    I thought today (While sitting on the loo playing LBP on PSP), I wonder if anyone has made a Minecraft level in Little Big Planet, so I looked it up and someone made a really good level.




    I was hoping someone would have made an Earthworm Jim level were to launch the cow at the start and when you get to the end the cow lands on you. There is an Earthworm Jim level but it's not very good.

    I think when John Smiths texture pack is updated I'm going to do a little editing of it, I'm going to remove it's sun and moon first, I like the original sun and moon much better they fit in with the world. I might also try changing the break animation over to something else, then the texture pack will be just about perfect.

    There is a total conversion mod called Evil Minecraft coming out, which looks really interesting. Their website is like the Offical site but with an evil take on it. It changes Minecraft to be more sinister, a nightmare version.



    I've not used any mods so far but I think I'll use this one.

    Pretty sweet seed, what did you use to make it, or can't you say?

    I'm trying to make a lift at the moment, it's going ok at the moment, if you want to go up one floor, I'm concerned that my wiring and piston resetting isn't going to work for anything higher than that. Also if I add it into a house, half the house will be wiring for the lift. I've seen good systems that do work for however many floors you like but they are either slow and a bit ugly or fast but not really a true lift.

    Piston doors are really cool, I made my first one today (And destroyed it to test the lift) and I could just sit and watch it up and close for hours.

    Damn it my Minecraft just blue screened again, I thought that had stopped now that it's full screen. Balls.

    I wish I knew what was causing it.

    I started a new world and got a snowy one as well, not as nice as yours though and it's very flat, think I might find a good flat area and make a castle, when that gets covered in snow it should look pretty awesome, I might make the walls super thick and leave any creeper damage there, and also use pistons to do stuff, though I won't have any slime to make the useful pistons which will suck, but getting enough stone to make the castle will take forever anyway, so I should find some by then.

    I want to know how they got to the edge of the world that Minecraft renders, it's supposed to be 4 times the surface of the earth, and I don't think it will take 12 hours to walk that. I suppose they could have used that fast flying mod and maybe edited it to go even faster.

    I surprised really at the quality of everything considering they have so much stuff I would have expected a lot but mostly crap. The Rivendall valley was the best thing, I have no idea how they did that all by hand, it's insane. I doubt they will ever actually get around to RPing on that server. You would need over 1000 people just in the shire to fill all those houses.

    Yeah I know what you mean Vis that guys voice got on my nerves a bit as well. There were a few little things which I might take on board for my world, but for the most part there isn't much I would copy, I mean the grandness of everything is nice but for one person it would be awful to try and get around any of those places, most of the video was them walking to another place.

    Looking forward to seeing that tower Vis, and I wouldn't mind seeing what Nine is up to. I'm going to make a large castle with some fairly grand things in it and I'm going to try and use pistons as much as I can, I'm in a snow world so I'm really looking forward to seeing how it will all look under snow. And I want a swimming pool outside so I'm going to need to keep it heated or it will freeze over. I've got a lot of cobble stone but I want the wall to be 5 blocks thick at least so I'm going to use all of it real quick before I get to the inside. I also want an underground garden, it will have a glass roof and I think that glass will make up the courtyard. I'm going to have trouble finding the things I need and I have to admit I'm tempted to cheat and use the world editor, but so far I'm resisting, I just need so much bloody slime to do what I want to do.

    Since I'm in a snow area, I'm thinking I'll use ice instead of glass as the roof to my underground garden, I just hope it lets enough light in for trees etc to ground, it should do. The only other problem with that is that I'm going to have fire around so it might melt.

    Damn ok ice isn't clear enough to let enough light in for things to grow, actually it's pretty dark. It's a shame because looking up at the bottom of the ice looked amazing, from the top down not so good, I'll have to use ice as a roof for something it looks too good not to be used.

    ARSE!!! Blue screened and my worlds Biome has changed! It's no longer a snow area. I need something that lets me change biomes.

    I was going to upload some screens of my new project but I'm too depressed about it now, I'm going to start backing up my worlds...

    I don't think I'll be using that texture pack but it's pretty cool.

    I just had the GPU fan control thing up and the GPU stays at around 82c-83c which I think is fairly normal (That was after about 10 mins playing).

