    posted a message on Parkour help, is there an easy way to do this jump? been going at it forever with 0 success

    Not clearly defined, but I'm assuming that the jump has a 2 block gap and is at head-level when standing on the stone block.


    It's difficult to explain in words, but I will do so anyways.


    Since it's a two block jump, you cannot walk jump it.


    I would say, start at the opposite diagonal end to that of the ladder and sprint off until you hit the edge where you jump off. While in the air, you should strafe your way around to look at the land. Kind of like a jump in the formation of a C. When you are one block away from the ladder area, you should stop sprinting to slow the character down and hold the W to try and cling on the ladder.


    Skip to 1:40 for a similar jump to that one (I know it's Bedrock Edition, but it's applicable).

    posted a message on How has servers like Hypixel remained with a high player count while others (Mineplex, Hivemc) have lost players over time.

    God, I can write a book about this...


    Hypixel is one of the most notorious Minecraft servers there is, and for that, servers that are ranked "up there" usually are known to have a reputable history to their name, good mini games/games and no pay-to-win backbone.


    Servers like Hypixel don't show up over night normally, and usually require the server to be senior to that of your average Minecraft Forums-advertised server. Around 5+ years with numerous Minecraft YouTubers covering the server. Hypixel covers all of the above, but that alone does not cause a server to thrive.


    The minecraft community plays a major role in the support and development of the server, as well as the future when regarding the player-base : staff relationship. The staff and the content they produce and enforce over must be in the interests of the community (hype). Servers with large hype will have a large quantity of players flocking into the server, but after a while, if the minigame/game that's causing the hype is getting boring, lacking updates and bug fixes, or straight out just has too many hackers, this can kill the player-base motivation as no longer does the community see the server as reliable and the minigame/game worth the time or effort to achieve.


    The servers you referred to are mostly based in the Bedrock Edition realm, they may have branched out to Java Edition as well (like BrokenLens), but the cross-platform play between Java Edition and Bedrock Edition is not reliable (especially in combat might I add).

    Why does this matter?


    The servers you gave as examples define the conflict of Bedrock Edition servers vs Java Edition servers.

    Bedrock Edition servers are pretty much garbage imo. Cosmetics are a little too over the top and the Minecoin system is really difficult to manage. Most players prefer to just use PayPal and know exactly how much they are paying; however, with Minecoins, this system makes calculations a little blurry and the constant need to refill on Minecoins with packs is an unnecessary added step. Hackers are also prevalent on the Bedrock Edition servers.


    Especially on Mineplex, YouTubers even admit that they've hacked on Mineplex before as a joke. Even going as far as saying, "Yes, I'm hacking on Mineplex, but yet again, who hasn't?"

    The respect and reputation for Mineplex in a single sentence describes one of the biggest flaws in Mineplex. That being, poor staff performance in preventing these hackers from thriving, no anti-cheat system that is reliable and the poor relationship and viewpoint of the Mineplex server as a whole.


    Back in the day, Bedrock Edition servers were awesome. Cross-play wasn't a thing, which made everyone fight a fair match on the same platform (No Windows 10 vs Pocket Edition) cosmetics and ranks didn't give a pay-to-win advantage (as much) and hackers were a rare sight to see. Nowadays, the platform (BE) itself is now infested with hackers, glitches and OP ranks.


    When I refer to these ranks, I mean, that you literally can't do [email protected] without buying some kind of "UberVIP". In Lifeboat, you have to buy UberVIP to literally invite your friend to your Skyblock Island, but in Hypixel, you can do this for FREE. I understand the struggles of Bedrock Edition server where they cannot refuse to update their Minecraft version to the latest release, whereas servers like Hypixel remain at the 1.8 update but allow 1.8+ to play, but it does get really frustrating to just play on the server and see "Oh, you need to buy UltraVIP to chat here".


