Nothing is undetectable. However i'd imagine storage minecarts are slightly more secure than normal chests. don't be fooled though, if someone wants to find your stuff, they will.
But put some distance between you and spawn and you become relative save.
I've build multiple bases, none seem to be raided so far (not that long though)
And all are within 10k.
Whoever Harblax is, I need to thank him (he said he had an FP acc) for making a stocked newbie base :D
- Any player who passes within render distance of your chests, regardless of actual vision and line-of-sight on your area is able to see all chests you may have placed.
Play accordingly and long for the day when such hacking becomes impossible. :)
Edit: This is why distance from spawn is the largest factor in determining "safeness" of an area. Basically, as you travel outwards from spawn, the pure random percent change that a player will stumble onto your base is determined by dividing the render area of any given player by the total area of a ring drawn around spawn with radius as your current distance from spawn and edge width the size of a player's render distance. That is, as you move X blocks from spawn in radial distance, your chance of being found by pure random luck decreases linearly.
Example: You are 10,000 blocks from spawn. The "hacker" is on render distance "Far" = 10 chunks in all directions from himself loaded = 160 block radius loaded. 160 x 160 = 25,600 block area loaded at any time. For the hacker to find your base, his loaded area has to align with the total area covered by your base, which for simplicity, we will say is a single block :) So there are 25,600 different X/Z paired blocks that the hacker can be located at and still technically see your base through hacking. Now the total area at your distance is calculated as following: Area = (Spawn_Distance + 160) * (Spawn_Distance + 160) - (Spawn_Distance - 160) * (Spawn_Distance - 160) = 10160*10160 - 9840*9840 = 103225600 - 96825600 = 6,400,000 total X/Z coordinate pairs that overlap a block at 10,000 "radius" from spawn (any block at X = 10k or Z = 10k). So by pure random chance, the hacker has a 25600/6400000 = .004 probability = .4% chance to come within range of your base. By the same math, being at 20k, the hacker would have a .2% chance, 100k = .04% chance, 1M = .004% chance, etc.
TL;DNR: Felt like doing math. Get away from spawn for safety. Hacking is dumb and sucks :( Keep your coordinates safe. Log out carrying enough valuables assuming you'll never see your base again. Have fun.
okay so who stole my bed from the small castle near 2k2k huh
If you really want to hide your shit, try use one of them 'hook' shapes in bedrock, and cover with lava. You can also make a room with like 1million furnaces, and store your stuff in certain furnaces, I doubt an intruder will check every single one ;). Another good tactic is to find a mob spawner with the mossy cobble stone, and hide ur stuff in there. Any passerby will just ignore thinking its just a normal mob spawner with a few iron bars in the chest. You could also hide your stuff above the ceiling in the nether
Once me and my friends get to my base, I'm going to try to make some checkpoints with wheat for all you FPers. I'll denote them with a torch inside a tree, so look for them at night. Dig under the tree and you'll fall into some water with wheat around it, maybe a chest and crafting table or something too.
So I heard theres a new Facepunch base?
Me and amazer are stuck in the nether near the new base. Help us please!
going for 100k/100k wish me luck
im still here so if you remember the date ill put yours back
shit it sounds like i took it down but i didnt
Posting to thank coldwave mailbox and especially harblax for setting up a newfag base <3
Yeah, thanks you guys
Wheres it at, just died lost everything.
1012798x 60068z have fun
i finally have a bed holy SHIT
now i dont have to worry about dying lmao
I finally made a little progress on doing anything!
I found some wood around 64 -2000.
Unfortunately, I died trying to kill some zombies for their flesh before I could make a bed.
Also I went to the top of spawn and jumped which was pretty cool.
A guy in diamond armor gave me 4 pieces of bread in spawn so I can live.
I'm down to 2 breads and i'm only 1k out. I don't know if I'll make it
The nether is the fastest way to travel.
Be aware, if you say you are pretty much exact 10k or 20k out somebody does not need
to search the whole area, just the border. Which is much much less as what you calculated.
To protect yourself against this, don't tell the exact distance but be wrong for at least 5k
I just found a "Base Facepunch" with a pointing arrow, I will follow that direction for a while.
(It's as good as any other and I'm just nomadic for now anyway)
edit: and don't actually stay in the main/visible part of the base, make a small hideout at distance where you log
out. You never know if there's lava if you return (keep a bucket of water to)
Spawn is covered by cobble, and when I try to dig through the cobble reappears instantly. What do?
are there no ways out? From the outside I could look a bit in from something
like 15,15 or 20,20.
If you can reach that, there on there is a way out. I couldn't get in more than that,
but last night others made it out. (I helped one through a own tunnel I made, not far
Yeah. And I'm completely boxed in, there's zero way out of here
Any client I could use to get out of there?
What a bummer.
(nodus seems to be hacking client, but I never tested)
I only use minimap
I can get more close to spawn, but doubt I can seriously do something there.
Not sure how long I stay online to.
edit: for now, offline. If you make it out, +x, +z there's usually wheat + trees not to far away.
(Don't run to much, you can walk much longer as you can run)
