    You're right, I did it to shrink the gap between floors of my farm. I have a hopper-dropper clock that spits it down a chute where a hopper minecart picks it up. It's my favorite farm I've ever built I think.

    I have a pretty good solution with mine for carrots and potatoes. You need to have a covered farm so you can control the light level. Place 2 hoppers 1 level beneath the farm layer. Next, place powered rails on top of the hoppers and place a hoppered minecart on the rails. Here's the tricky part, you need to knock the rails out from underneath the minecart, then, using pistons, shove 2 blocks of dirt into the minecart from above using the pistons.


    Remember those blocks and tweak the lighting in your farm so those are below a light level of 7. The villagers will attempt to plant the carrots or potatoes there and since you have 2 blocks that want to spit out the crops the will fly out and get sucked into the powered minecart. You can take it from the hoppers below and store it however you like.


    Note: that you need to use 2 blocks with low light so they continually update one another when the villagers attempt to plant the crop, then one in the adjacent block.

    Why do you want to join this server?: I like to play simple vanilla survival MC and would like to be able to play on a server with others to see what other people have been able to create over the years. I normally play locally with my kids and get a little tired of them griefing the crap out of my builds. Thanks for the consideration[/b]

    I'm 38 and am looking for a place where I can build and not be griefed by my children. Also, looking to help out and learn from others.

    I leave 3 blocks in between my tunnels. The chances of there being a 1 block wide vein that happens to be in the blocks I didn't mine are pretty slim. It's more efficient by 50%, and though you may miss a vein or two you can cover much more ground. I also mine with my feet on level 11.

    I branch mine at 11, carrying water for lava. I also make sure I have a fortune enchanted pickax.

    Switch to creative mode (if you don't mind cheating) and fly around.

    Love the extreme hills! Great views, great places to build homes, great places to build minecart rollercoasters!

    Quote from Victoria_

    I grid mine, in a rather obsessive way.

    My tunnel sizes and positions are consistent throughout, they are 2x2 tunnels on a 5x5 grid (so leaving 3 blocks between tunnels). Torches are always placed in a one block alcove in the top central block of the north and west faces of these remaining walls.

    The very odd thing is all visible blocks must be smooth stone. If I dig or mine then the tunnel structure must be rebuilt to this layout using smooth stone. This means I have to carry several stacks of the stuff on each mining trip. I cannot leave holes in my tunnels or leave a dirt block visible it has to be replaced I have to go back and fix it.


    You'd be the perfect person to clean my house I think.

    Me personally, I cave mine for iron and coal, and branch mine for diamonds, gold, lapis, and redstone.

    Last night I was killed by a baby zombie wielding my own diamond sword which I had dropped after being killed by a zombie horde just a couple of minutes earlier. Oh the irony

    I play SMP with my kids from time to time. They grief the hell out of me. It's always on a world I have been working on for a bit, then i let them join in. It's pretty funny though, I occasionally lava trap them or something like that.

    Minecart rollercoaster! Base on top, then you could put your tracks under, through and around the outside. I think that would be pretty fun.

    I think I'm going to go for a Japanese-style castle. Anyone remember the multiplayer map on Call of Duty WAW? Something like that I think. When I make some progress I'll post.

    posted a message on What have you Done In Survival lately?
    I started a new world, got my house built and got some pretty good initial resources. Found a zombie dungeon and turned it into an XP grinder. Got some farms and stables built so I am good there. Then I found a nearby swamp so I thought I would hang out and collect some slime balls. Anyway, I started sniping zombies from a tree, it was at night and I was bored, and I triggered a zombie swarm. I figured I would be safe in the top of my tree until morning when the zombies would die from the sun so I got up to get a drink. Somehow a spider manged to climb my tree and knock me of prompting the zombies to quickly kill me. Since I had some good armor and weapons I figured I would go back after respawning in the morning and collect my stuff. Instead the zombies were still alive, in the middle of the day wearing my armor and carrying my weapons. Needless to say they killed me pretty quickly again so I quit.

    I may go back to this world later tonight, but I am still angry at the moment.
