Minecraft 1.8 WOOOOO!

So yh, saw this on Notch’s twitter this morning “Ooh, looks like 1.8 has leaked, not that I’d ever admit that. 😉 Be careful when installing software you don’t trust though.” and “If you do use it, remember to report bugs, and to feel slightly bad. ;)” andddd “(I am fine with you using it. Make sure you get it from the leaked url we are hosting, though)”

So I got pretty excited and started to look for where the leaked url was posted. My first idea was to look on reddit and that proved quite succesful as one of the highest rated links was the link to the 4chan post with the minecraft.jar download on Minecraft.net’s servers. About 3 minutes later I had created a world and was preceding to zip around with the new flyingness in creative mode.

I’m just about to start a survival world and will be doing some let’s play posts (as promised) don’t know how long this will last for though and how frequent as I recently gained ownership of a small game called dead island and I am quite eager to start playing through that. I don’t know whether I will do a let’s play of that, but I might give it a go as the stream of content running to my youtube account is quite dry (and has been like that for a couple of months now.

Update (And piston door tutorial)

Hi guys, sorry that I haven’t been posting much in the last few days. Not had much time on my hands, been playing other games, playing my guitar (learning Sweden off the Minecraft soundtrack) and just general things happening in my life. So yh. I did post a new video on YouTube (a tutorial of the piston door I posted a few days earlier) but forgot to post it here, so I’ll do that now.

I shall try and get some more posts out soon, inbetween life, guitar and other things I’ve been doing lately. I’ve also been playing some Crysis 2 and I want to try and finish that off (I have a habit of leaving games I’m playing half finished (Half Life)) And I may also buy Cities XL 2011 later as it is on sale for £5.99 and it is a game I have been wanting to play for a while but couldn’t be bothered to pour £29.99 out of my pockets for a game that I probably won’t even play for that long.

But anyhow, I’ll be trying to get out some more posts in the next few days but don’t be surprised if I don’t, I’ve been feeling quite tired lately and there are things I would much rather be doing than forcing myself to play a game, take screenshots, think of things to write whilst I’m doing all of this and then compile this all into a post. It may not sound it but it is quite draining and sometimes I just don’t feel like it.

So I hope to be posting some more, but until then I’m signing off for some well-deserved rest 😀

New Video – Piston Door

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, because of the 1.7 update my mods are out of date and don’t want to continue my singleplayer world until I get baby animals because I will lose them otherwise. But here is a video as I’m not posting nothing. There will probably be another piston video tomorrow.

Finding Diamond

After finishing my aniamal padock last post I decided it would be a good idea to go and explore the cave that I found previously. After about 2 minutes of digging further down in my mineshaft I came about this rather large cavin, containing a lot of iron, coal and lava. But most importantly – diamond!

Big Cavern

Bring on the moment of truth, how many diamonds are there? Just the one? Or is it a vien of 3 or 4 of them? Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnn. Just the one, oh well. It’s better than nothing at least 😀

Diamond!

But nether the less I continue across the lava lake in hope of finding more diamonds. Soon I come to another opening on the other side and are greeted with some Lapis Lazupi, exactly 20 pieces to be exact.

Lots of Lava

Wow thats a lot of lava. I wish I dropped my diamond off in a chest or something, don’t wana lose it in here. Even though it looked promising there isn’t really anything special in here, just a few pieces of iron. Oh well. At least it’s somthing.

New Youtube Video – Auto Harvesting Farm

Just a short video showing off a new auto harvesting farm I made. Uses the piston mod.

(View on youtube for higher quality!)

Edit: Woowowo! 994 views yesterday! I checked in my stats and noticed most of the links to my blog were from reddit (proving posting links on there works) I was wondering, can we get the views today up to 1,200? Its worth a try 😀

Update on The Minecart Series

Just going to be more of a picture post this one, I’ve been working on that Minecart system I mentioned in a previous post. Pretty much finished I think. Just need to get around to making the videos to showcase it. I also found out about a little inde game (off Notch’s twitter) that is quite a lot like Minecraft. It looks quite a lot of fun and is meant to be played multilayer mostly, well that’s what I’m guessing from the gameplay trailers. More about that in a bit.

Minecraft - Cool House

Oh, and I built a pretty nice house! 😛 Continue reading
