    Apparantly when I join this server my game goes down to 5ish fps, which is too bad because it sounds fucking awesome.

    Edited:

    Nevermind, apparantly wathever company makes java is filled of retarded monkeys who installed me some 32-bit instead of 64-bit...

    Edited:

    Why the dumbs? It literally didn't ask me anything it just downloaded Java 32-bit and even when I tried to "verify" it on their website it said it was a-ok, if it wasn't for minecraft telling me 32-bit java doesn't work well with it, I never would have figured this out and it is the monkeys at Javas fault.

    Well, I finished up the first grinder for the double blaze spawner I found. It's Etho's design, and it works really well. The XP I have in the screenshots is from about 15 minutes of use.


    Some multiplayer glitch causes blazes to appear outside of the spawning chamber, but it still works fine.



    Here's the link to the tutorial video, if anyone's interested.

    walk out until first tree, usually within 2k (certainly in the +/+ direction)

    Either:
    - Kill spider(s) build fishing rod -> catch fish (spider eye's can be eaten as well, gives poison though)
    - Kill zombies, eat rotten flesh
    - Kill skeletons, use bonemeal on grass (edit: grass block) -> cut grass to find wheat
    - go roughly in a circle around spawn (500/100 blocks) many have starter up stuff like wheat in this range (watch out for people in diamond gear, better keep distance)

    Repeat until you have enough wheat -> build small hidden farm. If still lack of bucket, let water flow in from above lake / ocean / river into a small hidden dug in place. Remember, it keeps flowing as long as it goes down each 6 blocks.

    I went to 2k2k yesterday, probably should've read the thread. Needless to say, I'm huddled in a hillside nearby, but I don't think anyone will try to raid this place again.

    mother of god the lava flows
    Are you seriously considering trying to fix 2k2k because people stop by from time to time to make sure that's not going to happen.

    I asked someone for food and they gave me 4 pieces of bread. If it weren't for him, I would still be at spawn trying to leave.

    I now have a full stack of each mushroom for stew, bread and some porkchops/steak.

    Bro Tip: I always have a little stash under my "Scar wuz here" signs, so if you see one, just dig in front of it, you'll find something.
    Unless someone raided it earlier, in which case the whole thing was in vain

    Or a BUD switch connected to the sign block which is wired to underground TNT.

    Break rules and remove sign? Boom.

    I actually have no idea if that would work.

    I saw those, but I left them there, as I was already wealthy enough.

    I might make some bread stashes for people a little while from now.

    Don't believe you can put signs on pistons, and having it any other way would make it obvious that a BUD trap was present.

    Also, shame I can't seem to find a "mute player" mod, sure I could just hit F1 but it makes it somewhat annoying not seeing what tool I'm holding and I'd just rather be able to stop seeing spam about " is the best" fill the screen. test

    First day playing, and did a 15K haul. Made a couple of FP hidey holes.
    Oh I almost forgot about those chests, seeing as you don't have any diamonds in your inventory you didn't find the hidden chest with some diamonds, it wasn't a lot but they were free. I'm surprised its not destroyed it's not that far out.

    probably going to make the move to around 5k today, I spent some time this morning setting up a few bolt-holes in case my move is compromised, but frankly it's pretty quiet around here. Also made it to 2k2k, pretty cool ruins and I managed to find a bit of wheat but I didn't stick around long

    -/- quadrant barely has anyone living in there, so it's a good place to start. Honestly though, I've never just been killed while walking.

    Also, if with a small group, I think settling down somewhere together would be a good idea.

    I'm planning on eventually making it past 75-100k where I'll be *relatively* safe, but it'll be slow since I fundamentally distrust nether travel. Once I've got a private haven for myself I'll probably be up for joining up with groups

    Nether travel is easy, if you have enough food/pickaxes. At least for the first 3000k as there are many bridges and ways to travel already made by others.

    Edited:

    you WILL get raided. 5k is hardly safe.

    hopefully I'll be able to do about 5-6k a day walking, I plan on leaving a string of bases behind me with a few supplies left in them to give people head-starts. There's currently a base of mine with seeds, a small, functioning farm and some trees at:
    X:-1100
    Z: -435

    The base proper is hidden in the cliff face, there's also a melon plantation about 200 blocks away

    Are you saying you're bad at travelling in the nether and are likely to die and lose everything or something else?

    I don't understand how you can distrust simply moving about in a different dimension. Normally I would provide an analogy here to illustrate my confusion at your choice of words, but since Earth doesn't have any comparable dimensions, I guess I cannot.

    But it really isn't difficult to navigate the nether; there are an abundance of tunnels if you despise those 1 block bridges. Check the y18- and y120+ regions and you're sure to find something, especially along the major axes. Personally I explored out to a meager 8.5k in the nether (65k over world) last night and documented around 10 distinct nether portals, various ruins and bases and sign boards, then visited Zion (which is still completely intact and non-griefed) all within about 90 minutes and one stack of melon.

    Believe in yourself; it can be done!

    It's true, travel via nether is really only for moving as fast as possible outwards, without regard to interesting sights or creations, since 99.99999% of everything interesting is built in the over world.

    To each his own and good luck in your travels. Take lots of screenshots! :)
