


    Agreed.

    i had a dream last night where i was in minecraft and i ate some eggs

    i predict that this will be the next update


    We might have an MineCraft oracle here. Use of eggs would be nice... especially hard-boiled eggs.

    Build a small village, and then abandon it so zombies can spawn in it.

    LOL! XD

    But from his blog, that sounds like the Friday Update to me. I'm here to defend Notch, and that he has a ton on his plate. Lets be patience, and let him do whats necessary to keep MineCraft alive.


    so when your electricity is gone for a few months, and your provider tells you "we had paperwork to do", you're okay with that too? I'm sorry, thats not how capitalism works. Capitalism means, you PAY and he delivers.


    I would be a frustrated if that happened, but he's a single man operation that spending the past week and this week as well fixing a server and hiring help, let alone the legal stuff. The legal stuff is time consuming, but if he gets someone else to do it for him (thus he hiring help) and then he and a newly formed team can throw out updates every weekend.

    It's an investment of time that I will give him, cause in the long run, two weekends of legal stuff can equal months on non-stop programming and server maintenance, maybe even server expansion.

    As for your example, if the server suddenly closed and I don't see it in a month or two... yes, I would be quite pissed. But the server is up, I'm still enjoying the game (working on my first big project), and quite content at the present time, and thus no reason to be angry at him.


    ANYWHO, that out of the way. What I'm aiming for is:
    1. Fishing
    2. Biomes
    3. Water Mobs (fish and monsters)

    I made this binary clock using many of the logic gates listed here.
    It's basically a pulser and a few Flip Flops. It took long time, until i had found all redstones i needed for this project :tongue.gif:

    You can watch a video of it .

    Finished the exterior shell of my lighthouse. Plan to work on the stairs... sprial stairs, causing a bit of frustration. Beside that, scoping the bridge to it. So in sum, phase 1 done... several more phases to go. <_<

    posted a message on Spider Jump
    I play on HARD, and wish for things to jump out at me. But I hear those spiders, and I get my sword out and fight to the death... if outnumbered, I run. I usually encounter a group of 2-3 spiders.

    But awesome story... wish for an epic conclusion: It jumps, you swing-- INSTANT slow-motion. POW! Spider is upcutted, and our hero dances in victory.
    But still, the panic reflex to hit ESC and click peaceful is a pretty good skill. Won't save you from lava on the face though.

    posted a message on Secret Friday Update Tomorrow?
    My money is on that he won't get around to an update. His blog does mention that he's plate is full with corporate and business stuff. But I'm not upset with it, especially since his blog apologizes for the lack of updates. He knows we want it, but hasn't gotten around to it. So I'll be patient and wait for a grand reopening of Secret Friday Updates when he releases a new update.
