    posted a message on Thoughts on Slimefun4?

    I played on a server that ran Slimefun. A lot of the addons were very useful for this multiplayer setting. My personal favorite was the fruit tree addon.


    I made a large orchard out in some distant jungle and returned 2 weeks later to find that a whole city had been built around it.The machines spared me many frustrations as I could just set them down, collect my resources, and walk away without having to traverse the dangerous mines left behind by my new neighbors.

    posted a message on My first Enderman farm

    That's pretty cool. I see you've gathered a bunch of xp already!


    If you're planning to fight the wither I'd recommend crafting a Smite V sword. Two people carrying them can defeat the wither in seconds, but even a single person can bring it down in no time if you're in the right place.

    You can fight it anywhere but you should preferably do it someplace where it can't fly off. Fighting a flying wither can be really annoying, even with an elytra, so I'd suggest doing it near the roof of the nether (Since withers can't destroy bedrock), or somewhere underground.


    Good luck! Keep us updated. ^_^

    posted a message on My quest to the nether
    Quote from Toadrunner»

    Very nice! You were really lucky with your world. It is lovely! It occurs to me that it would be fun to create a children's photo book about Minecraft adventures with accompanying text. It would be quite expensive, though.


    Sounds like a great idea. Back when Minecraft had more media coverage I saw a few books showing off building ideas and the like, but I don't think I've seen one showcasing an adventure.

    Would be pretty neat to see one, as I know a majority of players had never visited the nether before this update, and only a tiny fraction of us have made it to the end. An adventure book would have helped guide a ton of players.


    Anyway... I made it to nether the very day I made this thread but didn't have the time to upload the screenshots. Here's the build up to that first trip.


    Walked back into town and started trading with the villagers. The librarian was selling Mending books! I couldn't get one, but I did trade some paper to lock them in.




    I expanded my crop farm to increase output. Gardening is probably my favorite thing to do in Minecraft. I also found out baby zombies will run straight through berry bushes. Maybe it's because of the trap doors. They'd die on their own if I stood atop the doors.



    I repaired my tools, gathered some coal for future uses, and went back for another round of trading. This librarian is awesome. He also sells Looting II. :D



    Sometime later I set out on my first excursion with the hopes of finding a lava pool. I did not come across anything, but I did get a nice view of my little homestead as I was heading back. I'm always very comforted by that soft glow in the distance when traversing the dangerous wilderness in the middle of the night.



    The next morning I set out again and spotted a sunken ship not far from home. I found a lot of goodies but was happiest with the bamboo.



    The next day I went back to trading. Normally I'd only bother with some farmers and a cleric at this stage of the game, but this time around I wanted to gear up before visiting the nether so I leveled up an armorer.



    I also prepared my future toolsmith.



    Sometime later I decided to use my treasure map as I continued my search for lava. I followed it for a bit and ended up at the very ship I found it in. The buried treasure had been just a short swim away all along! :(



    My search for surface lava continued as I headed out in one final direction. I didn't find any but I did stumble across some wolves, and a little flower biome.




    By now it was becoming pretty clear I wasn't going to be finding any surface lava anytime soon, so I took some of the diamonds I found in the village and set out to find some underground. It took me a while but eventually I got what I'd been looking for.



    By the time I finally surfaced everything in my farm was fully grown. I harvested everything I could and headed out for one last round of trading.



    My toolsmith turned out to be very handy as my diamond pickaxe really needed replacing.



    I threw a little food party before heading out for the nether. :P



    Then finally there it was... My nether portal.

    posted a message on What does YOUR username's seed look like?

    That's a nice seed. Savanna's, plains, and deserts are great starting biomes. They have very good visibility, are easy to traverse, and can spawn a lot of animals and monsters.


    Mine is AstralMagic. It is highly unremarkable. :P


    The spawn point is your ordinary Minecraft forest.



    To the north there is a taiga with two mountains visible in the distance



    To the southwest there is another mountain, and some plains a bit west of that.



    There's a snowy taiga to the east, and a tundra to the southeast.



    As I was uploading this I realized I could have used Optifine to get a better view of my surroundings, but I'm too lazy to go back and redo the screenshots. :lol: If there's anything of interest in the distance it'll remain a mystery.

    Very tragic. I've had some terrible mishaps of my own when playing on autopilot. :(

    You could always dye a sheep and pretend none of this ever happened. :P

    It depends on your difficulty settings. On Hard there is a 100% conversion rate, on Normal it's 50%, and on Easy it's 0%.

    If you want your villagers to be turned into zombie villagers every time you have to change your difficulty to hard.

    Good luck! :)

    posted a message on Survival world names
    Quote from EditName»

    Using simple names would probably be the smart thing to do. Maybe my problem is that I try to come up with something fancy for every world I make. :lol:
    Quote from LoRaM100»

    Sounds like a good way to keep everything in order. I'm going to start naming my disposable worlds in this format. What I've been doing until now is discarding them asap to avoid clutter, but that shouldn't be a problem with tidy names like those.
    Quote from Jancrash»

    I did not remember FNG. It really is an awesome site.


    Wish I could name worlds as well as you. "Elcionne", "Astria", and "Akkyn" all sound hella cool. :o I can spend hours trying to come up with cool names like those with no success.


    P.S.

    I like to have my world name and world seed be the same. Went with Astria and found diamonds in a village chest just a few steps away from spawn. :lol:

    Looks pretty cool. That's a great location you picked out. :D Do you have all your survival needs in there?


    Very excited for 1.16 also. Been practicing to start up a new world at launch.

    posted a message on Had an interesting experience with an Enderman

    Started a new save today, Was taking my first few steps when I spotted an Enderman in the distance.



    I charged in bare-handed (as one does).



    I had been attacking it for a bit when it stopped showing any signs of aggression. I left the safety of my tree and even hit it a couple of more times with no retaliation. The Enderman had stopped fighting back, and I couldn't bring myself to kill it.



    Had walked away a fair bit when I noticed it was following me around. Everywhere I went it was never too far off.



    It even followed me down into the caves as I spent the night underground.



    It stuck around the next day and came spelunking with me again at night time.



    Then I bumped into a creeper as I was surfacing the following morning. Can't say for sure that the explosion was to blame for my Enderman's disappearance but I never saw it again after that.

    This is the only time I've encountered this bug. I would like to replicate it in the future. Anyone know how I can do so?

    posted a message on Why do people creat iron golem farms?
    Quote from nctkll»

    I've seen a lot of people on YouTube creating Iron golem farms and tutorials on how to make it. Wouldn't it be better if you just went branch mining since you can also find diamonds?


    I'm just happier on the surface. I wish there were more underground structures, and maybe some biomes in between all those tunnels of gray.


    I also enjoy the very act of making resource farms. It's very satisfying to take on a project with the specific goal of generating resources and then seeing that effort pay off.


    Edit:

    Also this


    There are over 300 iron ingots in that tiny corner.
