So, I decided to start a Minecraft to-do list-- a collection of goals both mundane and challenging that I hope will guide both you and me through hours of play time.
Suggestions welcome! I'd love to be able to add to my list.
(Nothing outrageous like 'collect 64 diamond blocks', please. These should be realistic goals that a normal player can reach through enjoying minecraft, not through laboring away tediously collecting cobble or what have you.)
-Find coal/ make charcoal
-Collect 16 stone and 16 logs
-Make a stone pick
-Make a stone sword
-Make a shelter with a door, a crafting box, a furnace, a chest, a bed (if possible), and at least 2 windows.
-Make an iron sword
-Make an iron pick
-Make a bow
-Explore a cave and light it up
-Slay a creeper
-Start a wheat farm and surround it with a fence (or put it in a lighted cave).
