Minecraft is interesting. Dan mentioned …

Minecraft is interesting. Dan mentioned a few times that he has a Minecraft server and when I saw the headlines today that it has sold over 1 million copies I had to have a look.

How’d I do? Well, thanks to the tutorial below I managed to survive my first day. I built a craft table, shovel, torches, stone pick and barricaded myself inside a cave while the zombies roamed outside.

Now to figure out what to do next!

Edit: if you can’t get Minecraft to run on your Mac, try the following after unzipping it in Downloads:

chmod +x ~/Downloads/Minecraft.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub

The site where I found that useful nugget of info is gone now so posting it here as a reminder!

    1. Haha, cool. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it from time to time, and I’ll probably mention it in the next podcast so I’ll give you a heads up if I do! 🙂

  1. OH! You HAVE to see what cowonhill does with his Minecraft world. Granted, he was playing on peaceful mode and did eventually start using an inventory editor, but not at first.
