    posted a message on Passive mob farm

    I think I figured it out, maybe. Because I'm on an island my biome for passive mobs is very small, surrounded by Ocean Biomes, my platform must be in the ocean biome chunk and so it's not getting any checks for passive mobs other than Squid.

    So I rebuilt a small portion of the island above the water line and will hopefully get some cows that I can lead up into my ranch platform and start breeding

    posted a message on Passive mob farm

    So I started a new world and choose a Island survival on Hardcore to mess around on, my challenge was to only use the single island, none of the islands I can see in the distance, and I can mine and build above and below as far as I want, everything was good, I mined down for resources and built some platforms above the water line, completely hostile mob proof thru the use of torches and slabs, one platform I built is a Passive mob farm, it's got lots of light and all grass floor now but nothing is spawning in the area, I have completely removed the island underneath down to 1 level under water to prevent hostiles from spawning down there, there are no Islands close by for the mobs to be spawning on, it's a real puzzle to me, I was expecting to get a few cows and start a cow breeder farm but nothing is happening

    Any ideas what I messed up?

    I am also having issues with the mending enchant, seems like when you receive an XP orb it just randomly assigns it to either your xp level or to a random item with mending, for me that's 4 armor, 1 sword, and 4 tools, that's 10 locations of it to choose from, makes it much harder to fully repair my pick, sad face

    posted a message on Are there xp farms that do work at this point?

    Only way that I know of to get above bedrock is Creative mode, I was intending to build the pigmen gold farm above bedrock ceiling but discovered the bedrock edition won't allow me to build above the layer 128 I think it was, so not sure if the gold farms were done in Java version or with a mod

    posted a message on Looking for swamp biome on my seeded world,

    Using creative mode to seed the world and flew around, ended up using Locate for a mansion and when I got there I found me a witch hut next to it, Sweet

    then in my main game as I was running around to get there I found another witch hut, hehehe go figure, they are still quite a ways from the spawn point but at least I know where a couple are

    time to start laying rails and make some connections

    Thank you again

    Moved due to archiving of the ole forum groups


    Playing Win 10 Edition version 1.2 now, seed -1649128113

    Looking for a Witch Hut so I can build a redstone farm, hopefully

    But so far I haven't found any swamps in this world, at least none that I saw, so easy to go right past a biome when exploring

    I did find 1 mushroom biome that I think is almost a swamp to the SW a ways from the spawn point but no other mushrooms and no discolored water areas that usually indicate a swamp, anyone have a decent tool for locating them, Just need to make my redstone farm and a gold farm and then I'm all good

    Thanks

    posted a message on Minecraft Server Not Working!

    I had a similar issue but I wasn't using a server, instead I had my connection thru LAN which doesn't require special setup,

    One laptop was my main and another laptop is a second acct, both xbox accts and both paid for of course

    the second acct couldn't even see the LAN game at one point after it had been working fine for several days

    I realized I had accidently set the world to Cheats on and when I switched it back to off I could see the game again and connect

    It's not really sounding like that is the issue you are having, but something to check just in case

    posted a message on Wheat farm issue

    Yeah, I am planning on a carrot farm and a potato farm using that method, but still playing around with this one to see if I can fix it, once fixed I'll probably build a fourth farm for the bread, I'll build my roof for the villager and see what happens, I'll make it 2 blocks thick for testing

    Thanks

    posted a message on Wheat farm issue

    Well, after watching some more youtube videos I created a house with a second villager inside that is trapped and has hopper/chest system n front of him, the farmer did go inside and threw bread at the villager and then went out and harvested a few plots and replanted, so must be an inventory bug. So I decided to move on for a bit and come back to this later as I could always use a stockpile of bread for my villager breeder system, but wouldn't you know it, Thunderstorm hit the farmer and I got a witch out of the deal, After cursing up a storm for the loss, I killed the witch and started up research on lightning.

    Any one know the parameters of roofs above villagers to prevent them from getting hit by lightning? Mine had a roof directly over his head, so I'm thinking maybe 3 more blocks higher and in a 5x5 overlap, is that enough? Do I need higher? does it need to be bigger? or is smaller good?

    Thanks

    posted a message on Anyway to convert Windows 10 Edition worlds to Java Edition

    I'm thinking that this is highly unlikely, I know this isn't helpful but I don't see how Win10 edition and java edition could be compatible, or Mojang probably would have included it in the Better together patch

    posted a message on Please help, Having tree sapling grow problems

    Try only planting one of the sapling, put it on the highest point of the island, and obviously make sure it's on dirt/grass block with nothing around it and nothing over it for a few blocks,

    I'm sure you probably already know all this, but you'll have to experiment to figure out why it's not growing,

    Also, what kind of tree is it, I doubt that the tree type is an issue since you got the saplings from the biome you are in, but maybe there is something someone knows about a bug with certain tree types, I know the Dark oak might be an issue if you only have 2 saplings, but again that probably isn't the issue you are having

    posted a message on Wheat farm issue

    So I created a Wheat farm with a villager(brown robed/Fisherman) to plant and harvest the wheat, I moved him over to the farm fresh so he didn't have anything in inventory, then I dropped about 12 stacked of seeds which he gobbled up and proceeded to plant, there are no doors anywhere within over 100 blocks so no village zone to mess him up, he did fine with planting, but he's not harvesting anything, I am using the Minecart with hopper on rail system under the farm which is suppose to collect all the dropped items and since he's inventory should be full in theory he should continue to pick up seeds and leave the wheat on the ground. But he doesn't harvest, I left the farm loading all night and the wheat is completely ready for harvest but he just wanders around. Has Mojang not fully implemented the auto farm feature of the brown robes? Any other ideas? Thanks

    Oh and yes Win10 edition

    posted a message on Golem kill spot issue

    Finally found a year old youtube video that resolved my issue with signs burning up. The trick on Win 10 is Hoppers then signs one the next level and then another level of signs above that then the lava on the 3rd level above the hoppers. Apparently the air gap below the signs caused the lava to burn the signs, placing another set of signs below them removes the air block/gap/whatever and this prevents the signs from burning up, supposedly the signs have no hit box for the golems to get hung up on and so they fall thru correctly and stand with only their heads in the lava thus not causing the loss of ingots in the lava. Much thanks to JackFrostMiner of YouTube for this video, testing it out now and working, just double checking the hit box of the signs before I call this iron farm completed
