Illustration Friday : Spent

Hello all. I've noticed the more risks I take with IF the fewer comments and views I get. That's understandable I suppose, so at the risk of becoming unpopular here's an image that encapsulates "spent" in the most primal way. It's a repost of mine, but not from very long ago.

More Minecraft aka The Case of the Disappearing Weekend

From up here you can see how long my great tunnel is.

Here's the view from the inside, you can see the glass ceiling and all the water above it. Also the spiral tower in the background.

This is the best way to view the siral tower as it's too tall to get a good picture much closer than this, it goes way up past the cloud line.

This is the view from the top of the spiral, there's a pool of deep water at the bottom to allow you to get down in a hurry without breaking your kneck.

Here's the garden at the top of the tower.

'Nuff said.

Minecraft Wrap Up

Before I move on to a new level I'll do a little round up of the last few things I made.

Here's the beginnings of a mountain top fort.

This is a pretty high lighthouse.

From the top of the lighthouse there's a great view of the other buildings. From here you can see just how long the bridge had to go before it reached land. Also that I got bored and started a bunch more forest fires.

Illustration Friday : Transportation

I like to walk everywhere, my thighs do not.

Fair enough, here it is if you want to use it yourself.
No charge.

What I did in Minecraft

Just above the bridge you can see the little shack I started with, it's made out of dirt but still has windows and a door with roof access, It's now abandoned but still good for hiding from creeps, just bring your own lights.
On the left is my second home, a four level stone castle with double front doors, roof garden (tree), workshop, windows throughout and full indoor lighting.
The bridge has a glass floor every other step which is what makes that pattern in it's shadow, it also makes sure zombies can't use the shadow to escape from the sunlight. It is also fully illuminted to prevent enemies spawning into my safe house.

On the left here you can see my third building, A five level stone circular tower with a fill glass dome roof connected to the main castle. This is a must for finding haven when I'm mining on the big main island. You can see on the far right that the castle bridge also goes off in the other direction to a new land I have yet to visit.

And here's a small forest fire I started. I placed some kindling on the leaves and struck it with a flint from a distance, then I watched it burn and spread. In other, sadder news it did kill a pig.
