It's that second sapling has been planted, firmly into the dirt; with warm amber light glow from a lava fountain, keeping it a lit. Praying for a sprung of life into the little sapling. Sitting in my dark corner with stars in full twinkling display, waiting.
Thinking to myself about how much I blamed myself not able to catch that third sapling from the second tree, as it plunged down into the deep unknown void. Only if I could've invested my dirt around on the final layer. Even if I can't dig them back up without losing dirt down below. I cringed at the idea. Cuddling myself closer as if I was getting cold. Tempered by my anger, brooding with my eyes locked onto the last and only sapling.
Wind blew and behold the storm it came, it was snowing.
To my amazement, haven't felt surprised for such a while. Doubtfully believe snow would ever come at all, but it has! Blanket of snow was forming on my surface, stood up excited, realizing I could finally have protective friend, a snowman! Tilting my blocky head up toward the sky, soaking myself in such a beautiful view of snowing wind. I closed my eyes, just to remember when was the last time I ever had snow. (Last time was back in 1.3 update, before it was removed.)
Opened my eyes and turns around to see if my tree has finally come to life. Then the worst fear came, snow killed the last and the only sapling tree I had.
"No!" I screamed.
With a quick dash into a blanket of snow, dug my hands in, digging. Trying to find that last sapling. Panicking with eyes wide open, breaking my blocky finger nails as I've dug too deep into this hopeless pile of snow and dirt.
"No! This can't be happening!" Starting to blame myself even more, how couldn't I not realize how much snow could kill such a little tiny weak sapling. Knew better than that, but foolishly amazed myself with blistering freezing cold snow flakes dancing in the wind. Distracted I was and now enraging myself in a pool of emotional panic. Kicking snow out of anger... slumbered myself exhausted into that dark corner with stars in full twinkling display, thinking. On day 4.
The sun came... have not moved since then. Had already thought of everything I need to do to survive. I was in and out of short denials. Wishing to believe I could make do without the tree. No... I knew I was doomed, but not like this.
Could try reserving all the woods I've gathered from the last two trees. Turn them into charcoal for light... sticks for tools. I would, however, meet my dead-end as I'd run out of woods. Food, I need food. Didn't realize I was starting to get really hungry. Could easily plant the melons and mushrooms, but I was too depressed to carry on. It has become too hard to ignore the fact that I failed to keep my wood supply in check.
Knew I was gonna get really hungry... then the pain would come afterward. Slowly draining my life. Hardly see the point to keep building with everything except supply of sapling. Then all those hard work would become useless because I don't have enough wood to build myself more tools, even if that take few days before I ran out of woods. Can't shake the fact that I already lost at the very moment when snow came.
My platform is turning all white, covered in snow. Slowly becoming bore to stare at my hopeless would-have-been-successful platform. My eyes wanders further than the edge of my platform. Watching the snow falling pass him and down further to the deep dark void. Laid down on my chest, crawls toward the edge, peering my head over and looking straight down into that void.
"What is down there?" I pondered.
Slowly stood back up on my foot, teething myself right to the edge. With a last sigh, I plundered myself down to see with my arms wide open. Suddenly was free of weight and worry. Falling down along with the snow, then I was faster than snow, that now they fall on my face instead. As I've already sighed before my fall... couldn't help but to have sigh once more with pure amazing bliss.
Hey, Can anyone here help me install this as im having a bit of trouble, is there a page with step by step instructions or something?? Help would be appreciated :smile.gif: Thanks
Ok, download the file and extract it. If your on PC, open the extracted folder, open up your appdata (hit start+r for run, type %appdata%) go into minecraft, saves and place the folder inside the extracted folder that says SkyBlock1.1 (so if you extracted the zip in your desktop the folder should be C:\Users\'username'\Desktop\SkyBlock1.1 and put the folder Skyblock1.1/1.0 in your saves folder in your minecraft appdata) .
I say, it actually is possible to make a nether portal. Infinite water pool gives you infinite water. You make moulds, pour water in and lava on top where you want the obsidian.
Apart from the flint and steel, which is acheived by putting a wooden pressure plate or crafting bench or chest ect next to the portal, and putting lava next to it. The lava will catch fire next to the pressure plate and Voila! You have a nether portal. The practicallity of this is questionable, because you cannot place water in the nether you can not get out apart from your current portal. But it is a possibility to get there. I have done it.
EDIT: Inversify what is in this video so that water is in the trench and you are putting lava on top.
This is an excellent map, one of the best I've ever played. But I found that I got the most fun out of it playing co-op. I'm making an entire series of us playing through it on YouTube at 2Guys1Server. Here's the first episode:
There are a lot more to come, so subscribe if you want to see more of this beautiful map in action!
