So yeah, I've had the worst run of computer luck in the last 3 days that I've ever had -.-

 

Main computer (with all my Minecraft saves) died when we moved it out to the kitchen to make room for the Christmas tree. Nothing we could do to get it to turn on, so... we installed all of the software for dialup on my laptop, and after about 15-20 hours of downloading essential stuff, managed to get it back online for playing Runescape, at least (Minecraft was already installed, so I didn't have to worry about that).

 

Power surge, came back through the telephone cord, fried the modem. -.-

 

Cue a day and a half of running around, trying everything we can (borrowing our grandmother's laptop and highspeed modem to try to get that hooked up, only to find out that we can't get it back here). Opening up both the recently exploded desktop pc tower and the old one (that also blew up earlier this year) to try mix and matching parts to see if we could get something to work. Nada.

 

Just today, my grandmother offered to buy us a new (used) pc for Christmas.

 

Took a while to get it hooked up, but everything seems to be functioning normally. Still dialup internet, but at this rate I'll take that, lol.

 

On the plus side, this new pc is more powerful than my old desktop and (still functional) laptop combined, so highest graphics settings for Runescape and Minecraft, here I come :P

 

Anyway, gonna be starting anew with Minecraft again. Not sure what I'll do, but I have far view distance and fancy graphics, and zero lag. /bragging

 

Probably just gonna start a new world again, and go from there. Might build something, might just play Runescape, who knows. I know I'll be trying some of my other pc games (The Sims 3, Oblivion, Neverwinter Nights 2, etc) on this to see how well they'll run.

If your computer couldn't handle Minecraft, how'd it go with Sims 3?

Well, it wouldn't run The Sims 3 on my desktop pc at all - video card incompatibility or something. It does run on my laptop - just not at top graphics or anything. Both could run Minecraft at varying view distances (desktop was stuck at tiny view distance, laptop could handle short, maybe normal view distance).

 

Considering my desktop pc was a good 4-5 years old, and the laptop is 2-3 years old, they did pretty damn good >_>

 

I'm guessing that both will run at top/near top graphics on this comp, though. I'd have to actually dig out my Sims 3 discs and try it sometime.

Discs? As in, plural? Christ, how big is that game?

If it weren't on a dvd, it'd probably be 3-4 discs >_>

 

Nah, what I meant was Sims 3, plus the two expansion packs and one stuff pack that I own.

 

Neverwinter Nights 2, for whatever reason, was on discs. 6-7 of them. >_>

Just started up Minecraft for the hell of it with a grass mod installed (plus Better Grass as well), and started wandering on peaceful.

 

I have found the most epic mountain I've ever seen, including when I was using BiomeTerrain mod:

Seriously, I have no idea even where to begin building here...

 

First things first, I must climb it.

There was an update today. Gift codes are now working, but according to Notch's dec 11th blog update, there was supposed to be another bit of content added before the game went to beta. Anyone know what's going on there?

 

EDIT: oh, and Link? I couldn't resist

^ Lol.

 

I've so far gotten 3 different people addicted to it: this game is like a highly contagious disease, or possibly crack. Pick your simile.

 

Does anyone have any strategies about the best way to get iron? So far, I've basically just been strip mining at 20 or more blocks below sea level, but I think that I may waste more iron on picks that I recover from the extraction operation.

 

Next up: a huge library built in multiple massive trees on an island floating in the sky, with a glass skybridge from it to my main fortress.

I might be inefficient for it, but I just create a [bleep]-ton of stone pickaxes and mine the [cabbage] out of everything I see.

I don't use iron picks for anything other than getting my first few diamonds, redstone and gold. Other than that it's all stone or diamond.

I tunnel really far down, then work my way sideways, going up a step every so often. I've got 2 stacks of 64 in about 3 hours doing that, but i'm sure there are better ways.

1. Find a big cavern system, they're more common than you think.

2. Bring food, swords and torches.

3. Kill [cabbage], place torches along the walls and big groups of torches or maybe redstone torches near valuable ores so you don't lose them.

4. Come back and collect.

Yeah I get most of my iron from big cavern complexes. Its important to locate and settle on top of one.

I really want to start a smp server with maybe like 10 other people... I think I might commander my sisters old laptop and use it to set one up. We'll see though, I need to understand it a bit more before that. If I do I'll open it up to anyone on TIF.

You know what? [bleep] spiders.

 

They're faster than you. They have a slightly higher jumpheight than you. The area you strike with the sword doesn't always register as you think it should (to see this better in action, attack a chicken). They're essentially TANKS, taking 4 hits to kill with a stone sword. Oh, and did I mention? THEY'RE [bleep]ING SPIDERS. WITH THE BEADY RED EYES AND THE FURRY BODIES.

 

They. Freak. Me. The. [bleep]. Out.

 

They're also the most (only?) commonly spawned monster in dungeon mob spawners. And I have 4 dungeons I've marked for clearing out in my mine. All filled with spiders.

 

ALL MY HATE, NOTCH. ALL MY HATE.

I know what you mean. These things are terrors in-game and IRL.

 

No loving god would allow these things to exist, and in such variety of horror.

We've run across a problem: I don't have a premium account :lol:

 

Damn my inability to have a PayPal account. Wait, we can use credit cards now? I think I'm going to ask for it for an early Christmas present then, since I feel bad about playing an indie game without paying.

Thanks to gift codes, you could get someone else with paypal to pay for you and you write them a check instead...or something.

Haha, I'll ask my friends if any of them have paypal accounts. I'm pretty sure one of my friends does. I'll just need to convince him to do it for me lol.

Same, if only Paypal wasn't so damn difficult.
