    Can pigs and other animals spawn on snow-covered dirt? Can creepers and other monsters spawn on snow-covered blocks?

  • Snow coverage does not affect spawning at all. To be more precise, mobs will spawn as if blocks of snow-cover are blocks of air.

  • Tekkit 3.1.2/1.2.5 We just set up a new tekkit server a week or so ago, and today I went to make a snow golem, but the golem wouldn't spawn after I placed the pumpkin. I made sure I was in an area where mobs could spawn, so that can't be the problem ... is there a flag or something that the server admin needs to set to allow snow golem/iron golems to spawn?

  • I've just started a Dwarf Fortress (0.34.11) game and I just happen to start in a location with Climate: Freezing. The ground is covered in snow, but there's grass outside and I want to make a pasture for my animals. Will they be able to graze even if the ground is covered in snow?

  • changed a bit. for example: Our island we've became an ice-island. The desert is now covered in snow The grass changed in color. So the biome seems to have changed. Not to mention the spawn point is now 100 blocks from where it was originally, and it is also covered in snow and ice where previously it wasn't. As if this wasn't bad enough, after a huge crash of our server host the same thing happened again. Our "normal" areas changed more and more in ice and snow and the spawn-point is now about 300 blocks away. So it seems that the biomes shifted. I, with my nonexistent programming

  • Has anyone confirmed the spawn rate for golden bees? I found several threads at various forums, but they all boil down to "just buy one". I know I can buy them, and did in my file. However, my 6 year old son wants to catch one. He just caught his first shiny Pokemon, so he knows what patience means. I'd just like to be able to give him a number if possible. Regarding duplicate status: I don't believe this is a duplicate at all. I asked a specific question not covered by either the question or answer in the linked one. "It appears randomly" is not a spawn rate, and I thought

  • I'm building an extremely long elevated boatway and am trying to figure out what blocks I could use to hold in the water/guide the boat without needing to light them. My boatway, however, passes through quite a few snow biomes. I know that snow won't collect on glass, but since glass is labor intensive I was hoping to use cobble slabs. Can snow accumulate on slabs or any other transparent blocks? If so, will they then be able to spawn mobs?

  • I'm in an area full of snow, does that mean it will only snow, or is there a possibility of rain? Is an area with ice or snow guaranteed to have snow fall? If not, what decides what weather the area has? Is there a way to tell what weather you will get in an area without having to wait and see? EDIT: So, going by the accepted answer, this shouldn't be happening? Clearly, it can rain on areas that were covered by snow.

  • One of my nuclear power plants recently had a meltdown, and now the entire area is covered in radiation. No buildings are able to flourish there; they all become abandoned due to radiation. I've waited a pretty long time, and it doesn't seem as if the effects of the radiation are dying down at all? Is there anything I can do to get rid of the radiation? Does it dissipate naturally and I just have waited long enough? Will certain buildings do okay in radioactive areas?

  • into the nether via another portal and built one at -2, 51, 20. When they're both lit, they connect properly and no other portals collide. Praise the miners! (The overworld portal would take me to the spawn... chunks portal takes me to the nether side of the iron foundry. Both iron foundry portals link to each other. summary of portal locations: overworld: spawn chunks: -16, 196, 163 iron foundry: -14, 184, 210 nether: spawn chunks: -2, 51, 20 iron foundry: -2, 51, 26 My actual question: where can I move my nether portals so they work properly?

  • I got a notice once I acquired a musket that "Deshawn", my arms dealer, was ready to settle. I have built a house with walls, background, light source, door, chair and table and he simply will not spawn. I haven't seen any other notice regarding him again yet. Can anyone give me any advice on what I should do?
