    posted a message on Mods vs. No Mods
    I once used mods like SPC and TooManyItems... it destroyed the fun in Minecraft, so I took a break (2 months).
    Now I'm playing Minecraft like never before. I like the game as it is.

    posted a message on Help me, wooden house vulnerable to lightning.
    Quote from Xnut

    Lightning is supposed to only strike straight down. So having all you top block non-flamable should protect you. Using wooden slabs, stone or dirt will protect your house.

    If you want to make it even safer you should have non-flamable blocks around your house as well, that way the lightning can not jump one block to the side and find somewhere dry to spread out.

    Another option, that is slightly strange would be to build a platform of glass up in the sky (in the cloud level would be good). This way neither rain nor lighting will hit the ground around your house, and it will not be easy to spot the platform since it's built out of glass and partially covered by clouds.


    I could easily see the glass platform if I made one. Because the building is only about 5-8 meters below cloud level.
    As you can see here:

    I... Sir, did you not read? Lightning cannot catch anything on fire, regardless of whether there is rain or not.


    Wut? Two trees burnt down from the inside recently....

    The storm is over, I survived.

    Yes, rain does extinguish the fire in about 2 seconds or less, but you know that fire can go through a one block thick wall and spread from the inside out.

    Top it with wooden slabs. They aren't flammable.


    But I've had a lightning strike under a cliff.. they aren't straight down.

    I was placing windows in my house when I heard rain. The rain lasted a whole day, but didn't stop. After the sunset, I saw a lightning strike not far away from where I am. My whole gigantic building is made out of wood D: Is there anyway to protect my house?

    This is my home:


    EDIT: The storm is over, but in case of future storms, I'll consider some of your ideas.

    It's a picture of a ravine and a stronghold (?) generated on the same place.
    I guess strongholds are the same as that structure jeb posted on google+.

    Source: His Google+ Account. Google it.

    EDIT: The picture has been posted before, but not a super-brighter version of it.

    posted a message on Minecraft- Too Easy?
    No way in hell this game is easy, no way in hell.
    Minecraft is unforgiving. And scary.
    ...
    That's why I love this game so much.
    Mobs could have been improved though, give them a smarter AI.

    The very, very.. very first diamond tool I ever made was a sword. I can't believe I still remember that, it's a whole year ago. Shortly after, I hit lava in my mine and my sword.. gone.. forever.
