The Base to Dark Forest railroad is now complete.

Humble beginnings

Humble beginnings

The material for the path when in the forest needed to be considered, and I selected Andesite because of the nice look, yet gray.      I also needed to cross mesa and desert, and after not being able to come up with a good material I realized sand and clay just looks fine all by itself.    And with that, it was a matter of flattening out the path and digging tunnels (two), and laying the track.

I plan to do something with the temple, not quite sure what.     I’m ringing it with cacti first along all the land approaches, and I might make a boat dock at the entrance in the screenshot.

It turned out that I had to have a tunnel here – as I dug along the top of this mountain, I exposed a skeleton spawner.     I looted it and torched it off, so it’s now safe.    But not wanting it to be seen when riding, I realized I had to go farther down.

I went over this massive mesa because the tunnel would have been very long.

And almost back home.

I also ended up with an overflow chest of hardened clay, and half-full chest of dark oak.    Now, time to expand the maps.
