Thought I'd start a new topic:

How Did you Find About Minecraft:



It all started two years ago. I told my friend about Pokemon and he was really interested. We used to go to the channel of this guy called Munching Orange on Youtube to watch videos. I once watched the start of one of his Minecraft videos, saw the blocky graphics, thought it was rubbish.

My friend then saw Minecraft videos on Youtube. At the start, he also thought that MC was rubbish but being more patient then me, he kept on watching the videos. He began liking Minecraft and bought it. Then he began telling me about it. I then watched some more videos and started liking Minecraft. Then I bought Minecraft and I do not regret buying it.

Like TD, I found out about Minecraft first by looking up Pokemon videos. I was going through all of Marriland's videos, and saw that he had a few series for this game called Minecraft. Since I like watching Let's Plays of other games, I decided to give these a chance, and I was instantly hooked. A few other people that I follow on Youtube also had various series of Minecraft LPs, and I watched those over and over again.

When I finally decided to check out the game, I tried out Classic first, but it felt empty because I was used to the full game from all the videos that I watched. I thought about waiting until I had less games to play, but couldn't wait for too long without playing the Minecraft that I know, so I got the game and haven't regretted it.

It adds a few more ores to the game that I can find, which helps break up the monotony of mining. I can find something more often than in vanilla.
Some ores mods that have peaked my interest are SimplesOres2 by AleXndrTheGr8st, True Randomite by AUTOMATIC_MAIDEN, and Underground Biomes by Grom PE. I think these are all great mods that help to break up the monotony of mining in Minecraft.

I do like modpacks but only a few of them work for me. My personal favorites were Tekkit Classic and Yogbox, However both of them have stopped being developed. I like Hexxit but I can usually play only a minute of it until my computer lags for the next 1 hour. In other words: I really need a new computer.
Mo' Creatures is also one of my favorite mods. I've been playing it since the 1.2.5 era of Minecraft. It's grow so much since then, and has even inspired aspects in the Vanilla Minecraft.

It's a shame that Tekkit Classic hasn't been updated. Although, I think Tekkit Lite has kind of taken over for it, since the new version of Tekkit was released, right? At least in the sense of people who want the classic feel, but don't want to be stuck in 1.2.5, I guess.

Favourite Block/Item: Favourite block would probably be brick block/spruce planks, as both together make a great looking house. Item... Ender pearls are pretty sweet. :]
Favorite Mob: Wolves are favourite passive mob (Well, if you wanna call them passive...), while the Ender Dragon is my favourite aggressive mob.

Usually servers have commands such as "/home" and "/spawn" to make travelling to and from specific locations easier. Most servers only allow one home -- or base -- per user. Raiding is where no one's base is safe. All users can raid everyone else's bases without punishment. It adds a higher difficulty to Hard mode, for not only do you have environmental hazards and mobs against you, but other players as well.

Things get even more interesting when you team up with others. You gain and lose allies (sometimes at the cost of materials), but the teammates who stick it out for the long haul end up your closest friends on the server. The trust and communal aspects of this mode are great, and often overlooked.
Ah, is it's a type of PvP/griefing server?


How Did you Find About Minecraft:
Actually, I'm fairly sure that it was my two oldest nephews that got my hooked on it back in early to mid 2012. Wow, it feels like I've been playing for longer than just a couple years...

I remember that I first tried out the Classic version for free on the Minecraft website, which I don't think is available anymore.
Soon after, I was playing 1.2.5 with my nephew's account for a little while. I eventually bought my own account.
I only played on single player for a little while, I was afraid of having to go against other players, in addition to having to worry about hostile mobs. XD
But I gradually gained more experience and confidence with the game and I'm where I am now.
I love to mod because I find Vanilla a bit boring, I'm a moderator on a multiplayer server, and now I'm a guide for my third and youngest nephew while he plays the game.
Although, he's starting to not really need my help as much anymore.

Favorite Block/Item: In Vanilla Minecraft, TNT. When it comes to mods, I have a few: Builder's Wand from Extra Utilities, the Hammer from Tinker's Contruct, and Minium (?) Stone from Equivalent Exchange (craving for a 1.6.4 stable update).
Favorite Mob: Enderman

How did I find about Minecraft? YouTube. A video by the Yogscast was strangely recommended for me. And from there, I got into it and till now, my favourite 'game'.

Welcome to the Minecraft fan club, Thatcher!
Youtube has become a pretty big part of the worldwide media.
It has done wonders for the spread of the Minecraft fandom.

Anyone feel like playing some Minecraft Hunger Games? Or any other MC server games, I'm pretty bored and they're more fun in a group! I usually use Mineplex or Hive but if anyone has better suggestions then I'm happy to try them. :D

Welcome to the PC Minecraft fan club, OtakuVox!

You're referring to the gold block, when you say butter, correct?

I'm sorry...Is that still going on?
I only frequent a few forum sections on PC.
What do you mean by host? Like game show host?

I know a nice, semi-vanilla server for playing MC Hunger Games and other MC mini-games.


Do you guys think we should have a section on the first post of the club for featured servers?
I have a couple that I frequent that I'd like to share with others.

Also, would any of you be interested in a Mod of the Week/Month type of section?
I was thinking it could either be a feature of videos already on Youtube, or maybe we could have someone from the club make mod spotlight videos.

And maybe a monthly/quarterly creative-mode building competition?

Glad you liked my Mod . But the updates got the best of me and I am not skilled enough at coding to update it. XD

Oh wow! This is cool to see a mod creator here! Thanks for showing up! Shame about the updates holding the More Ores mod back.

Unfortunately, the club hasn't received a post in over a month, and the club owner hasn't been seen in over a month. I'll close this current thread, but if anyone wants to remake a new Minecraft club, feel free!
