    posted a message on Point of breeding Mules?

    From what I can tell, I don't believe Mules have any particular advantage over a Donkey or even a Horse. Is there any point specifically breeding one, or is it a waste of golden carrots?

    You know how every game has a mod that you didn't know you really wanted until someone makes it?

    I just found Minecraft's.

    The free edition I'm assuming you're talking about is the Java Edition demo. The demo is fairly limited, mostly in terms of time; it only lasts for about an in-game week. Five days, or about an hour and forty minutes. The full version supports a bit more compared to the demo, off the top of my head, the most notable features:

    - No time limits on worlds, you can play the same world forever and keep progressing.
    - Resource pack support. It allows you to change how Minecraft looks. The official wiki explains it better than I can in this regard. The demo doesn't support this, I believe.
    - Allows you to play in multiplayer. Multiplayer mode and interacting with others might not be appropriate for a six year old, but I personally had a blast surviving and building with buddies when I was around 14 or so.
    - Creative Mode; throws every rule about Survival Mode out of the book and gives you infinite materials and infinite flight to allow you to build absolutely anything you can imagine. Can be toggled on world creation.


    The different additions are very confusing; The original one is called Java Edition, and it's what I play with. There is also a Bedrock Edition that primarily has support for Windows 10, and has been ported to platforms like the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You should probably read up on the editions, again on the official wiki to make your final decision.

    Also, check out the wiki page on Minecraft's educational values. While it's your choice, I think that your child would love the full Minecraft experience.

    Still love this pack, even 4 years later. I hope you're feeling better, overall -- are there any plans on pushing an update to 1.13.x?

    Quote from TheMasterCaver»

    Redstone is by far the most common resource when branch-mining at diamond level; it is nearly as common as coal and drops 4-5 dust per ore - on average you only need to mine 2 ore to make a block, and with Fortune III you get an average of 2 blocks every 3 ore. It isn't as common when caving; redstone is only 3-4% of all ores I mine but I still mine more than 100 ore per play session (plus 2/3 of all ores are coal, which most players probably aren't going to mine all of), and the suggestion is for an item that you only need one of:
    Blocks mined over 121 sessions/466 hours spent caving:
                            percent  /session   /hour
    Coal ore:       256837  67.5654   2122.62  551.15
    Iron ore:        93786  24.6720    775.09  201.26
    Redstone ore:    12831   3.3754    106.04   27.53
    Gold ore:        10857   2.8561     89.73   23.30
    Lapis ore:        3754   0.9876     31.02    8.06
    Diamond ore:      1598   0.4204     13.21    3.43
    Amethyst ore:      223   0.0567      1.84    0.48
    Ruby ore:          153   0.0402      1.26    0.33
    Emerald ore:        92   0.0242      0.76    0.20
    Total ore:      380131            3141.58  815.73


    (this was from a modded world but ore distribution is similar to vanilla 1.6.4; if anything, I've found relatively more redstone and diamond in a vanilla world; while 1.8 made ores more common, which is supported by my experience when caving for 30 minutes in a recent version, including with the current much smaller cave systems, to see how caving changed)


    Oh wow -- I didn't know it was that common. Yeah, this is perfect, then.

    It would be a neat challenge idea, but it definitely doesn't warrant it's own gamemode in the slightest. No support.

    Really, this would be a good mod, but wouldn't fit in vanilla Minecraft at all. ...Would that be partial support?

    It's clearly a reference to the spelunker potion from Terraria. I support; it's a cool idea, anyways.

    Definite support. Redstone blocks might be too expensive, though?

    Beta 1.7.3 was the final update pushed before the Adventure Update (which added hunger), 1.8. That's probably your best bet.

    No. I'd keep it, though. It's free armor and a free enchantment.
