prolly not the greatest representation of the game, but it's about building things, and ive not yet played it (hoping it hits Steam by the time i get my rig up & running!). Anyone given this a try yet?

That's a justifiable fear heh. Check out some of the shit on Youtube. These guys go way down the other end of spectrum, spending weeks or even months making 1:1 replicas of enormous things.


Like this (admittedly this is pretty badass):

Minecraft Beta 1.3


* Implemented a new lighting engine with the help of MrMessiahs (can be turned off)

* Changed the options around, added a new “Graphics options” button

* Added beds. If all players in a map sleeps in a bed during night, the game immediately skips until morning

* Added three new half-size blocks

* Added Delay/Repeater redstone dust blocks

* Added whitelisting to the server. To use, enter “whitelist <cmd>” where cmd is “on”, “off”, “add <player>”, “remove <player>”, “list” or “reload”

* New save file format, old maps need to be converted (that might take a while..)

* It’s now possible to have more than five save slots, and to rename saves

* Scrollbars in both the texture pack list, and in the map selection screen

* Replaced the Mojang splash image to reflect the new logo colors

* .. and a bunch of bug fixes and tweaks!


This game just keeps on getting more awesome.


Also new in 1.3 - BEDS!!




Beds are used by right-clicking on the part with a pillow during night time. Attempting to use it during the day will result in a "You can only sleep at night." message, which also appears when attempting to use beds in the Nether. When used, the player is positioned in the bed and their view slowly fades to gray. After this transition, the player wakes up at dawn.


To ensure that you are not awakened unnecessarily during the night, the bed must not be placed along a 1 block thick wall, unless the area on the other side of the wall is also safe. If a hostile mob can get within 2 blocks of the bed, even if the blocks are separated by a wall, you will be awakened with the hostile mob standing next to you. There appears to be a slight delay before the mob attacks you, giving you time to get the first blow.


In SMP, to skip the night, all players on the server must be in bed at the same time.


Sleeping, while skipping night time, does not accelerate other events such as the decay of dropped items, Crop and Sugar Cane growth or smelting.


Finally a way to skip night time.

When this game is actually finished, and inevitably available on Steam, I'm gonna be all over it.


Until then I'm just going to enjoy the Alpha/Beta vicariously through others. The fact that so many are even willing to pay for a game that's still in the middle of development speaks volumes.

i too had this stance once, but notch flew out to meet valve and nothing really came from it, so i just play it by launching it from steam. i think it's still cheaper than it will be in alpha mode.


i really dont know what more id wait on them adding. i gotta check back in now that there's dogs, though.
