    posted a message on Digital Diamond: Minecraft Amazing "Wave Machine"
    We're shifting gears again with this latest Minecraft digital diamond. This time we're showcasing an impressive creation utilizing a Piston mod, the by G0ldenEye93.

    G0denEye93's brother assisted in the creation of the Wave Machine, and according to the Minecrafter it "took some time," meaning it was no easy task.

    The world is not currently available for download, as G0ldenEye93 notes that you need a "really good pc" to handle it. Once it's available, we'll update this post.

    The song used in the video is Blue Shift by lemaître.

    posted a message on Digital Diamond: Minecraft Timelapse Building: Episode 3 - City of Arches
    Today we're taking a closer look at a timelapse of a Minecraft creation. While the final result of what we build in the game is most impressive, it's always interesting to see it come to shape.

    leptir1 published the video on his YouTube channel, though the actual builders are Matt and Phil. The duo teamed up with a few friends to build an entire city in this particular timelapse. The creation of the City of Arches, according to Matt and Phil, took around two weeks.

    The texture pack used in the video is Dokucraft, with music by Approaching Nirvana. The song in particular is Ocean Dawn, which you can get on iTunes here.

    posted a message on Minecraft Patch 1.6.6 Released
    The latest Minecraft patch is now available for download. This patch is primarily focused on fixing issues that have cropped up since the release of 1.6, but Notch has made a few gameplay changes as well.

    • Added a new use for bonemeal
    • Changed the material of glowstone from “glass” to “stone”. This means you need a pickaxe to get resources from it
    • Made glowstone drop more loot
    • Made the recipe sizes for creating cloth blocks and glowstone blocks smaller (2x2 instead of 3x3)
    • Re-introduced unlimited FPS, renamed the option again
    • Fixed beds not working very well at all in SMP
    • Fixed destroying a boat spawning the player too low, causing them to sometimes fall through the ground
    • Boats float up to the surface quicker
    • Boats falling down into water lose their vertical momentum very fast
    • Removed Herobrine

    posted a message on Minecraft 1.7 Will Be The "Adventure Update"

    Heads up, Minecrafters! The next big update to Minecraft beta will be patch 1.7, according to Notch. While he says it will be a while before it goes live, there was also a hint given at what's coming. It's going to be the "Adventure Update" or something similar to that, says Notch.

    What's up with Minecraft before 1.7? Well, next week we're going to be seeing 1.6.6 release, which will be an update to address issues with the recently released patch 1.6. The following week Notch will be headed to the United States -- and Los Angeles in particular -- to spend some time at E3. We'll be there too, so hopefully we can pick his brain about 1.7.

    Finally, a buzz kill for folks who enjoy rumors. Minecraft: Source is a false one.

    Interesting you mention that, because I'm actually looking through adventure maps now to add to the list of things to feature. :)

    As I said, you have to have played the game to truly appreciate it. But there's no set order to the videos being posted -- I have a few more ready to go and will be posting them over the weekend. I picked this one for today to try and mix things up, so that it's not always a music video, and so on.

    posted a message on Digital Diamond: EverQuest's West Freeport
    Some of the most impressive videos put together for Minecraft are those that recreate a level, a city or an area from other games. This latest diamond is no different. Though you'll have to have some experience with the MMORPG EverQuest under your belt to truly appreciate this, it's a fantastic recreation of one of the most memorable cities in a gaming genre: West Freeport.

    Sadly, this is as close to the classic West Freeport that EverQuest veterans will get as of now, due to the area being visually revamped in one of the game's expansions. Thanks go out to Aandolaf for preserving a bit of online gaming history, complete with the zone's original music.

    Im just laughing because there was a user who beat people running the forums:D


    First of all, I don't 'run the forums', I'm helping WedTM while he gets used to posting news since he hasn't done it before. Amazingly there are games other than Minecraft and I was in the middle of posting content somewhere else.

    And no, it's obvious you just have an issue with Curse -- that's why you're trolling this with three posts now. Your username says it all.

    posted a message on More Patch 1.6 Details, Releasing Wednesday

    We now have a more concrete date on Minecraft patch 1.6 going live, instead of just "next week." Notch tweeted early this morning that the patch is scheduled for a Wednesday release. He follows that up with stating that this more than likely means it will be released late Thursday. But still, we at least know the day(s) it's coming now.

    He also shared more details on the bug fixes in the patch. There are 78 lines in the notes for fixes and tweaks for the patch as of this writing. Notch clarifies that these are mostly minor bug fixes, including things like fixing dispenser graphics being one pixel off. But he's also nerfed fire: it will no longer spread infinitely as of the patch.

    There's also a new server view-distance property being introduced, allowing admins to choose the radius of terrain updates -- in chunks -- that are sent to players. You can tweak this anywhere from 3 to 15, with the default being 10.

    would be a nice effect to use when getting to this new floating island biome thing, if its a seperate 'world' like the nether.


    That's actually an awesome idea!

    posted a message on Mojang Adds New Payment Options, Minecraft Support
    For those of you who have been waiting for new payment options before purchasing Minecraft, your day may have finally come. Mojang has added over 100 payment options through MoneyBookers and PayPal.

    According to Mojang's Daniel Kaplan, these new payment options will be especially helpful for those who want to use American Express, or those located in Germany and Poland.

    On the support side of things, Mojang has introduced a new automated support that Kaplan feels should help with most Minecraft account-related issues. You'll be able to get all of your account support through the automated system, including a list of all usernames attached to an email, info on your account, and more.

    From here out, if you send an email directly to Mojang about account issues you will receive an automated response directing to the new support system on the Minecraft website.
