Here, I make tower.

The developer guy was inspired by Infiniminer, but wants to take the game into a more Dwarf Fortress direction.
He is currently well at work on multiplayer and adding tons of new tiles.

The only problem I see is that the software doesn't come in some package we can take away. It's on a Java applet on his site.
Trust me though. So far, this game has a much larger map with way less of the performance hangups.
It is in alpha though so you may have issues. If you can't run it, be sure to get the latest...  Java thing. I think the page should tell you if you're out of date or whatever.

Things I enjoy:
High framerate, great and stable performance
Huge freaking map. Looks like an RPG overworld from the sky.
Water
Digging!
Top-down shadows
Placing raw dirt blocks will eventually grow grass on top
Bright blue sky, vast ocean. I was getting tired of being on a near pristine space asteroid cube thing in Infiniminer.
None of that "This is probably the last major update..." dread. ¨_¨
By that I mean the guy is working on making it more interesting now.

Let's keep an eye on this one.

More crap--

You know, with a big enough map and save games, we could all set up our own little fortresses, determine borders, engage in politics, perhaps even wage war.  Like a 3D NationStates.

fps changes dramaticly when you see more blocks...i think water blocks drain more than normal ones too : /
compare this one (http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q169/Celdur/mine1.jpg) with this one (http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q169/Celdur/mine2.jpg) and you can note the diferance

anyway you can see my sexy tower there...well maybe not so sexy, its pretty small and lame but i was experimenting :P

(http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q169/Celdur/mine4.jpg)

also made a boat...yay

concrete sail or not...its still pretty cool

7000 exactly Celdur! Nice!

Anyway, this is pretty cool, seeing as it is much larger. It would be very interesting to try and setup a game based on empire building using this setup. Plus, it looks like this guy is going to be putting a lot more into it, including farming! That's pretty awesome!

Press '6', plant it under water.

See that box of air around the plant? Thatís because liquid is block based.

That will happen to ANY odd-shaped block, including stairs and pillars and thin walls. I can do strange hacks to render the block as if it was submerged in the liquid, but Iíd rather not since itíd still stop water from passing through it.

How do I deal with this? Do I even have to?

He's got an answer form on the blog there. If anybody has any ideas how he could overcome this problem, send it in.
It'd help tons.

Post by: emmet on May 22, 2009, 06:52:29 am
Playing this and I noticed that, while making a massive mineshaft at the bottom of the map, (that had become flooded with water halfway through) and later running into lava, the lava slowly kind of ran down the mineshaft , becoming rock as it touched the water. It completely turned the shaft back into rock.

Sweet.

Sounds like he has a plan.

I'm growing fond of this databyte idea

Ever since I started this project, Iíve had the idea of an extra byte of data per block. Itís not a very original idea, granted, but it gives me a lot of room to do cool stuff. Itíd fully solve the water problem as I posted about previously as well.

The downside is that it doubles the size of the maps, and that level polling might get a bit slower, but the advantages are numerous.

Hereís an example of the bit layout in this byte:

0-2: Liquid type. (8 values)
..0 = air
..1 = water
..2 = lava
..3-7 = reserved (oil? goo?)
3: isFlowing (needed by the liquid code)
4-7: Block shape (16 values)
..0 = full
..1 = half north
..2 = half south
..3 = half west
..4 = half east
..5 = half up
..6 = half down
..7 = slope north
..8 = slope south
..9 = slope west
..10 = slope east
..11 = pillar up/down
..12 = bar east/west
..13 = bar north/south
..14-15 = reserved

Blocks that can only come in one shape (the bushes for example) can use the last four bits for custom data, like keeping track of the age.

Age being important for the farming functions of course.

For those of you, like a friend of mine, who aren't totally fond of Java, the developer said this on the TIGSource forum.

Yeah, download client will come once it hits beta. I want to force people to use the applet for now since it's probably going to be the buggiest one.

So there you go.

So, will our maps be saved in the upcoming updates? I have been making a really good one and I want to make sure it saves.

Also, what do mobs do besides run around aimlessly?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on May 22, 2009, 07:43:55 pm
Nothing yet. In a seperate game mode, we will one day have to fight back monsters and stuff from wrecking our farms, castles, and whatnot.
Maps can be saved now I believe.
Right? That was what his latest update was about. You just have to register.

I'm sure after everything takes off he'll decentralize this thing and it'll be more like Infiniminer.
At least I sure hope so.

Also, bit of an update here.
It's not currently in the game yet I don't think.

Today I accomplished (other than finishing up the loading/saving):

Sand and Gravel
Gold, Iron and Coal veins in stone
Trees with a trunk and a Canopy
Clouds two tiles above the maximum build height
Controller support (only tested it with an xbox 360 controller so far)

and

Absolutely no multiplayer code at all. Oops :D

You have a jawa? Think I could buy a couple droids off it? Maybe the sand crawler, no?

Also, imagine if this evolved into a hybrid of Infiniminer and Dwarf Fortress, where you used your blocks to build buildings and things, then did the chores (planting, harvesting, blacksmithing, etc.) with your friends on your server! Then you could fight back the local monsters and terraform the environment using tools! All it needs to improve upon to make it more than the sum of its parts would be an improved map system.

Or  am I just suffering from Spore-syndrome?

Hey Celdur, I modded your castle a bit, mostly just little things like structural reinforcement and things, but I did make a small hall. Maybe if the roof is heightened, it could be a banquet hall. I'm still not entirely used to the way Minecraft works. I hope the author implements more Dwarf Fortress-y things soon (i.e. farming, actual mining, livestock, enemies, economics, etc).

Perhaps map trading and modding is the most simple form of multiplayer in this game.

He posted another interesting update on his blog.
http://notch.tumblr.com/

We have fast-moving water.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmFipEZxlew
Though it flies out at such a speed, you'd think he'd busted the base of a massive dam.
But whatever. He's on the right track. I just hope he makes it so water drains down and out rather than replicate in adjacent spaces.

He made some notes about multiplayer and level's size/optimizations.
Apparently sand and gravel will move down if you dig beneath them. I just wonder if it could potentially smother you.

Yeah, I like hazards.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Beastosaurus on May 25, 2009, 08:43:35 am
Alright, I had a change of heart.  :D

Remember my banquet hall? Well, I thought Celdur's fort was lacking a water supply (an important resource for a besieged fort), so I converted my prototypical hall into a primitive water system. There are large stone stairs leading underground into a cave system. These caves are shaped into a U, with water outlets at both ends. The openings are too small for anyone to fit through, and the current prevents small-scale contamination for lasting.

I'll make this fortress defensible yet!

I'm just a very defensive builder, is all.

http://minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=Kalebmcc&id=1

^- My mod. The walls have been strengthened, the entrance to what I assume is the quarry has been changed, my aforementioned water system, and some minor changes to the bottom of the towers.

I'm trying to think of a good way to implement farm patches, considering they'd need sunlight. I thought building them atop the towers would be the most logical answer, but I had a hard time finding a way to get back up to them. My attempts at this are not saved to the above map.

Title: Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I thought the implementation of the pillar was a little clunky on my part, but it just seems so strange to have that overhang just floating without any support.

It will be far more awesome though with the addition of sound effects and multiplayer.  I want to found nations!

Notch asks, "Does this look good?"

It's a random offset effect for all blocks.

@pie: why is the farm build ontop of the towers? >.> that just doesnt make any sense

also: what do you mean 10-20 occupants?

and @gauph: i think i like the dirt ect more as random and the stone/wood ect. just square

that was my awnser too

Hmmm. Maybe we should have a few threads on Minecraft. One for each map.

You could try that. I was hoping this one would be more for general discussion.
Maybe open up your own threads in storytelling and roleplaying? I mean, you're basically making a little world with farms and houses and stuff.
Anyone who wants to jump onboard your thread can.

Otherwise, you could just keep doing what you're doing here, only organize it a bit better.
Don't want a whole bunch of merges sent here later turning this thread into a cluster-f.  :P

To be honest, the random offsets looks kinda bad :-\

I said so too. Maybe with some refinement, it could look good. He's adding in slopes and stuff I think, so..
As it is, everything is way too wonky.
Maybe if the players could level the land? Soil isn't always perfectly even, but constructions should be.
So if you dig away dirt and replace it, it should be replaced evenly. Any and all constructions on uneven land will automatically even them out.

Or something. Otherwise, he could incorporate physics and we could get a nice demonstration of what happens when you build an unstable structure out of rock.

Well, after he nails down all the main game elements, we can move on to beta.

The more the merrier.

I was just exploring the GamingSteve map (Celdur's modded map), and I came across this:
(http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/1521/minecraftbug.png)

There's nothing stopping the water from continuing to flow, but it just stops there, in midair  :-\
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Beastosaurus on May 26, 2009, 06:21:42 am
I think the problems with water flowing aren't that it won't flow, per se, but that it hasn't had a chance yet. If I recall correctly, Notch mentioned that the way water flows in the current alpha, it has a chance to generate so many more cubes of water per game tick.

In his unreleased version (apparently, the first beta?), he has changed this so that viscous liquids like lava flow in this manner, but liquids like water just flow (like you'd expect; they just fill in any extra space accessible).
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Didero on May 26, 2009, 06:29:48 am
Yeah, I know it's just an alpha version. But I thought he already added the new water flow mechanism to the public version, but looking at the videos on the blog, it seems they're only implemented in a newer version 0.0.14a, while the public version is 0.0.13a_03.
I'll guess I'll just wait patiently for the next version then :)

when you get on the bottom of the first stairs (the underwater one), remove the 2 tiles below you. dont forget to replace them immediately after you fell down or else the whole place will flood! :o

When you enter the room, you'll notice there's 2 tiles with a different pattern then the rest. remove them and you'll be able to continue to the final room.

Yeah definitely. This is also from Alway's save.

http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=Josasa&id=1

I expanded my underground lair in 3 different sections, creating 3 water blockers in case of flooding. Filled in a part of a cave that was in the way and built 2 underground houses in the side of a wall...

Holy carp Xeno! You stumbled into one of my tunnels randomly with that little building you created! That tunnel that you dug all the way to the bottom leads to one of the caves I stumbled upon while checking the surrounding area for my Atlantis. Those 'stone' tiles you may have noticed were put there by me and block out the tunnel I dug from one end to the other! That leads straight to my city!

Post by: Josasa on May 27, 2009, 02:35:32 pm
I noticed that when I was exploring (after I saved, so it couldn't have been me, twice!). Although it also looks like your name room has an opening out to the sea which could have flooded it as well.

If you are going to recreated it you should have a system where it goes down, comes up just enough to block out the water and then falls back down. Similar to a (rJ) with the top of the r and the bottom of the J meeting up and blocking out the water. Then you can continue on and have a construction setup that doesn't have water in it.

I baked up my own fort! It's built off a cliff, with support pillars. I plan to add a dock, farm, and water supply soon, as well as sleeping quarters and a mess hall.

It seems after the update, spawn points are standardized, so you'll have to walk a ways to get to the fort. There are only two entrances, if memory serves, so look around a bit.

Post by: Beastosaurus on May 27, 2009, 08:37:01 pm
Alrighty, using Pie's mod of my fort, I've further improved my base. It should feel much more spacious and open, and at the same time more solid. Next on the agenda is a water system. Once that's done I'll begin work on the port. Following that, we'll need to section off the land the fort is on top of to make it into an island.

Also, I built a tree near a huge cave system's opening. Check it. It's all natural, too!

I did not plant a house, and we thus cannot have all three.

A few guidelines for my save: Add to the fort only, don't build houses and such off in the distance. Don't build on dirt, build on stone or bedrock only. Be careful. Don't tear down the work of others. Try to keep things looking nice. If you can leave dirt on top of your addon, do so; it looks like the fort is built into the hill, a nice effect. Use portholes and parapets sparingly.

You can.  Build the outer walls of the room, sealing out the water, then fill the room with blocks, then remove all the blocks inside and it will remove the water with it.

Alright, I'm done for now.

Here is the most recent map! (http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=PatMan33&id=0)

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm basically connecting all four corners of the map. I've got three of them more or less done (as well as two tunnels dug and finished. I would like to request that the one remaining corner be left empty for the final part of phase one of my plan. It's the corner by that very snazzy castle that someone built. I'll probably go back in tonight when I have some time to finish off my last station and dig the remaining tunnels.

Once I get all four corners connected I plan to bring them all together at the very center of the map (or as near as I can get, someone may have built there already). So yeah, that's my plan. Hope you enjoy it! Save often and don't flood my tunnels please. (they run along the very edge of the map) :P

Post by: Josasa on May 29, 2009, 06:11:47 pm
Patman, just a heads up. I was trying to continue you tunnel since I can't do much else on this huge map (too low FPS) and as I was extending the tunnel I hit a water pocket when following your same design for the tunnels. Of course it's not saved, but if you do try to continue the tunnels you will hit a water pocket. It's almost exactly halfway between the map, a little bit farther than it is closer.

To clarify, you would be able to dig the middle section (the one that is 3 squares high) with no problems, it is the 'right' section (when facing the wall below the house) that will eventually hit the water pocket.

*phew*

Spent a lot longer down in the tunnels than I expected. Ran into a large lava patch and had to deal with that. Got another leg of the system duh and finished to a shine. I think there's two more to go... maybe one... I forgot.

Here is the most recent map! (http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=PatMan33&id=0)

stand back! the community map is mine!

http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=Celdur&id=3 there...the 3rd wall you see isnt done >.> and it will become the entrance to the whole thing

and a question: the 2nd wall (the one with the angel),
should i do it the other way around? fill all the empty spaces with blocks and make all the places with blocks empty
it will make it more full and complete that way i think...

this is the 2nd i made im still not sure if ill keep it like this

Alright, new map is in: http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?user=Magenti&id=1

The starting location now takes you as high up as possible, this so you can fully explore what is out there. For instance, I didnt even know there was a second huge island.

