I'm Just showing off now :D
Now I know I may have been boring half of you to death by droning on about the world I am building for my nieces. but I have said a couple of times now that I will share some pictures so if your allergic to gaming posts I recommend a good hearty dose of antihistamines or a speedy exit.
For those of you who don't know minecraft is a sandbox game you have to survive in the world generated using the resources available by farming, mining etc you have everything from wood to obsidian it's just living long enough to find it that's the hard part. My favorite aspect of the game is building and decorating as you do have to challenge yourself to be creative and use the materials imaginatively. The lap top you can see in the first picture was made using an item frame and a piece of rail track.
Here is the farm house I finished last night with the roof I excitedly whittered on about in this mornings musing
(And now I'm looking at the picture I can see I'm going to have to make a small tweak to the front of that gable and change a window and wrap the dark strip over the front door. grrr that's going to bug me until i can get on to fix it)
Well that's enough for now but i'm chuffed the Teen showed me how to take these pictures I'll try not to bore you all with them too much.
