    posted a message on BTW Work-around?
    Ok here's my problem. I have been playing with Better Than Wolves for a little while, and absolutely love it. The latest update no longer lets you do anything with buckets of water.

    My style of play in MC is Build crude shelter, kill 2/3.sheep, make bed, sleep, set up farm, expand.

    Without the ability to do proper agriculture, the game is nigh unplayable for me now. I mean your entire MC Life must now revolve around dung - and guess what - not every seed has wolves anywhere close. A buddy of mine has been exploring a seed for close to a month, and he has yet to see a wolf or even a cow. I've had several seeds in the past where I haven't even seen a Wolf - and how am I supposed to quickly gather supplies for a proper trek to go find a wolf if none are remotely close to my seed's spawn?

    I don't want to spend 3 weeks searching for one wolf, and pray it doesnt die before I can find another to mate it with or lead it thousands of block back to my home.

    Now - with all that ranting out of the way - I had a thought - can I have TWO minecraft directories on my PC, one VANILLA - Where I can go to do my terraforming and agriculture first, and then COPY that world to the second instance of MC, where BTW is running, so I can add all the fun perks of BTW in?

    That or can I just disable the new water-tardation feature of the latest BTW?

    posted a message on Naturally grown Jungle Trees?
    Ok so I am having a blast walking around the new biome and such, cutting down the smaller jungle trees, collecting saplings and planting them in my orchard...

    But they will not grow...

    Ive planted the saps in 2x2 layout, and I am waiting day after minecraft-day, and they will not sprout into their UBERTREE adulthood.

    Why?

    Can they ONLY be grown with bonemeal added?

    Rylek, Avast has released an update to the definition file and has fixed the false positive for the server.exe

    Hope this helps with the download as well.



    WOOT! It works! Download was available, and no popups at all! Now if you will excuse me, I am off to hug my creeper-proof bunker!

    Hope all is working for you as well, Jim!

    Rylec, I already did the bypass surgery on mine, ran malware bytes, did system scan, bypassed avast for server.exe only, (only because no one else is having the issue, eg. other antivirus brands) and I have had false positives with Avast before. However if you want to be sure, you should wait for a response from mojang. Then see if avast comes back with a definition update that fixes this issue.
    Good luck.


    Ah. I gotcha. And with the bypass/exception Avast still gives the malware popup/won't download?


    I mean its not THAT big a deal that I can't run my server until a new version comes out, the group I run with in MC, everyone has a server to run, but dang, I had one heck of an Obsidian bunker built that took about 14 trips to the nether to make! lol

    Update: Tech friend had me go through 3 complete boot scans, then an install of MalwareBytes, a scan with that, then a complete uninstall and reinstall of AVAST. There is NO malware there, yet AVAST screams about the MP Client whenever I try and download it.

    I am going to give it 2 days wait, and then if no breaking news about a malware threat is confirmed by mojang, we are going to make an exception for the client within AVAST and see what happens then. I will keep you (specifically you, JimmyT961, since we are having the exact same issue) posted.

    In the meantime, if anyone has any more info, help, please post it.

    Sorry, I can't help but I have the same problem. Avast tells me that minecraft server.exe contains "win32 malware-gen" and puts it in the virus chest. I am using server 1.1 version. If I go back and use server version 1.0 it starts but can't run any games due to incompatibility.
    HELP would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.


    YEAH, that's what its doing to me as well. the win32 malware-gen thing. I was too freaked out earlier today to provide better details.

    I am working with a friend that is a good bit more tech savvy when it comes to virus/malware stuff than I am. If we get the problem pegged down, I will let you know!

    posted a message on Avast Antivirus killed off my Minecraft Server
    Ok so I tried to start my Multiplayer server (for the second time today), and all of a sudden, AVAST alerted me that it contained a virus, and proceeded to stab it to death.

    I ran a scan, nothing is out of the ordinary, and the server ran fine this morning, all last night, last week, last month, etc.. but all of a sudden, today this happens.

    When I go to redownload the Server exe off the Minecraft's site, it gives me another virus warning and will not let me DL the program.

    Can anyone help me out? What can I do to get around this? Is there a sudden threat of an actual virus in the client???

    The single player game client runs fine. My computer has received no updating of any kind since the shutdown of my Multiplayer client this morning and this sudden virus alert, so I have no idea what could possibly have happened.

    Any help given would be MUCH APPRECIATED!

    Since 1.0 >_>


    No. you could still swim up while taking damage in 1.0. Now you cant. You run out of air under water, and you're screwed

    Ok, so 1.1 hit me like a ton of bricks today - and then it killed me.

    On my main world, several of my bases are under water and I need to swim to the surface to... well get to the surface...

    Well, on one of the swims to the surface, I ran out of breath and began to take damage, and discovered that with 1.1, when you take damage, you can no longer swim upward, and you just sink and die.

    WTFFFFFFF?!?!?

    Please, devs, give us diving bells or scuba gear, or just fix this!

    Oh and while you're at it, a miner's helmet would be awesome too.

    posted a message on INCREDIBLE EDIBLE EGGS!
    I keep wondering why the obvious use for eggs hasn't been added to MC yet. I often start to starve to death on my maps, and I always have chests full of eggs I cannot eat.

    GIVE US INCREDIBLE EDIBLE EGGS!
