    That looks amazing! Errmahgerd. You could have told me that was built by bdubs and I wouldn't have blinked. That's a hell of a roof.

    My biggest takeaway from the builder youtubers is that the best way to push a build to the next level is to make up a story for it, and you'll naturally start to add details that really make it special.

    That's looking pretty awesome. My own work has slowed a lot the last couple of months due to other things going on, but small amounts of progress are being made.

    Looking at the latest snapshots the next update is going to be insane. Those caves are a sight to behold.

    The extra 64 blocks below ground are actually gonna fuck up one of my projects, heh. Gonna have to change it up.

    edit: now that I think about it, it's gonna fuck up one project and majorly alter another

    That's why they currently disabled converting worlds from past versions. However, I think they're currently working on a solution to that.

    Not with the current snapshot. The full release yes. The bedrock is moved to -64 in the new version. I believe they have to somewhow alter existing worlds in later snapshots.

    More work is being done on the keep area, and I'm experimenting with some more out-there colours. I think I hate crimson planks though. They don't go with anything.

    The good news it that it'll probably only take another couple of shulkers full of blackstone to get the walls done. I'm kinda looking forward to the update, when it does arrive (if my world will be updatable). Grimstone looks like it could provide a nice middle-shade between stone and blackstone that can also be stairs/slabs/etc.

    @Steelbadger

    The castle looks fantastic, mate. I have yet to build a large-scale castle in Minecraft that I don't hate. Very jelly. It looks very well on the elevated terrain. If you hate the crimson planks, maybe try out dark oak with spruce highlights to bring a splash of brighter colors into the build? You could also mix in some basalt into the base of your walls for a smoother transition between stone and blackstone.

    I've replaced the roof with a pattern of mixed red nether brick (note to self, do not use red nether brick for major builds if I value my sanity), ordinary nether brick, sandstone, and red sandstone. It looks much better. I've also built up some basalt around the base of the castle rock, and it blends much better now too.

    In other news, TOMMD: Spent a little over an hour gathering what I hope is the last of the blackstone I'm going to need. As much of what is still to be done requires polished blackstone blocks (rather than bricks), I spent a substantial amount of time contending with an endless supply of ghasts and magma cubes. Then, once I was all full, I leapt off a ~60-70 block high cliff without my Elytra on because I'm a fucking moron.

    I then landed on the edge of a basalt column survived, just, and then dropped another couple of blocks straight into lava. Because of course I did. My decision to put feather fall and protection on all the things did rather come through for me though.

    I managed to chug my emergency fire resistance potion in time to survive with a couple of hearts remaining, and all was well. I then took a couple of minutes to calm down and put on some new underwear, then flew home (this time remembering to put my Elytra on).

    This is why I finally set up a netherwart farm.

    Decided to take a break from my main world and sign up for the Win10 beta, which now has the new mountain generation. And also mountain goats. Snapped a few pics in a brand new world.

    Notice the y coordinate

    Found goats!

    Decided to stake my claim to this snowy valley between mountain peaks. Never seen snow cover like this before in Minecraft. Btw I almost died twice in powder snow climbing those mountains. In the end I crafted a pair of leather boots. Those are pretty much required equipment in the mountains now.
