  • Elsewhere: Rethinking Everything

    I’ve spent the last few days looking at my spot in the new creative world, trying envision it.  I’ve got some vague ideas, but something dawned on me.  I’m thinking small again.  Part of what I want to do in this new world is build on a much larger scale than what I’ve done in Alpha.  So far, I’m planning things out in my head very similarly to Alpha.  I’m thinking inside the box, and not thinking grand enough 🙁

    The picture above is of the Agrazahn Catacombs, one of the grandest things I’ve built in Alpha.  I need to start thinking more like this for the new world.

    I think I need to explore some more… look for a better spot.  I feel like the spot I’ve chosen isn’t much different in size than my larger cities in Alpha, and I don’t wanna do the same thing over again!

    I guess its back to the drawing board for now.

  • Elsewhere: Planning Stages

    I’ve started some vague planning on my next creative project in Minecraft!  I’ve setup a new large-biome world in 1.14, and I’ve been scouting out the perfect location for a week or so now.

    My overall plan is to build a city-state, with a castle, walled city, smaller town, and villages/farms.  The big difference is I want to build GRANDER.

    Most things in Alpha are pretty small, as I began it all years ago before I really perfected my building styles.  Last year I built the Catacombs beneath Agrazahn, and it was so much grander than everything else!  I want to build more like that.

    This new world is also going to be less restricted than Alpha.  Alpha was limited to medieval/fantasy – no spaceships, etc.  The new world has no restrictions like that, but one simple limitation. Everyone who builds there has to build only ONE place.  Once its finished, they can go build something else.  I just don’t want it to end up like Alpha with dozens of half-built abandoned projects.

    Anyways, I’ve been scouting.  I believe I’ve settled on my location….  Not 100% sure but getting there. Its a nice sized area along a coastline bordered by a dense mushroom forest.

  • The Money Bin

    My big project is finally finished!  Back in the middle of July, I undertook my first large-scale project in Demonreach. I built Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin!

    It has also become the public storage facility for the spoils of our Gold Farm, and for other assorted valuables 🙂

    Special Thanks to Perry for working on the new mountainside!!

  • Demonreach Update

    Its been awhile since I showed off our survival village in Minecraft, so here we go!

    Demonreach Village is the main location on our 1.14 survival world, also named Demonreach.  It started out as a naturally generated village, right near the spawn point.  Early on, we planned to mark out the spawn chunks to use for building farms that would always be running, so we settled into the village nearby.

    The village has gone through quite a few changes and upgrades over the last few months.  We currently have several public buildings that house stuff available for anyone on the server to use.  These include a General Store, Tavern, Blacksmith Shop, Meetinghouse, Post Office, Schoolhouse, Library, and Apothecary.  We also have public farms for every growable type of crop, as well as several mob farms.  We’ve been through 3.5 Iron Farms so far, as updates keep breaking the villager mechanics that make it run.  Perry just recently finished our most advanced farm yet: a pigman gold farm built at world height above the nether.

  • That Pesky SimCity Itch

    I’ve been watching some Cities: Skylines videos tonight, and the “itch” is calling to me.  This spring I got the last two DLCs (Park Life & Industries), but I haven’t even played them yet.

    I’m watching videos of the newest DLC, Campus, and I really like it.  I think I may need to get Campus, and play the three new DLCs.

    Its been QUITE a while since I’ve played.

  • L’Orchestre de Jeux Video

    I bought some new speakers today for my birthday, and I’m listening to some music on YouTube.

    If you’ve never heard of L’Orchestre de Jeux Video (Video Game Orchestra), check them out!

    This is my favorite video of theirs, as Mario RPG is one my all-time favorite games.

  • Demonreach Village

    We started Demonreach about a month ago, and we’ve been quite busy.  I finally decided to take a moment and take some pictures of our little community we have going.

    Most of us settled down near a village near the spawn point, and we aptly named it Demonreach Village.  Perry and I are right in the village, with Lee and Chris right nearby.  Nick settled down near the spawn point, and Chas and Mike ventured even further.
