    Yeah, don't worry about that, I think I mentioned in the other thread that this demo wasn't really meant to go public so I really didn't make any effort on that side of things. Controls will change and they will become better, but that's really not my priority right now.
     
  2. Remember, you talked about emulators.
     
  3. Nobody is going to play Minecraft DS in an emulator as opposed to playing the regular Minecraft.

    Wow. I'm amazed. As a simple work-in-progress, this is amazing. I haven't seen such hard work put into a homebrew game in a while... keep it up.
     
  5. Doesn't matter.
    You said that not many people could play that one since only those with an emulator or a flashcart could play it.
    I pointed out that pretty much everyone who had access to a computer that can run Minecraft can run a DS emulator.

    It's fun, creative, and addictive.

    Play it. We can't explain it to you, you have to try it.

    This has me interested. I was never able to really get into it on my computer, but maybe on my DS, I can show some initiative in getting something done. Do you have any idea what height limitations may exist (ie: how many blocks tall)? Just curious as to how high one may build. For the time I enjoyed Minecraft on my computer, I had fun building big 'ol, old style castles.

    IIRC, whatever limits there were, it was ridiculously high. I remember seeing a Youtube vid of someone making a 1:1 copy of the Starship Enterprise. The disc-shaped bow of the ship was high into the clouds.

    Imagine Xenoblade's distant colossal figure in the background of the cover art. It was that far, that high.
     
  12. Well, it is not possible to build stuff above the clouds since you get stuck when you reach cloud level.
    A map editor was probably used.

    He's talking about Classic, where it's possible to build out of the map.

    First off, /gasm.
    Secondly, my blocks have no texture. That normal?

    I find it difficult to place blocks. You can only place blocks on top of other blocks, you can't place them like the original Minecraft. I hope this gets fixed in future updates. YES I KNOW THIS IS AN ALPHA DEMO!

    Some other things that should be fixed:
    Infinite Jumping
    Jumping is 3 blocks high, it should be 1 block high.
    Terrain Generator, I have seen tree blocks spawn out of the map where approaching them crashes the game.

    Features that should be added:
    Touch Screen Interface that contains inventory/block selector, jump button, place/use button.
    L and R buttons should be USE/ATTACK/REMOVE BLOCK
    A Y LEFT and RIGHT should be strife Left/Right
    X B UP and DOWN should be move forward backward.

    Features that would be nice to have
    Online Multiplayer (Please?)
    Ability to import/export maps MCDS maps to/from Minecraft?

    I hope this just becomes to the point of being a perfect copy of Creative Mode. I would love to spend hours on end on creating Minecraft worlds and massive structures on the go.

    Keep up the good work dude, don't let the n00bs pressure you!
     
  16. I was talking about classic too.
    I was not able to build anything over cloud level.

    So far maps are limited to being 64 blocks high. I know it may not sound like much, but I do think it's pretty good already. In the current state of things (ie. using my engine), making taller maps would only be possible with a DSi version I think.

    Freakin' awesome! Smealum, if you need a dedicated Minecraft fan and NDS tester, let me know!

    Hope you will consider the Survival mode, too.
