Yeh, any ideas on how I can add more dirt and sand? Cobble stone/stone you can make with water and lava. and such should I just add sand and dirt to the chest?
I say in the future, make multiple islands, just in your sight, with chests hidden in them, or just something nice that you take out of the starting chest. Like one island can have a chest with 15 dirt in it, then another can have a bit of water in it with some sugarcane on the island. (take that out of the chest)
I really do love this amazing challenge. I've got a slow start though, I've built a prototype generator (which is mainly dirt and wood and it's really not good. I got a bit of cobble out of it but then it went haywire and part of it caught fire, and I had to take out the lava. I'm going to replace it with the cobble I've got, then put the lava back in. I've also got really lucky and grown two big trees, and I have never appreciated big trees before.
Amazingly fun, great challenge. Hard- not impossible.
But I have a suggestion. I had to copy and paste the folder a few times so I have backups for when something goes screwy. My main problem is that a few times, actually, I destroyed the tree and there were no saplings.
I think you should put a sapling in the chest in later versions. You can obviously cope without it but I really think it would help speed up the start, or prevent people from getting stuck because they have no saplings.
