You can make one in survival, it seems it is easier killing creepers because I find te character reaches farther! I'm also glad they added beds and chests!

I am also very happy about the inclusion of chests. Easier to save goods in case of death!

Based on my little knowledge of minecraft, you get farming seeds from grass right? I can't find any of that but is there any other way to get them besides going to creative mode?

It's now number 1 on the paid charts after being in the top 10 for months. Who would have thought? It's never been on sale before either. That brand name and those updates.

Doesn't surprise me - the game is coming along nicely - I just wish they'd add a little more room, I feel really cramped in 255x255! Multiplayer is great too. (The fact that you store a local copy of any world you connect to is a nice bonus!)

I found a way to farm! To me a while to realize that when you use a how on a grass dirt block, a green icon sometimes pops out. When ou dig out the block you get the seeds. May not work the first time but it definitely is there.




I'm talking about farming not the 'seed' where you put a word in the start of world creation.

Planning on upgrading to full version of Minecraft PE, just a few questions:

Can someone explain what seeds are? From what I've read online they're some kind of mods

Can u make the world bigger with seeds or add underground cave systems? How extreme can seeds be?

How do u use/activate seeds?

Also, are they planning to make the world bigger because the lite edition seems small in terms of map size?
Also, what is the Nether? I saw that the next update will add it to the pocket edition

Seeds are what value is fed into the world generation algorithm, meaning that if you create two worlds with the seed "TouchArcade" they will start out the same.

There are lists of interesting seeds online in various places, there's even apps that has PE/regular edition Minecraft seeds & descriptions.

You cannot expand the world size in PE. I'm really hoping they expand it at least a little bit, that would be my biggest request for the app.

Using an activating a seed on Minecraft PE is simple, you create a world and you'll be asked to name it and if you want to add a seed for the world generator. If you don't, you leave the box blank and hit create world. If you do, you type the seed in.

I believe they do plan on making the world bigger in the future, but not in the next update (0.5.0). In the full version, I don't think the world is any bigger than it is now, which is 255x255.

The Nether, on the PC version of Minecraft, is "hell." It has lava pools, and new mobs such as
zombie pigmen, magma cubes, and Ghasts. The Nether isn't being "added" to PE as far as my
speculations go, because reading the dev's tweets, theres something called a Nether reactor, which is very mysterious. All I can tell you, is, for the Nether addition, you'll be able to get the materials you would find in the Nether on PC on PE without actually going to the Nether using the reactor. The reactor consists of gold, iron, and diamond blocks, and in the next update, the only mob we'll be seeing from the Nether, as far as I know, is the zombie pigman. I reccomend to check out twitter.com/jbernhardsson or the Minecraft Wiki: Pocket Edition Upcoming Features pages.
