I know right?... Do Endermen put out the fire when they teleport? 

And that's also a good point, and mainly what I was thinking about. How does 30 posts a page sound? It's 20 now and was 50 before.

Update!

 

2012-07-01_160231.png

I think I finally have enough dirt to start work on another sky island. This one'll be higher up and, therefore, more awesome. 

 

2012-07-01_160617.png

Here's a picture of that Fire Aspect sword I gots. I'ma use it like Wartower suggested and wait until my diamond one starts to wear out. 

 

2012-07-02_153611.png2012-07-02_153638.png

And I found some more diamonds! I don't know why I get so excited when I find these since I have enough to get by for a while. Haha. Anywho, I ended up with 11 after using my Fortune pick. =]

 

2012-07-03_002808.png2012-07-03_003110.png

And I finally found where all you guys made camp. Haha. It only took me a few months, was it? Oh, and I decided to get out Rei's Minimap to try and get used to it again before the Hardcore LP. I must admit, I sorta missed it. Haha.

 

2012-07-03_003949.png

Haiz! I got sum lether boootz! =D

Aren't Fortune picks the best? lol.

Dirt... I have a lot of that. digging out huge holes and terraforming mountains helps with that.

Leather Bootz FTW!

Oh hey, you found Merris! Except it's a parallel universe where Merris hasn't been founded yet. Weird! I'm surprised there aren't any monsters. When I first found that area, monsters camped out there all the time, especially creepers.

Snazzy boots ya got there. Why the leather? Are you low on iron?

Diamonds are exciting every time for me, too, no matter how many I have tucked away in a chest. Finding diamonds is one of the best experiences in the game! :D And I cannot wait to see the next floating isle! Which theme are you going for this time around?

Fortune picks are the best! Haha. I love them so.

And yeah, I've been trying to find terraforming projects for me to do to increase my dirt supply. Found one today that got me a grand total of.... drum roll.... 10 blocks! =D Haha.

Oh, there's a metric tonne of monsters in Merris's potential land spot. Haha. The lighting bug just doesn't allow you to see them. In fact, if memory serves, I almost died there. Had to run through a little opening because of all the junk chasing me. Haha.

I chose leather because I just got done killing a whole bunch of cows with that looting sword (I liked watching all the steak and leather fall, haha). I could make a few full sets of diamond armor if I wanted, but... Yeah. I want diamond boots. Haha. Hold that thought........................................................................... Done! Just have to enchant them now. =]

Oh, goodness. I haven't even thought of a theme for it yet. I'm thinking maybe it can be my farming island and have wheat, pumpkins, and (possibly) animal pens. I'm really hoping to make these islands self-sustaining. 

 

Update!

2012-07-03_115743.png

Found dis village! It wasn't too far from my base, actually. Kinda surprised I didn't find it before I found that other one. Haha. And the river that goes out from my house ends literally right by here. It's so convenient! It does pass through a taiga, though, so parts of the river are frozen. Just makes it seem like an obstacle course. =P

 

2012-07-03_120015.png

Then I found all these pumpkins! It got me thinking...

 

2012-07-03_121124.png

This village didn't have any iron golems, so why not, right? Doubt I'll be back until the trading system is introduced, so we'll see how well these iron golems can protect the villagers. 

 

2012-07-03_154819.png2012-07-03_171745.png2012-07-03_154829.png

And it wouldn't be an update without more diamonds! Twenty-four in all today!

 

2012-07-03_170610.png2012-07-03_223452.png

And with those new diamonds, I made a new pickaxe with an amazing enchant (I get so excited with any sort of enchantment, so this might not be an amazing enchant to anybody else, haha) and some dymand bootz!

And you say I have too many diamonds... How the heck do you have a stack?! Lol.
Diamond Shovels make me rage... It's a waste of diamond! But, y'know, people like quick-digging.

Nice village! I might have to find those directions at some point... Does that village have a blacksmith/butcher?

I have a stack of diamonds. I can afford diamond shovels. Hahaha. Besides, I gots to build sky islands, and that's a lot of dirt to be dug!
The village does have a blacksmith and butcher. The chest has an iron sword, sapling, and wheat, I think, so not much. Still want directions?

Not yet, but maybe for 1.3. I need to get a those two villages so that I can get a full set of villagers. Collect them all!

