As of the latest Minecraft snapshot (12W40A), it is now possible to create superflat worlds with structures such as trees and grass. I still haven't found out how to create a superflat world with this setting - where is the option for this?
@JasonBerkan If I know it's an unregistered user, I don't comment because it's 99.9999% likely it's a drive-by question and they don't care/won't check. I don't think I voted NARQ, but I might've misclicked in a drunken stupor. It's not constructive and too localized
No constructive: soliciting opinions on whether something is a rip-off. Who knows. We live in a capitalistic society: people charge what the market will bear. It's not the "good subjective" either, because it doesn't produce an objectively testable position through someone's experience. If it were something like, "What's the average cost of a Minecraft server that does X, Y, and Z" then we're getting somewhere
Which leads to why it's too localized: who cares? It's not generalizable question. Like I said, people charge what the market will bear. Two servers could have the same feature list and still be okay charging two different prices due to some intangible like friends or because it's the "cool server" or whatever
@JasonBerkan While that's one way to rewrite it, it doesn't ask that as worded right now; it asks if it's dodgy that someone wants his/her 12 year old child to donate money, and that he/she isn't sure if the child is being taken advantage of because they are pressuring him for money. That's leading the witness, and to answer it correctly, you have to say whether said server is, in fact, taking advantage of a child by pressuring them for donations
We all love to gain experience rep here on Arqade, but wouldn't it be great if that translated into a leveling system? Don't you just want to see your experience bar build up as you answer more questions and gain more super powers privileges?
Well wait no more! Through this special online only o...
A special happy birthday to Arqade. See if you can find it ;)

@JasonBerkan But writing a question is hard, so let's say it's rewritten to that formulation, "is it normal for people to charge stuff on a Minecraft server?" How do we define normal? The majority of servers? How do we figure that out? Did someone do a survey? But what does it matter what a sample of servers do if you like a specific one and are willing to pay to support it?
@JasonBerkan I think 'what do I need to do to be successful at charging for stuff on a minecraft server' might be better, but it seems more like a business question to me than a gaming one.
@JasonBerkan At best we get anecdotal stories like, "well my server charges X" or "no server I'd play on charges or anything" or like the one we got, which makes an unbacked claim that "most servers" ask for donations. They're just not helpful, and amount to a poll. Might as well ask people you trust for a selection of opinions.
We're a WoW guild trying to manage the Stone Guard in Mogu'Shan Vaults, 10 man.
We've got the basics down with the overloads, exploding the one whos active etc. but our healers run OOM at about 50%. This is due to the massive damage the tanks take from the rend flesh debuf. How do we deal with t...
I think I might have made a mistake. I have been trying to get the Research Assistant badge and I am selfish for that. I like shiny new badges.
For that I have been adding information to tag wikis that do not have them. In that I add General Information and Tag Specific wikis.

After holding down the fire button and depleting a clip, the gun will not automatically reload until the fire button is released.
This behavior is incongruous with that of most other FPS games.
Is this behavior by design, or is it a problem with my setup? MOUSE1 is bound to the "Fire" action, a...
This probably isn't a terrifically useful feature to request, but I think it would be nice to be able to look at all of the starred messages in a particular chatroom, and sort the results by number of stars.
I'm trying to save all the missions with unique loot for a playthrough 2.5, so that I can get high level uniques. My character is getting pretty severely underleveled in the process and is now too weak to take on higher level enemies. Is there a list of the missions that one can do before playt...
@JasonBerkan it was at four close votes and I think 2 flags when I closed it. There were several different reasons chosen. I felt it was too localized, personally. I have no idea why they're asking for money or if it's a good deal or not. Donation supported servers are pretty common, tbh. It's also kind of a vague question, so I could see it being NARQ, and there's really no factual way to determine if $10 is unreasonable or not, so it's kind of not constructive too.
I came kind of late to that party, so I didn't think to leave a comment. If I tried, I'd probably end up coming off as jumping down their throat (seeing as I think there's a billion reasons why I don't like the question). I don't know that education is really important in this case, since this doesn't really seem like a person who is going to be asking a lot of questions, but that's kind of my personal opinion.
@agent86: (Dishonored) One thing that has me concerned is that the player is jumping all around, up and down, and no one is even noticing him. That makes me concerted the stealh will be really easy, which would make the stealth fairly boring imo (which is how I'd want to play).
You can use herbs to create herb tablets that can be stored in the herb tablet box for using to heal your character. I recently found out by mistake I can hold more than the default 6, I upped it to 10. Can I stored more than this? I am a bit cautious about just trying it in case I hit the limit ...
So I know loot is allegedly better in co-op play and enemies are tougher. But I've noticed certain other things change gameplay-wise. Most noticeably, in co-op play I can Phaselock an Ion Loader through their sphere shield; in single player Phaselock doesn't affect Loaders behind the shield.
In Star wars battlefront I've always been in situations where I wished I had a lightsaber to hack at some enemy CPUs. I was just wondering If there was a glitch or a weird Easter egg to have the legendary laser sword. I read a cheat code sheet and I found what I was looking for, but it didn't wor...
I want to setup a Bukkit server for Minecraft and I wonder whether there is any multiplayer plugin which automatically "refills" your equipped item stack if possible.

I just started playing War of the Roses, and although the game does offer a tutorial on how archery work, it doesn't explain how the melee combat works. I've figured out that there are different kinds of melee attacks, but I have no idea how to use any particular attack.
