I stumbled across this while surfing the web, and thought I ought to share it with you guys.

This is an under development game. It is currently in alpha, but you can play it and it's pretty fun. Basically you start off with a randomly generated map and just build whatever you want, and can make some neat things in it. It even has a multiplayer mode. The graphics aren't great, but I bet the creator will add better textures in future releases.

Here's the link: http://www.minecraft.net/

and here are some pictures of a tower I made.

if you dig down deep you can sometimes find lava or underground lakes. I built a dungeon with a lake of lava running through it. You have to be careful digging upward though, you might burst into a lake and flood your dungeon, so place sponge blocks along the way while you dig. They erase and stop water from flowing around them in a 5x5x5 volume, so that way if you do break into a lake accidentally, you don't flood your dungeon.

I think if you host your own server you can import your own textures, but I don't know the specifics nor have I tried. He provides you with the software needed to host and everything. You probably already know, but just in case you don't, hit B to bring up a menu with more blocks.

pixel accelerator? I don't even know what that is. Maybe you need to update your java?

HOLY SHIT! I always wanted something like this! When I was young I was dreaming about building subterranean galleries and houses. Now I can do it with this! Yay :D.

for some reason though I am unable to connect to any multiplayer servers. Someone told me I should try uninstalling Java and then reinstalling it. I can play single player fine though, so I don't think it's my java.

On the minecraft window it just says I couldn't connect, and that the server is probably down. But it says that for all of them, even the ones that have people on them, so I know that isn't the problem.

On the Java console, it doesn't give me any errors, it just tells me what it's doing. The only thing on it about networks is this, and it doesn't seem to help my situation at all.

Just saying (since I used the forum's wonderful search function) that EVERYONE should play this. So fun! I recently got hooked and now I'm addicted to it.

The creator has updated this game so much. Now there is a mode called survival where you can craft tools and other things to help you survive against "mobs" of zombies, skeletons, and suicidal monsters called creepers. Its really cool and everyone who's played it before should definately check this out again if you stopped playing.

I had been playing the free version for a week or two, insanely addictive.

Survival turned out to be even more fun (which you can purchase for just 10 euros, which is apparently a 50% off deal for as long as until he finishes the game properly!)

Some creations I've made in multiplayer:

The map generation system created for Survival is just incredible as well, check out this video fly-through made by the creator, the worlds created really are endless!

I still have alpha from F2P weekend, ad it works just fine for single-player.

Also, for classic, NEW FLAT is a great server. I'm an advbuilder (and cookie monster) there.

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
