    Best case, if the footprint blocks are 100% their own mod, try just removing the footprint mod (or whatever it's called) from your .minecraft/mods/ folder.

    Higher than that and you get [...] tearing [...]


    I have seen Linux users with nVidia graphics cards (nVidia GPUs + Linux is a textbook example of how to get screen tearing). They can get thousands of FPS and perfect visuals.


    Quote from Palin»

    [...] maybe you wish to also heat up your room? [...] excess heat from GPU and CPU [...]


    I don't know what it is with people and hot rooms. I've never seen it get that bad. I have a server running 24/7 in my study and if I leave the AC off, the temperature in the room does not exceed 20°C (68°F) (It usually sits around 18°C (~64°F)). As a bonus, my PC (In the same room) has rubbish cooling, with the CPU sitting between 60°C and 90°C as I use it. No effect on room temperature.


    And yeah, 144 Hz is a baseline for gaming these days. I'm still faithful to 60 Hz because I see no real need spending the extra money for "gaming" equipment.


    Getting low FPS can be for a number of reasons, and has a lot of optimisations you can make - depending on how much you'd like to sacrifice on graphics.

    For some non-visual changes, download and install OptiFine (There are pre-releases for 1.17 already), set Advanced OpenGL to Fast, tweak all settings in Video Settings > Performance, to name a few.

    It just looks like you haven't made the platforms wide enough, giving the water a chance to go over the edge. Check your measurements again and make sure that the platform is the right size, and that the dispenser is in the right spot on each level.

    I don't know about Arch, I know there is a RetroArch software provided by Google but this doesn't let you play Minecraft.

    The only Google OS that does as far as I know is android, and Minecraft on there is bedrock edition.


    1. Arch is short for Arch Linux. Which, as the name suggests, is a distribution of Linux.
    2. RetroArch is nothing to do with Google or Arch Linux. It's a launcher for emulators, targeted at old games (as the name suggests). Google doesn't own or provide it. It's its own open-source project worked on by the open-source community.
    3. You are right about Android being owned by Google (With Google's only other OS being ChromeOS). And yes, Bedrock Edition is available on Android. (You still can run Minecraft Java on an Android, though; as Android supports Java natively. This is achievable with applications such as MCinaBox)

    I wouldn't recommend having that Barrel directly in between the Bookshelf block and the Enchanting Table. It renders the Bookshelf behind it useless to getting higher-level enchantments.

    See Enchanting Mechanics - Bookshelf Placement on the Wiki.

    It does have a GPU. An ancient Intel Mobile GPU. Running Java through the iGPU in my CPU or the discreet GPU itself has little to no difference.

    posted a message on Java or Bedrock?

    My PC is the definition of low-end.

    12 years old, 3 GBs of RAM, a HDD, and a Pentium. I've made loads of optimisations to my Java 1.6 client, and only get 15 FPS.

    Aside from using Arch Linux, I would not choose to play Bedrock even if I had Windows 10.

    posted a message on Java or Bedrock?

    Bedrock Edition is written in C++, not C#.



    I knew I'd be wrong on that. I just went with my gut and I was wrong, sorry.


    For my own opinion, Java Edition is my only choice as a Linux user. Mod support helps make it more attractive, although the Texture Update kind of ruined that for me (very few mods from 1.14 on have Programmer Art textures), and I personally find it easier to find other JE players than BE players.

    I use Linux too, so I'm in a kind-of similar situation.



    On the other hand, Bedrock wins over Java in performance, although there are some Java Edition mods that help improve it. I do miss the Bedrock-style bridging, though (at least as much as I can without actually playing it).


    Yeah, the performance is better...

    This was actually the first Minecraft build I learnt [on March 21st, 2013]. It's the first ever thing I ever saw in Minecraft.

    It's also the first thing I built in Minecraft [on March 22nd, 2013].


    I was told it was a "Piggy Volcano," though.

    Glow Squids are under a different mob cap. Your farm is not affected by them. It's actually a bonus, because you get Glow Ink Sacs now for free!

    posted a message on Why are the servers spam

    • 12+, 13+, 16+, 18+, and 21+ are all things seen on more than just Minecraft servers. It makes people curious, especially given that the target audience is under the age of whatever they're saying you have to be over.
    • Hardcore is most likely a lie. It makes people think that there's actual skill needed. (There's not)
    • Emojis make things stand out a bit more than normal text.
    • Towny is just a popular plugin, big servers use it, so a small server using it should surely guarantee "quality."
    • Multiplayer sleep is helpful, but also an oversaturated market. I made a multiplayer sleep plugin a few months back and put it on SpigotMC, it got hundreds of downloads in the first week, compared to something I've spent months of development on - and it only got half the downloads. I also didn't advertise the single player sleep plugin. I kept it basic. I can only assume its really highly in demand.
    • Hermitcraft is the most successful Minecraft SMP ever. You want players? Add "Hermitcraft" to the name, and people will come after searching for Hermitcraft.
    • The Dream SMP is popular, people search it up, putting it in the name will add your server to the results.
    • Anarchy is almost never the case. It's catching on to the 2b2t bandwagon which made the word "anarchy" popular in the world of Minecraft servers. Anarchy means no rules; I can guarantee an "anarchy" server will have a lot of rules. It's bullcrap.
    • "Pros only" is just blowing hot air up the players' arses.
    • Using a popular mod name is trying to ensure "quality" and credibility to the server, same case as was with Towny.
    • Discord? Y'know what people want others to join more than their Minecraft server? Their Discord server. If they have a Minecraft server that's decently popular (>10 concurrent players), they will really want those people in their Discord. I don't know why. Humans are social beings; being a tosser like that means they have no friends. They're probably lonely.
    • "Follow the script." This is a huge red flag, for roleplay Discords, Minecraft servers, and anything else. This means that the owner is online nearly every hours of the day, acting like a dictator, being in creative mode whilst everyone else is in survival mode, and teleporting everyone around like their own little puppets. Not a single scripted SMP in the history of Minecraft has ever succeeded, lived long, or been a good SMP.

    To show up in a search, you need to have buzz-words. Without it, you'll drown in the hordes of other Minecraft servers.
