    posted a message on Challenge - Tree Spirit
    Decided to try this and went for a birch tree. No saplings dropped. So, I've got a question on the rules. I decided to use my blocks to slowly crawl to another birch tree. I never left the perimeter of my birch blocks, and there was always one on the ground. Is that against the rules?

    I was also going to ask how do you lose the challenge, but I dug myself out in the morning and a creeper blew up, destroying my entire tree :sad.gif:

    I've never fallen after waking up. Also I've never had any mobs spawn near by.

    Perhaps I should explain better.

    1) Create 1x1 column 5 blocks high
    2) Put block on the side of the column, so that it is 2x1
    3) Jump and place bed
    4) Crouch and sleep
    5)....
    6) Wake up refreshed?

    Where :RFlower: = Bed

    Let's you sleep outside without having a house or torches.
    Sorry, if this is well known, search doesn't work. It works great for exploring.

    You need to jump to place the bed and you need to crouch (shift) to sleep in it.

    That's ****ing retarded..OH I HIT THAT TNT BUT SINCE IM NEAR IT..IT WON'T EXPLODE.
    Yeah..cool story bro.

    A wild idiot appears!

    Yes, you did appear.
    So you're trying to back his saying that TNT doesn't explode if you're near it.
    Good job.
    [/quote][/quote]

    HAHAHAHA, you should stop talking, you aren't making things any better for yourself (hint: they aren't talking about the TNT, but a lack of ability to sense sarcasm).

    On topic: well played

    1. Big Bang has never been proven right so there is no need to prove it wrong.
    2. Notch Defense force makes these forums suck.


    Fully agree on point 2. Not just the moderators, but the damn players that have nothing to contribute, but 'wrong section' or some other inane pointless comment to bump their post count.

    This thread isn't about Minecraft, so it shouldn't be on this board; it belongs under Forum Discussion & Info.


    We should all report this guy for being off topic...

    posted a message on warning fake 'mods' to stay on topic
    I'm getting confused by some of the forum policies. On one hand there are a ton of legit topics posted into the beta section that always gets 1 or 2 people complaining that it is in the wrong section or it should go in the 'pics thread'.

    What I don't get is why they aren't getting warned to stay on topic. It happens to tons of other people, but never them. How is it on topic to complain that the thread is in the wrong place? Point being they derail the topic as much as anyone else and should be warned accordingly.

    If they have a problem they can use the report button, that's why it exists. If not, they should be warned and banned just like anyone else.

    Nice..but this should not be here. This should be in the beta survival picture thread.


    I'm starting to think people just post this to get a higher post count. Since it's obvious this guy didn't even read the topic...

    On Topic: That looks great, you were mentioning not using glass for the sides. Before when doing underwater structures or glass I would use rings of solid stone so I could add torches.

    Sort of like:

    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :stone:
    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: :stone: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Glass: :stone: :Glass: :Glass:

    etc....

    It allows you to add torches and still see the water on the side.

    Anyways, good luck on your project!

    posted a message on Blueprints requiring 420 x 210 x 60 = bad idea.
    If I had to get that much dug out I would build a mob trap and use :tnt: to mine it out. Unless you are in dire need of the materials you are digging up. You will have close to 40k stacks of cobble if you dig out the 420x 210x30 you were talking about.

    I made a wooden dragon that is around 55 blocks high at sea level. It is difficult to admire the top, but what I've been working on is a wooden rollercoaster that will take you around it so that you can admire it.

    posted a message on Question on Booster Power
    I created some tracks to speed me to bedrock and back up to the surface quickly. Here is a side schemetic of how the ramp leads to the bottom of the mine.

    :stone:
    :stone: :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: [] [] :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:

    etc.

    Basically there are 10 steps down then a double step, one up and then the patter repeats....
    This allows me to put a booster that will help it boost uphill where there are the 2 white spaces with a track going up
    (At the top the booster track loops to reset itself, since it only needs to work uphill).

    Here is the problem I have

    I installed one booster at the bottom, if I am in the cart it will boost me up all the way to sealevel (probably farther if the track extended farther) The booster is only about 5 tracks in length.

    If I just push a cart on it, then it will only boost about 20 blocks in height (about 2 of those patterns worth)

    Is it just a solution of install more boosters so that the empty carts can make it to the top? Will that effect the cart when I ride in it?

    If what I wrote is confusing at all, just ask and I will try to clarify it better.

    Thanks
