    posted a message on NOW Endermen are chillingly creepy.
    One time I was in a narrow trench I was digging for a lava trap and out of nowhere I pull the corner and stare an Enderman in the face. I ****ing jumped. Once I got my bearings I killed it very easily though, but I was still shaking for a few seconds at the utter jolt I got.

    Quote from aIpokissa

    Well, the only real problem with it was griefing. You got a ton of ice and flooded someones house in 5 minutes.


    That doesn't make any sense, water buckets are far more destructive in this sense due to their ease to acquire compared to ice.

    Kill off other wild passive mobs like squids and cows. There is a "population cap" on passive mobs, that is no more will spawn if a certain amount are already alive. A similar, but larger cap exists on hostile mobs.

    posted a message on To everyone dogging Mojang's release style
    Personally I support the idea of the prereleases, but I find playing them COMPLETELY ruins the magic of playing the finished update. I ignored all posts about 1.9 and when I went into 1.0.0 I was totally blind. If I had spoiled everything by playing the prerelease, 1.0.0 would not have interested me at all.

    I went to the End to fight the dragon and got knocked off the edge of the world by him. I started this world a week ago and I STILL don't think I'm ready for the final battle.

    posted a message on Breeding Mooshrooms
    What version of Minecraft have you guys been playing the past week?

    Mooshrooms are mushroom covered cows that spawn in Mycelium biomes, which sometimes appear in the ocean.

    Sheep, when bread, will randomly pick one of the colours of the parents for the baby (I.E. brown and white sheep breed, 50% chance baby will be white 50% it will be brown)

    As for getting a mooshroom into your pen, I have absolutely no idea. If you have a lot of cobblestone, maybe you could build a giant bridge to the biome and guide them across it?

    posted a message on What is your highest amount of diamonds that you've found in a cave?
    I don't cave explore very much since it's dangerous and relatively inefficient, but my record is roughly 18 in one cave in a multiplayer server.

    posted a message on What did you do when you found your first stronghold?
    I ended up straight in the room with the End portal because I was using Eyes of Ender to find one. I didn't ever visit a stronghold in 1.8.1, so I pretty much saw my first stronghold a few days ago.

    As a side note, I had EXACTLY 10 Eyes of Ender (3 had broken), and there were 10 open slots. I got lucky.

    posted a message on What was your best moment on Minecraft?
    Finding a vein of 9 diamond, then mining another 4 or so blocks forward and finding a vein of 4. I had the biggest smile when I saw the second vein.

    An underground utopia with water coming from above and tree's and blue wall on the ceiling to look like the sky


    Agreed, kind of like that guy that used blue wool, grass and water to create a beautiful environment then opened the door leading outside and it turned out he was in the Nether. It would be kind of fascinating.

    posted a message on Why I think branch mining is pointless
    I completely agree, the point is to expose blocks, not expose all blocks in a region. I've found over 50 diamond last weekend through just mining in almost random 3x3 tunnels in a straight line. Every chunk generates a single vein of diamond according to the wiki, so the more time you spend in one area, the less time you'll spend finding diamond veins in other areas.

    posted a message on Those who play Single Player the majority of the time: why?
    Quote from scynscatha

    When I play single player, I am happy because I know my stuff will not be griefed, that I am the first one to find this cave or walk along this river, I can create uninhibited, and while I may be alone, the world is solely mine to change and edit as I see fit.

    That is why I play single player.


    Same here. I love the "the world is yours to shape" feeling you get in singleplayer. There are no rules, no griefers, no lag, etc. so you can play the way you want.

    posted a message on Endermen
    It's the teleporting. Even in daylight when you strike them they completely flip out and start warping all over the place, sometimes into caves or in extremely distant places you can barely see. Therefore, I lose the Enderman and miss out on a chance for a pearl.

    posted a message on Endermen
    So I started up a new world to enjoy 1.0.0 to it's fullest. So far every feature has impressed me, although I've been able to get on top of everything with no major challenge. One thing that continues to challenge me though is killing Endermen. I see them occasionally in the mornings (Endermen don't burn in the sun now, didn't you know?) and despite having an enchanted diamond sword and about 8 stacks of arrows, my arsenal is useless against the teleporting bastards. I can get a maximum of 3 diamond sword strikes in before the Enderman either teleports so far away that they despawn, or they teleport underground and I lose them.

    So what is the best method of killing these guys?
