This is a Charged Creeper. It has been struck by lightning and is twice as dangerous than a regular Creeper. It will blow up a larger area and do more damage if you're unlucky enough to be near-by when it goes off. The Minecraft wiki page on Creepers has more technical details.

The creeper in the picture is a Charged Creeper. It only appears when a creeper gets shocked by lightning. They have a larger explosion radius than regular Creepers. If you can make it follow you next to another mob, then make it explode, the mob will drop his head, but only one mob head per Charged Creeper explosion.

A compass does not point to your bed, so this cannot be fixed. It points towards the initial spawn point of your world.

This message means that you are using the wrong version of minecraft. "Outdated server" means that the server is using an older version of Minecraft than you are. The best way to find out what version they're using is to contact the server administrators, or go to their website if they have one. For the server on the top, it shows the version of spigot ...

Pets can only teleport to land, so if you cross a large enough body of water and they can't keep up by swimming, they will be unloaded and will be unable to teleport to you when you come to land. One way around this is to swim or boat slowly so that they keep up. Another way is to make a path through the nether and take them through that way.

For some reason your spawn point has ended up in midair. It might be a bug but it's more likely your brother did it as a joke. Either you need your brother to fix it or you need to find a way to survive the fall, make a bed and move your spawn. This would probably require you to log in as someone else or persuade someone to put water under your spawn point. ...

Your school has a firewall that is preventing you from installing Minecraft. The only way to work around this issue is to do your homework at school so you can play Minecraft when you get home. Alternatively, you can forget about your homework and whatever else you are supposed to be learning on your school computer and run Minecraft from a USB Drive: ...

No, they can't. They cannot use any mechanism without the help of redstone or stuff like pressure plates for wooden doors.

It actually is usable. However, please note that most of the 1.8 blocks have not been implemented yet. MCEdit Site (Beta build page): http://www.mcedit.net/changes/0.1.8build799.html This is the support for 1.8 blocks in MCEdit; practically close to none. 1.8 works fine. Alternatively, you can run a locally hosted Bukkit server and install WorldEdit ...

As far as I know, it is not in the AI of the bats to have "driveable" controls, so no, it can't be "driven". But this command should work: /summon MinecartRideable ~ ~1 ~ {Riding:{id:"Bat"}} As for making it invincible, I'm not entirely sure if this will work (won't be able to test it until I get home) /summon MinecartRideable ~ ~1 ~ ...

This is impossible for now, unless using special plugins (when you are running a Bukkit server or something like that). You can only get your own coordinates by using F3. Sole_Wolf commented that you can use the Bukkit plugin MapCoOrds if you are running a server in the possible duplicate passage that I suggested. You can also use a map to see other ...

I think the best way is to obtain a lead and attach them to a fence outside your entrance or door.

According to the Wiki, feeding the "Breeding Item" for that animal takes of 10% of the remianing time for them to grow up Baby animals grow into full sized animals after twenty minutes (one game day, beds notwithstanding). Their growth can now slowly be accelerated using the animal's breeding item, where each use takes 10% off the remaining time to grow ...

No. Villagers can only open and close wooden doors, but they cannot open and close fence gates. You can, of course, set up a fence gate, but the villagers may try to escape through that opening when you open the fence gate. A better way to trade with villagers is to set up a booth-like thing: F-Fence V=Villager FFF FFF FVFFFFVF FVVVVVVF FFFFFFFF This ...

No, villagers are not able to use fence gates. I tested this in creative, and they always used a long route with a door rather than a short route with a fence gate. I even blocked off the door and they just stood there.

MCEdit was last updated by Codewarrior (the original creator) on the 10th of March with dev build 0.1.8build799. This means that any blocks added since then appear as purple tiles without their proper texture. An image of an acacia fence: MCEdit can still place, copy, remove, etc. all of the new tiles no problem. The only issues is that they do not have ...

Sounds like you've slightly over-modded the game there... Check compatibility between mcheli and the other 40 mods, find out which ones it is not compatible with and disable them. You could even inform their developers to let them know. OR disable mcheli

Villagers use the Profession and Career tags to determine their type, as detailed on this wiki page. Profession ranges from 0 (Farmer) to 4 (Butcher) and determines the skin of the villager. Trades and actual job are determined by Career, the range and meaning depend on the profession. /summon Villager ~ ~ ~ {Profession:0, Career:1} /summon Villager ~ ~ ~ ...

After update 1.7.9, the skin system changed (Mentioned Here I think), if you're on that version with an old skin it could pose a problem. Try this to convert your skin if it is needed. Otherwise i'm clueless..

By the looks of your texture pack, it seems the game is trying to wrap an 8x8 skin around a 32x32 body. Usually Minecraft would catch that and keep it from contorting, but for an unknown reason it didn't. Try disabling the texture pack, restarting the game, or upload the default Steve skin and re-upload your own. Hope this helped. EDIT: If all else fails, ...

Assuming you don't need to have the pistons extended at all times, use a pulse limiter on each side. Then pistons will only be "on" (i.e. extended) for a short period. Update: I assumed both sides were being triggered by a lever, and one side has a NOT GATE before the pulse limiter.

Minecraft automatically installs to C:Users\Username\AppData\Roaming on Windows. If you cannot find Roaming, try going to Control Panel-Folder Options-View and then select "Show hidden files and folders." Also, certain modpacks will install to different directories.

Context: In the Minecraft 14w08a, a snapshot between 1.8 and 1.7, you can now test for an item in a player's inventory by clearing 0 items of that type, as in the snapshot, it added the ability to specify the number of items to remove. /clear [Player] [Item] [Data] [Count] [NBT Tags] Except, it means that we have to identify the person and there is no ...

No, your Saves folder on Windows will always be located at: %APPDATA%\.minecraft\saves Try this: Open %APPDATA% in Explorer Right-click the .minecraft folder and select Properties Click the Previous Versions tab Choose the most recent version listed and click Restore... Those steps will only work if you have System Restore / Backups enabled.

Bad video card drivers! ----------------------- Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode. This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers. --- BEGIN ERROR REPORT 7fe0271 -------- Generated 11/21/14 6:38 PM Minecraft: Minecraft 1.0.0 OS: Windows 8 (x86) version 6.2 Java: 1.8.0_25, ...

This is probably a performance issue. First of all, try different video settings. Such as turning Fancy to Fast if it's on, no smooth lighting and render distance to minimal chunks. Just try scrolling through them and see what the effect is on your performance. If that does not help, check your ram allocation using F3, and look in the upper-right corner ...

What you are looking for looks something like this: {Inventory:[{id:minecraft:written_book,tag:{pages:[0:"\"Test\""]}}]} But the teleport command does not support NBT tags. However, there is a workaround using scoreboards. First add a scoreboard objective: /scoreboard objectives add HoldingBook dummy HoldingBook Then run these 2 commands on a fast ...
