Another day another cube...


Minecraft Demo

Today I tried to access my Minecraft account but I forgot the password so I changed it and when I logged back in it was in demo mode even though it wasn’t the last time I played it, because I bought it.

One of the possible reasons for this happening is that I’m not using the email I used when I bought the game, I just changed it a long time ago when I tried to change it back to the original email it said it was denied.

So it looks like something is wrong with accounts and it’s forcing my Minecraft in demo mode. Did anyone experienced that? Is there a fix?

Minecraft low FPS?

So I hosted a lan session, Minecraft server, with only one friend and I have a pretty powerful computer, nVidia RTX 2080, Intel Core I7 8086k 4GHz and minecraft client usually runs at about 1000 FPS. However, when my friend joined it went to 40 FPS.

Any ideas? Should I try optifine? Does anyone else hosting Minecraft servers have the same issue? If so did you sort it out?

Btw we’re hosting 1.8 Minecraft servers cause they’re the best.

Moving survival base?

I just started playing after watching some pewdiepie and realizing how much stuff has changed in past few years, it’s awesome. I hadn’t played since it first launched on the console and now I’m on the java edition so it’s like a whole new Minecraft game for me. I love it.

I just created a really nice base that I really like a lot but I’ve went on long journeys and my Minecraft seed is kinda bad. But I didn’t know if it was possible to like copy my home base and then paste it on a new seed, can that be done? I saw some stuff like World Edit etc but that’s only for Multiplayer servers? I’m playing offline in single player.

The best Steam Controller configuration

I map as many buttons to the controller as possible. I do this to make playing easy.

I set scroll wheel for toolbar and scrolling menu.

Bumpers are for loading and saving toolbar in creative mode. I figured loading is used more frequently than saving, so I put loading toolbar on right bumper.

I also map jumping to left grip, so that you can jump while aiming.

The keyboard is buggy though, it inputs 2 letters with one press. It will be better if the bug is fixed.

Note that you can add other controls to the radial menu.

Unable to find buried treasure chests?

I’m playing on a Minecraft realm my friend made recently (made sometime after the aquatic update) I’ve used two different treasure maps I’ve found and am unable to find the chest for either of them I even resorted to using the locate command to find the exact coordinates of both, and dug down to bedrock at both locations without a chest being there Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

I’m tired of wasting water breathing and night vision potions only to find bedrock and I’m kinda getting tired of this…

Is it possible that we lost our stuff?

Having issues configuring my Minecraft server! Need Help!

So I have a physical server that I have purchased and loaded Ubuntu on. I have the Minecraft server setup and I can connect to it myself, however the issue is getting other to connect. I have attempted the port forwarding and made multiple restarts as well as allowing exceptions through my firewall both on this PC and the Ubuntu server. Any thoughts? I use a Netgear Nighthawk X10 router and have Verizon.

Any advice to get better at building?

I see people build detailed structures, and really want to do that too, but I don’t know where to start. Has anyone got any advice to build better?

Don’t look no more:

  • Watch some you tubers who explain how they do it and steps to take, its helped me a ton. Grian is my personal favorite for building stuff
  • Looking at other people’s structures help! I’d suggest checking out the minecraft tag on tumblr. Or looking at a few servers to see their buildings! 🙂
  • Try different shapes! Not every building has to be symmetrical. Don’t always build box houses
  • Find inspiration and experiment A LOT!

Packing Cube Alternatives

Packing folders: Packing folders are very rigid, which makes them good for things like business shirts and slacks. They are worth a try depending on your travel needs. I had purchased one years ago before my first backpacking trip, but when it came time to pack up and go, I left it behind.

Compression bags: These bags can reduce the space your stuff takes up by compressing the contents. They are great for things like puffy jackets and bulky clothing items. At HPL we compared four different brands of compression sacks so you can choose the right one.

Shoe bags: Shoe sized bags that protect your clothing from the soles of your shoes. Some people use them for laptop and camera cables and chargers instead. They’re also good for undergarments.

Zipper pouches: I tend to use an extremely lightweight zipper pouch for socks and underwear, and I also pack a 2nd one to store my dirty clothes.
