1) Skeleton spawner halfway between N and NE (1370, -1970).
2) On my island (take the connection from South station), I have a very efficient wool farm and an obsidian generator (-1070, 1235... obsidian generator is in the barn, ground floor (bring plenty of redstone)... wool farm at the side of the barn). I now also have a modest tree farm... just PLEASE bring bonemeal, as it's a hungry machine. Tree farm is behind the villa.
3) Wool farm at Ros' Sapphire Tower... she has a connection from North station IIRC.
I'll post this in here, so that way, any potentials may see what we're truly about.
Ok, so yesterday was not my day at all.
I got up, had me a choccy bar (naughty naughty) and a cup of coffee, and fired up Minecraft.
Today, I thought, I'll try and and get a bit more of my villa finished. For this, I'll need lots of quartz.
So, donning my trusty "nether armour", I set off!
Fast forward about 5 hours (minus about 2 for going out for lunch), I decided to pick one last vein of quartz and head back. That's when tragedy struck. One extremely moronic zombie pigman with impeccable timing, wondered in front of my pick just as I started to mine. ****. Him and his buddies then proceeded to gang **** me and leave me to die.
Fast forward a few expletives later and I'm bounding towards the nether portal like a man possessed, trying to recover the 8 stacks of nether quartz I had so lovingly (and sometimes precariously) mined, along with my enchanted diamond gear. Deep down, I knew I wouldn't get there in time.. my home is about 1500m from the central portal as it is.
Sure enough, I got there and my stuff was gone. Unimpressed Arrow was unimpressed.
So, I had a few diamonds left in storage and set about crafting new gear to replace what I had lost. I even spent an hour or so grinding the xp to enchant them.
Great, all sorted, back to normal. Happy once more.
So seeing as I'd pretty much picked the area around the central nether portal clean of quartz, I decided I'd mine instead, and try and top up on a few ores.
So off I set with FULL diamond armour, and gear, and started to dig. I never usually have any trouble mining, so I thought I'd be pretty safe wearing it all.
I got so far along and uncovered a lava pool at feet level, so started to brick it off so I could continue on my way.
But no, a creeper and skeleton tag team took care of smashing that ill-placed confidence, and launched me into said lava.
Angry was an understatement.
Having moaned considerably in the in-game chat about my misfortunes, a thoughtful and kind soul took pity on me... that soul was LadyEh.
I was invited to swing by her place, and when I got there, she very graciously gave me an ENTIRE set of diamond gear. Full armour, the lot. As well as 1 stack of diamonds as a bonus.
Speechless was not the word to describe how I felt. I couldn't thank her enough.
As soon as I get an opportunity, I shall forward this kindness on to someone else who is in need, as I were.
This is what I love about SixtyGig. The community spirit.
I've only been here 2 months, and already, I feel like I've been here forever, surrounded by friends I've known for years.
