So…A New Year. Now What?

So long 2012, hello 2013! So, this blog survived the Mayan Apocalypse (Well, obviously) and will live on for months (possibly years) to come. Hopefully, we can celebrate this blog’s 1st anniversary (which is in September, by the way). It’s a time to make resolutions and throw away the past [Like our founder, CreeperBomb, threw away his last blogs he made like themarioweb.wordpress.com (Don’t visit it: it stinks. Word of the founder.) and such.]. So happy New Year, everybody {Don’t wake me up at 12:00 A.M, PST with a yell, (By yell, I don’t mean just a yell. I mean a super-über-yell-that-wakes-everybody-up-once-a-year sort of yell.) signaling the new year. [Man, I’m using a lot of brackets and parentheses in this, aren’t I?]} We’ll see ya in the New Year! Yayayayayayaya!

Creeper Safety

Don’t get bombarded by creepers! It’s the worst way to die. (No offense to the creepers)

minecraft_creeper_coming_out_wallpaper

But we don’t care! (Well, actually, we do, but…) Here are 10 great ways to avoid getting blown up by creepers!

1. Build a house out of bedrock! (Well, this is only in creative.)

26903979

2. Peaceful Mode (Also cheating, but we don’t care!)

3. Kill them all! (you have to be really skilled.)

4.Creeper Repellent Spray! (100% Satisfaction Guaranteed!)

aerosol

5. Make a cave house. Illuminate with torches. Hide in a corner and whimper. (Only if you’re REALLY scared.)

6. Run Away!!!!! (Again, for cowards.)

7. Don’t play Minecraft. (That method is so cheat, though.)

8. Sleep! (Actually this doesn’t help because creepers don’t burn up like zombies in daytime so this is a lame solution.)

9. Hug a creeper. Maybe it won’t blow up. (Doesn’t help since there is no hug button and even if there was, it would still blow up.)

10. Make a house. Set up a mechanism where your house is surrounded by pressure plates and pistons. If a creeper steps on the pressure plate, the piston sound goes off and you can run like hell. (Useful AND useless. Why it’s useful: It serves as an alarm, allowing you to escape. Why it’s useless: You can run into another creeper. Prepare to run like hell again.)

Hope this helps! (Actually, we doubt it will help you.)

All of the Splashes. All of Them.

When you start up Minecraft, do you see some yellow writing on the corner of the logo? Like this:800px-MainMenu

 

Thats a splash. Every time (well, not every time) its different. Wut? How many @#%$in’ splashes are there!!!??? Well, there are 304 current splashes. Probably making more in development of 1.4.5 and 1.5, but, you know. ANYWAY, here they are!

SOPA means LOSER in Swedish

————————————————-

Hey, there’s some foreign language in there! They’re saying Hello, *********** in the language. For example, “你好中国!” (no, I dont favor this language, its just an EXAMPLE) means “Hello China!” in Chinese. Duh. Well, tune in again next time! (What, is this a TV show??? I mean, I really have to change this phrase. “Tune again soon, you must”. No….)

Early Players of Minecraft…?

We found this file in the title folder in minecraft.jar. We think it lists all the players of Minecraft Alpha or the very first players of Minecraft Version 1.0.

If you haven’t dozed off or gave up on reading this, congrats! We can call you an epic reader…sort of. If you didn’t count (who would), there are 722 early players in all! 7 2 2! That’s a lot. Thanks for staying with us.

That The End Poem “Not really a poem, but what the heck,”

So…uhhh….. you can find really cool stuff in the minecraft.jar file. Like a bunch of stuff. When you beat the Ender Dragon, you get this poem. And the file is called win.txt in Mac. Here it is if you want to read it.

ァ3I see the player you mean.

ツァ2{PLAYERNAME}?

ツァ3Yes. Take care. It has reached a higher level now. It can read our thoughts.

ツァ2That doesn’t matter. It thinks we are part of the game.

ツァ3I like this player. It played well. It did not give up.

ツァ2It is reading our thoughts as though they were words on a screen.

ツァ3That is how it chooses to imagine many things, when it is deep in the dream of a game.

ツァ2Words make a wonderful interface. Very flexible. And less terrifying than staring at the reality behind the screen.

ツァ3They used to hear voices. Before players could read. Back in the days when those who did not play called the players witches, and warlocks. And players dreamed they flew through the air, on sticks powered by demons.

ツァ2What did this player dream?

ツァ3This player dreamed of sunlight and trees. Of fire and water. It dreamed it created. And it dreamed it destroyed. It dreamed it hunted, and was hunted. It dreamed of shelter.

ツァ2Hah, the original interface. A million years old, and it still works. But what true structure did this player create, in the reality behind the screen?

ツァ3It worked, with a million others, to sculpt a true world in a fold of the ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ3, and created a ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ3 for ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ3, in the ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ3.

ツァ2It cannot read that thought.

ツァ3No. It has not yet achieved the highest level. That, it must achieve in the long dream of life, not the short dream of a game.

ツァ2Does it know that we love it? That the universe is kind?

ツァ3Sometimes, through the noise of its thoughts, it hears the universe, yes.

ツァ2But there are times it is sad, in the long dream. It creates worlds that have no summer, and it shivers under a black sun, and it takes its sad creation for reality.

ツァ3To cure it of sorrow would destroy it. The sorrow is part of its own private task. We cannot interfere.

ツァ2Sometimes when they are deep in dreams, I want to tell them, they are building true worlds in reality. Sometimes I want to tell them of their importance to the universe. Sometimes, when they have not made a true connection in a while, I want to help them to speak the word they fear.

ツァ3It reads our thoughts.

