149. You can make floating gravel by placing gravel above tall grass and then breaking the dirt block it's on. If a block next to it gets updated, then the gravel falls, which is useful for diamond ore or chest traps.
span>placing a torch under sand/Gravel prevent it from falling....
This only actually works if you can get the torch placed before the sand begins to fall. It's the same glitch that lets you swap out blocks that trapdoors and similar entities are placed on (if you're fast enough, the entity won't update and realize it needs to break).
I don't think we will see this topic getting updates soon. I checked his profile out of curiosity and he was last online in 2015, sad :'(
We just gotta continue the thread by adding more in replies or make a new one.
Given the age of some of these tips, it might be more productive to archive this thread and start another…
("1024 tips & tricks for 2022 MC" maybe?)
A small contribution to either effort.
#N ) Any redstone torch should be lit so the block it occupies is ≥8. (This will prevent lighting updates when the RS-torch changes state. [Less of an issue since 1.15-ish, but still useful.]).
#N+1 ) Mob spawners: Placing various farms/machines such that one can use them while keeping the spawniner active can make one's time playing wack-a-mob much more productive [and less boring]. eg. A pumpkin carving station within range of a the spawner. [Extra credit if combined with Mending Shears and/or a pumpkin 'stamp' farm.]
