When i play, my shitty connection makes me lag out sometimes. Shortly before lagging out, I noticed that breaking blocks, placing blocks, and picking up anything and even chatting doesnt work. So if you break a block and it appears again, or if you cant pick, it means either your internet connection is laggy, about to crash, or I just dont know what im talking about.
Probably the latter. But I dont know, maybe you should try other Servers ? can you still pick up things on them ?
Hey, I wanted to say that since the update, picking stuff up is impossible for me.. WHY? Is it the same for any of you?
Did you just die? I believe many people are having problems with picking up items after death, and the solution is to log out and back in.
I haven't had that issue yet, because when I died all my items completely vanished, so there was nothing to worry about picking up.
Also, some items just aren't pick-up-able last I knew .. i.e. Sheep's Wool, unless this has been fixed. I broke a chest once, to move it, and all the items spilled out but were not able to be picked up before as well. Lost about 300+ redstone dust and all the server's harvested wood.
If you first connect to a server with your old inventory, you will first of all vomit all items across the place. Then you're invisible for other players. You can't take damage, you can't pickup stuff, you can't press buttons. We call this the "Ghost Mode". When you want to fix this, place all your stuff in a chest. (Or even better: don't) and reset your inventory by deleting your player.dat file.
Then rejoin and voilà, you're no longer a ghost.
