    posted a message on Is it possible to find jungles in new chunks of old worlds?
    I went exploring on my oldest world (Started on 1.7)to an area I'd never been before and found a jungle complete with ocelots.
    They do generate on old maps.

    Quote from Dragonfree97

    I'm fourteen - is this normal? :S
    I sort of fancy this girl in my year

    Very normal.

    Quote from Dragonfree97
    and I have a man-crush (if that's not a phrase it is now) on this guy I know

    Yep, still perfectly normal. Most kids have same-sex crushes at some point but most don't admit it, often even to themselves. Don't worry about it. It doesn't mean you're gay and it doesn't matter if you are.

    Quote from Dragonfree97
    I'm deeply in love with a fictional character

    Not so normal, but not uncommon.

    No I don't have a girlfriend. I don't think my wife would like it.

    Happily married with a kid. That's me.

    posted a message on The Skylands is Comming!
    1.9?
    1.9 is gone. there will never be a 1.9.
    Minecraft is (at the time of writing this) at 1.0rc2 but should be at full 1.0 retail within the next 24 to 48 hours.

    And no, the skylands if it ever comes will not be in 1.0.

    If it's still in the pipeline (which I doubt) it will most likely be a long long way off and could even be paid-for DLC. However the way I understand things is the the Aether mod did it so well that Notch doesn't want to do it anymore.

    posted a message on Minecraft...In Skyrim?
    Ha ha. Within a short while of starting the game I found myself in a cave with ore in the walls and I was being attacked by giant spiders.
    'Looks like Minecraft 2' I thought! (hey, I can wish can't I?)

    posted a message on I really don't like Endermen
    They don't need to teleport in to your base, they can just spawn inside. As I understand it, Endermen no longer need darkness to spawn.

    The only way to stop endermen spawning is to have a low ceiling!

    posted a message on Abandoned Mineshafts Question.
    Yep, they're there.
    There's a cave entrance near spawn at -267,342 that leads straight to a huge one I think, still exploring to confirm!

    ...this is assuming that your seed is -2868101526453751052 and not 2868101526453751052

    EDIT: No, that cave doesn't lead to it but it IS just under that area!

    Yes, it's a bug, but Notch will never remove it. [/img]


    You're right! Notch WILL never remove it!

    But Jeb did! Sources here and here

    posted a message on Does anybody else ALWAYS do this?
    I don't tame wolves.
    I've been pushed into lava, off cliffs and had my escape path blocked from attacking creepers too often.

    If they fix wolves, then I'll befriend them.

    posted a message on Chest closing sound... was it a dream?
    Yes, chests used to sound like doors but the sound was removed to make way for a new dedicated chest sound effect.
    Because there hasn't been an official update for a while, the new sounds aren't yet available (see also: minecart sounds, endermen & others) because they're not in the minecraft.jar file that runs the 1.9pre versions, they're separate files that we haven't been given to download while the game is in the 1.9pre phase.
    As soon as the launcher updates properly on the 18th we'll have all the new sounds including chests.

    posted a message on Snow.
    Quote from Manhunt21

    Are you sure? I've played a lot of it and haven't found any. I see pine everywhere and no snow.

    Tell me your seed and I'll give you coordinates where you can find snow in your world. (as long as you're not playing 1.8)

    posted a message on New bed behaviour in next release!
    Quote from scrubking

    That's total and complete BS!
    If you light your room properly and place your bed away from the walls you will be fine
    ALWAYS
    If you get woken up it's because you are doing something wrong.

    No sorry Scrubking, but you are wrong.
    I'm not going to trawl through months of Notch tweets (or reddit or Google plus or whatever) to find it, but Notch HAS confirmed that the chance of being woken is intended.

    If it is as you say, how do you explain it happening in a mushroom biome? My bed is more than 100 blocks away from the nearest possible hostile spawn point.

    posted a message on New bed behaviour in next release!
    Just to be clear on this. As it works at the moment, no amount of light, no amount of security & no amount of distance from walls will prevent the slight chance of being woken by a monster when you sleep. (sleeping up a tree helps because hostiles can't spawn on leaf blocks)

    My base is in a mushroom biome where no monsters can spawn yet I'm still occasionally attacked in my sleep because the game is designed to allow that to happen

    This was a design choice by Mojang as a balancing issue against being able to skip the dangers of the night. There is ALWAYS a slight chance. ALWAYS.

    The new system is better because you have complete control. If your bedroom is secure, and well lit you will NEVER be attacked in your sleep. NEVER
    The pay off is that you have to be x distance from a hostile to be able to sleep. Simple to achieve.

    Quote from ShinQuickMan

    . I always thought that beds were fine just the way they were, minus that bug where mobs would spawn in a sun-bright room.
    NOT A BUG!

    posted a message on New bed behaviour in next release!
    There's to be a change in how sleeping & beds work in the next update.
    The chance that you could be woken by a monster even in a well lit & secure room that everyone hated and most thought was a bug (it wasn't) has been removed and now you can only sleep if there are no monsters nearby.
    This includes any monster within earshot on the other side of a wall.
    Apparently the moaning keeps you awake. (I had a bedsit like that when I was a student. Darn neighbours!)
    Once you're asleep you're safe and will not be woken by a monster in your bedroom ever again!
