This guy replaced ALL the sounds in MC with his own voice.

So I saw this thread on reddit...


Please don't get rid of the Automatic aspect of Minecraft, Mojang.


...what's the scoop? Are they really trying to eliminate this stuff?

Short answer: no.

Long answer: they are fixing bugs. But not just any old bugs, obvious bugs that everyone with any sense knew to avoid using -- the beauty that was the original minecart boosters were so buggy that you could cause a server crash if you over used the boost giving your minecart essentially 'infinite' energy. It's one of the reasons why I am very careful with my redstone creations, too often when I was building circuits at bridgeport I would rely on a quirk that was clearly an unintended behavior. Subsequent circuits/automation are very clearly within the 'normal' parameters of minecraft.

I think the problem comes from Notch's initial knee jerk reactions against certain types of automation -- when he was still developing, he went out of his way to kill mob farms many many different times. But that perspective changed with Jeb and Dinnerbone -- mob farms became more resource intensive to build, but they realized at some point you need to stop punishing players who want to build in survival, and allow 'character'/resource progression.

So no, automation is not going away. The charcoal generator will still generate charcoal, the mob trap will still kill mobs (unless they decide on an utterly different mob spawning algorithm, but that honestly is unlikely as it hasn't changed that much since 1.0), your farms and hoppers and snow golem farms will likely continue to work. Caveat: snow golem farm might fail if golems do not 'snow' blocks they are not immediately touching, but it is a minor change, the fundamentals will still work.

Yawn. But wait, scroll down on TheMogMiner's twitter feed and blocks are becoming models that can be replaced in the resource pack. Man holy, batshit! We could actually have buildings with proper three dimensional textures without having to go to multiblock depths...

Much respect to the guys at Mojang. The "heartbleed" exploit/bug only became public ~24 hours ago and they're already patching their servers? Nice.

For any nerds in the room who would like to know more, see:

https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/d...=CVE-2014-0160

I went and read up on it and almost posted in the Programming thread. Much of it is, in practice, well beyond my expertise - but I understand it. First thing I did was to find the "test page" somebody made where you can test various websites. Looks like banks and financial institutions are on top of things already.

Am I correct in noting that Cloudflare is responsible for letting the cat out of the bag first?

No. They cite another announcement (from the OpenSSL developers) on that page...

Nope, wait, look.

Here's the ZDNet article, and the specific quote from that article:

They appear to have used the methods described by OpenSSL. Unfortunately, for everyone else, these methods were not ready for broad deployment.
So Cloudflare DID apparently break the news to a wider audience, as it were.

To be fully robust here: I am not sure your interpretation meets both the evidence at hand (the citation within the blog post), and the textual statements you cite as evidence that they dropped the bombshell -- that CloudFlare 'revealed... details about the security hole and that they've fixed the bug' does not mean they announced it. The fact is that CloudFlare says the vulnerability was announced by the OpenSSL people (it was: http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20140407.txt), but perhaps you are right in saying that they made it known to more laypeople -- yet again, the blog post reveals that companies have known about this for a while and have been fixing it prior to the announcement. Those in the business probably follow OpenSSL's pages, and everyone else is left scrounging for whatever press reports or blags come out.

As a layperson I was just linking to what ZDNet said.

So has everyone switched to the "new" login that isn't just your MC username and password?

I have been using the original method since I don't care much about twitch or the other new things. But a recent tweet that says to change my password makes me think it's worth it to set up the newer login style.

Am I the last one still just using my MC username and password?

Edit: so I logged in to make the migration and see this:
Secure your account
You haven’t migrated yet? Seriously? Migration means you can use the same log in to access all of your Mojang games. It makes things far more secure.

Minecraft 1.7.6 is out! The 1.7.6 client isn't compatible with the 1.7.5 server build, so if you do update, make sure you manually select the older build in your launcher profile before trying to login to the AN server, until Brad and turtle get everything updated.

1.7.7 is out already. There is a change (as of 1.7.6) that will make us leave the server in either online or offline mode. We will have to make it permanent going forward:

I have some code that may be able to convert usernames and UUIDs that's part of a, uh, side project I'm working on. I haven't looked into the latest 1.7.6 and 1.7.7 server builds, but I suspect it wouldn't be terribly difficult to convert profiles between the two.

Question: can other people that have a MC account log in to just fart around and look at stuff on the server? I assume whitelisting means you get all the treats including breaking of blocks, but I'm talking about if I tell someone about AN's server and they just want to walk around with no effect.

Is that already a thing? I remember something about inviting AN members to wander a while ago.

So it goes.

Pretty sure that if you're not on the whitelist, you can't login to the server, period (at least, that was my experience a while back). There are plugins that will allow a "guest" mode, but I don't know if ours supports it.

There was a period where a mod we ran allowed for logging in and viewing, that's not there now. You are either whitelisted and can even log into the server or you are not and can't.

Nice. Presumably the world needs to have a dungeon located relatively close to the spawn point. It's be cool to do this as a group no?

iJak suggested that I be sure to watch an episode of South Park called "Investigative Murder Porn" because it has a Minecraft tie-in.

This I have done.

Now you might want to see it, maybe?
