I've not done a whole lot. I revamped my Lighthouse, making it out of brick instead of cobblestone. I've worked on making my mine safer and easier to navigate. Other than that, not much is going on. I did find a very awesome location that I plan to build a new home in but I've not laid any foundations, just getting the place lit up for safe working conditions. I'll get picks of the area up here soon. Its a really cool part of the world.
A friend asked me if I had eve3r considered playing on multiplayer, but I get put off my noobs trying to destroy your work. Said friend asked "What if it was friends?". Now that would be okay. Maybe we should have a TTF server? See if we can get a few more interested maybe?..
It's actually pretty easy. Save it as a PNG then go to Minecraft.net and to your profile and you will see your character, and right beneath it there is the browse button to upload your own skin.
Made another, Sheepbot. I've uploaded mine onto the Skindex. If you search Transformers or ibloodstormi you can find my skins. Are you using MCSkinedit to make your skin?
I had a question, what do you use to capture video? I watched your walk through and wanted to give it a try.
Currently I've been working on 2 big projects, at the same time. I'm clearing out a huge cavern for a 'Dwarven' city, and the cobblestone I've been clearing out has been going to building a huge city wall around the stuff I've already shown off, and I plan to build up inside of the wall once its done.

I've been working on the city wall and clearing out my cavern. The cavern is going to be huge, but definitely a long project. It should turn out a ton of resources though, and I'll be able to build up my city.
The wall has 2 side completed, and the third is more than half way. I'm going to start on the fourth though and make sure I don't accidentally overshoot on any side. Its big, and because of the hills and mountains I can't actually see most of it half of the time. Makes it hard to photograph.
If I spend another day lost int Minecraft like I did today, I should finish the wall. Some things I plan to build in the city walls will be a fort, blacksmith shop, bakery, a larger farm including indoors to keep the animals from trampling my wheat, a storage warehouse, and houses to fill it in, and of course roads all through it with plenty of lighting.
I've developed an obsession with punching sheep now that you can dye the wool. I'm afraid to go to a petting zoo now, I might punch the real sheep.
I've decided to play on peaceful. The aggressive mobs were just annoying anymore. I figured if I need something from them, I'll turn the difficulty up to get it, but I want to build without blowing up or getting attacked by spiders.
Made a new skin, Squidbot. Was hard to get right. The squids body is longer than any part of the players body, and do it was hard to get everything to look right. I actually accidentally got the arms reversed but it took too much to get it right that I just let it be.

Had a look at all pics - very nice! You're file save must be quite huge!
Lighthouse is much, much better and you've given me ideas about making rugs using dyed wool now! All very nicely light on the outside - something I over-think all the time. I love squid-bot, that's my new favourite now, especially because of the seaspray-esq scuba visor. You're best one yet.
So, after a day of playing Minecraft I have almost completed my wall. I got the 4th side of the wall going and extended out far enough to plan out the joining of the 3rd and 4th side. I've got the plans laid out, now I just got mine the materials.
I built a warehouse to store things in. The chests in my castle weren't enough anymore. Especially with my new fixation on punching sheep.
To build the warehouse I traveled around collecting wood. I wanted some of the darker pine wood for the warehouse to sort of "frame" the walls with. I found that the leaf decay and dropping of saplings has become very generous, and five stone axe's worth of trees ended up giving me 340 sapling, so my forest has gotten much, much larger. Still waiting on some of them to grow, but its getting thick fast.
That's pretty much all though. Aside from slowly but surely making my underground, which will be freaking huge ones I've connected and cleared out all of the caverns and caves in the area. Once I've finished the wall, I plane to build a fort in my city. The type solders would train at and such.

I've been busy clearing out my underground area too on this other world of mine (My original one, but not my main one.) Assigning levels, fixing walls and floors to carve out the shell of future rooms underground...
So, got on minecraft today with the intent of finishing my wall. 3 out of 4 walls are done, and I wasn't far off to connecting the last wall and finishing the project, aside from the walk ways inside of the walls being stoned and stairs being added to make it look better inside. Unfortunately, while getting supplies for the last stretch of the wall, I carelessly fell through a hole in the ground and into lava........ Needless to say, it sorta ruined the day for me in that regard. I didn't feel like going all the way back to my underground and starting gathering the final resources all over again, so I went to my castle and saved. Might get back on later tonight after I get school work done and finish off that wall.
Aside from that, I had found a large tunnel system that I had missed in the initial exploration of my underground before excavation because it was hiding behind a waterfall. It twisted and turned quite a bit, and I've yet to finish exploring and plundering its riches. I came out of what I did explore with at least 2 sets of 64 iron, a ton of coal, and a little bit of redstone and gold. I've still not found any of the new blue ore for dye.
But, that's it really. Lava ended the day early, as it usually tends to.
