    I installed the mod, and I have experienced some problems. For most of the explosives, when I activate them, they just turn into a white, smoking piece of primed TNT that doesn't do anything. The only one that seems to work for me is the Tunneling Explosive. I'm hoping this can get fixed ;) .

    posted a message on [Launcher] Magic Launcher 1.3.4 (mods, options, profiles, news)
    I've been using the launcher for a while, and it's generally worked pretty well with most of the mods I've got. However, I'm getting some problems with Optifine and related mods. When I try to log in, it has a blank white screen. I think it may be due to me having a bunch of other mods already, but I can't figure out how to clear them out/update it. Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Excuse me, but I'm having difficulty getting this mod to work. I'm trying the basic and smooth versions (I'm not sure if you have to have one or both) with the Magic Launcher, but when I enter Minecraft the screen is just white. I don't see any apparent FAQ or Known Problems on here, and I'd rather not have to search through 700 pages to find help. If somebody could give me some advice, I'd appreciate it.

    posted a message on Little Blocks Mod [2.2.2.1] Creation contest! [770KDLs]
    This is by far one of the coolest mods I've seen :D . I am a big fan of LEGO, and to be able to build tiny structures like this is really fun. One problem I've experienced is that movement in Minecraft is wierd; it will randomly become really sensitive and flip out even when I change the sensitivity :mellow: . I hope there's a way to fix this, I'd like to start using it soon.

    While it may not have been intentional, I am getting the feeling that people are thinking of me as a bit of a noob. I'm not saying this Minecraft community is mean, just that you have much different experiences with the game than what I'm used to. My real idea was "What if there were dangerous, but valuable, blocks in The Nether?", but it was interpreted as "hey, you should be able to get diamonds and stuff in the nether!! That would be so cool!". In gaming forums like this, I often find that people have a much stricter scale about what's funny and what's annoying, or what's overpowered or what's useless. Because people are judging my ideas based on how overpowered or not something is, rather than the creativity or originality of the core idea, I'm going to keep most of my ideas within my group of friends (for now). I'm not being immature or greedy, but I'd rather have discussions about what the features would be like instead of how they don't match somebody's exact gaming strategies.

    I hope people don't see this as some overreaction to a couple comments, but instead as a different way of trying to understand the community.

    You may not be aware that this is texture pack has a back story. (I think it might be the only texture back with a back story.) The back story in short is that our hero Stephen has been tragically separated from his lost love Isabella--hence the darkness and depression. I hope this helps you enjoy the pack more...if you look at the prior comments in this thread, you will see that it has generated fan fiction and even a love note from Stephen to Isabella appears...very interesting reading! Bonemouse is a genius.


    Ah, now that makes more sense to me now. When it comes to reading through forums like this, I don't often read through the entire topic if it's over 15 pages or so because I can get stuck reading through them for hours :P .

    I like this idea, maybe he would even drop experience if you kill him (Not that you would want to, or else he'd call for the Iron Golems to chase you out of the village O_O).

    Here is a revised version of my original idea; obsidian would be found in chests in Nether Fortresses and diamonds/redstone wouldn't be in there.

    -Dirt Cubes: Dirt cubes are hidden in hills of Netherrack, but will drop 2-3 blocks of dirt if you can find them. They look somewhat like Netherrack, but have a lighter color and make a different sound when hit with a tool.
    -Ice Cubes: Ice cubes can be found in the upper parts of The Nether, far away from any pools of lava. Mining an ice cube will give you 1-2 blocks of ice, but if it's near any sources of heat (Torches, lava, furnaces, etc.) then it will melt and create a pool of water right where it is.
    -Sand Cubes: Sand cubes generate along walls of caves and Nether Fortresses. They can generate or be placed above an open space, but if you hit one it will fall down like sand. When mined out, these will drop 1 block of sand, but they're generally found in groups of 2-3.

    Also, if you wash Nether Bricks (Crafting a couple with a bucket of water) it will turn it into Brick blocks (Just for decoration, and it gives you the same amount of blocks you put in).

    I live in the Nether on a server, and from experience I can tell you that unless you are somehow trapped in the nether and desperate to get back, but seem to have forgotten to bring a portal with you, the obsidian and diamond cubes are useless. What you really need are ice cubes that you can break open to have a source of water in the Nether, and perhaps build a farm around it. Also, as crazy as it may seem, you need a LOT of dirt in the Nether, for farming trees, wheat, and other stuff. Another useful thing would be sand cubes so you are able to get glass to make potions. Anyways, good idea, but you picked some useless items.


    Yeah, not all of these were very polished ideas, but dirt and sand would be good to have. I originally forgot that trees could actually grow in The Nether, due to it being so fiery and dangerous. The reason I put diamonds in there was to allow you to mine Obsidian, so that you could make a Nether portal, but simply having the Obsidian in a chest would work too. This was one of my first ideas here on the Minecraft forums, and I admit I could have put some more thought into it.

    Down in the dark pits of The Nether, it seems like the Netherrack just goes on and on forever, and apart from mob drops, there really isn't anything useful. Just below the surface, however, lies Nether Cubes. Diamond, Obsidian, and Redstone can be mined from these, but not without some risk. Here's a general idea of what Nether Cubes are, and why you would ever want to risk mining them:

    Nether Cubes are certain ores that are contained within a glass case. Different ores have different attributes in their generation in the world and the difficulty of mining them.

    -Obsidian Cubes: There are times when you can get hopelessly lost in The Nether, but you *really* don't want to die and lose all your stuff. If you can manage to mine out Obsidian Cubes, you'll be able to make a new portal back to The Overworld. Obsidian Cubes can be found at the edges of lava oceans, usually under 1-2 blocks of lava, but give off Nether Portal particles so you can locate them. To mine them out, you would have to block the flow of lava within a certain area and start mining with a Diamond Pickaxe. It will drop between 1-2 blocks of Obsidian when mined.
    -Diamond Cubes: If you're trying to get the perfect weapon, or need to make a pickaxe to mine out Obsidian, then you should search for Diamond Cubes that spawn close to Bedrock on the top and bottom of The Nether. White particles are released from it, and if you stand close to the block for too long they start to gather up and push you away. If you don't let the white particles calm down, they can slam you against a wall and give you fall damage. To mine this, you need an Iron Pickaxe or stronger, and it will drop between 1-2 diamonds.
    -Redstone Cubes: You're planning on making a giant, complex Redstone machine in The Nether for whatever reason, and you discover you're one Redstone Dust short of making it work. These will spawn fairly commonly just above the surface of Netherrack plains, and as you begin to mine it it seems to be pretty easy... That is, until you give it a couple more swings of your pickaxe and it starts spitting out sparks around you; setting fire to the Netherrack within a 3-block radius or so. A secure pit of a non-flammable block should safe enough for you to mine it out, dropping 2-3 Redstone Dust.

    Feel free to leave comments and constructive criticism; I did check around for something like this but I didn't find anything.

    This is the first texture pack I've used, and I am impressed. It seems like a lot of texture packs out there are either super-realistic and laggy or boringly basic and simple, but nothing in between. The Isabella texture pack greatly improves on the original textures, but it doesn't move too far away from the original Minecraft feel. The only thing that I don't really like is that it gives the world a paler, depressing feel that actually distracts me from the actual gameplay; I'd very much prefer playing Minecraft with a light blue sky and bright green grass. Aside from that, this is still a really amazing texture pack.
