    Except that the games you mentioned, whether I like them or not, admittedly have actual content. Minecraft has a pathetic array of blocks which are used to forge arbitrarily better tools (wood>stone>iron>diamond, gold is unique, but useless to me) to mine more. The sole appeal of the game is artwork. However there are much better mediums to build artwork in, and at least in dwarf fortress you can have your projects utilized by virtual citizens with needs and demands.
    What minecraft lacks is true function. Your structures serve no purpose, combat is monotonous and boring, and once you have diamond there is no more satisfaction available except by gathering more resources to build more stuff. he cycle has repeated for me to the point where I honestly can't think of anything I can't do either on paper or in Dwarf Fortress, a game where your hard work pays off and functions, as useless as the perceived function may be (such as a giant dwarf in which your dwarves live inside of, which drinks magma from a giant mug. You'd have to utilize pumps and such to make it work, whereas in minecraft you build it from the ground up and leave it at that.).

    Think about it. In minecraft, you break blocks, you click on enemies to kill them, and you click to place blocks. That's the gist of it. how does a game so deprived of content and depth deserve so much praise? All these people are mindlessly voting for mojang without actually thinking about it. It's ridiculous!

    What's the point of Mass Effect 2? You just run around shooting things and blowing things up. That's the gist of it. How does a game so deprived of sandbox play deserve so much praise?


    I haven't played Mass Effect 2. That is not the question, I am simply asking how Mojang deserves this. you are simply dodging the question.

    Also, blowing stuff up according to plot is actually pretty fun. :smile.gif: It gives you satisfaction when you destroy an enemy that presents a significant challenge. When you just run around placing blocks, I don't know about you but to me that lost its satisfaction a while ago.

    I love alien swarm. It's actually quite fun, and has cost me more good grades than minecraft has.

    I'd love advanced metallurgy and a material system. If I had to choose, it would be materials.

    For example, there is one type of pot item, a "Pot."
    But there are multiple materials it can be made of. So it can be a "steel Pot" or a "clay Pot."
    I think a DF style approach would make the game much simpler to expand on.

    There's not much we can do. If your game is broken delete some mods and try again. Don't complain that we are not magical computer wizards because frankly, we aren't.

    Are you running windows 7?
    I don't know why but microsoft did something, I assume involving permissions, that makes minecraft mods not work for some people. CnC3 maps also don't work for me.
    My solution is to run it on linux. :smile.gif:

    There's no much of a point in mailing them though. Maybe lower the cost to two blocks?
    Still, it's a good idea. Smaller tools for when you need a quick way to escape a cave.

    I would love an auto-chest. It would make mob/cactus farming easier.

    nothing wrong with the application, just you.


    That was a totally useful comment.

    You have to select the area you want to replace in MCEdit, then replace.

    Other than that I don't know what to tell you.

    posted a message on DF Cavern Generator
    I'm looking for a map generator that generates caverns similar to those in dwarf fortress. Basically, they are a series of large open spaces connected by standard caves. Oftentimes they have water and mud and all sorts of plants growing in them, including mushroom tree things.

    Golden tunnels is good but it's not what I'm looking for.
