    ok I'm gonna start up again soon. And if it fizzles out again, when 1.14 (seaworld) comes around, I'll get right back to it.

    Well, here I am again! Despite my fairly shaky start, I'm certain I can make this work.

    Hey, feel free to give me suggestions along the way. What building theme should I go for? (military, dwarven, orcish, etc)

    An underground dwarfish base would probably be the safest choice. If you survive long enough you might be able to add some redstone to it.

    Thanks, I'll go for that. Ideally I'd start in a mountain range, so for now I'll go with a primitive wood hut then move on to Dwarven as I advance.

    Oh shit your back on this, gotta start up my, “Bear’s Helpful tips to survive hardcore” again.
    Oh and also would you think of doing something like no meat, or no vegetables for a new start. Or something like no swords but you can use any other weapon like an axe or potions. Just a few suggestions if you want to try something new.

    Okay if it was a normal survival world yes, but I'm gonna need all the food sources I can get to survive this.

    Day #?
    2017-12-06_16.08.49.png ^ Found a cave near my house, looks promising. May use it in a Dwarven build somehow. 2017-12-06_16.29.18.png ^ Another nearby cave, this one seems to go deep. 2017-12-06_16.45.31.png ^ Exploring my surroundings, got a dash of savanna over there. 2017-12-06_16.46.16.png ^ Got closer, even more savanna 2017-12-06_16.48.28.png ^ House almost done. I'm gonna look for spruce would later because the doors look better. 2017-12-06_16.50.30.png ^ Exploring the second cave I found, this looks like some good stuff. 2017-12-06_16.56.56.png ^ Pic taken from opposite side of ravine.
    Got a ton of iron from just one trip. Looks like I'll be moving on to the Dwarven builds sooner than I thought! May have to upgrade my cabin to a castle soon.

    Allot can be done in a day. NEVER use the caves as a starting tunnel/hole. I'd dig a 2x2 hole straight down on top of a mountain and make connecting tunnels from there.

    I don't know, I haven't encountered any monsters down there yet. And I've blocked off any dark tunnels they could spawn in. Whole thing's pretty lit up, too.

    Well in hardcore you often start thinking you're doing pretty good, and then you discover death was right around the corner waiting for you to start thinking like that.

    I'm still living in the cabin, don't worry about that. But I am starting to make the cave more structured and get a mining base up. Not going to make the caves my home yet.

    Well I mean the hill/mountain base is more safer than a cabin unless you're in a cave.

If it becomes more permanent I'll probably replace it with stone brick

    I guess I never did much survival before this thread, so I never really made one before. I imagine the water'll be a hassle.

    It was... Sorta creative without flying. Classic was interesting. You can play it by tweaking your launcher, actually.

    This inspired me to start a hardcore mode world. I died by mining a block below me and falling into lava (In my defense it was a strip mine and I didn't expect lava there) and made another one, only to find it wan't hardcore. I just locked it on hard and left spawn... so =P

    got diamonds though. Diamond pick, sword, and enchant table. I'm gonna try to kill the enderdragon without dying.

    Sure is, but what I've heard of 1.14 will fix that.
    Oh, Classic was the original mc version, right? I might give it a go someday.
    Diamonds? Better than any of my previous attempts at survival. Good luck with the dragon!

    apparently 1.14 will change how water interacts with transparent blocks... Other than that though it won't really change how it flows or anything...

    but yea... thx. The trick is to just spend the first day getting stone tools, a bunch of food and like half a stack of logs, then just going underground for a night and usually the next day. Then just cave away some iron armor and tools and hit the strip mine. Water buckets are also SUPER useful.

    I haven't heard about stuff like fences, but it will flow properly on slabs and stairs.

    In the snapshot, it makes sponges annoying because it turns all water around it that it doesn't absorb static. Now... That can be useful, but it also can be a pain.

    I know I said I'd do Dwarven, but instead I'll do Goblin. Building theme will be exactly the same, but instead of statues of Dwarves, there'll be statues of Goblins.

    Day #15
    A bunch of stuff happened
    2017-12-13_16.04.47.png ^ The Crimbus tree has bloomed, and soon will come the decorations! 2017-12-13_16.26.06.png ^ I have touched down at the bottom of the ravine. Dog has accompanied me. 2017-12-13_16.29.53.png ^ Found a tunnel branching off the ravine, gonna explore this. 2017-12-13_16.30.42.png ^ Splits into two, a fork in the cave 2017-12-13_16.30.49.png ^ Hell yeah, man 2017-12-13_16.31.10.png ^ Stupid zombie can't get out lol 2017-12-13_16.31.57.png ^ A thinner ravine cutting through this larger one, weird. 2017-12-13_16.35.37.png ^DAMNIT SHIT 2017-12-13_16.35.46.png ^ F 2017-12-13_16.39.09.png ^ Actually there's nine diamonds, I had forgotten to mine one when I had taken this. 2017-12-13_16.41.28.png ^ Hell yeah, powered rails here I come 2017-12-13_16.42.20.png ^ Finally reached the end of the main ravine! 2017-12-13_16.43.27.png ^ Ominous shit 2017-12-13_16.43.45.png ^ SKELETON RIGHT OUTSIDE! Broke the blocks and killed it, survived 2017-12-13_16.48.02.png ^ I'm gonna make this into a castle. 2017-12-13_16.58.00.png ^ Memorial service for Dog 2017-12-13_17.07.14.png ^ I'll start out building the towers and walls, then break down the inside and build it up to more fit the castle.
    The castle will be connected subterraneanly to my mine tunnels, and also that underground dock I mentioned. Now that I got redstone, I'll try to get some basic shit set up. Soon, a nether portal and outpost as well so I have a supply of quartz.

    Assuming I'm still able to access the forums, I will continue to post updates and hopefully stream gameplay.

    Put logs like a big door, tripwire hooks like handles, and a spruce door in the middle of it

    I more mean like a gate-ish thing for the big outer hole, and maybe a normal door for the inside. I think I got some spruce left over so I'll use that on the internal
