    posted a message on Why do I still play in 1.6.4?

    I don't have any one version I stick to, but I've never spent much time in anything later than 1.9. I find most newer additions to be cheesy, and I prefer pre 1.7 terrain. I like 1.6 too, but I have mixed feeling about some features such as regional difficulty. I don't cave anywhere near as much as you, but I agree that the older caves are much more interesting. The terrain is probably one of my biggest reasons for playing old versions. I don't play the game a whole lot though anyways.

    posted a message on Is Minecraft Dying...?

    Even if it isn't dying financially, it is definitely decreasing community-wise. For one, there seem to be far less community servers, just mega-hubs filled with immature/rude players, and mini games that they copy from each other. Mojang is father away from the community now that they sold themselves to Microsoft, and the development of the game is much less eventful now.


    There are still fun communities to be found, but the game's prime already happened.

    Oh? I thought they had changed it entirely, as I'm seeing more saturated hues especially when the tool is beginning to wear down to about %60-45, and I believe I'm seeing it go down in more increments/more smoothly per say unless it's just me and my head. Personally I find the color change hideous.

    I agree, the color change is awful. The almost-neon yellow is just UGH. I don't see what was wrong with making the bar darker. It showed the durability just fine and was not a distracting eyesore like the new one is. Mojang should just quit changing textures. They always seem to make the newer one worse.

    Is it possible to get the old durability bar back? I find the bright yellow on black very ugly.

    • 'Totem of Undying' is consumed if you take fatal damage while holding it in either hand. It saves you from death and gives you absorb and regen. Drops from a mob in the mansion place mentioned above.
    • Llamas (the Twitter poll was legit) are tamable. You can deck them out with carpets and ride them. Not sure if you can control. Wolves are scared at them, they will attack wolves by spitting at them. They will try to form a caravan if one is put on a lead.

    I missed everything mentioned before this. Got a glimpse of some stuff on the new haunted mansion structure, but not enough to report. I saw a summoner mob which summons lots of smaller flying mobs. It's an endgame challenge, a bit easier than the bosses.




    Are the totems going to be a REALLY rare drop? I'm just waiting for someone to make a farm for those...really not sure I like that feature, it could make otherwise exciting explorations easy.

    There are also llamas that can carry stuff, dress up on carpets, and spit on wolves.


    There are also totems of undying...this game is getting easier by the update. They better be REALLY rare.

    posted a message on What's your preferred way to go mining? Caves or Shafts?

    I usually do shaft and strip mines. First I dig a large vertical shaft down to level 5 or so. I almost always expose caves in the process to explore later, and I find enough ore in the shaft to. Once I reach level 5 I dig either 2x2 or 1x2 tunnels which gets me a lot more ore.


    I have always liked to do mining that way because I find the most diamonds and other valuables, and I get plenty of cobblestone to build with. My tunnels run into caves sometimes, and I will usually explore those within a short while, as well as any I find in my vertical shaft.


    But yeah, I've always had a lot of fun mining tunnels and shafts, and exploring caves once in a while.

    posted a message on Update 0.15 is really interested about me...

    This new update contains some cool features, but there is something odd about it. I'm not sure why, but Minecraft pe wants to know my information with the new update.


    I run android, and when I went to download 0.15 I saw that it wanted permissions to know my identity, my contacts, and my device I'd & call information. Why does it want to know this? I haven't installed the update, but I bet it's Microsoft trying to get the permission for some reason.


    Has anyone else saw this too?

    posted a message on Why most are hating 1.9?

    Are there still that many people who still hate 1.9+ combat? I have been playing it for a while and I have to say, it is quite fun. No longer do I feel like I half-"beat" the game after I get iron gear. I really do not get what people see in spam clicking. It's boring, mindless, and way too easy, especially in the later pre-1.9 versions where mobs are even easier. If the pvp "pros" that cannot fight without spam-clicking want to stay on 1.7 forever, they can.

    Personally I don't like it, but a toggle is fine. I just think it should start off instead of on.

    Quote from KirinFrost»

    Well i built an iron farm which is probably not at the original spawn point though idk.

    1 golem per 6 mins which is horrendous xD

    Still i guess i have to find a cave then



    Have you tried mining tunnels near bedrock? Go down to layer 5-11 and just dig a 1x2 or 2x2 tunnel. You will find more iron and other resources too.

    Caves are also good. Look around on the surface for one, or you may run into one while mining.


    Don't waste too much time on an iron farm. You can get a lot from caving or mining which is more fun.

    posted a message on Simply not enough iron >.<

    Honestly I've just never had the desire to make an iron farm. I've anyways found it more fun to do the mining or caving. Something just doesn't feel right about having a big machine that sits and spews out iron for me.


    If you're fairly new to Minecraft which I'm going to take a wild guess that you are, I highly recommend trying out mining techniques or caving. One you figure out your favorite way to cave or mine tunnels near bedrock, you'll have a lot more fun doing that then having a big structure that just generates it.


    Not to mention, you can also find caves, dungeons, etc from mining. Like someone mentioned, try enchanting, and digging tunnels spaced apart at levels 5-11ish. Or, you could walk on the surface and look for caves, and you never know, you might find a big one.


    Just my thoughts on the matter.
