Lava Freeze

After two hours of playing Minecraft I was mining downward stair-step style when suddenly the block beneath my feet gave way to a drop…..into lava…But wait that’s not the worst part.  The Xbox froze up forcing me to restart the system.  Yup, I just wasted two hours of life.

Perhaps I’ll actually start letting the game autosave now or perhaps I’ll save before I go mining.

So while I was sitting at school bored out of my mind with no work to do I decided to pull out the nifty PE of Minecraft and create a concept Mob Spawner.  I am currently working on building this in my Survival World on the Xbox, but it is taking me forever to collect the cobblestone and smelt it back into stone.  I’ve also discovered that the size of the top room needs to be tweaked in order for mobs to actually spawn inside.

It probably isn’t worth all the time and energy, but hey! it looks cool and it is fun to craft.

Cave Squid
Cave Squid are a new mob, which was secretly added to the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft on February 23, 2014 as part of the pre-release of TU14, which will be released later this year.
Cave Squid have the exact same attributes as Squid, but they are found in underground caves.
Cave Squid usually spawn near Iron Ore.
Cave Squid cannot attack the player.
When killed Cave Squids have the same loot drop as Squid.
Also, when killed Cave Squid will teleport forcing the player to track down the loot drop, which is usually within a 20 block radius.
Cave Squids are very rare and only occur as glitches.

Okay so some of the above facts are true.  Sometimes the game glitches and mobs appear to be somewhere that they are not.  For instance penned sheep/cows sometimes seem to be outside of their enclosure, but after a few seconds they will seemingly teleport back into their enclosure.  In this instance the Squid was spawned in an underground lake, but it glitched into a nearby tunnel.  Since this was a glitch the Squid was unable to attack me.  When attacked the glitch is usually fixed and the mob will teleport back to wherever it was supposed to be.  In this instance the Squid teleported back to an underground lake, which was only about 10 blocks away.  Since this was just an ordinary Squid the loot drop bonus was the same.  The squid did appear near an Iron Ore vein and TU14 will be released later this year.  Also, just to sum things up this happened while playing the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft.  So all in all, this is not a lie, but merely a joke; although I am curious as to how many people I fooled into thinking that Cave Squid were actually in the game before they read the last bullet.  Haha.

Expect more Minecraft related posts over the next few weeks, because I am currently in the mood to play Minecraft.  Actually let me rephrase that.  I finally started playing Minecraft.  I had accidentally downloaded the game in December, but never actually played it until just this last weekend.  I kind of wish I had never started playing, because it is extremely addicting.
