    Hello everybody and welcome to Episode 47 of the Let's Play Minecraft with Hocus Pocus series. In today's video we put some more work into bringing the 1.14 wool farm closer to completion. Now that the cell design work is almost finalised, we have committed some time to work on the ceiling and walls of the room, aiming to bring everything in the farm together with a great overall look and feel. We have also placed a few more sheep into their cells and dyed all of them according to their wool colour assignments.

    Hello everybody and welcome to Episode 45 of the Let's Play Minecraft with Hocus Pocus series. Within the last few episodes, we have been working on a sheep/wool farm that is going to be future proof! By 'future proof' we mean that it is going to be compatible with the 1.14 change that allows shears to be used inside of a dispenser. In terms of progress, we used the time in this video to dig out the remainder of the room, install the rest of the sheep holding cells and come up with the beginnings of a design for the cells.


    If you do happen to take a look at the video, it would be great if you dropped a comment letting me know that you came over from the forums. Also, I am always open to suggestions and any type of feedback, so make sure to let me know if you have either of those to offer!

    posted a message on Let's Play Minecraft with Hocus Pocus - Episode 43 - Slime Farm Collection System and More Work on 1.14 Sheep Farm

    Watch Here: https://youtu.be/d8NOVkEqfM0


    Hello everybody and welcome to Episode 43 of the Let's Play Minecraft with Hocus Pocus series. In today's video we continue work on the slime farm that we started in the last episode. Now that the first layer of the farm is complete, we can focus on the automatic collection system, which is what we go ahead and implement today. After completing the collection system and the room surrounding it, we move back to the sheep farm. So far, the sheep farm only contains 4/16 cells but today we bump that number up to 8/16!


    I hope that you enjoyed the video and if you have any questions, suggestions or feedback then be sure to leave a comment and let me know that you came over from the Minecraft Forum.

    This survival world is the centrepiece of my Let's Play series, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdKd9dMusFiGmRAVb0YrxYHoJBcAN2lTb


    Some more information about each of the builds...


    Automatic Wool Farm: This farm is a future-proof build that takes into consideration one of the additions coming to the game in the 1.14 update. The new update allows the use of dispensers to harvest wool and this farm is being constructed in a way that allows this mechanism to work.


    Cactus Farm: The cactus farm was a build that came about due to the fact that we didn't have the resources for the sugarcane farm design that I wanted to put together. It is a basic design that was inspired by Welsknight and uses glass panes to force the cactus to harvest itself. The loot is then collected using water streams and hoppers into a centralised chest.


    Dark Oak Tree Farm: Due to the fact that we are using a great deal of dark oak throughout many of our builds, it was critical that we had a dark oak tree farm to satisfy our needs. The farm is entirely underground and took a LOT of digging to complete. Through the use of tall grass, coarse dirt and other natural blocks, we created some nice looking scenery around the trees to add to the design aspect of the farm.


    Smelting Room: Another build inspired by a Welsknight tutorial, this room has 14 furnaces that run simultaneously through the use of hopper minecarts that supply the furnaces with both fuel and smeltable items.


    Small Storage System: This room was constructed to be a convenient way to store the majority of our useful items. Anything that exceeds the storage limit in this room is sent to the deep storage system, where blocks and items are stored in much higher quantities.


    Deep Storage System: This storage system was inspired by an EthosLab build. I can't tell you exactly what room it is that inspired this build but if you are familiar with his series, then you will probably know. Items are stored in a higher quantity in this room and it allows me to organise any overflow from the small storage system.


    The Redstone Closet: The Redstone Closet is a small build that uses pistons to hide two columns of chests. In these chests we keep all of our redstone equipment, including redstone, redstone blocks, pistons and observers.


    The Ravine Station: This is the very first thing that we built in the ravine base. It allows us to link the ravine base to our strip mine using minecart tracks. The Ravine Station uses redstone and levers to have a 4-track route selection - currently, only one of these routes is in use.


    Sugarcane Farm: This farm was inspired by a Gnembon tutorial. It makes use of flying machines to harvest the sugarcane, which is then collected using hopper minecarts. This build is part of the solution to our villager trading area as we didn't have an adequate supply of paper.


    Villager Breeder/Trading Centre: Here is where we breed all of our villagers and weed out the useful ones. Librarians can be extracted from the farm to a separate room that allows us to trade with them and analyse whether or not they will make it to our eventual trading hall. Useful villagers are sent through the villager canal that drops them safely in to our ravine base.

    No problem! I'm sure that you will find it much easier to locate some sugarcane than villagers, so that is probably your best bet.

    posted a message on What is the best single player survival mod?

    If you are looking for a very deep mod experience then I would suggest that you look into the Feed the Beast modpacks.


    You can download the launcher here: https://www.feed-the-beast.com/.


    This launcher contains a selection of modpacks that add a varying experience to the vanilla game. This ranges from magic to machines. I would suggest that you do some research about these modpacks and choose one that suits the experience that you are after.


    They can be daunting at first but are extremely fun!

    The best advice that I can give you is to try to catch a zombie villager. If you can contain one in a box (make sure it has a roof if it is outside) then you will be able to cure the zombie villager, which will convert it into a regular villager. From this point on, you can breed the two villagers that you have in order to create more.

    posted a message on Let's Play Minecraft with Hocus Pocus - Episode 40: Tunnel Design & Tree Farm Convenient Storage [LINK IN THREAD]

    Video: https://youtu.be/dL-kUZmzEig


    In today's episode we decide that it is time to spruce up the minecart tunnel that runs between the ravine station and our strip mine. After finishing up the tunnel, we get back to work on the dark oak tree farm. There is a little bit of space in the tree farm that will otherwise go to waste so we instead utilise that area to implement a convenient area for storage. This compact storage wall will contain the necessities for the dark oak tree farm, including tools, saplings, bonemeal and the dark oak wood itself.


    Thanks for watching, be sure to leave a comment and let me know that you came over from the forums. I'm always looking for suggestions and feedback relating to the series.

    I believe that the setup that you have is currently the most efficient way. I would suggest that you link the two portals in the nether with either a minecart track or an iceroad and boat setup (if that still works?).

    Today's episode sees us tackle the problem of transporting our useful librarians from our villager breeder down into our ravine base. To achieve this, we constructed an underground canal that moves the villagers into a drop that concludes in a holding cell down in our ravine base.

    In this episode, we work on implementing a design into our strip mining area to reduce the dullness of the current long, blank stone corridor. Following the completion of this design, we head over to our villager trading/breeding area to see if we can identify any more useful librarians.
