Minecraft

Neat. I usually find it's easier to cure zombie villagers and make them into the various smiths. You can get loads of diamond equipment on the cheap, especially if you have Hero of the Village. Which I do. Because I like fighting pillagers.

I'm going to try that technique though. I wonder if it works in the nether?

Yeah, there are certainly other, easier ways to get diamond equipment- but it's a nice way to find all sorts of ore blocks if you want to silk-touch them and use them a decorative blocks or whatever. Another thing this can be used for is to clear out a slime chunk for a slimeball farm. No need for a beacon and you don't end up with multiple chests of stone/deepslate blocks you have no use for.

And I don't see netherrack listed as a type of block affected by bonemealing moss on the wiki, so I don't think this would work in the nether. Too bad, that'd be a fast way to get ancient debris.

Hi there,
For playing on the GWJ Vanilla server, is there a better choice of Minecraft clients? When I go to install Minecraft I am offered a Java version and a Windows 10 version. Does my choice matter for joining the server?

Sorry for the question, I haven't played Minecraft in 65 years or so it seems. Last new feature I remember was horses.

Thank you!

If you're looking to play on the vanilla server that I'm hosting, you'll definitely need to use the Java client. And no need to apologize; Minecraft versions are some of the most arcane, misunderstood things I've run into in gaming.

Minecraft 1.19 is supposed to drop next week, so the vanilla server is likely to get a reset soon, no?

Q: Who's ready to get wild with Minecraft's The Wild Update?
A: You are!

Gamespot's overview of changes.

Join our server:

Vanilla Minecraft
Version: 1.19
Server connection: GAME-USEAST-01.MTXSERV.COM:27240
Dynmap URL: http://147.135.27.4:27241/#

Summer Games Done Quick is in progress, and one of the runners ran Minecraft 1.19 Java Edition, random seed, glitchless, beating the Ender Dragon in under 1 hour. Extremely impressive.

Is there a copy of the previous 1.18 world available for download?

There's a backup stored on the hosting provider, but unfortunately I can't access it directly - I can only apply the backup to the current world, overwriting whatever is currently there.

Incidentally, I just migrated the server over to PaperMC and installed Dynmap:

Thank you! It's nice being able to see the map

Can anyone spot the path we took to get to the Mangrove Swamp?

No problem. It'll probably take a few more hours to finish rendering the 3d version of the map, and then I'll be able to kick off renders of Nether and The End.

It's a helluva route. Mostly across water even. Y'all must have had mangrove radar or something to cut that path

Guys!!! My oldest Son (7 years old) has been very persistent about minecraft on the Switch! I made some "difficult" challenges for him. I told him if he were to finish Skyward sword (HD on the Switch) and to finish the MASTER TRAIL in BoTW, I would get him Minecraft. I thought I would not happen..... and to my SURPRISE he did. He finished Skyward Sword and COMPLETED that insane Trial in Breath of the Wild... ALL THE DAMN FLOORS for that master sword. I still cannot believe it. Now I HAVE to deliver and keep my promise.

Do you guys think MINECRAFT it is appropriate for a kid his age?

More so than BotW is. I was kind of surprised at how many sexual innuendos were in that game.

That is actually true

I don't think there is a bottom age to minecraft... like I'm happy for my almost two year old to watch it as long as he isn't getting drool all over my keyboard. (For some reason he like to put his hand in his mouth then wipe it on my wrist rest...)

Online multiplayer may be a bit different, but that's easy to monitor at least initially...

The forced switch to Microsoft accounts has been mostly pointless pain, but I hope they use it to improve parental controls. Right now it’s all or nothing for multiplayer based on the birthdate provided for the account. We have separate accounts for both kids and had to lie about their ages to allow them to get online.

My 7 yo adores minecraft it’s pretty much the only game he plays and it’s absolutely appropriate for him. My only problem is his mum when all he wants to talk about at dinner are minecraft recipes…

I couldn't migrate my account until I logged out of my Microsoft account and then logged back in. Took a while to figure that part out.
