NSFW. . siir, H- Should I really be using torches in a coal mine?. I've been thinking about doing a "Safety PSA" for minecraft. Like it'd be a joke, but it'd be me narrating very seriously about safe mining practices.

I'm a Minecraft modder. I am making a mod called "Glenn's Gases", which makes mining safety harder when it comes to using torches. I will probably add coal dust as a product of mining coal, which will be highly flammable and can be lit by torches.

Check it out of you want: www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1890587-/

Kinda like how there's explosive gas in some mines and caves and **** in skyrim.
User avatar #87 to #83 - lindow (12/05/2013) [-]
There's explosive gas in Skyrim?
I mean I noticed all the flammable oil pools/traps but never gas... sure that isn't a mod?
User avatar #131 to #87 - damianblu (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah if you go into a a mine sometimes you'll see the screen get all blurry and wavy. If you arm yourself with or use a fire spell it'll blow up. It also happens from flame cloak, fire breath shout, torches, and opponents/yourself being lit on fire with enchanted weaponry.

It does pretty high damage too.
User avatar #133 to #131 - lindow (12/05/2013) [-]
It seems really odd that I never set any off then, even my non-mage characters usually have the fiery soul trap enchant on their main weapon so I'm pretty much setting everything on fire all the time.
Only played a few thousand hours too...

I play on 360, so I'm sure it wasn't a mod. I've encountered it enough times in Dwarven Ruins to make me hesitant about using fire spells.

Amazing work! As a safety inspector in training I approve!

Looks great, and may make doing a hardcore playthrough even more challenging/fun

There is already a viral safety psa seires for minecraft
Minecraft PSA #1 - Look Before You Open (Machinima)
User avatar #78 to #74 - assdoreponyfucker ONLINE (12/05/2013) [-]
this is definitley not mining safety..., nor is it even a psa
User avatar #80 to #78 - xtwinblade (12/05/2013) [-]
The name is PSA and it got like over a million views so i dont think it matters, the point is that there is already a VIRAL minecraft series with the name PSA in it, so you would probably never find the "safety psa" videos burried beneath the machinima videos.

It sounds like most people want me to do it, so I guess I'll go ahead with it. I'm not promising it'll be the best thing since sliced bread and Jesus, but I'll post it on FJ when it's done.

I'd like to help you come up with some ideas if you want.   
   
And i'd say go for it, as long as, like everyone else pointed out., you don't have some helium 12-year old voice and a decent mic.

User avatar #9 to #5 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2013) [-]
If it turns out well, I'd watch it. Hell, I wouldn't mind being in it were that the case.

And then you should do a follow up with Feed the Beast or something, and it would say stuff like "Remember kids, Michael Bay taught us that transformers are important for a reason. Without LV Optimus Prime here, you would get this. *BOOM!*"
Because if you try to feed MV or greater voltage into an LV IC2 machine without either a transformer upgrade or a transformer between it and the power source, it will explode.

Anyone who's worked with coal knows its actually difficult to ignite. A simple flame will not start a reaction. It takes a concentrated flame and large amounts of oxygen to start and keep the coal burning. Now if you were mining methane or other natural gasses then using a torch would be a bad idea.
User avatar #16 to #15 - wolviewolverine (12/05/2013) [-]
... oh my f***g god...

we need to introduce gas blocks in MC!

So you can mine gas and build ignition engines and stuff.

seriously, their are a **** ton of mods out there. it's not even that hard to install them any more. the most difficult part is keeping up with all the updates, and when you play on a server, waiting for them to update so you can still connect.
User avatar #29 to #28 - wolviewolverine (12/05/2013) [-]
don't worry I visit MC forums sometimes.
But then again mods usually bring very unbalanced changes.

Also MC kind of lost its touch. Unless you got few friends to mine with, it has become very boring.

User avatar #32 to #29 - sirbrentcoe (12/05/2013) [-]
oh i know man. I bought both the xbox and pc version. xbox first, to get a feel for it. then once I found myself playing for hours on xbox, i dropped the 35 for the pc version. totally worth it. but you're right. now, i pretty much find myself building a house or small community on other peoples servers, and then not doing much else. my brother set one up, and decided to build an entire community inside the mountains. it's probably the coolest thing to happen in that game for me since the More Explosives mod.

and stability is only an issue if you install a ton at the same time, and can't figure out which ones goofy. Use forge, it's best mod loader.
#34 to #32 - anon (12/05/2013) [-]
or play vanilla mc master race like ive done since alpha. any 'good' mods will eventually make it into the full version. no muss, no fuss. ive yet to make a single stained glass piece as im still messing around with amplified. 1.7 was a massive update. why mod at all?

What's so wrong about it? Coal isn't anywhere near explosive or easily flammable.. right?
User avatar #64 to #60 - exotic (12/05/2013) [-]
coal dust is.
User avatar #73 to #60 - picklemaster (12/05/2013) [-]
No, but there is an incredible amount of methane that's released from the coal veins, which is explosive.
