    There are a lot of dedicated communities that adhere to family-friendly rules and have excellent filters and staff on at all times. Take a good look at what's out there and maybe you'll find a better landing pad for your daughter.

    Unfortunately, the only place you would be able to report anything is somewhere specific to the server she was playing on. Other than the basic articles in the EULA, players are basically allowed to do whatever they please on their own servers and it's up to players to administrate themselves using the in-game tools or server-side plugins and mods.

    You'll have to take it up with the owner or administrators of that server. Honestly, pustulent children posting horrible things they don't understand to try and get a reaction out of people is a very common thing in any online game without chat filtering. It's not going to be just that one player, but if it is a small server, perhaps they'd be able to take him out of the equation and that would be good enough.

    Mods are what make Minecraft. You can download modpack launchers and essentially get the content of hundreds of games in one.

    posted a message on Survival Islands with Ocean monument!
    That would be one of three Elder Guardians that are in each Ocean Monument.

    Drops:

    prismarine crystals/shards

    wet sponge

    clownfish, salmon, pufferfish raw fish

    Edit: and I'll have you know, sponges are a very significant drop and players have been eager for them for a long time, lol

    Just to make sure everyone knows, VBOs are an optimization, not something that drains resources. They are amazing. :D

    VBO's either help, or do nothing at all.

    My fps is insanely higher with this version.



    On my bad PC, I went from 30 fps with short render, no smooth lighting, and fast render settings to a solid 60 fps with far render, max smooth lighting, and fancy rendering option.

    posted a message on [Feedback] Forum Icon Redesign- Part 2
    Quote from hardcorerobot

    In case it isn't understood I am proposing getting rid of the hideous ones on here now and using only ones that look like the two right columns - ones that look like Minecraft. There's really no need to add the white areas to the sides of the block - it makes them look ugly. We're on a discussion forum - does an icon need a word balloon on it too?

    I totally agree.

    I don't think the current('old') forum's pictures are all that bad. I prefer your suggestions as they make more sense, look more appealing, and relate to the game.

    On that note, I'd prefer if the background wasn't straight white. I've always liked the light blue background of the MC forums as it was easier on the eyes.

    -Sigh-

    Is it possible that at least what existed of The Betweenlands can be released?


    Only if somebody with adequate permissions allows the old version to be distributed.

    They should just release it so people can just play it and report bugs


    As a person holding onto one of the most up-to-date copies of the mod (which was actually scrapped and started over entirely...), I can tell you that this is not something that they can release for testing. It's far too early in development to be of much use to anybody other than toying around for a little bit.

    EDIT: I've taken over. Got a somewhat-decent plan of attack, and tomorrow I will start my epic quest to find some more coders for the mod.


    Best of luck, Dylan.

    Quote from MoPlants

    It's sad that the old version never was finished and released, the only thing that prevented us from releasing a first non dev version was the huge amount of bugs and the lack of features for survival (even though it already had a lot of content). And afaik it's there's nothing going on with the reboot either. Haven't seen Oli in skype for a long time (probably over a month) and the AP chat on skype is pretty much dead, at least I can't see anything about the Betweenlands. Oh well, I still hope that the new team continues working on the mod again and can release it at some point.
    Also, the old source is still somewhere around on dropbox, maybe one day someone can fix all those old bugs and the lack of features for survival and release it as I honestly don't think this mod, especially the reebot, will be continued (even though I totally hope it should be continued).


    Yeah, it's sad and was unexpected. I think the few of us that snagged a dev copy early on are going to be the only ones who have experienced a functional(mostly) Prime Wight boss fight, and the other wonders that were currently in the mod.

    That's a possibility. He could've just quit due to the amount of work and stress it takes. I thought the team was finally moving and working however?


    Nothing has been done towards the mod in almost a month and a half.

    I think he has just been busy. It says that he has been online today(at time of typing).


    I think he's grown tired of the fact that this has all grown into more work than it should have been. It's not easy to make a team actually function.
