You need a creative way to start a fire I guess. It's not going to be easy. I guess you could stand in it and see if the fireballs the Ghasts shoot will start it up for you.

I'm not sure they will and that's about all I can think of. Another problem is the fireballs explode so you'd need to get out of the way.

I got stuck once. The portal closed as I went to it for some reason, probably because I saved and quit while I was in there. I'm think this is how I got out of there. Also after it I aways have the flint and steel with me where ever I go.

Edit: This way will probably convince you to forge some armour at the same time.

I'll try the Ghast fireball thingy, it sounds dangerous and fun.

I wouldn't mind dying usually but I've got my diamond pick on me this time and it's the only one I have.

There is a program you an use to hack your inventory.

I find it rather funny that you got yourself stuck in the nether. If you kill yourself, you could always go back and pick up your things.

Yes, well I did kill myself, ghast fireball failed.

Today has been full of minecraft fail, I managed to burn my tower down, well the half that isn't obsidian. I'm never making a wooden base again.

haha, you should build out of stone... or glass.

Once my bro was mining with TNT, and one of his TNT boxes exploded and launched another box into his huge cathedral, obliterating one of the walls.

How did you manage to burn it down?

Also yeh, that's why I skipped wood (but eventually came back to it for some reason ). Went from a dirt fort straight to a stone one. Back then I thought the Creepers could start a fire with their explosion.

Edit: I also set my first little wood house on fire. Got a mod that allows me to make elemental arrows and I was shooting at a creeper hiding around it (it's like all of the other monsters don't even bother with me sometimes) it died but I shot one too many, it just happened to be that I was using the fire ones.

I put the fire out after losing a bit of it (just punch the fire out with left click (that's how you solve most problems in Minecraft. )).

Its easy, have lave flowing over your walls, excellent pest control.

Finally updated to the Beta, only problem is the mod items I have in my world prevents me from loading my world as they are no longer supported. >_>

Luckily I do have it on another machine so might be able to fix it up there so I can load it in the Beta. I had just finished a new base with working plumbing as well.

Time to hunt some squids.

So world is gone, but kind of fixed it up by giving myself one of each of the diamond tools and some gold with Invedit. As a way of getting myself over the little bump of losing everything and having to consider living in some hole in a cliff for a while.

After having a base underwater, floating in the sky, with a minecart train to pretty much everywhere, actual indoor plumbing (no idea why just thought to give it a go and it's too annoying to consider redoing at some point and it does pretty much nothing, I could throw a useless block into it and it would be swept all the way out of the base but it's not worth it for that purpose alone) it's kind of disappointing to think of.

That castle video LL posted also inspired me to get to work.

So using the stuff I mentioned before I dug down into the ground to get some lava, which I used to make a Cobblestone machine. Which meant I could get started on this.


Thus I completed one of the competitions between me and my brother in this game, I made an entrance room bigger than his base.

This has been nicknamed the Chair of Awesome, though I think it needs a bit added to it to live up to it.


Made an Aquarium for the Squids, then found out that while they were common in Beta 1.2, they are surprisingly rare in the current 1.2_01 >_>




The base is still being built and I've done a bit since I took these pictures earlier.
This empty space here now has my base's forge with a more fancy version of the Cobblestone machine I've been using to fuel this build.


Also some of the older players may have known but I just literally found it out before taking these screenshots. If you hold F1 the Hud will vanish, as long as you're holding it. F2 will make it take a screenshot. To get to it you have to go to the minecraft folder (for windows go to run then type "%appdata%" and it will be the folder called .minecraft) in there will be all the files and saves and a newly created folder called screenshots that is made when you take the first one.

As for the others I'll list them as this post has been pretty pic heavy so it's my way of apologizing for it.
Holding F3 will make the stats show up, current FPS, CPU, MEM usage etc.
F5 toggles to third-person view
F11 toggles to full screen mode, however the interface seems to have some issues with it when it goes back to the normal windowed mode at times.

Thats awesome, love the aquarium.

I've rebuilt part of my wall to make it straight, remade my obsidian tower, it's now 10x10 base and 10 blocks talls, I'll probally make it taller and build my castle around it, so it's a safe room and lookout tower.

I've got another Nether related problem thought. I went back into the Nether earlier (remembered my Flint and Steel this time), I found a giant lake of lava, construsted a portal next to it. Went back into my world and came out in a cave somewhere underground, what the feth?!?!

Kind of concerned as I only made one portal which is in my fort. Went back and forth a few times and keep coming back into this cave. I've also got no idea how to check what layer i'm on so not sure whether to just dig up.

Love that mansion/base/sea world thing you've built n0t_u I normally go for smaller size constructions, I really ought to get a cobblestone generator built at some point but like mob grinders it's something I never get round to.

Lord_loss if you make a portal in the Nether the game creates a new one in the main world, apparently it's also possible to find random portals in the main world but they are really rare.

What a bunch of balls, i'm going to have to destroy the portal in my world, kill myself, invedit my diamond pickaxe back and move on.

Well now I know, thanks.

Yeh that was happening to me as well. There is some calculation to determine the difference in distance between them, so when you make a new portal in the Nether it makes a new one in the real world the equal distance away.

This is what I was trying to figure out with all those warp jumps I was trying out. I'm not sure but try breaking the portal in the real world then building a new one and going through that. Not entirely sure but it may drop you out of one of your portals in the Nether. Also build a compass as soon as you can you'll likely need it.

When it happened to me I dug myself out of the ground, which first took ages, then I was in some completely new area I hadn't seen before so I needed it to get back to the spawn, which was just a small railway station for me.

Though I had the annoyance of coming out in the exact same cave 3 or 4 times before I dug out, each a new portal.

Here it is, the article that started me off on trying to make a warp system in my world.

This one little line started something that would create so much annoyance.
When re-entering the normal world, any distance covered in The Nether is multiplied by 8, effectively making The Nether a fast travel zone that allows for greater distances to be covered in a short amount of time in the normal world.

I'm trying to remake the rooms in my castle, i've decided i'll prefer several large rooms over like ten small ones, easier to get around and all.

I'll post a picture when it's finished.

How do I make a cobblestone generator?

I'm guessing I use lava and water but i'm not sure on the specifics.

Well you need to shape it so that the lava flows into the water, but the sources will never meet. I'll get a Youtube video as it would make the explanation a bit easier.

However my one is a bit different from a bunch I've seen as I stand in a trench and the water pushes me back and forth to collect the stone so I just have to hold left click and it does the rest.

I'll post the vid in the sec I'm just filtering out the horrid designs.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Alright it was faster than I though, I like this design a bit.
The others had them climb down ladders or climb inside it to gather the stone (all this with the crappiest music produced by man in the last 10ish years), it is far better to have one that sends the stone to you.

Also make sure to turn the volume down for the start, this guys intro is loud.

Note it is a bit big though, mess around with the design a bit because you can make one as compact as 3x3x3 or 4x4x4 if you try hard enough.



Sure its not the best tutorial ever but you'll be able to piece it together mostly just by looking at it.

Might try mossy cobblestone then as it has the same pattern as them. Need to either find a whole ton of dungeons, find out how the normal cobblestone becomes it or just use Invedit.

As far as I know regular cobblestone doesn't become mossy in game, you'll either have to dungeon farm or invedit (boo hiss) I reckon.
