Well. This generated nicely. Lots of vines! Initial inspection of the area seems promising – a very nice setting, at least, to build a shelter.
Which I did, post-haste. I built a small wood house, chopped down about ten of the nicely vined trees, which I did feel pretty bad about. It started to get dark, so grabbed some sand and went inside. With terrifying sounds going all around me, dug around, made a furnace, and fired some glass.
While that was cooking, I began to dig down – started a nice mineshaft. Which turned into three nice mineshafts.
After the sun came up (and I watched the nasties burn through my new glass panes), I chopped some more wood for fuel, tools, and chests.
Exploring a little (and getting lost for a few panicky minutes), I found some potentially fruitful natural caves scattered about. I left some small towers of sand/dirt/whatever I had with me near the entrances so I could find them when I felt better equipped to handle whatever horrors lie within.
Speaking of underground horrors, the left-hand mine shaft broke into a large underground cave, where I found iron… among other things.
Found a skeleton and two zombies down there – tricked them into a bottleneck, where they were easily dispatched from around a corner. Took my spoils of rotten meat. O boy.
I ran outside too early in the morning – didn’t see the two spiders on top of the house. I saw the burning zombies and thought yeah! Guess I should build a skylight. I killed them, but in the process I was hurt pretty badly – and apparently starving, I wandered around until I found a cow. Sorry, cow, I need your sweet, sweet, sweetmeats. Hamburger for dinner. Full up!
Ran away from some creepers. There are now several creeper craters scattered around. Irritating.
Took some time to dig out a store room and build some chests. They are empty – for now. All planned out though. Time to gather resources!
As I was digging out the storeroom, I guess the ceiling was too close to the waterline. Some sand caved in, and I had to quickly block it up. Going back outside, I had made a mess of a local beach. Fixed the dirt & sand, and took some time to plant some saplings around. Got to keep this place nice if I plan to stay.
AND I PLAN TO STAY.
