Hello Jonny and Joel. I’m a new listener of the podcast, which is excellent.
My question is about pillagers. Do the new presence of pillager outposts, patrols, and raids dampen your enthusiasm for building in survival?
I’m still a relative novice in Minecraft and protecting a village from pillagers has been challenging, especially with 1.14’s bugs. I wonder if I will need to surround everything I build from now on with walls or moats or other pillager-proof structures. Fending off attacks can be fun, but I can also see them becoming a nuisance after a while.
Thanks for the inspiration and helping me realize there’s a lot more to Minecraft than I first thought.
