  • Ah yes, KSP is always a good source of interesting constructs (and their failures).

"Wheatley, what have you done?!" - I never expected him to betray me like that. GLaDOS seems happy to see me though for some reason in

Oh no, not this again...

    @Joachim The moment you realize what Weathley has just done - seing GLaDOS being back - a "oh no, please no" moment.

    My point was that that disaster was a long time ago. This is potentially moments before disaster.

Uplink Game Over Screen

...ah. I suppose that's what I get for trying to cover up a transfer in the international bank.

    Fun facts: 1. The misspelling of "seized" has not been fixed since 2001. 2. The blackscreen that precedes this is the scariest screen in gaming. 3. I'd been playing this save file for a good 5 hours at this point, and this was my first attempt at a bank hack in a good few years. Clearly I still need more practice.

A while ago, I thought about which block would be best for scaffolding. It should be producible in large amounts, insta-mineable, placed like a normal block, etc., which leaves these options:

  • slime/honey: can't jump normally on top
  • End rods: awkward to walk on when placed sideways
  • flower pots: gaps to fall through

… and finally: TNT. Nothing wrong with that! So I decided to use TNT for scaffolding and temporary blocks from then on. It went really well for many weeks, I even emptied the water from a swamp by moving a dam of TNT through it, but one day I transported a shulker into the Overworld, over an ocean and into my base, duplicated it a few times and then boxed all of them in with some temporary block: TNT. Then, to transport them into a farm, I placed some rails… and… powered them… oh no…

    To answer your question: I would suggest using scaffolding as scaffolding.

    @Kevin That's one of the reasons why I wrote "placeable like a normal block". Scaffolding placement is super weird. And even if I got used to it, I can still sink into it when sneaking, which is a very common activity on scaffolding blocks. And it's affected by gravity after going out a certain distance. And I don't have a large bamboo farm. Despite the name, scaffolding is actually a worse scaffolding block than TNT. Currently I'm back to what I used in my early days on the server BTW: Netherrack. But often I don't need any scaffolding, elytra momentum exploits let me get almost anywhere. Mar 9 at 9:24

    It is better in a couple ways, though. It's way cheaper, and it almost never explodes

  • Re sneaking: The whole point of scaffolding placement being "super weird" is so that you can bridge without sneaking. It is inconvenient if you want to bridge beyond the support limit, though, so it depends on the surrounding landscape. It's good if you have a ton of scaffolding blocks and are not trying to build too high above the ground (or have some sort of temporary platform made of dirt or netherrack), because when you exceed the limit, the extra scaffolding falls and you can use this behavior to build support pillars.
