    It should. I mean I don't want to buy a phone just to play Minecraft. That's absurd! I want to play it on an actual gaming system, meant for gaming.

    posted a message on Minecraft may be going a little out of control with these snapshots/updates
    I've been wanting more decorative blocks since Beta 1.3. And ever since I got Terraria, I've wanted it even more.

    IMO the more ways we can build in Minecraft the more replay value Minecraft has and the more creative the Adventure maps will be. Don't think of it as cheesy or unfitting or pointless, because every bit added is contributing to the replay value of the game. Minecraft needs more pointless things in the game. I know its strange to say this, but its true.

    The more abstract non purposeful things put in the game are the things that add the most replay value. Example: Each new block/placable object added to the game can amount to hours of thinking up ways to use it/ build with it when a new mechanic/item will only amount to minutes of intermittent use unless it is a game changing new feature. We need the devs to think creatively when they add things to Minecraft, and really I can't see how these things are changing Minecraft anymore than its already changed.

    posted a message on Sideways logs - GET RID OF 'EM!
    I'll just let my insight on the OP's issue as it is a valid complaint. It was just presented in a completely ignorant way. Log placement would be simplified and more efficient if there was either a orientation key that when held down or preferrably toggles by a single press that would affect log and other block orientation placement. It would essentially disable inverted/non-standard placements on objects, until it is pressed again.

    Accept that the game is evolving and becoming more complex. Give positive feedback for future improvements. Complaining about certaining features existing without proper solutions leads to confusion and we all suffer because of it. Be grateful that new features are being added to the game as Mojang could stop updating at anytime regardless of the current state of the game.

    *facepalm at this*

    I can't place logs correctly anymore, the game is ruined. Notch would never do this. Ever since Jeb took over, the game has just gone downhill. I mean who in this game would want to write in books and have multiple world types. We should fire Jeb, and plead Notch to come back, because these weekly snapshots actually have new content and we wouldn't want new content. We need Notch to complain about every little idea added to the game, delaying the process by months. :Notch:

    posted a message on Updates Ruining Server Gameplay... PLZ READ
    1, I don't understand why you're refering to some trade value that doesn't exist in vanilla Minecraft to state your point. It may have ruined the balance for whatever mod your server is using, but that's hardly a representation of everyone in general.

    2. The original enchantment system made it impossible for the casual player to get any enchantments. The current system is better for more people than the original system.

    3. PVP is still awesome in Multiplayer servers. Maybe you should check out what enchantments and potions can do in a PVP fight.

    4. Building collaborative projects has always been more important than actually surviving. If your server is inactive because they have everything then your guests are doing it wrong. They should be building things with their resources not hoarding it away, expecting the game to give them a reason to hoard more. The complainers about having too much iron come to mind. "We get way too much iron from caves, I have so much of it. They need to reduce the amount of iron that forms". Why don't you try building with it?

    posted a message on Wither boss too hard?
    I come back to the forum and the first thread I see is this. Come on, everyone was bitching about the game not being a challenge and they finally deliver a true boss battle that requires enchanting and people still aren't happy. BTW the uncaging thing is supposed to make it unable to be farmed, because that's what people are going to do instead of fighting it normally.

    Deal with it.

    posted a message on The problem with Dungeons
    I believe Minecraft needs special items that you can only get in places like dungeons. I'm not referring to things like saddles and future obtainable items. I'm talking about special decorative items, lore related things, special tools or arrows, special statues, things that don't and wont have an alternate way of getting except from dungeons.

    I'm taking this idea straight from Terraria. It's really exciting to not know what unique item I may get by looking in a dungeon chest. Looting should be exciting. Instead the dungeons in Minecraft just feel disappointing, and the strongholds are even worse.

    posted a message on What on earth is the ssp/smp merge?
    I have to mention this. Isn't Bukkit remaking SMP from the ground up? It shouldn't be the same SMP by the time these changes are complete. I think we should trust Bukkit's ability to create a stable experience for everyone.

    posted a message on What do you think should be the main focus of 1.3?
    Jeb most certainly has his hands full with 1.2. So many interesting bugs. It reminds me of Beta, but in a good way.


    Anyways It's most certainly going to be the API update, but that doesn't mean that we wont receive weekly AI tweaks and new features along the way. The end goal will just be the API. I just hope Jeb will decide to fix the major bugs in 1.2. If he does oit the Notch way and makes people wait until 1.3 to get a stable game, then people are going to RAGE.
