I've never actually tried that, but I'd think lots of torches, lots of healing supplies, and lots of tools.

 

Also, this may have been posted before, but coming in the Halloween update torches will be temporary and relightable, and lanterns will be the new permanent thing. However, all torches will turn into lanterns, so if you want free lanterns place all of your torches on the 29th or 30th!

So it would be most advantageous to me if I got the full version sometime before Halloween... Quick question about torches: How are they obtained? I'm guessing that you craft them or something, but I'm playing the Survival demo so I can't test that theory.

You put one stick on the bottom and one lump of coal right above it, and that'll make 4 torches.

Say, just how far down is the bedrock?

I dont really know but I would say its 64 blocks down from sea level as you can only build up to 64 blocks in the sky from sea level

What's strip mining?

 

I've managed to find enough metal to make a track from my house to my new mine-the only problem is that I don't have enough metal to create boosters so it's only one way.

pretty much mining everything in an area from the surface down, instead of making a tunnel system

 

i personally start a tunnel in my house and keep making a stair case that is about 2x2 before the next step

eventually i hit a cavern in which i spread out in different directions based upon the tunnels linking it

so

Where did you hear it? And what train noise? It could be a pig, their oinks are kinda odd, or if you're in a cave it might be one of the ambient noises.

there are so many cave systems under my house D:

i wouldn't mind it, except it gives me a heart attack everytime i move a block to find a path that splits 3-5 ways T__T

then i try to block them all but one while i torch that path, only to find more paths

i need to make signs i'm gonna get lost ._.

 

AND THERE IS SO MUCH LAVA!!!

 

i hate lava it stole my only diamonds -.-

You probably heard one of the

, I'm guessing #1 or #11. They play from unlit, enclosed spaces, so you may have an unexplored cave below your house.

if you find yourself getting lost then here is a tip going around the minecraft forums for not getting lost in tunnels

 

what to do is mark the tunnel leading towards the exit there are three ways to do this

a. mark the tunnel you came into the crossway with redstone torches

 

b. mark the tunnel with an archway of cobblestone

 

c. only place your torches on one side of the tunnels so you can keep track or which way you have been going (has a small failure rate if the tunnels loop back around)

well i can navigate by landmarks

my problem is that my cave has a tendency to make caverns at wierd places

say i'll travel one direction in my cave, then i have to make a path to get to the room in the left, once there i find a room above me to the right, next to me on the right, and to my left

i follow one of these paths to find more rooms, and they always need to have staircases made to get up or down

so on my return trip to my main tunnel i'm looking at them from ---> angle, while i had walked into the room looking at <--- angle and with the new additions of stairs it gets confusing

there is a big lava fall that goes through 3 rooms below it biggrin.gif

there was coal on the opposite side of the fall from me so i blocked it up, ran across got the coal to find a room on the other side, which i connected to the room down in front of part of the lava fall and reopened the fall

 

so much lava in my house D:

They have no reason to do it - they only raid forums where there are idiots.