The tree of elvenborg has grown up from the former roots of shlamenstab. Legend fortells of a secret underwater passageway that leads all the way up to the top of the tree but this has not been confirmed by anyone.

Enjoy.

They each have a well in them that you jump down to enter the system. Next to each well is a flight of stairs to get back out. I may be biased, but it is MUCH easier to travel across the map with the tunnels... faster too. Though it is boring. :P

Yes I do, and that is one of the support beams for it. I dont want it to be like layers and layers of rooms, I want a few big ones.

Like Celdur said, the leaves should be similar to water in that you slowly sink through them. This way, they could also be used as ladders if you hold space bar you slowly go to the top.

Unless I'm mistaken. Do you intend to work on the community map with us or are you doing your own map? Either way it doesn't look like any of your info is saving properly. Make sure you've read the direction on how to properly save a game of minecraft.

VERY cool! That's an impressive feat!

I've connected Celdur's fortress into the tunnel system. There's one length of tunnel that has yet to be completed, I'll probably do it later tonight. Check out the access route, I've marked it with a giant "C" to denote that it leads to Celdur's place.

EDIT - Say Pat, could your next route, once you're done within the current one that is, be to the respawn area? it'd make things so much easier!

Post by: PatMan33 on May 31, 2009, 01:59:30 pm
I plan to change the respawn location when I find the center of the map and build the tunnel hub. ;) When complete, it should allow you to see most of what you need to see and to access the tunnel system with relative ease.

Just some notes to keep in mind. Celdur has found the the map is 64 blocks high. My own measurements show that it is 512 blocks long and we have inferred that the map is also 512 blocks wide.

So that gives us a map that is 512x512x64 (measured in blocks).

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on June 01, 2009, 04:09:36 pm
No, that was just his rough test. He has a lot more things to add like player names, chatting, and stuff.
I shall quote blog.

Quote from: blog
Multiplayer was a huge success. There are a few lag issues, but nowhere near as bad as I feared it mightíve been.
Unfortunately, after a not as long test as I had hoped, the power went out in most of the northern suburbs of Stockholm, knocking me more offline than Iíve been for years. It was dark and lonely. :-(

As for the multiplayer, thereís still work to do:

* Interpolate other player positions
* Make the server not trust the client. The client will send keypresses instead of absolute positions.
* Add client previews for building/destroying blocks. This will remove 90% of the perceived lag.
* Player names! Iíd rather not make them float over the heads like some other games do it, but I need to show them somehow.
* Chatting
* Custom player skins
* Server configuration (port, max players, map source (load from network, create a new?)
* Online server list. All running servers will report in to the master server if theyíre not set to be private. Users will see a list of all servers on minecraft.net

Once the multiplayer serverís been released, I can start work on survival mode and more game features, and perhaps even look into finite water.

One major problem I see with multiplayer is that flooding caves is faar too easy and faar to destructive.

Got something important to say? Suggest on forums or send it to him directly.
Try not to bother him with inane crap though.

A few more things:
respect the landscape. Don't go demolishing a hill to add a castle piece; build into it. Flat spaces annoy me.
The castle can be added to in any way. But don't demolish any walls or anything, except to build doorways.
It can be as fanciful as you want. Make a floating section, a flying boat, anything. But keep it to the main structure.

What I meant was , keep expanding on the main tower, and if you want to add another castle, connect it with a large bridge to an existing large structure. Or, An underground tunnel. If another castle is very far away, to not disrupt the landscape, you must build an underground tunnel. I just like nature. :) If we run out of vertical space, expand inland.

Well, I managed to do some weird stuff to get the server to work. Environment variables, setting a new path thing.. I don't know.

But the thing runs now.
However, there is a new problem. The Minecraft site seems to be down.
I asked someone else to check if they could get in, and he seems to be in. So how come after I change this thing the software runs but now neither the site nor the forums work?

EDIT: Basically, I'm asking that a few of you guys confirm whether or not www.minecraft.net works at all.

EDIT2: I'm in the minecraft IRC talking to the only one guy out of the bunch that has the exact same issue.
Different ISP and he lives in the states.

EDIT3: Well, I just sent an email to Notch (the developer for those that aren't aware) anyway.
He oughta get this sorted out by tomorrow. And then I'll have some.. uh, semi-permanent hosting info up on page one of the thread.
Likely 24/7 at least as long as there is interest.


Ignore all that crap now.

EDIT4:
Hey! Server!
http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?server=70.69.187.46&port=25565
It is currently not public, which means it will not appear in the public list.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Josasa on June 09, 2009, 06:11:32 pm
Well here's something interesting...

I was working on the tunnels that Patman and I had been constructing, I finished up the section and plugged the lava so it's all good. But later, I was exploring Celdur's tunnels and his massive cavern when I noticed a thing of lava coming down on of his tunnels. Someone had to have hit it, I have no idea who. It flooded a large section of the out ring tunnels (the flood gates worked, which was awesome) but I then realized that any lava that got into Celdur's section would be able to spread in all directions. It was pure luck that I happened to be there at the time.

So, I placed floodgates at the very beginning of Celdur's three tunnels while I marked off the one that had been flooded with sand. I was able to clear some of that tunnel, but not all of it. The outer ring is still flooded, I didn't even start to mess with that.

Sorry if those flood gates are an eyesore Celdur, but it had to be done in order to save a large majority of the underground tunnels. Feel free to change them however you like, I just ask that you keep some sort of blocker there for all of us.

The only culprits I can think of are Miclee and Badger. Badger was near the scene of the crime but had gone AFK for some time. I believe it was Miclee that had wanted to find lava. If he did he very well could have accidentally (or purposely) led it to the major tunnel system. Well, that's my report. 
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on June 09, 2009, 06:30:25 pm
Yeah, that's the problem with flooding. You can never tell if it's on purpose or by accident.
Sometimes you just screw up.

We really need that finite water thing, and the ability to destroy water quickly.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Miclee on June 09, 2009, 06:33:42 pm
I didn't end up finding any lava at all.  :'(
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Beastosaurus on June 09, 2009, 07:03:23 pm
Mayhap it was me? I recall finding a large source of lava, but it was no where near Celdur's tunnel. As I recall, it was near a side entrance to the pyramid that someone had surrounded by stone... I lifted the roof off the cavern to discover a shallow path of lava, which led to an entrance to a very large, deep and randomly layed tunnel (perhaps of natural make) also filled with lava. There was a gap of clean dirt between the two, separated only by a single block floodgate. Not knowing the large tunnel was behind it, I removed the block to get past.

My hypothesis is that, if this small entrance to the pyramid were connected to Celdur's tunnels, in my folly I accidentally filled them both with lava thinking I was in an isolated system.

I'll log on shortly to check it out.

Alternatively, The large and deep tunnel was connected to Celdur's tunnels and was flooded using the lava beneath the pyramid. The perpetrator then sealed the entrance beside the pyramid and removed some of the lava, using the respawn command to remove themselves from the scene of the crime.

Let's not go on a witch hunt here.

If it was indeed my fault, as I suspect, I apologize in advance of both conviction and sentencing.

Post by: PatMan33 on June 09, 2009, 08:14:48 pm
Alright... in the future make sure you're being VERY careful when digging in the tunnel system. Put up lots of breaks and seal off your work area until you're sure it's safe. You will notice areas in the tunnel that are blocked off with GREEN blocks. That means DO NOT DIG. There is a severe lava problem that someone let go unchecked and it caused us quite a lot of trouble. We did what we could but there's more lava than is worth fixing. Be vigilant!

Alright... in the future make sure you're being VERY careful when digging in the tunnel system. Put up lots of breaks and seal off your work area until you're sure it's safe. You will notice areas in the tunnel that are blocked off with GREEN blocks. That means DO NOT DIG. There is a severe lava problem that someone let go unchecked and it caused us quite a lot of trouble. We did what we could but there's more lava than is worth fixing. Be vigilant!

I cleared out all the lava in celdur's tower...

there's a huuuuge pocket though through one of the tunnels. Blocked that off with logs.

Post by: Didero on June 10, 2009, 08:30:53 am
I cleared water from a section of the outer tunnels. One of the corner entrances is partly flooded, but it appears to be an easy way to get back up, so I'm not sure if it should be made water-free. The rest of the tunnel isn't flooded, because of the two small stairs.

Yeah. Gauph was saying a bunch of guys were looking for lava and didn't find it... I don't know how they missed it. There is lava EVERYWHERE down there. Someone's double tunnel got totally flooded by lava and we managed to clear it out; however there was another huge pocket nearby that we couldn't take the time to fix.

Anyone going to be pre-ordering this?

It's going to be 20 euro full price, which is about $28 US. From his blog:

Quote from: Notch
Iím going to start up pre-purchases of the game soon, at a discount of the full price.

The full game will be Ä20, but if you pre-purchase while itís in alpha, you get it for just Ä9.95. If you wait until beta (ie when survival mode is released), the price goes up to Ä14.95. If you wait until release (after survival mode works well), youíll have to pay full price.

If you donít want to pay (or canít), there will be a free demo after beta. Either way, you will be able to play the game as you do now for free up until release. I will however include some benefits for pre-purchases.



Hereís what you get for purchasing:

* You help fund development of Minecraft.
* Custom skins in multiplayer, starting very soon.
* All future updates of the game, including all expansions and addons. You never have to pay again.
* Once youíve bought the game, itís yours. Do whatever you want with it!
* Survival mode

Expansions include (these will happen after release):
+ Zombie Siege
+ Capture the Flag
+ Various level importers. (Iíve already got a doom level importer working.. kinda. :D)
+ AND MORE!

Pie beat me to it with his short text! 

Honestly $14 to pre-order a game that doesn't even have any gameplay features implemented yet?l

What he plans to be implemented, what he actually implements, and how well he implements them are entirely different things. 

He seems to be very competent designer, but the fun factor could swing either way with this game.  I foresee the potential for a lot of griefing.  But if he pulls off a simple Dwarf Fortress gameplay model with resources and item/equipment crafting and building, all with multiplayer, it's a definite buy.  Still too early to tell.

People who are playing on the server... PLEASE try to be careful when you dig. Isolate your work area and put breaks in frequently. Jos and I had no trouble digging our tunnels across the map. All of the unflooding we've had to do (like unflood the same portion of tunnel THREE TIMES because someone doesn't listen) is being caused by people who are not being mindful of their surroundings.

So again, PLEASE take your time when digging.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Lippy on June 10, 2009, 12:25:20 pm
The problem is with the liquid in general.  One square of water can multiply and flood all the way to the bottom of a shaft, where it should just trickle.  If he implemented a better liquid dynamic, that would alleviate a lot of the time consumption from this game.  Until that happens, I just leave liquid be.  It's not worth the effort to click hundreds, if not thousands of tiles in sequence to fix a flood.

Actually. Summoner blamed something in his separate tunnel on me and told me to fix it. When I did so he blamed it on me repeatedly and said that I brought the water on top of him when I was below him. I told him to shut up because he said that I set up that pocket of water for him to dig into. You have your facts mixed up. You couldn't even see me or summoner.

The old one is backed up for posterity, could probably use it in the map import feature down the line if you ever wanted to see it again.
Or not. In any case, let me know.

Here is new URL. This is also in the first page of the thread so you can find it easily, but you could just as easily put it into your bookmarks anyway.

He needs to add either pump or drain blocks, either that or make the water shift instead of replicate.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Josasa on June 11, 2009, 08:34:09 am
The problem with water replicating is that it is all connected to the sea, so that's basically infinite. It would make sense to have nonreplicating water for those lakes and ponds not connected to the sea, but other than that it would be infinite.

He should try to do something where water only wants to go down, and that it would only go to the side if absolutely necessary. Even this is hard though because it will eventually expand over itself. He would have to limit it to only one block tall sections for that to work.

Quote from: Notch
Once the multiplayer serverís been released, I can start work on survival mode and more game features, and perhaps even look into finite water.

One major problem I see with multiplayer is that flooding caves is faar too easy and faar to destructive.

It's something he really needs to fix now in his design before it corrupts the rest of the game design.

I've made a small script with AutoHotkey to be able to mine really fast. Just hold down the mouse button, and you'll go through anything like butter.
Here's a download link (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?kmokwdvjetm).
Even though it'll most likely won't mess up your computer (it hasn't done anything to mine, and I've used it through all the bugged versions :P), I can't take responsibility for any damage it does. Just covering my ass :P
Please, please, please be careful with mining on the multiplayer map while using this script. It's very easy to mine too fast, and accidentally flood places.
Also, it will work in and outside of MineCraft, so it can do some weird things outside of MC.

To close down the script, just right-click on the white 'H' with the green background in the system tray, and select 'Exit' from the menu.

Finally, if you encounter any bugs (which I don't think you will), please let me know.
Happy speed-digging! :)

It's fun to do and quite a sight to see when it's completed.
Your view of it when you're building it is so close that you can't really make it out.

But then you back away.. awesome.

speaking of wich: me and gauph decided to do a little project on the server

we are making palenque...a giant 88x160 mural on the floor...you should instantly see the base of it once you log in and feel free to help out digging out the mountains or building the base

please dont build anything on it though...i will probably have to remove that >.>

It was really cool to watch Gaup make those. Even though the Yoshi and baby Mario one was abandoned.

Post by: Gauphastus on June 12, 2009, 06:20:56 pm
Celdur's palenque mural thing will likely take more than one day to do.
Avoid using the platform we've cleared, and don't build over top of it or too near to it. Obstructions aren't cool, yo.

The map is still fresh and has loads of space. It's even been pretty safe to build underground lately.
That last map was a great success, despite the problems here and there. Let's go for a twofer.

Also, www.minecraft.net updated. Looks a bit snazzier.

