  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!

  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!

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.
