    posted a message on So, 1.2.3

    I can't answer for rafecraft but I did notice that when I first started up after the newest update I was getting low frame rates as chunks loaded in. I didn't notice it after that though. It may have been caused by all of the torches underground updating to the new lighting. That's my guess.

    Quote from DapperDinosaur»

    In the time it took you to make this topic, you could have just googled it.


    Create 4 ender crystals and put them on each broad side of the portal to the overworld where the dragon egg spawns.


    Haha, yeah, if only there was some sort of vast resource of minecraft knowledge available. Perhaps a wiki...

    posted a message on Wiki Entries

    For this new 'Minecraft', does anyone know what information (if any) in the wiki pertains to it? Is the PE info. consistent with what we now have or have things changed with the Better Together update?


    If not, is anyone planning on updating the wiki noting the differences between 'Minecraft' and 'Minecraft: Java'?

    posted a message on Minecraft Better Together Update Questions
    Quote from Riverboat1234»

    Mojang needs to post a new list of mobs for Better Together, and the commands (such as summon or give) or right click used to attain them.They need to take time to produce mob entities as new entities with proper names. For example, a mermaid is a mermaid, not a squid. I use Minecraft, Creative Mode, Peaceful. I use computers, not XBox. XBox and Microsoft are NOT able to answer questions about details within Worlds. They are helpful for tacking purchases. That's the limit of their scope.


    Mermaid?

    posted a message on Is the lighting really bad or am I doing something wrong?

    Narrow passage ways/small areas underground seem to not light up properly. A one wide two tall corridor, for example. Larger areas seem to light properly. I don't know if this is working as intended or a bug.


    I don't understand why you would mine around ores and not collect them. Not criticizing, just curious.

    I have encountered at least one slime underground, not sure if they spawn in swamps in this version.

    I saw beets growing in a village.

    Had my first ever encounter with a skeleton horse in this version (console edition player previously).


    I don't know about the other things, haven't explored that much in this new version. It is so much easier to get lost now and I am really really good at getting lost so I have been slowly, carefully exploring.

    posted a message on Make diff size maps?

    You can zoom out a map to show more land by placing it in the middle of the crafting table and surrounding it with 8 paper. I believe there are 4 levels of zoom, check the wiki for more detail.

    posted a message on too many mobs and animals
    Quote from ExoPesta»

    Sorry guys, but this is a bug I think... look at picture! Middle of day, in the middle of nowhere Zombie and there is no trees or other shelters to hide. And it's not burning.... Even more, stuff that I throw away some times not despawning at all....


    Not sure how it is supposed to work but it appears that in better together everything within a certain distance of the player operates normally but once an area is too far away time seems to freeze. Mobs don't despawn or burn, dropped items remain, plants don't grow etc. Hostile mobs at night seem to spawn outside of this area but they remain into the day because they are "frozen" and only will burn when you approach them, allowing time to move again because you're within that magical distance (within x number of chunks would be my guess).

    Definitely different than the way console works, not exactly sure how it works in Java, Win10/PE.

    posted a message on Looking forward to Better Together...why?

    Pretty good so far, the biggest drawback is that the UI isn't at all controller friendly: crafting, trading, etc.


    It also seems like you have to be pretty close to an area for crops to grow and even when they do it is very slowly.

    posted a message on Brick blocks

    Collect some clay, place it in a furnace to make bricks then you can craft the block with those bricks that you made.

    Hit the wiki link at the top of this page then search 'brick'. Works for pretty much everything else in the game as well.

    ... Then also with the new maps, they are to small.


    The maps are like the PC version, place paper around the map in a crafting table to zoom out the view. You can do this several times.

    Is it possible to block with a sword in this version? If so, how?


    I came across a baby zombie riding piggyback on an adult zombie. When the adult zombie died from the sun the baby then jumped onto the back of a pig and rode after me. Is this in console and I've just never seen it or what? Either way it was pretty amusing.

    diamonds seem rather scarce. Been branch mining solidly since update at y12 and found nothing. Decided to try at Y10 and quickly found some. Maybe they're just more scarce, but seems that they not generating at Y12 anymore?


    also it appears that crops, particularly sugar cane, is growing incredibly slowly.


    I found a deep ravine and saw diamonds at the bottom of it. Have found several more in caves branching off of the ravine. These were all around lava level, however low that is in this version (cords on the map would be nice). Might just be the area you're in. I found 11 or so diamonds in a fairly short amount of time.

    Sugar cane is growing very slowly, not sure about the other crops.

    also, sorry...but what is nerd-poling!?


    Same as columning: jumping and placing blocks in order to reach a higher elevation.
