    posted a message on Making Hardcore Harder

    I've never felt having one life makes the game 'hard'. All it really does is magnify the frustration of glitches because even if you're careful they're the ones that kill you (super twitchy enderman). Sometimes it's just a combination of situations like being stuck outside in the rain in the dark etc.


    I guess I'm not against you're idea per se, I'm against hardcore in general. lol

    It got more saturated and more contrast


    lol that's what I did with my texture pack a while ago, then when I went to this update minecraft was double-over colored. Minecraft is always 8 steps behind it's players.


    I hope they keep it, I like when they add something I've already added that way when I update to new versions I have to add less, although texture packs work across versions so..

    1.7, they should've already stopped.

    Very nice looking pack! The only problem I have with it is that I think the eyes on everything look funny. lol

    Villages were already complicated to manage, now it's rocket science. I'll stick to my safe breed platform tyvm

    Java enthusiasts are not a great source of objective information on Java programming. Suffice it to say, there's a reason that 3D games are not coded in Java.

    Moving away from Java, to a combination of C++ and a dedicated rendering engine (Unreal, etc.) would allow the game to break some serious performance barriers, enable cubic chunks (or equivalent), and dramatically improve rendering times, reduce lag and utilize GPUs better. Infinite height, insanely far rendering distances, and improved creature AI.

    Shoving it all in Java classes is nuts. It is like trying to fill a beercan with a firehose. Even the math processing in Java is limited.

    The reality is that Microsoft will probably recode the thing from scratch at some point anyway, as they slowly push out the old Mojangsters, and I would bet it is considering it right now. But I wouldn't expect to see that version for 3-4 years.

    I usually hate Microsoft, but they would do Minecraft some serious justice doing that.

    Hey, I went to modding class for 3 days. It really gave me a humbling experience to programmers.

    It takes 2 hours to add 1 whole new item from scratch, including textures, effects, etc. Imagine making a new mob, including sounds, texture, animation, drops, behavior, AI, entity tags, spawn, etc. Same with biomes, except biomes are even harder, so don't go asking so much from Mojang.

    It's true that takes about 2 hours, but when we're talking about months of development we're talking about code rewrites and coming up with concepts for the game. I think what screwed over time management with 1.8 was the fact that they were going hardcore for getting the API up and going but also doing many other things in between and stretching themselves between games. It's a tactical error.

    And face it guys, the amount of time they took with breaks, they could have made another major update. There was so little activity in the Minecraft sphere that I almost forgot about Minecraft in general.

    Lay off the haterade bro. And chill out for pete's sake!

    Pete can have a hearturtack for all I care, and haterade has eloctrolytes.

    It's really not bad of an update, but other updates would get cranked out in 3-4 months with slightly more content (they even had life to attend to in those months along with holidays).
