    Anyone here play minecraft? I know Acepilot made a thread a while back but i dont think people really understood what they were missing out on. The game is currently in alpha but is very entertaining. You can try the free version on the website, but its missing all the important features that makes the game more fun.


    So what is minecraft? Well, you mine, farm, collect resources/materials/food, build stuff, fight stuff, forge tools and weapons, and explore an INFINITE (yes, i said infinite) world of landscapes, oceans, and caves. I gave in to the pressure and bought it, and ive spent the last 3 days just digging, building, and smelting shit. The Infdef mode is ridiculously addictive. Shit will be crazy when its available in multiplayer.

    Heres a video of my secret underground lava mansion of DOOM:

    Mi amigo is really into this game and he showed me some of it and it seems really cool. I'll have to really try it some time.

    I haven't even played it and I'm already tired of it.

    Minecraft general
    Monster Hunter general
    Pokemon general
    Oblivion general
    Steam giftan

    Seen some pretty impressive things done in it so I have to admit it has peaked my interest a couple of times. Might check it out when/if theres some RCs out.

    Looks dull and mostly uninteresting except for people who enjoyed their LEGOs far too much.

    I've been playing the free single player creation game to give it a test. I'm so hooked on it, but I have to tell myself to quit, because i'm not allowed to save my game. I'll probably end up buying it next paycheck.

    Same as Hokey, I'm just worried about getting another massive timesink.

    Have a hard time enough getting through my backlog as it is.

    I hope that if I do get it, that they plan to add seasons etc in the future so that I can watch time come and go, watch the oceans be turned into ice and stuff, and build massive ice fortresses that melt in the summer.

    made an impulse buy on this. looks like i could spend so much time on it.

    edit: hmm not working atm...go to load it up and just get a black screen.

    edit 2: what's the most fun mode to play in? i would play infdev but I'm not completely sure what to do, is the point just to build a base without dying to monsters?

    Just tried it.
    It is boring, all you do is build shit and get stuck in bottomless pits in zombie mode.

    Maybe when(if) they let the public try the other game modes I'll give it another try.

    HOLY SHIT. I honestly was planning to make a thread about this. I've been playing this game for a whole year and even got premium but I wondered how to introduce it to halflife2.net. Thank you Ravioli.

    You know, if we can get enough people from this site to play multiplayer, we could make our own server.

    First thing I did was build a small house. It was awesome. Complete with a basement and second upstairs floor.


    Then I dug a tunne into the basement and my house flooded with water. :(

    Hokey, have you tried building a roller coaster? To make minecarts you need 5 iron ingots in a u shape and to make tracks you need 6 ingots and one stick in an H shape. I've made a whole set of stations going around my island, with different stops for areas of importance.

    ALSO: a link to the creator of Minecraft's blog:

    No, I don't have the full version, so for the time being, i've just been building small things in the free version (I don't think it'll let your build tracks and stuff). I'm going to wait until I purchase the full version before I dedicate my time to doing something big. No save feature is such a tease.

    Yeah, the site is down for a few hours. Notch (the creator) is fixing it.

    EDIT: The ironic thing is that he was working on a standalone client for the game when this happened later. If he'd been done by now, nobody would've been worrying about the site being down

    Notch is apparently Swedish and comes from the same city as me.

    That alone makes this game that much more awesome.

    Sadly heading out to my summer house in a few days with no comp or internets, will probably buy the game after I return though.

    I reallllly hope he releases offline client before the 8th, cuz il be without internet for a whole month when i travel around. Would be awesome to play on a laptop while chillin on the beach. Hot girl walks by "ooo hes playing minecraft, thats so hot i want to suck his dick" and il be all like "yeah bitch"

    Probably wont go like that, but im quite optimistic.

    I just bought it since it was cheap. I like anything with crafting like Wurm or A Tale in the Desert.

    I love the amount of space you get to work with. Above ground, underground, etc. So awesome.

    This is so cool, playing infdev atm. managed to make myself a wee base inside a natural cave which i shaped into something quite cosy :)

    put some torches up, put a door on the front so nasties can't get in. I might have to start digging down now.

    It's epic when you're digging underground and you break into a huge cavern.

    I would totally buy this if the price was just a bit lower. The concept looks really cool, but being new to these sorts of games its hard to tell how long I would play it for.

    Actually, Notch was one of the founders of Wurm Online.

    Are there limits on how deep you can dig and how high you can build? And if so what are they?

    If you keep digging down, you'll eventually hit lava (sometimes the lava is higher that the bottom so you can go even further down), but it's pretty deep. I'd say a couple hundred feet. Same going up. This is just from the free single player creation mode. I don't know if the same applies to the full version.

    Yeah it does. If you dig really deep you will either hit lava, or bedrock.

    Fair enough, what's the upper vertical limit? in terms of blocks? If anyone knows..

    Just trying to get a sense of how high skyscrapers I could handbuild.

    I haven't really experimented with that myself, been up some pretty high mountains above the clouds though.
