Friday November 25 - A farmer's life for me


After yesterday's blatant disregard for my neighbours, I've ended up with a nice little supply of wheat seeds and sugar cane. I've already planted the sugar and it's growing a treat - as you can see. Who knew crime could be so sweet? But I need to do something a bit more complicated with the wheat.


So I need a hoe? Jeez, it's always so much effort to do anything. Grassland needs to be tilled before seeds can be planted, and fertile ground needs to be within four squares of a water supply. This means I've had to build a custom reservoir - requiring me to build a bucket - and it also helps to have a light source to keep monsters away. After planting the seeds they should grow into delicious piles of wheat.


What am I actually supposed to do with all this wheat and sugar now? Oh boy.


Alright, I've officially lost it. I'm going to check myself into a mental home after I finish my latest project - I'm trying to create an underground grass area which animals will spawn in and I can then use as meat. Because after getting some crops on the go you need a nice bit of meat, right? I fancy some cows. I'm hoping cows will spawn in my massive underground animal farm.


I just read that animals don't spawn in Minecraft 1.0 and that my massive underground farm is essentially useless. Fuuuuuuuuuuu. I'm clocking off for the weekend.

Sounds like my day job.

I'm off to work in my underground wheat cave.

I still won't play Minecraft, but heh, I enjoyed the article, was a good read. Particular love the bit where Pearson got pissed off. Should turn this into some kinda video show where you play new games and annoy the crap outta everyone else at VG.

Fantastic feature Martin. I'm looking forward to the bias towards features this holiday as the game releases dry up. You guys do my favourite articles about random and interesting stuff.
