  • The Citadel
    • Added a small mess hall to the northern barracks in Westhill. The build was already framed, and attached to the barracks, so not much planning was needed.
    • The mess hall needed some storage for food and other stuffs which fit nicely behind the mess, up against the north curtain wall.

  • Empires, Season 2
    • Completed the copper aging machine, and moved on to decorating it so that it fits in with the “catacombs” style of the rest of the area.
    • Raided an Ancient City with iJevin from the Hermitcraft crew, with very different approaches!
    • Empires SMP hosted a segment of Love Tropics, raising money for Project Seagrass, creating an “Empire of the Viewers” in a cleared out ocean biome.

FROM: General Sweetpants
SUBJECT: Chiseled Bookshelves Power Levels

Greetings Pix and Joel,

Thinking about chiseled bookshelves, shouldn’t they hold eight books to stick with the binary theme of Minecraft? More could be done with the power levels this way. Chiseled bookshelves could increase in power output whenever a book is added starting at 1, then increasing by 2 each additional book (3, 5, 7, etc. on to 15). When a book is removed, the first book would drop 1 level, then each subsequent book would decrease by 2 (15 to 14, then 12, 10, 8, etc to 0). Even sticking with 6 books, this seems like a more usable way to manipulate the power levels of chiseled bookshelves. The fun that could be had making combination locks would be great!

Thanks for your time and all that you do.

General Sweetpants was blown up by a creeper thinking the sound was coming from a stream, and not his game.
