May 9, 2011Dasaru posted a message on Dosnt anyone else feel than Branch mining ruins the purpose.I believe this to be a valid point actually. Unless you do a lot of spleunking, you'll most likely be branch/strip mining at the 10-16 layers below the world. I know I do that.Posted in: Survival Mode
May 9, 2011Dasaru posted a message on This is how people treat Notch for not releasing updatesPosted in: Survival ModeQuote from Mudkip74 »I agree, he tries his best, and still mainly receives complaints.
That's my problem. People act like Notch tries his 100% best. I don't believe it. Notch is good, but he is not nearly as good as he could be. And the people who buy Minecraft is a customer. The problem is that they bought the game as is which makes some people believe they are entitled to more. If Notch treats people as if they bought the game as is, it just feels like he doesn't care about his customers (which I'm sure most people who complain feel).
If you can tell by the way I worded that, I used to be someone who fully supports Notch. Now I'm just kinda like "meh". The game is worth 10-20 euros. That's a very good value and totally worth it. But if I could choose, I would rather have Notch charge 50 euros for Minecraft and make it a fully fledged professional game (which I don't think it will be).

Apr 20, 2011Dasaru posted a message on Why powered rails are quite excellent,despite people whiningWarning: Contains whining.Posted in: Survival Mode
I'll be honest. When I first heard of powered rails, I thought it would be a rail which would accelerate you normally. But then I realized that it requires redstone power to boost you. Logically that makes sense, but isn't that kinda dumb? Having to power your tracks is dumb in my opinion. I always thought of a powered track as being something similar to magnetic as it would pull you in a certain direction reguardless of being powered.
What also disappointed me is that they didn't really do much with the powered track theme. Sure, powered track and track detectors are pretty decent, but I've seen many mods that are simply strictly better. I know it's a little unfair for me to be saying that so soon (since they might add more in the future), but this update feels very underwhelming. I'm very suprised that some people are actually considering this over the glitch.
I saw a mod (forgot which) that you place down a powered track and it has a little arrow telling you the direction of the boost. If you move into the arrow, it acts like a brake - when you go with the arrow, it acts as a booster. Now that seems like the logical way to do things in my opinion.
I was also disappointed with the track detectors. I thought that it allowed you to add power to it and it would push you. Turns out there still isn't anything where you can press a button and it would accelerate you. So without using glitches, there really isn't a way to create a proper minecart station.
Ok, I'll also be blunt with this: Powered minetracks look kinda weird. If you think about looks, you have all this normal track, then you have a strip of gold/red track every few chunks - just looks weird. You guys have to admit, this is a very valid point I have here.
At this moment, Notch's implementation is a failure in my opinion. Not a complete failure, but it just doesn't do the job. It feels as though we just got powered minecarts for the first time (remember those?). You add coal and it moves forward and pushes stuff... Same situation here... just too underpowered to be worth building and using. Funny thing is that nobody talks about powered minecarts anymore... I'd expect someone to mention the fact that they're completely obsolete now with powered tracks...
Apr 16, 2011I could see a mod creating it, but for Minecraft, no.Posted in: Survival Mode
I would, however, love to see some super crossbow or something. It deals a lot more damage than the bow, but has a very slow fire rate. That would be tight :biggrin.gif:
Apr 12, 2011Did the OP just ask for a philosophical discussion about a sandbox game? And on these forums!?Posted in: Survival Mode
But seriously, this game is about experiencing a new fantasy world. And not just experience it, but experience it in the way you want to using the tools in the game. I guess this game is all about creativity and like an artform. What is the point of playing with Legos? Tinker Toys? Lincoln Logs?
