    So I'm going to let the cat out of the bag for this one since a couple people in particular have been quite rude to me lately. This trick is really OP for tracking and was kept secret for a while, but I'm hoping that if more people know it, then things might spice up a bit (not that I play). also stirring the pot a bit but shh

    So, this method of tracking essentially allows you to monitor the entire map in a very safe way, giving you insight of where people warp, and most importantly how long they spend at each warp. This can be done on any tracker setup, but this relatively basic tip really is op when put into practice, as you don't need to spend much time at your 'real' trackers that much.

    From my experience, I find that this design the most efficient with a total of 8 trackers. The first 4 will be your normal stacked trackers, which I suggest having them each set at 500 narrows, and each reaching 1/4 of the map in each quadrant - nothing is really new here. Now, here is the OP part. It sounds really stupid and basic at first, but once you get used to it, you will see that it will save your trackers from being raided + give you far more map knowledge when it comes to your enemies warps.

    Next, you want to set up a vanilla tracker a little ways away (I suggest 200-500 blocks away) from each stacked tracker, and have it reach the exact same area that your stacked/main trackers do. By doing this, you can then afk at these vanilla trackers, and just spam track on them (or use a macro (kappa)) and you can then see who warps where and for how long safely. I then usually just write down each players warp and how long they spent there, then just chase it down on my main stacked tracker corresponding to the vanilla one in the same area to narrow the warp down to your narrow.

    It is hardly more expensive, and will definitely make your main trackers safer, as they will essentially be less used and won't require as much time being spent there. If your vanilla scanner tracker does get tracked though, you can simply just rebuild it again in another nearby area - just being sure it tracks the exact same area as the stacked one.

    Happy raiding friends.

    Aquim tracked like that, I don't bother doing it since I have only lost trackers to auto macros:/
    But it's still a good tip if you aren't fast at tracking

    Eh. Not sure about this one my dude. Part of the fun of being a good tracker is learning about all these things yourself, and if its just given then eventually, anyone will be able to track. Theres a reason these things are secret :/

    Nice tip, but the real question is: when will you show me how to make those fancy iron trackers of yours :thinking:

    /shrug I don't really care tbh, more can always be discovered / new techniques can be made - this tip is quite simple, but helpful, and might help more people track (which is good).
    You can flip through some of my maps on build, it's on one of them there (look via purchases link).

    @Tuumai @pool @CalledXray ever heard of aquim? I don't hear him raging that ye used his design...
    Bruh even pool was bragging about using this design to me in pms before his X-ray tracking ban (back when he had a rep for being a good legit tracker lol)

    I swear kids care too much about their rep for tracking
    (even when they X-ray track they still want to claim to be good trackers )

    @Ry23an well clearly you either didn't understand what 0racle said, or he explained it in a bad way because what i used and what Auqium put in his videos are 2 different things :smile:

    @CalledXray and @pool please refrain from flaming in this thread. This is hardly a new concept - I’ve known of this since before I could even track since so many people used it on SPvP. Regardless, please discontinue the flame and if you wish to continue discussing the topic do so in a respectful manner or take it to PMs.

    What you describe in our pms, what Oracle describes and what aquim used in his video all match up

    It was clearly a joke about it being my idea as for the butthurt thing, kinda funny how you two are just going off on a temper tantrum over me simply sharing this tip (that others knew of for a while now). My apologies if it discredits your Minecraft clout, was just trying to expand some people's knowledge.

    PS, I only drop partied your stuff and gave away the trackers bc you two xrayed. Consider it community service alongside your rehabilitation. Your extreme reaction to it and the personal attacks encouraged me to share this secret. Call it unfair, idc, but so is xraying.

    Back on topic tho, hope you all can enjoy this tip and come up with new techniques along the way :grinning:
