Ok, decided to venture into the nether. AAAAAANNNNNDDDD....
Ended up in the spawn town portal when I took my own. Saw morrath's message, got 11 diamonds, dropped them off in my own chest. Used the coordinates trick to try to build my own portal, was ambused by a ghast that spawned in my face, I panicked and accidentally punched his fireball at him, killing him, and collecting a ghast tear. As I tried to secure my nether base, I was attacked by a gaggle of ghasts, fell into the lava ocean, and survived by abusing the 1 second invurn when you log in. By then I had to kill off a pair of blaze using a knockback sword (only one I had, and it doesn't work well against ranged units...), and accidentally flooded it with lava.
Then I took my portal and realized I miscounted and ended up in the middle of nowhere. Yay.
First Nether trip complete. Gack.

REturned back, portal failed again when I moved it. Turns out I have to build it floating over the lava lake. Then lag pushed me into lava again. I give up. I only lose a diamond pickaxe, double set of iron tools, set of iron armor, and 6 levels... sad

Is it just me, or does seed seem kinda bad? Don't even have any good set of slime chunks near me at all.

Hmm...

I set the seed to "kurathedog", so it should be okay.

tongue. The seed is visible when you press F3. It's more that the map hates me.

Conquered a blaze spawner. Did the math, and it turns out that the area under it is good for making my netherside portal (to avoid bad linking). Now to build an automatic farm...
Hmmm, how does hte image uploading work? I chose an image under image upload, how do you put it in the post?

Strange, can't edit my posts from my laptop, it seems. Still not sure how to use the Image upload feature.

Making progress on the spawner. Brought in normal stone brick to make it look nicer, and because I dont' want to have to mine all the nether brick necessary.

Also, looks like Morrath only had 3 chests, since I just saw the one storm had raided already. Very adminy. Water from the ceiling, gold blocks, glowstone, bookshelves, green wool, vines? Free vines! Needed those.

Also, forgot to mention I walked off the fortress after shutting down the blaze spawner, invurn-abused until I was out of the lava, and burned to death, then recovered my items because the nether chunks were unloaded and my stuff didn't despawn.

Nice! I thought my 11 diamonds from 2 chests was good.
Then again, I took all the gold blocks from the room your raided. big_smile Completely useless, but now I have a masssive supply of watches. big_smile

Also, anyone know how big the fortress is? Durpled lives far away and also has his portal near "a" fortress. Question: Are they the same one? And can we connect them?

Are you coming out a different portal in the nether? Or a different one in the overworld?

Right, I guess they're a bit too easy to find at the minute! I'll make them a lot more sparse and have less rewards in them, Hm.


If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask me. I'll try my best to help you out.

Yay for treasure

Spawner progress going great so far. Will upload images once I find time to re-size them. Now I just need to implement obnoxious circuitry... 500 repeaters, go! Also gives me a reason to hate the quasiconnectivity bug for a change.

It would be nice if the image upload thing said the image was the right size or not. Kinda stinks how my screen is bigger than 1280x1024. Guess I can always take screenshots in windowed mode...

Alright, blaze spawner nearly done.
I would like large donations of nether brick so  I don't have to tear donw parts of the fortress, and so I can hide the redstone from the ghasts.
Might also add an alchemy room nearby in the nether. You can actually do all teh potions in the nether by putting water in cauldrons.
