Aug 17, 2012Nice, I've been waiting for more hard features to switch to hard, normally I play normal. To me, a hard mode where enemies just deal more damage isn't really harder, its just annoying. But with hard mode having things more challenging with features I'll actually make the switch. Plus I hate limited fire, it just leaves random floating leaf blocks everywhere that are hard to remove.Posted in: Future Updates

How is that a bit much? Terrain saving all the time might be considered a bit much, and I can't believe storing the player's inventory could be any more expensive than saving the terrain (which includes the inventories of chests, as they are blocks.)
Pressing escape is the perfect time because that's when a player has just finished messing with their inventory or are pausing the game.
Well it's not bad or anything, but it does mean that anytime you do want to exit, you're saving your inventory twice. Which isn't a big deal, and I'd prefer it to our current setup, but I think the best way would just be a save button.
Jun 19, 2012At one point long ago the inventory saved anytime you pressed Escape. That was a bit much, but it might be nice if there was a Save button in the Esc menu, so that you could intentionally save without having to exit the world.Posted in: Discussion
Jun 17, 2012As others have said, most important thing is for the limit of 3 strongholds to be removed. While there's a limit of 3, any other updates would be useless to many people since no new strongholds would generate with proposed new features. There's just so many reasons the limit is terrible, especially given that everything else in the game is unlimited and can be generated in new lands.Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots
I also really want strongholds to reach all the way to the surface, either by just being so big that they reach the surface, or by having a vertical mineshaft with ladders and some ruins at the top.
This would make finding them not such a huge pain, and would add more features to the game that span from the underground to the surface. The only other features like this are emeralds spawning only under extreme hills, and water color being different even underground under swamps, and technically grass being different colors under different biomes, tho that's not likely to ever happen naturally.
Biome specific strongholds might be nice too, tho that might be accomplished just by increasing the size of new structures like the jungle ruin to span into the underground as a labrynth.
But again, the most important improvement to strongholds would be making them infinite.
Jun 6, 2012To date, the only thing added to minecraft that requires a new world has been Strongholds, and by extension, the End, and by extension of that, the Ender Dragon, Dragon Egg, and Endstone. This is due to a ridiculous limit of 3 Strongholds all generated within 1km of spawn in a nearly infinite world (so if you've already generated all the land within 1km of spawn they have nowhere to generate).Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots
If the new features aren't available in already generated lands, just walk out further and any new features will generate in new lands. So long as the new update has nothing to do with Strongholds you will be able to get all the benefits.

I want more biome specific underground features, especially ores, so that it gives a reason to explore underground in different areas (and gives a reason to make new mines in remote places).
At present, all underground is the same no matter where you go, making the underground generally boring due to sameness.
May 20, 20121. PickaxePosted in: Survival Mode
3. Axe (if I'm above ground) / Better Pickaxe (if I'm below ground, for use on important resources)
4. Torches (this is also what I keep equiped when I'm not doing something specific)
7. Bucket of water / Shears (if I'm above ground near sheep)
9. Empty / Cobblestone / Block I'm currently building with
6, 7, and 8 are the first to be switched out if I need space for more blocks to build with or for other reasons
That's my standard setup, tho I change it depending on situation.
Mar 9, 2012I've made a 4x2 jungle mega tree farm, and so far it beats out all other types of tree farms for lumber, but not for apples (none) and saplings (only a 50% extra over materials needed to replant). Here's a picture of the 8 mega trees I cut down and replant:Posted in: Survival Mode
The 2 large and 1 small jungle trees on the right edge of the picture aren't part of the farm, I leave those.
I cut down all 8 of the large 4x2 group of trees (8 mega jungle trees total), and on average I end up with between 40 and 64 saplings.
It's 4 saplings to replant each of the 8 trees, so 32 total. I don't use the 1 jungle plus 3 other system, since then you need bonemeal too and I prefer natural growth, and given how quickly they grow on their own it's not an issue timewise.
That leaves me with enough saplings for 3-8 new trees usually.
I will say that I still find that's not enough. With birch trees I usually get so many saplings that I'll be able to replant many times more than I cut down, so that making new forests is much easier.
For instance, I've been trying to make a group of jungle mega trees reach the new sky limit, using my 4x2 tree farm as a source of saplings to keep growing the trees on top of the others, as in this picture:
But often I'll only get enough for 3 or 4 new mega trees, meaning I have to clear my entire tree farm again just to add 1/4 of a level. Really slow going work.
On the plus side, I've gotten so much lumber I filled a double chest full of lumber and am now working on filling another one heh.
Mar 1, 2012I have a world from alpha and the jungles generated in newly generated land there. You just have to explore new lands in the same world, just like most other changes.Posted in: 1.1 Update Discussion
The only thing to date that doesn't generate on old worlds are strongholds because of the ridiculous limit of 3 all within 1km of spawn, so they can't generate in new lands if you ever explored much at all.
Nov 30, 2011To avoid this problem, we need the biome data for an area to be stored in the save, not determined by the current generator.Posted in: 1.0 Update Discussion
That way, even if the terrain generator changes, such that where there used to be a desert would now be snowlands, that it would stay a desert because the biome data for that area would already be written and saved in the save data.
Nov 29, 2011I want beaches and improved underwater geology, but I don't think reverting to the old generator is a solution.Posted in: Suggestions
I'd like to see sandy beaches and gravel beaches become ocean adjacent biomes with other interesting features like shipwrecks and palm trees to make them more atmospheric.
I like all the clay in oceans and swamp water now, makes collecting it more interesting and gives more of a purpose to the aqua affinity and respiration enchantments.
Nov 24, 2011I probably only have about 20 stacks of coal stored in a chest, and maybe 50-100 furnaces with anywhere between 8-64 coal in each throughout my world.Posted in: Survival Mode
I have used a ton of coal tho, I literally place trails of torches everywhere I go and I am paranoid about monsters spawning so I place torches everywhere.
Besides mining coal I also make efficient birch tree farms everywhere I go so I can make tons of charcoal. Tree farms are one of the first things I setup in a new base because whenever I make a base I blanket the entire nearby landscape with torches.
The fuel I have stored up the most of though is Blaze rods, I have nearly 2 double chests filled with stacks of Blaze rods, and those cook 50% more items than coal. I mainly use my blaze rods for powering my netherbase furnaces.
