The guide may be found here . The rest of this thread is redundant, although have fun looking at the architecture. I'm just wondering what people think If I make a guide on using mathematics in Minecraft to make awesome buildings. With maths, advanced curves that flow make for awesome bridges. You can create roofing for houses that isn't bland, even with only one material. And lay out buildings that look chaotic, yet well planned out, flowing with the land.
A house I've been working on for quite some time, and I decided that I needed a bit of help with some of the rooms, so I ask you, fellow minecrafters, what do you think of my humble abode? This is the front of my house. The wooden structure to the right leads to an underground base which is currently unused. This is what you see when you walk through the doorway, my nice little living room. Walk straight from the living room, turn left, and kapow, a dinining room with a bar.
If you are running the Minecraft server on a multi-processor or multi-core system, there are some things you can do with Java's garbage collector settings to help speed things up (perhaps significantly in some cases). For example, lag spikes that were occurring on my server disappeared after I made these adjustments. ricin in particular gave me a heads up about trying a different GC. Without getting into technical details, you can use the following two flags that should increase your server's performance: - XX :+ UseConcMarkSweepGC - XX :+ UseParNewGC
Every time one of my friends gets infdev or people I play creative with switch over (and lose their WOMC flying) they seem to ask the same question: How do you build such giant things in the sky? So you want to build something in the air but that pesky gravity is holding you back. Tired of building and destroying pillar after pillar? Wouldn't it be much easier if you had a good solid ground layer?
Introduction I found that stacking circles with alternating radii wasn't accurate enough for me, especially for large spheres. That's why I've written a script to generate mathematically perfect spheres. (Click to enlarge. Credits to IscopeU for building this.)
These data values refer to the different types of blocks and items. They are used in many, many places in Minecraft. Block IDs are used to define blocks placed in the world and inventory items (including items in chests and items dropped in the world). Item IDs are only valid for items. Each inventory slot has a unique slot number.

I would like to point out that it is spelled copyrighted and not copywrited. Additionally the idea of minecraft could be copied without breaking any laws, what is copyrighted is mainly the name. "Copyright does not protect ideas, only their expression or fixation." This essentially means anyone could copy it as long as they are not actaully stealing code.
LAST UPDATE: DECEMBER 02 2010 @ 05:25 UTC (update summary: catching up with a bunch of Twitter stuff and the blog posts) "If something ever doesn't feel fun, I'll remove it. I believe that I can combine enough fun, accessibility and building blocks for this game to be a huge melting pot of emergent gameplay." - Notch All right people, here's the deal. There's a big problem going on right now in the community where certain "facts" about what Notch has said are passed around without regard for truthfulness. These claims are never sourced, we never get a link to a podcast\interview or twitter\blog post to confirm them.
Rules - Take a world from any post in this thread. You do not need to post "taken" or anything of the sort - this is not a chain world in the usual sense. Try to take one that isn't already extensively chained. - Play on Normal difficulty, without InvEdit or any other outside assistance. - Add something substantial to it - a minecart system, a water elevator, an enormous treehouse - the sky's the limit.
Work in Progress: A castle also. Started it about two weeks ago. I plan on it being a "Museum" of sorts.
Minecarts behave in a unique manner when running alongside one another - they accelerate rapidly. This effect is used to create boosters. A booster consists of a short track with another minecart placed next to the track you want to boost. The two tracks will have one or more squares of contact. When your minecart is next to the other cart, they will both accelerate.
Utopia Contest 2.0 Well, the name says it all, basically. If anyone remembers the original, it was a contest to see who could build the best little town they could with the land they were given. That's not to say that I give you a map, but to make something that works with the landscape.
Description SMP server administration Instructions
I was playing with fire and discovered an odd behavior. I built a single block pillar with a block directly above the fire to prevent myself from actually stepping on the fire. It was my intention to make a "safe" light source. My pillar looked something like this.  However in both cases, the light source was NOT safe. Bumping into the pillar on the NORTH or EAST sides causes damage.
