Yus!! More lambs to the slau.... uhh.... I mean, hooray for new friends!! \o/
If you're reading this and you haven't signed up, what are you waiting for?! Do yourself a favor and join the best server this side of the Sahara!
Shout-out to the most kickbutt server with the coolest admins ever (and this guy)!
Also, here's a sweet picture of a massive hole a bunch of us dug! Look how awesome that thing is! And it's not even done yet! Where else are you gonna see a bunch of people doing this?! As your physician/lawyer/whatever in the matter, I suggest you sign on up immediately!
It could possibly be related to the resolution that you have set, which is very non-standard. The higher the resolution, the more strain placed on the gpu, which will bring down your frame count (especially on a card produced four years ago when the standard was largely still 1080p).
I voted skeletons as well. Creepers suck cause they can literally sneak up on your, and since I play with my sound turned down, it's impossible to hear when they hit the fuse.
My potentially worse encounter with skeletons was a skeleton trap that spawned right next to my base in the water. I wasn't very familiar with them and as I walked by, the skeletons spawned and started shooting me. I just barely managed to get around a support and up a ladder to safety.
I think crying the sky is falling for something as subjective as textures is rather moot when there are thousands of resource packs that you can download to make the game look however you want.
What combat changes are coming out, though? I've not really seen anything talking about them. Whatever they are, I can see them having a greater impact on players, but it's still a rather small portion of the game. *shrug*
I like the idea of recreating a normal overworld biome into something that's completely underground. I might even add that to my list of ideas for the future.
As for something more specific, I was thinking about a current base I have. It's like a mega treefort that I'm working on and it gave me an idea. What if you built the area to look like the roots of a super, super large tree (thinking Yggdrasil world tree levels of size)? Granted, that innately doesn't have any redstone contraption-ness to it inherently, but you could still make any redstone contraption or farm under, on, or even in the roots.
I think keeping yourself engaged is a real test of creativity. Find inspiration for builds and such by just looking around online. Pinterest is great as you can search for Minecraft related pins and just see what others are building. Hopefully somethings will motivate you to do something similar.
For me, I also took to playing on servers with others. That way, I can have community related builds and events, as well as a chance at doing things differently. For both servers I'm on plus my own saved game, I have vastly different bases of operations setup in completely different locations. So even logging into each gives me a different feeling and their own sense of purpose.
A server I play on had a broken farm that someone started. I spent a day reworking the whole setup and getting the spiders to funnel into the elevator properly. My biggest issue was dealing with them climbing up the walls. Never occurred to me to use cactus to kill them if they try climbing up.
In other news, I like your grinder as opposed to the farm I ended up building. The experience they give is so minimal compared to other farms and it seems no one has a need for eyes (on my server). I might see about changing it up so it's more useful in the long run. Possibly a double system that I can change to either bring them up an elevator for farming, or send them down a lava grinder for afk strings.
I think the higher levels can easily be handled by requiring a higher level of experience or by simply requiring a certain number of bookshelves (as is currently required for higher level enchants. I do agree that a tiny bit more control would be nice, though.Oh I wish for enchanting to be redone. I would like a way to craft a "recipe" for an enchantment then add it to the book on the enchanting table. That way you can choose what enchantment you get and on what item. I don't know how leveled enchantments would work, unless you had to upgrade your enchantment recipes in the book with experience. Bookshelves would also be kind of useless, but maybe you use the books to make the recipes instead.
What is your in-game name?: jettzypher
What is a name you would prefer to be called?: Nothing specific, I can go by my ign.
Age(16+) & Year of Birth?: 31, 1985
What is your Discord ID?: jettzypher
What timezone / country do you live in?: EST, USA
How long have you been playing minecraft?: Actively, just a few weeks, but I've been watching videos and Let's Plays for years and just finally pulled the trigger on getting the game. My hands on game experience is limited, but I have a pretty decent in-depth knowledge already.
Do you agree to abide by our rules?: Oh, of course! I think rules are necessary for a quality gaming experience.
Tell us a bit about yourself: Well, I do a bit of everything and have hobbies & interests across a broad spectrum of areas. I spent some years in the medical field but now work as a product manager and photographer. Most of my time is filled with games (of both the video and board variety).
Why do you want to join Infinity?: In my short time of playing Minecraft I've definitely learned a lot, but I know that I need some structure, direction, and interaction in order to continue feeding my interest so I don't get lost and bored. My interest in Infinity stems from wanting to find a larger community and server to play on with other.
What can you bring to the Infinity Community?: (Builds, Redstone, etc) Flexibility, creativity, and my willingness to always help people if asked. My interests generally lie with digging through the world and exploring, which can help provide a lot of people with resources (especially since I generally don't dispose of things unless I know myself or no one else will want them). I'm also hugely interested in redstone contraptions and am learning as much about them as I can. I'm aware that many people really don't mess with redstone, so being a resource to help with even simple devices is a huge boon.
What type of player do you classify yourself as?: (Introvert Hermit, Extroverted Social Player) I generally consider myself an ambivert, and I really kinda straddle the fence on this one. I engage with others in different games I play equally as much as I run around by myself.
Post some picture of your builds (If Applicable): Unfortunately, I have none currently as I am away from my home computer. Besides, my unique projects have yet to begin taking shape as I'm still amassing resources.
Anything else?: I hope my low post count and forum activity isn't an issue. As mentioned above, I'm looking for a community to be a part of to perpetuate my interest in the game. As such, I decided to come here and scour around for a place to call home (thus requiring an account). And as the introduction states: I want in!~
Hello there! This is me in a nutshell:
What is your favourite thing to do in Minecraft?: Mining mostly, but I do spend time dabbling in just about everything. I love redstone contraptions and take time to watch videos and learn how to use it.
How would you see yourself contributing to our community?: I am familiar with some automatic systems that provide some quality of life improvements for others as well as am regularly around and willing to help others. I also typically hoard things, so I can help provide a good amount of resources for players.
What makes a good Minecraft community to you?: Frankly not sure, as I've not been part of one yet, but I imagine players that foster a friendly, cooperative, and collaborative environment that can inspire and help each other grow and get even better at what they do. Having spent years playing various mmos, I figure it's much the same as you'd expect from being in a guild.
Are you familiar with Discord? Are you comfortable using a microphone in a chatroom?: Yes and yes. I don't regularly chat, as I'm rather quiet, but I do have capabilities and don't mind doing so if needed.
Tell us a little about yourself, an example would be other games you like to play or how you chose your IGN: Oh, where to begin. I currently work as a product manager and photographer for an e-commerce business. My hobbies and interests span across a wide gamut of areas; it'd really be easier to list things I'm not interested in! My favorite games are rpgs. I've been playing World of Warcraft very regularly for over twelve years. I love the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series, as well as games with similar themes as Borderlands. I ended up picking up Minecraft after years of watching Achievement Hunter videos as well as a needed change of gaming pace. My username/ign is something I've had for about a decade or more, which was derived from an old nickname I had when I was a kid.
Also, I suspect that my post count may make this seem a bit suspect, but I assure that I'm a real, normal(ish) person without any ulterior motives. I signed up here predominately to find communities and servers to play on and am just getting started on applying to some places. Cheers!
