Some are hard-coded in I think, the rest seems to use some sort of random generation similar to how normal Minecraft seeds work as far as I can tell. Why don't you go look at the code to see how it works? Some people in the modding section might be able to get you started in finding that.

There was a Minecraft movie by the name of Skies of Aurora a while back, and it was pretty decent and a lot of people watched it. Go for it!

I'm having the exact same problem and would also like to see an answer! And yeah, sand is very glitchy.
I let my world sit for a few minutes and everything seems to have fixed itself? Idk what's going on

Yup! Those are the words that appear in the enchanting table, except that they are translated into a fictional language in-game. The wiki has some information on this, as well as a lengthy list of all the different references mentioned there.

Dude, you've got yourself turned around. You don't need to mess with Java. There are multiple ways to install a mod, but the easiest and most common way is to use the Forge modloader.
Go to https://files.minecraftforge.net/ and pick out the Minecraft version the mod is for. Download it, and make sure that Minecraft is closed out when you run the installer or it won't work.
When it's done, you'll need to find the .minecraft folder. There are a few ways to do this. You can either go to your resource packs menu, click Open Resource Pack Folder, go up one folder layer, and put the mod file (your java file) in the new mods folder that Forge should have created. (Just make sure to exit Minecraft when you're done.) Or if you have a Windows device, you can also press the Windows key and R, then type %appdata% in the box that appears. Find the .minecraft folder, and again, put the mod in the mods folder. (If you have a Mac or Linux, google it. I don't know.)
Open up the Minecraft launcher and select the new Forge profile that's been made.(Click the green arrow to the right of the play button.) Enjoy your mods!
(Rarely you'll come across a mod that's a zip file or something. Works the same way.)
Also, make a new world to play with your mods in. Don't play a modded world in vanilla and vice versa. This can really screw up that world if you're not careful.
I haven't made a mod myself yet, but I think the reason you think you're having problems with is this: Minecraft for the PC does indeed run on Java. This is why the vast majority of mods are in Java. But because they aren't connected to Minecraft at the moment, they have no idea what to do.

From what I can tell and remember, 1.8 is not fondly remembered by most, especially in the modding community. If I remember the forums correctly at the time, a lot weren't going to make a 1.8 version of their mods because of a large change in how Minecraft was coded, and by the time they'd get it figured out, the next update would come around, so why not just code their mod for later versions?
I'd say keep trying to find help. SOMEONE out there has to be able to help you.

I put Mending on my Elytra and just go find a way to get experience every once in a while to repair it.
Much easier than a huge amount of leather and crazy repair prices.

I think it might have something to do with a zombie pigman and maybe fake endstone? Just curious, (If you reload your world and you're still in the overworld) press F3 and look at your coordinates while you're standing near your portal. Divide them by 8, and are those numbers anywhere close to X20, Y76, Z44? Because that's where the error-throwing pigman is.
I'd say if no one comes along with a better idea, try building a portal really far away from where you are right now (or try re-creating this glitch in creative in a new world) and see if it really was the pigman with the error.

There are two very good sites out there that can help with curves. Here's one that does circles and ovals of any size:
And here's one that does spheres, domes, cones, bezier curves, and the option for either solid or hollow shapes:
And, as (almost) always, try to make things look realistic. Study the caves in Minecraft and real life, see what they look like, and try to re-create them. Add your own touch, not everything has to be super-real unless that's what you're really going for.
Here's a pic of a rounded thing that I made a while back. (Before I found these sites. Not like they would have helped with something of that shape anyway...)

Chickens absolutely breed in a similar way to mammals, except that their egg is stored outside of the body after the act of breeding occurs. Also because gameplay is more important than realism. Allowing them to hatch from eggs is a fun little quirk that has existed for years now, and breeding with seeds keeps them consistent with other animal mobs.
May 14, 2020Toadrunner posted a message on Pet lovers beware: Deadly pumpkin and melon patchesPosted in: Discussion
I recommend that animal lovers keep their pets away from pumpkin and melon patches. I lost several tamed wolves to them back in MC 1.13 before I realized what was happening. I heard a wolf whining and saw him being crushed by a pumpkin that suddenly grew where he was standing. I was able to save that wolf and another one, but I stopped letting my wolves roam free when I wasn't right nearby.
Today I got a popup message: "cat suffocated in a wall". The only missing cat was the one I had seated near a melon patch. There were no walls, only melons. Where my poor kitty had been sitting a piece of string was floating. the cat had not been sitting on a block where a melon would grow, but it must have sidled closer to the melon patch without me noticing.
In my experience a tree can also crush a pet by materializing where the pet was standing. I would much prefer that the game query if a space is empty before growing and crushing something in it.

