You can see where the other track goes now. The dam is finished as are two artificial lakes that I had to dig out. I'm not thrilled with how the tower or the bridge look, but they're not bad for first tries. The base so far has a big open library with a reading room. There's more stuff up inside the cliffs, but it's not finished. Thanks to minecraftaddict for showing me how to get the double doors to work right - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1x6g6q... Texture pack for those asking is http://www.retributiongames.com/quand... Minecart setup is based on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0v5cAF...Pretty sweet stuff, so far, yes? Well, here is the second awesome video.
Pretty cool, huh? I just figure this guy deserved some recognition. Sure, it's not some mega object, but things like these are pretty awesome in my book.
I didn't mine the obsidian for the master bedroom. I filled the floor with lava and then dumped water on it. It's so much faster. I'm really happy with the way that whole section looks, especially the deck.I show probably 1% of the mine/cavern at the end of the video. I've pulled over 100 diamonds and easily 1000 iron out of there so far and there's still a few places I haven't explored. Since I know the question is going to be asked, yes I spent 1 billion hours doing this. Actually, I've been sick and haven't been able to go out so I've been playing a lot the last 3 days (probably 7-8 hours a day in between napping and sneezing). This is my 3rd try uploading this since youtube keeps killing the audio. This track is from remix.nin.com so if it gets nixed I can be sure that youtube is just doing it to spite me. There's zero copyright issue. If you want to watch it the way I had it originally, mute the audio and throw on Rain Song by Zeppelin. It's a perfect minecraft song.
