    posted a message on No portal in my Stronghold

    I have had a bug in the java version where the end portal room was closed off from the rest of the stronghold, separated by walls of stone. However, when I loaded the same seed in another file, it was not closed off. There was a path leading to it. Has this ever happened, where you load the same seed on two different files and there's a difference in the generation of terrain?

    posted a message on Will Phantoms slow down Ender hunts?

    A key stage in survival mode is hunting for Endermen. This happens at night. But if the player does it too often, Phantoms will spawn.

    I recently had that happen. However, it was near my portal, so I wonder if an enderman found its way into my portal.

    posted a message on Help me! Minecraft "Historical Versions" glitch

    So you're saying that eventually, older versions will just stop working altogether? We won't be able to visit them? I made some maps in 1.7 and I'm too lazy to remake them in 1.12.

    I would say 1.7, that's the last version I have fond memories of, although I'm warming up to 1.12 (but it doesn't feel the same)

    Wow, all I can say is that Minecraft has changed a lot. I wonder how Notch would feel about this. It was meant to be somewhat simple, and look how complex it is now!

    The last time I took this game seriously was in version 1.7, maybe 1.8


    I need to catch up.

    Well, in a poll, 81% of people were in favor of nuking the Middle East. And one of the flaws of democracy is that the majority rule, even if the majority is not right. So the day might come that America nukes the Middle East into oblivion and starts a nuclear war that makes humans extinct.

    I doubt they will do monthly payments. Minecraft has made a lot of money just from one-time payments. Maybe they will boost the one-time payment to 40 dollars (the standard cost of a video game, at least that's how much most Mario games cost at gamestop).

    Well, Microsoft has owned Minecraft for a while, and I don't see any issues. I think most of us overreacted. You need to realize that Minecraft's development team is now working for Microsoft, and is still in charge of the game. So Jeb won't do anything that will ruin the game. The only thing I don't like in the new update is all the new rocks that have been added. Microsoft's involvement is limited to earning profits.

    posted a message on The Ender Dragon is the good guy
    First, let's talk about the Endermen. They don't attack unless you attack first (so they use self-defense as a justification). Also, they attack if you stare in their eyes. We know very little about their culture. Perhaps where they come from, staring someone in the eyes for some times means you are challenging the person to a duel. They think you will attack them, so they attack you. And what happens if you "die"? You are teleported back to spawn, but without your stuff. So what they really did was disarm you and send you home. Now let's talk about the dragon. To get to the End, you need eyes of ender. How do you get those? By killing Endermen. So you kill the Ender Dragon's subjects, and then you just waltz into the Ender Dragon's home. And unless you don't plan to fight the dragon, you would be going there armed, so the Dragon sees you as a threat. Once again, all the Dragon does is send you back home without your stuff. But what do you do? Kill the dragon, and it doesn't come back. So who's the bad guy here? Of course, that won't stop me from killing the dragon, being the bad guy can be fun in video games. Long ago I made an alignment chart where the player is Neutral Good and the dragon is Neutral Evil, but now I think they are both True Neutral. The player can do things that are both good or bad (sometimes going as far as killing pigmen who don't want to cause trouble). And the dragon is just territorial, plus it stays in the end and doesn't cause trouble in the overworld.

    posted a message on Do Minecraft Worlds End?
    Just so everyone knows, they DO end. -30000000 to 30000000 is the range of x and z coordinates possible. There is an invisible wall that cannot be broken, cannot be teleported through, and cannot be enderpearled through. The player cannot interact with anything on the other side of the wall, although it might be possible for mobs on the other side to attack the player (I haven't tested that out yet, I forgot if mobs can even spawn on the other side of the wall). I suppose the only way past that wall is using mods.

    True, but I'd much rather Apple own Minecraft instead of Microsoft. Even before all of this, I've had problem after problem using Microsoft. Apple has so far never failed me. ^_^

    But Apple doesn't do video games. On the other hand, Nintendo could have bought Minecraft, and that would have been awesome.

    One of the few things I am worried about is Microsoft turning Minecraft into a first person shooter by adding guns into one of the future updates. Or adding a monthly fee being. Or a charge for every new update.

    This is Microsoft, not EA.

    If I was an admin, I wouldn't mind. It's not like it's going to help them become op. I don't know if any mobs can spawn on top (of course, the last time I was able to do that was in 1.4.7)