That was mine, and It would've gone better had it been on the ground. I ran into a confusing, supposedly unresolvable error in the design. I failed to deconstruct it.

Oh, right. Public day is on Sunday.
Letting you know in advance so you can either join in or avoid it. We may get a bunch of randoms or we may not.
There's really no telling how things will go.

Just, you know, don't sink to their level if people are being douches. This day does not imply that there will be no rules at all.
Just think of it as an opportunity to see the kind of people you'll later be murdering in survival mode.

Wait, survival mode is like DF's adventure mode? I always thought it was more like fortress mode, where you have to build a fort and gather resources and do jobs, but with your friends in multiplayer.

Post by: Gauphastus on June 12, 2009, 09:19:46 pm
Oh, I think that may be speculation on my part. I figured we'd be able to kill the wildlife as well as other players
Like instead of right off the bat we pick a team as red or blue or whatever, we instead just sort of fall into groups together, in little cliques.

And then we'd be fighting over particular resources or land or strategic points. I guess.

Don't mind me though. I could very well be wrong. Just somehow I get the feeling that that's how it's going to play out.

I'm hoping for a more pacifistic game, but I like your idea. I just want to build huge forts with food and furnishings, and a bunch of us just kind of live there. Keep things running, make our own adventures, defend from sieges, fight monsters, garden, hunt, make soap, etc.

It's not undone bread. It's like paying less after seeing that the dough is good, but hasn't been baked yet.


Anyway, have you not heard of Mount and Blade? Same principle as that. Early in development, it was dirt cheap, and people often weren't buying because it was "an unfinished product." Well, now it's finished, and damn i wish I had bought it when it was really cheap.

Title: Re: Minecraft (poll added)
Post by: Miclee on June 14, 2009, 11:08:01 am
Yes, survival mode atleast somewhat:
Quote from: Minecraft Devblog
(http://www.minecraft.net/screenies/survival.jpg)
You start by generating a level pretty much like you do now. Alternatively, you can load a level someone else has made in creative mode, or continue from an old survival mode save.
When generating a new level or loading a creative mode level, you also select a difficulty. Difficulty levels will probably vary from ďchallengingĒ to ďimpossibleĒ, since I want the game to be difficult. If itís not fun to always be challenged, Iíll add easier difficulties.

At the bottom of the game screen, youíll have an inventory list and a health bar. Selecting things from the inventory list will work pretty much like it does now, you can use the scroll wheel, or press buttons directly.

Construction:

Youíll start out with just a pickaxe in your inventory, and possibly some seeds. Selecting the pickaxe and clicking on a tile will destroy it, but different tiles will take differently long to remove. Stone will be tougher than dirt, and so. Either way, the delay wonít be long. Perhaps one full second for stone.

When you destroy a block, most blocks will release resources. In the case of stone, they will spawn small stone blocks. You can pick these up by walking over them if youíve got an empty inventory slot, or a slot with the same resource type in it, up to some certain maximum.

To build, just select a slot with a tile resource in it, and click in the world as you do now. There will be no delay on building, only on breaking blocks, but it balances out since you have to get the resouce to be able to build in the first place.

No block tile will produce more than one resource of the same time, as that would allow you to farm a single rock tile over and over. The exception to this is wood, which will produce several plan resources. You can never directly build wood, but if you plant seeds on grass, you get a small plant. After some time, the plant will pop into a large beautiful tree.

Combat and health:


There will be hostile mobs roaming the map. Goblins, trolls, wolves, whatever fits. They will be blocky. ;)

To attack a monster, select a pickaxe or a sword, and simply click the monster like you would a tile. Each click damages the monster (with a minimum time between clicks, perhaps 250 ms), and once the health is gone, itís dead.

You can also push monsters by walking into them. Both you and the monster will be shoved away from each other. This should let you push goblins into firery lava pits of doom.

Monsters will hurt you and take away from your health.
The only way to regain health is to eat food.
You get food from either hunting or from farming.

Tools and equipment:

There will be very basic crafting.
Two types of swords, two types of armor, two types of helmets. The basic versions require iron. The advanced versions require steel, which you make by combining iron and coal.
Carrying swords, armor or helmets take up inventory slots, but otherwise have no penalty and work pretty much as you expect (prevent some damage, or cause more damage)

I havenít fully solved how crafting should work in detail. Iíll do that once I get there in development.

Bows and arrows can be made out of wood. To use it, select the bow from your inventory and make sure youíve got some arrows. Click in front of you, and an arrow goes flying using real physics.
To actually HIT something, aim above it.

Endgame:

While it could be fun to just see how long you can survive in survival mode, I believe there might be a need for some kind of goal. Make the most money in a month? Kill a big evil mob in the shortest time? I donít know yet.

And of course, this all works in multiplayer:

Both cooperative and competetive multiplayer will be possible. Iíll probably have three settings; cooperative (canít hurt other players), team (can hurt other team) and anarchy (can hurt anyone, form alliances ingame!).

For team based survival modes, thereís a whole array of fun potential game modes, like capture the flag and terrain control.

Routers are a wonderful device.

But you know what's better? Hubs.
Hubs are great.
I recommend all you poor fools constantly confounded by routers go out and get these things called hubs. If you still want to be "secure"  ::) you can still run the modem to the hub to the router to the secure computer.

Cheapest one I've seen is 10 bucks I think?
Title: Re: Minecraft (server is now private again)
Post by: Didero on June 16, 2009, 12:29:33 pm
Except for the fact that hubs are really inefficient, since they just send all traffic to every computer on the network, instead of a router that figures out what goes to which computer.

But in a small network, it shouldn't be too big of a problem :)

The Sponge would come in handy right about now.  Someone flooded my sphere.  That took longer than I expected, really.  They must have had to really work at it to flood every nook and cranny too.    ::)

Here's some pics before the flood.  I took them knowing that someone would eventually mess it up.    :P

So, guys. I know some of you are wondering why you're "bothering working on new maps if they're just going to get deleted."
Just to be clear, I'm not deleting anything. I have backed up like every map except for maybe the first two since I started hosting this thing.

There will later be a map import feature, supposedly even working with Doom levels. What I'm hoping is that as a start, it works with these old levels I'm saving.
When survival or zombie siege or whatever else comes out, I can load these maps up. Thought it'd be cool for you guys to play different game modes, killing monsters and stuff, and you'd be saying "Hey, I remember making that! But now goblins are setting it on fire... :("

It's why I've kind of been pushing for people to make sprawling castle cities but... :P


Oh, yeah. I might buy the game today and make some skins.
Not sure what though.

Don't forget giant water-filled spheres!

All kidding aside, next map let's make a functional game world. Some huge fort capable of surviving a siege.

Don't get me wrong; the sphere is cool and an accomplishment. It just lacks usefulness. Like Microsoft Windows Aero Glass Professional Premium 2007 or whatever clumsy name Microsoft has seen fit to bestow upon it.
Title: Re: Minecraft (server is now private again)
Post by: Lippy on June 18, 2009, 11:38:03 am
Oh, I know it's useless.  I didn't make it for the eventual gameplay, I made it just to make it, and pass the time while waiting for survival. 

I find myself mining the ore I find more often, even though it's currently pointless.  Just waiting.

Client updated with sponge and glass.  Sponge just instantly erases water within 3-4 blocks from it.  Can't ask for anything more than that right now. 

No more user placeable sand.  Sand is there, you just don't have the option to build it. 

Animated water and magma textures.  A little to get used to. 

So far looks good though.

I have a perfect way to implement sponges
use them like floodgates. You can place them inside a wall, so they keep water from flowing, like a forcefield. that way you don't have these ugly yellow things lying around. No more greifing by flood!

It's in alpha now and will be free to play until its final release, when you have to pay 20 euro to get it.  Or you can pay 10 euro now for it before it enters beta in a few weeks.  

There's not going to be a monthly fee if that's what you're wondering.

I think (hope) once people get used to sponges, they won't spam them all over the map, but only use them to keep their constructions from flooding, or easily removing any flood that does occur.
Title: Re: Minecraft (server is now private again)
Post by: Lippy on June 20, 2009, 08:58:09 am
Did Gauph update his server again?  I know about an hour after Notch updated the game with sponges, he updated again with a bugfix (disappearing sponges)

He also said don't get used to the sponges.  It's a quick fix for flooding before he ads finite water. 

And fyi: Sponges will also hold back lava, but won't immediately suck it up like water.

No, he said the way sponges behave will change, not that sponges will disappear all together.
From his blog:
Quote from:  Notch's Blog
Sponges will NOT work like this once finite water is implemented.
So sponges will stay.

Yannick you completely missed my point. I said says mr Mural boy because Celdur only makes mural and has only made murals since this game was discovered. So its a joke to quote his message where he wants everyone to make stuff not mural and say : says mr Mural boy.

Its really not funny when you have to explain it like that.

Yannick bobanick it looks like either your gfx card is on the fritz, you need updating to java, maybe because he coded it with the latest version, or this is a problem with the minecraft programming.

I made a big fort, but it's still under construction. The market path has a side road leading to it. Currently, it has a green house atop the tower, a small mine and water access. I plan to add a room full of barracks for housing. Anything else? Maybe a subterranean mushroom farm, or a dining hall? I'm out of ideas but need another room.

If the game is boring now, which I guess I can kinda understand, I suppose I'll let you back in once we get some gameplay elements in there.
At the rate we're going, that won't be long either.

Just take a break for the time being.
Or, if you can, run your own server in public mode and see how that goes.  :P

After my experiences with Infiniminer, I will never, ever, never EVAR run a public server for these sorts of games, and the things I experienced there have traumatized me to the point that I will never host any sort of public server for any game. Seriously, those people scared me.

Take a break you say then? Okay. I guess I'll play WoW or something.

Anyway, what actual gameplay do you think Notch will throw us first? I'm thinking it'd be wise to implement an 'economy' of resources with which we build bricks before brick laying becomes a matter of urgency.

Well, you can try anyway. Most of the time you'll spend sitting there watching the poor guy get bombarded by everybody ever, asking questions, popping suggestions, giving coding advice, and stuff.

It's pretty nutty in there when Notch shows up and it only gets worse. But he insists that's his preferred place to hear people, so..
Yeah, I'm usually in there but I'm afraid I have no clue what he'll be doing next. If we're lucky, he'll let us know on the dev blog what he's up to.

Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Kitkat on June 23, 2009, 08:36:53 pm
For the last time, I didn't try to! I'm ashamed. :-[
Here's what I remember happening:
I came in through the tunnel, not the elevator. Walking down the gold lined tunnel, I was baffled at where to go at the huge room. I went down the well concealed tunnel from the room down a golden staircase, into an impossibly long tunnel. Almost losing hope, I however continued on, to the pyramid room! As I was climbing the pyramid to the elevator, I fell in. In my attempt to escape the pyramid, I must have demolished the block, flooding the place. Later, I came back, and to my horror, it was flooded with lava, a chunk missing from the pyramid.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Raz on June 23, 2009, 08:39:09 pm
That cannot be confirmed or proven wrong, because we weren't there. What we do know that happened, is that you tore up the blocks around the elevator shaft which went straight down, in a extensive amount of simply massive damage, destroyed part of the pyramid, which released the lava inside which then flooded both the room, and the tunnel I had dug.

I agree, KitKat's doesn't have a bad record. 

But these "accidents" happen too much in this game.  It's just carelessness if you ask me.

I finally got grass down at the very bottom (and if anyone knows about grass, it can take a long time to move someplace), when Summoner decides he wants to flood the area.  Accident or not, he flooded the area on purpose.

And as often as accidents happen around certain people, it's hard to call them accidents.

Well, now that there are sponges, if you want to keep something, I suggest putting a sponge block or two away. Hide it under a rock if you don't want it visible..
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Yannick on June 24, 2009, 12:50:31 pm
yeah sponges have a pretty massive radius, so you can dig out a wall and hide it behind some blocks and it'll still work, actually breaking every law of physics.

Then again, there are floating blocks and infinite water, so realism was thrown out of the window the moment this game was created.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Lippy on June 24, 2009, 01:46:48 pm
Sponges have a radius of 2 blocks.  If you hide them, they have an effective radius of only 1 block which is essentially useless for what I was doing.

And I had already put sponges and a wall blocking the lake.  That should have been enough.  But being an obvious wall blocking water, it was too much for a griefer not to destroy.  If someone wants to flood your stuff, they will.  No amount of walls or sponges will stop them.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Yannick on June 24, 2009, 01:51:05 pm
S|..|S
Sponge - Wall - Opening - Opening - Wall - Sponge

You can make hallways of of a two tile radius. The point of hiding the sponges is so that griefers have to actually look around to find your sponge.

I know you can do that for hallways.  If I was just making hallways, it wouldn't be so bad cleaning up the flooding.  If you're making a giant pit, that won't work. 

