It's probably because they are 2 high.

If the lower half is surrounded by source blocks and the upper half is not in water, how do you change the door?.

Half-waterlogged? There's no such thing.

posted a message on Actual number of banner combinations.
Sorry to tell you, but the old numbers are correct.

For example using 3 layers: the first layer has 528 possible patterns, the second layer has 528 possible patterns and the third layer has 528 possible patterns.

You get all possible combinations of patterns by multiplying.

The order of layers is already built into the calculation. If the order were unimportant you would have to divide the terms by 1, 1, 2, 6 ,24, 120. 720 respectively, which is n! (n Factorial), which you get by multiplying all numbers from 1 to n.

Contrary to your 36 possible combinations there's actually 720 different combinations for 6 layers. You get to this number like so:

In first place can be any of the 6 layers, in second place there's 5 possible layers left, third place chooses from 4 layers and so on. This means you have 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 combinations (which is 720 or 6 Factorial).

The new mob is the guardian of the filing room at the Central Bureaucracy on Futurama! Personally, I would have just ripped-off Zoidberg... whoop whoop whoop whoop! *scuttles away*

No. The Futurama guardian was a Beholder (from D&D), the Minecraft Guardian is not (no eyestalks, a fishtail, no visible mouth)

How can this bug's status be "resolved"? It still doesn't work!

I started out by finding all the regular biomes (not variations, i deleted them) I did not work. Then I visited ALL biomes, including the variations. I could not find "jungle edge M" and "mega spruce taiga hills" - i have searched for ages on AMIDST. I then tried to edit my .json file with my stats to see if manually typing in the two remaining biomes would trigger the achievement - but it did not.

At last, i tried to delete a biome that was near me, and then walk into that biome so to see if walking into the last remaining biome would do the trick. Nothing happened.

I am all out of ideas. Do you guys have any?

Did you try it in the latest snapshot?

posted a message on No Dungeons in my 1.7.9 worlds
Quote from amrisa

I've noticed that dungeons (such as skelly, zombie, and spidie) are what seems like to be even rarer than in ealier versions. To conferm this, I opened up MCEditor and found no dungeons at all. I'm wondering if it is a bug in 1.7.9 or did they just removed dungeons altogether?w

Seed?

It's possible there are no dungeons in your vincinity (sp?) as dungeons need a connection to caves and caves are rarer.

Success!
(Sort of)

I cleared my list of visited biomes in the .json file and visited ONLY the normal biomes excluding 9 Sky (The End), 8 Hell (The Nether), 10 FrozenOcean, 20 Extreme Hills Edge (also excluding all variants) and I got the achievement.

Including even one of the other biomes prohibits you from getting the achievement.
And that's the problem.
In Survival you can't get to the achievement without visiting Nether and End, also you will not be able to miss all variant biomes and sometimes you even visit only a variant, because it is almost indistinguisheable from a non-variant: e.g. Swampland and Swampland M.

To work right, this achievement should check if you visited a biome or its variant (or both) and ignore all visits to Nether and End.

Quote from dinizintheoven

I've only got one further idea, and I can't investigate it. There are "missing" M biomes, which would have biome IDs assigned to them, i.e. the regular biome number plus 128. There are no M variants of oceans (Ocean M = 128, Deep Ocean M = 152 and the even more hypothetical FrozenOcean M = 138) or rivers, the Nether or the End ("Hell M" and "Sky M"), no Ice Mountains Spikes, no Mushroom Island M, Flower Forest Hills, TaigaHills M, the beaches... and others.

Maybe the achievement is checking for these nonexistent biomes as well.

But who can tell...

Trying these biome ids in Flat worlds gets you a crash. so don't try them.

Did you go to the nether and the end? You need those too. -Lefty

I did.

Quote from TheMasterCaver
If my theory is correct, the achievement should be unlockable by only exploring non-M biomes, then going through an End Portal ("The End?" is a prerequisite, as the Wiki says and confirmed by the code; as you get this achievement right as you enter the portal, you haven't actually gotten to the End yet, so it shouldn't include the End in the biome list).

I tried that one too in 4 variants:

1) without the two missing biomes and without sky/hell
2) with the two missing biomes but without sky/hell
3) without the two missing biomes but with sky/hell
4) with the two missing biomes and with sky/hell

Still: it did not work. :-(

I used MCEdit to change a world so I would be able to visit exactly the biomes I need.

Any more theories? I would love to try them out!
