    posted a message on Texture Artists' Union
    Hi there, I have a texture question and I was hoping for some advice. I've been fiddling with grass textures, and it seems no matter what I do, the top and side textures don't match. Here's my grass:



    And here's how it looks ingame:



    I've blanked out the side_overlay and the grass shader, and I'm playing on fancy graphics- so why don't they match up? The sides in the screenshot are more along the lines of the actual color, while the top is a much brighter green. Any ideas on how to fix this, please?

    posted a message on Petition: Mojang needs to change the EULA!
    Quote from TheOneFromBehind

    Meh, I don't play multiplayer.

    Me neither. And yet according to some, Minecraft is going to die because everyone, from the people who only play singleplayer, to the parents making a server for their kids, to the teachers organizing afterschool clubs, are all going to look at this debacle and go "hmm, you know I really care that I can't shake down my server players for cash in exchange for perks any more. I don't think I'll ever play, buy a license for, or create content for Minecraft ever again." Get a grip, people. Minecraft is not coming to a screeching halt because you can't charge $10 for a diamond block or whatever any more.

    This petition is ridiculous, and I'm quite happy Mojang is taking a stand against server owners selling bits of the game their users already bought in exchange for money.

    Also shame on all of you who say that this will kill the Minecraft community. How dare you try and speak for everyone, myself included. If you're going to have wrong opinions, don't try to tar me with the same brush.

    posted a message on The Spice of Life (encouraging dietary variety through diminishing returns)
    I have been wanting precisely this mod for a long, long time. It's hard to justify installing even wonderful mods like HarvestCraft when you know that despite all the variety of foods on offer you'll probably just stick with one or two recipes for the duration of the game. Now I have a gameplay encouragement to actually eat a variety of foods. Thank you so much for your work!

    posted a message on Mc Creator = BAD
    I can see the reasoning behind the various points of view here, and am kind of on the fence with this. On the one hand, I've seen the typical posted MCreator mod and I do think it tends to be of lower quality than the typical posted "scratch" mod. Having attempted to use MCreator before, I would imagine this is in part because the program is rather limited in what it can do. The other part is I believe that MCreator users tend to be younger children, and people who are just concerned with quickly getting a tangible form of their nifty mod idea out there- people who don't want to spend a truthfully rather large investment of time learning Java.

    That being said, I feel like some of the sentiments here smack of a bit of elitism. Kinda reminds me of the people who look down on programming languages like Java in favor of Assembly or whatever. One of the things I've been learning in regards to programming is the importance of iteration. There is nothing wrong with time-saving techniques and programs. They're the reason we have the technology of today. Refusing to accept the use of time-saving technology is pretty backwards, I think.

    All in all, I think that perhaps there should be a separate sub forum for MCreator mods, to avoid them flooding this forum. Or at the very least one should be required to tag their posts appropriately if they use such a program. Certainly people ought not to be passing off MCreator mods as "scratch" mods. But as long as some appropriate measures are taken, I don't see anything wrong with posting MCreator mods publicly.

    posted a message on How do I convince parents for minecraft PC?
    Quote from Pennio

    They just don't want me staring at a computer for 4 hours straight.


    Quote from earthman888
    Then maybe tell them that they can set a time limit on it.


    What this guy said. Let them impose whatever time restriction they feel is reasonable. Maybe offer to remove it from your other devices if you're willing, so you don't actually spend too much time playing Minecraft. Or perhaps offer this: for every hour spent on Minecraft, you must spend maybe another half an hour doing something active. Or you could set up a rewards system, where you earn time on the game by completing homework, household chores, exercise etc.

    Regardless of what you decide to do, be thorough and mature about it. From my experience at least, parents are much more likely to respond positively to a reasonable and thought-out plan than to whining or a tantrum.

    Oh, definitely. And what usually happens is that I die, and lose a whole trip's worth of items. Caves!

    posted a message on The Minecraft Community is a Monster
    Video gamers as a whole tend to have big issues with entitlement, I think. It's either all complaints, all the time, or the other extreme, where they slavishly worship a developer and wave away actual issues.

    Frankly, though, I think the "automation" issue does have a bit of merit. I think the crazy machines and processing plants are a great part of Minecraft, and I don't really understand the nerf. It is Mojang's game, though- and I'm not going to make any histrionic statements about quitting the game forever or whatnot. It is a pity, but oh well.

    Hi there. Thank you very much for making MCPatcher available; do you think you could please answer a question for me? I'm using MultiMC 5, and if there's a way to use that with MCPatcher, for the life of me I haven't been able to find it. If this is possible, can you please tell me? Thank you very much for any assistance.
