Anyone play Minecraft?

Forums - PC Discussion - Anyone play Minecraft?

Yes, at home and at work (10 pm-6 am). It is one of those games where you start playing it and don't notice 2 to 3 hours go by. I have not been addicted to a game this much since the World of Warcraft and Fallout 3.

I just got the game last week and since then I've probably spent about 75% of that time playing it, and this is coming from someone who normally has a short attention span when it comes to games. I've recently collected a pretty nice stockpile for arrows, iron, and gold, although I'm still pretty low on diamond. I've built a huge castle with 3 levels of stone wall, a huge courtyard, and a 3 story building within the walls. I've also completed a moat around my castle (which wasn't easy and took a LONG time). It was pretty much impenetrable from the getgo but I just keep adding on to it, cause, well, I can.. My next task is to create a farm, as I am burning through the ham pretty fast and it's getting repetitive to kill all those pigs. Peta will be pleased to hear about my farm.. I also am looking to build a tower for sniping and a pyramid. I am essentially industrializing the entire island I am on. One of my biggest goals is to find a dungeon/spawner as I have mined far and deep and have yet to find one.. All this and I have barely ventured from my main island yet! This game could theoretically last me forever!

I'm so interested in seeing what other people have done in this game. Could you make a tour video? Failing that can you take some screenshots of your game and post them, that would rock.

Also creature spawners are pretty cool, just pray you don't get a skelly archer one. OUCH! lol.

This is my video of me tangling with one. If you want to feel the experience for the first time in your game then don't watch this video till after you have found one but this one spawn almost on the surface of the game. Was a VERY shallow cave, wich I though would never happen. Well live and learn I gyess.

Minecraft isn't a game anymore.  It's a game platform.  This shit is getting insane.

In other news, I just learned how to make a torch!  (It turns out what I thought was a lump of coal was actually flint.  Oops.  Now my night operations are GO!)

hah .. i though flint was oil forever.... had torches but no flint and tender

side note around the 31st torches will burn out. and laps which will be introduced to the game will burn eternal

And before the shit storm comes, all of your previous torches, (before the 31st), they will turn into lamps.

My roommate uses a skeleton archer spawner for infinite arrows. He designed this thing around it so they get trapped and fall onto cactuses. Then water carries the arrows into a little collection bin for easy pickup. It's pretty nifty.

Oh wow i gatta go on youtube and learn how to make one of those, no joke. Does your roommate make videos?



The only spawner I've found so far is a spider spawner. I surrounded it with cobble stone except 1 block and just hit them through the block safely, went in, took loot, closed it up.As for the cactus thing, sounds easy. Dig right below the spawn room with an area equal to the floor of the spawn room, set up cactuses, along the bottom with a little bit of water and dig out a waterway. But yeah, skele archers are nasty. They shouldn't be able to move as fast as you =P
