As you know, I've been pretty busy lately. One of my few breaks from studying and writing has been playing Minecraft. This hasn't left me a lot of time for blogs, but in light of the fact that it's not uncommon for me to blog about the games I'm playing anyway, putting up a short series showing you my Minecraft world isn't that strange.
A slave to tradition, I'm headed west by rail. The river just to the west of my base contains my first real project; an underwater glass dome illuminated by lava. It was built somewhere between the time I was huddling in holes at night afraid for my life and the time I was steeped in (virtual) ennui at the lack of new horizons.
This is a tiny portion of the village to the west. When I start heading back east, I'll have some nice pictures of Minecraft villages up. When you've seen one, you've seen them all. The focus here is the elevated rail system done with my best Minecraft approximation of classical arches.
