Would a gold farm work on the SG server?  I'm guessing that you can't go through the portals, but because the portal blocks exist, there is a chance that a Pigman will spawn next to it.  Looks pretty impressive!


Yep, it's been done. You'll sometimes see pigmen spawn from the wilderness/nether portals :)

Here's an album of the starts of the first floor and some of my local line:

EDIT:: Almost forgot to mention, the stone slab walls will be replaced by diorite once 1.8 comes. :)

And another shader shot just for the heck of it:

That's a nice lookin' gold farm design.  I haven't seen one that actually looks like a building before. Thumbs up! :D

Note to self: Do not build computers that fit perfectly into your tower.

Now I just have to build this effing thing. It just fits so nicely!

4 bits (meaning that it can count up to 15) for those who are interested.

Wow! Would you mind giving me a world download? I'd like to take a peek at the Redstone!

The word 'onomatopoeia' is an onomatopoeia because it's derived from the sound that is made when the word is spoken aloud.

Sure! No problem. I can set one up for you soon. Although, I've packed into as little space as possible, it would probably be easier to see if you downloaded another 4 bit computer from online. In any case, I'll put it up soon!

I have not included program memory yet, but all the bussing is complete, and it can technically do math (up to 15, because it's 4 bit) in base 10. You have to flip the control wires manually (they're organized at the top).

Thanks! Hopefully I'll have time for a look at it when I get home from my trip. Until then I'll have to wait and think about how great being able to play the desktop version of minecraft on a phone would be. :(

Since fishing huts seem to be all the rage lately, and I needed a good shell for my zombie farm, I thought I'd make one!

It really doesn't fit with the rest of my area so far. I think I'll stick it in the old historic district or something :P

 

Here's it from a different angle:

I've done 2 sections of my storage! I'm making it a maze of sorts, with one way entrances/exits and all that. Here are the redstone and smelter sections (complete with fancy piston and lava doors!):

I like the recurring element of low ceilings - kinda gives your builds a bit of an MC Escher vibe. More!

Huh -- Haven't really thought of it like that before! Interesting. :)

 

And thanks!

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been on hiatus from SixtyGig for the past couple months. In addition to being a little bit overwhelmed by the new school year (I’ve thankfully started to get a better handle on things, starting to reintegrate myself to minecraft now) I’ve been spending a most of my free time up until now on an electronics project I decided to try. :)
 
Enter PiNES!
8UlXdPD.jpg
I had the idea of putting a Raspberry Pi (read: credit card sized computer, kind of like Arduino) inside of an old NES console, programmed to play old games. In my research I discovered that I was not the only one to have this idea — in fact, it had been done quite a few times in the past, but sadly not very well documented. Despite that, I had a lot of help with the hardware from this video of people who did the same thing, although it seems they left out a few steps. 
 
What follows is a long and detailed explanation of the technical features and how I did things, with some pictures too! :D Before that, though, here's the final result, and a screenshot from FFVI/III:
Spoiler
Long and detailed explanation:

I've been having a ton of fun putting this together, but now it's time to get back into MC. :D
