    The reason why it showed different numbers for dirt mine and picked up is cause grass block don't count as dirt blocks mined, but if mined with regular shovel (no silk touch) the drop as dirt.

    Honestly really impressive! I think if you got some of your friends together (or even just one friend) and did this you could really stand a good chance of completing it. Having someone collect dirt, iron and slime while you focus more of your attention on actually building the farm could certainly help. Not to mention not having to worry about getting more gear all the time

    I would look into the zombie-less iron farm by Phaestus the next time you plan on doing this challenge (or future challenges where hostiles are not the focus). It only works during the daytime but you can offset that by making more of these farms. Very simple and relatively painless (moving villagers >:V) Great video!

    13:16 Actually its because you mine grass too, and grass drops dirt. The grass you break is added to the total picked up amount of dirt, but not broken because it doesn't count as dirt.

  • Samuel Spear
    Samuel Spear 2 months ago

    Recommendation, maybe bring the layers a bit higher so you can place light sources (for example lanterns or shrrom lights) on the higher roof so the flying machines won't hit them it might not mess up melon rates, and it gets rid of jobs (Mostly?)

  • PalmDEV
    PalmDEV 2 months ago +1825

    Hey, this might not be helpful, but I noticed that you had to count all of the melons by hand.
    The 'carpet' mod for fabric by mojang employee 'Gnembon' has a feature that allows you to count large numbers of items for farms.
    Not only would it show how many melons you've farmed, it would also show you the average amount of melons produced per hour, allowing you to figure out how much longer it would've taken to meet your goal if you fail.
    Love the video, great concept! :D

      Acenova 2 months ago +4

      @Edgyalien Poh What do you suggest burning them just cause they get counted by a mod? I mean if you dont have the melons have you really farmed them in the end even the automatic farms are borderline cheating sure u make the farms but its not you farming the melons not having them in the end would be even worse. Not to mention the stat counts picked up so the 100k he had before using creative to count that was put back in a chest would be counted double, and at that point a couple full inventories dropped over and over again would be faster than farming new melons (ig doing it at the same time might give you more if you make the automatic farm to get your first few inventories since counting the melons in chests is after the 100 days)

    Id love to see how this concept could go if it was a few people and manual farming. A few people with a bunch of space, seeds, and silk touch axes. The silk touch would harvest whole melons which take up way less space than the slices. Idk if you could get to ten mil but this might be different

    you probably won't see this, but the reason you were picking up more dirt than you were mining is because you were mining grass without silk touch. it drops dirt, but doesn't count as mining dirt in the stats.

    I feel like spending some time to get light source blocks to light up the tracks that the hopper mine carts run on would have made this much easier for you. To prevent mobs like enderman & creepers from spawning on your platforms and messing with the operations of the farm. Regardless, you still almost QUADRUPLED YOUR PREVIOUS GOAL WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE

  • Baldi Seed Completionist

    Maybe there's a way to reach the mob cap near the melon farm so that you won't have to deal with the mobs being in the farm all the time, although the iron farm could be slower. (I don't know how that would work.)

  • Jello
    Jello 10 days ago +1

    The discrepancy between dirt blocks mined and dirt blocks picked up is because of grass blocks not counting as dirt blocks mined, but dropping dirt because you didn't have silk touch

    Might i suggest alleys if you try again? They are quite nice for collecting large amounts of items manually. They pick up while you break.
    For example, you good do the fastest dirt breaking while they go behind you. Just dont use too many at once, they'll throw at each other instead of you.

  • Noah

    The Early game seems pretty Optimised but i suggest building a bigger (or more) iron farm(s) and investing in a mob switch. Theres a very simple Mob switch by IanXO4 where you use silverfish inside of scaffolding to prevent entity craming if you make the iron farm before making the mob switch that should work fine. you would need to try to collect all the slime you need beforehand though but i feel like it would really speed up the building process aswell as letting you get enough iron. You can also improve the rates of the slime farm by adding brown mushrooms and adding a roof because this would let slimes spawn constantly and also stop other mobs from spawning. Im not sure if this is correct but the left over Melons could be because the hopper-minecarts were full (dont know if you tested the lenght for this or not)and could probably fix it by having a hopper minecart line under all of these lanes. Would be fun if you retried this i feel like with a tiny bit more planning this could ddefinitely be possible.

    You could potentially light netherrack on fire in the spaces between strips as a cheap light source to keep mobs away.

    You can also build an iron farm by throwing 2 villagers in a pit with food and 20 beds and 20 job blocks. Then a collection system for the golems on top. That way you can keep it in peaceful for the whole run

    You must already be considering this i think you'll need to add a Lil more layers to get light source or add pumpkin on the melon growing layers

    Maybe the inconsistency for the dirt mined is because grass blocks getting turned into dirt blocks are counted as grass blocks broken, but as dirt picked up.

    I know its a bit late but you can always find a zombie spawner and link it to the iron farm so you can turn to peaceful once and despawn all the mobs then go back to easy so the zombies stil get to their on their own and you dont worry about mobs

  • Teagan Rauch

    I looked it up, and apparently time doesn't pass for your character until you go back into the overworked. So you can probably just farm the melons in the end, and get all the melons in 2 days.

