    posted a message on Does moving encourage mob spawning?
    Now I am aware of the distances that will spawn mobs and not despawn them. What I do not know is if I am moving while remaining within this range will that encourage more mobs to spawn? Another example that I think this will apply to is if I have a farm with identicle spawning pads of 16x16 stacked vetically, and I can not be within that range for all of the pads at one time. Would moving, with a minecart, into the range for each pad one by one over a long period be better than afk'ing in one spot?

    Why are you even still contesting this? Are you really that much in denial?

    No interest does NOT mean "no interest". Read the fine print.

    Honestly you're the one being horribly ignorant for no reason other than to boost your own skewed views.


    BTW your math is horribly off. Further proving my point you have no idea what you are getting into.
    I did not do math it was a simple example! I didn't find a $2000 dollar computer for 50 dollars a month. I made that up as an example. They accumulate the interest and if I pay late at all they will add it all at the end, but I won't be late. There's no reason for me to. Also, depending on where I shop, this will actually help my credit. All I am saying is that I would rather pay possibly a bit more within an 18 or so month period than pay thousands all at one time. That's not even what this topic was about. I'm so sorry that i disagree with you. Let's just leave this topic like it is and not come back to this, I suppose I'll just do more research on my own. Thanks for helping.

    If you only pay what you can afford, then you can wait to get a computer until you have the money to buy it.

    You are completely ignoring the point. If you wish to stay ignorant, that's your own issue. But just know that you are not making smart decisions here AT ALL.

    You also don't seem to realize they increase interest rates whenever they feel like it, usually during the last payments.

    Don't be surprised if they change that 4% interest up to 1,500%.



    You seriously think it is only going to be $100 more over those 18 months?

    You are either willfully being ignorant, or are very, very, very naive.

    DO
    NOT
    FINANCE

    Take it from someone with more experience than you in this area, who finances things out to other people. It is NEVER a good option.

    You are actually being quite ignorant. I found loads of reasonable sales that add NO interest if paid in full by the 18 month period which is incredibly affordable. So no interest + 18 months + $50 a month = computer now and no debt. Much better than $2000 now and no debt.

    Do not finance things. Do you really want to start debt so early in life?

    Buy parts all at once, or buy a laptop when you have the money.

    Don't finance things unless you want to pay 2x what it's worth.

    There is a thing called interest, you should read up on it:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interest

    What you might spend $800 on, because you decided to finance it, will end up costing you $1,500 over time with the interest.

    No laptops have good ventilation, they all run hotter than they should because of poor design and cooling. Get a desktop if possible.

    I won't go into debt. I have good credit becuase I only pay for what I can afford and I always pay early. I know my limits. I am wiling to pay more in order to have very reasonable monthly or bi-monthly payments. I know what interest is by the way.
    Quote from Thescorpi0n

    So much this. Don't buy things you don't have the money for, unless it's something huge that is unavoidable (like a house).
    Taking out loans for small things like a computer is a terrible idea, and you will regret it.

    Why would I regret it? paying 1,000 over an 18 month period compared to paying 900 at once sounds like a win to me.
    Quote from RedRock1998

    Never put it on a bed , keep it on a hard surface like a table or desk :/


    You could build an APU Build , it should record at decent setting, it would also be cheaper than a laptop!
    I made a dedicated build for you if you change your mind:

    That is really all I need? That's really cheap!

    Cooling pads do not work.

    The main reasons that I do not want to build a pc is because as far as I know I can't get that financed. I would have to buy all the parts over a long period of time or pay a large amount all at once. With a laptop I can get it financed and have it that day. What about laptops with extensive ventilation? I've seen some laptops with a lot of ventilation.

    Yes it is, it could throttle or even melt your laptop if it gets bad.

    That doesn't guarantee that it will work fine on yours.

    Here's a challenge: Try to find a YOUTUBER who records primarily on a laptop.

    I have cooling methods and Generikb.

    A10 is only $20 more. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16834312829
    That should work?!? It's so much cheaper than I thought!

    Recording on a laptop isn't going to be good.
    Laptops usually only have 1 hard drive, and it's better to record to a different drive then the one you're playing on. They also heat up pretty bad.
    Are you sure you need the portability?

    It's not even the portability that I'm wanting. Heating up is not a problem. I've seen people play on laptops and they appear just fine.

    I'm fairly illiterate when it comes to computers.
    I much prefer a laptop ,than a desktop, capable of playing MC and recording MC with AT LEAST 30 Fps.
    I know building a pc is cheeper in the long run but I'd rather make monthly payments than a combination of relatively 'small' ones. I simply need to know the specs that will run minecraft within the criteria aforementioned.
    Don't worry about my budget or currency. That is something I can figure out myself.
    Just keep in mind I do not need a laptop that can play the most demanding games. I only plan on playing MC.
    Any and all help/advice is much appreciated.

    My current laptop specs are as follows:
    Manufacturer: Asus
    Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz
    Ram: 6.00 GB
    System Type: 64-bit
    Windows 7

    You sir, are a genius! How long did it take you to come up with this?

    Thank you! I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'm a genius, but I'm flattered. In response to your question, the time it took to think of the idea was maybe a few minutes. To think of how I'd do it took a day or so. To actually build it took a few hours.
