May 11, 2011Update: This thread is kind of old. Yes, it's been necro'd a few times, and I'm glad for that. But this thread was created before we even knew that there would be ocelots in the game. At one point there were some people interested in doing this as a mod, but they kind of lost interest when ocelots were officially released. I'd still like to see cats done as a block, but any way you slice it, they're going to have to share the spotlight with some pretty frisky official vanilla Minecraft cats.Posted in: Suggestions
This is also a Mod Request in that forum, to see if there are any modders who may have missed this thread, but might want to try doing a cat block.
For the people who want cats in the game, I suggest: not a mob, but a block. You cannot craft a cat block; they must be found. Sometimes they are found curled up in dungeon chests, but they are also found in the wild in any biome, in the branches of trees, and even in the shallower parts of natural caves. The cat block can be picked up (by punching it, the usual minecraft method of picking things up) and placed anywhere, as a normal block. I personally plan to put one on top of my bookshelf. You cannot stack cats in your inventory.
The cat block's normal state is asleep, with eyes closed. Cat blocks sleep all the time. They don't chase mice, they don't meow. They don't run around. Running around all crazy-like is for wolves.
However, a cat block can be woken up. Right-clicking on the cat block will cause it to open its eyes for 8 seconds, after which they will automatically close again.
A cat block can be fed cooked fish or raw fish, but this has no effect. The cat simply eats your food. Cats do not show gratitude.
Other mobs, including wolves, ignore the cat block, and the cat block ignores them.
Cat blocks come various colours (see images, below). Cat blocks cannot be dyed (or can they? read the rest of the thread for discussion; it's never too late to weigh in).
Other Ideas from the thread that need work/playtesting:
Cats might scare away spiders. Spiders won't approach within X squares of a Cat Block unless they are pushed or attacked first. Perhaps the cat's eyes must be open for this function to work, and it needs to be fed fish (raw or cooked) to keep it awake. Tentatively, 1 piece of fish or 1 bucket of milk will keep the cat awake for 1 minute. Every time you feed the cat, the timer is reset to 1 minute. Credit to ThatDutchIdiot for development of this idea.
When you walk on a Cat Block, instead of the normal footstep, it makes a tiny fraction of a purring sound.
Quote from toatanu »I just thought that a cat block should occasionally delete, spawn a cat mob, have the cat MOB walk to another position on cobblestone, brick, obsidian, planks, or other crafted blocks near(five blocks?) it, then despawn and put a sleeping cat BLOCK placed there. Kinda like sand that moves when it decides to, and horizontal.
Quote from valdarkit should be a mob that wanders in a set area and picking it up and placing it "tames" it.
Edit for Images!

Quote from llama66613 »Nether Cat
Okay, so I'm not the best artist. This is just to give an idea of what such a block might look like.

This is sort of what I want a cat block to look like, part block and part mob.
Nov 19, 2011It was late at night and I was a bit bored so I decided to write this little story about the history of Endermen:Posted in: Fan Art
The Endermen: Long ago there was a group of humans from continents in the southern region of the world. They were oppressed by the more advanced civilizations from the north and so many of them fled into the deep dark caverns of minecraftia, where they would occasionally venture to the surface to resupply food and lumber. For ages they lived underground and grew accustomed to the darkness. They became masters at mining and building with stone so they constructed large underground strongholds to protect themselves from the outside world. They despised those from the surface and would imprison and usually torture and kill any explorer unlucky enough to venture into a stronghold. They destroyed all their wooden structures because they reminded them of the surface and with this wood they began to form massive libraries where their researchers would store thousands of books. The subterranean race grew very advanced, but they still felt to close to the surface and wanted to escape further. After thousands of years underground their race had spread out to great distances with multiple strongholds scattered through the underworld. Their scientists were discovering something incredible that would allow them to escape Minecraftia and the memory of their past oppression: an alternate dimension. Construction began on a portal that would lead them out of their strongholds and into a new world. The dark energies of the experiments morphed many of the scientists into frightening creatures. Tall, black, slender creatures with glowing eyes. They were the only ones capable of entering the newly formed portal. This turned out to be a perfect safeguard to keep regular humans out. By making a sacrifice of their original human form they all willingly morphed into the slender creatures and entered the portal, leaving Minecraftia behind and sealing themselves in the new dimension.
