We did not get on and record or play Minecraft last night because I forgot that last night was America’s Got Talent (AGT) live show and voting and I am hooked on that. Tonight is church, so we will probably record and play tomorrow night for my first adventuring into Minecraft. In the meantime, did you know that with Minecraft you can create your own world? It is true. I think I will call mine “Me!”. I know you are jealous at my creativity.
I have been aware of creative mode for some time because it was what drew me to first get it for my son. He loves to create and loves to play with Legos and, well, Legos are expensive. Minecraft was not, especially considering that he can create hundreds of worlds on the one time cost. So, I knew that in Minecraft you could use the building blocks to create things. I had no idea just how involved and elaborate those creations could become. Sure I figured if my son used his imagination (like with Legos) he could build say a boat or a car or a building not an entire world. But my son is very creative and has not only created a world but several of them and done it one block at a time as he has not learned the shortcuts yet. And these are not small worlds by any means. In fact, one of them has a mansion in the sky that has something like forty rooms that were all different and individual and a sky pool and all kinds of stuff. He has built an amusement park (or at least close to one). And he is not done. He has been learning from downloaded maps and is looking towards what else he can build and in future episodes of our YouTube channel what we could build together as I learn. I am again impressed with this little piece of software. I am beginning to see why it is so popular.
In the end, I am getting the inkling that I am going to become hooked on Minecraft. So what do they call that, MineHooked? Let me know. In the mean time, be watching for my continued path to the dark side as we will probably be recording Thursday night and posting by the weekend.
