Is there any way to cheat items in my inventory? I'm only using this for torches in SP so my zombie-proof caves aren't uninhabitable.

That kills the fun of the game.


If your playing on single player, no not that I know of.
On a server there is commands you can use, but that depends if the server your on has them or not.

Is that what you do in this game?

Even the site has a horrible explanation. I just want to know why people love this game so much before I go and drop $14 on a game that makes Sonic 3D Blast look like Metro 2033.
The game isn't about graphics, if you want that go play Metro2033, Crysis etc...

You really have to try it to understand how much fun it is. If you ever liked any sandbox game this is probably the best one out right now.
Don't get me wrong I wouldn't mind better looking one but you can do so much.

Creative rollercoasters, rivers, mountains, pyramids, hidden caves & tunnels, river rapids (just saw it now on the video) and much more...The results are endless.

And the game is only ALPHA! I can't wait to see what other tools we get by the time the game is done.

Are doors indestructible? I'm working on a batch of bricks to start building my house on a small island, but come night fall, mobs sometimes occupy it, but I'd like a way to just go inside real fast and close the door behind me without having to run away or float away in a boat.

EDIT: 2 other questions:

1. How long does it take a sapling to grow into a tree?
2. Is it possible to domesticate animals? If so, how? I could use with a steady supply of meat without having to run all over the place.

Doors aren't indestructible but mobs can't open them.

2. You can make a very large fenced area with torches in it along with a door and they will spawn inside occasionally.

Ok, at least mobs can't open them...just wanted some reassurance that I'm safe without them bashing down the door D:

As for the animals, meh, I didn't expect to be able to capture and "raise" them.

And it seems that saplings take about a day or two to grow into trees.

I like the graphics...the guy didn't get hung up about having amazing graphics, if he did we wouldn't even have a game yet. Plus it makes it 'different'. I like a game that challenges the mind rather than just being a continuous frag-fest (although that has it's place too). The completely randomly generated terrain is great too, as you never know what you will find next.
Download it and try it in offline mode (enter no login details) if you're not sure, but if you like and play more than a few hours worth of it I urge anyone who does this to buy the game.
Paypal is in Swedish because Notch is Swedish I believe.

I could try those commands in SP.

Also, I like the graphics, but the way the textures are screws with my perception. But I can get used to it. They need to be just a bit more detailed.

Guess who I am in Minecraft.

Who else?

I love this game. Of course, like others, I do wish the graphics were better, but by no means does this kill the game for me. I can't wait for different game modes and better modding. If Notch added LUA for single player mods... that would be AWESOME!

I'm going to give it a try. If you play online, is it MMO?

Well, I was able to use Cheat Engine to give myself a lot of blocks, but only ones I've picked up already.

Side-Note: I wonder is VAC is set to detect Cheat Engine...

I plan on picking up this game tonight while it's still half off


I can't find iron for the life of me. I need it to mine the massive diamond stash I found beneath my first base

There's at least four outcrops of it, five diamonds each. Crazy.

Was digging out a tunnel to maneuver across the map. Decided to see where I was and how close I was to the water.
Turns out, I was right beneath it. Needless to say, that tunnel is gone...
Hope it doesn't fill up my base

It must have taken an hour to carve it out, didn't it?

Well I've been working on it for the past three or four days, a couple hours each. I've been making roughly eight or so tunnels throughout the hill I built my base in, as well as a ten dirt-brick high wall surrounding it. It's so awesome, as tons of cows and pigs seem to just spawn right inside it

I dislike the fact that some of the leaves will not go away, and spiders spawn on top and can jump down on me as soon as I leave the front door of my base

I got killed deep in a network of tunnels. Now I need to go down there and get all my stuff back.

joined a freefall server, jumped off the top, spent 20 minutes building a tower to the top, some flying douche bag came and made me fall down again...

anyways it looks kinda fun but i think it lacks content to be so for long.

Add me - coffeejunky

Only thing I'm having issues with finding is diamond...which seems super illusive...found 5 pieces so far...
Added, protip: Diamond is always within 16 blocks of the bedrock/absolute bottom.

Added. There's texture mods for the game, bust out the google if you're looking for stuff along those lines. You can even make your own if you browse to wherever minecraft saves it's textures.
