Do you play it? What are your thoughts? It seems pretty awesome to me.
Nah, I don't play it. I LIVE IN IT!
But seriously. I have paid for the game since it was in beta. I have some ON and OFF time with it occasionally.
I think it's one of the most ingenious games ever built.
It's great. I started a couple of years ago when I lived in Korea, and I had a Korean girlfriend... so now when the classic minecraft songs start to play in the game, i think back to that time.... nostalgia!
Georacer, do you have any awesome creations?
I mostly build home bases, safe and well equipped, linked with transportation networks. I 'm organized like that.
I also like to clear caves.
I love the game, even done some mild modding for it!
my friends here at purdue set up a server and we play it quite frequently, its a lot more fun with other people!
It is, you have someone to show your stuff. Unless they bring along their pickaxes.
yea, we set firm rules at the beginning
no griefing whatsoever
important rule when you build a house out of glass
It's not only that. You spend two days building your artful and architecturally correct house and then your neighbour raises a monstrosity of a shed, 100ft tall. It just ruins the view.
Hey, Creative or Survival?
survival, it's no fun if you don't have to work for the things you build
I stopped stacking cobblestone after my first dual chest. I filled another single chest with stone ladders. Now I 'm baking it into stone.
I 've built a lava pit for a dumpster, though. I 'll need it soon.
What's the purpose of this game?
I've seen a friend playing it for hours and hours. I don't get it. Looks awfully boring to me.
What's the purpose of recreation?
Some people find different things relaxing or worthwhile. I don't find minecraft that interesting, but I still play computer games. I'm quite into Call of Duty at the moment, but other games are good too.
Other times I go fishing. I don't need to fish to live, I do it for fun.
And then I play my bagpipes. I don't need to annoy my neighbours, I do it for fun.
Minecraft is like painting a painting, but in four dimensions. It's the most creative and imaginative game there has ever existed.
You are placed into a world and you are able to terraform it into your creation, create buildings, even functioning circuits!
I've seen people build fully functioning processors!
I feel the same about this as I do with World of Warcraft. It's a good thing I never played it, because if I did, I would spend my life on it...
We can't have all the same interests.. true.
My wife thinks my electronic stuff is boring.
Have you considered CAD as another alternative?
cad isnt the same
you can't walk through it or look up at it or "live" in it
I can see it now; MineCAD.
that sounds fun...
world loads as a blank pcb, you run around digging vias and laying traces and building components
then at the end it generates some real board files or simulates it....
that sounds like quite a bit of fun!
