    Unstable 1.12 Impressions

    I created this thread as I didn't see a discussion area for the new 1.12 packs... If needed, please feel free to move or delete this if it's out of place. I just loaded and spent about a half hour with the new Unstable pack... It's got some interesting additions, such as a new Village...

    MC 1.12 is out, Forgecraft has a first release

    How long will it be until we see packs for 1.12? Who will be the first to harness a flock of Parrots into a flying harness? Enquiring minds wish to be informed. :D

    Possible filter for SPAM?

    I just noticed that SPAM posts, in addition to initially marking themselves as "Problems" :D all have URLs as subject lines. Can that be used as a filter? Any real poster should know to at least identify their subject.

    Lag tip from Direwolf20

    Forgive me for creating a new thread, but if I were to post this to each Lag thread in the forums I'd still be here posting on Easter Sunday :D In today's LP episode DW20 showed a cool tip about lag related to Chunk Updates... In this case caused by EnderIO conduit. The tip is right at the...

    Mojang's Minecon 2016 videos up on Youtube

    Mojang started posting the "nicer" videos of Minecon today, including the opening ceremonies and the panel I'm most interested in, "Extensions and Add-Ons" for the MCPE versions of MC, including Win10, coming in version 16 later this month.

    Microsoft, Minecraft and AI research?

    I just saw this and thought it of interest... Microsoft is apparently using Minecraft for real world AI research. The announcement is that they have decided to Open Source it, along with the AIX platform it runs on (this is a Java mod, apparently, not IBM's version od Unix). The article claims...

    Important FYI! Why you should remove older Java before installing a new version

    This article came out this morning and explains how Java does (or did) not clear older versions of itself off the disk, leaving it there for older security holes to be exploited by malware: http://www.zdnet.com/article/oracle-ordered-to-blitz-users-with-java-security-warnings/ In addition to...

    Do-it-yourself Minecraft computer?

    I just saw this a bit ago... It's a Raspberry Pi 2 computer kit with a 7" screen. They seem to be aiming it towards kids as a teaching tool. I believe the Minecraft is a special version of PE, with the capability to be modded (I even think the source code may be there). Of course it wouldn't...

    New Twist... Competetive Minecraft?

    I just found this and thought it was interesting. http://techcrunch.com/2015/03/02/yc-backed-kickback-offers-an-easy-way-to-play-minecraft-competitively/ My only concern... Most matches are free, but if you want to play against a more "professional" group the matches cost a dollar, and...

    Is Anyone else getting e-mail from accounts that posted spam?

    This morning I got an email from "Julie[some number]" referring to a conversation in the Feed the Beast forums and a link about a workout video. Of course I deleted the mail without even cursoring over the link... I'm a gamer after all, what interest do I of all people have in working out? :D...
