Some people have already suggested that this is a bad idea because it is not optional, but making it optional (i.e. having a portal) kills the "Dream" part of it (i.e. you go ther when you sleep).
Other people have suggested an item that increases the likelihood of you being sent to the Dream World.
I have another solution: a Dreamcatcher, made out of sticks, feathers, and string. As long as you have it in your inventory, you will occasionally go to the Dream World when you sleep.
Crafting recipe could be something like:
Where the wool is string and the flint is feathers.

Dec 13, 2011Currently Bricks serve no purpose other than a medium between Clay Blobs and Brick Blocks. I propose that they be throwable, similar to snowballs, only for damage. I can't imagine this would be terribly hard to implement since the coding clearly already exists in game.Posted in: Suggestions

The average age on a Minecraft server will go from 14 to 12... not much of a difference.

Wow. The second **** in this thread so far. Stop randomly claiming people have mental disorders such as aspergers. It's not a joke, it's quite a serious thing. So, for the second time today, on behalf of the community go **** yourself.
And as for as single instance of him being misleading, Notch vs Zenimax. Go look it up.
And stop wasting our oxygen you little ****.
Hey, good job double quoting me there aspie! You lernin to computer?
There wasn't a single misleading tweet during the BETHESDA SOFTWORKS(NOT ZENIMAX/BETHESDA STUDIOS) lawsuit. The fact that you don't even know which company it was is extremely telling.
Oh, and **** off.
Nov 21, 2011I love how people are rushing to yogscast's defense and attributing all sorts of motives to them like "they didn't mean it" and all this **** that they can't possibly know.Posted in: Discussion
So I'm going to go ahead and make some assumptions too. Simon and Lewis are a bunch of aspergers-inflicted assholes who didn't know how to interact with people prior to minecon, probably showed up to their panel drunk, and will pay for it in the sense that they won't ever be invited to anything Mojang-related ever again. Everything Notch said was probably spot on (since I can't think of a single instance when Notch hasn't been completely candid with everyone on his Twitter), and consequently they deserve every ounce of criticism.
Most telling is what Notch said about hate, insults, and threats flowing in from Yogscast fans, which definitely tips me off about which community is on the mark on this one.

I've got a HC world that I've been playing for months. I've got a mob aggregator for XP (poorly designed, but top of map to lvl 12) village is completely walled, working on a 3x3 tunnel to another village I found. Got all relevant furniture.
Man it is gonna be lulzy when you die.

Why don't we add an option to make pigs blue and say "flippity-dippity-ding-dong" as well? There can't be an option/menu button for everything. If there was, where do you think people would stop? They'd want little buttons that make dirt fall, or mods you have installed on/off, or gold tools to be stronger, or a million tiny other little things that don't really matter. A menu button sounds all right at first thought, but once implemented it's on the verge of being ugly and pointless a lot of the time.
The sounds may be subject to change, but after being tested in the RC's and released in the official version of Minecraft, the likelyhood of them being changed without having to install a mod or replace the file is extremely low.
To be fair, these forums are full of butthurt and fail, so no one in their right mind would ever pay attention to anything that is said on them (especially Notch).
That being said the above paragraph is so blindingly correct it broke my monitor.

Quoth /v/, you ******s will argue over anything.
Oct 2, 2011I disagree that Hardcore doesn't up the challenge in a world. Knowing that, if you die, it's all gone for good definitely changes how you play, limiting some otherwise risky actions you might take. That definitely ups the difficulty a bit.Posted in: Survival Mode

