    posted a message on using pointed dripstone to get a bucket of lava

    i used to put a pointed dripstone on a block of cobblestone surounded by cobblestone and put a bucket of lava there. then after a bit the reservour would fill up and i could get anothwr bucket of lava. so i could have a lava veed by my home. now i am on the latest version of preview and i can't get it to work now. went to the wiki and could not figure what i am doing wrong. any clues? thanks

    posted a message on i came intro a room with vivid blue dots on the face of the blocks.

    so this is interesting. i have to learn about the warrden. i was setting up a place to hunt for daimonds. i dig a sixteen block square and then dig across every three blocks. then go down three blocks and do it again. however there were lots of iron blocks in there and i also found an amythyst room in one corner of my project. sheesh. now i have found the deep dark that i was looking for for a long time. at least i have lots of iron to protect me...

    posted a message on Does the game have too many structures now? Should it aim to focus itself around structures or not? (Poll)

    i don't understand the discussion about structures. are they more prevalent in new maps? if i am playing a map while the upgrades to new versions are going on, do the upgrades add new structures in parts of the map i havent discovered yet? i didn't know you could get diamond stuff in the villages. i don't understand villages much but i will try to discover more there. so if you have to buy then you have to have emeralds and to get them you have to farm or do other things like paper and coal. that takes time and by then my village is unpopulated. haven't figured out how to repopulate the village. is a ruined portal the ones with a chest and a gold block? i guess i have too much learning to do to comment on too many structures...

    usually i can find diamond with strip mining. i dig 16x16 three deep at y-54. then cross it 3 crosses apart. usually get 2 to 5 diamond. then if no lava go to y-59 and complete the 16x16 pattern. i usually use stone picks with an iron to dig the valuable ore. slow process but effective.


    did my mining exercice and results were 4 diamond but not on my planned 16x16 pattern. one of the corners of the pattern hit a plethora of iron. ended up with 150 iron and 3 blocks of iron and found the diamond getting the iron interspersed with tuff. 12 gold and redstone were also found. i think i have enough iron to tackle the woodland mansion.

    i am keeping up to date with the updates. i am playing xbox x but an older map. i assume the new features will be active now. however did they take away the diamonds? i found a woodland mansion so i want to explore it. i have dug down in two sites to -54 level and am trying to find diamonds. none so far. i am finding gold, redstone, iron and lazuli but no diamond.

    posted a message on Minecart can't be split anymore?

    i don't know how i qualify myself. never been to the nether, like to change worlds as soon as a new version comes out. play lot on thr beta versions but now i am playing standard 1.19.10 on xbox one. the world i have now is very interesting. spawned in ice and snow with no trees and i don't use the chest to start so i had to find a place. i'm playing hard mode so the polar bears are a problem when they have a cub also. that was in minecraft preview. i got some wood, dug into the snow and made a home. there is a town near but haven't stole anything yet from them. i dug down to 14, got iron and dug down to -39 and found a mineshaft. that mineshaft was incredible and found 8 rail chests and two chests by a spawner.

    i decided then to switch back to regular minecraft, version 1.19.10. found the key for the preview, 4555815317740323764, and tried it. same spawn in hard mode in ice on a mountain. went and made a home in regular trees and no ice close to the area with the place for the mineshaft. then went and made home at same place where the mineshaft was. strange now, the mineshaft was at +39 instead of -39. both mineshafts have not had any enemies except for the green slime. don't know why that is yet. havent explored much but found 4 rail chests and a spawner with two spiders with not much exploring the mineshaft yet. i am keeping track of the locations with the chests and leaving them unless i find seeds and then i have a place for seeds at the base above. have some chickens there for food also. i don't know how to compare the world to TMC's world but seems to be fun so far.

    i jus use them as is. i have to put a piece of rail before i put the cart/chest there. outdoors it is funny because an animal can move it.

    posted a message on how do you delete an old world when you are playing minecraft preview.

    i am playing on the xbox one so i dont have the launcher. i will try the suggestion though. i did go to storage and delete the worlds that way but when i booted up they were back there again. so i tried it. it works on regular xbox but minecraft preview it deletes the games for that instant. when i reboot the xbox the games come back. i have ten games now. one would not refresh and it is just a dead game i guess.

    i can delete the old worlds and i think they are gone but the next day i power up the xbox one and the old worlds are still there. i am sure they are uploaded to the cloud somewhere. my nephew makes a lot of worlds and i want to get rid of them.

    posted a message on What do you do when you lose all your stuff?

    are you just starting a world or been playing the world for a couple of years? i like to store rock and wood in every place to recover. even stone tools will help you geet going, even if you are going back to the place you lost it all. i lose it all frequently because i usually don't have armor. iron is hard to come by but i found out the mountains have lots of iron so i might change my methods.
