    posted a message on Phantoms not spawning!

    Not sleeping for 3 days and it being night are only two of the four conditions required for phantoms to spawn. The other two conditions are that the player must be above sea level (y=64) and the player must have a clear view of the sky (no blocks over your head). Hope that helps.

    posted a message on "Failed to synchronize registry data, closing connection" Error

    It's ok, I had added about 5 mods to the pack myself, and I just removed those and it finally worked. I don't understand why it threw that error because those mods I added myself were the same version between computers, I double checked. But I can go without 5 extra mods. Thanks for trying to help me.

    posted a message on How to make wither skeletons spawn again?

    Wither skeletons can only spawn in the "box" of the nether fortress. There's mods out there that let you see this box, but it basically only consists of inside the fortress and on the exposed bridges. My guess is that by you adding all that extra cobblestone outside of that box, zombie pigmen are spawning there and taking up the mob spawning cap, preventing the spawning of skeletons in/on the fortress.

    posted a message on "Failed to synchronize registry data, closing connection" Error

    My sibling and I are trying to play a mod pack on a LAN server together via Twitch, but we keep getting the "Failed to synchronize registry data, closing connection" error. We've never gotten this error before when we've played other packs, and from what I can tell this error primarily results when there is a discrepancy between the versions of mods in the client and host. However, I've double and triple checked that all the mods are the same version, Forge is the same version, and Java is the same version. Any ideas? I can give logs if needed but I'll need a little help on how to get it.

    In theory that would work, but there are definitely solutions that are much more simple and cost-efficient. For example off the top of my head, just make loads of pickaxes and have a dispenser on a timer ready to give you a new one by the time the previous one breaks.

    I'm not sure about a Mac, but the launcher should now be downloaded in a file called "downloads" or something along those lines. Just open it up to run Minecraft. And of course you can also put a shortcut on your desktop.

    posted a message on Please calm my nerves (question about updating worlds)

    As long as the gap between versions isn't large (for instance, 1.12 to 1.14) and the new version doesn't SPECIFICALLY say anything about changes to world generation, biomes and the terrain should be fine. Usually the only thing affected by small jumps in versions are redstone contraptions, and maybe mob spawner rooms.


    1.14 has been known to be very laggy, but I'm sure they will iron that out upon release.

    posted a message on SHORT - What server would you be interested in playing?

    I really like a highly competitive economy server where rare things fetch a high price but building materials are still easily obtainable. Unfortunately, the two I used to play on have pretty much died.

    posted a message on Building Advice

    My advice? Literally just copy something you find cool off the internet. I myself am normally such a bad builder that I need some sort of template to work off of so I'm past the point of being guilty for using someone else's work. Besides, I normally add my own personal touches after I get the basic framework of the building made. For instance, check out the pic attached. The largest building in that pic, my town hall, I actually found a picture of one the internet and then copied it by hand, block by block. It can also be used as a large house, if you wanna use it too.

    posted a message on How do you guys have fun in Minecraft today?

    Believe me, I used to play on two different servers about 5 or 6 years ago that also had 300+ at any given time but now struggle to get 25. I also built some really amazing things on them over the years. My top tip: all servers die, all games die. What I like to do is when I see that the time comes, I take screenshots of all my builds and I also try to get the contact information of people I became partial towards. At least you can move on as a community that way.


    Other than that I really just play modded packs w/ quests nowadays. I was always a Minecraft loner, but I just enjoy grinding away for hours on end in some of the tough ones. Try some of those packs with friends though.

    posted a message on Where does your skin originate?

    I found mine on the Skindex years and years ago under the tag "steampunk" but I gave it my own personal backstory. I'm an elvish engineer, which is not typical given that dwarves are normally the engineers in every RPG.

    posted a message on Steam?

    I'm sorry it's so complicated :(


    Most games these days have controller support but Java Minecraft is fairly old in the grand scheme of things and I suppose they never felt it was necessary to do the work to add it.


    The only thing I can do now to help is try to guide you from where you are. It's great that you added the game to Steam and launched Steam in big picture mode. I looked into it some more and found where the settings you need to change are.


    Once in big picture mode, click the cog in the upper right and then click on "controller settings" and then enable the checkbox that says "xbox configuration support" (or ps4 if you prefer). Next, while still in big picture mode, go to your game library and click on Minecraft. Then, on the left panel, there should be another cog that says "manage game". Once you click it, then click "controller configuration". From here, you need to map the actions to specific buttons. For instance, map what would normally be left click on a mouse to be the right trigger on the controller. You can also map WASD to each of the directional inputs on the control stick.


    I hope you eventually get it to work. It is a pain because there's no native controller support but most games have it so it's not usually this big of a problem.

    posted a message on Steam?

    Hi! I commented on your original thread. Steam isn't in any way associated with Minecraft, but now that you mention it I did see a video once that demonstrated using Steam to play Minecraft.


    Steam is essentially a digital video game marketplace, in fact the largest and has been for quiet some time. It also contains a library of all the games you purchase on it, which makes finding and launching them easy.


    According to the video I saw, if you download the Steam desktop app, make an account, click the library tab at the top, you should then see a button on the bottom left that says "add a game". Click it, and then you have to browse your files to locate the .exe application that is Minecraft (literally says Minecraft.exe). If you need help finding it, right click the Minecraft shortcut on your desktop and click "open file location".


    After adding Minecraft as a game to Steam, you need to open Steam in "big picture mode" which you can do in the top right. Then, plug in your controller and Steam should automatically detect it. The only problem from here is that since PC Minecraft wasn't meant to be played with a controller, you have to go into the settings and map each action to the button on the controller yourself. I'm not sure I can easily guide you with that so you'll have to find it on your own.


    Again, I don't know if this method even works and since you're not even familiar with Steam, you're much better off just getting used to playing with a mouse and keyboard. It's not that difficult, just keep your left hand on WASD to move and your right on the mouse. Left click mines and right click places.


    I hope if you can't get the controller to work properly it won't dissuade you from playing the PC version (which is superior by all accounts). Good luck! And thank you for your service in the Navy.

    posted a message on New to PC

    I don't know if PC Minecraft even supports controllers to be honest, but if it does it is super simple to set up (I'm also assuming that ps4 controllers work the same way as xbox ones but if they don't then sorry).


    If it isn't a wired controller I don't know how to set those up either.


    If you DO have a wired controller, or at least a spare USB cable to plug into the controller, plug your controller directly into any USB port on your computer. Usually with most games it automatically detects that your preferred input is a controller but like I said I don't even know if Minecraft supports controllers.


    If this doesn't work you'll just have to do some deep Googling as someone else said.

    posted a message on How much do you all terraform?

    Most of my bases are usually underground, so I suppose digging it out counts. One time however I was playing on a Towny server, and I completely flattened a 250X250 block mountainous area. It took a few days, but eff. 5 and two other players helping made it seem not so bad. Here's what I built on that land, until the server eventually lost its playerbase.
