Definitely enjoying the series! Keep it up.

I'd suggest maybe have a thumbnail picture and maybe titles for each episode...?

 

Also did you mix up the footage for Ep 16? At the end you were just starting to extend the walls and roof of the mob farm, but just before the middle you were further than that.

 

I also definitely think you should speed mining/mob farming up, and if you really wanted to talk to us maybe do a voice-over!

 

 

Also some tips and facts:

  1. If you want to go 'swimming' in your lake, you could put doors at the bottom or go up to a wall and place a torch at the block where your head is. The torch will be automatically destroyed (you'll get it back) and your bubbles will be reset to full.
  2. You should add Glowstone or torches around your lake, unless you really are fine with it being completely frozen. If all the water blocks become Ice, your water at the bottom will become air, and mobs might spawn, and also squids will not, will die, and I don't think you really want it. When Minecraft 1.5 comes out for FTB Ultimate (a long time), you'll be able to make source blocks more easily.
  3. 1 wood log smelts 1.5 items; same with wood planks. So it's 4 times more efficient if you use wood planks. It's also 5 1/3 more efficient to use charcoal/coal rather than wood logs, as charcoal smelts 8 items.
  4. Repairing tools/armor will give it a total 5% boost (unless it gets to full, of course). This mechanic was added in 1.9pre3.
  5. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to make Redstone, maybe unless you somehow get to where a Nether Fortress might normally be. Then you'd be able to create an Alkahest.
  6. Got your jungle tree to work yet? It was too close to your cobblestone generator.

EDIT78: If you get into IC2 cross-breeding, you could create Redwheat (if they didn't remove it - I knew it existed when I played Tekkit, which was about 6 months ago - it's also still on the Tekkit Wiki)!

 

EDIT93: I've been watching episodes 16-22, and took more than three hours! What ever happened to 15-minute episodes? :P

Those are some good tips, thanks. I've recorded episode 23, but due to a small hiccup, my microphone didn't record anything, so it's just Minecraft audio. I didn't do all that much in the episode, so rather than doing a voiceover, I'm going to upload it when I finish recording a new EP23 and include a link to it. All I really did was make some giant mushrooms and a chest to keep my Skyblock objectives stuff in.

EDIT:

This is the original episode 23 without(/with really silent) voice audio:

Kewl ep. 23! Couldn't be bothered to watch 22.5, but I liked it anyway. :P

 

More tips, eh? I have to admit I might know slightly too much about Minecraft, but I'm fine with that.

  1. You could place jack-o-lanterns under the water (or replace the torches with them). Just remember when you place it, it needs a block under it. But as soon as you've placed it, you can remove the block beneath. I'm pretty sure they give off a light level of 15, the same as Glowstone. It does confuse me a bit; shouldn't the pumpkin prevent most of the light coming out of it?
  2. According to the MCWiki, Endermen can't pick up Cobblestone. I think it must have been a creeper that made a sinkhole in your lake. It just happened to be where the water couldn't get. In fact, here is a list of blocks they can hold: Grass, Dirt, Mycelium, Sand, Gravel, Clay, Dandelion, Rose, Brown Mushroom (not actual Mushroom Blocks, don't worry about them vandalising your Giant Mushroom (unless they take/place a block of dirt from around your Mushroom), Red Mushroom (again, the small one), Cactus, Pumpkin, Melon, TNT.
  3. Make Popcorn!

Challenge for you, maybe? Make a full set of Iron Armor.

 

Here's a few things about crossbreeding - I'm not very experienced at this stuff, so don't quote me on everything, but I think they're right:

  1. Redwheat is a Tier 6 plant, so you won't really get that in a jiffy.
  2. The little green things popping up are Weeds. They can destroy your plants!
  3. Why some of your plants disappeared I have no idea. Maybe your melon farm was messin'.

Also, sorry, but I think that some of your setups are not very efficient.

 

X = Crop

Y = Double Crop

 

XYX

Y Y  <-- This is a common setup and I think it's quite good. I think it might be better if you put an 'X' in the middle as well.

XYX

 

XY   <-- Another good common setup.

YX

 

XX

YY  <-- A setup that you used. I'll tell you why I think so in a moment.

XX

 

Again, don't quote me on this, but my ideology is that crossbreeding is like an infinite water source. You need two planted plants on either side of one you want to make. So the first setup has 4 source blocks and 4 blocks you want to become sources. On the second setup, there are 2 sources and 2 which you want to turn into sources. But on the one you made, there are 4 sources and only 2 vacant blocks. Also, if you take from the middle of your Infinite Water Spring, you're fine. But if you get water from the sides of it, it'll be destroyed. Same as that, if you take away a crop from the middle of your setup you're fine, but if you take away from the middle, it'll become unstable and not do anything. At least in the 2nd setup (or in the 1st if you add a source in the middle) if you take one away, it'll still be functioning, but maybe slower.

 

I'm not sure, but maybe that will work for your melon/pumpkin farm as well! 'Chequered' (how weird British people spell it) patterns FTW (or FTB [cheesy])!

 

 

Thanks for reading!

 

P.S. The Numbered List function on here is messin'.

Yeah, I figured it was a creeper, but I couldn't be bothered to add an annotation :P I've actually decided to finish up the SkyBlock objectives and then head over to another map for a new season. I've got a great one in mind, which I think will be very challenging, but also get me some more stuff to work with.

Are you going to tell us what map you're going to play next or is it going to be a surprise?

I believe that crossbreeding will only happen if both plants are (near) fully grown... that's why you're not getting anywhere with them!

And you really should speed the tree-cutting up.

What I like to do when fishing in Minecraft is closing my eyes, and when I hear a fish getting caught I right-click (and hopefully receive a fish).

Sometimes the bubbles can be a bit misleading the second you see it. Afterwards, you clearly know that it was not actually a fish biting, but it's a spur of the moment thing, you know. At least for me.

 

Also, now I remember! You need 4 Roses/Flowers if you're going to crossbreed them.

Also, you've missed like three or four fish already. When there's the water noise, I think it's guaranteed that you'll get a fish (unless it's something else having a splash). Hence my method at the top of this post!

When "you keep thinking that there's a fish there", you were actually just a bit too slow. :P

 

No offence!

Yes, well, I can be slow at times :) In episode 30, I will reveal what map I will be playing next.

 

EDIT: Episode 29 is coming, but it rendered in the wrong order. Fixing that.

Season finale anyone?

I noticed you were growing a lot more weeds at the end.

In your next season, could you please speed up any cobblestone/tree/mob farming or any repetitive stuff? It tends to get really boring. Thanks. :)
