So, I finally bought Minecraft after riding off of the generosity of my friends. To me it stills feels like Minecraft, which is a game that I've played for hours but never quite liked. Hopefully all of these weekly 1.9 pre-releases will change my mind.

@V8_Ninja You ought to try out some mods if you haven't already.

In particular, a set of mods called "The Technic Pack" adds automated machinery, oil, firearms and nuclear reactors.

All the while, Notch and his team are adding junk potions, wolves, useless maps and sheep shears. They totally change the game, these mods.

It's been just the thing to get me back into Minecraft, because between the ugly terrain generation (giant bayous bordering tiny deserts, bordering plains AND THOSE BLOODY ENDERMEN, I've begun to lose interest in it.

That and the uninspiring new features introduced.

I can't say I'm too into the potions myself. The Technic Pack looks amazing, but it seems a lot of the bigger stuff is really only attainable on a server with a few other people.
I do like the idea of enchantments though. The Enderman are also supposed to be rare, but they haven't been adjusted yet to ensure they are properly tested. Or that's how it was originally supposed to be.

I heard Notch was going to banish the Endermen to the Ender Realm.

And then he go and releases a video of a dragon ploughing through terrain and generally being bigger trolls than any mob combined.

But then the title of the video is "Why Ender Dragons won't spawn in the main world".

And if you are worried about the technic pack (if i'm understanding you correctly, you feel that it'd be too much hard work to gather the materials to make a lot of the machinery), just you try it with the "Equivalent Exchange" mod.

Basically, while Technic Pack offers machinery, and Equiv Exchange offers alchemy (and on their own, they're pretty blah) together, they're just perfect.

For example, you can build a mine with technic pack that quarries out a 12x12x100 shaft, feeding your common stone into a chest. That chest of 1000s of units of stone is alchemised (using a special item that operates within your chest) into iron, then gold, then diamond. Redstone into glowstone, etc. Diamonds become new items (read the FAQ, i'm not to knowledgeable about it all myself) that allow you to create end game armours.

You could potentially enjoy the set up on your own, but as is often the case with Minecraft, it's much more fun with like minded individuals anyway.

When I get a better Internet service (once, towards the end of this year, and again, sometime in the next two years - that is if I haven't moved to The City or lost interest in Minecraft) I'll look forward to playing Minecraft with mods such as these - assuming the developers don't introduce something as intersting as this during that time.

I'm waiting for Mojang to add something as innovative as any number of mods available.

If anyone was thinking of a new texture pack, I highly recommend Sphax PureBDCraft. I love the style and look of it. Plus the high res textures are really nice. http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/376784-16x-32x-64x-128x-2...
Perhaps I will take a few screens of my very strange house currently in the works.

I'm using the Animal Crossing texture pack. Looks real good and high res on my computer :)

Going to have to try the many mods available out there. I really hope they push out an update that brings more animals such as turtles and the like. I know there's a mod for it, but it just isn't the same as being official and I'd be the only one who'd be able to see them if I were to play online- unless others have that same mod.

I made a pretty sweet river front property one time, two rooms, nice deck, not dock for my raft, a nice three furnace outside workshop and a tunnel leading to a mining operation. Then I saw a mountain in the distance and thought it would be cool to have a castle there. So I built a castle there, including a moat with a water fall plunging into the same river my cabin is on. Then I saw another mountain and thought it would be cool to build a giant sword statue pointing to the heavens. So I built that and lit it up with many torches, zombies, skeletons, spiders and creepers be damned... Then I saw a desert... Decided I'd like to have a limestone fort. I built that around a lava pit, very cool. Then I gave up. This game should be classified as a narcotic. One day I will pick it up again. I already have an epic farm design crafted in my mind.

Hi, so I just bought Minecraft and I'm trying to figure out how to download mods (specifically Too Many Items and Mo' Animals).
I have a Mac OS X. I tried it once using a video but it didn't work and a bunch of stuff got messed up. (it's fixed now though.)
Can someone help me?

3DS Friend Code: 0989-1789-0282 Just tell me if you wanna swap codes. (Especially if you plan on getting AC: NL!)
NNID: Lady_Ghirahim You need to add me through your friend list, though.

