    posted a message on Do I really need a bow?
    Honestly, it depends on your comfort level in the game. If you have a distinct lack of skill with the bow, its because you have never used it. Everything in minecraft has a learning curve of some form, and using a bow is worth it, as it is ALWAYS a safe option for attack, assuming there is some distance between you and your opponent. I typically carry a bow and a stack of arrows, since I like having options.



    Say I am in a cave, and there is a skeleton above me shooting at me. I could run away, or I could shoot it down with the bow. Its just an extra option to have.



    I personally, can kill any mob so long as I have an iron sword. Try this in creative, run towards a creeper with an iron sword jump, and get the crit on it (Optional, I usually do it just for the style points) and keep moving forward and hit it two more times, as fast as you can. You should kill it with BARELY enough time before it explodes. (Just a fun tip)

    My best recommendation for starters would be to study real world architecture. You would be surprised at the stuff you can find.

    posted a message on What is the best game-changing modpack in your opinion? The poll.
    Tekkit Main, and Tekkit Lite are very well rounded Modpacks, adding a large amount of flexibility, and control of what you do. It allows for a complete rewrite of everything you know Minecraft. Automation? Not a problem! There are endless ways to accomplish this! Bored? Brew up some booze, customizable crops, mass storage, automated mining, armor allowing for flight, speed, invisibility, you name it! These modpacks I play quite often, and I have yet to grow bored of them!

    Age:

    Position(s) Desired:

    Head Admin, Builder

    Experience:

    I have been admin on over 10 servers, for over 3 months each. All of them which I have moderated or been an admin on eventually became inactive/ were taken down. I have been Head Admin on 3 servers before, and have been playing servers since I started Minecraft.

    Skills:

    Builder, experienced admin, experience with mods, plugins, configs, and dealing with people with blatant disregard for the rules.

    Timezone:

    GMT-0700 (Pacific Standard Time)

    Time Available to Play/ Help:

    It is summer, and I have a lot of free time, so up to 10 hours a day, but that is unlikely, so around 3-5 average.

    Extra Info:

    I know Minecraft in and out, and servers just as well. I wish to be able to assist with building, whilst also being an admin to be able to regulate the server and allow for people to have a safer, more enjoyable experience on the server. A month or two has passed since the last server I was a part of went down, so now I will move on and wish to help another server.

    Please PM me if you have any questions!
    I do not wish to wait so long for a reply, it shows disorganization. I withdraw my application.

    That is really cool. Great job man! Maybe find a cool texturepack and see how awesome you can make it look. But never build in a texturepack.... everything looks good in one. Even dirt.

    Yogscast Lalna, or Yogscast Duncan's Tekkit Classic castle is a good example.
