#37453 Portals.

Posted by Moardawts on 28 January 2015 - 05:02 AM

3 month resets on the nether with only 1 portal!  Mark my words: Glowstone is going to be very very hard to come by.  Rollback technology a generation.  We'll be more reliant on torch lighting.

 

Surely glowstone shouldn't be an easy thing to get a hold of to start with? :) it's too shiny!

 

Make villagers. Trade for emeralds. Trade for glowstone. Never step foot in the nether again. 

 

 

 

TL;DR You pre-program a route using items inside of chestcarts that will allow you to AFK an entire trip.

 

It's too bad this post didn't get more attention. This system is so beautiful *praises own work*

 

I'm not sure folks realize how much time is lost during transfers. I've always welcomed train rides as an opportunity to take a break from minecraft while I travel. Coffee/teabreak and play with my dog time.

@ topic

 

I might suggest a sort of alternative idea... I realize that this wouldn't work super well for the current implementation of SG but perhaps in the next iteration. 

 

* Make the map smaller, considerably smaller. Do some tests, whatever the maximum comfortable travel length in a minecart is. Maybe 2000 x 2000 instead of 10,000 x 10,000. 

* To make up for the loss of land mass due to smaller size, layer more build worlds parallel to the primary world in the same way the wilds/nether are laid out. IE have portals at the center/fringes. 

* Parallel build worlds have other potential upshots: different build rules per realm, possibility to have biome themed realms (mostly desert, mostly ice, etc), etc.

* Major downside: if there are a lot of parallel build realms we may see a ton of portals per station. Unintended consequences performance wise?

I don't really watch a lot of youtube but when I do it's something like this.

And I don't have a favorite food.

 

What do you like to do in your free time, sorry if I missed it I just skimmed your app.

 

Such adult musical taste!

 

I prefer Ke$ha:

I love science! I'm excited to hear about your line of work moardawts, I've always wondered if you could genetically modify a tiger to breed one which could fit in a tea-cup? If so I'll die happy. I'm totally willing to overlook the ethical and legal complications of this if you want to start a business? We could make cocaine to fund it, I have lecture notes on that somewhere.

 

My degree was actually Chem with biochem, so I like a bit of biology too. I currently analyse pesticides and herbicides and stuffs, so my role is basically to kill your mutant rat creations! Unfortunately I haven't seen breaking bad... I'm told I should watch it, but I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to films :/

 

You can, but I fear the easiest path to success would just be through breeding using introgression -- hybridize with another species that is already very small then breed back with the original line. Multiple rounds of this would lead to a very, very small tiger. From there we could start being really unethical by giving it genetic disorders that force it to stay small. And if we are really just going to throw out ethics we could give it a really poor diet.

 

As it turns out I've worked on glyphosate (round up, a commonly used herbicide in the states) resistance in horseweed and pigweed. These are some really nasty weeds in the states for a lot of our big crops in the southeast. 

 

Don't watch Breaking Bad. And let's not use cocaine... because seriously: don't watch Breaking Bad. Just sell innate, harmless chemicals as a catchall, "organic", all-natural solution to weight loss. We'll make billions.
