Minecraft - Caves and Cliffs Pt. 1 update out now

Well that was a bit soul destroying. After a few weeks of playing me and my daughter had created a few large scale houses and finally a mansion (on Survival mode) only for the game to crash this morning. On reloading the game and World it worked (for a bit) before crashing again and now seems permanently fucked, as it instantly crashes now when loading the world every time.

 

On Xbox and have cleared Cache, copied game World file etc and still nadda. Only thing I can think was we had the Lithos HD Texture pack and some character mods activated which may have caused the crashes (according to the Internet mods do cause some crashes). Start again, no mods in a new world, its a shame as that world had carried across from 360 through to Xbox One edition and onto Bedrock and was several years old (may have also contributed?)

Pretty much, yeah. Though I can't speak for the infinite map option as I've generally only played previous console versions that were limited in size, but I never really hit that limit anyway.

 

Survival is a must unless you just want to exercise your creative muscles. Exploring caves and venturing out at night are nothing without the constant threat of spiders, skeletons and creepers.

You can switch to and from survival and creative....but...you'll no longer be able to get survival achievements on that world if you switch once you've switched to creative (and even after you switch back to survival)...but...you get your choice of topping...but the topping is also cursed.

Yeah, creative has its place but I never found Minecraft interesting outside of survival. Scavenging is very much part of it, being able to beam in 8 tonnes of diamond or whatever just gets dull.

 

I imagine if you were building massive creations it'd be different but building a cool castle isn't building a cool castle if you beamed in the stuff.

Yeah and that's one thing Minecraft has always done so well, to your 6 year old it's a lego set and he's happy with that, which is fucking great.

 

For you, building redstone things wouldn't be remotely the same if you hadn't obtained it the way you did.

 

And you're both having a tremendous time, perfect.

 

Shame Notch never finished anything else and then went mad.

Has anyone tried running the Java edition on a Pi 4? My kids are dying to play and make mods, but the specific Minecraft build they ship with the Pi is designed to run on the original presumably, given how limited it is. But you can install the Java edition. 

 

If it's decent, I'll fish out an old monitor and get them a Pi 4,rather than getting them a PC.

Its such a fun and relaxing games. My six year old is obsessed with it but only plays a on creative ass he is too scared of dying. 

 

My game is on survival, just found my first redstone last night :)

 

If he's on PC, and I think it works on the the xbox one version, you can change the gamerule "keepinventory" to true and when he plays in survival and dies, he keeps everything on respawn.

Get him to join your Survival world and learn the basics of crafting a safe house (and bed), finding and growing food, identifying and defending against mobs and finally mining as deep as you can.

 

My daughter loves it but does struggle on her own (she is 8). We found an amazing mine under our house where she mined her first diamond. We haven't mastered the Nether yet, my portal took us straight out on top of a lava lake!

Is Minecraft regularly fucked? After months of it not working on my son's Switch, it did an update and worked again (same with on my daughter's aging Ipad)..but then after two weeks the Switch version is screwed again. 


On the Switch, yes.

Jeez, how can that be? I don't understand how such a huge game, huge company and huge format can have a game that doesn't work...

 

It's mostly down to the huge save files, apparently.

Me and my daughter have been playing minecraft all through lockdown. But recently on the Xbox one x when pressing the menu button this loading graphic appears on screen and it never loads the menu. 
 

Ive since moved over to a series x, redownloaded Minecraft and it’s still the same thing!

 

Any ideas?

I notice this is on console, which I thought was more locked down for mods and stuff. Is that a texture pack, or does Minecraft have wallpaper/floor patterns now? Also, toasters? Jars? :D That got me googling and I had no idea there was a kitchenware update.

You can add mods to the Xbox version, it’s a little fiddly but doable. 
 

My daughter was full on obsessed throughout the initial lockdown, basically either playing Minecraft or watching videos of Minecraft so I had to try and get the mods the youtubbers were using.

Can anyone give me a step-by-step guide on how to get cross-play working for my 11-year-old, who had Bedrock edition on PS4?

 

I've not read any Kafka, but the two hours I spent on Saturday could probably be described as a Kafkaesque vicious circle of defeat.

 

So far I have:

Created my daughter a PSN account

Created her a Microsoft account

Gave her all the relevant permissions on my PSN family management thing so she can play online

Connected her PSN account to the Minecraft account

Got her to connect to a friend via Outlook, so they can see each other within Minecraft

Somehow ended up creating XBOX Live gamertags for both her and me

Changing all the Microsoft settings as her guardian, so she can play online.

 

She got invited to a 'Realm' from a friend, but when she tries to join, it says that she cannot play due to how her account has been set up. I'm caught between a bazillion different help articles, and I have no idea.

 

So I end up just telling her to play Fortnite instead, but it's absurd really.

 

Anyone else experienced this nonsense? Is it just easier to change her date of birth so that she looks over 13? Because you really shouldn't have to do that for bloody Minecraft.

I am really sorry I cant help but last time I tried to change date of birth on my son to prevent being locked out of Fortnite it wouldn't let me!

 

Which leads to a followup - how did you permit Fortnite to let her play on PS4? I could never work it out on mine.

I experienced all that nonsense when I first setup Minecraft Bedrock on PC for my son, I remember going around in circles continuously trying to resolve it. I can't remember exactly what did resolve it (although I did not have to change his DoB anywhere), but I do share your pain - sorry I can't be any help there!
