Game Theory: How Much is Minecraft Diamond Armor Worth?
Diamond is a Minecraft player's best friend. But just how much money would a suit of Minecraft diamond armor actually be worth And more importantly, would diamond armor even work as armor or would it just be a piece of overpriced gemstone. Find out today on Game Theory
This show is awesome. Can you please do one about the theory that Hyrule and the Mushroom Kingdom are the same place? That would be epic! Maybe a two parter? Of course, beggars can't be choosers.
1st objection: you could've made the armour out of industrially manufactured diamonds, which are orders of magnitude cheaper due to not being very aesthetically impressive, but are still diamond-hard.
2nd objection: calculating the volume of Minecraft diamond armour was entirely the wrong move, especially if you were going to measure its value in real-life money. Instead, you should've proposed a hypothetical suit of armour for a real person made out of diamond and gone from there.
I really enjoy simply reading all of your weblogs. Simply wanted to inform you that you have people like me who appreciate your work. Definitely a great post. Hats off to you! The information that you have provided is very helpful. konsumen cerdas paham perlindungan konsumen cibadak sukabumi sewa mobil murah jakarta
Your calculations make no sense. A 3,100 Carat diamond had enough surface area to cover a hand, but contained enough volume that it could be stretched even further than that if you were using magic or heat or whatever process necessary to mold it into the shape of diamond armor. By your calculations, you would need a diamond the size of a small house to cover a human body. That doesn't make sense. If you divide the amount of carats you say is needed (2,632,500) by the size of the largest rough diamond (3,100), you get 849.19. So you are saying we would need a diamond large enough to cover almost 850 hands when NOT stretched thin. Most likely, you would need less than 1/10th carats total for enough surface area to cover the entire body than you say. Maybe you should calculate what volume a 1/2 inch thick covering of the entire body is first and then work on how much diamond would be needed from there.
If instead of diamond it was moon rock it would be worth even more.
no, ur not, i agree! but i think hes trying to talk "knight" armor style
I don't know if this would affect the outcome in any way, but the leggings and boots are two separate pieces, and the shoulder pieces are part of the chest plate (although they could be measured separately). I think part of the leggings go under the chest plate and boots. (I just checked, they do.) With nothing else on, the leggings are 312 pixels. The boots are around 60. (I couldn't tell since the bottom of the boots had a few pixels that were smaller than the others (wow...I am such a minecraft geek ^.^).
Where there's diamonds, there's cleavage. And where there's cleavage, there are boobs. Thanks for not disappointing on that aspect! Another great show Mat!
He actually built a detailed large gold emblem of himself? lol he really has some narcissism issues.
thats great, cept i can't buy a "SUPER OFMG AWESOME" mansion in a village with it. Or a fuck ton of feathers, w/e comes first.
...okay, that went well, I think. Still one more thing though, this isn't realistic anyways so buying the resources to do what you would need for diamond would be in the vicinity of this video. MatPat, you missed something! xD
I will assume you celebrate Christmas since you told me to have a good one, so merry Christmas to you sir or madam.
The pencils were an illustration, genius, not a comparison. You can't mold a diamond. Not easily enough for it to be a considered process for this discussion. The temperature required to reach is too hot (3,820 Kelvin), and you'd need a vacuum to do anything other than make it catch fire and burn. The tools required to do this are too expensive to NOT be listed on the crafting were they a part of the process, unlike relatively cheap steel. You're also missing the basic point I'm saying is elementary, that left of their own accord most objects require something (other than just holding them together) to stay connected to each other. Little kids may not understand the processes to make weapons or armor, but they sure as heck know you need something to make those macaroni stay on the paper. No, the WHOLE thing isn't elementary, just that BASIC thought.
You do have me wondering now, though, what you'd get if you molded diamonds and steel (and/or titanium) together, regardless of the insane temperature needed. I'm out. Merry Christmas.
theese calculations look very hard and cool when he does it and thats alot of the charm of this great show but its really simple stuff! I u wanna know how much the statue is worth just get the number of blocks u know they are one square meter now. And figure out (this is the hard part) how much karat the gold is.. ranging from 1-24 i think then just multiply it with the current marketprice for gold. yey
Are you comparing diamonds to pencils? xD Those aren't the only ways to make things stick together though, even a 1st grader knows that. My brother is getting proper schooling...I think. You do know how molding works don't you? You can melt materials such as metals or diamonds and place them in a mold so that when they cool they are in the shape you want them to. You can't try to bring this to a first grade level because it's not. Little kids, like my brother, don't understand the process to make something like armor or weapons. Saying diamonds can't stick together would be like saying you can't make metal alloys. It's entirely possible, but you just can't do it with glue and duck tape.
Oh wow, I love this episode. Exact to the very last cent. Wait, can you tell us how much that giant golden statue/portrait of your face is worth? It'd have to be worth twice the amount of gold you put into it, along with that one block of diamond.
On a totally unrelated note, was that Balrog in the gaming cave?
Damnit! The one time your ending song is Mo' money Mo' problems, there are no credits!
Ps: wicked math skills bro!
I never understood diamond armor or shields in RPGs...
my favorite line he has ever said, " So congratulations you just dropped more than the gross net product on a shiny new body suit"
so we may of may not be getting an assassin's creed theory
