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
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
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?
