Jul 9, 2012goldbefound posted a message on [1.4.4] [FREE MONEY] Stormcraft - (Arenas) (Classes) (24/7) (Legit) (40 Slots)This server is amazing. Lots of fun stuff to do and a great community. You can often find large groups of people fighting together in the mob arena or playing spleef. On stormcraft you never run out of things to do. We have lots of nice people who will take you in, give you food, tools, and a roof over your head. The best part of stormcraft is how close the community is, you will rarely log in without someone saying "Hi! welcome back!". We all know each other in game. If you join stormcraft you will meet people and and most likely make a friend or two. Something else I would like to add is stormcraft is the only server I have played on for longer than a week without getting bored.Posted in: PC Servers
Stormcraft is great so why not stop on by...tell em webguy sent you!
Dec 5, 2011my houses are always deep underground. it would also be great to build it in the nether because people dont like to live in the nether and would not expect anyone to have a full time base. only come to the overworld when you need food or resources. another tip for when you make your base is to make it out of basic meterial luxury is not importand. i would also put away some supplies incase your house gets found and raided. lastly if your going to make a house in the overworld make it above ground and make it look like it was griefed and already striped of important items then make a hidden door that leads to your real basePosted in: Survival Mode

This isn't a really complicated topic, but it's worth discussing a little. There's a lot of information in the equipment list too. Bring logs, not planks. Diamond tools, only one bucket of each liquid, making everything you can as you go so it isn't taking up space until you run out. The only important factor that hasn't been explained is taking the time to smelt iron once you have more than two stacks. At that point, you're guaranteed to save an inventory slot after smelting metals and converting to blocks. You'll also want to convert lapis to blocks.
Using cobblestone as dead-end markers will also save you inventory space. If you aren't out to mine much coal or redstone, you can use those tricks to spend afternoons down there without running out of space. But if you are out to mine all the minerals you see, you might want a mini-base.
If you need to travel far for caves and you want to bring back everything in them, you might want to construct a base within the cave. An ideal spot has plenty of room but few entrances.
In the forward base, you probably want to place a bed. Much better than writing down the coordinates of the entrance and running for your stuff across the overworld. Aside from the obvious furnaces and chests, you might want to set up a small farm or two. Wheat, melons, potatoes, and carrots are all good. Carrots are unique in that they can be planted directly in their edible state, saving inventory space. Melons and mushrooms are poor choices, but they can be found underground if you're running out of food.
If you're in for the REALLY long haul, or you think you might die and lose all your wood, bring a sapling (not pine, pine sucks for farming) and read this article. If you plan on using a tree farm, look for a place with a lot of headroom for your base. Ditto with a bonemeal-based mushroom farm.
FINDING GOOD CAVES
If you're playing the current version of Minecraft, all you need to do to find good caves is find a cave, usually. The newest terrain generator makes great caves everywhere. But I actually wish there were fewer caves. It used to be that you could completely explore a system. Now, caves seem to make up an infinite network and I never get that satisfaction of finishing one off.
Sailing at Night
You wouldn't think hanging around the ocean at night would be a good way to find caves, but it is, especially for mineshafts. The ocean is much easier to look through when it's dark out. Look for collapsed sand. If you're sailing in shallow water, you might actually hear the water flowing into the cave. If there's light coming from it, you've probably spotted a mineshaft. See weird blocks of air scattered through the water? It's a bug that occurs above mineshafts. Just remember that caves under ocean without much nearby land will be have more monsters because there is nowhere else to spawn.
Eyes and ears
I keep my ears open for cave noises, flowing water, and monster calls. Headphones, good stereo, or surround sound will make it easier to pinpoint where the monster is. When you're in a cave and you think you have it explored but hear monsters, dig for them. Remember that there is no way to tell by ear if they are above or below you. This is a good way to find dungeons. They are usually quite noisy.
Simple enough. Dig deep and start a branch mine on lava level (F3 will read 11 for X at the right elevation), and listen for cave sounds, monsters, or the sound of water or lava. Or just dig straight into one by accident. That happens often enough, and the systems you find this way are usually very deep and rich.
Mapping Utilities Don't know of any good ones for the current version, sorry
I used to use Cartograph G, but last time I checked, it wasn't updated for the newest update. Not sure if it works. But anyway, if you can find a mapping program with a cave mode, you can compare the cave images with a surface image of the same area, and find unique systems that way.

Btw, minecraft is a game to have fun on. I have fun on it. Its a hobby, just because i like it doesnt mean i cant enjoy real life.
Apr 3, 2012Posted in: Survival ModeQuote from laYahooz
I disagree with you on that bows don't matter much. In my experiences, enchanted bows are the best first hit. Which means I usually hit my opponent straight on with a fully charged bow, then beat them with my sword.
Yeah. The topic poster forgot to include an attack strategy that could win you numerous fights. Sneak and use the bow at the same time while making sure you stay behind cover so you can't be seen such as trees, steep hills, dark caves, etc. And make sure you stay a considerable distance from your target because even if you are using sneak, they will still easily be able to spot you up close. (15 blocks) Make sure you are at least 2 chunks away; preferably 3 so it gives you time to run.
A good thing to remember is that you should avoid a conflict in Hardcore PVP servers whenever possible. The combat relies heavily on connection, and having a fast clicking finger. Giving yourself time to run from a diamond armored foe will save you grief in the long run.