    I can ramble on and on about each and every server and destroy them with their own flawed concepts, but I will restrain to do so since I know these people work hard to even maintain such a server with a dying playerbase and stagnant/declining funds.


    Here the summary of it:

    - Java Edition servers have better quality, minigames, plugins, anticheats, clients and cosmetics/ranks than Bedrock Edition servers
    - No Java Edition player would ever play on a Bedrock Edition server (even if there's a "crossplay" system) unless they are experimenting or hacking

    - Java Edition has the top ranking servers in Minecraft history over than that of Bedrock Edition

    - Hackers, glitches, dupes and rule-breakers are not handled quickly on Bedrock Edition servers to Java Edition servers (there's literally a top ranked BE server that has not fixed the same Skywars dupe glitch in MONTHS - despite being "active").

    - Mechanics in Java Edition are more reliable
    - Cosmetics in Bedrock Edition are horribly overworked

    - Maturity difference between Java Edition communities to that of Bedrock Edition Communities (Java Edition has less brain-dead knots than Bedrock Edition)
    - Java Edition servers have the option to stay behind on favorable Mod clients/versions for stability reasons and mechanic-reasons, whereas Bedrock Edition servers HAVE to update or will face losing their entire player-base completely - which leads to stability issues, glitches and plugins breaking

    - In case you haven't noticed, the probable reason as to why Minecraft had the 5 star servers implemented was because players (little kids) didn't know how to join public servers with the IP, so Minecraft added 5 default servers to add easier access for those youngsters

    - To join a specific server, you need a server IP AND a Port Address whereas in Java Edition, all you need is a version of JVE and the server IP.

    - More YouTubers play on Java Edition servers (more free advertisement for these servers).

    - On Bedrock Edition, some servers (like Lifeboat) have the /report and /hacker system incapable or reporting anyone. Sometimes it goes as far as not even registering the command. You can also report yourself as well LOL..


    A ton more..


    Relating that to the dying player base, the community loses player base when people lose faith in the server or when minigames are removed due to technical issues, which leads to sparking outrages and unmotivated players. I saw a forums where admins had to start banning people for even complaining or making any posts regarding the removal of a minigame. Admins there even admitted that they acknowledged the fact that their player base was dying and that they were tired of hearing that reference about the server. Bedrock Edition servers seem to have decreasing progression in entertainment. Developers became desperate to see a minigame that would bring back the numbers they were seeing a few years back that they even started copying the Hypixel Skyblock idea into Bedrock Edition. Although not as developed as Hypixel's, they added similar mechanics to that of Hypixel or even just only added the Skyblock part to the server in hopes that the success would reciprocate to their server. (It hasn't done so to the extent of Hypixel). The player base back then consisted of a LOT of youngsters, but as time went on, they wised-up and saw that Java Edition was a better platform. Others quit Minecraft forever (seeing it not appealing anymore). Think of it as a player base that grows up only to leave it for the other edition community. Bedrock Edition servers have it rough with minimal community support in development to that of Java Edition's flexibilities. It's all cool, until it's not. + all of the reasons above (and more).

    posted a message on Thank you Minecraft for my friends

    The Minecraft Community has changed significantly.


    I too, miss the old days where things just felt so different. I too long for the nostalgic heart breaking, passion-seeking and utmost satisfaction me.

    It's all different now and times are moving fast. Before I knew it, those summer nights and winter days of fun with friends and a community that was unique were years ago.


    No longer do I see my friends that had joined long ago or the people I met along the way on our adventures.


    My only hope is that people in the future cherish their moments with the game, where friendships are not sailed and the sense of comfort and hopefulness are not diminished.

    I too agree, the feelings that are longed for are still there, but it will not remerge unless something is done to spark it back again. Some things will never return or revert to the way they were, but what matters is what we can bring back and cherish before it too can no longer continue. And here with my friends in mind, I hope I can play with again.


