    I was thinking...ghosts. They'll be invisible entities that affect your house. They only appear in areas that are under a roof, and within 50 blocks away from a bed. A player must also die within 25 blocks of their bed to "create" a ghost.

    They don't actually harm you, but can cause creepy things like...

    -Glancing over to see random jack 'o Lanterns, and they disappear on second glance.

    -chests randomly opening and closing

    -Dogs making excessive whining noises.

    -Lights flickering

    -any water indoors turns into lava, but doesn't harm you or burn anything. Look back, and it turns back to water.


    In other words, the ghost would be the game's form of a griefer, without the destructive repercussions that follow, like for the creeper. The ghost wont be able to harm you, and you will only see it for a few minutes at the strike of midnight. Ghosts only die to gold or diamond tools, and they drop bones or glow dust, maybe both. They don't respawn until a player dies near the bed again.

    I was thinking a ghost could look like a faded Steve, but im sure you can think of better.

    Any thought or opinions? Thanks for reading!

    i actually like this idea, although this game is for kids and well.............you know the rest lol


    Whats so mature about ghosts? Casper is a child's icon. The Count from Sesame Street teaches them numbers. I just want to see more paranormal involvement in the game, but without any grievous repercussions.

    No, I don't want Herobrine. I want ghosts. Does HB open your chests, turn on/off torches, make your dogs whine, and is guaranteed to pop out at midnight? It would be a fun little distraction from the bigger projects in the game. You'll be out mining, and come back inside to stash your loot. You may distinctively notice...

    THE FLOOR IS COVERED IN LAVA?! Before you could react, it reappears as water fountains. Or maybe your chest keeps swinging open and shut? These little gimmicks would put me on the edge of my seat, especially if im alone, its late at night, and my awareness is eluded by the safety of my four walls. Don't ever get HB and ghosts mixed up again. I'll have no choice than to go spider monkey on your face.

    I have a lot of work that I don't want to give up for NPC villagers. Is there a chance that I can still have both? Thanks for reading!

    posted a message on Cactussssssss
    It's a long shot, and I don't even know if it would work (passersby readers please clarify if right or wrong)...but do cactuses randomly spawn in desert biomes even when you don't start off with any? If this is the case, you may have a chance of finding a submerged dessert biome in the water. You can just raise the ground above water, top it with sand, and play the waiting game.

    Again, I have no idea if this would work. Just an idea, I wouldn't want to mislead you into making an island for nothing. lol

    That sucks! >.< Ugh... So that leads me to another question.. can cactus only grow if it's in sand? I mean, since I have no deserts, how would I go about doing that? Just place a few sand blocks and then put one cactus block on there and wait?


    Yes, it only grows on sand. If you were to add cacti on creative, you would have to plant a cactus block on the sand for it to grow.

    Here are some pointers I've learned from building...

    -Double-layer the floors and walls. This way, you can color-scheme the walls, floors, and ceilings without interfering with the other side. For instance, I put patterns in the floor. What may look appealing on the floor of that particular room may do for quite a ­ty ceiling for the room below.

    -Always build big, and adjust accordingly afterwords. Its easier to shrink a building than have to expand it from lack of space.

    -Prevent monotony wherever possible. Nothing looks uglier than a goose turd for a cobblestone building. On that same note, don't overdo it. A multicolored building can look like literal vomit from far away.

    -Lastly, DONT USE DIAMOND, IRON, OR LAPIS BLOCKS AS YOUR MAIN BLOCK FOR BUILDING. A little here and there is ok, maybe even impressive when used appropriately...but moderation is always key to everything.

    Whats great about it? Any schmuck can claim their map is a gift from nature, but what can separate you from them are some easy, simple screenshots.

    posted a message on What is a good Xbox 1.8.2 seed
    map seed "ilo"


    no caps, no quotations, just ilo. The map is an ocean with 3 tiny (but livable) islands in the middle, one or two northern islands that are no more than a few blocks wide...barely anything. To the northwest is a desert island thats relatively large, but not large enough to be lost in. The real kicker is that there are only two trees (or three, I don't remember) in the entire map. There are also a few ravines that come into contact with the ocean floor.

    You will also find quite a few large cave systems. Some are about 50 blocks in diameter, and deep enough to kill you three times over. Also, slimes spawn in the general area of the middle islands.

