So I have been playing a LOT of Pre2, and I just got Pre3. I set up camp in a cavern near a ravine… Definitely not my usual style, but I’m excited. I got the idea to settle in a cave from watching WAY too much Ethoslab, but I was thrilled when I saw the ravine, because my goal with this world WAS to colonise and settle a ravine.
Here’s the vision: For the caves and caverns on the side of the ravine I started on, I want a sort of dwarvish feel. Great halls, fires/lava, cobblestone, utilitarian, big, and blocky. For the side of the ravine I’ve JUST started to light up, I want to use a lot of blues, mossy cobblestone, a lot of water, and hidden light sources… Especially (when/if it’s fixed) glowstone. Basically like a caveish wonderland. I want to create some new waterfalls in the ravine itself (it already has some GORGEOUS ONES since it’s under the OCEAN. Thank you O Notch, creator of the square sun and moon, of the blocks below, and of all the blocky creatures…) and set up some balconies with banisters and such at the entrance to every cave that touches the ravine. I want one or two bridges between the sides made of smooth stone, and I would LOVE if those are right next to waterfalls.
So far it’s been arduous, the ravine floor is a tangle of monsters which I’ve been slowly cutting my way through. There are natural walkways creating 4-5 levels in the ravine I’ve been lighting up, as well. I THINK after I have the balconies and bridges I’ll kill the walkways. The cavern I started in already has soil and grass and a number of cows and sheep… I just need to “settle” it to my satisfaction. More fences, more ‘buildings’ etc. I also want it to have a little pond/lake with a small waterfall.
SO YEAH. There haven’t been pictures because it is all VERY ugly right now. Once it starts to shape up I promise to inundate this blog. :)
