    gold is the worst material, you wouldn't make a pickaxe out of gold in real life, would you?
    If you get unbreaking on gold it's actually decent. Gold mines faster than diamond by default.

    Gold is also more "enchantable" than any of the other materials. But diamond is still better for enchanting in my opinion, since you'll either get a longer lasting diamond pickaxe, a faster diamond pickaxe, or a better diamond pickaxe.

    Also what would be the easiest and most effective way to set up a server for just my friend and I? I', not renting one just for us two, do you have to go through the port forwarding and all that or can you just use Hamachi? Or Bukkit?

    Tuungle and Hamachi both work for hosting as far as I can tell. My friends and I have tried it before.

    Made a 1.3 world, found a lovely taiga biome (Love those biomes to death). Anyone else notice that on large biomes veins seem bigger? I understand sometimes two veins are right next to eachother and seem connected, but it's become quite common.



    It feels really cozy in there. I usually build fairly fancy stuff, but it just feels great and simple.

    Bukkit is basically the Minecraft server software with the capability of adding plugins, it won't help you with setting up a port and hosting your server.

    These mountain biomes are amazing, at least without that damn lighting bug.
    Also, fuck endermen.
    Seriously. I accidentally looked at an enderman's leg or something, and he was SO FUCKING MAD. I ran as fast as I could and hid in my tiny house and he just stood outside at my window, screaming and screaming and screaming and

    I'd love a mod that basically made you create enchantments as scrolls. You could just go to the Table, click one of those three tabs as usual, and you'd get a scroll with random enchantments like usual.

    The thing is you would be able to craft a tool and the scroll with said enchantment, to make it an enchanted tool.

    I think that it wouldn't be too unbalanced, yet a lot less frustrating.

    I use EnchantingPlus, which gives you non-hieroglif text for enchants, you define which level of the enchant you want, you can repair enchanted items, you can remove an enchant from any enchanted items + it gives you back the cost of the enchant, and you can transfer enchants to another items.
    I highly recommed it!

    Here's a trick I learned: Since endermen can't fit into holes two high, just hide under a tree or a distance from the front door of your house. They usually don't teleport if they can't reach you too.

    Hey uh. I have some questions about the xbox version...

    1. How much is it? I'm guessing like $10. I hope. There isn't DLC, is there?

    2. Do I need Gold to play with others or will Silver suffice?

    3. Can I save worlds or have multiple worlds? Will they carry over after updates?

    4. How close is this version to the current PC version? Can I make pistons and/or...whatever the newest technology is? Does the endgame world exist?

    5. Worth it?


    My PC broke so this is my only option. :<

    Edited:

    oh. and uh...villages/fortresses or whatever. those exist?

    1. $20. Minecraft on the PC isnt even $10

    2. Obviously you have to have gold, like every single other game.

    3. Yes you can have worlds, no they dont delete after ever single update that would be ridiculous.

    4. They just added the update with pistons and shears, that update came out about a year ago IIRC. No endgame thats fairly new.

    5. Yes. If you have friends.

    Edited:

    Yes villages, no villagers though.

    Good point.

    Dragon's Dogma lets you have the full experience with only silver. :(

    Someone on GameFAQs was angry they'd have to start a new world. Not sure why.

    Hell, that's the update I was at when my computer broke. Works for me.

    :(

    There is DLC, skinpacks, although only one at the moment. There's the free "Summer of Arcade" pack, and trial versions of the paid packs.

    the pc version continues to generate the world as you explore it. does the xbox version do that, or are you confined to your starting area? (more or less)

    There's a limited area for the Xbox's rather pathetic hard drive, I think it's 1000x100 blocks or so. About the maximum size of a Map, if I recall.

    Oh. 1000x100 isn't too bad.

    I wonder if the seed system works the same way it does on PC...if so, Gilgamesh it is. I loved that seed.

    Edited:

    wait

    is it 1000x100x64? I can do that.

    I'm pretty sure that the vertical space is the same, although it's not in the Anvil format, so the height level is capped at Y: 128. Everything else is the same though.
    And yes, I tested an old seed from 1.5_01, and as far as I could tell, it was exactly the same, so get your nostalgia on.

    The doors back then were screwed up because Notch decided to skimp on properly coding double doors, so the Redstone system doesn't work simply. I'd check out the wiki.

    It doesn't have all the features like the PC, but the best part is the split screen. I play with my friends and family all the time on a single TV and xbox.

    It's one of those games that everyone has, and the reworked multiplayer is better than having to find a server and then having to find somewhere nobody's touched and then getting your shit griefed when you're offline.
