Minecraft Diary: Day 2 - Part 1
Day 2 - Part 1
I have dusted off my work clothes and gone out mining again. Or rather, I have started to play Minecraft again - carrying on in the same world as before.
I have built a nice enough mineshaft. The problem is of course, you never really know what you will find. You hope to find bits of everything you need. You know you will find monsters.
How does your garden grow?
Well, without water, things take longer. It is best to just forget about the "fields" and then come back in a week or so - minecraft time - and see how things are going.
As I said before, I really need to find some iron. All I seem to keep finding at the moment is coal, lots and lots of coal.
Down, down, down we go....
I am somewhat paranoid about the depth of the shaft I have created. Whenever I step backwards I always fear that I will fall and die. This doesn't mean it is game over. It just means that I am respawned again. This is always in the same place and always outside, day or night.
What is lurking in the dark?
I hope to find some iron. I wish there was some sort of map or theory as to where it is. I have heard that is is nearly always right below or right above coal. I will have to try out that theory.
Lots of coal..
This is getting a little annoying now. I have more coal than I know what to do with. If I had iron on this scale I could build armor and the exploration of underground caves what not be so deadly.
At least when it comes to building a furnace, I will have enough coal! - pretty pointless though as I could use wood which is everywhere..
Building on mass
Well, I am tired of having to do the same thing over and over. I have enough resources to build many things and store them in my chest in case I was to die.
Many torches and many pickaxes will be made. I also do not like the idea of falling and losing all my tools I have just made only to have to do it all again..
They call me: Nostradamus
They don't really but I had an inkling that something like this was going to happen. I "fell" down the shaft. I am not too sure what happened but I guess my guy thought it would be quicker to just jump.. Quicker to the grave!
Improvement = speed
After coming back down the shaft after the re-spawn, I figured that it would be a wise move to make entering and leaving the shaft easier. It is quite important if you are being pursued by a monster or three and have you pockets loaded with goodies. I figured, the day I finally find iron, and plenty of it, that will be the day when many monster turn up and my poor building leads me to die.
