Featured Pictures

We decided to start doing these posts because they were simple, quick, and, in some cases, pretty darn cool. It all started when Jonah was working on his Daylight Savings Time post and a chicken was getting in his way. Since he was on a Superflat map, he decided to dig a hole to make Mr. Chicken fall through. He took some pictures just because and thought that it could make a quick, simple post on that. That is how Featured Pictures got started.

When I was working on my Daylight Savings Time post I was having a little disagreement with cows, sheep, and one lone chicken. This dumb chicken was interrupting my wonderful work so I decided to get rid of him.

I was playing a bit of Minecraft on Superflat one day. I also re-downloaded the Mo’ Explosives mod. I looked for a village to blow up and I put some bundled C4 all over the village. Well…after I put down about 25 or so blocks, something happened. I don’t know how but I accidentally detonated one of the blocks.

I was looking around on the internet, trying to come up with an idea for a cool post when I found a neat Minecraft blog and found some awesome pictures on there. One picture in particular struck me as being super awesome.

I went to THE END one day just for fun. I had already killed the dragon and decided to kill a crap load of Endermen. They deserve it. I hit one and then it started to follow me. I hit another and the both were following me. I hit 40 more and then there were 42 Endermen following me.

Tyler, Riley, and I were playing on our server and we decided to have a few battles between one another. Here is one of the battles. For the record, these battles were fought on equal terms. Just swords and bows, no enchantments, all diamond armor/weapons. Let’s see who won.

In this two-part post Tyler, Riley, and myself created 2 different TNT creations.

This one was masterminded by Riley. It isn’t so much a creation so much as throwing TNT in every direction.

In this two-part post Tyler, Riley, and myself created 2 different TNT creations.

The second was masterminded by Tyler who saw it fit to pay tribute to our “favorite” mob.

I was playing on one of the Hunger Games servers and encountered a small problem. First of all, I was on a map with very few animals and therefore food. Secondly, it was a map with either very very little iron, or no iron. That’s just a slight problem there. The worst part is that I found diamond. Well you see, you can’t mine diamond without an iron pick. So when you find 6 diamonds with no sufficient pick to mine them with, it is like Notch is giving you the middle finger.

In my house above a hill, I built a giant mob arena. I was hoping that mobs would spawn inside on their own but they are refusing so I have held some “small” battles between Mobs, Iron Golems, and myself. It is a very nice arena. There is also a fail safe switch so if there are too many mobs or if I get bored I can press and voila, no more mobs.

I was playing on one of the Hunger Games servers (I lost by the way, I was killed mere seconds before I could craft a stone sword) and upon entering the server I was walking around like I usually do to see if anyone had some cool skins. Today, I found something kind of cool.

I was on Cobble Town for no reason whatsoever. I didn’t do a darn thing and I was on for maybe 2 minutes so I have no idea why I even wasted my time going on there. But, I did get a good featured pictures post. So, I was down in my underground base and was about to head back up in my “water elevator” when I found that I had a stalker. What’s another name for a stalker? Yes, a creeper.

I was checking out a new server the other day, well it actually isn’t new, I made a post on it before but I will be posting an update on the server in the next couple days. While on this server, I encountered a chicken that had a deep desire to fly. He actually succeeded.

On the Kool-Craft server there is a volcano that someone made. Kinda cool, check it out.

So I have had every farm possible in Minecraft; wheat, melon, even a pumpkin farm. Except for one. I haven’t had a Nether wart farm, until now. In Kool-Craft, someone was giving out free Nether wart stalks. I got two, and now it has grown to much more than two. Soon, I will begin brewing potions.

Here I am looking for something to write a post about and I found this neat thing on Minecraft Forum. Look at it.

This is an arena that Tyler and Riley made a long time ago on Riley’s server. I think it is kinda cool. We tested it out one time, it was a lot of fun.



Published on July 8, 2012 by Tyler

Riley and I had a bit of fun on his server. He had found a nice little village on the side of a cliff, and we are on a mission to build this village up, Pimp-my-Minecraft style.

A while ago, I was working on my bread machine and a couple creepers blew up and damaged part of my machine. Furious, I decided to go get some revenge. I created a “God Sword” and started spawning a ton of creepers. I slaughtered them left and right, one, however, managed to survive, but he was trapped in a hole, with no escape, just waiting to die.

Tyler, Riley, and I all share a great love of burning things in Minecraft, especially Tyler. Wherever we go, fire is sure to follow. Jungles burn, villages are decimated, and animals die in a raging inferno. But, this time, we didn’t start the fire.

Moses, leader of the Israelites. Jonah, leader of the chickens. I spawned a very large amount of chickens one day and then led them along carrying a piece of wheat. If only I could make them do my bidding…

On the prison server that Tyler and Riley introduced me to, I got an enchanted diamond pick with Efficiency 4 and Unbreaking 3. A pick with such a high efficiency can cut through many blocks like they were made of paper, including netherrack. One of the mines on the server is filled with netherrack, so I decided to go empty out that mine.

I was cruising the internet and I came upon some really cool things, screenshots of some really epic creations. Seeing as some of these are just epic, I thought that I would show you a picture of one, with a little description perhaps. Here are 6 awesome creations that I found.



