    posted a message on Please help... Woodland Explorer Map trouble

    Seems no one ever answered this question. I play on XB1, and got a woodland explorer map from a villager. apparently, the resource packs mess with the maps sometimes, so if you can't see a structure, put it back on default. I will say though, if you get one, you could probably have more fun using it as fuel in a furnace to smelt iron. I traveled 5000+ blocks west and 15000(!) blocks south to get to a woodland mansion. All told, there was ONE treasure chest with nothing more valuable than a few pieces of iron. SOOOOOOO not worth the effort. If you really need the totem of undying or another loot drop, and it's not a million miles away, maybe its worth the trip.

    Quote from undefined

    Minecraft is a wonderful game however, I feel like we, players of Minecraft deserve to be rewarded for even downloading the game as it is them (mojang) that it will benefit. All I have to say is that we will eventually get bored of the game if there is never going to be another major update.


    Thanks mojang, Richard smith


    P.S.- I MEANT ALL EDITIONS


    This attitude right here is why people dislike millennials. I bought this game for $20 when it came out and have gotten literally several hundreds of hours of enjoyment out of it with dozens of free updates. This game makes it possible to create entire new worlds limited only by your imagination. Games like Call of Duty charge $65 for pretty much the same game annually, and make you pay another $50 to get updates with re-skinned maps, and they get boring after 3 months. If you're bored with Minecraft, you'll never be happy. It appears that you want a new update every three days and they should mail you a check for the "honor" of you playing their lowly little game. Be sure not to trip on your cape on the way out, your highness. LOL

    posted a message on Purchased texture pack not available

    I have been having the same problem with the Greek Mythology Mash-Up Pack, the Fantasy Texture Pack, the Natural Texture pack, and all of my skins. When I click the "X" button to Sign In, a window pops up that says "We are connecting to X-Box Live to sign you in to your account." After a few seconds, it disappears. Nothing else changes, and it never signs me in. When I click "Y" to try to purchase coins to rebuy the resources, it says "We're unable to connect to the store. Maybe check your internet connection?" WHICH I HAVE DONE, and NO, THAT IS NOT THE ISSUE. My internet is fine, and works for all other games. And there is another window behind it that says "You have zero coins," and "Coin purchase is not available on this platform yet."


    GREAT JOB, Mojang. Release a major update that pretty much breaks the game visually for me (I can't look at the default texture pack for very long without getting a headache because of the lousy resolution) doesn't do what it does for other platforms, and then tries to blame me when your lousy store can't manage to connect to X-Box Live.


    PLUS, I'm out the purchase price of the update, even though I was later told we were supposed to get it for free.


    SUPER unhappy.

    I would LOVE to see banners as I am an asian build enthusiast

    I love using my design skills to create logos, so banners are on my list of most anticipated adds too. That and customizable skins.

    To my understanding an update to one of the consoles is mirrored by the same update across all consoles, with the exception of some specific bug fixes which might only be presented in a specific console.


    So to answer your questions Yes, regardless of console platform which the screenshot appears, all consoles will be given the same update.


    Awesome! Thanks for clearing that up.



    Secondly, with regards to specifically Guardian fish the one from the first screen, couldn't think of a scenario where they would tease a specific component of a updated feature without providing the entire feature, unless they only added the Guardian as a creative item, which I still have a hard timing rationalizing. My guess is that yes we will see the full enchilada, from Ocean monument / Prismatine blocks / Sea Lanterns etc.



    Well, we got Acacia and Darkwood blocks before them actual biomes, and I know there have been other examples of getting part of a feature (Villages come to mind) without getting everything (villagers, trading, etc.). Maybe my understanding of how those features developed is flawed, but it seems like we've gotten partial features before. Hope I'm wrong and you are right!



    Lastly, while I do see a potential for servers (down the road, plus did you see the new tab at the top of the mmain forum page? SERVERS :) )



    Yeah, but servers for console would be epic (or even just an increase in player cap would be welcome).



    on apersonal level I would have a hard time entering in a string of info given the current input system without a keyboard.



    Smart glass is a life saver, but I get how not everyone can afford a laptop/tablet. I know the guy who runs my server would LOVE it, so I'm really just jumping on his bandwagon for that one. Thanks for the A's to my Q's!

    OK, I'm confused. I've seen three separate screen shots (10/16, 11/6, 11/18) since the last update. Are they all features that are coming to all consoles, or are they only for the systems they're shown on? November 6th screenshot is shown on a Vita, does that mean it's only PS consoles that get armor stands, mega taiga, etc., or are all three screenshot features coming to all consoles?


    If they are all coming to all consoles, then this is a freakin' HUGE update. Does the inclusion of the Guardian fish thingee necessarily mean that we're getting all of the features of that update? (temples, giant guardians, sponges working, new aqua-whatever blocks, etc.) If that's the case, and they're coming to all consoles, then this is the biggest, most exciting update since creative, if you ask me:


    Mesa biome and blocks, ice biome and blocks, ocean temples and mobs, new fish, new flowers, bunnies, armor stands, new enchanting, a ton of new blocks... what am I missing? Savannah? Roofed Forest? Are they included? This is pretty big. Give us servers and command blocks and we can die happy!

