I found an abandoned mineshaft under an Ocean Temple (I love exploring mineshafts)

*EDIT* in Arda this was **

Before 1.8 creepers, as far as I know didn't destroy blocks, either in or outside of claims (apparently sometimes on the edge of a claim they do)

but as I was exploring, some creepers I encountered blew up, and destroyed the blocks around it, okamat was online at the time, and I called her when I found some more creepers, she saw herself the creepers destroying blocks.....

This only seems to be happening Underground, I tested on the surface down to level 60, but creepers didn't destroy any blocks when exploding...

 

Thanks for your time

This may be a change to GP.

Just to clarify, for info gathering, was this underground area claimed or not?

Regardless of 1.7 or 1.8, Creeper explosions are only mitigated above sea level. If there is a claim, the mitigation will extend downward to the claim's extent (depending on how down one builds).

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams

I have also experienced issues with creeper explosions on the edge of my claims. Somehow it allows them to blow up if they are in the right spot!

Yep, old GP bug. If the creeper explosion crosses the edge of a claim, a few blocks outside the claim can be destroyed. Minor really considering the annoyance creepers are in vanilla. Also one more incentive to increase claim sizes and add a buffer zone :) .

This was in an area that was NOT claimed. And this was in Arda not OR or SR

Do you mean to say that before we changed to 1.8 Creepers was supposed to destroy blocks underground (not in a claimed area) ? Because that wasn't the case, they could blow up and they didn't destroy any blocks before the move to 1.8. (this is unclaimed areas im talking about, I understand the building downwards part for claimed areas)

 

If this is how GP was meant to work in 1.7 then I guess we just have to get used to it now.

Just thought I would post, in case it was a bug :)

 

Thanks for your help guys :)
