Oy, has it been a week and a half on the Minecraft front. Well, not precisely a week and a half, it’s only been a week, but I was implying that it’s been a long… well you know what I mean ^_^ Anyhoo! Let’s see what’s changed.
First, the main world me and the Misses have been tinkerin on might actually go down for good in a week or two. Because of this the admin added a lot of random mods to the game just to see how they work, and so far, I’ve had a good time with them. The flying vehicle mod is fun, and caused accidental hilarity when I raised a look-out tower and the entire stone street that I did not know was connected to it. Good times.
The admin also added a mod called MCMMO or something close to that, which makes the game similar to an MMO. (I know, you just cannot hide from that genre anywhere anymore :P) But the changes I noticed were pretty good. For example, you start out as normal, but the more you mine the higher the chance you’ll get extra drops. You can even use a special ability and it can blow up additional blocks, growing in number the higher your skill is.
Of course that is fine and dandy, but I just hads-tuh check out the odd skill at the bottom. Acrobatics. I flashed back to every awesome video game MMO I ever though up and thought how cool it would be to jump from really high and land like a vampire from Underworld. 500 foot drop? Doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I’ll just keep on-a walkin’ like a bad arse, thanks.
This lead me to leap off the nearest high structure I could. Results?
That is to be expected, I suppose. Well, time to tinker! That mod also adds the ability to change your spawn point. So what did I do? Put it up at the tallest point nearby so I can jump off the side. Remember that phallic-looking pool a few Minecraft Monday’s ago?
Same village, though a little updated, and a slightly higher view than prior. I spent a lot of hours mindlessly imitating a Lemming and, well, here’s the tally for my efforts.
Is that an impressive assortment? Pitiful amounts of Unarmed, almost nothing in the rest, and over 250 in Acrobatics. Amazing. Even Nosey Spider agrees. To date the longest I have gone without dying was three jumps in a row, and I pulled that off back at like 150ish, so I should start landing four in a row soon. Either way, it was a nifty way to spend a day or so. I’d recommend those mods to any willing to give it a go! (MCMMO and the vehicle one, that I don’t know the name of. Sowwie.)
Another server bud made his own to replace our current one, and we’ve done quite a bit. Mostly just flattening out land, which is kinda boring >.> But I did sneak in some time to get some mining/base finding of my own in. Found this place not too far from spawn, but far enough for now. (Can always make another base later on.)
As snow does not fall and ‘regrow’ snow patches I made sure to make a sign stating that no torches be used. I’d like to keep the snow and ice where they be, thank ye’ kindly.
Inside looks nice, but I think I’ll have to take a shot on the Misses PC to get a nice panoramic fer ya’s. Now to email it over to me… there we go.
Just a bit of a nook under the frozen land above. Thought it looked nice. No idea what I’m doing with it in terms of actual usage, but I got a spot set out to mine to at least keep the work a-flowin’. Actually the entrance is in view now. It’s just hidden hee hee hee I think that’s one of my favorite aspects to Minecraft. Finding spots to hide things.
Yes, I know I’m odd. I said odd, not old. That’s the Miss’s adjective, not mine. (Expecting a slap after she investigates my giggle in three… two… )
