Good morning, I hope you are all off to a great day. Today we say goodbye to Mondays Mean Minecraft and welcome a new series in its place, The Dig Report! As you may have noticed recently, we have been pumping out a lot more posts about Minecraft and because they are coming out at almost a daily rate, we just felt the old series title no longer matched up to what was actually happening. So with that said, let's dig into the report!
If you compare the above screenshot to prior days, you are going to notice that there is a huge chunk of the mountain that has been removed. I am planning to expand my starting area and to be honest, the mountain was simply in my way. Ultimately that area will be filled with buildings that will house the tools of our trade, various foods and meats, a smelting facility in order to produce various useful items, and even buildings that are meant to simply make the area begin to feel more like a town rather than a nicely built starting area.
One of the things I have learned from past builds is that I need to keep the builds smaller. This helps me stay focused on meeting smaller objectives versus building the massive sky scrapers and temples. Now that is not to say that eventually at some point I will not undertake such a project, but rather that for the short term, I want to simply have projects that will not carry on for more than a week at the most. As a point of reference, the above area that I have almost finished clearing, took around four hours to clear out over the course of the last couple days.
Well, my fellow miners, I believe that is going to wrap up this report. Make sure and keep your hard hats on when working in those mines or when at the build site. Stay safe and see you all next time!