So I noticed that while zombies have arms forwards (not like players) and skeletons have arms down, but thin arms (not like players) stray's second layer is thick limbs and arms down. strays make great player style npcs when the second layer is retextured. just wanted to let u know.

Thank you for all the years of player involvement and downloading my maps. Diversity is the second most viewed map on this forum and Diversity 2 is the 4th most viewed map here. It's been a pleasure entertaining you. This forum is ending but I am not.
There is no need to respond to this thread any longer. Please visit one of the links above for any help. Cheers!
In order to record Diversity 2, you must list the build team members by name and include the map link, https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding-java-edition/maps/2200445 in your video description.
This map has been updated to 1.8.8. Running this map in ANY other version of Minecraft is not recommended.
Return to the world of Diversity - an epic multi-genre challenge map for single or multiplayer! PC Gamer's #2 Minecraft Map of all time has spawned a sequel. With over 1 million downloads, Diversity 2 has quickly become Curse.com's #1 most downloaded map, overcoming the original Diversity map. Diversity 2 is a unique form of map. Similar to the CTM style, you are tasked to complete a monument. However, in the Diversity series, the monument blocks are obtained from completing different genre-specific levels.
This time, a team of builders were enlisted and the end product is really quite special. We hope you enjoy the map. Diversity 2 also proudly features custom skins from over 650 members of the Minecraft community!
We'd like to thank the community for the massive reception! In 2016, Diversity 2 achieved a Guinness World Record for being the most downloaded Minecraft project.

- 1-3 players
- Render Distance: 10-16 Chunks
- 4GB RAM or higher allocated to Minecraft
- 64-bit Java
For Multiplayer, you MUST have command blocks enabled.
In your server.properties file, make sure you have this:
We recommend you keep the game to 2 players, but 3 could work.
This map is NOT compatible with Bukkit. Our apologies.
I can't find the last Mirror Switch in the Adventure Branch- 4 in the 4 towers, obviously.
- 1 in the greenhouse, maybe check out those buttons?
- 1 in the kitchen. Did it say something about cooking food?
- 1 in the theatre. Those movie posters sure look creepy...
- 1 in the bedroom behind the 4th tower.
The final drop is bugged. I manage to hit the button, but I never get the wool!STOP trying to hit that button by falling! Read the Dropper Tips book. That's why you have it.
I can't figure out this puzzleDon't be afraid to use the hint book. Trust me. You have more than enough hints, even if you don't think you do. 1. Lights and Toggle
Hint #12. Jigsaw Puzzle
You need to the turn all the lights off.Hint #2
When you step on a pressure plate, the lights above reverse from what they were.Hint #3
You need to make the room entirely dark. Stand on the various pressure plates in the corners first aligning the lights up with the ones outside the puzzle area. The Toggle will send you in a location where you can see the puzzle without the pillars in the way.Answer
Again, the lights need to all be off. If you cant get it, sign the hint book a few times, until the Branch gives you just one plate to step on. Step on that plate, and you can move on.
Hint #13. Five Sheep Logic Puzzle
Pillared Quartz is the outside of the picture.Hint #2
Signs go on the bottom. Torches on the top.Hint #3
The picture is of a Minecraft mob.Answer
You are trying to make a sheep. If you cant get it, sign the hint book a few times. The Branch will move you to the next puzzle automatically.
