    posted a message on Minecraft Better Together Update Questions

    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 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 Panicking over Cross platform future update

    The FAQ: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/better-together-faq

    and on twitter: @popsramjet has provided some information as well. Apparently he is the Executive Producer for Minecraft on all consoles. 4J Studios twitter account referenced him for any questions regarding the Better Together Update.


    I try to only share reliable information provided by 4J/Mojang/Microsoft (and the voices in my head, well, you know, the reliable ones).

    posted a message on Panicking over Cross platform future update

    The 'Better Together Update' is actually a separate game, not an update like the name would imply. If you choose to download the new game when it is available you will have two minecraft games on your xbox; the 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' and one that I believe will simply be called 'Minecraft'.


    My understanding is that once the new 'Minecraft' is released the version you currently have will remain and no future updates will occur to it. Your redstone contraptions should be fine on the current version but might not work if you transfer the world to the new 'Minecraft'.

    posted a message on Best new feature on Minecraft Console edition

    People really should stop using the forum to spam their youtube <_<


    I didn't mind it. The video was short and to the point with no yelling or obnoxious music blaring.

    posted a message on Minecraft Xbox One Edition: Official Bugs Discussion

    The south side of iron bars and glass panes take up their entire quadrant. The player should be able to stand right next to iron bars and glass panes and actually be able to stand on the block that is directly below the bars and/or panes. This can be achieved on the north, east and west sides. The south side will not allow you to, you will be standing on the block beside the one the bars or pane are on.


    I didn't try all colors of glass panes so I don't know if all are affected by this bug. Fences and end rods seemed to work as expected.

    posted a message on Please Help!! Farmer Not Replanting!

    For future reference, I believe it is best to fill the farmer's inventory completely with seeds from the beginning. If they have wheat and seeds in their inventory it is possible for them to run out of seeds and then fill up with wheat, preventing them from being able to replant.


    For your particular set up, how are you replenishing the farmer's seed supply? If the water is harvesting then I would assume the majority of seeds are being collected as well and not going to the farmer?


    You may want to look into the auto farm design with a mine cart running under it.

    No, I mainly asked so that if anyone knew of plans to change it, they could say so. I did read up some about the game, unless one specifically looked for information about the world size in comparison to the PC version, there was no information on world size readily available. Obviously, I didn't think my complaint would change anything.I was looking to mildly vent about the game, as well as to find out if anyone knew about future plans. If you wanna fanboy out on me about it, that's your business, but don't expect to convince me that this isn't a disappointment for many, especially for a game they are asking you drop 20 bucks for.


    P.S.: I've probably been gaming since long before you were born, and am pretty decent and finding information about
    games, again (for obvious reasons) this is a thing that is not highly publicized, and in fact wasn't even mentioned in the reviews I did look at.

    Well, search skills aside, the game is $20 and provides quite a bit of value at that price (for most players). I'm wondering how much you actually played it or did you just discover the map isn't nearly as big as the pc version and decided the game is crap?

    I've put more hours in to console Minecraft than any game I have ever owned. I purchased the game shortly after it was released and I still sometimes play on the very first map I ever made. Even after all of this time I have yet to exhaust the map of resources nor have I come anywhere close to running out of room.

    Obviously, if 4J could somehow make the maps larger and the game still function properly I would be all for it, but I would in no way consider the map size "intolerable" or even a slight impediment to someone enjoying the game.

    P.S. Not that age necessarily correlates to maturity or intelligence, there weren't many video games being played before I was born and it is doubtful you were playing any that may have existed at the time.

    Yeah yeah, I know the Xbox 360 is old etc.


    Seriously though, the world is so teeny it makes it hardly worth playing, I mean...it is a small clump of islands.


    Might as well play Terraria, 2d but at least you wont hit the end of the world running for 3 minutes...really wishing I could get my money back, I would not have bought this if I'd known beforehand about the dismal world size.


    Do they plan on improving this at any point?


    I really don't buy that this is simply a technical hurdle.


    The game has been out for a number of years now. The size of the map is no secret. There are many threads within this forum discussing the world size and/or asking for it to be increased. There is no legitimate reason you were unaware of the size. If you are unhappy with your purchase it is your own fault. Caveat emptor...

    posted a message on Creating a biome.

    No, the area you plant the saplings would remain whatever biome it already is. There isn't a way for the player to change a biome to a different type.
