I still try to play.. just very frustrating, and from what i've seen on the mc forums there are a lot of people with the same problem
If you have a 64-bit system, upgrade to the 64-bit version of java. You have to manually download and install it since the auto-check/upgrader will always give you the 32-bit version.

If you don't, or still have problems, try setting your view distance to 'normal' instead of 'far'.

Re: Minecraft

So I've watched SeaNanner's and X's Let's Play series but I've found a cave system that's further beyond anything I knew existed in Minecraft. It literally has surface openings and reaches bedrock. Using decent spacing I've got over 250 torches in the caves and I'm finding new caverns like every 5 minutes.

It had a HUUUUGGEEEE room at the very bottom with a giant slime in it. It so cool to see one in-game (they're really rare if I understand correctly). There was this other steep, pitch black (even with torches) incline with creeper after creeper falling out of the darkness at me. I ended up giving up on that route because I couldn't see them before they were in my face.

By the way guys, I really recommend playing the game on hard mode. It's a lot more stressful/fun that way.

Re: Minecraft

Also I got really pissed off at skeletons hiding in the shade [I'm based in a forest biome]. I burnt down a tree but started a forest fire that stretches for miles in every direction. Do the tree stumps ever stop burning, or can I just assume that nothing can spawn above ground anymore?

Trees will burn down to a point, then go on burning forever. If you want more trees, just clear out the burned wreckage and replant with saplings. Walla.

Re: Minecraft

What do you guys think about the PvP servers? Capture the flag with crazy redstone traps sounds fun.

Right now it's very raw, but it serves as a alright distraction.
The game that spawned Portals comes to mind. Was nothing more than a final Full Sail project (iirc) and I played the **** out of it. (Nope, it was Narbacular Drop from Digipen.. )

Re: Minecraft

***FIXED
Anyone else have Windows 7 and play within a browser? I keep getting the error "Windows has blocked the software because it can't identify the software". This is after I prompt it to install the activeX or w/e it is.

I tried turning off firewall, no avail.

Overheard at the office today:

"Are you going to watch _______?" (don't remember what it was, irrelevant)
"Nah, I think I'm just going to play Minecraft"
