Stronghold

Post  Brendanan on Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:18 am

Yes, that's right, we have found a stronghold. The coordinates are at x: -655 y=41 z=-422. Long story short, me and arrow finished an apartment, went exploring, and used eye of ender at 0,0 (to avoid the bugged eyes), and went even further away from the city and found a cave, I died, arrow stayed around, and managed to find it Very Happy

It is a long way away, and please do not activate the portal

Also please dont go digging out the cracked/mossy stonebricks. Im repairing the stronghold and will remove and replace them with regular stonebrick. All bricks i replace will be put in a chest for collection.

So you're replacing the cracked and mossy ones with regular stone bricks? Doesn't that kind of kill the character of the place?

on the other hand, we get cracked stone, i seem to remember a plan to build a vault at some point, using the buttons on the pillars of the entrance chamber maybe? cracked stone would suit the decor of there, and the mossy stone for the escape tunnel

I'm liking the ideas... Also, time for some basic maths... Theres 3 strongholds right? And they're in a triangle... A triangle around what? Is it an equilateral around 0,0??? If so, then we can easily find where the other two are with simple vectors...

It's not gonna be that easy, is it...

.......probably not, but we should be able to find them all eventually.

Was quite the adventure last night. My character is still there trying to survive. I was hoping to retrieve our old stuff before returning to the base. What were the coords for that anyways?

If I remember correctly the ender eyes point to the nearest stronghold. If they are indeed in a triangle around 0,0 shouldn't theoretically walking in another direction lead us to the others? Let's say they're in direction A, B and C from 0,0. You threw the eye in a direction that sent you going to direction A. If you walk a few steps in another direction and throw the eye that way, it should fall towards direction B or C if this is actually how they are placed.

Will also has a point; the cracked and mossy stone could be a great add to the city.

You should be much safer there now arrow... I threw up more than two stacks of torches...

The ravine leads into an abandoned mineshaft, so we've hit the jackpot with 3 in 1... I destroyed the cave spider spawner, cause those things scare the crap outta me
