  Summer Refresh!  

After a very long break I am finally back! I didn't mean to be gone as long as I was but once you get busy with something else time just flies by. First I want to apologize for the lack of updates and fixes. I must say the staff team did a great job keeping things stable. I noticed the server is not pulling in the amount of players it used to and funds are starting to dry up. To remedy this I discussed some plans with my admins. 

Summer Plans:

  • We will be going through each world fixing and tweaking things to prefection.
    • Auryn: Each game will be checked and will be decided if it's too broken or boring to keep. New games will be added to replace those. Our goal here is to have many games that share the same core which will help keep things stable. Also we would like to look into having several mini tournaments.
    • Enceladus: Now that 1.8 is out and stable this world will get a complete terrain makeover along with a few tweaks to the overall system. It will still be hardcore survival but without the snow and ice it once had.

Long-Term Plans:

  • When 1.9 is released and the network is stable I plan on generating a brand new Fantasia world that will include all the new biomes. All the features from the current Fantasia will most likely be pulled over to this one and the current Fantasia world will still be accessible.
  • Pandora is still in the work and slowly coming together. I know this project is taking forever but like I said in the past, the rest of the server takes top priority. Also with the constant release of new very broken updates from Mojang, EULA, and the Bukkit fiasco, it just made it very hard to find the time to work on a project like that. If things continue to keep quiet and if the summer plans pull the network from the grave then we will be able to get this world released in the near future.

I hope these plans satisfy those of you that were wondering what was going on with the Fantasia. Her heart will forever beat as long as there are players.

15w31a:

It’s time! It’s that time again! It’s finally here! It’s snapshot time! Snapshots!

A little later than I’d have liked, but we’re now ready to start public testing of Minecraft 1.9: The Combat Update. As you can expect from the name, the update is mostly about cuddling and farming plants.

I’m not going to tell you what’s new, but I will tell you what isn’t new… yet. These are the things you should not expect to find in this super-alpha-development-preview-test-build-thing:

  • Any balancing of any kind. Seriously, expect things to be hilariously overpowered or underpowered.
  • Melee combat changes. Melee combat will change, just not in this snapshot.
  • Shields. They tie into the melee combat changes.
  • The meaning of life. That’s also for another snapshot.
  • Hugs. You can find those over here instead.
  • Perfect respawn mechanics of the end. You can respawn the dragon right now by drawing a creeper face with clay, but it won’t respawn everything yet. That’s temporary.
  • Lots of new items/blocks which don’t exist yet. That’s why you’re respawning the dragon like above.
  • New potions or enchantments. There will be new ones, just not right now!
  • Subtitles support. It’s still planned for 1.9!
  • Proper offhand interaction support. Right now it doesn’t entirely work as expected, we have to go through every interaction and decide what should happen each time.
  • Lots of stuff, really. We have a lot of things planned for 1.9, and this is just the first snapshot. Gotta keep some surprises!
  • A note for resource pack authors: We have changed the format of resource packs slightly, and have support for versioning packs now. You can still use incompatible packs, it just needs extra confirmation from the user.

    A note for everybody else: Back up your world before updating. Things will break, especially in such an early snapshot. Backup your world. Back it up. Do it now.

    Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

    To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

    Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.

  I am Markus Persson aka Notch, Creator of Minecraft - Ask me Anything!  

Hi! I'm the guy who created the first version of Minecraft in June 2009. I worked on it alone up until late 2010 when we started Mojang, and I finally left the lead developer position in December of 2011. I enjoy house music and programming, and my favorite color is purple. Ask me anything!

If you happen to have some money, you can donate it to the EFF and help make the world a better place!


edit: The AMA is over! Thanks for all your questions!

  Subreddit renovations  

Just in time for summer we've made a few updates to this subreddit. Firstly, we made some minor changes to our CSS. This includes the villager in the comment box, a few sidebar changes and some work on the submit page as well as a few other minor things I don't remember right now. Can you spot them all? As always, if you find bugs/issues with our stylesheet or have ideas for improvements, please send us a message!

More importantly, we've re-worked our ruleset. We realized our rules page was getting a bit long, so we split up the rules into two parts: rules and guidelines. Guidelines are not enforced as strictly, but we still ask you to adhere to them as to keep the quality of posts and comments to some standard. For some guidelines we also added a few words on how we interpret them when moderating.

Now, you're probably wondering what we're actually changing. Here's a list:

  • Rephrased a lot of rules/guidelines and split everything up into two sections
  • Added a wiki page on ban appeals for if you do ever get banned
  • Added two new sorts of tired posts that we deem removable: Chicken jockeys and crafting recipes; neither are very interesting or original yet they are still posted very often
  • Duplicate submissions from different sources will now be removed if no additional information is being added
  • Bad titles are now removable; this mainly applies to titles like "Searge on Twitter". We will be using /u/AutoModerator to enforce this so we won't be forced to take down posts where people have already commented.

We recommend you all have a look at the new rules/guidelines combination:

Lastly, we'd like to give a shout-out to /r/MinecraftBuddies. It's a subreddit where you can look for people to play Minecraft with. We seem to get a lot of these posts lately and quite frankly, they're neither original nor successful most of the time. If you're looking for someone to play with, this might just be the place for you.

And as always, we invite you to swing by our chatroom.

The Minecraft Book

Video Tutorial Series-  How to Find Diamonds

From YouTube user
DariusAK

Here’s a simple how to video with regard to finding diamonds.  I agree with this chap that he got lucky in finding diamonds so quickly, but generally speaking, this is the way to do it.  Sinking several mineshafts into various walls than having branches off those shafts is the way to reliably find diamonds.  But make sure you don’t get lost.

To avoid getting lost, follow this tip:  Place all torches on the wall to your right, not on the floor.  Then, if you get turned around somehow, you will remember that going out from your base, all the torches on the walls are on the right side, so if you want to go back, simply make sure that all the torches are to your left, and follow the trail back.

  1.8 Pre-Release..... Released!  

The bountiful update has been sewn together nicely by Mojang and we've been presented with a pre-release for testing! Here is a small roundup of what we have as part of 1.8!

 First of all we have an enormous pile of new blocks to play with!

  • Andesite, Granite and Diorite with a polished version of both
  • Bouncy Slime Blocks
  • Prismarine, Dark Prismarine, Prismarine Brick and Sea Lanterns
  • Red Sandstone, Smooth and Chiseled Red Sandstone, Stairs and Slabs
  • Sponge Blocks
  • Coarse Dirt
  • Chiseled and Mossy Stone Brick, and Mossy Cobblestone crafting recipes.
  • Barrier Blocks

We were treated to a new generated structure for our 1.8 worlds, as well as several new mobs and drops.

  • Ocean Monument / Underwater Temple made up of the new prismarine blocks and sea lanterns and inhabited by two varieties of the Temple Guardian mobs. These drop shards to create the brick types, lanterns, and sponge blocks.
  • Endermen now have a chance to spawn Endermites when teleporting.
  • Rabbits were added to the game and they drop rabbit hide, raw rabbit and rabbit's foot. This has allowed the addition of Cooked Rabbit and Rabbit Stew cooking recipes, crafting of leather with hides and the brewing of Potions of Leaping.
  • Sheep now drop mutton for yet another animal food source!

Other new items added to our arsenal of goodies for our 1.8 update include 

  • The Iron Trapdoor
  • Buttons may now be placed on all surfaces of a block.
  • Armor Stands.
  • Customizable banners.
  • Doors, fences and fence gates now have a unique texture/color for each wood type used to craft them.

We had a massive shake up of the enchanting system, with lapis added as currency and levels required for renaming items have changed. Villager trading has changed dramatically changed with the addition of new villager types and the splitting of item trades off into their different villager types. Villager breeding has changed and farmers will now harvest and replant wheat crops. Player skins also got a makeover with two layers that may be toggled on and off in game, as well as individual skins for each leg and arm.

Mojang have introduced Spectator mode - game mode 3, a fully customizable world generation tool, a modifiable world border function and many WorldEdit style commands for the modification of world terrain. Adventure map makers were treated to a pile of new commands for command blocks, and a big scoreboard update.  

For the full list of changed please feel free to visit the official Mojang website article here. You may also report any bugs directly to Mojang if you are playing on the pre-released version of the game!
