    I am sure there will be a mod to "Make Villagers Great Again" if this update goes live.


    I will be using it.

    posted a message on I hate the end!

    Take a stack of wood into the end. One wood stack = 8 stacks of wooden slabs, enough for a 500-block bridge, and if you place them as bottom slabs, no endermen spawn on them. I mean sure, getting a portal over a tiny island significantly away from larger areas sucks, but manageable.


    Another option, you can always go for the EnderDragon respawn, maybe second portal will be positioned better.

    posted a message on Are we really gonna pretend Wardens are a well developed addition to the game?

    Deep dark usually generates only under mountains. And outside of ancient cities, is probably the safest biome there is, since mobs don't spawn there. Shriekers are usually far apart and easy to spot. And if there are a couple close to each other, you isolate one with wool while taking the other out. You got to be a total fumbler to get a Warden in regular deep dark.

    Bring a hoe and you can rack up some crazy xp clearing the skulk. As a bonus, as ores have lower chance to generate exposed to air, being under skulk they aren't exposed to air, so you are more likely to find diamonds clearing skulk in deep dark than by regular caving.


    Turning subtitles on, if you do trigger a shrieker, you know which 'strike' you are on. You see 'Warden draws close', means you got to be extra careful next 10 min or so.


    Even ancient cities are not that hard. With a stack of wool, you can eliminate most shriekers easily.

    You can complain to server owner that another player is abusing admin rights.


    If server owner listens and takes their admin rights away, good.

    If server owner does not care/buddies with cheater etc... you seriously don't want to stay on that server.

    Until you actually talk to someone or at least observe their actions for a while, their skin is really your only insight into their personality.


    So yeah, skins definitely influence how players are perceived.

    posted a message on Is it possible that a new adult villager can rob other villager's job site? (farmer villager)

    A villager will normally not take a job station claimed by another villager. However, a villager can lose claim to their job site if he cannot pathfind to it. Most common cause is being stuck inside the house while a door is blocked by other villager. Or station is inside a house and door is blocked.


    Things one can do:

    Add a few more doors to houses so villagers can get in and out easier.

    Move all beds and work stations outdoors (or into a single large building).

    Lock villagers up in cubbyholes so they can't move far from their stations.

    Provide a whole bunch of spare stations - i.e. barrels or composters. Unemployed villagers latch onto those.


    The problem of course is if a developed villager loses their station, they can't refresh their trades. So if you say, see a master farmer wandering about and tgeir composter manned by a novice, consider:

    Capture farmer in boat, take the boat to their former composter. Break composter, break boat, put composter back. Needless to say, this must be done during villager work time.

    posted a message on Question about account migration regarding having two copies

    Well, if it gives you the option, take it. Have a friend/relative supply MS account info on which they can get Minecraft for free.

    posted a message on Question about account migration regarding having two copies

    Ok, if you never actually paid for Bedrock separately:

    Quite sure that when one claimed that free Bedrock copy, it associated their Mojang account with the MS account used. When one later migrated their Mojang account, it would automatically migrate it to that MS account.


    I had 4 Mojang accounts in the family, and I claimed Bedrock edition on all of them (on 4 separate MS accounts) when the offer was up in 2019. When I got the prompts to migrate, I do not remember it giving me an option to choose destination accounts. For each Mojang account, it just pulled up the corresponding MS account used for Bedrock claim.


    If you migrate your Mojang account now, it will basically just disappear.


    So, to go over timeline:

    Sep 2017 and before: one created a Mojang account, bought Java Microsoft there, and needed to be logged into their Mojang account to play it.


    Sep 2017: Bedrock released. At this point, one could buy it under an existing Microsoft account. If they also happened to own a Java edition under a Mojang account, those were separate accounts/separate games.


    Oct 2018: Free bedrock offer comes around for Java players. To claim their free Bedrock copy, one needed to provide a Microsoft account that did not own a copy of Bedrock already. At this point, it still was separate. One could be logged into their Mojang account and play Java version, at the same time someone else could be logged into the claiming Microsoft account on another PC and play the Bedrock version there.


