I don't think it would be boring to not have commentary if the video content is good and the music isn't horrible, lol.

We'll see :) I'm about 40 to 45% into my current project....and I've been working on it for at least 24 hours [on and off, not all in one go!] - Still got lot's more to do. It's taking time as I'm not just simply digging a tunnel; I'm also making it look "nice" too - and I guarantee that you've never seen a Minecart Tunnel like mine! :P Dying part way through delayed me slightly as I had to re-gather more materials :/ I've also been doing a lot of this recently=

DYzo3.png

 Gathering glowstone - I might not like the Glowstone Texture, but it's one of the ingredients for Redstone lamps = which I do like! I've also been doing a lot of this=

...Putting out fires :/ I hate Ghasts! I hate them so much :(

jtKSP.png

Worlds. Biggest. Lava. Lake? This picture doesn't really do it any justice, it stretches a lot further than this, but a few ghasts appeared and I had to get out of there before they blew up the precarious ledge I was standing on! Anyhoo.. .I'm going to get back to my project. Only two more "stages" to go but they both require me to gather huge ammounts of resources .... Back to the grind stone!

I don't think I've met a single person who actually likes the glowstone texture. Haha. I guess it would come in handy for a natural-looking light source or something, but never for anything I would use. TPs FTW! Haha. 

And that is the second biggest lava ocean I've ever seen. Mustafar's is, of course, bigger. =P Haha.

That picture represents just a small portion of the lava lake.. trust me. It's WAY bigger!

Mustafar's a planet of volcanic activity. Pretty sure it's got your lava ocean beat. =P Haha. But that is the largest lava ocean in Minecraft I've ever seen. And I agree with daydrifter. Haha. 

 

In other news, Minecraft made it on G4's list of top 100 games at #67. (Pokemon Red and Blue beat it out, of course, somewhere in the 50s. =])

67? that's not bad. What was #1 ?
Can't say of I've heard of "Mustafar" - and I'm a total science nerd sometimes! lol .. I'll have to look it up :)

Yeah, #67 isn't bad at all, especially since I wasn't even thinking it was going to make it because of all the really awesome games up in the 90s. Haha. They haven't gotten to #1, yet. I gotta watch the episode this Friday to find out. =)

 

Mustafar's not real. Haha. It's at the end Star Wars: Episode III. Guess you're not a fan? =P Haha.

 

Small Update Time!

 

2012-06-14_115838.png

I love Silk Touch. =) Not having a Fortune pick is a bummer, though. Haha. Just have some diamond ore sitting in my chest wihout it. Maybe one day...

 

2012-06-14_120717.png

Started work on the base of the pier/dock/thing on the frozen lake. It turned night-time, though, so I had to quit for the day (and grind some zombies, haha).

Oh. :/ I'm a huge Star Wars fan :D I just hated. No detested. No. LOATHED the prequels. I went to the cinema and walked out on Episodes I, II and III before they finished I was that disgusted. ((I kept hoping they would get better. they didn't)) That's the first - and literally - last time I've seen those films. On the other hand, the original 1977 Star Wars [or Episode IV - A New Hope if you will] I've seen literally hundreds of times and remains my all time favourite film.

On topic: The Icy dock/pier/thing of Icy Awesomeness is going along well. [wait, Google Chromes Spellchecker recognises the noun "Awesomeness" - which I thought was a made-up word - but it doesn't recognise the adjective "favourite" or the verb "recognise" ; what kind of messed up dictionary does it use? *ahem* sorry] - try enchanting a pick at level 47 - really good for "Fortune III" In my experience :)

Star Wars: Episode III is probably my all-time favorite. Why'd you hate the prequels so much?

Yeah, the pier/dock/thing is coming along. Well the base of it, at least. Haha. And try "favorite" and "recognize," the American spellings. Haha. Google is an American company, after all. Forty-seven! I shall start saving up my levels for that, then. Thank you, sir!

It was awful [Episode III that is] : Awful acting [especially Hayden Christensen - my WARDROBE can act better than him, but they were all bad] - awful script [seriously George Lucas has lost the plot; actually to draw this simile out a little, I don't think he even he even had the plot to begin with] ; Jar Jar Binks - the less said about him, the better. Awful Special effects - yes i thought they were awful; I much prefer Models to CGI, even though you know they're models, they look more "realistic" CGI looks soooo fake. So many plot holes, it would put the entire Swiss Cheese industry out of business!
Um.. anyhoo. I didn't like the prequels give me: A New Hope - or better yet, The Empire Strikes Back - any time.

Well, I completely disagree on all those points, but those are your preferences, so that's cool. Haha.

Oh, welp, I can't help but go off topic and talk about Star Wars...darn you guys!

