In our December Minecraft session, I got back to building out my cave. There were some natural rooms in the back that weren’t really connected to other parts of the cave; I decided to tackle those.
First, I looked at the top room. If I’m remembering correctly, it connected on the inside to the room on the right of the cave; I decided to also connect it to the outside, by building some long stairs up and to the outside. That turned out to lead to an outside room where I had put some workbenches.
There’s a lower room in the back as well, though. I decided to connect it first to the upper room, and then to the first room that I had finished on the left side:
Then I squared out that room, added railings and a floor, and put real stairs in the passage instead of blocks.
While this was going on, Pat (I think, it might have been Dan?) built a path in the air extending out perpendicularly from Dan’s path. Partway along there, Miranda found a village, and decided to improve it.
Miranda worked on the paths and on making the heights sensible. And then there was one house that was actually completely inaccessible: if I’m remembering correctly, it had a door, but the door opened up into dirt? It ended up making sense to put a tunnel where the door was, with a path above it at the same level as other parts of the village.
Pat, meanwhile, while building the path, found an area that he thought would work well for a lighthouse.
Meanwhile, Dan spent time widening some of the tunnels in his path.
After doing this, I did a render of the whole world, you can see some of these features there.
