    posted a message on Lets rebuild Minecraft - 2.0

    I think your motivations are good, but your lack of technical knowledge makes your ideas a little near-sighted.

    If Mojang would rewrite JE over the course of two years, they would just use the codebase from BE and change it. There is no point in wasting hundreds of programming-hours on making something that will inherently be slower than a much-more matured project. Furthermore, the whole point of MC is that it has simple visuals: the screenshots you have attached are no doubt using shaders that are computationally expensive and need a powerful PC to use them. No magical re-write will fix that. Again, making a terrain generator similar to the first image is unrealistic as a default (maybe as a choose-able option it could work). The amount of detail and variance in the terrain would take forever to generate even a small area. If you want to look at a realistic terrain generator, look up "RealisticTerrainGenerator Biome Bundle". RTG BB is a good mix of vanilla generation that is still relatively performant (my PC is by no means weak but still struggles in the more complex biomes).

    You mention how we can run MC on a $10 Pi to support your argument, but that is tremendously disingenuous—the only officially supported version is 0.6.1(?) of the Pocket Edition changed specifically for the Pi, released in 2013. You can run newer versions, but they run like hot garbage, as anyone would expect.

    The issue with an infinite-Y axis isn't the performance, but the math related to it. As everyone knows, MC has dynamic lighting—the problem with an endless height then becomes how the heck does the game know which blocks are covered?


    I see this response has become a giant wall of text, so I'll give you a TL;DR:

    Don't let a rewrite act as a panacea for inherit limitations of Java and old hardware support. No 11-year-old is going to get their parents to buy a new $1000 PC to play a video game, much less Minecraft.

    It's not throttled, it's just well optimized. If you've ever played BE or seen someone play BE, you would notice that it actually looks better than the JE in some cases (the most obvious being lighting).

    Since BE uses C++ instead of Java, it doesn't have to worry about JRE or LWJGL (does MC still use LWJGL?) bloat AND they can directly interface with the hardware instead of dealing with virtualized code that has no direct path to the hardware.

    posted a message on Windows 7??

    No
    Because Mojang never disclosed it and there is no way for us to know

    posted a message on Minecraft doesnt run like what it used to be.

    RAM is *rarely* the cause of performance issues (vanilla MC doesn't use any more than 1-2GB), it's usually always your graphics card.

    What graphics card do you have?

    posted a message on How to boost FPS
    Quote from MCOfficer»

    my PC is even worse and i can play [constantly] with more than 30fps, so improving this is worth a try.


    so, there are a couple of ways to boost minecraft. first on the list are always optifine and the Xmx argument to allocate more RAM. then enhance your optifine settings. there is a pretty goot tutorial here, ecen though you won't get 200fps with your pc ;)

    if you still have problems, think about fpsplus, BetterFPS, or fastcraft.


    Note: not all of these Mods work well together. You will need to make some research to compatibility, depending on which you decide to use.


    still issues? make sure minecraft doesn't use a 32bit version of java, cause this will limit the RAM you can allocate to 1GB. Force minecraft to use your graphics card via the grapics driver control center. Or just again, a lot of people had this problem and most of them found a solution, so you will literally drown in answers ;)



    With 3GB, he can't really allocate any more than 512MB without possibly crashing his system



    Also, you really need to get a new computer because with a 1.8GHz dual-core processor, you really can't do any better than what you already have (here would be a good cheap one)

    if you want some stats then:


    So far 21,438,420 people bought the PC/Mac version of the game. Phew.


    i went back after PASTING (i hate autocorrect, it autocorrected to asking) that to find:


    So far 21,438,426 people bought the PC/Mac version of the game. Phew.


    this means minecraft is selling at about 1 copy per second. that is:


    the same rate of people dying


    the same rate of people being born


    so no, minecraft isn't dying. its gaining loads of users.


    That counter is automatic - it does not reflect actual sales...

    posted a message on BlockLauncher: an Android app that patches Minecraft PE without reinstall
    Quote from StealthyXech»

    Hey, on my device blocklauncher has been crashing... a lot. Now, before you tell me "if you look at the description on the appstore it says it's not capable of some Samsung devises", I already know this. I also know it's not just the Samsung phones acting up. I took the advice on the description and I decided to let you guys know my phone model and operating system and all that so I can get some help and support. My phone is an ASUS zenfone E2 and is an android (version 5.0.1). I hope I get some support cuz I was really looking forward to that portal gun mod for minecraft pe. Thanks.


    Your phone uses an x86-based processor, which BL does not support

    minecraft 2 doesn't exist.



    Sacveverall has told me in a Private Message that he's stated in the official news reports on the front page that microsoft has no interaction with Minecraft. i can even give you proof.

    added proof


    Microsoft can still do whatever the heck they want to with MC though, but they're just smart enough to know NOT to intervene, because they know they would screw the whole thing up...

    The problem is not that the games are made in different programming languages, it's that they all have different feature sets...

    posted a message on Windows 10 Cortana Integration - Minecraft on the Tip of your Tongue
    Quote from kidpen»

    for the problem about java, why can't Mojang just basically copy and paste the Cortana code into the Minecraft code... just get extra voice acting




    No.
    1) That is highly illegal (Windows' source code is proprietary)
    2) They don't have the source code (and wont get it)
    3) Cortana is made in C++, while MC is made in Java
    4) It would be very time consuming for a voice actor to say every single possible word...
    5) It would make MC much, much larger in size
