I didn't memorize the looks of it enough to actually see what you've dug, but I remember it being rather large and now it isn't large at all, great job guys Very Happy should be done with the bottom in no time, if I just get a chance to play

Dug two rows back on each side of the top, had a ceiling cave in while digging out a vein of coal, went up to the surface briefly to seal it off. Found it desert up there (no surprise), planted a few cactus to give the spiders that follow me around all night with their see-through-solid-rock powers something to trip over while they're too busy hissing at me to watch where they're going. Installed a simple water drop on the secondary ladder for quick trips down to the bottom for more tools or to dump cobble in the enderchest. Saw a creeper and a spider on the scaffolding someone left in the main hall, so I lit it up a bit better to avoid them dropping on us unexpectedly. Gotta light those up better, guys. Also cut a bit more wood outside.

That was some good work indeed, I thought I was the only one to dig that much at once. Big props to train. Smile

I'm so glad to finally be able to move up the to the top. I feel like we've been getting through this pretty fast the last week or so, but I realize it's taken quite a while just to get through the bottom 3 levels, and there's like 40+ to go. So let's say it took 2 weeks digging out the bottom 3 with a lot of work put in and several people digging them. That leaves approximately 15 times as much work to do to get through the entire chunk, which would take 30 weeks, or approximately 7.5 months, if we kept up this speed. And I'm pretty sure it took way more than 2 weeks, possibly up to a month. So it could take up to a year, and I doubt we'll even keep up the pace.

I guess what I'm saying is we need to figure something out, because we don't wanna spend the next year just digging out these caves.

Btw, thanks to an enderman, the small cave and a bit of the large one, now has a grass floor. It's a bit odd how it changes colour in a certain spot. =p

im wondering if we should dig holes in the center straight down until were half way there then place a 2x2 patch of tnt and repeat this in 3 more spots around the center area, then place tnt on the top of the straight down holes and activate it thus dropping onto the other tnt and then setting it off, thus doing the digging for us (well a great deal of it? then we doe the rest by hand Razz

just an idea lol.

Forum acted weird for me too 0.o you guys posted messages while I was typing this (had to go afk halfway through) and when it showed me the new posts it had a bunch of them from Bren and I didn't recognize 'em and can't find them anywhere, pretty weird lol

Anyway, we are open to to some TNT usage to lessen the ridiculous amount of digging needed, but it feels like cheating and we don't wanna blow up any iron, gold or other goodies, so we'll see. Smile

Okay, I noticed that somehow the thread has gotten separated. 67 pages are in a locked thread, and the last 8 have been moved to a new one. How this happened, I have no idea. I also could've sworn the total count was 67 pages before the split. And the weird posts I mentioned are the last ones in the other thread. This means this weird thing occurred when you posted as I was making a post. Something must've gone haywire when I removed my post and then remade it.

Alright, sorry about flooding this thread, but I just noticed that in the last post of the "old" thread, a link to the first page of this one has appeared. How odd isn't this? Shocked and Bren isn't even online.

If we are to use any TNT, it will definitely be above level 30.

Hey, I got busy on my other server, or was unavailable due to computer problems, and basically didn't come on the server here at all for a couple of months. Even now I come on for maybe an hour or two each day. Real life gets in the way, and people have busy lives outside this server. We understand. Just do what you can, when you can, and we'll all muddle through somehow.

No digging this afternoon, instead I got started on the temporary farms on the floor of the side cavern.


Starting on the far left, there's a bit of a melon patch. Mostly watermelons due to a shortage of handy pumpkin seeds, but eventually all pumpkins (I don't think villagers buy watermelon for some reason), not for trading, but to replace the torches lighting the fields with jackolanterns embedded in short walls between fields.

The narrow 2-wide fields between closely spaced water trenches (all to eventually be covered by short walls with embedded jackolanterns, but we don't have enough pumpkins handy without going back to town) are planned to be sugarcane. But I hadn't planted as many outside as I thought I had, so there's only one row of 25 planted so far.

The wider 8-wide fields are planned to be wheat. Only one planted due to having fewer seeds handy than I thought.

This is just a quickie version I whipped up with one trip to the worksite minifarm for seeds, hoes, and smoothstone, one trip to the surface for reeds, and the bucket of water and tools I had on me when I logged in. We could do a bigger version in the main cave floor, and once the dirt scaffolding roof is completed (I assume that's what that thing is, I had to light it up myself a few days ago because creepers were spawning on it at night) we might think of installing a suspended row or two of lights over the wheat fields to improve growing rates a little bit.

Speaking of mobs spawning in the dig site, while I greatly appreciate the efforts of whoever is actually working on shaping the walls, and think they're otherwise doing a great job, walls that are not entirely vertical or inward sloped NEED to be lit up. Even on a 1x1 projection, mobs can spawn. Luckily the current mob AI precludes them jumping down on us from more than a few blocks up, one of the recent snapshots changed it slightly, so they will soon be willing to take up to half their current health in falling damage to jump down on us. If you can hear a zombie snarling up on the wall, and I can, he's within 16 blocks and can see you, and thus low enough to jump down at you once the new AI goes into effect with the next update. I don't want creepers jumping down on us and blowing up the new farms, or skeletons sniping at us from the walls, so I lit up what I could reach from the floor.

Oh so your the one who built all of that stuff. I was wondering

Holy crap, I haven't been gone for THAT long have I!!!!!???

And no, I wasn't doing any spring cleaning with the forums, or I would have mentioned it... Obviously the forum just shit itself over such a large thread... Perhaps I will move the old one to the basket (which I believe is a section where the threads exist, but you guys can't see), so it's around, but doesn't clutter up the place... Or perhaps I could create an archive that all you guys can see, but not alter, in case you were looking around for some information....

As I said on a previous thread, life has hit hard, and I have barely been able to do anything minecraft related... But you guys seem to have picked up the pace even more Very Happy great work

Just try to pitch in on the discussions to help making decisions, and we'll be just fine Wink

Oh and there's plenty of useless old threads that could get moved to the basket.

removed a huge amount of stone ,( i think) went through about 7 picks, emptied the storage chests in the cave, and found that digging 1x2 tunnels and then placing 2 high TNT every 4 blocks will remove a very good share of stone for the least amount of TNT so far, think this is a good method if we want to help the progress along some.
