In later versions of Minecraft they’ve significantly altered the way in which animals spawn in parts of the world. Now it’s important to breed animals if you want to have an unlimited supply without traveling too far. Here in this barn we always make sure to keep a minimum of two of the kinds of […]
There are multiple levels of cool represented in this screenshot. Most prominent is probably the sombrero jack-o-lantern made with a glowing pumpkin inside of a giant mushroom. There is also the new moon in the background. This is one of the later additions to Minecraft: moon phases.
Darryl made this awesome balcony/platform thing on top of the hill in which our main base is situated. On the left you see our “front yard” with the stone steps leading down to the reed farms and animal breeding zone. The stairs I’m standing on lead up to the mob spawner rooms.

The goal is to collect each of the 16 available colors of dye that are available in the game and put them on display as you see here. There are varying difficulties or versions of this quest concerning things like […]
Here Darryl’s just gone to bed but he’s made sure to wear armor and keep his sword handy. Look what’s just outside the window taking in interest in this humble abode’s inhabitants!
There’s a zombie… oh and 3 creepers.. and a skeleton in the distance. The bright side is the skeleton hasn’t noticed me yet. This was quite a risky screenshot to take with so much death and destruction closing in on me. It’s kind of a “where’s your god, now?” moment.
The new mechanics for firing the bow and arrow have changed the way we use this weapon. Before version 1.8 we could use it like a rapid fire device while now it’s much more rewarding to get a couple of carefully aimed shots in. You see in this screenshot I’m targeted right at the zombie’s […]
