dangit. i had no idea what a t flip-flop even was.
the more you know i guess.
I did a forum search, but for "toggle button" :tongue.gif:
I guess while this thread is here, what is the smallest t flip-flop that works in SMP? because the one in the post above me doesn't as far as i can tell.

Because of the recent release of this picture, people are thinking the grey bar below the heart bar is an experience bar.
Notch has also shown was he is making combat deeper, with the inclusion of things like hold-to-charge bow mechanics , and Critical Hits.
WHY XP WOULD MAKE THINGS WORSE:
I, for one, am not looking forward to XP. I have played on many a PVP server, and i know how ridiculous they are. if the spawn isn't protected, then everyone just punches everyone else. They Don't care if the other person has a sword, or armor. They just mindlessly attack. And the worst part is that they actually win. If someone has a stone sword, and someone using only their fists gets the jump on them, the battle is easily won by the guy carrying nothing. That should not happen.
Now imagine this same scenario, except with XP. Now, we don't know how XP is going to work, and it could be completely different than what i am assuming.
This is what i think XP will be like:
- XP will be gained from killing other players, mobs, and maybe even mining uncommon blocks.
- XP will reset back to zero when you die
- XP will determine how strong your attack is
So you've been playing on your favorite PVP server for a few hours. You have a nice little base, and you just mined enough iron to finish a set of armor. Your almost level 4, and your smelting away. Another player walks in through your door. He has just started playing, and somehow stumbled on your home. when he sees you not looking, he takes out his wooden sword and quickly kills you. Since he is just level one, and he just killed a level 3 person, he levels up. Now, he's level 2, and has a full set of armor. And you are sent back to the spawn. No XP. No items.
This doesn't sound fun to me. Now, I know XP could still work completely different than this. XP might not even end up in the game. But it still doesn't matter. I don't think we need XP at all.
WHY WE DON'T EVEN NEED XP:
I want to take a look at Terraria here. The biggest difference between the core game of Minecraft, and that of Terraria, is that Minecraft is more about building, and Terraria is more about building a character. This is why Minecraft has 16 colors of wool, and Terraria has 9 different armor sets.
Even though it's focused on character builds, Terraria doesn't have XP either. To upgrade your character, you still have to explore the world, finding Heart Pieces, Item Chests, and collection Mana Crystals. That is how I think character building should be in these types of games. The more you explore, the better you get. Not the more things you mindlessly kill.
I think XP would also break the balance of minecraft. Unless implemented in a different way than what I am assuming, players will become to powerful. The enemies wont get stronger as you do. Eventually you will be a high enough level, that you are all but invincible.
Sure, there could be stronger enemies, but if you are playing on a server, there is no way the game could make the enemies stronger when attacking you, but not when attacking anyone else. That would completely negate the effects of XP anyway, as enemies would stay the same difficulty, even as you got stronger.
All in all, i do not think there will be a way to fairly implement XP into the game, without it being completely pointless.
I want to hear what everyone else thinks though, so please respond.
Thanks for Reading

to add a longer delay, just add more repeaters to the redstone circuit. i tried it, but i decided i like the shortest delay the best

I've thought about making a food dispenser as well, but the only problem is that it could only hold 9 items, as foods aren't stackable.
