    posted a message on The Problem With Elytra

    Yep! Many endearing old features of MC are completely undermined by elytra and shulker boxes.

    But it's still fun!

    posted a message on Enchant Commands not working - any workarounds?

    Commands such as this:


    /give @p diamond_sword{ench:[{id:16,lvl:5},{id:34,lvl:3},{id:19,lvl:2},{id:21,lvl:3},{id:20,lvl:2}]}

    ..give one only an unenchanted diamond sword.
    Perhaps it is being reworked?

    posted a message on Welthaupstadt Germania

    Vanguard Survival - vanguard.apexmc.co - is a latest version (1.12.2 atm) survival server. Grief, raid, kill, survive. We have a land claim plugin so you can protect your builds, /tpa, and /sethome, but mob griefing is on, and everything else is default. Render Distance is 15 chunks, and world border is 30mil.

    If you are a good builder and are interested in the grotesque, stripped classical architecture of Germania, go to /warp germania. If you would like to contribute to this assortment of Speer's works, your interest would be welcomed.

    posted a message on Creeper Explosions in Grief Prevention

    I have the latest release of Grief Prevention, and I noticed that creepers no longer do damage anywhere in the world.
    I would not mind if creepers did no damage inside a claim (thought that too I would disable if i could), but even in the wilderness?

    I looked through the Grief Prevention config file for CreeperExplosions or something similar and saw nothing. There is EndermenMoveBlocks: true and SilverfishBreakBlocks: true, but nothing about creepers.

    Is there a node I can add to allow creeper explosions?

    posted a message on Is permissionsEx really necessary?

    I have EssentialsX, chat, protect, and spawn. That is all.
    I noticed that there in the Essentials config.yml, there is a list of minimal permissions and a default set of kits and groups.
    All I really want to do (for now anyway) is for players to be able to do /home bed.
    I tried to add, under Player Commands
    - home bed

    but this did nothing, just as I suspected, as the format seems wrong for one thing.

    I feel certain that I should be able to facilitate/manage a small list of player commands without having to get into the deeper complexities of permissionsEx. AM I right?

    This is bird's eye view.

    posted a message on Comparator Question

    When the dropper is full, the comparator emits full signal, hitting the rs-nor latch, turning on the fast clock to dump the dropper. When it is empty, and comparator goes dark, I want it to hit the rs-nor again, turning off the clock.
    Currently I have the comparator leading to 15 dust - when the last one lights up, the latch is thrown.
    Also, on the very first dust leading from the comparator, I branched out a single repeater to an inverter (block with a torch on it). This way, when the thing is empty, the comparator goes dark, the torch comes on and lights up the other long line of dust going to the other end of the latch to turn it off again.
    Surely there is a much more compact way of doing this?

    posted a message on OptiFine HD (FPS Boost, Dynamic Lights, Shaders and much more)

    Hello OptiFine experts! I have always wanted this mod, but have never succeeded installing it. Talking with players on servers about this I am led to think its the easiest thing in the world! But I feel like there is some mundane detail they assume I know about that I do not.
    I go to the optifine page.
    I wait out the adfly and click on the download.
    The bar pops up at the bottom of my screen asking what to do with this file. I click "Save As" and save it to the desktop.
    Download complete.
    I see the new OptiFine 1.10 folder on my desktop and double click it. It opens via WinRAR.
    From the top task bar in the WinRAR window I choose "extract to," then, using the directory, I choose the mods folder in the .minecraft folder and hit enter.
    The window comes up showing the extraction and the progress bar moves quickly.
    Then it is over (apparently).
    I launch minecraft, edit profile, and FAIL. The optifine version is not there!

    What have I done wrong please anyone?

    posted a message on Victory in the War with hacks/griefers?

    Seems like more and more are getting the memo - Back up often!

    The poor devil's such as team avolition and I Can Has Grief have fizzled, perhaps because there is no honor among griefers, perhaps because all the hard work of destruction is pointless when it can be rolled back so quickly and easily.

    Is my premise wrong? Is there still a thriving griefer community?

    posted a message on Have Redstone Mechanics changed? Elevator now dead.

    I built a zipper redstone elevator in 1.7.2 in my single player world. It worked great through 1.8, but now it fails in 1.9 snapshots. Pistons will be left sticking out in the elevator shaft and I am dropped to my death. I tried adding a tick or two to the repeaters at bottom, but no. Any help?

    posted a message on Christmas present chests no more.

    IT recently occured to me that Microsoft, vastly different culturally than Mojang, will not allow anyone to be offended by green and red chests with bows on them.

    I hold out hope that Mojang still enjoys some independence and that we WILL see the traditional Christmas Surprise, but ....

    Anyone else thought of this?
