I totally am a rare items hoarder myself .. I may not find a use for them, but I have them!! Except saddles, I tend to always use saddles..
And I'm surprised I have never tried to re-create any Legend of Zelda buildings.. I think if I did any, I would probably try to re-create Lon Lon ranch, or the Gerudo Fortress. I have though about trying to re-create building from A Link to the Past, but need to plan how to go about it, and which building to do.. How did your versions of the Hyrule Castle and the Temple of Time go?
I know!! I actually have not played using horses yet... I stopped playing I think a month before that update, but I can pretty much guarantee that if it's hard to come by, I'll have a million of them in a chest that I will never use hahaha! I made Hyrule Castle in a single player survival game. It was my fortress to hide in >:3 It was pretty awesome. The Temple of Times stands unfinished... I began it in creative on a server that I was playing on that is now dead. I also forget to screencap so I have no pictures of it or of my totally awesome oasis well house that I made.
I was excited about the horses! I hadn't played minecraft for a few months, but when the Horse snapshot came out my Little brothers convinced me to download the snapshot and play with them, and that propelled me into playing regularly again .
I understand the disappointment about not having pictures of builds, my computer had an issue last June/July, and ended up resetting itself.. which caused me to lose all of my worlds and builds on them . Some of the ones I had that were much older I was able to save as they were on a different computer I transferred over.. But there was some that I was sad to see gone.
