    Might be a typo in there.


    Or it could be a hint that lightning will be able to do some new secret thing.

    posted a message on Mod Spotlight - Redstone Paste Mod
    My god. I mess with red-stone all the time I love and hate the stuff at the same time. This mod sounds like it fixes all but one problem I have ever had with red stone. Water proofing red-stone, but doing that that sounds like it would make it too easy and less fun. I cant wait for the mod API so I can get this running safely on my server.

    As mentioned previously, sort of. Redstone ore now drops redstone, but it cannot be used as a wire, only as a crafting material.


    I see darn. Well thank you for replying.

    this sucks so bad! you are taking away the chance for people that have worked so hard to get live streams and YouTube channels popular and get views and throwing it to the 10yr old with 30,000 Facebook friends. how can i compete with 10 views an episode with lil billy who get all his friends to watch his crap! the next step will be a "straight to YouTube" button and then LPs will go to crap.


    From what I understand this is mostly for live streaming and all they did was make it simpler to do. I'm very sure Mojang is not making it uploading to Youtube anymore difficult than it was before.

    Two things:

    1. Fix the villagers' AI FCOL.
    2. Sea monsters would be cool.


    Rare sea monsters (Its a real pain when you are just starting and the water is not safe)
    fish mob
    Mobs should be able to pick up dropped items (Sheep pick up and eat wheat, wild wolfs should take drooped meat)

    Am I the only one to notice..
    The last two snapshots have had the randome 2 x 2 water source?
    not to mention the
    13W43A Snapshot
    Had a random quote saying "


    Just some speculation here..though I see something in this..
    not to mention the red..golum thing in the various snapshot photos.


    Nice catch I didn't notice that.
    The reasonable and practical side of me is saying "that's probably just because of the fishing and boat updates',

    The child inside me is screaming "THERE ARE MORE SECRETS IN THIS UPDATE, WE ARE GETTING TIME PORTALS FOR A PREHISTORIC NETHER TYPE OF WORLD WITH DINOSAURS AND RED DRAGONS. I'M GOING TO RIDE A TERIDACTIAL". child inside doesn't know how to spell pterodactyl.

    I feel like I'm talking too much on this forum so I'm going to walk away now, at least for today.

    The thing is though, the game is running *really* badly in some cases even for those with absolute monster PCs. Mine is one of those, and the game REFUSES to even go beyond a render distance of 8, for no apparent reason. Either that or it's not loading chunks beyond a distance of 8; it's very hard to tell what the problem is. This is ONLY in the 1.7 stuffs, too. 1.6.4 works just fine, as the distance is concerned.

    And this machine of mine is an ultra-expensive gaming rig; it'll run anything at max settings no matter what, PERIOD. And it'll run them smoothly.

    Minecraft though.... as much as I love it, it seriously sometimes feels like it's not so much buggy, but is in fact just one giant bug. It's the only thing on this machine that's actually capable of getting wonky in terms of how it's running, despite the fact that it's not going even CLOSE to as far as other games in the technical side of things. And as is always the case with Mojang, things like this do not get fixed fast, if at all. They're not very good at bug-stomping, never were.

    Normally I like to use the snapshots and all, but not this time. First time ever, I've entirely stopped with them, and likely wont go anywhere within a thousand miles of 1.7 until Optifine is updated, as likely that's going to be the ONLY way to fix this for a very long time.


    If you are running vanilla MC and having problems on atleast decent hardware it is understandable to be upset, I can agree with you there. What's not understandable is when someone gets upset at mojang for problems they experience after loading a mod that is not even made by mojang to begin with. Some mods are poorly coded or even need way more resources then the average user can spare. As of right now it's up to the user to find those things out not mojang.

    You prob already know this but even if you have good hardware its a bad idea to max out the FPS unless you don't care about your render distance. And if you really do have a awesome PC try increasing the amount of ram MC can use in the Profile Editor a try. I use "JVM Arguments: -Xmx10G -Xms10G" since I have 16GB and 6GB is already over kill for all for all my back ground apps.

    Awh, man. Seriously? Your map is the only one I use, because of the teleport-to-waypoints feature. Le sad.


