It would be fun if it takes off.
I made a mention today on my blog, so hopefully that drives some traffic... We'll see.

Oct 8, 2010Posted in: DiscussionQuote from Monsora »This is a new cart booster setup I made a few days ago. I made a new youtube video showing how far it can run and how to make your own. I tried to time how long it would run before it died, but I got bored (and dizzy) after about 2-3 minutes of watching it spin in a loop track.
I guess I don't really understand what's going on or how it works... could you explain it a little more?

HAHA. That's a great achievement! Congratulations on creating a terrifying weapon and getting publicity for it.
Oct 7, 2010Great! I'm looking forward to reading your blog.Posted in: Discussion
I also maintain a blog called "Lode Off My Mine" about my life for a whole year in Minecraft. Day 7 will be posting later today, so it's early in my adventures... but it should be a lot of fun.
Oct 7, 2010Posted in: DiscussionQuote from archdrone »Hi! I'm relatively new to the message boards but here we go
I'm taking part in a 24 hour gaming charity called Exra Life:
My son underwent some major cardiac surgery back in July and I'll be raising money for the hospital where he got his work done (Children's Hospital of Boston).
I'd figure I'd play Minecraft for 24 hours (starting with a fresh world on hard) and then post a youtube video of the creation if I met my donation goal. I'd appreciate any donations. Its a good cause and since I'm spending nights playing this game anyways, figure it would be a fun way to make some money for the hospital.
Here is my donation page:
That's really great! I'll tell people about it on my blog http://lodeoffmymine.blogspot.com. Best of luck!

Quote from jfishjosh »Quote from fffizzz »i think you wanted twitter.com as the @ wont work here.
Haha. It doesn't "technically" work, but it's still an accepted internet convention for directing a message to a specific person.
No, it's not. It's a Twitter convention that some people like to take elsewhere... too bad Facebook started using it too, because it looks ridiculous.
The origin of something doesn't limit it to that place. With its inclusion in Facebook, it has become ubiquitous on the internet for response to someone. In actuality, it didn't start with Twitter. Twitter adopted it and expanded its use, but it was originally used in early forums without threading to allow for specific responses. (Like the "quoting" function of most modern forums).
It doesn't matter either way. Who cares how it's used here? Granted, it won't get answered, but it's an acceptable use of the symbol.
Oct 6, 2010Posted in: DiscussionQuote from MrMawkish »Haha thank you for the feedback :smile.gif: Yes you are right. But putting a lot of torches out of it kinda looks weird :ohmy.gif: and I cant think of anything else. Maybe when lanterns come out? Iron is easy to get but this is my INVedit world. I just edit my inventory :smile.gif:
Oh and I just uploaded the video so people could give me ideas so the quality isnt as good right now. It takes a day or two for it to go to normal quality for some reason. Happens to all my videos.
I see. Well a rollercoaster is a great idea. I've also seen people doing some really fun stuff with water slides (just check youtube). Maybe you could try to go for the biggest and most elaborate water slide, starting in that room. Some people take advantage of the water physics to make jumps that actually move you up using waterfalls...
Oct 6, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Minecraft Halloween UpdateQuote from cooper »I don't get why everyone says to use torches where you don't go often and to use lanturns for places you common. For me it would be the other way around.
If you're there a lot you can relight the torches, hopefully before anything spawns. If you're not there a torch could go out, and you'd never know it. Then one day, when you're organizing your inventory or something, BOOM, creeper comes up behind you from the dark depths of your untended home.
The idea is simply that you will explore a cave or some area for a while, then leave it FOREVER. Then you will not have wasted any lanterns. The torches will go out and life moves on. But for areas where you are always traveling, lanterns mean you never have to worry about relighting. You just go about your business as usual.
Oct 6, 2010jfishjosh posted a message on I just want to clear this up with Floating Island BiomesPosted in: Alpha - Minecraft Halloween UpdateQuote from Ramen »Floating islands should be just hovering above nearly sea-level plains. That way mountain folk and floating island folk can send each other funny gestures while the ground-level people are kept in the dark and totally not invited to any of their parties. Duh.
Poor ground-level folks... They'll just have to have their own parties and invite only and cave folk.
Oct 6, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Minecraft Halloween UpdateQuote from Veovis Muad »If the torch's item id is replaced with the lantern, then all torches, placed or not, will become lanterns. So it's a waste of time to place them all like that.
But are we sure that's what will happen?
