Title: Minecraft
Post by: Blurr on 2016-04-03 13:27:52
My old computer won't turn on anymore and I forgot to pull the save data for Minecraft from it! Stupid! Now I gotta start all over again! Oh well. It's fun playing anyway. XD

Anyone else play?

It won't turn on anymore? That new replacement battery finally run out of juice? But if you have an account doesn't that save all your data?

I play minecraft. I got mine for free. It even updates too, which is pretty awesome! I got a sick map, it's pretty cool. Unfortunately all my resources are soooo spread out. I literally had to make bridges across vast expanses of ocean and make multiple houses.

We should all multiplayer at some point! It would be so much fun!

But wow. That's sucks. Oh well, that's part of the fun right?

Return the battery you bought and say it doesn't work, get money back. Then buy another one use it until battery runs out to finish transferring the rest of your files.

The Battery itself isn't the problem this time. I think its the charging port thats crapped out. So now even if I do get another battery, what good would it do if no power can get into it?

How is the game on console?

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Silverwing on 2016-04-05 04:08:06
I have long considered buying Minecraft for a console, but I don't know if I should.  The computer version I know is better, plus I can mod it. 
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-04-05 07:44:12
Well, if you get a new battery, it should come charged. That way it gives it enough juice for you to finish transferring leftover files. Then just repackage it and return it, get money back.

My sister has the Xbox version. It took me 30 minutes to figure out how to start a new game and why it wasn't working (I had it set to online when I shouldn't have because we didn't buy the online function for her). After that I was too frustrated to even play so I left it and just went to go play on my laptop.

Our ongoing Minecraft Server's homepage (http://ajmstudiosnet.wix.com/ajmminecraftserver).  Currently down for some maintenance, but ongoing.  lol.  Our server also has a wiki (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/2nd_World) we are building. 1st world (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/1st_World) was our first server, then we moved to the bigger and better 2nd world (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/2nd_World).  Our server is full of governments, countries, history, and tons of other stuff like that for us nerds. 

Some pics of various places in our world below.

There really isn't a whole lot difference in the PS3 version or the PS4 version I would imagine would be from the PC edition. When they announced awhile back that the fighting mechanics would be different, I figure the PS3 update would be no different and I'd get the same thing. (I haven't played it in a long time since I'm back into pro-wrestling games again lol)

I really like seeing others stuff though
Title: Re: Minecraft

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Anyponedrawn on 2016-04-08 13:47:58
I remember how proud I was surviving that first night in Minecraft.  The "newness" of it all and trying to find food, wood, wool to make a bed.  I remember when I finally got sheers to pluck wool from sheep, I was thinking I was king.

When I converted my dirt hut into a wood hut, I was so happy.  Hiding in my house, hearing the hisses and moans outside made me think I was so lucky to be inside.  Watching as the moon went down and the sun went up.

The first few Creeper explosions around my home bugged me so much, I patched them with dirt.

Fishing.  When I finally got to fish, I though I had endless supplies of food until I made my first garden with a fence... OH fences.  I fenced off areas around my house and kept the monster outside of them.  I got my armor and livestock, and made my house a home.  I felt truly accomplished.  No game has ever made me have a sense of pride and property quite like Minecraft.  I would place it as one of my favorite games of all time that moved me.

When I finally played multiplayer for the first time, and had friends, mind was blown. :)  Such an amazing game.  Games that provide feelings like that only come maybe once or twice in a lifetime.  I would love to go back and play the game as if it were my first time again.  Start fresh and have the same excitement as I built up.

I was playing my modded survival. I had 29 diamonds, found the end portal, and was going to enter it soon. I had put all my items into a modded chest that could fit the amount of items I had. The next day, I was going to add to my command block world without mods on, and joined the survival world by mistake. Now all my items are gone, and I can't get them back because I didn't backup the save.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-05-09 20:38:52

On a similar note, I cannot open Minecraft, and now, the best world I ever had is probably gone.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-05-09 22:54:33

For LP, I would advise getting a real version of the game.  Like purchasing it, if you like it enough.  :)

No it's a tall building in the sky. It's dangerous to make as you're like over 80 blocks high to make it. And water is involved so if you fall down the chute you could drown. But yeah. Made it. And monsters are pushed by the water down the chute and they fall to their deaths. And I have little warp things and transport them to a chest to store all the goodies they drop.

