    posted a message on My minecraft is stating as a demo! Please Help!

    You'll need to transfer the license to the console (HDD) you'll be using through Microsoft. Instructions for doing a license transfer are on the Xbox Support website. The DRM is set up so that the license is in two parts - one for the console and one for the gamertag that purchased the game.

    posted a message on making a village but need light radius of items

    You also have to count the height. Glowstone itself is light level 15. The light level reduces by 1 for each block you move away from the glowstone in ANY direction it is not obscurred by another block. So, if you imbed it in a ceiling at the 4th blocks off the floor, the block on the floor right below the glowstone would be at light level 12 (15-3), the blocks on the floor adjacent to that one in any direction would be at Level 11, etc. If you have glowstone lights spaced 6 apart, however, the light of each overlaps, so you should be good unless you put your lights 6 away from the wall first off. You should always start the row of light away from the wall and 1/2 the distance you put the lights apart from each other.

    posted a message on I Can't Get my Minecraft Game to load

    Do you get as far as the "Load", "Create", "Join" screen? If so, try perhaps creating a new world (assuming you're currently trying to load a saved world).


    Otherwise, is your Xbox performing OK with other games? or is there possibly something going wrong with your Hard Drive? Worst case fall back, you could try actually reformatting your entire hard drive (One of my relatives had to do this with his Xbox 360. It was devastating in that he basically had to start over with every game, including Minecraft, but it did fix his issue.)

    posted a message on cant throw ender eye to locate ender stronghold
    Quote from TheBAldOne2»

    Hello, Mr Nube here. I have been playing for a couple years before I learned of the eye of ender. I downloaded PaulSoarsjr world where he is showing how to get there. I can't throw the eye on that either. I cant make mushrooms grow either. What is up? I've tried creative mode and it doesn't work either. Help Please. This is embaracing since I am a 47yr old dad.


    If you're on a downloaded world from Paul Soares, you've posted this in the wrong section of the forums. Paul plays on PC and this is the Xbox 360 section... where downloaded PC worlds just wouldn't work on your Xbox 360.

    posted a message on Cant get new update on xbox360 console
    Quote from Aylanha»

    I have currently updated my xbox360 minecraft, but I am not able to play with other players online. The error I keep getting back is that I don't have the most current version. I cleared my cache and deleted the update and reinstalled the update. I continue to get the same error. Is there anything else I can do or is this an issue on minecraft end?


    I take it this is now happening again with TU33??? If so, best report it on the Mojang bug tracker to get 4Js attention. Last time round it was Microsoft's issue (i.e. something that 4J could not fix on their end), so you may wish to try contacting Microsoft as well. The problem has something to do with not getting the right build number when downloading an update.

    posted a message on Iron Golem farm?

    1) Give them access to a farm within their holding area.

    2) Throw them carrots, potatoes, and bread

    3) Trade with them


    All of the above helps to make them willing and they will breed if they are willing. After breeding once, they will return to being unwilling so you need to repeat the above steps again with them to have another baby villager.


    What I've done is basically replace the floor of the pods with farms and I allow the villagers a lot more room to move around the perimeter of the iron golem farm. I do have each side of the farm segmented with fence gates and try to keep about an equal number of villagers in each section. I can enter any of the sections myself through a fence gate in order ot trade with them. It seems to be working so far. I've lost a few villagers and they've bred to replace them.

    posted a message on Xbox is always launches arcade version

    It's exactly as Malacath says - either online or offline - both console version (disk or download) are identical once fully updated. The disk version must update through Live and it will save the update to the hard drive anyways (not overwrite on the disk). Beyond that, you need to have the disk in the drive to launch the disk version so that the digital rights can be confirmed (i.e. that the disk you have is an original). The download version confirms the console ID to verify that it is being launched on the console that purchased the game (or to which a license was subsequently transferred legitimately). If you are attempting to play the download version on a console that you did not use to purchase the game and you haven't properly transferred the license (through your Live account) AND you are not online for Live to at least confirm that you are the player who purchased the game, only the DEMO version of the game will launch. The disk version, however, will launch on any system and, if there is internet access available, it will update that system. However, the original disk must stay in the hard drive for the game to run.

    posted a message on Starting out

    Come up one level - Y12... that will put most of the lava at your feet. Bring a water bucket to turn lava into obsidian that you can walk on. Tunnel in a single direction as needed between crossing lava lakes. Explore the side caves as you encounter them, but keep coming back to tunneling straight ahead.. The tunnel can later be turned into an underground railroad to help move things across your map... and you should encounter plenty of diamonds in the process.

    posted a message on Xbox is always launches arcade version

    From Xbox Support:

    Minecraft is available on Xbox 360 as a digital download or as a physical disc. There is no difference between the downloadable and physical versions of the game.



    http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/games/minecraft-version-differences


    Not sure why it concerns you. If you really don't want the downloaded version, just delete it from your hard drive. You'll still need to allow the disc version to download updates though.

    posted a message on My son wants Godzilla in the game, how do I do this

    Unfortunately, the little kids who watch videos online don't realize they have to distinguish between what's available in Minecraft on the PC and what's available on the Xbox. Basically, the PC Edition allows the public to modify the game code (known as modding), so people have developed a ton of "free" addons to the game available for the PC. But modifying a game's code with unauthorized third-party software goes against the Terms of Use for the Xbox and Playstation systems, so the console editions don't support modding at all. Therefore, there is no way for your child to spawn a godzilla in the Xbox edition of Minecraft... he'd have to be playing on the PC to get that ability.

    posted a message on Villagers aren't breeding (first time trying this)
    Quote from JSTDV8»

    Thank you,

    I'll try just making actual little houses.

    Do you know if they need to be fairly close to the actual villagers or as long as the new houses are pretty much in the general vicinity of the original village I should be good.

    I guess I could also just make a fenced in system on the outside of the house they are trapped in and plant a garden out there and let them grow their own stuff, I think one of them is a farmer. Come to think of it, they trade fish, coal, and string. so maybe neither is a farmer. that might not work.


    The villagers have to be close enought to detect it as a house. According to the Wiki on Village Mechanics, that distance is 16 blocks horizontal and 3 blocks vertical. Here's the link:

    http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Village_mechanics

    The Wiki on villagers indicates that all brown robed villagers will tend crops... and I do notice the crops changing even in the sections of my village that don't actually have a farmer in them... I only have 2 farmers for 20 villagers right now and those 2 farmers don't have access to all the farm crops... just some... but the "rows" I plant do wind up getting mixed up from time to time... indicating that the villagers are indeed harvesting and replanting... just not in the neat rows I put in.

    posted a message on Villagers aren't breeding (first time trying this)
    Quote from JSTDV8»

    Hey guys, new to the forums here.

    I'm a little new (about a month) X box one.

    I found a villiage with 6 villiagers, got it fortified and lit up and built two iron golums. let my kids play on my seed and wouldnt you know they decided to build a mine inside my walls and not light it up. Needless to say, I'm down to two villagers now. And I can't seem to get them to breed.

    I trapped them in a house with a fence system.

    I tried throwing a ton of bread and carrots at them, I saw one throw some to the other. I must have thrown 30 carrots and 20+ bread in there. No luck

    So then I tried trading with them to make them happy, one started throwing off green stars and the other had purple circles, but no hearts.

    I'm thinking I messed up the doors.

    I put up 30 doors total most of them around a 2 block high stand with a door on each side. Is this sufficient? Or how can I better make it so they count as a house?

    I saw the guys on the PC's can activate something that shows them how many villagers they have and how many houses, but I don't suppose you can do that on xbox.

    I've been watching videos, but I'm afraid that with 1.9 some of the mechanics might be different than older youtube videos.


    Is there anything to their living quarters that they can't be trapped maybe?


    Thanks in advance!



    Try putting making the block between the doors more like a normal roof... say a 3-wide block strip with 2 air blocks under it and doors running along under the outside rows of blocks. Offhand, I don't know what is wrong with the doors, but I do know this long skinny house arrangement works and allows the villagers to play with the doors, which seems to keep them happier. In the past, the villagers have been quite happy being trapped, but this update was quite a change to their AI, so there may be something indeed going on regarding confinement. Villagers have been rebreeding and repopulating my golem farm continuously on their own, but they do have a liberal amount of space in which to move and free access to potato and carrot gardens (no wheat - I throw bread at them occasionally). I've blocked them from all the doors for now to see if that has an impact.

    What is the combat update?


    PC Version 1.9 (currently still in snapshot/debugging phase)... lots of debates have been going on about it for the last several months in the PC section... contains changes to a number of the combat mechanics in the game... oh, and I think, Steve gets two arms (lol).

    posted a message on Draining Ocean Monuments
    Quote from IAMBaldur888»

    Just to offer another alternative. Fill everything with wool, have fire spreads on, light it up and burn the blocks away. Typically though I use the sand method described above. BUT the burning wool blocks over the entire ocean monument is much more satisfying to watch.


    I like it... but you do have to place each wool block (i.e. wool is not affected by gravity and doesn't drop like sand). It would be nice if we did have one block that was affected by gravity that could burn (or explode)... a depth charge?.

    posted a message on Feeling the Pull of PC
    Quote from DrAtomic1»

    A good argument, I think that one of the main issues with what you describe as unwillingness to forge own designs is a total lack of support tools that allow you to do so; i.e. check light levels, check mob counts, check entity counts, check... well you get the point. We're basically limited to visual testing in creative; no means of pure abstract testing. That certainly doesn't help the case. Another thing that certainly doesn't help the case is poor documentation if at all; most documentation is simply documentation of the PC mechanics.

    With regards to redstone, I think you have a valid point. 4J should have been allowed to write bugless redstone code and add in something like a buddetector block to circumvent the lack of essential mechanisms such as buddetectors and maybe clock blocks that are resilient to chunk loading/unloading. Instead they were forced to recreate the buggy code flavored with their own bugs. IMHO there are two things at work there, for starters 4J loves catering to the silent youngster creative mode players and as a result redstone has a lighter focus and secondly they are bound to design flaws by Mojang (North-South orientation anyone).

    I'm curious how the PE/WIN10 version is implementing redstone; are the following the port all the design flaws and bugs over to the new redstone code or are they taking the functional rewrite and fix approach? For all we know 4J might be on borrowed time and MS may have a roadmap that includes the rewritten cross platform PE/WIN10/X1 version with realms that will replace the current 4J port.

    One thing that 4J really is shining in imho is their interface design with the exception of sprint; but the crafting interface remains a thing of beauty.

    Agree 100%