The Rediscovery and Release: Hundreds of years later miners came across the strongholds now worn down by age and erosion and inhabited by monsters. When they discovered the portal room they were fascinated and tried everything they could to activate it and discover its hidden treasures. Through a series of risky experiments they managed to activate the portal very briefly. It shook the world with a mighty force and threatened to collapse the cavern on the miners. They grew frightened and tried to flee. The portal flickered and spat out bright glowing sparks and then everything went dark. The miners were trapped hundreds of feet below the surface with no way out. There was a whispering and the miners were soon surrounded by dozens of glowing eyes. The creatures walked around as if they had no idea what had just happened. They ignored the miners, until one miner spoke out asking who they were. The endermen were furious because they had spent ages trying to disconnect themselves from the world and with the miners acknowledgment they knew that they were no longer safe. They killed the miners to ensure that they would not be discovered by anyone else. Because of the miners’ folly of reactivating the portal enderman now walk the earth again unaware that they have been unwillingly returned to the world they despise, until someone acknowledges them. If you ever acknowledge the existence of an endermen there is no escape. They will hunt down any witness and destroy them.

1.)Some people cannot afford $20 for a game
2.)Some people's parents think its a waste of money to pay this much for a game
3.)Some people don't have internet at their house, and cannot play
Now most people could just wait for the pre-release, and pay half the price, and afford this, but this goes on to #2
Sometimes, parent can be really stubborn and just don't want to pay for things(like mine). My father(I live with only him) does not want to pay for the game and has a REALLY low credit card balance, and doesn't want to spend too much without going under(#3). Now i am currently cutting grass and babysitting my nephew every two weeks, giving me $80 a week. When i get enough money, in buying a new computer with an upgraded graphics card so i can play MC without the lag(i have major lag so if a creeper comes, it like teleports and blows everything up). I need $500 to buy the computer and pay the full price.
To make a long-ish story short, not everybody can pay for the game, but those who can just don't want to spend so much money, and they are, in fact, wrong. But don't forget everyone isn't as fortunate to play this wonderful, wonderful game.
Nov 10, 2011Im thinking someone should make a unreal tournament 1999 texture pack along with some skins,it would be great because the 1999 game had some great memories for me,im sure others on this fourm miss the game and want minecraft and unreal tournament together. :smile.gif:Posted in: Resource Pack Discussion
Nov 1, 2011Regular_Hexahedron posted a message on Player Crafted Monster Spawner - But Not Ridiculously Powerful Like You'd ThinkMonsters are a fun part of Minecraft combat, but sadly hard to include in Minecraft building. It'd be fun if there was a way to create player placeable spawners.Posted in: Suggestions
But of course that has the potential to be far too powerful, and make harvesting loot far too easy. So players can't be allowed to build regular spawners.
Here's my idea for the player placeable spawner.
The crafting recipe would be four blaze rods and four iron cell bars , arranged like so:
When placed it would look like a slightly red hot orange hued version of the dungeon spawner.
On its own the player placed spawner would do nothing. First you'd have to right click on the spawner, which would open up a GUI with two item slots. One would only accept rotten flesh, the other would only accept bones.
Each time the spawner receives a brief redstone charge it would consume one rotten flesh and one bone and produce a zombie. One zombie would be created regardless of whether a player is nearby or not, and regardless of surrounding light levels. This zombie is identical to the mob already in game, and would attack any nearby players.
When the spawner runs out of bones and/or flesh it would be unable to produce more zombies until it is refilled.
I think this would be a very useful thing in challenge maps (being able to make exactly X enemies appear in a certain room) and in games and sports that use monsters. Yet the requirement that you trigger it with redstone, and use up loot from mobs to fuel it, keeps it from being too powerful.

