    posted a message on Returning Player, What's new?

    Hi All,


    I have been away from minecraft for a few years, what's changed? Last I played was right when they added baby zombies and the three different types of stone. Are the old Mob grinder, Iron Golum Farms, and automatic chicken/cow cookers still viable? How has villager mechanics changed? are the trading machines still worth building? Anything new in enchanting?

    posted a message on What if a Zombie apocalypse happened in your world

    I think a more realistic zombie apocalypse mod would not despawn zombies during the day, just keep them as they are - and at night they move faster and hit harder. and any zombie that survives a whole minecraft day will spawn 2-4 more near him so larger packs can buildup if you're not actively hunting them.

    a way around that is to use a sticky piston design in place of droppers, like the ones used here

    Your best bet will be to use a zombie dungeon to get a couple of zombie villagers to cure.... I documented myself doing this in my Island adventures link down in my sig,,

    villagers also need to farm/trade to breed now, it no longer just goes off of how many doors you have,

    you would not need as beefy of a computer to run the server software as you do to run the game... check any old computers you, or friends and family have to see if they meet the server spec's - then you can set that one up with just operating system and server software; and have it running 24/7 on your lan.

    In the "my Island Adventure" thread ( link in my sig ), I document how I turned a zombie dungeon into a machine to produce the villagers I needed for my iron farm.

    you can use it clear out massive caves, then convert them to bases - or for mining. dig long tunnels, fill with tnt, light, collect resources that didn't get destroyed.

    posted a message on Creating A Server
    check to see if you (or friends, family) have any old computers lying around that can run the server software, then you can just keep it up and running on your home network 24/7... If you don't have an old one to use, you can probably build one for less then $150 with parts off of http://www.newegg.com

    posted a message on About to ban Minecraft at home - concerned parent
    there are servers that forbid such act's, They ban the players who do it and roll back the server so your stuff is returned - they don't actually prevent it from happening. best bet is to find one in the servers section of this forum.

    posted a message on How can I make Minecraft Survival more interesting?
    challenges are good, surviving on an Island did it for me sometime ago... island survival limits the type of resources you have available and forces you into new solving new problems. there is a link in my sig with my experiences.

    posted a message on How to outsmart your situation and thrive - a brief tutorial
    Sorry I didn't get around to replying to this sooner, I ended up getting involved with work and eveonline. I just recently got minecraft for the Xbone to play with friends and was looking through my old threads for inspiration and saw your request. So if it's not too late, I have uploaded the island in its current state.

    the villager trading machine I used was borked when they changed villager breeding. you can still trade with villagers and swap them out, but can't breed new ones... the iron golem farm and mob farm both seem to still be working - be careful in the mob trap though as it was built before child zombies were added and they can get out and chase after you. there is an end portal opened up somewhere, but I don't remember where it is.
