The Minecraft Official Thread

Post by Roco on Thu Jul 05, 2012 9:23 pm


What is Minecraft?
Minecraft, in a nutshell, is legos for awesome people.
Minecraft, if you are not aware, takes place in a 16 bit world in which everything is a cube, including yourself. You play as Steve, a survivor alone in a post apocalyptic world (unless you choose to play in multiplayer), struggling to survive. The world is very peaceful, but once night falls, monsters appear and roam the world. A nice well light shelter keeps them at bay, at least until morning when they burst into flames.
So what kind of game is this? It's a beautiful four in one; Survival, Creative Building, Exploration, and Adventure. The game consists of 4 modes, the first being Single Player Survival, where you must build to survive against monsters, and yet, at the same time prosper and eventually defeat the Enderdragon. The second is Single Player Creative, where you have no fear of monsters (yet they do spawn), and can build with an unlimited amount of resources as you please. The third and fourth are exactly the same as the latter two except you do so with friends.

Crafting
Crafting is what makes Minecraft fun. You are spawned in a world consisting of trees, minerals, naturally forming mines, and just basic necessities. While this is fine and dandy, this alone would leave you dead on your first night. Crafting allows you to turn the wood blocks from the trees into doors, torches, boats, and lets you prosper. However, with no guidance to what does what, you are lead blindly into making combinations until you find what suits you. The best strategy is to sit down, think, and put stuff into a 9 square figure of the item you want. It almost always works.

The Monsters
I know you guys, especially blitz. None of you want to play a game that you can't kill something in, and this is just the game. With countless monsters, unending naturally formed dungeons, and hidden tombs with traps, this game makes the most of 16 bit blocks.
The Creeper

The Creeper is the bane of anyone who plays Minecraft, and the number 1 killer. He has no attack, he will merely roam up towards you. However, if he gets too close, he'll explode and kill you instantaneously. He sucks eggs. Killing him is very difficult (because you can't get close to it), but does reward you with gunpowder, the source of TNT and true happiness.
The Enderman

The Enderman, while not as common as the other monsters, is the most difficult to defeat. They will not attack you, approach you, and generally wont bother you. Unless you look at them. Once you make eye contact with an Enderman, do not break it. No matter what, do NOT blink. Once Steve turns away from the Enderman, he will teleport behind you and begin beating your head in. If you attack him, he'll teleport away for a few seconds, then teleport back behind you and begin attacking again. I love the look of Endermen, and they are my personal favorites. They will reward you with ender pearls once killed, which inevitably lead you to a complete new dimension. In this new dimension, The End, you must face the Enderdragon and probably die. They don't like water, so if you can waddle into water without breaking eye contact, that would be perfect! On top of all of this, they have a strange habit of picking up blocks, for not real reason at all. They can pick up every block, except obsidian.



Others
There are also zombie (the most common), spiders, Ghasts, Zombie Pigmen, Cave Spiders, Skeletons, Skeleton Jockeys, Slimes, Blazes, Magma Cubes, Wolves, and Silverfish. There are probably more, but I can't think of any others.



TLDR
Its a great game, and if you haven't played it you should. If you have, lets discuss it. Post pictures of your creations, strange things, servers, and just anything else you want here!

Y U No Y U NO PLAY YET?

Minecraft is great, its what divides boys from men in the world of gamers. Those who can't handle it will wind up playing it until they die... those who can will play it as if it were a normal video game.

...Your right... Ptep probably can't handle it lol

Slightly outdated picture of my house. I added pens in the back for farm animals, other than that it's the same from the outside now.
