Minecraft!

What is Minecraft? From the Minecraft Wiki:

Minecraft is a sandbox construction game, inspired by Infiniminer, Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper, created by Markus Persson, the founder of Mojang AB. The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three-dimensional environment. The player takes an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork across the various multiplayer servers in multiple game modes.
Minecraft is available to players for €19.95. Singleplayer and multiplayer, when purchased, can be played in the user's web browser, or using the downloadable client. Minecraft Classic is available to play for free. Minecraft development started around the 10th of May 2009, and pre-orders for the full game started being accepted on the 13th of June 2009. Minecraft's official release date was the 18th of November 2011. On the 5th of May 2012, Minecraft was released for the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live Arcade (for 1600 points, about $20), where it soon shattered all previous sales records.

Server:
Most People here on the CAD forums play on the server graciously hosted and maintained by Shawn Adams (AKA: khyron42 unless he changes his name)

Server Address (as of 8 November 2012):
cad-minecraft.dyndns.org

Opening (or clicking) the server address takes you to the server webpage with live server maps, a small breakdown of the the commands available, and live player information.



Kicking off the new Minecraft thread, I am... annoyed to say my castle wall is actually only about 1/4 totally done. Never try to wall-in an area the size of Texas unless you have *a lot* of free time.

Also it appears an update at some point busted the piston timing, many of the piston clocks are off or totally broken (sadface) . iamcooler has been doing his best to repair the damaged wiring and circuits so hopefully everything will go back to working soon, we just have to find new ways to do some circuits.

I actually only just bought this game the other day. Still playing vanilla and singleplayer, no mods. It has me wishing I could take time off work >.>

I really should get back into Minecraft. It's been too long...

But so many things to do!

I think the update screwed all redstone stuff. It killed the Fur Elise thing I built. Now it's just the same tone on two different beats on four different instruments. Next time I have a few hours to burn I have to fix it.

haha yeah redstone changes have muddled with a few things. Currently working on a new 1tick clock design that I can use for my old counter.

Thats weird that the note block things have changed, last time I tried your Fur Elise thing it was working... Oh well more fun I guess.

I am at about the 50% point with my server development, trying to make an actual RPG with quests, classes etc. Once it's all completed I'll come and grab all you guys for feedback :tongue:

Ahh man, just feel like I should just post letting you guys know I'm still alive :D

Sadly I can't bring myself to play minecraft anymore without the Better Than Wolves mod installed, or I would definitely join you all again :)

It's so strange having a thread for minecraft not be 200 pages long!

The server was down for part of this evening because I was a fool; I left a streaming TV java thing on pause for a few hours and when I came back the whole machine was frozen up. It's back online but might be a little laggy as some startup sequences finish.

I finally updated the mumble server setup to list Killjoy's Vent server instead.

Icalasari, we can definitely list more than one server in the OP, but we should probably describe differences between the two to help people know which will interest them!

Are there some European players on the server? I don't want to play alone when I come for a visit ;)

(At the moment I'm stuck without a gaming computer in England... so I won't be able to play until December)

It's a fairly low-population server anyway, there's rarely even two people on it at the same time. It's more of a "single player with cool neighbors also building stuff" experience.

Icalasari, what's the population like on your server? I did want to try it out sometime, but couldn't remember how to get to it!

I keep telling myself I need to get back on Minecraft and continue building but then WoW comes and sucks me back in or I fear that I might lose track of time and never stop building.

Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.

You know, now that I have a baby to look after, I think I'll be playing Minecraft a bit more again! Apart from creepers and TNT, it isn't exactly the type of a game that will scare her.

Congratulations on the baby! I'll have one of my own to watch after starting in February. Should make for difficult gaming times.

I still can't connect to the CAD server but I felt like building something today so I put together the first part of a calculator I want to build.

All it actually does is show a digit from 0 to 9 but because each image is on a seperate line I should be able to make good use of them with a calculator.

What I need to do now is get a world editor and copy and paste a mirror of it next to itself (if that's possible) so I can have a 2 digit number from 0 to 99.

Please note that any statement I make automatically acknowledges exceptions, not all X are Y.

 

Please assume that I agree with you that not all X are Y.

 

Thank you.

Happy to see there is another redstone calculator maker here :P I Thought I would share my first design (made a while ago as I
have been to busy with school to make a new one lately).

I will be using image links to imgur here to avoid having large image problems.

Here is an overall picture of the calculator. The numbers correspond with the different parts of the calculator.

http://imgur.com/Pf89d

1. This part is the control pannel and the yellow wiring on the back is converting the decimal numbers imputed to binary.

2. These are the memory registers for the calculator. At the moment there are only two four bit registers and as such the calculator can only calculate up to 15 (and only subtract down to zero because I'm clueless on how to handle negative numbers).

closeup of memory registers

http://imgur.com/a/5nJs1#2

3. This is the device I use to handle which register the user will be inputing the numbers into.

4. This is where the magic happens! It is 2 XOR (exclusive or) full adders stacked on top of each other. The bottom is a plain
full adder for addition and the top has a one's complement inversion bit for subtraction.

5. This is the wiring that converts the adder/subtractor's output back into decimal.

6. This is the wiring that converts decimal numbers into numbers on the seven segment display.

closeup of module

http://imgur.com/a/5nJs1#6

7. This is just a basic seven segment display for the 1's place and just a 2 segment for the 10's place seeing as it will never go higher than 1.