I was going to try and get a priest for the next update, but then they went and took zombie flesh off the trading system, so now I'm all like nah. Haha. Will the village still be there in the next update? Or are they not changing anything like that, just adding the new stuff in unchanged chunks, etc.?

Ha! It's on the YouTubes, now!

Linkety-link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBdxS4YXRJU&feature=vmdshb
And video if you don't want to go to the linkety-link

Umm, self-sustaining as in one will have a farm, one will have a forest, and one will have a cobble generator and by mechanical-like with redstone. I also hope to build a few hostile mob islands: a pyramid; a creepy, dark forest; a cave, maybe. So, yeah, renewable resources. Haha.

And yes, Wartower, I have bunches and bunches of diamonds. Hahaha.

 

EDIT: For some reason, this thing really doesn't like the way I HTML. Haha.

Just watched, enjoyed, commented and liked. :D You always make me laugh every time. Sniper skills to place glass panes on glass panes, lol! That is so true.

Loving your ideas! Ah, now I get what you mean. You have a lot of awesome plans!

Look at all those diamonds!!!

Ooh, the farm island sounds lovely. Making each isle self sustainable, that's a clever idea!

I believe that 1.3 just adds the new stuff in unexplored chunks. That's why I'm not exploring. I want jungle ruins and desert villages and pyramids. :P (is it sad I mostly want the jungle ruins for the blocks? I want those circle things legit in survival...)

We need more uses for zombie flesh, or have zombies not drop so much of it so often. It would be nice to be able to smelt it into leather like in Harvestcraft.

I know right? And I got 15 more last night and 19 more today! I have a lot of time on my hands now that school's out. Haha.

Maybe not so much each island being self-sustaining, but the collection being so, if that makes sense. If not, hopefully you'll see what I mean. Haha.

Adding the stuff to unexplored chunks is fine with me! I still have a ton of stuff to the north and west of my main base I haven't explored. =D

Update!

Completely forgot about these picture until just a few seconds ago. Haha. My video update is currently being loaded to YouTube, so expect it to be on here in a few hours.

2012-07-04_002622.png

Just thought this was a neat picture with gold and diamond right by each other. Don't remember when I took this, but for one of my mining trips, I got 15 diamonds, and in the next, I got 19. =)

 

2012-07-04_011018.png

Decided it was about time for a minetrack to get from one end of the mine to the other. It saves me a bunch of walking and time! (And got rid of a bunch of useless gold and iron, haha.)

Oh right, school's out! Yay more time for updates now, and I cannot wait for that video! I'll be keeping a close eye on the Youtubes! :D

Collection being self sustainable. As in, there are renewable resources on them?

Thanks! =D And hopefully I can see most of the plans through. Haha. It's gonna take lots of work, but it should be worth it. I hope. Haha.

It's definitely worth it. Just imagine when you have tons of islands up in the sky. It'll look amazing!

Mmmmm. I suppose you are correct. Haha.

Update!

2012-07-04_162256.png

Started work on the next island. I thought seeing the first island from this direction and high-up was pretty nifty. 

 

2012-07-04_164058.png

Finished the placing of the dirt and shaping of the island. I just stopped and thought about how I'm going to have some islands lower than others. I suppose the only way to build one is through a water elevator. Might prove to be good, comedic video update material full of me falling/failing/flailing. Haha.

 

2012-07-04_170717.png

Almost finished...

 

2012-07-04_171918.png

Done! =] Those are pumpkins just beyond the tree in the center. I'm thinking that if I ever get any, I can put melons in front of where I'm standing now. Kinda have a nice symmetrical farm going on with stuff on all four sides.

Hahaha, seeing your your bridge on the mini-map makes it seems huge!

And nice island! It looks really cool, with the leaves at the bottom of the tree. Can I take a guess that there is light (pumpkins/glowstone) underneath?

I know right?? And seeing the bridge on the mini-map and walking along it, I always think of how I actually took the time to build it. Haha. 

You are very wise, sir. Yes, there are jack-o'-lanterns underneath that leaf thing. Haha. It was about the only way to have light around the tree without it being too crowded and messy.

Small update with no pictures!

Having sinus issues makes my attention span that of a small rodent; so, needless to say, I didn't play too much Minecraft today. Haha.

