Re: Minecraft

You could make a lava level with lava on the floors, walls and ceilings behind a layer of glass. But a full 50x50 room would need at least 5,000 lava source blocks, so that's probably not feasible. If you use an inventory hack you could make a giant ice-rink.

Re: Minecraft

Hmm, I like the idea of lava walls, though. I might do that!

A spawner level is also a good idea.

I'm not gonna cheat to do any of this, so it's gotta be things that are feasible to do legitimately.

The advantage with lava blocks is that if you do it right, a single source block can spread out to create seven vertical blocks. So you'd only need something like 20-30 to go all the way around your pit.

I prefer glass. I built my home in the side of a cliff, with a big glass wall overlooking a field strewn with torches. Nothing sneaks up on me. I only wound up building a fence in front of the house yesterday because I got tired of hordes of cows mooing at my door while I tried to work on things. Yes, I'm more worried about cows than creepers.

Note that they only seem to spawn in forests and taiga, so you won't find them elsewhere.

Re: Minecraft

You should be prompted to update, but you don't have to take the update if you don't want to. If you play online, you should make sure the servers you play on have also updated or you won't be able to play on them until they do! Bukkit servers do not support 1.4 yet (since it just came out today).

Hey, cows can be annoying. Especially when you have a waterfront base...

Re: Minecraft

Aww man, with a new version out, my custom skin pack doesn't work anymore. I'd forgotten how ugly the default game textures were. Gotta wait for the creator to release an updated version.

Glad to hear you've gotten hooked. I've started to get bored a couple of times, only to start a new construction project and get addicted all over again.

Yeah you definately want to put nice big windows near the front of any entrance. Monsters seem to be attracted to doors.

Oh, and if cows are a problem, try removing any stray torches, or sticking a few off in a field. Animals seem to cluster around lights during the night.

Re: Minecraft

I don't really like to build block houses out of wood and stone; I just prefer to dig into the side of a hill, add a door and the entrance, and I'm happy. It makes it a bit harder to find but it looks better.

Did the 1.4 update fix the snow? It better have, or I'm going to have to threaten notch with a diamond sword

EDIT: Mobs killed by the sun now drop the items that correspond to them, like feathers for zombies. I'm pretty sure that in previous versions if they are burned by the sun they didn't drop them. This'll make wolf-taming much easier (provided I can find some) because bones are now dropped without the risk of being shot at! Also some creepers exploded near my house, but the newly-refurbished cobblestone reinforcements prevented the worst of it. I'll share some pics of the aftermath and my new lava-fall as soon as photobucket starts cooperating
