Hows your Minecraft base coming along? I was finally able to start colonizing the other side of the river with villagers

Bump. Going to take a screenshot and post mine later.

OP I want screenshots but I have nothing to share myself.

Here's my survival house and it's coming along nicely. I just need to finish the walls, and then the roof. This is about as fancy as I would get in Survival.

I just wanted to make a fucking chicken farm

>>474140108
What do you want out of the chicken farm? Just eggs constantly spammed out of a dispenser, onto a hopper, to make more eggs? Or do you want more?

>have to place torch on every inch of land to stop monsters spawning in your base
who thought this was a good ideaa? how has it gone unsolved for so long? Do you know how tedious it is to have to light up every tile on a village? Do you realise how shit the village looks once you spammed torches everywhere? WHY IS THERE NO SOLUTION TO THIS HOW OLD IS THIS GAME
>>
>>474140371
a hopper picks up eggs made from a bunch of chickens on top of a slab and puts it into a dispenser which fires the eggs, some of them hatch and when they grow up they get hit with a click of lava which will set them on fire and the cooked chicken falls into another hopper which goes into a chest
I've been trying to figure this out for a while without just looking up a complete design
>>
>>474140653

There are many strong sources of light that have much better range than torches. Stop being so poor and make some lampposts with them.
>>
>>474141514
WOW 1 EXTRA LIGHT STRENGTH
and then put the torches high up on a lamp post to lose another 3 tiles of perimeter on the ground!
Problem solved thanks anon
By the way this is sarcasm, the problem IS NOT SOLVED

Never had a problem with this, just placed a torch here and there and mobs werent spawning. I think you legit have autism, but not that kind of high functioning autism that makes you efficient, but the kind that makes you incredibly obnoxious to other people.
>>
>>474141206
The hopper+dispenser setup is pretty easy by itself, just having the hopper feed into an upwards facing dropper and a dispenser both attached to a clock. Also handling the production of chicken is... somewhat more difficult. You could do something like this:
>Grown-up chickens lay eggs, eggs are put into a buffer chest.
>Once the egg chest is full (using a comparator to check), chickens are killed and their meat is sorted away from the egg chest.
>Once the hopper is empty of meat (another comparator), the egg-chest is emptied into a dispenser and the eggs create new chickens
>Repeat
As long as you know how to make the parts required it shouldn't be too difficult.
>>
>>474142085
I have the basic design down to the point where I can get baby chickens next to the lava dispenser but I have no idea how to detect either when they grow up or to do a single click of lava rarely
I'm doing this underground so something like a daylight detector is out of the question

Install a mod to disable skyniggers, stay away from water to avoid waterniggers. Or disable both.
>>
>>474142063
>>474142178
okay let's talk about this objectively
in order to prevent mobs spawning in a large area, you have to litter the ground with light sources. This looks very ugly and takes a lot of time and effort. I even have to resort to using a mod which shows where mobs can spawn depending on light level to ensure there is no bit of ground left unlit.
I think this is poor gameplay and I think there should be another method of marking terrirory. Sorry for whiiiiiining
Sorry for being a faaaaaggot
Sorry for being aaautiiiiistiiiiic
This is just what I think
Okay? :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :£ :£ :£ £:3:3: 3:£ :3 :3
>>
>>474142360
>>474142193
Remember that only grown-up chickens lay eggs, and you need eggs to make new chickens. Use that to your advantage. I wouldn't recommend having separate hoppers for eggs and meat.

I'm just really tired and stressed
>>
>>474142542
f3 shows light level, I think stuff below 8 spawns mobs but I'm probably wrong
put torches on top of fence posts
>>474142591
It's like I have a bunch of chickens on top of hoppers which lead into a dispenser which fires eggs onto a slab on top of a hopper leading into a chest
Since dispensed eggs can hatch that's what I'm relying on to make baby chickens
Right next to the slab is a lava dispenser to kill off the chickens
>>
>>474142974
It's okay anon, just remember that if people on the internet disagree with you it's no reason to lose your composure. Maybe just turn off the computer and go to sleep.
>>
>>474142360
The first thing that comes to mind is that baby chickens can fit through slightly smaller spaces than full grown chickens (like the space between a fence and a wall, and maybe a single block of height where a full grown one needs 1.5) so you could maybe make a chicken grate where only full grown chickens can make it to the other side. Then a pressure plate in front of your lava dispenser on the other side. A more involved solution would be to wait to start the frying process until the chickens are all grown and just fry all the fuckers, firing up your egg dispenser at the same time with the same lever as the lava.

