    If you right click on the item in the item frame it will rotate and increase the amount of redstone signal coming out of the comparator!!!

    There are 8 increments.

    Isn't it funny when people think that every snapshot should contain exactly what they want fixed. Did it ever occur to you that this has been in development since before the release of 1.7? Perhaps, since this update was based on the 1.7 code, they have to get it in place to see what happens before they start doing bug fixes? I'm not a programmer, so I don't know... just speculating. The point is, even with bugs in the game (not that I've even noticed any... I'm not saying that there aren't bugs, just that whatever they are, they don't affect my game play, certainly not enough to make 1.7 unplayable), it is still a great game, and has fantastic support and updates. And you know, if you believe that 1.7 is unplayable, well, then isn't 1.6 still fun enough of a game to play until such a time as 1.7 comes up to your standards?

    posted a message on Too many oceans, not enough NPC villages
    I wandered for thousands of blocks before finding my first village in the current snapshot. Luckily it is in an area that is really cool, so I decided to settle there.

    Oh, new portal frame sizes.. Although I haven't had any need for other size portals (yet).


    I just like the fact that I can center a portal in an odd-width room now. ;-)

    Not sure if it is new in this snapshot or not... I never saw it in last week's. The biome in the image is a Mesa or Mesa Plateau. It's made up of colored clays.

    Quote from Rayquaza3

    Saddles can be crafted by using the leather cap and bucket recipes on the crafting grid at the same time. O yeah Mevans the recipe isn't on the wiki


    Thanks. I appreciate it.

    Mevans,

    I have to say that this mod so far is amazing! I played it for a couple of hours today and can't wait to play more! Are there saddles available in Middle Earth? Or do I have to find them in the over world?

    posted a message on enchanting books kind of disappointment?
    So I thought the same way, but I wanted a diamond sword specifically for killing Endermen. That meant no Fire Aspect and no Knockback, and I wanted Looting. So I enchant the first sword, and I got fire aspect, sharpness and looting. Unfortunately when you hit an endermen with fire aspect they disappear. Then I enchanted a second sword and got looting again, but knockback, which also sucks against endermen. Then I went the book method. Yes, I spent many books getting useless enchantments, but in the end I have a diamond sword with unbreaking, sharpness, and looting on it, which is exactly what I wanted.

    So, I would agree with the OP that the books are overpriced and not as good, IF you don't particularly care which enchantments you get. Because typically with 30xp on a sword you will get 2-3 decent enchantments. But if you want specific enchantments on an item, then the books are the best way to go because investing the XP in paper and leather is cheaper than sticks and diamonds.

    posted a message on Direwolf20's Modded Lets Play series
    Quick question. I've done some research and have been unable to find it so far. In Direwolf20's mod pack, which mod created volcanoes made of black stone? When mined it would become black cobble. I have a world with only a few of the mods enabled, and I just realized that I have not seen a volcano, and I have traveled pretty far. In my other world (with all mods enabled) I had three or four within a thousand blocks of spawn. I thought that it would be in Extrabiomes, but I have that one loaded... and there is no mention of it on the Extrabiomes wiki, nor in any of the other mod descriptions so far as I can tell.

    Any help would be appreciated. I liked the look of the black stone bricks.

    posted a message on Direwolf20's Modded Lets Play series
    I'm up to episode 22 of season 5, and I have to say that the Filler from a few episodes ago has changed my life... my Minecraft life anyway. Clearing out big rooms is a task that I don't fear anymore! The only thing I don't like is that I don't get many of the drops when I clear an area. I don't mind that for rooms and such, I don't want to cheat it and get ores and such, but I recently used it to demolish a tower made of basalt brick and marble brick and lost all of it. Not too big a deal though, I then made a quarry from a couple episodes later and took out the center of a volcano with it. Now I have plenty of basalt. I just need to find a good marble spot to use the quarry on next!

    Direwolf20, this has been my introduction to mods and I jumped in feet first! It's a little confusing having all of these machines and such that don't necessarily work together, but I'm having a great time learning it all! Thanks!

    posted a message on Mystcraft
    I started using Direwolf20's Mod Pack about 3 weeks ago. Since this update was recent that means that anything that I've already loaded will not have the pages (so the two villages I found already for example?) But new villages, temples, etc... that are not in loaded chunks, should have them. What about the stronghold? I have not found it yet, if it is in an unloaded chunk then that means it should spawn with pages in it right? Or does the stronghold spawn when the world is first generated?

    posted a message on New to Minecraft on PC! need advice
    Welcome to PC. My first Minecraft experience was iOs. When I started looking up information on it I learned of the PC edition! It took a little getting used to, but now I don't even touch my iOs version all that much! PC is just where it's at in terms of how much there is to do.

    As has been said already, the wiki is a great place to learn. I really don't use maps that much, so I can't help you there.

    posted a message on Has this Mob Grinder Idea ever been done and would it work?
    Monkeyfarm had one which dropped the mobs into a room with an iron golem. I think he had cats to force the creepers into another drop or something. It was a pretty interesting build though.

    posted a message on Please help with melon farm
    You can have 1/2 blocks or non-solid blocks like glass above them. I have a melon farm with glass directly above where the melons grow and it works just fine.

    posted a message on What have you done recently?
    I finished re-working my storage room. I have a sorting machine for my farm items, and a bunch of other chests for the rest of the stuff. I still have to better integrate my chicken cooker, as it got blocked off by the sorting machine. I finished my basement level in Nether brick finally, it contains my enchanting room, potion room, and nether portal. I found a skeleton spawner while strip mining, so I built an XP farm around it. It works pretty well. I can go AFK for about an hour and get to 30 XP off of it, so that's nice. I have secret tunnels to my storage room and my mine, and I finished them in quartz block, with a ceiling of glowstone. It looks like a clean room. I might finish the drops into the storage room and mine in the quartz as well... but I have to collect a bit more of it before I do that.

    My melon farm is fully functional, and is triggered by pigs, so I just let it go. Everything drops into the collection streams and ends up at the sorter. I have to do the same for cactus and sugarcane still. I also need to build harvesting features into the other farms (wheat, carrots, potatoes.) I think I'll have a sorter at the wheat farm so that the wheat goes to my storage room to be sorted, while the seeds stay at the farm to be re-planted. Don't know what I'll do with carrots and potatoes... as I want them to go to storage, but I also need them to re-plant... hmmm.
