    posted a message on Adding more Monumental Buddhist Stupas to the Minecraft Stupa Plan

    Here are pics of the inside of a drum on one of the smaller stupas and the beginning construction of one.

    posted a message on Adding more Monumental Buddhist Stupas to the Minecraft Stupa Plan

    It took about 5 months, but I finished the 177 block tall monumental Tibetan style Buddhist stupa in survival mode. Next, I'm adding 8 more stupas that are 1/3 the size of the primary structure, on the corners and sides of the monument. Those are going up pretty quick ... When I have all those built, I will decorate the exterior of the main stupa. Then I will do landscaping around all the stupas and make a series of interconnected parkways with trees, fountains, and paths.

    posted a message on Annoying instruction upper right. How get rid of it?

    Mojang/ Microsoft: The pop-up dialog is superfluous, it can't be avoided, and it is not useful for all your users. Most players are smarter and more resourceful than this, and don't need priming with dialogs that amount to being automated spoilers. Veteran players do not need it. Please don't clutter the UI with busy little things like this.

    Microsoft can do whatever they do. It is their game. If they get feedback on forums, where people post comments, some of it strong feedback, then possibly they'll allow players who feel passionate about a new UI feature to have the option to turn it off. I don't like the direction this leads, not having control over UI notifications I am seeing. What next? Little advertisement messages I can't control? It is creepy.

    I'm guessing from the responses here that there is no way right now to turn this annoying pop-up feature. I'm hoping people at Minecraft read forums and will allow users to turn off forced notifications. Please don't assume pop ups will be universally wanted or helpful -- for a lot of people, these are not needed at all. Screen space in Minecraft is precious, and many users don't want it populated with UI activity beyond their control. Plus you might be doing something dangerous in the game and a pop up suggestion will come up, surprise you, and you will fall to your death or be killed by a mob.

    Hello there -- who knows the command that kills the Pop-Up notification window?


    Hey people on the Minecraft team -- this pop up window is really annoying and stupid. It is persistent and useless.


    - I don't want to do what it tells me to do to get rid of it

    - It also stays up forever if I don't do whatever task it mandates I should do


    Help!

    I've survived a creeper exploding next to me in diamond armor. Iron armor isn't tough enough ...

    View on the inside, about halfway up the structure, with clouds floating through .. tree farming too, onsite, for charcoal, faster than going and looking for coal underground.

    posted a message on Where do you build your base?

    Like what other people have said here: I start my first base right by wherever I have spawned for the first time. That way if I get killed before I make a bed, I will be resurrected in a safe place with some supplies on hand. The starter base will be as elaborate as you want it to be. You'll end up having many bases if you play in a world long enough and start exploring it. If the base is underground, make it at least 3 blocks deep from the surface to avoid creepers exploding above your head and blowing the roof off. If you make it above ground, have at least 3 blocks between you and the ground, for the same reason, avoid surprise creeper explosions. If the ground is relatively flat, without tall hills or mountains directly overlooking me, I generally will make a platform above ground that is about 5 blocks high, with a "spider guard" (one block out on the side) to keep spiders from getting in. You will want to make sure that wherever you build above ground, you do not have places of advantage for skeleton archers to shoot down at you. Fences are a great way also to surround your home fort, and control monster access to it. Light the terrain liberally around it with torches to keep spawning mobs to a minimum.

    posted a message on 177 Tall Stupa in Survival Mode

    I've been working in survival mode on a stupa, a traditional Buddhist shrine -- this is the third one I've built, each one getting progressively larger. The third iteration is 177 blocks tall, starting at layer 63. I have a book on traditional Tibetan art that has the measurements for the stupa, I transferred the proportions to graph paper to make an overall plan. The construction of the structure is so large, you can't see what you are doing overall, plus far off viewing is distorted, so you need a detailed plan.
