You can make a nether wart farm in the nether but those cause you to have to spend large amounts of time in the nether as the wart will not grow anywhere else. (Not even on your face ) I reccomend one of these farms because It allows you to be able to make lots of potions! On my current survival, I have a house and in that house is an entrance to a branch mine which has a bunch of rooms with different uttilities before the mine actually started. I have a kitchen which is where I cook and store all of my food. A crafting room for crafting and smelting ores. A farm. A portal room. An enchanting room. A brewing room. I also have a room with two pink sheep that I FOUND not dyed. There is a whole herd in a tundra biome near my house! I also had the tornado mod for a while and that ripped a little trench you could call it that exposed a freakin dungeon!!! I also have a bedroom with a jukebox. I also made a room for wool and wool dye storage. I decided to do some exploring and found that I was living on a HUGE island!. I found a NPC village and a ravine! My nightly mob battles have brought me spoils of war inculding music disk "blocks" and "cat", and iron sword, an iron shovel and other drops. I am currently working on finishing my enchanting room. In the nether I have made a base that surrounds my portal back to the overworld and a nether wart farm. Just let me know if you want me to put a link so you can download the save!
I confess to not having gone back and read the posts since I last posted in this thread, but I'll throw a new idea on the pile that really made my day today.
A fully automatic streetlamp electrical grid complete with daylight detector building. I've sat and watched my 4 main roads all day today turn on and off on their own its gorgeous to see. My only hiccup is the time it takes for the grass block to die off and turn the lights on at night is quite random in the detect building.
I really like this (and you can tell because it's my banner now).
This will be helpful when I take a break from my "Build Portfolio" (also my old sig) and get back to real-survival. I have always wanted a thread like this, and you have finally made one. Yay!
Mushrooms! Yay! Mushrooms are incredibly useful in Minecraft. Bonemeal a mushroom to turn it into a Giant Mushroom, perfect for making a cute little house out of. Or, bonemeal mushrooms, and then break the mushroom blocks to harvest regular mushrooms! Make some bowls out of wood in your crafting bench, and then craft mushroom stew on the fly (it doesn't require a crafting bench). Open the spoiler for a photo of a giant mushroom!"
Yes, it does require a crafting bench.
Saw one of your earlier posts on page 2, and I tested it, and it works!
Some interesting ideas here. I usually end up building a home that resembles a dungeon from the Super Hostile maps though. I once built a large underground cave with leaves hanging from the roof, vines dripping down the sides, and lit by jack-o-lanterns. It was based off of the Grove of the Dark Willows from the Spellbound Caves.
The point here, is that while you can base your buildings on LP'ers worlds, another good idea is to look at some custom maps, and make a base that resembles your favorite part of said map.
Nice job! You inspired me to begin construction on my own base, and I can't wait to see how it turns out! Thanks for making this thread.

Christianity in a nutshell: We have all sinned, so we deserve eternity in hell. But God (God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit) loved us so much he sent His Son to die for us, to take the punishment meant for us. All we need to do is accept it, and we have heaven headed our way.
Nice one man! From the amount of posts this thread has, I can tell it's not enough. You spent HOURS writing this (I wrote a seed spotlight thread and that took me 1/2 and hour and it only had 4 pictures!). So congrats for completing this (Or from what I can tell, it looks completed)!
So well done, And I hope I stumble across another great thread by you!