I had a friend build something very similar to this.

In what is now known as "1st World (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/1st_World)," I had a friend build a tower that seems similar in nature, Leapingriver.

It was called, Jonville Tower (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/Jonville_Tower) (pictures linked).  It was an early hub for westward expansion, but as our server grew, we started following more realistic design trends in planning and development.  1st World grew massive, but then we moved to what we called, 2nd World (http://ajmminecraftserver.wikia.com/wiki/2nd_World), and it was even bigger.

what do people think about the changes Microsoft are making on the game? Are the more frequent updates good, bad? I hear you have to pay real money for skins and to join servers now, which would be really really dissapointing to me...
Title: Re: Minecraft

^ I would hope that isn't true!  I'm not sure though.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Rainberry on 2017-07-17 22:28:17
So I did research.  You can still download any Minecraft skins you want and upload them for free at any skin resource, such as the ones linked below.

http://www.minecraftskins.com
http://www.minecraftskins.net

You can still play on any server for free.  If your friends know how to set up a server, you can still do it all for free.

Nothing has changed except new content. 
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: RainySunshine on 2017-07-17 22:32:00
Nothing I have noticed has changed on Minecraft.  Same game, new features, updated launcher.  No asking for money. 

I've felt the updates have been less frequent.

Yes.  Mojang still does all the work.  Microsoft covers advertising and will probably dictate when they need updates.  For the most part, Mojang still is autonomous.  But I am sure the mass marketing of Minecraft is all Microsoft's doing and all the spin-off games by Telltale. 
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: PartyPony18 on 2017-07-22 20:36:28
Ok, cool ^^ it probably works better that way anyways. x3  has anyone played the story mode telltale games? I've heard that the story is interesting, but I have never gotten a chance to play them myself.
Title: Re: Minecraft

I'm surprised to see someone who hasn't played the game before. :)  You won't be able to understand the lingo and jokes (memes) people do 90% of the time without playing Minecraft.  And like you said, it is pretty much a mandatory skill to have for work now. ;)

Microsoft has unveiled, MINECRAFT DUNGEONS at E3 2019.  And I gotta say... it looks promising!

The trailer showed a lengthy look at gameplay from an overhead perspective, along with very Minecraft styled menu screens to equip items and chow down on a turkey leg. The trailer concluded with the announcement of a Spring 2020 release window. It will feature 4-player local and online co-op.

That's what makes it unique.  It has as big a fanbase today as it did years ago, and it is resurrging.

And today there was ANOTHER Snapshot.  They are quick.  This latest has something about a way to respawn in the nether.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Silverwing on 2020-03-25 15:09:07
Some wonderful new additions such as a way to set your compass to actually work!  Plus the creepy new mob called the Strider.



This Nether update is really making this game so much better.

Mojang may be secretly changing underground caves on purpose... or not on purpose. This fast talking Minecrafter may have discovered something that no one else has really brought up.  Between snapshots, caves have changed in this newest switch from 1.14 to 1.16. 

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Anyponedrawn on 2020-04-01 12:11:52
Mojang did some weird April Fools stuff.


I'm going to search Sneeze and I will take some pics.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Anyponedrawn on 2020-04-01 12:51:18
So I tested it all out. First I generated a normal Minecraft world using the world seed, "sneeze."  It took me to an all jungle biome  which reminded me of a sea of snot for some reason, the way the vines dripped down from the sea of green tree canopies.

(https://i.imgur.com/uhTmxbw.jpg)

I plunked down a portal and grabbed an "infinity book" from the "infinity library."  I wanted to see what would happen first so I used the default book and threw it through the portal and walked through.

