All right, so I started off this adventure, created myself a random new world on normal difficulty. The first sights you see usually bring a smile tro your face as you look out over the sea or a forest or a mountain range. But not for me.
It’s lovely isn’t it The first thing I see is sand. Fills me full of hope.
So like every other good little miner, I chop down some trees (and cause global warming) and make myself a crafting bench and some lovely wooden tools.
Onto the next job at hand. Coal. Sometimes it’s right infront of you, othertimes it’s miles away or hiding behind some layers of stone. But after a few minutes of wandering, I am victorious!
*tears up* It’s wonderful to find some coal, in such an ideal place. It’s like a little hole in the ground. It shall be turned into a cave, and I will live here till I make a castle.
However there’s always nice surprises in Minecraft, so imagine my face when I mined up all the coal and came across this!
Oh fuck yes I have a basement pool. I didn’t explore it fully seeming I haven’t got around to crafting myself a sword and I don’t want there to be some dark crevice where some monster can leap out at me.
After spending some time covering my new lair with a dirt roof and walls, and placing a door I feel safe. I can spend the night in my dimly lit lair, safe from all the beasties.
So this is my little hide out, around the corner to the left is my door, and all that stone is where the coal was and where I discovered my pool.
As night set in, I hid in my home, hearing the screeches of spiders and the groans of zombies, I’m pretty sure they were on my roof, I couldn’t see them at all. I was pretty tense, then suddenly…
Do not adjust your monitors or refresh madly, that is a black square and is exactly what I saw while hearing spiders and zombies roam around.
You see, my laptop has a little problem. I call it ‘The black screen of death’. It over heats, it turns off the screen but leaves the sound on. Handy eh?
So much for playing games without the cooling stand (the fans aren’t even turned on anymore and it still helps keep my laptop cool! Madness!) I haven’t checked back since this happened on Sunday. I just know I’m going to have to rebuild my little home. At least the world is still saved…I’d cry if I lost my basement swimming pool.
Next time, probably what happened to my save, me rebuilding and then resuming this adventure.
