Apparently I was the only one with the intelligence to foresee this update occurring.

I don't see why notch would be so evil. He should have that to a difficulty, like hard or normal and hard.

Don't be so full of yourself; There are a few others who have sighed a breath of relief for their own precautions. :P

This is the reason why I never put lava in my house.

OP- At least you can rebuild and make your base even more badass than the last?

You could just had removed the lava with an editor, but congratz on playing the game like a real player.
Lava now became the perfect griefing tool on multiplayer, i think lava now should only be transported in diamond buckets

Lol, I think somewhere it warns people not to be attached to their save files, I think this qualifies in that warning. I almost lost my forge, but I was quick enouge to stop the spread.

Yeeep. First thought: "lol, two of my bases are ablaze". Second thought: "People on the forums will be sooo mad."

I had a cobblestone fireplace... er, lavaplace. I made sure there was NO WOOD touching the lava. But hey, guess what! Apparently lava can burn stuff that it isn't even touching! So my house went up in smoke. Thankfully I was able to run in and save my chest of diamond and gold ore.

I once set fire to part of my house by accient, and I was like 'shitshitshitfuck wat do' then i realised you could put fire out by clicking. I can't imagine how scared and angry I would be if I had lava in my base and this happened.

Wait... so there are people who weren't using stone to contain lava? Seriously?


So people had wooden constructs for lava? Why? Stone is so much easier to obtain, not to mention that I wouldn't even consider trying wood because I figured this feature was already in game anyway.


I'm really confused how so many people are being screwed by this - certain cases sure I get it, but widespread? Seems odd to me. Do the little lava flareups (the lil spark flying thingies) ignite stuff? I assumed no.

Have to say, this update made me giggle, partially because my housemate likes building his craft-room out of planks. He came back from spelunking and found one entire side of the base missing from a single block of lava he'd buried over and forgotten about. Plus, seeing lots of stuff like this spring up makes me laugh :o


In response to Elandroth: Yes, the lava ignition can jump blocks.

I would imagine the flares are little more than decoration. Notch may choose to make something of the, though.

It is because this will still make your house burn:
