Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

WE HAVE A SERVER! BUY NOW! MINECRAFT!

MAP RENDER

When Minecraft goes Beta, the price is going to double. If you are considering purchasing the game, do so now! Beta happens when health is fixed which is in just a few days!

PM us for the server IP!
Some of us have gotten into the habit of chatting in Vent.
vtx14.defconservers.com
Port: 3860
Password fortytwo

WE GOT OUR MAP FROM EIN BACK!
If you have something on that map you want kept, tell us and we will copy it over. People have done a lot of work on the map we are currently running, so no one wants to go back.


Though boats and minecarts do kind of work, they are still pretty buggy. They won't load up chunks when you use them, so you eventually have to get out or get stuck in the void, and they don't go away. So don't get too excited about using them quite yet. I however will not stop you from planning things out and laying down track, just don't get excited and build 6 Flags.

Something to also keep in mind, Notch did a lot on the Halloween update that kind of made our lives difficult. He fixed some bugs but introduced others. I'm doing all I can to fix what problems we have but for now just know that things are a little fickle right now.


*bagpipes*

"Oh my god how do I do that?"

Well, you go to Minecraft.net and you can try the game out for free!
Not the full game of course, just creative mode. The game costs 9 Euro dollars, which is roughly 13 US dollars when I last checked.

Which of course is where the [strike]addiction[/strike]fun starts!

"Wait what is this exactly?"

It's a sandbox game, where you build stupidly ridiculous crap like that, mine forever, fight monsters and build a little home for yourself. There is multiplayer survival*, single player survival and creative mode. The Enterprise was made in creative mode. Keep in mind that this game is not finished, it's currently in Alpha still. If you want news on development you can check out Notch's Blog, the guy who made this. Music is done by C418.

Also do yourself a favor and don't try this game out during finals week.
I'm not kidding around don't fucking do it. D:

He tries to set up updates every Friday, but lately he's been trying to start his own business. I'll put in news from the blog in the spoiler below:
Spoiler:

As with all things you wanna be sure what you're hearing is also correct right? Some guys got together and made a thread where they gather information that they know and can reference as to plans Notch has up, so if you hear something crazy and you ain't sure, here's a good resource for you!

"Oh man this is awesome but how do I play?"

You punch trees. If it doesn't work just hold down the mouse button. You then turn the logs into planks. Which gets turned to a crafting table, and you can also turn them into sticks. And then it kinda spirals out of control. If you need help crafting, go here. Don't feel bad if you don't understand how to play the game, there's no real tutorial. If you don't know what something is, look here.

Here's the basics you will need to know for your first day and night.
Spoiler:

"OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT!"

It's a mob! There are all kinds here and some of them are more useful than others.

Pigs, Cows, Sheep and Chickens are all friendly. The worst they will do is trample your crops, but that is why we have fences!
Pigs drop meat when you kill them, which you use to eat to heal yourself. Cows drop Leather, which you can use to make armor. You can also milk them with buckets. Sheep drop wool which is nice for carpeting or your walls. Chickens drop feathers when you kill them and eggs when you just leave them alone, you'll hear a pop sound. They are useless for the time being, but we're expecting that to be changed in an update. Feathers are used to make arrows.

There are also hostile mobs.

Like skeletons that drop arrows, zombies that drop feathers for some reason, creepers which fuck your shit up and they also drop gunpowder. Kill them from a distance as they will explode. Spiders drop string, which you can use to make more cloth and to build a bow and a fishing pole. Slimes are recent enough that what they drop is entirely useless, which is just more slime. Be careful killing them because you'll just have two smaller versions. They live in caves near bedrock.

Some more tutorials you may find useful:

    Were do I go to play with people?

