    so i paid the $13 for this because i enjoyed minecraft before and i love sandbox games, i can't for the life of me figure out the ingredient to make a torch, obviously its a stick and something else D:

    Coal and stick, coal on top. Use the Minecraft wiki or be prepared for a lot of frustration!

    Hey VALVEjunkie I've seen in the other thread that you're quite good with importing pictures, could you explain to me how this works?

    Also this is quite cool: "You can place a painting and then delete the block the painting is in front of and the the painting will still stay in place (...) you can walk through the painting (...) secret study (...)"

    oh its easy, just press PRINTSCREEN and then open your image editing software of choice and press Ctrl+v to import the picture and then just save it

    then upload it with imageshack or photobucker or whatever

    also, that painting trick goes away when you exit and come back, they stay in place for a second and then fall down :?

    Thanks!

    That video is nice, but don't be fooled by the peaceful music, in the underground section the only sound you will hear is the constant moaning of zombies locked up behind the walls.

    so I looked at the development blog and this guy seems to be updating at a furious pace. I personally have finally gotten tired of DF after a few years and the way it's heading.... based on a really old version I vaguely remember i think this is something I should get behind

    Crap... I don't think it was me that did it. I was digging and I hit this water source... but as far as I could tell it only flooded this little enclosed spot. Then like 5 minutes later everything started stalling and the whole world flooded... but I don't think it was because of my smaller flood. was it? What happened? (I also had fully contained and stopped the flood by that point, mind you: all the water was stopped up with sponges and the hole was plugged)

    I got banned... but I don't think it could've been me that did it! I had fully contained the small flood I caused before this big one hit.

    I don't know! I don't think it could've been me. The whole world got flooded... but before that, I had a small flood that I contained and patched up. I had just finished patching it up like a minute or two before this big flood came in... I don't think it could've been mine, because it would've happened right away right?

    All I know is I was digging into what looked to be an undeveloped mountainside, I wanted to make something to add to the world... and as I was digging I hit this random underground lake that someone must've put in... I plugged up the hole immediately and went about putting sponges everywhere, but as far as I could tell it only flooded the chamber I'd dug out and a small valley next to where I'd started digging. I got both the cave and the valley completely water free using the sponges, and then all of a sudden the whole world covered in water. But I'd been already doing my cleanup for like 5 minutes at least, and had already completed said cleanup. Unless it doesn't work like that? I'm confused.

    Flock3, he saw me cleaning up in fact: he can cooborate the limited extent of the flooding that mine caused.

    Or at least I think it was only limited, unless there's some kind of delay somehow or something... but that'd be a really long delay. I was cleaning up for at least 5 minutes I'd say. Heck, maybe even 10 minutes, I don't know how much time had passed.

    The valley was this little enclosed area with trees in it... it was on the other side of a mountain that was near a corner of the map. I can't remember what was in the corner. I think there was a floating castle nearby, but I can't remember for sure.

    I was totally freaking out, because I had just finished cleaning up my flood and suddenly the world was covered in water... honestly, I don't know enough about the rules of the world to know whether something like that could happen and it was just delayed reaction to my flood or what...

    It was at a mountainside that was near a corner of the map. I think it was near the floating castle if I remember correctly, there's a mountain near it and that's where I was digging. I can't remember any other major landmarks other than that and the little valley with trees in it. By little, I mean like perhaps 50 x 50 squares... I could show you if I could get in there.

    I really, really hope it wasn't mine that caused it. It looked to me like I'd cleaned up everything without any harm, but I just don't know now.

    EDIT: is there an easy way to fix it/a backup for this kind of situation? =(

    okay, thats not specific enough

    was it next to the big FORTS MAZE sign or the great deku tree?

  • VThornheartVThornheart Registered User regular
    edited July 2010
    I think it wasn't near the forts maze... I guess it wasn't far from the deku tree, but the deku tree is kind of central. oh! If I remember correctly, I think it was near a big golden structure in a corner.

