A Day Off

Added: January 20th, 2017

Time to play hooky.  I needed a day off.  Sure, I'd seen some of the sights, but I figured I'd attempt to see more of them.  Other than nice landscapes, a goat head-butting a tree, and a penguin running away from an axe-wielding madman, the day off proved more entertaining than fruitful.

Whatever world you're on, take the time to familiarize yourself with your environment.  Not necessarily right away, but that's easy for me to say since I popped up at the beach on day one, and chose a beach house for my first home.  You'll most likely have a different idea for your first home.  And don't be surprised if sometime later, you find an even better place to settle down.  Sandboxes are good for those.

I Finally Found Gold!

Added: December 31st, 2016

When you're mining blindly, you hope the direction you're mining will yield positive results.  Sometimes, you can be unlucky enough to get nothing after an hour of mining.  And sometimes, you can hit the mother load.  But once you have an ore detector, all this changes, because no matter the direction you mine, you will always find something sooner rather than later.

It took me a while to find gold without the ore detector.  I had followed some mine shafts deep into the planet.  When I finally found some, it was just sitting there in one of the mine shafts, waiting to be mined.

When I got home, I quickly smelted it all and made myself one of these ore detectors.  I do not regret it at all.

The Beach House, Part Four

Added: December 31st, 2016

When I first started to build, I was worried about the rain.  But it never came, so I relaxed a bit and took my time building roofs.

This gallery includes the finished second floor of my beach house.


Note: The Dungeons update (Rising World v. 0.8) was released today, and within its change log is the addition of weather, including rain and snow.


Considering these snapshots were originally taken in September 2016 during in-game play, it's safe for me to say I did put roofs on both my buildings long before this update was released.  You'll just have to wait until a few more entries before I talk more about them.

The Beach House, Part Three

Added: December 31st, 2016

While I don't have a snapshot of the dark stars of bacon that came from that smoker, it should be noted that it's not healthy to eat burnt food.  I was feeling very parched after eating just one star.

This entry is a whirling dervish of an entry, covering four projects at the same time, including the second floor, the deck's new addition, the basement, and the garden.

The Beach House, Part Two

Added: December 31st, 2016

While the beach house is my first Rising World build in Darwinia, the beach house is by no means going to be my official house.  But it's going to take time for me to get to the point where I need something bigger than what looks and feels more like a cottage than a house.

In this entry, I concentrate on the deck overlooking the ocean, and the work started on the second floor.  And what better way to enjoy the new deck than by starting up the smoker and popping in some bacon stars and a side of beef.  Food for thought (no pun intended), keep a close eye on what you're cooking.  Unless you like dark stars of bacon and charred beef.  In which case, cook on fellow miner.  Cook on.

The Workshop, Part Two

Added: December 31st, 2016

Even though I've taken care of the local bear problem, it's still nice to have an indoor ore furnace.  One that handles sixty pieces at a time becomes your best friend very quickly in a lonely world of one bipedal ore miner.

After a long day underground, spelunking to unheard of depths for iron, copper, and tungsten ores, I like filling the furnace and letting it do its job.  Since there's no automatic off switch on the furnace, if I leave it be for too long, it'll burn through the coal I've put into it, so it doesn't give me much time to do anything else but stand in front of it and wait.

I remain thankful for the lack of rain on this world, but sooner or later, I'm going to have to build a roof to this place.
