    so with 1.7 coming soon...(i think)...are you going to make a new version of Oceanblock? if so, that'll be great! Give me a reason to start the map from scratch...(although I'm not done with this one yet...almost, just need to make blaze farm...craft potions and kill ender dragon, and take the egg trophy.)


    I'd say it's pretty likely. However I cannot guarantee when it'll come out. I'm going to have some free time over the next month or so but I'm not sure when that time is, and I basically haven't played (or really followed) Minecraft since 1.6 came out so I'm not up on anything that's come in the snapshots since then.

    i got fire into my nether portal and it wont light please help me

    Did you have anything else in the portal? You need NOTHING but AIR and FIRE in the 6 blocks that make up the interior of the portal.

    Don't put a block inside the portal and light it on fire. Put blocks in front of and behind the portal and light them on fire.

    If you are already doing that, do it several times. Eventually it'll light.

    Can someone tell me what year this map was based off, 'cause I can't find my real life house in Texas.


    (P.S you should update the map to October 1, 2013, and start the map update on October 2, 2013.)


    I think you're expecting a little more out of this map than is possible.

    It's just the terrain, and every step you take is 1.5 kilometers. Your house just ain't gonna be there, man.

    What?? You found it easy going up the Nether in pancake? (I guess going up the corner is a lot easier than going up the middle like I did...)

    Actually I didn't even THINK of using the corner until I saw it in someone else's video. And no, I didn't find it easier. I'm just thinking about making it harder :D And removing the ability to use the corners :D :D :D

    In Oceanblock, a perfect village (5 perfect villagers, one of each type) actually isn't possible, since you'd never be able to make the farmer's 10 gravel for 4-5 flint trade, or the blacksmith's 4-5 diamond for 1 emerald trade. (Actually because of my Fortune 3 pick, I could probably trade the blacksmith once, maybe twice, but unless the diamond trade was very early, it is very possible it would take multiple trades to unlock the next slot.)

    Actually I was thinking of trying it in vanilla or (for the cred) on my friends' server.

    Though I *could* set up the first 2 villagers to be:
    1. A farmer with the gravel trade first and the wheat trade second. Wheat is about as easy to get as sugarcane.
    2. A blacksmith with the diamond trade first and... I don't know. Something second. One of the chainmail trades maybe as they're so low probability. Though I can't imagine putting the time into perfecting one of those guys :)

    I'll think on it some.

    Was she totally enclosed, possibly in the dark? The only thing I can think is that maybe a zombie spawned in there? Another possibility is, if you put her on a half-slab instead of a full slab (or the dirt that makes up the world), possibly she glitched through the floor.

    Sorry! simple despawning never happened to me :( The good news is, she's not CRITICAL to winning. Eventually you'll get another Silk Touch enchanted shovel and can get those resources, but it'll just be a lot harder now.

    well, I'm glad you're happy about the "evolution" of Oceanblock...I love the map myself...and are you still planning on making new versions like for when 1.7 comes out?


    Yeah I'm considering a minor revision to OceanBlock and a major one to Pancake Survival (Let's just say going up in the Nether won't be quite as easy as it is now), hopefully to coincide with 1.7. Renewable lily pads and nametags (that I didn't even know about until just recently) via fishing is really cool, and I just love the idea of pet creepers.

    All the discussion about Perfect Villagers has got my brain churning again, and I may try to create a Perfect Village, where everybody is either totally unlocked, on their way to being totally unlocked, or dead because they offered the good trades too soon.

    And another thing, 5thHorseman, do you mind all this talk about the Multiplayer version of OB inside of your thread? Just wondering.


    Not only do I not mind, I like it! It keeps the thread on the first page I support any way people can play the map. I don't really care if you get it via the direct download, the Adfly link, play one that someone else made, or play on this or any other server. All I care about is that people play it and that attribution is given to this thread so people can choose to play the original if they want. Which is what's happening here.

    In my mind this isn't some grab at some nebulous "potential players," it's a really cool, exciting wrinkle on the idea.

    Mind? Hell I'm FLATTERED! :)

    Are you guys expecting new islands to be created very often? Seems like (after the initial ones are created for the first players) that it would die down a bit to some base level of creation that isn't very much.

    I'm also curious why creating sand, dirt, and clay blocks is more processor intensive than creating water blocks. A block is a block, no? :)

    Oooh lots of activity in this thread today :) Keep it up!

    Quick final update on the Level IV enchanting challenge:
    My villager was selling Sharpness V books for only 20 emeralds! (Quite a bargain!)

    But it gives the WORST paper cuts.

    But I didn't even need that, I just enchanted a pair of Iron boots with 28 levels, and got Feather Falling IV and Projectile Protection IV on the first try!

    Sweet!

    Quote from BritishCommando2

    OceanBlock Multiplayeris now just like the original one!

    - Normal height!
    - Same shape (the bottom diamond ore is now there)!
    - 2 Villager Spawn Egg in each chest!
    - 1 Gravel block!
    - Fixed spawn point

    Great news! I knew those issues had to be fixable. Are you no longer worried about villager-induced lag? We like to make our villages BIG :D

    Quote from Bworms1980

    Hi 5thHorseman,

    Are there any glowstone in 4.1?

    There is. Lots of it, in the Nether. It's where you'd expect glowstone to be, just like the sand in the Overworld is where you'd expect sand to be.

    Ya, I just tried it out, but I might need to let them know something that I discovered when you create your own island...
    1) the island was 1 layer too high, (if you fall into the ocean, you have to break a block just to get back onto the island.)
    2) 1 diamond ore block is missing from the the underside of the island.
    3) when you type /ob create, you spawn under ur bed and start to suffocate...and you either have to jump right away or end up breaking the block ur stuck in and as such lose the only block of mycellium u have...

    I spawned underwater but not at the bottom of the ocean. I know they were fiddling with stuff so it's possible that the experience will change over time and with feedback.

    Apparently they can't make the ocean higher because it has to be this level for some reason. Also if they spawn the island lower it cuts off a layer. Maybe that one diamond block is getting cut off as well. Don't know.

    I hope they get the kinks worked out. It was a fun experience even though I was only there for a few minutes.

    thats nice, I might take a look at it, any idea how to join the server?

    I figured it out, just needed to remove the http:// part of it for some reason.


    Oooh! I didn't know that. I knew it wasn't needed (as I got connected that way) but I didn't know you couldn't have it!

    I'm happy to announce that OceanBlock has its own Multiplayer server!

    Thanks go to BritishCommando2 for setting up and running this. I have nothing to do with it.

    URL: http://oceanblock.us

    Just paste that into Minecraft and head on over!
    Alternate urls: oceanblock.me oceanblock.co oceanblock.in oceanblock.org
    Once connected hit T, then type /server Oceanblock
    Then read all the signs for what to do next!

    Oh so long as it's possible I'm cool leaving it as-is, though I did not intend it to be a grind-fest, just proof that you used your anvil, enchantment table, possibly villager trades and/or some books, multiple items, and a healthy dose of experience levels :)

    Actually it wasn't when enchanting came out, it was when anvils came out! I remember now because I figured anvils made it super easy. Apparently they merely make it (potentially! hopefully they're not too expensive) possible.