@Nintengirl Happy to hear you have A Mac. I wish I could afford one.
Here is something I've found.

"Section 1: Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) users read this first, Mac OS 10.6 users skip to section 2
NOTE: I am pretty sure that if you are on a PPC Mac this will not work, because PPC Macs cannot install Java 1.6 only Java 1.5.0_26

First make sure that you have Java 6 installed, you can see your java versions in the “Java Preferences” app found in the Utilities folder.
If you don’t have it installed, run software update to bring to up to speed in the latest updates.
While you have the ”Java Preferences” app open make sure that Java 6 is at the top in the two lists. If not, drag it to the top.

Find your Minecraft application (Also called the Minecraft Launcher). Right click it and choose show package contents.
Navigate into the contents folder and open the Info.plist with TextEdit.
Find these lines and change the 1.5+ to 1.6+, save it and close TextEdit.
JVMVersion
1.5+

After doing that, go to the Finder and press command+shift+g and past in this path /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Resources/MacOS

Once you’re in the folder you should see a file named “JavaApplicationStub”, copy that to the Mac OS folder in the Minecraft app ( Minecraft.app>”Right click and Show Package Contents”>Contents>MacOS )

Yay! Your mods should now be able to work! Next step is to install them!

Section 2 is a rewritten version of a post in the MC Forums.
via Mac 10.5 and modding – Minecraft Forums.

Section 2: Installing the mods into the minecraft.jar file.

Find the minecraft.jar file. It is located at /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/
Open the minecraft.jar using the Archive Utility (Right click>Open With>Archive Utility).
A folder should now appear in the bin folder called “minecraft”, it will have lots of .class files in it.
Drop the .class files that came with the mod into this folder, then find and delete the META_INF folder.
Select all the files in the “minecraft” folder, right click and choose “Compress XXX items”. (If you select the “minecraft” folder instead of it’s contents when compressing, minecraft will not work!)
It will make a .zip file called “Archive.zip”, move it into the bin folder. Rename the mincraft.jar file to mincraft.old.jar, and rename the “Archive.zip” to minecraft.jar. Finder will ask you if you really want to change the extension to .jar, choose change.
Now your mods should be installed and working, and you can delete the “minecraft” folder that contains the .class files since it isn’t needed anymore.
Some mods also require that you put their support files in the /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/mods folder, check your downloaded mod for a “mods” folder and move it’s contents to the /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/mods folder.

Section 3: Alternate method of installing mods

Find the minecraft.jar file. It is located at /Users/####/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/
Open the minecraft.jar using the Archive Utility (Right click>Open With>Archive Utility).
A folder should now appear in the bin folder called “minecraft”, it will have lots of .class files in it.
Drop the .class files that came with the mod into this folder, then find and delete the META_INF folder.
Now instead of compressing the folders contents as is done above, simply rename the “minecraft” folder with the .class files to minecraft.jar
Downside to this method is that minecraft balks when a trying to install a update, it is looking for a real .jar file and only finds a folder. Strangely the game itself works fine, just updating doesn’t.
So for updates, you just need to deleted the whole bin folder and start up the launcher which will then download the updated files when using this method.

Section 4: Finish

Your mods should now be installed and working, if not it is very likely that you made an error when re-compressing the mincraft folder contents.
If the mods don’t work or Minecraft doesn’t even get to the game menu, delete the minecraft.jar file, rename the minecraft.old.jar to minecraft.jar and try again. First time I did this, it took me several tries before I got it right.

Another Way of Doing It.

Commenter Peter points out that you can also do this through the command line.

There is a third method for opening the minecraft.jar file and in my opinion it is the easiest by far.

Open terminal and copy/past this code section,
cd ~
mkdir mctmp
cd mctmp
jar xf ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar

now in users there is a folder called MCTMP (this is the minecraft.jar file) pass (move) your .class files from the downloaded mod into that folder, then copy/paste this code section into terminal:
NOTE: do NOT delete the the META_INF folder. the code will do it for you.

rm META-INF/MOJANG_C.*
jar uf ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./
cd ..
rm -rf mctmp

Now boot up minecraft and have fun playing!"
