    Interesting that Grian's done this *and* is bringing up Evo. Since people in the hernitcraft fandom really *love* being up Evo's lore from what I've found. Maybe this is a call to action to watch Evo so Grian can have some Evo stuff appear through the Rift and it not be completely lost on everyone?

    I would LOVE to see a shortened version of the evo series, where everyone came back together for it. I loved it so much. My favorite part was when Grian said “I can’t imagine doing what those guys on hermitcraft do. It’s absolutely crazy.” And now to see where he is. I’ve been a fan of the channel for so long. It’s amazing to see how far you’ve gone, and I’m sure I’ll stick with your channel for as long as you go. Your videos are on another level of Clip-Share. It’s crazy to see just how much your channel has grown since then.

    It would be amazing if Grian brought back Evo. There has been so many new updates and new friends since the original Evo, so I think an Evo season 2 would be really interesting
    Edit: what if they did Devo where the watchers devolve the server to try and stop them from progressing. Just a cool little idea I had that I think would be perfect to bring back watcher lore

    I remember when the added beds, that definitely changed the feel of the game. My friend and I also got into multiplayer the day it released, we built a base about 15,000 blocks from spawn then dug a tunnel most of the way back. There was no nether at that point so it was a slow process.

    one of the weirdest things i remember from beta was the fact that monsters would almost always spawn if you tried to sleep? it didnt matter how lit-up the place was or if you were sleeping in an completely enclosed space, monsters would spawn. im not sure when they removed this bug/feature, but good riddance lmao even now years and years later i still sleep with my sword in hand just in case a zombie wakes me up when i sleep

    Theory:
    The squid's model was originally a cow and while modeling the squid and changing code to how the squid behaves - I believe that they forgot some tiny things like the place where you milk cows and it was the same place as where you milked the squid due to some messed up code and stuff.

    • troll

      When making the squid, they copied the Cow class code and turned it into a squid, but they forgot to remove the cow's right click code from the squid.

    My guess, for the squid milk, is that they created the squid by cloning the cow mob and altering it from there aesthetically.

    • Mekal Covic
      Mekal Covic Month ago

      Literally what happened. Jeb was new to working on mc at the time so he wasn't familiar with the process for making a mob. So when making a new mob he decided to just copy paste the code for the cow.

  • Kat

    hey Grian, just found out something you'll love for future builds, you know how the wall blocks could never be used as walls on a house, well they fixed that, just use your frame that you make out of wood blocks, and attach the wall blocks all the way and they'll work like vertical slabs basically, it's really cool, saw a video that pointed this out

    Squid milk explaination:
    They copied the cows code to make the squid. That's why they can be milked and also they don't sufficate.

    • Mekal Covic
      Mekal Covic Month ago

      @Noxmore they have an article somewhere where they confirmed that they copied and pasted the cow code. Presumably because the person who added it was new and thus unfamiliar with the codebase

      @Goncalo Balança If OP is correct, it means they copied the code from cows, then changed the EntityRenderer and made it unable to drown.

    I would imagine the idea of getting a milk bucket from a squid could have been a placeholder for devs to later add squid ink into the game, but ended up being removed in place of squids just dropping ink when they die

    I started playing back in beta and even though it was weird and very broken in some ways it was still so much fun. I started even before squids, before there was a nether, beds, wolves, endermen, biomes and so many other things. Logs used to burn forever, spiders didn't climb walls, the only wood was oak and you had to break wood slabs with a pickaxe. And don't even get me started about minecart weirdness, there were only plain rails, minecarts and furnace minecarts. Redstone was extremely limited, there was redstone dust, torches, blocks, buttons, pressure plates and levers, that was all. Even though it was a very limited game back then I still loved it and still do.

    I remember the time beds were added and how controversial this was. A loud group (not sure whether majority or minority) did not like the addition of beds. They'd let you skip one of the things that actually made the game a bit more difficult.
    It's also why I was so surprised that the Phantom won a mobvote later, since initially people didn't want beds and then people wanted to be forced to sleep.

    • Rae
      Rae 2 months ago +1

      I remember this too. The addition of beds was the first real game-changing update that I experienced, in the sense that it actually changed the "feel" of Minecraft for me. Perhaps on the same level as the addition of hunger, testificates, or the combat update.

    I was 7 when Minecraft first came out, so I consider myself to be a part of the younger group when it comes to the game. And though I was never a video games type of person, Minecraft had such a huge impact on my life. It’s funny to see how silly block game influenced our childhoods so much that even seeing the old block textures or hearing the old music is enough to make a grown man cry. Especially realizing how much Minecraft has impacted the Clip-Share community. I’m so grateful for this game and the memories it made, even remembering back to the really questionable game design of beta.

But then again, they had pretty much reached the newest minecraft version at that time, so there wasn't a lot left unless they became another SMP like Hermitcraft (not saying I would've minded that, but they wouldn't be all that unique anymore).

