What have you build? I've only managed to build an automatic door.

You can sprint now, and when you swing your sword at an enemy while sprinting gives you crits. And the archery animations/game mechanics look awesome.

The new update seems awesome :) Glad that there is a creative mode, no need for TMI or anything now.

Been a while since I really played Minecraft, but just recently I decided to load up a fairly interesting mod I had just recently located (RPG Mod, as seen here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/479017-173-single-player-rpg-mod-v14/) as well as Finite Water, by djoslin (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/259303-173-finiteliquid-v4-its-getting-rewritten/).

 

(and of course the Zelda sound pack mod, I never play without that installed now)

 

Overall, the RPG mod is... quite fascinating, actually. It does give me some drive to actually do things - for instance, I always tended to hide indoors at night unless I needed bones or something, but now since there's skilling to be done, I tend to stay outside all night. Surprisingly, I've only died twice (both on the same night, thanks a lot creepers -.-), and I've gathered quite a large number of resources already.

 

It does need some balancing, though - since I chose the Warrior class for this character, my Heroism skill (leveled via killing monsters) didn't get any boosts (although my melee/defence skills did get a huge boost), and as such is extremely annoying to level up - an entire night spent outside killing everything in sight only levels me maybe once or twice, and I'm only level 25 currently. My melee skill on the other hand, is level 146 (max level with the mod is level 200, with an Oblivion style perk system so each skill gets a little bonus at levels 50/100/150/200 - for instance, Mining gets % bonuses to mining double ore, but this is balanced out so you can't abuse it since you require level 150 Building in order to place iron and gold ore blocks back down to mine again).

 

Anyway, rambling again. Heroism skill is being a pain to level, so I'm thinking to go to the Nether and go ghast hunting to see if it'll level any faster (it seems like it leveled faster on skeletons/creepers than it did on zombies/spiders, so this logic seems sound...).

 

In addition to that, I'm going to reinstall the Aether mod once I'm fairly close to being done with leveling up, and I need glowstone to make a portal anyway (although due to the RPG mod creepers do drop glowstone blocks rarely, along with the usual gunpowder).

 

Finite Water makes things a bit more difficult for me, but I enjoy it - getting obsidian is somewhat difficult now since I can't just take a bucket of water down to bedrock and get it the normal way. I ended up making a temporary water tank and let the lake drain into that, then had that drain down into a pool of lava I had (very slowly) transferred into the main room of my lower mines area.

 

Of course, things never went as planned. I had intended on letting the water just flow down my stairs onto the lava pool, but when I released the water, I realized the walls weren't high enough on it. So, I rushed down in a panic trying to wall everything off (of course I was too slow, but still), and it turns out the finite water tank wasn't so finite - it just kept flowing, even though I had disconnected the tunnel that was draining the lake into it. On top of that, the water wasn't really turning the lava into obsidian that well, so I had to keep walling off parts randomly to try to get it to flow right...

 

Ended up with half of the floor dug up to build more walls to try to keep it from flooding outward more, and most of the floor that was left was under a block or so of water, after I had dashed up to plug up the hole in the tank. Thankfully, my efforts had produced 36 blocks of obsidian, so I'm happy with that. It did take a while to fix the floor and flooding, though.

 

Note to self: build a proper piping system and better tanks so I can do this easier next time I need lava/water in a specific place that isn't where they generated at.

What texture pack do you use?

normally i use SMP medieval revival 16x for castles and cathedrals ect., but the whole Citadel was built around the painterly texture pack, so i use that for building in Citadel, while it also looks very nice with the Medieval texture pack i mentioned before

Oh look! A download link for 1.8!

 

[hide]http://assets.minecraft.net/1_8-pre/minecraft.jar[/hide]

 

Just put it in your bin folder and replace your old jar. It's from the minecraft servers and people on 4chan and reddit have played it extensively (including me), so yes, it's safe. Also, Notch said he was fine with anyone playing it early for all of you who are worried about piracy or something.

Have fun!

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

I'm extremely excited for 1.8 just by what I've seen on the pre-release but I sure as hell hope they weren't releasing it any time soon. The memory leaks are back and out of control.

 

Though from what little taste I could get before the leaks and freezing made the game unplayable, I can wait contently if THAT'S the kind of content I have to look forward to.

You can kill them with your fists as well... They are also extremely sensitive to water, and take damage when they step into it. So if you look at one and your near the sea, go towards it.

I'm not really sure, but I know they only spawn at night, and only time I have seen them is on grass...

[bleep]ING AWESOME [bleep]ING AWESOME [bleep]ING AWESOME.

 

Died three times while trying to build my shelter...one with poisonous spiders in an abandoned mine. Endermen are scaring me, but, they're not that tough. :thumbsup:

 

I spawned in a huge forest with a winding river running through it; I see a big desert plateau in the distance, gonna explore that once I get established better.
