PROJECT 19: MORE ANIMAL FARMS

   
Project coordinates: X +206 : Y +66 : Z +111/151
Date completed: 24 July 2015
Minecraft day completed: 3348

When this project and the next few were first broadcast to the general public, 2nd September 2015 had just been and gone, marking an entire year since 1.8 was released, with the next major update still nowhere near completion. Sinclair's Foundry was created in early October 2014 and so, by this stage, was almost a year old in real terms - but in Minecraft-day terms, was approaching the magic day 3652 - an entire decade in-game. I count day 0 as 1st January 2000, and as 2000 wasn't a leap year but 2004 and 2008 were, it's taken two extra days on top of the 365 × 10 to reach 1st January 2010 in the game. And so, like Iron Maiden did in 1990, I had a "First Ten Years" celebration, comprising the projects from this one to number 25.

The focus of these projects was automatic and semi-automatic food farms. We've already got wheat being churned out by the bucketload, a semi-automatic Cattle Grid which has been fixed recently, and Spectrum Tower has housed an unseen (and very rudimentary) automatic chicken farm, which can certainly be improved upon.

For now, though, with the Cattle Grid finally fixed, it just needs to be cloned a couple of times for pigs and sheep, then I'll have a ready supply of lamb chops, bacon and extra wool. And, as expected, both of these farms are part of Seymour's remit which is best explained at the end of Project 13; I don't need to show any more screenshots of Seymour games this time!
