It is fun! I'm surprised how much XP you get from fishing. I'm exploring a lot more too. I found a Mesa, a dessert, two villages, a roofed forest and swampland. Still no jungle though. I want coco beans.

I had a very profitable day today. I went out to build a ruin.



Done! Decided then to go exploring. I found a really great cave system. Found lots of goodies including gold and diamonds. Got totally lost in the cave though and I had to dig my way up to the sunshine again. Turns out I was really close to my ranch and the village.

I've done some trading with the villages and now have the means to make an ender chest. This will make mining a lot better. Carrying an ender chest is like have a knapsack in your inventory. Makes for a lot more room to carry stuff. Just need to have a silk touch pick.

I've also been working on the mill. You can see an earlier picture up above somewhere. I need to harvest some tees and shear some sheep before I'll be able to finish.

@Fraternalhero I've never played it except on PC. I hope you get the controls worked out okay soon.

I spent a little time filling in my area with a few more houses. I took this picture from a bridge across a little bay at the end of the day. Love how the lighting turned out. I used jack-o-lanterns.



Here is another picture taken in the day time that includes the bridge and my house too.



Another one that includes a tunnel through the mountain on the right. I'm not totally happy with the bridge. I might modify it a bit some day.

I added another house to my little town. I also added some greenery.



I think next time I'll try and finish the mill.

I haven't posted here is awhile, this is a picture of my newest build. Behind the houses, I'm building a large building that will house my storage. This is the beginning.



Edit: Oh and I did finish the Mill.

Wow really cool builds.
Merry that building with the Dome is amazing! Cool

I play survival craft. I got minecraft recently but I have to get used to the controls. I like SC but It seems there is more out there for Minecraft.

I have some Questions for you guys.
Do you share your builds with others? Where do you get your inspiration?
Do you make your own textures?

I'm kind of new to creating things in these games. I was playing mostly survival mode and trying to build something nice while battling lions and bears LOL
But I started seeing some cool builds like these and it makes me want to start building. I don't really know what is possible in these games. I guess you start with something simple and blocky.

The only way to share builds in Minecraft is to share the world.
I don't make my textures. In minecraft they are called texture packs. You can find some at planetminecraft.com. You can check around the web too, but they are version sensitive, so be careful what you download.

I found the texture pack I use in the world with the dome bulld by watching a builder called Keralis on Youtube. He lists the texture pack he used with a link in his video. Others do the same if you like what they use.

In addition to Keralis, there are a couple of others that are great builders that I follow. One is BdoubleO100, aka Bdubs. He has a series called Building with BdoubleO. There are lots of others that have different styles. For instance, Keralis does mostly modern builds, while Bdubs does a lot of different styles. The Youtubers are where I get most of my inspiration. The water wheel on the Mill is from a video by Bdubs. I also watch the Mindcrackers. They are a group of Youtubers that play on a private while listed server. I follow and watch all of them as they build up the world. I got the idea for the newest building for storage from Nebris on that world.

I also like the challenge of building contraptions with redstone. You can check out the Minecraft Wiki for more info too.

I play in survival in Minecraft, but on peaceful mode. No monsters. If you like the challenge of the monsters there are three other modes... easy, normal and hard. I hope you have fun in Minecraft.
