VGHVI Minecraft: October 31, 2019

Nov 03 2019

For the October Minecraft session, I wanted to make a path from the lighthouse to the top of the mountain near it. There was a cave nearby that seemed promising, so I wanted to look there first.

Looking across the bay from the lighthouse to the cave in the side of the mountain.

While wandering around, I noticed a hole in the sand, and it seemed surprisingly deep?

Yeah, there’s a cave down there, here’s the view up the hole.

And there’s a second chimney going down near the bottom of the one under the hole in the sand.

Here’s a bat that I ran into.

Returning to where I was planning to build from, here’s the inside of that cave mouth in the mountain.

Here’s a waterfall that was somewhere around there?

The view from the bottom of that waterfall.

Another place where that cave leads to the bay, where the strange physics means that the water doesn’t flood in.

I think the back of this wall is where I want to put some stairs up. This is on your right side when you enter the cave from the water, so it won’t go deep into the mountain, it’ll go up just inside the edge of the mountain.

 

So that’s the plan: build some stairs up from there, then see how that looks from the top. And, if I get inspired, do something interesting at the bottom too.

Here’s the view up from the bottom of the stairs.

And the view down from the top; pretty long stairs.

I think this must be the view into the cave from the bottom of the stairs? Looks a little messy…

Halfway up, the stairs pass over this crevasse.

The view of the lighthouse from near the top of the stairs.

I have pathways connecting the other landmarks on top of the mountain, I’ll need to add one (or two?) to the stair entrance. (Which is sort of near the middle of this picture, a little on the left side.)

Maybe I can fit a path here under the trees? It’s straight enough.

Now there’s a path in place.

Here’s how the new path meets the deck that had been on the water side of the top of the mountain.

I’m also going to fork the path so it goes up to the fountain.

Here’s the path along the edge of the mountain top near the building and fountain.

Extending the path further past the fountain.

Now you can see most of the path network. (Though a fair chunk on the water side is covered by trees.)

 

That’s what I was doing; Dan had apparently decided that he was done with his white underground passages and he built a series of decorations on the surface.

I’m pretty sure this decoration near the entrance to the underground passages is new?

Here’s a white smoking boot thing near the train tracks.

Some pumpkin blocks surrounded by fires.

A closer view.

Their pumpkin nature becomes a little more apparent from the top.

A green sculpture with some bells near it.

While wandering around in a cave near there, I came across this unexpected sight.

Here’s the view through that glass; it’s from a patterned pit that Dan had built several months ago.

Here’s the view of that from the non-cave side.

 

And Ariel was continuing work on their castle from last time.

Traveling to the castle, I went past the jungle glitch in the ice; was that chunk of ice in the middle of the jungle there from the start of the glitch, or has the ice started to reform??

Approaching the castle.

The visiting committee is still here; Ariel is consulting with its human member, while its llama members are examining the wall.

Patterned windows.

And a patterned door.

Here’s the inside view from the top, you can see the plan for interior walls.

A closer view of the bridge, you can see the water from this side.
