    posted a message on What scared you in Minecraft most.
    Building over lava lakes in the nether. I was on a server once and we had just recently updated to 1.6. There must've been a glitch with the plugins and 1.6 or something because I fell off my blocks while bridging over a lava lake and fell far down into the orange abyss. That happened two times in the same day and I just rage quitted.

    It's so strange. The creeper can't form a path with carpet alone but yet it still blocks their vision. I'm definitely going to have to experiment more with carpets. They seem to be very interesting.

    well, this is a little thing called "a game."

    just right click him to make him sit, he won't go anywhere.

    No, the whole point is to hide the cat not to make it stay.

    Spiders. For the sole reason that they have a smile every time they're attacking you. Even if they have invisiblity you can still see their mouth! Those smug little...

    No problem, F3 is mostly used for basically checking your cords and your framerate.

    And sooooo much more. It starts getting more and more useful when you get into the technical side of minecraft.

    posted a message on Looking for advice to get my kid started
    I honestly think you should just let him have access to the minecraft wiki and find out things for himself. That's what I did when I first got into the game and it was really fun. I would be reading about 1 thing on there and then I looked at the related things, clicked on those, and got even more immersed. Texture packs might be something interesting to try. I can see how just changing the textures a bit would make a 4 year-old feel like he's playing a whole new game. Try not to go through texture packs too frequently though.

    I'm mostly just good with the technical side of minecraft like redstone.

    posted a message on Can someone explain the creeper/cat relationship to me?
    I'm incredibly confused how creepers detect cats now after doing some testing on a creative world. I tried putting all transparent blocks I could think of in the block the cat was but the creeper still couldn't detect the cat. Then I tried carpet because mobs don't detect carpets as a block.(or so I was told) I had the carpet floating 1 block above the cat and had the cat under it. The creeper still didn't react at all to the cat. So can someone tell me how this works?

    Quote from InfoTeddy

    Then let’s attach sand blocks to each other and moving pistons to each other and mobs to each other and evil squids to each other and dropped items to each other and igni…!

    There’s still a reason why you can only attach leashes to mobs.


    He's still just talking about only minecarts. What's the reason exactly why you can only attach leads to mobs?

    Skin: Could I have a box skin? Basically a skin made out of a packaging box or boxes with some of the symbols like fragile, this way up, etc. Just anything that gets the idea across. My current attempt at making that skin is here. http://atm397.imgur.com/all/

    Ah, I'm a bit of both. I haven't been playing long enough to remember the time when flowerpots were improvised though.

    Improvising is humorous and a bit of a brain teaser. Like using a fence post and a pressure plate to make a table, an iron block to make a bar fridge, a cauldron to make a sink or toilet, step to make a chair, black wool block for a TV, fence post for a shower head. I want real blocks of these types so that functionality can be included. ie- you can sit on a chair, open fridges/cupboards, have a table which doesn't "compress" when you stand next to it. Taps would be nice too.

    So, I had fun improvising but I want more real household blocks.

    For me it just takes the fun out of it when you have everything pre-designed for you but I guess it's different for everyone.

    I personally liked the large oceans. I can live with them being a bit smaller though. Any info on how much they're decreasing them in size?

    The old flower pots aah the good times. They looked nice hanging out your windows too. Another example is that iron blocks used to be anvils, but now there are actually anvils. Yep you're right.

    There are so many examples. I loved having to use jack o' lanterns and pistons to make lights turn on and off.

    Well, refined items like flowerpots can also be used to allude to other types of non-existent items in the exact same way that we've been using pressure plates and stair blocks to allude to things like chairs and tables. I like the new items, as they are relatively subtle and creatively malleable. There will always be things we still don't have, but each new item gives us a new shape or color to make pretend with.

    It's like a puzzle. The more you develop it the less fun it becomes because the farther you go the more you know what it is and the less imagination you can have. There will almost always be new things to allude to with the new items we get but the farther we go down that road the less we can imagine things that we want to imagine.

    Well, it's a 'sandbox' game, so think of it like a literal sandbox full of all kinds of toys, buckets and shovels. They're all readily available for you to use but you are also quite free to put aside those you have no interest in.

    Nobody is going to want to play without something that makes it easier when it's staring them in the face. All the other kids in the sandbox use the toys making it a disadvantage when playing on servers. I want to use the old toys but that means that everyone else is far ahead of me and I don't want to be behind.