Top view not to scale

~~~~~~~~~~  ocean

And he still flooded it by getting rid of everything stopping the water. 

Stop blaming the victim.  There's absolutely nothing to stop that from happening.  1000-clicks per minute scripts see to that. The only thing I can do is make my own server and build unbreakable blocks, or might as well just play SP.

The worst part about it is that I had just bought the game not 20 minutes before it happened, and it totally soured me on the game.

It happens. Most of us have had something that we worked hard on get destroyed (sometimes more than once). Just a part of the game until someone does something to change it. Don't focus on the bad times, try to channel into the fun you had and let that come out.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Raz on June 24, 2009, 03:24:16 pm
But in its creation, I repaired two lava floods, and a number of water floods as I was figuring out the correct placement of the stabilizer sponges. Lavaworks and waterworks in this game are a real pain to make, especially when they're combined. I put a huge amount of time into building it, only to have it ruined.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: PatMan33 on June 24, 2009, 03:27:52 pm
I'm sorry to hear that. I had several large tunnel projects flooded on several different occasions and this was before the sponges came out. Of course I was upset and I did overreact but you've got to try to let it pass. It's only a game, all will be well. Learn from the project and apply it to new things!

Well, I made a glass tower with a gold wrap around the bottom fourth. I used sponges and gravel blocks to form a wall against the nearby water. It'd probly be more trouble than it's worth to flood it seeing as I used quite a few sponges. Besides, even if you did eliminate all the sponges, it'd only flood the bottom floor (one block). :D

OK Guys, I'm hosting a map with 4x the normal size (apparently I can't see anything when I host a 16x one, haven't tried 8x, I will later), I made a heightmap in photoshop and some tweaks in the map editor, map is huge, it has 3 mountains in the center and some separate islands, 2 of the mountains have LAVA and WATER each, please try not to flood the map or I'll remove that in the next version (by the way, there's plenty of space between the lava & water puddles and the actual mountain walls so if you do flood the map, don't say it was by accident).

Haha, Gauph and me atempted to flood it with both lava and water at the same time... crash xD

Gonna remove those :X

Man, that lava is slow.

Water just spreads and takes over.
It's a big map too. Quite a sight to see.

Server is up again, removed the huge flooding possibilities, added some caves and craters.

What do you guys think of a map as big/slightly bigger as the one I'm running using the world map as a height map? Would be fun. If enough people agree I'll make one, otherwise I'll make it anyways xD

I'd very much like a larger map.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: DarkDragon on June 25, 2009, 04:24:47 am
Here's the normal size and the size I'm using:

Normal:
Width = 256
Length = 256
Height = 64

This one:
Width = 512
Length = 512
Height = 128

It's 4x the size of a normal one in widthxlength and twice the size in height, just come and check it out.

EDIT:
Been doing some calculations, for huge maps there are quite a few choices for dimensions (among others):

512*512*128

768*768*56

1024*1024*32

2048*2048*8

I guess in terms of huge looking while still looking good the 768x768x56 one is the best, currently I'm using the 512x512x128 one but the map will change later today (and then it will be the one that you'll play for about a week unless the server fills up faster than expected).

Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Josasa on June 25, 2009, 11:49:35 am
Territory is sectioned off, limits would have to be imposed on the amount of block changes 'per turn', resources would actually have a value and could be traded between nations, successful farms with irrigation would be needed. There's a lot we could do with this. It would take time, but a good setup could yield awesome results.

how do you get resources? I mean every time i click on gold i just destroy it...
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Raz on June 25, 2009, 12:12:33 pm
It would require a good deal of 'trust' in that you only make a gold block for every raw gold block mined, or some other block for iron mined.

Would be hard to do, with all the micromanagement.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: munchkin5 on June 25, 2009, 12:18:47 pm
scrap the resources idea and just have nations, how good the nation is would depend on what it's inhabitants built for it.

Post by: Gauphastus on June 25, 2009, 02:07:34 pm
My server is always up.
Though the player base has gone from dwindling to next to nothing. Got maybe an idler or two in there at most.
Guess we need those updates after all.

In any case, when it gets slow enough (and we're close), I will cease hosting until the interest comes back.
That'll probably happen after we get some decent gameplay updating.

Thanks for hosting Gaugh.  I really appreciate the private server, even if it does cause me the occasional fit. 

I'll be shutting down my server tonight.  It hasn't garnered much interest, as I was expecting.  I just started it to get a feel for hosting the servers, and to give myself a feel of power.  Total, unlimited power. 

And Darkdragon's XL server is cool, but I still like to explore the random caves and dig through the ore veins.  Might be time to refresh the map, Gaugh.

So, yeah. Skyward, try to update your java :X

So, it seems due to my random placing of 2 giant cubes and 2 giant spheres... 2 religions have formed, that's how humans work, you put something huge and awesome in front of them and they'll make a religion out of it :P

Of course, as always, no 2 religions can co-exist peacefuly and vandalism happens:

As admin of the server, I guess there's only one way to solve this problem and finally decide who is the true god! It will be the one that allows his believers to win in a game of mostly chance/luck that we all love:

Gotta say though, at least I didn't go around wrecking stuff.
I saw a chunk of the skybridge wrecked, the flower room, passages filled with cobblestone, sand dumped around..

Keep it real, guys. You're not actually cubists and I'm not actually a follower of the spheres.


In other news, you guys saw Notch's dev blog articles about the fake accounts right?

Someone set up a script to register accounts, and in total there seems to be about 6186 of them.

How does that happen I didnt even know there was a way to raise water levels
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: DarkDragon on June 26, 2009, 05:45:24 am
Well because I'm using a height map the walls on the side are just blocking the water, I guess someone removed one of them since the level flooded all the way up to the normal water level.

Now, I don't like to point fingers but there was this person by the name of "Clarke" on the server alone for quite a while and because of the map size whenever there is a sizeable flood like this one everyone on the server will crash with a buffer overflow error and the server will automatically restart which is exactly what happened when Clarke and only Clarke was there, considering that the next person to join asked why the map was flooded that leads me even more to believe it was him since before him I was the last one to be there.

So yeah, he's banned unless he has something in his defense. Map was reversed back to the point where I finished my Spleef arena, sorry about the inconvenience.

I'm sorry about that.  :(
I was building a tower up to see what was holding the water back, and it suddenly flooded.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: DarkDragon on June 26, 2009, 05:48:53 am
Well I'll give you a chance this time since I had a backup but if it happens again you're banned for good.

EDIT:

I just tested what he said and it's true, if you build something touching the water edges of the map and then remove it then invisible barrier disappears and it floods the whole thing, so don't do that :P

Sorry for suspecting you Clarke.

It wasn't flooded when I left and stuff doesn't magically flood.

Also, spleef is a minecraft sport where people dig on a platform or several platforms trying to get their oponents to fall. Last man standing wins. We could play it on my arena if IT WASN'T FLOODED >_<

I think Notch could optimize Minecraft in terms of map storing and handling, have a look at how the Minecraft maps are stored:

1. The normal size of a map is 256x256x64, the map is stored pixel by pixel and using layers so each layer is 256x256 and the whole map is 256x256x64
2. That means a whole map occupies a maximum of of 4,194,304 pixels which (I can't recall right now but I'm pretty sure) means it occupies 4,194,304 Bytes = approx. 4MB (that's not counting coordinates which probably bring it up to 9x that)
3. That's probably if the map is full of dirt, etc. I don't think air blocks occupy anything, they're basically the "blank" block because they're the most common.

Either way, it's unpractical. Notch's method on the left, my method on the right:
(http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/1462/theoryz.png)

As you can see Notch stores every pixel so each pixel (lets say) occupies 9 bytes, I haven't worked with Java in a while but I think an Integer in Java is 4 bytes meaning that if you want to store the x, y and color of a pixel it takes 4, 4, 1 bytes respectively.
So to store the layer above using the Notch method we would be storing 14,196 pixels, each with 8 bytes of coordinates (on this layer) meaning that bit of dirt uses 113,568

Now have a look at my method, a function runs through the layer and finds the greatest block that can that fits in there, then it finds smaller blocks around it and so on (I did this by hand just to show it):

So, looking at my method on the right side we have 8 imaginary squares (x, y - width * height):

1: 373, 55 - 56 * 17 (952 pixels)
2: 368, 72 - 66 * 7 (462 pixels)
3: 364, 79 - 75 * 7 (525 pixels)
4: 383, 86 - 56 * 5 (280 pixels)
5: 338, 86 - 9 * 58 (522 pixels)
6: 347, 86 - 36 * 79 (2844 pixels)
7: 383, 91 - 67 * 113 (7571 pixels)
8: 450, 91 - 20 * 52 (1040 pixels)

We have 8 blocks in this case, each block stores 8 Bytes for coordinates, 8 Bytes for size and 1 Byte for block type (which is represented by color, in this case it's dirt)
What the above means is that using this method (with each block using 17 Bytes) that piece of dirt uses only 136 Bytes!

Compare 136 Bytes to 113,568
The new method uses only 0.12% of the data the other one uses and achieves the same effect. Of course Notch would have to write new algorithms to handle this new method but in the long run (and applying this to a 3d world) it would save a lot of rendering and processing time as well as map size, it would also allow for maps (hundreds?) of times bigger than what we have now, which would be quite epic.

I could go on, but I think you get the picture :P

You're welcome, Alwayspooping!  ;D

I actually did read it, and I quite agree. Map unpacking seems to be a tad inefficient when viewed like that. I can go from over 200 FPS down to 7 FPS just moving the camera slowly, and my laptop doesn't suck. I can play Spore and DoW II, but Miecraft is super laggy at times. I think it'll just get worse once gameplay is added.

2. That means a whole map occupies a maximum of of 4,194,304 pixels which (I can't recall right now but I'm pretty sure) means it occupies 4,194,304 Bytes = approx. 4MB (that's not counting coordinates which probably bring it up to 9x that)
3. That's probably if the map is full of dirt, etc. I don't think air blocks occupy anything, they're basically the "blank" block because they're the most common.

Either way, it's unpractical. Notch's method on the left, my method on the right:
(http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/1462/theoryz.png)

As you can see Notch stores every pixel so each pixel (lets say) occupies 9 bytes, I haven't worked with Java in a while but I think an Integer in Java is 4 bytes meaning that if you want to store the x, y and color of a pixel it takes 4, 4, 1 bytes respectively.
So to store the layer above using the Notch method we would be storing 14,196 pixels, each with 8 bytes of coordinates (on this layer) meaning that bit of dirt uses 113,568

Now have a look at my method, a function runs through the layer and finds the greatest block that can that fits in there, then it finds smaller blocks around it and so on (I did this by hand just to show it):

So, looking at my method on the right side we have 8 imaginary squares (x, y - width * height):

1: 373, 55 - 56 * 17 (952 pixels)
2: 368, 72 - 66 * 7 (462 pixels)
3: 364, 79 - 75 * 7 (525 pixels)
4: 383, 86 - 56 * 5 (280 pixels)
5: 338, 86 - 9 * 58 (522 pixels)
6: 347, 86 - 36 * 79 (2844 pixels)
7: 383, 91 - 67 * 113 (7571 pixels)
8: 450, 91 - 20 * 52 (1040 pixels)

We have 8 blocks in this case, each block stores 8 Bytes for coordinates, 8 Bytes for size and 1 Byte for block type (which is represented by color, in this case it's dirt)
What the above means is that using this method (with each block using 17 Bytes) that piece of dirt uses only 136 Bytes!

Compare 136 Bytes to 113,568
The new method uses only 0.12% of the data the other one uses and achieves the same effect. Of course Notch would have to write new algorithms to handle this new method but in the long run (and applying this to a 3d world) it would save a lot of rendering and processing time as well as map size, it would also allow for maps (hundreds?) of times bigger than what we have now, which would be quite epic.

I could go on, but I think you get the picture :P

Air is actually a block.

I know air is a block, but considering that air is the most common and that he stores blocks by coordinates instead of sequentially then the most practical way is to not even store the air blocks, that way the game knows that if there is no block, it's because it's air.

I know what we could do :P

Since the map is so huge, we could split it up into 4 areas by closing them off with unbreakables. We start with having one area open and then after about 3-4 days DD opens up another area and so on. Each area could have their own theme, like waterworld, mountains/canyons, flatgrass, desert? etc... and eveyones who's OP will have to promise not to sneak into the other areas.  ::)

I banned you because we were only 4 on the server and everything was fine before you joined, then I heard you say pills here, I teleported to you and saw my medkit completely destroyed as well as part of the bridge next to it. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and unban you but if I see you deleting stuff I'll ban you for good.

Waht the hell is wrong with kitkat and josasa? I made something and then they digg a hole down the middle. WTF? I made it and when I try to fix it they dig again. Then I get kicked.
Title: Re: Minecraft (new poll added; please share!)
Post by: Josasa on July 01, 2009, 05:08:07 pm
I don't know how you got kicked, but you were cursing up a storm. And as I was saying many, many, many times before (but you can't seem to listen) I had mapped out the center of that stadium long before and built the underwater glass tunnel. I was there before you, someone must have filled in those things before.

Anyway, the Awesome Psychedelic Tube of Awesomeness has been constructed. It is currently the only structure (besides the sphere) to touch the glass platform. I suggest you go to the top, set your spawn point there and go down it a few times!

Warning! If you are subject to seizures, do not go down the Awesome Psychedelic Tube of Awesomeness

Sorry for double post but this is important, Gungnir and Gauphastus, I'd appreciate if you guys just leave the game like a normal person instead of kicking yourselves, it's not the first time people get confused when they see you get kicked for no reason and then they complain because you weren't doing anything wrong and I have to tell them you kicked yourselves, which isn't very believable.

If Notch would fix the thing so we disconnected properly, then this wouldn't be a problem.
It's been mentioned to him though, awhile back. Maybe I'll bring it up again.
For those who aren't aware, the problem is that I'll close the game but the stupid thing will apparently still leave me connected. The same goes for pretty much everybody else, as I've quite often had to kick idlers (but really, they're just diconnected). And yeah, people used to ask questions back then too but eventually, everybody understood what was going on.
