    posted a message on Who here still actively plays the game?

    I dallied with Minecraft on the PS3 for a year or two. Didn't play much, mostly in creative mode.


    Then I watched StampyCat's 20 Block Challenge, where he tried to get all PS4 trophies whilst placing fewer than 20 blocks. Seeing him in survival, and how he handled it, convinced me to take the plunge. I downloaded it to my PC, and have been playing it heavily for close to a year now, all survival.


    I've cheated once. I got the dragon egg into my base. Somehow a creeper got in and blew up the place. Dragon egg displaced to the floor below. I forgot how to move it, so I just chopped it, and it disappeared. Tears. So I did some research and spawned a new one.

    week or so later, I chopped down and acacia near my bedroom, and there was the original egg on top of the tree. So I have two now. Oops.


    I've gotten all but the last advancement, and am working on a variety of crazy projects to keep my hand in. Haven't gotten bored yet.


    If I do get bored, I found a woodland mansion a few hundred blocks away. Thinking of going there, clearing it out, and making it a second base.


    there's just so much to do, I can't imagine getting bored anytime soon.

    posted a message on video card help

    My current video card absolutely can't handle shaders, and I really want to play with shaders. with christmas coming up, I may be able to get a new video card.


    what would be a good card that's not too expensive that handle vanilla minecraft with shaders on? I'd hate to buy a slightly better one, only to find out it's not good enough.


    I'm currently running an NVidia GeForce 9400/GT/PCIe/SSE2. I think. That's what it says on my GUI when i have F3 on.


    Thanks in advance.

    posted a message on What have you done recently?

    So, I'm taking a break from How Did We Get Here before I through my monitor through the window. I'm always one effect short, for some reason. Will go back to it next week.


    Decided to make a museum. all 637 items in the game. (within reason. I'm not doing each colour possible of leather armour, for instance.) Will put them all in item frames, so I'm breeding and slaughtering cows for leather.


    So far, what I have left is an enchanted golden apple (had three, ate them long ago), nether star, a mess of differently coloured shulker boxes, and all the lingering potions, which I'll use to make the enchanted arrows.


    I'll have an art gallery wing, with each of the twenty paintings. And a library, with one each of the thirty possible enchanted books. Only have five left of those.


    I'll have room for an aquarium wing for the fishies when update aquatic comes out.


    currently fishing, then hitting my xp farm when it builds up mobs, then back to fishing, to get enchanted books. I've caught one I needed, and enchanted four since I started.


    It's amazing how many name tags I'm getting.


    For the Notch apple, I'll just have to go wandering to find desert temples I haven't already plundered.


    The ghast tears to resummon the dragon are frustrating. I had a ghast spawn in literally five blocks in front of me. Fired an arrow, it despawned right before the arrow hit. I had to take a break after that. :-)


    And I need to summon a fifth wither for a nether star. Not for a beacon, I've got four of those, but nether star is an item, so it goes in the museum.


    Also trying to find some rabbits I spotted for my zoo. and I need to go get some llamas one of these days.


    Just trying to keep occupied.


    Oh, just to keep this a long post. My granddaughter and I were watching some Minecraft vids on the YouTube machine. She really wanted to watch Avomance's crazy gold farm. I don't need gold, but now we're building it as a project together. over 1,400 blocks of obsidian. Would have been nice to have some efficiency on my pickaxe for that. got them all in one lava lake in my mine. Left a huge hole.

    posted a message on "Noob" woodland explorer map question

    I used a woodland explorer map ages ago, and the mansion was 3-4k away both X and Z axis.


    Was just wandering around a couple of days ago, and there's a mansion like 800 blocks away.


    Sigh.

    posted a message on When might you use cheats in survival mode?

    I've cheated it twice. Once, I inadvertently chopped my dragon egg for some reason, and it disappeared. I looked high and low, nowhere.


    So I spawned one in.


    Days later, I was chopping down some trees, and there the original was on top of an acacia. Sigh.


    The other time, I had a shulker box disappear on me loaded with potions for the final advancement. I looked EVERYWHERE, couldn't find it. So I jumped to creative to get a shulker box, to save me a lot of time and effort of going to the end city for the umpteenth time and trying to find the last few shulkers I hadn't already harvested.


    I just now realized there was a spare in my mine. Sigh again.


    I made all the new potions from scratch, though.

    Quote from RFlowersยป

    Is FitMC the person you watched do it? He had trouble getting the wither skeleton to chase him in the End also. If that's not the video, you should check it out.


    That did it! He had the exact same glitch. Someone on his livestream told him to try yanking the skelly with a fishing pole. I had to do it twice, but he came unstuck and is now stuck in my end city.


