    you said shaft

    but yes, you can just use a flash drive, unless you have installed mods that might break your save if you don't have them.

    posted a message on Should Notch Convert Minecraft to another Coding Language?
    Quote from archori »
    Honestly, I don't really care what notch does, but I want to get a higher frame rate with the next update. To all of you with gaming pcs, NEWSFLASH: NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD A GAMING PC! I'm running minecraft on my laptop. My laptop is less than a year old. In order to get a playable framerate (assuming that you have an unplayable framerate when a creeper can cross an entire chunk in between frames) I need to play with fast graphics, smooth lighting off, and render at short, as well as setting Java's priority to high. Now then, with render at short or tiny YOU CANNOT SEE THE SUN OR THE MOON. Before you say "craft a clock" consider that it can take a long time to find gold and redstone. Another note here is that task manager is extremely stupid. Every time I close and reopen minecraft, I have to set Java's priority to high again.

    We have a few possibilities here.
      A) I (and undoubtedly others) continue as I am doing. It slowly gets more and more aggravating to die because without warning it is night and I am in the middle of nowhere with out adequate protection. Having to constantly deal with task manager.
      :cool.gif: I try setting Java's priority to realtime. I hope to god that my laptop doesn't melt, and that maybe I can get the render distance to normal. Still have to deal with task manager.
      C) I buy a new gaming laptop. I am now broke, and maybe I will be able to sell my laptop on ebay for a tenth of what it cost.
      D) Notch spends some of his time working on making minecraft run faster.
      E) Notch pays someone else to make minecraft run faster.

    Now then, If you were in my shoes, what would you prefer? Something from the first three, or the last two?


    I don't think you understand what you are talking about. Minecraft is probably one of the most system intensive games ever. To quote someone who knows what they are talking about,

    Quote from Stucuk »
    A Simple example is a wall, in a modern game that wall would just have 6 surfaces. In Minecraft the wall would have 6 Multiplied by the number of Cubes in that wall. So with a 256x256 meter wall, in Minecraft you would have 131072 Surfaces(not including the hidden ones where the cubes touch)


    Think for a second, your probably thinking, OMG MY SYTSEM HAZ TO RENDR [email protected]!

    You can NOT just hire some people and tell them to do something and expect the problem to be fixed. More so to the point, there are optimization issues, but optimizing Minecraft isn't just going to make the game extremely faster, to the point where people are like OMG I HAZ PENTIUM 3 AND 499 FPS IN MINECRAFT ON PHAR WITH FANSY GRAFICS AND SMOOT LIGHNTNING.

    It shouldn't. notch does such a bad job at coding it in java, imagine what he would do in C++...He can't handle that.Only pro's do.


    I think i have heard this phrase somewhere before..
    If you don't like wolves Notch then you don't have to tame them play the game.

    I had some of my valuables on me, and I put a saddle on a pig. The pig proceeded to jump off the mountain.

    typicalspoon that's a really great building! It has a very clear and consistent theme to it, and it is evident that a lot of careful, critical thinking went into its construction. :Diamond: It seems to be predominantly lit by sunlight during the day, so I'd love to see some night time pictures to compare.


    Thanks! Night shots comin' right up:
    -snip-
    I built torches into the columns and posts for the most part, set up to light both the inside and the outside

    -snip-
    -snip-
    the four central fence-post columns are separated by glass-torch-glass sandwich on each floor/ceiling split, so sunglight actually goes all the way to the sub-basement this way.
    -snip-
    the grand staircase has some sunlight-spotlight treatment in the day, too...
    -snip-
    you can see from this angle that a lot of the (many!) skylights are also torch wells
