I've been having a blast with Minecraft. Today I finally dug deep enough to find some redstone and hit lava. I plugged up the lava, covering it with stones. Then I tried to go across those stones to mine something. The lava burned me to death twice. Unfortunately those two deaths cost me a TON of resources and tools when crap fell in the lava and was incinerated.

I finally smelted some iron and made a mining pick out of metal, and then went and got mined up that redstone with my shiny new pick.

I'm engaging in a new strategy currently. Searching out natural caves and running through their entirety for coal and iron. I've been raking in the resources and I have only once delved too deeply and awakened the balrog found monsters underground. I'm still working on not getting lost, but I'm starting to only throw torches on the right walls in narrow passages. That way I know if I'm going down torches will be on my right and if I'm heading back to the surface they'll be on my left.

I've also built a ridiculously tall tower out of wood and absolutely covered the thing with torches. It is located right above my home base so makes seeing where it is from afar much easier. Climbing up the thing at night is also helpful as I've been sticking torches in the ground by the entrance to caves. I can see every cave I've visited for miles around at night because of the tower.

No idea what I'm going to finally do when I'm happy with my iron stockpile, though. Any suggestions?

Man I've yet to find Redstone. I've also been too afraid to delve monster infested caves, though I'm getting very very close to needing to.

As for the iron, I was going to recommend armor because having a nearly full set of armor, you'll freakin' love how little damage creepers do to you. On the other hand, should you die, that makes for a painful thing to lose.

I'm trying out this time leather armor and carrying around 1 iron tool of each, still relying primarily on stone tools. I think the only difference between iron and leather armor is the color (and leather armor is ugly >.>) and how much damage the armor can take before bits break.

Your torch and tower ideas sound fantastically helpful. I'm not sure home instance can use the tower due to all the floating islands and tall mountains that tower over any structure I could probably build right now. That problem will end once I relocated to my home in the sky though :3

Work instance however could use that method perhaps.

Leather armor is really nice for surviving a fight. Especially an ambush. But it is usually ruined after that one fight. Stupid cows need to spawn denser and closer to my home.

BOO!

Additionally, perhaps we should move our normal game talk to the actual Minecraft thread and leave this one open for showing off crazy stuff you can do in Minecraft or more tutorial stuffs.

Not looking forward to torches that go out.. I hope lanterns aren't expensive.

So this is what my workbench looks like at "Work Instance." I'm particularly proud of the warning sign I put up in a probably doomed effort to stop myself from ever accidentally walking into my item incinerator.

Another screen shot of work instance, this time of some of the "Public Works" projects I've undertaken just to spend all the stone I'm collecting.

Snow is really well done in this game. I haven't come across it in a world I'm actually playing, but I did spawn new worlds endlessly until I got to see it.