    The mountain I was carving into was flush against the side of the map if that helps for locating purposes. If Flock3 is on, ask him to show you where it was: he flew down while I was working on cleaning up the water, he knows where it is... I think I could show you where it was if I was in there or if I could see a map of the world, but I don't think either of those options are possible right now. =( Hopefully Flock3 remembers where he found me.

    that's a far cry from Fleck0, pretty shaky recollection of the scene there! :P

    Though I did indeed run into him while flying around after building a little wang shrine in an underground part of the maze. Shortly after that I got D/C'd and went about my internet business so if there was some Noah-esque flooding I either just missed it or was disconnected by it.

    mainly, although Vthorn clearly has a broken, deranged mind, he was just jumping around in a pit, he's no griefer

    the area was around the big forts maze sign

    Ah! lol, my memory is terrible =(

    Aye, when I was jumping around down there what you saw was me putting down the sponges to clean up the mess I had made... but the mess I'd made (which was almost completely cleaned up when you dropped by) was nothing compared to what just happened. I did no further digging into the mountain after that initial flood that you saw me in the midst of cleaning up. =)

    Too much sin. If you'd been better you would've gotten the message to build an ark first.

    I saw this game and thought it looked cool. I know people like the dwarf fortress ascii, but DF could be put into a graphical engine like this and benefit from it I think.

    lol, apparently!

    We did find the hole that caused it I think. It was from that same reservoir I hit earlier: someone was apparently digging on the other side (whoever was making the big yellow and red brick platform outside of the mountain). So yeah, a definite word of warning to anyone digging in the mountains: be wary of what's in there.

    I'm thinking that if I do any further digging expeditions, I'll close all surfaces off behind me from now on before I start digging just in case. Hopefully everyone can take the same procautions. =)

    go to the help forum and look for the topic that says mac os x video walkthrough. It's on the first few pages. I couldn't get it to work either, but that video sorted it for me.

    I would pay $20, $30 or even $40 for this game if:

    1) The client would be stand-alone.
    2) The maps would be saved locally.
    3) I could download maps from other people/connect to other people's maps.

    Right now, as I understand it, it's mainly web based and run by one guy. That, plus the fact that it's very early alpha, makes me wait, but it does look extremely good.

    PS. I tried to contact the author regarding how to play it, because on my Macbook Pro, the webpages where it says you can play it are empty in both Windows and OS X, and I can play other Java games just fine.

    1) This exists, just not for the old version that we are currently running multiplayer.
    2) Same as above
    3) Downloading other peoples maps is already in, this is how they are doing a semi-multiplayer game over in SE. Connecting to other peoples maps is the next intended feature, hopefully coming out sometime in august.

    2) they ARE saved locally but I'm not sure of the OSX directory
    3) you CAN download other peoples maps and he is working on survival multiplayer as we speak

    Yeah, I saw that link posted above on how to get it to work in OS X... not convinced though, because a lot of people in that thread can't get it to work. Also, you need to log in, still?

    My worry is that what if the guy drops off the face of the earth tomorrow? Then the time I invested in the game will be for nothing, and I currently don't have that amount of time to spend.

    tbh the mileage I can get out of just the alpha for me is definitely worth a tenner. I'm running both clients, the alpha and the classic mode for multiplayer, without any problems apart from a slight hiccup with the classic version. Have you updated Java on your mac recently? Maybe try it in a different browser?

    I honestly don't have time right now to get mileage from anything, so I want something that's solid and that can last, hence, a nice stand alone package I can tinker with whenever I want, even when my laptop is not connected to the internet.

    So, I guess I'll be one of those who pay 20 bucks for it. But hey, some has to, right, otherwise he won't make any money! :)

    Some things you should know, if you're new to Minecraft.

    -There's actually two Minecrafts. All this talk of floods and servers is Minecraft Creative, where you get an endless supply of bricks to place and remove at your leisure. There's a third-party client you can get with built in cheats (noclip and flying, if I remember correctly), and it's usually all about freebuilding. Last time I played creative, it was entirely free. It might still be - I have no idea.

    -Then there's what's currently dubbed Minecraft Alpha (and until recently Minecraft Indev & Infdev,) which is the currently in-development survival mode. This is where you use tools, deal with monsters, look for gems, build traps and goose around in other cool ways. Notch has a development blog up and he recently started working on this thing full time. So there's new stuff showing up every single week. Alpha is currently singleplayer only, but multi is in the works and limited early testing has already begun.

    This is probably my best ever use of ten euros.
