You can dig strait down. Just use a map program to see whee the caves (and lava) aren't and your good. I use this method it find diamonds.

I don't know what your base looks like, but a two block high, lighted perimeter wall does wonders for keeping creepers from wrecking your main base. Stick ladders on it so you can climb over, and make sure there aren't any dark spaces between it and your base, and you're all set.

I did this in my Minecraft world because I kept getting ambushed right outside my door by creepers. I'd seriously open the door, walk out, and BOOM!... there goes my door and the surrounding area of my house.

It's a nice way to see what you've accomplished (I don't use it), but I frown upon 3rd party programs that give you any sort of ingame advantage.

Does Minecraft run better downloaded or in your browser? I've actually had the game crash a few times playing in browser and I really haven't played much downloaded.

I play downloaded because music doesn't work for me in browser, and it hasn't crashed yet, while I would consistently crash in Classic multiplayer in browser.

I freaking love minecraft. The multiplayer is weird at times, but a lot of that has some to do with finding a good persistent server. A Gametoast server would be great.

Do you play consistently on a certain server? I might join you.

New playthrough would be cool to watch?

How did you dig straight down and keep such a nice mine? I always run into dirt and limestone and natural caves which destroy my symmetric mine shaft.

Your voice sounds pretty good, so keep up with commentaries.

Better, if you can get past the voice, the incompleteness, and one F-bomb.

Me or 501st? I'm guessing it's me, but the f-bomb part is throwing me off, because I don't remember saying something like that.

Must. Buy. Now. What's not to love about a game that lets you be a literal god?

And here's what'd be fun: Coruscant in minecraft.

If we set up a server? YES. Imagine survival on Coruscant in Multiplayer?
