We’ve seen the flag before but this time a stupid zombie has decided to hang out on top of it. To the bottom left you can see our wool colors collection which (spoiler) has burned down since, and the mob spawner on the far left with the arches under construction.
Darryl, Nathalie and I have been very busy in our multiplayer world. We’ve collected all the colors of wool in Minecraft, built a giant Dutch flag and a large dark room for baddies to spawn with a whole in the center for them to fall out.
Giant mushrooms are a pretty cool addition to Minecraft. It’s an alternative to traditional farming and they really help to mark the landscape. Besides a rumored secret mushroom biome, they are not naturally occurring. To grow a giant mushroom of either type you just need to bonemeal a small one.
My home base in my single player survival world is now completely surrounded by a wall to keep bad guys out. I make sure that the inside is lit up sufficiently so that no bad mobs spawn inside my safe zone. The structure in the middle is my lava pillar beacon tower so I can […]
To the left you can see my main home base with a massive lava pillar on the roof serving as a beacon. Down the middle is a wall that will keep the bad guys out. The glass along the edges keep spiders from crawling up will minimizing the hindrance to my visibility. This wall wraps […]

This light beacon is very easy and economical to make. Lava is a good light source and can be seen from quite far away. To start you need make sure the bottom has a little pool so that the lava won’t overflow over the rest of your structure. Then build a one block pillar up […]
This screenshot is taken from the top of the beacon tower looking out over Pig Field with all the torches lighting it up at night. In the center you can see the creeper face with some torches in his eyes for effect. The portal to the nether is located to the left and on the […]
We’re standing on the end of the pier looking out toward our beacon tower with next to it Darryl on a pillar of gravel trying to get a bird’s eye view of his construction projects. Behind me he’s in the middle of building himself a pirate ship. Off to the left you can see the […]
Standing on a temporary platform this gives you a nice view of the constructions that Darryl and I have put up in our multi-player world. The pier extends out into the water with an under-construction pirate ship on the end. The beacon tower extends as high as the game allows you to build. In the […]
