I’ve never built an enormous castle in minecraft before, but yesterday I decided why not. The one pictured above took most of the day off and on to build, but I adore it. It’s enormous, 33×33 tiles, and probably more than 33 tiles high. It looks out over my property, and right now it’s completely empty but I hope to work on that slowly over time. Right now there’s no way to get to any of the higher floors, something else I’ll need to work on. I have absolutely no idea what to do with the space, but I’ll no doubt think of something.
A new machine has also made its way onto the property. It creates cobblestone, which is fantastic. Basically automating the action of lava and water combining (which creates cobblestone) the machine then harvests and stores it. Apparently this will be used to create some portal that requires a lot of cobblestone, and then a quarry can be set up in the realm that the portal opens to. I don’t remember all of the details, but the friend who is playing on server with me explained it yesterday. I’m personally looking forward to doing much less mining and much more exploring. Especially because this map is really annoying to navigate under ground. It seems like every step or two I’m faced with pools of lava and water, making mining precarious and not much fun. I’m constantly mining away from these enormous caverns filled with danger, but it makes for crooked hallways and I get lost easily.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever built in Minecraft before? How long did it take you to complete? Let me know in comments below!
