Minecraft just recently added a new update, and I figured I would start a new game to get the fresh experience with the changes. Wolves are a non-aggressive pet that can be tamed, beds now act as spawn points and small tweaks have been made to prepare for achievements. Minecraft is a game of new beginnings - sometimes a playthrough gets boring, and starting anew is a great way to reinvent interest.
Beds are incredibly easy to make. Three pieces of wool and three planks. That's it. Both sheep and trees are in abundance, and just walking away from the spawn point for a few minutes you're bound to run into tons. I did, but wanted to find an area high up in the clouds overlooking a canyon. The perfect area to inhabit is hard to find, so I had the bright idea of taking after a good friend of mine and taking matters into my own hands. Violently flailing away at dirt for a good hour, I had sixteen stacks. And it was now time. Time to make my own support.
I built a column straight up, five by five blocks, until I could taste the clouds. Then I expanded outward, plopped the essentials in their respective corners, made some windows and took the time to enjoy the view. It's weird to have clouds glitch through the walls (what should be fixed) because I almost fell to my death. Luckily I elevated my bed so my spawn point is in my house, and not outside. It'd be unfortunate to spawn and die over and over again. As I slept for the night, I quit the game and took a nap (in real life). Minecraft is so realistic that it made me tired in real life. After sitting down for two hours I was creatively exhausted. My brain actually hurt.
Expect part nine tomorrow. I may be taking part in a multiplayer server! Ciao!