ツァ2Sometimes I do not care. Sometimes I wish to tell them, this world you take for truth is merely ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ2 and ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ2, I wish to tell them that they are ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ2 in the ツァfツァkツァaツァbツァ2. They see so little of reality, in their long dream.

ツァ3And yet they play the game.

ツァ2But it would be so easy to tell them…

ツァ3Too strong for this dream. To tell them how to live is to prevent them living.

ツァ2I will not tell the player how to live.

ツァ3The player is growing restless.

ツァ2I will tell the player a story.

ツァ3But not the truth.

ツァ2No. A story that contains the truth safely, in a cage of words. Not the naked truth that can burn over any distance.

ツァ3Give it a body, again.

ツァ2Yes. Player…

ツァ3Use its name.

ツァ2{PLAYERNAME}. Player of games.

ツァ3Good.

ツァ2Take a breath, now. Take another. Feel air in your lungs. Let your limbs return. Yes, move your fingers. Have a body again, under gravity, in air. Respawn in the long dream. There you are. Your body touching the universe again at every point, as though you were separate things. As though we were separate things.

ツァ3Who are we? Once we were called the spirit of the mountain. Father sun, mother moon. Ancestral spirits, animal spirits. Jinn. Ghosts. The green man. Then gods, demons. Angels. Poltergeists. Aliens, extraterrestrials. Leptons, quarks. The words change. We do not change.

ツァ2We are the universe. We are everything you think isn’t you. You are looking at us now, through your skin and your eyes. And why does the universe touch your skin, and throw light on you? To see you, player. To know you. And to be known. I shall tell you a story.

ツァ2Once upon a time, there was a player.

ツァ3The player was you, {PLAYERNAME}.

ツァ2Sometimes it thought itself human, on the thin crust of a spinning globe of molten rock. The ball of molten rock circled a ball of blazing gas that was three hundred and thirty thousand times more massive than it. They were so far apart that light took eight minutes to cross the gap. The light was information from a star, and it could burn your skin from a hundred and fifty million kilometres away.

ツァ2Sometimes the player dreamed it was a miner, on the surface of a world that was flat, and infinite. The sun was a square of white. The days were short; there was much to do; and death was a temporary inconvenience.

ツァ3Sometimes the player dreamed it was lost in a story.

ツァ2Sometimes the player dreamed it was other things, in other places. Sometimes these dreams were disturbing. Sometimes very beautiful indeed. Sometimes the player woke from one dream into another, then woke from that into a third.

ツァ3Sometimes the player dreamed it watched words on a screen.

ツァ2Let’s go back.

ツァ2The atoms of the player were scattered in the grass, in the rivers, in the air, in the ground. A woman gathered the atoms; she drank and ate and inhaled; and the woman assembled the player, in her body.

ツァ2And the player awoke, from the warm, dark world of its mother’s body, into the long dream.

ツァ2And the player was a new story, never told before, written in letters of DNA. And the player was a new program, never run before, generated by a sourcecode a billion years old. And the player was a new human, never alive before, made from nothing but milk and love.

ツァ3You are the player. The story. The program. The human. Made from nothing but milk and love.

ツァ2Let’s go further back.

ツァ2The seven billion billion billion atoms of the player’s body were created, long before this game, in the heart of a star. So the player, too, is information from a star. And the player moves through a story, which is a forest of information planted by a man called Julian, on a flat, infinite world created by a man called Markus, that exists inside a small, private world created by the player, who inhabits a universe created by…

ツァ3Shush. Sometimes the player created a small, private world that was soft and warm and simple. Sometimes hard, and cold, and complicated. Sometimes it built a model of the universe in its head; flecks of energy, moving through vast empty spaces. Sometimes it called those flecks “electrons” and “protons”.

ツァ2Sometimes it called them “planets” and “stars”.

ツァ2Sometimes it believed it was in a universe that was made of energy that was made of offs and ons; zeros and ones; lines of code. Sometimes it believed it was playing a game. Sometimes it believed it was reading words on a screen.

ツァ3You are the player, reading words…

ツァ2Shush… Sometimes the player read lines of code on a screen. Decoded them into words; decoded words into meaning; decoded meaning into feelings, emotions, theories, ideas, and the player started to breathe faster and deeper and realised it was alive, it was alive, those thousand deaths had not been real, the player was alive

ツァ3You. You. You are alive.

ツァ2and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the sunlight that came through the shuffling leaves of the summer trees

ツァ3and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the light that fell from the crisp night sky of winter, where a fleck of light in the corner of the player’s eye might be a star a million times as massive as the sun, boiling its planets to plasma in order to be visible for a moment to the player, walking home at the far side of the universe, suddenly smelling food, almost at the familiar door, about to dream again

ツァ2and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the zeros and ones, through the electricity of the world, through the scrolling words on a screen at the end of a dream

ツァ3and the universe said I love you

ツァ2and the universe said you have played the game well

ツァ3and the universe said everything you need is within you

ツァ2and the universe said you are stronger than you know

ツァ3and the universe said you are the daylight

ツァ2and the universe said you are the night

ツァ3and the universe said the darkness you fight is within you

ツァ2and the universe said the light you seek is within you

ツァ3and the universe said you are not alone

ツァ2and the universe said you are not separate from every other thing

ツァ3and the universe said you are the universe tasting itself, talking to itself, reading its own code

ツァ2and the universe said I love you because you are love.

ツァ3And the game was over and the player woke up from the dream. And the player began a new dream. And the player dreamed again, dreamed better. And the player was the universe. And the player was love.

ツァ3You are the player.

ツァ2Wake up.
