    Quote from TheMasterCaver»

    IMO, this doesn't really change much; consider that the armor that I wear only provides a bit over a third of the maximum protection you can get; a diamond chestplate and leggings each with Protection IV and Feather Falling IV boots, which reduces damage by an average of 77.6% and lets you take an average of 44.6 hearts of damage before dying. By comparison, the maximum protection you can get, with Protection IV on full diamond armor, averages 92%, letting you take 125 hearts of damage before dying - that's an increase of 2.8-fold, or able to offset a reduction in real health to just 3.5 hearts! This would mainly affect how much fall damage I can take since it is already maxed out with the armor I wear.

    In fact, even if I switched to Hard (I play on Normal), which increases mob damage by up to 50% (due to the damage calculation this depends on damage dealt; zombies deal 3 damage on Normal and 4 on Hard, a 33% increase, while creepers go from 49 to 73, a 49% increase), armor would still be able to nearly offset both and for this reason I see little point in playing on Hard; zombies breaking wooden doors is more of an annoyance than difficulty, as are cave spiders that poison you for twice as long instead of giving you Poison II. I've even modded the game so Hard-only effects like spiders with potion effects occur on Normal.

    For another perspective, full diamond armor offers twice as much protection as full iron, so going from iron to diamond (both unenchanted) is all that is needed to offset half the health or increasing difficulty from Easy to Normal or even Hard (zombies deal 2 damage on Easy, half that on Hard).

    In other words, you might want to add some rule regarding armor.

    Ah, okay. Thanks for the suggestion! I think I'll add a rule saying no diamond armor. Does that sound good?

    posted a message on The Five-Heart Challenge: Survive in any world with half the health

    Hey guys. I hope I'm not posting in the wrong forum, but I've come up with an interesting little challenge idea for surviving in a new world.

    This is basically a way to play Minecraft Survival Mode that makes it twice as easy to die.

    Challenge Rules:

    • No enabling the keep-inventory cheat
    • No switching to Creative mode
    • BACKUP your world(s) before attempting to set up this challenge!! I am not responsible if your worlds get corrupted or messed up.
    • NEW RULE: No equipping diamond armor!

    Recommended Guidelines:

    • Difficulty: Easy/Normal/Hard (Hardcore mode would be ridiculous, but feel free to do so with a world seed)
    • DON'T enable cheats for the world!
    • Keep "Generate Structures" enabled!
    • Use Default world generator, OR Amplified if your computer can handle it
    • Try not to let your armor meter go any higher than 5 whole units. This means you shouldn't wear, for example, a full suit of iron armor. (even though the picture above shows 7.5 units of armor protection)


    1. If you're going to resume an existing world with this challenge, MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!! If you don't know how to back up worlds, look up how to do it manually on Google or use something like the Curse Client, I guess.
    2. If you're going to start a new world with this challenge, create the world (I'd recommend inputting a world seed, personally), then close Minecraft.
    3. Download NBTExplorer (Google it or something). Once you have it, open the folder for your world (not the backup, but the original). Then, navigate to playerdata > [your UUID] > Attributes > [the first one], and change the Base tag for the generic.maxHealth to 10 (the default is 20). Also, change the Health and HealF tags to 10 as well.

    4. Change the same tags (generic.maxHealth, Health, HealF) under level.dat > Data > Player. Then, click the Save button at the top of the window (or go to File > Save, or press Ctrl+S).
    5. Launch Minecraft, and load your world. If all was done correctly, you should have only 5 hearts of health.

    Have fun!! :)

    posted a message on Looking for friends to play Minecraft Windows 10 Edition with!
    This thread is irrelevant now. I am no longer accepting friend requests to play Minecraft Bedrock anymore.
    Hey guys! It's been a long while since I made a post on the Minecraft Forums, so please be nice.
    I'm looking for more friends to play Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition with, so I figured I'd post here to find new friends. My GamerTag is YoshiOG1. To add me as a friend:
    1. Go to Start, and click on the Xbox app. If you don't see the Xbox app, click "All apps" and find it.
    2. Click on the search bar that says "Find people" and type my GamerTag (YoshiOG1). Hit Enter.
    3. My icon should show Master Chief from the Halo series. Then click "Add Friend". (Optional) Also, please tell me your GamerTag, so I know that the friend requests I'm getting are from you guys.

