it's pretty cool, but it does need updatez.

Happy birthday.

Anyways, that's over with. Woo. Hopefully it actually works, given that I couldn't actually test it on the computer I used to edit the texture pack (bad video card :/).

It's a game. ;P

Anyways, it's not too bad. At first I thought it looked pointless... All you do is place blocks and destroy blocks. Big deal... That was until I played it anyway. It's actually pretty fun.

My only complaint is how far behind the Xbox version is from the PC version. It has creative mode now, but it's still not up to par. I guess only time will tell if the Xbox version will outlast the PC one.

It will never be up to date because they have to port it over to xbox which takes a long time so it will always be a version or 2 behind if you want the updated version just play it on pc.

and in a year or so they'll have to do it again when the next generation of Xbox comes out, unless they don't make a 720 version

Do you have a Windows computer?

Go to start or in Windows Explorer (what you use to go through your files), search '%APPDATA%' without the quotations, go into .minecraft (or roaming > .minecraft), go to 'texture packs' and paste the .zip folder there.

If you have a Mac, ... Good luck. Google is your friend.

Oh yeah, one detail I forgot: you can probably just press the 'open texture pack file' button (or whatever it says) and then paste the .zip file into there. That would work for all platforms, I think.

Generally when I ask for help on this thread, I don't really get any responses. That's alright, I have an easy one - something that will be fun.

I need some redstone creation ideas that are possible in the xbox version of Minecraft.

So far, I understand how to create:

1.Hidden doors and passageays of varying sorts. There's the very well known 2x2 hidden door design. Then there's also the "hidden stairway" design used by CNB Minecraft.

2. I have created an elaborate arrow trap. You walk into a room and you walk over a pressure plate. The passageway behind you closes. The walls to the left and right of you 'open' to reveal two 2x6 rows of dispensers that fire approximately 1 arrow every 2(?) redstone ticks. The best part is, you can deactivate the trap as a whole, or deactivate only particular parts of the trap (which must be done to load the trap without destroying blocks, being shot at, or being locked in the room).

**I saw this trap design quite a while back on YouTube, but I came up with the circuitry on my own. I can't remember the video sadly. If you know of any YouTube videos that use this trap, please link them to me.**

3. I came up with a very simple minecart trap. The minecart track will lead to a pit where you will fall and die. If you hit a switch of some kind (lever, button, weighted track switch), pistons will push dirt blocks over the pit, and another set of pistons will push tracks onto those blocks, allowing you to ride through without a problem.

The only problem with my current design is that it only works in tunnels where you have a 1 block wide tunnel. I think I can create a slightly more complex system where I can put everything against 1 wall, but there would still be visible pistons and tracks. Luckily, when you're on a Minecart track, stuff like pits sneak up on you, so it's really not that big of a deal anyway.

There are a number of ways I can hook the switches to the design. One design I fancy is one where you have to hit a switch that either allows the weighted track pad to activate or not activate.

Those are all the minecraft contraptions I know how to make so far. If anyone has any ideas, let me know! Also, if anyone finds an "elevator" that works on the 360 version flawlessly, please link me a video on how to make it!

Also, if anyone would like to learn about redstone circuits, I can help out a bit. I'm not an expert, but I can pretty much create any switch system you want. I can't create combination pads yet though, I'll learn how to do those eventually.

I'm also making a redstone tutorial world, that gives off examples of basic redstone circuits, latches and flip flops, as well as other important red stone tools such as ABBA switches. Suggestions of what I should and shouldn't add are welcome!
