    my humble mountain-top abode. small and cozy. what you see is pretty much there.

    I know it's nothing impressive. basically on this SMP server I wandered away from my main place where I've build some impressive things. if anyone cares to see, i'll take and post pics of it too.

    They give an unrealistic depth to most blocks that even a light source doesn't fix!

    Is there a way to turn shadows off? In my opinion they should be get rid of.


    Do you mean the new shading? Go to options, video settings and turn smooth shading off. I agree, it's way too dark in the wrong places, but it looks so great. :ohmy.gif:


    I agree they look good, but they are really annoying. Thanks though.

    posted a message on Different Map Generations
    Since Beta 1.3 was released, I have just been generating map after map and observing what I see. I've generated at least 80 maps so far and have thoroughly studied about 10 or so, and I noticed a few different things compared to pre-Beta 1.3

    1. Natural sandstone (?)
    2. More floating random blocks
    3. More dungeons! (more mossy cobblestone deposits in new generations than I've ever seen before)
    4. About the same number of resources
    5. Increased non-white sheep spawn rate
    6. Increased hostile mob spawn rate

    Anybody agree/disagree or have comments/additions?

    Feathers should be used to craft some kind of flying machine.

    Just a thought...


    potentially hanggliders?

    interesting, although machines don't exactly exist in minecraft.

    You said you hacked your arrows so that you could use them in traps? And you complain for not much use of feathers. Yet you don't complain that you need 9 string to make ONE piece of wool...hm.


    1. Yes machines do exist in minecraft- check out dispensers.
    2. I never said I hacked arrows. I said I have a mob trap and I found a skeleton spawner which provides me with arrows.

    learn up on minecraft, bro.

    posted a message on So what else should feathers do?
    I find feathers to be very useless items. They only serve to create one item: arrows.

    In my world though, I have a mob trap as well as a skele spawner so I have unlimited amounts of mob items. Sulphur, Arrows, and String all have good purpose. [String you can make into wool]

    But feathers can only make arrows, which I have enough of.

    What are some other things feathers should do?

    posted a message on I am legitimately freaked out
    Just now I was playing in a friend of mine's SMP server. I was spelunking a cave I just discovered.

    Everything was normal until I came across one part of a cave, when I saw a single torch hanging high up in an otherwise empty cavern that I KNEW that I did not put there. I was freaked out and just sealed off that part of the cave.

    I'm not saying it was herobrine or something stupid like that [I've never believed those people when they make claims like this or that], but what other answers to this are there? some kind of chunk error? A cruel joke by the admin? I just want some kind of closure on this because I am really freaked out right now.

    posted a message on So how rare are Squids?
    When I once spawned a world, I was next to a small little bay with land all around me, and there were about 2 packs of four squids there.

    The thing with squids is that they can only spawn in water source blocks, and once they do, they continue to sink until they despawn. And squids have the same spawning rates of other nonhostile mobs. The best way to run into squids is to stay in an area that is mostly land with something like a pond near you, chances are high that they will spawn in it if no other water is available.

    posted a message on Minecraft isn't really in Beta.
    Quote from Luke_Mann »
    You consider wrong. Features are added in Alpha, not final release. MMO games are the only things that get content updates after release.


    So with this logic, after Minecraft is considered to be completed, there will be no further updates?

    posted a message on Minecraft isn't really in Beta.
    So, a question I've been wondering is "what does being in Beta really mean?"

    The answer? I have no idea.

    My conclusion? Minecraft can't technically have phases of development, for two main reasons.

    1. It's a sandbox game. Everybody uses that term, meaning that there is no finite goal or purpose, and this is ultimately true. But in the game's creation, it's the exact same. There really is no ending goal for the game. Notch has been updating and improving it, which happens when a game is in full release.

    2. It was sold from the very beginning. Because of the fact that games are almost never sold in their "alpha" mode, let alone "beta", I consider this game to basically be fully developed.
