Coming Together

Today's activity update starts with some home improvement. I've wanted to put some flower pots in the bedroom, but only now got to it. I may have to use these more often, because they are rather nice looking.

Getting in and out of the spawner complex was a rather tricky trot through a cave complex. I crafted up a bunch of ladders and made a simpler entrance/exit. I still need to design the aboveground part of it. It is on the border of a swamp and a rather hilly snow biome.

Then it was time for the enchantery. It's so much more convenient to have it in the spawner complex than at home. I disassembled the stuff from the roof and established a small room for it.

It's a relatively simple design, but I don't see many other ways to augment it. Perhaps put a couple chests in there to store enchanted books and tools. The dirt is a placeholder until I get more bookshelves. I might just raid Polis Youssarianis and get the books from there. Either that or I need to start a cow farm. The leather will do me good, and I'll probably need it anyway to enchant books.

At this point I arrive at a bit of a choke point. Comparators need to be crafted with Nether quartz. And it'd also be nice to have glowstone for lighting the room instead of jack o'lanterns. Oh, and part of my Minecraft Experience project is visiting the Nether. I'm actually rather concerned about going to the Nether. The game gets rather slow and laggy when I hop in the Nether. Nonetheless all the goodies are in there. This portal awaits my entrance...

And when I get there, this pickaxe will let me get a good haul.

Friend's Private Server

I have been rather inactive on the server lately. Just not much motivation to keep working on the roundhouse. I may just pack my things and go elsewhere. I want to make a skybase. The idea of a server Nether hub has been discarded. I still want to make something that is easy accessible to all and that people can go to for supplies (akin to Pakratt0013's house on the Mindcrack server).
