    Well I'm fairly proud of the reed farm design I made, but I was wondering if anyone found a more efficient design, so as such, I present my farm design.

    Replace reeds with trees and water with torches for the tree farm design. This is the most efficient design I've found so far on an infinite scale.

    Would be nice if anyone had any improvements to add.

    Don't worry I have a five step plan for fixing this.

    #1 Hire a computer expert & put nitroglycerin in mutant pigs
    #2 Have the expert find the location of the script kiddies
    #3 Slowly place the creepers in front of the house & ring the doorbell, then run like ****
    #4 ???
    #5 (More) Profit

    Anything is fine in SSP, like I spawned myself 64 glass just because I didn't want to tear up my perdy beach.

    In SMP though, anything at all that gives you an unfair advantage is cheating, as you are affecting other people aswell.

    No Notch doesn't even see it. Your money goes through paypal which is absolutely secure in such a way that no living human being will see your card number.

    posted a message on Ghasts and normal creatures enemies?
    Well Skellies and such will be spawning in hell aswell, so I'd assume no.


    Also Ghast would own skelly in like four seconds.

    I like the idea of presents, though wrapping papers might complicate things.

    posted a message on So if existing saves will be affected by the update
    Portals will be player built

    If they're added in as naturally occurring objects, then you'll have to go generate a new chunk to find one which means exploring, and thus they won't spawn inside your home.

    posted a message on Idea to balance portals
    14 obby = ~6.5-7 minutes to mine.

    One portal in this situation = A shitton of ghasts and equally evil hell monsters in your home from a greifer.

    7 minutes isn't too long to wait to do a great job at griefing.

    posted a message on Can someone explain Portals for me?
    #1 Yes, when you make a portal in the real world, another one is made in the coressponding spot in hell.

    #2 Yes, You make a 4x3x1 hollow cube of obsidian and light the opening on fire.

    That Notch just might be leaving out some very very vital piece of information for anyone in the update?

    Like what if ghasts actually spawn as 1x1 blocks but grow to 4x4 only after destroying everything around them?

    Being an Atheist

    I don't have an issue with fantastical things in a fantasy game.
    I don't have issues with having a sky-world
    I don't have issues with that sky-world being peaceful

    I do have issues with having this sky-world be both named after, and straight after specifically Christian doctrine.
    I do have an issue with the reasoning behind adding this be to finish a specifically Christian picture of Heaven/Hell
    I do have issues with people saying "Get over it" to other atheists when they mention that the game is not specifically a Christian game, and that hell is not the Christian hell. Minecraft is, and should remain a purely non-religious game. Fantastical things are fine, but when everything is fitted to the doctrine of a single religion, there is an issue.

    As a Minecraft player

    I don't have issues with a sky-world
    I still don't have issues with fantasy.

    But I do have issues with this sky-world being peaceful.


    In summary, no I do not see an issue with adding fantastical things to the game, and neither do many of the atheists in this thread. The issue lies with this fantasy being modeled exactly over a purely Christian world-view, the place being peaceful, and that it is being suggested as a Christian relation to hell.

    Increased sky height and floating islands would be nice, perhaps with new flying mobs. Not Heaven, angels, or a deity.

    Now that that is worked out, can we please get back to making this suggestion workable for all parties rather than having religious arguments/flame fests?


    As a side note, I'm glad to see more people spelling atheist properly in this thread.