    We have a number of Penny Arcade servers up. Most of them come from G&T but we have one of our own and it's new! If you would like the IP to join, PM me or any one here and we'll give it to you. It's run by Ein who owns the server, (Thank you! <3) I am also an admin and it's moderated by Squall, Artreus, VALVejunkie, Raneados, rfilyaw, and Dubh. You can't build immediately though, one of the mods will give you building permission. It's to keep people from fucking our stuff up.

    We run a number of Hey0 plugins, some of them being WorldEdit, Mixxit, BorderLands, llamacraft and Craftbook.

    Also, we like to change the colors of our names. Usually admin is red, and mods are a light blue color but to avoid confusion we have put symbols in our names. Admins now have a ~, a tilde in front of their names, and mods have a @. If you want your name to have a color then look at this list here. It only changes what the color of the name is in the text field, not above your avatar. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/images/4/4c/Colors.png

    The users that play on the Social Entropy are the mods and myself of course, plus:
    Hiartbill
    Twixxo
    TankHammer
    apricotmuffins
    Campion
    Vann Diras

    Garick -- DragoonDark

    SOCIAL ENTROPY SERVER RULES:

    1.) Don't be a fucking douchebag.

    We're moving onto a new Map, but for those of you who just weren't quite ready yet or those who fear new things we've saved a copy of our old map. The picture of it is located here. To install, download the rar file and extract it. I've named the folder SocialEntropy, but you want to rename that to either World1, World2, World3, World4 or World5 so you can load it up yourself. The map file is huge, so be in store for a bit of a wait.

    The G&T folks have done some crazy things. Like build Rapture and Columbia. There's also the Underdark which a lot of us are from before we got our own server. They're building a new version and it's going to be entirely underground. If you wanna check out those servers, head on over to the G&T thread and ask nicely and they'll PM you the IP.

    We also have a Steam group! PAMiners!

    Where can I see cool stuff?

    You can browse this sticky in the minecraft forums.

    We also had a LP during the month of July that I guess people ran out of free time for. I'm not aware of any plans made to start it up again but perhaps we will again one day. In the meantime, here it is.

    July 2010 Minecraft LP
    July 2010 Minecraft LP Continued

    Something Awful also has a thread that may be worth browsing.

    If you need help deciding what to build, this thread is loaded with ideas. This one too.

    Youtube also has a ton of videos to check out as well! Also if you need help building something, it's full of tutorials as well.

    "I want to modify my game"

    Well, first of all, do you have any idea the size of the rabbit hole that you're about to jump in?

    Personally I divide them up into 3 groups.

    Server Mods
    Client Side Mods
    Texture Mods

    I've already listed what mods we run up in the above post, but here I'll go into more detail.

    Server Mods
    • Hey0 is kind of the big one we have running, all the mods we have listed are plugins to this mod. It makes running the server much easier for me.
    • Mixxit is a mod that lets us do damage to animals and lets monsters do damage to us. There is also a PVP aspect to this mod, but before I install that bit I want to hear from you guys about pvp is going to work.
    • BorderLands is what keeps the map a certain size, so it doesn't strain the server. We have a huge map so we're ok but any larger and we're in trouble. Our map is 2200x2200 blocks in size.
    • CraftBook is special. It does a lot of things so I'll go into it in a bit.

    We have a test server we use to test out the mods for compatibility, if you have a mod you wanna suggest then tell us! Just keep in mind that any mod that introduces new block items is not allowed, they will force people to crash.

    Client Side Mods are just tools you would use in single player, you can do just about anything else that you would want in a server mod, but in single player. I don't have a list up, but a good source to find them would be this thread here. http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewforum.php?f=25

    Texture Mods change the look of your game.
    They are fucking awesome!

    In order for 32 bit textures and higher to work properly, you need to install this mod first. It's also open sourced and it comes with Better Grass if you want it. Link here.

    They're pretty easy to install and edit around yourself too, but there are a number of texture installation tools available that I will list in a bit. When you download your texture pack, the textures are located in a file called texture.png. If you have photoshop and GIMP you can mess around and recolor or completely design your own pack. Don't use mspaint or something cheap like that, because there are transparencies involved. Here is a very indepth guide to installing texture mods for OS X and Windows 7, but you can also read the guide I wrote below.