Oct 9, 2011The_Only_Bongo posted a message on Spider Dungeon, 2 Music Discs, Abandoned Mine Shaft, Pumpkins, Ravines in Ravines, 2 Villages, Floating Islands, AND Awesome LanPosted in: SeedsPlease Note: You must have Beta 1.8 in order to have the map seed come in correctly. If you have the 1.9 Pre-Release, it may not load correctly and you may get a completely different world. I know this because I had a couple of friends who had 1.9 Prerelease try out the seed and get totally different maps. Maybe it's just bad luck, maybe it works on 1.9, I don't know. But I know for shure that it works on 1.8 because I tried the seed multiple times and kept on getting the same results.
TL;DR - 1.8 Only. No 1.9 Prerelease
Hello, my name is Bongo. Always have been and will forever be known as Bongo, but I know you don't want to hear my life story, so I will cut to the chase.
You should spawn somewhere near these coordinates (X: -86; Y: 76; Z: 258; F: 2). If you are not near these coordinates, please travel there as quick as possible, and then I will go down the list.
Okay, you there? Good. You SHOULD of spawned under a tree. Turn left and walk forward until you come into a small clearing. Now, in front of you and on both sides of you, there should be sheer cliff faces. Why am I doing this? To make sure that you are in the right spot.
If you followed these directions, you should see something like this:
Use those tall grasses as a reference.
To get the pumpkins, climb the wall in front of you. Climb to the very top and then head right. You should see a single pumpkin. Collect that and then head NORTH (Just follow the clouds)
In 1.8, you cannot craft pumpkins into seeds, but when 1.9 comes out, you will be able to do so. So hold onto those pumpkins until the 1.9 Update!
Pumpkin Location: X: -176; Y: 112; Z: 241
Now that you got your pumpkins, I want you to turn your little blocky butt around and head back to spawn to get to a ravine, the dungeon, and the Abandoned Mine Shaft.
Now back at the spawn, just head around the corner and the ravine should be there.
EXPOSED ORES: 19 Coal Ores and 15 Iron Ores
Ravine Location: X: -85; Y: 68; Z: 297
Now, onto the REAL prize that you all came for; The Dungeon and Abandoned Mine Shaft. Now there are TWO ways you can get to both. Both ways lead to the same objective, but it depends on your playing style. I will walk you through both.
OPTION 1: Diggy Diggy Hole
Go to coordinates (X: -37; Z: 359) and make a 3x3 hole. Be sure to get the water out of the hole before excavating. Now all you have to do is dig downward until you hit cobblestone!
If you can't tell, it's a spider dungeon. If a mob cruncher thing is created, expect vast amounts of string for bows, fishing rods, and wool blocks.
Now, time for my favorite part, the LOOT!
- 8 Gunpowder
- 4 Wheat
- 3 Buckets
- 1 String
- 1 Cocoa Beans
- 2 Music Discs (Cat and 13)
Truly an amazing find.
OPTION 2: Go spelunking
It's pretty self explanatory. Just walk down the hole and make a left and you will come across the dungeon pretty quickly.
Stay tuned for Part II, where we go take a look inside the Abandoned Mine Shaft, both NPC Villages, the ravine within a ravine and even show you some beautiful eye candy.
Mar 2, 2011Posted in: TutorialsMod Installation Tutorial--For Beginners--
Since the other tutorial on this matter is riddled with insults and belittlement of other people, I decided to try to write my own based on my experience and what I know. I hope this is helpful, and any more equipped users can feel free to correct where it isn't.
Let me start by stating this tutorial is for WINDOWS. I don't know anything about Mac or Linux but I wouldn't object to someone posting a helpful tutorial on the thread. But I do have experience with Windows XP and Windows 7. (I assume Vista is similar enough o 7 that it will suffice for those who use Vista.)
