    posted a message on Can my gf and i play together in the same world?
    Quote from Mehrcraft»

    Or for the easiest solution, one account, one install, one character and just switch skin. Nothing else really changes.


    On a more extended note... When you load into a world in single-player mode, even if you are using a different account, you will login as same player. Meaning same inventory/location.

    But lets say you want to be off exploring a woodland mansion 8000 blocks away or in the End, while your GF wants to be working on a house at her base.


    If you want to each do your own thing in same world, you will need to set up a local server.

    You might need to do a bit of reading on how to properly set it up. You can either download 'vanilla' server software from minecraft.net, or you can get Spigot or CraftBukkit version. Once set up, you just need to click a desktop shortcut to start it.


    When either of you want to play MC, you first start the server. Then, you start MC launcher, login with your account, and at main menu, select 'multiplayer'. You need to provide your PC's local IP (use ipconfig) and server's port. Or you can use something like LANbroadaster add-on to make your server appear as a LAN world.

    As long as she creates her own MS account and buys her own copy of Minecraft, she should be able to login with it in the launcher and play whatever single-player worlds are on the PC. Later if you get another PC, you can open a single-player world to LAN and play together in same world at same time.

    posted a message on Double melons?

    In villages, piles of haybales/melons/pumpkins can be generated randomly. And yes, in those piles, they can be stacked. A savannah village will typically have 2-3 melon piles.

    Endermen can decide to teleport randomly without any damage. But you can always contain an enderman with a boat.

    posted a message on chainmail armor is to rare for it being not the best

    Chain armor is basically a curio, mostly fit for armor stands as a decorative item. And it is not rare at all. Armorer villagers commonly sell it in their apprentice and journeyman tiers.

    posted a message on how big is the new world when you use a seed?

    You always use a seed when making a new world. If you put nothing into seed window, game will pick a random one - you can then see what it is by using /seed command.

    Unless limited by some additional rules, potential world size is always as large as game engine can support.

    posted a message on Wait... what? "Because you own java you'll get bedrock as a bonus" legit?

    I took advantage of the promo on 3 accounts back I think, in 2018. Mainly cause Bedrock support for VR (Oculus) was much better integrated than using Vivecraft on Java.


    If they are resuming the promo, it feels a bit alarming. Would not be surprised if this is the beginning of a plan to phase Java version out entirely...

    posted a message on Almost everyone says this.

    Who cares about saving space? Minecraft has 60mil x 60mil x 380 blocks of space. I really couldn't care less if something takes up an extra block here or there or needs some air above it. I can always knock out a ceiling block if needed.


    My last three posts in this thread specifically state that chests save TIME - which for me is by far more important. Comprende? T-I-M-E.


    Double chests mean I can locate what I need with half the clicking, and a lot less moving.

    By 'decorative' I mean 'aesthetic', if the player is going for a certain look. I.e. barrels produce a great 'kitchen cabinets' look. But barrels and chests offer EXACTLY the same amount of storage per block occupied, but as above player posted, double chests placed sideways provide access to 2x storage within same amount of wall front.


    For me, the time factor is the most significant. Opening a container, I can determine at a glance if it contains what I am looking for, no matter if I am looking at 27 or 54 slots. So, checking 6 barrels will take about 2x time compared to 3 double chests.


    Personally, I find myself crafting barrels only when wanting fishermen in a village.

    Although material-wise, a barrel is a bit cheaper, chests are more time efficient.

    Crafting chests is way faster. Just take some planks and sweep around crafting table perimeter.

    When rifling through chests looking for something specific, double chests cut the search time almost in half.

    Surplus chests can be crafted into shulker boxes and hoppers, and attached to mules.


    Barrels primarily make sense for decorative purposes.

    posted a message on Does allocating more RAM to a mod pack make it run better?

    Depends mod to mod. I recall running it with J-map, JEI and Abyssalcraft. On 2GB, it would become a slideshow after a dimension switch (i.e. going to Nether). I upped it to 4GB and everything became peachy.

    posted a message on Possible flashlight recipe

    Dynamic light - such as creating area of light around a player who is holding a light source such as torch or lantern - is one thing. In fact, Optifine has that very option, and I always turn it off, cause it messes with my ability to tell if I need to place a torch in a given area.


    A flashlight that could be used to project a cone of light is actually very different and could be quite useful. Especially for new cave resource mining. With new 1.18, cave ceilings can get real tall and real dark, making ores in the ceiling hard to see. One can use NV potions but that again messes with one's ability to see which floor areas need lighting up.


    A flashlight that can briefly light up a distant area definitely has my support.

    Unless you have access to unbreakable blocks, your only option is secrecy. Obsidian can be broken even by hand, as long as one does not care about actually getting the block itself. A player who knows what they are doing can get into pretty much anywhere if they know where the goal is.

    posted a message on Copper Hopper Idea

    While Allay looks interesting, I can only imagine what kind of lag a large number of them would produce in a larger sorting install. And they still have to dump what they collect somewhere to be picked up by a hopper (and a hopper open to sky and checking for items above it is quite a resource hog, which is why it is usually recommended to place a full block over hoppers that do not need to grab items above them.

    I still think that primary Allay application would be not in sorting systems, but rather as item collection methods in farms as alternative to hopper minecart/hopper/water stream setups.

    If we ever get a hopper that does at least half of what 'Better Hoppers' mod does, I would be happy indeed.

    posted a message on Introducing - The 'Copper Hopper'

    I would rather see ANY hopper placeable in upside down manner when you aim it at underside of a block. A hopper facing up would not attempt to pull items from anywhere, and it would push items into container above it. Essentially like a dropper pointed up but not needing redstone pulses to do it.


    Oh, and I would love if hoppers could be crafted using copper ingots instead of iron.
