Just in case folk are looking (I’ll post on Reddit too) there will be no official open run tonight. I think my port’s still forwarded, so feel free to see if I’m around, but between me forgetting that it’s Monday and not feeling particularly well, I didn’t want to commit to a full run. reschedule TBA.
I kinda fell off the face of the earth in terms of updating various blogs and journals. Sometimes real life (and chronic illness, unfortunately) catches up with me. I want to post on Monday’s server run (it was quiet due to problems with new settings in the updated Plug PE) and take pics of the various things 576875 and Swarmhut have been building. I’ll get around to those posts at some point, but here’s the big exciting news – aside from retail spaces and the food court 576875 is building on the mezzanine, Grand Central is finished! It’s going to … continue
One of my MCPE builds on Fisher Price® My First Creative World™ was a giant zombie. It was a challenge figuring out what color blocks to use, and working around the fact that unlike skins, blocks have the same texture on all four sides.

Fast forward to my infinite world, and a pretty patch of shoreline … continue
All right, Crazy Busy-making Stuff is over with for a moment, so time to catch up on posts about my MCPE builds!

It gave me something to do with the dead flat mountain space on the main subway line between the Crystal Palace and the Castle. I’d briefly considered starting a giant train station build there but I think that’s ultimately going to go north of the castle. Anyway. Pictures! Carving stairways … continue
Well, after getting the domain and port forwarding right and figuring out FINALLY how to switch the main world back to Survival (I’ll post a tutorial on both later), I posted a “hey my world’s open, come visit!” notice on /r/MCPE this evening. I wasn’t expecting too many visitors – hell, I would have been happy if one person showed up. Happily I had four, and to those four, especially /u/Palcto and /u/EclipseSun, I say thank you for making my first MCPE server run pretty epic. Sadly the allotted 3h of game was cut a little short by an incoming call … continue
