    the green lace was in a lush cave. almost got lost exploring it but it was adjacent to an amethyst cave. got attacked by two zombies. then going back found three diamonds in part of the cave. that was at level -27. got to stock up on food and torches and go back down..


    i think a new chunk develops when you settle there. i moved from spawning point to a new home. there a zombie dropped a carrot and now i have food for pigs. from there i went east and when daylight was almost gone, i dug in and made a bed and slept. then the next day i wanted to explore. within a hundred clicks i found a shipwreck. now how can that be. i think that shipwreck developed because i slept there. very strange to me.

    I found them starting at around 10, but after that they were all below zero. I found a massive cheese cave system that I almost go lost in.


    are you finding diamonds in the caves? i have found none yet. i found a spaghetti cave at -19 and dug around there but no dimonds. i did find green lace hanging down but ran out of torches so i am going back to find out what is going on there. i did find 12 iron so i can use an iron pick now.

    I still found 30 diamonds though so no complaints. Iron is also rather hard if you don't have any caves on the right level for it.


    what is the level you found the diamonds on.

    traded a clock and iron leggings for a carrot. finally traveled to find some iron. it was tough at my spawning point to find iron. i needed iron to make my map and protect myself but it was hard. i managed to get chest and leggings and a map but nothing else. world was level with many pools of lava on the surface. when i spawned there was a couple of trees on fire already. now at a new home i am looking for iron. haven't found a village yet but this new place is next to a hill. can't call it a mountain yet but will try to find iron up there if i can't find it digging. found a large cave at level 30. i am having trouble staying alive. even attacted by a skeleton riding a spider. died right away. but a zombie dropped a carrot when he died. that was a blessing. planted carrot and now i will try to make a fishing pole with a carrot to ride a pig. never done that yet in minecraft. hopefully i can ride back to my spawning point and plant carrots there. and working on making a secure place at level 30 to start exploring the cave.

    Bedrock Edition 1.17.10 – Official Minecraft Wiki (fandom.com) you can see the changes in the standard bedrock for ps4. there are further updates for the xbox but i don't know if they are for ps4. i think though on the ps4 you can chose caves and cliffs to modify the game. you can get infor on the mobs on my link clicking on the game.

    i am searching for iron to get some armor. not much to be found so far but looking for the level to find some. i went down to level -10 and found a cave but haven't been able to explore it because of getting killed by the skeletons and little zombies. and coal is scarce. you need lots of wood to make charcoal.

    i am on day 17 and still cannot find any sheep. i would like to make a bed and get some rest. when i go traveling to find sheep i have to sit in a bunker untill daybreak and then travel again. i have seen one chicken but no cattle, pigs or sheep. i am in forest but travel to taiga, tropical, and others that are close to me. and i can't find redstone yet. i dug down to -10 and got into a huge cave but no redstone yet. i want to make a clock and map. i guess it is challenging. i have lots of food. watermelon and wheat and beets. found a chest with beetroot seeds. thats a good find. now i need pigs...


    i wish the goats could be sheared for wool. that should be possible because in the real world they are sheared

    i think that is what is happening. i have a second folder. so take that folder out and put it at one higher level in the versions folder? will try that.


    i finally have json file but when i play the game it is still 1.17.1 by the name of the game. maybe that is what it is supposed to be.

    i must be doing it right but it shows 1.17.1. started a new game now and it is raining and i like the rain better than the old version so it must be working.

    yes, and then i did the new installation on the installations page. on game directory i browse to the folder 1_18_experimental-snapshot-1. right below 1.17-pre4. i see on the version line it lists latest release (1.17.1) but when i click on server it tries to download server.jar but the compute blocks it because this type of file can harm your device. maybe that is a problem or not. i don't know. the file in the game directory is correct for 1.18. then i click on create and it has <unnamed installation> and below that 1.17.1.

    when i followed the instructions to install it, it shows up as 1.17.1 as a new world. and it does not go deeper than level 4 as before. how can i verify i am playing the 1_18 snapshot? thanks

    the wandering trader was up the first morning with the 1.18 update. however, laddered down to level 14. mineshaft was there so i was able to get a couple of strings and get my fishing rod to get food. that was a blessing. however the creeper explosion messed up the environment. half the mineshaft was intact. gonna look for diamonds.


    the mineshaft is full of spawners. at least i think. i have defeated one spider spawner, i know where the next spider spawner is, i found a lot of spiderwebs so that probably means another spider spawner and i think i see one way down a hallway, blocked it off but haven't been down it to confirm it yet. bedrock is at level 4 so this snapshot is not deep. just one diamond so far. died a dozen times but going to get full iron armor. i need to figure out food. fish are ok but i am going to put corral for cattle. that might make my food supply better.

    posted a message on Should I Be Concerned About The 1.17 Ore Generation Bug?
    Quote from Hypeman92»

    I’m kinda confused about this whole bug that effects diamond generation. Will this highly effect my ability to find diamonds? I’m also confused if this bug applied to bedrock or java edition. If this bug does apply to Java edition then I’ll try to get onto 1.17.1 as soon as possible and reset as many of my 1.17 chunks as I can so that Diamond generation can get back to normal.


    here is what i have found on diamonds on 1.17.1 release. i started a new world, normal, with spare chest. dug down to level 11. got sidetracked with mineshaft to explore at level 40 but then went down to level 11. i take an iron pick and dig a tunnel till the pick is done. then get another iron pick and go to the end of my tunnel and dig a square five blocks to both sides of the tunnel. take any ores like redstone, gold, coal, copper, lapis or diamond that i see. then move back 3 or 4 blocks and dig five blocks to each side, continuing till i get back to my base where the ladder to the top is. the first tunnel did not yield any diamond but plenty of other ores. the second tunnel was south of the ladder, the first was to the east. usually they are about 75 blocks long. the second tunnel was good. found 16 diamonds. then the third tunnel was to the north from the ladder. i got 12 diamonds on that tunnel. the time doing this is 17 days per the f3 key but i have been making a map and trying to start a farm to keep alive with bread. hope this gives you an idea hypeman92.

    i'm old enough to have Alzheimer's instead of old timers. I should have used skeleton instead of scarecrows. sorry. and it took me a couple of dats to figure it out.
