I think it has retro appeal. But I play with friends.
So buddy tells me “go find a sheep and shear it for wool”. I walk around a lot one way, and find a… dog? Wolf? I tried shearing it, then I tries using the shears another way, and ended up hitting it. It won’t stop following, so I had to kill the thang. Next time I go out to find wool, I go the other way, and find people’s houses with animals outside; I check the shears to see if it works, but I can’t pick up the wool… So then, I go past a house with fire on the roof (as ambience?). I fell down a hole, and heard, “Baaaa”. Looked up and saw a sheep stranded on a pixelated square above me. So I build about 3 ways out with dirt, and plopped torches all over the place, then stalked it with shears. All through the night. Killed an 8-bit spider monster. When it resets its wool the pixelated grass underneath it disappears. Eh?
Broke my axe digging the sheep out, but buddy was gone for the night IRL, so no repairs. Plus, it flew away somewhere. Couldn’t find it. Then I come back to the house I’m sharing. The silly chicken that flew out of the egg my buddy threw (I thought he tossed out a chicken from nowhere… had no clue what he was doing, I’m new after all… looked hilarious) popped out 2 more eggs while running around all over the place. But the dog won’t follow you. Barks a lot.
If you don’t watch it, apparently you can create a waterfall in a house when u upend a bucket.
Looks interesting, but a pain to undo.
Let’s see, what else.
I have some slimeballs, and bones. And rotten flesh. Oh yeah, he took me to the nether. WHY DO THE PIG ZOMBIES sound like children?! “Don’t hit the pigs.” “Why?” ” ‘Cause they’ll own you…” “What about the ghasts? “Kill them.”
Buddy has a monster pit trap in his basement next to a monster spawn. Interesting, thwapping away without the consequences.
…aaand I enchanted a sword. It’s extra sharp now, cause I have a sharpness enchant.
Not bad for a first day. Buddy’s staff at the server, so he can fly. In an 8-bit suit. Dunno why he chose a suit; he’s not a suit IRL…
That’s it for my first day minecrafting. Better go check and see if that wacky 8-bit chicken plopped out any more eggs…
