I have been playing on the survival server for a bit now, and ive noticed that you cant make a book n quill, and you cant make golden nuggets, you have to buy them if you need them. What is that about? Its survival, why cant you make everything??
I think crafting books and quills was disabled a while back due to people being able to exploit with them somehow, not just on Survival but on all servers. Whether the bug still hasn't been fixed or the crafting recipe was forgotten to be enabled again I don't know.
