    What's a good effective mob trap? I've found a skeleton spawner, I've managed to block off the room but so far the traps I've tried haven't worked. I tried using a piston to squash them, but the phase through blocks when they do stand in the right place. Got a couple of dispensors shooting arrows, but don't have enough yet so they run out too soon to kill the buggers.

    A popular method is to drop them from a great height. You use a 'water ladder' which is a sign with a water block above, then another sign and another water, repeat. This is done in a 1 block space and because the mobs are always moving they hit the water and the wall and start going up, when they get high enough you just open it up and either have a piston on constantly* or just give them no other option but to fall off I guess.

    If you want to see a ludicrous one then search for a blaze farm.

    *This would need to be turned on of course since things can't be on constantly on xbox.

    Do you like the idea of unlimited Lego? With a survival element to it? It not then you won't like it, if you do you'll love it. I find it's best played in co op too

    Yep, I've never played it tbh. The bioshock video is great but I'm not particularly creative though.

    Yeah, I need to change it tbh. Makes me seem like a misogynist that is obsessed with sci-fi tbh.

    Think andy hits the nail on the head here really.

    I've been playing much more Minecraft XBLA since the release of the new version-y thing. I scalped a Seed with a bit of everything in it from the Minecraft forum thread ubergine mentioned earlier, and have been having an amusing time, sometimes with friends and sometimes just chilling on my own, mucking around with the potion brewing, blaze-spawners, item-enchanting and all that shiny new stuff, while finding that it's much easier to make multiple nether portals work now.

    The game still doesn't really have any direction, and I think I wish they'd included a few more redstone things, like redstone lamps in the update, but I can't really complain because it's been mostly relaxing fun. You can still make it exciting, exploring the cave systems, dark ravines and Strongholds (if you can find one!) of the new update, but it's definitely a game that you'll either like, or not like.

    There's nothing wrong with that though, all games are subject to our tastes and preferences. I can completely understand how some people might find the directionless, repetitive block-breaking and placing at the core of the game just isn't for them.

    When I first played Minecraft my reaction was a distinct "meh", I could completely see the appeal to it but it just wasn't for me. But when I downloaded the demo on 360 and played the tutorial and it had me building a house it just kind of clicked.

    Since then i've realised that the important thing is setting your own objectives. When I first played I just wandered around aimlessly but once i'd built a house I had things to do because I wanted to upgrade it, to extend it and to fortify it and to do all that properly I had to mine, explore and do everything else that's in the game.

    Now i'd say it's probably one of my favourite games!

    Quick question: I have a seed that I had from the very beginning. I've got bugger all passive mobs since the patch that messed up them spawning. Is there a way to get them to spawn again? If I do find the odd lonely cow around could I "farm" them (and then free them)to a point where I might have a similar amount roaming around to before said patch?

    @ubergine Yeah, I started a new seed (aubergine, incidentally) and they're bloody everywhere. I decided to visit an old seed and bugger all.

    Ah, that must be it. I spent weeks building a palatial log cabin in the snow only for it to rain after the patch!

    Another thing is there's a limit to the number of wolves you can befriend before mobs stop spawning...It was around 20 I think...

    Has this patch happened yet that people are talking about? Was going to get back into this but don't want to if patches are incoming.

    @Raiko101:
    Haha, no...That's just another name for the unique name you can give at the beginning to generate your world from...
    It defaults to a random one, or you can specify your own and know that if you ever re-enter the same "seed" you'll get the exact same world...

    Well you're shit out of luck then, they patch it every month or so. Current one seems to be a bit delayed, probably by that stupid holiday thing recently. I was hoping it would be this week, but no go.

    I was specifically talking about this:

    Okay, if you're someone who likes to play purely on survival - never using creative - I'm going to go right ahead and recommend you don't bother playing until the patch later this month.

    Is that 20 wolves total or 20 wolves at once? I've definitely tamed 20 wolves in total but never at once. I think I only have two at the minute ever since Sparkles fell down that mine and Gaston the 4th drowned...

    @HandsomeCrab:
    No no, at once...It was about 20 anyway, I had to murder three of them just to spawn in some sheep again...
