Placing Paths

Ok, long story short the mushroom water feature thingy I build was starting to annoy me so I destroyed it, made a new mushroom and then made it a water feature.

Now onto making a path and properly lighting up the area (aka not just torches dotted all around) . . . A few minutes later:

So I think it is looking quite good so far, unfortunately I seem to have run out of sand. Luckily there is a desert about a minute from here. Let’s go shopping (for sand, which is free. Cause that works) One day and an iron shovel later I’m exactly 100 blocks better off in sand. Back to work then.

Annnndd god damn it! The server crashed, guess I will have to resume my path building another day =( Sorry for this quite short post then (and keep crafting!)

More Mushrooms

So, after a few days of  ‘End of stream’ errors the server finally decided to work again. Back to making this village . . . First job – extend the pond into a river. After a day of long hard work I went to bed in our bedshroom and and came back down to take a picture when it was day again.

Then a second after I took that screenshot “ssssss” and boom. Luckily I slept at the village this time so I didn’t have to walk all the way back.

So yh, back to work. I’m going to make the river bottom all sand (cause it looks nicer) and yet another day passes, job done. My shovel also seems to have taken a beating and need to be repaired. Another trip back to my house it is then (my diamonds are stowed away in my basement) but I think I will be fine with an iron shovel for now.

Now to make a water feature, I think a mushroom will do just fine. Yup, that looks pretty dandy =D

I’ll try and get a few posts ready in this session so that I still have some stuff to post over the next few days if the server goes down again. So until next time, keep crafting!

Mushroom Mad

So, I finally decided to post some stuff to my blog again. It has been forever since I last did and I am starting to feel a little guilty for not keeping to a schedule or at least keep posting once a fortnight or somet like that. I’ve just not been feeling like posting lately, or somet.

But anyways, Laura has got her internet back finally (she has moved house) and Burnt has got a new server map. So we decide to go off exploring the other day and I said we should create a mushroom house. That soon started turning into a mushroom village.

Firstly we made the kitchen thingy (the original mushroom house) it contains the essentials: workbench, chests and furnaces. Next up was our bedroom shroom. But as there was a small lake/pond next to where we decided to build (I forgot to take a picture of the pond in question) we didn’t have much space. Solution? Fill in the pond and make a new one beside it.

Bedroom shroom, done. And at this point Laura had to go off so I shall end this post here (sorry for it being quite short) and I will continue when she next gets on (which should be in the next few days)

Farming

Over the last few days I’ve being improving my mob grinder, which is taking up quite a lot of my time. I’ve also built a little farm next to my house. Oh, I got a new texture pack as well – Minecraft4Kids 😀

Farm 1

It’s in the garden to the right of my house, only quite small but it will be ok.

Farm 2

And I also made my mushroom farm a bit larger and put some torches up in the roof to stop monsters from spawning in there. That would kinda make it pointless having a farm of food and when harvesting it losing health.

Mushroom Farm

Sorry for this very small post, been a bit occupied with school over the last few days. I hope to get a bigger post out soon. And a quick notice when Beta 1.7 comes out Burnt has said he will be starting a new map on the server so expect some more posts when that happens.

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.
