    posted a message on Eye of Ender leading to a stronghold-less area
    This is in SSP btw. I'm new, so I think that stands for Survival Single Player, correct? Anyway, this is not on a server. It's on on our computers, playing single-player in our own worlds.We are throwing them, and they aren't falling, they are going straight down. They don't even go up at all. My friend had 13, and spent a couple hours searching for this thing. He even got to a point where the eye would just hover in one area, not going up or down. He cleared out a 6x6 or so area, all the way to bedrock, without finding a portal or any sign of a stronghold. As a test, he made a new creative map, threw a bunch of E of E's and it took him directly to a stronghold, which he said was huge, and there was no way he was missing it in his SSP game.

    posted a message on Eye of Ender leading to a stronghold-less area
    My friend and I are both having this issue. We both never played Minecraft prior to the 1.0 release. We toss up the Eyes of Ender, like you're supposed to, and they lead us in a direction. When they start going straight down, we dig, all the way to bedrock, and find nothing. Both of our maps are using totally random, Minecraft 1.0 generated seeds (different seeds), with structures ON. I'm not sure how to fix this, but I'd like to go to The End area and farm me some ender stone, and slay the dragon, etc.

    Edit: This is a SSP (survival single-player) game.

    posted a message on Question about redstone torch behavior depending on block location
    Quote from xSashuhx

    However, the redstone dust is powering the block below it, shutting off the torch, but when the torch shuts off, so does the redstone.. So the torch turns back on, and so on. This happens so fast the torch burns out.


    Ahhh! That's why! I didn't know that redstone wire powered the blocks below them. NOW it makes sense. I had been confused by this one for days, and I hadn't been able to get an answer. Thanks so much!

    posted a message on Question about redstone torch behavior depending on block location
    Can someone explain this one to me? I have a question about a very basic redstone scenario, and why 2 slightly varying configurations have different results. I've included 4 pictures to explain my question. I will detail what I believe to be true about each picture.



    In the above picture, the redstone torch is placed on top of the block below it. It isn't powering the redstone wire to the right, because there is no block above the redstone torch in which the wire could receive power from.



    Here, by adding a block above the torch, that block becomes powered, thereby giving the piece of wire to the right a means of achieving power by being adjacent to a powered block.



    Here we have a nearly identical scenario, with the redstone torch still occupying the same block of space, only this time it's attached to the side of the block that the redstone wire sits on top of.



    And finally, the part I don't understand. With the torch affixed to the side of the block the redstone wire is on, placing a block above the torch should power that block and then power the redstone wire, no? But that's not what happens. The torch and wire flicker rapidly until the torch shortly thereafter burns out.

    So, what is the difference? The torch is occupying the same block in both cases. How does the torch's location on the side of the other block create this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    posted a message on Change glowstone back
    I'm fairly new to Minecraft, and have yet to enter The Nether. I was actually looking forward to placing Glowstone every so often on my minecart track as a source of light instead of torches, but apparently that isn't an option anymore. I agree with the above poster. It's called Glow"stone". It's a stone that gives off light. I don't see why it would behave like glass.
