    Just had a look for MCP and it seems that MCP in only up to date on version 1.6.4, and I'm using 1.7.5 =( Plus they said that due to the 1.7 update changing so much, there is no ETA on any updates for MCP.

    Shame, hopefully it will be updated soon and I'll give what you said a try.

    Thanks again

    You're in luck, that's actually a feature that I wanted to add to a mod that I'm working on, I even had it configured to the same 30 minute cycle you wanted. (Great minds think alike, I guess? :P )

    This only requires minor changes to 2 java files, I did this in 1.6.2.
    The code that I added is bolded, and highlighted in red.

    WorldServer.java:
    this.worldInfo.incrementTotalWorldTime(this.worldInfo.getWorldTotalTime() + 1L);

    if (this.worldInfo.getWorldTotalTime() % 3L == 0 && this.getGameRules().getGameRuleBooleanValue("doDaylightCycle"))
    {
    this.worldInfo.setWorldTime(this.worldInfo.getWorldTime() + 1L);
    }

    WorldClient.java:
    this.func_82738_a(this.getTotalWorldTime() + 1L);

    if (this.getTotalWorldTime() % 3L == 0 && this.getGameRules().getGameRuleBooleanValue("doDaylightCycle"))
    {
    this.setWorldTime(this.getWorldTime() + 1L);
    }

    Hope this helps you! :)


    Thanks for your help, and yeah great minds evidently do think alike =)

    Sorry, bit of a noob here. Where would I find those Java files I have to edit???

    I believe you can turn it off with Command blocks
    Try setting a gamerule
    /gamerule doDaylightCyclefalse,


    Appreciate your reply, but I did say I knew about that command already and it wasn't what I was looking to do.

    Thanks though

    Hey everyone,

    Just wondering if there is now a way to slow the Day Night Cycle for Single player survival mode through either Mods, Commands or Plugins or anything at all? I thought there maybe a .Jar or Config file I could edit?

    I searched for past threads and found quite a few where people were requesting the same thing, but most threads were from 2011/12 and any replies suggested Mods, and those mods are now out of date.

    Any help would be great, I'm just looking to change it to a 30/40min Full Cycle. I know about the "dodaylightcycle" to stop it completely, but I just want to change the length of the cycle.

    Thanks to all

    I don't think it's to do with the lighting, necessarily. It's not lighting itself that causes FPS drops, but lighting updates. The fire and lava are where they are, and they light up the things that they light up -- that doesn't change a whole lot just from sitting there. A redstone contraption with tons and tons of torches and repeaters, on the other hand, might cause several lighting updates, several times a second, and that can really bog you down while your computer tries to keep up with rendering it all.

    Speaking of rendering, the nether lag may be due to all the animated fire all over the place. Not because it's illuminating, but because of its moving texture. Still, it's a lot better in recent versions than it has been in the past. I remember in 1.2.5, the nether was nigh-unplayable for me. These days, I hardly notice it at all. No more than any other time, anyway. I don't have a high-end gaming rig or anything, so I don't get stellar performance, ever, and I do still get the occasional lag spike. OptiFine helps.



    Thank you for that link, OpiFine has really helped. It took a fair bit of tweaking to get it just right as certain settings seemed to give me horrible flickering or not loading textures for some reason, but after I'd fine tuned it, I now get very little lag spikes in The Nether but at the same time surprisingly, I was able to actually increase the render distance above the default max of 16 as well! So the game as a whole looks better and I get a high and more importantly "stable" fps in The Nether =)

    Big Thumbs up IronMagus, really appreciate your help.

    AMAZING!! I went through and returned safely with a MUCH faster way of travelling to the village =D It wasn't straight forward as the portal to the village needed to be placed right on the precipice of a flipping enormous lava lake, so that was a little butt clenching at times. But I managed to get them all linked up and working perfectly. Now I only have to travel for about 5-6 mins in the Nether instead of what feeling like 4 hours in the overworld.
    Thank you guys =)

    If I may be really cheeky, I do have a question relating to the Nether I was hoping you might be able to help me with please.

    I was wondering what is with the crippling lag spikes when in the Nether?!? I running it on a really high-end rig but the Nether is dropping my fps to nearly single digits :blink:
    I've been reading about it might be caused by the lighting from all the fire, lava e.t.c. being checking all at once. I saw there were a LOT of people complaining about it with much older MC versions, but has it not been fixed yet? Or any mods that improve it at all??

    Thanks again

    Wow, I wasn't expecting that, sincerely thank you guys you've been extreme helpful. I'm pretty sure I got the vast majority of it and took it in correctly, so I'm going to give it a shot today and see where I end up.

    I might be back shouting "HELP ME! I screwed up" later though hehe.

    Thanks again everyone, really appreciate it.
    Wish me luck =)

    Thanks for that. Yeah I had read a bit about Minecart tracks but due to the distance I don't think it wouldn't a viable option. I can't imagine how long it would take :-\

    A horse is definitely something I thought of, but it's the luck of finding a saddle to ride it, or of course finding a villager to trade for one lol.

    Hi everyone,

    I have a question about travelling huge distances in MC. I'm playing (vanilla 1.7.5) survival mode and I wanted to find a village or two. I searched and searched until finally after literally weeks of searching, I found one. BUT, it is forever and a day away from my home and little town I've built =(
    Well I've been doing a bit of reading and from what I've read (please correct if I'm wrong) other than creative mode flying or mods, the only way of travelling such a distance without it taking hours every time I make the trip, is Nether Portals.

    So, could someone give me a bit of advice with these things, do's and don'ts, and whether I can craft a portal at my house and one at the village miles away and travel straight to and from each place???

    Sorry, I'm pretty new to MC so I've still got a lot to learn. But I wanna learn, MC is So addictive =D

    Thanks kindly

    I think these sounds are really funny ("I am lava! Go away! I can hurt you" from lava and "I'm dead!" from pigs when killed are some of the funniest), but if you don't like them here are some ways to get rid of them.

    Either of these should revert the sounds (I think the first one is better):

    Thanks for the help. Although I must admit, the sounds have grown on me. I thought it would get old and irritating pretty quick, but it's actually quite funny, like the lava talking as you mentioned :lol:
