Is there, like, a free survival version? I'd like to try it... *puts on shades* before I buy it. YEEEEEAAAAHHHH

 

Srsly, though. Wikipedia mentioned that classic had two modes- Creative and Survival- but clicking Classic (Singleplayer) on the site brings up Creative mode (or what I'm assuming is Creative mode), with no option for a Survival mode. HALP PLZ LOL

sorry but you have to pay to get survival mode but on the brite side its on sale for a one time payment of 13.50$ us dollers (it will rise in price as the game goes into beta and its final form)

Hmm... From watching the video, 13.50 is defo worth it. I've got the cash... Now if I can just persuade my mom to buy it (since she's the one with the Paypal account and all) before the price goes up.

Just so I don't feel like a noob and loser when I do get it, how do the controls differ between Survival and Creative modes?

Awesome! biggrin.gif But do you wanna see some stuff that'll really blow your mind?

 

This is an EPIC trailer like thing that shows more stuff about the game:

 

A super geek is trying to build a super computer...or some sort of computer anyway:

 

And another geek is building THIS:

 

I won't spoil this one, but it's got a surprise twist:

Ohgodyes.

 

Also you are now aware notch is adding dragons, hedgehogs, saddles for dragons, and terrifying monsters exclusively meant to psycologically mess with you. Ever read weeping angel? EXACTLY like that, and more.

I play a bit, but I haven't exactly gotten far. I have more fun making roller coasters, honestly. They're so fun to make! I also plan to make some kind of redstone-powered boolean logic operator. Like AND, OR, XOR, stuff like that. I saw one guy who's working on a 16 bit computer run entirely in MineCraft!

 

I also saw one guy who's making a 1 to 1 scale model of the enterprise-d.

I've played since about May this year. I can't seem to like my save files to ever keep them, though.

 

World five, planning to dig this to the bottom of the earth.

everyone in my group of friends has a rival

1 has problems with creepers

another hates spiders

my boyfriend with skeletons (his wording was "I've played so many scary games like silent hill and resident evil and i jumped and screamed because of a block archer")

my foe is lava, i found some and it glitched me into it when i was like 2 blocks away and it wouldn't let me jump out, i lost my first and only diamonds i ever found .__.

 

 

worst file

i made a random file when i installed it on my main computer and i was on easy difficulty setting, first day i couldn't find any coal or wood so i had my little sand house which i huddled in and a skeleton hit me during the one second i jumped to look out the window, i head so many zombies around my house and on my roof

next morning i come out of my house 5 SPIDERS! decided they wanted to live on top of my hutch, i killed 2, died, killed one and then a creeper blew up half my house and me

i respawned and went back to collect my things, there was a cave uncovered and only one block to the surface, a creeper was inside and blew me up again

i quit and deleted that map and said screw you guys, 3 deaths in 2 minutes on easy was messed up

they literally spawned every monster on my house

 

luckily the next file i made was my first snow

how do you make houses? and how do you tell what is what? and what do you use different things for?

I personally reference Minecraft Wiki for what's what and any recipes.

 

Houses are usually made with various materials that you gather while mining or digging. You place materials by right-clicking.

lol.

 

my house is currently a tunnel.

So was mine for a while.

 

Just a tip for anyone dual-booting Windows and Linux - I swear, it -does- run faster on Linux! I did a few tests and I can keep the settings on Linux on max while on Windows, they have to be on minimum.
