Aug 18, 2011Oldie posted a message on My god.. The old /infdev/ epic mountains are back!Since Alpha we were getting some lame hills and small bumps in the terrain, but, LOOK AT THIS:Posted in: Discussion
Not only the epic river, but also super-high, super-awesome mountains!
Hurray for Notch!
Aug 15, 2011I remember long time ago, when Minecraft was still using the NBT format there used to be an assembly full of useful classes and functions which allowed you to access the data on your Minecraft save files.Posted in: Mods Discussion
That, however, was way back, and I don't know if that assembly still exists and if it is still functional with the new Minecraft save format. Does it, or a similar assembly, still exist? And if yes - where can I get it?

New players began to mistake Minecraft's current state as the final, be-all end-all vision for the game, conveniently ignoring the massive changes that Notch had promised, and continues to promise.

I've been reading through the topic, and your absolute arrogance at seeming to think that your word is better than any others is atrocious. I won't comment on how long you may or may not have been playing Minecraft, since I don't actually have any proof of such yet that I have played longer than you, but I've been around for those so called "Glory Days" in which everyone was being stupid-school-girl for NPC Villages. You say the "newbies" are opposed to it, but in reality it is just a growing opposition to it now that it's actually been announced clearly. I've opposed the idea NPC towns ever since its disgusting contraception, and I still do now. Still, I hold that they could be cool.
That does not mean I want NPC's in all of my worlds; THAT is why everyone wants a "Mode" for NPC's, because having a choice is better than outright refusing either side in an argument. Setting aside your ignorance, that is all I ask despite my hatred for the idea of tainting my worlds with NPC's, is an option. A choice. /rant.
I will now continue to read this thread from where I left off, but I had to reply when I read that.
My arrogance is something everyone should adapt. It's your best shield against the internet-hate. Also, it's kind of part of my personality IRL.
Although I don't remember the exact date, I started playing Minecraft a week or two before the release of Survival Test, and bought it about a week after the release of /indev/.

And do you know what I hate? People who play Minecraft since Indev and before, and think they are the best. You're not. Especially when you finish the rest of the players.
And I don't care what shaked you once. It's "today" now.
Stop being such a ****, and read this post:

You know what's wrong with most of the new players? They've got no perspective on what the game was SUPPOSED to be a long time ago, and can't even look for the information in the blog. Press the back button in there a few times and you'll see how different the game was supposed to be. NPC villages were promised since before the Halloween update. This game is not nearly what it was meant to be, and as such it's still in development. There are changes coming, the adventure update will not be a mode, but a change right down to the core of the game.
Experience orbs will not be that stupid leveling system we've seen everywhere else so often before. If anything it'll probably be linked to the combat and some of the moves you can do. Who knows? Notch'll probably revolutionize the idea completely. I highly doubt it'll be the boring runescape leveling boring mechanics and boring grinding.
The NPC villages are probably not going to be like millenaire's villages, and the inhabitants will most likely be pig-men, since they've been sitting around for a long time (and it only makes sense with zombie pigmen around). Besides, they'll probably oink something like "Be a good piglet, or you'll end up in the nether!" as a threat to their kids. Again, who knows what to expect until we get it?
Don't hate, appreciate!
To WJohnston: It's hard for me to describe how much I agree with you.

No NOTCH NOOOOOOOOOO! I play Minecraft to be alone with the nature, to enjoy the landscape and to build stuff. Remember what Millenaires do with logs, even in a building?
Notch, this is stupid. It ruins the aspect most of the people play Minecraft for. If I want brainless people, I go to Reddit Chaos ^^
... hey modders, time to find the class files for NPC villages, and delete them ...
I ****ing hate newbies.
The bare thought of NPC towns used to shake the community in delight during Minecraft's glory days.
What the **** happened now?
Jun 28, 2011Speaking as a very old Minecraft fan, I've been horribly disappoint of Minecraft in the last year or so. But, with the upcoming Adventure Update, it seems like Notch has finally laid off the cheap Vodka and decided to put all the promised-yet-undelivered features we were waiting for since /indev/ (and even earlier) into the game.Posted in: Discussion
The small hint about a leveling system or whatever reminded me of this ancient poll (which for some reason got its results changed. If I remember correctly, originally 60% were against leveling and only 40% were in favor of MMORPG features).
Anyway, my point is, the Adventure Update is what will finally bring hope back to Minecraft fans, and to me. Thanks Notch, for listening to your audience for the first time in months. I hope you'll fix the damn pig-riding mechanic at last.

I can understand if you simply say you don't like it.... but to do as far as saying it "doesn't fit minecraft's style" is absurd.
It's not blocky at all.
And i'm angered by it because it totally ruins the Minecraft tradition.
It's as if the next update will include gun, or non-block objects.

The very WORST in the water level in Rayman 3. It's just like walking, but with a different animation and rooms painted blue.

For the love of god, somebody buy him The Orange Box...
1. Nintendo is much, much, MUCH worse that Valve. All Nintendo does is casual games and remakes of the same **** 2 games (Mario and Zelda) over and over again.
2. The reason everyone vote for Valve isn't ****ing Steam.
Mar 30, 2011Posted in: General GamingQuote from HawtDawg925 »Just curious, what is your favorite song from any game? (Only games that you have played, please.)
Mine is probably Last Cave from Cave Story. (Wii remake)
Also, for the love of god, get the PC version
inb4 white knighting, i don't have a problem with the Wii version. It's simply the fact that the PC version's music is better

How did Bioware beat Bethesda?
TES is easily better than mass effe- wait, let me get my flame suit on, OK there we are, OK, now attack you mass effect zombie fanboys, I will die in an honorable way, fighting down the hordes of fanboys.
I actually predicted that. Bioware has made a lot of games recently, and it made itself quite of a fanbase. The latest Bethesda release was back in 2008. The only people who vote for it are either old The Elder Scrolls fans or people who haven't heard of Bioware/played its games.
Not that i'm suggesting that Bioware is anywhere better than Bethesda. I personally voted for Bethesda, but i knew that it's going to be a lost cause.

It's ironic that you brought up the Crysis example, seeing as it support the PC gamers' opinion.
Crysis 2 is a CoD clone with nanosuits. Although it does have a connection with the first game, the gameplay and general style are completely different.
And Halo and Homefront and Battlefield: Bad Company and Medal of Honor are CoD clones with altered graphics and all racing games are clones of each other with different cars and all albums are clones of each other with different lyrics.
Seriously, something getting more popular is a good thing, you hipster tool. Also, if you bothered to use your damn brain, you might know that FortressCraft has been in development for 2 years, before MC Classic even came out.
Halo is not a CoD clone, and neither is Hamofront (probably). Bad Company 2 is desperately trying to beat CoD in its own special way, which is acceptable. Medal of Honor is a CoD clone.
And yes - the way i see it, many racing games are practically clones of each other in terms of gameplay.
If something goes popular - that's great! Hurray! But, if something goes popular for copying a thing already popular, it's just wrong. It's even worse when the copying side used to have its own personal unique style and it just dropped it to make more money.
