HOW TO GET A SKIN!!!

Posted: July 25, 2012 by AlexBrick in Uncategorized

Hello everyone! I’m sorry for not posting in a while for I have been very busy killing people on the Minecraft server, Vindicraft! (This server is in the servers post.)

Today I’m going to be talking about getting a skin for Minecraft! You don’t like the lame, old and boring Steve skin which makes you look like a total noob? Well guess what? Nobody does! Here is a step by step guide for getting a skin:

1. Go on a website that supplies skins, e.g The Skindex.

2. Then find a skin you want, click on it and look at the buttons on the side.

3. They basically tell you what the button will do, but the one you want to click is the “Upload to Minecraft” button.

4. After clicking on it a window will open on the Minecraft website, it will ask you to log in if you aren’t already and may pull up a page saying “change skin”. If not, then log in if not already, close the page, and then just click the “Upload to Minecraft” button again and it should come up with the “change skin” page.

5. MAKE SURE that you are not online Minecraft or on the home page at the time of changing your skin or else it will take a very long time for the skin to change!

You can also make a skin by yourself but that will be in a later tutorial!

Go get those skins! 😀

SERVERS!

Posted: July 20, 2012 by AlexBrick in Minecraft

Hello everyone, today I am going to tell you about the basics of multiplayer mode! Servers! When you first get onto Minecraft it’ll say “Singleplayer” and “Multiplayer”, click on “Multiplayer”. Then you will have “Join server”, “Direct connect”, “Add server” and so on… Click on “Add server”. This will open up a page with two bars, in the top one you put the title that you want it to be named and in the bottom put the real server address (IP). On this post I will be sharing some of my favorite server IPs:

Vindicraft, play.vindicraft.com:25565 – This server is one of the first I joined and it is growing by the second. One of the best things about it is it has the heros plugin (a plugin is like a mod but for a server, affecting everyone on the server) this give a whole new element to the game creating the weakest classes and the best classes. This server also has many other commonly known plugins such as factions.

Great Light Desert, gldesert.com – It’s a huge desert! On this server you have to try and survive to get trees and food in the scorching desert while having crazy people with diamond armor chase after you! This server has an excellent plugin called *More diamonds!!!* This plugin does exactly what it says IT GIVES YOU MORE DIAMONDS!!! You basically find them at any level in the ground and in big deposits. This server does not have the heros plugin, sadly, but it has some common ones like towny etc.

RedvsBlue, redvsblue.servegame.com (it is serve not server!) – TOTAL PVP (player vs player)!!! Two teams, Red and Blue it is a constant battle between who get the fortresses and also a sweat-breaking brawl between who can keep the best gear. This is my personal favorite server! (I’m on red team!)

INFECTED!!! s1.mcinfected.net – This is just like that classic MW3 zombie infection where a couple people are infected in the beginning and then they spread the disease until everyone is infected! Try and stay alive for the longest on some of the best Call Of Duty maps! You can even rank up and start with better gear in the next game.

The Right Server, mc.therightguy.info. – It’s a small community server with active ops and a wonderful community. It’s almost entirely grief free and is normal survival server. There are basic plugins such as teleporting and world guard and chestshop but is otherwise completely vanilla (mod free).

On all these servers if you do join them please look out for us, say “hi bagdaddyrun, nice blog” or something like that! Our In Game Names (IGN) are:

Flamingyeti=bagdaddyrun

thegamergod=lambkebab

creepycreeper=wprout

ArMeDnCrAzY=ArMeDnCrAzY (sooooo annoying to type!)

Thanks for reading this and go get on those servers!

FLAMING YETI’S NOOB TIPS!

Posted: July 20, 2012 by AlexBrick in Minecraft

Hello, and welcome to my noob tips! This is for all those lame noobs out there who are desperately scouring the web for any tips they can get! One of the most commonly questions asked on this “confusing” game is: “HELP ME!!! HELP ME!!! HOW DO I BREAK BLOCKS!!!” So first of all, here is the answer to that:

HOLD THE LEFT CLICK BUTTON DOWN

Ok, if you got that then great! If not… then i have no idea how you ever got onto the internet in the first place!

