    posted a message on Reveal maps
    Are there any mods that reveal an entire map immediately after creation, or at least let you reveal much more of it while exploring? I use the biggest size maps so upon creation would mean upon adding the last 8 pieces of paper around it.

    VMware Fusion or Parallels if you want to pay. VirtualBox if you don't. I get by fine with VB but Fusion did work better.

    Bootcamp and dual boot Windows for best Minecraft performance, but it doesn't allow you to switch back and forth quickly (you have to reboot to switch).

    All these options will require paying for a Windows license as well.

    These are the kinds of topics that make people hate that it is kids who play Minecraft.

    No, you do not have OCD if you make all your buildings perfectly even and keep everything perfectly flat. That doesn't even begin to get close to mild cases of OCD.

    Quote from Zirak

    Would be interesting to know what happened. I don't think crash reports are necessary anymore because you should get an error message in the development console. Copy & Paste the last 20 lines or something. Make sure the error is in there.

    I recommend you doing this because it could be possible that you can't update at all because of corrupted chunks or w/e the error message says.


    The development console (I'm assuming the part of the new launcher that stays open?) would crash on exit everytime, I had to force quit it in task manager everytime.

    I got a backup from pre 1.6. Just didn't want to have to revert because of about 20 hours of playing. But yeah not losing this guy, got a few hundred hours on it :)

    posted a message on 1.6.1 corrupted world
    So I was on 1.5.2 until yesterday, and I had some mods I used. Loaded up my saves without the mods and saved again so there would be a vanilla save, after playing for a while vanilla to make sure there were no problems (only had a mod or two anyways). Updated everything and just been playing vanilla 1.6.1 for a while fine.

    Today I had a chunk not load while riding on a minecart, I fell down into infinity so exited. When I went back in it was fine, it loaded me on the moving minecart. A few hours later I saw another chunk not loading while riding the minecart so I jumped off before falling through again. Exited and went back in, chunk was still not there (minecart went across the gap fine). Restarted computer and tried again, now it won't even let me load the save. Is there any trick to recovering from a situation like this or am I screwed?

    Should have never updated so soon, normally I wait a while for all this crap to get figured out...

    posted a message on What happened when you first died in Minecraft?
    First night, had no idea what was going on. Friends and I started to drink. Every night time we would die (our "house" consisted of about 3 high dirt, and we would make dirt "steps" to get in, there was no roof) and we just gave up on surviving the night. Instead, we did a shot every night. Needless to say by the end of the night which was about 5 hours of playing we didn't have much else accomplished. I could easily recreate everything we did in that 5 hours in about 10 minutes now.

    posted a message on Trying to update and confused
    I'm having some trouble too. Updated to 1.5.1, got the mod updates for 1.5.1 (optifine, forge, enchantment plus) and now my game is somewhat broken. Half the items don't show up in frames, but the other half do for some reason. When I first loaded the world it had a ton of mismatched ID errors. The problem is I don't know which part actually caused the trouble, and can't really shut anything off to test.

    In case you weren't aware, deleting your DIM-1 folder will delete that tower you built in the nether. I couldn't tell from your original post if that's something you care about or not, but just wanted to point it out.


    Yeah, that tower was pretty lame, just did it to have a safe spot to come out in. Didn't like the way it was set up anyways and planned on redoing it. This will actually be easier :)

    Awesome, thanks for the info.

    One more question, do stats/achievements get reset on updates? I don't want to lose my stats.

    posted a message on 1.5 update questions
    So this is the first update that's came out since I started playing on the PC. On the Xbox I've been through multiple, and the biome changes/world generation means that I generally just start a new map. Since we can always explore more space on PC, I didn't want to have to restart my map. So the questions are:
    1. Will the biomes change like on 360 to where I could possibly have snow in my desert, and former snowy areas would not snow anymore?
    2. I haven't done much in my nether (just a central tower around my one portal), would I be able to reset it somehow to get quartz spawning close by?
    Unrelated to map update questions:
    3. I have Minecraft Forge, Optifine, and that mod launcher that Optifine requires, along with a lot of texture packs. What is the proper way to update everything and not screw up my game?

    posted a message on Creative Builds are not as Impressive as Survival Builds...Agree?
    I go back and forth on the question, mostly because the amount of time I spent building things on survival that would not take nearly as long on creative. I spent 10s of hours clearing a desert just to build a sandstone pyramid, this was before enchanting too so it was all unenchanted tools.

    They mostly get in the way, and don't really help all that much. If they attacked enemies without you having to attack them first, then I would take them everywhere.

    posted a message on Do you guys care about this when branch mining?
    In branch mining (what you are doing, it isn't strip mining) I fill in the floor with dirt or gravel, and leave the top and side holes there. On my old first maps I did fill in with dirt or cobble on my main tunnels.
