    posted a message on The trouble with tribbles ...erm... jar-files

    I think I solved it!

    I found a thread on reddit from 2 years ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/34bxus/installing_forge_with_the_new_local_java_runtime/

    I followed his instructions about the console commands and it worked. Forge is installed now and I could follow the rest of @paintbrush11's explanations!

    I share this for those who also have a local jre and didn't solve the issue yet.

    posted a message on Breeding Villagers

    And once again: Thank you!

    I must have been aiming wrong, because I hurt the villager when I tried to hit the cart. And I didn't want the villager to die by a second stroke, so I asked. But it was indeed so easy!

    And now, thanks to all of your help, my village has come to live! Already at 5 villagers now (starting from 2) and, boy, what a feeling when they first entered a house to stay the night! As if they were saying: "Good job, mate. This is a house I love to spend my life in." Okay, what they really said was: "Hmm". But I could really feel what it meant...

    posted a message on We were all noobs once. What is your minecraft noob story?

    Inside my brain:

    "That's lava. Stay away from lava. You just managed a level 30 enchant on a diamond pickaxe. And remember the 4 ender pearls you finally managed to gather. Also, you just digged for diamonds, you know how rare they are. And you forgot to take the water bucket with you. So stay away from lava."

    "Ok, but it's just one hole to fill and the lava's gone. I'm sure I can reach it. Really. Just need to step a little closer to the lava. Closer. Careful. A tiny bit clos...aaah..."

    posted a message on Minecraft 1.9 fighting mobs is broken, horribly

    As someone who started with minecraft 1 day before 1.9 came out (and playing survival on normal), these are my thoughts:

    1) Whenever I fight skeletons, using my shield and so effectively making their ranged attack useless, I wonder how unfair a fight against them must have been before, without shields. They might have been the toughest mobs? The way it is in 1.9 feels somehow right.

    2) Two strikes with a sword or one with a bow to kill zombies isn't really time consuming. I found myself often just standing there in the night to kill dozens of them just because it is quick and easy. Even 5 or 6 attacking at the same time are easily controlled. That might have been even easier before (I guess), but this also feels somehow right.

    3) I don't understand how this "negatively impacts mining"? You don't mine with your sword or bow, do you?

    posted a message on Minecraft doesn't start anymore


    just now the launcher downloaded an update and can't start 1.9 anymore. I played for days now version 1.9, so I have no clue what has happened. This is the error message:

    Fehler: Hauptklasse net.minecraft.client.main.Main konnte nicht gefunden oder geladen werden
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: Using incremental CMS is deprecated and will likely be removed in a future release

    The german part means Error: Main class net.minecraft.client.main.Main couldn't be found or loaded

    Additional info: I'm a new player and so my install includes a local Java in the minecraft folder, instead of a system-wide Java install. I want it to keep that way.
