I got over my nasty norovirus. A few workers got it when I did and one went home the day I came back.
All have suffered horribly.
But the bright side is that work in BornToBlock’s world continues on many fronts. BtB is ID10t Killer and he owns the server. I joined on at the same time Inscrutable Half-breed did, then Laconic Pup. Then HackerBoy as he promised to be well behaved and polite. Finally The Dude came out to play and get killed lots, but it has been…. Fun as hell.
We all have our Demesnes which we cultivate -I will show a map sometime. HackerBoy and I (lemur king) live far to the north, about ten minute’s ride by rail which is an all day trip.
Then at work one day, BtB suggests we do Warehouse 13. Of course it will really be Warehouse 12.997.
And being engineers, the designs are grand.
Below, we have just gotten up walls to try to protect ourselves from mobs. The 8192 Auto Smelter looks tiny but it has grown.
The sign down there proclaims “Men @ Work”
Tonight after finishing the catwalk and two huge lava pillars, I took a screenshot for fun.
The warehouse is 100m long by sixty wide and stands 30m tall. There will be a people mover section.
Another section will be dedicated to auto processing raw materials and sending it down to us as we build the lower levels, all the way down into bedrock.
It will even have a small natural park, with iron golems capering in the trees.
It will be much much much bigger, with five engineers and an eight year old boy pounding on it.
The front doors are already piston actuated to keep mobs out.
HackerBoy figured out how to make an on-off water sluice gate just by watching BtB rig the front gate. He’s only eight. There are worse games for him to play. This stimulates his mind.
But, we figure to use the space to showcase the many things you can do in Minecraft as exhibits.
