RowboatMan: Freezing time is an old P.I. trick...

You can easily limit the size yourself with the /worldborder command.

It's a small difference, but in the console version, the borders are always at the edge of an ocean, so your world is completely surrounded by impassable water. I kind of prefer that to an invisible wall with actual terrain beyond it.

Has anyone explored the new ocean biomes in the latest snapshot? Once I get the ingredients to make the potions you need to do all the exploring (unless I'm missing something) I want to use those ingredients for other things so never get there sadly.

Btw, Mojang just hired a new developer, so maybe development will go slowly instead of glacially.

avoid the latest snaphot. 18w19a was killing old worlds, with 19b fixed. but 19b has an issue on multiplayer where you cant swim or float anything in water (like ride in a boat)

also I am getting issues crashing loading new chunks.

both are confirmed bugs but the swimming has a work around

Yeah it's unplayable single player as well. Hope for a new snapshot on Wednesday.

I had never heard of the "Education Edition Chemistry" resource pack coming out with it. I recognize on reading about it that it's for interactive children's science courses and probably won't have much in terms of gameplay where most people's games/survival mode is concerned, but it sure looks neat, and feels like a clever idea.

New PiroPito video starts off very upsetting.

I think he still hasn't realized there's a time limit on loose items before they despawn.

Thanks for playing Alone in the dark 2.

Now please fuck off


Wow, I'm not a least bit surprised at what he's going to use the shulker boxes for

It's extremely frustrating that he didn't even try to look for it properly, like it's probably in his nether wart farm or something

For anyone who isn't watching but wants to hear what the crazy kid is up to, he got shulker shells, figured out what shulker boxes do, and predictably is excited because this means he can carry a lot more cobblestone with him and this will make it a lot easier to build his very long bridge.

I thought he swapped out the bridge for glass? Or was that just to reorient it?

Why the gently caress is he just standing there peering over the edge like 30 blocks away? This actually made me feel frustrated just watching it.

RowboatMan: Freezing time is an old P.I. trick...


I just installed the Windows 10 version on my wife's 7 year old laptop and goddamn the game runs like an absolute dream. She and I have been playing the game since 2010, though we stopped for a few years after having kids. Recently, we were feeling the desire to fire it back up, but my pc is still packed away from our latest move, so we just had the one laptop that was always really slow with the game anyway, but now, holy poo poo.

Also, I absolutely love the fact that it was extremely easy for me to log in to the world via the mobile version of MC on my phone. Whenever we get a Switch, Minecraft will likely be a day 1 purchase on there (especially if the Better Together update is there).

Strong kudos to Microsoft for streamlining all of this poo poo; I don't care about mods, so I'm perfectly fine with it vanilla. With my son starting to get interested in it, I love how simple it's all become for us to play together.

Quick question: has anyone here ever used an Xbox 360 controller (natively, without some 3rd party app) to play this version?

Yes I have. If win 10 recognizes the controller, then MC will as well. If it's a legit MSoft controller and not an afterglow, it should work just fine. I have both, and had to do some finagling back when win 10 was new. Now I think it's streamlined for aftermarket controllers too.

I pretty much only play on iOS because the rewritten Minecraft code is so much better there than the Java edition even ran on my gaming PC. Iím pretty sure itís giving me a repetitive stress injury, but it really is good software.

Very aggravating in Creative mode, due to accidentally breaking blocks when all you meant to do was turn slowly.

I don't know what it is, but I can't stand the 'feel' of Windows 10 edition. Like, how the camera moves when you turn, jump, etc. It feels gummy compared to Java.

Agreed. I constantly get input lag in the Microsoft version, which is weird since it runs better in absolutely ever other regard.

I've lost count of the number of times I've been creeped running around in caves when I mash 3 to get to my bow only to find that lol nope didn't switch weapons get rekt.

At first I thought I was just loving up, but it's happened consistently on Win 10 and never once ever since alpha 1.3 in the Java versions
