it also sucks when steam auto updates a game and all your mods break and you cant downgrade.

The new launcher will let you downgrade to 1.2.5. If it's before that, you can try and hunt down the version here. Orrrr, I'm sure there's some way other way to rollback versions.

Oooh! The Canyon biome would be great. I like the hardened clay, but it seems pretty rare to find at the moment. Not super hard, but you still gotta look hard for it, clay always seems to be in water.. gets annoying. I really hope he puts a Canyon biome in the game.

You're the worst. 50-pager's are the scum of the earth.

Canyon's will only make sense if their baseline ground level is 64 and the canyons go into the ground. From that screenshot (And the height of the clouds) it looks like a mountain biome with clay instead of grass.

Also, as long as I can get these biomes by generating new chunks. We aren't restarting our world again. Ugh.

Dinnerbone was changing some things that would help the community or something alone those lines. He tweeted a new control page - could it be built in tools to allow cinematic effects? Such as a flying camera of sorts.
Or the ability to zoom out in third person? Since in that picture it looks like the camera is locked to the player, but zoomed out.

Give or take some form of natural spawning hard clay would be brilliant.

when I started, I had the intention of building a zeldalike dungeon by myself, one so big and diverse, you wouldn't be able to guess what awaits you around the corner.
gotta dump a few impressions, because I hope I can finish it by 2014 and won't spoil to much ^^

ofc everything is crafted by hand






ofc no dungeon would be complete without electrics...





debugging was pretty fun so far.

So I have a mod question... and as i've been away from Minecraft for ages, I have no idea if this was patched into the game proper already.

I'll be using Oculus Rift when I get back into Minecraft, and as such I can't really tab-out, and have a browser open to check recipes, etc...

Is there a mod, or anything in game which has all the recipes in the game and is viewable in-game? IE, how to make a ladder, a half-block, whatever...? I vaguely recall some mod or other, way back when, including a recipe-book.

No no...

MinecRIFT is the Oculus Rift mod for Minecraft. In its most recent release it comes with a bundled installer that installs it, and a version of Optifine.

Since its a whole mod-pack unto itself, I don't know how well it will play with others.

However how do I make movments like the 360 version? The pc Notch sort of glides to a stop instead of just stopping like on the 360.
This niggle has put me right of the pc version and I've tweeked control settings to no avail.

How different is this game from Starmade? (I mean I know that Minecraft is much older but what can you do in Minecraft that you can't do in Starmade?) I've only recently started playing Starmade so maybe I just don't understand the differences but so far Starmade looks like it has more potential.

But you can build all that already from the basic constituent building blocks! Its not really in the spirit of the game to be able to craft every possible item.

Dinnerbone did say a few months ago that he wanted to make the bookshelves useable though

Just a fan of the game, haven't actually played much of minecraft because I didn't really understand it's appeal, however this game basically could of been a minecraft mod almost, I'm just wondering if there is something in minecraft that can't be done in starmade. I'm asking because the games are very similar and I don't really know enough about minecraft, figured people who have played both might have an idea.

That other game is really early on so things are being added too, I'm sort of asking because I figure stuff that is in minecraft might be added later, since the creators are obviously inspired by minecraft.

Hey there! The creator of this thread is on vacation so he hasn't had a chance to add in this important piece of information. For now go to the last OT and quote the first post for the server address.
As for getting whitelisted, just scroll up the page to find Ark and send him a PM requesting to be whitelisted. At the moment it's still 1.5.2, no idea when the server will up date to 1.6.2.

Do you want the ability to play with a gamepad? I know there are ways but I personally haven't bothered. Personally though I say give the PC control scheme some time. If you allow yourself in your mind to adjust to the differences in controls any current qualms you have should melt away.

I haven't played that game so I really couldn't tell you. Looks kinda interesting, I'll have to check it out. Judging from the trailer it seems to lack the Earthly feel Minecraft has. I'm not sure how a seemingly space focused game would hold my interest.

Yeah, it is much more of a space sim with a very heavy focus on block building in vine of minecraft, the build mode is amazingly useful and you can make more than just ships. I'm very interested to learn about what Starmade lacks, since I've gotten into this and it could lead me to play Minecraft (try it again) if there is something interesting that Starmade doesn't do, and at the very least it might point to what they will add to that game next because it's obviously heavily influenced. Anyways I'll check back in this thread over the next few days and see if anyone has answered this.

The huge focus of the game is building space ships and flying them around in space combat, building the best ships and really is a space sim with the artstyle and gameplay elements from Minecraft, can you create vehicles like that in Minecraft? because that is like 90% of this game.

What do you mean? You can configure which port the server uses. Then you just need to configure your NAT to forward this port to the machine you have the server running on. And of course you need to allow it in any firewalls that might be running in between.

Just messed around with the game for a while. I can see how it can be appealing to people if you like build awesomely huge ships and flying them around, combating, etc, or massive space stations. Personally I can't see it holding my interest very long, maybe if I played on a multiplayer server.

This is a game I actually wouldn't compare to Minecraft. Aside from using blocks the two games are vastly different. Minecraft's focus is mining resources, exploring, crafting, and building. We can only dream to have elaborate vehicle creation. At the end of the day though Starmade just doesn't quite grab me like Minecraft does. I will have to try the game again in multiplayer, single player just feels too sparse. The game still is only in alpha so I won't completely write it off yet.

This IS NOT the "proper" release of Bukkit it is still a developer build and as such is not made available as standard (so Neocraft isn't updated yet). However it is a good indicator that things are moving forward and if nothing rears it's ugly head with this Beta then we might get the "release" version soon.

On a separate note I bloody hate Optifine. Damn mod keeps crashing minecraft after 5 mins with out of memory messages. Minecraft runs fine without optifine so guess I am going all native with 1.6.2.

How much memory do you have allocated? I recall reading somewhere that MC runs better if you lower the amount to around 256-512MB.

Allocated 4086mbs to it but Optifine still craps out. I have no problem running minecraft (get 200fps in vanilla) I only use Optifine because it has a decent draw distance compared to the vanilla minecraft. If Mojang could KINDLY let us increase the draw distance I wouldn't need to use Optifine. I really wish they would remember not all of us are playing minecraft on bloody netbooks :-p

I will have a go at lowering the memory allocation but I get the feeling it is something screwy with Optifine.

I'm honestly shocked that we haven't seen Minecraft "lego" buckets that just come with a ton of pieces like the ones you'd find in the game. Anything you could build in the game, you can build in real life.
