    posted a message on 1.23 update crashes PS3 while saving highly time-invested map

    I have saved a backup that is about two months old: a lot of 'work' to lose.


    I wonder if there are measures that could be taken, such as:


    Destroying beds because they affect spawn.

    Destoying offline players' golems or tamed animals because of lost assocciation?

    Destroying doors that may define phantom villages.

    Getting rid of too many stored items (Are there limits?).


    I wish Mojang/4J would be more proactive in letting us know what may be causing the frozen save screen or other issues, what might relieve the issue and when or if the issues might be fixed.


    I sure hope they properly address corrupt save data, maybe by writing salvageable data over a new map with place holder blocks for those that can't be restored. A lot of cumulative effort has gone into a lot of people's maps. I'm sure it would be easy for them to write off others invested time, but it would be totally wrong.

    posted a message on 1.23 update crashes PS3 while saving highly time-invested map

    Since about update 1.19 saves frequently crash PS3 requiring hard reset. Occassionally game freezes between saves while just playing. Since 1.22 the map I and other family have spent much time on now freezes every time it attempts a save. Sony tells me this is a Minecraft issue. 1.23 does not help.


    This is listed as an open issue (how insouciant can they be?) at bugs.mojang. How can tech support be otherwise contacted? (no Twitter or Facebook) At this point they have ruined something people have spent a lot of time building. They might even be damaging my PS3/other data?


    I can only wonder about the amount of frustration and wasted time in the aggregate this situation has caused.


    Please fix this.

    PS3 v 1.22 Game/PS3 now crashes at every save on my favorite and most extensive map. More broken software. How did Sony approve this mess?


    It started crashing after 1.19 if I harvested or maybe deposited items in chests in certain chunks? But, at least then it would soft restart.


    Now, no matter what I do, the first save hard freezes requiring the off button to be pressed on the front right of the console. Why?


    People taking money for broken software that only causes frustration and wastes time are bums.


    This Curse editor also has problems: often experiencing long pauses between keystrokes.

    Anyone else having trouble taming ocelots? I feed them fish, but I only get love mode hearts. Are they not tamable in creative?


    Also having some lag in jungles. Latest update didn't fix it. Hope it'll be patched soon. :(



    After ocelots display the love hearts try switching away from holding a fish. They should then be receptive to following or sittng commands. It's a simple thing but it took me a while to realize it.

    posted a message on Crashing, Unplayable after 1.19, 1.20

    Auto-saves still crashing, restarting PS3 on longstanding primary map. Even manual saves after < 5 min cause a freeze.


    This started occurring a good bit before 1.18 (version uncertain). I don't recall it at all in 1.18, but, after a short while, it became

    terrible in 1.19 and persists in 1.20 from the start.


    New download did not help.


    Sony support reviewed my case, said it wasn't my PS3 and to contact 4J (Mojang?) How does one even get support from 4J?


    Can no longer progress on map worked on for over one year along with other family players.


    Just received Just Passing Time trophy (33 hr play) when this map alone probably has at least ten times that amount.


    Are they looking at the bugs?

    Netherack fence (not stone fence) is now CONNECTING to wood fence (not stone fence). This will break things.

    posted a message on Is it possible to get a custom spawn point without modding or editing the save?

    Placing and sleeping in a bed sets the spawn to that bed for that player. New players will start at the original spwan the first time. When they sleep in a bed, their spawn resets.

    So many saves freezing. So much lost time. Led into a trap of a 'neat' game with so much garbage code lurking around the corner. Do you think they care at all? :(

    I hope the reporting location change isn't intended to dilute the appearance of all the bugs.


    I lose half my time now (at least) on saves that freeze, never completing. Reporting a bug once only, at Mojang's web site (where they seem to admonish if it's already been reported, and the search engine for prior reports is marginally helpful), conceals the breadth of the bugs across the user base and censors truth (prevalence) conveyed by users.


    I saw the Mojang Documentary on FusionTV where Notch said that at some point you have to stop thinking about it and start doing. Well, engage some foresight and think about some error trapping so your user base doesn't end up frustrated wasting time.


    Duplication glitchers are justified when the 'game' is cheating them every time it fails.


    I do think this is a great game. The code is obviously a bit sloppy though. All that money too. :unsure:

    Another: when walking on chests motion is severly retarded if the focus (white crosshair) is on any chest. Direct focus away from a chest and movement becomes normal again. Sometimes normal motion returns only after a long struggle to get off a chest.


    (don't LOOK at the bugs?) The chests have bugs. Don't look at them!

    PS3 v1.15 (Peaceful, Survival)


    Here's another: when using a bed the sleep animation places me under the bed instead of on top sometimes (~30%-50%).


    I wonder if beds can be a source of problems because their use establishes spawn locations. (saves?)

    PS3 v1.15 (Peaceful, Survival)


    At the "Preparing to Autosave Level, Preparing Chunks..." screen, with the progress bar at varying states of completion, my saves frequently freeze losing my last half hour of effort. The info box below the progress bar continues to update and the background scene scrolls.


    How can this be possible with all the money taken in by this software. I paid for this, but what I thought would be decent recreation turns to frequent frustration. What the hey! Please consider the sum total of frustration across the user base that may be being propogated.


    Please, just don't corrupt the save files in however you proceed. Write to temporary save files before destroying the existing save files and verify their integrity. I was lucky when corruptions were still occurring to have had a two week backup on a thumb drive, but I still lost about ten to twenty hours of time.

    PS3 1.14:


    Spawner rooms are generating without mossy cobblestone in the walls. Floors still have moss. Jungle temples by comparison are generating normally.
