Everyone knows what happens on Mondays, right? Here at Holy Shock, Minecraft happens every Monday. Actually, it happens just about every day; however, Mondays are the designated day for talking about Minecraft. As I briefly mentioned last Tuesday, this series was one that I had done for a very brief time over on my YouTube channel. The thing with YouTube is that it takes an enormous amount of time to actually create content and with my time being so limited at the moment, I just felt that the renewal of the series would fit better here at the site. Perhaps in the future we will add in streaming Minecraft on Monday, but that will require us to do some computer upgrades.
My single player game started me in quite an odd area. It actually had three different biomes meeting. The first biome is just the wooded hillside with the spruce trees. The second biome was the more swamp type biome with the vines growing off the trees. The third biome was one that I had actually never really come across and it is one where there are really large dark oak trees growing and mixed in among them are the giant mushrooms. You can see a red one in one of the screenshots from above.
As a rule of survival, whenever I start a new world, I focus on creating pens for animals and creating areas to grow wheat and trees. The first three images above are of my cow and sheep pens, and then also a broad shot of where I grow my trees and also wheat. I haven't put a ton of effort into creating a house just yet, but I do have plans later on down the line. The fourth image is of my covered quarry and Miner's Guild hall. I will share more of those once I finish them off completely. In the distance was a huge mountain, but as I am known for doing, I have already begun tearing it down. In its place, I intend to build a giant temple with Nether portals at the top.
I had originally not intended to build this so soon, but I need to be able to get the nether quarts in order to begin construction of another project I have slated to go in next to the Miner's Guild hall. It may take quite some time to complete both of these projects, so look for more information about them in future posts.
Well, I know it is not the most exciting post, but when you spend four to six hours in a day just digging... excitement is not always there. If you have any recommendations or thoughts on what I should build next, then please feel free to leave them in the comments section. See you all next time!
