    posted a message on Very highly efficient mob farm? 1.8+
    Quote from getfugu»


    I have to actually disprove the Mumbo one. His concept is fantastic, but the video itself it too outdated. Mumbo has great idea, but sometimes he fails to follow up with all the better improvements that come up later. I like the guy, but this is one of those cases.




    Cheers, ~Fugu


    I just build Mumbo's one in my singleplayer world, and unless you need to supply an entire server with loot, the rates are very good (about a full double chest every three or four minecraft days)


    I will def look into the changes though, just for the fun of it!

    then can I make a house without a floor? lol


    lol... yeah, true.

    Although you could just build it straight on the grass and get your feet wet in the morning dew i guess.

    posted a message on house

    When i build a starter house, i always make sure to have the following:


    -room for some storage (about 12 double chests should do in the beginning)

    -room for enchanting (includes anvil and chests for books and lapis)

    -room for furnaces (8 furnaces will do to start with)

    -room for brewing (3 sets and some chests for bottles and ingredients)

    -room for a bed

    -room for a portal


    Apart from this, a house is a house, it has at least 4 walls and 1 roof, the design is of course up to yourself.

    posted a message on Does anyone actually use minecarts for transportation?

    I use rails between portals in the nether when they're too far to walk. And in some redstone contraptions as well of course. Never in the overworld, as i travel by foot to explore, and through the nether to get to different places of interest once portals are set up.

    posted a message on Please Help me!!!

    I have had the same thoughts, although i have recieved some awesome feedback to my journal, i am very well aware that it stops being interesting pretty quickly because no matter how cool and interesting your builds are, a journal has to be exactly that, a journal, and not a show-off-your-work-thread. It has to have a story, or something that makes it more interesting, something that creates a dialogue maybe.


    I haven't been posting on my thread fo a little while now, as i know i'm very bad in "story telling" and can't really find a way to make it more interesting than show everyone what i've been doing. So you're not the only one in this situation :)

    posted a message on First Inventions

    Using command blocks is not really a redstone invention IMO, but that's just me.


    I figure out a lot of things on my own, but i never think of it as my own invention, because by now you'd think that everything must have been done at least once in MC.


    I also use the different redstone contraptions that are already invented, you know, clocks, BUD's, pulse generators, T-flip flops, all that jazz, and combine them to get the result i want. Not sure if i can call it my own invention when i do that either.

    posted a message on Keyboard shortcut to fill crafting table?

    If you need to craft a lot of iron blocks for example, you could fill up your inventory with something else, except for your hotbar, and then destroy a chest full of iron ingots and use the bulk crafting method as described above. If you stand on a pile of ingots so to speak, your hotbar will automatically refill all the time.


    I think this would be the quickest way to do it.

    Quote from austen_95»

    I do this all the time, probably a little too often to be honest. Even sometimes if I am traveling at night ill do it, i'm such a coward. I also don't have the guts to click the lock button in the settings.


    You are not alone my friend!


    I clicked the lock button, But when i restart the game for the next session, it's unlocked again. I don't know if it's supposed te be like that, you'd think it's a part of the world save and keeps it like that.


    I don't switch to peacuful ever, but i tend to sleep a lot LOL. Specially when i'm building something, i get annoyed by all the mobs keeping me from my work.

    posted a message on Survival journal - world of Eldon

    I heard so too, but either it´s never removed, or it was added again. The thing is, endermite used to spawn when endermen where attacked. That is removed. Now they spawn every now and then when you throw a pearl. This trick only works when you spawn one with a pearl, and it doesn´t work with a spawn egg. Maybe that´s where the confusion comes in. Anyway, the endermite lure the endermen and around the endermite is a gap with open trapdoors where the endermen fall down. You can see what happens in the first 20 seconds of Docm´s video here, although my design is quite different from his, it´s the same idea.

    Thanks man! Glad you like it! When i started playing minecraft years ago, i only played creative, so i got to practice building a lot. I also often try out things in creative before building them in survival.


