Do we need to speak friend to enter?

Yes.

Maybe I should make a giant lake outside with Cthulhu in it.

grrr, I need to get home so I can get going on the server. Unfortunately, I logged on briefly during my lunch break and just moved around but when I tried to break some sand it always would just reform. :(.

So, here's the tower I built on Paskil's server. I got bored, so I stopped going higher with it.

Here's the original obelisk, with my epic super mine behind it on the server I've been spending most of my time on.

I should have checked this topic earlier >_<

After spending the vast amount of time this weekend playing (literally 6+ hours each day) on Single Player survival, I have come up with some helpful (maybe?) tips.

-Monsters.

Monsters only spawn at night outside*, and when they get hit with sunlight, skeletons and zombies burst into flame. They don't die immediately, but take damage over time. Creepers won't burst into flames - they will stay up during the day. Spiders also stay up but will not attack unless it is night time or you hit them first. Zombies are slow, skeletons are a little quicker, creepers move fast, and spiders can run as fast as you. All of these can spawn underground, as well as slimes (which are buggy on my server - they don't die when hit, nor do they split). *Monsters will not spawn in well-lit places. Place a lot of torches unless you want friends around... especially in caves!

Creepers are awesome, I love dying by them usually because it is SO unexpected it makes me jump out of my skin. "Sssssss... BOOM!" Damn you creepers! However, creepers are also the only source of gunpowder in the game - but they cannot explode or they don't drop any. And note: if a creeper "blows up" in water, it only does HP damage to anyone nearby - it does not blow up blocks.

Which lead me to make a monster trap. Basically I run around the countryside, lure monsters after me, and jump into my trap. I sit inside as all the monsters drown, and the current from the water trap brings them to me. Problem is, I kinda suck at it and have died a ton. Oh well.

-Farming.

I love trees, so much that I made a massive treehouse several floors high. Trees will grow (as far as I know) as long as they have light (torches nearby lets them grow faster), at least 5 or so blocks of empty space above them, and they are not in the shadow of other things (ground, trees, stone). They do NOT NEED water. Wheat, on the other hand, does. Cacti only need sand and some space (1 block in between). No idea about reeds, I still have yet to try growing them.

-Monster generators.

I've found two. Sometimes underground you'll find a natural cavern that ends with mossy cobblestone, a chest, and a monster generator. The generator will spawn constantly, unless you surround all 8 block around it with torches. Doing so you can make a drowning trap nearby, and set up the current to have a lot of fun. As in, afk for a few hours near your skeleton trap, and come back to have several stacks of arrows. I love the bow!

-PLacing blocks. Hold down Shift to creep. You can walk right up to an edge without falling off; making it easy to place blocks. I die SO much less often now thanks to this.

-Underwater base

I made a pretty awesome one and am still expanding. It has a tree farm, a grain farm, flowers, and all glass walls and ceilings. Once you get used to crafting underwater (ie, digging out a block and shoving in glass before the water gushes in), it's really easy and addicting.

-Water Elevator

Remember how I said I had a massive tree house? And an underwater base? HUGE height difference... so I made a water elevator about, oh, 50 blocks high. Check out a video to get an idea on how it works. Sure, I COULD have used ladders to climb up... but the elevator is so much cooler.

-Materials

Stone is quick and plentiful to find. I use stone tools almost exclusively just because of that. Iron is tough to find, and I'm saving up for minecar tracks. Gold is worthless for crafting. Diamond is pretty good, but SO rare. So stone it is, and one iron pick for mining diamond if I find it. I have heard of three effective mining techniques - parallel mining, drift mining, and pocket mining. Parallel is time consuming but looks good. Basically go in one direction for as long as you want mining out a 3x3 area, then go back, go over 5 blocks, and do it again, same direction. Drift mining is using TNT, and looks like SO much fun that I'm saving up gunpowder to try it. Look up videos on it, it's so fun looking! Pocket mining I just heard about today - basically the idea is that materials come in veins, so you mine a pocket around the ore you find, then find another, and keep doing so. Ore almost always comes in pockets.