    I'd prefer to become friends with people 13 or older, but I guess I shouldn't discriminate, so whatever. Also, I'm currently only able to play the game in a virtual machine, so until I get a better computer of my own with Windows 10, my game doesn't get the best FPS. (But it's actually playable!) UPDATE: I upgraded my main computer to Windows 10, so now I can play at a smooth 60 FPS!
    Also, my Timezone is Eastern Time (USA), in case you guys were wondering. I'm typically awake from noon to midnight.
    Here's a picture of my skin in-game as of November 20, 2015.

    posted a message on testfor arrows on fire?
    Sorry if this is considered necroposting, but I think this is actually possible with a /fill clock, which is a clock that sends a redstone pulse every tick. This kind of clock works only in Minecraft 1.8, though.

    1) There are two dummy scoreboard objectives you need to make: one for the arrow's inGround data tag, and another for the Fire tag.
    First command: /scoreboard objectives add inGround dummy
    Second command: /scoreboard objectives add FlameArrow dummy

    2) Command Blocks for setting inGround scores for arrows: (this is so that you can do /execute as arrows with a specific inGround tag)
    /scoreboard players set @e[type=Arrow] inGround 1 {inGround:1b}
    /scoreboard players set @e[type=Arrow] inGround 0 {inGround:0b}

    3) Command Blocks for setting FlameArrow scores:
    /scoreboard players set @e[type=Arrow] FlameArrow 1 {Fire:1999s}
    /scoreboard players set @e[type=Arrow] FlameArrow 0 {Fire:0s}

    4) Now, if you want to select flame arrows that are in the air, put this in your command in place of @e:

    For example, here's a command that will make flame arrows create a trail of flame particles:
    /execute @e[type=Arrow,score_inGround=0,score_FlameArrow_min=1] ~ ~ ~ /particle flame ~ ~ ~ 0 0 0 0.01 9

    See this text on Dragnoz's PasteBin for the commands to make the fill clock (it needs to be pointing towards negative Z, I think)

    I hope this helps! :) (I might post a video soon on my YT channel)

    3. No being mean.
    4. If you're being mean or annoying non-stop, you may get kicked or temporarily banned.
    5. Some hacks are allowed, but only to a certain extent.

    posted a message on Custom Block Models in 14w06b
    Sorry if this is considered necroposting, but...

    In case anyone was wondering, the cobweb block's model is called cross.json. Just thought I'd share that with you guys.
    I made the cobweb in my resource pack with randomOffsetX, randomOffsetY, and randomOffsetZ all set to true, but I have yet to draw my own cobweb texture...

    posted a message on Still Confused About the New Skin System?
    EDIT: It seems to be working fine now... :\

    I have a problem with my skin. Everything appears to be fine, except for my left arm (not the sleeve, but the arm).Here's the skin I uploaded:I thought I put the texture of the left arm where it's supposed to be, but no matter how long I wait and restart Minecraft 14w05a...
    I don't understand why it still isn't showing my left arm. Did I draw it wrong? Or is it still stuck showing my previously uploaded skin, which I forgot to put it in...

    posted a message on | 1.7.4 | SURVIVAL | AURORA CRAFT | AC | FRIENDLY | PVP | NEED STAFF

    I would like to apply for admin/mod on this server. I used to run a server of my own, which was called YOG1Craft, and I hated griefers. But then my old computer broke, and I really missed my friends. I would like to become a moderator or have special permissions so that I can relive those days of running a server, because my parents won't let me run a server on this new computer, and I can't afford to get my own server run by someone else.
    I swear from the bottom of my heart that I will never grief or do anything awful to this server. In fact, if you don't trust me, then you can ban me if you'd like.

    My IGN is YoshiOG1.

    Also, is this an acceptable format for an application?

    Update this mod please!!!!!

    I wish someone would update this mod, because I would love to make a screenshot of a mushroom biome into an MPO stereo image to be displayed on my Nintendo 3DS.
    We need a good mod developer to at least make this mod compatible with current versions of Minecraft.

    posted a message on [1.4.5] Mushroom Biome seed! Discovered by me!


    Hello, everyone!
    Today, I discovered a seed that spawns you right next to a Mushroom Island!!

    The seed is gamccorm (all lowercase).
    Gamccorm is the username of my friend on my Minecraft server. He's an admin, so don't mess with him.


    When you create the world, you should spawn on a beach beside a jungle. Turn left, and you should see a mushroom biome if you have your render distance to Normal or Far. If you can't see it due to your render distance being set to Short or Tiny, just swim there.

    Here are some pictures:
