    posted a message on Mushrooms
    Quote from btwsupporter

    The only blocks I haven't seen them spread to are Glass, Chests, Workbenches, Furnaces, Etc. even when put in lowest light level for 3 days IRL Although everything around it was covered in mushrooms.


    Well I don't think glass, leaves and all the "transparent" blocks allow mushrooms on them, but in SMP I've gotten a mushroom on a workbench.
    Also, in Etho's Lets Play in one of the episodes (somewhere between 85-95) he went down into a cave system and mushrooms spread everywhere. I recall one on his workbench and furnace. These are deemed solid blocks, so I think mushroom spreading applies to them as well.

    posted a message on Burning Creeper! WTF!
    The creeper isn't taking damage from the fire (not turning red). Unless you managed to capture that precise moment it doesn't.

    Probably flint and steel, or a mod.

    posted a message on Shelters
    Usually I build into the side of a cliff...at a really high place (ladders going up, a small platform to walk along the cliff, then enter the house!)

    posted a message on Are mob traps cheating?
    Its a sandbox game, play it however you will.
    I don't think its cheating, it takes time and effort to build one trap.
    I've only built a pig trap so far... :\

    posted a message on It still rains when you are under the water

    Speaking of rain, it should turn lava into either obsidian or obsidian with like firey lines through it, if it doesn'y already.


    No, it really shouldn't. Firstly, surface lava is a rare and wonderful thing and I don't want to see it disappear the first time it rains, especially if I placed it there myself! Secondly, it's only a small step from making that change to "Hey, rain should put out burning Netherrack as well", at which point my entire kilometre-long railtrack has to be relit using torches...


    I agree with this. Rain will mess up structures with lava exposed, for sure. So no, i think.

    posted a message on [poll] Do you dislike/ like lighting? why?
    Doesn't lightning strike when its raining?
    Did Notch/Jeb mention something about rain putting out fires but not lava or something? I'm not too sure...but I'm guessing this is the case so lightning isn't so destructive.

    posted a message on Your first Minecraft mistake
    First mistake of mine was clawing my way through rock, in about 5 FPS, thinking it breaks as easily as dirt. I didn't know how to play then...makes me laugh.

    posted a message on Share your world seeds! [OP Being Organized!]
    I tried "sssSSSSSSSSSSsss"

    I got a dry-ish desert place. There are a lot of cliffs around though (cliffs, not overhangs) and quite a number of glitched floating sand blocks.

    game crashes immediately when i try to open it
    i can't play minecraft now! D:


    If you're on a Mac like me:
    Use another browser to download (I am using Google Chome and it downloaded, when I opened it crashed immediately, so I switched to Safari to download it, and now it works)

    Otherwise just download the .jar file and you should be able to run it.

    posted a message on How I build [Minecraft Montage]
    Catchy music. This is great! Made it really interesting, rather than a normal building series.
    Fun to watch, interesting, make another one!

    posted a message on MacBookPro can't play minecraft!?
    ^There is a faster solution. Force quit it. Alt+Command+Esc. If that doesn't work, take out the battery.

    I myself am using a very old mac (macbook 2.0) but with upgraded Harddrive space, memory, changed Keyboard, LED screen, and battery. Basically it is now a shell. Maybe you had too many applications running at once? I'm not too sure, that never happened to me before.

    posted a message on Chicken Conspiracy!
    They bribed Seananners with an egg to remain as a witness to the pig slaughtering! (i think it was the episode where he rode a pig)

    In other news, chickens fell down my Mineshaft and stared at my hidden floor chest where the diamonds are...I killed it and hid the chest somewhere else.

    posted a message on No Coal?
    My very first world had next to zero coal. I spawned on a small island with a dungeon under the surface (i didn't know what it was and how to play). I clawed out my base (literally, clawed. I had no crafting bench, i had no idea how to play).

    I had to walk for 5 minutes before finding a nice patch of flat land. From there i dug quite a bit, finally hit coal.

    Some worlds just don't have that much coal. :sad.gif:

    Look near surface, not too deep. More coal is found up there. Also, if you're on a Mac, tilt your screen all the way back, as far as it can go, then invert your screen (ctrl+alt+command+8). You should have better vision in the dark, and can spot ores easily without any torches if you do that.
