New Minecraft Map Format, “Anvil”
Snap !!! we posted the great news at the same time...lol
I knew they were increasing the sky height but this has ended up being much larger than I was expecting. Hopefully it will make world expansion with new terrains and biomes a lot easier.
And all the mods makers are probably excited and groaning about the possible need for them to spend a lot of time updating their mods. Bukkit especially.
Woot. 128 was a little low sometimes
But Misnik, even church spires have limits. I believe the aim is to allow people to build above the clouds once more (of course, clouds can now be turned off).
Im not sure I understand this word
But seriously I think it will be great. I do miss playing in the clouds sometimes. also the current version makes mountain top buildings very difficult in some areas. +64 more would have been plenty. 256 (another whole 128 ) will be AWESOME!
My current work site on frontier will have 13 towers with buttresses/arches connecting some the outer ones to the inner ones. The current height of 64 was already causing me to put them way lower than I really wanted so they didn't look too horrid. This will be a big boost. though I don't expect to get near 256.
Well I will increase the height of my hotel to the full height also, now that might take awhile, need to start the stockpile of materials now.
I claim the moon at my terrain, as some day there will be "Mooncraft"
Someone has already been developing a game that involves mining asteroids and building up your spacecraft. This game is inspired by Minecraft, but completely separate.
wow. great news for all that network bandwidth chewed up as well. should improve lag natually.
Awesome, I got my tower up to the 128 block and realized I was out of room. It looks funny from the ground with the top being so wide. Maybe I can finally fix it.
I'm going to build Mt Everest
I know some guys who can give you advice on that....
The Goon Show Site - Script - The Greatest Mountain in the World (Series 4, Episode 23)
Of course, you need to include an elevator because other than the Goons, no-one has climbed Everest from the inside.
The Goon Show Site - Script - The Internal Mountain (Vintage Goons Series, Episode 9)
I recall a mate back in my school days, and every Monday morning he'd come in and put on all these weird voices, imitating a skit from the Goons, while breaking into fits of laughter.
I'll check out the links at home
On the theme of snow covered mountains, I wonder if at some stage they will increase height of occasional mountains and if generated above a certain block level, will always be covered in snow, or for that matter occasional snow on any structure anywhere above a certain height.
Everest already done
