I have seen a few skins and mods that adapt how it looks, makes it look a bit more realistic .. but I am an 8-bit girl, I love the nostalgic appearance of basic ‘out of the box’ Minecraft.
Not saying I dont apreciate the effort that goes into making that kind of mod, but its pure MC for me. pass me my MC hammer =P .. except it would be more like an MC Pick and he wasn’t a muso in the 80’s …
The first thing I did was shape my cave somewhat to make it a bit neater. Then found a better cave further up the hill. Then spent a few (gamedays) carving out the hillside between the two caves with my wooden spade. I was very proud of my first ‘stairway’.
This 2 cave hill became my home base. And in time, my first castle. Awwww
(After I hollowed it out and shaped it up and changed it completely :P)
I wish I had taken screenshots of my area before I started working on it.
The first wooden door I made thrilled me to bits. I was past ‘bricking myself in every night with dirt’, I had a real home, with a real door. I was Safe.
Whats that hissing sound?
Stupid creepers kept dropping down on me first thing in the morning. They would spawn on the hill side above my door and when I opened it all bright eyed and eager to begin my day …
I got so pissed off about my front door getting constantly blown to smithereens I /ragequit and stomped downstairs to complain (a perfectly acceptable procedure for dealing with game issues in this house).
Other Flatmate patiently listened to me bitching.
“Why don’t you build an overhang over your doorway?”
Quietly sidled back upstairs.
