Minecraft

I just bought the game in Alpha(I know, I'm a procrastinator) does anyone else play? If so, what server do you use?

If you don't know what Minecraft is, its a game where you build stuff...and run away from zombies and skeletons and ..... Its hard to describe, its awesome, but no description can give it justice. If you really want to know about it, watch SeaNanners Welcome to Minecraft series.

Notch already said their won't be any major updates today, just the name change really.

I got it during Alpha. I'm having tons of fun with it. The internet here is terrible, so I can't do much for online anymore.
I love building homes in it, particularly castles. My problem is I'm not very creative with a good design I will like, so I look at floor plans for other castles and mimic them.
I also use this mod called MCEdit. I think it's the best construction tool out there, with loads of amazing features that really help you build whatever you want. Not to mention it has a schematic tool, which is great for importing or exporting building in Minecraft. I can take something in World 1, make a schematic in about 20 seconds, and place it wherever I want in World 2. I may use it to help me fine tune my castle I'm working on, as well as speed up some building like the outer wall.

Also, for those of you showing off what you've made or found, could you please just link the images or use spoiler tags? Some of us don't want to wait a long time for the thread to load

Agreed, we don't need to see your whole desktop. Though I do find it mildly surprising to see a game being played on a Mac.

My coworker is hardcore into Minecraft. I love the concept but I can tell that the moment i start playing that game I will likely never leave the house.

That's somewhat likely, you can never beat the game, it has infinite possibilities.

You really won't run into a problem with graphics. The problem will be with memory, how much RAM do you have, what kind?

Another good test would be to try the free Classic mode, if you can't run that, then you can't run Beta. First try single player, then multiplayer.

I've been playing classic, and I'm in love. How much does beta cost in U.S. dollars? The site only showed euros.

I think it's around $20. I got mine for a fraction since I bought it before Beta, and I still get all future updates for free

I like the Netherworld, It would be really fun to make a home there, and create a whole network of portals.

Portals are really messed up though, I still don't understand why going back through one portal creates a new one, instead of using the same one I left in. using nether blocks in the real world is cool though.

I was telling Pry this earlier in the chatroom (that people need to use more often )

I FINALLY found my first dungeon last night. I've played for the past couple weeks pretty much non-stop, and haven't found JACK, and finally got one. In my excitement, I didn't think to store all my diamond tools (that took me forever to mine, ), and I jumped right in, and immediately died.

Took me at least 20 minutes to re-find the cave I was in, and of course all my stuff was gone. But I flooded the dungeon with sunlight when I returned. Pretty satisfying to burn all those zombies at once

I did ragequit sometime after dying the first time, and I created a new world that was all snow and frozen water, so now I'm building a house on the ice.

Do you mean just players from SS.org? If so we'd need to have a server, I might be able to run one when I put together these two broken computers I have, but I don't see that happening very soon.

If it matters, I use the servers mc2.joe.to and mc4.joe.to

Having an SS.org server would be cool.

I just bought a copy. Its cool. I died the first time, got exploded by a creeper, thrown off a cliff into another creeper. Ftl.
