    Wow, looks awesome!

    How did you get the trees to all be the same height? Did you build them block by block with spawned materials?

    Server recruiting forum is ----> that way

    Quick advice: if you want players to join, let them know what is different about your server than others. Give some basic details too, like what mods you have, whether you have a whitelist, and whether what is allowed on the server.

    Not a glitch, I don't think. It also works with signs, pressure plates, buttons, levers, torches, redstone, etc.

    They same way as this?


    There's a lot of little glitches since the server-side inventory went in. For example:
      [*:2iryx07i]When I eat food, it still appears in my action bar until I try to use it again, open my inventory, or open a crafting station.

      [*:2iryx07i]When I die and come back to loot my corpse, many of the items don't disappear when I pick them up, until I leave the area and come back again. They can't be picked up more than once though.

      [*:2iryx07i]When I use a torch to clear out a column of gravel, I can't pick up a lot of the gravel/flint that drops.

    It seems that the one you found is another version of the gravel/torch glitch. In case you don't know how to do it, just set up the following scenario and then clear the stone block:

    :gravel:
    :gravel:
    :gravel:

    Funny, I just had this happen to me for the first time tonight also. But, it only took 2.5 hearts from me and pushed me back. Were you low health?

    I have a row of solid ground for torches between every two rows for trees, so I'll probably just stay off the saplings from now on.

    I wonder if there are any special drops for killing monsters with sprouting trees.

    Kind of. Even though you say you didn't dig up the cobblestone, I have trouble believing it. xD.


    I've seen a number of dungeons on or near the surface. Once I even found one sticking out of the edge of a mountain.

    All dungeons have cobblestone around them naturally. I'm not sure what is hard to believe.

    To the original poster, if you can get MineSeeder to work, can you use it to get the seed and post it here? If it doesn't work for you (a lot of people have trouble), you can just upload your level.dat file from the save directory.

    How is Ubuntu trolling? Does that mean to us Linux users, Windows is trolling? And Unix (mac os x and others) is trolling to sun computers? Am I confusing you yet?


    Kids today don't know how to use the "trolling" term. They don't know that it is synonymous with baiting. The only trolls that they know of are the ones in fantasy worlds, so the allusion to fishing makes no sense to them.

    He just wanted to insult you because of your operating system, and didn't know how to do it properly. Snotty kids...

    I grew a very tall tree with branches in a large cavern one time. It was a sapling one minute, and a monstrous tree the next. The cavern it grew in was huge (probably 20x20x50), and it filled nearly the full thing. Even though the tree was mostly vertical, it still had gobs of branches all the way through it.


    Do want a screen if you still have the save. Sounds badass.


    I'm not at home now, but I'll check to see if I still have it when I get home.

    EDIT: It looks like that save is corrupted. Every time I start minecraft with it, I get a fatal crash.

    I ran mcmap on it, and I can see 16x16 holes all over. Must be chunk errors :sad.gif:

    I had a couple levels lost this way, and posted in the Support forums about it, but never got an answer.

    Is there a way of growing a big branched tree, or just luck? I want one for my garden. I have a couple of them naturally generated next to it, so i think that the biome can help.

    wait, and dont place anything on near, or remove anything from that tree, doing anything except waiting will stop the
    tree's growth. (waiting only works for your trees, natural trees spawn the way they are)


    I could be wrong, but I thought all trunk pieces and branches grew immediately. The leaves grow over about 5-10 seconds after the trunk.

    As I'm repairing the ceiling, another creeper falls through the hole caused by the first creeper, directly into my house. It is still there and I am very frightened.


    Shoot down with arrows. Or just leave the area (walk 80+ meters away) so that he despawns.

    posted a message on WoW in Minecraft?
    As someone else said, the project to build ironforge is already underway:

    http://forum.discovr.us/showthread.php?tid=240


    Posting an idea here like this is always going to bring negative replies, because if you had the willpower to put together such a project, you would already have your own website and forums going, and would have purchased server space for the project (like the guy doing the ironforge project does).

    Of course, WoW is a very polarizing topic. Most of the people posting "NO" here are not looking for a project to participate in, so you shouldn't care what they say. They just post because this thread is an opportunity for them to hate on WoW.

    Notice how not one of them gave any counter-suggestions (such as Kelethin from Everquest, Old Tarantia from Age of Conan, the Inevitable City from WAR, or even Bestine from SWG).

    Personally, I use this pattern on the floor, and put a few torches in the ceiling on the aisles to prevent monster spawns.

    Even if you only need one tree, I'd do something like this, to increase your chances of the tree growing before you give up. 32 saplings (like above) should give you a tree within about 20 minutes. When they choose to grow is random, but the more you have, the better your chances of it being soon :smile.gif:

    Your post doesn't really make much sense, but maybe copying the minecraftwiki page for Chunks will help:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Chunk

    Quote from minecraftwiki »
    A method used by Notch to divide infinite maps in the alpha release. They are 16 blocks wide, 16 blocks long, and 128 blocks deep. When wandering the world the nearest 81 chunks are loaded, arranged in a 9 by 9 grid around the player. These chunks may have activity (mobs spawning, trees growing, water flowing, dropped items disappearing etc. etc.), while the other world chunks are stored on your hard drive. If a player was to go to an area that is beyond the already generated chunks, new chunks will be generated and stored to the drive.


    So, if you are standing someplace, all the ground from where you stand to the bottom is already generated. The whole chunk you are in is generated (16x16x128). The other 80 chunks closest to the one you are in are generated. Places far away may not have been generated yet, but you would have to walk there and then dig down to find diamonds that may generate there.

    Quote from Shadow_Knux »

    Unless you know programming, I don't think you're qualified to say anything is simple to implement. Food items seem like one of the harder things to code, plus he needs to make a recipe for the cake and all that.


    Why, yes I do "know programming"... and that's not unusual. A good number of minecraft players are programmers (I've heard some people say it's the type of game that only a programmer could love).

    If Notch has it set up correctly, making a new recipe for a food item shouldn't even require any programming at all. It may just be modifying a data file, or at the most, just modifying constants.

    I'm pretty sure the hardest part is not the implementation, but the design. What should it look like? Should it be placeable in world or just visible in the inventory? How many hitpoints should it heal? Should it have any other side effects? Those all sound like simple questions, but sometimes answering them in a way that doesn't affect your other future plans is the hardest part of development.
