Minecraft General

Recommended Posts

I still play every now and then. I liked the diamond seekers server, it was nice to get on and play with some other TIFers and stuff.

 

Also I started watching mindcrack a little. I started with Kurtjmac on ultra hardcore, and then started watching some others, like some of pakratt's prank videos, and some of pause.

 

Actually I was accused of griefing once for destroying "nenga"'s house. It was hilarious.

 

Also before it went down for good, since my house was near the church, I tore it down and converted it into a satanist church complete with redstone pentagram and the windows were glass in the shape of an upsidedown cross.

The part about the church made me lol so hard for some reason >.>

 

I'm not really playing currently, but I'm still watching Mindcrack videos whenever I get the opportunity (Zisteau's ones, anyway).

 

Runescape no doubt corrupted my view of video gaming in general to some degree - I'm far more efficiency oriented whenever I'm playing anything at all. That's crossed over into Minecraft extensively, although I still like building really large farms and such even if there's zero reason to do so to begin with. One such example was during my playthrough of Super Hostile: Lethamyr - I wanted slimeballs for a couple pistons so I could make...

 

2x piston doors (12 sticky pistons)

1x melon farm (16 sticky pistons)

1x pumpkin farm (16 sticky pistons)

 

That farm probably took me 5+ hours to make. By the time I was done, I had an ungodly amount of slimeballs. I could've easily stopped before I even had the entire thing dug out, but I can't just leave a project unfinished, because I know it'll never get done otherwise. By the time I finished that map, I had about a double chest full of slimeballs because I kept going back for little bits of xp here and there.

 

Oh, and all of my mining activities are in standard branch mine form (2 blocks between each branch, although 3 blocks would be slightly more efficient).

 

Although, as OCD and extensive as some of my farming and mining activities are, I can't even begin to compare to the... insanity involved in what Zisteau builds. It's just mind boggling how far he goes to build even a "temporary" house.

 

Can't think of anything else to say... other than I should watch more of Kurtjmac's videos. Only really seen him in one season of Ultra Hardcore (the team based one), and that's... pretty much it, I think. Far Lands or Bust interests me, but the sheer number of episodes is a bit discouraging, lol.

 

Oh, and Pause is hilarious. Moreso because he's Canadian like I am >.>

Is the Diamondseeker server still active? Would like to play MC again with like minded people.

No it went down awhile ago. Not exactly sure why it went down though, it was never really explained, or I missed it.

 

The problem is we need to run a more tight whitelist on it, we got griefed a lot. Anyone who applied for whitelisting just got let in.

A combination of inactivity and LowC moving on to The Old Republic.

So What's everybody's minecraft skin now anyway? I know back on diamondseekers a lot of people just used the default skin, and I think I was wearing Faris from FFV, I did for awhile.

 

Though I changed it to Faith from Mirror's Edge.

So i've been in a minecraft mood lately and been playing some, started a new world, discovered the biggest cave system i've ever seen right under where I built my house. I've been exploring it for 3 days now and there's still tons of branches I haven't been down. It includes 4 ravines, an abandoned mineshaft, and stretches to the ocean at one point, while going down to bedrock naturally. I spawned in the middle of a forest and have no idea where the ocean is relative to my house, pretty far away at least. I need to start bringing signs and marking my way back, I have gotten lost in there so many times.

 

Currently i'm lost in there, somewhere near layer 23, out of food, and my pick is nearly broken, so I cant just dig out, which would be a problem anyway because of the food shortage. Though I should make it out fine because the way back from where I am should be well lit and comes out directly in my house. Also killed tons of slimes while I was down there, time to make some sticky pistons so a zombie cant break down my door.

Screenshots would be fun to have, for the sake of nostalgia lol.

 

I'm currently running 2 minecraft servers, one for my friends, with a map we started in the beginning of the beta days (You can clearly see where the old generator ends and the new one starts). The other one is a survival that I started recently, was thinking of posting it on the internet after putting some mods on it to prevent people stealing from other people's stuff and such.

So I found out something new the other day. When you enter the nether, if you look at the biome name under F3, it just says hell. I mean I always called it hell anyway but I didn't know it was officially hell.

Who built the walls? Not a bad set, and they are fairly large.

 

I think I might put my creative world on hold, and get back to building my castle island. Also, I did make progress on the island since I last posted any pictures of it. The castle still needs a proper interior, I scraped the maze idea, though it does have a throne room. I might consider adding a second floor for part of it and building myself another one of my fortresses, because all of my structures either are fortresses, or contain fortresses. Sort of my thing.

Low_C and I worked on the walls. It was Low_C's idea but I helped build it.

 

My big project on the server was I dug straight through the desert outside town until I hit the ocean, so we'd have a channel to the ocean. Also I mapped out the area around town, and I spent my time gathering a majority of the resources for projects. I went through about 15 diamond picks of pure cobblestone, and cut down about half of the local forest. Also I built a fishing platform and was going to build a dock but never really did it. Oh and I guess I built the new storage house. When spawn protection was enacted on the server a little after it was started, non-op couldn't access the building materials, so we had to move it.

As cool as it would be to work in a server, I don't think I could put up with the gathering of materials, not for my largest scale projects (like that island). I also consume a lot of redstone for some of my stuff, and a mine doesn't pull enough of it out. For my smaller scale projects it can be a blast, but not when I am in the many thousands of specific materials.

 

Right now I am building my mansion, which will fill up a nice portion of the village, and then I can slap some more huts up, and figure out how to make a farm and get that going too. After that I need to make the harbour, which will require some reworking a section of wall to accommodate a gate. Also having an idea for a water canal under the island, and add a secret harbour for the castle which currently lacks a basement. That could be neat if I have the patience to craft it. Also might have to wall up some of the caverns that are under the island, I think one of them will be in the way.

Yeah the greifers only greifed town and my stack of diamond picks wernt in town so I still had them. Low gave me a stack since I mined most of the cobblestone for the local projects.

 

Also how could I forget about the ground. I dug up every block of dirt and replaced it with cobblestone. And then I had the biggest farm in town. Claiming an entire unused section of town for a half wheat half sugercane farm, by the library.

How did you guys deal with sharing 'possessions'? Diamond stacks/tools/weapons, for example.

 

My friend takes the attitude that because it's "his" world he can basically raid everyone else's house, generally help himself to whatever he wants and then burn our houses down with lava for teh lulz. Understandably, this has not been conducive to developing local projects, and I'm trying to come up with an alternative way of doing things...

We had our own personal chests insides our houses, and then we had a community house in town where we'd put anything that we were ok with people taking. Stone, dirt, wood, coal, etc. Diamonds didn't usually show up in there since most people just looked for enough diamonds for themselves.

There was also a mod where you could lock chests, pretty sure that got a lot of use.
