May 21, 2014This definitely needs to be addressed. Before I got the PS3 version I had played the Xbox version at my cousins house. When I got the PS3 version I thought that, like most games on both, R1 and L1 on the PS3 would do the same thing as RT and LT on Xbox. The R2 and L2 buttons don't respond quickly enough for the kind of things players do in Minecraft.Posted in: MCPS3: Suggestions

It's always bugged me that note blocks can only play short notes. In the long run, I hope they overhaul the note block system so you can play different length notes by using comparators.
However I'd take short choir sounds over none at all. Minecraft composers would just make do, the same way they do what they can with short notes from other instruments.
Or what if note length depended on pulse length? I know that would mess up a lot of note block stuff now, but people will figure it out.
Or what if note length could be controlled from the note block itself, that'd be the best option.

If the PS3 edition ever has exclusive mobs it'll be after the PC edition, Pocket Edition and '360 Edition get them most likely. I like the ideas, and they'd be great in all the versions, but please no exclusives.
Now hold on, maybe not mobs that aren't drastically different from what we currently have. What if they had exclusive mobs that were based off of characters from console exclusive games? Say mobs based off of Ratchet and Clank for PS3, and mobs based off of Halo for Xbox, just as an example. But they shouldn't touch the PC version like that, keep it pure. And they would probably have to be DLC anyway.
Also, they said that from now on the Xbox and PS3/4 versions would be developed together, so neither would get anything sooner than the other. And when have we known Pocket Edition to get anything before Xbox Edition?
Aug 20, 2013One: Shouldn't this section be titled Minecraft: Playstation Edition as it was confirmed for multiple Playstation platforms.Posted in: MCPS4: Discussion
Two: As more comes out about this edition, say it's the same as XBMC, would the two sections be merged into one umbrella Console Section?
Three: Thanks for reading this.
Aug 10, 2013Right now the tricky to obtain Dragon Egg only serves as a trophy for beating the Ender Dragon. Along with the difficulty of getting it after it spawns, its uslessness is cause for many to avoid moving or trying to obtain it, but if it were to serve a purpose, wouldn't more people try to get it? In my opinion, probably, but I'm just one guy. My personal idea for a purpose it could serve would be to unlock another dimension. It could be a dimension only accessible from the Nether. The Nether is stylized like Hell/purgatory, so why not make a Heaven dimension that is only accessible after proving your worth fighting a dragon.Posted in: Suggestions
SUMMARY: My main point is the prize of he Ender Dragon fight should have a use. The Wither was added after the Ender Dragon, but the Nether Star has a use! Why dosen't the Dragon Egg?
Jul 22, 2013I'd like to start by telling you that this post will be mostly theorhetical and examinatory.Posted in: Discussion
Now for the theories! We all know that Minecraft is an extremely popular game and that some concepts in Minecraft are more popular than other. As with music, in Minecraft there are almost infinite possibilities, but the things the users find popular tend to revolve around similar concepts or styles. In Minecraft these can be maps, individual builds, and video series just to name a few.
As most things go, individual people have their own preferences for certain types of what I'll call product. This product (the maps, builds, and things I mentioned earlier) owes its successes to popularity, but will we ever run out of ideas close enough to the most popular ideas to succeed?
Any thoughts on any of this?
P.S. This whole thing was inspired by an old VSauce video on YouTube about popular music and if we would ever run out of new music.
Jul 21, 2013foxjcon posted a message on Wanting to make a parkour map, but need some advice.Hey, I saw your post and that nobody had replied yet, so I wanted to help! I have a few basic suggestions to help get an understanding of parkour maps.Posted in: Maps Discussion
1. This may seem obvious, sorry if it is, start out your map with less difficult parkour and gradually get harder.
2. Definitely add checkpoints! You don't want to add too many checkpoints but too few and no one will want to finish the map!
3. Mix it up! No one wants to play a map that has the same 30 obstacles in a row then switches, so mix it up and add some variation, some series of the same jump are okay, but I would suggest as a general rule don't put more than 5 in a row.
4. If you use pistons and redstone, which I suggest, make sure there's a way to skip it or toggle it on and off.
Hope that helps get you off to a good start!
Feb 21, 2013When you use a command block command targeted at @a[...] where the ... Is a coordinate range it looks for all players but if you were to use something like tp @p[...] where ... Is one block would it target the nearest player to that block? I'm wondering because I want to make a 3 block wide door way that teleports players through, because it has to do other things too, and I only want players trying to go through to be teleported. Would this work? Do you think it should work? Any feedback is appreciated. I can do it another way, but this way the syntax would be shorter.Posted in: Redstone Discussion and Mechanisms
Dec 19, 2012Wouldn't it be cool if someone made an operating system that its only functionality was to play minecraft. I'm thinking of like a secondary operating system that can be edited from a pc's primary operating system. By edited I mean adding texture packs, mods, or plugins, from the primary operating system. Similar to ChromeOS in its limited functionality but focused on minecraft. I think that would be great, booting up my computer going straight to minecraft in a few seconds.Posted in: Suggestions