    Something I missed out which I think is quite important, I don't know how I could have forgotten but when the PC blue screens it freezes, usually at around 70% physical memory dump, 20% and even 0% last time (A few minutes ago). I think it's the really low %'s that cause the biome's to get messed up. I'm guessing it shouldn't be freexing when it's on blue screen.

    Ok so I was keeping an eye on my CPU and RAM usage guage as well as the temps of the GPU.

    I just blue screened again and the last time I looked at those things they were:

    CPU usage 16%

    RAM usage 42%

    GPU 79c - 82c


    There's nothing there I would think thats really causing my PC any trouble. I wish I knew how hot my CPU is but I can't imagine it's that hot.


    EDIT: I just did a clean install, it was one of the suggestions on the forum, but that was for game crashes it didn't say anything about blue screens, worth a try anyway.

    Ok well there has been some change, the CPU usage is 14% -15% and the RAM usage is 37%. Not much difference I grant you but maybe it's the difference between working game and blue screen.

    My game did crash just now but it was just the game not my whole PC (The game did crash rarely in my last install but it was mostly blue screens).

    The message said something like "Java binary stopped working".

    Make sure your Java is 64 bit compatible, the self install downloads are generally 32 bit so go to the java site and select the correct one. Soz if I was a home I could tell you exactly which one and were to go.

    I use Speedfan to keep an eye on all my temps including CPU. Just google it.


    I know a gpu should be fine at 80c but mine hardly gets above 70 and for minecraft it’s low 60’s with all fans whisper quiet.

    I think the 460 is a very cool card, the 480 could heat your house and the 570 is a 480 but a bit cooler. That could be the reason for the heat, I did download the 64 bit version but I'll try again and see if it does anything.

    Update 1.8 looks huge and amazing, it also seems that Minecraft is now being inspired by Terraria, not sure if I like that. Minecraft is also getting some Rougelike (Only heard about this kind of game recently, played things like them though) elements like leveling (No idea how thats going to work in Minecraft) and permadeath. I think those features are all for the new Adventure mode and hopefully not survival. Combat is being changed as well, I believe your hit strength changes based on different factors and you can charge your bow up for a more powerful strike (Or something).


    I decided I want to build a room for fighting monsters, I'm going to edit in monster spawners and put them in rooms with piston doors, the monsters will spawn in the rooms and it's upto the player to decide how bad ass they are, they can open one room at a time or open any number of them at once making it so much harder for them. I might see if I can make a piston switch to raise lights to stop the spawners working to cut down the noise. I'll also build it deep underground and with thick stone walls so that creeper explosions don't do too much damage and obsidian in places so I know how to fix it, I don't want obsidian everywhere because it's more fun when stuff breaks, I may even put a lava pit under the stone so you have to be careful when the ground gets blown up.

    Still pretty depressed about my worlds biomes being messed up, but I'm going to continue to build my world and hope that someone makes something to edit biomes.

    Here are some screens of my still very much unfinished underground garden.

    This is the roof of the garden or more accurately the courtyard of my castle:




    This is a screen I took just after I finished digging out the area under the other screen, I dug all of it by hand, though I used Diamond pickaxes, I had quite a lot of diamond but I did cheat in some more using the editor, I can't remember at what point I did that. I didn't really want to waste time digging for more diamond so that I could come back here and dig more. And yes I was tempted just to used the editor and delete the space, glad I didn't but I'm sick of digging now.




    Here's the latest screen, please ignore the dark area in the back I've just covered that part of the expanded area with cobble stone and I've not yet put in the windows to let light in, I'm not really sure how I want it to be yet. I've put in some landscape features and I've expanded the area, it felt too small. The point of this underground garden is that it's an oasis in the snow covered desert and a place with life in the cold and hard castle which I'll build sometime.

    Very Nice fen, I've not played properly for ages, to busy fiddling with oblivion at the moment it seams to have taken over all my free time.

    So far I've not had any more blue screens! And yeah I know saying that is a sure fire way to get a blue screen next time I play.

    My plan is now not to wait till someone creates a way to change biomes, but to actually dig up and move my castle to a new snow covered world. I'm going to use the editors import function and move the entire thing to a new world. Just need to do some tests before I try and move the real thing to work out how it works.
