WOW.. I am amazed, even if this was done in creative, I would have been in awe. You're doing a great job, keep it up. BTW, where do you manage to find all that coal? and even if you made charcoal, how do you get that many trees? And the stone? I suppose you do a lot of mining. Or do you have a cobblestone generator?
I dont find trees. I farm them.
Here is a quick shot of a freshly planted timber stand... 256 new saplings
Spent a couple hours starting my branch mines at bedrock depth... couldnt have picked a tougher place to drop my vertical shaft, but I am stubborn on theme things and I want my shaft direcly under th emain castle tower, so I hammered my way through. X/ I hit four caverns and lava once. Died a lot on the way down and sealing up the shaft from the caverns, but it is done and safe now... Will work my branches from bedrock up to lvl 17. Had plenty of luck finding diamonds( 10 in 90 min today) though they wont be very necessary in this build. Main reason to go deep was for the redstone... needed compass and map for clay mining travels. Gonna have to take a few overnight treks to gather enough clay to cook it for the bricks to build the gatehouse... only sitting on 6 stacks of brick after 2 hours of running shore line;
Though I did gather about a dozen stacks of sand from beaches... wont have to seek out a desert after all.