Also, for clarity, installing mods does not involve the Mods and Texture Packs option on the Minecraft start menu. This feature is for texture packs exclusively.
So, you see a mod you like on the Minecraft site but you have no idea how to install it. You've never heard of a .jar file before, and you aren't sure what winRAR is because you've never used it. That's fine. If you've never had a use for these things, why would you know about them?
Well, now you have a use for them. So to start, download winRAR. You can get it here:
You'll need to install that. You just install it like every other program.
Now you'll need to find the Minecraft jar file. To do this, follow these instructions:
Open start menu
type in cmd (short for command. This will bring up the command prompt. That's the black box with white letters inside it.)
In the command prompt, type in “%appdata% and hit enter.
You should see a folder named “.minecraft”, open it.
Right-click the Minecraft.jar file (DO NOT DOUBLE-CLICK) and hover your mouse over “Open with”. (If this step doesn't work, try clicking on the jar file once and then right-clicking.)
Select winRAR o open the file.
Windows 7 (and possibly Vista)
Open start menu
Type %appdata% in the search bar at the bottom of the menu and hut enter
Open the file titled .minecraft
Open the bin file
Right-click the minecraft.jar file (DO NOT DOUBLE-CLICK) and hover your mouse over “open with”
Select winRAR to open the file.
I was also told this is an easy way to add mods for Vista, though some of these steps might also work for other Windows OS.
Quote from CheezDoodlez »http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1036&t=205295
1. Open your start meny
2. Type "appdata" in the search bar
3. Press Enter
4. Double-click Roaming, and then Open .Minecraft
1. Open a random folder
2. Click nest to the location text, so it becomes blue and you can edit it
3. Type %appdata% and press Enter
4. Double-click .minecraft
Now I'm going to explain some of this. The reason you don't double-click on the .jar file to open it is because, by default, it will open in java. That won't do you any good unless you know java and know what you're doing. Opening it in winRAR gives you easy access to the files.
Saving What Matters:
Now that you have access to the location of the jar, I recommend you back it up, but in my experience, this isn't usually needed unless you have previously installed mods that you don't feel like reinstalling. (For example, I do back up my jar file if I have the latest Optimine installed because I don't fee like being bothered with reinstalling it again.) If you have never successfully installed a mod before, don't even bother. You should, however, back up your save files, as outdate or otherwise broken mods might result in losing your entire world. The folder containing your saves is in the same place as the bin folder containing the minecraft.jar. Just copy that entire folder and plce it somewhere you can find it if you need to. (I just plunk mine on the desktop. Easy access. :V)
I'd like to take a bit of time to point out that mods are not supported by Mojang or its affiliates, and virtually every update to Minecraft will break your mods, so I strongly recommend backing up your saves. Mojang and Notch don't take any care in accommodating modders when it comes to updates. They update vanilla (standard) Minecraft, that's the product they offer, that's the product they support. User-made mods are rarely taken into consideration and thus, you use mods at your own risk and at the risk of your save games.
Before you start downloading the mods you want, you should read the first post. If nothing else, you should at least read the known bugs, installation, requirements, and, if posted, block Ids. (I generally ignore the changelog unless something was removed from a previous version and I want to know why.) You should be especially aware of the known bugs section, because this usually lists bugs the modder knows about and is either trying to fix or unable to fix. It can help you avoid problems with your game. It's also a good idea to read through the FAQ if you encounter any problems specific to the mod.
Some mods require other mods to function. In most cases, the more complex (and usually more popular) mods will involve ModLoader. There are two ModLoaders on the forums, but most people use Risugami's. (I think it's because it's an updated version of 303's.) Usually, the first post will link you to other mods required. If it doesn't, you can usually find the most often used mods on the One Stop Mod Shop thread posted in the Mapping & Modding section. (That thread is now closed due to the OP's lack of time to spend on Minecraft, apparently, but the list still has useful links if you need them.)
If you encounter such a mod, you should install ModLoader, or other required mods before installing the mod that requires them to avoid trouble.
