    posted a message on Metallurgy - Putting the "Mine" back in "Minecraft"!
    Found a pretty funny bug.

    Turns out pulverized iron is an extremely versatile material. Can use it to craft buckets, shears, copper tools, silver tools and electrum tools.

    Conflict? Averted?
    According to a recent live interview. Notch has allegedly stated that his 'skylands' realm will be a 'dreamworld' type place.
    The source is here but it is in swedish, and what i know of the interview's content i have heard from other sources. (such as reddit)

    The graphics are so very cliche, though! I want to love this game...I just can't stand that character sprite.


    Don't worry those sprites are placeholders. They were from ff6.

    posted a message on How do I mine VERY large amounts of one mineral?
    let's get the link to a very recent thread.http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1020&t=205782

    This bug is still applicable and as you can see from the screenshots in that thread.



    And to get very large amounts of one mineral? I'd recommend efficient branch mining in the sw quadrant for diamonds and gold and spelunking (if applicable) for iron. it's best to branch mine at layer twelve so that lava doesn't interfere.

    i do believe spiders cant climb sandstone? A layer of sandstone 4 up wouldnt hurt.


    Oh god not this again. Spiders can climb all materials, there were some pathfinding bugs (like the torch slowsand example) but attacking the spider would cause it to charge up the wall at you regardless.

    It'd be nice if Piratebay would actually add all the discoveries in the 'beta 1.5 discoveries and discussion' thread.

    People can always check the wiki (even though it is slightly inaccurate)

    I'd play Dwarf Fortress more.


    I would never have started playing dwarf fortress. Gotta start working on my river flood system now.

    posted a message on Growing Grass underground isn't working how it should...
    The chance for grass to grow is entirely random. my advice is to give it more chances to grow by expanding the staircase and making it bigger, Which in turn gives a greater chance for a grass block to pop up which further increases the speed at which the grass spreads.

    Or you can use a piston (if you have the mod installed.)

    [piston] (facing downward)
    :Glass:
    :grass:

    every time the piston activates, the grass block is pushed 1 block downward, simply put another block in the path of the piston and it will keep pushing. (to the piston 16 block max of course). the glass is there so that the grass doesn't revert into dirt.

    you will need to do some extra digging / constructing platforms to build the piston device though.

    Nah that just means they are charging at you.

    They'd headbutt you if they didn't explode.

    Quote from Marc_Hawke »
    Yeah, that's Magic. Another carnival ride to go along with the roller coasters.

    Get 5 people in the carts. You'd have a line on your server.


    But how do you ensure that they only ride the cart for their fair share of time?
