Any thoughts about updating to 1.17.1?

https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en...Edition-1-17-1

Only possible from my view is if people are particularly hungry for powdered snow as it doesn't spawn naturally - but that's just a case of putting out a tonne of cauldrons more than anything. Same-same just slightly quicker in 1.17.1

Frankly I don't see any of us making a zombie farm to farm copper, though I guess we could?

Dude, just break the lectern and place it again.

Meanwhile, bring emeralds, potatoes, pumpkins, sticks, iron and paper and come use some of my villagers. Have Fortune III, Looting III, Mending, Silk Touch and a couple other less useful (though the Silk Touch dude also has Curse of Binding for great pranking).

Don't have Efficiency or Unbreaking librarians yet, but will get that at some point, and need to completely redo the villager trading hall too for zombification, but eh.

My Minecraft knowledge is about 12 years out of date I think.

I've built a bunker about half a day east of spawn. Once I've stocked that up a bit, I'm going to go east again.

I go for Vanilla Tweaks - https://vanillatweaks.net/picker/resource-packs/

It's a free custom adjustments pack that gives slight enhancements over vanilla.

Categories I use are:
Aesthetic
Red Iron Golem Flowers
Unique Dyes

Terrain
Bushy Leaves
Clearer Water

Connected Textures
Variated Connected Bookshelves

Peace and Quiet
Quieter Rain
Quieter Minecarts
Quieter Villagers
Quieter Nether Portals
Quieter Dispensers and Droppers
Quieter Pistons


Utility
Diminishing Tools
Visual Waxed Copper
Fully Aged Crop Marker
Age 25 kelp
Groovy Levers
Brewing Guide
Visual Sapling Growth

In seperate Redstoning pack:
Sticky Piston Sides
Directional Hoppers
Directional Dispensers and Droppers
Directional Observers
Redstone Power Levels
Visible Tripwires
Visual Honey Stages
Visual Cauldron Stages
Visual Composter Stages
Visual Note Block Pitch

Unobtrusive
All three "Borderless" Glass options
Unobtrusive Scaffolding
Lower Fire
Lower Shield
Translucent Pumpkin Overlay (rather than the "No Pumpkin Overlay" one)
Smaller Utilities

HUD
Basically this section is easiest way to change your crosshair

GUI
Smoother Font
Numbered Hotbar

Fun
Tried the "English Enchanting Table Translation" for a bit, but doesn't make a difference, so eh.

Fixes
This section is just visual stuff. I don't tend to bother with it as none of it annoys me enough.



On paying: I can understand why pixel artists etc would want to be paid, but with the sheer volume of good resource packs for free, I don't see the value proposition for me.

Maybe if I was looking to do a total conversion, but even then a lot of the free TC packs are freaking amazing.

General pack:
https://nzgames.s3.ap-southeast-2.am...AL_r557881.zip

Redstone:
https://nzgames.s3.ap-southeast-2.am...NE_r812443.zip

Of course you can just recreate my packs from the notes above rather than trust my dodgy downloads

MHG is having trouble with "flying" when using a boat on an ice-path missing every 2nd block. Can you tweak?

I did have a quick look, the popular ones I found had a free low-res version, with paid higher res versions.

I wouldn't mind something that looked a bit shinier. Maybe I'll keep searching.

Aah. Right - have fun, there are a few high res packs out there over the 16x16 defaults, but from going down that rabbit-hole myself previously I now just use the default textures.

A good guideline for building is even if you build it for a given texture pack, you'll still want it looking good for the vanilla pack - the greater majority of players use vanilla.

However there's two packs I would consider myself:
Faithful a 32x32 pack that's been updated for years https://resource-pack.com/faithful-1-17-32x/
Steven's Traditional 64x64 contemporary pack, slightly tweaked from Vanilla, but again mostly quite faithful. https://www.minecraftforum.net/forum...ithful-default

I tend to stay away from the 256x and high packs - they don't really add anything unless you're still.

Another option is install Optifine or one of the other options that allows deployable shaders, and get one of the pretty spectacular shader packs that are out there. Awesome for doing the "wow! Pretty!!" but pretty pants for actual gameplay IMO.

Small word of warning though: Don't mix packs of various resolutions. I don't know if it does anymore, but it used to make the game client unstable.

What are the limits for the map size? I want to take a journey, but I don't want to put unnecessary load on the server.

You know I dont see a max size in storage anywhere, we running with enough RAM to have about 10 people online at a time, and we dont have that, im often on solo because of my work/study schedule at present.

just dont go crazy I was looking to run overviewer/dynmap when i get time.

What actually uses resources? I'm guessing it only generates the map for areas you visit? I suppose I could research this myself, it's just a vanilla server, right?

Things can be trimmed down using WorldEdit - there's tricks that can be done to trim things that have been moved through but not altered, or have had only minimal amounts of alteration (such as only dirt blocks and torches placed, for example)

I don't know the actual HOW of it yet, just that it's done with WorldEdit as a script, offline, then reuploaded to the server.

However to save server resources: Lightspeed, do you know where you're actually going, or are you just wanting to explore? If it's the former, get a diamond pickaxe, 10 (or 14 if feeling compelled to be completionist) Obsidian, and go there via the nether portal at your base - just remember to divide the X and Z coordinates by 8 to get to the right location.

Going through the nether saves resource due to simply not needing to load as many chunks for the same distance.

I've not tackled an Ocean Monument yet. It's on my To Do list, not a priority yet though - need a LOT more sand/gravel to turn one into a farm.

I think I have like, 3 pris. crystals and 2 shards from desert temple & sunken wreck raiding.
