I logged out of Minecraft at beta base camp after a few tries. When I logged back in, it no longer kills me when I hit the ground, and I can't change to creative. Is there anything I can do?

1.4.7. I remember being so happy that they added quartz, because sandstone wasn't white enough for my builds to be perfect.

Found a glitch! in the first level with the black wool, I think I stood too close to the place where I was supposed to put it and Minecraft glitched and got rid of the black wool because it thought I was IN the hole. Sadly, I don't think there's anything that can be done about it.

Nov 21, 2018bjdagreatw66 posted a message on Guinness Has a World Record for a Minecraft Gaming Marathon ...and I Intend to Break it.Posted in: Discussion
That title is the entire premise behind this post. The current record stands at 35 hours 40 minutes and 2 seconds and I am aiming to break that Guinness World Record with an attempt this spring. I am asking for everyones and anyones help. Please consider donating so this world record attempt can be made.
The full explanation (which is also on the fundraising page.)
I have possessed a strong desire for years now to become a Guinness World Record holder. Much time and research has been invested to find what title would be most practical and achievable to pursue. It hasn't been the easiest as I have many interests and have been proven time and again to be competent at many things, but exceptional at very few. However, when I came across video game records on the Guinness website, I found some of them fascinating, and others interesting. Most importantly of all, I found a one that I believe to be more achievable than others.
The Selection: The Longest Video Game Marathon Playing Minecraft.
I have been playing Minecraft on PC almost since it's alpha release in 2010. (My college roommate actually bought my copy for me as an early christmas gift.) I've been enjoying this game as it has grown and evolved. I love to play it even more now than I did when I first started.
Since I found that a Minecraft Gaming Marathon is not only a real record but a somewhat competitive one I started thinking on it and turning a plan over and over in my mind. It didn't take too much thought, to realize that this is absolutely something I could aim for. I shared this with my wife and she stated plainly that it would take some fundraising for her to be ok with me taking up to four days away from her and our children to make this attempt.
Thus, here we are.
I would enjoy it deeply to even make a single attempt at a Guinness World Record. So please consider giving to my cause. Even if you aren't completely comfortable with why I am doing this, please know the funds would still be greatly helpful. My wife and I possess our own personal mountain of student loans and this would almost certainly go toward paying off another chunk of said mountain. So please consider that as well when deciding to give.
Here's a smattering of the little details that would contribute to my success in this world record attempt:
-Having done the research, it is allowed for competitors making a video game marathon attempt to have a ten minute break for every hour of game play. They can be saved up and stacked up for use at once. I would take advantage of this and not push myself hard all at one straight session but pace myself, breaking the goal time into several more manageable chunks of time.
--I already have experience with not getting full quality of sleep and functioning well enough. I have two children, both under three years old.
--Not only do get interrupted sleep by my children, I work in snow removal so I'm used to being awake at all hours of the night, or morning, and needing to function coherently. Also, for the rest of the year, when I'm not working in snow, I work in landscaping so I'm used to grueling and tiresome work for hours and hours straight with no break.
--I have the blessed gift that allows me to fall asleep quickly. It doesn't take me hours to finally drift off. So taking a break for naps would serve me well in this.
--I have played longer gaming sessions before, three or four hours long and it wasn't trouble at all. I get immersed in the game play and I can stay focused, and even desirous of finishing a goal or project if it isn't finished yet. (And there is ALWAYS room for another project in a Minecraft world.
--I also don't use caffeine much at all in everyday life, when I'm lacking sleep or not. Thus without a high tolerance, any need to use that would be more effective.
--So, combining: my gift for napping and falling asleep quickly, not needing full nights of sleep every night, practice at physical endurance, the excitement and adrenaline of this event, the potential aid of caffeine, and the employment of the Uberman sleep cycle (Google this! It's a pretty cool idea!) for this event, all contribute to why I believe I can make a successful run for my own Guinness World Record title!
I've also been putting additional research into: how to best sleep, how to best endure hours of staring at a screen. How to integrate exercise. Best foods to eat and how often, and even screen brightness and environment - all in the idea of giving myself every advantage for going to the gold medal in Minecraft marathon gaming!

