Damn, maybe I shouldn't have suggested it. That'd be the stuff of nightmares I imagine they'd be super rare.

Re: Minecraft

So i thought i'd give it a try.. Can't/won't work on my i3 iMac with 10.6.8.. I tried the older "minecraft classic". I wasn't able to get it to run.. Java is all up dated.

Heres the thing though. For shits and giggles i tried it on my old g5 iMac with 10.4.11. Classic seems to work fine on it.

What am i doing wrong?

"Wasn't able to get it to run" doesn't say much. What happens when you try to run it? How are you trying to run it?

Re: Minecraft

Hope you get your problem fixed Saturn. It'd be nice to have a new face around the place.

Hmmm, well I'm full-blown gonzo confused about portals now.

Step 1: Build a portal in the nether that brings me out in an underwater cave a few islands away from a jungle biome. Cool says I, I'll build a new portal over by the jungle and save myself the hike.

Step 2: Build a portal next to the jungle. Hop in, it takes me back to the original portal in the nether. Odd, says I.

Step 3: Hop right back into the portal and it creates a brand new portal even deeper in the cave than the first one.

Step 4: The hell?!

Thinking with portals doesn't sit well with Minecraft.

Step 1: Set Bedspawn next to the cave portal.

Step 2: Destroy the original nether portal and put all your things in an easy to find chest.

Step 3: Kill yourself, respawn at the cave portal, destroy that one.

Step 4: Create your jungle portal, go through retrieve the stuff in the chest.

Step 5: Cross your fingers it sends you back through to the jungle, because if it doesn't then I've no idea what to do.

Re: Minecraft

I dunno, I kinda like havign my spawnpoint where it is...

Anyway, I tried a few more times to break the old portal then going into the new one. When I ended up with a new portal right next to the broken one, I just decided to say screw it. All I can figure is that the new jungle portal I set up is over a lava lake in the nether or something.

I did use a compass to hike back to my main base, a two day walk. found another jungle but still no damn villages!

Re: Minecraft

It's completely counter-intuitive, but due to a "fix" that Notch implemented shortly after the Nether was introduced portals must be placed on the Nether side to link up properly. You have to go to the jungle portal, get the x and z coordinates using F3, divide those by 8, go to those coordinates in the Nether and build a portal there.

Re: Minecraft

I guess I could try that. But at this point, I'm just gonna say the hell with it and just lay down some minecart track to make the trip back and forth to portals easier.

But damn me, still no villages.

In other news, This needs to be the new game intro.

Re: Minecraft

Also, I just read a potentially useful tip on the Minecraft forum re finding Strongholds.
Someone reported that if you listen very carefully, you can sometimes hear the sound of zombies pounding on doors deep underground. So just wanderign the landscape listening carefully might be worth a shot.

I just want them to stop restricting strongholds to three per world, they should be "infinite" like the Nether fortresses. I can't go to the End and "win" the game in my main world because strongholds wont generate that far out in newly-generated land.

Re: Minecraft

I thought the 3-stronghold limit was already removed, a while ago?
