In Response To: Re: Oil Fire #17 (jonny)

: I've only just started playing Minecraft myself and haven't used any mods
: yet, so I'm probably missing something -- but couldn't you have just built
: a pillar and platform over the spout and then placed water to create a
: waterfall to put out the fire? Or does flowing water have some interaction
: with oil like it does with lava?

Nah, we tried that with some of the underground oil fires we had. The exposed planes of oil that are burning stop burning when water contacts them, but the adjacent blocks are still on fire, so when you remove the water, it just goes back to burning. Either pumping the oil or placing dirt or other blocks to replace it seems to work better.

: Anyway, I'm really enjoying the series... it's what inspired me to start
: playing MC. I knew the addiction level would be high, but geez, I had no
: idea. I've actually abandoned (temporarily) my Marathon playing and
: mapmaking. The ability to build things in Minecraft that I can't build in
: Marathon is a big part of that, but I think once the initial fascination
: wears off I'll be able to allocate some time to both.

Glad you're enjoying it! It surprised me, too. I picked it up one day on the Xbox 360 because I was bored and ended up getting hooked.

: ----

: You said in a recent episode that you wouldn't be building the Marathon to
: scale. Why the hell not?

Well right now I still intend to try and stay in survival mode as long as possible, and I've no idea exactly how many blocks we'd need to build it to scale.

The other reason is that if we keep it under 2000 blocks total, which is really not that big, we can make it in game as a flyable object. I think we'll probably build as big a flyable object as we can an appropriate distance from the surface so it looks large, and then fly it away to end the series.

: First, I'm wondering if Deimos will already exist with Galacticraft (which it
: should if Mars exists).

Mars does exist but I don't think Deimos does as anything other than a blur on a skybox.

If it does, then it's simply a matter of mining
: out the areas you need to recreate the bits of the Marathon you want to
: show off. With any luck the lava will already be in place for those levels
: Perseus hates so much!

For interiors I think we'd probably start with a blank world and start doing things in creative mode-- or maybe even move to a separate game like StarMade, which is similar to Minecraft but made for building spaceships.