    It is strained and some way or another, we all have atmosphere or feeling we miss, so let us find it and bring it back.

    posted a message on Looking for server ideas heres 1 that may make your server famous

    Yes, that's an excellent idea.


    If a server owner can add some more ideas to the table and fix the previous bugs it was experiencing, then it would be pretty popular, but it wouldn't be as popular as the skyblock takeover that Hypixel has created.


    Skyblock is the meta right now, so much so that people outside of Minecraft have made their own versions of skyblock.


    Even Bedrock Edition servers have implemented Skyblock in hopes of activity, but honestly, it's not going to change much because of the poor quality these Bedrock Edition server provide.


    It's not a bad idea, but Skyblock is in the most popular gamemode right now and until it dies down or people start feeling more nostalgic, it won't be at its full potential.

    Wall minigames are not at its peak as well. Just some thoughts to note, but quality and fun is everything.

    posted a message on Cannon Fix So Cannons Work in 1.12.2 ( Any Plugins )

    Depends on what type of cannons you are using and who it was made from.


    As you know, you have to check if they're fixing the error or if it was discontinued. Or it might be an error on your part.


    For now, let's start with what cannons you are using and who the creator is from.

    I still think Amplified is still a fun feature to test out in creative with builds and survival to endure extremes.


    Yes, like I mentioned on the previous post on this thread, Amplified is not great, but it can be depending on how you use it or perceive its uses.

    Good job with the sources. ^_^

    posted a message on Is the terrain boring? (Updated 6/5/13 - 1.7 to improve the biome or not??!!)

    Wow, I hope your claim hits more views, but we also have to recognize that there's an amplified feature. Although not really great (at all for lower end PCs), it'll still provide the wide varieties of mountains and terrains you'd find in pre 1.8.


    Overall, yes, I agree with your claim.

    Maybe they'll be adding it in 1.17 where they finally add the cave update (hopefully), so the update would be perfect as this focuses on the overworld terrain and generations.

    posted a message on Need suggestions for my base

    I got an idea.


    See this Clash of Clans level 6 laboratory?


    You can add those purple glass portions of the lab to the base of the structure to add texture.


    The result should look similar to a woman's hair brush but will look cool with the right materials and aura.


    You can also add obsidian spikes to the base of the structure to avoid the base looking plain and make your base look truly epic. Hypixel Skyblock's End island is and example of what you can do at the base of the structure (and the island looks totally metal btw, props to the Hypixel Builder crew for that monstrous build - as usual).


    You can also add ring to the long tube of your base's tower to differentiate the sizes of the tube and make the structure look beefier and sturdier with more detail to offer. Rings that don't touch the base of the tower tube will also look dope as well.


    If you know how to and can do so, add cosmic bridges (done with an assortment of purple, white, back, magenta and pink stained glass) that gradually lead to each of the cells of your base. Reply to me if you need more clarifications. :)

    posted a message on What is good mod for spawning a random structure of my? please help?

    Of your what?

    Also, try not to sound so desperate, it deters people from wanting to help you out and can also make it difficult for people like myself who want to help you but cannot help you due to insufficient amounts of clarifications.


    I can think of a few mods that can generate random structures based on chunk regions and biome, but I am not sure exactly what it is you want.


    Reply to my message with clarifications so I can know what exactly you need help with.

    posted a message on List of items in a map

    You can install World Edit and select the region and get a block count of the selected blocks that you want to measure.


    You can also do this with a few command blocks. If you were to execute a command in a command block with trackoutput enabled (the x/o button) you can see what the command did.

    You could use the command: /fill x1 y1 z1 x2 y2 z2 minecraft:air 0 replace minecraft:blockname -1


    If you run this command and set the coordinates to the house's location and know the block name and data value, you could easily count blocks. The line below the command should say how many blocks it replaced. Just be sure to load a backup of the world since you are replacing blocks with air.


    The method might be outdated since I haven't touched on this topic for some time, but that's how I recall some methods of achieving your desired goal.
