This is the world we started, feel free to explore and reinvent. Best played in creative mode, not yet set up for survival or adventure. Stay tuned though!
This could go on and on and on forever. We could keep building this world for years. I think we’re getting close to finishing Ocean City. Next project for wmafranz is a haunted mansion filled with traps and monsters. For me, maybe an elevated village in the jungle biome or a city perhaps, with skyscrapers. This is so ridiculously fun, addictive and relaxing. Minecraft is crack.
Our newest addition: wmafranz built a real working cobblestone factory on the peninsula off the main village. On top of it sits the village lighthouse with infinitely rotating lights. He created the lights using: redstone torches, minecart, powered rails, detector rails and redstone lamps as the light source. At the top is a cozy place to sleep, replenish with food and health, weapons as well as an awesome view of the sea and ocean city in the distance. Cobblestone factory was made with piston, redstone, water and lava.
I love our villagers.

With the growing village population, we now have quite a number of iron golems. This would be a good thing, except that rather than spreading out and walking around the village, they congregate in the underground entrance of the transit system, completely blocking the stairs. We had to eliminate a few, but they just spawn again – in the same place. Why?
We are currently working on our city in the sea. Our world happens to have a lot of open sea with pretty deep water in places. So far, we’ve built a VIP lounge complete with computer workstations, and undersea cafe with a curtain of water you can fish out of. We’ve provided chest full of fishing poles, of course. We are figuring out how to create predictable walls of falling water. Like I mentioned before, Minecraft water is bizarre. Here’s another discovery about squid who always get stuck on dry land: when pushing them back to water, make sure they go head first, otherwise, they won’t swim away.
When we first played around with world edit, we removed all the stone blocks on the surface beneath without realizing it. The result – an awesome strange and bizarre cavern. We built a track through it and put a rest stop house in the middle of it, complete with beds and chests full of food, healing potions and weapons – you’ll need them if playing in survival mode. There be monsters here.
