    Bringing gravel with me now :D as I encounter many lava pools, and gravel works wonders around them :)


    Yeah, and for when you hit a drop like in a ravine. Stack of gravel makes a very easy way down.

    My usual preference is

    1. Normal Pick
    2. Sword
    3. Bow
    4. Shovel
    5. Situational item (different pick, ladders, etc.)
    6. Non-gravity block (dirt, cobble)
    7. Gravity block (gravel usually)
    8. Food
    9. Torches

    When you try to figure out how tall creepers are in real life by comparing them to in-game doors to see if you can take 'em.


    Creepers become much scarier when you realize they're taller than you. Steve = about 1.6 meters-ish? Creeper is 2 meters tall. That's more than 6 foot 5 inches tall.

    posted a message on What Did You Do On Your First Minecraft Night!?
    I first started playing in beta, so no sleeping for me. I got enough supplies to start mining. However, when I came out in the morning, I opened the door, saw 4 creepers, and went back inside.

    I've actually gotten scared as I was getting out of a car at night. I heard something behind me and my first thoughts were "Creeper! Run and jump!"

    posted a message on Leather armor... Next to useless?
    Quote from phaticus

    Fall damage doesn't damage your armor.


    Ah, you are right. Well, that's what I used it for before that got changed anyway. :P

    Quote from Delthyn

    Or you can just dig down for about 10-15 minutes and get a full suit of iron armor, iron tools, and buckets. Gee, what am I going to do?

    Time yourself between leather and iron.

    Leather: 15-30 minutes to get a decent wheat field going. 5 minutes to catch and begin to breed 2 cows. Wait 5 minutes between breeding sessions. Finally get enough cows to slaughter them all and get full leather armor.

    Iron: 10-20 minutes of digging. Tops. Unless you're massively unlucky. Plus 2-3 minutes of smelting.


    Exactly what I mean. In my most recent world, I could see iron from my spawn. All of 4 blocks from me.

    Quote from colorfusion

    In real life I don't think you'd die first hit with full leather armour on. It's pretty tough,

    He's right. In real life, leather armor is specially treated to harden it. It's boiled and can be studded with metal. Surprisingly tough.

    • If you're a builder then you tend to fall down a lot. It's just the nature of the job. You don't want to spend your iron armor's durability on something non pvp or pve related since that armor can be put to better use elsewhere. Leather armor is a good way to have some relatively cheap and easy to acquire protection as your building. My life was saved tons of times from wearing protective leather armor while building.
    I don't really think that there is any item or block in minecraft that is totally useless. even something as common as sand and dirt has some practical uses on the field. I guess it just depends on how you play the game.


    1. That's mostly what I use it for. I hate to use up that fresh suit of iron armor on fall damage. I use that suit of leather to make sure I don't die. XP

    2. Oh yeah, everything is useful for something. I wasn't saying it was completely useless, just... what's a good word... Obsolete? Inferior? Something like that. Completely useless? No. And I almost always bring gravel or sand with me in caves.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned yet but the skeletons still have the default Minecraft look. Is this intentional or did my download just not get everything?

    I would play on a high FOV, but the thing that bothers me is the blocks in front of you aren't square anymore... :(

    That makes one of us then. I can never find any cows. I'm lucky to get two for breeding. >_<

    On that note, I've never found a mushroom biome either.

    posted a message on Potency or Duration
    Assuming you stop running when the potion wears off? I'm going with duration. One level of potency won't offset the extra time. The potency will make you even faster, but compared to the time increase... You'll get farther with duration I'm pretty sure.

    I'm no mathematician though. :P

    Quote from Metalwario

    There was a suggestion to change cow drops so that they would drop more leather than they would beef, but I don't think this would help a whole lot. It might help some, but iron armor will still be easiest to come across.

    Yeah, you're right, it wouldn't be enough. The problem isn't the drops, it's the amount of cows around. Simply not enough.

    Computer speed doesn't effect loading images. It's your net that does that.

    Thank you... >_<

    OT: Probably what this guy said:

    Quote from FusionCrow

    Most likely a bug where the model still exists while the AI disappears. I've seen it with zombies before.

    Can you hit it? If you don't want to hit it, can you walk through it maybe? If you leave the game and come back is it still there?
