Project coordinates: X +206 : Y +66 : Z +131
Date completed: 10 March 2015
Minecraft day completed: approx. 2700

On we go to the first of the automated agricultural machines. For the obligatory reference to the Sinclair world, I was planning to allocate most of The Yolkfolk to these automated farms, but in the end I opted for Dizzy's "real world counterpart", Seymour - mainly because of the cowboys-an'-injuns-themed second game, Wild West Seymour. After all, it wasn't all shootouts in the saloon with the sheriff arresting everyone who wasn't dead, most frontier life was about herding cows and growing the odd field of grass.

Do not despair, though, Diz will be making an appearance very soon. Likely as not, what I plan to do with the Yolkfolk is name a load of horses after them. Seven Yolkfolk (Dizzy, Daisy, Denzil, Dylan, Grand Dizzy, Dora and Dozy) for the horses, Pogie can be the donkey, and Theo, I suppose, could be the mule. But that's a project for the future - I don't even know where the stables will be yet, and the room around the village is running out!

Talking of which, take one last look at the ruined village as it is, because the bulldozers, diggers and one allegedly-helpful creeper are about to move in. Here is where the detailed story of Sinclair's Foundry really starts - this build, and those in the future, will show snapshots of the construction as well as the finished article.

This farm has been updated: see Project 18: Fixing The Holes. And, until this much-needed rehash, this project was originally known as Cowpoke Seymour's Beef Batterer, which should at least explain the final screenshot.
