:siren:[highlight]MINECRAFT IS NOW IN BETA![/highlight]:siren: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4861882/autismcraft/diamonds.png[/img] (Banner courtesy of [url=http://www.facepunch.com/members/133320-pedroion]Inacio--I mean pedroion[/url]) [b]Minecraft FP Group! Join it![/b] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/group.php?groupid=1650[/url] [b]And now a special message from Doomish![/b] So, it's been 50 threads. That's quite a bit. Half a century's worth of Minecraft I guess if you count each thread as a year. I've been with this game since the very beginning, when there were four blocks and no multiplayer support, as have a few others. Some of the original community still thrives, but new players arrive every day. This really is a great game and I assure you it's worth the money. It'll go beta on December 20, so be sure to get it before the price doubles! Without further ado, congrats, Minecraft megathread, may you live on for another 50 and then some! [b]Merry craftmas everyone![/b] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-JP3ES0ANM[/media] If you're new to Minecraft or somehow managed to run into this thread, here's a little explanation of it: [release] Minecraft first turned out to be a singleplayer/online game where you built anything your heart desired with a large variety of blocks. This gamemode was and still is called Creative. But since Survival Mode is all the rage, Creative seems to be lost behind all of the commotion, only played by the poor men of the Internet. [b]What exactly is Survival Mode?[/b] Survival Mode was the second gamemode Notch (aka Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft) has ever made to Minecraft. The gamemode is all what you can imagine by the title - surviving. With the ability to create any structure with a large variety of interesting craftable and obtainable items, endless hours of gameplay. And with the exciting Multiplayer, it just keeps getting better. Survival Mode all started out with [url=http://minecraft.net/survivaltest]Survival Test[/url], with Notch just toying with things that would soon become the incredible gamemode we all play today. Next came /indev/, also known as In Development(?), which was just Survival Test, only, well, I'm not exactly sure why he did this, but he did it for a very good reason I bet. After that came /infdev/, also known as Infinite Development(?), but again, like /indev/. I'm still boggled about why he did this. And finally, after everything was prepared, he released the fantastic game of Minecraft Alpha (also known as Minecraft Survival), the game we HAD until December 20, when the game was updated to Beta and the price was doubled! Further updates will continue to be free but this means the game will be nearing completion far in the future! [/release] [release] [b]What are mobs?[/b] Mobs are creatures that roam the generated terrain of every level. They can range from nice pigs to green dicks that blow up your shit. There are currently [u]11[/u] mobs in Survival Mode, with 4 of them being friendly. [b]Pigs[/b] - Pigs are friendly mobs. They may seem cute, but not everyone lives forever. So you'll have to kill such adorable creatures for their delicious bacon that heals 1.5 hearts (cooked bacon heals 4 hearts). [b]Sheep[/b] - Sheep are just as adorable as pigs. You are able magically shear them with your hands by punching them, which results in 1-3 blocks of wool being dropped. [b]Cows[/b] - Cows seem friendly, but they look pretty stupid. But these mobs drop up to 1-3 leather, which can collected to be crafted into really crappy armor. [b]Chickens[/b] - Chickens may look like ducks, but try not to get them confused too much. Chickens can drop from 1-3 feathers when killed. [b]Zombies[/b] - Zombies looks like they're ready to hug, right? Well try not to get too close, because these fuckers pack a punch. They drop 1-3 feathers for God knows why when killed. When it turns day, they begin to burn (there must be no blocks above them, even leaves). [b]Skeletons[/b] - These assholes like to shoot arrows at you from anywhere when they're close to you. Do NOT get trapped in a pit with Skeletons above you. When killed, they drop 1-3 arrows. Just like Zombies, they burn as well when it's day. [b]Spiders[/b] - Spiders lurk anywhere, and are ready to jump at you whenever. They can be a big pain in the ass, especially when there are more than one. When killed, they drop 1-3 string. But with Spiders, they do not start on fire, but most of the time they become friendly, making nice house guests. [b]Slimes[/b] - Slimes are currently broken for some odd reason. But they are very adorable mobs, even if they are unfriendly. Slimes can range from many sizes; smallest slimes don't hurt you, so you can have them follow you and keep them as a pet! When they are killed, they usually drop 1-3(?) slime balls. [b]Creeperssssssssssss[/b] - These gigantic faggot dicks are the epiphany of why I hate this game at times. They can be lurking ANYWHERE - even more concealed than spiders, and jump at you and blow up for no reason. They may seem like they need a hug (like Zombies) but be careful - they will destroy your shit. And what makes it worse is that they do NOT burn in daylight. But they drop 1-3 gunpowder when they are killed (not blown up) that can be crafted with sand to create TNT. [b]Pig Zombies[/b] - Pig Zombies were added in during the Halloween Update. Though they can only be found in the Nether, they are completely friendly (until you disturb them by hurting them). [b]Ghasts[/b] - Ghasts were added in during the Halloween Update. These large, white, box-like, annoying fuckers shoot fireballs at you from wherever they are floating, even if you aren't that close. Thank god Notch fixed them from crying so much when on fire, you'd probably quit playing the game when it happened. [/release] [release] [b]What is the Nether?[/b] The Nether (underworld, hell, etc.) was added in during the Halloween Update. When you construct a portal (an outline of a box used with obsidian and then lit with flint and steel) it will teleport you to a randomly generated level called the Nether. There are all sorts of interesting things there. But don't let me bore you with words, go try it for yourself!

[quote]Handsome Pete posted: Yeah, there is. With your symptoms you sound like you couldn't really be sentient throughout the day if this shit was so severe. You'd be ripping your eyes out because the entire facepunch logo isnt in the top left. Firstly, OCD isn't entirely based around perfectionism. Secondly, we've already established that my definition of "severe" is skewed. This is due to the fact that i don't spend much time with people. And before you make that into an insult, AUTISM REMEMBER Edited: BlackWind posted: if anything, waht i would do i try and put it off and try and act like a "normal" person... whatever normal is... Average lets say I'm not ashamed of being crazy. Why would i hide it?

I like this thread, because there isn't drama in the thread title.
