Um. So. Yeah. Last weekend, I might have become a (temporary stand-in replacement) admin on a minecraft server… I swear I have no idea how that happened!
I was in IRC asking something about Minecraft adventure maps, and something I said prompted another guy to invite me to his multiplayer server. Might it have been the “I don’t like griefing” part? ;) Nobody else was playing, which was fine by me. I just ran around and played the first in-game week of Survival, expecting that the server would be reset soon anyway. I set myself the goal to build a modern-looking house inside a mountain cave with glass facades that use all dyes.
The server seemed to have only a handful users. Later, the owner logged on, talked to me a bit, saw my house, and declared me server admin. Um, okay? :D I’ll totally try that at work next week: “Hi!” — “Hi.” — “This is my minecraft house.” — “INSTANT PROMOTION TO SENIOR VP BOSS, DUDE!!1!1” — “Really?” — “NO.” — *sadface*
After you have explored and looted everything, the next level of Minecraft addiction has been reached, when you start refilling treasure chests, and building fossils and fortresses with hidden passages, for other Survival players to explore.
Part of a crazy fun 2-player village building session in Creative. If you have built a house as crooked as a crashed Warbird, simply attach a sign saying “Embassy of the Romulan Star Empire”, et voila! In other news, we built a huge library. Out of bookshelves. *brain explodes*
So, I died fighting this skeleton, right? And I respawned and tried to get my inventory back, and a zombie picked up a creeper head, and wore it on his head, and then he got caught in the skele’s friendly fire, and turned against the skele, armed with nothing but a piece of dirt, but then the skele picked up my enchanted bow, and… ugh. Just another day in Minecraftia. X)
Another player built this automatic wheat farm in Survival, and I helped plant the seeds. After the wheat has grown, you pull a lever, which releases water, that flushes the wheat into chests at the bottom of the farm. The second half of automation is finding a wuss to plant seeds for you. … … Hold on a second!? ;-)
