Re: Minecraft

Has one of the recent updates changed anything about mob-spawning? I have on multiple occasions now found Zombies in the crop farms at the Arcology, which according to everything I know of mob spawning rules shouldn't be possible. Not that I'm aware of. There must be either some non-farmland low-li...

It appears that the server didn't go through the upgrade to 1.13 entirely unscathed. The rail tunnel from Plains City to the Bloop is flooded in parts. It's unclear why some of it was affected but not all. I also suspect similar things might have happened to other underwater tunnels elsewhere on th...

Re: Minecraft

To be honest, all I know is that minecraft has a team and score system and you can store whatever NBT data you want in players and items. And with command blocks you can e.g. increment your Mordor Level if you press a button at a quest's end. Ahh, I understand - that is how many custom maps are don...
