I'm a week in to minecraft and love it. But I'm stuck after trying to build an automatic chicken farm.
I did the glass structure above stone method with a hopper and chest. It was ugly so I decided to dismantle it.
Now I've got water flooding everywhere - trying to knock down every block (and all the 27 million I added in an effort to do so) but I keep drowning or having to come out, get swept away, battle my way back ..... you get the picture. I've been at it for hours now and am totally disheartened - thinking of starting a new world (arrrrgggghhh all that terra forming I did gone to nothing).
I've tried placing torches, doors and signs - didn't work
Is there a solution? I just wanna get rid of the blasted water
I tried capping it off by building a taller structure around it and messed up royally - must have left gaps. I've a solid mass of flowing water about 16x16x16. I've spent an entire day making it worse lol.
I think I'll cut my losses, learn from the experiences of world 1 (like don't kill chickens close to home as it takes a whole game day to find some to oh so slowly lure back to base ..... and many other equally dim, should have been obvious, mistakes.
