    posted a message on Spawn on an island next to an ocean monument

    -7091836247214626736


    Build a megabase that has everything under one roof, including a guardian farm! As a bonus, there's a mine shaft under the ocean monument.


    Most of the small island is in range of the elder guardian's mining fatigue spell, making it extra challenging. You will need to visit a nearby island to get a cow for milk.


    If you build a nether portal at or very near spawn you will enter the nether about 50 steps due north of a nether fortress, and around 100 steps from a blaze spawner to make a very convenient blaze grinder for XP for your mending items.

    posted a message on what kind of server do you want to see?

    You know what would be REALLY nice is a server for honest-to-goodness adults, say 40 and older only. I'm a dedicated senior citizen Minecrafter, but I don't enjoy playing with 14 year olds. It's a whole different experience with people who are actually mature. Don't get me wrong, kids playing Minecraft is great, and I play with my own grandchildren, but kids are, ... well, kids. And they don't always play well with grownups.

    posted a message on 1.14 spawn next to a pillager outpost

    For those who like their excitement to start without delay, I created a random hardcore world and found myself spawning in within spitting distance of a pillager outpost. Being as I am playing hardcore, I dug myself into the side of a mountain right away to make a hiding place. The spawn point is in dark oak forest.

    The screenshot shows the spawn point as a white wool pillar.

    posted a message on Diamonds too rare in version 1.13.1

    I've been playing on a 1.13.1 vanilla server for the last few weeks and I have never had so many diamonds in my inventory. I have almost six stacks using a fortune 3 pick and mining now and then between building sessions. Most of those diamonds were found while clearing out a large area down to Y=6 looking for slime chunks.


    (And for the 99th time: Strip mining is stripping off the surface layer to remove minerals right near ground level. Wikipedia says "Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit (the overburden) are removed, in contrast to underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral is removed through shafts or tunnels." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface_mining The word you're looking for is "Branch Mining", not "strip Mining.")

    posted a message on Breaking Bedrock

    If you are in a solo game you can click on "Open to LAN" and select enable cheats. Then go back in the game, set /gamemode creative, break the offending block, then go back to survival and continue as usual.


    Yes, it is cheating, but it seems like you have a genuine reason to bend the rules a little.

    Sand drop marking as an alternatibe to f3 (for those so inclined) :>:


    Would prefer a flat version, but mining and moving the ribs still leaves the technique faster than mining & placing the whole thing for 'big' builds. (Cobble bocks preventing the lava sources from flowing toward the outside and secondary scaffolding allowing placement of water beneath those cobble seems liek it would work at some expense in complexity. [Not tested.] )



    To make a smooth wall, you can make a 3-wide slot at the top and fill every space on one side with lava, then put water on the opposite side. That takes a whole lot more lava buckets, though! Although if you do it in sections, it could be done for fewer buckets of lava.


    On edit: Just for the record, I tried it out and it does work:

    posted a message on Should I restart?
    Quote from MrStealYoKills»

    In my current survival world, I am lagging tremendously because of 1.13 changes. In this world, I have many things such as an Ilmango gold farm, a water-powered mob farm, an enderman farm, countless shulker shells, and 5 or 6 full beacons. Now despite all this, I don't have the motivation to play in this world as it is tremendously laggy. Now do I start a new world, or do I wait for 1.13 to be actually optimized?


    Are you using Optifine? If not, give it a try to speed up your world.

    Are you using 1.13 or 1.13.1? ... 1.13.1 is supposedly more optimized.

    Try this one from docm77. Its the simplest I've ever seen and seems to work fine (I tested it with 1.13 but not the latest update)



    That's awesome! It works. :) Thanks.

    I can sympathize with you. I've built AFK fish farms since 1.7 and I've NEVER gotten one to work. Never. I must be a real fish farm jinx or something!

    posted a message on How to find my seed
    Quote from Guardian1816»

    trying to build up in my world, but I cannot find slimes on any regular basis and its really holding me back. "/seed" does not work and its not on the "F3" menu. Im guessing its very easy because there is absolutely nothing recent on the internet on how to find it. Can somebody hold my hand and tell me idiot proof instructions on how to find it.



    Are you running the JAVA edition? Solo or on a server? If "/seed" doesn't work then either you are on a server and do not have permission to do commands, or your game is seriously broken. "/seed" always works if you are on solo, or on a server and have permission to do commands.


    If you are on a server and do not have permission to do commands then you are out of luck. There is no way to know your seed, and that is as it should be. Knowing your seed on a server allows you to cheat by finding things (like slime blocks and monster spawners) the easy way, and finding things the easy way on a server is a big no-no. That's what makes servers more interesting; you can't (or shouldn't be able to) cheat.

    posted a message on Not sure what to do.

    You definitely need to build a portal and go to the nether. There are so many important things there. You can't do brewing without blaze rods, you can't build comparators, observer blocks, or daylight sensors without nether quartz. And blocks of nether quartz make awesome building blocks.


    Also, you can't get beacons without killing withers, and you can't spawn withers without wither skulls which are only found in the nether. Plus there's soul sand and netherwort you should have for a netherwort garden (you need that for brewing and making dark nether brick), magma blocks, magma cream, nether brick, which is an awesome building material, and etc. etc.


    (Note: The game spells it nether wart, but in real life botany and herbology there are many kinds of "worts", but never "warts", so they need to fix that in the game.)

    posted a message on List of small survival island seeds with oak tree and sugar cane for Minecraft 1.13!
    Quote from MrGrimmmz»

    I prioritize oak trees because of the apples, for curing zombie villagers. You can deal with the long branch growth issue by putting a cobblestone block above the sappling, at the 10th block from the ground.


    Excellent point. I overlooked the need for apples. :)


    In my defense, I don't usually play survival islands.

    Cool list.


    If I had my way I'd find an island with one birch tree (they are easier to farm because they never turn into big tangled messes like oak trees sometime do.).

    I'd also want sugar cane, but I would add pumpkins to my wish list since they are an easier light source than sea lanterns or glowstone.
