Minecraft.

Has anyone else succumbed to the addictive block bashing of this game?

My 3 (adult) kids all play it so I have now been inducted into the noobs hall of bashers, luckily my eldest runs his own server so I can play online without being greifed etc as I can go a long distance from the spawn.

Me and my best man used to play it, built a huge house with a railway, automatic sliding glass doors, swimming pool secret basement rooms with a library/enchanting thing...

Then it updated and the climate moved so our formally temperate zone was icy and we could no longer grow crops...so got griefed by mine craft. We stopped playing then as had spent to long on it already!

Re: Minecraft.

I begrudgingly play it. I never finish anything I'm building, and I still am not really sure if I'm enjoying this game.

Re: Minecraft.

I play on my own - in creative.

I enjoy the building rather than the collecting stuff lol

Re: Minecraft.

I played with the other half before we moved, not set up her Mac since then so not played it. However, the gaming community I'm also a member of is/are in the process of setting up a server we're just trying to decide which mods (if any, i prefer vanilla) we want to use. I'm the opposite of SeanW though, while I enjoy building I don't feel like I've earned the right to build the thing if I haven't dug them up myself.

Yeah half the fun is getting the stuff together to do what you want to do. Eg the Xbox has an achievement for travelling 100 squares or whatever the map width is by mine cart, it took a month of play to get that much iron. Then there was the the glass doors..mine craft wiring is a joke!

Pretty sure Xbox achievements were only available in survival mode though.

Trick is to grief them as bad as you can before they do you.

Re: Minecraft.

No chance of that, one has routines to build everything and can dismantle my creations in seconds & the other owns the account I'm using lol

I do however have admin access to the router & the switch they are connected to lol

Now I'm off to play roller coaster creation then methinks it will be Thunderbird 4

Re: Minecraft.

I had a chunk generator and you could just import maps. My sister got very cross when I imported the Taj Mahal over her "castle".

I was boss at Hunger Games servers though!

Re: Minecraft.

If you play this look for "optifine".

It turns it from a blocky display to a game that can grace any PC, the FPS increases and the whole display is better, I can see through water now, leaves look like leaves etc.

Re: Minecraft.

Optifine was a beautiful mod. Although if you got a bit carried away with other mods I quickly found things crashing. everywhere.

There's a texture pack that makes everything really minimal - flat colours, little to no texture. It looks super effective.

I wanted to try this but installing mods gives me a headache and I quickly got nowhere. Help?

Edit: I've got MC 1.8.8, the corresponding Optifine version and MagicLauncher 1.3.1. See screenshot below, whenever I even try to log in or test it though I get an error.

Re: Minecraft.

Doing a bit of research, it looked like maybe I needed a ModLoader so I now have this:
