I have nothing planned for this weekend. An entire forty-eight hours of nowhere to go, nothing to do, and everything centred around just hanging out to chill.
I'm loving it.
I got to get one episode further through Critical Role, watched some more Umbrella Academy with Beloved and added an ep of MacGuyver because we were out of brainpower for the evening.
I also got to make an interesting discovery about Minecraft.
Old hats at the game will remember the introduction of seeds and how folks could share the really interesting ones. There were memetic seeds like "gargamel" and "cake" - the latter of which was an interesting challenge. I'm pretty sure there was a seed revolving around one of my fave bands, ELO, but I no longer recall what it was.
Anyway. For shits and giggles, I tried looking at one of the old memetic seeds to see what it did these days. The answer is rather interesting to my mind.
I tried using the seed "gargamel" and started the world on a little survival island surrounded by oceans with loads of undersea rifts. The really interesting part is when you turn your back on your waking view and investigate that big-arse island that was once right behind you. On the opposite beach to where you start, there's some masts sticking up out of the earth. These masts lead you to what I call a fossil shipwreck. An entire shipwreck embedded in stone.
I'll let you concoct the story behind that one, but who could ignore such an easy supply of wood and loot to start their minecraft adventure with? Try it now. Tell your friends.
Today, once I quit storytime on my main compy, I shall see what shenanigans "cake" leads to.
Which means I should probably start working on storytime.