But before you close that jar file and try out your mods, be sure to delete the META-INF folder. If you don't, your game will instantly black-screen on startup. If you forget to do this, just go open up the jar file again and delete it. No harm will be done.
To actually install your mods, you'll need to open the .zip file containing the mods. In addition to the instructions listed here, some mods come with a readme file, usually a plain text file (.txt) containing extra instructions about where to place certain files or folders. I suggest reading the readme file before placing the mods into your Minecraft.jar or you might break something.
I's Dotted and D's... Curved?
Remember when I said to be mindful of the block IDs? This is becaue if two mods use the same block ID, one mod is likely to break another, or you might black-screen. If this happens, you'll just have to pick one mod over the other and post a (polite!) request on the thread of the mod for the modder to try making their mod compatible with the other mod. (Sometimes, this just can't be done, even if a modder tries their hardest because some mods need the same class file to operate properly. I urge anyone reading this to try to be mindful of this, even though it can be a little disheartening at times.)
If something does go awry, there are a few things you can do about it. The first thing you should do is get a clean .jar file. You do this by deleting your minecraft.jar and then deleting the version file. Now just run Minecraft.exe again and it should redownload the files for you. If it doesn't, also delete a file titled md5c and try running Minecraft again.
Now, depending on the problem, you should do one of the following.
If one of your default items, or the item of another mod, isn't functioning properly, you should begin to reinstall the mods one at a time and try out each until you think you've found the one that has broken something, then get a clean jar file (By deleting the old one as per the steps above) and try the mod on its own (if it's broken a default item, such as a bucket) or try the mod with the mod that it seems to conflict with. If the mod is, indeed, breaking a default item and its default purpose (such as picking up lava), you need to report it on the thread. Make sure to post a constructive reply that details, in a preferably grammatically correct way (Or, if English isn't your first language and you struggle with it, as grammatically correct as you can manage), about what you experience when trying to do something the mod seems to have broken. But before you go posting your problem, it's a good idea to look on the Known Bugs (or Known Issues) page and see if the problem has already been reported before. If your problem is on that list, then the modder is already aware of it and likely trying to fix it when they can, in this case, you'll just have to be patient and wait for an update.
If the problem is with another mod, it's likely compatibility problems, in which case you should refer to the suggestions above, try to convince one of the modders to make their mod compatible with the other. Otherwise, you'll just have to choose one.
Like a Version~ Touched for the Very First Time~
If the problem is causing you to black screen every time you start Minecraft, and you've followed the instructions to the letter, it's time to go back to the modder's thread and look up which version your mod(s) are compatible with. If the thread doesn't say the mods are compatible with the latest version of Minecraft, they won't work. You'll just have to wait for a mod update.
You can check which version of Minecraft you have at the start screen in the top-left corner.
Covering Your Bases:
If your version is compatible with the mod you're trying to install, there could be a number of other reasons the mod isn't working properly. Make sure you have the mods the mod you're trying to use requires (Usually ModLoader), and make sure that you transferred all of the files from the folder you downloaded into the Minecraft jar. If you've done all this, it might be time to ask (Politely and as grammatically correct as you can!) for assistance on the thread.
If your Minecraft shows an error and a crash report, make sure you have the mods necessary for the mods you want to install to operate (ModLoader, usually), and if you've covered all your bases, it's time to post on the modder's thread. Make sure to include the crash report. Most modders won't even give you the time of day unless you post the crash report. This isn't to be mean, it's because it's hard for them to solve problems based on vague explanations like “Minecraft crashed” that could mean a hundred different things. The error report might look like mumbo-jumbo to you and me, but a modder is equipped to decipher it and pinpoint the problem for you (Given that modders usually know Java code and the error reports Minecraft gives you are usually related to Java.)
If you try to install a mod or delete the META-INF file and you're given this error:
Do the following:
-Press CTRL (control), ALT, and DEL (Delete) at the same time to bring up the Task Manager (That box that lists the programs currently running.)
