I have a fear of heights. It is a rational fear; being high means one could fall...very...very...far. In the beginning of playing Minecraft I used to get a pit in the middle of my stomach when I was up high. It was a normal fear response to being up high but in a game fear can be managed; much like it can in real life for some situations.
This is a picture of my house from up high in Captive Minecraft. I pillared up and then used vines to create a ladder up to Sky Island #1. As you can see I have worked through my fear a bit to be able to use this method. Many a time I have fallen off my pillar and fell in the air a bit until I flail and find it again or fall to my death. "Act don't react." Xena said that in an episode where she was teaching someone how to deal with enemies attacking. I find those words to be sage advice as I am falling. If I do something I might survive, if I freak out...I probably won't.
Here is my home again from a second pillar up to the Burning Island. As you can see I'm in the clouds now and really...really...really...high. That is my house way down there; I was thankful the zombie pigman didn't push me off while I was getting this shot. :)
Captive Minecraft has been a challenge and I really have been enjoying it this week. But much like ESO I made some bad calls. Instead of planting the sugar cane (the one piece I found) I used it to make sugar. I forgot you needed two pieces of sugar to make cake and that has really screwed me up.
In Captive Minecraft you start with one block and a world border all around you. This border moves every time you successfully complete an achievement a half of a square. As you can see messing up one of the achievements can really cost you. So I'm in limbo right now. I'm mining out every piece of block that I can and my goal is to be able to see the world border in every area of my world.
I was worried when my cow suffocated herself in the border, but thankfully, another one was given to me and I was able to corral and breed them.
This is a challenging but fun map. At some point I settled down and made a house and a farm and did all the things that usually do when I play. I figure the achievements will come as they will and I'm not in a rush. In the meantime, I am having a good time.
I just received a villager. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with him yet. :)
Have some knitting in the works but nothing to show yet.
I hope you have a graet week as we go out of Mercury's grip of crazy,
