A New Start

Once again, sorry for not posting much in the last few days. Just got GTA 4 working on my pc and have been playing that for a while. Still got around to some Minecraft though. Just going to be a quick post because I’ve got to start getting ready (going camping with some friends tomorrow)

Cool World 1

So the other day I made a new world to make a entry for this competition (mine is the Night – Time Railway one. Go and vote it up :D) But anyways, I made a world for it and it turned out like this:

Cool World 2

Cool World 3

All from a random seed as well, no input from me here.

Cool World 4

Cool World 5

As soon as I saw these sights I duplicated the world and set off to make my entry. I returned to the world the other day and found a place for my home. Probably not the most exiting place, I moved away from the massive cliffs and settled down over here.

New House Outside 1

New House Outside 2

New House Outside 3

Don’t really know why but I just wanted a normal house for now, I might move into one of the cliffs in the future. The house took a couple of Minecraft days to complete (as you can see I still need to make some more glass for one of the windows, and make some furniture and such to decorate this inside a bit more) At least it’s liveable.

New House Inside 2

As I said I’m going camping tomorrow so don’t expect any posts for a while (not like I’ve kept to my post every-other day schedules lately anyways)

New Video – Minecart Dispenser

Sorry for not posting much in the last few days, had some homework that needed to be done and I’ve been playing Terraria a bit more frequently (started a new character and world) Oh, and I’ve also been working on this. Enjoy 😀

The Minecraft 1.6 Update + Building a Temple Part 1

Wow, the changelist for 1.6 is pretty amazing. Aparently about 108 lines long acording to Notch’s last tweet. Most of them are quite small fixes but there are some main additions and some big fixes in there.

Tall, grass, Nether in SMP, Hatches, and one that a lot of constructors in Minecraft have been dreding would one day come – Fixed minecarts next to each other causing extreme velocities (sorry!) As you can probably tell Notch knows that would annoy a lot of people. He did make up for it by making the current booster/powered rail tracks more speedy which is nice because they were a bit sluggish in my opinion.

Moving away from the updates and back to my blog, me, Burnt and Tatty are working on the server on some sort of temple thing. None of us are really sure what is is going to be yet. All we know is that at this rate it is going to end up gigantinc. We flattened out an area yesterday and moved aproxemtly 42 stacks (2,688 blocks!) Which is a massive amount. We did that in a hour or so. We also built a circle that has a diameter of 31. Me and Tatty started to fill the whole thing with still water which took a while but it looks pretty cool. I don’t think Burnt apporves, he said the circle was too small anyways so oh well 😀

Here are some pics of our progress so far:

Minecraft – Lava Lamps

Yey! Another Minecraft post. Looks like even a game as addictive as Terraria still can’t stop me from going back to add to my Minecraft house 😀 Also I don’t think I will be doing as many Terraria posts Until I get further into the game and start fighting bosses etc, right now I’m really just mining and finding odd things. I will still make small update posts though.

Minecraft - Building the Waterfall

So I decided the hill behind my swimming pool looked a little bare and I wanted to add something there. How about a waterfall?The Dirt around the top is there because a creeper decided to jump out of a tree onto me -.-

Minecraft - Done?

There we go, done! Or . . .

Minecraft - How About some Lava Lamps

How about a lava lamp in the top?

Minecraft - Yey!


Minecraft - Done!

Finished, and I think that looks quite cool. I just hope nobody griefs this as water + still lava isn’t too good as far as I’m concerned . . .

The Whoopee Cushion

This is going to be, yet another short, picture post. I’m very sorry about that and I think I am going to do another Minecraft post soon so stay tuned for that. But this post is about some more Terraria, and one of the weird items I found.

Terraria - Whoopee Cushion

Yes, that is a whoopee cushion. And yes that is Terraria running at 1360×768. I found a rather cool mod of sorts (actually more of a launcher) You can find more about that here. The only thing with using the modified launcher is that some of the textures are messed up and just running Terraria in full screen seems to make the cursor stick for me, using the mod or not.

Terraria - The Grappling Hook

I also found a hook and made myself a grappling hook.

Terraria - Mana Crystal

Then I found some more fallen stars and made a Mana Crystal and upped my Mana capacity.

Terraria - Mushroom Farm

Thennn I got some mushroom seeds and started to make a mushroom farm/field thingy.

Giving the Guide a Home

The first thing I decided to do today was to move the guide out of my home because he was starting to annoy me (opening doors and letting in nasties) so I removed the chair from my top floor and headed out to make him an new place to live.

Terraria - Giving the Guide a Home

I don’t think he deserves a propper home, so this house in the ground will have to do for him, or he can just live outside 😀

Terraria - The Guides Home

You will probably notice this last photo is took later on when I had lots more items and such

Terraria - Improving The House

I also did some more improvements to my home, including covering the roof with grass and in the future sunflowers and tree(s)

Terraria - Treasure Chest

Yey! A treasure chest (ohh an enchanted boomerang)

Terraria - Heart Crystal

Yey! A heart Crystal

Terraria - Another Chest!

Yey! Another chest

I’m hoping to try and fight The Big Eye soon, (yes I do know its proper name, I’m going to start calling it that though)

Terraria! The Beginning

Terraria came out a few days ago and I’ve been playing that mostly over the last few days. This post is just gona be some of the pictures that I’ve took whilst playing, I hope to be writing some more in-depth posts soon. But untill then I hope this will do 😀

The River

Terraria is coming out today, supposedly. It’s not currently out (6:30pm GMT) so I decided to make a river on the sever, like you do.

javaw 2011-05-16 17-41-01-40

It may have took me about 3 iron shovels and 30 or so minutes to do but I think it was worth it. Now I wonder what Burnt will say . . .

javaw 2011-05-16 17-30-40-68

Woops, I think I may have flooded that cave slightly.

javaw 2011-05-16 17-40-11-67

javaw 2011-05-16 17-51-58-87

The finished river (now with added reeds) I’m guessing Terraria will be out by tonight, if so I will be playing that a lot more than Minecraft for the next few weeks. So expect some post containing content from Terraria 😀

The Rollercoaster

You may have noticed in my last post some minecart track in the background, the day before I got griefed I had started building a mini-rollercoaster coming out of my tree house. This is going to be more of a picture post showing that off, so enjoy!

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 1

It starts up the tree

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 2

Then along here

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 3

Drops off the hill and goes into this hill where there is . . .

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 4

Lava! (When I first made this I had the track only one block above the lava, so it was flush) and when I tested it I set alight as I ran through. I then thought I would be clever and put myself out with water. I did this in the exit out of the cave, which goes uphill. The water ran back down into the hill and turned about half of the lava into obsidian. So I ended up having to mine all of that out for about 10 minutes before continuing

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 5

The setting sun over the cave exit

Minecraft - Rollercoaster 6

The track then runs under here and you can see the end on the right

I got Griefed :( (and a trololol)

Just a really quick post today, mainly because I got griefed and I’m currently getting back on my feet. But after getting some of my stuff back we did manage to have a it of fun 🙂

The griefer was Squiglesheep, and he had every right to grief me. Just not this bad. Basically I buried his wolf and put obsidian outside his door (a whole 2 blocks!) for a joke. He dicided to pay me back by pouring lava on my roof, I have a wooden house. Also some of my chests got broke and a lot of the stuff de-spawned (Burnt and Alzedio saved some of it)

Minecraft - Hello Spider

Hello Mr Spider! How are you this fine day?

Minecraft - Zombie Hug

Hugs all around!

Minecraft - Trololol

We found a trolololol
