Re: Minecraft

^^ Owwww, damn guys.

I live in a wooden treehouse in the middle of a rainforest. I don't even let anything that makes fire into the house! If I need to dispose of anything, I just chuck it over a cliff.

Any netherrack, flint and steel, and lava I have stays in a chest out in the desert next to my portal.

In other news, boy I wish I was doing a video capture. I was walking along the platform next to my airship just after sunset when a fucking Creeper comes barreling down from the top of the partially finished balloon at full speed, hits the bridge next to me with a loud SSSSS!, bounces over the railing and falls about 500 feet to his death. Scared the hell out of me, but talk about an Epic Fail...

Next morning I stuck some torches up there.

... Why put your portal in a desert? Island with floating burning Netherrack FTW

Re: Minecraft

So Robert let me on his server, and I've been poking around there the past couple of days. I've got myself established now, with the main level of my house completed. Here's a picture of my Great Hall (all of my houses have to have a Great\Grand\Main\whatever Hall; I'm egotistical like that).

Wow, nice! Your texture pack makes it look much better than vanilla.

Well, I already have my giant pyramid and mineshaft out there. So I just put the portal about halfway between them and my main base. Just seemed convenient. and like I said, I live in a very flamable house. I want anything involving fire as far away from greenery as possible.

Looking good Canadave. I love the wall textures. It makes the room look woven.

Re: Minecraft

I love your house as well Canadave. Looks like some sort of desert motif thingy you got going on there. I've been busy replacing the burned-away portions of my house with cobblestone, still not complete

For those of you having trouble finding wolves, I was working inside my newly extended fortress today and saw this, and I felt the need to rub it in.

Re: Minecraft

I have no need to search for wolves, because I know for fact that they're useless.

Heh, yeah, I guess you aren't seeing the same way I am, are you? I'll have to switch to vanilla at some point and check out how things "really" look.

Incidentally, it's only a partially desert themed, that's in behind the house. It's waterfront on the other side.

Re: Minecraft

The biome layout in this game is nuts. Heres a view from the back of my house,



And the front.



Meanwhile, progress on the airship continues slowly. I've got a lot of sheep to sheer.

Re: Minecraft

I went back to a previous world thats mostly forest and tiaga and got me a wolfie!! Would have had two if I'd had more bones on me.

Thankfully this world is mostly flat.

Re: Minecraft

What block is the bottom of your airship made out of? I can't tell because of the texture pack, but it almost looks like... chests...?
