    posted a message on Making a trap for wandering mobs?

    That sounds a bit like a mob farm, only applied to the surface.


    Instead of flowing water which can get a bit annoying to the ears, you can flank the trap with snow golems which will push the incoming mobs into the trap with their snowballs.

    I went to my mine every day uphill and in the snow. Both ways!

    Oh, Herobrine exists. He is the player that was in that world before you. He built, he explored, he dominated until he became too powerful for anything. Then he became bored. Disinterested in the world until you arrived. Now he watches from a distance, wondering if you will find his creations that he buried most carefully. Curious if you, too, may become too powerful for the world. And decide if he may just have to stop you.

    I was born 06 May 1950... I'm not too old!

    I am to crotchety to play multi player and despise PVP! It's ruining an other wise great game.


    On the upside, you can mine your front lawn to discourage those damn kids from getting on your lawn.

    posted a message on They're wasting their time!

    It is their time to waste. Anything done since the game hit official release has been just extra content, which I definitely appreciate. (I like igloos :) )

    Maybe try worrying less about what they do and more about what you do in your game, unless your chief form of entertainment is camping the forum waiting for the next news update on development. (Doesn't sound so fun to me)

    If you are looking to breed cows, make sure to give them ample room to move around in, otherwise, as MartinTheMess said, they will push each other into blocks that will likely suffocate them.

    You might want to post this over in the Creative Mode thread, since you are working on this in Creative.

    posted a message on Microsoft Near Deal to Buy Minecraft Maker Mojang

    Never bother quoting Kotaku or other Gawker sites. All of what they post is opinionated bull and unsubstantiated. Stay away from those sites, seriously.

    It's not so much the thought of Microsoft making the offer, as Mojang actually considering it. I am going to wait for official word from them before deciding whether they have lost all their minds.

    posted a message on What is your worst moment in minecraft?
    Quote from iamalexenglish»
    Getting so close to level 30 and then getting killed by a creeper by behind

    That has caused more headdesk moments for me than I can count. I would get into a heated battle with mobs, usually zombies, and a friggin ninja creeper would come up behind me and blow everything to smithereens. I take a little solace that at least one mob got caught in the blast, as well, but usually by the time I am getting caught in such a battle, I am so deep in some cavern that it would take a lucky twist for me to find my inventory again. Twice I did manage it, only to find a zombie had scooped up my enchanted diamond sword. Having that used against me doesn't upset me so much as the thought of the chance of the zombie despawning before the loose items would, taking my sword with it. Friggin looting zombies...friggin ninja creepers....friggin caves. Frig.

    posted a message on Ice is no longer transparent?
    It wasn't just people suffocating in leaves, but the horses, as well. I lost a horse myself due to that. As for ice, at the simplest, it would seem to be working as it should now. People(including creepers, as distasteful as that sounds) shouldn't be able to breathe in such a thing.

    However, I do see prime opportunity here for a cryogenic mod, to preserve mobs for display or later use, such as creepers, chickens, and such. As for the stock game, the thought of suffocating creepers in ice does give me pleasure to no end.