2. spend all day getting trees and seeds
3. build tree farm under ground
literally the only thing you are missing out on by not going above ground are natural trees
although the first few nights might be a little boring waiting for your tiny tree farm to grow so you can find a cave
See you would think this, but there are so many other little things that exist only on the surface that you will smack yourself in the head for not getting once you are down in the ground. I already mentioned one (wool), but there are others like reeds, cacti, sand (exists only very close to the surface) etc. Not to mention the fact that you only have one day to gather supplies probably makes it impossible you will go down into the earth with a bucket of water, which is necessary for growing wheat. Hence your first priority is getting water: this becomes a frantic search without food, especially if you forgot to gather food on the surface.
I could go on and on but this is part of the fun of this challenge. I have to say, if you think this is too easy, I really encourage you to try it and see if you screw up your first attempt.
Oct 2, 2011So I had a thought recently as I was thinking of ways to entertain myself with Minecraft. Some people say that the game is becoming boring, and too easy. The "Hardcore" option is sort of a response to this, but I think Hardcore goes a bit too far (and you may agree). Consider this a challenge in a similar vein.Posted in: Survival Mode
You wake up one morning - this very day, in fact - and you somehow know that at the end of the day the world as you know it will cease to exist, and that, with the rising of the sun tomorrow morning, the surface of the planet will be scorched into an unlivable, barren wasteland, taking every living creature with it.
The only solution is to bury yourself underground. Deep underground.
The challenge is this. You have one Minecraft day to collect everything you will ever need to survive underground, forever. At sundown, you must seal yourself inside an underground bunker, and dig. You cannot ever return to the surface, for anything. For added fun, try listening to some of the creepiest/saddest music you have while doing this. Additionally, I recommend playing on HARD MODE. Any less, and you lose one of the most brutal aspects of this mode: the possibility that you might starve to death.
You may not think this sounds very interesting, but this playstyle has completely revitalized my Minecraft experience.
Things I have experienced:
1) "Oh !$%&*#" Moments - Where I realized I forgot an absolutely essential component on the surface, and that I was going to be severely limited without it.
2) Rationing - Times when I had to limit how active I was during the "day" because I was running out of food, or force myself to choose which items I would craft with my limited materials. You also learn to appreciate some materials which you may have just thrown out before.
3) Paranoia/Claustrophobia - Though this is greatly enhanced by creepy music, Minecraft's random weird noises, and the sounds of hostile mobs already give this effect pretty well.
4) Forced Combat with Mobs - Combat with Mobs when just playing through Minecraft normally is never really forced. If you end up fighting Mobs playing through Minecraft, you probably screwed up (got caught out late) or you want whatever items they're dropping. In this mode, you will sometimes be thrown into (often desperate) battles for your survival. These can be incredibly exhilirating.
5) Moments of Reward - You will experience moments where your patience or daring pays dividends. When your supplies are already extremely limited, these are extremely rewarding.
These alone have completely changed the way I look at the game, but there are of course other small aspects which are enjoyable. I highly recommend this to anyone who really appreciates the "Survival" in Survival Mode.
If anyone wants some tips for giving it a shot, I can throw them in a spoiler below, but really... a lot of the fun in this mode comes from quickly making a mental list of all the items you will need and rushing to collect them - and maybe missing one or two, and learning to cope. The one thing I will say is you will want to grab some wool for a bed, put it inside your bunker and sleep in it the first night. Otherwise, if you die, you'll have to spawn on the surface - and we can't have that, can we?
If this isn't an original thought I apologize, but I did want to share.

Sep 27, 2011I must be the only person who thinks that this is not a battle Mojang can win. Bethesda has a fleet of lawyers that win stupid battles like these all the time in court simply by virtue of fiscal and numerical advantage. Sure the lawsuit's retarded (and anyone looking at it outside a courtroom can see that) but Bethesda will wheel out their Harvard-educated legal team who will spout some ******** about patents, the judge will buy it, and suddenly Mojang is in a whole mess of trouble (financial and legal). It's not hard to see how badly this could go for Mojang.Posted in: News
It's like the big bully pushing you down in elementary school. Sure, you can push him back and start a fight you're probably gonna lose, but it's probably better in the long run to get up, brush yourself off, and just walk away.

Can't you at least update the 1.8 pre-release?
Then we get to play a less glitchy version, and Mojang gets free bug-testing help! :laugh.gif:
rtfp, they said they were updating the 1.8 pre-release.
As a person who isn't playing until 1.9 is in and world generation is finalized, this is frustrating but really not that unexpected since release dates are pushed back all the time nowadays.
