I made a new world, gonna stick with this one for a good while. Found a good little spot in a plains or extreme hills (I think plains) biome to settle for now until I found a better spot. Haven't built my house yet, but have been exploring this nice cave system and have got a good amount of basic resources so far.
Started a new survival world when 1.2 came out. I haven't really been able to focus on one thing.
I started building a nice fancy "house". With a large basement level. This is the skeleton of the structure, the main level is the white platform in the middle.
Then I realized I was low on food and I needed more wool for my construction project, so I decided to build a "barn." But I wanted it to be as nice as my "house", so the scale is large. The roof as you see it will eventually be covered in grass and farmland with a glass ceiling over top.
Also, the new light coloured wood from birch trees is awesome.
Both projects will probably not be finished for a while ... and now I need to go lumberjacking, mining and sand quarrying before I continue building.
Looks great so far, would love to see what it looks like when its finished.
Got lost in a massive cave system yesterday. I found 2.5 stacks of iron ore, 20 gold ore, 8 diamonds, and had to punch my way through 10 or so layers to save myself after my pick broke while panic-digging. Scariest experience on MC I've ever had.
So, I made an enchantment table, finished my house, expanded the NPC village I live by, and made an Iron Golem to protect my NPC buddies.
My seed is "dirt", no quotes. Best seed I have found so far. Spawn near a small NPC village in a forest/grassland, surrounded by a river system, 3 arctic biomes, 2 jungles, 1 swamp, 1 desert, all within a 1064x1064 block (i.e. a map starting at the NPC village shows all of these biomes).