I don't even know why anybody would complain about kicking seeing as it's completely harmless. Like I've said before, it's more of a taunting gesture from the op than anything else.  ::)

Yeah, so I noticed this lots of times on my own server. You'll have these spaced-out idlers floating everywhere not doing anything; not only that, unless you say you're leaving, people will assume you're still there because you technically are.

I try to say "Ignore this." most of the time before I kick myself out but I suppose I could just say "I'm kicking myself for proper logout."
Otherwise, I can just stop my random check-ins.


But yeah, Notch is sick or something. I'll try to mention the issue to him again, but I'm not sure if we'll get anything soon.

EDIT: Email sent. I went over the issue and the problems it causes. Told a couple of stories.
I believe it has something to do with tabbed browsing. I'm aware that if you shut down the entire browser process, Java goes away and you disconnect from the game.
However, if you run Minecraft in a tab alongside other tabs that you continue to use after leaving the game, Java continues to run leaving you connected to Minecraft for a potentially long time.
Unless you close the browser completely or join a different Minecraft game, you'll be left floating there.
We'll see if he can fix this.

I simple "disconnect" button would be nice. 

I noticed in the console for the server, there's an error message about the user before the game disconnects them.  It seems as if the disconnection is more the side effect of not receiving player info anymore, rather than getting a call to manually disconnect them, ie: kick.

We had a player named Swiss join the server while I was away, only Froman was there and he didn't notice, while alone this player flooded the colliseum, destroyed parts of roads and houses and was on his way to flood and underground base when I teleported to him and asked what he was doing, he then disconnected. He is banned now and I fixed most of the stuff, I ask each of you to check your stuff to see if it's fine, the map is looking great and I don't want to see stuff destroyed.

I can't play on public servers.
Being able to stand there and do nothing while griefers wreck stuff just feels bad.

Of course, then there's the whole spawn prison thing. It was funny when I joined this one server and the first thing I see is this big WELCOME sign and all these colorful structures.
But wait! I'm trapped in a 1x1 admin block room and can't move at all.
That sign was obviously in error.

Post by: Lippy on July 03, 2009, 11:05:23 am
Yeah, the spawn prison is annoying.

You can get out, but you have to use a trick to get out.

Step 1: Set your spawn point in the corner at the top floor of the prison.  
Step 2: Build blocks where your spawn point is set, up to the ceiling.  
Step 3: Hit R, and you'll respawn on the roof of the spawn prison.  

I use it also to get above ground quick when I'm below ground, or to get to the top of a big tower.  I destroy a few blocks at the base of the tower, set my spawn point in that hole, and then fix it.  Hitting R will get me to the top.

I think I'm just going to stop playing until he releases survival, or comes out with some big new update.  Too much griefing. 

Password protected servers would be nice.

Probably not until we get some actual gameplay.

Yeah, the server program was lagging my PC and now when I open it the server runs but when I try to connect it says the server is down. I tried restarting but it's still the same, I suggest gauph hosts a smaller random map until I can get this working, or I can send him the map file and we continue there until I can fix this.

How abouts we try a smaller-than-normal map to see what it's like? Or a very small but tall map or something.

Maps tend to mess up the server when their dimensions on x and y and z are not powers of 2, when the x and y are not the same or when they're too small or too big for some reason.

Someone deleted the grass leading down the top skylight tunnel and covered it. I was attempting to aid the garden, but y'know what? I'm not rebuilding it. If anyone else wants to do it, fine, build your own damn grass path.

About the grass thing? Dirt needs to be connected to grass for it to have grass grow on it.

And it needs sunlight. >_>

It's always been that way.

I know. I had it where there was a staircase going up with grass, and then I finally got it up to the sunbase....aaaand then I came back later and the grass was gone.

I gave up and deleted the staircase.

Post by: Kidsoldier on July 06, 2009, 04:40:43 pm
Yesum. I never knew the game had such concepts. Gungnir, it was me that deleted the grass right at the top, because i thought you had made the staircase for getting to the sun and that you thought it was a good idea to place randomly grass blocks all over and it didnt look good for a path. I apologise.

The Lybrinth/Maze is complete I even completed a room at the finish down the bottom it's mostly just something to make it feel like you reached the end. If anyone wants to decorate it so it looks like more thsan just a giant cube sticking out of the lava they are welcome to as long as they don't knock down the roof and any walls or anything. That goes double for inside the maze no digging short cuts.

Finally if it turns out the maze is impossible to complete let me know. I have checked that each floor is completeable although I did find at point during construction someone did wall dig into the side of the bottom floor and walled off the path to the finish so. If you find that maybe someone other areas may have been temptered with just tell me I'll try and fix.

An internet cookie to who ever gets a screen shot of the last room. (Once again not by cheating).

I remember that. It went right to my sun room. I was wondering who built that. Wanted to ask if you could move it a bit just so it did not go directly there but still to the sun. Lets work to rebuild it. We can make it faster and stronger. Just like the 6million peso man.

Hello everyone!  I just finished up my level 3 Menger sponge.  KidSoldier helped me out a lot.  Take a look at it if you get the chance.  BIG green cube, it's hard to miss. 

There's an encased staircase near the edge, all the way to the top.  (It has gold blocks at the entrance)

It's a finished product, and it's a 3d fractal, so please do not add to, or take away from it.

Ok, city map is up and running, the borders are mountains, there are a few caverns in the mountains (8 to be exact), about 1/3 of the grass land is roads, the center of the map is a lake with a beach, there is a parking lot too, I didn't make more roads because I didn't want to limit people to a layout made by me, so if you want to build somewhere else, just make a road there (the only thing I ask is that you keep the pattern/style of the roads I used).

Yeah, I've been having Windows 7 problems all day, I seem to have tracked the problem down anyways. Seems to be solved.

Anyways, I'm going away for 1 month or so sometime in the next 2 weeks, so Gauph will have to host the server then, I can provide him with the city map for him to continue hosting, after that it's up to him if he wants to use the map editor to make big maps or if he'll just use the default generated small maps.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kitkat on July 18, 2009, 08:06:05 pm
Technically, it's not covered, if it was viewed from the other side, the hammer and sickle would be covering up the dollar sign. Following that line of thought and your reaction, it would be equally fair if you were banned.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Raz on July 18, 2009, 08:17:15 pm
It would be seen as facing the wrong direction. He could've built it to the side of it, in which case I would've been fine with it, but he built it directly in front of it. Which is messed up, and blocks the correct angle. He should still be banned, because when I logged in to check and see if he was really talking it down, he started writing nothing but curse words at me.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: eropS on July 18, 2009, 09:14:18 pm
It was still his creation he spent time on, so no, he should not just "Get over it".

Andrew Ryan is in the fault here for deliberately covering his creation, it should have been built to the side. I don't care about the angle because he is obstructing the angle it was meant to be recognized from on purpose. Razonatair may be slightly over reacting in demanding a ban but being hostile towards him (Razon) is unacceptable. If someone covered your creation and then deleted it, you to would be upset. You guys sure as hell aren't helping the situation DEFENDING Andrew instead of simply staying out of it. Andrew did something wrong, and if it was DD's work or someone with more pull you bet Andrew would be temporarily banned.

Sure it might have been all in good fun on Andrew's part, but his joke was taken to offence by the receiver and therefore it is no longer a joke. If I made a sexual joke to a lady friend and she found it offensive, it becomes sexual harassment, a crime. It doesn't matter if it was a joke, it still offended her, just like this offended Razon. The fact it's a joke doesn't make it 'ok' at all.

So be quiet and let him deal this out with DD and Andrew. Defending Andrew and telling him to "get over it" is simply unacceptable and quite frankly I'm a little angry just reading that.
Title: Re: Minecraft

Making the hammer and sickle in minecraft was also significantly harder than Ryan making essentially a rectangular, flat 'dollar', that didn't even bear resemblance to the actual dollar.

I was going to say clearly Raz cares he spent a long time on that. Personally I think it would be nice if people volenteered to help Raz re-build his symbol. If people so wish they can then build symbols of capitalism as well just don't building so the cover up and block anyone elses work.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Hammerman58 on July 18, 2009, 09:38:33 pm
Ya  but nothing is really covered in this game. I mean what about building right next to someone else but the other person doesnt like it there just because on what side it is on. That was just pointless arguing.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: eropS on July 18, 2009, 09:50:49 pm
No, no it wasn't. It was covered in the sense of the main angle when you start, Raz obviously wanted his H&S to be something you saw from the start tower when you look around. Something the dollar purposefully covered. Building NEXT to and building INFRONT of are two different scenarios, Raz's situation being the later of the two. Yes, you could have moved all the way to the back of the lake to see the H&S, but have you seen how much is past the lake? Oh, right, a lone square and Hollywood. Thats it. The main portion is near the start tower, the angle from that was the way you saw the H&S. When Andrew put his dollar in front of his H&S it blocked the H&S from the main line of sight, the line Raz intended for his H&S to be seen. That's the argument, that and Andrew deleting the H&S.

So yes, stuff IS covered in this game.

And if you dont care for the debate this caused, then don't interject, we don't need your opinion if you 'don't care'. I'm tired of this "Razon's out of control" wagon people seem to jump on. So the guy overreacted a tad. Don't suddenly become high and mighty thinking you wouldn't act any different if someone deleted your work. And you certainly shouldn't defend the offender. Just stay out of it.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kidsoldier on July 18, 2009, 10:06:15 pm
Heh. So basically eropS we arent allowed to 'interject' if we either dont care, or are supporting Andrew. You called this a debate. So guess what? Debates have two sides. I chose my side on the basis that he still destroyed Andrews creation without first discussing it with him and asking politely for him to take it down. Andrew was provoked and I would have done the same thing in that situation. (Start Sarcasm) And if you cant handle that then just get out of the debate because obviously only 1 side can fight for what they believe in.(End Sarcasm) Good one eropS.

I can no longer host, starting from today, I should be able to start hosting again sometime next month, I'm moving to another place so it will take a while to get an internet connection up and running and even then I might not be able to host all day. I'll make a compilation of all the vanilla big maps I can find and zip them, gauph can use them or make his own maps in the map editor, or he can just let the game generate a standard map. That is, providing he is willing to start hosting again.

I've learned.  It killed my computer once.   ONCE.  Never again!  My company however hasn't learned and tells us to leave it on. 

So, if any of our computers dies from an automatic update, it's not our problem.

These are the people who make it a point to order name brand HP computers for the warranty and tech support, instead of using the same money to have our techs build us better computers from parts.  We build our own servers for our customers.  So we have the people to build new computers.  And when the HPs die, they never call tech support, they just send the computer back to the techs anyway.  Sigh.

If he has Survival planned out, I don't see a reason not to plan ahead of time for more stuff, also:
" 100% free for anyone who has bought the game!"

So I'm not worried. I'd call BS if he was charging for an expansion pack and already planning it so soon, but it's basically just another gamemode that will be free for those who own it.

hey dark, do you think you could make a mega server for a very little while? I have an idea for a map that requires a lot of space, and you're the only one I think who can do that. The admin of the Archives can archive it, so you only need to keep it up for him to copy it.

something like 512(long) by 100(tall) to 200(wide)

I would be grateful if you could do this. :)

Last time I checked, the maps need to have the same width and length and all 3 (width, length, height) need to be powers of 2.
Title: Re: Minecraft

They don't need to be perfect squares. Rectangle maps work just fine.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: DarkDragon on August 13, 2009, 05:47:38 pm

Once I get my computer back, yes. Right now this one can't even play Minecraft, let alone host.

Also, 512x512x256 isn't possible, uses too many blocks, here are some possibilities:

64x64x8192 = 33,554,432 blocks
128x128x2048 = 33,554,432 blocks
256x256x512 = 33,554,432 blocks
512x512x128 = 33,554,432 blocks
1024x1024x32 = 33,554,432 blocks
2048x2048x8 = 33,554,432 blocks

Basically anything where width*length*height = 33,554,432 or less.
And as I've stated before, width and length need to be the same and all 3 need to be powers of 2.

They don't need to be perfect squares. Rectangle maps work just fine.

Really? last time I tried something other than width=length it would crash.

I never expected it to feel scary. But that map is cursed, I'm sure. YOU WILL SEE!
Actually, you probably won't. YOU'LL ALL BE DEAD BY THEN!
It's the darkness under the cliff, but you can still see the sky, with holes in the floor, so ancient beasts can climb up from the sea, wooden fortifications high in the air, but easily reached from the top of the cliff by the beastmen raiders, long corridors, and when you turn around, they have blocked the exit. There is no escape. (Expect my secret escape tunnel, you have to break a wooden box!)

Or maybe I'm just insane. But you have to ask yourselves, is that a bad thing?

EDIT: And oh, I can't trust the escape tunnel anymore. Every time I use it, I'm afraid They will be waiting on the otherside.
Can't go near it, They're watching. Always watching. Little eyes following.  Following me from below.

*sigh* I was asking if you can use your saved singleplayer maps in survival mode in the first place, that's why I was asked to show the map. We need a sea beast in survival, too, ancient beasts in the depths of the ocean...
It'd be awesome if zombies and skeletons actually blocked the exits. I'm just imagining the monsters now.

Some idiot had destroyed the glass upstairs, so the whole place had to be deflooded. Then when I had deflooded the whole place, THE ADMIN DELETES ANOTHER BARRIER OF  GLASS AND FLOODS THE WHOLE ****ING CAVERN AGAIN!


I left immediately. Nothing like that could've happened on Gaup's server, no sir.
Title: Re: Minecraft

Actually, it happened loads on public day.
Don't you worry. When we get our survival mode, I'll be all over it. Hosting and such.
Though I guess this only matters for those of you who paid. Maybe those that haven't will reconsider if the mode doesn't suck.

Also, quote from dev blog today --
Quote
Survival Mode test for paid customers coming September 1

