    posted a message on My trees wont grow

    If bonemeal works, maybe its just the height limitation. The wiki says:



    Both birch and spruce trees require 9 blocks of vertical space above the sapling to grow regularly (10 is more efficient for growth). Both spruce and birch grow with less space, but not as regularly. Like other saplings, they must receive light level 8 or better to grow.


    So maybe a tree will grow at six blocks, but its just very slow.

    posted a message on 2 players using same savegame?

    Without a Server setup or a Realm, you have limited and cumbersome options ...


    Assuming you play on diff computers, but on the same local area network ... you could copy the world onto a memory stick say, then copy it to the relevant PC, whomever plays plays, then copies the world back to the memory stick and then back to the other PC and then the other person plays etc etc


    If you have a shared area on your network which is always on (such as a NAS drive or a USB storage option on your Router), you could have the world saved there, and then either of you could access it, but not at the same time. However i think one of you could open it and open it to LAN and the other person could join it, so you could play together.

    posted a message on what to do with armor drops?

    I've always tended to wear diamond armour, occasionally iron armour, so iron armour drops, being quite rare, sometimes go to making spare armour. On the other hand I smelt 99% of my gold armour drops (regardless of enchantments) for the nuggets, for crafting into ingots. Think over all my bases i have two sets of Enchanted Gold Armour on stands for decoration.

    posted a message on What is your go-to food?

    Usually baked potatoes at the start, but then steak all the way for me ... I have got a Guardian Farrm, so as a by product of its prismarine and XP generation I end up with more fish than i ever need, so one time tried using cooked fish as a primary food, but the saturation levels let it down, always a problem in fighting as far as i'm concerned ...

    Well assuming you are using a PC JAVA, provide the seed number and stronghold X & Z coordinates (press F3 for this), plus the MC version the stronghold area generated in, and someone could use an x-ray program to tell you if its in the area or not ...

    ... and blew up the area around it on a copy world ...


    Exactly how much is that? The current stronghold i'm at had two librarys, one was 70 blocks away from the portal room, the other 120. Strongholds can generate over a large area, and rooms can be on various heights. You can get them generate with no End Portal room i beleive but i think thats rare, Not looked hard enough i reckon.

    posted a message on Villager trades in 1.12

    If you are playing 1.12, then a villagers trades which have become locked can only be unlocked by doing some of their other trades, I thnk its random which of the other unlocked trades to go for, or how many you need to do, but if they are trades you're not interested in, you'll just have to sacrifice some stuff for these trades one item at a time and check each time afterwards to see if the villager gives off the Pink/Purple particles - that means all their current trades have reset ...


    What i normally do is try just one item on an unlocked trade; if they dont reset then rather try another item of the same trade, i try a diff trade completely and again just trade the one item ...

    How many blocks do you think I need to travel?


    I'm only playing 1.13.2, but i dont think anything has changed, in short they are quite rare, and the only one I have found in my world was approx 2000 blocks west and 14600 blocks North from spawn! Luckily mine was nearly the max size you can find; they do vary. Good luck!

    posted a message on Which way do I travel?

    Also:


    There are three types of explorer maps: woodland, ocean, and buried treasure. The maps differ from a normal map, in that it shows the area's land-water outline, as well as an orange striated (striped) texture for areas below sea level, and the blank map texture for land above sea level. The maps show a section of land that contains a woodland mansion, monument or buried treasure respectively. This may not be the nearest such structure to the player. The structures are displayed as a small icon. If the player icon is smaller than it would be on a normal map, that means the player is a great distance away. When the player is less than 1027 blocks away from the map border, the icon returns to the proper size. When the player reaches the map's area of land (512×512), the map fills in like a normal map

    posted a message on Problems building semi automatic farm (Wheat, carrots, etc)

    Yeah, what Palin says, you could take out the last dispenser temporarily and put a redstone lamp in; see if it lights up when you push the button, if not, power not reaching.


    Could probably do with a screenshot of your redstone circuitry as well.

    posted a message on Construction material preference thread

    I usually prefer a block which has slab and stair options, and with good blast resistance, so I invariably use stone bricks. I hate the texture of cobblestone, so its only used a filling material or for something like my nether minecraft tunnels where its not an aesthetic consideration. Its always bugged me in minecraft they've added so many blocks over time but not many of them have slab/stair configurations, or are added later, not at the time they add the block (For example, I play 1.13.2 so i'm missing out the stair/slab thing they've recently added for Andesite, Diorite and Granite which would have been useful). I like to half slab floors in my bases now as it prevent s mob spawns and you can have lighting where you like as opposed to where you need. I also tend to construct my more recent main bases with a double wall, such as stone bricks on the outside, and a decorative block on the inside.


    Dont really use wood much, sometimes as a flooring. I've used a lot of glass on underwater projects

    posted a message on Guardian Spawning

    If using a 2 block wide tunnel (the entrance is 2 blocks wide i believe?), you could run your tunnel up to the entrance, but remove the water just between the entrance and the edge of the monument (use signs or something to hold the water back) like my sketch below.


    Hex's U bend idea ( :P ) would also work, Guardians only spawn inside the bounding area of the Monument itself which does not include the pillars it often generates on. Obvs, guardians do appear in these areas but that is because they have usually drifted down from above or swum in from elsewhere.
