    posted a message on Cobblestone generator?
    I notice people have been using cobblestone generators, and wondering if anyone can either tell me or send me a link to a topic that already explains this. I've seen a few videos, but none going over its creation.

    Much help need, and much appreciated. ^-^

    Never tried any pattern yet... just sorta dig randomly and use some luck and a little intuition.
    Here a top down of a portion:
    :chestfront: = Base/Home :cobblestone: = Mined Out Path [] = Didn't Mined
    (Not to scale of course, and it goes further and further downwards.)

    [] [] [] [] [] [] :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone: []
    :chestfront: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: []
    [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] []
    [] [] :cobblestone: [] [] [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: []
    [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] []
    :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone: [] [] :cobblestone: []
    [] [] :cobblestone: [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone: []
    [] [] [] :cobblestone: :cobblestone: [] :cobblestone: [] [] []

    Its been a lot of fun, and provide decent yields. Sometimes, get lost easily so signs help, and when I'm done it looks like a natural cave. ^-^

    Let alone, with no planning, stumbling on a empty (well, not so empty) natural cave or dungeon is both a surprise and shock to me. Its keeps me going, and the surprise adds to the "survival" of the game.

    I'll have to try this out... having problems working the off-line version, but hopefully this will do the trick.

    posted a message on Usefulness of Compasses
    Now I know that its infinite in all ways, but I like to have a cardinal north facing compass. A compass that ALWAYS points north to help one find oneself, to get bearings, and to aid in mapping.

    Quote from SittenSpynne »
    Alternatively, an in-game map would help a lot.

    I admire the fact that no in-game mapping exists. It provides you to learn how to navigate or mark trails, and enables players to get lost much more easily. An in-game map would take away from some of the "survival" aspects of it.

    posted a message on Usefulness of Compasses
    My personal opinion, I like if the compass pointed north... or a north magnetic point, if the MineCraft world is round. (Haven't seen proof of a round world yet.) But a north pointed compass would make me happy.

    And for people who get lost on the surface, break out the grid paper and map your surroundings. Until you can write in books.

    As for actually use of the compass in game, haven't yet. (Still digging.) So, can only put in opinions what I like to see. I'm fine with the compass pointing to your spawn location, but I still would like the north facing.
