    posted a message on What Is your Most Humiliating Moment In Minecraft?
    Mining with my fortune III diamond pickaxe, I came across a vein of dirt. I just dug straight through with my shovel, but I was mining it so fast that I didn't see the lava pool until it was too late. I swam back up to the surface and used my water bucket...ended up still stuck under lava-but now with an obsidian block between me and the surface.

    posted a message on THE MINECRAFT CHALLENGE LIST Revived! (with maps too!)
    Maybe put a short description after each challenge or map, so that people have an idea of which ones they'd like before they click all the links. Other than that, this is a great idea.

    Have you tried backing up the stats file somewhere else?

    snip


    The spoilers for tiers 2 and 3 as well as the spoiler for the video aren't working.

    edit: sorry, I didn't see that this had already been addressed on page 6. That'll teach me not to post before reading the whole thread! :P

    Awesome! I just started a world, and I'm going to try this challenge. The later stages might give me some trouble as I've never killed the enderdragon before, but we'll see how it goes!

    posted a message on Expert's Survival Guide to Minecraft
    The best place to build your home really depends on where are in the game. A base above the ground is safest since all the blocks connected to it are being placed by you, so you can light it up as you go. On the other hand, it's difficult to make in the early game. Underground is a good place to start, but you're vulnerable to creepers as you come up. One thing you didn't mention is underwater. Again, difficult for the early game, but completely safe from monster attacks.

    posted a message on How do I name my dog?
    In recent snapshots there have been nametags that can be found in chests in dungeons. You can rename these using an anvil, and right-click on any mob to give that mob the new name. This will also keep renamed hostile mobs from de-spawning. Wiki article: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Nametag If your server is running the latest snapshot, this could be the reason, in which case you just need to go looking for dungeons or find a friendly mod who will give you some.

    posted a message on Things that annoy you in minecraft
    LLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGG! My new laptop seems to be working better on that, though. Also, the fact that ghasts can shoot so far. You pretty much have to be on normal render distance to see them at the same time as they see you, and I tend to lag a lot at that point. I've died a few times by trying to fire blindly in the direction of the fireball and hitting a zombie pigman instead.

    posted a message on OCD things you do in minecraft?
    I don't do most of these things, but I always wait to eat until it is enough to exactly fill up my hunger bar, no more no less. That's one reason why I mostly use melons-it means I'm always regenerating health, instead of waiting for my hunger to go down to 2 and a half before eating like with some foods. Oh, and also:
    Quote from Drtro

    As for other things, not really OCD, I never use diamond tools. I'll make them but I will always stick with Iron as I never know when I may die or come upon some diamond again.

    I actually never use iron, either. I always use stone tools unless I'm mining something that requires iron.

    posted a message on Mushroom islands anyone?
    I actually used that seed for my very first minecraft world, but it was on my cousin's computer, so I didn't have access to it long enough to find the mushroom islands.

    posted a message on Pacifica, and New Pacifica City: What I have learned about living permanently underwater
    That's amazing! You've inspired me to make my own someday. I just had a couple questions:
    • in your section on sand miners you say that they'll need an aqua affinity shovel. Isn't that a helmet enchant?
    • Also, since sheep have to eat grass to re-grow their wool, do you ever have problems with sheep eating all the available grass before it re-grows, forcing you to collect more with a silk touch tool?

    According to the wiki, you can get acheivements in any game mode. I think this means that you can start a new world in creative mode and get all the acheivements you need and they'll carry over to your other worlds. Here's the wiki page: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Achievements

    I wouldn't mind bats as an atmospheric mob if their constant noises weren't so annoying.

    posted a message on My survival world has 2 end portal in it.
    I've always wondered, though, do the three end portals take you to the same spot in the end, or are the terminuses spaced out just like the entrances?

    posted a message on So I enchanted my first level 30 pick....
    I would trade with villager priests for enchanted books so that you know what you're getting beforehand. It could take a few trades before they offer anything good, but you can always recoup the emeralds by trading with other villagers.