First of all I am new to the forums and this is my first post, but i have been playing minecraft since Alpha.
So I am making this thread because a few weeks ago, my brother, my nephew, and I were all playing minecraft and trying to think of a fun game we could play within the game. I came up with the brilliant idea of having a race to see who could get to the nether the fastest, on a completely new map.
So we all had a blast doing that, and it turned out to be really enjoyable based on having to explore a completely new world and obviously RNG played a huge factor in who was able to make it there first.
But that got me thinking even more, and today I pose a challenge to all Minecrafters: Just how fast can YOU get to the nether?
I suppose this could belong on a speedrunning site as a new speedrunning category, but I hope it is okay that I decided to post the idea here first.
The rules I of the race are as follows:
-You must play vanilla Minecraft, no mods obviously (except Optifine perhaps). I am currently playing version 1.13, although version doesn't matter as long as you include what version of the game you are playing.
-Play on easy difficulty so there are some mobs and things are more interesting.
-Generate Structures: Off. There could also be a separate category with this enabled, but I played with it turned off because you really have to focus on getting the materials yourself rather than getting lucky with a village or temple spawning nearby.
-Start timing yourself right after you change the difficulty to 'easy' and close the game menu.
-Stop timing once the animation of warping to the nether stops (right when the game starts loading the nether world)
You are also allowed to "pre-play" a map and keep its seed so you can try over and over again for better times, and figure out what the best route to gather ores and items as quickly as possible. This is more of a speedrunning challenge in which we are trying to see who can get the fastest time, in the same way normal minecraft speedrunners play through a map many times to beat the game as fast as possible.
That all being said, I have been grinding on a map seed that I have found to be incredibly lucky. All the items i need to gather are almost in the perfect places. It was actually the first map i was able to even complete the challenge in a reasonable amount of time that wasnt something over like 25 minutes. I went through roughly 11 different maps before finally coming across this amazing seed. My current best time playing it was just over 5 minutes and 30 seconds after about 15 or so attempts, so i plan to lower it even further.
Sometime tomorrow I will screencap myself playing through it all as well, for your viewing enjoyment as well as a starting challenge time that I hope many of you will be able to destroy. (And also proof about my amazing seed).
The seed is -1194395089 so you can have a go at this map if you'd like (version 1.13 release)
Let me know what everyone thinks about this challenge and if anyone is interested or wants to talk about strategies please don't hesitate.
Sorry for the incredibly long post.
Here is a link to the video of my run for your viewing enjoyment: (OBSOLETE)
Here is an updated run with new strat and much lower time!

Feb 14, 2018AlekEagleYT posted a message on (I think I should put this here) I just launched minecraft Java Edition on a Kindle Fire.Posted in: Discussion
Long story short... i ran java edition on a Kindle Fire version 220.127.116.11 otherwise known as android version 5.1.1. As of 12:46 PM Mountain Standard Time, I ran Java Minecraft on a Android device. Now stick around if you want to know how.
Acquire a: Android device on Android 5.*; go to https://minecraft.net/download , go to the bottom and click on Linux under Desktops (it will make sense soon, Trust me 👍), go to Google Play and get the app Debian noroot here is a link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cuntubuntu .
Open Debian noroot (make sure you have at least a couple of GBs of internal storage) and let it install all of the files it needs, after doing that open a terminal, if you opened a Root Terminal type: "apt-get install -t jessie-backports openjdk-8-jdk" it should ask you "Are you sure? This will take up insert value here MB (Y, n)?" push enter and let it install. (if you used the normal terminal, type the same command, but add "sudo" at the beginning), after doing that type "java" and if you did everything right so far it will say something other than "bash: java: command not found".
After all of that, take your Minecraft.jar that you got from the download from minecraft.net and put it in a folder on internal storage. Go back to Debian noroot and cd to the folder you made ex: "cd /sdcard/minecraft" but replace "minecraft" with what ever you named your folder. Now, the fun part. Type "java -jar Minecraft.jar -Xms1024 -Xmx1024 -d32 & disown" (those second to last two options for one GB of RAM and the last is for data set 32 bit) and... wait, until you see this! (Pic: 2) then you are ready!
P.S. Download might take a little. You also need to login!

I think I solved it!
I found a thread on reddit from 2 years ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/34bxus/installing_forge_with_the_new_local_java_runtime/
I followed his instructions about the console commands and it worked. Forge is installed now and I could follow the rest of @paintbrush11's explanations!
I share this for those who also have a local jre and didn't solve the issue yet.

Many times in Minecraft I've been in a situation where I want to split a string of blocks into sections. And to do this, I've never really been able to perfect it and I've had lots of issues when it comes to splitting it correctly. Especially when it's quite a large build, I want to know how long each section needs to be.
That's where this website comes in. I've made a website that will split a string of blocks into sections for you! All you do is put in the total length, and then how many sections you want, and it'll either tell you it's not possible or how long each section needs to be. I've found it quite useful already!
Click here to check it out!
(I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section. Wasn't sure where to put it.)

Hi there this is my first post here in the Minecraft Forum. I want to show off my Automated Building Bot and what it can so far build. Right now it can Build Pyramids, Step Pyramids and can even Build the rooms inside them through a a single command function. I plan to build Circles So I can later build Castles with my Automated Building Bot.

Why does it have to be somewhere in the map? Because that's the only way you could understand it?
Imagine that reality is several sheets of paper stacked on top of each other. The Overworld is one, the Nether another, and the End a third. You can go from one to the other, and they're all... "real," for a lack of a better term, but they're not all in the same plane of existence. They're all on different, overlapping planes. This is especially obvious given that the Nether is dimensionally smaller than the Overworld, yet still maps to it. Locations correspond, but distances are lessened.
The Nether "sheet" is eight times smaller... and yet still can be traveled to from any point on the Overworld "sheet."
The Void then, would be the space off the papers entirely. A big infinite emptiness, with no papers nearby to jump to.
