This is a work in progress as I attempt playing one of the Super Hostile series. This map is so amazing and fun and really gives me the challenge I've been missing.
I'm finally setup to survive (which took a number of frustrating deaths) so I'm exploring around trying to fill up the victory monument...
UPADTE: Almost there! Only 5 more wool blocks to find. Tons of diamonds and iron now. Still a little low on food but setup a farm once I figured out that in 1.6.6 you can make wild grass grow by using bone meal. That let me get seeds and start growing wheat.
UPDATE: Find the Gray Wool!! It's the only one left!!
I am trying to build a good world in hardcore mode and this is what I have come up with so far. The world spawned me in a Taiga right next to a desert. The base is a wooden cabin. I have a large tunnel system under the wooden cabin. There are large walls surrounding the wooden cabin as well as some chests with all my materials in them. There is an above ground tunnel system to the south of the cabin with two entrances, a connector to the tunnel system under the cabin, and two entrances to the wall surrounding the cabin as well as a snow farm. My newest addition to the world is a snow field (that I placed in the dessert for the irony) that is set up for capture the flag on a server. Please notify me if you have any ideas of what else to add to the world.
