Goddamn this game is crashing more and more often for me. I have 1.9 and everything ran fine for hours before crashing but now its like every 5 minutes. 8gb of ddr3 and my pagefile is fine.

I guess it doesn't help that i'm starting to explore further from spawn now that more of my structures are complete.

I just want to play blocks, notch, why wont you let me play blocks?

I've got a question for anyone that wants to answer it.

I'm trying to make a switch where you throw an item into a pit and water carries that item to a pressure plate. However, I don't want to have the item sit on the plate for ever until it dissolves. I can't seem to figure out how to get the water to push the item past the plate. Can anyone help me out with the solution?

I can't check it right now, but do pistons pop depressed plates? Either that or just a piston just ahead of the plate that blocks the water for a moment, then opens up and pushes the item past.

Pistons destroy pressure plates, so that won't work.

But the bit where the piston opens and lets in more water to direct the item off the switch certainly will.

I've got a permanent host name setup that I can give to anyone who plays a lot.

We've got plugins for teleports/landmarks (its /pw or /pw help for info), sponges, and flying (/fly). Once craftbukkit and 1.9 are out I might install some more plugins.

Some of you may have seen my post about a week ago talkin' about an incomplete function on Minecraft.net that required players with illegal usernames - for example, those with periods, commas, etc - to submit a new login. This function has since been fixed and anyone that was unable to properly log in and change skins/download server JARs can now go ahead and do so.

People who want to change their legal username are still SOL.

Here's a basic mechanism for clearing a plate. You can probably use the plate + repeaters to open and close the pistons.

Just started playing again since the latest update.

I found my first abandoned mineshaft that went forever, and one of the tunnels in it led to this cavernous jaw-dropping cliff that looked out into this giant cave with lava flows everywhere.

Is this normal now with this update? If so, this is amazing.

Hey, I'm the guy that built that big black wool cave leading to the mini nether. I see you have a whitelist now, i tried logging on a moment ago and wasn't allowed. I'd like to come back on, my IP is 71.114.55.89 and my MC name is FP0. Looks like a lot more stuff has sprung up since I was on last.

I think the wool got burned down .. you're right though, theres a lot more stuff. Including a really long train.

Has anyone done that survey graph for the new terrain generation? I'm almost ready to give up and start strip mining for diamond. I've found 2 in caves.

An updated graph would be welcome to dissuade or confirm my suspicions that diamonds are rarer now.

Not that you're the first person to get this wrong, but strip mining invovles mining at the surface. It should probably be called drift mining.

Most people refer to strip mining as the basic dig out a big hole in the ground strategy, even if that's not real world correct.

i wouldn't be surprised if it did, there's lava in the nether I made, it's close to the wool. I'll fix it, no biggy.

I've only just made my first ever portal on my server. But how do you determine how multiple portals work. Would you build a portal at settlement #2. Enter the nether...and try and locate the portal from settlement #1?

Easiest way is to get destination coordinates in the real world, divide them by 8 (you only need to calculate the x and z coordinates, portals seem to ignore y) and then build your portal in the nether to get there.

Conversely, you can build a portal in the exact spot you want in the real world, do the same thing in the nether (with the coordinates divided by 8 again) to get them to link up.

My friend has a lovely netbook with a 1.6GHz Atom and integrated 945-express graphics, and Minecraft is unplayable (like, she gets 2fps). Her dad took her to Best Buy looking for a desktop more suitable for gaming... and they picked up an HP P7-1154. It has a 2.1GHz quad-core AMD A6-3600, integrated Radeon HD 6530D graphics, and 8GBs of DDR3-1060 RAM. Can that play Minecraft 1.9 and the YogBox satisfactorily? (She specifically asked the dude at Best Buy, "Minecraft is sort of CPU-intensive, are you sure this is okay for games like that?", and he laughed at her and said "Of course, Minecraft isn't even a serious game.")

edit: I tried looking up some relevant benchmarks, but the platform is relatively new and I couldn't find any information.

Reaching a steady state in a fluid simulation is hard enough as it is without an infinite world, most of which isn't currently loaded.
