Ha ha, this is awesome.

For those that don't know today is the first day of Minecraft being a Real Game and not a beta. I was tempted to put together a megapost of all the previously unseen super-cool minecraft videos, songs, comics, etc, but there are just too many. So I just made fun of Victoria Jackson.

Craft on brothers!
Have they actually released a non-beta version yet? I'm not seeing anything on the web site about it, or in the wiki, or Notch's twitter feed.

Not. Out. Yet. *twitches, paces*

Whelk, don't miss the fact that we have a small Minecraft-related event starting tomorrow...

I've heard the official game update will happen during Notch's presentation at Minecon tonight, which is going to be really late, east coast time... dammit.

Aaaaand. . . is down. Maybe they're getting ready? By fucking up my plans to procrastinate the stuff I really should be doing some more?

Livestream starts in two minutes! Looks like the release is happening this afternoon, BP, not late tonight.

Oh YAY!! I was afraid it'd be this evening, Nevada time!

WHOO! My game just updated to Minecraft 1.0.0! :)

Looks like I picked a bad day to continue to have stopped Minecraft.

I can't get mine to update! It keeps giving me a long error message that I think has something to do with my jar files - I can't see the whole thing, damnit, but I think perhaps it's been denied access? HALP!

Probably just overwhelmed servers, MGL... 4 million people are trying to update all at once, after all. :)
posted by BoringPostcards 18 November | 17:36
No, it's specific to me, I think. The part of the error message I can read says error occurred (4) c:documents and settings\felicity\application data\minecraft.bin\minecraft.jar(access is and then I can't read anymore and there's no way to scroll horizontally to see the whole damn error message. ARGH. I looked at my .jar files and they're right there, updated on 9/23 when I probably should never have downloaded the 1.9 prerelease.

YAY deleting the .jar files worked & I was able to upgrade thanks BP for your tweet wheeeee!

Whee, 1.0 and my paintings look right again! Tell me of your homeworld, Usul bunnies.

It's kinda dark, but here's "me" in front of my island home. The thing on the far right is a portal, the next thing over is a bridge, and the giant mushroom in the distance is my "marker" so I can get back here after venturing off in search of caves to explore.

Wow sysinfo, that's a pretty sprawling house. I have a feeling I didn't see all of it. I like the escape cart.

The first step is a doozy, though. I fell to my death on load.

I only played on the mefightclub server.. I liked this giant dark room I dug out:

It's a bit of a drop, fleacircus - wanted to see if anyone would actually load it up. The doggy is there as a reward, though. :) My eventual goal is to hollow out the entire mountain into rooms, down to the adminium.

That's... a big room. I need to get back on mefightclub.

the hollowing out compulsion!
posted by fleacircus 19 November | 02:44
fleacircus, that giant room is beautiful!

Omicron City, where I live in the sandstone house on the left there. On the right is the Mushroom Hut, mushroom soup while you wait, just come up to the counter. I actually have three towns on that planet and a train that runs between all three of them - from Omicron City to Swampiana to Lakeland. At the moment I'm expanding Omicron City - it needs more streets, more buildings, more city stuff.

Here are a whole bunch of my Minecraft pictures. Yes I clearly have too much time on my hands. ;-)

MGL, I just built my first working train, between two far-distant homes. Eventually I need to start exploring the area around my new outpost, but right now I just keep riding the train back and forth, back and forth...

You guys have such neat stuff. It'd be neat to have a metachat multiplayer server that was for low-key bunnies.

Bunny! OMG! || Everybody needs a hug