-Near the top of the box, there should be tabs, one of which should be called "processes", click it.
-Look for a process called javaw.exe and highlight (click on) it.
-Click "stop" at the bottom of the box
-Press CTRL (Control), ALT, and DEL (Delete) at the same time. A list of five options should appear.
-Click the bottom option, which should be your Task Manager
-Look near the top of the box for tabs, one of which should say "processes", click on that.
-Look for a process called javaw.exe, now highlight (click on) it.
-Click "stop" at the bottom of the page.
(The instructions should be similar for Vista, unless I'm mistaken.)
Now try to modify your .jar file again.
(I actually encountered this problem when I first tried to mod Minecraft. I asked on this forum and another user gave me the answer. I would have never figured this out had I not asked because I didn't even know what to look for.)
If anyone does all of the following and still runs into trouble, I likely won't be able to help you. I've said all I know on this subject, and even when I follow these instructions to a T, I still run into problems and make mistakes. But I do hope this is helpful to anyone who would like a detailed tutorial.
Most modders copy/paste simple, short mod installation steps into their threads for all platforms. so if this long-winded tutorial confused you, and you'd just like a simple answer, you can likely find it in most of the reputable mod threads.
Thanks to thise who took the time to read this.
Jan 9, 2011Hello all, i see many people have been asking how to make a LAN or "Local Area Network" server. first let me explain what that is.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
a local area network minecraft server allows you to play minecraft with a friend without an online connection, though your friend needs to be with you (in real life). simple as that. Besides if you looked for this guide you must have a small understanding of local area network connections, if not...find a guide for that as well.
Anyway straight to it, i use a LAN server with friends because i dont seem to get lag as much or more often as were just connecting through a router. i couldnt find any guides online so after screwing around i found out how:
Step one: Get all the stuff you need- have the game, the server file, ETC. its self explanatory.
Step two: after you download the server file off minecraft.net , run it as a .exe file to create a server file(which is calle "server.Properties"), for me it goes to the desktop, but i've been told it can come up elsewhere. open it as a .txt and it should look like this:
#Minecraft server properties
#Sun Jan 09 11:00:38 AST 2011
the file uses True and false as "yes and no". you wont need to bother with server ip and port but you can change whether monsters spawn, animals, and most importantly online mode.
Note: hellworld set to true seems to make everyone spawn in hellworld, which isnt fun when you dont have anything on you.
The most important thing to do here is set online mode to false. and after you done configuring its should look like this:
#Minecraft server properties
#Sun Jan 09 11:00:38 AST 2011
level-name=Tablecraft LAN guide
i usually set pvp off but thats all preference. after you have that setup you can save and close it. Change the file BACK to a .Properties file so the server reads it. Now make sure you restart your server and "VIOLA!!" your lan server is online.
Step 3- Connecting to your server
Connecting to your own server is simple, its getting your buddies on it that gets difficult.
to get on your own server go to multiplayer (in the game duh!) and type in "Localhost" and you should get in quickly. this is for the person HOSTING the server not everyone. for everyone else, they will need to connect to your ip. who-ever is hosting the server will need to open the start menu and go to Programs-->Accesories-->Command prompt and click it. if it is not there you can run it by clicking RUN and typing "CMD.Exe" and if RUN is not there do a file search for it there should be a file for it somewhere on your computer.
When command prompt opens type in : IPCONFIG
it should generate more text in that text you will find an IPv4 address or IP address, it usually looks like "192.###.#.##" with the number signs as numbers, your friends will need to type this in when their minecraft asks what to connect to. in normal situations they will connect to you normally. when all your friends connect, commence minecrafting.
Enjoy the good times that lie ahead of you.
Extra server notes: the server self saves, which is handy and it saves to a folder called whatever your server name is where your server properties file was, i suggest not fooling with that or you will error whenever you login to your server if you messed it up.
Extra server note#2: the server saves usernames, so if you login as someone else on your computer who was previously logged on you will resume where they left off along with all they were carrying.
