Maybe you haven’t heard, but Minecraft is this little game that has over 50 million users now. You start out alone near a village (if you're lucky) with a bunch of TESTIFICATEs that aren’t exactly human. You start punching trees and building shacks to be protected at night form all sorts of baddies, soon you will find yourself with castles stretched to the skies and portals to other worlds. Minecraft was one of the highest-selling games even while in beta. This thread will be for general Minecraft discussion as well as conversation on Smogon-affiliated servers.
As a rule we would like to encourage original discussion in this thread over simple game questions. Basic getting-started information and how to build machines and farms can be found on the Minecraft wiki here: minecraft.gamepedia.com/Minecraft_Wiki.
Furthermore, the in-game crafting guide helps some.
Play with smogoons!
We have a Discord server for discussions that are more spontaneous: spo.ink/minecraft
One of the primary features of the Discord server was a Pixelmon server provided by yours truly. The server is currently offline, but it can be reinstated at any time if people wish. The modpack we use for that server can be installed via the Technic launcher with the instructions at this page: www.technicpack.net/modpack/smogon-craft.1745968 (Click the "+ Install this modpack" button for the guide). My goal with this modpack is to provide an enhanced progression to enable a vast array of tools for building while also having ample facilities with which to build a Pixelmon team for friendly battles with fellow users.
