I always get the urge to play minecraft but everytime I open it and load a new world it just feels wrong. I think they really messed up the terrain generation over the years both above ground and below. All the new biomes just feel out of place and the underground caves are way too expansive(And then they added even bigger caves) I'm really tempted to go through the updates and try and find the ones I originally played on in 9th grade

Oh yeah but the problem with playing an old version is theres so many quality of life changes and updates to other part of minecraft that would suck to play with out

I've been actively playing every update so stuff like this feels fine to me. I think wandering the new caves to find ores is a lot more fun than just digging in a straight line until I find something. Also the terrain on the surface is cool there's been a lot of times I find a cool mountain or something and say "man I wanna make a house there"

I think im being a little unfair cause there is still some cool generations i just dislike a lot of the new biomes maybe my settings are messed up but a lot of the time ill find a cool structure and ill get up on it and ill see like 3 biomes squished together and it looks messy :melting:

yeah idk I've never really seen this happen the current world I'm playing on does have like a plains, sparse jungle, and savannah all close to each other but they're pretty similar biomes so it's not too jarring

i will play again in late summer like i do every year and i will say "wau look at all these new things" and probably my friend will start a server again and then i'll get overwhelmed because everybody else will mine under my house and i will move Far Away and not wanna play anymore


every house i build is the same (but very cool)

here to add that i stopped playing forever when they made me eat to sprint. let me run free. it’s not hurting anyone. just let me go on a jog at will. video games should not prevent this any more than my horrible body does

i like the new additions and think the game is getting better because of them but i find odd how they never found a good way of showing you what each mechanic does i always find myself having to Google shit when i find something new in survival mode

that's true . . . i think i've had an easier time with terraria generally but still had to look up some stuff from time to time . . . most of the time i felt like the progression made sense and i guess the huge item descriptions are usually helpful but ya there were a couple points were i didn't know what i had to do next & had to resort to Search Engining :constipated:

normally when i play minecraft i get so distracted all i can end up doing is just sort of walk around circles in my half finished house. for me i think it can be hard to engage in all the smaller systems they add into the game now, but ive always had the most fun with the game as a social platform, like something you can idly do while u chat, or sometimes build fun little things for each other and goof around in each others houses. so from that perspective the mechanics are really unimportant? as far as im concerned the systems in the game that give players expressivity haven't really changed since the game started, so anything else feels really auxiliary

any ways does anyone else know about how after they banned notch, the admins on tigsource changed his username and pfp to hatsune miku. its pretty funny but i usually forget until i browse an old thread there and see it again

Started up a new world got a decent seed that I like. I'm not rushing or speed running, just enjoying making stuff with stuff I got. Playing like a vegan I'm not gonna make a huge farm with like 100 cows and pigs I'm just gonna get animals I want as pets and eat berries and mushrooms. Not exploring much either I haven't really gone out of this chunk and I don't plan to until I've built a bunch of stuff!