(https://i.imgur.com/LZkwGQT.png)

I was taken to a world land with a sky of orange and clouds of sailing ships.  The ground below was far below and foreign, so I stayed within the ship I was transported too.  I think pulled out a book and quill and wrote my first realm to go to.  I typed "Sneeze."  I threw the book into the portal and walked through. Then the weirdest thing happened that never happened to me before.

(https://i.imgur.com/1dSa1oe.png)

My Minecraft game crashed. Seriously.  First time that's ever happened in playing this game since the Alpha days.

So I reloaded and tried again.  I made a book that was called, "Sneeze."  The portal turned blue.

(https://i.imgur.com/1ohq5us.png)

I walked through and....

(https://i.imgur.com/fQArZnD.jpg)

The world sneeze was a hellish landscape of blue fire and redstone blocks with turtle eggs strewn about.  It was a strange world indeed.  The blue fire made massive lakes and waterfalls and the the dry land of reddish blocks seemed to all be spherical.

I decided to write a new book and throw it into more portal.  This time I wrote "Girl Sneeze."  The portal changed into 6 different rainbow-ish colors and I jumped through.

(https://i.imgur.com/zIORiJQ.jpg)

The world of "Girl Sneeze" was a weird one at that.  Fairly normal and flowery world above, but the lower sediments were pink... and I realized we were floating in an endless abyss of soupy blue atmosphere!  Worried I might fall, I carefully walked around my floating island realizing that underneath the landscapes were mine shafts.  It was a strange world. 

(https://i.imgur.com/wZtxz9a.jpg)

I ran back to my portal and wrote a new book, "sneezing."  I entered the newly formed portal.

(https://i.imgur.com/Uvm0Aoh.png)

The world made me think I was in someone's nose!  It was kind of a gross yellow with a yellow hue in the sky.  The land was filled with Enderman. I think the ground was yellow wool and the higher it went, there was blue and more yellow.  There appeared to be a high ceiling as if I were in a cave.  But not wanting to get hurt by the Enderman I typed one more location.  "PSF."  Short for our lovely forum community, "Personal Sneeze Forum."  I jumped in.

(https://i.imgur.com/YLbDWnQ.jpg)

I appeared in a weird green void and realized particles were falling from a ceiling that appeared to be stone or concrete.  The land below was devoid of fauna and seemed martian like.  It was an unknown landscape, but I had appeared near the roof line of a giant cave and could not jump down.

It was a weird experience I will continue to play with.  A very fun Minecraft April Fools joke!

That is fascinating.  I wonder if I did the same things, if the seeds would appear the same?  I mean... they should. ;D  Very cool man.

Wow!!! That is HUGE!  Oh my gosh.  I can't believe they've made the Nether so different and those bastions are actually amazingly detailed and cool.  Like underground cities that will actually have Piglins in them!  That alone is the coolest thing about this update.

Wow, dimensions?  That's pretty wild. I was thinking when that update for April Fools came out it might be kinda neat... but it would totally change the game forever if that did become official.  It would ruin the main game to some degree, which worries me.

Jeez, I haven't even had the time to fully explore the Nether update personally. I can't believe how much free content is getting released in updates, especially considering the proliferation of DLC these days.
Title: Re: Minecraft

To think I bought this game like.... a decade ago... and we all are still getting all this stuff for free. :D  It's quite phenomenal.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Anyponedrawn on 2020-10-06 20:47:27
It's been amazing how much we've gotten and how long they've supported this game.  You'd think eventually they would want to make more money with something else. I guess that is why they have spinoff games.

I enjoy it, but I don't have enough friends to play. The ones that I do have are inconsistent. Not online enough to justify paying to play online via realms or a rental server. Now I just get online to mess around with mods and experiment in creative mode.

It's a very good game to play when you're spent or bored; very relaxing and immersive. I always start new worlds though because I get bored after I've built up my base and stockpiled endless resources. I find it excited to get back to basics.
