As I read almost all posts, my style of playing were'nt really "mined out".
Nice guide btw! Maybe not for me, but nice ideas from everyone.
I play on hardcore, on my home dedicated server, so I always have the opportunity to welcome friends. Not too frequently though, we are all 40+, so we have other things to do, unlike 20+ yrs ago, when we played Quake1 60+ hours on LAN...
When I get bored and alone, having everything mending/upgraded and almost infinite everything else, I move to inventory. 95% of the time I'm in The End, flying, robbing cities. With an ender chest full of shulker boxes, and a few in inventory for things "almost handy", I hunt for more mending stuff for my friends. Would be good to have stacked paper instead of the stupid no-pointer map, but almost everything else fits to the inventory - 40 shulker boxes * 27 = 1080 storage (~64k stackable)? Enchanter, a 2x2 pyramid, everything can be taken with you. Wings come frequently, I can make them unbraking... So the only thing I have to worry about is to not fall off! The dedicated server helps with it: if you get a lag in level generation, you loose your airspeed, an that eats your fuel