    Thank you so very much!

    it was Xisumavoid, I'll check out FitMC, thanks.


    I've gotten a bit of progress. basically, if I stand right next to it and let it hit me repeatedly, it will occasionally unlock and move forward a few blocks.


    Progress is, literally, painfully slow.

    I know this can be done, as I saw someone on the Youtube machine do it. So I don't think block sensitivity is it.


    Thanks, though! ^_^

    posted a message on weird wither skeleton glitch

    I'm kiting a wither skeleton to the end city to finish off How Did We Get Here. My end portal leads to a small room in the middle of a bunch of end stone. I quickly realized that I had only carved out a passage up two high, and he was stuck. So I cleared it and he followed me up the stairs, until he got here:


    He's shaking and shimmying and not moving at all. I've widened it out, and there's nothing above him.


    Second picture, I went down and back up, cleared out a lot around him, and got him up a couple steps, and he sticks again.


    any help would, of course, be appreciated.

    posted a message on What have you done recently?

    I've been working on the final advancement, How Did We Get Here. I built a nether portal at the end portal, so I can take a wither skeleton into the End. Next up, finding a nearby ocean monument.


    I equipped my elytra, started flying around, and found one only about 500 blocks from the end fortress. It's right near the surface. In the process of building a platform over it for a nether portal, I discover that guardians can shoot through blocks. Ack!


    I tried building the platform out of obsidian. That fixed it. I had to build up walls around it because the guardians were shooting at an angle. I built a nether portal, jumped through.


    The plan is to connect the two nether portals so I can start at the ocean monument, get mining fatigue, jump into the nether, and quickly run to the other portal to get to the end.


    And both portals connect to the same portal in the nether. I spent 2 hours researching how to fix it. Finally found the thread here about Nether Portal Science. I dug through 100+ blocks of netherrack and built a new nether portal at the exact right spot, and it connected to the ocean monument portal.


    Nap Time.


    I suddenly awoke to realise what an idiot I'd been. I didn't need to build another portal in the Nether. All I have to do is get mining fatigue, jump through the nether portal, step backwards through the same portal in the nether, and end up at the end fortress. Saving me a huge amount of time.


    Woot?


    Luckily, I remembered I'm wearing glasses before I literally facepalmed. :wacko:


    Now I'm building a bridge from my nether portal connected to the End fortress to the nether fortress so I can get a wither skeleton. I estimate I will exactly use up all my cobblestone. No biggie, I've got loads of nether brick from when I rebuilt my nether fortress to increase wither skeleton spawns.

    posted a message on What have you done recently?

    working on a passive mob zoo. Dug a 5000 block long tunnel to Mushroom Island. Put dirt along the floor, because I don't have a silk touch shovel. After several days of shepherding it along, finally got mycelium back at my base. And now I have mooshrooms at my base.


    Also, just this weekend I finished up all the advancements except for How Did We Get Here. That's what I'm working on now, as the idea of luring bunnies the kilometer to my base is just tiresome. I'll get to it.


    So far, have a nether portal at my end portal. Luckily, it's only around 100 blocks or so from the nether fortress, so I'll be able to kite a wither skeleton into the end "fairly" easily.


    Now, I'm off looking for an ocean monument so I can build a nether portal above it. Mining fatigue is one of the effects you need for the last advancement.

    posted a message on What are your current goals?

    1. complete the last five advancements I need, including How Did We Get Here.


    B. complete my rail tunnel to the end fortress, which branching off...


    III. complete my rail tunnel to Mooshroom Island. I'm laying dirt down as I go, so the mycelium will move to the pen I've set up for mooshrooms back at my base. Yes, I know, silk touch, but I'm bored and have a LOT of dirt.


    d. clean up my villages. I tried to get just librarians to village II, but a bunch of others jump into the elevator, so it's a mess. Eventually, I want a village for each profession, but that's a way long term goal.


    5. clean out a woodland mansion. I have a map, and I've spent some time in it, got a few totems of undying, but I want to clean it out.


    VI. finish my zoo. just getting started, so i don't have much yet, but I've got a nice big plain outside my base to set it up in.

    posted a message on First time and/or most annoying / distracting mob encounters have you had?

    creepers. for some reason, I had a period of time where they kept appearing in my base. Took forever to figure out where they were coming from.


    Turns out they were spawning in my enchanting room. I was going for atmosphere in there and have black walls and roof, only lit by redstone torches, so the light level is below 8.


    Fixed it by getting one of my cats to stay in there.


    Then, just now, I was mining. Broke through into a cave. SIX creepers standing right there. Barely survived that one.
