A Full Bed Bunkhouse is suitable for mining teams of 6 - 12 members, and is easily built as an expansion of the Three Bed Bunkhouse. Living arrangements are spartan, but effective, for a team dedicated to working a shared mineshaft. Close quarters bring opportunities for further collaboration.

minetest icon in 3D

I recently came accross Goxel and I am getting a kick out of it. Goxel is a 3D voxel editor, essentially an image editor built around cubes, much as Minetest is a game built around cubes.

Undercore is gone. Maybe for good. It's unclear whether the dimensional rift that winked my world out of existence was caused by a black hole. If it was - there won't be any going back.

Shame about the Sapp family. Carolyn lost her husband, invested everything she had into his memorial …

The Temples

"What about this one?" Epoh asked Sherip, as they approached the Temple of Great Wisdom. Sherip laughed gently.

"There have been so many great and wise teachers of men," he said, shaking his head, "and how little difference it has made. Let's keep on."

Spite Town

An interview with Bernard Warbly

Wos: Do you consider yourself the mayor of Spite Town?

Bernard: "The mayor of Spite Town!?" That's a bit of a stretch. I just wanted my neighbors to quit messin' with my lawn.

Wos: I've never heard of people intentionally ruining their neighbor's lawn before …

Trying to plan good Minetest builds with normal image editors got on my nerves. Tiny, icon-sized pixel-art isn't great for describing imaginary life-sized buildings. Pencil and graph-paper worked alright for mazes, but... flash back to the 1980s!

Wait, am I being snarky again?

Luckily, the Minetest game textures are easily …

Cobblestone castles

Fri 29 December 2017By Wos

 

I've been traveling a bit, seeing the homes people build. You know what's common? Cobblestone castles. Great cubes of grey, often surrounded by treacherous pits and partially felled trees. Occasional chunks of gold and diamond meant to suggest that the owner is somehow "rich."

People who want to be impressive …
