Just saying, somebody should run a Minecraft server for Tv Tropes. See what you crazy people get up to.

Ok, allow me to be the first to ask:

What the hell is Minecraft?

I like Minecraft.

Advice: If you have the "indev" version, make a Huge, Deep, Floating map. Then be awed.

Anyone who assigns themselves loads of character tropes is someone to be worried about.

I only know how to destroy an entire level into an ocean.

I've been screwing around in Minecraft as of late. It's fun, although I'd like to actually play it with someone else one of these days.

The new infdev terrain generator is pretty cool.

I'm hoping Notch starts working on multiplayer indev soon, though.

Interesting. As soon as I can download again, I'll check it out...

Mar 29th 2010 at 5:17:23 PM

It's a Java game at the moment. No download required until Notch finishes it. cool

Just pre-purchased it. Now things are getting interesting. :3

I can't get it to work. It keeps spitting out the following error message: org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Pixel format not accelerated

Ok, after updating my graphics card (thank you, Miijhal), I appear to have entombed myself in lava. Send help. tongue

Set up a server. Curious if it actually works.

I emailed you the link, EI.

Failed to connect

You failed to connect to the server. It's probably down!

Edit: Bah. Looks like I'm going to have to install quite a bit more than I feel comfortable doing to set up a server...

Yeah...just got killed by zombie do I use stuff?

Left click is attack, right click is use, tab is fire arrow, provided you're not playing the indev version.

Mar 30th 2010 at 5:16:08 AM I was wondering about that...and I can't seem to connect to the server for multiplaer, though that's likely a problem on my times. Flooded myself in with lava...I had a barrel of laughs over the sight of standing on exactly one block, the only one not covered in lava...

I'm currently making a tower surrounded by a pit that reaches the very bottom of the map.

Do not attempt this if you don't have a lot of time on your hands. Four hours and I only finished two 1 block wide sides and half finished another. Dying a lot didn't help.

And this weekend I think I'll look further into making a server. I want to know what exactly some of the programs I need do.

Are you playing in Survival, or Creative mode?

Mar 30th 2010 at 9:18:21 AM

Indev, which is essentially a more complex version of survival. Item crafting, farming, etc. I'll take a screenshot when I'm done. :3

Why can't there be more than ten explosive packs from the start? Why? Why? Whyyyyy?

Better than indev. You get none. You have to make them from parts dropped by monsters.

Also, finished the first part of all four walls. Now for the fun part: Finishing the second part of the wall when even a single hit will send me flying into my own lava pit.

How well does it match the trope?
