We need to go deeper... to find all that redstone as it only appears on the bottom 19 levels.


In 1.7 news: Jeb is back working on Minecraft; Pistons are currently being worked on; you will need shears to gather wool from sheep.

Re: Minecraft

I'm starting to dislike all the one-use tools. They're crafted to get at something once and likely not get used again. Which can be a problem resources are scarce.

Shears have 4 uses, according to Jeb. They shear sheep (and destroy wool blocks faster), they cut leaves (possibly meaning we can collect and plant leaf blocks), they diffuse TNT and there's a fourth use that he says is a secret.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, shears. Whatever. But hopefully he can help Notch squash a few of these damn bugs.

Still, how many times is one going to use them or have a need for them other than that one time? It's like axes. I rather use my fists than use axes because you can't break them. Well, not in Minecraft anyway.

Re: Minecraft

Exactly Owain. It just needlessly eats up a slot in your inventory.

Re: Minecraft

I have so many damned axes, pickaxes, swords, and other gear that I made, used once, and then got a better material to make them out of. I created an artificial river to dump all my trash in because I was tired of adding space to my storage room.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I made a shovel to shovel snow and get snowballs, but realistically, how often am I going to need snowballs? Other than also shoveling dirt, it doesn't really have all that many uses for it since getting dirt is easy with your fists. Tools start to become redundant. I'm going to have to start building a toolshed for all my tools

Re: Minecraft

Is it that you have lots of the same kind of tool, or many different kinds?

What if there were an option to merge tools of the same kind together, to create a single long life version of it?

Re: Minecraft

I could go for an option to recycle tools back to their component parts.

Then don't carry them around all the time. When I'm running low on wood, I make a stone axe, head out into the forest and get all the wood I can until the axe runs out (which is around two full stacks). I'll do the same thing with shears.

The only tools I bring everywhere with me are two stone pickaxes and two stone shovels, since I use them both so often. Everything else I make one of and store it in a chest when I don't need it.

When you're making a small igloo, you need a lot of snowballs.

You mean, like a diamond tool?
