Local difficulty.

I seem to have crashed it. Whups. Not sure why; I logged in after stepping away to do science in creative (trying to figure out a good way to drop undead monsters into Mordor without hurting them). When I logged in I started a record playing, grabbed some books, and prepared to leave myself...

Re: Minecraft

Sometimes when my (convenient) laptop's running a bit hot and I'm Minecrafting, I am a bit surprised that jumping in water doesn't help it cool off. I've finished the cobble-laying of my sky! Now I've put up a border of netherrack around the top, have lined it with wood, and am slowly working my way...

Re: Minecraft

Regarding Mordor and Fiddlers Green: There is an undesirable side effect of the server command block that kills creepers - zombies pick up the gun powder and thus will never despawn. Overtime this will crowd out other mobs that do despawn. At Fiddlers Green you also need to wall off the caves that ...
