Been playing in an SSP world for awhile, was originally just a nomad;
but I found this beautiful little spot and decided I had to settle down.
(Also, it was becoming unmanageable how many pack animals I needed to move my stuff around...)
So I started working on a settlement in a little glen near the coast; so far I've just got a simple lookout built,
but I'm planning on adding farms and farmhouses for the
Villagers workers I'll be abducting hiring,
as well as stables for my horses and a barn and pens for my livestock. After that, I'll have to see.
This is the lookout post at the top of the cliff looking from the west with the glen beneath it.
There's a hidden redstone door at the base of the cliff leading to the top.
This is the view from the east on the other side of the cliff; you can just see the ocean on the right of the pic.
Close up view.