    Recently i have been building an endermen farm. One with the endermite, and it´s very effective. There is a spawning platform with 1,080 spawning spaces and an endermite in the middle surrounded by a gap with open trapdoors. Then there is a 43 block drop, to get them to one hit kill. The building has 2 floors, one with the platform they land on, with hoppers to collect the pearls into chests, and one floor underneath that with a place with water where i can put a TNT directly under the platform they drop on. It takes only a few seconds for them to fill up the platform again. When i kill them manually, i can´t even keep up, they spawn quicker then i can kill them.


    Now i just have to build a railway from the island and polish up the place a bit more. Get an enchanting set up i guess.


    Here´s some pics:



    Starting the build. You can see the beginning of the two floors, with the landing platform in the top-middle



    Lol, this guy spawned in the box where the TNT is going to be placed eventually. Got himself stuck.



    Building up



    A lot spawned already when building the platform



    Finishing up the build



    This is the box i´m going to spawn the endermite in, by just tossing enderpearls until i get one.



    I placed a rails, where i can put a minecart to capture the endermite. It only took a few tosses to get him, but them i made a very stupid mistake. I forgot the nametag! I have to name him of course, otherwise he´ll despawn. Trying again....



    And there it is. Lots of endermen in no time.



    Down here i place the TNT



    And up here i collect the XP



    Here are the pearls collected, also on the first floor.


    I´m very happy how this turned out. It didn´t seem to work in 1.8.1 so i switched to 1.8.3. I don´t know if that´s correct, but seemed like that. I also had to experiment a little with the placement of the endermite, it´s seems that it has to be in the right line of sight. That could also have been the problem.

    EPIC... just epic. There are no other words that could describe this world and your building skills!


    Wow, thank you so much!


    I have a lot going on still, but the last few days i did a bit of work in the nether and made the end portal room a bit nicer.

    The portal to the stronghold, the nether fortress and the way up to the general nether mob farm are all very close to the nether hub, so i made a couple of tunnels without minecart, because it´s easy walk distance.


    I also made an elevator to the mob farm, which sits way above the roof of the nether. I chose the easy one, with the minecarts, where you just look up and hold right-click to hop into each next minecart.



    This is on top of the roof, and the bottom of the elevator to the farm



    And up to the farm



    Here you can see how close everything is. On the bottom left corner is the nether-hub, then there is a fortress that i´m adjusting for wither skull farming, and next to it is the portal to the stronghold (as you can see the stronghold is close to world-spawn and i found it only by accident while caving) And to the right, inside the hill is the elevator to the nether farm



    Starting the lay-out for the tunnel



    And finished



    From the outside





    And iron door to the nether fortress



    To the elevator



    Starting to work on the end-portal room



    Main room done. I want two different rooms still, on each side of this room. You can see one of them, where i stored my building materials and a temporary bed, because i walked into the portal a couple of times when building..lol





    That´s it for now. I think i´m going to build an endermen-farm next. I like to have an endless supply of ender pearls and even though i haven´t done much enchanting lately, i need quick xp because my gear is starting to wear out and i can´t be bothered to AFK at a lousy skeleton farm for hours.


    I think i will go for a TNT endermen farm, where it´s like BOOM, 30 levels in a second. I´m going to look into different designs, but are drawn towards something like they have on the Hermitcraft server, i like that one. It´s good fun.

    posted a message on How to fill multiple chests?

    I haven´t tried it out, so don´t take my word for it, but i would think that you should be able to use the same mechanics as item sorting for this, to keep at least 4 of the slots from filling up with iron.


    Standart MC item sorting:

    posted a message on How to create rainbow beacon

    That´s nice!

    But would´t it be much more compact and easy to build if you have just one redstone signal spiralling around the beacon all the way to the top with a repeater with delay before every piston, instead of getting the signal all the way from the bottom and up every time?

    posted a message on How can a chunk be unloaded if you die there?

    My guess would be that if you die and then respawn at a point far enough from the chunk where you died for it to be unloaded, then your stuff should not despawn. But if you go back to collect your belongings and you come close enough for the chunk to load again, but it then takes more then 5 minutes for you to find your stuff, then it will despawn. Maybe it helps to decrease you render distance to tiny, so that the chunk doesn't load until you're very close.
