    Well, if we ignore the fact that Diamond tools are stronger, faster, take 6 times less inventory space... yeah, diamonds aren't worth it.

    Maybe it should point to the portal that you used the last time.
    Or you could right click with the compass on a portal and the compass will lead you to that one.

    I came up with this.
    Although, not 100% useless since you can use it as a clock. lol

    As soon as the piston gets a signal trough the sand block, it trows it up, loses the signal and closes back.
    The block falls down, gives again a signal to the piston which trows the sand block up again.

    EDIT: WTF?
    Y U SIMG TAG NOT WORK?!?!?!?! *angrytroll.bmp*

    posted a message on Notch is a bad developer
    IMO, he isn't a bad developer, he's just inexperienced to work in such a big project as Minecraft. He isn't taking Minecraft serious enough. He still thinks it's his hobby project.

    Also, some things which he said "are not possible" could also be interpreted as "have to much work for little to no profit from it".

    posted a message on What to put along a 15k+ block highway?
    Since it's made out of half steps, there is nothing you can place on the road.
    Around it, well try to keep it natural. Maybe also some ruins, a small village and a pound.

    Also, I think you're using a texturepack bigger then 16x16 without using the patcher first. That's why Netherrack looks like water blocks.

    You're a bit late.
    This is nothing new.
    I have connected 4 of them.
    This is a screenshot from my test world.
    In my real world I'm planning to make a 6x6 (36 total, currently I have the same as in my test world, but just better looking and more compact) and connect them to allocators which will move them into chests.

    Although I don't have a need for so much cobblestone, it looks epic. ^^

    posted a message on The Purpose of Cobblestone Generators?
    Quote from Hamstergutz

    I only recently started playing and never heard of a cobblestone generator until now. How do they work?

    Side view:
    :Glass: :Lava: :Glass: :Water: :Glass:
    :Glass: :: :cobblestone: :: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass:

    Now you just mine the cobblestone. Once you destroy it, the lava and water meat at the same place again and create a cobblestone. Since Water and lava source can't destroy each other, they will create unlimited cobblestone.

    I like to build stuff, even if it's useless. I have this:

    4 cobblestone generators.
    It generates over a double chest per hour and thanks to the allocator I don't have to be there. But you can also make it without it. And from version 1.7 completely mode-free.

    EDIT: The pictures are just a preview from my test world. In my real world I can't take such pictures since it's completely sealed off. ^^

    This looks great.
    And you do good commentaries. I understood everything about it and I think I could recreate one without any bigger difficulties.

    Great job. This should be at the Digital Diamond section.
    Here, take this. *gives :Diamond:*

    Anyone got a nice seed for this challenge? I can't get a map with a big ocean.
    Everything I get is either to small, or not deep enough.

    posted a message on Pistons Recipe
    Slimeball is a big NO-NO.
    Just to be clear, I started playing this world 2 months before beta and I still have to find 1 Slime. The world is over 70 MB, I explored a HUGE part of the world, trough the Nether and normally, explored every cave I found, the only 2 things I have not seen are Spider Jockeys and Slims. To rare to be used on something that important. (yeah, pistons are more important then Pigs if you ask me)

    posted a message on Minecraft Coming To Xbox Kinect This Winter
    Since it's not just a "copy source here" this will slow down the development of the game a lot. Notch, I'm really disappointed. This was a really bad move.And if you want the game to be on consoles that much, you should add it to all consoles, not exclusive to the xbox.

    posted a message on Notch done goofed.
    I like mushrooms, but this.... this is to much.
    I think Notch should make Mushrooms should grow only in clusters of 9. If there are 9 mushrooms in a cluster, non of those mushrooms will spawn new one (not even diagonally).

    :soil: :soil: :soil: :wood: :soil: :soil: :soil:
    :soil: :Portabella: :soil: :wood: :soil: :Portabella: :soil:
    :soil: :soil: :soil: :soil: :soil: :soil: :soil:
    Mushroom farm. ^^

    Else, make them grow in smaller cluster, like 3-4 and mushrooms still can spawn new one. Just if they spawn directly next to the cluster they get destroyed, if they grow diagonally, they will stay. We could get some weird formations. ^^

    posted a message on Did anyone else notice that tallgrass is seriously off center?
    It was a nice try to make it look more "wild" but it should be fixed now. It's damn ugly.
    I want to use it as decoration and for that I need it to be in the center.
