Jul 13, 2012xDMaelstrom posted a message on Does world downloader work with the current minecraft?http://www.mediafire.com/?r5i531524edgyl7Posted in: Survival Mode
I've never used this, but this is the version for 1.2.5 from this thread: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/333322-world-downloader/

Maelstrom had a fairly tidy layout but I can't seem to find the thread atm.
Got it. My post history has so many threads about mob traps.

Also, I recommend having at least 1,000 blocks of spawnable space to get a decent output, regardless of cave lighting. As you light up caves around you, the rate will become better, but because of how simple this design is (the mobs aren't forced off the spawning pads in any way, so they can despawn), you should have more spawning space to compensate.

Does it have to be diamond ?
It would be slightly easier to get the enchantment you want if you didn't; however, your enchantment will last longer if you do use diamonds.
If you are short on diamonds, you can use iron with only my above statement to think about.

It's all in how you build your grinder. It's very easy to control the spawning with a little research on how mob spawning works or even just checking out builds on Youtube. I will admit, the worst thing to have to deal with is creepers, if you're not careful it's very easy to have one explode on you. It helps to build the part where the mobs end up out of obsidian if you have any issue with that.
The best thing about a well built dark-room mob grinder is a steady flow of mobs. Once you're set you never need to AFK for any long period of time. You can easily do something nearby or browse the web then come back every few minutes to clear out a good chunk of mobs.
I can do the exact same thing with my endermen experience farm, but I can do it in 10 minutes, whereas my regular mob grinder is no where near as good (and it has almost double the spawning spaces that the endermen farm does). I usually do the same thing, AFK for 2 minutes, come back and clear out all of the endermen, repeat.
Creeper gunpowder drops are so valuable to me because I use TNT a lot, but turning a regular mob farm into an experience farm just cuts too much into that gunpowder rate.

At level 22 you have about a 1/13 chance of getting it (on diamond tools).
At level 50 you have about a 1/7 chance of getting it.
For Fortune III:
At level 45, you have about a 1/4 chance of getting it.
At level 50, you have about a 1/3.5 chance of getting it.
Jul 13, 2012It's a branch mine. You aren't mining out all 360,000 blocks in it. Additionally, I think he meant 4 levels, not 4 blocks high. Adding a side benefit to branch mining isn't a bad thing. I also have a tendency to get large build-ups of cobblestone (though most of it was from making my base, 10 double chests full of it). I'll certainly use that in 1.3 in my spare time, though my Endermen farm is just flat out faster.Posted in: Survival Mode
Jul 12, 2012Dig a 1x2 tunnel, then go back and place TNT along it (spaced every 5 blocks) and blow it up. As long as the diamond is not visible in the 1x2 tunnel, it should survive the blast (as long as it's hiding behind stone and not dirt or gravel).Posted in: Survival Mode

Thanks for that link. I need to make an
Thanks for that link. I need to make an enderman spawner very soon, as tekkit eats ender pearls like candy. lol
I wish I had a use for so many ender pearls. I have have 12 double chests full of them.
(I only play vanilla survival, so no mod shortcuts for me.)
Jul 11, 2012xDMaelstrom posted a message on Who uses ender pearls as a method of transportation.I have 12 double chests filled with ender pearls from my endermen farm. Yes, I can use enderpearls for transportation whenever I want (I usually use it to hop around vertically tall areas, and just sprint everywhere where it is flat).Posted in: Survival Mode
Jul 11, 2012You will need:Posted in: Survival Mode
- 2 Computers, one being a high end computer that can be used for recording and video editing, and the other needs to be sufficient to play Minecraft (laptops work fine)
- A locally hosted server. I would try and run this on the computer you will be building on, not recording. It just allows you to record better, but it is not required.
- 2 Minecraft accounts. One will record and one will build. They need to be full accounts to get on your locally hosted server.
- A recording program of some kind. I can vouch for Fraps, and I know a lot of others will vouch for bandicam. Either way, you need full versions of either of these, as you could be recording for an hour with no breaks.
- Lots of disk space to store the footage. Fraps footage is stored in raw .avi format. It takes approximately 200mb per minute of recording. That will be 40-50gb of space used to record your timelapse.
- Good video editing software. It needs to be able to drastically speed up the footage, make basic cuts, and whatever else you need (honestly, I could do this with Windows Live Movie Maker).
Now, there are several additional things you can do. You can make the recording fancier by using the Camera Studio mod: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/938825-125-camera-studio-updated-on-mar-25/. Otherwise, a static camera will work fine, but I recommend taking the time to learn this. You also need a place to build. You can either flatten an area in an existing world, or you can build your worlds from scratch to fit the build you are doing (like FyreUK: ).
After you have your world set up, and the local server is hosting the world, you need to log in with both accounts. On your recording account, you need to set up the camera angles used to capture the build (timelapses require a lot of planning, make sure you know exactly what you are building). On your building account, you need to build segments at a time, so that it can be recorded. Once your build is complete, you need to open your video editor of choice, put all the pieces together, potentially get rid of things that are repetitive, put music behind the video (make sure you watch the music usage rights for whatever you choose), and then upload the video when it's finished.
Just the basics, but timelapses can get quite complicated, and no two timelapses are the same.
Jul 10, 2012If you open your inventory to 'pause' the game, then you are set. If you used escape to pause it, then you are out of luck (because that actually freezes the game).Posted in: Survival Mode
Second thing: Don't ever leave those things running for more than an hour or two. After that, the lag from the number of mobs (or experience orbs after kill them) will likely crash your game.
Third thing: You can't spell ignorance without IGN. That is a pretty bad example of a mob trap. They are utilizing like a fourth of the spawning area.
