    posted a message on villager reproduction
    I recently built a mountian village. I carted in 2 villagers to live there. After several minceaft days there are 3 or 4 hundred in four houses on the western edge of town. The hearts are still flying too. Lag is becoming an issue now. I don't want to kill them off, Any ideas how I can get these bugger's spread out? And why are they continuing to reproduce?

    posted a message on NPC Village Population problem
    The tunnels will not count. I have tried that. To help keep you villagers safe build a couple houses with front yards. Fence in the front or back yard. With a gate and walkway. Move a pair of villagers with minecarts into the yard with the house in the middle. Just make sure the fence is far enough away from the house to keep the npcs from jumping over the fence. Put lots of torches around to keep monster spawn away. Build a couple of those and some unfenced houses. Other npcs may have a tendency to stay near the houses with front yards and trapped npcs. I even give them a pet. They seem to like a chicken or cow to socialize with. These fenced houseslso makes it easier to slaughter zombies as they line up along the fence trying to get the npcs. This works pretty well and keeps npcs safer.

    A tower attached to a house helps as well. Two or three will stay up there away from the mobs

    posted a message on abandoned villages
    Over the last couple of months I have built a couple of villages on my single player world. I stocked both with a few villagers (moved by minecart from my city). There were a couple hundered villagers between the two villages along with several iron golems. I went through both a day ago. Both villages are now empty. I have been playing on peaceful mode while I build my towns. Will villagers de-spawn? On the latest version? All caves in the area are sealed up. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    posted a message on cave villagers
    Oh crap! Exploring a cave system under my village, and found a small group of villagers at lava level. I know what can happen with villages roaming below ground. Should I try to get this group to the surface or toast them with lava?

    posted a message on What difficulty do you play on?
    I play on normal when I want to kill hostiles, and easy while I am working on my city. That way I can build through the nights without getting interrupted by mobs.

    They do this with me all the time too. I just make them sit at the next closest village or base. That way they will not be pushing me off a ledge or into lava.

    I have finally figured out how to make a city that will not become mostly empty after a few mincraft days.

    posted a message on [URGENT] How do I move/transport villagers over large distances?
    Yes tracks and minecarts. Six full stacks of iron will give you over 1000 pieces of track. Time to get some ore.
