MC - South Castle update

Pottering along in our Minecraft Realm yesterday afternoon (amongst washing clothes and putting away camping crap), I managed to do quite a lot to South Castle.

I'm mostly sold with the idea of making it an airship/balloon dock/travel nexus. I'm going to make a new Airship over the top of it, with sheep-farmed wool. I'm going to create a new sheep farm with multi-coloured wool (you can dye sheep) for the purpose.

Rolling with Lack Of Inc

Lack of Inc, controlled by criminal CEO EvilMattW is new in town and has mixed fortunes. Here's what it's like to roll with EMW for an evening.

I almost lost patience with Hitman...I was really struggling to get to grips with the mentality behind it, and whenever I looked for help I would come across videos of people doing perfect runs, elegantly slipping through lines of sight, and getting massive scores. I was clearly useless...

MC - Survival help posts

So, I keep being stuck out in the wilderness and short of something or other. Sometimes armour. Sometimes I need a furnace and have no cobble. Or a bed. Christ, the number of times I've needed a bed. While playing MC with Felix, I started having a play with an idea for a Survival Help Post (needs a better name). It's a compact thing that I'm going to start sticking on hills. It's quite expensive in terms of iron but we have butt-tonnes of that (even taking rail into account).
