I have found 2 secrets, started work on the one involving a single lava source (the secret one, which reminds me, OP, you need to remove some of your "work" near that. You left some cobblestone stairs, which scared the crap out of me). I also plan to tackle the hidden spawner soon, doing as it states. I've also completely moved my base underground, were I found my first vein of coal for torches. I was rather displeased when I found coal under one of the steps down into my labyrinth that leads to my base. I'm also working on mapping out my island better to bring grass down for aesthetics, animals, and seeds.
Im giving it a try and so far not starting out to well,
the tree gave me 1 sapling and I couldnt find coal (guess im not looking in the right places)
and I am currently standing in my pitch black 1 square shelter waiting for night to pass
extended my house
figured out what was meant by the x and found coal
but my single sapling hasn't grown yet and I'm running low on wood supplies, only got 3 sticks
I've updated the original post to provide some more clarification on the explanations of the 2 island modes. I also updated 1.1 to clear it up a bit. removed all the signs and put the challenge list in the original post instead.
This will probably be my last update for a while so that I can start working on version 2. I apologize for another update, (1.1), but I'm using your suggestions to try and make it better .
All I really did during day 1 was gather resources and built a temporary shanty house that I could live in for the night. Sadly, though, I don't have ANY light source so I guess I will be camping in a 2-person space tonight. :tongue.gif:
I really had fun with this :biggrin.gif: Though I didnt focus much on the written goals, i did manage to discover all of the secrets. I especially enjoyed the lost treasure of the curater. Keep it up,I cant wait for v2 :biggrin.gif:
Tip to people just starting: there is one tree. Make sure to gather all the saplings and quickly make a tree farm or else you're severely limited. Also build a wheat farm, until you plant grass there is no other means of food.
I have located the cactus! Although I didn't find a legit cactus planted, but rather somewhere else >.>
I have not located the reed, but I suspect it is buried in the same style as the cactus.
My skelly trap is built! Although it isn't drowning them, so I'm going to have to troubleshoot and see what's up.
Looks very fun, I had alot of fun with Wookies survival island.
Thanks for another island for me to plunder! Yarr!
I already discussed a 2 island map with wookie, he should be making it now but it's been awhile.
If you would like an even smaller island challenge, try my tiny planet survival. I'm making a sequel to that!
EDIT: gotten to the bottom, twice. Found some dungeon like stuff but the risk doesn't seem to match the reward so I ignored it
However, I think this island could be alot better placed, there could be alot more things under the dungeon, and alot more lava under the island. I used mcedit and found only 3 diamonds under the island. Other than that, most resources were pretty easy to get and manipulate. Lots of dirt meant endless tree/bread farming.
Also I just realized why every island survival i've played don't really need a house, is that the spawn point is literally booting out any mobs 24 blocks away (i'm aware of the short delay but how short? Only he knows )