-Flint

Just figured this out yesterday while making arrows. Flint is a random (20%, maybe?) drop from mining gravel. If you find a large amount of gravel, dig it all up, place it down, dig it all up again. Each time it's a 20% chance to get flint, so you can do this a lot before running out. Got me about 30 flint in 10 minutes. Perfect for arrows!

That's it for now, might try to log on Paskil's server tonight, but it sucks not being able to fight or take damage from monsters. I love that thrill!

Never thought about replacing the gravel and hitting it again... brilliant! I've been collecting feathers because I want to try a bow, so this sounds very useful :).

Heck yes! It's probably the fastest way to get arrows. The skeleton generator + drowning trap worked great for me too, but that takes longer overall. OTOH, you can afk the entire time, go do something for a few hours, and come back to a few stacks of arrows :-P

It's not a security feature or anything; it just needs to download the program files first, then you can play.

Site is still down. :(

On the plus side, it gave me time to work on my huge tower that will be above my underground base. I just can't decide how I want to finish the tower. Currently it's a massive staircase... do I want to surround it with a new outside that goes all the way up, or do I just want the outside to be a staircase?

Its amazing reading the number of people hating on the Creator because the game is a bit rough around the edges and unreliable. This is the alpha of a game that has been made by one person and has suddenly become an internet phenomenon with tens of thousands of players. The fact that the game still functions at all is amazing.

Very true, this is just the alpha so far. Still, I can understand being annoyed if you've been looking forward to it. My issue is the infinite health on multiplayer survival. It's no fun, IMO. But being alone gets old too... even if creepers are a blast (pun!)

Ebany, was that your house with the sign "Hands off my chest!" XD

Also, I covered Ikkian and Paskil with sand :) And found diamonds, which Ikkian totally failed to mine properly (need iron or higher or you get nothing from them).

i decided to torrent it last night so i could at least try out single player and get an idea of what to do before they get their site working.

I watched a 'getting started' video on youtube and got me a shovel and pick and the next thing i know the sun is going down. So i panicked and dug a little 1x2 hole and sealed myself up in it. no torch, no nothin. couldnt see anything. Would take a block out from time to time to see if the sun was up yet. Im not entirely sure how serious the darkness was, on the default difficulty. I didnt see anything out of the ordinary, though i did hear some weird noises.

The next day i just kinda dug. and dug some more. found some coal and made some torches so i could be a little more comfortable in my cave during the night.

I didnt get too attached to what i was doing since it was only temporary, but it was surprisingly funny being holed up in complete and total darkness during the night with no indication of which way was up.

You may want to dig your safety hole in a cliff wall next time. That way you can leave one square open to see what's going on outside with worrying about a mob falling in.

Still can't connect to Paskil's, but I was able to bring up my single player map onto a server. I haven't done nearly as much as Paskil, but if anyone wants to check it out the IP should be 192.168.1.117 (works for me, but I'm not sure if it's the appropriate address). Look for a path of torches that will take you over a couple hills to my base.

After the first time this happened, I built a path of torches to my spawn point :P.

I don't plan on venturing off too far until I can build a compass... I just have to figure out where some redstone is first :(.

Yes, but as I said I built a path of torches from the respawn point to my base so I can always get from one to the other. With the compass, I can get back to the spawn point no matter where I wander... without having to die and lose everything :P.

After the first time this happened, I built a path of torches to my spawn point :P.

I don't plan on venturing off too far until I can build a compass... I just have to figure out where some redstone is first :(.


That's a great idea, I'm going to do that. I even have a red stone and some iron!

Only... they're in the chests in my house. Smiley: glare

The green veined rock is just mossy cobblestone. It can only be found surrounding monster dungeons and is only used for aesthetic purposes.

Building a few towers covered in raw wood and flinting them is much easier to see than the same with torches.

Always build your base near your respawn point, if not on it. Build a compass. You will never get lost again.
