How high does lightning spawn? My current abode sits above the clouds and I'm wondering if it can be struck by lightning. Is there some level lightning appears or does it come from the "top" of the sky?
8Corollary: If you build in a pit (say down near bedrock), can you still get struck by lightning?– Nick TApr 22, 2011 at 16:23
It comes down the "top" of the map, I have been struck by lightning at the top of a tall tower before!
I'm not sure whether a bedrock level pit would allow you to survive, going to test this now
I was in the bottom of my pit mine today and got
hit killed by lightning, then immediately thought of this post. -_-
4No update in a day, looks like soulBit didn't survive.– user3389Apr 23, 2011 at 17:17
Heh, i'm OK! I never ended up finding thunder storm to test this :(– soulBitApr 23, 2011 at 17:49
Induce one!– fredleyApr 24, 2011 at 11:00
127, and it vertically strikes at the first solid block below. This logic is unrelated to how it is rendered.
If you have proof of this, there's another question that could use your help. Jun 5, 2011 at 16:29
@Nick I've answered that.– xfsJun 5, 2011 at 21:11
