Ok, I did almost all the achievements (they are too easy and kinda pointless as of now, but I think achievement mods can be cool for adventure maps, custom games, and other types of mods).  I did all the other ones excluding two of them in less than 15 minutes.

I still have to push a pig off a cliff, and build a 1 KM rail.

Ok, I think I can figure out the pig one, but I'm confused about the 1 KM rail.

I looked on minecraft wiki about measuring distance, and according to: http://www.minecraft... ... g_Distance

1 KM is 1000 blocks!  Really?  I have to build a rail system that goes 1000 blocks?  6iron+stick = 16rails so I need 375 iron?  Not to mention the powered and detector rails (AWESOME addition by the way.  You just put one detector rail on each side of the powered rail, and your booster is set!).

Has anyone completed this achievement?  I don't understand why they would make simple ones such as building cakes, get a piece of wood, etc and then make us build a 1000 block long rail system.

Can someone help verify this?

Because they don't want everything to be TOO easy. They don't want you to finish them all in one gameplay, do they? They need to challenge you so they can make the next update right after you're done with them. Also, they want you to have enjoyment until more come out.

you only need to travel 1Km you dont have to go in a straight line and you can just loop ur track and make a roller coaster type thing, shouldnt be too hard if you have a couple booster tracks helping you

EDIT* I'm trying to get the achievement by looping but its not working, i guess the achievements with that special box around are kinda of long term cuz you need to find a saddle first to complete "When pigs fly" which are only in dungeons and i dont understand what to do for the pig achievement because you still cant control pigs and how far does it have to fall

Did this work for you?

I tried this already with a small 25 track circle, and I guess I didn't wait long enough.  I started getting dizzy.  Let me try it again.  This time I'll use 50, and count 20 revolutions.

Ok, that didn't work.  I counted 20 revolutions and I afked for like 5 minutes on top of that.  So I'm guessing it's 1000 blocks.

Lame.

I think I have enough iron for it, but seriously, all the other achievements take a few minutes and this one would take a hours (to mine all that iron).

did this work for you?  I don't want to waste the tracks on this achievement.  I'll build a roller coaster or something later to get this one done.

Finished all the achievements a couple of minutes ago, the rail one gave me a lot of trouble though - But I think you have to actually travel more than 1km away from where you start in one direction.

Eg: If you start at x = 0  z = 0 you need to travel to either x = 1000/-1000 or z = 1000/-1000

Not something like x = 500  z = 500 etc:


The first rail I built was a giant corner shape, it went out about 500 or so blocks and then turned and went downwards for a while and even though every time I rode it and then checked my stats to confirm I had gone further than 1Km I still didn't get the achievement.. So I built a huge extension further on and travelled in roughly a straight line and got the achievement.

As for the pigs, Idk how far you had to fall, but I got it from mounting the pig and then punching it a few times. On the 3rd or 4th It flew though the air, fell about four blocks and died.

yea the pig achievement is kinda tough, cause first try i punched my pig too often and it just died:( next time i did the expert line: i caugt a pick in a location, then digg a big whole infront of it then sit on the pig, then make water behind and let the pig get pushed down with the water;). i am still working on the railroad quest, but makes fun to make a railroad all over everything, i climed up and down several mountains with it already:D

The pigs have to die upon landing on the ground from their leap of faith.
Also the 1KM Rail thing really isn't all that "crazy", iron is crazy plentiful, and so is wood. Just make a huge rollercoaster type thing by using the game's physics engine to propel you down a block, across a few blocks, down one block, etc etc. <- I'd assume that'd work. look up some stuff on the wiki, it'll help. (I haven't done it yet honestly.)

i had a rollercoaster that ran 11 minutes and 55 seconds without looping. it should satisfy the 1 km achievement - maybe 2 or more km

the video link is

some comments are appreciated :)

I built an (almost) straight rail of more than 1KM (according to the stats), and I still haven't got the achivement...

Do we need to be one KM away from our start point in the X AND the Z coordinates ?

EDIT : Ok I got it. As Darkoviax said, the km is comptabilize only for one direction. You need to travel one km in X OR 1 km in Z.

i built an over 1km rail and failed to get the achievement. all i can think is that my pre booster-rail glitch boosters (where you use an adjacent rail with another cart on it to accerlerate) messed it up. has anyone else had this problem?

Are you going to build a rail system JUST to get that achievement?
