Minecraft Blog #15 - Defenses

In my previous blog I mentioned we need to build more defenses after this IS a pvp server. Me and my friend decided we needed a simple but effective defense. Well if it's one thing which is effective against everyone in minecraft it's lava. We are going to build a canal around our castle and fill it with lava. Width is going to be probably 4 blocks depth will be 2 blocks. This will provide us with some defense after this we might install dispenser with arrows or fire charges in the wall.

Each time I go into the nether to farm I bring 20 buckets lava to fill 'em up and bring back to base. Meanwhile my friend will dig the canal and start filling it up. Soon this will be ready.



I'm also reaching the 2k views milestone and decided to do some pixelart for this I'd like you to come up with something I make them in creative mode so everything goes.
Hope to see some cool entries!!

Minecraft Blog #14 - Nether Portal Revised

In the process of rearranging our city we also decided we had to move the nether portal. We figured let's not just relocate it but let's add a cool feature to it. The final location turned out to be near the wall and with a cool redstone circuit which opens the 3x2 portal block by block. Here are two screenshots of the nether portal with the gate opened and clsoed.

Open



Closed


We still have a lot of space left in our city so if any of you have a good idea for a building or a useful construction please let me know.
Currently we have:

  • Mine
  • Storage
  • Nether Portal
  • Farm


I nearly reached 2000 views so soon I'm making another pixelart this time it will be a little bigger.
Maybe I will recreate a cool video game character or something =D

Minecraft Blog #13 - Golden Sheep Gone?!

We decided to wipe most of the city since the completion of our badass new wall. This includes the redstone lightboard and the golden sheep temple =(
Anyways we decided to put down some more functional buildings and to come up with a nice defence system for our walls, after all we are not alone in this PvP server.
We still haven't come up with any effective ones.
However we did finish the gate so only we can enter and leave as we please.

I upgraded the texture pack I was using some blocks were malfunctioning.
Still grinding on blazes to max axes combat skill as soon as possible. I did a test hit yesterday on a friend of mine. I got 6.5 Hearts with 1 hit =O 
The skill hits half a heart extra each 50 levels so this will do some serious damage on lvl 1000.

Here's and updated screenshot of our city at the moment.

Minecraft Blog #12 - Progress

I made some progress with my axe combat skill today. It's already 250 =O long way to go.
I also had 50 levels of exp in minecraft so I wanted to enchant some gear. Unfortunately gravity got me and I died while returning to home. Ah well the minecraft exp wasn't that hard to get anyways.
Today I plan to reach either 275 or 300 with axe skill. I'm already seeing some improvements.
For more info on axe skill with the plugin McMMO check this link.

It's not completely up to date but hey the main thing are in there.
Here's a screenshot of me bashing some Blazes.\


Oh! I forgot to mention I switched to a new texture pack it's called SMP Revival.
Anyways I will keep you up to date on how my grinding is going.

Minecraft Blog #11 - Leveling

I talked a little about the skills available in the plugin we have on the server last time. Recently I started leveling my axe skill (combat). I'm trying to do 25 or so levels each time I get online, this way I will reach lvl 1000 pretty rapidly. Level 1000 is god mode basicly. I made a mistake in my calculations but on lvl 1000 with axe you hit 21 hearts damage. Which IS instakill with most armors.
I don't have much plans for other skills at the moment axes is my main priority after that maybe a gathering skill like excavation (shovel). I don't have much related footage for this blog but I made a nice screenshot with a modded version of the minecraft client called Spoutcraft.
Here it is.

Minecraft Blog #9 - Construction

The construction of the wall is nearly done we've got the main outlines done and some exterior finished.
At the moment we are still designing the inner parts of the wall and how we are going to arrange the town inside the walls. Here are some pictures

The gate and some exterior work.



A chamber in the wall itself. (One of many and they all need remodelling.)



The town within the walls except it's not arranged properly yet.



Next up in my blog.
A 1000 view appreciation pixel art =D I still haven't decided what to make but I'll improvise some stuff.