I killed some zombies and finally enchanted those booootz with Feather Falling IV and Protection II.

I also found a shortcut down from the farm island to the abandoned NPC village! =] Turns out, there's a convenient vertical line from the edge of island to a pond right by the village. Haha. Missed the first time, but made it the second! ;D

Join the club... I've been busy witht some stuff for the past week, so I apologize for the lack of updates...

 

Nice boots! Just be careful- being damaged by mobs, fire and the such make the boots take damage, and this means they will go away relatively quickly. I noticed this ~halfway into my first iron boots, and I put them away because I was wasting them. Just a suggestion. On second thought, if they're diamond it'll be awhile before they break. Hmm...

Awww sinus issues, eh? My brother has a lot of health problems, and his sinuses are so bad that he had to have surgery...twice! I feel bad for anyone who has sinusitis or asthma or anything like that. Give me your address, I'll send you a box of tissues. :P

I love the new island! Keep looking through those abandoned mineshafts. You'll find some melon seeds eventually.

Seeing the first island from a different angle is always nice. The shape of it is quite natural looking, despite it being floating in the sky, lol.

Yeah, I already fell a lot and took some what-should-have-been-fall-damage and the booootz are still perfect. Haha. 

I remember you iron boots and when you put them away. That was like forever ago!

Yeah, sinuses. Your brother has my sympathy; this is the only real health ailment I have (besides being really underweight), so I can't imagine going through this and other stuff. Wait, are you serious about those tissues? I could always use another box... Hahaha.

Yeah, it does look pretty natural except for the whole defying gravity part. Haha. Maybe the bridge just has a really large support moment at its base. *Shrug.

(you really did put Earthcraft in your sig lol!)

I am dead serious about the tissues. You can never have too many! XD Promise I won't slip some anthrax in there. ;D Aww, underweight? I'll slip in a home made apple pie, too. We'll call it a care package. I'm sure it won't melt into an indiscriminate pool of apple goo in this sweltering heat.

Back to topic, who needs supports? It's Minecraft, everything defies gravity! Even sand and gravel pretend to float when they're feeling naughty.

(Heck yes, I did. Hahaha.)

Anthrax... I'm feeling much better. (Read in the voice of the guy on Monty Python. A newt? Hahaha.) I could see the pie slowly vanishing on the transit down here as someone from each checkpoint gets a slice. My mom comes back from the post office with an empty box and crumbs all over her. *Shakes head. Hahaha. Your care package would turn into a nice snack for about eight people. =D

Well, I did just get done with my Statics class. Support moments are on my brainz. Haha. Course, I guess I'm back to the whole different universe thing... Haha. 

 

Oh, yeah! Update!

I found 11 diamonds today. That is all.

I keep running into Monty Python references everywhere lately! Need to watch Holy Grail again...it's one of my favorite movies ever! (I bought it on DVD for my dad but it was ahem, sort of for myself lol)

Or yeah, the pie would get eaten. Kind of like when someone goes to McDonald's and by the time they arrive home, the fries are gone. xD

11 diamonds?! How many is that all together now? O:

As do I! That's why I used that reference, actually; somebody's avatar on the MC forums re-enacted a little bit of that scene. It was so awesome. I sat and watched it a few times. Haha. (Pretty sure everyone's guilty of that. Haha.)

Exactly! Hahaha. The same thing happens with doughtnuts, Pizza Hut breadsticks, Chick-fil-a anything, the list just goes on. Hahaha.

And yep! That only makes 116 diamonds so far in the chest. With the sword, picks, shovel, axe, and armor I've made, I think it's around 140 that I've found. You should see how much redstone I have... Ooh! Lemme count it! 2393 redstone dust, not counting the redstone torches and powered rails I've made. Haha. Branch mining is my new friend.

So... Much... Ore...

Hahaha. I know right?? The next island I'm going to build is going to be like an industrial type thing, so I'm thinking about doing something decorative with all the excess ore I have. Maybe put it in the flooring of a furnace house or something. I know I'm definitely going to have obsidian and lapis blocks in the floor; might put diamond, gold, and iron somewhere else. *Shrug.

I do have the starting of this island build planned for the next video update. I might even finish it since it's going to be a smaller island than the other two and will require much less dirt. =)
