Hiya and welcome here, and don't worry, no hard feelings held against you for making a Minecraft game :). It is just that on ticalc.org, for years there have been floods and floods of Minecraft, Zelda, Mario, Dragon Ball and Pokémon clones that did not even come close to what the original games were. For example, most Zelda games are actually turn-based RPGs where you see no enemy graphic nor can't move anywhere else. The problem became so brutal a few years ago that Ticalc.org created download sections just for Dragon Ball and Pokémon clones. Since then, the reputation of calculator clones of popular game franchises has been kinda tarnished in the TI community (although it's even worse on some other sites, since Omni tends to be a bit more tolerant), even moreso since the 800K views Skyrim clone incident and the infamous Halo clone.

Thanks for the clarification, though. Also the cave generation program seems interesting. It would be nice if it was added to the Minecraft game so there are pre-generated underground paths like the original game. Lava/water might be a bit overkill to add, though :P (especially if you use Pixel-test for collision detection)

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Hi!

Really, the the other members are just upset at viewers ignorance and lakco f knowledge of calculators.

But wow, I thought that barely anything could get more views than portal programmed by one of the best coders.
I never realized how many views skyrim had.

Hi there, we always welcome new members, but yeah, such projects just kinda grab more attention to the normal person if they contain names like 'minecraft'

You can’t blame anybody for naming a video of what they did
Yeah, “I made minecraft for graphing calculator” isn’t the most modest, but still

Hello Ameobea!

I just saw this, and your project actually looks very promising. Especially coming from someone coming out of the blue with it.

I think the only problem people are having to cause any kind of issue is certainly not fault of your own, but how there's suddenly a burst of attention towards it, and people finding these think that's the pinnacle of calc development.

This one in particular:



Your project is impressive though, and could become something of a milestone of it's own right. Though definitely push it in more of a Terraria-like game. It'd benefit greatly being a 2D platformer.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Welcome Ameobea!

I'm glad to see that you enjoy programming your calc like we all do. There's even some old guys around that still enjoy programming their calcs. :D

Yeah about the Skyrim
and people finding these think that's the pinnacle of calc development.

About that, I remember the Skyrim game getting lots and lots of positive comments like if it was the best calc game ever, then you visit the Spencer Zelda video and people say it's fake, or you visit comment pages of one of the major featured Ticalc.org hybrid BASIC program and half of the people are saying it's total junk.

The ironic thing is that the bad comments are mostly from people who have never owned or programmed a calculator before, so you would expect Reddit gamers to have the same reaction, right? O.O

And if you check, the new comments for skyrim are hours and days old
Portal has comments weeks and months old
I wonder my ‘ncraft’ video didn’t get famous like skyrim though
I was cheap and looked like the real deal

I think I posted nCraft on Reddit, but it didn't get much attention. Maybe the slow framerate turned people away or it was missed.

Well, I was referring to my fake video using the nspire movie player
That got posted on tiplanet, but now I realize that cheap videos seem to get fame

Oh lol. I think if it was called nCraft and made it on Reddit it might have tarnished the real nCraft reputation since everyone would have thought Chockosta's game was fake :P

That is what bugs me: people thinking real games are fake only because they do not want to believe that a calculator can do so awesome stuff.

Ameobea, I want to apologize for what I've said earlier in this thread, since I might have offended you.
I wasn't really upset on you, but a little frustrated with the ignorance of some people, who find programs like yours revolutionary.
When I say that I could make something similar, it is true. But I am now more of an experienced programmer, and I used to make programs where I'm not too proud of now.(e.g: Mario Basic). But that's part of the process of becoming a good programmer.
So, please, don't feel stopped to continue progress on this. ;)

Same as Stefan, I would like to clarify my previous post. I say nothing about your work, it is really hard to make great games in pure basic. I am just against the fact you called it MineCraft and that people say it is even hard to make a moving pixel.
But I'd be glad to see your other projects if any :)
