Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has any tips or pointers to help me get this achievement since it's the last one i need.

I've rode a pig using a saddle many times but they just go round in circles and they never seem to fall down holes I know you can control them with a carrot and stick, but is this feature available on the xbox version?

Thanks

can you push mobs into carts in the xbox version?
if so, use minecarts

Build a very small fence around a pig, dig a big hole around the whole fence, take down the fence, ride the pig, fall, get Achievement!
Thats how I got it anyway, I just need the minecart one now

Good thinking, forgot about that. so just build some track, then go over a hole and end the track there so the pig/me/the minecart goes over the edge? thanks.

I had a similar idea but i didn't think about using fences probably my best bet to be fair.

No one seems to want to take advantage of the fishing rod. I've played solely on the PC since before Alpha, but I've recently gotten the Xbox version, and all of my friends on console have ignored its existence.

Use a fishing rod on a pig. Pull him towards you. Repeat until near a cliff. At this point, you can either:
A. Saddle him and hope he jumps off
B. Saddle him, pull him off, and jump on before he hits the ground.

It's quite simple. Hope that helped.

I just built a fence around him, dug a 2x2 hole, then put the saddle on him 1 block away from the whole and done.

Mind you he ran in the opposite direction many times.

Encase a pig with a fence, dig all ground out from below, except for a few squares, mount pig, destroy remaining squares, without killing pig, then patience.