Now, for the rest of these “amazing” tips!

1. Left click to hit, right click to place.

2.Never dig straight down! – You’ll hit some lava if your lucky!

3.Build a house immediately.

4.REMEMBER WHERE YOUR HOUSE IS!

5.Don’t try and swim underwater for too long…

6.Try not to swim in lava.

7.Use W,A,S,D keys to move. Duuuuhhhh!

8.Hold shift to stay on a block and not fall off!

9.Double tap W and hold for a run!

10.Try not to be outside at night time…

11.Use torches!

12.If you value your house, then put torches in it please! – Monsters spawn in dark places!

13.DON’T FIGHT CREEPERS! – They are the green things with no arms and that blow up in your face!

14.Do not drop sand or gravel above you. – You will suffocate!

15.If about to die turn the settings to easy. – This will kill all the monsters and help you keep your gear!

16.When cave spiders are found RUN! – They poison and kill you but are only found in mine shafts.

17. Stay in water when killing endermen. – They get hurt by water!

18.Please, don’t burn down the forest…

19.Do not jump down cliffs thinking you will live. This is not Halo!

20.Build your first house by tunneling into a mountain. – It’s the easiest way!

21.If on mac hold down ‘fn’ on your keyboard if not you don’t have to but click on the F1, F2, F3 and so on. – This will change different things, check it out!

22.To get to options click ‘esc’ and check out different things you can do! – You can change your performance, making it less glitchy or change the controls to your liking!

23.Ummm… please don’t mine the diamonds with a wood, stone or gold pick… – This will not get you any diamonds because the picks are too weak! Use Iron!

Well, noobs and nooblets, that about sums it up for the noob tips. Oh, and one more, KEEP YOUR DIAMONDS SAFE! 😀

If you have any other questions, please ask! REMEMBER: We were all noobs at one point! (Trust me, I learnt this all from experience!)

MODS:

Posted: July 19, 2012 by AlexBrick in Minecraft

In Minecraft, mods, are a great way to enhance the game and make it much more interesting, mods can even totally change Minecraft, making it seem like a different game altogether. Mods can be easily downloaded off the internet and then installed into the game as showed in a tutorial I will post in the future. You can even make your own mod or get  downloads like Tekkit which have pre-installed mods on it, making it much easier for noobs so they don’t waste their time, trust me, I know! Some people may even use mods to hack on multiplayer servers, making them either be able to run really fast or kill in one hit! I WILL NOT BE POSTING THESE FOR YOUR BENEFITS, YOU MAY GET BANNED FROM A SERVER BECAUSE OF THESE!!! (Don’t get the XRAY MOD!) Here are some of my personal favorites:

Mo’s Creatures: This is one of my favorite mods because it adds some great mobs to the game like werewolves, sharks, bunnies and many more. You may even get lucky and find a fairy!  http://www.minecraftdl.com/mo-creatures-mod/

Hunger Games mod: Maybe you have to fight against computers but it’s still fun! On this mod you get to start an intense game of hunger games with the cornucopia and even Katniss! Set the rules to what you want them to be like and get started.  http://www.minecraftdl.com/the-hunger-games-mod/

Millenaire mod: This mod is another favourite. Who wouldn’t want to have villagers walking around and building a town for you? Find a village and instantly start supplying them with materials to build! This mod also downloads many other resources to build with.  http://www.minecraftdl.com/millenaire-mod-npc-village/

Balkan’s weapon mod: Have you ever wanted to spice up Minecraft with some dynamite? Or even shoot a chicken with a musket? Download Balkan’s weapon mod and get uo to 20 new weapons to defend or kill with!  http://www.minecraftdl.com/balkans-weapons-mod/balkons-weapon-mod-preview/

More explosives mod: A personal favorite here. Make the biggest crater you’ll ever see or shoot some tnt with a bazooka, this is what Minecraft is all about! 😀  http://www.minecraftdl.com/more-explosives-mod/

Too Many Items mod: Just an all round easier mod on singleplayer! http://www.minecraftdl.com/too-many-items-mod-inventory-editor/
