I hope you are all off to a great Thursday! In today's edition of Mondays Mean Minecraft, I wanted to share with everyone the beginning of what will become my first pit, or dig site one as I refer to it. Whenever I get into a new world, I like to get some very basic needs settled right away, shelter being the first, followed closely by food at second, and bringing up third place is the pit!
Now we all prefer to play our own ways, but I like to be able to go about my digging in peace and quiet. I don't want a random zombie or creeper falling on top of my head and ruining an otherwise glorious day filled of hauling dirt and rock. So naturally, I have to go find me enough sand to close off the entire top of the pit. Now an added bonus to this is that if I am on a server with a bunch of other players, then I will not have to worry about them falling to their death in what some may view as a giant random hole.
My in-game version of OCD comes out in that I like uniformity, so the walls have to be cobblestone, to give it that quarry kind of feel. While the area holding our glass up should be made out of wood that matches the surrounding buildings, which in this instance is the basic oak.
Once I get enough materials set aside, I plan to build myself a gigantic tower in order to get a better look around the area. Sadly, I have yet to really find any signs of a village, so I have not really started building a farm. I did come across a large group of sheep, so I may have to go and gather a few and bring back to start a mutton and wool farm. After all, I cannot live on bread alone... well, I guess I technically can, but I am sure my avatar would love a little variety in his life.
