Just a thread for discussing creations and Minecraft related things. In case you haven't heard of it, there's a free version of the game called Minecraft Classic on the website. Alpha, the paid version, isn't finished, but is much more fun in my opinion. There's going to be a large update on Halloween which will add teleportation, biomes and some other things. Anyone else play it?
Dah, this will work.

I tried it once, but it was very lag. I'll try it again some other time.

Turn the fog up by pressing F. Less lag.

Alright, I was just about to make a thread about this after seeing that N8 post on NL.Minecraft is amazing. Notch is a god. Go buy it now, regardless of other plans with money. Go.

I been hearing alot of talk aboth this Game.Dosen't look very good, it just blocks.But I'm guessing, its what you do with The Blocks, and what you can make of them.From what I seen here, just looks like your making 3D 8-Bit....

In the Alpha version, you have to actually mine for materials, I find it to be a lot more fun. Also, you have to fend for yourself, make a shelter to protect from baddies, etc.

Not a fan of paying to play an Alpha, personally.

Well, this Alpha version is really, really complete and has a lot of things to do. The bad things is that they doesn't give you any clue of what to do and is all trial and error or searching in the internet a "how to" guide. But when you understand it all, it's one of the most gratefull experiences ever when you see you made by you own a cave with a vault, a house with shelves or even a giant castle.
Also, think this is only am Alpha version. Imagine how the final release would be.
15. Posted: Sat 16th Oct 2010 10:50 BST
And I will consider buying the final release.
I find it amusing that, with all the controversy around patching and the "OMG they released game xxx unfinished," a whole legion of people, including some who deliver the aforementioned complaints, then go and buy an alpha.

I always forget that it is still in alpha (although, I think he is planning on switching to Beta soon after the super-mega-huge Halloween update). The game really does feel almost finished, so it isn't unlike most games that come out now-a-days. And it gets regular patches to add/fix features in the game, which is unlike most games now-a-days where nobody seems to care if there is a game breaking memory leak.

Guys give it a try It says you can get a refund within the first weekOh and I think it lags a lot when you first start because the game is still creating the game world. So maybe that's you're lagging Oh and this sums minecraft up pretty well

@Waltz.... knowing your gaming taste, this is right up your alley in gaming, especially with you liking Magic Carpet and that crazy style of gaming.
This game supposively has Kevin Levine amazed... that is impressive. I havent bought it yet, but plan to when I get some games knocked down. I going to check out the Free version though.

A useful titbit:
Even though you can choose to buy it now (Alpha) or on Beta, Notch (the creator) plans to eventually release it as open source once sales have died down (and a minimun time has passed). Read the final paragraph.
This is a top class bloke we're talking about here.
I bought this about 2 weeks ago. I was browsing these very forums and Ravage* mentioned (on this topic) minecraft.
I researched a bit on YouTube, I think, and immediately bought the game off the back of that. I didn't even check to see if it would work on my computer - which it didn't (initially). I'm thankful for this, because I was compelled to perform a quick fix (via driver update), and it worked.
As for the game itself, It's right up my alley - I love the idea of planning and building structures, and the threat of monster attacks adds quite a bit of challenge. Granted, for my first two weeks, I set it to the easiestt difficulty (no monsters and a health bar that refills), but for about two days, I've turned it up two levels to normal, and it's really much more satisfying when you build and survive against an everlasting horde (for as long as there is darkness).
I can't really think of much to criticise it on, but due to it's open-ended nature, it's easy to get bored once you've achieved what you've wanted to do. There are no cutscenes to view again and again, no bosses to beat (yet) and no story, and it could be seen as a massive waste of time in some people's eyes, but as long as you're inspired you'll feel compelled to carry on.
Actually...I can think of one thing to criticise - the music/sound. I feel the music is a bit jarring and thus, out of place and some of the sound effects for the enemies are a bit loud compared to the ambience like footsteps and streams.
*Thanks a lot, buddy! That's two obscure, awesome games you've inadvertantly introduced me to!

Haha, you're welcome man! There are some things that need to be worked out in the game, but it is amazing what you can do. I can't wait until we can move our spawn points for one things. I remember the first time I played, I dug out this hole in a mountain, put up a few torches and a work bench, then blocked off the entrance completely when an arrow flew in. I also remember one time when I got stuck at night and no weapon to defend myself, so I quickly dug out a spot, and blocked it off so that I couldn't move and no monsters could spawn (I had no torches). It was quite jarring really; being all alone, unable to move, in complete darkness. But after a couple days, I realized that my first home (hole) was not going to be big enough, and so moved to a much larger mountain where I eventually made a house. I am planning on building structures jutting out from the side of the mountain all the way up so that my mountain is like a giant tree house (but without the tree).
I know! My next project will be to make my house in a tree! just let a tree grow and become huge. Probably a couple trees, and dig out passages all around the tree. That would awesome. Also, don't forget to make extra supply of torches before the October update! Torches will become a finite light source, but all existing torches will be turned into lanterns (infinite light sources).
