    Why do you dislike it? It's just an icon if you don't use it.

    posted a message on Eleytra useless with bad rendering

    The same thing happened to me the first time I tried to fly my elytra in the End - and I know why.


    I built a little tower, jumped off and used a firework to boost myself far up into the sky. The problem with that was the fact that the sky in the End stays fixed in your viewpoint, so it doesn't move when you change direction and you can't tell which way you're facing. That, coupled with my short render distance preventing me from seeing the islands (since they were so far below me), meant that I had no co-ordination whatsoever. Before long, I must have started to over-adjust by flying at too steep an angle, and I eventually stalled and plummeted into the void. Even when I opened the F3 menu, I was already falling to quickly to save myself.


    Long story short, flying in the End isn't as easy as it sounds, especially if your render distance is too low. Maybe you experienced something like that?

    posted a message on Minecon Earth Cape question

    There's no cape for Minecon this year and you shouldn't reply with any of your information. This email is almost certainly a scam.

    posted a message on Possibilties

    You could count the blocks/placeable items on debug mode - it contains every block and every block state IIRC. You can access it by holding shift and cycling through the world type button when creating a new world.

    posted a message on New water physics announced at Minecon Earth

    It fixes one of the most irritating design features in the game, allowing us to build better underwater and with water (and lava I'm guessing) in general. The drawback of breaking some contraptions is a heavy price to pay but it's worth it in my mind. Besides, building contraptions is all about ingenuity and evolving design, so I'm sure people will come up with some way around any issue. There's even been talk of Mojang adding-in a new, valve-like block that'd serve as a replacement for old signs, trapdoors, etc. .

    posted a message on Why Does MY Minecraft Look Horrendous?

    It looks fine to me. Some players on YouTube might be using shaders or a fancy resource pack, but that's about it. A lot of players (myself included) aren't able to play with the settings you've got in your picture.

    posted a message on Minecraft let’s plays you recommend for me?

    If you're interested in building, then I'd definitely recommend Hermitcraft. There are 5 seasons so far, each one covered by at least 10 players mostly specialising in building.

    posted a message on Does the existence of other platform in Minecraft harms the java version of the game

    If Minecraft had never been released on other platforms then it almost certainly wouldn't be as popular as it is today and wouldn't have been purchased by Microsoft for >US$ 2 billion. If that were the case, then Mojang wouldn't have as much of a financial backing to develop the game on Java and may not have progressed it as far as it actually has been.


    That's just some speculation, but do remember that Java edition, while being the original and beloved by many, is not the centre of the Minecraft empire - and for good reason. Bedrock has many more players than Java, not to mention it has a more financial potential. Think about it like this: Java is the father and Bedrock is the son. Originally, the father lead the way; he was stronger, faster and better in most ways. However, there will always come a day when the son realises he is stronger than his father.

    posted a message on How Minecraft becomes a bad game with PVP?

    Just because you dislike PvP doesn't mean it should be removed from the game. Servers and YouTubers cater to their audiences so, if they want PvP then the servers will offer PvP. Sure, Minecraft was originally designed around building and, later, surviving - but that doesn't mean it can't or shouldn't evolve.


    I'm not much of a fan of PvP myself, but I wouldn't stop others from enjoying it. How would you feel if the PvP community called for building to be removed from the game?

    posted a message on Anti-Name Sniping | How to avoid?

    You can't beat a name sniper. They're designed to update their account's name within milliseconds of the new name becoming available; there have been cases of multiple snipers getting a single name at the exact same time such that both accounts end up with the same name. Mojang usually intervenes in those situations but it just goes to show how quick snipers are.


    If the name you're after is extremely desirable and you're sure there are people sniping it then you're already out of luck. If you have any doubt about it being sniped, however, then there's no harm in trying to get the name manually.

    posted a message on Where did you hear about Minecraft?

    People at my school would talk about it here and there well before I actually took any interest - that would have 2011, maybe 2010.

    posted a message on Story Books! Inspired by Skyrim

    I like this purely because it adds depth to the game; it adds something without taking anything away. One thing I might change would be the container bookshelves, though. I don't think it's necessary for every single bookshelf block to be a container, one reason being that I'd find it a little annoying when I accidentally right-click on one in a large bookshelf wall. Perhaps, instead, there could be a new type of bookshelf block crafted with a chest and having a slightly different texture.


    As for the stories, I guess they'd all be pre-written. What if the developers didn't release a full list of the stories so that the community could naturally discover each one? Maybe some stories could be rarer than others; maybe there could be one storybook that's written in a gold-backed book being the rarest book (or even the rarest item at all) in the game. Maybe Mojang could even selectively implement player-written stories.


    One problem that I do see, though, is Minecraft's demographic. I'm guessing that there wouldn't be a whole lot of players interested in reading while they could be building, fighting or exploring. This might be an obstacle in such an idea being implemented, but then again, it wouldn't detract for the game for these players.


    I really like this idea and see a lot of potential in it. support
