Minecraft Snapshot 02/15/12A new snapshot for minecraft was released today. As usual you can download it from Mojang's website, twitter, the usual sources. It's a significant update though because it helps improve the villager aspect even more.Minecraft Snapshot 02/15/123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last week I talked about how the villagers and enemies had been updated. Enemies being more aggressive and learning how to walk around obstacles to get to you, and villagers more active by responding to weather conditions and day and night transitions. This week there's been a new addition... children!
If too many villagers are killed off in a NPC village, they will "repopulate" the village by giving birth to baby villagers. Right now they look exactly like their adult counterparts only pint-sized and fast as hell. I'm loving this new feature though because it gives me more reason to defend the villagers during the night.
Speaking of, the nights in villages are much more intense now. They fluctuate between periods of being rather peaceful nights, to insane hellish nights
Minecraft Snapshot 02/15/12 *fun ideas*Villagers repopulate according to how many buildings there are. I've discovered that they don't care if it's a building procedurally generated when the world was created, or if it's one you build yourself. So try to make a super huge village by building many houses for your Testificate villagers to inhabit.Minecraft Snapshot 02/15/12 *fun ideas*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Play on hard mode and try to defend a town from Zombie attacks (also fun on normal mode, though you won't have the threat of monsters breaking down doors).
With the new lighting mechanics, make a small room underground with lamps in the ceiling. Rig them to a switch outside the room with a single door (no windows). Turn the switch off and plunge the room into total darkness. INSTANT ENEMY SPAWN LOCATION! Once monsters start pounding at the door, turn the lights on and open it and collect your experience points. Since creepers will also spawn, try to make a gutter for them to walk in so you can stay up high and kill from a distance.
Rig lamps on a powered cycle to have them spell out

I am suffering from an artist block right now, and for that reason, I can't seem to get good results for my commissions.
SO I AM GOING TO CURE IT THROUGH THIS.
Before I draw something for you, please read everything first! ;u;
I will draw fanart or OCs (Original characters) only if they are either :
Humans/ Humans with animal ears, tail or wings.
You should have a reference picture, even if they are a well known character (e.g. Naruto,Goku,etc.), no descriptions,please.
I'll decide how I'll draw the character,mkay? Please do take note that Im drawing the characters in my style
LWN Literature contest!Hey guys! I'm TSC, the founder of :iconlive-write-now: and I'm happy to announce our new contest that our group is hosting!LWN Literature contest!3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
This isn't your regular contest, we aren't doing a holiday theme, way too many groups do that sort of thing, and I can imagine you writers are a little burned out from having to write about the holidays. I love them just as much as the next day, but there's got to be a little variation in our lives!
Our contest is to make a prompt(any form of literature accepted), that include/have the general point of these sentences! (Poetry does NOT have to the sentence in it, just have the general point and include 3 words from sentence in poem.)
Here are the sentences to work off of:
1. We ended our search that evening with an unspoken foreboding...
2.You should have heard 2 shattering sounds that September night...
3. A dark colored pool reflected the face of a curious child...
4. The melted pool of mint ice cream spilled off the counter, onto a cold wooden floor...

Got a DD! and FeatureSo I woke up this morning and turned on my computer like I always do and wait for it to load. Then I scanned my FB and find some music I like. I yawn stretch and go to check my DA. I click on it and it has a huge number like usual. I figure ahhh it's just the DA watch where you look at lovely art. So I click on my messages and it says 300 messages to me. I blink and think "nahh that's not right but click to look anyway." Then I see all these "congrats on your DD!!" my heart pounds and my eyes get huge and then I scream and dance. Yeah I was excited and still am in shock.

"Justice is Blind"
For justice, though she's painted blind, Is to the weaker side inclined. Samuel Butler
The course of justice often prevents it. EDWARD COUNSEL, Maxims
Many remark justice is blind; pity those in her sway, shocked to discover she is also deaf. DAVID MAMET, Faustus
The most reasonable man always manages, when he pulls the trigger, to become a dispenser of justice. JEAN GENET, The Balcony
In the Halls of Justice the only justice is in the halls. ~Lenny Bruce
Somebody recently figured out that we have 35 million laws to enforce the ten commandments. ~Attributed to both Bert Masterson and Earl Wilson
A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer. ~Robert Frost
The trouble with the laws these days is that criminals know their rights better than their wrongs. ~Author Unknown

I have decided to post this journal here, rather than my kennel account, so I don't put it in the way of my competition journal. I've had dogs before, but I would love some help on the best ways to save and decisions on what would be best for me. All positive opinions are welcome.
The past week or so, Mum and her partner, Rod, have been looking at buying their first house. Currently, the live apart, with Rod living five minutes around the corner. Today was the day they bought that house. It was quite exciting. It's a lovely house, but the section needs bit of a work up. Anyway, Mum and I have done some talking, and we believe that getting two dogs would be beneficial, but one of them would be my responsibility and my own dog. I'm not very independent, my exercise is rather "shit", and I'm not at all confident. As I spoke to the psychologist every week, we both also thought that

Surprise!I bet you thought you'd seen the last of meSurprise!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello again! I am, surprisingly, alive. I know, what a shock.
I apologise for the fact that I have been mostly absent from dA for the last two years. The reason for that is that last year I was living on-campus at uni which kind of just unequivocally sucked, and led to me spending the whole year watching Game of Thrones and...not doing much else. Thankfully that year is well and truly over, and everything that was bothering me then is all good now.
As for this year, I meant to come back to dA properly but then I discovered this really cool corner of YouTube called BookTube, where people make videos about books that they have read (!!!) and I really fell in love with it so I decided to make a channel there. So that means that I have been doing a lot of reading and not much else XD For those of you who are interested, this is my channel: youtube.com/thingslucyreads
So, again, I'm sorry for being away so long. I'll try and get through

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
