Minecraft -15- Beefing Up Security

After my recent misfortune of having creepers jump into the mine and blow up in my face several times I have decided it’s time to beef up security so that they can’t do that anymore.

This also helps prevent skeletons from getting a vantage point from which to play the sniper against me.

Wanted: New Floor Designs

Or more specifically, the ability to craft custom flooring designs.

Of course, I’m talking about being able to do so in Minecraft.  I know that I could just load up (or even make) a custom texture pack and have things look any way I’d like but that doesn’t work for two reasons

1.  suppose I go ahead and make a custom texture pack and give something the look that I want, say a fancy laminate floor design.  As soon as the next Minecraft update happens I have to re-create that texture pack (or wait for it’s creators to update it) before my preferred custom look works again.

1. I think it’d be much better to be able to craft such things in game… say have a new block called ‘floor tile’.  Maybe have several slots for such blocks…. then have the ability to upload a jpg or png texture file for that particular block.  This ‘floor tile’ block would then be able to be placed on top of the stone, dirt or wood that you’ve used for the floor, giving you the custom look that you want.

*I* think it’s a great idea and it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to implement.  If I were a coder I’d start working on it myself.  As it is, all I’ve got is a great idea.

Minecraft -13- How NOT to Hunt Creepers

After having expanded the mining base and taking quite a bit off of the mountain I provided a high view of the dig.

Then I got this brilliant idea to go creeper hunting at night with only 15 arrows.  As you can probably guess, there was at least one explosion.

Minecraft -12- A Good Start

An episode or two previously I had asked for opinions from viewers about what would be the best way to handle the parts that involved a lot of repetitive “grunt work”.  Whether to do all of it “on camera”, normal speed, sped up 400%, or to do most of this grunt work “off camera” and let the videos be a combination of updates and building & exploring.

There was only one suggestion but it was a good one.  So I’ll be doing most grunt work off camera and the videos will include updates, building & exploration.

This update shows off some of the changes that I have made in and around the mining base and the progress I have made in clearing and leveling the mountaintop.

Minecaft -9- Owned At Home

After getting killed first by spiders and then again by zombies I started thinking seriously about attacking that mountain in a different way.

While I was getting ready for this attack I got seriously owned while in the supposed safety of my own base!

The moral of this is never be too sure how safe you really are.  Odds are you’ve made a mistake somewhere.
