    Do phantoms need solid blocks to spawn on, or can they spawn mid-air?


    Mid-air spawning would be pretty bad for floating-island-style bases...

    I added a note about glitches to the post.


    I agree that it's annoying when they make previously valuable items trivial to get. (Saddles, nametags, circle-stonebricks...)

    Note that all concrete and concrete powder blocks require sand in addition to gravel to obtain. This makes them the only items that require more than 1 non-renewable "root" resource to make.

    If you think I made a mistake somewhere please post.

    Obsidian is renewable because you can make some with nether portals or the end portal platform.

    Endstone is renewable because some of it generates every time the dragon is spawned.

    Most diamond equipment is renewable because of villager trades or extremely rare mob drops.

    Previous versions of this post have had people saying that grass is renewable, and one could say that the actual "grass" part of the item is renewable, but we are talking about items, not item sub-components, so making a block of grass consumes a block of dirt.

    No, the Minecraft world isn't infinite, just really big.

    killing it generates a new end city.


    No, it only generates a new portal.
    End cities generate just like all other structures, and there is a finite (very large) number of them.

    You can get diamonds from villagers.




    You can sell diamonds to villagers (3-4 for one emerald), you can buy enchanted diamond chestplates, swords, axes and pickaxes.

    Quote from TheMasterCaver»

    I
    think it is academic whether most of the resources listed here are
    renewable; for example, an average console edition world (864x864
    blocks) has around 9,000 diamond ore (20,000 diamonds with Fortune III) -
    more than virtually any player will ever use even if they played on the
    same world for years; in a world that I've had for 3 years and spent 76
    days on I've gone through 271 diamond pickaxes, which is only 813
    diamonds, and I've used around twice as many overall (if I did not start
    trading for them about 6 months ago, and more recently other diamond
    gear, as I'm still in 1.6.4 where all diamond gear can be bought from
    trading), and I'd run out of caves to explore (for fun, not to get
    resources) long before using that many (the actual size of the world is
    about 20 times larger). Most other players would likewise run out of
    things to do or just make a new world long before they ran out of
    nonrenewable resources.

    See also: Can a Minecraft world ever be completely used up?





    It is relevant for skyblock-style maps.


    I agree that it is mostly useless distinction for vanilla, other than horse armor, elytras, dragon eggs and dragon heads even an limited map (server) has effectively infinite resources.

    You can get new flowers with bone meal. Using it on grass will make tall grass and "small" flowers, and the 'big" flowers can be duplicated by hitting them with bone meal directly.

    Chorus flowers, not the normal ones, which are obiviously renewable.
    Quote from Hexalobular»

    No, the plants branch and grow one flower per branch.
    You have to break the flower itself to get it, if you break the blocks under the flower it doesn't drop.

    I didn't know they branch, List fixed.

    Enchanting table: You can always craft another.


    Diamond Block: You can craft those too.


    Chorus flower: Can be obtained by mining it directly and by planting them and rowing new plants.




    I'm pretty sure you can't actually get new flowers trough farming. (You can farm fruit, but flowers are unfarmable.)
    Enchanting tables and diamond blocks require non-renewable diamonds to craft, making them non-renewable.

    posted a message on Nether Fortress with ZERO loot
    Quote from echonite»

    Depends on your definition of "loot". To someone looking for netherbrick, that would be a veritable gold mine.



    Before they added the recipe for netherbricks from netherrack in 1.5 they actually were one of the reasons to look for a nether fortress.

    Quote from Retireegeorge»

    Does the hardness of a dropped item eg obsidian have any effect on the likelihood of it being destroyed?


    No, only vanilla item that resists explosions when dropped is the netherstar, and I'm not sure if it only works when first dropped by a wither.

    posted a message on I have too much diamonds.

    I think diamonds really need some new (non-decorative) uses, with mending once you get the gear you never need more diamonds unless you die and loose the gear, which rarely happens because enchanted gear is so OP.


    I don't have too many diamonds because I basically stopped mining in the overworld after I got a villager that sells mending books.


    Diamonds have become "trophy" items, but they are too common to make good trophies.

    P.S. - @ Jeb: come on !!!!! - people like building mobfarms in the game, since the beginning !!!!!! don't try to ruin it more and more .......


    I also don't really understand their hate for mobfarms.

    Minecraft has always been more about building than fighting, so building things to avoid fighting is just logical.

    I think they (and melee weapons in general) may be a bit too weak compared to bows.

    (But I always thought bows are better..)
