Don’t get me wrong, I’m a gamer, I’ll play both games over the Easter long-weekend! But yeah, hmm, I wanna catch up to Portal first before trying out Portal 2, as Notch highly recommends :-o
Aaaaaanyhoo, obviously I’ll still be mining, but here’s what I’ve been up to lately!
I’ve started to build a sky-high Sandcastle of some sorts!
But yeah, as you can see I’ve started to build an outside-staircase going to a 2nd floor that I’m building, then I’ll expand upwards! It used to be a floating island that I started from bottom to top (I started by making a stone room below)
I find that I can only make a symmetric structure if I start it from scratch and not build INTO something like a mountain… I’d love to make a symmetric sandcastle with a courtyard or something, but it’ll take a while… I’ll probably try it once I go a bit higher and place enough sandstone to be my base foundation.
But anyhoo, for some highlights for the past 2 days:
- Built my very first water elevator! Voot voot! I used sand and initially died by pushing myself in the boat while its frame was stuck in sand :| So now whenever I use it I make sure I don’t go too far into the walls since they’re not stable. Sure, I know sand and gravel just isn’t stable, but it wouldn’t go with the theme! Also, I’m saving sandstone for the castle above :p
- So I kept dying 2 nights ago right? Well, the whole of last night was spent MIIINING again, and I found 7 Diamond this time!!! I’ve also got tons of redstone, a bit of Lapiz, and a whole bunch of cobble to make into stone!
Yeah, all in all, productive :D
So yeeeeaaaah, I’ll have a whole log of my adventures over the Easter weekend! GAD I love long breaks from work, don’t you? :|
