    According to the Wiki, zombies and drowned do seek out villagers from a distance of 42 blocks but the villagers don't panic until they get within 8 blocks (15 blocks for pillagers.) So 16 blocks between inner and outer fences/walls should be enough.


    Thanks for the correction. I remembered that zombie's could tack villagers up to 42 blocks away and that villagers will search for work stations within 42 blocks so I didn't really think twice about the villager-to-zombie spotting range. :P

    Having at least 10 cats in a village is supposed to stop golem summoning for some reason. Or maybe that was in an earlier version?


    This would explain why some of my iron farms stopped working sometimes. I hope this is still considered on-topic.. Is there a way to stop cats from spawning to stop them from hitting the cap besides spawn proofing the entire village?

    I have to agree with everybody else, your house looks great. :) I'm a big fan of elevated houses and big windows so those are the reasons I like it. Plus, I think it's nice that you're incorporating the jungle into your build.


    Don't know if you're still looking into mob-proofing, but I've never had any issues by just fencing off a perimeter and placing a light source every 5 blocks inside of it.

    Heya.


    You're right about the line of sight. Your walls have to be 2 blocks or higher to prevent your villagers from seeing any zombies.


    An alternative is to build an outer wall that is at least 42 blocks away from your inner walls. Mobs don't track objects that are outside of this range, so if you build a buffer zone the zombies should never be close enough to scare the villagers.

    Edit: See Hexalobular's post.

    posted a message on My first Enderman farm

    That's pretty cool. I see you've gathered a bunch of xp already!


    If you're planning to fight the wither I'd recommend crafting a Smite V sword. Two people carrying them can defeat the wither in seconds, but even a single person can bring it down in no time if you're in the right place.

    You can fight it anywhere but you should preferably do it someplace where it can't fly off. Fighting a flying wither can be really annoying, even with an elytra, so I'd suggest doing it near the roof of the nether (Since withers can't destroy bedrock), or somewhere underground.


    Good luck! Keep us updated. ^_^

    Music can create some truly awesome experiences. Thanks for sharing. ^_^


    For one that is not nearly as poetic try putting Michael Jackson's Smooth criminal somewhere in your playlist. Sooner or later that "Ow!" at the beginning is going to sync up with something happening.

    It nearly killed me when a creeper exploded right behind me. :lol:

    Quote from Toadrunner»

    Very nice! You were really lucky with your world. It is lovely! It occurs to me that it would be fun to create a children's photo book about Minecraft adventures with accompanying text. It would be quite expensive, though.


    Sounds like a great idea. Back when Minecraft had more media coverage I saw a few books showing off building ideas and the like, but I don't think I've seen one showcasing an adventure.

    Would be pretty neat to see one, as I know a majority of players had never visited the nether before this update, and only a tiny fraction of us have made it to the end. An adventure book would have helped guide a ton of players.


    Anyway... I made it to nether the very day I made this thread but didn't have the time to upload the screenshots. Here's the build up to that first trip.


    Walked back into town and started trading with the villagers. The librarian was selling Mending books! I couldn't get one, but I did trade some paper to lock them in.




    I expanded my crop farm to increase output. Gardening is probably my favorite thing to do in Minecraft. I also found out baby zombies will run straight through berry bushes. Maybe it's because of the trap doors. They'd die on their own if I stood atop the doors.



    I repaired my tools, gathered some coal for future uses, and went back for another round of trading. This librarian is awesome. He also sells Looting II. :D



    Sometime later I set out on my first excursion with the hopes of finding a lava pool. I did not come across anything, but I did get a nice view of my little homestead as I was heading back. I'm always very comforted by that soft glow in the distance when traversing the dangerous wilderness in the middle of the night.



    The next morning I set out again and spotted a sunken ship not far from home. I found a lot of goodies but was happiest with the bamboo.



    The next day I went back to trading. Normally I'd only bother with some farmers and a cleric at this stage of the game, but this time around I wanted to gear up before visiting the nether so I leveled up an armorer.



    I also prepared my future toolsmith.



    Sometime later I decided to use my treasure map as I continued my search for lava. I followed it for a bit and ended up at the very ship I found it in. The buried treasure had been just a short swim away all along! :(



    My search for surface lava continued as I headed out in one final direction. I didn't find any but I did stumble across some wolves, and a little flower biome.




    By now it was becoming pretty clear I wasn't going to be finding any surface lava anytime soon, so I took some of the diamonds I found in the village and set out to find some underground. It took me a while but eventually I got what I'd been looking for.