Hint #14. Jukebox Pathway Puzzle
We highly recommend you use the grid with the true and false markers. Mark the area (including the sheep's face) with true or false based on what the book says.Hint #2
Once you have all the book info laid out, you can start to deduce which sheep belongs where.Hint #3
After you have the answers, you need to spawn a sheep, then dye it, then lead it to its home.Answer
If you still are having trouble, use enough hints and the Branch will give you the answers.
Hint #15. Zombies and Villagers
The discs create different pathways. Depending on which disc you insert, a different direction can be achieved.Hint #2
Notice the title of the discs. They have arrows. The arrows point to available directions from jukebox to jukebox. You cannot access areas outside the map, or the dark shaded areas. If a disc loses its name, you can reset the puzzle and get the discs again.Hint #3
Keep your eye on the last move and save the correct disc for that, since you need to get into the red area. Try working from the end backwards, or writing down your pathway before going through.Answer
If you still can't get it, use enough hints and the Branch will show you the exact pathway on your map.
Hint #16. Portal
You need to get all the Zombies and all the Villagers to the other side to proceed.Hint #2
At no point can the Zombies outnumber the Villagers. You can only send one or two mobs over at one time and each side has to take a turn.Hint #3
Start off by sending two Zombies over, then send one back. Then you can start to work out a plan so you don't leave the Villagers outnumbered.Answer
If you still can't solve it, use enough hints and the Branch will let you finish off the puzzle easily.
Hint #1QwertyuiopThePie has created a couple speedrun videos for the Puzzle Branch.
This puzzle is pretty straightforward mechanic-wise. Step in an orange portal, appear where the blue portal is.Hint #2
Portals will only appear on light surfaces. If you land on red sand you will die.Hint #3
Once you get to the final part, there are 3 yellow stained glass block you need to remove by levers to gain the wool.For the lever that is behind a stained glass wall with the center block open:
It's a trick shot. Portal up to the top of the giant cube, and fire into the middle. Yes, the shot can be made, but it's tricky.For the area where there are platform with no way to see the top:
You need to arc your shot with low power, so that the arrow lobs on to the top of the platforms.For the area where there tall rooms:
You need shoot at the ceiling and floor, then hit the spot as you're falling. Keep in mind, you face the same way the Portal Sheep is when you teleport. So you may need to adjust how you move when fallingAnswer
If you still can't solve it, use enough hints and you win.
Walkthrough without hints Walkthrough with hints
I can't figure out how to beat the BossThe boss is tough. It has 3 stages, along with a handful of attacks.
Get a bow and an arrow. You can grab one when the platforms start crumbling.Step #2
Get the enchanted book that appears when the platforms start crumbling.Step #3
Drop the book on the platforms. The enchantment room will appear where you can put your bow in the chest and have a much better weapon.Step #4
Notice when the Wither opens its eyes and mouth, there are buttons. Shooting the buttons causes the left or right skull to stay open for a while.Step #5
Move far away from the attack when the Wither shoots its left or right face at the platforms. This will expose a Wither Skeleton which you may start firing at with your enchanted bow.Step #6
Once both Wither Skeletons are killed, the middle head will start firing fireballs at you. You simply need to deflect the fireball back to the Wither's body.

