maybe if you could use the maps for something other then looking at and flexing your epeen, though it would be awesome if you could turn it into an actual game, instead of a just a map making tool by itself.

"whats creative about copying someone else`s creation?"

Well there`s copying, tributes, covers, homages, stealing, swiping, ripping off, tipping one`s hat to, satire, and watermark theft.

Did I miss any?

Adaminium, Aka Bedrock looks like this.


Obsidian looks like this.

RecycleElf: Adamanium is not obsidian, Obsidian is black. Doing a little search on Minewiki Adamanium both looks different and is totally indestructible.

Apparently some people using Indev have made cannons with that material, Although I don`t see the point since you wouldn`t be able to move or aim them

i feel alitle confused by CrakJakr`s explenation on obsidian...

With both fluids, lava and water, there are `source` blocks. the block that everything comes out off. you can only pick up sourceblocks with the bucket. if you wet a Lava Sourceblock with water (do not have to be a sourceblock of water) it becomes obsidian (or Adminium as it has earlier been nicked)the obsidian can only be mined by the Diamond pickaxe and it takes a long time.

In the upcoming Halloween patch, you can make portals to the hell dimention by making a 3 blcok tall and 4 block wide "gate" with obsidian blocks (leaving a 2x2 hole in the middle)
See model a.
a)####
# #
__#__#___

and using Flint and steel (fire equipment) and light a fire inside the portal to start the portal.

Anyway, you can choose from finding Lava naturaly under caves and just drown it all and mine the obsidian, or you can pick it up in buckets, make a mold of you walls out of dir

Cool, will give it a try. Only thing is I usually play the multiplayer, and I think the lava and water physics are slightly different from the single player with regards to source blocks. But thanks anyway :D

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. About making the obsidian, Only scoop up still (non-moving) lava with your buckets, the trench of lava must not be moving otherwise you`ll end up with cobblestone instead.

Nah, Get buckets of lava and a few buckets of water, make sure you have at least a few diamond pick axes as well. Dig a trench, Surround trench with cobblestones, Carefully fill trench with lava, Then pour still water spring on top of lava. After lava solidifies, Pick up spring with empty bucket. After that just mine your new black obsidian. Rinse and repeat. :-)

@paddy215: I get that you don`t see creativity in this (I`m not sure that I do, either) but your comment is exceptionally idiotic. Did you know that Bob Dylan wrote "All Along the Watchtower"? That Jimi Hendrix - what an uncreative bastard.

If it were a copy it wouldn`t be in Minecrafy - and it would violate copyright laws. If you take a concept and make it your own, it`s called "art."

So I guess my point is: if you`re going to troll, at least be creative about it.

Don`t think of it as copying, think of it as more like translating. The challenge is in replicating a complex design in a far simpler one.

"...could the people in this comments section citing "creativity" as an excuse for this particular mammoth waste of time please explain to me whats creative about copying someone else`s creation?"

Why sculpt a human body? Why paint a sunset? We already have those.
Why use some other way to re-create anything?

Im with you man, art I dont understand is stupid. And really, anyone that makes something just for fun is dumb.

That was the coolest thing I`ve seen someone waste their time on.
I have to say, Minecraft users seriously have all the time in the friggin world. It`s like they can pause time so they can use it.

My gaming clan/group/thing are going to restart our Minecraft server on Hallowe`en after the update. Our world is too cultivated now, so it`s back to the beginning :D although I will be sad to lose my first redstone circuit.

iceblack: I had an awesome `World 1` with bridges, towers, a volcano, minecart roller coaster, tunnels connecting several islands, farms, etc..

Lost it all, Java messed up and corrupted my save file (Still don`t know how). I was rather pissed off about it for about an hour, But then came to the rationalization that the game is still in Alpha and that that`s just what happens sometimes this early in development.

Btw, I didn`t give the game up. I`ve started over and already have a nice obsidian & glass tower made. :-)

By what justification is it "not a game". It`s basically taking the sandbox style gameplay made popular by Gmod and Halo Forge and centering an entire game on it with no limits. Lack of limits means that they have to keep the graphic quality down so it is accessible to everyone, it also adds to the quality of the game by keeping it so simple that anyone can do anything.

I want to see him punch a hole in the wall and flood the whole place.

Minecraft is a great game. It`s like legos and the same reason people play with legos is the same reason they play minecraft. Only people who hate this game are inbreed hillbillies who can`t make anything more then square blocks because they are skilless.

and for everyone else

stop watching these goddamn videos and then complain it`s minecraft

the title says it`s minecraft, don`t watch it if you dislike minecraft, it`s not hard people.


and it`s not like this being posted means something else is not going to get posted, there is not a limited amount of space(well, there is but it is prob in the many thousands of vids even with the current server), everything that is acceptable enough for iab gets posted. so this video is not interfering with anything else.

@IRockYeah

they are not doing it to impress you or anyone else, you douchebag. they are doing it because it is fun for them, and then they share it with the world so that those that like to see it can and have fun as well.


waste of time? in my opinion, as cool as it is, yes, in yours, yes, in theirs, no. whose time is spent? only theirs.

Dude it doesn`t really matter cuz it`s a game. People like them, some don`t, but they are all made for a reason. This one is cool cuz it gets the people that have more creativity than to just blow poo up. If you can`t appreciate that there are people out there that are nothing like you expected, then you`re a really lame person. Grow up and quit trollin plz

But when people like him, with hundreds of posts on a website called I Am Bored, call a game and it`s players pointless and wankers, that`s when I smell a hypocrite!

Irockyeah,

What the hell are you talking about? So you already show us your incredulity and then proclaim that they are lame or something? So you don`t get it, but can make inferences about it.

What the hell are you even SAYING? Do you even know? Do people play video games to get laid? Do people build small models to get laid? Is that all people do? Do in order to get laid?

@IRockYeah you`re totally right, because all video games are played to become popular and get laid. Video games are obviously not played for fun, that`s just stupid.

Ooookaayyyy. Well Ive googled Minecraft, Coz Im curious and Im a gamer. But I have to say, its the most pointless thing ever and to be honest Im gonna say these Minecraft-ers are pretty sad.
Maybe Im just old and dont get this kinda stuff but painstakingly recreating whole cities and gamescapes out of blocks has to be one of the most desperate acts ever.
Who are they impressing? Apart from other Minecraft-ers (who from now Im just going to call wankers).
Do they sincerely believe this is going to get them laid? Or make them popular? (except amongst other wankers and wankeresses).
Anyway thanks for listening to my little rant, Im glad I cleared my chest :/

Gay is also the definition of a word that means "stupid." Get with the times man. Do you think "cool" actually means below a certain temperature too?

the community is one of the best compared to all other gaming communities, that DDoS attack was a one time attack from some stupid /b/tard that was pissed at something, or just looking for a laugh. It`s only happened once.

The only problem I have with minecraft is the community. It`s full of 13 year old aspies who whine and DDoS servers if notch doesn`t release an update every week.

Other than that it`s great. Totally worth the £8, and there`s some good minecraft groups out there who don`t take things seriously and are just there to have a laugh.

If they`re gonna put that much effort into it, they could at least make it a bit more sprawled out at the beginning. I`m pretty sure Medical Services was way bigger and it made it all seem way too cramped. And I swear I blinked and missed Fontaine`s Futuristics and Fort Frolic. Were they even there? Two of my favorite parts just skipped over.

So great job team, I certainly don`t have the patience for it, but if you`re gonna follow some parts to the letter, you should probably do them all close to that to avoid ruining a masterpiece with disappointment.
