I want to try minecraft, I really do, but I have a few questions;

1. How well would this run on a Mac?
2. How often do creepers attack and destroy stuff you make?
3. Are mods download seperate or do they come with the game?
4. How scary is this game really?

I didn’t find it scary at all when I first saw it(when I was 12)…
Mods are seperate.

1) Not sure, haven’t tried(Protip: get pirated version and try before buying game to make sure it works)
2) Random. If you keep the places near your house and your house itself well lit you shouldn’t have too many problems. Or if your a scared there’s always peaceful mode
3) Seperate, they aren’t very hard to install tho.
4) Not scary at all

1. Fine.

2. Depends. Light up your area around so they don’t spawn. OR set it on peaceful.

3. Separate.

4. Only scary part is when you’re mining and suddenly you hear a sssssss…

If you plant 4 jungle saplings in a 2×2 pattern, and bonemeal it, you’ll get a very big tree!

If it is indirect contact, it will become Cobblestone.

Water flow on Lava source = Obsidian
Lava flow on Water source = Smooth Stone
Water flow and Lava flow = Cobblestone.

Edit: didn’t see GATM’s post I feel like an idiot

Lol.

Every post I will tell you an amazing* did you know fact.

*Probably bad

Did you know?

You might think Notch is the main creator of Minecraft, but no. Jeb and Dinnerbone are now the main developers, although Notch sometimes still works on the game.

I am sorry, but GaTm, I think you worded that badly, Notch IS THE MAIN CREATOR. But not the main developer.

Fact: Mobs cannot spawn on bedrock
Fact: The nether has bedrock on the bottom and on the top
Fact: You can glitch through bedrock
Fact: The place above the bedrock in the nether is flat.

I’m gonna say this first, DO NOT try this in singleplayer, you’ll be stuck forever(unless you switch to creative and break bedrock)

If you play in an anarchy server(servers where griefing, pvp..etc is allowed) the best place to hide your base is above the nether. You can just /sethome or similiar there and store all your stuff there! Above the nether is infinitely flat land, whith no mobs. If you get silk touch you can even get ice and make farms up there!

How you get up there:

Rich way: Go to the highest possible point in the nether, throw 2-3 enderpearls on the bedrock and you’ll glitch through
Poor way: Go to the highest possible point in the nether, place a wooden door on the ground, open the door then stand where the door would be when its closed, then close the door so now you should be inside the door, now disconnect/exit and rejoin the server and……BAYAM! your above the nether.(Last tested in 1.3.2)

There are over 45 million users registered, and over 7 million bought copies!

Also, the registered goes up about 1 per 2 SECONDS, and the bought copies goes up every 20 seconds! This means Mojang gets about 75$ PER MINUTE!

Nope, they have to pay(more than 50% last time I heard) most of their profits to the swedish government.

I don’t think they HAVE to, it’s just that they wanted to. Anyhow, that’s still a lot of money.

Did you know?

They are adding bats and witches to Minecraft!

These are for Minecraft Noobs.

Did you Know?
Bookcases make enchantment tables have higher level enchantments.
If you don’t have over 10 levels, it is best to enchant with level 1 enchantments.
Often, level 1 on armor will give you protection I.
Diamonds spawn at Y-level 1-17.
Diamonds spawn in chunks of 1-8.
If you have ice under soul sand, you go twice as slow as normal soul sand.
You can break blocks in adventure mode if you have the tool to break that item.
You break blocks slower in water and cobwebs.

That 2nd last one is a glitch. It’ll be fixed soon.

Did you know?

(For pros)

The lighting system is remade. Finally, those nasty lighting glitches are gone! Also, light now passes through half-slabs and stairs etc. correctly.
