There might be an above-ground lava source nearby (which is a VERY rare and neat occurrence). If there is, mark the location somehow and build a house around it.
I wandered for quite a while and found nothing, but when I returned after locating something else I found a lava flow coming out the side of a mountain. I also saw strange light sources on the ground, coming from nothing but still glowing.
I can't put out the forest fire, I've coated trees in water and come back to find floating fountains with a stump at the bottom. I'm a little worried it will reach my housing area, which is still very far away.

I did finally manage to find a snowy region on this map (I dumped my first map when I swapped computers, and found this map to be even more entertaining than the other.) I've been looking for one ever since I found out he was going to put snow in the game.

I built a mine all the way to the bottom of the map, like I always do, and I spent a good amount of time carving out a massive area around any lava pits, but the coolest thing I found was when I happened into a cavern that led all the way to the surface, directly outside my large mountain castle.

Re: Minecraft

Fire only burns when that chunk is loaded. So what you can do is run away from it, and when you're a few chunks away, leave the world and come back and keep running home. The fire won't load and you'll have time. Exit a few time to make sure (or use an editor to just move you away from it).

Then just make a fire break round your house.

Thats what I was thinking. Start rounding up all the cobble you can.

Or stop playing until next weeks update and hope for rain.

Re: Minecraft

Fire breaks are gaps, no building needed. Added bonus of getting a ton of wood.

Re: Minecraft

Aww guess you're right. I forgot grass doesn't burn.

Meanwhile at my place, the Children of the Great Pumpkin continues to grow. I'm getting nervous.

Re: Minecraft

I managed to stop the fire, there was a decent sized plain in between that forest and mine but for a large stand of trees, I covered that area in water until the fire burned out. Now that area is a large plain full of ghost lights....



Oddest thing. I find that if I dig in one, the light completely disappears.

Re: Minecraft

Here's the latest on my house, which is rapidly turning into a castle. I've added a western wing and a new tower (in back), and I'm beginning to wall off a courtyard. Didn't really feel like spending twenty minutes quarrying, though, so I've left it incomplete for now.

Weird. I've seen the opposite happen when I'm cutting down trees, as the leaves decay they sometimes leave shadows on the ground as though they were still there. They tend to go away if I leave the area and come back. Perhaps it has something to do with the new lighting system?


Speaking of light, most of the major work on my village is complete, all buildings are finished and torches are in place. I still need to raise the walls on my fortress and the town walls, I need to redirect the stream near Impossible Falls so that it flows out to sea (something I meant to do ages ago) and build a path around the other side of town, then work in that area will be complete. But I just had mcmap make me a map of my world at night to see what it's like, and this is what it came up with:



My world is brighter than North Korea. It looks like everything behind the town walls should be bright enough to stop monsters spawning, now I just need to find enough coal to light up the rest of my world.

Re: Minecraft

I've been working on my own little single player map lately. I've got lots of resources:



But I think I want to start a larger project now. I'm open to any ideas.

A few more pics of my world:

Here's my beach house, the first building I constructed, slightly enlarged and it now leads down to the above storage/smelting area and also connects to a tunnel to my main mining complex:



Right in front of it is a mooring berth.



I have a tree farm, a wheat farm and constructed some roads by now.



Finally, a general overview.





Any suggestions? I've been thinking about building a nice and large residence for myself somewhere, but I don't really know what it should look like.

Re: Minecraft

Where do you people find the time to build all these elaborate houses? Mine is still pretty much a cobblestone shack (albeit a floating one) compared to your (multiple) living spaces.

Re: Minecraft

Well done Iasius. And I love that texture pack. Sadly my pc doesn't quite have the horsepower to handle one of those ultra high rez packs.

Itisnotlogical - I don't know about these guys, but I put in a few hours each day working in my world. Its just that addictive.

Spent a few hours on Roberts server today. Cooool! It has some great scenery. You guys need to try it out!

Building stuff is pretty much my main focus. When I'm working on a castle or a house, I pretty much go and spend time gathering materials, and then come back and use six or seven stacks of cobblestone. Then I start all over again.

Re: Minecraft

After arduous effort collecting all that cobblestone, I have FINALLY rebuilt my house, now fireproof thanks to the magic of cobblestone:



I have also fixed my lava room, so hopefully I won't have any more accidents... like the one that made me have to rebuild my house in the first place:



I should have made the back a full square of glass, but I didn't really feel like a trip down to the nearest beach. Maybe I'll shave off the excess cobblestone so that it at least looks like it's supposed to be rounded at the back.
