    posted a message on Crash help

    Have you looked at the bug tracker to see if the issue has already been reported? https://bugs.mojang.com That would be the best place to report this stuff as nobody from Mojang looks at these forums.

    posted a message on failed to launch vr oculus

    Are you playing the beta version (1.2.10.1)? I just tried it with the beta and the game will launch, but it freezes up when I try to load a world. I also noticed that the menu screen is not a 360 degree view like before. Now it looks like you are looking at an IMax screen.

    The "Seed" is a random numeric value that gets generated in the game during world creation. You can however enter your own seed into the world generation to produce your own results. If you use a seed that someone else used, your world will generate exactly the same way theirs did, as long as you are both on the same version of the game that is.


    Here's a link to the seeds discussion on the forums for your version of Minecraft: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/minecraft/seeds

    posted a message on I can't get rid of this glitch

    Yeah, you're right. Thanks for the clarification.


    That's an odd one. I wonder if logging out then logging back in will clear it up.

    What glitch? You've broken through the bedrock. Beneath that is the void as it should be.

    No, not that I know of.


    Your best bet is to tear it down and build a different type of farm in the Minecraft version that you are currently playing. You should find something that is a lot more efficient.

    posted a message on F3 button don't work in minecraft

    Are you playing the Java Edition or the Windows 10 version (Bedrock Engine)? F3 only works in the Java Edition.

    posted a message on Custom Recipes To Make The Game Harder?

    If you want really hard... Remove all recipes for anything that you can trade with villagers for. Or make is so that the only tools and weapons that you can craft are wood or stone and the only armor that you can craft is leather. All the rest you have to get either by trading with villagers or by mob drops.

    posted a message on Minecraft Alternatives? Are there any Android Minecraft clones with functional home server software?

    As long as you're not using cheats to give yourself tons of diamonds, or equipment, having cheats turned on for you doesn't really make a difference. You can still get to the end legitimately and defeat the dragon. Just don't switch your game mode to creative, that's really cheaty.


    Oh, and there are a ton of free worlds out there that you can download as well. Google for MCPE Maps or MCPE Worlds and you will probably find quite a few on the same sites where you will find the texture packs and other resources.

    Welcome to Minecraft!


    World generation is somewhat random. It sounds like when your world generated you got a map that is mostly islands and ocean. Try creating a new world (don't delete your current one, you may still want to play on it as a "Survival Island" world), and see what you get next time. You can also enter a seed in the world generation screens to guarantee a specific world type, just make sure that you use a seed for the correct version of Minecraft that you are running.


    There are two different versions of Minecraft that run on the Xbox One. You'd have to look at your main screen when you start the game. If the title just says "Minecraft" then you are playing the newer Bedrock engine, AKA the Better Together Update. You are probably on the newer version since you just got this console for Christmas.


    Instead of swimming between islands, craft yourself a boat. Ocean travel is much quicker that way.


    How do you use the gems? Diamonds can be crafted into much better armor and weapons. Emeralds can be traded with villagers for other items.


    Why are you alone in the world? I guess you haven't found a village yet. They generate randomly throughout the world. Don't expect much from the villagers though other than the constant annoying "Hrm" sound that they make. You can't talk with them, but you can trade with them. Villages are also a good place to grab supplies. There are usually a few gardens that you can grab wheat, potatoes, carrots, and beet root from. If there is a blacksmith in the village, there will be a chest in the building that you can grab all the items out of.


    You can also play multi-player if you want. You would have your friends or family join in your game and play in your world with you. If you have the newer version of the game you can also join servers and play mini-games there with thousands of other people.


    You can craft maps, and expand them out. You can also craft a compass. The compass will always point back to your original spawn point in the world. Also in the latest build of the newer version (1.2.9) you can turn on coordinates without it being a cheat. If you are on the older Xbox One edition, your coordinates will show up at the top of your map.


    I would suggest that you watch a few YouTube videos of Minecraft game play. Maybe try a channel like "Adults Only Minecraft." His content is all Java edition, but the game play is similar for the most part. I have a series on my channel called "Minecraft Windows 10 Edition: How to Survive and Thrive." The Windows 10 Edition is now part of the Better Together Update as well, so the game play is the pretty much the same as the new version on Xbox One.

    There is a YouTube video that has a solution for one player sleeping in the Bedrock version. Maybe see if you can find that video and try it out. It does require a couple of command blocks running in a loaded chunk, but if you build the device next to the guy in the hole, this should work.


    If you don't mind not getting achievements, you could also give the character you play "Operator" privileges in the world. Then if someone wants to sleep you could just run a command to set the time to day.


    /time set day

    posted a message on Second Bedrock account linked to one Microsoft account?

    Unfortunately, purchases from the Minecraft Marketplace are tied to a single account and can't be shared.


    How about using some free resources instead of the stuff in the store?


    Pretty much any skin for the Java edition will work in the Windows 10, Android, and iOS devices. Just google "Free Minecraft Skins" and you can look through thousands of skins. Just download the PNG file for the skin and in Minecraft, click the clothes hanger icon, click "Choose New Skin" and browse your device to the folder where you saved the skin PNG file to. Select the image, then select either the "Steve" or "Alex" body type (either will work) and apply. Voila! You have a custom skin that you didn't have to purchase from the store.


    Same thing goes for the texture pack. Google "Free MCPE 1.2.9 Texture Packs." You should get several links to websites that offer hundreds of free texture packs. Download one you like. The file extension I believe ends with .mcpack double click on the file and it will auto-install into Minecraft for you.


    Once you have the free stuff installed, you are not limited to having two of the same account logged in. Create a free Xbox Live Silver account and use that for the guy you've got buried to keep the world open. Just use the free texture pack you installed on all of your devices and you should be good to go.

    This is a known issue and is supposedly fixed in the 1.2.10 Beta build that was just released for Windows 10 and Android. Hopefully the full release will happen soon.

    posted a message on Copy and Paste

    Care to elaborate why exactly this is? Doesn't make sense, it's just a building aid and not something that could give you an unfair advantage over any other players.

    There is a print function in Schematica that will allow you to place the schematic and if you have the blocks in your inventory just run around the schematic and automatically build in a matter of seconds. You can also copy other peoples builds into schematics for yourself. That one really bothers a lot of people as they see it as stealing their hard work.

    It's a great mod, but some people consider it too OP to use on a public server (unless you own the server). That's why I suggest that you talk to the server owner first before you try using the mod there. I was a member of a Patreon server at one point and in the rules they said that use of Schematica on the server was a bannable offense.