    April 2020: Free Bedrock offer ends.


    October 2020: Mojang announces migration of accounts is to take place in near future.


    Sometime early 2021: Mojang-to-Microsoft account migration begins. Now this is one part I am not entirely certain about. Potential cases:

    • People who did NOT claim the free offer and who did not have a copy of Bedrock on an MS account, and only had the Java version: Those were prompted to supply a Microsoft account, and after migrating, they could use it to play Java, but not Bedrock.
    • People who claimed the offer: for those, migration process automatically pulled up the MS account used to make the claim. I don't remember there being an option to choose another account. After migrating, one could play either Bedrock or Java from that login, but lost the ability to play Java and Bedrock from different PCs at same time.
    • People who bought Bedrock directly in 2017-18 and did not claim the free offer. Those were definitely given the option to choose a destination account, but wonder if they could use one with Bedrock on it, and got any warnings about it. Anyone who migrated a Mojang account into an MS account with independently-bought Bedrock, pretty much screwed themselves over.

    March 2022: Migration becomes mandatory. Mojang accounts can no longer be used to play the Java version. You have to login at Minecraft.net and migrate to an MS account.


    June 2022: Minecraft becomes a single Java+Bedrock bundle product, no longer bought separate. Any MS accounts that previously had only one of the versions, now get access to both.


    Sep 19, 2023: The announced deadline to migrate one's Mojang account. After that, all unmigrated accounts are deleted.

    posted a message on Question about account migration regarding having two copies

    Ok, so lets get that straight.

    1. You originally had a Mojang account under which you bought Minecraft Java.


    2. At some point you bought Minecraft Bedrock from Windows store, while logged into your Microsoft account. It could be same username/email as your Mojang account, but those are separate accounts. Just like you can have Apple and Amazon accounts with same ID/email.


    3. You are saying when MS was offering Bedrock free to any Java owner, you took the offer. This is where it gets a bit murky. You CANNOT have 2 copies of same game under one MS account. When redeeming that Bedrock offer, you needed to supply a Microsoft account that did NOT have Bedrock on it yet. Different email/username. If you tried to claim it with your existing MS account, you likely just did not realize that the claim failed. I vaguely recall the process, did it on 4 accounts. You needed to click that claim button on the website, then it prompted you to log onto an MS account if you were not yet. Then MC Bedroock was flagged 'bought' in Windows store.


    4. Sometime in 2022, MS made the offer again-this time both ways. If you logged into MC launcher with your MS account that used to have just Bedrock, then you could also download and play Java version on it.


    If that is the situation, then yeah, you should be able to migrate your old Mojang account still - you will need to create a different MS account under different email for that.

    You don't make much sense there. Same username = same account. Is it on a different email?


    Sounds like you bought Java edition on the same account where you already had Win10 one.

    Do be careful if you are way out exploring. If you sleep, then break the bed and take it with you, if you were to die somehow, you will respawn at initial world spawn.


    Could be quite a trip to get your stuff back.

    posted a message on How many villagers needed to spawn 2 iron golems in java?

    That's in Bedrock.


    In Java, the requirement is either 5 villagers gossiping (and not detected a golem in last 30 sec), or 3 villagers panicking at the sight of zombie.

    posted a message on Horrifying music disc??

    Only '13', 'cat' and 'otherside' can generate inside Overworld dungeon chests in Java. A couple others (II think 'stand' and 'mellohi') can be in chests on Bedrock, but definitely not 11.


    So either OP has some mod installed that adds more stuff to dungeon chests, or the disc was just lying there on the floor after a skeleton shot a creeper.

    posted a message on Please help, account problems

    You can't login into a Mojang account anymore, period. Even if you had a proper password. Which is why get nothing when trying to request a password reset. At least not via Minecraft launcher. You COULD try logging in on https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/login


    I also recommend going here: https://help.minecraft.net/hc/en-us

    When I get open that page, I get a chat prompt popup in lower right corner. Maybe you can get an actual human to help that way.