Published on August 17, 2012 by Jonah

We know that Minecraft 1.3.2 came out yesterday in replacement of a 1.4 snapshot. However, there are a couple screenshots released by Jeb that preview the upcoming snapshot. And they look a bit interesting.



Published on September 24, 2012 by Jonah

I’m sure it’s happened to everyone sometime. You create a new world and you spawn underwater or some other crazy place that you don’t really want to be at. Well, when I was testing a mod once, I created a new world and spawned in a very strange place. It was very dangerous and potentially lethal place to be if I wasn’t careful.



Published on September 26, 2012 by Jonah

Recently, when I was playing on the latest snapshot, I was testing out all the new sounds. That included testing out the new sounds that Endermen make when they are aggravated. So, I punched an Enderman, and, believe it or not, he got angry at me. Being the smart person that I am, I was playing on Creative mode, and I started to fly away. He kept on following me though. Except he wasn’t very smart one time.



Published on September 27, 2012 by Jonah

I was playing Minecraft a few weeks ago…I can’t even remember for sure what I was doing (I think I was testing a mod)…and I came upon a horrible sight.



Published on September 29, 2012 by Jonah

So, you know how Mojang made it so that fire spreads faster based on your difficulty? Well, I wanted to test that out, so that’s how this happened. I couldn’t say for sure how low my FPS went. Considering that I was playing on the snapshot and didn’t have Optifine and was playing on Far render distance, I would say I had to be at about 5 frames per second, maybe less. Fun, right?

While I was trying out a mod recently I found a cool looking moment. When you are submerged in lava, you can still see, just not as well. Of course, everything looks red too. So, when I was submerged in lava I looked up to the sky and it was kind of cool. I thought it was picture worthy anyway…

While playing on my island a few days ago, I ran into my house because it was night and the monsters are scary. Traditionally, Creepers have the reputation of creeping on people. But this time, a skeleton was creeping on me. And you guys know how much I hate skeletons.

I was playing some Tekkit a few days ago and was doing some good ol’ fashioned mining when I saw something really cool. Do you know how if you are mining really fast or if you have some lag you might see through the world, kind of like an x-ray mod? You’ll see all the mines and lava pools and cool stuff like that. Well, this time, I was mining above me, and I saw through the world. I must say, it was pretty cool.

Tyler had the idea of starting something new on this blog, a Random Minecraft Project of the month. Now, while I can’t guarantee that we are going to build something new every month, we are doing something for this month. A while ago (nearly 3 and a half months ago to be exact), Tyler and I talked about starting a new project. This project is…a Sky Castle!



Published on October 19, 2012 by Jonah

Tyler and I were on a server a while ago while we were waiting to get a server of our own. On this Tekkit server, I was walking around a bit to see if I could find any rubber trees. I couldn’t find any rubber trees, but I did find that someone had a little accident earlier.

I hope everyone had a good Halloween. But, I also hope that you didn’t eat too much candy and have some crazy dream or something. I ate quite a few cookies in Minecraft that night, and I had the weirdest and most horrifying dream ever. I was watching the Minecraft news when they started talking about how Disney bought Lucasfilm and that a new Star Wars movie was going to come out in a few years. Then they showed this picture.



Published on November 3, 2012 by Jonah

Let’s just say that I was bored while playing Tekkit for once. I didn’t know what I should build next, so I decided to make a little tribute to the coolest superhero ever. And do you know why? BECAUSE HE’S BATMAN!



Published on November 9, 2012 by Tyler

I decided to move from my present home in Tekkit to another more suitable location. It is still a work-in-progress but I think it looks really good so far. For once I’ve managed to build a house, that looks modern, with very little wood involved. I call that progress.

We have a new series starting tomorrow. But here’s the thing. It isn’t going to be a Survival series…it’s going to be something  even better, in my opinion. The new series is going to take place here.



Published on November 23, 2012 by Jonah

Our Tekkit world went over a bit of a makeover. All of us had basically become as technologically advanced as we could, and there were some arguments about what we should be able to use. Because of all that, we decided to start a new world and to live together this time.

I want to show you what Jonah, Riley and I have managed to do today. We’ve been playing together, pooling our skills and ideas together to work together on projects. Today, we worked on revamping some things to make  our “Compound” look nice.

Hello everyone! A few days ago when I was playing on Survival Island, I noticed something out of the ordinary.



Published on December 17, 2012 by Jonah

Today I decided to show off some of my builds that I have made for the Christmas/winter season. I think I did an okay job on all of them, but there are some that I think are just awesome.

Here is a preview of a future post. We will be having another Creative build post and we made quite a few new items. Tyler was making a replica of his Minecraft skin and was having a bit of trouble.

Happy Birthday Blog! If there are any of you out there that are faithful readers, do you remember what the first post was? Well Tyler and I were trying to think of post ideas, plus it was Christmas, so were throwing ideas all over the place.


UNDERWATER VILLAGE2012-12-29_22.42.58

Published on December 29, 2012 by Jonah

I have decided to show you what Tyler, Riley and I have been doing recently. For the last week or so we have been working on a new map, another Superflat map. Now we aren’t going to make this a new series, but I just wanted to show how cool it is. Because we are playing in the Waterworld preset.
