Everyone started out with a mud hut. They usually look like this.
Then you venture further, and half a year later your mudhut has evolved.
What happened? In my case, I just went through all the blocks available, discovered there’s already much I can do with them, but thtere’s manymany more out there. I installed a nice texture pack (Thank you very much, drummyfish!), I installed some mods from the content database and watched some videos on youtube. Even Minecraft videos might help.
Then I went sightseeing. There’s plenty of people who build on all kinds of servers. I visited some, but I am only one and you are many. Show me what you found! I’d appreciate you naming the server, the location ( coordinates) and most of all the creator.
