    posted a message on Is anyone else bothered by the ridiculous number of cave spawns?
    Personally I love the way caves are. The second you think you have mined everything out of a cave you will break a block revealing a whole new area to mine! So fun. :)

    Personally I never enjoyed strip mining or branch mining. It was always so boring and well boring. Either way it seems like most people complain because they feel forced to explore and mine them. You could show a bit of self restraint and just either wall it off or continue on as if it wasn't there.

    posted a message on Has anybody found any secret enchantments in dungeons yet?
    There was a thread on here with the seed and coordinates to a skeleton spawner with a Fortune 2 book. Now not exactly sure if that counts as 'hidden' enchantments or not or whatever.

    Oh heres the thread.

    Sorta disappointed that the present chest thing is just a texture change for Christmas time.

    Though I hope the Skis become a full time item of sorts that have a use. I can just see myself in a Ice Mountains biome sking down the mountains. :D

    Though how that would work I am unsure. Still would be cool. Might even make me want to spend time in some of the snow biomes(not a big fan)

    If I turn output off, will it still show my /say commands?


    Yes /say commands should work. The output seems to just say what is being performed.

    Markscape did bring up something I forgot to mention. Once the chunks are unloaded the minecart will no longer activate the switch... but I guess if it's at the world spawn it will work no matter where you are in the world.

    If not then it's a simple task of making more of them. Which from the looks of it no matter which route you go should be a quick thing. You'd just need to figure out where to build them.

    But what happens if someone sleeps in a bed? Won't that mess up the timing?


    When someone sleeps in a bed it will temporarily turn day, but within like a second it will turn night again. As long as the minecart goes over the detector rail your minecraft world will be in perpetual darkness. :)



    This is all you will need to keep it night in your minecraft world.

    but again you will need to turn off the command block output. All this does is remove the text saying what the command blocks do. To do this you type /gamerule commandBlockOutput false into a different command block. This is case sensitive though.

    Simple and easy. :)

    Hmm

    did some testing with the bed. With the set up in the picture when you wake up its sometimes night immediately and sometimes its day but only for a second.

    Easiest way is to use a detector rail and a mine cart.

    Make a track that has a minecart that goes back and forth over a detector rail. Place the command block right next to the detector rail.

    Everytime that minecart passes the command block it will set the time to well whatever you choose. I think midnight is 18000.

    Extremely easy to build... though I am not sure exactly how it might effect performance. You will want to disable the command block output though. Because it does spam!

    Right now in my testing world I have it set so that it changes between midnight and dawn every few seconds. :D

    EDIT: Well I tried making it so I could easily switch between only night and having it change every few seconds. It was easy... but while pulling the levers I realized that sometimes the timing wasn't right and it would sorta break it.

    But anyways that's not what you wanted anyways. :P

    But for the always night time, again a minecart going back and forth over a detector rail thats hooked up to a command block should easily do the trick.

    posted a message on Creeper Holes drive me insane
    Same and the worst part is I decide to fill them up immediately after they blow up. Which means I grab my dirt and begin filling the hole in and then...

    Well where there is 1 creeper there is always another. I have died so many times trying to fill in these stupid holes.

    Though I suppose for the most part I actually just cover them up and don't entirely fill them in. Sometimes I place a torch or two under there.(I'd hate to have zombies moaning in my yard during the day.)

    Quote from Phycozz

    So, if you were to start a survival map with a starter chest, you could get wood and mine if you get the right tools..? Adventure mode beat the Wither challenge, anyone? :3


    Thats exactly right. Though I think you could wait until night and hope a creeper blows up a tree and not destroy the wood. You know to make things extra challenging or maybe just tedious.

    Actually in Adventure mode you CAN break and place blocks. At least I can. The thing is you need to have the right tool in order to break a block. So if you want to dig some dirt you need a shovel.

    Adventure mode pretty much makes Axes one of the most valuable items in game.

    Don't forget the armor system change. And massive cave systems doing all the mining for you.

    If you don't mind being one hit away from death most of the time on normal.


    Thats where the healing potions come in. I did mention they were key right? Hmm... sometimes I revise my posts and lose track of changes.

    Back before hunger you relied on porkchops and bread and whatever else food there was then to heal. As long as you can't starve to death once you have the capability to brew healing potions you can skip over hunger altogether on Normal. This would also effectively roll back the stacking of food because you can't stack potions.

    Healing potions would be the new porkchops. Preferably splash so you can bypass the whole animation.

    It's rather amazing that people complain about hunger when Mojang has made it extremely easy to ignore it altogether... at least once you get netherwart and a brewing stand... and melons. I forgot about the whole melons part... and gold I guess.

    Actually this would make the game even harder... challenging... maybe just too frustrating.

    But yeah. Once you can produce healing potions you can say good bye to hunger on Normal and Easy because it be the exact same idea as it was before hunger. Only you know not as easy as plunking down a torch on grass. :P

    Food stacking.


    This is going to sound really dumb but... you don't actually need to stack them. Actually I wonder what it be like to play minecraft if you couldn't stack items(except maybe torchs)

    Anyways.

    I hear people complain about enchanting and potions and that sort of stuff. I actually agree. I haven't actually done much brewing... but I do think enchanting can make the game really easy. Which is why I don't do much enchanting. I will get some good enchantments if I need to clear something out... like a 3x3 tunnel between bases or for whatever reason.

    But if enchanting and potions do make the game easier then why not just stop using them?

    Other then Hunger and Breeding nothing has changed fundamentally about Minecraft. Oh ok... and the terrain gen.

    Everything else has more or less remained the same gameplay wise. Minecraft seems to be a game where you can make it really easy or you can make it as hard as you want. If you think you are to powerful with your enchanted diamond armor and weapons... then don't use them?

    People keep bringing up this idea that Minecraft has somehow dramatically changed. The way I see things is that there are just more options to make the game easier.

    I am really sick of people blaming enchanting and everything else for making Minecraft easy. Sure it's true to an extent. but I'd also blame Minecraft becoming easier on the player themselves.

    Nothing critical has changed... except maybe hunger and breeding.

    But hey! Once you have the ability to brew healing potions you can sorta go back to the old system. :D

    Until you starve to death. Wait can you only starve to death on Hard? Otherwise on Normal and Easy you could literally play as if Hunger wasn't there. Of course then you couldn't sprint.

    But yeah. I'm done ranting.

    Why would anyone need that much TNT?!


    Need? Who cares.

    The point is... you can never have to much TNT. That and if you know how to place TNT you can clear out a nice large area with little work.

    Actually since I have taken up the habbit of tunneling between my bases... that much TNT would be AMAZING to have. Easy tunneling at it's finest. Too bad I am just to lazy to kill that many creepers and I don't like building mob traps.

    posted a message on Have Diamonds Lost Their Excitement?
    Heres a tip. Don't use Fortune enchantments on Diamonds? Just yesterday I found 10 diamonds in a cave and I was jumping for joy. I still get excited when I find diamonds because they are awesome.

    So throw away that fortune pick and mine diamonds like the old days.

    The new lighting engine was really buggy and slow. From what I understood they were not abandoing the engine entirely it's just needs more work... a lot of work.
