Wow - nice job; and I’m sure this took a lot of work.
I tried to give you a rep point but I guess I need to “Spread some more Reputation around” first, LOL… oh well, next visit.

btw, in a couple weeks, I’ll try to write a guide on Decorative Bridge Building. I’ve become quite the expert lately and feel a strong desire to share my skills.


#3

Okay can’t wait to see the guide. :slight_smile:

Sorry might have miss them there’s quite a lot of threads.

I’ve just added list of achievements and list of items found with gold tools, can’t find the hostile and peaceful mobs list though, pls post the link here and i’ll check it out.

great job on your guides so far. :slight_smile:


#4

You missed How to Play Quidditch in The Blockheads.
Otherwise
…EXCELLENT JOB!!!


#5

I have a thread on how to build a house :slight_smile: you don’t have to put that in though.


#6

well it looks like you added in the hostile and passive mob guides… not sure if i just missed them the first time or you found them after you posted them


#7

Wow, nice! :smiley: I think that we could just un-sticky the other threads and have this one, along with the guides guidelines? (Lol ;)) Thanks for putting my packing list thread in there too! :smiley:

#9

No, I think it’s good to have some threads available directly.


#10

i think a couple of the threads should be unstickied though… i mean, seven sticky threads? thats a bit too much…


#11

I concur.


#12

Thanks Pineapple, i’ve added it. :slight_smile:

It’s a good reminder for those who are new to the game, you don’t want to swim across a ocean just because you forgot your boat. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve added the following threads:

This guide about cave trolls is good but most players already know about them, for those who have no idea what they are i think that a FAQ is much better at answering common questions.

Most people should know this, i can’t add every helpful thread otherwise it will get messy.

#13

I think if you’re going to call it a complete list you should include those too.


#14

I guess so i just don’t wish for it to get so messy that there’s no difference from searching the forums. :slight_smile:

Updated: I’ve just added them :slight_smile:


#15

Thanks

I Hack blockheads, have 2.5 million time crystals, and one Blockheads on my world, instead of the maximum of 14


#16

…and that has what to do with the thread?


#17

I think thats his tapatalk sig.


#18

Ah, okay.


#19

My brother, Allenx360, does Cave Troll guides, too.
