    posted a message on Minecraft console "Maps"

    I'd like to eventually play some maps on Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch if I ever have a long trip ahead of me. The problem is though, I don't know if its possible to "download" and exactly play MC Maps on a console.


    I do know it may be possible with some mods for the actual console which may be a ways away (And there's no guarantee of that ever happening.) But it would be cool if I could take some various maps to play while on the go.

    Well, if you don't care about making another junk chest. I would highly recommend making that other chest, and link it to hoppers below the farm that eventually fall into lava.


    Something I also found is that you forgot to make your repeater (the one next to that comparator on top.) set on one tick, I don't know if you made that intentional or not but the reason the guy in the tutorial set it on one tick was to prevent burn out with the redstone, and having problems with the sorting systems becoming jammed.

    Just click the repeater once and I think it should be fixed, but if its not fixed still go for the other method above.


    If it still doesn't work, make sure to re-check everything, hoppers, redstone components, so fourth becuase everything should be working normally.

    posted a message on Blaze farm help please ? :)

    Can you take screenshots of the build you have setup?

    Also about the entity problem. I cannot follow 90% of what you just explained about the mobs / items dropping (those are entities I think.)

    This is just a guess but, maybe the redstone signal could be interfering with the other hoppers and shat I mean by that is;


    With compartors, they can recieve a redstone output from chests, hoppers, or anything that stores items (Minus Shulker Boxes, and Ender Chests as of 1.11)


    Try adding three more redstone to the back of the contraption, that MIGHT help make it functional and not interfere with the other hoppers inputs & outputs, it seems like you have some repeaters right under the comparters to activate something.



    As stupid as it sounds i'd try it just incase,

    If that doesn't work could you link to the tutorial you found?

    posted a message on TNT Trap Bait?

    It honestly really depends on the economy & what players see as rare or suspicious.


    A few questions;


    1. How big is the community, is it normally about 10 - 30 players or about 100 - 1000

    2. Is there money in the game (like a money plugin of some sort.)

    3. What is considered "rare" in game, for example, would diamonds be the comparison of wooden logs on the server, or are they extremely difficult to find?

    4. How othen do you (or others.) Go mining on the server to find items, or harvest materials.

    5. Is flying a perk in the game (It might ruin some traps if players have acsess to /fly as it renders them to have an upper hand in combat and the ability of what they can see.

    6. How many new players othen join the server, are new players common to find, or is the server full of regular players you normally see on othen.

    7. What materials do you have acsess to at the moment. Do you have mostly all items on the server, or are you starting out. Budget might matter,

    About the only control you have that will optimize your chances where lightning will strike is to reduce your render distance so the lightning has a smaller space to strike in.

    That's an actual thing in Minecraft :o

    No, not that I've seen anyway. It seems to just be bones, presumably had to do with being last on the line. I could swap them with the coal and see what happens tomorrow if you think that would help.




    Is that all the redstone you have in the area, or is there more above or under ground? I'd like to know becuase it would help me not accidentally messing up your contraption by using trial and error :P


    Edit: And if you think thats the issue, than go for it and try it out.

    Just make sure to disable your mob farm first, or other automated items to prevent malfunctions.

    Thank you guys for the confirmation, how does lighting in Minecraft normally "spawn" i'd like to take advantage of it much as possible.


    Is there anything on the wiki that talks about lightning being summoned in chunks, or on mobs/entities if a set of conditions are met?

    Are any of the other items dropping accidentally into the lava, like the skulls or coal? Or is it just the bones?

    posted a message on Lightning in Minecraft

    So i'm thinking about creating a creeper farm that I would use for gunpowder to then be used for fire works in game. I was wondering something.


    There is a way to make it so creepers can become "charged", and once they are charged I THINK they drop more gunpowder, exciperence, and they increase the chances for mob heads to spawn in game once they are killed. Which is neat becuase it will let me have a production of mob heads to (and maybe player heads!)


    I saw on a youtube video some guy making a charged creeper farm, and basically how he set it up is, he has boats on a top roof to further increase the chances of lightning spawning there. I wanted to know if it was true though.


    Here is the video link, its a little outdated but I think its still a thing in Minecraft

    posted a message on Is there a way to get a player (or your on head) in survival mode without commands

    Well about command blocks, I can't use those in game since its ran on a server. I'd need special permission & I highly doubt the administration would let me.


    They want you to buy player heads $2 USD (per player or head.)



    I will look into & study up a bit on minecraft player heads to look for solutions but I highly doubt there is one.

    I was actually wondering this. I think at one point it was possible to actually kill people with a bunch of falling gravel & an anvil to get a player head in Minecraft (or your own.) But I can't figure out how to do it again, or find any tutorials.


    Is there a way to manually chop off someone's head in game (or your own) without commands. As gruesome as it sounds, I would like to use it for décor to show & credit players on a display stand.
