My Minecraft Mountain Kingdom. Beginning 11/21/11

So I made a creative world in minecraft, of course giving it the ever tasteful name of “Doo Dee Doo” Because, well, I have no creativity. So when I opened up the world, I did what I do with all creative worlds and wandered aimlessly trying to find the best place to build. I found this place, and it’s so hard to explain, but it’s just a huge group of mountains, and they’re not like shallow, or slight inclines, they’re like super steep, and they are a few floating islands, one of which I built up, making it wider. I decided I would make a mountain village, which will have several small buildings on top of the mountains and on the side of the mountains, there will be paths connecting the mountains, and for ones that will have to have the paths too low there will be tunnels going through them making it to the top. I have several screen shots, though because it’s so huge I will try to also explain them. So far I have a few connecting bridges and one building, there are also a few places where I added waterfalls, but not many, like maybe 2 or three at the most.

So, let’s get it started, I will include small explinations on the bottom of them. I hope you enjoy my ever artistic shots of minecraft.

Alright, so this is one angle of the mountains, as you can tell, there’s quite a bit to it, the farther areas didn’t even load. And that’s my little house. I would have built it all the way up, but because the top of that mountain is close to the cloudline, the houses will be shorter. I wanted to bring the roof up to an absolute point, but things don’t always work out that way

Another shot, of more of the mountains, this is so you can see how high they are. I love the formations on this, like the weird little formation close to the middle, here you can also see a small floating island.

The mountains are a border between the forest and the desert, which I think is pretty cool.

I was excited about that lava fall, I didn’t put it there and it looked really cool.

And of course a lava pit!

Another look at how steep things are.

Another lava pit

Another look at the steepness. I hate being up this high because it takes a while to load, this causes the game to lag quite often.

Sun was setting and I thought it looked cool.

A look at the main mountains from the desert side.

More mountains! Here you can see the paths a little bit, though it’s dark because, well, it’s night.

I guess I took another picture of the lava fall. I put another one on that little piece that is jutting out.

Another angle of the land bridge.

That’s the floating island I built up.

Those sheep are fucked.

This is one of my favorite forms. It’s so cool looking!

See that awesome lava/water fall? I made that, too bad it didn’t turn out well.

Anywho, that’s it for now, I’ll try to post more as there’s more progress. Hopefully I will finish it without the game accidentally getting deleted. Hope you enjoyed!



Relapse!! 9/21/11

Well, after a week of being kept from slleeping pills, because my nuerologist decided to give me something that would have less of the sleep makingf ormula or whatever they put into it. Turns out that without that formula I can’t sleep, I sear sometimes I think hes putting me on placebos. Anyway, my normal sleeping pills are back and I couldn’t be happier. The only draw back is after I take them I need to lock myself in my room so I don’t do anything stupid. at least when i do something stupid here I can keep it private. Ummm again, with the review I am going to be doing for “The Debt” that will have to hold till later, maybe tomorrow. Appreantly when I am on these things I loose my balance and pretty much act like i’m drunk.. Oh! I’m also building a minecraft materpeice!! A plantation styled house. Hopefully people will enjoy it when it’s done, but considering most the things were made while I was on these things might be a bad thing, oh well. Nighty nightt~

(I completely forgot to post this last night XD Oh well~)

Minecraft 1.8!!! 9/14/11

Oh lord! It’s finally here! The all new and highly anticipated update to Minecraft! It was originally going to be released on the 8th, which was my birthday (I keep forgetting to post about that) Anyway, for me, the wait for this release was filled with excitement and fear. Excitement because of all the new stuff, the abandoned mines and towns, the deeper dungeons, the insane canyons, and the high high mountains! Not to mention all the cool new lighting effects! As for the fear, that can be summarized in one word, Endermen! If you have read my previous blogs, you know that I have had legit nightmares about these things. They are terrifying!

Anywhozers, I have been playing this all day, when I first saw it updating itself, I wasn’t sure how to react(Again, because of the endermen). I like the fact that you need to dig your own supplies out in survival mode but I also enjoy the fact that you don’t have to deal with monsters in creative mode. Lucky for me they kept the peaceful mode so I can explore and dig all I want without feeling like a cheat through the easy pick and the insta blocks. I might go into creative mode at some point so I can come to terms with my fear of the Endermen. I can see them and kill them and there’s nothing they can do to hurt me.

So far, in my new 1.8 adventure, I have already found a village! It was really close to my spawn area, so I kinda used one of the houses as my base, it looks like, from what I have seen in walkthroughs and my own exploring, the villages all seem to be the same, I have a feeling that in newer installments they will add more variety to their villages. I have also found a cave that I am currently exploring, the caves are deffinately more complex in this update, there are more huge chambers in the caves which I am happy with. I have also come across a huge canyon in the cave! It’s gigantic! and it has a mix of waterfalls and lavafalls so it’s really cool! I wish I could find a way to screen cap it to show you, cause I was so proud to find it, I want to explore it, but it’s really intimidating!  I’m going to put pictures up later on, it might be screepcaps or it might be pictures I found around the internet. So far, the only complaint I have is it seems the game lags more and for longer periods of time, it’s understandable though, the terrain has more depth to it, with the deeper ground to bedrock distance and the raised cloudline there is a ton more to load. By the way, with the craters that mix water and lava there is a ton more of that black rock (Who’s name is escaping me right now) if you can get past the frustraition of the lag, then it’s really fun to explore~

Captain Hindsight! 9/4/11

Oh dear, I just read that post I did while on the sleeping pills… apparently I lose all ability to type coherently. It’s like when I’m on them I lose all inhibitions… once I took an online test for one of my classes while on them, thinking at the time “I got this” Though it wasn’t very hard and I got a %70 on it, which isn’t too bad considering the situation, I knew I could have done better, it’s official, when I take these things I need to shut off my computer and lock myself in my room and keep everyone away from me <.<

Anyway, the plan today is to go home and get some stuff together, I swear, I go home more now than I could ever imagine. My house isn’t too far from the campus, but I need to stay here. Pretty soon I’m going to do a couple movie reviews, and a survival guide to college.

Not to get off topic, whatever that is at this point, I had some really weird dreams last night. The first one was… like… I was getting married, I forgot that I was engaged to this guy that cheated on me and we needed to get married right there and right then, of course I didn’t tell him until just a few minutes before the actual ceremony, so it was really crazy and stressful, oh and my dress was ugly. I then had a dream that I was playing Minecraft… and there were Endermen everywhere!! I don’t know how many of you that play minecraft have heard about these things, but they truly sound frightening to me. In the dream, wherever I looked, they were there!! And in the game, if you put the crosshair pointer thing on them they just sit there and stare at you, then attack the minute you look away! It was terrifying! I’m definately not looking forward to the new update that puts them in there. I know they are a rare monster and I most likely won’t see them while playing the game, but the very thought that those creepy things are around the map somewhere just scared the shit out of me!
