of which I PROMISE will occur on Sunday.
Anyway, 1.5_01 is out and my greenhouse is being naturally watered despite the fact it has a ceiling.
Should've thought twice before coding rain to fall through transparency eh, Notch?
Planes v2- Very cool way to explore a world quickly, can be a little laggy on slower machines due to chunk generation and the planes are a little hard to control in terms of altitude.
Poke'ball- Very cool, balanced, compatible with most other mods, love it. I CHOOSE YOU, CREEPER!
HumanPlus- My favorite, adds a whole new level of life to Minecraft. They talk, walk and stalk. I find myself building stuff to impress the AI.
"Feel my blade, Creeper!"
I'm gonna get started building an exact replica of New York and hack Zombie Spawners everywhere. Then I'll shoot one from far away so my dog will run after it into a dark building.
"NO MAX NO!"
Though, I wish Notch would pull Java out of the equation here before attempting SSK.
I've always wanted a pet slime, but apparently this time none of the more docile ones spawned... crap.
I had three chunks of the cave under my control within five minutes. The only challenge I saw was evading the Creeper waiting for me at the end of the chute. I'm gonna try it again sometime soon, but instead I'll jump into the gravel upon the world's birth. Meaning I'll have nothing but the pixels on my back.
Notch have mercy...
With the new redstone repeaters you can make TNT cannons automatic by putting four repeaters together to obtain a delay for the projectile TNT. (For you slower people, this does not mean FULLY automatic, it just removes the need for two switches.)
C418 also released "Minecraft - Volume Alpha" which contains all the songs in Minecraft and a few extras. You can buy it here.
In other news, I got raped by a Creeper. A-friggin'-gain.
In other news, Notch has confirmed diodes, repeaters, wooden half blocks, and beds will be in the next update. 2 Player Productions wants to do a documentary about Mojang as well.
E: Site's back up, downloading the launcher.
Notch also has a booth at GDC. If you go, make sure you have a blue shirt, so you can have this:
I see the sun go down.
And Rana, with her apples,
rises through the dark.
Zombies, Creepers, and skeletons alike
spawn in the night
to give quite a fright.
I stay in my home.
My sword in my hand.
I focus and listen,
I hear the spiders land.
Then, seven minutes later,
the mobs begin to burn.
The sun rises once more.
I know it's time again,
to mine some more ore.
And try not to get too pissed that newest update will be a little longer. ;D
Oh, and I may add something to the site that may make all readers piss their pants after playing MineCraft thirty-six hours straight.
Now, birds are apparently going to be added. They'll fly in flocks and maybe occasionally land, so stock up on ammo.
That's a hell of an introduction. I began playing cat and mouse with him. I'd move a few blocks over, and he'd try to follow by jumping. Just before the bugger could start ticking, I'd smack him in the face. When he worked up the nerve to try again, he'd get smacked once more. This process repeated about twenty times before the dried leaf pile rolled over and died. I added the wood, and began to ponder what to do next.
Oh, there's a branching tree I was working on harvesting, I'll go take it down. As I climbed over a small hill to get to it, I noticed something...
Reeds! Uh, I mean Sugarcane! I gathered up the crop, took down the big tree, and a few others before night set. Heading back, I heard a mob. But not just any mob, a zombie. I swung around, drawing my sword. I looked left, right, up, any other direction. But there was nothing here. Just a pile of sand.
This could only mean one of two things, there's a dungeon beneath my feet, or a cavern. I'll be sure to check it out in the future.
Once I got back to the house, I began laying some more wood. Once darkness had completely fallen, I had the framework done. Anyone here see what I'm doing? Once I got that done, I descended into the mine.
(To be continued in a later post, most likely the next)
I also took a few screenshots I couldn't get for Day 1.
