    posted a message on Realse date?
    At E3 they said it would be this winter, that's why the speculation is mostly December and January. As of Minecon it's been pushed back to next spring.

    posted a message on Are you getting Minecraft fo xbox 360?
    I'm in the "yes, because my PC is crap and I can't play Minecraft on it" category, but picked maybe because I might upgrade by next Spring, and if I do I'd prefer the PC version.

    Why are you guys talking about notch? He isn't even making this game, idiots.

    Notch said on his blog that he's the lead developer of all versions of Minecraft. It's just the programming that other people are doing.

    I think there was talk of being able to mount maps and clocks on walls.

    posted a message on Breeding Sheep- No point til they regrow wool.
    Jeb_ tweeted once that sheep regrowing wool would be necessary once animals were persistent, with wording that implied it was just common sense to him. It's safe to assume it's in the works.

    posted a message on 1.9 then 1.10 then what?
    Quote from Skelator424

    But since Notch is an Indie Dev, he doesn't have managers cracking the whip over minor little details like that. And as long as HE keeps it straight, it doesn't matter all that much, it just looks sloppy.

    If it's just because he's an indie developer, why was Blizzard using the exact same system five years ago when they released patches 1.10, 1.11, and 1.12 for World of Warcraft?

    posted a message on 1.9 then 1.10 then what?
    Quote from megazero2000

    I'm sure it has been said, but decimals don't work like that. 1.10 is just 1.1, and is in no way after 1.9.

    And if it were a decimal point, that would be relevant.

    As it stands, it's like someone saying a URL is a grammar failure because it has periods after incomplete sentences.

    posted a message on Only one stronghold per world?
    Judging by this picture going around Reddit, the one stronghold per world thing is a bug that Jeb_ hasn't bothered fixing yet.

    posted a message on Sheep not Despawning
    They're currently working on animal farming. Basically, all animals will be permanent (so you can, say, have a herd of cattle as a feature of your home), they'll breed (Jeb_ got permission to use the baby animals mod), and sheep will grow their wool back.

    posted a message on How biomes should be generated.
    Quote from Chicago633

    I have absolutely NO idea what you're talking about in any of this thread.

    Terrain features are generated separately in a certain order. In 1.8 it's noticeable that, for example, strongholds are generated before ravines, because when you find a ravine running through a stronghold the stronghold's architecture will be as though the original terrain is there (floating doors, etc.). The OP is saying the order should be changed to help things fit together better.


    Cool , now , code it :smile.gif:

    exactly , you cant , so mojang is better.

    What exactly are you trying to say here? That the order in which terrain features are generated is a technological limitation, and anyone who wants it changed needs to provide a way how? Or that you need to be able to code games in order to recognize that one feature might be better than another?

    posted a message on Mob grinders may stop dropping Items after 1.8-Yay or Nay ?
    I think punishing the player for killing enemies with a trap is a terrible idea. Building traps to kill enemies fits perfectly into the theme of survival Minecraft - you're building a clever device to help you gather resources. The game would really suffer if that was replaced by simple combat grinding.

    "Since the Adventure mode will be replacing Survival" :angry.gif:

    Really?! Even the Minecraft Forum doesn't get it?

    THIS IS ADVENTURE UPDATE, NOT MODE.

    Yeah, you know the forum's in a pathetic state when even the mods jump on the misinformed panic bandwagon.

    How are people still throwing around the term "adventure mode"? Jeb_ used the term once or twice talking about a mode for doing adventure maps, and Notch dismissed almost immediately that the adventure update had anything to do with it.

    These changes are to survival mode, like every other change since the game moved past being a tech demo.

    Quote from Foul_Ole_Ron

    How long does it take to release this update? It's been nearly two months, of "coming next week" (or the week after that, or the week after that, or the week after that....)

    You've been getting your information from a terrible source. The plan to demo 1.8 at PAX was part of the original announcement, so it would have been stupid to expect its release before then.
