problem there Terra. Minecraft's Y axis is actually the Z axis ...

Because F*** cartesian coordinates THATS WHY!

Hmmm... that's a good point.

Ah well, it's better than my original idea of taking a screenshot, circling (and rather poorly, too... we're talking about doing this in MSPaint) the "Y" coordinate on a map, and writing (again, rather poorly): "Here it is!".

lol yeah. tbh i can't for the life of me figure out how notch/jeb whoever the hell did it got the coords so F***ed up.

first thing they taught me in CAD, machining and robot tech at college. (not to mention high level maths at school)

the Z axis is the spindle axis and is always perpendicular to X and Y. lathes are kinda funny though. they don't have a Y axis.

When you're dealing with programmers that had the sun rising in the North, and setting in the South (before it was changed, due to some very... vocal members of the community)... frankly, I'm not surprised, at all, by the Y and Z axis being swapped.

Look, just because you think somebody is trolling, you don't have to be complete jerks about it. What if the guy's seriously confused about how navigation works? That's the biggest problem with GameFaqs, not the trolls, the jerks who accuse everybody of trolling.

And the genuine trolls suck too.

Undisplayed is the boy who cried troll. Every other post from him is declaring someone a troll.
If you call anyone salty, butthurt, kid, or basically any other internet insult i will just assume you are a complete idiot, and treat you as if you are.
