1.9

Are we going to do the pre-release or wait until the official 1.9 comes out? I rather just wait it out at this point because 1) Cam is out of a computer at the moment and I really don't want to do anything new without him and 2) we only have to wait a few more weeks until 1.9 and the official game are released.

Re: 1.9

I know my opinion on this doesn't matter much because I'm not on the server atm but I'm gonna just wait. I'm not into playing things in their early, buggy state. Seems better to just wait the short time until the big release.

Re: 1.9

@Crispy: We can scout out a location without Cam. I know what we're looking for. Snow mountains, hopefully with a plains biome next to it or at least an NPC village.

I just ask for one side of a large mountain to make this:

Re: 1.9

Thanks, chris

Just saying that I've been told 1.9 pre release is buggy. I also remember 1.8 pre release being buggy and laggy. I know my opinion is kind of changed under the circumstances, but if my computer were working, I'd still vote against a pre release server. Up to you guys though.

Might be getting my hard drive sooner than I thought, but not jumping to conclusions. Hey, maybe I can play through my 3ds! :P Just kidding, not being serious.

Re: 1.9

@Cam- No prob! I'm all for waiting. I rather not have the buggy pre-release. I think we can manage until the official 1.9/full release.

Damn, looks nice. What is it Ten?

Re: 1.9

There's a new mob in 1.9, perhaps you guys have heard about it already:

I'm pretty sure it's not hostile.

Re: 1.9

Ok seriously now, the first world shown in this video is what I think we're looking for when it comes to the new 1.9 server.
I base this assumption on you guys' prior building sites in the old worlds we played.
Basically, I see you guys REALLY love your mountains, and this first world has got them in spades.
I hope we can find something similar for the 1.9 release.
Enjoy, all the same.


Edit:
On second thought, I think Duke Leto II looks way cooler.
You guys get the idea.

Re: 1.9

My buddy at school thinks he has a spare hard drive... Fingers crossed!

Also, there is things called Ender Dragons apparently. All I've heard is that they swoop at you if you look at them, and make anything they touch disappear, or die. This means that they could effectively wipe out houses, and make caves.

Whether this is true or not, idk. Something dizzy, and magic told me. Someone not on a 3ds can look it up lol.

Re: 1.9

Enderdragon - Minecraft Wiki



According to the wiki they will only spawn in The End zone(used to be called the sky zone or w.e) and only one will be active at a time. They can destroy any blocks, including bedrock, but they pass right through obsidian and whitestone.



Both pics are brightened to show the detail better.

Re: 1.9

That whole zone is gonna be creepy. It's gloomily dark with a bone white ground mixed with pillars of obsidian. The only mobs, so far, are endermen and the dragon. There's also no known way out unless you kill yourself or cheat. The idea is that you have to kill the dragon to get out.

Re: 1.9

Best I can do:

Warning: This challenge really is insane, attempt at your own peril...

Notch has forsaken you, you had placed your trust in his guidance and he has ignored it... He must have been bribed by the Mad King. The food you had once starved yourself to collect for the journey has spoiled and most of it is no longer edible.
After many weeks of travelling your followers have grown weary, they can no longer walk and stand no chance of making it beyond the rough mountains ahead even if you could feed them. There is no choice but to make camp and settle on these wretched lands not much better than the wastelands you have travelled from.
The tall grass found naturally yields no seeds suitable for farming and the climate is far too cold for melons to grow outdoors - You will need to find alternate solutions to this, however it is not impossible to grow crops.
Fortunately, you are just outside of the King's domain and his troops will be unable to pass the rough terrains that have trialed you in large numbers. But surely the King will bribe Notch to unleash vicious monsters upon you by night, be wary.

Your challenge is to create a city, progressing through the stages one by one, reaching the next stage once all of the requirements are met. During the challenge there are some guidelines that should be followed for the best playing experience. Some should be followed throughout the challenge (see immediately below) whereas others only apply to certain stages.

Guidelines (Insane)

- For safety reasons, you must be wearing a helmet of some kind before going underground to protect your head, any kind of helmet is acceptable but you may only go to a depth of y = 40 with a leather helmet
If you go beyond the depth allowed by your helmet, you must rise to a suitable depth immediately and not mine/collect any blocks on the way up.
- You must leave the mine if your helmet breaks and you do not have a spare to equip.
- Mine shafts must be at least 3x3 areas and have support beams at least every 10 blocks (wooden pillars or otherwise) (except in naturally generated caves, they already support themselves)
- Seeds can only be obtained from existing wheat or from tall grass which has spawned by using bonemeal on a grass block.
- You cannot make bread and bread will not count towards your food count. Hint: Fish supplement
- Melons must be grown indoors.
- You must use the corresponding tools to gather blocks (except for wood, because everybody knows you can punch trees to gather them), tools not needed for unnatural blocks/entities such as workbenches, stairs, fences etc.
- The building requirements will be in different districts or towns, the requirements must be built in (but are not limited to) the specified district.
Note:
The Farming District is marked by the Town Hall.
The Market District is marked by the liscensing office.
The Upper District is marked by the City Hall.
The Port is marked by the Harbor Master's Office.
The King/Queen's District is marked by the castle/Fort/Palace etc.

Also, they do not have to be districts. They can be towns or otherwise.

- If you find a bucket, you may use it regardless of the stage you are in.
- Use at least 'Hard' game difficulty
- Do not cheat at any point in this challenge
- Post your progress on this thread

Note: You do not need to follow the guidelines that I make, they are just there to make the experience of the challenge better. This is meant to be fun for you so if you don't like something, change it.

There is no restrictions as to how many people play the challenge simulataneously, but you will need to accomodate for every participant, as i will explain!

Re: 1.9

Sounds like fun! It seems like quite a long project though. Should we focus on it after the full release comes out or what?

Whatever we decide, I'm up for it.

Re: 1.9

Yeah, I was thinking post-official release.

I like how it's almost a step-by-step in building a giant kingdom.

It also functions as a check list.
"We just finished the licencing office, next we should build 2 community buildings and then 2 dwellings in the market district. After that we need to add stalls and shops in the marketplace."

I wasn't a big fan of the helmet rule but I can get into if people really wanted to stick to the guidelines.

Re: 1.9

I don't "get" the helmet rule either. I think it might be the idea that all the townspeople are wearing the same helmets helps unify the community maybe.