    A semi-automatic tree farm with tnt duping (if you allow glitches) might help!
    EDIT 2: You can spawnproof the farm (in 1.19) with 378 glowstone. Math at bottom.
    EDIT: I think trading for glowstone and redstone, (later lapis, xp bottles) from clerics could efficiently solve your iron, redstone, and mobs-destroying-things-and-dislocating-hopper-minecart-if-you-don't-turn-off-iron-farm problems (maybe also xp/lapis) by lighting up the farm (make it high enough up that mobs don't wander into it).
    Math estimate:
    Naively 60,000/(15*Pi^2) = 85 glowstone blocks to light up all the dirt. Assuming it's actually ~4 times that because of spacing problems and melon taxicab light blockage, but subtracting some since a block in the floor can help illuminate two layers, you need ~340 glowstone. Each farmer(sell them melons for emeralds)-cured cleric pair gives 24 glowstone/day, and you can easily make 3 with the six iron farm villagers, for ~72 glowstone (and a bunch of xp) per day. Set them and the iron farms up before your dirt shoveling, and even if you use fast method to get only ~60,000/(7000 dirt/day) = ~8.6 days of dirt shoveling, you still get 576 glowstone before you even start building! In practice, you'll probably do most of the trading while building the farm, only needing as much glowstone as needed to build the next section, since by then you'll have many melons to feed the farmers. But the excess emeralds can go to purchasing redstone, lapis, and xp bottles from the clerics---since you can get up to 48 redstone/cleric/day if you have the emeralds for it, and get some at the start of levelling, I think this solves your redstone problems, your iron problems, AND your mob problems (and maybe your need to return to the end for enchanting xp), which could very well make this worthwhile. (Make sure to practice infecting/curing villagers first though, it takes some skill to do cleanly).
    EDIT 2 math: This works only if you have 3 air blocks in between each layer (haven't worked it out for 4+ air between layers, but at most it requires twice as much glowstone). I saw 7 open "slots" in each farm layer, so it has 8 11-wide rows per layer and 4 layers. Since you need 60,000 dirt, 600000/11/8/4 = 170.45; divide by 9-long sections per water block for 18.9something water blocks per row. Round up to 19. To visualize the places the glowstone goes, go down the empty slot between each 11-wide row, and place a glowstone in the formerly-air-block-in-the-slot every time you have a farm water block to directly off to your right or left. Do the same with the two equivalent "slots" parallel to the 11-wide rows on either side of the farm; similarly extend the pattern 1 more glowstone block forward on the front and back of the farm. This takes (19+2)*(7+2)*4 = 756 glowstone. Now, destroy every other glowstone, making sure to stagger the destruction between each layer and row--leaving 378 glowstone. That's where you'd actually place the glowstone. I tested this in creative with worldedit, it works even when every melon-eligible slot is occupied by a melon.
    The same positioning works with torches, actually. 95 coal and 95 sticks might be faster to obtain on its own (especially if you pick up a fortune 3 pick), but I'm not sure it's faster overall considering you'd have to actively mine it. You can test that one :)
    Also, congrats on answering the question from the first video in the affirmative--it IS possible!

      If you let yourself view the seed, you can also use a slime chunk finder to find a slime chunk instead of a swamp. That could get you slimes faster---though that doesn't seem to be your main limitation here.
      The iron farm/mob tradeoff is a lot harder. You can do a bit better than halving the rates of mob spawn on the melon farm by building it at skylimit, but that's probably not worth it even with the elytra, since I'm not sure halving the mobs really halves the destruction, since they are attracted to you---and sky limit builds have their own challenges. So---is it possible to light up the farm as you build it, to get ZERO mobs? Torches are tough with your system, so I'm thinking either blocks or lanterns. I"m looking into the math on using villager trades for glowstone or lanterns, will add comment on that if it looks like this will be seen.

      @Marit helene Lie Which part is confusing? If it's the bit about mobs spawning less at higher y levels: I learned that while playing classic skyblock (and it is annoying to track down this information, I ultimately tested it myself in creative to be certain.). As I understand it, basically there's a point in the mob spawning algorithm (in 1.19, which I believe Rekrap switches to after the initial speedrun in presumably 1.16.1) where the game has selected a column (an x and z coordinate) to attempt to spawn a (hostile) mob in. It then randomly selects a y-coordinate between -64 and the highest non-air block in the column to get an exact block coordinate. It then checks if that block is a valid spawn point; if it isn't, it aborts the attempt.
      So if you build rekrap's farm as high as you can with the build height limit instead of at sea level, the algorithm goes from rolling from [-64to (64[sea level]+height of farm, ~estimate it at 20 blocks tall)] (~148 possibilities, with four of them being valid spawning locations inside rekrap's farm if it could have spawned something in the farm at all) to rolling [-64 to (320-height of one layer of farm)] (~380 possibilities, still only 4 of them inside rekrap's farm.). (4/380) / (4/148) = only 39% of the chance to pass that mob spawning step!

    The reason of the picked up dirt being bigger is due to grass blocks which are not counted in dirt block breaking but are counted in the picking up

  • Azaan Khan
    Azaan Khan Month ago

    the 'mining' and 'picking up' dirt numbers are going to be way different because many of the grass blocks count as grass blocks (not dirt) mined, but get picked up as dirt blocks.

    I think it says you've picked up more dirt than mined it because it counts dirt and grass blocks separately, but grass blocks drop dirt
