So ive been playing alot of Minecraft lately, and im kinda curious who else does. More importantly... Im wondering what peoples strategies are for semi-cooperative servers are. I run a server, and our goal is to each build a 'base' and gather rescources, while attempting to be the first to reach certain milestones, either as groups or as solo players. i like to have my own base, however i regularly invite players over to go digging for diamonds together, or to make runs into the Neather. It seems like im always 5 steps behind other players however, no matter what i do. I never have the recources they do, except when it comes to food, where i seem to have so much that i cant even store it all. Anyone have any good tips on building up faster? anything i should try to get done early? Lastly, im planning on building a house completely run by redstone, down to the very last drop. Its going to have hidden doors with triple sealed walls, traps, and a hidden control room to control it all. Anyone good with redstone who will be willing to critique and help me improve my designs? i want this house to be the best it can, and ive never attempted a redstone project of this size before, so i may need help making sure it works properly. Thanks in advance!
