Minecraft – Dome

Here is a picture of the dome as it was being built.  This was taken at night so I apologize if you can’t see much.  I originally built the dome out of dirt as a frame to make sure it looked right as I was capping the dome and then replaced the dirt with glass and iron blocks.

Minecrafting again

Looks like Notch finally implemented the Nether into this update which is now beta 1.6, yay for updates.

However it also looks like a lot of bugs have crept out with this update but hey its beta what can you expect but bugs?

The nice thing is it means I will be minecrafting again, and yes I know made up word but hey what else can you call it right? Been getting back into Minecraft again lately since more people have been playing it on my friend’s server.  The development of my Bio-dome is slowly progressing again nicely.  However I think I will have to put it on hold as I must redo and look for gold in order to make power tracks as with this update booster minecarts are now broken.  Have to make some kind of transportation system to get to the bio-dome from the spawn point or my previous base of operations.

Anyways just small updates in the world of Minecraft.  Maybe I will post pictures of the ongoing construction or something as times goes by.


Minecraft Update

Sooo Minecraft….took a break from that fun game. It’s fun with multiplayer and was fun as single player but its lost its edge since its more of a time killer then anything else.  The game itself still fun to build awesome looking buildings or other neat stuff.  I mean building a rail road station or having a timer/calculator being made is neat.  But can only last for so long when you got other competitive multiplayer games out on the market.  Anyways onto the Minecraft updates since I am done ranting about my opinion about this game.  Minecraft creator Notch is planning on adding Wolves to his Beta 1.4 update. Which after watching the video on his tumblr site looks awesome.  Wolves can be tamed and used as attack hounds which sounds pretty awesome to me for those pesky creepers and zombies out at night.

 

Now as for the multiplayer side of things on the server my friends and I play on.  We have a lot going on there with plenty of buildings and mods being implemented by my friend who runs the server.  Currently using a mod that allows us to enter the nether and enter our old creative world alongside our survival multiplayer world.  All in all pretty neat and awesome mod specially since Notch still hasn’t released the Nether for multiplayer yet.  Buildings on our server are progressing well aside from the occasional death, attacks, and creeper explosions.  My friends and I all have some pretty sweet looking bases created.  3 story tower, a huge castle, dome in progress, pyramid, gardens, mob spawners, rail road roller coaster ride transportation, lava and cactus defense walls.  All in all a pretty good base in this survival world for multiplayer.  Even got some Nether portals and star gates. Yes that’s right folks star gates like from the show 🙂 hehe.

 

This was all done over the course of around 6-8 months though. So not all too surprising but nonetheless a cool feat achieved by those of us with jobs and those without combined.  Anyways that’s all for now on the Minecraft front, and until the passion and fun factor for Minecraft returns for me my bio-dome city and the Minecraft updates will probably be on halt for awhile. In the meantime look forward to more League of Legends updates and reviews as more champions are released and older ones come into play from updates/remakes.  Older champions will most likely get a review rating by me as well in the near future but going through 70 something odd champions will take time.
