For anyone interested, I really haven't been doing a whole lot in minecraft the past few days. I've mostly been playing in my Industrycraft/Buildcraft world. I've got a giant quarry setup and have an oil deposit (it's really big) way off in the distance. I'm about to the point where I want to install Additionalpipes to deal with the distance issue, but I don't know if it would really help. There do appear to be some other pipes that might be fun or useful though, so I probably will anyway. See, the oil field is so far away that the oil only moves in segments. I can pump the oil from the deposit to a holding tank at the edge of the viewing distance, then I can pump it from there to another holding tank, and pump it from there to my home. At this point though, I have already collected so much oil that my tanks at home are full and refining (slowly, only one refinery so far), so I'm not in a huge need of oil. Plus, I've only got the one quarry, and it's using the fuel so slowly that it's not a big deal. I have noticed how nice quarries work with fuel though, super-efficient. I still haven't delved too much into the Industrialcraft stuff, I've got the basic setup going and even have a matter generator setup (thanks to work from The Boy). But I don't see much of a need to get into the nuclear power situation yet. I'll throw a map of my Industrial/Buildcraft world after the break.
In other news, Batman: Arkham City came out this week, so my Minecraft playing has been put on the back burner while I play that. I do still hope to get another video out this weekend, I'm going to continue the Mining With Munchmo series. I hope to add a little excitement to the series, less building more exploring . . . So I can build more!
ETA: After watching Yogscast's most recent video I decided I liked their ideas and want to experiment with Zepplins!
