So, no sooner do I mention getting close to bedrock, when I actually hit it. It's been a little more annoying than I would have thought though. I was expecting a nice even layer that I wouldn't be able to do anything with. Instead, there is stone mixed in, so I have to use creative mode to flatten the surface, and switch back to survivor mode to get the materials. I'm totally going to invest in auto mining on whatever my next project is. LOL On the bright side, I've managed to dig up around 30-someodd diamonds, so I have plenty to work with. I have gobs and gobs of red stone too. Once I'm really finished with the giant hole, I'm going to focus on more machines and such to automate the world. Someday I'll get to a more advanced version of Minecraft. LOL

It's Been Awhile

Indeed it has...but then, I haven't really been playing MC lately. Between being busy, lvling in WoW, and getting sick now and again, I've been away from my lovely digging. I have gotten quite far in my massive hole, though. I'm down to lava...which is a pain in the backside! I've been running around stopping lava flows the best I can. But at least I'm getting lots of red stone. I think once I actually hit bedrock on my giant hole, I'll switch to a newer version of MC, and start dinking around there. Those new versions keep coming out so quickly! Or maybe I'm just too slow.

I think I've conquered my fear of Ender Men. I still get goosebumps every time they scream at me, but I've been going after them with gusto. If I see one lurking around, I grab my sword and start swinging. I've managed a nice little collection of Ender Pearls too. MWAHAHAHAHA!! Maybe one day I'll figure how to get into the Ender Zone and start looking for that nasty old dragon I've heard so much about.

Silly Miner!

I decided I really needed to top up a bit more on my copper and coal (especially copper!). So, I started doing some random digging to try to increase these relatively surface-found items. I started digging a random hole through a mountain, which went a lot further than I would have expected, and didn't end where I thought it was going to. I got some copper and coal from it, but not nearly enough to satisfy my needs.

So, I started digging in another, not so random spot. I have a lava pit near my house where I toss my unnecessary materials...mostly cobblestone, dirt, gravel, and marble (I have a lot of all these things stored up in my Giant Storage Pyarmid of Doom(tm)). I wanted to see if there anything interesting near my surface lava pit, so I went back a little way, then started going down. Just as I hoped, I eventually hit a natural cavern! In I adventured, finding all kinds of things that were useful to me.

Then I ran out of space and decided I should probably head back up to get rid of some things and process what I had. I started back in the direction I came, only to realize I had messed up and cut off my way back up. Bugger. So, I started digging into the wall to try to find the main passage back.

I ran out of pick axes. Double bugger. Well, I was stuck and the best thing I knew to do was use some of my other tools (I carry a lot with me) to try to dig back up. After a bit, I didn't want to waste my tools on this, so I started pounding away with a block of marble. LOL

It was only after getting rather annoyed with the process and not finding my way, that I thought...well, why the heck am I not using creative mode? I switched to creative mode, and used a sword to cut my way back up. Whoot! I probably could have just flown back up, but with the new cut, I was able to get back down to where I was to get more materials, so that worked better. But sometimes I can be such a silly miner. I trust I'm not alone in my random foolishness. LOL

Welcome!

So, apparently I have a lot in common with the typical 10-year-old boy. I love Minecraft. This is pretty sad since I'm a gainfully employed 37-year-old woman. But I've come to accept my compulsion, and I continue to play the game that has found a way to suck me in. I was very disheartened to see there wasn't a Minecraft community on LJ, so I figured I would make one. I hope others will join me in my digging and building and generally relating life to the world of Minecraft.

This community is about all things Minecraft. I welcome all discussion of the game and adventures people are having. Building something cool? I want pictures! I'll be posting screen shots as I go along, and maybe if I get a decent following, I'll look into doing some live streams on Twitch.tv. For now, I have a giant hole that was once a mountain, a massive storage pyramid of doom, and a rather lame Tower of Bable. Of course, I also have my cozy little two story house and a rather large and empty factory. In addition, I have a road system that goes to the only village I've found so far, and my pyramid and factory. Life is beautiful.

So, come join me in the insanity that is Minecraft. I look forward to discussing my addiction with others. :-)