    If I understand you correctly I think you can already do that in vanilla. Just use the command (/tp @p x y z) in command-block to teleport to a set location, It's awesome, especially for when the inside of a building needs to be larger then the outside (Not a doctor who reference)

    Well If I get the chance to meet Jeb, all I will say to him is "Minecarts... Think about the Minecarts..."


    Also ask him when we can expect to get Spawners in (non modded) creative that can Spawn more than just pigs.

    Well lets see, where to start. Now keep in mind I am taking all this in as a server owner of a modded server and a vanilla server owner. Amplified: well MC runs terribly right now so lets make a mode that requires a super-computer! Pretty bad when your PC gets better FPS in BF3 than it does a voxel based game. Less ocean: hardly ever found any anyway. New wood colors,stained glass,and new flowers!: Seriously? New flowers? How about a quarry? stained glass and new wood types, totally not a ripoff of BOP and galacticraft or anything. Fishing: really just really............ Try adding some actual features........ Anybody remember the days of when they added things like pistons? Yea well now they add flowers and wood colors. Maps less lag: meaning the same or more right? last time I heard that it got worse. Server-wide achievements: words can't even........ I really don't care about those and I know no one who actually does. So now the servers get to be spammed with them! Resource packs: for the love of god. just do the "plugin api" already. you know the one thats been promised since 1.0? that a lighting rewrite so the game might actually run well without a 150$ dedicated card and a 4 core cpu,8gb ram. Built in shaders: No. not just no but HELL NO. I mean you need a 250$ video card, a monster cpu and at least 8gb of ram to run the game with 10 mods............ gg mojang. Lets make it run worse now! I am looking forward to the rewrote sound and networking because they were terrible.


    You complain so much and you don't even have all the facts.
    MC is not a voxcel game.
    It's not Mojangs fault if you tell your software to do more than your hardware can handle, If MC is not running properly after you install mods It's your fault for installing more mods than your PC can handle.
    New wood was added because they added new trees for the new biomes. That is clearly the right choice since otherwise we would be getting oak wood from savanna trees.
    You commend pistons but then immediately bash on mojang for implementing some features that another mod already has. Pistons had a mod before Mojang added their own version and that mod was better in some ways. So you just contradicted yourself.
    I'm not going to waste more of my time correcting you. Next time before you complain please take a second to think and research at least a little.

    Still annoyed that they aren't releasing this at Minecon. I mean, what's the main theme going to be? Every one before this has had some form of update related to it (More or less). Until then I'll keep wishing for cart linking/less pointless powered carts....


    I'm actually happy about that. Instead of them talking about what update they have already done or are currently working on they can talk about what they are going to do next. Hell maybe they will announce the official mod API release date or finally give us the ability to animate paintings.

    can anyone help me? put a download link to the snapshot i try to update it says "An update to your launcher is available and is required to play 1.7. Please restart your launcher." so i do and it still says "An update to your launcher is available and is required to play 1.7. Please restart your launcher."


    I think you might have the very old launcher try going here: https://minecraft.net/download and download the updated exe file. If that doesn't work try going to your .minecraft directory and deleting everything except your saved worlds and resource packs.

    I lower the fps only. everything else I leave as the default settings. So that is the answer 60fps, and default the other settings! I don't care for mods, the vanilla MC is cool enough anyhoo! :D


    Yeah 60 FPS is the sweet spot, most people can't even tell the difference if it's set any higher than 60 FPS, most standard (Non-3D enabled) PC monitors can't even display more than 60 FPS anyway.

    I have a £380 laptop which is 3 years old and have no slowdown issues at all. Only 3GB of ram with an AMD Vision chip. Chunks load in quite fast and the frame rate never drops below 60fps.
    I don't understand how so many others have these problems. Unless its the regional servers that have the problems.


    I'm somewhat knowledgeable about computers but not a expert. I think many of the people with MC problems just throw the setting to max, use HD texture packs and/or use mods without really paying attention to what their pc can handle. If you have 2 gb of free ram, at least a integrated graphics processor and are not maxing out the FPS MC should run fine on most PCs.
