Looking For Minecraft Files[edit source]

Is there a specific way to navigate minecraft files? I know where very few files are located, mainly files that help with texture packs and small mods but I am looking for more specific files.
I am searching for the minecraft files that hold the java script inside them. I would like to find and edit a few scripts to attempt to change some things. For instance, the boat.. I would love to make the physics of the boat and steering much better, where could I find this script/file? I have located the .png, but that is of no use. --Throex 18:25, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Use MCP and JDK to decompile your minecraft jar into files that are in Java rather than Jibberish. You can find this sort of information on the forums and using google --HexZyle 05:44, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I found both of those programs but have no experience in java coding at all. Guess I will have to learn as I go. Really want to start making a small mod to help myself learn. I hate tutorials, I like to just mess and edit the code and see what happens, thats how I teach myself. Just through trial and error. Thanks for the info though. --Throex TALK|CONT 18:25, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Problem with the Sidebar?[edit source]

I noticed in your screenshot http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/File:D2.png that you still have the sidebar that covers 20% of the right hand side of your page. If this is annoying for you I can fix it for you. --HexZyle 06:18, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I have noticed a few vector.java codes around the Wiki and actually set on up at one point, but I didn't want to lose the "recent articles" section. I could careless about the mojang twitter feed but I don't use the forums at all but at the same time I just enjoy the Digital Diamond and other videos/post they put up there so I removed it. I cba to go to the forums to check, so if it is possible to take away the AD/Mojang feed then I would love the help in getting rid of those. If there a way to possible make the recent articles smaller? Smaller font, box and such? --Throex 18:27, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, anyway you could teach me how to make a siggy? One for my t/c pages in it and maybe a color added to it? I just don't understand java and have even tried to do this myself. Also, I played around for vector.js the other day and couldn't really figure much out. haha, I am a java nub. --Throex 18:34, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Have a look here for some ideas. P.S. I used calinou's and TheKax's signature as the base for mine, just edited a bit of the code. Play around with it for a bit, you'll figure out what all the commands mean. -->>HexZyle<< TALK|CONT 19:50, 10 October 2011 (UTC)~
Ok, I figured out how to make the signature and display my sub-pages on my profile. I am beginning to understand more about this. You can make sub-pages with the information and then use smaller commands to pull that information. Kind of like using a variable in pph/sql. Am I getting closer to understanding this stuff?? --User talk:Throex/Signature
Also, I figured out how to make it smaller, but does this mean now I sign pages with brackets and the page name inside it? For instance.. ((/Signature)) would display it? (if those were brackets) or is there a simpler way? --Throex 20:18, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
You can copy it to your preferences page to the "signature" field, so that whenever you type ~~~~ it draws it from there. Use <nowiki> and </nowiki> to show symbols like } without them converting into wikipedia functions. Also, if you just type {{/signature}} that will work on your page, but it won't work on other pages, say Talk:Enderdragon. Your signature will try to pull the code from Talk:Enderdragon/Signature so therefore include the full directory for versatility when using your signature: {{User:Throex/Signature}}. Have a look at other peoples sigs and you will discover what each thing does. Like you discoverd how to change the colour, <sup> (superscript), <sub> (subscript), <small>, the '''bold''' and ''italic'' can all be used in signatures too. Anything that is wiki coding that is used on other pages can be used in your sig. --HexZyle 23:56, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
So you can either post your full signature in the signature preference to make your signature sticky (old signatures remain that way) or you can make it retroactive by putting the link to your signature page in the signature preference. (Whenever you change your sig, all instances of your signature will update). This has a drawback, however, mentioned User talk:HexZyle#Watchlist_and_signature which i overcome by only using my custom signature sparingly, when i want to make myself known. --HexZyle 23:59, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Alright, so I suppose I did this correctly. Thanks a lot for the help, just explaining the signature to me has helped so much in other areas. So lets see if ~~~~ will work correctly for me this time. Also, the side bars..is there a way to hide Mojang Tweets and the ad, but make the Recent Articles smaller? --Throex TALK|CONT 01:21, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, can't help you there. I only know a miniscule amount of coding. html coding or whatever it is called and pseudocode is the limit of my knowledge --HexZyle 04:15, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, copying the chunk of code into your sig pref has a drawback: Whenever you make a comment, even a small one, it becomes quite large due to the code in the signature. You can see this in effect on pages where TheKax has frequently been. His signature is three lines of code in itself. (well, until i suggested to him about using a template) --HexZyle 04:18, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I see, but didn't I use a template buy making User:Throex/Signature? Or is a template something different? How would I keep from having 3 lines of code for my siggy in the post? Or is it impossible when using the sig pref? -Throex TALK|CONT 04:54, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Ok, a template is a page that a link calls text from. Therefore if I have a page User:HexZyle/Template:Signature with my signature on it, I can draw that signature out by calling it with template code (with wavy brackets) with this command: {{User:HexZyle/Template:Signature}} to create >>HexZyle<< TALK|CONT. By changing the square brackets to wavy brackets, you change the link to the actual page. Well, not the actual page, but a piece of code that goes to that page, and drags the info to be visible on the current page.
When setting your signature preference (or whatever it is called), you are setting what ~~~~ will be converted into whenever you type it. If you wanted you could write "poo" into that box and whenever you write ~~~~ you would end up with the word poo on the page. Now, you can either throw a chunk of code into that box, and have it spit that out every time you type ~~~~. This means that you can edit your signature by opening up your preferences and changing it there. However, that will only take effect on new signatures you create, as the old ones are just pieces of code sitting on the page. BUT, if you use a template in your preferences, like {{User:Throex/Signature}} every time you type ~~~~ it will spit out {{User:Throex/Signature}}. This means that whenever someone opens the page with that code on it, that code will fetch your current signature from User:Throex/Signature. Using this simple method you can have a signature that automatically updates itself on all the pages whenever you update your signature page. Beware that this cause huge vandalisation by someone who knows how it works, so keep a close eye on the signature template page.
If you have ever used a typerbot (program that writes entire words or sentances whenever you type a combination of letters, like whenever i write "wth" it would delete "wth" and replace it with "what the hell") this will all make a lot more sense --HexZyle 05:27, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

