    posted a message on Do You Use Fast Or Fancy Graphics
    I use fast except when cutting trees so I can see the logs that are hidden by the leaves. I hate having floating clusters of leaves, so I always take every log out of the area so they disappear.

    posted a message on Wierd map bug, or am I making a nooby mistake?
    A few facts for future reference: Youtube tutorials can be very useful, and I commend you for using them rather than staying a noob forever. I would recommend using the wiki, however, because it's usually more comprehensive and up-to-date.

    I usually just use an un-enchanted stone sword. It might not always drop, but it's more adventurous than something that only takes a couple hits to kill them. If I go after every enderman I see, there's a good chance that I'll have enough pearls by the time I'm ready for the end.

    posted a message on Barrier (The Invisible Bedrock)
    I feel like having it only available through /give or nbt editing means that it's not much easier to get than the half-iron doors that people are currently using. I see this idea as a more accessible way to achieve the same ends, but it's not that much more accessible. Making it easier to obtain isn't a perfect solution either-I feel like it should be hard to get like command blocks, though I'm not sure why I feel that. Regardless, you get partial support from me, because the underlying concept is sound.

    posted a message on Vanilla Lava Tank Tutorial
    This is really cool, and a lot better than my idea of storing it under my base with only a floor of glass between it and my precious chests. I realized this was a bad idea when a creeper got in...On topic, is there a way to wire up a dropper as well so you can choose whether to have it output a source block or a bucket of lava in case you don't have any buckets with you? I know this would reduce capacity in the long run, but it would be helpful in the short-term.

    Ohgodohgodohgod as I beat it to death with a block of dirt.

    posted a message on [1.7 Challenge] The Ravine of Doom
    Sounds interesting! I don't plan on playing 1.7 until the official release, so I hope the seed still works then. It seems like even with the mineshaft for free rails, you're going to have to find a lot of iron in order to build your rail line out. Not that I mind-it sounds like a fun long-term project not unlike the underwater base challenge: a limited time to gather above-ground resources before cutting yourself off from the surface.
    By the way, another good suggestion would be to try to push some animals into your waterfall before you enter the ravine so you have a good food supply, and maybe a source of leather if you can get some cows.

    posted a message on Premium Accounts
    Some of my friends have cracked copies and they aren't able to upgrade past 1.5.2 for some reason. Maybe they aren't trying hard enough, but it gets annoying that we can't upgrade the server that we share.

    posted a message on What to do with an end portal block
    Sorry for the confusion you guys, but it actually is an end portal frame block. Crafterguy, you're right, I'd need 11 more to do anything useful with it. I'm just looking for ideas on what decorative uses it would be good for.

    posted a message on What to do with an end portal block
    Some of the guys in my dorm recently started a survival server, and I was on when the admin decided to start derping around with the /give command. He started inputting random block IDs, and I ended up with a lily pad and two wooden half-slabs. I told him to stop abusing his powers, so he decided to try just once more...and gave me an end portal block. I plan to destroy the other items, but the end portal is too good an opportunity to waste. I was thinking about using it to decorate the top of the tower I plan on building, but I'll only have one opportunity to use it, since it's impossible to break once it's been placed. What do you think I should do with it?

    posted a message on Problem with 1.7 Biome update
    I feel like this is somewhat true for all updates. Jungles, horses, chests and nether quartz in the nether, you would have to reset your map or explore new areas to get any of those new additions. I don't see why this is any different.

    posted a message on Need Help For Iron Farm
    Can you build DocM's farm with more floors? He shows 2 towers of 2 floors each, but could you build each of those towers with 3 or 4 floors? Or do the villages need more space between them than is available with the height limit?

    posted a message on Dyed armor acting as "camouflage"
    Just edited the OP to add a few good ideas and make some old ones clearer
    A summary:
    • Clarified what visibility actually entails (I hope. If it still isn't clear, let me know!)
    • Iron and gold now leaves visibility at the current default. Leather and no armor would decrease it, and diamond would slightly increase it.
    • Added editable tooltips for armor, so that custom maps like Super Craft Bros wouldn't be affected.
    Thanks for all the feedback. Keep it up!

    posted a message on Vanilla Based Boss Mechanic Ideas
    I don't know much about it myself, but there are some pretty good youtube videos of other boss fights in vanilla. I've got a few here for you:
    Blaze Boss fight by hypixel:

    evil santa boss fight by FVDisco:

    Evil bunny boss fight by FVDisco:

    Again, I don't know much about how these mechanics work, but if you watch a couple of let's plays and download the map to get a good look at the wiring you should get an idea. Hope this helped!