    How to install:

    Download the texture pack file. It's a winrar file.
    You'll need to find the .minecraft folder. It's hidden so turn that feature on and let your computer do the work. When you have found it, make a back up it somewhere save and then open it and then open up the bin folder. Look for minecraft.jar and open it up with winrar, just right-click and go to Open With...

    Now go back to your downloaded texture file. Extract it and look to where the files are and copy and paste that into your winrar window.

    I browse this forum regularly for updates for my favorites.

    I've got a few here listed already but here's another list for you as well. This list changes often and if you find a texture mod yourself you would like me to post here let me know!
    Spoiler:

    "What else can I download for this game?"

    Like, a lot? I don't test out these programs so if they destroy everything or something then tell me ok?

    Map and Inventory Editing Tools
    Maps and Save Files
    Map Viewing and Mine and Mineral Revealing Tools
    Skin Collection and Editing Tools
    More Building Tutorials and Guides
    Minor Texture Mods
    Save Management
    Miscellaneous Items of Interest

    So, CraftBook.
    It does a number of things.

    1.) When you remove leaves from a tree, sometimes you will get an apple!
    2.) You can make gates, cauldrons, light switches and and elevator!
    3.) When you right click on a bookshelf, it lets you actually read something, and when you remove a bookshelf you get the block back. We can also edit what the books say.

    Gate
    To make a gate is very simple. Make a wall sign near a fence gate with the second line as [Gate]. To toggle the gate, just right click the sign.
    iDH6j.jpg
    66Of5.jpg

    Elevators
    Just make a sign with the second line as [Lift Up] or [Lift Down] and right click it to move between levels. Note that there must be a sign directly above or below the sign you right click on (depending on which way you want to go) in order for the elevator to work. Use [Lift] on the second line of a sign if you just need a placeholder for that purpose. The first line of the sign can be used to say the floor name (it will be printed to chat).
    6bwxf.jpg

    Area Light Switch
    This will toggle on the lights in the area on/off (about 10 units away, 5 units up/down). Just make a wall sign with the second line as [|] and have a torch above the sign.
    5tPmc.jpg
    tNTrR.jpg

    Cauldron
    Make a cauldron and get items yourself instead of bumming off the admins and mods all the damn fucking time. We have only one recipe listed, and it's displayed in the picture below. It gives you grass. We need to decide what the other recipies should be, I'll put a working list in the spoiler below.

    Did my fire crash the server? Maybe there needs to be a limit on how many trees are burned :P

    Edit: probably not apricot, if the server is restarted and not many people log on, it should finish doing the fire calculations itself. And then re-stabilize.

    I'm editing up the OP now cause I was bad and I didn't do it last thread.

    I can't get the server to respond! Gonna have to force quit it, sorry but we will be losing some progress and we may have some corruptions somewhere. I really don't want to do this but we backed it up last night so if it gets THAT BAD we can fix it.

    Or, to take it one step further, don't force the server to do all those fire calculations. If the fire is an issue, send me the current map file, I'll let it run it's course on my machine in ssp, and then send it back.

    Yeah, it like immediately went down. I did see the lack of fire before it did though.

    Edit: this might be a "pack it up and send to bill" deal... I mean, the trees that were on fire initially were all back, leaves and all, so I doubt it's any lingering affects from the fire. It looked like a complete roll-back, but maybe having to kill the process left some shit in memory that's messing with it?

    I loaded up the old map in single player. Boy was it weird seeing everything offline. It was even more weird when I almost died walking down the cliff to my hovel (and seeing the old pagoda in one piece.)

    But, success. Got a shot of my cool swag I had intended to bring over. Stare and drool, ladies. All legit (some of which was Ein's special treasures.)
