Finally got some rain the other night in my SSP game. I also played around a little bit with Eihort, and discovered a massive arch bordering on a snow biome near my spawn point. So I've been working on removing the center of the arch so far and rebuilding it entirely out of glass.
Here's some random pics of my projects. I'm planning on linking all these areas with minecart tracks at some point. I think the most difficult two to link will be the plateau home and the arch.
First up is my plateau home..
Secondly is my spawn point
A look down from inside my glass arch..
An attempted view of the arch from below and to the side..
And finally, a view of Fort Midwater which was built around a solitary tree standing out of the water.
