After my computer deleted my old world, (rip) I decided to start a new world. I've wanted to start a survival diary for a while, and this looked like the perfect time for it.
I use Minecraft Windows 10 Edition. I know this is the Java section, but there isn't really an area for survival diaries in the Windows 10/PE section. I apologize if I seem like a noob because of this. I don't have a lot of the features Java edition has.
I started this world as everyone does. Just all the default settings, but I picked my own seed. It promised to be an interesting one in a savannah biome. I love the savannah biome especially because we get lamas there. As the landscape started loading, I was super excited, as everyone is when they start a new world. I was so excited that I immediately started punching down trees before I remembered to take a screenshot.
This sheep was just wandering around the area as I spawned and punched my tree. But beyond the sheep there were plenty of acacia trees and a mountain in the distance. I wanted to run off immediately and explore the mountains, but the setting sun reminded me to build a house and get myself situated. I slaughtered three sheep and made myself a bed to put in my starter shack.
The starter shack looks really ugly, but luckily it is just a starter shack to protect me from monsters. Just before night fell, I ran off to a nearby mountain and mined some cobble to make a furnace and some better tools.
I cooked up some charcoal to make torches, and I am set for the night. As soon as night fell, I slept the night away. I punched down some grass and started a mini wheat farm. While waiting for my wheat to grow, I finally go exploring a little bit.
This area looks amazing. The mountains are rather broken and filled with floating islands. Much of the dirt is coarse dirt around here, which gives the whole are a very rugged feeling. I am excited to start building on these mountains and seeing what I can do with this! I haven't settled on a build style for this area yet, so I need to do that soon.
My goals for the next few days:
use the wheat farm to make a mini cow farm
Explore more of the area around the starter shack
Find a lama
Make some leather armor
go strip mining
Build a starter house and destroy the starter shack.
What type of build style would fit here? Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Starting over seems like such a daunting task. Sorry you lost your world. I've had a few scares. I couldn't imagine starting over after all the work I have done! Good luck out there in survival land!
Since my absolute piece of crap computer crashed and deleted that world (in which I had a full set of diamond mending armor and tools) I have started exporting my world and my sister's world. I have a monster of a flash drive and am keeping the worlds on there. I update them occasionally. It's just safer this way.
Definitely so. I've experienced world corruption before, too, but thankfully I had backups available to use such that my data was not permanently lost. Keep backing it up with each play session, and you'll certainly minimize the chances of complete destruction.

LP series? Not my style! Video series? Closer, but not quite. Survival journal, maybe? That's better. Now in Season 3 of the Legends of Quintropolis Journal (<< click to view)!! World download and more can be found there.
It's been a while since my first post, so I thought I would give an update.
I have done a lot of resource gathering over the past few days. This helped me to achieve some of my goals but not all of them.
Goal: use the wheat farm to make a mini cow farm.
I used my wheat to lure two cows into a small hole. These cows were the start of my cow farm. I used a bucket of water to make it easier to breed them. I really ought to find a better farm design but this works for now. I also made a chicken farm with a similar design.
Goals: Explore more of the area around the starter shack
Hello! Nice to see you!
I went running around and found a lama! I ran around the area and found a pool of lava, a few forests,
this friend who wanted to give me a hug before bed, a large river biome, and a desert, in which I found
a desert village! I went to raid it, but found that this happens to be the rare village that spawns with beetroot instead of carrots and potatoes. I spent a few minutes fencing it in with stone walls and lighting up the place. I want to keep this village intact and kidnap villagers for a breeder, automatic farms, or iron farm. It will be so much easier than curing zombie villagers... maybe.
Make some leather armor, go strip mining
I was waiting for my cow farm to get a little fuller before I tried to get leather armor, so I went strip mining to pass the time.
I set up a little base under the ground at y 11 to store my stuff. Later I added a bed and a few furnaces. As I started strip mining, what was the first ore I found?
Gold!! Of course I didn't have any iron at the time. I mined around it and found a boatload of iron. Soon I had a great amount in furnaces. I decided to skip the leather armor and go straight to iron.
After strip mining for just a little while, I found
Diamonds! Between this and a second vein of diamonds I got 9 diamonds. I haven't done anything with them yet.
Now that I have all these resources, I needed to get my house built up. I made a template in creative mode that I really liked and got started.
This is all I have so far. There will be lots of windows, and points of interest in this build, but I need more resources for them.
My goals for the near future:
Finish starter home
make enchanting room
visit the nether
Any advice the the next steps? I really need to find some pumpkins, but there aren't any around.
Things have been going slowly since last time I posted. For one, I started working IRL, so I have less time during the day to work on my builds. Secondly, I had a problem in that my computer crashed and deleted my world again. I lost a little progress. Luckily, I've begun backing up my world on a flash drive, so I don't lose too much. This has started being a common occurrence for me. 1.13.1 is not friendly to my OS. I doubt 1.6 will be any better. Once when my computer crashed, it reset my screenshot buttons, so I didn't get any screenshots the past two weeks.
Anyway, it's been a while since an update, so I thought I would give you one and show screenshots later.
I went exploring and found a Tiaga biome and a Jungle biome. Finally, for the first time in all my minecrafting days, I found watermelon! I got lots of new trees and saplings, just no dark oak. I also found a desert temple as well as several desert villages. For some reason, all of the desert villages are spawning as beetroot villages. This is very frustrating, as I haven't been able to get potatoes yet. I did get a carrot from a zombie.
With the diamonds I made a pickax and a sword, as well as an enchanting table. The first enchantment I got was silk touch with unbreaking 3. I finished my house just yesterday and am working on the interior. I am also making some custom trees. We will see what happens next. I want to find a ocean and make an ocean base. I did get several nautilus and two tridents from random drowned. Hopefully I will make a conduit soon!
