Having my buddy Anthony do some RMM’s and seeing all that the Minecraft updates had to offer, I wanted to play more Minecraft as well. So there are only three things I really wanted to do in Minecraft and finishing my giant hole/floating fortress thing isn’t happening since I can’t get onto that server. That leaves me with two things: have fun in an amplified map or creating a village so large that it lags me! The amplified map is still rather daunting so for now I think I’ll tackle the giant village.
So it begins…
I choose to have large biomes this go around and to just straight play where I landed… so obviously they’d put me in the middle of a desert surrounded by nothing that could be used as tools or food.
Oddly enough, there was a strip of one of the new biomes in the middle of the desert that had a huge tree! Fantastic news for me since it gave me food and tools and also pointed me towards a giant hole.
I did a bit of mining in here, but with out many torches and or weapons not made of wood, it kind of sucked and I almost died. Luckily I didn’t… unfortunately I found a nice village nearby and no longer remember where this hole is. Stupid hole in the ground…
These are some of my new village buddies. They are a very talkative bunch… but they don’t improve their options after a few trades. I guess I don’t know how it works, but I’ve got a few emeralds now that I can… put in a box… what do you do with them anyway?
The first night came and there was much screaming and running around (mostly by myself). I took me a while to find and patch all the wholes in my defenses and figure out where all the dark places were that I didn’t apparently have light coverage. That was annoying, but I’ve got it now.
Most of the village was spared from the nighttime horrors, but a few creepers did make it in and redecorated two locations.
Overall the damage wasn’t too bad. I just need more duct tape and elbow grease and this will be patched in a jiffy!
With the fortifications set and all the areas well lit, the only thing left to do is expand and have the villagers do… uh… their thing.
Bad guy group huddles are very common around the outskirts of the town. I’m fairly sure their after my vegetables since that’s what zombies and skelies eat.
So I’m on my way to what a friend of mine is predicting as server lag. I think my compy can handle it. Either way I need more materials so I’ll have to figure out how I want to go about retrieving them. I want to maintain the aesthetics of the desert village mostly. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
