Simple as the title. If anybody has a base in the end, or has dabbled in prolonged survival on either the main island or on the outer end islands, your stories, failures, tips, and photos are greatly requested. Please talk about it below, as its a future goal of mine to make a sustainable base in the end. Thanks!
On one of my old servers, a friend of mine took over the central Ender Island and turned it into quite an impressive base. Around the central Exit Fountain, she built a large tower as a central structure, and off to one side she had an iron grinder with villagers. She lit up every surface so no Endermen could spawn. Off to another side was a long bridge to an Enderman XP grinder, which was the only place Endermen could spawn. All the obsidian towers were torn down and removed, and we let her go into creative mode long enough to remove the bedrock blocks that had been atop each obsidian tower holding the Ender Crystal.
This was before the Enderdragon could be respawned, and I'm a bit sad she can't do that sort of base again.
On the other hand, the new mechanics do mean there are now outer islands, and I myself once leveled off a large outer island and a couple closely conneted islands into a large canvas for making pixel art lined up with the grid for Maps so I could get art I could hang on a wall with an item frame. I eventually had enough space for 12 minimum-sized maps, although I only ever actually made pixel art out of one of them.
