Anybody played much 1.8 yet? Any thoughts?

I've been on leave for the past couple weeks in Ohio so I haven't been able to play at all.

have only made some slime blocks, have not tested them yet, been a bit busy, but planning on replacing the ground outside my wall with the stuff... the larger draw distance is nice

If you do end up taking Nibiru down, all I ask for is a copy of the map file.

I was reading into the bukkit thing and along with the Microsoft purchase, crazy stuff is happening right now.

Sad to hear that Nibiru may be lost :(

 

edit - It was from Mojang? I thought it was from a bukkit developer? I don't know the full details, but I read something about Mojang owning Bukkit, but keeping that a secret.



That's what had me confused. Last I'd checked, they DID own Bukkit, so yeah, doesn't make much sense. Strange.



 SW-5120-1900-6153

Supposedly when they hired the people from Bukkit, there wasn't information that they actually owned Bukkit itself so people were contributing without knowing Mojang owned it



That's the thing - I thought it was made very clear that Mojang bought Bukkit outright a while ago. That's why it's so confusing that so many of their codewriters are suddenly so upset.

Regardless, the biggest issue seems to be that there just aren't any posts that I can find that explain exactly wtf is going on.

Yeah that's what I was curious about, not a whole lot of information or I'm sure it has to be dug through somewhere in a massive thread or something. People upset cited that they only hired the bukkit guys, but didn't disclose that they actually owned bukkit.

Now that's what the people talking about it on the forum I was looking at the other day were saying and they claimed they had trouble finding information at that time that stated that Mojang owned bukkit when they hired the guys.
