I just read notch's blog and he posted a link to the documentary about Minecraft.
It's a 20 minute proof of concept for the full length documentary they want to film and they need $150,000 in donations to do it.  It went live today, Notch only linked to it an hour ago, and it's already made $10,000 in donations.  I think they'll make the March 26th deadline. 

kickstarter link for donations
Full 20 minute video on Gametrailers.com

Some of us have had this lighting for a while via mods, but it's awesome that it's included in the game now!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

He's always been impressed with it, but didn't really want to add it because it wasn't his code.  With the new company he had to get used to letting other people code "his" game.  Once he got over that hump, I think he relaxed and decided it's good to allow code from the modding community to seep into the full game.  It's just less stuff he'll have to program in the end.

I think the download version is bugged for logging in.  It won't let me log in either, but the browser version works fine.  Download the latest version from the browser version, and then you can play the download version offline.

I like the look of the new lighting effect but in caves everything is a lot darker. I think I will stick with old lighting.
I need a new tag.

I like it, It seams to be more realistic and I don't think that it has any effects on mob spawning.


Also. Notch was not kidding when he said these releases could be highly unstable.

Odd, I can play just fine.

Edit: Holy bleeping bleep, I just died a heart attack! I was just running down into one of my mines and when i turned around a corner I saw something big and green right in front of me and I spazzed out. The next moment I see it jumping at me and I spazzed out again. Another moment later I realized it wasn't a creeper. It's actually a slime and it's sort of cute. It tries pushing me. I think I'll keep it.

Edit2: Daw, I just split it into four smaller ones. DEY ARE THE CUTEST!!!! ♥_♥

Edit3: I found three more slimes close by and split them into smaller ones. =D

There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

I haven't found any yet, either.  But I did find some squid the other day.  When can I start making calamari?
Probably not a Goat, either.

The small slimes are incredibly cute. They just keep following you and and bunp into you. It's so adorable! :D
