    there would be no point in the game if your stuff stayed there for longer there would be no point. The whole point of survival is not to die. Personally i think your stuff should disappear instantly so you actually have to not die.

    Also mind the :SSSS:


    I wouldn't necessarily mind this if the game actually functioned properly. The trouble is if I'm hauling diamond around in the middle of nowhere and suddenly I turn into a pink mist coating a crater due to an invisible creeper, or other mob, that's a bit unacceptable.

    If I choose to fight something, or I see it coming and fail to protect myself, or even I don't see it but *could have* had I turned around, that's one thing. As it stands, I've encountered as many invisible mobs as visible, and it's just a tremendous pain in the ass.

    This method of payment might bring a lot of success to notch. People with no credit cards or PayPal accounts could simply mail in money. =( a lot of other online game producers offer this.


    How many gaming companies ask for cash payment ? Unless his game gets released into stores for sale, it should remain as is. It's too much work for Notch to have to deposit cash, cash checks, etc. when he can just have it set up that you need to use a credit card or paypal.


    Pay By Cash isn't a concept, it's a company. Again... they accept cash, they do not pay their clients in cash, ergo there is absolutely no reason why this SHOULDN'T also be an option.

    From what I am aware, Pay By Cash is a service where you mail THEM the money and they electronically send the money to Notch. So no, he's not going to have wads of greasy bills in his mailbox. I don't see why anyone would have a problem with this, given that it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference to anyone involved, aside from those who could then use it to play the game.

    posted a message on Cactus Farm
    Just out of curiosity, as I haven't encountered more than 1 cacti on any world I've played on (I tend to build up/down not out). And that one was brought to town by another player on my server. What is the deal with a cactus? Why would people even care to farm them. Is it just for their damaging properties? They're not particularly pleasant to look at.

    Yeah don't waste your time on this one unless you're Deadmau5.

    posted a message on Both camps of Notch Defense/Rage are wrong.
    The problem is, the majority of "defenders" regard anything that isn't sycophantic praise as an AFFRONT TO OUR GOD.

    The fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter how his day has gone, or how he's feeling, or how hard it is, the relationship between Notch and the masses changed fundamentally the second he started taking money. He's not just "that cool indie developer" anymore, people have expectations (reasonable or unreasonable) and when he doesn't live up to them, they are within their rights to get upset about it. If he didn't charge for the game I'd be right there with the NDL telling people to **** off and whine elsewhere, but those days are no more.

    It may sound biased on my part, and maybe it is, but I think the ball is in the court of the "notch defenders". There will always be complaints about the game, and those complaints need voicing, but they do *not* need to knee-jerk react to each one of those complaints. I think if that end of things came to an end, we'd see the discussion get a lot more civil around here.

    I believe the saves are separated into folders rather than files, but I mess with the server end more than the client end so I could be wrong. But yes, moving that folder/file is all you need to do if I'm not mistaken.

    posted a message on Search for notches greatest secret
    The "secret" is evidently that he made a custom skin for Deadmau5. Check the other thread on this. Pretty lame.

    EDIT:


    Quote from Chato »
    I wonder if the secret actualy is greater than those mojang employee clan cloaks.
    Notch maybe just told us that to make us more curious...


    I'd be surprised quite frankly. There's nothing that I've seen that establishes this precedent. I think it much more likely that these were just giveaways to his buddies. *which is fine*... until he implied that there was something else that the community could experience which turned out to be nothing at all.

    posted a message on The Search For Something Rare... BEGINS!! - Found
    I don't know. This just seems like kind of a **** move. He knew what he was starting when he put that in the notes, but he let it go anyway. People got all excited, started searching their world, searching the .jar file and generally getting pretty worked up about what sounded like some cool new feature...

    Only to find out that he just made something moderately cool for one of his buddies. Wow.

    I try to be fairly objective about things (with varying levels of success), but how can anyone honestly feel that that's "awesome" or "epic"? What kind of childhood have you people had? I can just imagine Christmas where Dad says "hey there, I've got a surprise for you!" and then when you open all your presents, he proudly exclaims "I bought your mom a necklace!".

    You people sometimes act like the abused wife defending her husband. It's quite sad, really, that people can become so attached to a brand name (and let's not mistake ourselves, that's all this is) that they're willing to pick up the sword and defend every last action to their last breath.

    It's cool that he did something like that for his friend (or whatever Deadmau5 is), but it would have been significantly cooler in my eyes if he had just said "yeah and I did this" like he did with the Mojang cloaks. It's not something that affects anyone, but at least it's made clear that we don't need to go looking for some mythical cool new feature.

    I don't think anyone can say I have been unfair. I gave him repeated informal warnings, and a private message. I told him what I expected to be changed and was entirely reasonable about it - on 4 separate occasions in this thread alone.

    For those wondering, my PC has no pirated software/games (Thanks Steam!), and no pirated music either (Thanks Spotify!) so I think I can safely say I've not been a hypocrite. I always give plenty of warning before taking an issue further.


    Hey, if you warned him privately first, that's perfectly fair and I retract what I said. I had just assumed, perhaps incorrectly that the beginning and end of your dialogue with him was on this thread. And my "hypocrisy" thing wasn't leveled at you, but the people who were getting in line acting all outraged as if copyright infringement isn't something that the average internet user engages in at some point or another.

    Quote from HonestFlames »
    I think the problem here was the utter cheek of the OP to steal from the same community he professes to care about (i.e., us lot) and then bare-faced flaunt that theft. Mental visions of a 'what, me?' expression on his face when someone points out that that's their TV he's trying to sell them and that he's the one who stole it.


    There is that, and I definitely understand that. As a general rule my initial regard of someone under the age of 15 is at best, derision. I just know how nonsensical people get in regards to copyright infringement and tend to take the side of the "little guy". However; in this case, it would appear that PhonicUK did the right thing and I overreacted.

    As for everyone else, I'm sure you've all never downloaded an MP3, or a movie at any point (certainly not at this very moment), copied a CD/DVD, or anything of the sort, right? I mean, I'm SURE the righteous indignation is entirely unhypocritical.


    There's a difference between copying and plagiarizing.


    So laws that you have broken are ok to break, and laws that you haven't broken are wrong to break? Is that basically what we're saying here?

    Isn't stealing stealing? Please enlighten me.

    I get that it's your work, and you don't want it copied, but wouldn't a more mature way of going about this have been a private message, or email, asking for credit to be given, or asking it be taken down that way? I don't know, it's not for me to say, I just lose a lot of respect for someone who goes from 0 to bringing down the LAW without any intermediary steps, and in a public fashion. You're certainly within your rights, but there are ways of sorting this out without making yourself look like the RIAA.

    I believe it's in the %appdata%\Roaming\.minecraft folder...

    You should see a folder called World or something, which you could copy to the corresponding folder in another machine. I don't remember precisely, I might be off. I did this when I ported my SP map to a new MP server I had created a few months ago.
