The Diamond Hammer: Minecraft creations from the host of the Hammer Of Retribution Ogg-Cast

 

PROJECT 43: TWEAKS IN 1.10

   
Project coordinates: n/a
Date completed: 27 November 2016
Minecraft day completed: 5994

With Minecraft 1.11 now released and the world almost ready to be updated on day 6000, this is less of a project and more of a summary of smaller bits and pieces that didn't justify their own project number that were all built during the 1.10 cycle.

There are a number of connected reasons why I've left it this long. 1.10 didn't add to or change enough in Survival Mode to require a load of work behind the scenes to improve the existing creations - only the roof of the mushroom farm was immediately under any threat so the addition of a Nether wart farm to make Video Nasty's Double Fungal Trouble took us up to 39 projects. I wanted project 40 (Time Trax Rune Cube) to be a major build that was worth showing off far and wide, and project 42 (Life, The Universe, and... chocolate) to be an endless string of references to The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. This just left project 41 as the only possible spare number - it was taken by Nether Earth Skull Fields, which was already being built before I'd completed even half of these changes.

So I decided it was best to leave it until the end, and have two projects in succession, this one for the 1.10 tweaks and project 44 for the initial forays in 1.11.

We are all set. Six days of tidying up, followed by the brave new world of 1.11, with its observer blocks, llamas and new villagers - good, evil and stupid. Here come more projects!