Never messed with liquid in a dispenser so idk about that part.
>>
How do you get villagers to colonize our areas?
>>
>>474143221
you can put a lava bucket in a dispenser and you can take it in/out based on an input
>>
>>474142975
You only need a single cube of chicken space to make this work, I'm quite sure. But anyway, I've given you my ideas on the matter, and I am going to bed, so good luck. Maybe I'll get a chance to see what you've made in a future thread.
>>
>>474143260
you need to manually herd them there
>>
>>474142542
Why is it that you need such a crazy area lit anyway? If it's for building, light an area bigger than mob aggro range. If it's for house safety, extend the range past your buildings. Set it to peaceful if your going to have some sort of fit over your shit being blown up by creepers which is what it sounds like.

>nerf/discourage beds
>remove/rework phantoms
>more underground content

Admittedly there's not a lot I can think to ask for. My issue with Minecraft is that "Survival" is no longer an issue, once you get three pieces of wool you're set. I want to go back to the old early beta days where I had to build my base with a spider-proof roof, and glass windows to view any Creepers clinging to base wall. I want to have to build a moat around my base again. If I actually actively avoid using beds in 1.14, the game punishes me with annoying Phantoms. It should be the other way around.
>>
>>474143742
I think it's just that we've gotten much better at the game, which is why it feels less like "survival" and more like "conquer" now
>>
>>474143678
Lock them inside with dirt, with ferry them to your own base where it's a controlled environment.
>>
>>474143742
>nerf/discourage beds
>remove/rework phantoms
Why not just remove phantoms? Beds are already kindof a sacrifice as you're skipping night time exp.

Phantoms are a pleb filter, finally something that adds more challenge to the game and gives more purpose to sleeping than just skipping night. I would rather have the squid mob though.

>>
>>474145515
I don't know if I should call it thematic. I mean like its a lot more story based.

In multiplayer, I build a cult room with red carpet and dim lighting leading to my nether portal. I'll make a bar where I brew potions, with barrels and store rooms.

In Single player I build the nether portal behind my library cause it makes sense. I make some nice looking balconies and a ton of glass windows.

I respect mods but the bulk of them are too autistic and change the flow of the game drastically. It's a shame vanilla blows ass and has no future going forward (especially for java).

>>474146282
You can slap down a base in seconds?
building under ground requires you to mine the area, then replace the walls with the desired material.

This exponentially increases the more space you want.
And minecraft still doesn't have anything efficient for removing space outside tnt which requires more effort to make than clear the area.
>>
>>474142542
Literally just build on a mooshroom biome you underage discord tranny.
>>
>>474145861
So you mean you prioritize a more aesthetic appeal on MP? Interesting. In the server we're running right now we worked out functional stuff first, and now that we have a good flow of resources we're starting to build shit like separate houses and individual building projects.
SP on the other hand, since I have no clear goal I always try to make nice-looking things right off the bat, and don't really obsess over function.
>>
>>474146896
>So you mean you prioritize a more aesthetic appeal on MP

Comftorable aesthetics in single player.
Story driven and lived in feel in MP.

its actually kind of nice cause the people I play with are all about building huge castles and organized store rooms. while I cover it in vines and tapestry.

>>474142872
this isnt just 1.15 wishlist but a wishlist for the game in general
>another underwater hostile mob, doesn't have to be the squid from the 1.13 poll, but more mobs would be great, maybe something like a Shark mob
>more mob species, similar to Husks and Strays, but for other mobs like the Creeper
>more weapons, the last two added from the previous updates are great, and more options for combat is always a good thing
>more bosses, would love it if they added one that can only spawn or be spawned in the nether
>more ores, some being biome exclusive like Emerald
>more work on caves, caves match the biomes they're in, as in a cave in an ice biome would have icicles, as well as unique cave biomes
>nether villages in the style of 1.14 overworld villages
