This was in my lair under Mob Hill a couple of minutes ago. They're unkillable. They're unstoppable.

Wow, eggs don't work against slimes. I pissed this big guy off by launching 16 eggs into him. It didn't do anything but make chickens.

Slimes suck! A simple trip to retrieve some lava in a well lit cave became a mad dash scramble back to recover dropped items when a baby slime pushed me into lava.

Just the principle of them sucks -- you could occupy a significant fraction of the servers allowed malevolent mobs by attacking a slime.

Until this is all cleared up, i need to find closer to surface sources of lava. also: i wonder what mushroom crater looks like.

Oh and Maciej: are you returning to your estate at some point in the future?

So tonight was death by slime night! I ended my fight against the slimes with this bad boy! 4x4 slime! REALLY?!?!



They are such a pain though these baddies are grateful!

Isn't the altitude sufficient to stop spawning?
Or has that changed?

The bottom of the collector area is actually at bedrock... and given their seeming advanced path finding algorithm compared to the other mobs, i wouldn't put it past them to find their way up.

Yeah, this guy managed to follow us up a ladder and then to my door. See that thing a few posts up! It has death written all over it. Cost me a diamond sword, pick and watch among other lesser items.

I hadn't thought of the pressure plate being the problem. It's going to be going now though for sure.

Ok, one more:

Bryson, meet slimes:


Sadly, this event crippled my trap. I hope I can repair it. I just need the slimes to hold out long enough for me to do so. I did cordon off the baddies with dirt clods though.

The perfect quote on the screenshot, too!

Sorry, I think the slimes pushed me close enough that I set off the gang of creepers in the trap.

No problem on the trap. It's mostly fixed now. I noticed some more places I need to put glass, but I'm not going there until the update fixes our invincible slime issue.

It's not bad enough that they won't die but the sheer numbers of them are insane. Really kills working in the lower mines.

BB, I have slimes in the second level too. If I were to move the grinder section it'd have to be to the third level to be free some slimes.

I've seen this multiple times now, for far longer than the occasional lapse used to be. I'm guessing it's a bug in 1.4.

So I think bbsky was right about the hostile mobs being related to an error with slimes.
Trap dried up again and i put on some xray specs, heres what i found at the bottom of the stairs of insanity:

So after seeing this post I B-Lined to the Stairs and went to battle.



I killed off every single one of them! Then after eating much pork (good thing I'm Paleo! ) I headed to the communal trap. The trap was totally silent when I got here but now I'm seeing activity. Not massive mind you, but activity. It would have been better to have someone here though because the trap wouldn't normally be active while I'm that far away. At the time I got to the trap, 709 had just logged off leaving only me on the server.

Few lessons learned:
1) Aim for the base of big slimes. Seems their target area is the bottom blocks. I had plenty of chances to test this theory.
2) Slimes aren't client side anymore. In the past a game exit and reentry would make the smile go away, not so anymore. The slimes were exactly as posted in the image two up. This shows they are now server side completely.
3) Armor does little against these things. Just don't let them touch you! Aim for the base.
4) Keep lots of cooked pork handy if you're going after a hoard of them like I just did!

So who else has mines this deep near BP?