    So far, I haven't found a single mineshaft or stronghold, but Ive only searched in the northwest and middle of the map.

    posted a message on All about Creepers.
    I despise everything about creepers. I don't mind having an exploding enemy, so long as you can turn off the block damage they inflict. I like to keep my creations 100% intact, and nothing irks me more than having to shuffle through my salvaged inventory and the big hole in the house to spot out what the creeper vaporized....that of which is usually the prized jukebox or diamond sword instead of the 8 stacks of cobble or sand.

    posted a message on Strongholds are lame
    To OP,

    Strongholds aren't so much abundant with loot as they are massive and fun to explore. I happened to stumble upon one in my creative world. The structure is absolutely massive. There are at least 4 floors to it, and at least two separate mines running below, above and through it. Grand-total, the structure must take up at least 4 maybe 5 chunks (a chunk is a16x16 space of land) side by side. With the exception of a lava fountain as a reference point for navigation, torches, signs, and literally a few added blocks for convenient corridors...the stronghold is what you see.

    I spent about 8 hours completely restoring it and adding signs for easier navigation. Without the signs, you can easily be lost in a matter of seconds. Anyone reading this may feel free to join my game and explore the stronghold, if they are interested. Again, there are signs, so navigation should be a walk in the park.

    posted a message on Thank you, 4J and Mojang...
    I know that I'm just one voice out of millions, but I'm a great fan of your game and hope others share the same feelings, as well. I know I'm wasting this topic space against something more constructive or meaningful, but I cant hold back from saying that you have perfected the game-concept of my lifetime, in my opinion. I cant say that I have felt a greater urge to come home from work, undress my work clothes, and load up your game and proceed to play it habitually with my friends and family. Ever since I was a child, I had a fantasy where you could pop in a cartridge (I grew up on Sega and N64) and play with Legos on steroids in a digital universe that held virtually endless possibilities.

    I always had the urge to build to my mind's extent, which reached much farther than the Legos and Lincoln Logs my family could afford. While I would save up Legos/Lincoln Logs to build a massive creation, I would inevitably destroy my creation and scrap it to build another. The lack of material saddened me, because I poured my heart and soul into what I build and wished to save it forever. This game had filled that void I was lacking as a child. I suppose technology had come a very long way from the 90s, though. I wanted to remind all children (years 8-12) possibly reading this topic that you have a great game in your hands. Building a Lego skyscraper can cost hundreds of dollars through Santa or your parents. Building so on Minecraft would only cost 20 dollars.

    Again, I wanted to say, "Thank you". The 20 dollars was very much worth the cost and I have played more of this game than any other...except Sonic 1,2, and 3 for the Sega Genesis from my childhood...but Im working on that. I know I'm just one person of millions, but I will remain a fan through thick and thin, I can assure that.

    Again, thank you.

    Quote from slackathor

    Gravel is your best friend when encountering lava. Be sure to carry a couple of stacks and simply fill in any lava pools when you come across them.


    Gravel is just a strong acquaintance. Your best friend is really a bucket of water. When you encounter a cave full of lava, just aim the crosshairs on the center of the ceiling. Activate the water bucket on the ceiling, and the water will rush down turning every lava space into obsidian. As the lava solidifies, it lets the water above it extend out and reach more lava. Two bucket dumps can cover most cave lava pools. The best part is that you can constantly reuse the water!

    Pertaining to the topic, as far as lava pools go I use them as a sign of a cave system coming up. I Usually find a cave thats in the 14 Y-coord or lower, then look for resources. When im out of things to find, I start building a cave out in any direction. Once I find lava, I dig slightly above it, and start looking for conjoining caves. This is my best and favorite technique for mining. You never know what you will find.

    So you lost a dog after dying? How'd you die...falling off a cliff or being attacked by a monster? Your dog might've died with you, but the other got away. I also had a friend lose their dog, and the dog didn't even die. It just suddenly ceased to exist when he turned around. Either case, they spawn randomly and you'll find a big wolf pack one of these days...

    Also, play the game with a difficulty on, wait overnight, and when daylight approaches scout around and harvest the dropped feathers, bones, and arrows from burned monsters. Free bones!

    p.s I can back up halo3glitchaustin. It once took me over 15 bones to tame a wolf. I was pissed
