We were aiming at releasing 1.5 this week, but no. There's been significant feature creep (we've got powered rails now, and lightning hitting a pig will turn it into a zombie pigman), so we don't have time to get it out this week.
But next week!
In the meanwhile, check out this video:
Uploading - How should it be improved?
Hiya everyone. I was just about to make the rule change (make the rules for uploading a feature, and make the text on the front page a link), but then I thought you, the community, should have a say on what goes into it, gets improved, or is removed.
I am not the most, well, competent person in phrasing things out and putting out guidelines for what is and isn't allowed, so, I'd really appreciate it if I could have your help.
Here is what we have right now:
MCPage wrote: Please note, due to legal reasons, you cannot host or link hacks on this page, and you cannot upload different versions of the client.
Due to a huge inflow of starter worlds and media, all images uploaded as downloads, and all starter worlds will be deleted. This does not affect texture packs or story-driven challenge worlds.
Also, this page is not a support/idea sharing site. for such a site, please visit Getsatisfaction. for help, please go to the Minecraft forum. For game-related information, please visit the Minecraft Wiki.
Any questions that can be found out easily shall be deleted. Any suggestions will be instantly deleted.
In the comments, as well as the usual news banter, please add any rule you think should be added, or comment on other's suggestions. to make it stand out, please format it like "--> There should be less spam <--". then it will be easy enough for you all and myself to filter what's a news comment, and what's a rule suggestion.
Please note, I'm not disabling uploads due to texture packs and mods, as well as downloads like Invedit and the like. I also cannot stop the public uploading specific types of downloads (singleplayer map, texture etc. basically, all of the options you have in the drop-down menu (ModDB, if you're there, this would be an ideal solution!)).
Also, we can't change any layout stuff, and Notch is unlikely to EVER use his account again, let alone to say anything or reply to PMs. so, really, the only way it can be managed is via me sorting through every download, and a set of things to put in place to lessen the load of spam, intentional or not.
If you are suggesting a rule, can you please try to make it measurable as well! thanks in advance everyone!
Zombie pigmen from lighting strikes? Wow, creepy...
I'd like to see in the future what it does to things such as zombies and...creepers, if it is to be implemented.
It makes you wonder what kind of pig meat your really eating... xP
Lightning???? There is lightning in Minecraft???
There is now. ^_^
yeah, only thing missing thou is some sound for the lightning/thunder
no lightning without thunder!
Nooooo! Never stand under a tree during a lightning storm!
would be awesome if Zombies transform into humans if zapped, and Wolfs into Werewolfs:D
good luck anyways
meh, next week will be spent playing portal 2 for me.
Same here. :))
Sounds awesome, the news and the new page policy.
they have to make ability to pet animals
and gather some other resources from them which you cant / can get by killing them
I know everyone's like "What if lighting struck ____", but imagine if there was a chance of lighting causing spider jockeys to shoot flaming electric arrows that stun and set you on fire XD
Im hoping for some Improvements on the Weather.
Like Zones for it... Tropical = It raines m ore often then in the Desert.
And possebilitys which we can make us from.
Like dig a Hole like 10x10x10 and then make a 2x2x2 long way away from it.
So the you kinda kan Create a Sea or something like that out of it.
If notch would Include Elektrycity to Minecraft there would be SOO MANY more ideas i have for it ... but i leave it like it is now.
Well, weather is nice, but I hope they fix some stuff too...
I hope there wont be too much rain / snow...
Just hope that lighting doesn't burns wood.. or else, i'm gonna have warm nights.
Powered rails, zombie pigmen, and better weather effects?
Heck Yesh.... :D
GAAAAAAAAAAA! MINECRAFT!!! U MAKE ME HAPPY!!!!!!