I think I may be weird for probably liking the music of Star Wars more than the movies themselves, but yeah, I'm a fan of the ORIGINAL Star Wars trilogy, not the new stuff. Sorry Gil!
Though man, I remember being so hyped up about Episode I. I didn't think it was that bad...The soundtrack is amazing! Some of the characters were great. I loved Qui Gon and Darth Maul. And the costume design!!!! Queen Amidala/Padme's makeup and costume alone heavily inspired my own character designs...I even liked the Gungans. Just not um, you know. The really annoying one we get stuck with. The Boss guy was much more enjoyable as a character, in my opinion of course.

Okay I need to stop myself from going on.

ON TOPIC! What I like to do is keep a bed outside with me when I'm working on something and can't be bothered to go all the way back home come nightfall. As long as you go to sleep as soon as the moon comes out, you shouldn't have trouble with monsters spawning. It's almost like being on Peaceful if you get in bed fast enough each night. :P

Glad to see some progress with the dock/pier/thingamajig. The scenery is really quite pretty, it's a lovely little area for the dock. Hurry up and finish, I want to go ice fishing there. (and is that a chicken ice skating?)

I'm sure you'll get a Fortune Pick soon, I got another bane of arthropods II sword yesterday so, hopefully I took away your bad luck. You should enchant another pick, you might get lucky! I would gladly give you my Fortune II (sorry I can't....I can't part with my Fortune III, I'm selfish!). If we were on a server. I do love this project, it's a great concept, but sometimes I wish we could share things. If only there was a way to trade items with other players. Hm, that could be an idea. You could friend other players and send them stuff from one of your worlds, and they could use it in one of theirs, wouldn't that be awesome?

Check out the new snapshot - you can invite LAN friends into your single-player world.
@daydrifter - I always carry a bed in my inventory :)

Actually i know this is "A Minecraft Community Without A Server" .. .but I'd love to be in decent server - especially if it was with you guys :) We could call it "DerpCraft". No, wait "BonkersCraft". No. I've got it! "EccentricCraft" haha! If there's one thing we British excel at - it's Eccentricity :P

No worries. Haha. I don't think I've met a single person that likes the prequels better than the originals. =P I mean, I like them, but I don't know if it's possible to meet myself. Haha. Oh my gosh, the music, yes! I love John Williams so much. May be a little biased due to all the awesome horn stuff he puts in his pieces; just makes it more awesome! Haha. Your own character designs?

I might start carrying a bed in my inventory, actually. Not a bad idea, Zyrandar! I need to grind zombies, anyhow, to get to level 47, though. Haha. So I don't need it right now. 

Hurray for your (daydrifter's) horrible enchanting luck! =D

LAN connections are implemented?? Dude, that makes me soooo very, very happy. 

 

Another update!

The pier/dock/thingy is finally done! Here're some pictures.

2012-06-14_162352.png

This is before I mixed the wood together.

 

2012-06-14_162741.png

And this is after I mixed the wood together. I forgot stairs are only available in one color. I wanted a nice transition. *Nods.

 

2012-06-14_162954.png

I love the sunset colors. =]

 

2012-06-14_163606.png

I finally go to the Nether! =)

 

2012-06-14_164514.png

And make it out alive without seeing a single Ghast. Got some glowstone dust, as well. =) Going to come in handy when I start fancy-ing up the pier/dock/thing. 

 

2012-06-14_165053.png

And here we have a random pumpkin. I think an Enderman must have misplaced it or something. Haha.

And here's the finished pier/dock/thing complete with glowstone. =) Now all it needs is houses.

2012-06-14_165648.png

I'm a senior member? I feel old...

Yay, the dock is finished! I like that you gradually blend the wood colors. Smart move. It looks great, Now I can go ice fishing! Looking forward to the houses now. I think ice is going to be able to be picked up with Silk Touch in 1.3. Any plans with ice for the area?

The brass in John Williams' music is pretty epic! And you can always tell his music apart from others. He's got his own style going on. :)
As for the character thing...I like to invent characters, usually starting with sketches. It's fun to play around with different colors and hair styles and what not. A lot of times there's no real story, just pictures. Maybe I'll share some drawings in the off topic section sometime. :P Have had a project in my head for some time involving Minecraft, actually! Should work on some of that...

Ooh, new snapshot!!! Must go check it out. Being on a server with you guys would be fun. It wouldn't be so scary in any case. Never been on one so I'd feel like a Minecraft newb all over again.

Wow, that dock is great!

Maybe in 1.3. you could replace the stairs with half-slabs [which will come in all four colours]
I can't believe you went to the Nether and didn't see a single Ghast! Oh man! I can't avoid the damn things! I hate ghasts so much!
The glowstone in that texture pack is really nice, sorta reminds me of the glowstone in OCD texture pack.

ahhh yes.. we senior members are wise beyond our years. We instill wisdom in our younger members. We are revered and respected by all. And then we're carted off to the Old Peoples Retirement home and left to waste away in our dotage :P

Wow, thanks guys!

