    My 1 concern in 1.8.

    The brightness setting.
    If you set it to 100% and go into a cave, it's bright enought that you can see everything.
    Dark room at 'moody' brightness:


    same Dark room at 'bright' brightness:


    Same room lit up with torches and on 'bright' brightness:

    I don't see the problem, just don't play with that level of brightness then?

    I'm guessing he's made it like this to fit the needs of a wider audience.

    He's saying that the resolution of his phone is lower than the res on his PC, and that the lighting in his room isn't fantastic, so he can't judge the difference between the 2 main pictures, and see what you're talking about in the 3rd picture.

    The last picture is alright IMO... I mean, it isn't such a huge issue, ya know? I mean, you have your torches, and you can see. Some people may have those big boxy monitors and can't see well in Moody? I don't know. Not really a "cheat" or anything.

    It looks a bit like you're using the Light feature in X-ray, because you don't need torches to explore areas that should be pitch black.

    but its easy to tell the difference because if your not using x-ray, you would have straight paths that make sense, but if you are, then you will have random tunnels leading directly to ores

    I'm not understanding. Your picture has torches.

    In any case, I only dark mined on Beta 1.0 - 1.7.3. It isn't hard. You just need to adjust your monitor so you're looking at it from a higher angle.

    If people want to mine with the Bright brightness setting, then let them, lol. What's it to ya?

    I used a laptop, and it's hard for me to get at the 'perfect' angle to do it.
    And when I was playing aroung with xray in SINGLE PLAYER (I took it off because it made me sick, I have problems with depth perception) one of the features was fullbright, which this looks like.
    Picture 1 is showing that in a room in 0 light level, you can still see perfectly, as toguht you had a torch, and on moody you
    Oh.'Okay, now I get what you said, and I'm too lazy to delete the above part >_>

    so, you are upset that someone isn't using a quarter a piece of coal and a quarter of a stick?

    Being able to see doesn't make dark mining any safer. Creeps will still creep ya.

    Um I get bullshit excuses on xray, like "I can change my res and see in the dark". So I don't see a problem, you can already see ores like that just by having a different res and 'tilting the screen'..
