Minecrack

Everyone's coocoo for Minecraft these days it seems. Loads of vids on youtube showing amasing cretions, a couple of which I'll post at the bottom of this blog entry.

Played it myself, bought it a couple of months ago and I have to say, it's a lot of fun. Mining stuff, crafting stuff, creating great buildings, it's a ll a lot of fun. It tickles that part of my brain that likes creating things rather than just shooting aliens all day - the same part that made me like the Sim City games (except the last one, of course).

So go buy it, it's 50% off! Definitely worth the money. Minecraft.net.


Here's a couple of vids showing some impressive feats in MC.

A 1:1 model of a Star Trek ship

  5. That 16 bit computer just amazes me! I am doing engineering at the moment, and it takes more than a bit of thought to design that kind of stuff, let along reproduce it in minecraft!
