Does the old method still work or was it completely replaced? Either way, this is a much better way to make tipped arrows

level 2

I agree this is much better. I never liked the old way.

I don't know. Crafting recipes with non-stackable items aren't a lot of fun. Or does anybody love crafting dispensers?

level 4

Crafting recipes with non-stackables are bad.

Recipes requiring unintuitive actions with arbitrary limitations are worse.

It wasn't perfect, but at least it was something different, not plain old boring tedious crafting again.

This game doesn't need more tedious tasks. The reason why this game is so great, is that it lets you be creative, whether it's building or automating things.

An interesting process got removed, that enabled you to be creative with automating it and got replaced by dull clicking in a GUI. That's why I think this change wasn't for the better.

But I understand, that some people don't get enjoyment out of automatisation. Forcing them to throw potions on the ground and shoot arrows at it over and over again is just as dull as crafting. Would have been cool if both methods would work. One method, that could be fully automated and crafting, if you're not interested in that.

I've played feedthebeast before. I like the challenge of vanilla minecraft more. Modded is too easy and straightforward. The first time it's interesting to discover all the things, but after you've done that, there's nothing that would keep me going unlike in vanilla.

level 8

Minecraft's just not a challenging game. I enjoy automation but I'm tired of just grinding caves for ore, building everything block by block... Different strokes for different folks I guess.

level 9

that's exactly it. I haven't been mining for a year now. Almost everything (few exceptions) you can find underground is renewable. It's not as easy as in modded to farm it, but it's possible.

Also I really enjoy redstone, for example designing fast tree farms or making a witch farm as effective as possible. There's just a lot more depth to it. In modded you mostly have to wire the machines and that's it.

level 6

To me GUI's are just a developer's way of saying they couldn't think of a more interesting way of making it work.

level 7

I don't think there's a way to make a game as big as Minecraft without using GUIs...

level 8

Of course. But using GUIs when there was a better option available is a loss in my books.

Non stackable are just kinda dumb in general.

And 16 stackable are pretty dumb as well :/

level 6

the only purpose of 16 stackables is so you cant spam eggs and snow balls as easily

level 7

Make it 64 stackable and add a short cooldown.

level 8

I would like that. Especially when your throwing eggs and keep hitting the chickens that hatch.

level 6

I think it's dumb they changed the stack limit from 999 to 64.

level 7

Since when was it 999?

level 8

Years back. You even started with 999 wood planks and glass.

I'm not actually sure if you could naturally get more than 64, never did. I always had plenty of glass and wood! Before that you started out with 10 tnt, then sometime later after the glass/wood was taken out, I realized you couldn't put more than 64 of something in at one place.

level 2

It appears that the old method was removed

that sucks. I just found a way to fully automate the process. Now we have more crafting/GUI clicking :( Too bad, that we can't have both methods

level 4

I just saw your video tutorial and it was great work!