September 4 I leave for a three week vacation in Indonesia with Elin. Weíre going to spend the entire three weeks island-hopping on a sailboat, and I bought a fairly nice snorkling kit yesterday.

During this time, Iíll have a single player test of Survival Mode up for paid customers. When I get back home, Iíll read all the feedback and perform whatever changes are needed, then work on making it multi-player compatible. This involves adding a lot of additional security to the game server, such as preventing wallhacks and flying.

(Donít worry, if you play on a server with flying and wallhacks and enjoy playing like that, you can turn off the added security from the server settings.)

Three week vacation.


That is.. a long time. :|

Notch was on irc today and answered questions about the future of the game.

- Enemies have preferences on where to spawn. Zombies like to spawn in caves, etc.
- There will be animals (http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/4102/pigs.png)
- Animals can breed
- There will be farming
- There might be ingame sprinting without the use of hacks (in sandbox mode)
- He likes the idea of weather
- He likes the idea of mushrooms giving you trippy side effects (:D)
- He will add a 3D glasses feature during the beta
- No fish
- There will be clipping (You can even push people off cliffs. :O)
- The game is strictly a midevil setting.
- The AI will cheat sometimes.
- Food will restore HP.
- He messed up while making pigs once. He made the abominations an enemy. (http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/2056/ohgod.png)
- It's likely that we'll have the ability to wear hats in sandbox mode.
- Water will be used for irrigation and farming. (Duh)
- It's very possible for somebody to just go to a corner of a map and wall off the rest of the enemies and live there. It just won't be very fun.
- No kittens. (Catsplosions)
- He'll see if he can get anvils, craftshops, kitchens, etc. (DF buildings) in survival mode.
- If you want you can script new properties for blocks (water portals, etc) but he does not want people to actually add any new blocks or graphics.
- He might use E for interactions (Just confirmed on the blog. :V)
- He does not know what Obama's healthcare plan is. (People were asking him random questions by this point. :P)
- There will be ragdoll physics.
- If he does not finish the beta by September 1st he will release what he has done so far.

There were a lot more questions he answered, but they were all random questions like "What is your favorite RTS?" or "What is the meaning of life?", or "What is the square root of 245?"

So... yeah.

my email to notch :p
Dear Notch,

Hello Notch this is a VERY great idea of features for Survival. The first is When you go to pigs and hit E they will follow behide you so you can put them in a fenced area and then hit E again to make them run around randomly. Another Pigs cant jump only if they are following you. And the last thing is when you get 30 leafs you can make a Rope. Ropes are used for captureing Npcs like once you get a NPC they will follow like a pig but they will guard you so if a enemy npc is nearby they will fight to the death but they will have the SAME health as when they were captured and if you hit E on them they will stand still and attack anyone that gets close you you can make forts with them guarding. Pigs cant fight either but you probally already did that and the NPCS you captured will attack people you say it should on TAB.

From,
Summoner

A Summary of ALL OF THAT
-Pigs Follow You and do stuff you do like jumping When you hit E it stops and runs randomly
-30 leafs = Rope
-Ropes capture npcs and they will follow you and guard you and attack all npcs near you and has the same health when you captured it. When you hit E it will stay guard and attack anything near it
-Npcs you captured can attack people you only attack the people you click on TAB

Server is back, generated a normal Minecraft map and then resized it to huge size, then smoothed it. However this created a peculiar being called a giant floating tree, this kind of tree in particular is sacred for its floating abbilities, it's worse enemy is LAVA. So, now we can have magmists and treeists, let's go religion people!

With the help of Josasa, this bridge is almost done.

Also, Minecraft was updated with new rendering calculations so people with low-mid range graphics cards might notice up to a 50% increase in performance.

To all OPs on my server, we now have a spawn prison because of a guy who joined just to destroy the bridge, then insulted "us" as in everyone who plays on the server and left, he's banned now and the bridge is fixed but to keep this from happening I've made a spawn prison so whenever an op connects to the server, I ask that you close it after leaving, if someone you don't know joins, let them out and keep an eye on them once in a while by teleporting, after a few days without misbehaving I guess we can let them run lose.

So none at the moment. Although if you ask Gauphastus really nicely, maybe, just maybe, he'll host one again.

I loaded up my sandbox level in survival mode and was exploring a long and winding cave system. Eventually it got to a dead end and I turned around. I didn't get very far when I saw a wall of magma, creeping slowly and inexorably towards me. Sure I could escape, I started running back along the cavern looking for side tunnels I had missed. There were none, and I died slowly and terrified.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on September 08, 2009, 04:15:25 pm
Haha.
Sounds like what I was telling Celdur about. What probably happened there is that a creeper fell down enough times to take mortal damage, and ended up blowing a hole in a magma chamber -- on the other side of the map.
They're like little, ugly, green griefers.

I love that.

A few things Miclee. Summoners map is quite fun and I don't find it ugly at all. And another thing, I have 'griefed' between 6 and 10 maps. Does that make me a griefer?

I don't think survival is worth buying the game for (at least right now), but it does have a discount while its in alpha, and survival is still a lot of fun. Half the time I play Minecraft I play Survival mode, and I've never gotten any bugs myself.

What did i ever do to the GS server? But i was banned because Gdude and Bjabza a lower admins started trolling and then i got blammed for the stuff they did so they started a fight and made griefs to make it look like i did it to get me banned. So i said before i was banned Im leaveing forever Aera you send me the map when beta comes out. Then i got a message from one of my friends from there Sera he said Aera gave it to Gdude and Bjzaba and gude have trolled but have took over with RP and the RP is crazy and forced so people are leaveing.

Because repeating the same name that he clearly doesn't know the meaning of (and which looks like an acronym) will help his understanding. Let me help you.

DOGA, a freeware 3-d modeling/animation program.

There's a sort of hacky half-working version of survival mode multiplayer being shared around. Notch didn't make it though. Someone just fiddled with some files.
So yeah, hacky and half-working. Keep that in mind if you go looking for it. I don't want anything to do with that stuff.

Ha ha! I just placed a fire block, went on an errand, and an hour later, all that remained was a few charred trunks! I.E. It was very realistic, I applaud Notch.

EDIT: Holy crap! I was on a small, dark map, and wanted a little light. I made a small campfire, in a small pit with some trees far above. I go to gather supplies, and see some light over the hills. I come back, the fire has JUMPED from my campfire, five blocks above it, burning up the forest.

Don't play with fire, kids.

Yeah, I tried it out earlier. Certainly needs a bit of work, but it's pretty cool.

Managed to fill a series of caves underground. Got myself down to 0 FPS. :P

EDIT: Oh, he apparently couldn't sleep. Something about the water was bugging him.
Figured out the slowdown was caused by a really dumb bug, so he fixed it. Optimize finite water is off the todo list, and now we've got a water spawner block we can use.

Try it on the topmost level of islands. It's great. And it takes like forever for my FPS to even start going down (I'm talking tens of thousands of blocks of water).

Word to anyone in on the /indev/ scene, we now have storage chests.
And other stuff of course.

+ Chest blocks
+ Sounds for arrows
+ Lava sets stuff on fire again
+ When dropping a stack of items, you drop them all instead of one at a time
+ Stacks in the world change graphics based on how many there are in the stack

I heard that Notch was going to do crafting but put it off for today. We'll probably have a whack at it within the week.

Did anyone notice how lumping together TNT begins to act as a small nuclear bomb? I filled my house with the stuff, ignited it, ran like hell, then looked back, and there stood a crater roughly 25 blocks across (about 4 times the size of the volume of the house).

I was mining in a cave and got bored; I used up my 100 or so TNT filling up the end of the cave. This hole extended all the way to the surface (the hole was about 8 times the size of the bomb)

I've been messing around with nothing but TNTs in indev. I completely cut through a floating island. There were just a hole with two large cliffs on either side.

If you create a small hole with TNTs, you can find the point around the side of the crater where there's the furthest sudden drop off. Make a TNT just off that ridge, above the drop. Detonate it and it falls to the base. You can hold the right mouse button and detonate a tonne of TNT, each one falling to the bottom and exploding. I've reached admincrete doing this.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kitkat on January 29, 2010, 03:59:34 pm
Crafting isn't messed up.

To craft a shovel:

first, build two sticks, use wood and the Inventory crafting menu. Then, close the inventory and open direct crafting (B). Next, arrange the two sticks one on top of the other, and put either a wood block or a diamond (actually supposed to be emerald, but it looks like diamond) block, put away any blocks you're holding, and take the shovel out of the slot. You now have a shovel.

Looks as if a happy medium has been found between the characters. There appears to be a black and a white male, no Rana, though.

EDIT: and, from a house loaded with materials, we now have two torches, nothing more. Crafting tables have been implemented. Build one by putting four wood blocks in the inventory crafting area.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on January 31, 2010, 05:52:26 am
I guess I'm just used to the laid back hanging out on our IRC channel. Minecraft's IRC is extremely strict, which I guess I can understand seeing as there's always like 100 people on there at a time.
When Notch comes on, it just gets downright mental.
I guess the forums aren't that bad really. Just wish the community had more cohesion, and somehow I don't think they'll ever have any.
Moderation kind of sucks a bit, bunch of newjacks that don't really know what they're supposed to be doing. They can be a bit lock-happy too, kinda reminds me of the Spoony Experiment forums.
To be quite honest, I'm afraid to post anything. What can I say?

Eh, it's nitpicking.

I guess it's just me. I'm so stuck on the way things work around here and Bay12, I can't easily connect there.
Doesn't matter much though. I know from my hosting experience that you can meet some pretty cool and creative folks in-game, which is the most important part after all.  :P

Anyways!
I was thinking of drawing more fanart, probably of these three new NPC dudes that all look pretty much the same.
Some sorta groupshot, unless I can come up with something funny.

Odd... Whenever i do the indev, the game locks up and wont let me do anything.
First of all, you could try upgrading or reinstalling Java.
Secondly, what browser are you using? You could try switching browsers, that could help.
Also, I've read on Notch's todo list that there's a problem with the game on Macs, so if you have one, that could be it too.
Title: Re: Minecraft

Sunday night update

+ Title screen! No more automatic level generation on start.
+ Updated to LWJGL 2.2.2 (should fix ATi startup crash)
+ Remade the mouse handling. Itís slightly laggier now, but it works on multiple windows and when losing focus in linux
+ Some eye candy in water
+ Switched out the map load/save dialogs to use AWT dialogs. Theyíre not as fancy (no file name filtering), but they should be more reliable. This will all be ingame menus later on, but Iím lazy at the moment.
+ Added support for the old models, so I can finally add some real monsters to indev.
+ Some minor bugfixes.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on January 31, 2010, 06:00:26 pm
If you attack the new.. old mob guy, he has a spaz attack. It's pretty funny.
Apparently it's worse when you light them on fire but apparently nobody knows how to make flint now.

This is kinda the problem I was talking about with the crafting system. For a long time, it's going to be all about checking a recipe list on a wiki, or learning by word of mouth from other players.
At the very least, you should unlock a recipe list online that you can access in-game. Then again, that doesn't help you figure out half of these oddball combinations on your own..

Well, we'll just see how this goes.

Oh, hey. Two new themes.

Quote from: Notch the Cool
Visible player hand and new level themes

Now in indev:

Paradise Theme:
Being the polar opposite of Hell, these levels has sand everywhere, and the sun never sets. Great for building secure surface bases or sunbathing!

Woods Theme:
Darker nights, darker days, and more trees than you should ever wave a flint and steel at. There are plenty of mushrooms to go around, too!

EDIT:
(http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/729/trees.png)
Dude, look at all them trees.
What a sight to behold.


Well then, let's burn it all down.

EDIT2:
(http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8771/treesburn.png)
BURN BOBONGA

EDIT3:
(http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/2589/treesburnt.png)

Good times.


EDIT4: And uh, apparently health regenerates now.


EDIT5: If you can stand waiting, generate a Flat Long Huge Woods map.

That's why all my (important) structures are made of cobblestone.

This is my base, simply called "Cool Base One"

(http://i546.photobucket.com/albums/hh412/GalacticWeirdo/CoolBase1.png)

It has a forge, a small tree farm, wheat farm, and protected entrance. Not pictured is the room at the top of the "lighthouse" for viewing the landscape, and a small tunnel leading to a mine across the island.

Title: Re: Minecraft

Honestly, it was a happy accident. I was digging the tree farm, and I was digging a little too vigorously. Eventually I stopped looking where I stepped, and plowed right into a hole which dropped me inches away from fiery death at the edge of a massive lava pit. I hastily blocked off the dark shore farther away, built a protective wall, and built a small stairway up to the main complex.

Everytime i play indev i make a base but never get it functional for night (Skeles and their arrows  :roll: ) but i finally got one and this is a story of why i hate creepers and spiders.

(http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/9259/minecraftsunset.png)
My first sunset without death (Day 1)

The base is really small and is mostly the entrance of a cave but had a balcony and crafting area and most of cave was blocked off till tommorow

Day 2

I open the door to explore cave and put torches and is very small but out of nowhere i hear tssssssssssssss and then kaboom a creeper exploded and made a huge hole to surface. I filled the top of hole and made the huge room a farm. I go outside get wood and its night already.

Day 3

I go outside look for seeds thats all.Got no seeds, so i go back to base

Day 4

Its morning i open my door and about 20 spiders run in and start mauling me i run out and a creeper comes out of nowhere explodes and breaks the bridge and so me and the spiders fall to our deaths.


All that work geting coal,fixing,digging, all wasted in couple seconds.

I did that today, and built a 5 block tall wall of rock, along with a big castle and a pretty deep mine where I got it all out from, and a garden where I get wood from, then burn the remains and plant new trees for more wood.

Dodged a bullet there. He was about to add an experience and level system to the game, but he changed his mind.
I think the game deserves some more thought than that, not just to add your basic artificial progression.

EDIT: Whoops. Didn't RTFA. That's not what it was about.
