    posted a message on Iron farm not functioning -- tips?

    Seriously, at 2:30 in the video:

    "Location is sort of important. It should be built 20 or so blocks in the air and definitely not near any villages."


    And you stash it just underground right next to an existing village.


    "You build it on the ground or slightly off the ground, your golem spawning will not be as controlled"


    Exactly what you got as a result.

    posted a message on Recently tried to download minecraft again but it's not on my account

    It is a rather confusing thing, indeed.

    I go on minecraft.net, login to my account, and click 'Get Minecraft'

    After asking me which platform and which version, it presents me with a 'Buy Minecraft ($26.95)' option.

    But when I actually click the Buy button, it takes me here: https://my.minecraft.net/en-us/store/minecraft/#owned

    There it tells me I already own Minecraft, and gives me the download option.

    posted a message on Turning off cheats ONCE AND FOR ALL

    Of course, the moment something happens, nothing prevents you from disabling that mod and using cheats. I suggest you rather train your will.

    Except it needs to be transparent. Also, back of head part was 1 pixel wider and bottom of head was backwards (assuming you want the 'hose' continuity)

    posted a message on Confused

    Sea level is at 64. So digging straight down (never a good idea), it only takes 59 broken blocks - less than a full stack - before you start hitting bedrock. And if you find a cave, they can go pretty deep pretty quick.


    Generally best level to dig at is 11. You are below 15, so same chance to find good stuff as anywhere deeper, and you are not getting any lava surprises.

    posted a message on Optifine in Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft? Shaders and Such

    Supposedly there are shader packs for Bedrock, but they all seem to be hosted on sites riddled with malware. I did try loading a couple, and while I was able to get them activated in MC bedrock, MC would instantly crash upon loading the world. So it does not look too good.


    For Java MC, you just get Optifine. 1.15 preview version is not yet very friendly with Forge, but on its own it works OK.

    posted a message on Help with overviewer map program

    In world files, under region, you got files named like r.X.Z.mca (i.e. r.-2.5.mca)

    These represent 32-chunk-squared sectors (512x512 blocks each) Roughly, first number represents X coordinate and second number is Z coordinate.

    MC will only create those files for areas actually generated.

    So you wanna look for outlier files. Say, most of your mca files have both numbers within -10..+10 range, but there is a file like r.22.-34.mca This means that you should be seeing something roughly at X 11300, Z -17400 (22 x 512, -34 x 512)


    Your other option, of course, it to render a map of the nether - it should have 'tendrils' of generated terrain showing where those players went.

    posted a message on New player struggling

    First off, go into options and set the game difficulty to Peaceful until you feel more confident with the game. It will not prevent dying from fall damage or lava or drowning, but it turns off monsters.


    Make sure you connect an external mouse. Playing on a touchpad is next to impossible.

    The Minecraft controls are a simple regular WASD+mouse type. Do you have any experience playing other first-person PC games?

    I dunno what your laptop specs are, but if you have jerky performance/low framerate, might be good idea into options and tweak some video settings - fast graphics, fast clouds, lowered particles, lowered render distance (like 12)

    Watch some tutorials on youtube about starting out in the game.


    When you create some sort of shelter, press 'F3'. It brings up a lot of info on screen, of importance are 'XYZ' coordinates about midway down the left side. Write those down. Y coordinate is vertical, so what really matters are X and Z. Knowing your shelter coordinates, you should always be able to find it again.


    You might also want to consider some mods. Download and install forge (http://files.minecraftforge.net/) for whichever version of Minecraft you are playing, it will create a 'forge' profile in your launcher. Now you can load and use mods. An especially good one is 'JourneyMap'.

    https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/journeymap

    It adds automatic mapping to your game, showing a 'radar' map of immediate area, allows you to create waypoints that show up as colored beacons.

    There is no such thing as 'special minecraft mouse'. The poster was trying to help you out with your mouse sensitivity issue, so no need to be uncivil. Speaking of which, there are mouse sensitivity settings in Minecraft options you might want to adjust.

    posted a message on i boated into the void

    What 'black strip'? There is no void in Overworld to fall into. Either your computer has problem loading chunks - which means once it finally loads, you should be all safe and sound - or your world is seriously corrupted. You can try making a backup before logging back in but frankly, judging from your posts, you might be best off starting a fresh new world.

    posted a message on Is anyone familiar with Novaskin? My grandson found a skin in Google that he wants

    All you would be downloading is a 64x64 png file, kinda hard to find viruses in that.

    Some sites will offer to upload your skin for you. I would not use that option. Once you got the .png, log into your MC account at minecraft.net and upload the skin file.
