    posted a message on slime farm not working

    I think they torches might interfere with the spawning. You might put them in the ceiling. (Make hole in ceiling, pop torch on side of hole.)

    Current realistic goals:


    1) Build several "spooky" themed buildings before Halloween.


    2) Build a gunpowder/music disc farm.

    posted a message on how to get spawners ?

    If you're sticking to strict vanilla survival, you can't move them even with Silk Touch. You'll have to find them and build a base around that.

    posted a message on Enchantment table setup help please?

    I think the corner ones still do. Check by placing something in/on the enchantment table. I'm thinking the 3rd slot, the max would be 30, even if you can't reach it (?not 100% on that?). If it is 30, you're fine.

    posted a message on Hi, I want to learn to build like a pro!

    I've been watching YouTube videos of structures I like, and duplicating them in order to learn. I am seeing some results: I designed my own pub the other day and I think it looks quite good, if I do say so. A couple of good YouTube builders are Pixlriffs and Grian.

    posted a message on New to Minecraft - please help me decide

    According to this (see link), you can get the Windows 10 version free when you buy the Java version. I think that should decide it for you. :)

    posted a message on Are mineshafts worth exploring?

    They're great if you want to build a roller coaster. :)


    I try the explore-and-block-off method when exploring. Worse comes to worse, I can always dig straight up.

    posted a message on Can't Find Enderman??

    Yeah, the large, flat (and yellow) surface of a desert is the best place to find them. Also you don't have to worry about rain there. One thing you may have to do, since you mentioned so many husks, is to kill other mobs so that the endermen will have chances to spawn.

    I've used this design in Skyblock before, it's pretty cool.

    Sorry about my ignorance, but what does SMP stand for?

    posted a message on What are the MOST IRRITATING THINGS that have happened to you in Minecraft?

    Playing in PE on a tablet, fighting skeletons in melee is almost impossible. I have learned how to handle it, some, but when I first started playing the knockback was just insane. I couldn't get close enough to ever hit them.


    Playing on a server, catching fire in the Nether seems to cause so much lag, I sometimes stumble around. Screen informs me I'm dead before I even know I've stepped in lava. (This is not 100% of the time, but it can happen when the server plus my computer are both laggy.)

    posted a message on Hardcore Mode

    BTW, do you have a feeling for a breakdown on types of death so far? Like, is it 60% falling, 20% lava, 20% mobs, etc? If you can find your main "killer", that will help in future avoidance.


    Re: the bucket. I've seen people save themselves from falls by quickly dumping the water in front of them. I've never been quick enough for that. So another tip might be to practice life-saving tips in creative mode.

    posted a message on Hardcore Mode

    I'm not sure if you suck or not, but Hardcore is a real challenge. BTW I have yet to go and beat the Ender Dragon, even on simple "Hard" mode.



    Tips for staying alive (and forgive me for being a bit flip):


    Don't fall


    Always have an exit strategy wherever you are. I've been in a cave before where one mob at a time was super simple, but then 3 zombies came along and soon I was dead. It happened because I was confident I could kill them. If I had ran, or even sallied back and forth in attacking, I could have been OK.


    Always have torches and a bucket of water.

    posted a message on What to build in survival?!

    Nothing but a general idea - do searches for "minecraft survival builds", "minecraft survival projects", etc. until you see something you like.
