    They won't breed willingly if there is no farmer, right?

    posted a message on most annoying things about living in NPC villages
    1. Just level the terrain and cut off sections that might be dangerous for them. You can use fences for the purpose.
    2. I didn't get this.
    3. Build a spider-proof, lit wall around the village, and light up the village itself. Tim- and resource consuming, yes, but in the end you can just let the nights roll (unless you have a village big enough to get Zombie Sieges, but that's unlikely).
    4. Don't know what you mean either.
    5. Take your shovel out and start securing the terrain.

    I found a pretty nice desert village, 5 blocks from a savanna. I decided I just had to have it for myself.
    I built a 4-blocks tall cobblestone wall around it and went mad with torches. Then I proceeded to light the inside of the village and of every house.
    I didn't mind the Sandstone houses but the sand theme bothered me, so I gathered all my dirt and replaced the floor with it, letting the grass in from the savanna. Through this, I could clear cliffs and pits that were left around the place.
    Some villagers wanted wool and paper for emeralds, so I got a pretty big sheep farm, tons of sugar canes, and some cows too.
    Then I built my very house where they cannot go in, and a castle walled off from them by an iron door.
    The villagers cannot access the walls, my house, the castle, they cannot go out of the village, and do not fear zombies.

    I really want to breed villagers but I don't understand how. The wiki is pretty confusing on that regard.

    What is the fastest way to have them breed?

    posted a message on How do you actually have fun in Singleplayer?

    If you approach single player with a multiplayer mentality, of course you will have no fun.

    The charm of single player is to survive a wild world on your own. Your fortifications can and will keep away hostile mobs, and you can create safe havens for you, your companion, your livestock.

    You are alone in exploring an infinite world, in finding nether fortresses and strongholds, and beating the Ender Dragon. You can work hard to shape your surroundings to your liking, or even take into account some roleplaying by securing a village and pretending you are the mayor.

    You can do just about anything, and save your progress on an external memory too, so if your buildings will never be seen by others (don't see the problem in this to be honest), you can always load them up and admire them.

    posted a message on Mobs spawning in ocean fort.
    Quote from Hexalobular»


    I believe that zombie sieges require 20 villagers and 10 doors.
    And siege zombies can spawn in transparent or nonsolid blocks such as half-slabs as long as there is a solid block underneath.
    (If you had half-slabs with a 2 block airspace underneath then the zombies would spawn in the cellar instead.)


    Oooh, my bad about the villagers-doors. Good to know since I can now safely increase my door counter and try to get some farmer villagers.
    My explaination was a little wonky indeed but I hope OP got the answer he needed anyway.

    posted a message on Mobs spawning in ocean fort.

    By monsters, do you mean the "usual" ones? Then yes, they will spawn if there's enough darkness and available blocks.


    If you mean zombie sieges (happening if you have 10 or more villagers), those will happen too, but not if:

    -The floor of the dome is Bedrock

    -The floor of the dome is made of transparent or half blocks.

    posted a message on Playin on Peaceful

    When I first started playing I thought about doing it on creative, but I quickly realise that an empty world provided no challenge, danger, and was also a bit creepy.

    So I'm playing on medium and fortifying all my outposts. I don't like to fight, but I like to think that I'm safe while out there it's darkness and monsters. I also started an hardcore world. You just gotta give it a try.

    posted a message on Why can I never find a Jungle biome in Singleplayer 1.8+?

    I am surrounded by deserts and plains. Trying to escape it through a Nether rail track.

    I never found jungles on my main world too, but I spawned in one on an alternate world. I found it pretty annoying.

    posted a message on How many bases do you have in your survival world?
    Quote from VampArcher»

    1, sometimes zero. I don't like building in survival mode, I think it's really monotonous. In my biggest world, my base is a cave, inside is just a crafting bench, three chests, four furnaces and a small wheat farm, laziest house ever. I made it in like 2 minutes. I at least sheared some leaves and vines, also added a staircase inside make it look better, it's in a jungle biome. Much later in the world, I added a chicken farm.

    I like playing nomad style a lot too. Just never make a base or stop anywhere. Just keep walking around and killing all of the animals you find for food.


    Yeah that looks kinda messy, ahah. Why don't you like building? I'm not a fan of it either since it's a bit monotonous, but I like the end result too much to pass on it.

    Also last week I found a village to the other end of my nether railway, more than 1000 blocks away from my home. Thanks to the railway, it's a 3-minutes trip. I surrounded it with a Cobblestone wall, lighted up every corner, and I'm now in the process of transforming it as it pleases me.
    It's a desert village, but I didn't like the sand theme, so I let the grass in from a nearby Savanna and replaced all the sand with dirt blocks. Now the village has Sandstone houses (don't wanna touch them, I'm afraid I'd mess with the villager repopulation) and grass everywhere with some oak trees, while still being a desert biome. I find it pretty amusing.
    I also reshaped the cliffs so they are stairs now, for the villagers' safety. Lastly, I reserved myself a perch where to build the town centre.

    posted a message on So thankful for those extra portals I made in the Nether

    My first portal was facing a giant lava lake on one side, and on the other there was a 2-blocks Netherrack corridor leading to the mainland. Needless to say, today that same place is a pigmen-spawning proof fortress of Cobblestone.

    Always play safe when it comes to the nether.

    posted a message on How kill ender dragon

    Assuming you are playing on normal, the minimum requisites are:

    -a stack of Cobblestone (for when you spawn away from the main body of the End)

    -5 Ender Pearls (If he knocks you off the platform)

    -a Water Bucket (safe fall)

    -Iron Armor (at least Protection I on every piece)

    -Iron sword

    -Bow (with at least Power I) with 4 stacks of arrows (OR Infinity Bow)

    -20 Steaks


    Shoot at the crystals carefully until you have cleared a big enough area where the Dragon cannot recover health. You don't need to shoot down ALL crystals; I still have some up, and I killed it months ago. When there are no more crystals in sight, hit it with leftover arrows and melee attacks.

    posted a message on Dragon Egg... Lost?
    Quote from Hawkamania»


    I was hoping I would be able to avoid such an instance, but if that ends up being the only solution... So bet it I guess. Thanks for your help!

    If anyone knows of any other solution that's different than the one above, feel free to share it!

    To be fair, switching to creative in this case shouldn't be considered "cheating". You aren't awarding yourself an egg out of the blue, you are replacing the one that fell and got lost forever. The only alternative would be to start another world and being more careful with pistons.

    posted a message on How many bases do you have in your survival world?
    Quote from frederickrl»

    I agree a lot with what LordPebbleton said but in my case i would call bases things such as a mining base where u have a simple little chest with food and tools in it i have a big base surrounding my nether portal in the nether so i can be proctected whenever i go in and some brewing stands so i can make fire resistance potions and strength


    As I said,if every shelter one built was to be considered a base, everyone would have tons of bases. Of course my criteria is arbitrary, but I think it's pretty valid; in other words, if you think you could live in one of your shelters without ever having the need to go hunt for food or skipping nights because you aren't safe, that is a base in my view.
