Minecraft, what is LAN what is WAN?

Standard

If you want to play with others on the same local network (LAN), google how to find your local IP for your operating system.

If you want to play with people NOT in your network, you have to either

  • play over a virtual private network using e.g. Hamachi (that CAN be a bit of a hassle, though, as those programs usually need to be installed for all players and sometimes malfunction, too)
  • or you need to forward the ports Minecraft uses in your router (which can also be a bit of a hassle due to various firewalls). There’s lots of info on that in the Google as well.

The IP for people not in your local network is different from your local IP,

  • for Hamachi it’s a dedicated Hamachi IP that would be displayed in the program
  • in case you port-forward, you have to google your global IP, there are websites that display it to you.

Note that you shouldn’t give your global IP to people you don’t trust, i.e. don’t post it somewhere public.

Villager won’t take profession?

Standard

So basically i got one villager in my base. I brought him from a breeder. I give him a lectern and a bed, even a door, but he’s not picking the profession. I tried giving him a different profession, but he still doesn’t take the profession. What do I do?

Is it a normal villager or a nitwit?

Wait, are there nitwits after 1.11? I mean he came from the breeder just like all of the others. When i right click him nothing happens. He doesn’t do the nod.

I don’t know but they can bred. Make a new house and hope for the best.

Minecraft 1.15 the autistic update

Standard

1 in 64 chance of spawning with autism.

If spawned autistic …

  • your character will rock back and forth consistently.
  • trade with villagers will be slightly more expensive (as you cant relate to them).
  • Near a sea lantern or glow stone you receive a weakness and nausea effects, as bright lights make you anxious. receive the same effects if you hear a creeper hissing, a ghast screaming, or any form of explosion.
  • when in 3rd person you’ll see your character performing tics, such as flapping arms, repeatedly smacking skull, screaming
  • when you go to sleep in a normal bed, you’ll wake up with a new effect called restless. (which is negative, and will remain in effect unless comforted with an object such as fidget spinners, rubik’s cubes, and fidget cubes…etc)

Putting a bed in a crafting table with an iron bar will give you a weighted bed, a bed with a weighted blanket, and the restless effect will not apply.
