How Item Filters Work

I keep seeing tutorials on building filters, but no one explains how they work, so I tried my hand at it.

Downward Piston Mining

I get into spots where I need to dig downwards, I’ve gotten some feedback that this technique isn’t well known.  You can use pistons to push blocks downwards and sideways to tunnel down and into lava!

Capturing Skeleton Horses

Lucas and I got ambushed with skeleton riders one day, we captured them so we could add them to our collection. Here’s the adventure!

Raiding the Stronghold!

Lucas and I raided the stronghold!  We found it with eyes of ender, and it turns out it’s actually surface exposed in an underwater ravine.  I set up a conduit to make exploration easier and in we went.  It turns out cnc already found it, but hadn’t found the end portal yet…because it was SO HIDDEN.  This was a huge stronghold and we think we raided all of it.  We found the end portal once, I recorded the coordinates, kept exploring…then completely lost it.  I had to dig towards the coordinates to find it again.

Nevertheless it’s done, and we made a VERY LONG video documenting it.  It was an experiment in creating video assets and using replay mod…I hope the video quality goes up over time.

Capturing a Piglin Brute

I have been doing some WILD stuff lately, but the thing that has always bothered me is that, as an owner/op…I could do any of this in creative, or with commands. THAT ISN’T FAIR. So, I’ve been filming the things I’ve been doing as PROOF that it was done in a way that could be done by anyone in vanilla.

I recently got a brand new computer (I’ve been playing on a computer I bought in 2010 lol) so now I can film better; I also switched from optifine to optifabric, so I have replaymod now for cooler videos. EXPECT MORE VIDEOS AND SOME PRODUCTION TO THEM.

That being said, this is not one of those well-produced videos…this is a raw recording of Lucas and I capturing a Piglin Brute. I didn’t even think to put my brightness up lol. The NGC (Nether Gateway Command) is our nether gateway at spawn, and I want agents operating the facility (like SGC agents in Stargate). A piglin brute, being EXTREMELY rare and not respawnable without commands, seems like a terrible waste to kill. We found a bastion and tunneled to it, and then decided to bring back a brute (and maybe more) to operate the NGC. I almost screwed up massively and brought our friend through to the overworld…where he would have zombified and been a total waste. But for now, we went to the bastion, got him in a boat, made our pathway, then had him chase me back to spawn.

You’ll see some of the…challenges…playing with a 6 year old in this video (and I used an admin command to get him his stuff back when he died :/ ) but the video is a showcase to prove I GOT BRUTUS BACK TO SPAWN WITHOUT DYING AND WITHOUT CHEATS. Enjoy!
