    I thought the cacti update was going to ruin my entrance, but all is fine with it, however, now with the slimes spawning in lit caves even on peaceful?

    > implying you're gonna get that close while looking right at him

    If you're just running around, chopping trees/killing pigs/looking for caves/players, you likely wont even notice him

    Try doing that in CMP and see who can see you. The bright colored name hovering over you will give you away for sure.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that, and Notch has done the same thing for SMP too(as his blog shows)....well that ruins 99% of my SMP because of floating names, stalking someone wont work when they can just look around and see your floating name, hiding wont work...floating name...camo, nope :SSSS:

    Gross. Please don't bring that /v/ crap here.

    We don't need another Facepunch.

    I don't visit /v/ or Facepunch, so uh....

    Ive still been working on it, backing up my saves right now though, honestly, I doubt I will get it done, so hopefully there is more who have completed it! (Oh also, even if I dont make it, as I said, I am still going to complete a dungeon)

    can you pick up obsidian?

    Read more of the thread, you can mine obsidian with a diamond pickaxe, but takes something like 15 seconds to mine a single block of the stuff, as for your actual question, yes, once mined, you can, actually, pick the block up

    I'm going to be on the move constantly and if i ever need to stop, spy on someone...

    When you see it...

    Now with grass feet.

    I hope that's not a sniper's crosshair.

    WHAT THE F-BOOMHEADSHOT.

    The only problem is that you are 3D, so when I move I will be able to tell you are there. This is the problem with stealth in multiplayer- it is near impossible without a custom skin build for one spot, and even then it isn't hard to tell you are there with a little moving around. I want a system with partial transparency based on shadows, and used when wearing special stealth-armor or something.

    You must use a diamond pickaxe.

    What he said, but even then it still takes 15 seconds or something iirc

    Hate to say it(but I bet I get ninjad), but this is kind of old, it is definently faster the mining the obsidian, but also perminently destroys a lava spring :sad.gif:

    Edit: oh god, ninjad 7 times!

    posted a message on My Idea of SMP
    Zombie Siege is the name you're looking for, not Survival, not sure what has changed since then, but Zombie Siege would be more restricted then Survival, and might consist of pre-game building, and then once the Zombie Siege starts, it wont stop till everyone is dead, which means it wont be a very long game.

    And during the siege, players cannot place blocks, the monsters however can destroy them to get at players, this will prevent players from digging a hole and completely covering themselves to prolong the game, as the zombies will dig a gap to you, and then creepers will rain down upon you

    posted a message on Lever-controlled water dispenser.
    I thought this was ingenius until I remembered redstone torches don't melt ice.
    One thing I think would be awesome, is this "floodgate" should not be specific to water, it will allow any block to pass through it when open, which means: sand/gravel will fall when it opens, creating hidden trapdoors, or allowing the use of water.
    I really do hope this is part of this weeks secret update!

    I'm hoping skinning is disabled for MP, due to the fact that you can just skin dirt/stone with transparencies and see through the world.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing, he will have to change the way he textures the world.
    Maybe he can stream the servers textures to each client, since they are very small in size, and that gets cached on the client side, but each time you reconnect to the same server, it reverifies the file to make sure you haven't tampered with it.
    There are easier ways to verify it, but this way will allow custom skins in SP, and allows the servers to have custom skins.

    I have the map, but the rest of the contestants haven't been active in the thread. :tongue.gif:

    Yeah sorry, I've been plagued by misfortune and badluck in regards to my saves, having my computer cut its power and losing the entire world kind of thing(lost a few worlds as a result), finally got a new stable world but yeah, no dungeon now :SSSS:

    I am still going to make one though, and who knows I might be able to pull something off before the end of friday(american time, as I am in australia), I got about 10 hours left of today

    posted a message on The Sad Story of Thomas the Sheep
    Quote from Bingbing »
    Hey, look who made a shrine of Thomas?



    Yes, I set the shrine on fire. Honestly didn't expect the wool to catch the flames. Defiling the shrines of gods tends to leave me rather giddy. Now back to building that tower of mine, which I have decided to name [poorly] the Tower of Babel. Why? So that I can reach the heavens and wipe out the entire pantheon! Mootch shall burn, burn in the molten lifeblood of the Earth. Jasper shall be cut down for godly pig meat, although I'll feel VERY bad about it. Notch will be spared, since no more Minecraft updates would be horrifying. But Thomas shall drown, drown in water once again, unable to fight the currents. Except instead of water it will be magma.

    Then we can stop this whole god thing.

    In before Bingbing can no longer speak english >.>

    I wouldn't play it, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be possible.

    I agree, and I am fairly sure it will be possible, it is just a plugin will need to be made by someone for it to happen, Notch wont and shouldnt do it, just allow it through plugins

    One life woulda been cool for extreme zombie survival where the map resets and everyone respawn after everyone died.
    To make it less boring for dead people they could become zombies with regular zombie priviliges, except higher IQ.

    Now thats an idea I can get behind, for the zombie siege, any players that fall become a zombie/creeper/skeleton/spider(possibly at random, in place of a regular spawn), it would be seperate to regular survival though.
    And if you die as a monster you simply respawn elsewhere as another monster.
    Heck, if you want it epic scale, you can have the day/night cycle still, and if you're a zombie/skeleton you need to find cover or start burning :Skeleton:
