    posted a message on Hardcore rage! share your stories
    Some great stories here, enjoyed reading them. Congrats Daeghen on completing it, I can't believe you were not going to use enchants, sounds way too risky.

    got some good tips from you all like enchanting the golden apples and putting higher enchants on the armour etc, and what potions to use.

    Going to give it another try tonight and will try not to rush it too much and try and stick to the plan of not making a base or settling in an area. Might even use a donkey chest or ender chest so I can carry more stuff around. any more tips would be really useful.

    posted a message on Hardcore rage! share your stories
    So the other day I decided to try and play hardcore and attempt to defeat the ender dragon. I also wanted to play in a nomadic way, without settling in any area or making a base, chests or shelter (apart from murder huts for endermen) and try not to strip mine. So far I've failed 3 attempts. Hardcore makes me rage so much when I die, but I kinda like it in a weird way.

    1st attempt, found diamonds really quickly, managed to get enchanted armour, couple of stacks of arrows, 2 ender pearls. Went to the nether and to my luck, there was a nether fortress right next to my portal, and no sign of ghasts. Carefully went into the nether fortress, turned a corner and got whacked by a wither skeleton by surprise and that was the end of that one.

    2nd attempt, similar to the first, but this time, found a village, so enchanted more books and got protection 2 armour, and on the first attempt at enchanting my bow with lvl20, I got infinity and flame! had 3 golden apples and I was feeling really lucky, wanted more diamonds so did some more caving and I must have taken too many risks and stupidly started heading towards the monster noises, opened a huge cavern full of mobs, got poisoned by a witch, tried to run away and she chased me down and ended me. Felt much more equipped this time, but didn't even get to the nether, could have gone there but got too greedy for diamonds.

    3rd attempt, no villages this time, so gathered all the reeds I could find in order to get decent enchants, found a spider spawner, tried to make an xp farm, but realised it's quicker just mining ores, smelting iron and killing cows, chickens and mobs instead. slightly broke a couple of rules and made a shelter so I could farm more reeds and gather more stuff. got 3 stacks of arrows so far and enchanted armour and 10 spare diamonds. Went to the nether, killed a few ghasts and eventually found the fortress. I could see the blazes already, but I was too high up to get into the fortress, so I tried to find a safe way down and mined a block away without checking, walked forward and fell into lava, managed to get out straight away onto land but I just burned to death and raged hard again.


    Would be grateful if anyone has any wise words of advice for my next run. I'm gonna take a break for a day first as I can't bear to punch another tree after getting so far.

    I'd also love to hear your stories of trying hardcore and your failed attempts, or indeed your success stories.

    ok thanks heliceo. Me and my friend started playing last night, man it's so hard! So many spawners, it's crazy. Got to a point where we will have to restart the map, and we didn't even get past the cemetery.

    Hopefully second time through we'll be more prepared.

    OK I remove 1 defect chunk (and recreate it with 1.6.4).
    I also remove some land thats generate with the new 1.7.x land generate and recreate it with 1.6.4, after that i set it to repopulate.
    (That u can got the new blocks there. Also move normal spawn point near u buildings.)
    I also remove some massive entities places on u map to prevent lags.

    Future strange land marks i cant prevent from u, its the new map generator in 1.7.x.

    Thank you so much! I'll give it a try later. Yep we found the mineshaft through our branch mine, only the server was crashing all the time due to some incorrectly placed bat or something. Hopefully it's fixed now!

    Hi, will the Insomnia map work ok on 1.7.5? or should we change the server back to 1.7.2?

    thanks

    Hi Ritter_Kaldor, please could you fix our world? Me and my friend started playing this one on 1.6.4 then updated to 1.7.5. there are some visible chunk errors and in some areas the server crashes, sometimes we get stuck and spaz out in certain areas.

    here's a link to the world save, let me know if you need anything else.

    posted a message on Corrupted World? getting error io.netty.handler.timeout.readTimeoutexception
    Hi, I've returned to minecraft after a couple of years off, my friend set up a server and we started playing a survival world on 1.6.4. I have had no experience of running a server, my friend knows a lot about servers etc but is new to minecraft and only been playing a couple of weeks.

    we updated to 1.7.5, and often get the error message io.netty.handler.timeout.readTimeoutexception.

    If my friend restarts the server, it fixes it, but when I want to play when he's not online and it crashes, I can't get back in.

    I have a feeling that the world is somehow corrupted. I have noticed that when I go into a certain area it crashes. Also when we explore new areas, there are really ugly chunk border issues.

    Is there any way to fix this issue? and do you think that it is caused by a corrupted world?

    If it is a corrupted world, can I fix it?

    thanks

    Probably your graphics card, I have a terrible PC (Pentium 4, 1.5GB ram and Nvidia GEForce graphics card running on Windows XP) and Minecraft runs ok with optifine (about 30fps), but the settings still need to be low, I can just about manage on Normal render distance.

    Graphics cards on laptops don't seem to be that good.

    posted a message on What didn't exist when you started, that now you can't live without?
    Sneaking. I started playing a couple of weeks before they added this and let me tell you it's hard playing without being able to hold shift.

    Also I hate beds and charcoal. I like how beds reset your spawn, that is great, but I hate how they skip the night and make the game too easy.

    I'd probably miss sprinting too.

    posted a message on What do you use Silk Touch for?
    At the moment I just use mine for glowstone. Even with a Fortune III pick you may still only get 3 dust so silk touch is more efficient. I'll also use it for ice when the next update comes out.

    It can also come in handy for long mining trips, collect all your redstone and diamond (coal is a waste unless you really need it) with your silk touch pick and you can carry a lot more in your inventory without having to make trips back. then when you're done, mine it all at your base with a Fortune pick.

    Quote from aurora1979

    Yea point is noted about the title. I can't change it, and I think if everyone reads my post it makes sense. Clearly however, the title alone is not good and some people are rushing in with a retort without reading my post.

    I am interested in the idea of purchasing couple of slot server..... I don't have any friends that play either but I'm sure I could find a volenteer.

    How do I go about that? Could you PM me some details about what you did. Thank you.


    sent you a PM
