A heavy blippin' confession
I have a story to share.
It was a different time. Minecraft had just came out and was still in a pre-alpha state. There was weirdness galore. Introducing online multiplayer made it worse. Exacerbated it. Some bugs, some features. Creeper explosions didn't do anything and Zombies dropped feathers. A lot of these bugs came to be the enjoyment of many of us. Sure, jump off that bridge from the height limit, fall damage doesn't work. And then there was duping. A trick involving a chest in which by a small risk of losing an object, one might duplicate an object. Rinse and repeat until by the same small risk, duplicate a stack. Continue until the one diamond you found was a chest full of diamonds. The one ore of gold you mines was a chest full of gold bars. It wasn't cheating, it was in the software. An exploit you might say.
This knowledge came to me. I don't even remember how. There was such a small amount of items in the game and I had the power to have infinite amounts of them. But then what?
If you go back to that world, it has a sky bridge between builds. Right next to a pyramid that Hitman built, I had a small cave. Load that world and you'll find arches of diamond and gold. I couldn't help myself. Why go exploring for items when I have them all. What then? Take a look below the arches, you will find a sign:
> I learned how to dup items and it ruined the game.
I share that story to share this.
There was no auto clicker. No hacks. No editing files. No other software was used other than the game itself. I am not proud.
