    posted a message on Minecraft Needs Platinum Ore
    First, to clear this up for you who don't know jack about ores (and diamonds):

    -Coal is black.
    -Iron is gray.
    -Gold is gold.
    -Diamonds are often clear, yes, but they can also be yellow, brown, green, purple, pink, orange, red, and, of course, blue.
    -Platinum is it's own friggen color! I don't know why everyone keeps calling it white, or gray, because there is in fact a color platinum, and it's the same color as actual platinum. If you want to see it, here's the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platinum_(color)

    Next, I'd like to say that, while platinum is, in fact very weak, so is iron in it's pure state. Also, dirt can't levitate, zombies aren't real, and water doesn't actually break falls, it breaks people who fall. If minecraft were really scientifically accurate, it'd suck big time. That isn't an excuse to color platinum purple, but keep it in mind when posting on someone's thread.


    Oh, right, my opinion. I don't like your idea, so no support.

    This would essentially involve swapping the data related to your inventory between worlds, so it wouldn't be terribly difficult.

    On the other hand, it's already being done: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=101512

    I am very disappointed in you. Notch puts trust in the human race by not using any anti-piracy software, and you can't spare $15?

    I've lost all faith in my species.

    Good idea, but I'll never forgive you if you don't make hurricanes instant kill for being out of shelter. Also, make tornadoes destroy exposed wood, wool, dirt, and glass, it'll really add to the game.

    It's also possible that you were on the wrong site. Try going to this link: http://www.minecraft.net/

    This is the real minecraft site. If this isn't where you were, you've been scammed. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you.

    posted a message on [Coming Soon] The Aether Collab - King, Kodaichi, Shockah!
    This has probably been said before, but it can never be said enough. Take your time! You aren't Mojang, you don't have to release this on time, "ready or not". Wait until you're happy with what you have, no matter how much your fans whine, because they'll thank you for it later.

    Also remember to have beta testers, because the more awesome it is, the more bugs it has. Therefore, you'll have giant mutant cockroach swarms eating the Aether bit by bit, and it'll help to have strength in numbers when it comes to squashing (which is to say, isolating the offending bits of code and correcting) them.

    So, in summary: Wait until you're happy with what you have, not until the fans are banging at your door. Have beta testers, because bugs can be tough and numerous on a project this big.


    Or completely ignore everything I've said, but since this is a post on an internet forum, that's pretty much a given.

    posted a message on Considering creating a server
    As far as I know, this is the wrong forum, but I'll answer anyway.

    I own a small dedicated server, with just 500MB of RAM and four players (all good friends of mine). It runs on an old desktop computer running linux. Now that that's over with, I answer your questions.

    If you are running it from a home PC, it doesn't cost any kind of upkeep (besides electricity and internet connection). I don't know the specifics, but I've heard that you can be hosted online, which would cost upkeep. No, it couldn't cause permanent damage to your computer.

    As for advice: don't expect a big server if you're running from your main PC. Depending on how much RAM you have, lag can be a serious issue if you're playing minecraft and running your server at the same time, especially with more than 5 players. If you have lots of RAM and don't play resource-hungry games, things may be okay, I've never had more than 4 people on my server, so I'm not a huge expert on lag.

    posted a message on Paint!
    Quote from Nazzer »
    I don't think this would be very easy to implement. Currently there's a single image from which all block textures are pulled. This image is limited in size, and so there is a limit to how many various block textures are available. Painting would require a lot more than that.



    Or, (and this idea is wayyy out there) paint could be an object in and of itself, covering the block beneath.


    Being serious, I think the recipes are a bad idea. Flower paint = good, explosive creeper entrails paint = bad.

    posted a message on Doomsday Device
    The reason people are saying yes is because it seems fun. The reason people are saying no is because it's too specialized and could only be used in certain circumstances.


    You all need to take a step back here and realize, this isn't a feature that should be used in Minecraft vanilla.

    This is a mod idea.

    posted a message on Papa's Other Stuff (Alchemy)
    I'm sorry, but I can't help it. I have to correct these absurd assumptions you made about alchemy.


    According to the alchemists, there were seven planetary metals (gold, silver, copper, iron, tin, mercury, and lead), the difference between them being their purity. Your notion of alchemy being about turning cheap materials into gold comes from the common goal of alchemists being turning the least pure metal (lead) into the most pure (gold). Under no circumstance would alchemy consist of turning dirt into gold. Ever.

    posted a message on Morality
    Slavery started when the Europeans saw,

    Slavery had existed almost since time immemorial. The racial aspect of it only arose somewhat recently and I'm pretty sure that it only showed up as a result of the Atlantic slave trade (not the other way around where the slave trade was because of these racial differences). Because slavery had been so common throughout the middle ages (and before that) slave trading was an economic endeavor. This doesn't make it any better, I just want to make sure people know the actual history of it.



    To clarify, I was talking about a particular instance of slavery in which a specific group of people enslaved a specific group of people, not slavery as a whole. You knew that, but insisted on taking me out of context and picking at a slight flaw in my phrasing rather than responding to my post as a whole.

    How mature of you.

    posted a message on Morality
    First of all, to the absolutist atheist who posted before: you rock. I find it absurd how few people are willing to admit that they are a series of chemical reactions. That said I personally believe that consciousness is the electrical activity within your brain.

    You've all been very good with elaborating the different standpoints on morality, now here's a new one: evolution. As pack animals we evolved our "moral code" as a defense against extinction. We all do whatever it takes to stay alive, but in most cases we do cringe at and fight against the concept of a fellow dying. From religion to racism, we do whatever we can to separate the "us" from the "them", to define who it is in our pack and who the outsiders are. This is morality at it's greatest and weakest, the pack mentality.

    Applying this to morality you can easily see what it truly is. Slavery started when the Europeans saw, well, anyone different from them, and decided that they were not on the same team, defining their "pack" as their fellow white people, and dehumanizing and enslaving those who were "other". Then, centuries later, a few people included the slaves in their "pack" and began railing against the idea of their "pack members" being slaves.

    Anyway that's my take on the origin of morality, those as for my own views I prescribe to whatever secures the best life for me and my pack.
