    Mobs scared of minecart tracks?
    This actually sounds like a good idea- until you think about it.
    -Guess I don't need a wall/fence to keep monsters out- I'll lay tracks around the perimeter.
    -Should I tunnel/bridge and do it properly? nah, on the ground through a dark forest and I'll be fine now.
    -At least it can boost the output of mob grinders.
    -And I'll be perfectly safe in abandoned mines.
    So how are we going to move animals long distance?- use wheat? Try moving cows more than 100 blocks with wheat and see how friggin tedious that is!

    Seriously?
    Adding a feature which make little sense to solve a tiny problem that's been easy to fix* since tracks were added?
    (and in the process wreaks havoc with everything else?)

    *Easily fixed by building your rails PROPERLY in the first place- using fence/bridges/tunnels ect to keep mobs out.
    -This wasn't even a problem to start with.


    I agree, this is an unnecessary change. On one hand, they want to make the game "harder" by having to click more times on a single block... how fun is that. On the other hand, they want to make laying a minecart track mind numblingly easy now, with no considerations of mobs getting on the track, lighting the track, etc? How do those two concepts jibe together?

    Leave bonemeal alone, and leave the minecart tracks alone. I don't even like the idea of mobs being scared of an inbound minecart. If that's the case, that still eliminates the need to make your track mob-proof, since they'll never be near the track when it's actually being used.

    Also, if mobs are scared of minecart tracks, you can't make fun contraptions where you send a TNT cart into a group of mobs to blow them to smithereens, if they will avoid the tracks at all costs.

    I don't understand the necessity or purpose behind the bonemeal "nerf", if that has actually happened (I haven't tested it). This isn't WoW, or some PvP game, so why would it be necessary to "balance" something like that? That's just annoying. Now I have to right-click 7 times on a single plant vs the one before? That does not = harder, it just = more annoying, and it certainly doesn't = more fun.

    Looks awesome! Especially the colored glass. I could do with/without the colored sand.

    Did 1.4.6 change minecarts to slow down the same whether they're being ridden or not?


    I'm pretty sure that would be a negative

    I wish they would add more redstone things. I like redstone. and the thorn enchantment is pretty cool...


    The next big game version, 1.5.0 (or just 1.5) will be "The Redstone Update", I believe. So it's all about redstone, and I believe there will be some new redstone-related stuffs.

    But when I combine the new Fortune III pickaxe with the Efficiency III enchanted book in an anvil, I get the Fortune III pickaxe without Efficiency and I still lose the XP.


    You're definitely putting the Fortune III pickaxe in the left anvil slot, right (I believe that's required)? What does the result show (in the right-most box) before you finalize the combine?

    Silverfish are a rare spawn from blocks in Extreme Hills Biomes now, I believe. I read something about that in the MC wiki recently.

    Oh yeah, 1.4.7 pre-release is out now too (on mojang.com). Just a few bug fixes is all.

    posted a message on [v3.7] AMIDST - Strongholds, Village, Biome, Etc. Finder. [1.7.4]
    Will this find a specific type of biome? I've got a large biomes world going, and I have been searching for what seems like hours and I can't find an Extreme Hills Biome. I have found endless stretches of ice plains, ice mountains, etc., but no regular "Extreme Hills Biomes". Thanks in advance!

    Edit: Answered my own question: Yes, it can find specific biomes!

    posted a message on What time is 1.4.6 launching?
    It's already launched. As far as I know, the pre-release (which was released earlier today) is exactly the same as the official release, you just have to manually download and install it, whereas the official release automatically updates your existing MC to 1.4.6 when you launch MC and log in to your MC account.

    Are the mobs just spinning around in circles for anyone else? I was on an little island in the ocean, I had 4 zombies trying to get me, I was only one block above them, on a small dirt plateau, and they couldn't figure out how to jump up the one block I was above them. They just kept spinning in small circles, never figuring out they needed to jump up to get me. I'm using the latest snapshot, 12w50b

    Bug for Pre-Release: When boats break, they give planks and sticks.
    Remember in the snapshot when they said that boats drop boats instead of planks now? They forgot to add that :/


    As the person above said, you have to break the boat yourself, with your sword, or whatever. Just go full speed towards land, and just before you reach land, slash your boat with your sword, and you'll be able to recover your boat, and not have to slow down much.

    BUG REPORT for 12W30A release.
    Removing anything that has been cooked or smelted in a furnace gives the player xp, this does not matter what you use to smelt/cook or what is beingsmelted/cooked.


    I'm pretty sure that is intended. Unless I'm not understanding what you're saying. You're supposed to get exp for cooking food, or turning cobblestone into smooth stone, etc.

    Quote from nursesaids

    I apologize for my lack of knowledge here, but is this the snapshot that introduces the single player/multiplayer merging thing?
    If so can anyone comment on how their experience has been?


    That was done was back in snapshot 12w18a IIRC
