I was wondering about using the console commands in single player, is it possible? I had an idea after watching a youtube video of someone making obsidian. I may be mistaken but i am sure i saw someone make a lava flow. Making a lavaflow and a waterfall together would make an never ending obsidian generator. I found a massive cave by plugging a water course and following it down, there was more diamond than iron in there and tons of redstone and about the same amount of gold as i have iron. It seems iron is more rare on this map than diamond... at the moment. Not saying diamond is not rare so you get how little iron i have. Anyway, as i followed to water courses lower and lower i found lava and used a bucket to quench them into obsidian. I have been mostly using stone picks and the occasional iron one for redstone diamond and gold but now i have a fair bit of diamond i am wondering if obsidian can be mined with a diamond pick? I found a dungeon and i was in peaceful mode and i looted the chests and mined up all the green cobble and then i turned my attention to the steel cage with fire in it in the centre of the room. I thought i might be able to take it with me so i used a pick to break it... and it broke. No block, gone. Then i found out what it was. I don't suppose i can spawn one of these with the console i spoke of up there? I found a great way to get gunpowder from creepers. Make a big pool of water 2 blocks deep and lure them into it. When you kill them, their fuse goes out and they drop gunpowder... most of the time. I found a hallelujah mountain. More to follow.