    Higher player capacity. 8 player limit on a server is DEATH.

    posted a message on Printing Press: Would This Work?

    I ran a 360 server with some other guys and B & Q would have been a game changer. Imagine spawning into a world and getting a copy of a guide book that explains the rules of the server, gives them an idea of where to go first, lists notable locations, etc.


    SO much easier than signs and a dedicated forum.

    Ok, so mixed results. You CAN copy and paste via Smart Glass. It will only copy 255 characters, tho, so if you use the "Artistik" printing press method, be sure to break your text into similar sized chunks for easier use. No line breaks, unless I am missing something. I was able to produce three identical 5 page books in roughly ten minutes, and I am certain had I prepared the text better it could be done quicker.

    posted a message on Printing Press: Would This Work?

    I am not at my XB1 right now, or I'd try it myself. I own an iPad and have the Smart Glass app. Can you type something in another format (such as a Minecraft Forum Post), copy that text on your iPad, and paste it using Smart Glass into the Book and Quill text field? Has anyone tried this yet? I will try this when I get home and post the results, if someone hasn't beaten me to it. If it works the way I think (hope) it will, you should be able to mass produce written books, you would just need to sign them each individually.


    Stay tuned for results!

    I can tell you that I purchased the map pack based solely on the map that came with it. I am impressed with the scale and size of the builds, and figured $3.99 was a small price for something that they worked so hard to create. This is not like other mashup packs, where the structures are all exterior with no guts. These things are HUGE, and they are detailed both outside and inside. This one blew other mashup maps away, and the texture pack is beautiful and detailed (check out the lava!) I think it was well worth it.

    So long as it doesn't just run roughshod and change all the biomes in existing worlds, new biomes are a good thing. I think they might be ahead!

    I'd love to see LARGER biomes. The larger worlds are a welcome change from the 360 version, but so far, every map is very patchwork. Fifteen different snow biomes, a dozen small deserts... I'd love the option to scale the biomes with the map scale, so we get large rolling plains and huge deserts.


    Perhaps the ability to select more than one biome for a flatland?


    Also, I don't know if this is even a possibility in the PC version, but I'd give my left nut for the ability to copy written books. Multiple copies of a guide book would be a great way to bring new players into a server.

    Gamer tag - ARTISTIK (Kenn)

    Age - 41.5 (never too old to enjoy Minecraft, am I right?)

    Place of Origin - The War-torn Kingdom of Tik


    Bio - Artis of Tik (shortened to Artis Tik) was a loyal and faithful servant of King Majess, considered by some to be the bravest knight in his service, leading two legions of soldiers. He soon took a wife, Fantass and had a daughter, Enthusias, and was on the verge of being granted land and a title for his numerous victories in battle when King Majess was challenged for his throne by his daughter, the Crown Princess Optymis, and her suitor, Lord Sarcas, on the grounds that King Majess' ambitions had kept the Kingdom of Tik in a state of constant war with its neighbor, Zym.


    Artis faced a crucial moment when his faith in the King was shaken, and he sided with the Princess, which committed his legions to her side. Without Artis, the King was dethroned, and executed. Shortly thereafter, Artis learned that it was the machinations of Lord Sarcas that had kept Tik at war with Zym and it's Queen, Antagoni, who had used Sarcas to great effect in tricking Optymis and usurping the kingdom. When Artis confronted the clueless Princess, she accused him of treason and ordered him to be arrested. Artis escaped, but his wife Fantass and daughter Enthusias were killed in reprisal.


    The Kingdom of Tik was soon conquered and abolished by Zym, and has fallen into despair as its wealth has been plundered. A land devoid of hope, their people have come to regard Artis as the great betrayer of the last great ruler, King Majess. The Princess, for her perhaps willful ignorance, has earned the nickname Blind Optymis of Zym, while her suitor was made commander of the Armies of Zym, with the highest possible rank of Major. With nothing left to go back to, Artis fled into the countryside and eventually came to a port. He boarded a vessel and came to Aurafall to escape his past. He has found comfort in worshiping Col, a God of Creation and Nature, and has become a peaceful man.


    Ambitions - To find a quiet spot and live a simple life where he can recover from his past mistakes, atone for his sins, and maybe find a new life among a new people... Perhaps one day he will earn redemption by returning to Tik, banishing Antagoni Zym and her minions, Major Sarcas Zym and Blind Optymis Zym, and avenge King Majess Tik.


    Notes - If accepted, I'd like my character to start as a hermit living in an isolated woody area in a tiny shack. He'll be a huntsman, if a title is needed, but he will slowly integrate himself to society as he comes to terms with his past sins. BY the way, forgive my horrific punning in Artis' origin story. I like to have fun. I'm sure Sir Richaaard and JacksAssV1 will tell you anything you might want to know about me. We served as moderators on the Atlas and Renatus servers for XB360. You can see an example of the Lore I have written and view some of our builds at http://renatus.fullboards.com/


    Thank you for your consideration!
