Ever since Notch added in animal breeding, I've been wanting to build a barn that's both functional and fun looking. This is the result. It's heavily inspired by a barn at a State Park near me. They had a petting zoo/farm on the premises that looked a lot like this, but with darker planks. Shortly off in the distance behind it was a horse pen as well, but Minecraft Doesn't have any horses without modding.
There is more than just the barn on this map by now. But I have a downloadable version available with elements of adventure included. Send pics, let me know if you find all the enchanted items (there are six total), etc. Have fun with it. Heck, blow stuff up, and post the results. :wink.gif: http://www.mediafire.com/?sr447xsa7o908qq
Distant view of the animal pen side.
And from the other side.
Closer to the pens.
And a nighttime shot of the back area.
Here's a couple interior shots. I haven't completely furnished it just yet.
I switched to 11w50a a while back. And that area is right at the intersection of a few biomes. And with the patch update, the taiga biome has snow again. And also, that villager actually found his way inside the barn. So I'm counting him as a farm-hand now.
I will give hints as requests accumulate for them. I'm already pretty sure the enchanted diamond sword will be tougher to find than I intended.
