Minecraft Forge 1.14.4

Let’s stop for a second and talk about Minecraft Forge situation on Minecraft 1.14.4. I guess the bad thing or downside if you want to call it like that is that many mods are still not updated and are not working on 1.14.4.

However there’s a working (and stable) version of Forge for Minecraft 1.14.4. Developers still advise you to be careful and report bugs but it’s actually playable.

But keep in mind, if you’re going to us Minecraft Forge 1.14.4 you have to also update your mods or Forge will simply not load them.

Minecraft cheating?

I was using the staircase method to mine down to 12 blocks from bedrock. I stop with the stairs and move in a straight line. The original reason I started mining was that I was at level 22 trying to get to 30 for enchantments. I died to lava because I had no stairs, but I don’t know how to stay at the same point 12 blocks from bedrock without dying to lava. I enabled cheats and changed keepinventory to true so I could level up.

Then, I realized you can just give enchantments with cheats. Now, I feel guilty from cheating and want to remove all cheats but then I would lose all of my diamond weapons because I cheated to enchant them. What can I do to safely mine diamonds, level up, and not cheat at all? Do I need to carry water in case there is lava? What do I do?

Bukkit alternative?

I’m kinda creating my own Bukkit alternative, mostly because I’m bored and really wanted to ask some questions before I begin…

For Bukkit, Sponge, Spigot, TacoSpigot, Whatever developers alike:

What is the "best" part of your preferred API and why? 

What would be the most essential parts of every server plugin API?

Keep in mind I’m only asking developers, because the only response I’d get from users would be “all the plugins” and that wouldn’t make sense.

I just defended my castle from a raid in Minecraft 1.14

I was showing my friend around the server and we noticed a group of pillagers. Thinking nothing of it we killed them all. That’s when I remembered that angering them summons a raid on the first village we come to (bad omen effect).

And so when we got to my castle the raid began. Horns were sounded, bells were rung. Chaos. Wave after wave spawned first outside the castle walls, then inside, each time closer to our worried villagers.

But we prevailed, the raid was defeated. That’s when we saw the sky fill with fireworks and gifts come from every villager.

This was the most awesome thing that happened in the game in a long time, I must say 1.14 is my favorite update of the last few years, which is surprising because I loved 1.13 when it came out. But now not only do cities and villages feel more alive than ever thanks to the new villager mechanics, defending them is a real event that is not just fun, but brings interesting benefits, like discounts and gifts, when completed successfully.

The timing of the raid was amazing too, I just finished building the outer wall last week! Just in time to repel this attack!
