I’m planning to move out of spawn once i have the time to play, and a large issue i see is food.
I’m wondering what foods to bring on a long trip and what crops i should plant once i get a farm working.

That’s a key concern. Spawn has a large farm, and I tried to stock it with every type of crop. You can easily get a few seeds of every kind. If you go hunt cows or use animal traps, you can get leather to make backpacks. Those are the best way to carry extra items.

Early there are many soups you can make from basic vegetables. Later I would focus on peanut butter and jelly. Most fruits can be turned into salads, sliced, or juiced to make extra food types. PB requires milk, peanuts and bread. There are ways to use soybean milk via Pam’s for that.

When you decide to make a base, if you need a hand, let me know and I can help get you started with a safety tower. Try to find a spot a kilometer from other active bases, and don’t worry about the abandoned ones. The roads are useful to move around on the X/Z axis. I’d suggest find a biome you like near one.

We’ve had some success with using a floating farm design, which lets you have a generous farm plot, underground base, and walls to keep away the monsters. You need a decent sized deep body of water for that. Just throwing out ideas.

I thought that Server has a Gravestones Mod? unsure though, lol

It has openblocks, but it turns out that you need a shovel to break it in this modpack, so I went back to spawn, got a shovel, and came back to retrieve my items.

Or as we call it “an emergency shovel”.

So there are zombies which can pick you up, and that can happen through a diagonal. The physics are a bit wonky. I’ve had them drop me in walls. Ideally you press left shift to unmount and run, but a pack of these guys will kill you.

Oh! Fishing zombie! They can pull you around like crazy. Odd that you’d get dropped in a hill unless you disconnected midair.

I was mining the hill, then i disconnected due to lag and when i rejoined, I was underground (as seen at the start of the footage). So I guess I should disconnect only at safe places :confused:

That’s kinda odd. No other players are warping.

Oh! I didn’t know. The server is in NL on a quality connection. I can’t change the speed of light though.

Lol shanghai is like almost the exact opposite side of the World, and definitely the opposite side of the Eurasian Continent, with lots of Landmass and therefore Countries with Network Junctions inbetween. Either that or the Undersea Cable between NL and US, and the other undersea Cable between US and Asia would be a potentially longer route but with less junctions.

US players rarely have more than 2 bars. It’s a straight route.

I cant believe how Mojang fucked up communicating Ping and Signal Quality…

TWO BARS means the Packets get lost on the way, this has NOTHING to do with Ping. Mojang for whatever fucking reason decided to have a Tooltip ON those Bars telling you the Ping, making people inadvertently believe the Bars mean Ping, which they DO NOT.
