    Yeah, the zombie-spawning is only on hard. I don't think I can do a lot of the fortress on hard, so eh. I did pretty good my first try since I found the mushroom soup but wow, those wither skeletons and blazes. Always hated them.

    First off, didn't mean to come off as rude or just plain whiny albeit it's easy to be whiny if you just constantly lose, especially in survival games. In a non-hipster-sounding way, I played Vechs' maps back when they were just out and classic-y and yes, they was hard. His first map, IIRC, the lava-surrounded-island was very hard. It was closing in on unbalanced in a 'You could've put in more' way but it was do-able. It still holds up today and I think it's because he balanced it perfectly where you weren't in danger of being hit by enemies constantly but you had to go through enemy-filled areas to 'edge' closer to resources and rewards and etc. That being said, having a map that is very difficult to encourage the feeling of survival is great because not a lot of games do it.


    I actually never spent a lot of time in the Nether myself when I played Vanilla Minecraft so I'm slightly ignorant. The ghasts are, of course, very annoying. I think I recall when you could get cooked meat from the zombie pigmen if you burned them/ghasts killed them. I played when there were only ghasts, zombie pigmen, pits of lava, ceiling-glowstone-stalactites, as well as the slowsand, so all-in-all I'm at a disadvantage but that's irrelevant.


    Honestly, most of my comment is about how you start the player off. Starting off in the Nether is do-able, it's just not easy and the way it's done is sort of one-sided. The point being that it's very hard, as your initial supplies for relevant tools is... 13 stone, I think? That's not a lot, assuming you use it to get a stone sword and pick and then just farm your wood for lowest-tier back-up supplies and of course bowls and the like. When I got to the nether fortress, I had no source of food or weapons(I don't recall being able to get any wheat or anything similar, other than mushrooms...?) so I got lucky to find even gold weapons / armour. It's just tough to see what you *can* do when you don't have anything to go off of.


    For the crops, I'm not sure. I had glowstone in between the trees but they refused to grow. I think at some point half of my stuff I had planted down got blown up by ghasts so I suppose I gave up at that point.


    I understand the whole 'the map is literally vanilla but with custom aspects to it' and that's amazing. I wasn't implying that I *need* a starter kit, I was just implying that how the game starts off, 'dead-end' in the nether so-to-speak, I'm not even sure how I'm going to 'advance' from a tiny little base right outside of the nether because even resources-wise I didn't find anything significant. Might have just been me.


    I'm going to start it up again but I'm probably not going to do so well. Building an initial base is tough enough for me, assuming I get ghasts spawning at the portal whenever I enter the nether which happens a lot. Great map, either way.


    What I can say is that I don't think the Keep Inventory is working for me but I'll try it again.


    P.S. I played your "Caved-In" a while back and that was great. I lost my save because I got bored after a while of getting lost and having no idea where to go or what to do but it was very fun.

    Quote from SlamDrag

    Hypothetical situation, company makes a string of bad games and is losing money hand over fist. They then make a good game, which then gets pirated and the profits aren't enough to keep the game afloat.

    Another hypothetical situation, a company makes a bunch of good games then makes a horrendously bad game (which again gets pirated, but in this case the pirates will definitely not consider purchasing it) and they lose so much money they have to close.

    I could totally see that happening.

    Big game companies don't have as much money as you think they do (with the exception of maybe valve). If a game is pirated to much it could potentially start leading to the downfall of a company. Don't just think "Oh they have tons of money, I mean they've made a bunch of successful games!"

    Yes and they've also made thrice as many games that flopped. While unlikely, piracy could definitely be a factor in a companies downfall.

    Also there is the legality of piracy.


    If they only made one good game and a bunch of bad games that were leaking money out of their company in the first place, that's their fault. Not piracy. VERY small chance that the ONE game would save the company.

    They make a ton of good ones, then a bad one, and the bad one is pirated causing the company to close? What the hell? If it was bad, it wouldn't have gotten them any money anyways.

    Big game companies do have a lot of money. They wouldn't be big if they didn't. Besides, where the hell is your proof, etc? I actually used information that can be found from several sources, ignoring common sense itself.

    Yes, piracy can be a FACTOR but not a CAUSE. Big difference between the two. Hell, you're spinning a pretty big web over something that a good portion of the internet doesn't give a crap about, because hey, it's not a big deal. It's 2013. No one gives a ­ anymore.

    Legality of piracy? Do you honestly think pirates DON'T know that piracy is illegal? Better yet, do you think they CARE?

    I'm curious... How many of you actually care? I thought the internet would become bored of the whole 'hatin' on CoD kids' theme.

    Quote from Dextrous

    Actually, Govna brings up some pretty good points sometimes. He just comes across as a bad person to a lot of people.

    The only issue I have with Govna, is that he tries to be a smart, what with his sarcasm and stuff. In all honesty, Govna is probably one of the smarter people that you'll actually fail to argue with, but he uses sarcasm way too much.

    Way too much.

    It's funny because the creator of this topic has an anime picture.. Which makes me think ''Seriously? Look at yourself >_>''
    Anyway, most (guys) people use them because, well.. You know why. Anime girls, you know.
    I'd be surprised if a guy didn't like an anime character..
    I have a tiny kind of anime crush I guess.

    I don't like an anime character.

    Surprise.
