SUBJECT: RE: Game Rules – Improving Peaceful Mode

Hello Joel, and Jonny. I hope you are doing well.

Speaking of game rules in Minecraft, in Episode 218, I thought I would share a game rule idea for hostile mobs. What if a game rule allowed players to toggle the light level at which hostile mobs can spawn? Players who want to, can go back to light level 7 for mob spawning, say for nostalgia purposes. Maybe a negative value would mean no hostile mobs would spawn? How is this different from peaceful mode? Well, how about, a game rule in peaceful mode that allows the hostile mobs to spawn, only they won’t be hostile towards players? This would allow peaceful players to get drops from hostile mobs, without the aggressive interactions.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Love the podcast.

The First Move From Single Player To Multiplayer Minecraft

FROM: Phil
SUBJECT: Solo To Multiplayer

Hey Jonny, and Joel, 

I only play single player but I’m really enjoying the collaboration between the Hermits and the Empire SMP crew. It makes me want to play with others.

How did you start playing in multiplayer? Do you have any recommendations on how to find a good server to do this?

I’m on PS5 so bedrock, but would love to hear your story and how I could get a glimpse of colabs.

Thanks!

Phil
