Jan Does Minecraft

26 Jun

So I’ve been working on this  mockery of a Asian village for a while now on the Slash 2 severs run by @frak_you. It started from a picture of a Chinese wall next to a river. From that I built a wall, then a church and it just continued from there.

My villagers worship the man in black. He has a cane, so I also believe he’s a pimp. The rest of the village sprang up around this church.

A huge wheat field, several houses, a well and a pen for animals. Of course, any good village needs a General Store.

My villagers started having children, so I just had to build them a pool. A pool surrounded by diamonds. Because it’s pretty.

After this, I had no clue what to do. So I built a bridge across the water! It seemed like a good idea at the time.

In the picture you can see the garden I then built on the other side of the bridge. At the time I finished the bridge, I really had no idea what to build next. An Asian garden seemed like a great addition to an Asian village, so that’s what I came up with.

After this, I figured that if this was my village, I sure as hell needed a palace.

This was the biggest undertaking yet. Two floors, nearly a dozen rooms, a dungeon and a garden. Lava chandeliers, a throne room, and a library maze top off Jan’s palace.

After this I took a long break from Minecraft. What was there left to do? I should have realized then, but I needed a harbor.

With plenty of warehouses, there’s also a place for the pirates to live before they go out and rob…uh…right, well, it’s got cobwebs and stuff.

There were some struggles, like when @vahete kept hitting me with chickens or @rayfyst filled my pond with…more chickens. The worst was when I used dynamite on a sponge. There was logic behind that I assure you, but the result has been a section of land I can’t fill with water. That section of land is in the middle of my damn harbor, pretty much making the whole thing look stupid, but in my frustration something good came of it. A water tree.

      It is an amazing game, you should definitely try it and just remember if you don’t like survival mode, there’s plenty of creative servers.
