    posted a message on Nether Portals seen in the open?
    Um, actually, I have. I've seen at least 5 or 6, all of which I didn't make, and they all go back to the first one- on the Nether side, then back at the first one I made when I go back through. The thing is, all the ones I made do the same thing too. I have no idea why.

    An empty cart doesn't move as far a one with you in it, because it's not weighted. This is my perfect booster with less track than the loop one- (The half tiles are the track)

    posted a message on unreliable booster in SMP?
    I play offline, but the best I've found is 3 flat, then 2 sloping up. You have to make an extra flat piece at the top to make it slope, but then you just undo it. They only provide max boost if the cart is all the way against the block, & it doesn't seem like one slope is enough to push it all the way back. It also seems to work better if the block is stone & not dirt. This is only my experience, it may not work for everyone, I just thought I'd tell you what worked for me.

    posted a message on Weird Portal Problem. Has this happened to you?
    Okay, I made my first portal at my first official base, and it works just fine. I then made other portals in other places, some decently far from the original. The thing is, when I go through them, I always come into the Nether at that same entrance point that first portal made. And when I go back through it, I end up at the other side of that portal, at my base. It's sorta nice in a way, because I built a portal at my spawn point, walk through it into the Nether, then walk back through it to go immediately to my base. I can also go exploring while carrying 10 blocks of obsidian, to make a portal and go right back to my base. I've even noticed other randomly placed portals around my world that I didn't make, that still go back to that same one.
    It's bad in a way, because I only come out at that one portal in the Nether, and have to keeping going farther and farther to get light stone. I also can't use it to get to other places in my world, which can be annoying. Has this happened to anyone else?

    posted a message on Good way to tackle dungeons
    I tried out an interesting strategy for dungeons that seems to work really well. Firstly, I seal up the opened part with either glass, or stone minus one line so I could see inside. Then, I dig a tunnel under it and expand it to a room 3 blocks high, stopping when the stones change, so I know that's where the dungeon stops. Then I mine one square at a time from underneath, replacing them right away. Occasionally, a creature will fall through, but it's much easier to survive when it's only one at a time, instead of getting surrounded normally. Spiders can't even fit through one space, so if it's just them, you're basically safe. I can still open chests from underneath, and I get to collect all the mossy stone I mined. I've been doing it this way every time now and I was wondering if anyone else has tried this.
