With all the vidya game threads on here, there's no Minecraft one? Alright, I'll take that upon myself. Discuss aspects of the game, ask questions, share servers or mods, etc. I'll kick it off:

I started up a server for me and my friends with Hamachi a little while ago, using the server setup file off the Minecraft official website. It works perfectly well, but I always have to run some Javascript thing to run the server, which is a problem when I'm not playing but my friends want to. Is there any way to make it auto-run in the background or something like that? Help would be much appreciated.

    I like screwing around in MC, just doing random things for fun. I don't do serious projects.

    I seriously don't understand how people have time to build these enormous things like on r/minecraft. seriously, it must take days and days.

    They're probably Japanese, that's the only thing I can think of. I've watched people play it, but never got into it myself. I can still marvel at what people pull off though.

    Speaking of enormous builds, I'm building an entire Zelda-style adventure map. Right now I want to get the main villain's massive obsidian castle done before I build anything further. And then I have to cover a rather large field with snow so I can build something that resembles this for the "snow world". Fun fun fun.

    Also, I completely ruined the final boss of the map by accidentally destroying an End Portal I found. :(

    And what does everyone think of 1.2?

    If you've never really played it, it's really worth it. Took me a while to get into it, but I'm really diggin' it thus far.

    Awesome, man. I've been wanting to play an AdventureCraft-type game for a long time now, heard good things from my friends abou it all.

    For some silly ass reason, Minecraft is incredibly choppy on my laptop which is way more powerful than my desktop which can run it fine.

    So I'm waiting for the XBLA version which apparently only has days left.

    Yeah adventure maps are fun. I just played one recently called Goddess of Decay that was pretty good. It was really hard to beat though.

    But yeah, my map's got 9 dungeons, 9 villages, "boss rooms" (complete with redstone-created "spawners"), sidequests, and, yeah. It's pretty cool so far. It's far from done since all my Minecraft saves were accidentally wiped from my HD, including the original build of the map, but it's coming along well. I actually like this version better than the last. Cool part is that there's a prequel and 3 sequels planned, so that'll be cool.

    That's awesome, man. When you finish, hook me up with the server, I'd love to play it.

    Nah, it's just a downloaded map type thing. :) I have no money to run a server.

    Come to think of it though, a MMORPG style Minecraft server with dungeons and quests and stuff would be really, really cool.

    I know that I'll get sucked into it that's the problem. I have this dream of making Dick Fortress of Doom. I'll have my floating phallic palace with lava below to ward off the monsters. Then make it so lava flows out the top... Not short on creativity, just time.

    However since I've got young kids to worry about now, I'll have to live that dream another time when I'm not busy as heck.

    They're already kinda slowly making MC into an RPG with experience, enchanting, etc. Maybe eventually a real MMO will happen!

    Referring to a vagina as a "pit of death" isn't helping your cause :p

    Oh, Minecraft Workbench server, when will you update to 1.2 so I can visit you again? I really need to finish my house, and the fact that you still haven't updated to 1.2 even 20 days after it's release bothers me.

    Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition to be released on May 9, 2012 for only 1600 microsoft points.

    Thank you ArcadeNext promotion for releasing this game in 1.5 months, and the last on the schedule for this bogus promotion.

    kinda noticed there are quite a few players of this game on here (both on xbox and PC) so might as well make a thread for it :D

    post your cool screenshots/vids in here, Share great map seeds. Invite people to your games or share other cool stuffs! Tell people about crazy ideas you're still going to and stuff! i'll try to put some of the better seeds in this first post for easy access!

    also list your GT or whatever to find other players if you're looking for some!

    List of good seeds (xbox):

    459722261485094655 - You start near 2 monster spawners who are hidden just below the water, great for farming monster materials if you don't destroy them (see vid for details) Also not in the vid, but there is another Spider spawner about 2 minutes west from that location sticking just outside a mountain!


    for upcoming updates on xbox, see:

    Yay Jibs!!

    Anyway, my current project as of right now (on both platforms) is to build an island from scratch, filled with traps and defense mechanisms and such. It'll also have a central control room where all of the lights, traps, mechanisms and doors can be controlled from one place.

    on xbox, not that i know of. I might just make a new profile once i have a new xbox, cloud save it with 1 world and then anyone can join it or if it's not online someone else can download it and host

    I play on both.

    I really want to start a similar project to this.

    I DO have a server for anyone on my xbox version, so there is THAT.
