Stronghold locations in 1.2.4 vs 1.1?

  • Stronghold locations in 1.2.4 vs 1.1? John

    It appears that the stronghold locations have moved. I had found a strong hold at one point in a creative world that my little kids like to play in. I found it in 1.0 or 1.1. I didn't write down the coordinates.

    Since that time, we're running 1.2.4 and we are using an eye of ender to try and find the stronghold again, and it's taking us to a nearby, but different spot, a spot just on the edge of what we had previously explored. So, when we get to new areas, we find vestiges of a stronghold, all of which end abruptly at the "old explored area" vs. the "newly generated area" boundary.

    I've also tried flying to a totally different part of the world, to see if the eye of ender takes us to a different stronghold, but no luck. It's my understanding from the Wiki that there should be 3 strongholds, all roughly equally spaced around the center, roughly 1km from (0,0,0) but no matter where I go, the eyes of ender always take me back to this non-existent stronghold.

    Is there any app that will give me strong hold locations for a 1.1 minecraft seed? My seed is: -6550982739431437639

    Any suggestions?

  • The algorithm for generating landscapes changed between 1.1 and 1.2.4. Unfortunately you won't find that fortress where you found it before in that map. You will have to track it down again. Remember you can use Eyes of Ender to find a fortress.

  • what is already generated followed the 1.1 rules for world generation, as you go past the boundaries it will begin to generate with the 1.2.4 rules. If I remember correctly, the eye will point to where they should be in the current version. if that land is already generated you're sunk, as the land will not regenerate. however if there is a fortress outside of explored land, you may be able to get one yet.

  • So I was goofing around in creative mode just because my survival game was a little too intense and I wanted to play without the fear of dying. After a while, building got boring, and then I decided to go and find an End Portal. I've never found one before, but I looked at different tips and got an Ender Eye. I sent a few up from a triangular position. I dug down and found a stronghold. All excited, I decided to go searching. I literally explored every pathway and found absolutely nothing. Despite my many Eyes of Ender, I couldn't find the Portal! What am I doing wrong? I dug down to where

  • and small map picture (best I could find). Each class that we can choose from has its different perks: Medic = Stim grenades (heals and revives), Engineer = Turret and repairs, Scout = Spot grenade... of the wretch flank. While we are getting ammo from our regen packs, we are all extremely close to each other, seceptable to a team wipe (everyone dying) by an explosion.

  • I was just browsing through some of my statistics for the game, and when you go into Options > Stats > Exploration the first thing listed there is Treasure Maps Found and I have a 0% there. When I first saw it I thought of the Smugglers missions in The Bayou which revealed a bunch of treasure chest locations, but I've already completed all of those and this still says 0% next to it. Where are these treasure maps I can find and what all do they actually reveal to me?

  • Torchlight 2 is giving us excessively long load times in multiplayer on net. My friend and I both have high end PC's and it takes no time at all in single player to transition between different areas but for some reason when we play online, the game will take sometimes up to 3 or 4 minutes to load into the next area. Does anyone know why this is and how we can fix it?

However, I attempted this when my only active missions ("You... the Lancers before you get to that area, the blockade appears, if you drive past them, it's clear". However, I was fairly certain that the roadblock had been up several of the times that I just drove past

  • I’m playing Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II (GameCube) with a friend in offline multiplayer mode (split screen). Unfortunately our area progress is not saved. So even when we finish Forest... had to finish Forest in single-player mode so that a online party could start in Cave immediately. So I assume this is the case in the offline multiplayer mode, too. I wonder: Is there any trick or even a cheat that could help here? We want to play together. If someone of us would have to finish the areas in single-player mode, he gets an experience point boost and the other one feels bored

  • Possible Duplicate: Can I alter the biome of an area? After, copying my vanilla world to bukkit, the biome seems to have changed from tundra to snow (while the terrain is the same as I noticed by creating a new world with same seed). This means that there is a straight border between the tundra part of the world that I previously explored, and the snow land that bukkit generates now. It also causes WorldGuard to let my lake freeze since it is in a snow biome now. Long story short: Is there any way to change the local biome back into tundra?

  • The stronghold seems to be really far away from my spawn point, and I end up losing all the 'eye of enders' I have. Any idea on how far a stronghold can be from a spawn point?(Since there can be just 3 in a world, I assume they can be really far away!)
