    posted a message on Why most are hating 1.9?

    1.8 isn't so bad. It added some good things. Except diorite. I hate diorite :) And I'm absolutely loving 1.9 right now. It has made survival a challenge for me again. I haven't died in vanilla survival in ages. Just started a 1.9 hard mode survival, and death is a MUCH bigger threat. I've only died once, though (dang skeletons are a lot smarter now). 1.9 has succeeded in bringing back the apprehension of going out at night that we all had when we first started playing. The fear that a skeleton will pop out of nowhere and turn us into a pincushion. I say let the haters hate, and the rest of us just enjoy the ride :)

    posted a message on How high to build a mobfarm

    The lowest spawning platform you build should be at least 128 blocks above the highest ground in the area. This is because all mobs despawn after a distance of 128 from the player. The optimal distance for AFK would be somewhere between 24 and 32 blocks from the darkroom. This allows mobs to spawn, and protects them from the chance of despawning.

    Mr. Peckingsworth is back! I hope he returns to his former spunky self very soon :) As for those villagers, could be something....Could be nothing....Librarians are well read, and perhaps know how to avoid zombies; Clerics have the Chicken Deities on their side (the deceased must have been weak in faith); and maybe zombies don't like the smell of fish.....I would still keep an eye out...

    Is Optifine incompatible with the pack, or am I using a wrong version?

    That spider eye tea has some great nutritional value, but is sure is stiff... Helps to cut it with some milk and sugar. I prefer to make my tea with wild dandelions and rose petals. Wishing you good cluckings on the remainder of your journey!

    posted a message on Is it more or does 1.9 seems like a little too much...

    What some of you seem to be forgetting is that dual wielding is not mandatory. If you don't have anything in the off hand, the hand will not show (Source: Dinnerbone's Twitter). What does irritate me a bit about the new system is the removal of sword blocking. Fortunately for me, I hardly ever use it. As for Story Mode, it is a completely separate game. New arrows? Don't like 'em? Don't use 'em. And no one says you have to update.

    posted a message on How To Clear Land Faster

    What mod do you reccomend using?


    Vein Miner is great for clearing a lot of land in a short amount of time. You have to be careful with it, though. Sometimes it will mine more than you wanted.

    It feels a bit out of place with default, but looks amazing! This would be a great complement to a HD realistic pack.

    posted a message on Are shaders gonna destroy the torches and glowstone lighting effect?
    Quote from jcm2606»
    div class="quote-body">
    The shaders Minecraft are talking about are the shaders seen with the GLSL Shaders Mod. Mojang meant shaders in general. A shader is a computer program which takes an image per-pixel as input and applies a bunch of algorithms on the image to generate an output image. Shaders can either build up an image, as in calculate the lighting within a scene or alter the colours of objects in real-time, or they can alter a pregenerated image by way of "overlaying" renders onto the image. Mojang were talking about the former, and the GLSL Shaders Mod does the latter.
    What Mojang are talking about is moving the game from old fixed-function OpenGL calls (OpenGL calls within the game's code to control lighting and such) to a newer programmable GLSL shader to do the exact same things, but much quicker and with much greater flexibility.

    This is exactly the information we all needed. Thanks for an explanation! I was a bit disappointed that I might not get to play the new updates (crappy computer), but that helped.

    If I'm not mistaken, none of those versions exist. Updates aren't necessarily sequential. There's a lot of skipping around :)

    The versions you listed were updates that Mojang pushed out to prepare their end for future name changes. They didn't add any content that isn't in 1.7.4 (or 1.7.10, for that matter). Is there some specific reason why you need them? Because you are better off just playing 1.7.10...
