    posted a message on Making Minecraft with Source SDK?
    I'm sorry, but this probably wouldn't work, and if it did, it would be even more laggy than the original minecraft.

    1. Minecraft works by having an almost random world spawn when you decide to make a new world, Source has to load the map file from your HDD, so you could only play premade "worlds", and then you get into the problem with number 2.

    2. Minecraft is a fully destructible world (except for bedrock), you can destroy every single block in the game (except for the aforementioned bedrock), in source on the other hand, the environment is not destructible, so you couldn't "mine" in it.

    3. Even if someone managed to get around 1 and 2 (say... the level is just the bedrock, and all the blocks are separate props), it would be much more laggy than the original minecraft. Source is only built to handle 1024 props on screen, and assuming each block is a prop (i see no other way to do it), your looking at millions of props, causing source to lag to unprecedented amounts (the reason that it only supports 1024 props is that each and every prop has physics enabled, and physics is calculated per-object),

    Am I the only one who is constantly getting this picture?

    I wish people would stop using imageshack and just use imgur


    Yea, i hated imageshack ever since they redesigned their site, but i have not changed yet since i didn't know what to change to. The image has now been re uploaded to imgur.

    posted a message on Huge Portal 2 icon [256x256]
    Originally i did this for the portal 2 countdown thread at the steam forums, but i soon realised it also belongs here.

    Basicly, This:



    The picture is the icon/logo for Portal 2, a game which releases in mid-april.

    Anyway, i wanted to do something for the portal 2 video countdown thread at the portal 2 steam forums, but after seeing that people already made still alive in note blocks, i decided to do this. The hole was MCEdit'ed in, and all the wool was spawned with the toomanyitems mod. However, every single block in the icon was placed by me, in game. And since Minecraft doesn't load chunks (are they still called that since the 1.3 patch?) more than 200 blocks away, the top bit is cut off, but it is still there.

    actually, like this

    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Lava: :Lava: :Lava: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Glass: :Glass: :Lava: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Glass: :Glass: :Lava: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Glass: :Glass: :Lava: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Lava: :Lava: :Lava: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass:

    Then demolish all the glass and replace it (quickly, before the lava flows) with water, and the lava will turn into obsidian. In the shape of a portal.

    Gah! I woke up 8 min late!

    The purple texture counts as a block, and you can't place blocks in it, and arrows stop when they hit it. I hacked my inventory for testing so i don't know what breaking one of the obsidian blocks.

    Portals in the same chunk in "the nether" don't work, only one can be litten as a time.

    If there are two portals in the same chunk in earth, both lead to the same portal in the nether, and the nether portal links to the last built.

    If you attack one zombie pigman, they all come together and kill you.

    Also, apparently item drops on death don't work any more.

    Are you on XP or Vista/7

    For XP:

    Open up C:\Documents and Settings\YourNameHere\ApplicationData\Roaming\.minecraft and then delete the entire folder named "bin", then restart the game. It should work.

    For Vista/7


    Open up C:\Users\YourNameHere\App\Data\Roaming\.minecraft and then delete the entire folder named "bin", then restart the game. It should work.
