You should all be proud of me... I transported one of the villagers back to the entrance (he's hiding in a little dirt shelter attached to a tree... covered in torches). I also got us over a stack of emeralds by trading 21 stacks of wool (plus some other stuff).

You may not know this, but there is still another villager back at the village Very Happy So if we transport him back here, then we can breed it Wink

I don't have too much knowledge on the exact details on villager breeding, but someone who does can set up a small area in which they can breed for us, giving us a bigger variety of trade, and allowing emerald to be used to decorate our city Wink

Wow, that's awesome, great work Very Happy how did you transport him? Can't wait to have a look at the emeralds. Perhaps it's time to replace the sandstone pillar in the throne room Wink


@donny, please use stone picks when digging Smile and we're just digging a big rectangle for now then we might make the cave even larger when it's done. It's just to simplify the digging and soothe the OCD about things looking neat =P

Minecart even :p

There is still the track laid (it was almost a perfect use of every single piece of track we have), so it's perfect to get that other guy back too...

Then we start a small scale breeding program till we have 5 or 6 full grown villagers

Kidnapping? Let's be a little diplomatic here and call it protective relocation

Got some more time, so i relocated number two (he's with number one, getting cosy ready for their new home and getting used to each other before they make babies).

I threw up a stack of smoothstone, and mined 3 picks

Today I was planning on just mining a record amount of stone. After 2k stone I had to deal with some shafts and started lagging so bad that I had to re-mine the same blocks several times and my items started to duplicate and everything was a surreal nightmare. I kept playing hoping it would get better but then I died while climbing down the pit and lost my 26 levels that I had been smelting and stuff for days to get so I ragequit. It really sucks that my internet has to be like this because I still want to just work on the caves all day long :/

I know that feeling all too well... When I'll be running around just fine, to then suddenly find myself 50 blocks back and dead on the ground with a spider jumping on my corpse... when I dig stone 5 times each...

Axes don't help much with the fences in mineshafts. They're my main use for those Efficiency-only or Efficiency/unbreaking enchanted diamond picks you get as a byproduct of trying for fortune or silk touch. Those will also cut through planks almost instantly. But to conserve on enchanted-pick durability, I do try to switch back to the axe for the planks when I'm not in a terrible hurry due to monster sounds nearby.

I find they offer quite a nice speed boost compared to fists. Remembering that I run around with stone tools unenchanted

I'm good for anything at the moment really Very Happy

I use stone for almost everything else: mining, excavating, harvesting crops. Stone axes are fine for dealing with pumpkins and trees. Stone picks are great for stone and cobble and sandstone and bricks. Using anything above stone picks on netherrack is a crazy waste of resources. But fences, man...they take a long time on fists, and not much less time with stone tools or even unenchanted iron and diamond ones. For one or two of them, as in fixing placing errors while building an animal pen or a decorative fence, fists are fine. But for mining them as a resource out of mineshafts, enchanted diamond is the only way to go.

And once you use a Fortune pick to dig out coal, redstone, lapis, diamonds, or emeralds for the first time...you never want to mine them with anything less than Fortune III ever again, it feels like a horrific waste of good ore.

I know the feeling, but I like to think of it like the good old days when you didn't have any of that... One ore, is one ore

Dug out more stone, and made more tools that i forgot to place in the tool chest. also found an empty mineshaft chest to use for cobble storage.

Well frack. I was working on a subway station on my other server, removing a decorative bit of fencing from a failed decor scheme, and decided to try a stone axe. When the heck did they change the mining time for fences? Probably back when they made them flammable, I guess. But I swear I tried stone axes before to find them almost as slow as fists, and now they chop through fences as fast as through logs or planks. Well, it's back to stone axes when removing fences from now on for me!
