The Devil's Mine Ride! A Minecraft Coaster!



The Devil's Mine Ride is a Minecraft coaster inspired by Halloween. It's full of red stone effects, crazy happenings, and monsters! I've spent about 120 hours on the whole thing. This is my second big Minecraft project. Please, let me know what you think!

This world also features 13 Secret Bonus Points for redstone powered fun, 5 hidden Snow Golems, 2 hidden Iron Golems, annnnnd my development commentary signs for some insight on my thought process. So download the world, ride the coaster, and go explore! Can you find them all?!

Valve releases tons of TF2 stats.



Valve has been collecting data about every single Team Fortress 2 match evar! Now, they are sharing their data with us!

You can check out the stats here . Probably one of the more interesting stats is that the scout is the most used class. I would not really have guessed that. Also, the sniper gets the most points per hour on average! INTERESTING!   read

DualShock3 to support PS2 games.



Pop a PS2 game in your PS3 and feel the power. The controller with the "last gen" feature is here to support your last gen games. Imagine... popping in a game like god of war.... the first time you rip a head off, your controller rumbles! WOW! AMAZING!

Thats right, the PS3 firmware 2.0 update quietly brings us rumble support for our old games (if you even have a backwards compatible console).

Does anyone else find this funny? Sony bad mouthed the rumble feature so much, and now it seems it is a big priority to them. I feel like they are just a big mess right now.   read

Garrys mod: orange box beta!

So, a beta version of the new garrysmod is out.




Straight from garry's keyboard:
* It's on the EP2 base.
* DX7 users will still be able to run it, but will probably get graphical problems with some of the new shaders, like the particles. If you're still running DX7 I'd recommend looking to upgrade ASAP. You won't regret it.
* Owners of EP2 will get new NPCs.
* Owners of EP2, Portal or TF2 will get new content from those games.
* Lamps cast real shadows (on hardware that supports it)
* Spawnmenu has been totally re-designed from scratch (and completely in Lua)


To run the beta you need Garrysmod 10, Orange box, and an account on garrys forums.

Here are the instructions and official download page. http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=441466
