- Constructed a smallish cattle ranch at what was the terminus of my South Road. An ongoing WIP.
- Modified a river-spanning bridge just south of the new cattle ranch. An ongoing WIP.
- Went on an lengthy exploratory expedition, traveling far from home. Discovered my first desert temple. Two real-life days later I found another. Thanks to YouTube videos I knew to avoid the traps. (They were fairly obvious. I like to think I'd have spotted them on my own.)
- Found an Extreme Hills biome not generated an older version of the game. Bored a stairwell down to diamond level. Mined my first emeralds. Unearthed a decent amount of diamonds too. Encountered my first silverfish.
What have you done recently?

What a waste of diamonds.

I've also started building more portals to link various areas I've found in the overworld. So much easier to get to the closest NPC village now. Also built a portal shortcut to a second abandoned mineshaft I found weeks ago. I happened to write down the F3 coordinates, so built a portal to get there.

I also demolished the part of my old base that housed the enchantment table and potion brewing area, and moved everything into one of the 20x16x5 spaces. On the opposite side of that area I put 3 Coke Ovens and 2 Blast Furnaces (both Railcraft structures). I was kind of concerned at first that the lava generated in the latter when smelting iron into steel would set the wooden floor of my house above it on fire, but it did not.
Into the second area I put all my chests, IC2 machines, MFE and Geothermal Generator, my 17/5 solar flower and the rest of my EE2 setup. The machines are along one wall, the chests (all from the Iron Chests mod, most are gold, 2 diamond) along the back wall, and on the opposite wall from the IC2 machines I put the EE2 structures.
Now that the old base is empty, I need to finish working on the house. The interior needs walls and the second and third floors (the back center portion is the only 3rd floor area) need windows. I still have my bed in the old base on the same level as my minecart tracks, so it will need to be moved. I plan to either leave the tracks in place as they are, or run some elevator tracks down to ground level.
I will eventually upgrade the entire rail line between the bases to high speed; that will require a lot of gold, blaze powder, and smelting iron ingots into steel in the blast furnaces

Now threre are chickens everywhere...

Slowly, but surely, Diamond's Castle nears completion.

The other half will contain automatic pumpkin and reed farm. Less efficient though. Only for 14 pumpkins and 16 reeds.
I am also going to build this at the end of my transporting channel:
Finished the farms. Auto-harvesting using buttons on the control panel. All the loot waitsfor me already before me going two floors down.
