Miranda had been asking for a while for me to generate a map of the whole world, so I finally got around to doing that; I found a tool called Mapcrafter that does a fine job. I unfortunately don’t have quite enough disk space on this server to store the rendered files, but here are some portions of it:

In our November Minecraft session, I wanted to figure out what to do add next to the cave. I’d been tentatively thinking I’d add more rooms around the central area, maybe even some walkways, but I also wanted to see if there were nice room-shaped spaces below.
I ended up wandering around the whole time, though, not really coming to a conclusion. First, I looked at the main body of the cave:
And then I wandered around a lot below the area I’d been working on in October. And, I will say: those are some good caves there. They don’t necessarily show up well in pictures, but they’re impressive when I’m wandering around, and also seeing the lava rivers so early made me realize just how deep the main cave went.
That cross-shaped exit was already familiar to me: it’s on the other side of the river of the cave, about halfway between the cave and Pinetown. So yeah, the whole area is riddled with caves; I certainly didn’t end up exploring the whole thing.
None of that suggested an obvious place to build, so I went up to the main cave to see if there were other room possibilities that I missed. And I did notice some rooms high up on the back wall, maybe I can do something with those? I’m really not sure…
After that, I wandered over to see what Pat was doing: he was building on top of an overhang a few hills away. (There really is a lot of neat terrain in this area!)
