    If you want to make it downloadable, no one is stopping you. ^_^

    I watched a P.T. Silent Hills playthrough on youtube... very scarey. I hope that Silent Hills ends up being the scariest game ever made.



    p.s. Someone made a minecraft map for Alien Isolation and it was very good. It was close to the original in many ways.

    posted a message on What's your favorite minecraft puzzles (non-parkour related)?
    I've played through tons of puzzle maps recently. Some puzzles are easy to describe

    -Lights Out
    -Maze
    -Find the button
    -Slide a block across ice and into a hole
    -Switch the rails to get a minecart someplace
    -Push a gravel/sand block somewhere using a bunch of pistons
    -Press the button / avoid the button to get further along
    -Break the block / move the block to get further along


    Are there any specific puzzles you remember enjoying a lot?

    no, but I can't download your map because there's no way I'm gonna jump through hoops to get dropbox working... ie. there are alternatives that would have made getting that file easier

    posted a message on NEED MINECRAFT ADVENTURE MAP STORY IDEAS(NEED BUILDERS!)
    Wow, previous post TL:DR (might of been good).

    Ideas off the top of my head:

    1. You are a caveman trapped in ice. One day some of the ice melts and you are set free, sort of. You start at the bottom of an ice cave or glacier ravine with sunlight coming from a hole high above you (in fact you can edit beacon textures to look like a shaft of transparent sunlight). Basically you have to escape.... additional story wouldn't be too difficult to come up with (maybe you find your dog trapped in ice and you can rescue him etc....)

    2. Evil fun house escape. Teleporting command blocks can be an useful tool here for trick rooms and halls. There could be a minecart ride where you have to jump into other minecarts on different tracks because some tracks lead to instant death.

    3. A Bug's Life, Antz, or the outdoor scene from Honey I Shrunk The Kids type of map. There's Literally a million stories that you could invent to go along with those.

    4. Heh, a map that can exactly recreate the graphing paper grid layout of old school dungeon crawlers like Lands of Lore/Ultimata Underworld. But also somehow recreates other aspects/puzzles of those games.

    The issue of this thread isn't to point fingers but to brainstorm new ways to eliminate hacked clients from getting on servers.

    BouncingBall, maybe you overestimate the size of an update that would be like downloading a clean client every time someone connects to a participating server. Certain files might be able to be left alone like pictures and music. (I'm not sure of myself on this point because I'm not familiar with what a clean client update would entail - I'm just brainstorming).

    As far as this idea goes, maybe there is still a way for hackers to avoid the update, but maybe not, what do I know? Maybe Mojang could program a way so that hackers would be forced to do the update no matter what. It might not be easily programmable but unless we are really gifted programmers then who of us can really say it's impossible? In brainstorm mode I can hope this extra protection is possible for participating servers :3

    Quote from BouncingBall

    There isn't really a definitive way to stop all hackers.

    Also, quite frankly, "hackers" aren't of Mojang's concern (Assuming by "hacker" you mean people that do things like use a force field and fly around). Mojang doesn't meddle in private server affairs, and they wont make an exception by trying to keep "hackers" out of servers. If anything, hacking is exploiting Bukkit (among other backbone services like that), not Mojang's services.

    Hacking is a concern to any company that wishes their customers have an enjoyable online experience. The company might not have or know a way to prevent hacked clients from joining servers but if they care about their customers then hackers are a concern. Also, this isn't just a problem on private servers; it's a problem on ALL servers so I don't know why you bother making a distinction.


    That isn't at all practical. You'd lose far more players by forcing an update every time one joins a server than you would having "hackers" exist in the first place. You'd be "solving" a problem by creating 10 more.

    A lot of people might prefer an quick update than dealing with hackers. If you take enough hits by hackers, months later it's like "why do I even bother playing minecraft?". This is the only online game I've ever played with such an abundance of hackers. I've never found myself wanting to quit another online game because of hackers. Just minecraft.

    Good. People mentioned that hackers are unstoppable and how there'll always be a way for them to get in.

    Now that those viewpoints have been established, hopefully people won't start repeating each other.

    Yes, experience shows that hacked clients have been unstoppable. But this doesn't bare repeating because the main focus of this thread is on theoretical ways to stop hacked clients. This thread isn't just about acknowledging that hackers are a force to be reckoned with. Believe me, I know it all to well. I will probably quit multiplayer survival/factions because hackers have sucked all the fun out of a once truly enjoyable game.

    (As far as optifine goes, Mojang should integrate it's best features into the regular client. Then we wouldn't need the "hacked" optifine client.)

    Useful anti-cheat mods/plugins (like NC+) can automatically kick someone for flying but anti-cheats aren't as helpful with other things such as when someone uses _______finder on a hacked client.

    Obviously dedicated servers with anti-cheat mods/plugins are your best bet when it comes to hacker protection. But even dedicated people can't monitor hackers 24/7. Also hackers always find new ways past continually updating anti-cheats.

    It sure seems impossible to stop hacked clients all together. But what if there was a glimmer of hope? What form might it take?

    Help me brainstorm ways that mod makers / server hosters / or even Mojang themself can help eliminate pesky hacked clients from ever getting on servers.

    --------

    My idea (which I haven't a flippin clue on whether it's good or not) is to have servers that force users to redownload official "clean" client everytime you click 'join server'.... This is just a rough idea. I don't claim to be a programmer or anything but maybe my idea is on the right track.

    posted a message on SkydoesMinecraft Fan Topic
    When I search YouTube for minecraft videos I have to manually filter out all sky videos by adding " -skydoesminecraft " to all my searches. The simple reason is because sky's screaming is screeching pain to my ears. It's like 20db's louder than any other audio in his videos. And he screams like every other second.