    By the time I finally surfaced everything in my farm was fully grown. I harvested everything I could and headed out for one last round of trading.



    My toolsmith turned out to be very handy as my diamond pickaxe really needed replacing.



    I threw a little food party before heading out for the nether. :P



    Then finally there it was... My nether portal.

    posted a message on What does YOUR username's seed look like?

    That's a nice seed. Savanna's, plains, and deserts are great starting biomes. They have very good visibility, are easy to traverse, and can spawn a lot of animals and monsters.


    Mine is AstralMagic. It is highly unremarkable. :P


    The spawn point is your ordinary Minecraft forest.



    To the north there is a taiga with two mountains visible in the distance



    To the southwest there is another mountain, and some plains a bit west of that.



    There's a snowy taiga to the east, and a tundra to the southeast.



    As I was uploading this I realized I could have used Optifine to get a better view of my surroundings, but I'm too lazy to go back and redo the screenshots. :lol: If there's anything of interest in the distance it'll remain a mystery.

    It depends on your difficulty settings. On Hard there is a 100% conversion rate, on Normal it's 50%, and on Easy it's 0%.

    If you want your villagers to be turned into zombie villagers every time you have to change your difficulty to hard.

    Good luck! :)

    posted a message on My quest to the nether

    Edit: Please correct my grammar wherever you can. I suck at writing, english is not my first language, I barely get any sleep, and I'm always multi-tasking so I am bound to make a huge amount of mistakes. I'm always looking to improve myself though, so any help will be greatly appreciated.


    This is my new world. My ultimate goal is to go to the nether and see all the new stuff that's been added.


    I know about things like netherite, piglins, striders, the boar creatures, the bastions, and the biomes; but I have intentionally kept myself in the dark as much as I could to get a fresh experience. I haven't looked at any new items, I don't know anything about all the new flora, what those red vines do, or what that blue fire is for.


    So I'm going to be documenting some of the things I do. I'm probably going to mess up a lot as I don't want to bring up the wiki.


    So anyway... This save is named "Astria".



    FIRST DAY:


    I looked at my surroundings. To the east was an ocean, and to the west, not far from spawn, a village!



    I immediately started looting the place. Found a lot more stuff than I was expecting.



    The village is beautiful and has a ton of workshops. It has 2 blacksmiths, a library, and a church, among other things.





    I found a promising cave right next to the village but the sun started to set before I could get mining. I slept through the first night to keep the villagers safe.



    SECOND DAY:


    I headed back down to the cave and mined iron until I hit a dead end. Made a full set of iron armor and then started heading west as the day was nearing its end. I want to be far from the village as I want to stay up long enough to get some phantoms to spawn.



    SECOND NIGHT:


    I hadn't walked for very long when I stumbled across a ravine. Before exploring it I walked down a nearby cave to gather some more iron.

    As I was putting away some stuff into chests I decided to just settle down here and make this my base of operations.

    Eventually I made my way down the ravine and was becoming pretty disillusioned when I spotted something along one of the walls...



    THIRD DAY:


    As the dark of night began to fade I caught a glimpse of a dungeon right above me. I broke in to find a spider spawner and some goodies.

    Afterwards I spent the day cutting down trees to make room for my crop farms. This is going to be a lovely place to live in.



    THIRD NIGHT:


    I go around lighting up the perimeter and killing stuff. I'm trying to figure out how everything will be set up. My goal is to start trading with the villagers so I can get ahold of some decent equipment.



    4TH, 5TH, & 6TH DAYS:


    Nothing particularly noteworthy happened. My farms are coming along nicely and I got a few membranes. I'm hoping to start trading soon and maybe set out to find a lava pool somewhere.



    I leave you with an image of the sixth night. I was standing there, contemplating the beauty of the forest that lies right outside my garden, just enjoying the calmness...

    Quote from EditName»

    Using simple names would probably be the smart thing to do. Maybe my problem is that I try to come up with something fancy for every world I make. :lol:
    Quote from LoRaM100»

    Sounds like a good way to keep everything in order. I'm going to start naming my disposable worlds in this format. What I've been doing until now is discarding them asap to avoid clutter, but that shouldn't be a problem with tidy names like those.
    Quote from Jancrash»

    I did not remember FNG. It really is an awesome site.


    Wish I could name worlds as well as you. "Elcionne", "Astria", and "Akkyn" all sound hella cool. :o I can spend hours trying to come up with cool names like those with no success.


    P.S.

    I like to have my world name and world seed be the same. Went with Astria and found diamonds in a village chest just a few steps away from spawn. :lol:
