I figured we could use this as an all purpose fact finding thread as we build out.

I'm curious as to the owner of what looks to be an abandoned diamond/ore mining operation north of the Money Bin and due west of Tori's old place. I found two single block wide shafts that go down in roughly 10-20 ft lengths.

One ends in a blank wall and the other opens up into several branching paths. The second branching one was entirely unlit (except for two random torches) and had a workbench.

I walled off the more expansive mine at the surface, but there is the potential for slime formation down there as I didn't have the torches or time to explore it thoroughly.

I found a few shafts like that too. Kinda odd really. My guess was someone using an x-ray theme was hunting something specific.

We had a few "visitors" before we added the whitelist. The shaft Ely is describing was one of theirs.

Alright. I'll grab some torches and cacti at some point to booby trap it just in case. I'll clear out the remaining resources while I'm down there.

There's 3x64 cactus in a chest in my Theatre Portakabin you can have. I used to have a cactus farm but I demolished it when I landscaped around the library. The mobtrap also creates cactus (albeit slowly) - check in the storage room chests.

I am not saying she is engaged in small-scale mining operations for precious metals, but I have never seen her associate with any gentlemen of African American origin who are suffering financial embarrassment.

bobsky has a cactus farm as well. It's between spawn and the passive trap somewhere along that corridor.

We have a cactus farm too. It's by our "T" ranch north of the Money Bin. You can see it East of the big "T" in map.

It's the best thing since sliced bread the mob trap.

I'm going to devour the island-ish thing that sits directly under 640, 0 (spreading to about -130 at its farthest east and 300 at its farthest northwest).

I've just learnt that grey and RowdyScott have plans to the southeast of this landmass, but my selection doesn't appear to intrude. It's not going to interfere with anyone else, is it?

Thunderpoit/InvaderJak,

I saw an opportunity for maximizing the space efficiency of the watering system for your farm in bridgeport and moved some dirt around/removed a sliver of a wall -- i hope you don't mind...

thinking about it, I do believe the best bet for further enhancement is to lower the level of the farm terraces themselves by two or three blocks which should put most, if not all, of the water system under the undisrupted sidewalk. NB also, the current arrangement can be further optimized by an additional bifurcation level that spits water out at the base of the walls without incurring any height disadvantage, you would just need to alternate the position of the fill channels.

I understand the need to be able to reset the watering system and i think that sinking the level of the terraces might give you additional space for doing that from the inside...

I think Bobsky was trying to help me out: in it's current form the auto-harvester means I'll need to take out the window on that side of the theatre. Is it going to get smaller and prettier?

There must be a way to put it below the sidewalk. This is Minecraft! Challenges are what it's all about!

Maybe inside the farm with the reset at glass level? Better to rejigger the top far end of the farm than messing with the sidewalk and the theatre. IMO, of course.

So it goes.

I was trying to help both of you out...

The only fair option, right now even with the current modifications, is to get rid of the hideous protrusion that is the water delivery apparatus since it directly interferes with pre-existing structures and the old method worked fine. My brief and obvious work on it last night was merely to see if it could be kept in its current arrangement without too much extra effort: it cannot and should not be.

I understand that and i have no intention of leaving the flooder as is. It will be below the sidewalk when finished, i was just not able to get on last night to complete it.

Nah, we could just use the old blackball system. Snowball for yes, slimeball for no.

Too bad snowballs and slimeballs dont slime you or cover you with snow, that'd be fun

On my new southern territory, there is a structure at XYZ 493, 66, 136. I assume it's just a usual adventure-night hideout, but it's pretty built up for such a place and I just wanted to check to make sure no one has any attachment to it.

At the top of a hill overlooking a lava fall? And beach?

No, not on a hill, but yes on a beach. It's just beside the water, sort of built up like an incomplete mini-fort, made of cobble and dirt.

Also: I only just learned about coordinate teleporting and didn't consider that when I posted, so teleport to those coordinates at your own risk.
