Speaking Of Getting Lost . . .

September 19th, 2011 | Posted in Entertainment, nutjob hills | Comments Off

On the subject of getting lost in Minecraft (something I’m kinda an expert at), The other day I got a suggestion from Mr. Helpful on that subject. Unfortunately his suggestion shows just how much he doesn’t know about Minecraft and how things work.

His idea was that I should create something in-game that would serve the same function as those fancy address plaques for house numbers that a lot of people use. The only difference would be that they’d put out a lot of light and be visible for miles if I put it high enough. Then theoretically I’d always be able to find my way home.

Unfortunately that wouldn’t work because once I go beyond my render distance from it I would never see it because it would not be rendered until I was within my render distance. and I keep that set fairly short because of limitations of my computer and video card.

Nice try but no cigar.