 

@daydrifter - Hurray for ice fishing! Haha. I actually didn't have any plans for the ice in the area, but I've been more and more engaged in Stronghold Legends lately, which has an ice-class, so I may do some sculpture or building inspired by that. And yeah, John Williams is fairly unique. I actually played a piece a few years ago by a composer that he might have picked up some attributes from, (that's what my director said, and he too is a huge Williams fan). There was a sextuplet run and lots of dotted eighth-sixteenth notes throughout. If I can just find the name of that guy! Or even the piece! Have no idea where it could be... Haha.

 

@Wartower9 - Why thank you, kind sir! And the texture pack is amazing so far, man! I haven't found much of anything I don't like. =) Any idea of when the items will be done? Don't want to rush you or anything, of course, but I'm curious what they're going to look like. 

 

@Zyrandar - That would be ideal to replace the stairs with half-slabs! Had no idea they were doing that. I could potentially move the transitioning wood colors down the bridge to maybe the plains biome or something, then, and have the wood in the taiga all match. Yep, I never see Ghasts. Haha. I hear them all the time, but they never come out of hiding or within my view. *Shrug. Yeah, the glowstone is amazing, Wartower! Looks like lamps. That last statement made me feel awesome and heroic until dropping me and making me feel senile. Hahahaha.

Update!

 

2012-06-15_142902.png

lol

 

2012-06-15_142946.png

All that iron stuff on the bottom row of my inventory was gotten in one mass killing of zombies. =) It made me happy.

 

2012-06-15_152148.png

Thank you, Zyrandar! Level 47 is my new best friend. Haha. 

 

2012-06-15_152249.png

Out of those 10 diamond ore blocks, I got 16 diamonds! So awesome! I also got about a stack and a half of redstone from 15 blocks of redstone ore. =]

Nice diamond haul bro :) Care to explain the first picture? Are they XP orbs?
I'm glad 47 worked out for you - usually works for me.. or 42. XP level 42 is good too - and you know what they say about 42 right? :D

@wartower9 - can i have a download link for your TP? I'd like to see if I can copy and paste the glowstone texture into default if possible.

Sure. http://www.mediafire.com/?b6a66i26g76ttqn
@gilbert- In two or three days I'll have way to much time on my hands, and I'll do some items. Not so much yet, unfortunately.

@Zyrandar - Yeah, that first picture's just a bunch of XP orbs in my face. I found it funny, so I took a picture. Haha. Forty-two is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything in it, aaand a good enchanting level! =D

@Wartower - Sweet action! Don't mean to rush you, so take your time. =)

@daydrifter - I know, right?

 

Update

2012-06-16_162637.png

Endermen gonna ender.

I decided to do a lot more construction on the bridge today, and I got almost all of it done. I also had just barely enough planks and stone bricks to finish the main part of it, I think. To be honest, I could have stacks of the stuff in my chests that I didn't get out. Haha. Anywho...

 

2012-06-16_172337.png

The sight of those torches in the distance made me so very, very happy. 

 

2012-06-16_171113.png

And in this picture, you can see the two ends coming together. The bridge connecting the ice lake to the house is finally coming to a close. =')

 

2012-06-16_173230.png

I can not express in words my excitement at this point. And to top it off (and go along with the Star Wars theme of a few days ago), the climax of Luke and Leia from Star Wars played here. =D

 

2012-06-16_173421.png

And with that, the bridge from my house to the WIP village is now complete. It passes through five biomes and takes one and a half minutes of sprinting and jumping up stairs to get from one end to the other. Don't know the exact amount of blocks it took, but if anyone is dying to know, I could use one of those confangled adding machines to figure up an approximation. Haha. Now to work on the village! And hopeful ice sculpture, though, it'll probably turn out to be just a giant, unrecognizeable mass of ice. Haha.

That's actually not bad idea. And if I had any Nether Wart, I would totally do that. But alas, I do not. Haha. And I'll be permanently moving by base (hopefully) pretty soon, so for the time being, I'm just going to stay in this. *Shows picture like Vanna White.

2012-06-16_220140.png

 

I will need to run back to my first base for all my food, though. I already ate all mine in my inventory (notice my hunger bar). Haha.

Anywho, I'm thinking of making the top part of the building more off-center. Any input? Looks a little too... something. Or maybe making the roof more like the overhang on the bottom would fix it. I'ma try that tomorrow. Haha. 

Anywho again, I hope for the next video update to walk along the bridge so you guys can get the full effect of it and then show off the (hopefully) complete village. Speaking of getting the full effect, when were the dates for the save file uploads? Or are we not doing that? Seems like it was either July or June 18 as the first one, but that was a while back. Haha.

At least you still have food... I've been going hunting.

How about June 20th?