    The callback to the Minecraft Evo series
    That was when I first started watching Grian
    That triggered some nostalgia for me.
    Who else was there at that time?

    i love beta 1.7; sometimes i go back to it because its so different. 1.19 is amazing, the caves and world gen are crazy and theres so much, but beta 1.7 is like... slow paces and fairly relaxed, but at the same time night and caves are insanely scary because its super dark and theres no sprinting. ive played since like 2011 so its awfully nostalgic, but even in modern versions going to the slow paced style of gameplay not using enchants and stuff can be nice and relaxing, even if its slow
    i kinda wish there was like some merged version. stuff like no sprinting and the slow pace and the like, significantly more scary nature of it for some reason, but with the new world gen and blocks and stuff
    also; sweet evo reference

    I did not know about the boat wiggle, because shifting was never a thing to leave boats until the boat rework. It had never crossed my mind to crouch in one as you right clicked to exit lol.
    Also I miss the machine bow. It was so fun to just spam :p.
    I miss the nice green grass of beta.

    Imagine if the new life series is based on going through the different updates of Minecraft and obtaining idk a certain item to get into the next update, and if you didn't you would lose a life. Start off with 5 lives, red lives could kill as usual etc

    Two things I want to add: 1) the reason why you could milk squids is because originally they had the exact same code as cows (and they could even fly out of the water, very weird looking). And 2) the fence glitch where you get stuck is only on Multiplayer (Grian was right(multiplayer Minecraft was even weirder than singleplayer))

    Those boats were actually useful thanks to Etho's EATS Road designs!
    Minecarts were voodoo back then with those paralleling slingshot setups needed to give boost, plus iron was hard to come by with the slower mining speeds. EATS roads were super cheap on resources, and with Etho's boat dispenser designs, boats could basically function just like minecarts and rails do today!
    Huge shout out to Etho for the early day ingenuity, there's a reason he's a legend in the community :D

      the EATS roads and the old fast climbing ladder with the water on the side are two things I wish had stayed in the game. We have alternatives with the magma block and slowsand and the ice roads, but it'll never be quite the same

    • DreadKyller
      DreadKyller 2 months ago +9

      I honestly loved the old Minecart boosters, the minecart physics in general back then were interesting, while the normal speed was lower, the glitch responsible for the Minecart boosters to work back then seemed to break it and made you go quite fast and not slow down for a significant amount of time. If you used enough minecarts in a single booster you could boost at the bottom of the world and make it all the way to the top of the world without any noticeable drop in speed.

    I always wonder why it took me so many years of knowing about minecraft, before starting to play minecraft.
    But seeing vids of the early versions I am kinda glad honestly. We had decent games back then, we didn't need to play this weird thing.

    I'd forgotten a lot of these little quirks. I sometimes still think of some features as new and then realise they were added like 8-9 years ago. None of the newer updates seem to have had the same impact on me as the old ones back then, so they stick in my mind a lot more.

    4:43, I went to beta 1.7 and for some reason, the bed recipe that I have used for the past 5 years didn’t work and I looked it up and it didn’t give me any results, however, I can memorize every recipe in 1.19, although I haven’t properly played with everything

  • SecondEngineer
    SecondEngineer 2 months ago +516

    Back in the day, not having crafting recipes was part of the fun of the game. Imagine starting a world with friends. They show you how to make crafting tables, furnaces, torches, tools, and doors. And then you are left to explore. Bit by bit you uncover how to make things like armor, boats, rails, shears, etc. You figure out that sand smelts into glass! It was a wildly adventurous time.

      I agree, and a better time overall, because if you wanted it to just be that, to just play with your friends and learn by means of others, then you could, it created little myths, and it also made the game 100x more fun, for reference it took me multiple months to learn you could craft in the first place. (Bedrock when it was ancient ancient.)

    As a bedrock beta player the older versions of the game were so much weirder. Chests just didn’t work when you were in creative, you couldn’t bring items from other game modes like creative so you had to lay down the blocks in order so you could get diamonds it was very strange

    Funny you should mention that because Dagnel is currently doing a "collect every block in Minecraft in release order" series where he goes version by version getting one of each block as they get added. It's a pretty fun trip through history. I've been playing since the first Halloween update that added the Nether and remember all these bugs and glitches. That stair rendering glitch and not being able to get them back after placing them bugged me forever.

    Grian, have you ever thought of mentioning to the other hermits maybe starting a season in beta or maybe just when the game released and going through the versions. I know this sounds similar to Evo but I feel like the hermits would add an interesting twist to the challenge, if you could even classify it as a challenge

    It would be cool to see a transitioning Minecraft version game where it starts out in the very first version of Minecraft and seamlessly transitions to the next update from then. This is including the mini window you’d have in the early version and you couldn’t full screen. It would be cool if all this happened automatically without you having to change versions every time you want to switch. Just go out 1000 blocks and the game automatically updates to the next version while in game.

    This video was very nostalgic from the perspective of someone who has been playing minecraft from nearly the beginning as a kid. I remember when infinite chunks simply didn't exist and you were confined to a certain amount of space (at least on the mobile version). I quite literally laughed at a few of the things you mentioned (like the fun times with the boats) simply because I had forgotten what it was like to play minecraft back when I was 8.

    Interesting that Grian's done this and is bringing up Evo. Since people in the hernitcraft fandom really love being up Evo's lore from what I've found. Maybe this is a call to action to watch Evo so Grian can have some Evo stuff appear through the Rift and it not be completely lost on everyone?
