Imagine still running your world after like three decades, you'd have to store the file on an external SSD at that point, transferring it from computer to computer as you upgrade.

I bought my copy of Minecraft on 3rd April 2011 according to Mojang's website, however that was after contemplating getting the game for a few months after watching my bestfriend put so many hours into it. I was obsessed with FPS shooters at the time and had never really played any games on PC, other than your basic online Flash games lol

Right, I have valid excuses for not posting recently. I haven't dropped off I promise!
I've had a bit to do with getting ready for university, working a fair bit to earn some money and just enjoy some of the other things there are in life. I hope to be posting again soon, maybe I'll get a few hours of play time in tonight and do an update this evening.

An SSN has a legal market value of 0 (since it is illegal to sell), an equivalent market value of 0 (since there is no legal equivalent to selling an SSN), but a real market value of quite a bit. A Minecraft account has a legal market value of 0, an equivalent market value of 26.95 USD, and a real market value of however much people will pay for it. For that "8" account it is thousands, for an account with a Minecon cape it might be hundreds, and for a simple burner account it might be a couple bucks.
This isn't a discussion about the legality (again, for the record: you cannot sell Minecraft accounts legally and attempting to do so here will result in a warning and possibly a post suspension, as will trying to sell most other items here), it is a discussion of economics.
This. I couldn't figure out why previous commenters were saying that MC accounts have no value, and someone who pays over the odds is stupid.
Diamonds and a whole range of products IRL have a restricted supply to inflate the price and demand, but they won't call people who buy diamond jewellery stupid (most of the time lol)

I ran tests on this myself, to get a more accurate numbers. I had no means to record, but I have gathered the data over 100 separate tests. Even tested other block spacing: 1 block, 4 block, and even 5 block. All in the name of science. 100 tests for each.
3 block spacing versus 2 block spacing:
There is a 38% increase in the amount of work to do 2 block spacing. Over 100 tests, I can confirm that it is accurate.
You gain only an average of 5% in material gain. The amount of effort, and the amount gained back, is not worth the extra 38% increase in work. That increase, with minimal return, actually decreases the efficiency, by a large margin, by comparison.
3 block spacing versus 4 block spacing:
You are doing roughly 23% more work with the 3 block spacing, than the 4 block spacing. A material gain increase of 33% actually makes it worth the extra work. Not a surprise.3 block spacing versus 5 block spacing:
with 3 block spacing you have an increase of 33% work load by comparison. However, an increase of 53% in material gain. Not a surprise.
3 block spacing versus 1 block spacing:
To do 1 block spacing, you increase your work by 50%. You only have a material gain of 6%. Making 1 block spacing less efficient than 2 block spacing. No surprise there.
Over all, the most efficient branch mining style, is to leave 3 blocks between each tunnel.
I even tested 2 block height, and 3 block height as well. You have a 5% increase in material gain, and roughly a 10% increase in work. So I say that it is worth it personally.
3 blocks between each tunnel, with 3 blocks in height, after multiple tests, I have found to be the most efficient method for mining minerals.

I think you should be able to use coords. They're in the game and accessible for a reason
If you don't use them, definitely learn to use an ingame compass, though that's quite a bit harder

I like how your design smoothes the edges a bit more. Since I posted the above prototype, I moved the actual logo blocks one further inwards, giving the logo a bit more depth and looking like it was bit into the wall. I'll give this a go though for sure
Also, I was just watching Etho's world tour of his survival world, and ONLY JUST LEARNT that you can smelt netherrack to get nether bricks, then use them to create nether brick blocks etc... After all these years it never occured to me lol

Awesome base. I love doing similar builds to what you have done and incorporating my house into the landscape, especially near water.
Also, what shader pack are you using? I'll be checking back on this thread often if you keep it up

Ghasts always get me. I remember countless times playing on Multiplayer Survival servers, being in the Nether with a few of my friends, hearing one of those cries and being chilled to the skin. I think it's their screams and sudden attacks.
Though Witches are a pain in the butt. I suck at killing those things, so I just wait for them to despawn. Stupid Witches and their warty noses.
Oh, and baby Zombies. Those. Baby. Zombies.
I hate baby Zombies.
To kill witches, 3 arrows with a Power I bow does the trick for me

Mini update to try and get the ball rolling on this diary, that way I'll post more and work more on my world.
I figured that the large empty space below my farm area (in front of my base) could be filled in with dirt and terraformed to fit in a bit better, rather than have a huge overhang of dirt being supported by nothing. I then wanted to do some pixel art on the dirt wall I was going to build. This changed when I realised I was going to do an Apple logo, since I'm and Apple fanboy and used to work at an Apple Store, so now I have the front of an Apple store built outside my house and ready to be furnished and completed on the inside!
I guess it saves me from the long walk to get a new iPhone charger when my current one turns into a turtleneck
Edit (and note to self): I need to fix the stem on the top of the Apple logo and bring it down and cross one, I forgot to remove the top andesite block.

Really, really cool idea and I can't believe how quickly you blitzed through it lol

It would appear to me that, having read reviews and seen videos, that the site is legit.
However, if this is really the case, all you can do is go to https://help.mojang.com/customer/en/portal/articles/361483-my-account-was-stolen and attempt to recover your account.

Here's hoping! The only place I've found slimes so far is in a swamp biome quite a trek from my base. My quarry is 19x19 so far, so it could be across up to 4 chunks. I'll probably expand it outwards until I do find slimes tbh, though I need to look up how best to spawn them in and trap them etc
