Looking through my stats, it seems Minecraft's still my most popular post. Not sure how I feel about that. I'd like something more intellectual. But ah well. Minecraft is a fun game and with the varrious updates lately. With the adventure update, I've... had something to talk about.
I started a new map, intially trying to run it under my castle run rules, but it quickly became evident that wouldn't be feasible immediately.
|Behold, the Glitch Lands|
|The grass I added in hopes of spawning animals, It doesn't work.|
|This is VAUGELY what the area should look like.|
|Tower Home, and Tower Hydroponics|
|The top floor of Tower Home|
|The bottom floor of home, and the stairs|
This led to real fun with food, considering the run. I lived on raiding the unoccupied town nearby's broken farms, until I could start my own tower after the home was secure. I'm quite happy with it, it's running water works flawlessly, looks pretty and eventually will be integrated with the mushroom farm in progress to deliver them from their dark environment without issue of monsters, plus it collects loose items from the three farms to recollect in one area.
|Tower Hydroponics Wheat floor|
|Eventually this will be the Bumpkin and Melon farms|
|Caves that use water instead of walls|
|Magic lava that is unaffected by water|
|And this has to be my favorite, even if it's a few seconds late. When the sun rises, the first point it becomes visible is a hole in the mountains only visible from the top of my home.|
So! Its an abstract thing, but happens now and then, and I want to ask, has a glitch ever affected a game you play in a horrible way, but eventually grown on you? Please leave a comment as I'm very curious.
Also for reference, the texture pack I'm using is PureDBcraft, it's got parts I'd like to replace, but I like the general style of it. Most texture packs mess up in some way and this gets the most things right. Especially glass and natural textures. Its a shame that stone, cobblestone and stone brick is so indistinguishable.
