Alright, I'll try it out. Thanks!
I need I'll need more doors though.
If you approach single player with a multiplayer mentality, of course you will have no fun.
The charm of single player is to survive a wild world on your own. Your fortifications can and will keep away hostile mobs, and you can create safe havens for you, your companion, your livestock.
You are alone in exploring an infinite world, in finding nether fortresses and strongholds, and beating the Ender Dragon. You can work hard to shape your surroundings to your liking, or even take into account some roleplaying by securing a village and pretending you are the mayor.
You can do just about anything, and save your progress on an external memory too, so if your buildings will never be seen by others (don't see the problem in this to be honest), you can always load them up and admire them.
I believe that zombie sieges require 20 villagers and 10 doors.
And siege zombies can spawn in transparent or nonsolid blocks such as half-slabs as long as there is a solid block underneath.
(If you had half-slabs with a 2 block airspace underneath then the zombies would spawn in the cellar instead.)
By monsters, do you mean the "usual" ones? Then yes, they will spawn if there's enough darkness and available blocks.
If you mean zombie sieges (happening if you have 10 or more villagers), those will happen too, but not if:
-The floor of the dome is Bedrock
-The floor of the dome is made of transparent or half blocks.
When I first started playing I thought about doing it on creative, but I quickly realise that an empty world provided no challenge, danger, and was also a bit creepy.
So I'm playing on medium and fortifying all my outposts. I don't like to fight, but I like to think that I'm safe while out there it's darkness and monsters. I also started an hardcore world. You just gotta give it a try.
I am surrounded by deserts and plains. Trying to escape it through a Nether rail track.
I never found jungles on my main world too, but I spawned in one on an alternate world. I found it pretty annoying.
1, sometimes zero. I don't like building in survival mode, I think it's really monotonous. In my biggest world, my base is a cave, inside is just a crafting bench, three chests, four furnaces and a small wheat farm, laziest house ever. I made it in like 2 minutes. I at least sheared some leaves and vines, also added a staircase inside make it look better, it's in a jungle biome. Much later in the world, I added a chicken farm.
I like playing nomad style a lot too. Just never make a base or stop anywhere. Just keep walking around and killing all of the animals you find for food.
My first portal was facing a giant lava lake on one side, and on the other there was a 2-blocks Netherrack corridor leading to the mainland. Needless to say, today that same place is a pigmen-spawning proof fortress of Cobblestone.
Always play safe when it comes to the nether.
Assuming you are playing on normal, the minimum requisites are:
-a stack of Cobblestone (for when you spawn away from the main body of the End)
-5 Ender Pearls (If he knocks you off the platform)
-a Water Bucket (safe fall)
-Iron Armor (at least Protection I on every piece)
-Bow (with at least Power I) with 4 stacks of arrows (OR Infinity Bow)
Shoot at the crystals carefully until you have cleared a big enough area where the Dragon cannot recover health. You don't need to shoot down ALL crystals; I still have some up, and I killed it months ago. When there are no more crystals in sight, hit it with leftover arrows and melee attacks.
I agree a lot with what LordPebbleton said but in my case i would call bases things such as a mining base where u have a simple little chest with food and tools in it i have a big base surrounding my nether portal in the nether so i can be proctected whenever i go in and some brewing stands so i can make fire resistance potions and strength
