This is a diary I started on a single-player world quite some time ago, but eventually lost motivation for. Regardless, I hope you enjoy reading it.
I woke up in this strange unknown world, not sure how I got here, but the thing I did know was I was gonna be here for a while.
I started gathering some wood as I needed some tools, while walking around I saw some burning trees a bit further away. I decided to investigate and as I suspected the trees grew too closely to lava setting them ablaze
After gathering some materials I decided to find a place were to start building shelter, or at least some storage. After walking a while I encountered a cave that was very steeply going downwards, so I decided to mark it with a big pile of dirt for later investigation.
After finding a nice spot on an open plane to put down a working bench I quickly crafted some basic wooden tools, and went on to get some stone after that to get some decent tools to work with.
I spotted what looked like a small cavern not too far away and decided to get some stone there. However upon investigation it turned out to be a rather large open cave of which most was hidden under ground level. I gathered some stone, and also some coal I found and decided to head back to make new tools.
After creating some stone tools I decided to gather some more stone from my now designated mine, however as I got there night was setting in.
I was stupid to decide to just make a lighted area around my workbench and that I would be fine that way, before I knew it a skeleton was attacking me, eventually knocking me out.
Strangely I woke up again at the place I woke up when I got here, devoid of all my gear, luckily I made a small wooden tower at the location of my workbench so I could easily find it back.
I managed to kill the skeleton this time and quickly decided to craft a stone sword, just in time as suddenly multiple skeletons and zombies started approaching, luckily I managed to kill most of ‘em, before being knocked out yet again.
The night continued on like this, I’ve been knocked out for 3 times now, luckily when dawn finally struck it seemed our neighbourhood skeletons, zombies and spiders left a good amount of resources, so I can now make a bow and have some arrows for it.
Now time to start building an actual shelter…
I’ve survived the night, well sort of, now day has dawned I saw the landscape was damaged thanks to these exploding green creatures, I’ll have to restore that sometime soon.
There were still a few spiders left so I took care of them swiftly with my sword, and then went to gather resources for the house.
Spent the entire day collecting resources for the house, finished it just as darkness hit.
Safely inside the house, I’ve constructed a furnace and used the little coal I had left to cook some meat and smelt some iron. Finally a good meal.
Now we wait until dawn comes…
I’m hearing plenty of zombies and skeletons outside, I hope dawn comes soon, I don’t like this. Well at least I now have a safe shelter, but I should get some glass tomorrow for windows, as this hole I look out through doesn’t protect me very well from arrows.
The sun is finally starting to rise, soon the zombies and skeletons will meet a fiery death, though it seems that these green exploding things (Or creepers as I now call them) are resistant to sunlight, so I’ll have to get rid of them the old fashioned way.
A zombie suddenly appeared in my house, but there’s no way he could’ve gotten in here, hmm this strange land sure has its quirks.
As soon as dawn struck I decided to go gather sand for the windows, and on the way back I gathered some coal, and coincidentally found some iron. After having mined this I headed back to my house to start smelting the sand.
While the sand was smelting I headed out to gather more wood to expand the house a bit, as it was quite small and I had enough of sleeping on the floor.
When I came back I started expanding the house and placed the windows, I also smelted the iron and created some iron tools from it.
I continued building the expansion in the evening but found myself out of cobblestone quickly, I figured not having a roof wouldn’t be a problem as long as the walls were up.
Fuck, I completely forgot spiders can climb walls, I have quickly lined the ceiling with dirt and will replace it with stone the following morning.
Now sleep and wait ’till dawn…
Feeling quite hungry, so my first priority was to find myself some food, luckily some pigs had somehow formed a group so I butchered them and took the meat.
After cooking it all, eating part of it and storing the rest I headed on out to the mine to get some more stone to finish the roof.
After finishing the roof it already started to become night again, luckily due to random annoying sheep I had enough wool to make a bed, so now I finally have a bed woo, anyway, off to bed.
Today I decided the house needed some decent flooring instead of fucking grass, I set out to the forest to gather some wood, replanting every tree I chopped down.
After laying the floors for the house I decided to start working on the roof a bit, I managed to finish the outlines of the sloped roof before running out of wood.
After this I filled up some of the holes the explosions of the creepers left with the sand I had now gathered, and then night fell.
Started working on a pathway to the mine, so I can get there in the night too, even though the pathway won’t be safe for spiders everything else can’t get on it, though I’m gonna need a lot of stone/wood for this project.
Well more work tomorrow…
Uwu, for some reason I keep getting woken up by skeletons and zombies somehow being inside my house, this doesn’t make sense at all.
More work on the walkway to the mine, so far the actual path is done, now for the fencing and lighting posts tomorrow.
Somehow the zombies/skeletons are still able to get into my house, this is seriously impacting my night’s rest.
Spent the entire day working on the walkway to the mine again
Waited too long before heading home, had to fend off quite a lot of monsters in result, anyway back home now, time for sleep.
Pretty uneventful, finished the lighting next to the walkway, and started working on sealing off the entire mine.
Due to sealing off the mine it became somewhat darker so I had to add some lighting, and a zombie managed to scare me shitless, better look more carefully next time.
Seems moving my bed has solved the problem with the monsters finding their way in, odd.
Worked on the mine the entire day again, sealed off most of it now, still need to add windows.
Part of the fence is now finished, need some more wood, spent the entire night mining, sealing off the mine and working on the pathway