My Page[edit source]

In the Specifications section of my profile page I have my version, options and mods listed but it is beginning to become long and stretching my page out. Is there a way to make it into columns? For instance, having the version and options on the left side and then next to it in another column having the mods installed and optifine options? --Throex TALK|CONT 22:50, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Enderdragon?[edit source]

My theory in The End[edit source]

Lol, I guess I was wrong about the obsidian spikes in the end being placeholder blocks. It seems likely they're official, and I wasn't too sure if they were or weren't, but it was worth a guess. Tis a shame it had to be obsidian and not another new block type, though. MrLeonov 22:43, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Anything can seem official at this point with the 1.9 features but now that the coding freeze is in effect, Notch could change anything between now and the final release. I honestly don't think the end will be ANYTHING like it is right now. That was a test.. No one else seems to want to believe that. But the "white stone" and obsidian could be replaced with new blocks on the final release of the game. Then again.. it could remain the way it is. I don't see how obsidian being in the end makes any sense.. but I will go with it for now. I got a few great theories about the 1.9 updates/final release when the game comes out myself.. Also.. remember when the nether came out, I saw no use for it except fast travel, due to the fact you could go twice the distance once you came back out of it. That is a nice feature that many people don't use to explore around the map. Now that we have new features coming to the Nether, the nether will be a staple of any users game play, the end.. will have NONE. Like it does now.. then slowly it will have new and better things coming out. Another thing.. I don't see why Notch would make Enderdragons "tear" up the land in the over world, but in the end.. it can't destroy white block..? If they will never come to the over world whats the point? I see huge things coming to the game.. It could make/break them at this point with some of the new features like dragons/potions.. A lot don't like it and a lot do like it.. We will just have to see. Sorry for the long post. lol Just felt like putting it out there. --Throex TALK|CONT 23:30, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
The Enderdragon essentially prevents any foreign substances from being made into bases in the End. If you build a house out of Cobblestone in the end, the Enderdragon would annaihlate it. This way the Enderdragon can prevent you from making Dragon traps and endermen grinders in The End. Also, you might like to know that the Nether transports you 8 times as far as the Overworld. Such an amazing feature it is. --HexZyle 05:29, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
