    posted a message on An Immense Underwater Minecraft World....
    This might be the largest underwater Minecraft world built in the console version of the game entirely in Survival mode and by a single person. It was built originally on the Xbox 360 version (starting in January 2014) and later imported to the Xbox One. On the Xbox 360 version of my world, there was not a single block of any kind above the water line (the seed was 98% water and I destroyed the remaining islands down the sea floor (they became part of my underwater buildings). When new players enter the world, they spawn on the ocean surface but immediately drop down into an underwater dome, so even the spawning effectively takes place underwater. This is not a world made up entirely of glass structures--the water is held back by glass blocks, glass panes, iron bars, wood fence posts, netherbrick fence posts, signs, ice, and ladders in different combinations as I experimented to determine all that is possible in underwater construction. The world contains some rather epic constructions, in my view (but of course I'm biased).

    We are certainly NOT closer than we've ever been. Minecraft was released on Xbox 360 on May 9, 2012 (the day my social life ended). At the time, it tracked Beta 1.6.6 on PC. Beta 1.6.6. was released on PC on May 31, 2011. At this point, the console version was less than a year behind the PC version.

    Flash forward to where we are now. The update to the Xbox One version released last week includes 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6, the latest (1.6) having been released in July 1, 2013. Yes, that's right, we are now more than 15 months behind the PC version.

    We have gone from less than 12 months behind to more than 15 months behind. We are not, as you say, "closer than we've ever been."

    Chicken jockeys didn't come along until the next update on PC, so I assume not (this update does not appear to have anything in it beyond 1.6).

    Caveat - you will only find them in dungeons located in chunks that have not yet generated (i.e., start digging in a part of the world you've never been to).

    At this point, only in dungeon chests, and only in those dungeon chests located in chunks that you've not yet explored (i.e., new terrain). In the next substantive update, you will be able to get them by fishing (rarely) and by trading (22 emeralds), but I don't believe they have incorporated that feature into this update, which corresponds only to 1.6 on the PC.

    posted a message on YOU CANNOT CRAFT HORSE ARMOUR IN SURVIVAL!!!
    There is an endless supply of Horse Armor in your world, even if you explored every inch. Here's how to find it:

    (1) Reset Nether

    (2) Enter Nether

    (3) Enter Nether Fortress

    (4) Walk around the inside passageways (i.e., passages where there is Netherbrick, not Netherrack, above you) until you come upon a chest (there are many many chests).

    (5) Open chests (you will find horse armor in at least a third of the chests)

    posted a message on Will There Be An Update To Increase World Size From Imported Xbox 360 Maps?
    It was originally reported that the world size would increase when you imported an Xbox 360 game save into the Xbox One version of the game. As we know, that ultimately did not happen. Does anyone know if that is still something being worked on by 4J Studios or is that no longer going to happen?
