Community Block Textures And Maps

I have finished work on allowing you to share block textures and maps. This will be soon released along with 1.20, and hopefully will allow pretty much everyone to easily download custom content.

Here’s how it works:

Someone creates custom content (block textures and worlds are supported) and uploads it somewhere on the internet, for example to his Dropbox.

Then he publishes the link to the content using this dialog in the game:

PublishDialog

Once this is done, the link will start appearing in the list of community items in the game. Everyone can see this list and download anything from it by clicking a button.

The system ranks the items by download frequency, and lists most downloaded items first. Links that fail download many times (for example because the item is no longer accessible through the published link) will be downgraded and eventually removed.

Important thing to remember: the server does not store the actual content, only links to it. Like a search engine. It is the publisher responsibility to keep the content accessible through the link.

The easiest and recommended way to publish something is to upload it to your Dropbox, and then use the new “Copy Link” button to copy the link to the clipboard:

CopyLink

Once the link is in the clipboard, you can paste it into the Publish dialog.

The system will not allow publishing the same content more than once. There is also a limit of 5 published items per user. This is to avoid people spamming the system with worthless rubbish. I don’t think anyone can create and maintain more than 5 items and keep the quality up. The 5 items limit may be increased in the future if it proves too small. Of course, you can delete items you no longer want and publish new ones, as long as there is no more than 5 on the server at any given time.

When publishing something, choose the name carefully because there is no way to rename stuff (other than delete and republish, but that will reset the rankings).

      Kaalus,when a door is burned,the bottom or top part only is burned,what i mean is when i burn the bottom part of a door,the top part is NOT YET burned.
      Pls add something like redstone torch because every circuit in this game has wires.So we can never have a SECRET door and such

        Actually you can create secret stuff in this game, very easily.
        You better want to watch this video. It explains how to hide wires:

          I know,there is a piece of wire next to the pressure plate,i mean even if you put a button the wire is always visible at the same block with the button,maybe something wireless

    Hey kaalus can you add a way to tame a wolf and have it as a dog. I keep having problews with the wildlife getting into my house or near my house and killing me mostly wolves and bears.
    and can the dogs be given the choice of staying in the house or coming with.

      Yeah,does adding a way to tame dogs fulfill your criteria or not?And you forgot to add Hyenas

    Kaalus you should make this game for Windows 8 ! that would be cool. I mean its easy just have an option that says “enable only if being played on Windows8 or something or an OS Detecter.

    You need to make a truck or car or four wheeler. You need to make a rifle and ammo making machine and a shotgun or a pistol and indoor plumbing and fireplace block so that they aren’t so big. You need to make garage doors to for vehicles. You need to make furniture too. A motor boat. This game already blows mincemeat out of the water it would be even better if you could add these things to it. Please consider these options. That’s you kaalus
