    posted a message on What do you do to Villages when you find them?

    i just look around and leave them alone. i check the chests for something i need but i usually have nothing that i want. i do like to find cartographers to get maps. they are hard to find. one time the pillagers were raiding and i finally deleted that town and started a new survival game in hard mode. chas

    posted a message on is there anyway to tell on a new game if a mine is there to be found?

    i like to start new hard survival games to learn. sometimes i can find the mines with minecarts and tunnels and chests sometimes. then sometimes i can't find one. usually i can find them when i dig down close to my creation point. like when i create a new game with bamboo forest as the place there is a mine at the same point in every new game. i think there is another game using the seed picker that has a mine. is there anyway in starting a new game to tell if there is a mine and where it's at? just curious. thanks, chas

    posted a message on finally a little success with bees

    i learned you can generate a beehive by planting oak or birch saplings. i like the birch because i can harvest them easily and they look nice when i build a house. you can see it a long ways away. the first nest i had i read you were supposed to put a blanket over the fire to keep the smoke from the bees. that is a bad thing. first, it takes a while to get a beehive. the info said 5% chance when the sapling grows if it is within two meters of a flower. wrong. my experience says less than that on this game but maybe i am wrong. i must have planted 50 trees to get a hive and then destroy it on the first day. sad. then i tried for another one. my chest has many stacks of birch before i got my second beehive. this time i am not messing with the first hive. i had a beehive i created when i ruined the first one. i put it on another birch and then made bee babies and they went to the second hive. now i know how to get the wax to make new hives and lots of honey. that is a lot of fun succeeding playing hard survival trying to keep away from the creepers. chas

    i am really having problems creating beehives. i have did it several times but randomly. i don't know what the 'y' level is for the best beehive creation place. i sometimes play a new map every day and delete all the old ones. just experimenting with the game play. chas.

    one block high. i got my bees finallly. then they died after stinging me. i think using the carpet over the campfire was a bad thing. now i am trying to grow a birch tree to try again. i can only get the beehive on y=62. so far no beehives on any other birch tree. birch are best because they don't have all the other growth that an oak tree has. chas

    posted a message on Moving from Windows version to Java version - tips requested

    cave spiders are ok with me if you use iron or diamond sword. if you find a bunch of them with a spawner, i did that once, restrict how they can get to you with blocks so they have one block to move through to attack. then keep moving in on them bit by bit and you can beat them. otherwise, i attack them right away if i have health


    villages have no chests sometimes. and no people to boot.


    i play maybe a new game each day. i play hard with no map and no chest. makes it a little harder. i might die a couple times the first two days. important to get iron and now that new games have lots of caves to start with. thats a good place to get iron. iron sword and sheers are most important. try new games often to learn the java.


    i like fishing but have to kill the spiders first. lucky when i get line the first couple of days. some time the b ites are fast. chas
