Thoughts on 1.8!

Post  O_N_I_A_C on Sun Sep 11, 2011 8:30 am

What do you think about 1.8 pre-release/leak? My first thoughts was that everything is over-powered, creepers were supposed to be a hard mob to fight but now with sprinting it is too easy, Zombies and Skeletons just get pwned and Endermen suck hard. Although the creative mode is really cool with an in-built fly mod and everything the survival kinda sucks. Come to think of it I do like the new dungeons, strongholds and villages they are quite cool... and the new eating animation and the health is much better too, it has watermelons. Notch said animal run away but I haven't seen anything different but that might be 1.9. Animals, ANIMALS!!! Pigs have snouts... lol!

I know what you mean by 'survival' isn't actually that hard, but apparently, loads of people do find it hard.

Also, we've been Bawshin' about on a server, good times.

Yeah, Im generally the guy who runs around building so I'd normaly have peaceful on and have TMI and Zombe's mod pack. I went on a new world knocked down some trees, got 3 wooden swords put it on hard to check out monsters and it was too easy. Watermelons are the best addition though.

I'm too lazy to install 1.8, lol.

I forgot about Minecraft as a game long ago. Now I think about it as a platform for machinimas.

My main thought at the moment is:

How the hell did my 2 minute video of me running around (at 2 in the morning) manage to get almost 10k views?!?!??

I just don't understand it. The only place I posted this is on the minecraft forums. That is all, nothing else.

Very Happy I know. I should have paid more attention to it, but as I said I did it at 2 in the morning lol.

The whole point though is getting views on to the page.

Definitely not the goal for me when I make a video. I always try to make my videos as entertaining as possible. If I'd want to have lots of views, I could have simply make a video with title "JUSTIN BIEBER GOT SHOT IN LONDON" and then put a MS Painte'd version of dead JB. It would have much more views than the video I made that meant to be entertaining, but I won't get the satisfaction out of my video anymore, since I didn't make someone's time being worth itself.

I'd rather make 100 people laugh instead of making 1000 people go "meh".

Yeah, sorry I wasn't really explaining myself very well, I don't have internet so I am using my phone to get on the net :s

What I meant was that although the enderman video was pretty crap, the minecraft video won't be. The fact that I have managed to get so many views on that video is good news for the release tomorrow. That is because it shows that the Minecraft community has woken up a bit. It has become more active because of the imminent release of 1.8. Also my name has become slightly more well know in the MC video community (my video is trending on the MC forum). And even more important than that is that the moderators on the video section might actually know my name now. The trailer was removed from the site (twice) with no reason given. Hopefully when I put the video of tomorrow they will see my name and recognise me.

Anyways, it got 5 more subscribers so far. Not a bad thing for our release Very Happy

Somehow watching you get chased by monsters and killed entertains me... Especially zombies when you managed to *tame* some for a machinima. Razz
