  • Do nether strongholds only spawn within a certain radius? Jonathan Drain

    In Minecraft beta, normal strongholds only spawned within a certain distance of 0,0, so they would never appear in a world which was explored beyond that radius.

    In Minecraft 1.0, do nether strongholds have a limit like this, or will they appear at any distance? Can you keep exploring and find unlimited nether strongholds?

  • Nether Fortresses are closer to regular dungeons than they are to strongholds - that is to say, there's no set limit, and they spawn all over the place.

    Here's a picture from AMIDST, a stronghold-finder tool with the Nether Fortress overlay active.

    And here's a picture of another random portion of the same seed.

    There's a definite pattern (though I don't know the exact code) to their position, and it extends in all directions with the map.

  • The latest update to Minecraft: XBox 360 Edition added, among other things, Strongholds. In Minecraft for PC, only 3 strongholds appear per world (see the Stronghold wiki article). But XBox maps are limited and thus much much smaller than your average PC world. Therefore, has it been revealed how many Strongholds will be spawned in an XBox world?

  • remember specifics) - which means it's not 1.8's fault. I have a map in 1.7 which summons named zombies, and they only show their names when you look at them within a certain distance. What data tag would I add to make it so that the magma cube (or any other mob) would only show their name within a certain distance and when you look at them? PS 40k question! :D

  • For example, spawning of mobs, dissapearing of items, minecarts going by themselves, is any of that affected by the draw distance? For example, obvisouly, the mobs do not spawn in the whole world (which is unlimited I guess), but only in some radius around you. Is that radius set statically, or does it depend on your render distance graphics setting?

  • profiles for Forge 1.6.4 and Forge 1.7.2 But when the game loads only the 3 default mods appear in the Mod List: a) Minecraft Coder Pack b) Forge Mod Loader c) Minecraft Forge. No child mods.

  • I'm new to Minecraft, and I'm looking to see how far away from my crops I can get before it starts causing problems. I know that wheat has to be within the chunk update radius of at least one player to keep growing, which lead me to this question: Within how many blocks do I have to be for wheat to grow? So I understand now what the system is for determining the chunk update radius in multiplayer, but what about single player? All I've seen is the following sentence from the wiki: The exact number of generated chunks varies in single player mode, depending on view distance

  • I'm new to Command Blocks in Minecraft and want to solve this problem: If X players in radius Y around the command block, then output power. I read a bit about testfor and tried things like testfor @p[r=5,c=2] which I hoped would only output power if there are at least 2 players in a radius of 5. Doesn't work. Then I only tried testfor @p[r=5] and added a comparator block at the end and hoped it would output as much power players are in the given radius. Doesn't work. How can I actually test how many players are in a specific radius? How do I only output power if a given number of players

  • I am playing Minecraft Hexxit and noticed something odd with the nether portal. The first time I went through and back from my portal by base I ended up at a different portal that was already set up. So I damaged the portal to disable it and leave. Some time later I go into the nether and when I return I end up back at the same spot with the portal having been rebuilt. So then I completely take..., but with the portal above the water this time. So how do I get my portal to be the one that the nether side links to?

  • Torchlight 2 has many status effects that can be applied to monsters. However, they seem to be poorly documented (if at all.) One of these is silence, which has a spell dedicated to it, is a byproduct of the nether imp's attack, and is an effect produced by many magical weapons. Its official spell description is this: Silences enemies within 8 meters, preventing them from using most skills. Which abilities/monsters are affected? (The only one that I think I've noticed is the basilisk's immobilizing gaze.)

  • Possible Duplicate: How can I find my World's Strongholds? Is there any reliable tool for determining the locations of Fortresses and Nether fortresses in Minecraft? We migrated our server to the latest version of Bukkit. Since we have quite a bit of the map already revealed, I'm not sure whether we still have a chance of finding a fortress in the overworld. So instead of running around the map, I'd like to use a tool to find their locations and then check whether those chunks were already generated. Similarly, is there such a tool for Nether fortresses? (Even this isn't
