Re: How do I deal with caves?

there's a rope mode somewhere with an extendable rope roll.
when you dig into a cave from above, you can drop down the rope and climb down and back up, no need to build stairs.

as for the continued exploration, if you don't like going sideways too much, just continue digging downwards.

registering was more difficult than expected...
even when i bashed some random keys on the keyboard it said that this username is already taken.
but after about half an hour of searching for names, i finally made it.

Re: What makes a mob good?

since things like invisibility potions exist, mobs shouldn't know where the player is at all times. they shouldn't be able to see through walls either. if possible, they should have the same vision field as the player, so you can sneak away or surprise attack when they turn their back to you. when t...

Re: building a game from scratch

new flash: it seems to be impossible to figure out the proper sizes of the hotbar textures, so i'm forced to give up on those for now. going back to my biome map, i noticed some inconsistencies regarding the placement of living ocean and dead ocean (fossil desert). after finally understanding shadmo...

Re: size of hotbar background images

Re: Questions about the world's position in the universe

i named my (still forever in development) game "Almagest" because the earth is in the centre of the star sphere.
the sun and moon are celestial spheres orbiting the earth.
with this, everything makes perfect sense :P

Re: size of hotbar background images

i found old MTG hotbar textures somewhere. upon very close examination of those and the current MTG textures, i discovered that the slot size is 64x. the gap between slots is 10 pixels and the whole bar is framed by 7 pixels. the overlay frame for selected slots has a 10 pixel border. i need to make...

Re: hello world and how to fly?

in order to make use of fly mode, the player requires the 'fly' privilegue.
in singleplayer you can get this by typing " /grant singleplayer fly ".
or you can just do " /grant singleplayer all " to get everything at once.

Re: [Mod] lib_ecology [lib_ecology][git]

for some reason your mods create massive shadows underwater. from above, this makes water look mostly opaque even when it is set to 'transparent', and rivers get very ugly textures because of the shadow. the worst view is underwater. kelp is just black, the floor is black, terrain is mostly invisibl...