Q: May I translate Diversity 2 into a foreign language for others who don't speak English?
A: No. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a pure translation and in turn, the map may have incorrect information.
Q: May I post Diversity 2 on my Minecraft website for people to download?
A: Yes you may, provided that any download links listed point back to this forum post. It is too dificult to manage updates in multple locations. All links MUST send users to the Minecraft Forums (Curse). Any outside sources who have otherwise, have done so against our explicit permission.

Hello everyone, I got some sad news . My Laptop Computer Died (3-31-18) Literally the next day after my last post. As of now, I have no way in getting into my minecraft account, I think Mojang Deleted my Minecraft Account due to inactivity longer then 6 months. However; I'm still in the game even though I cant play Minecraft. I still got all my stuff that I had developed to build all my mazes and dungeons and Voxel spheres. Just to let you know that isn't going to stop me from building things for Minecraft. Right now I plan on trying to improve my commands working for the latest Update even though I have no way in Testing anything...
Jan 4, 2019accidentprone__ posted a message on So how can we bring factions back to the glory days?Posted in: Discussion
Alright so I'll be honest, I last played factions in 2013, and even then it was starting to go stale. Factions to me was always the politics and relationships between groups of players. Now it seems to be just donators with £300 kits with some elaborate TNT cannons.
But enough moaning, people have said all this for years and we are all tired of hearing it.
So I've decided to purchase a server and do something about it instead of bitching on the forums.
First off, I'm paying for this server, nobody else. I don't want advantaged donator ranks, or VIP kits rubbish. The biggest problem I've always found in factions is that it's way to easy for paying players to act like demi-god narcissists and rub their /creditcard kit in your face.
Okay so that's the first big problem gone. Now it time for base design.
Okay, so I don't really need to be that qualified to say that your floating obsidian block won't be winning any architecture grand design competitions this year. Your eyesore of a base makes me cringe in places that shouldn't be cringing.
This is because every base design needs to be 100% TNT proof, and the players will do anything to keep their stacks of 64 dirt safe and sound.
This is a tough point to fix though, above all else raiding is at the heart of factions. While I'm tempted to just disable TNT and call it a day and go home. I'm afraid it won't work, as it will be to hard to raid any base then, and with no raiding, no fun.
One idea I've come up with is maybe sacrificing faction power for every TNT you place. This could then make an overclaim counterraid very easy. This dynamic could force players to engage in online raids alot more as offline raid can now be risky.
Or maybe come up with some other ways to lose faction power, disable TNT and have 100% overclaim all the time.
Another way to discourage ugly bases is to reward pretty ones. Weekly design competitions and showcases. Furthermore, maybe a plugin that checks the coordinates and biome of your /f home, and if it's near the surface, aka not bedrock or skybase, then your faction gets some perks. For example if you're near an ocean biome or beach, and between blocks -10 and 20, then your base becomes a trading port and your faction receives discounts at the shop, longer underwater breath etc etc.
Also thinking of making locations of bases public, why bother hiding a base at bedrock or at build limit when everyone can find it easily.
Finally, I don't like overpowered items, so nothing like that. But I am tempted to add some quest lines or treasure hunts. Like maybe have some references to some ancient god or something around the map, put all the clues together, raid a tomb and get a unique overpowered sword. Sword of a thousand truths style.
Got loads of other ideas, really want to break the mould of factions and bring that feeling back that we all had at the start of the decade.
I understand I'll most likely get a grand total of zero players, but as I said I'm paying for this server, so I'm thinking it more of a personal project. With such a low player count I think those quests will be good, as it keeps people occupied between raids.
So that's it for now. I've have other ideas but this post is far to long already.
I'll be happy to here what you think, please tell me where I'm wrong or where I'm right. I'm a bit outdated on the current factions meta so tell me if I'm missing anything obvious. Also what do you think is wrong with factions, and how would you change things?

So, I like to play a lot of old versions, but mostly the Infdev versions. Therefore, I decided to come up with a new challenge: the Infdev Pyramid speedrun. Basically, in the early Infdev (Infinite Development) versions of Minecraft, brick pyramids spawned periodically throughout the world. Notch implemented them for testing purposes, mostly to test how the game would react to generating such a large structure, on top of generating infinite terrain. For players that are new to Infdev, these structures may be very hard to find, but for seasoned players, they will be very easy to find. So, without further ado, the challenge!
The Infdev Pyramid Speedrun
Rules:1. No cheating, hacking, or alteration of the game of any type is allowed.2. Don't lie about your results.
Requirements:1. A computer, complete with a monitor, mouse and keyboard.2. A copy of Minecraft: Java Edition.3. Any version of Infdev released on the following dates: February 27, 2010, March 13, 2010, March 16, 2010, March 20, 2010, March 21, 2010, and March 25, 2010.
FAQ:Q: Where do I find these versions? A: You can find all of these versions on the Minecraft Wiki, and I have linked the page for Infdev right here: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/InfdevQ: How do I install these versions? A: You must download both the .jar and .json files for whichever version you choose, and then put both of them in a folder, which will be named the same as the .jar and .json files. Then, copy the folder into your versions directory, which is located at %appdata%/.minecraft/versions.
Finally, how to actually do the challenge!!!!1. Make sure you have a timer at hand, ready to start. Open the Minecraft launcher and locate the version you have selected. After you have done that, click the play button.
2. The timer starts as soon as the title screen comes up, and is not allowed to be stopped at any time during the challenge. . Click the "Generate new Level" or "Create new Level" button.2.5) If you generate a world, and are not satified with where you spawned (e.g. spawning in the middle of a massive ocean, etc.) then you may generate a new world. However, note that the timer will continue to run, as it is not allowed to be stopped at any time during the challenge.
3. Begin to traverse the world and look for a brick pyramid. Note that it does not matter what difficulty you use, as there are no mobs in this version, but your health will not regenerate if you are not on peaceful.3.5) Also note that you can only walk in this version, as sprinting was not yet implemented. Swimming across large oceans can also take a long time.
4. When you have found a brick pyramid, you must climb to the very top.
5. After the player has reached the very top of the brick pyramid, the timer stops, and they may post their results online.
