  • What would attract an Enderman into a pit? sudo rm -rf

    I'm working on an Enderman farm that really hasn't been done before and I'm fairly excited about it, but I've run into a hitch. I've experimented around until I found a way to get Endermen to reliably teleport to a floating pad, which can be seen here:

    I'm now wanting these guys to go down into the hole you can see in the middle of the pad. Unfortunately they seem to be avoiding it as much as possible. What would be a good way to trick them into thinking the hole is a solid block so that they might be tempted to walk into it? I thought that perhaps trap doors or ladders could be used to some extend due to their hitboxes being unique, but I'm not entirely sure. Any ideas on this?

    Edit: After experimenting with torches a bit, it seems like they slowly edge away from light sources, meaning if I place light around key areas on the edge they should be driven straight to the center. It seems to be helping so far, at least in some limited testing.

    Edit 2: I have been looking at the decompiled version of the game code and I haven't found a great deal. From a quick glance it seems that Endermen simply behave as any other mob when they are not in the random teleportation state. And that means they should have a random path applied at random times, which means the light levels shouldn't matter. This doesn't match up with what I've observed though, so maybe I missed something in my quick pass thorough the code.

  • The usual way to do this (for any mob) is put open trap doors in the pit. Mobs avoid falls now, but will treat trap doors as walkable blocks regardless of whether they're open or closed, wander over them, and fall.

  • Try using sticky pistons rigged to pull the floor out from underneath the endermen. This can be done if you are tricky enough with redstone contraptions. If you don't know how to use redstone in this way there are plenty of youtube videos, and the minecraft wiki can fill you in on the basics of redstone.

  • If you put pressure plates connected to pistons, when the enderman walk onto the pressure plates they will set off the piston's causing them to fall into the pit.

  • So I am playing Amnesia: The Dark Decent and figured out pretty quickly that light is an important commodity, as you can use it to recover your sanity, amongst other things. So I've been wondering, How do you preserve your light sources? Specifically, I mean coal, oil and other things that generates light. For example, this is what I've been doing when I arrive in a new place that I never... have to recover your sanity quick). Is this a good technique? Is there a better way of preserving light sources whilst not compromising safety?

  • I have been playing around with the visual presentation settings to my personal preference... but I can't seem to change the camera view that is shown when I put the ball ( the action of the ball rolling to the hole ). The camera seems to be random but from my experiences, the camera angle is shown from where the fans are standing (next to the green) - which IMHO ruins the intense/thrilling part of the putt. How can I change this angle to be shown of more from an eagle's eye or above the ball view ? I will try to post a picture of what I am talking about soon.

  • I've been playing Super Meat Boy on OS X, from Steam. I'd like to save a copy of some of my replays, but I can't find the keyboard shortcut.

What's the keyboard shortcut? edit: Pressing causes this guy to appear in the corner for a second: I'm not sure what this means but my list of replays remained empty so it seems like something else.

But I can't find anything else to light on fire, nor any dark

  • I've been trying to get the TF2 client to run on my machine. It starts and runs, but so slowly that even navigating the menus is pretty painful.

  • Okay, slimes will now spawn in swamp biomes. Nowhere really said if they had any other requirements beyond low light (>8 (which if I remember correctly, is math for less than eight) ) I built an 8x8 pad 5 blocks down from the skycap in a swamp, verified with f3. It had zero light and enough space for any size to spawn (enough for all but large slimes at the very least). All I had a show up few Endermen. No slimes did. Any thoughts or ideas? Or better yet any code miners have a great tidbit that I am missing? I'm using vanilla Minecraft 1.6 prerelease in survival mode without cheats. P.S.
