    I think I'll just put half slabs, try to make it look like a subway or something. Just to confirm, they can't spawn on the actual tracks, right?


    Yeah, they can. Which is one of the major problems about nether rails.

    Can you explain anything about your server? Any rules, any plugins, anything at all?

    Make a giant wool dinosaur or a giant wool dragon. Coat his insides with smoothstone, then inside that put lava in there. Pimp out the rest of the area like a giant, dark, moody cave or lair.

    Then make a minecart track and cart Villagers into the dinosaur/dragon's mouth, where they will be sacrificed in it's lava innards to appease the great beast.

    posted a message on Some help with understanding snapshots.
    1. My understanding on this is that Jeb and Dinnerbone are more focused on making, big, good updates instead of Notch's style of updating that were much more common but added very little in each one.
    2. From my understanding, all you have to do is replace your current minecraft.jar with the one you've downloaded for the snapshot.
    3. No. However, depending on the snapshot you might want to load new chunks to get some of the new terrain features, such as carrots and potatoes appearing in jungles.
    4. There are drawbacks for snapshots - most of the time they're buggier than the regular game. Jeb's using the Snapshots as pretty much a public bugtest, as well as showing the new features they're adding.

    posted a message on new server! enter!
    Well, thanks for being specific. What plugins are there? What is there on the server, what are the server rules, etc. All that should be in your post, it will probably make it much better looking for most people here.

    (Sheesh, not being specific is like an epidemic here on the MinecraftForums)

    posted a message on Fire. Will this be a good distance?
    I don't think so. But, you might want to do some testing with it in a circumstance where, should it work, it wouldn't burn your giant wooden structures down.

    posted a message on What are some Helpful structures
    Uhm... a crafting bench is a helpful structure. It's made by placing four wooden planks into your inventory crafting grid, arranged into a square.
    You really should be more specific, as it can make this so much easier for us all.

    One thing I always use that no-one thinks is worth it is vines. Everyone always thinks ladders are better.
    Saddles, too. Now with the carrot on a stick, they're so much better. PIGGY STEEDS OF JUSTICE!

    IMO, the Wither needs some serious changes to his attacking methods, AI, and spawning methods. With only one (impeccably accurate) attack, he's a glorified gear check. I've seen better bosses from games made 25 years ago.

    Is he powerful? Yes. Is he difficult? No.


    It's better than the Ender Dragon, at the least. That's a step in the right direction.

    I believe they can spawn on slabs and stairs now too. Rejoice!


    Nah, only the upside down ones. Good ol' fashioned regular half slabs are still safe.

    Other than halfslabs, the only way to make the piggies stop spawning is turning to peaceful, as I recall.
    You could use glass, leaves or another transparent block over your railroad so nothing can get into the way, though. You don't take suffocation damage from transparent blocks. Also, it doesn't impede your movement in the cart.

    posted a message on Question about netherportals in the Overworld
    Yeah, those are waay to close.
    Besides, it's like 150 blocks or so between the two in the overworld, why not just make a rail line connecting them in the overworld?

    I don't have pictures, but soul sand with wart growing on it complements nicely with Mycelium and Mushrooms, if you've found a Mushroom Biome.

    Yeah, although level 20 is really easy to come by, you can get level 30 just mining coal. lol.

    I would do something like, if you got like iron tools within 1 hour of game, then it comes out. Or something like that.



    Well, the Wither is really powerful. I doubt that getting iron tools within an hour means you'd be ready to beat his face in. Maybe it should come out of Portals, like Zombie Pigmen do, but rarer. Normally if you've made a Portal, you have at least some diamond. But in circumstances like this, if you die from it, it should leave, kinda like the Eye of Cthulhu from Terraria. Make it a bit fairer for weaker players.

    posted a message on lava in my slime farm
    If you drop sand or gravel over the lava, they'll fall and fill up the whole pool, removing the lava and leaving some easy-to-clean-up materials.
