Take X, Z coordinates in the real world of first portal.
Go through portal on peaceful with a diamond pickaxe.
Destroy the portal you came in through.
Travel to X/8, Z/8, and build your new portal in the nether there.
(That is, coordinates in real world divided by 8)
Repeat for each portal you make and there will be 0 portal rerouting difficulties caused by portals generated in the nether being placed imprecisely by the game.

Borrowed from post by NZpheonix, link above:
Diamond Pickaxe = 14.4 diamond/hour, 240 iron/hour
Iron Pickaxe = 28.8 diamond/hour, 72 iron/hour
Stone Pickaxe = 19.2 diamond/hour, 120 iron/hour
In summary, hunting diamond with iron picks gets twice as much diamond than if you used a diamond pick.
Hunting iron with a diamond pick gets twice as much arion as with a stone pick.
Depending on patience and how many resources you need, mining with pure stone isn't that bad of a choice.
Apr 23, 2011Posted in: SuggestionsQuote from deathguardian97 »Hasn't this already been suggested? I recall seeing banners for it.
I've never seen this suggestion before. I love it! Be nice if Mojang added this but hey, a this would be worth installing a mod for as well. It would make slimes more popular than dogs most likely (at least they never bite back even if they are a little pushier).
Apr 23, 2011redpine posted a message on For the love of...SAFE SPAWNING! (Revised and updated.)Posted in: SuggestionsQuote from DoubleDongle »What's the seed of that map where you get swept into lava?
We want that seed.
Btw, the best suggestion so far is a "safe zone" where mobs can't enter immediately around the spawn point.
Apr 23, 2011Dissapearing blocks have been suggested, but not blocks that dissapear only in sunlight. A decent idea I suppose, but inflexible - what if I want a room that appears/dissapears in response to redstone, lightstone exposure, or something else similar?Posted in: Suggestions
Starchart is cool but useless unless we get seasons/star signs affecting mobs/weather/etc.
Apr 23, 2011@ gemstones: don't get rid of the current diamond.Posted in: Suggestions
@ stained glass: only if one gem = a full STACK of glass stained
@ transmitters: cool, but another solution would be mirrors/laser/solar panel - which would solve some lighting and engineering difficulties.
Apr 23, 2011redpine posted a message on The C-Booster: instant max momentum, teleporter, force fieldPosted in: Survival ModeOr we could just use powered rails?... Just a thought
Boosters don't allow teleportation that is faster than boat clicking, which is faster than tracks. Also, if boat clicking gets fixed, this may remain as the fastest method of transportation rivalling even minecarts.
Boosters don't allow force fields, much less hidden ones at bedrock ]:wink.gif:
Quote from randosity42 »yea using powered tracks makes it even more powerful. I mad a booster, and added 50+ carst into it...the whole chunk is effed up, when I place minecarts in that chunks they dissapear, until I place a couple more and they all reapear and slide along the ground into the distance, its really bizare
That said I may use mostly boost tracks on any world I care about...
Apr 23, 2011Posted in: Survival ModeQuote from hiloser12221 »i dont quite like it. too much cobble ruins buildings IMO
Needs more cobble, I think. Place is way to poorly lit to have that many colorful blocks. How about putting cobble/wood/sandstone stairs as the "ceiling" to hide lightstone?
Apr 23, 2011I remember back before Halo 2 came out. Based on surprisingly little information, surprisingly large threads and well-spelled megaposts about the plot came out. Everything and anything was taken note of - for example, hunters bellies look a little like worms and glow even after they die (implying each hunter is a hive organism, and is still "alive" after death).Posted in: Survival Mode
That is the kind of "background" I'd like to see in minecraft. Where little, everyday things become meaningful if you care to take notice. Here are the little details that we have so far in minecraft:
Netherack and soulsand have creeper faces
Ghasts and creepers having the same drop of sulfer
Pigs struck by lightning become pigmen
The Nether is accessed by lighting cooled lava on fire
Both netherack and cobblestone have a north pointing "L"
The player is the first human (as world is completely untouched and apocalypse free)
Mobs come out at night
Mobs try to kill player
And that... is it. 8 interesting details from which to draw speculations about the nature of minecraft. I am against an official "plot" but a more colorful "background" and more interesting yet uninformative "clues" would be appreciated - after the addition of a more stable SMP, optional non modded greifing protection, pistons , etc.
Apr 23, 2011Like any survival challenge, once you have a base and wheat/pig farm surviving and mining is easy.Posted in: Survival Mode
What would be hard is if you had to the hunger mod and mushrooms and cooked pork from pigmen were the only food sources. That would mean you would have to A) travel on the surface where ghasts are or :cool.gif: find ways to kill pigmen with just a sword and/or lava bucket safely.
My nitpicking aside, your playstile is harder than the casual minecrafter uses.
Apr 23, 2011Take your surface coords, divide X and Z by 8, and travel to that spot. You should find yourself at your portal - worked for me at any rate. I built 4 fully functional sets of portals without a problem by assuming dividing my surface coords by 8 would give me the right nether coords.Posted in: Survival Mode
Apr 19, 2011Spiders were intented to make webs after all. Still, I would prefer the "hanging thread" spider trap instead of the "web" spider trap. Hanging threads are threads hanging from floor to ceiling. If you get caught in one a spider yoinks you off the ground and tries to bite you. I see it a lot in nature videos.Posted in: Suggestions

OH! These could become bushes. GOD how I want bushes...
Saplings are ugly, they should look like the small trees in the OP pictures.
