In Minecraft, when I exit a minecart, I often lose half a heart (sometimes even more). But occasionally I don't get harmed. I wasn't able to find a rule, what to do to exit the cart unharmed ... is there a specific point to look at? Or something to do?

If there is only one block of headroom above the cart, the player will take half a heart of damage as he bangs his head on the ceiling.

    Technically it's not banging your head, it's suffocating!

    the difference is that head banging involves a lot more heavy metal

    So it's head banging if the ceiling is iron or gold blocks. May 31, 2011 at 18:18

    @Alex: It doesn't always involve heavy metal. It depends on the material of the ceiling. Sometimes, normal rock can be enough to bang your head on.

    @Alex: And with 'rock' I was referring to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_music ;)
