    posted a message on Water bottles give saturation points

    Partial support. I really like the concept, but would prefer to have a brewable "sustenance" potion requiring some other resource, rather than just being able to use an endless water supply to perpetually buff saturation. Maybe brewed with apples since they are fairly common but only acquired randomly, and just have their standard 2 shanks of hunger restoration instead apply directly to saturation for a total of 4.4 saturation when consuming the potion. It should also be freely consumable, and not be tied to any concurrently consumed food items. I think your way is just a little too unnecessarily elaborate for most players to get into. Again I say: Partial support.

    posted a message on Paranormal activity (strange bugs)

    Passive mobs like villagers aren't supposed to despawn. Only "Monsters, bats, squids, ocelots, and hostile wolves" and chickens that originally spawn with jockeys on them. I guess you could always use a nametag on your farmer if you wanted to absolutely make sure that natural despawning isn't occurring.

    posted a message on Paranormal activity (strange bugs)

    If there are any moving pistons, low/slab overhangs or ceilings, water deeper than two blocks, or drops greater than 4 blocks in your autofarm then it is possible that the villager suffocated or drowned or repeatedly fell until it died. But it actually sounds like an error in how the location of entities are being recorded as you move around and world chunks are being loaded and unloaded. That was a big issue with animals - especially chickens - in versions prior to 1.6 (I think). Such a bug could explain a villager simply glitching into a wall and dying, and also multiple minecarts magically appearing on a track where only one had been placed. What version are you using? And did the cloned hopper minecarts also have identical inventories by any chance?

    posted a message on What Biome Do You Really Live In?

    A mix of temperate grassland and temperate coniferous forest, midway between a large mountain range and the Atlantic. So, like on the border of Plains and Taiga M, with more of the same to the north and south, Extreme Hills to the west, and Beach/Ocean/Deep Ocean farther to the east. It is often referred to as a "piedmont" or "foot hills" region.

    posted a message on How can I create a specific world generation key for my server?

    I'm pretty sure you could use MCEdit to combine the terrain from three different worlds into one world. I honestly have very little experience with the program, but I know there is some copy-pasting capability. Here's how I would go about doing it: Generate a world that you like with normal generation and another world with the "desert" superflat preset. Copy and paste a 4096x4096 area of desert from it into the normal world centered on spawn, or to whatever coords that you intend to change your world spawn to. Then create another custom superflat world with "desert" preset, but increase the elevation to whatever height that you want by adding more sand and/or sandstone layers to the preset, and change the biome ID to 130 (Desert M) so some small lakes will generate. Then just copy and paste a 2048x2048 area of that world into the center of the first lower-elevation desert that you pasted into the normal world. Then just check the borders of your central plateau to make sure there aren't any lakes on the edge, spilling down over the cliffs.


    One thing to note is that there are no naturally occurring sources of wood or food (except rotten flesh) in the desert, so surviving long enough to get across 2000 meters of desert is difficult and unlikely. Even if you give yourself (or other players if you're making a server) a few saplings, then finding the dirt to grow them in will still be a major challenge. You may also want to consider manually modifying the small lakes into oases with trees and whatnot, or finding some mods that will allow sugar cane to be used as sticks, or that modify dead shrubs to drop a few sticks, and just giving each player one wooden pickaxe before you send them into the wasteland.


    A mod with cactus armor would be a nice touch too.

    posted a message on Help with chickens in my zombie spawner XP farm.

    Perhaps a piston that you can manually trigger to push the chickens into the lava or crush them against the wall whenever they start clogging up the works. You could even use a simple redstone clock to have it push/crush every few minutes. You may lose some xp/drops either way, but it will keep things flowing.

    Very fun server so far, and seems really stable since the re-up. Everybody seems cool, but we definitely need some more players though. There's still a lot of unclaimed and unexplored areas. Basically like a fresh world - we're still hunting for jungle, mesa, ice spikes, mooshroom island, nether fortresses, and the strongholds.

    posted a message on BushGaming.com | Vanilla Survival | Whitelist

    Hey man. I'm down for some vanilla survival on a small mature server. I'm 34 years old, male, from North Carolina in the USA, and I've been playing since November 2012. I'm very experienced with Vanilla MC and Hexxit but haven't played much of either one lately, and I haven't played on a server since late last year or early this year maybe. I know the basic rules though (be cool, don't grief, don't steal, etc.) I'm a decent builder and a pretty good redstoner, and I typically try to be as friendly and helpful as I can - especially to newer players. Whitelist me and PM me the address if you think I'd make a good addition to your server.

    1. Name, Username, Gender, & Age: Max, MaxSinister, male, 34

    2. Time Zone/Country: UTC-5 (Eastern) USA

    3. Skype (if any): none

    4. Favorite parts of minecraft (and your talents in the game): I enjoy everything except extended trips into the Nether. I'm a decent builder, a fairly adept redstoner, a methodical miner, and a thorough explorer. I like helping other people out with their projects, working on community builds, and hopefully being friends with everybody on the server. I also like to go on extended wilderness treks if the rarer biomes haven't been discovered yet - especially if people have expressed a need for those resources.

    5. Do you agree to our rules? Absolutely. You'll find out pretty quick that I'm one of the most serious and trustworthy players around.

    Do nothing. The server owner is lying and manipulating you. Just an egomaniac on a power trip who thinks you're stupid and easily threatened.

    posted a message on 1.8 Mushroom Paradise (4 islands, stronghold, mineshaft)

    SEED: 4784359941204324434

    Normal Generation

    You spawn on the edge of the mainland near 500, 1000 in a taiga hills biome, but there are 4 mushroom islands in very close proximity


    There is a huge mushroom island almost PERFECTLY centered at 0,0


    and three more near:

    0, 700
    700, -700
    -400, 400


    the one at -400, 400 is my favorite (just travel northwest by boat - it's super easy to find)

    it has a small forest island nearly attached to it at -350, 350 (only separated by like 10 blocks)
    an awesome lagoon in a mycelium mountain valley at -600, 250 (seems like a fairly exotic place to live)
    two zombie spawners at -340, 450 and -330, 350 (I'll probably turn them into skelly and spider spawners)
    a mineshaft under it at -550, 320
    and a stronghold under it at -550, 410


    There are also several large cave systems and underground ravines with diamonds exposed in many areas

    I don't think there is a surface entrance but you will run into them as you go about your normal mining

    One thing to note about the stronghold is that a nearby lava fall will set the single library on fire immediately

    You may want to disable fire spread until you get that taken care of, but if not, enough bookshelves for your first enchanting room should remain - and it's not like leather (or food either) is going to be much of an issue with all the mooshrooms wandering around


    I haven't done much exploring yet, so any other goodies are a mystery.

    And sorry my map doesn't have ocean monument locations. I haven't got that version of AMIDST yet.


    Enjoy

    Uh-kay-shyah (the "cia" part at the end is all one syllable, kind of like you're saying "shyeah right whatever" and not "see ya later")

    posted a message on Why Grief?

    Many humans are inherently sociopathic, and total anonymity and a lack of immediately-recognizable consequences is more freedom than they can resist abusing. And by "immediately-recognizable" I mean that the long-term, cumulative effects which those behaviors often have on the real world are rarely ever considered by such people. I have personally always maintained my respect for the emotions of the real people represented by the flickering pixels on my monitor, because I understand that the scope of their influence extends into a much smaller, realer, and unescapable world containing far more people whose fragile emotions are often the determining factors for a wide variety of negative behaviors with very real consequences. The universe is a closed system, and everything affects everything. Virtual malevolence spreads just as quickly and has the capacity to create just as many distrustful people as any real betrayal can, and there has only ever been a thin veneer of trust which holds all of human society together. Maintaining that unspoken agreement properly is the difference between mutual progress or reciprocal destruction. Remember even your minor contributions to both when you look to place blame for your own suffering or gratitude for your prosperity.

    posted a message on A zero building "village"
    A weird seed for sure. It appears that the bonus chest does not spawn if the option is enabled either. The items aren't even scattered across the ground as they do in most cases where the chest is in conflict with another block. And again, there seems to be nothing that should interfere with its generation either. I might have to play on this seed for a while to see if there are any other naturally generated chests or structures missing for no reason.