It's an attempt to create a system that will in the end penalize you for death. So basically we're trying to avoid that 24-hour respawn bull**** people were suggesting earlier over there.
Creating a lite experience and levelling system wouldn't completely turn it into an RPG. It's just a means to let yourself build up, and then be able to be punished when you're killed.

Wear armor, make sure you can hit them, and not otherwise, and don't get too close unless you have to.

On a side note, glitchy third person view (press F5), leaves deteriorate when the tree doesn't touch ground, and working armor.

It's a normal sized, deep woods map.

Download it, improve it and upload it. (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3PS834V3)

Obviously don't go overboard and completely revamp the base, only keep it for a while, and do NOT start a forest fire. :P

New update in indev!

To smelt, you need to build a furnace. Hint: theyíre made out of rock.
Furnaces need something combustable and something burnable to work. Once they do, they spit out the result every now and then. You can leave them alone while they do their thing, itís pretty easy to spot when itís done at a distance.

I tweaked the loot around a bit:

Sheep: Drops nothing.
Pigs: Drops porkchops.
Creeper: Drops that strange powder thingie. (Sulphur? Gunpowder? Who knows.)
Spiders: Drops string.
Skeletons: Drops arrows.
Zombies: Drops feathers. Naturally. (I should add chickens. soon.)

To get flint and steel, you need to craft it. Where could you find flint? Hmm..

I spent a day-and-a-half working on a base. It's a lighthouse like the old one, but has a main entrance level, a storage second level, a central stairway, a big farm, a tree farm, a forge and small crafting alcove near   it, and an entrance to a huge lava cave. With diamonds. It's a little haphazardly built, but that's due in part to the underground rooms' original purpose as a mine.

-EDIT-Also, why can't I access Dark's server? Is it still being repaired?

I'm just getting the basic scripts ready:

- Water, lava, lamp and grass building for ops (meaning if you place a lamp underground, grass nearby won't die out.
- Solid blocks for ops.
- small trees turn into big trees.
- small mushrooms turn into giant mushrooms!

Also planned is a snow script that makes white blocks fall from the sky and disappear when they hit the ground and slowly turns grass to white blocks :D

Post by: Gauphastus on February 21, 2010, 07:19:24 pm
You guys see the vote he's having up on his dev page?
Hell, I'll quote the whole thing. It's amazing.

Quote
I have a potentially game breaking idea.. Do? Not do?

This will delay the game by AT LEAST two months. Itís a major rewrite. But I can do it.

Infinitely large maps.

When you start the game, only the area nearest to the player is generated. When you move closer to the edge of this, more map is generated, and the areas you move away from gets saved to disc. Only areas near the player gets updated, so trees wonít grow far away from you, and farms will stop working.

The world will probably get generated in blocks of 64*64*64 tiles, and itíd be all seamless. You could walk for miles, build a base, then walk back and build another base.

This would be both in singleplayer and multi player.

Advantages:
You will never run out of space.
You will never run out of resources.
Travel between several planes of existance, so ďhellĒ could be a real plane you can visit. And the moon too, possibly!
There could be NPC villages and monster towns.
Truly epic sized multiplayer servers, lasting for a long time.


Disadvantages:
Saved games would grow larger and larger over time. Hard drives are pretty big, so itís probably not going to be a problem.
The fog would have to get shorter, probably maxed out at around the second longest view distance now.
Multiplayer servers would require a lot of ram unless it constraints players to a certain area. (at least 32 mb per player, probably more, if theyíre far away from each other)
No online saving! To share a level you have to manually give it to your friend.
Some slight lag while the game generates or loads the next zone.

I voted yes with gusto. Go for it. We should probably be able to find out early on whether or not this is going to even work; any kinks that come along that aren't covered here might also be worked out.

What do you guys think? This would certainly be something worth paying 30 bucks for, in my opinion.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kishmond on February 21, 2010, 08:08:58 pm
I think it's far too dark underwater. Exploring sunken caves is impossible.

Oh yes, infinite maps are also cool. The only drawback I care about is decreased fog distance. I dislike fog.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on February 21, 2010, 08:11:08 pm
Man, the Minecraft forums are abuzz over this idea.
Just know that if he does go through with this everything will grind to a halt. He says as much.
I imagine it'd be set up in cells like in Morrowind or Oblivion.


Here's a sweet post I snagged off the forum.
Quote from: thecraww
I think all the naysayers here haven't been fully hit by the implications of infinite space. I can't even begin to fully grasp how much could be done with a system like this. Imagine if hell were literally under you. You just dug thousands of layers TOO FAR and broke through to this underground sea of lava dotted with islands of pain. Imagine a giant superhighway of cobblestone, spanning miles of map and connecting major settlements. Imagine the islands, out in the middle of the oceans. With pirate fortresses and hidden treasure.

There would be NO LIMIT other than your hard drive. You could just go. You could just pick a direction and go. And nothing would stop you. How can this not be appealing? I am once again fantastically grateful for the incredible value I'm going to get out of this game.

I'm also seeing an astounding lack of faith in Notch's development skills. Minecraft shattered my perceptions of a great game before we even had survival mode. Who's to say it can't shatter them again?

Until Notch says it can't be done, I'll believe wholeheartedly that it can.


Yeah, Kishmond. Imagine how deep oceans would be with this thing available. I don't doubt diving gear would be craftable in that case.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kitkat on February 21, 2010, 08:33:06 pm
Vehicles would be handy. Can you imagine traveling across a gigantic main continent on a train or by horse and carriage? Or a mine extending to the very depths of hell?

The possibilities, literally, are endless.

If Minecraft goes retail, that should soooo be the catchphrase.

What he said. Hell, I generate SMALL maps because I like the close, homey feel of My Island, My base, My work. Turning the small plot of land given to me into My home. I dunno, I voted do whatever because infinite is too much, but others want it and I don't want to say no for my own self interest, but, it'd get confusing and as Kidsoldier said, how would you not get lost? Drop a torch every 5 blocks?

You'd have a reason to make road networks and stuff. Manmade and natural landmarks.
Don't forget about those signs you're supposed to be able to put down. Road signs!

I don't doubt that a compass item would become necessary for this.

I'm interested in seeing how this thing turns out in any case, if he goes through with it.

I voted "do what you think is best."  I'm on the fence about it.  On the one hand it sounds like it would be great in the long run, but on the other hand, it sounds like more trouble than it's worth.   I would like him to focus on getting the game into the game first.  But this is, pun intended, a game changer and would change the way he approaches the game aspect of it.

I don't doubt that a compass item would become necessary for this.

To gather material just to know where north is seems like an annoying task, rather than something fun. Plus that would make it a priority item that you would have to have in your backpack constantly. If that was the case.

It's better to just put a compass on the corner of the screen. There's a point on how "realistic" a game should be, and I think that's it.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kidsoldier on February 22, 2010, 02:37:42 am
Well, he could make it so that you could set a marker spot (not visible obviously) and then just have an arrow at the top of the screen pointing to it all the time, as to ensure you know the direction to travel to find your way home.

you arnt forced to walk, and its easy to make landmarks, or just remember natural ones.

and if you have massive maps you could actualy claim land for your own, its not like there isnt enough space for that, otherwise you sort of have to share whats there.

I'd actually appreciate it if he could make it so that the huge maps were faster, though I don't know how much more optimization we can squeeze out.

Eagle, neither does anyone else here if my info is correct. It's an odd suggestion, basically an extreme take on death penalty in the game.

It could be much more optimized if he made the game in chunks of 128x128x128 and generate LODs for every new area (Levels of Detail) meaning as you move further appart the land becomes a picture (think of it as a 3d skybox) and it slowly loads the land as you approach it.

I think he mentioned traines once. I imagine trains would be made of wood and stone, maybe some iron, and be fed by coal much like a furnace.

I'm for the map thing, even if it does take a bit more time. If notch manages to create an exchange between players, then a minecraft server could become almost as dynamic as the real world. If an area has a high population, the players could agree to set aside some members to guard the area, or a group of players could take control of the area by force. Large-scale irrigation and building projects would be possible, and a perimeter could be established to keep a specific town mob-free. While even the largest limited server, there still wouldn't be enough room to form more than one town, let alone empires and kingdoms.

Notch is definitely going through with the infinite maps plan (http://notch.tumblr.com/post/406772885/i-will-add-infinite-maps-heres-the-plan).
Basically, he's going to do this in steps, so it's not like we won't see anything for two months. It does mean that some features will be (temporarily) removed, such as finite water. But hey, at least we'll get infinite maps.
Read Notch's post for the full story, it's pretty interesting if you care about the (near) future of Minecraft.

Well Pixxel said you came in, deopped everyone then griefed the server but nobody was deopped on the admin list so either he lied or something weird went on.

I did not lie, that's what happend. Ask Josasa he's a witness.

Yeah, Pixxel is right. Both he and I were deopped by 'alwayswatching' and then the griefing started.

I see, that alwayswatching had a lower case a while our Alwayswatching has an upper case one, apparently op identification is fail.

I just realized Notch is a Super-Developer.

Feb 11: "Ok, I give. I'll add a night/day cycle to the game."

The very next day: "Day/night cycle in indev!"

Feb 5: "I'll start doing stuff tomorrow."

Feb 6: "Here's some stuff, oh and farming."

I wonder how long infinite maps will take.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gauphastus on February 23, 2010, 07:31:11 pm
Well, he's gotta rewrite multiplayer to do a whole bunch of fancy stuff just so it works.
Hope he learns a lot from this. In the event that infinite maps turns out to be a dud, he can still walk away with a good chunk of knowledge.

Might be able to apply that to Minecraft down the line, or to other projects.


He is pretty damn good though. Speedy little bugger. :P

I know what you mean. I've been wanting that multi so bad.
But if he did it now, he'd just have to redo it later.

On the other hand, if he wasn't doing infinite maps at all, we wouldn't have this problem.

Anyways, I think I should let you know the current client level descriptions in my server:

100 - Master OP (red) - Can build and destroy water/lava/grass/solid, bring people to him, teleport to people, kick and ban.
90 - OP (green) - Can build and destroy water/lava/grass and build but not destroy solid, bring people of the same or lower level to him, teleport to people, kick and ban.
80 - Builder (green) - Can build and destroy water/lava/grass and teleport to people.
50 - Special Member (grey) - Can join the server without having bought the game.
10 - Any other person who owns the game/normal client (black)

Show other players respect. If what summoner said about you calling people offensive names is true, then it may be grounds for banning.

Again, Celdur is our slave.

Anyways, a bunch of news for you all:

I changed server software, this should be permanent. I'm now using MinerCPP, a lot faster, bla bla bla, awesome commands, ranks, etc.

The server is public, allows anyone in BUT only users and above can build, guests can only build in the guest area! Meaning no griefers while we all sleep. You can also use commands to protect your blocks so that only admins can delete them. Tomorrow I'll transfer the user ranks from the old server and post a list of commands for you all. Obviously new map too, 512x512x128

The server is now called DarkDragon's Naughty Harem and here are some screenies of the guest area and the map:

DD's server is down.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: DarkDragon on February 28, 2010, 07:22:18 am
Yeah, extremely sorry guys. Last night about 20 minutes after I posted about my new server my computer crashed and I couldn't get it booting again (it would boot on freeze), even trying to repair it would freeze. Anyways after all possible things I could do to solve it I decided to open it up, let it cool down, reset the bios, cleaned the dust inside with a mini-vaccum cleaner for keyboards so I left it shining new and it booted, now just going to run a registry repair and it will be up in a few minutes.

EDIT:

Server is up now, here is a list of commands depending on your rank (which you can find out by looking at your name color):

Quote
/help normal - Normal help topics
/help ranks - View player ranks and associated player classes
/help build - Help regarding building and materials
/help users - User-interraction and OP help

/me [action] - A simple action command.
(e.g. "/me is the king" = * DarkDragon is the king *)

/pinfo [name] - View specified player's class and rank
(e.g. "/pinfo DarkDragon" tells me I'm the owner and level 255)

@[name] [message] - Send someone a private message (Not logged by the server)
(e.g. "@Alwayswatching you're a noob")

#[message] - Send a message viewable to OP and higher only
(e.g. "#jake2816 is a griefer" tells the OPs about that user being a griefer without him noticing)

/mute - mute a player, disallowing him to say, privsay, write to opchat and run commands.
(e.g. "/mute Celdur" would stop him from saying anything at all in the server)

/setblock or /set - water, lava, grass, or air you can use w, l, g, or a (Air can be used to delete liquids)
(e.g. "/setblock water" allows you to build water)

/paint - Replace blocks instead of remove
(e.g. "/paint" - When I dig a block with another block selected, the block that is dug gets replaced)

/dense - Place blocks only Admin+ can remove
(e.g. "/dense" - Any block I place can only be deleted by an admin or higher, great for protection against griefers)

/rock , /r or /solid - Place unbreakable stone
(e.g. "/solid" - Allows me to place unbreakable stone that only admins can delete)

/action or /a - Place two blocks, then use one of the actions below
(e.g. "/action" - Turns action on, place 2 blocks of the desired type and use one of the actions below)

ACTION: /draw or /d - Draw a line, plane, or cube between your action blocks
ACTION: /harden - Turn everything between your action blocks dense (only admin+ can delete)
ACTION: /soften - Turn everythins between your action blocks non-dense (non-protected blocks)
ACTION: /copy - Copy the area between your action blocks
ACTION: /guest - set guest area (guests can build and destroy here and only here until they're turned into members)
ACTION:   /restore [filename] - The area between you action blocks will be loaded and restored. (Not quite sure what this does)

NOTE 1: Once you're done with your actions, type /action again to turn it off and build normally.
NOTE 2: All of the commands work on all axii, meaning you can place 1 block at the bottom left-back-lower corner of your building
   and another at the top-front-upper corner, then use the /copy command, the building will be copied wherever you create
   another block, the origin being where you placed the first action block and the orientation is the same.

/clearguest - Clear all non-dense blocks from the guest area
