OH MY GOSH

So I was in the Nether looking for Quartz. Got a bunch of stacks of the stuff, was about to mine another deposit when suddenly BAM! Ghast blast and I'm flying straight into a huge pool of lava.

Had full health + fire resistance on one of my pieces of armor, so thankfully, I was able to dig my way out of the lava and survive the burn.

MAN! That was close.

Well I did it again on my way back. Was trying to dig out a new, safer path back so I could avoid ghasts more easily, accidentally moved too quickly and fell into a huge pool of lava. Once again narrowly escaped death by quickly digging out.

This time, I got myself lost trying to find my way back to my normal Nether areas, and next thing I knew, I found what I believe to be Forest Spirit's territory.

To put it simply, he makes my stuff look like child's play.

the nether can be a rough place, i tried to make a bridge to new land once but gave up due to ghasts ended up tunneling my way out there. quartz thankfully seems quite abundant once you find map generating it ..... we need a rail line connecting the nether bases

Plashy and I have rail lines connecting our bases. Makes travel between our territories extremely quick. I also have tunnels connecting me to Joe's Nether base. Right now, because I found all my quartz near a new Nether Fortress, I'm working on building a worthwhile tunnel to this fortress, then I'm going to build a portal there and have a secondary overworld base region.

I've successfully managed to wander far enough in the Nether to cause brand-new world generation in the Overworld. Planted me right on top of the canopy of a Roofed Forest biome.

It's going to take a LOT of rail and resources to build a proper minecart tunnel all the way back to my Nether hub. If some tracks and high efficiency + unbreaking pickaxes could be spared to assist me in the process, we could have a transit method set up before too long and be able to utilize this new land. The newer biomes are rich in new resources (new types of flowers, emeralds, etc). I don't intend to travel far in this new land yet, not at least until after the 1.8 update so we can obtain new world generation objects fairly easily after that.

Man I've been out of it the past few weeks.

Cheers me up to hear to hear updates to buildings and exploration on the servers.



Yeah, but in the meanwhile, I'm seriously lost in the Nether. Really going to need a team to clear the path.

I can be back on after this weekend to help out, i can get to joes warps pretty easy from mine... dont have any spare rail at this time though ... can donate some iron/ pick axes and time

I actually was hoping Nibiru wouldn't be updated. Can't fly in 1.7.8+.
