That's where I went. My little island base is a short boat ride (and even shorter Nether jaunt) from the jungle teleport point.

I take it you're the one who dug that mine? I'm actually impressed at how long those tunnels are.

Only mine I've dug is the one under my base. I saw the one by the jungle teleporter, but that wasn't me.

Hi all! I imagine this is the thread discussing the Minecraft server?

I have been trying to get into it, but I seem to be a bit confused as to the current state of affairs. There's a rather nice looking town, and a "King's Road" some ways away. Are there some kind of rules as to where people can build stuff and where they can farm? Just asking so I don't interfere in anyone's business.

You can pretty much go anywhere that someone hasn't obviously already claimed and start work. The closer you are to Spawn, the less likely it is to get stuff done, even mining, due to all the above and below ground construction.

If you really want a clear area to go nuts in, go into the subway (bottom most level) and take the teleporter to the distant jungle/lagoon. From there you can head out in pretty much any direction and have fresh, untapped biomes to explore and build in.

Edit: When were the villagers at spawn re-organized? Whoever did this, you are my hero.

Well, Tannhauser42's certainly been busy. I took a break from Minecraft last year so I still haven't really established my "real" base of operations. I think I'll do some exploring this weekend.

Edit: And I've found it. A sprawling village located a fair distance from the teleporter. It's near the boarder of three different biomes, has a gaping chasm running through it, and even a farm sitting atop a snowy mountain. Now I need to look at some videos for inspiration on how to expand the village as well as how I'm going to do my lair. Hmmm... probably should have brought the mats for a nether portal before I decided to plant my flag. :/

Edit 2: Well, I sunk a mine and finally hit a lava patch. After flooding it with a bucket of water, mining the obsidian, and making myself a nether portal, this is what greeted me on the other side.

Spoiler:

Oh, my portal is on top of a mountain, not in my mine, so it's a looooong way down to the bottom. Anyway, how do I go about getting a footpath constructed from my portal to the nether portal at the jungle lagoon teleporter? Seriously. I don't even know where to start.

I was giving the FTB Unstable 1.16 modpack a try (see the modded thread), but unfortunately it eats CPU cores for breakfast. I've stopped the FTB Unstable pack now if it's affecting the Vanilla Minecraft server. I might try it again if an update is released that reduces the CPU usage.

Oh, good, it wasn't just me that thought it was slow yesterday.

Anyway, just did a little cautious exploring of the Nether. Found one of them blackstone fortresses not too far away. Accidentally broke several blocks of gilded blackstone before realizing I wasn't using my Silk Touch pickax. But, found several chests up top of it and got a bunch of it, along with a Pigstep music disc.

Just now seeing this a week later, so you've probably already figured it out. But, you can do what I did. Inside the Nether, I built my portal and tunnel at the top, just below the roof. It's usually solid up there, so usually safe to make a tunnel. I tunneled my way to the main road in the Nether leading to the bamboo jungle portal, and then tunneled straight down to connect via ladder to that road.

Anyway, I just spent a very productive day. Built a road network on my island, and built a proper tunnel in the Nether to my portal in there. One trick I learned from watching a Youtube video was to built the road using slabs, and under the center line of the road I have soul sand. Lets me zoom along my road quite nicely with the Soul Speed III enchantment on my boots.

Nah, I'm building a rail tunnel in the overworld. I'm nearly halfway to the teleporter. I haven't done much of anything in the Nether yet.

Interesting. I was planning on using a typical rail cart. I'll have to watch some videos on the Nether.

I dug the west tunnel out to the new spawn portal area and put a track in most of the tunnels are mine, I've had to replace my girls armor twice now. feel free to grab any cinnabuns I missed

6k blocks sounds right. 2 days to dig it and form a path. a week or two to make it 3x3 and put in the floor, a couple more days for the train track. then it drops to y8 or 12 and goes on even further from the blasting

I skipped the walls and celing, I like the open feel and the tunnel west is a bit cramp

Lol. I'm 3/4th the way of a 10k-ish tunnel. 3x3 with track in the middle and a long row of blocks on either side of the track. I'm tunneling right on top of the bedrock so I'm hitting a lot of lava pockets. I've gotten pretty good at not dying to surprise lava in my face.

I don't know how but someone decided to do their mining right in the path of my subway tunnel.

Whoever has their mining operation at -48933/x/181 (-ish), please be aware that my high speed rapid transit system is going to be bisecting your depleted mine.

I'm still stunned that this even happened given how few people are out in this section of the Overworld.

Anyway, sorry for any inconvenience.

Had me worried for a second that it could be my base you were tunneling through. Just logged on to check, and my base is around -47700 / 1000.

Travel time from the teleporter to my base is ~20 min each way.

I had an idea of making my subway a nice tube of polished Diorite but there's no way in hell now. 10,000 Polished Diorite x 8 rows = way more Diorite than I'm willing to mine, much less install. Hahahahh!

If you can get it to the jungle teleporter (or even normal spawn if that's closer) that'd be great.

Didn't someone have a Prismarine farm set up? I need to make a bunch of Sea Lanterns.

There is a guardian farm... near one of my bases, Sacred Mountain. If you take the nether tunnels to there it's like the next-door portal.

A sign at spawn should point you towards Lady Dria's ( I think that's the name) prismarine farm. I visited it. Holy hell was it massive. You could rebuild everything at spawn out of prismarine and not use up half of what was stored in there.

The sign itself is on the board by the nether portal and subway entrance in front of spawn. Having had to go to the farm myself yesterday, I can be more specific and say you'll need to go down the west tunnel in the nether to find lady dria's base.
Be warned, it may get a bit laggy when you first enter the farm.
