    posted a message on 1.3.1 Lagging, server type lag on Singleplayer.. What?!
    I played for a couple hours before the update and ran smooth as butter. Soon as i update, there is more latency now, and i can no longer ride up my elevators anymore because of the latency. Performance is obviously taking a hit and has nothing to do with my machine. It is thier pathetic server code. I stopped playing SMP last year because their code was bad then, obviously nothing has improved, they just thrust it down single players throats. Having to run another machine to act as a server to play a single player game would be pretty stupid. Somebody at Mojang needs to pull their finger out, and then go hire somebody who understands network coding. Btw i do like thier other game improvements, too bad it is marred by my previous statement.

    Well there are elevators of various sorts already which i use heavily, so i don't see that as a priority. I think the MOD API is what will really make minecraft an even more massive success. They said it themselves, they don't stand a chance in competing with the MOD community in creative new features.

    Also i don't agree with others on this forum. I don't see Minecraft as a fantasy RPG game. Sure it has been given some elements of it, but i think it's really only a tiny part of the game. What Minecraft is really about is how the user use's the game's tools and resources to make unique and clever builds and gadgets.

    If it wasn't for redstone and repeaters and their clever applications, i probably would have trashed the game a long time ago.

    posted a message on Do you find playing on peaceful cheating?
    I guess if your goal is to win the internet and prove to the world how big your epeen is, playing on hardmode is the only way to play and everyone else is a coward :huh.gif: . I play the way i want to play, and it is a mix of peaceful, survival, and creative. I'm not worried about my epeen since i really don't give an expletive what anonymous interweb people think. I do like to share my experiences, but i'm not in competition with anyone.

    Also, i also use MCedit occassionally, especially when my world gets corrupted again. When i put a lot of effort into something, i don't care to lose it.

    They need to change the name of the block to glowglass, since it isn't stone.

    posted a message on Boat instantly killed me??
    Boats do not work fine, they are pathetic!. What boat would you ride on that has the durability of rice paper? Boats were a cool part of the game, now they are a travesty. Who cares if someone is using a boat to avoid fall damage? I loved using boats for the EATS system, now i can't because if the boat hits any current it's destroyed. Truly sad.

    Build in the sky over an ocean and just light up the caves directly below. You'll see a decent spawn rate.

    I had a mob spawner building with a giant spider crawling on the wall. I've since modified the structure so the spider doesn't exist anymore, but i did have a still of it from one of my vids. Hope this gives you some creative ideas.

    Spider on the wall.

    posted a message on Cave Spiders and mob 'vaters?
    The mobivator is not a good design for cave spiders. Check Ethos's newer videos on how he deals with cave spiders, he's made a gravity one that weakens them for easy killing and loot collection. Docm77 also has made a cool timed crusher to weaken them so you can one shot kill them for xp.

    I also added my own circuit design to Doc's setup, check that out ...

    posted a message on Navigating Ravines
    Another way to find a ravine is using a boat on an ocean biome and seeing them from above. Then just dive down and ride the water to the bottom. Then get ready to secure an area as a forward operating base and conquer.

    Here's a clue, host your own server and don't include anti-grief mods.
