Back to Minecraft

After an extended absence, I’ve played Minecraft again. Started a multiplayer server, was on it for a few hours last night with Tensing. Was weird to realise I wasn’t shooting virtual people in the virtual face, cos I’ve been playing Black Ops constantly. Things to note about my slight return: Zombies. They still be cunts. […]

Mapcraft 2 – The Embiggening

I’ve had a couple of blog posts in my head for a while now, and I am promising myself that I will actually type them up at some point. Until then, the awesome filler that is…. MINECRAFT ESCAPADES! Here’s the new map. Looks a bit different to the old one cos the Cartograph program has […]

Mapcraft

Fucking look at this! It is fucking amazing. Thanks to the powers of Cartograph, this is a (vastly cut down) annotated piccy of my current Minecraft world. It’s vastly cut down cos I went exploring in a boat a while back and the map is now huge but I’ve only made stuff on a small […]

Minecraft – part 3

Bad news. The game crashed, and it deleted a quarter of my beloved castle. Good news! I rebuilt most of it. Bad news. There’s a section of moat which I can’t ever rebuild; every time I try, I reload the game and it’s gone. Good news! Fuck moats. It’s a wall, with a rollercoaster track […]

Construction is taken from Lego (I’m sure there’s other […]

From now on. Woot! This is also a reminder for me to see what Tom wrote in the water, cos he did amusing stuff last night […]

Minecraft part 2

Last time round, I said I was going to show you the mining part. One thing about Minecraft – just playing around in it gives you ideas on what to do next. I loaded it up with the intention of doing screenshots of the caves, but then I thought that my house was looking a […]

Minecraft

I was going to do a big thing on Minecraft, about how it’s definitely a game, but it also encourages creativity within the game space like nothing I’ve ever seen, and I was going to add all sorts of buzz words that I would make up to sound like I know what I’m talking about […]
