    ... mods can really liven up the game! ^_^ ...
    Agreed. There are even mods that add new dimensions, such as the Aether. LOTS of replayability can be found with mods.


    Also, the modding community for Minecraft is so large that you really can't say it isn't just another part of the game. I know there are people out there that are puritans and only like vanilla, but I honestly have a lot of fun with mods and would recommend them to anyone who has yet to have a taste.

    posted a message on Microsoft/Mojang Deal Confirmed.
    The majority of people freaking out about this just need to chill. If Microsoft were to ruin Minecraft, they would essentially make millions of people despise them. Given lots of people already hate Microsoft for various reasons, but I don't see this deal as anything other than an attempt to increase their following.

    And with regards to the amount of new players that this will bring to the game, that already happened a couple years ago. The 12 year olds that joined then are now 14. You see new players as a negative, when in reality they are what help games grow. More money flow will inevitably mean more willingness from Microsoft to pour money into bettering the game.

    posted a message on New difficulties
    I'm more of a proponent of Super Hostile Mode ;)

    For those who don't know what that is, it was a part of last year's April Fools hoax. (see here, or the spoiler)


    "Super Hostile Mode" is an occasional event (every 2-5 minutes on Purple), consisting of a shower of lightning bolts around the player (and usually striking the player at least once), while spawning a large number of powerful monsters in the area and applying the Blindness status to the player. These spawns include not only heavily armed and armored zombies and skeletons, and multiple charged creepers, but even the occasional Blaze and other unexpected monsters. All of these are apparently triggered by "punching wood" or crafting anything. Naturally, this is one of the first things a survival player will need to do...

    Now to actually talk about your suggestion. Another difficulty may be nice, as it could provide more replayability. However, I think allowing mobs to spawn literally on the same block as you might be a bit of a stretch. Mostly I don't like the idea that my survival is dependent on chance instead of skill ;).

    Regarding the Master difficulty, what about a difficulty/setting that simply prevents hostile mobs from burning in sunlight?

    Also, as VampArcher said, mobs that never despawn would be very taxing on your computer. The main reason a mob will despawn is if you move too far away from it. If they never despawned, you would essentially have every mob you ever run past loaded at the same time.

    I think your next step should be to sketch out what you want included in each gamemode, specifically. :)

    Quote from TheqoreeZ»

    Not supporting because you think the debs should work on something else is not a valid reason. If you think they should work on something else...
    Make your own damned suggestion.

    Okay, you're right. I realize now that I shouldn't have used that as my main critique.

    However, what I said about balancing still stands. Adding something like guns to a game balanced with swords and bows, at least the gun the OP suggested, would be game breaking.

    Quoted from Please read this before making a suggestion
    Whether you want to fathom this or not, your own opinion is the weakest piece of support on your own suggestion, because if you posted your suggestion to begin with, we already know you actually want it.

    No one can blame you having opinions, but they won't take you the lengths you want in terms of having others like your suggestion. You thinking that your idea "would be a really cool thing to add" won't magically make others support your ideas. If you really want to finger people's brains and have them support your ideas, you gotta lay down some cold hard facts on why anyone else should be on board with your idea.

    I'VE USED PLENTY of mods before! But I just think it would be cool to have guns in-game vanilla, that's my opinion, Deal with It! :steve_csi:

    I'm giving you my opinion as well m8, and I already said I'm not opposed to guns. Nice job defending your suggestion though... lol

    posted a message on What if there were guns in Minecraft?

    Yeah, but it could be quite a while before that "modding API" that you speak of comes out, so until then, they should KEEP adding vanilla content, and imagine sniping a creeper with a flaming bullet! (Might add to OP that flaming bullets explode creepers) The satisfaction of blowing up your friends base with a creeper flame bullet combo!
    Edited OP so flaming bullets cause creepers to explode!


    Do a little research. The Modding/Plugin API is a planned update that will make it easy to download/install mods. My point was, spending time coding guns takes away from time spent coding more important things. Things, again, that they already have said they are going to implement. This would include primarily vanilla content, the new API is just another feature they have been teasing about for years.

    On top of that, adding a new weapon always requires a lot of balance to make sure they fit in the game. Especially a gun that you're saying will be more powerful than a bow. Bows are already able to do a good amount of damage, so without majorly changing previous content (like for example nerfing bows) they would most likely need to add another tier of armor, or something to that extent.

    Why not just keep guns as mods/plugins? If you think mods are too complicated to install, you've never used one before.

    posted a message on What if there were guns in Minecraft?
    Here's my opinion, coming from someone who has been playing Minecraft since about Beta 1.7 or so.

    Minecraft is a game focused heavily on player created content (i.e. mods). Changes to the game at this point should NOT be adding more needless content. When I see Mojang releasing updates that consist just of bug fixes and a couple new blocks or mobs, it really gets under my skin. They have promised many things, most notably the Modding (Plugin) API, and have yet to follow through. I'm sure many people can agree with me when I say that the last thing the game needs right now is for the development team to focus on adding insignificant bits of content. Rather, they should be working to implement features that legitimately improve the game.

    That being said I'm not opposed to guns in Minecraft. I've played on servers that use gun plugins and had a good time. But that is how they should stay - as plugins. Adding something like a new weapon to vanilla Minecraft would probably take tons of work and balancing that ultimately is just a big waste of time. Also, with a Modding API on the way at some point, there will essentially be no need for more vanilla content. Aside from bug fixes and minor changes, the game will be self-sustained via mods.

    It more than likely has to do with your graphics card/GPU. Buying a new one for a laptop would probably not be the easiest thing in the world if you don't have experience doing it, but it can be done.

    posted a message on Mojang Announcement: EULA, and Servers
    You all are overthinking this way too much. They're updating their EULA so they have the legal power to take down the bigger violators of the agreement. Game companies are forced to do this so they can't get torn apart by lawsuits. If they seriously wanted to wipe out all servers that violate the EULA, they could. However, it isn't worth their time, money and man-power to do so.

    posted a message on [SMP]Lighting fixtures for modern city
    I've been looking around for something like this, and I just can't seem to find anything catered to my needs (if you know of any mods like this request, please link me!)

    Anyway, what I mean by lighting fixtures is adding in lamps and lights that are place-able. I'm creating a modern apocalyptic city at the moment on my server, and I'm finding torches to not be what I really want.

    Here's my request:
    • A bright ceiling light that is bright enough to light up an entire room
    • Wall lamps/lights that have a similar brightness level to torches, but have a modern look to them
    • If possible, versions of both that are flickering
    • A light switch that can be wirelessly linked to lights (by some sort of commandI) that allows the lights to be turned on and off
    Thanks for reading! I hope there's someone out there that wants to help.
