Managed to move forward with more goals in Minecraft. The “little hill” with the lookout tower was redundant, what with my house being built into the side of a hill, and I have successfully leveled it. In the meantime, my farm continues to go well, although I think I’ve been wasting chicken eggs. It seems you need to throw them a certain distance, before they have the possibility of hatching new chickens. Don’t throw them one square away.
I’ve noticed the skeletons like the side of my hill, with the jungle trees providing a lot of shade for them to sit and hide in the middle of. So I decided to clear it and got started.
I climbed to the tops of jungle trees and cut them down from the top down – the exact oppposite way you’d really do it, but it works in the game. And I managed to fall to my death twice in the process.
It seems when you die, you lose a certain amount of levels, all your stuff drops, and you get a score. No clue what it’s based on. This is much better than the 6 or 10 scores I was getting earlier when I was clueless about how to play.
Continuing to secure enough food to keep my guy full and happy. I think I’m going to concentrate for the moment on filling up with raw chickens, and wheat. I will be expanding the farm to fill in that empty area, complete with irrigation canals run every four squares, and try to amass a gigantic store of wheat. After going through two complete harvests, the number of seeds I’m accumulating continues to grow, so with enough scale I will likely be getting sick of eating bread.
