    Except with the spacing being 2, not 3, you might miss stuff
    Almost all ore formations are more than 1 block wide, so it's generally better to have a 3 block spacing rather than 2.

    Edited:

    layer 13 is 13 blocks above bedrock?
    Press F3, if Y is 13 you will be 13 blocks over the bottom of the map.

    I think 15 is a better level than 13. the character is one block higher than bedrock so none of it gets in your way when mining, its only visibly under your feet.

    But there's no chance of getting diamonds above you if you dig at layer 15, because the layer right above you will be 17, which is above the area where diamonds spawn.

    Actually, the best layer to mine for diamonds is at 10 or 11 since they can spawn below, to the sides and above you very frequently.

    Lava is extremely common at layer 10 and below, so I wouldn't really recommend digging that low since it would slow you down a lot.

    I've always heard 12 is best. It is just above lava and diamonds can be found all around you.

    I would personally say that 13 or 14 are slightly better, because you will have an increased distance away from the lava, which will make it possible to mine all ores below you without having them fall in to the lava.

    You could just pour water onto the lava, then dig around any ore to make sure it's okay to mine.

    I managed to encase a diamond ore vein in obsidian doing this.

    I'm trying to remember the name of a logic puzzle that I played a long, long (8+ years) time ago. It's sort of hard to describe (and impossible to google), so I made it in redstone and was hoping someone would know the name of it.



    The basic premise is when any of the 8 buttons (the leftmost button is unique) is pressed, it and the two adjacent lights are toggled. (There is a left-right wrap so that the rightmost button considers the leftmost light as "adjacent", and vice versa.) The goal is to have every light on at once. You can reset every light by pressing the leftmost button.

    It's not a very difficult puzzle, and is easily brute-forced. But the name of it is totally escaping me. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    The world is here, if anyone wants to give it a shot (made in an older version of Minecraft (too lazy to update (would need to do a manual update because it's so old))) :

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37670451/redstone.rar

    (Also, the redstone is pretty sloppy. I almost never play anymore, so I'm rusty.)

    Edited:

    Occurred to me that the world is in a different file format, from the older version of Minecraft. I'm converting it now so that you don't have to do it yourself.

    Edited:

    Done. Link is the same.

    Regarding the discussions on mining, I've always considered mining through layers 11 and 12 to be ideal.

    Bedrock occurs in the lowest five layers of the map (with the lowest supposedly being pure bedrock and nothing else). Lava lakes are common at layers 10 and below. And diamonds occur in the lowest 16 layers. If one digs through levels 11 and 12 (level 10 being the layer one is standing on and 12 being one's approximate Y reading), one will be digging through diamond territory on top of lava lake level and well above bedrock.

    I was using world guard, and I had protected the _ _ global _ _ area, and it was all protected, and I had tested it out after I made a region that had the build flag set to allow, and once I de-op'd myself I wasn't able to build in that zone. Any ideas?

    Holy fucking shit, diamond armour. Fell in lava like five times, one was for at least 15 seconds and the other was about 7/8 while poisoned by a cave spider. Not once did my health drop below half. Fuckin' diamond armour.

    Imagine the toll that puts on your diamond armor. Lava damage is pretty much constant. I managed to fall in unarmored, and the only thing that saved me from certain death was defending (MOUSE2). Seems like it reduces all forms of damage, to me.

    Played with a friend for a few hours. This is the end result



    Then I made an enchantment room. The hole to the right leads to two levers that open the door. The door itself has a pressure plate inside so no one gets stuck inside.

    eg. if your position is Y 14, you're standing on Y 12
    No, it says 15.6 for example. Player height is 1.6m (Or the eye level. ) So you are on 14.