Geurilla warfare is the best in Minecraft. (personal experience) When a diamond armor foe sees you, the first thing he will do is chase you like a barbarian. Don't give him a head start. If you have potions, get to high ground and wait for him to start climbing. If you splash poison in his face he will start running like an Ocelet. So that's why you always have to make sure you catch him in a place where he cant get out so easily.
Apr 3, 2012The title says it all. There are a lot of aspects to pvp, but there are 2 main aspects. Gear and PVP itself. I'll start with gear.Posted in: Survival Mode
Okay, so the first thing you need is gear. Depending on the server, you'll often be facing people in standard iron armor or heavily enchanted diamond armor. Learn what you'll need, and bring the correct gear accordingly. The trick is balancing deadliness and price (in time or resources) for the stuff you're using.
Weapons- Use a sword. Sharpness and fire aspect help with damage. Fire aspect is best, it caps at II, which means longer burning. Sharpness increases damage by about 1 heart per hit, so higher levels are preferred. The max you'll get here is sharp IV fire II, but sharp V is possible. Knockback may be nice with fire aspect, due to the fact that your enemy will burn during the time spent getting back to you. Fire aspect also stops enemies from running, as it stops their sprint when they take damage. Always enchant weapons for 1 enchantment level when going to PVP, you're almost guaranteed to get sharpness 1, which can make a big difference. Using bows can work, but I don’t recommend it for most servers. Generally, combat will be mostly (if not all) melee - ranged, so just use a sword. However, if you do intend on using a bow, at least use power 1, it makes a big difference.
Armor - A simple choice, but it does matter. Iron or diamond. I’m not going to tell you what to use, depending on the server figure out what works for you. Enchantments are a bit more complicated. For pvp, you’ll only want protection. Protection 1 is common at level 1, so if you don’t have lots of xp that’s probably the way to go. If you do have a lot, try higher levels for protection 3 or 4. It’s very effective, however, the armor breaks a lot faster. I wouldn’t recommend enchanting higher than prot 1 on iron, it would be a waste. Protection also prevents against fall damage and potion damage.
Potions- This section depends severely on your server. Get a feel for the environment, and try pvp a few times. If people are using potions, then listen up. If not, don’t worry. First off, the strength potion. It gives you 3 hearts of extra damage per hit. It makes a huge difference. I’d recommend using this in every fight you can. Instant damage and Instant health are tougher to make, but if you can make them, bring them. They do make a difference. If you’re stacking your bar full of potions, bring at least one poison. Whether to go for glowstone or redstoned posion is your call. Depends on the length of the battle. The length of the potion should match that of the battle. A couple other underused but effective potions are speed, slowness, and weakness. Speed and slowness help if you expect that your opponent will run, and weakness will reduce the damage they do slightly. Both help. Fire resistance is okay if you expect fire aspect, but not really needed.
The situation of the battle makes a huge difference, but I have to assume here it’s a standard pvp environment. Study your opponents. What armor do they wear? What do other players think of them? These can help you greatly. Don’t start a fight you can’t win. Watch out in case you get ganked and are attacked by multiple people. If you’re running, you may be out of luck. You’ve got two options while running: a. Regroup, and try to fight again, or b. Keep running. If you have no chance, keep running. Your attacker can cut corners and you probably don’t have a chance. However, you can eat your food and regen to full health and try to attack again if you think you have a chance.
The Actual PVP-
This is where it gets good. First, find your opponent. Either agree to fight or sneak up on them. When you first attack, make sure you sprint at them. Then, jump and hit them to guarantee a critical hit. Go to the left or the right of them and try to hit them from behind. This won’t always work, but when it does it’s worth it. Continue attacking. Here, continue jumping for crits and block between attacks by alternating the right and left click buttons. Stay on target. If you’re about to die, your opponent probably is too. Either keep attacking or run. Your call. Use potions either toward the beginning or end of your fight. In the middle, it could cause you to take too many unneeded hits.
If your server uses mcmmo or allows for food to instantly heal you, this is what you should be concerned about.
Mcmmo- This is a special combat plugin. The abilities can do a lot of damage, so use them. If you want, bring an axe to use the ability by right clicking. This will do for a short amount of time a ton of damage. Quickly switch back to your sword unless you have high axes skill. This applies to any combat skills. If you have any very high skills, use the weapon pertaining to that skill.
Food instant heal - There aren’t many of these, but they are a lot of fun. Make sure to quickly switch between your weapon and food while you fight. If you run or are knocked back, it may be a good idea to quickly switch it out with many other food items that you bring with you.
That’s it for now. If you have a certain server that you find troubling with pvp feel free to link it and I can give you some tips, or I’ll write it in a section here.
Also, I heard there was a list of the best minecraft pvpers at minecon. I was wondering if anyone had a picture or a list of it. It's not for me, I think a friend might be on there.
Mar 3, 2012I was showing my buddy Minecraft for the first time. I decided to show him why you don't go out at night, so I wandered out after the sun went down.Posted in: Survival Mode
I was walking along a cliff, when a pair of skeletons appeared. They shot at me, narrowly missing, when a spider tackled me off the cliff.
Luckily, I landed in water, then beat the spider to death with my bare hands.
Drenched in the blood of my foe, I scaled the cliff at a place that was near my base. Of course, there was a creeper at the top.
I tried to fight it off, but to no avail. It blowed up, sending my plummeting, yet again, into the icy waters below me.
Finally, bedraggled and starving to death, I clawed my way to the top and found my way home.
And that, children, is why you don't go out at night.