(e.g. "/clearguest" will clear anything built by guests in the guest area, we know how much they like to build naughty stuff)

/tp [name] - Teleport to specified player
(e.g. "/tp Josasa" teleports me to Josasa)

/bring [name] - Teleport specified player to you
(e.g. "/bring Pixxel" brings Pixxel to me)

/say [message] or /s [message] - Broadcast message in yellow text
(e.g. "/say I AM YOUR GOD" will say that as a server message)

/user [name] [rank] - Change a user's rank (Can only set to a maximum of yours minus 50)
(e.g. "/user Badger 50" will make Badger a normal member)

/hide - Hide from players of a lower rank than yours
(e.g. "/hide" will make me disappear from the user list and become invisible for lower leveled members)

/kick [name] - Kick specified player
(e.g. "/kick Alwayswatching" will kick Always' ass when he disrespects me)

/ban [name] - Ban specified player
(e.g. "/ban Summoner" will ban Summoner just for fun)

/unban [name] - Unban specified player
(e.g. "/unban Summoner" will allow him to come back, because we don't really want Summoner banned :P)

I was in for a minute but I couldn't log in. It was frustrating.
I'm pretty sure I made a justin.tv account for broadcasting a few months back. Didn't use it, but still.

So Notch is rethinking the water system for infinite maps. I figured he might do that.

Quote from: Get ye Notch
Finite water will not work on infinite maps, and water has never really behaved predictable and well anyway. Iīm instead going to try a model that focuses on making water do what one WANTS it to do, as a player, rather than on trying to make it simulate some kind of blocky physics thingie.

The idea is to make a purely local model, with two types of water: Flowing and Static.

* Static water doesnīt move as long as itīs on top of ground or other water, and will spawn Flowing water next to it on any free tiles.

* Flowing water has a direction, which is visible in the texture, and will push object in it along. Flowing water will never be more than two tiles deep, and will flow towards the nearest lower tile within a small radius (5 blocks?) of its location.

* Flowing water not connected to static water will turn into air.

* Small bodies of static water turn into flowing water if thereīs a slope nearby.

There are some quirks with this system, such as small lakes being able to sustain infinite waterfalls and so, but it gives the control of creating and removing lakes firmly in the hands of the player.

Unflooding a cave will be as easy as just closing the hole, and the flowing water will go away.

And since this is a purely local model, it works in infinite, and is MUCH faster than the old system.

I guess with all that said, I don't mind so much.
Sacrifices have to be made. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if he even went and axed night and day, but that's just me.

This kind of water seems far better than what we have now. Far less of a hassle.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Lippy on March 01, 2010, 05:04:36 pm
The only way I could see him making water work "realistically" would be to do it as a fluid simulation using particles.  Even though he already has particles and pretty good physics (see the little blocks you pick up and how they fall and move), the end result would be far too CPU intensive, as well as still looking off because it's blocks of water, instead of fluid. 

If it's better than how it works now, I won't mind it.  Basically, just make it easy to unflood caves, yet still have the option to flood them if you want.

Assuming you're not talking to the two Darkov's who've never been active, or the one active two years ago,
I said I have tried it straight from the site, and DarkDragon kind of recommended WoM for this, and despite that it clearly says

Always complained the latest map was sucky so I pushed the boundaries and generated a 512x512x256 map, might do 1024x1024x128, which one do you prefer? less height in favour of more horizontal space?

Quote
*Seasons have been delayed, Survival Multiplayer has moved up in priority and is now the first task after infinite worlds!
*Carryable light sources are now a possibility. He ruled them out initially as taking too much processing power because of the way lighting worked, but with the new lighting system it may be feasible, and you can even have colored light (glowing fungus, orange-tinted lanterns, etc)
*Torches will eventually burn out, but lanterns (harder to make) will last forever
*Multiplayer competitive modes with an end goal are planned. He used an example of two teams having an 'altar' at which gold must be burned away for points, and after a week (real time, but just an example) whoever had the most points would win and a new map would generate. He said since gold would burn off slowly the teams could raid each others' bases to steal their unburned gold. Evidently this was just one example of such a mode. This, of course, on top of normal or more open multiplayer modes.
*He really likes the idea of carts to carry large amounts of resources over long distances (esp. with infinite maps) but isn't quite sure how to deal with their moving restrictions.
*Ramp tiles may eventually be added since he dislikes the current half-blocks so much and doesn't want to add more of them.
*Future mobs and enemies will be fantasy themed, his example included kobolds and goblins. He said he really liked the idea of finding a goblin village while exploring in infinite mode, for example. Goblins will be small and swarming, while things like trolls will be huge and can throw destructive boulders. Golems were also confirmed.
*On that note, "Monster Towns" will be one of many things you can find in Infinite mode. Again, he mentioned the possibility of many goblins living there. You can play around with them or try and destroy them.
*The game will eventually have ragdolls for all models.
*He talked about making the crafting tree much deeper, but says he'll keep the actual method.
*Magic and Enchanting are planned but he hasn't really worked out any details yet, which is why we don't know anything about how it'll function.
*Apparently he gets less than 40% of all money, since paypal takes a few percent and Swedish taxes on it are roughly 60% (but hey he gets almost-free healthcare!)
*As of June 1st he's quitting his job to work solely on Minecraft.
*You can in fact haul lava with buckets, if you're using a suitable material.
*Zoos and the like are feasible since it will be possible to move and keep animals more easily, and they won't despawn.
*Smaller, weaker enemies may come in large groups
*Maps, compasses, and clocks are all confirmed, the latter two using animated textures.
*Like walking in the original Prince of Persia, crouching will make it so you can't fall off ledges, thus making crouching an easy way to build bridges!
*Diamond will last longer and be even better, right now Notch thinks it sucks.
*People keep asking for ladders, so he might end up adding them. But "ladders SUCK in games! Remember that time you fell off a ladder in [ANY FIRST PERSON SHOOTER HERE] and died? Or when you got stuck to one? Yeah, good times."
*He's going to attempt to make not only carts that can carry large amounts of goods over long distances (for things like caravan trains, trading between nations, moving to a new settlement) but also mine carts.
*There will be a downloadable offline version sometime during beta (that is, when MP survival mode is up).
*Megabeasts are again confirmed, and should hopefully be fun, and a challenge no matter how well-equipped you are, but never just annoying and uncontrollable like Sim City disasters.
*Mobs that can destroy blocks are confirmed, so you can no longer just camp out in a dirt-doored hut and be fully safe. However, "it has to be in some obvious way. Coming back to a ruined house when you weren't even around to stop it would be no fun. But seeing a couple of lava golems advance on your settlement and know they'd mess it up bad if they reach it would be quite fun indeed."
*Wild speculation on magic/enchanting: "I'm thinking you find ingredients by killing monsters (harder to farm), then you assemble them with some kind of alchemy, and attach it to items that decay when you use them. So if you manage to get a Sword of Being Cool +2, you might still want to avoid it because of the damage thing. Hopefully it's fun."
*Seasons: Leaves change color, more rain during the spring and fall, colder weather during the winter, causing the upper layer of still water to freeze into ice blocks (only when connected to land or other ice blocks, though, so it'd slowly spread), and snow falling to the ground, creating loads of snow blocks everywhere.
*Smoke blocks may be added, necessitating a chimney.
*The ability to play as monsters would be possible, he says, and in fact very easy. But if you didn't have an inventory survival mode would probably get boring.

That's some sweet info, Eagle. Thanks.

Quote
Remaining (in order I will add them):

* Layered lighting engine
* Entity logic
* Tile entities (Chests, furnaces)
* Tile ticking (growing farms, spreading grass and fire, water flowing)
* Switch water back to infinite temporarily
* Caves
* More advanced level generator with different climate zones and such. This can be done much later, if needed.

Done:

* Basic decorator pattern for chunk sources
* Infinite level generator
* Stable physics at extreme distances
* Stable rendering at extreme distances
* Doubled the rendering distance to 256 meters

The Layered lighting engine was suggested by Asmodean (I hope I spelled that right) on IRC, and will make day/night transitions almost instantaneous at the cost of some extra RAM. It would also enable carried light sources at the cost of even more RAM.

The decorator pattern for chunks means itís easy to split up the logic for different ďlevelĒ sources, such as having a pseudorandom level generator wrapped in a disk cache wrapped in a memory cache, or switch that entire structure out for a memory cached network chunk source for multiplayer.
It took me a while to arrive at this design, mostly because of my chaotic development philosophy (get it to work, then refactor if the code is bad), but Iím really happy with it now.

The lighting is the big hold up at the moment, I expect most of the remaining things to go pretty fast, except for caves and the very vague final point, which I suspect will be an ongoing process for the rest of the game development time.

Once infinite is done, I will put it up as a replacement for indev, then work on survival mode multiplayer.

And here's another article about exactly what the new lighting system is all about.
It's a bunch of math and such. Have a look if you like.

I hope when he adds lanterns that the light spread of that one will be big, because making a lot of them could get incredibly annoying.

Usually when I play, I just modify the starter shack to accommodate my needs. A two-block wall around the base stops creepers from exploding, and I can pick monsters off easily, so I usually never bother to start from scratch and build a base. So I decided to give it a shot.

Out with the old:

In with the new:

The top floor, then the bottom. I use the top as a workplace, and the bottom for displaying my gathered minerals.

Infdev update: trees and furnaces
Infdevís been updated:

* Working tile entities (furnaces, chests)
* Trees and forests
* Way fewer crash bugs
* Ore (just randomly placed at the moment)

Next up is tile ticking (farms, spreading fire, that stuff) and level saving/loading.

Left to do after that is splitting out the level generator code into a separate thread to avoid the choppy framerate when moving into unexplored areas, adding cave generation code, making the water dynamic again, and writing a level importer.

Furnaces don't work yet because of the tile ticking, but because of the way the ore's placed, there's diamonds in plain sight on walls.

Also, 64 TNT.

Edit: Sweet bejeezus.

the new level generator is cool and all, but it looks a bit... off. Something about it, maybe it looks too smooth or something. That, and the unusually surreal look of it.

I like it. The surrealness makes it less boring.

I found a tall rock spire in the middle of nothing and carved a stairwell in it and climbed up on top, there I constructed a sweet tower.

Then I fell down and died to death.

Did you come back to see your corpse?

It certainly was an unusual occasion, having to dig my own grave after I had died. Although I certainly have made a resolution NOT to fall down the stairs again.

Woot, lighting glitch fixed, planting torches and trees no longer crashes the game and monster + animal spawns in infdev, it's finally in the equivalent playable state of indev :D

Yeah.  Caves aren't in yet.  He's still got a few other things left to do, like flowing water.

In his tweets he mentioned caves will be in before MP.  He'll probably get to caves when he optimizes the map generation. 

Pork Chops no longer stack when you cook them...drat! 

Those big trees are fun to burn down!  ;D

Put in a little pack with Wrapper clients for Indev and Infdev and the WoM Client for Online and Creative modes. They all require you to login so it's not warez!

Just saves you the trouble of playing in a browser :D

Being bored, I made this for the Minecraft forums, I think I'll share it with you guys too, if you're interested.

Quote from: Kitkat
pb=petabyte

E=Earth volume

km=kilometer, or 1000 meters, or 1000 blocks.

200pb for 8E map

25pb for 1E map

2500tb for 1E map

500tb for 0.2E map

25tb for 0.01E map

1E=10,832,100,000,000km3

1E=10,832,100,000,000,000m3

25tb for .01E map, 108,321,000,000,000m3 contained within.

211564453125 F3

F= Five-twelve, I.E. 512 meters, or "blocks". This means that for a map only a hundredth of the volume of Earth, there will be a single 32 terabyte server, which costs roughly 16,000 dollars (How much money has Notch made by now on Minecraft?). Inside of that map, in each direction, the map will be 211,564,453,125 F, and 512x512x256 is currently the standard large map, with the other being 1025x1024x64.

If every player of the around 12,000 paying players log on at once, they will each have, if I'm not mistaken, 17630371 512-cube maps TO THEMSELVES.

Excuse my math if it's wrong, it's almost 10:00 at night here, and I'm tired :P

And sorry for the hard-to-follow-ness of it, but i just scribbled it down with about five pages up, including the scientific calculator and another calculator, too.

Okay. I'm having a problem with Minecraft.

As you probably do not remember, my computer was fixed recently, and it's hard drive was replaced. Afterwards, as I just discovered, Minecraft does not work. I do not mean it gives me an error, I mean it looks like this:
(http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/927/grabberraster0001.jpg) (http://img227.imageshack.us/i/grabberraster0001.jpg/)
The World of Minecraft Client does not work either. I also can no longer find Java on my computer. I am not sure if this is normal, though before the hard drive replacement, I could find Java by going into Finder and typing "Java" in the search bar. I can no longer do this, though I can find Java Preferences.

What do I do?

Try to install java anyways. If you already have it then an update will occur. If you don't have it then you will get it.

You can't install Java on a mac, it comes when you use software update.

But I've tried that, Java doesn't come up when I use software update.

1E=10,832,100,000,000km3

1E=10,832,100,000,000,000m3
1 cubic kilometer isn't 1000 cubic meter, like you used. It's actually 1000*1000*1000 m3, or 1 billion cubic meter.

I think Notch said a couple of times that macs don't really work with Minecraft. He bought a new macbook recently, so support for macs should show up pretty soon.

So I was messing around with airlocks, and came up with this map (http://www.mediafire.com/?2tuzyyonmmj). There's two airlock-based traps, I recommend the stone-covered one first, the sand one usually kills.

Has anybody else been playing with airlocks? For those who don't know, they're based on the fact that torches can support sand/gravel, and water destroys torches. This allows somebody to place torches supporting stacks of sand, and if the water floods the tunnel, the sand blocks off the flow. They're really interesting, some people have even built things like logic gates with them.

As my delicious Twitter says, I will be playing Minecraft on my stream starting at noon CST tomorrow, 6 PM GMT.

I like this website a lot better because of it's more functional and less demanding streaming software, unfortunately the ads would be a bit annoying.

However, I think Adblock blocks them. Handy.

PS- Hopefully Notch will check it out. That would be cool.

I had to manually install it. Yes, I know it was suggested, but I didn't know how to do it at the time. Yay!
