May 28, 2012Posted in: Recent Updates and SnapshotsQuote from LavaAndDiamond. . . you can't have something be minable and the basis of a economy at the same time.
That doesn't make sense. Gold and silver are mineable (in reality) and have served as currencies in numerous cultures. Furthermore, we can already trade renewable resources for emeralds, so allowing emeralds to be mined makes them no more renewable than they already are.

May 22, 2012I'm excited for it. The gravel texture was always one of my least favorites, and I never got around to making a better one for my personal texture pack. The new one looks much more gravel-like. It looks like you can even see the flint inside now!Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots
May 13, 2012Hydrogen256 posted a message on How many people do and don't approve of the upcoming updates?I am in favor of both. Though I am sad that click mining is no longer in SSP and that attacking enemies looks "laggy" like in SMP. If they fix the code so that everything runs as smoothly as SSP used to, I'll be totally happy with the changes.Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots

A little of all of those! Right now I'm building a city and preparing to fight the Ender Dragon. Once I've defeated the dragon, I'll focus more on building. Once the glorious city of Naj-rad is complete, I will spend the rest of my days battling the demons of Minecraftia and filling my warehouse with treasure!
Jan 21, 2012The only easy fix for this would be for there to be fewer leaves in jungle biomes. Which would sort of defeat the idea of a jungle.Posted in: 1.1 Update Discussion
Maybe Jeb will look into optimizing leaf rendering, but I have a feeling that's a difficult task.

the transition between whatever gen ur current world has to 1.2 is gonna look just as bad as if u mcedit ur stuff into a 1.2 world
Yeah, I know, but I could terraform it to look decent. The main difficulty of using MCedit for me would be moving my underground structures. Also, I'm not sure how the terrain generation has changed for the area immediately around my city. If it has changed, that could create even more chunk discontinuities. I suppose I could copy my entire world into a new world...
Anyway, I'm hoping Jeb is able to find a way to integrate jungle biome generation into existing worlds. If he can't, it might be less work to copy a jungle from a new world into my old world, honestly.
I presume you were mainly talking to the OP, but in response to the above, of course our current worlds aren't "broken". But I definitely would have been disappointed if a jungle/rain forest biome were never added. You may recall that there used to be rain forest biomes, which were removed. I have since been hoping for a replacement because I thought they were cool.

Remember the part where Notch said to NEVER be attached to your world?
Remember when he said this quite a while ago?
Notch said that during beta (or maybe alpha, I don't remember). Minecraft is now a released game. It's no longer acceptable to suggest that we should just not get attached to our worlds. I don't want my worlds held hostage by Minecraft's constantly changing mechanics and terrain. It's really annoying, and it discourages me from actually investing my creativity and efforts to make something cool in my world since I know there's a chance I'll lose it or be significantly inconvenienced if I don't want to lose it.

Jeb has made the new biome NOT SPAWN in OLDER WORLDS,
meaning no chunk areas.Every heard of MCEDIT,or SPC?
Are you sure about that? I don't see how he could have arranged that. And I hope it's not true anyway because I'd like to be able to find jungle biomes in new chunks of my current world.

nothing is forever. Just embrace the changes. I kind of enjoy starting from scratch. How long has it been since an iron vein excited you?
I'm trying to build a freaking awesome city. I'm not going to restart every time a minor addition is made to Minecraft's terrain generator. And I'm not down with MCediting my world into a new one. I build around the natural terrain, and I have many underground structures, so it would be more trouble than it's worth to transplant my entire city and mining system into a new world.
While the OP is overreacting to a hilarious degree, (s)he has a point. I'm not pleased that the terrain generation is receiving changes this soon after release. I pretty much stopped playing Minecraft for months because I wanted to start over on release day, so that I would know that my world would contain all the world features until the first expansion (which should have been many months off). Now, less than three months into the release version of Minecraft we've got changes to the world that put us in an awkward position, deciding whether to start over, transplant our worlds using 3rd party software, or miss out on new features.
That being said, I can't complain too much when awesome new content is added, and jungles do seem to have a lot of potential. I just wish that Mojang had either pushed back the release date or gotten this stuff done earlier. Meh.
