What did you have for diamond tools?
Just a pick axe and a shovel, it's more of everything else in my inventory, like a stack of gold. It's nbd. I'm just complaining. Shit happens, I just wasn't prepared for it.
Fortune III picks has made diamonds realtively abundant for us. I don't mine diamonds unless a) I have a fortune III pick and b) I'm going straight to the vault to deposit it. I never carry valuables with me for long.
By the way, if you die after teleporting due to falling through, usually your stuff will be on the floors below.
Enchanted at all?
There isn't a whole lot directly under prime, I thought.
I honestly haven't gotten to enchanting much of anything yet. I just started making some books so I can work on that. I need to find some cows to breed. I have quite the stockpile of sheep already.
Shouldn't be unless there's natural caves. Prime is the deepest man-made structure there.
I'll put a diamond pick and shovel in one of the locked chests under the vault at Ghast's Tear you can have.
Thank you for your generosity, you really didn't have to.
Someone sent me another donation, but I'm ashamed to say that I don't recognize the name, so I can't put the person's real name with their screenname/minecraft name. So speak up whoever you are! Or if you prefer to remain anonymous PM me.
I have a better idea: just move the warp point up to the main floor again. That way if you do fall, it is more likely to end up on one of the floors below. Although since 1.3, I haven't had a problem with that. So this is strange in the first place.
It was odd because my client was lagging rather significantly when it happened, it took a good few second for the warp to actually happen, which is why I couldn't warp out of the ground fast enough.
Yeah, so that's about the best I can do. I'll move it now.
Started work on the Great Pyramid of Giza:
I learned something new today: the pyramids were based on an equalateral triangle (60 60 60 degrees), not an isoceles triangle (45 90 45 degrees). This means you won't be able to run up the exterior of it. In fact, you'll only be able to run up two blocks.
Much, much sand (to level the area) and sandstone (for the structure) will be required.
My god, that's going to be HUGE!
It is 1:1 Great Pyramid of Giza (Kuufu).
It puts into perspective how big it is and how low the Minecraft height limit is. XD
All to bury one man and his wife. Makes you wonder...
Well, I am Peter and the other guy is a mistery to me as well. My don was 10ish in USD. I am not fully sure whether I actually was the first donator whose money arrived, because there was no money on my PP account so it still had to come from my bank account. So unless PP transferred the money to your account in advance there may have been a delay.
That location is excellent, the pyr will visible from afar when taking the (rail) road near it. And TBH I am surprised that you expected an isoceles triangle to be the "base" of the pyr design. An isoceles triangle would be to steep for the shape to be as it is IRL.
After searching far and wide, I've found that there is a serious lack of cows near the Cape and Kard, so I've traveled a very far way to get a pair of cows just to bring back to the Cape (took me an Hour ) but now I have a cow farm and I'm going to begin breeding cows to offset the shortage of cows in the area. All I ask is if you kill some for leather, do not kill all of them or I will be a very unhappy person.
Otherwise... cows for everyone!
Edit: ...and on the other side there are sheep for everyone too!
Well, I have enough cows in my castle farm for now TBH. There are plenty feral cows in my snow biome too so I guess you got yours there? Oh, your cows may escape in case of lag (ending up at the wrong side of the fence).
I didn't, actually that was further away. I went out on an expedition looking for cows instead. I'll eventually re-vamp the cow farm with walls and such but I suspect that I'm going to make it bigger so I'm going to wait and see how it goes.
Newtekie1 and I both chose to make pits with grass in them. Cows don't tend to be as jumpy as chickens and sheep so you may be good as you are (else 3 layers deep pits should work, 5 or more for sheep and chickens).
I decided to expand and upgrade my cow farm.
I figured it out, it was -KarL-. Your donation was actually over $15 USD by the time the conversion was done. Yay for the weak USD!
Panic Room now applies 5 effects (including healing).
Lol, the PayPal conversion calculator gave me a lower number (ten-ish as stated) because of the extra fees PP normally asks. I selected "gift" though and selected "pay costs" so that is most likely the reason it has been more in USD than the site initailly indicated (the ratio between EUR:USD is roughly 2:2.5).
@Ford: Looks well on the night-version of dynmap
Hence my selection of lava. XD
I spy a Minecraft update with a ton of bug fixes.
The update will make sure that Ford and I can make our (experimental) tater farm in Hutton, starting with one (1) potato that Ford got from a zombie. Hopefully the zomtato will bring forth a strong potato race that is resitant enough to diseases and the cold of Hutton and Winterfell, so that the yields will be large. If the experimental field has proven succesful, Ford will begin a piston farm near Kard with (a part of) the yield while I will make another (large) field/greenhouse in Eastern Winterfell (where I built the granary and all those greenhouses).
If anyone foinds some 'rots please let me know.
