The Oracle Zeppelin is now travelling!
This will be a log of the adventures.
Day 1 - Liftoff
A mechanical marvel she is! The Oracle has taken off from the Frontier Beach and is hovering over the ocean as I write. I've left behind a stone imprint of the ship on the beach where I left. I'm travelling without a companion as of yet. The engine seems to be running well. I've hidden it in the floor so it isn't much of a nuisance when I'm landing.
Day 1 and the night thereof
It's getting dark out and I had to stop at a forest to get food. I'll be camping out there for the night in my zeppelin. The cockpit is a bit too dim to see out of.
Expect more writing later.
My new (thrice) zeppelin is finished and ready to be sailed onward in a random fashion to a random location. I hope to be travelling in the direction of sunset with hopes of finding a NPC Village after the patch.
In the meantime, I will try to find a Wolfie III (Wolfie was discovered to be MIA, and Wolfie II was blown up on a TNT freighter) and settle down possibly on a large cliff or floating island.
Pictures and updates to come.
Too Many Items
LB Photo Realism x64 (x128 lagged my game too much)
I'd like to travel to the Far Lands, but I might get there without encountering a single NPC village. I also don't want to stop and wait for the update, plus there's a chance that <1.8 worlds might not even GET 1.8 features.
So, if my world DOES get 1.8 features, where should I go?
So, this is my new zeppelin in the form of a house.
I will be flying it around aimlessly until 1.8 is released, at which point I will dock at an NPC village and stay there.
Well, here's some pictures and documentation of the journey.
This house was finished by dawn of day 10. It took three zeppelins, two boats, and one elevator to get to this location. The finishing of the house marks the first day of travel.
I flew around alone for five days (nothing very exciting happened except for my porch being left behind and me needing to make a new one) before finally reaching this random overhang.
I landed the house on a strange overhang and took this picture. It would be another three days until I journey with a companion.
First off, I do realize that this isn't very.... daily. But, nothing really happens in between these, but I do hope I'll be able to give you some looks at the interior, etc.
The dog's name is officially Wolfie.
I docked on a tree to get him, and when I took off again, I had a tree attached to my house.
I flew out under the house to discover that it wasn't just one tree, but a forest that I picked up!
I managed to clear them all before nighttime.
The images glitched out and didn't upload. Now the tab is malfunctioning and I might not have any images at all.
Anyways, Wolfie couldn't sleep that night, so I stayed up with him. We traveled onward quite a bit until we reached a quite large desert the next day.
We crossed the desert without a problem. There will be no images at all for these next few parts.
Anyways, in just the one day, we crossed the desert, and reached a large savanna. Beyond it is a large tundra. I fear that if we don't turn back now, we might never find civilization.
Wolfie is getting tired, so I gave him my bed to sleep in. As we cross the tundra tonight, I'm beginning to wonder if it was a good idea.
We're still on the tundra. It's getting cold out here, and I should probably just lock Wolfie inside and install a door again.
The Oracle Project suit isn't as insulated as I would have liked it to be, and we ran out of fuel for the furnaces, so I had to go get some more.
Punching trees in the tundra isn't very effective. I only managed to get enough fuel to keep the house heated for another day. I hope we're out of the tundra by then.
The furnaces run out of fuel tonight.
Unfortunately, just as I was preparing to take off, we got a blizzard.
Guess I'll be in the tundra a little while longer.
Good news is:
I installed a door to the house. Now Wolfie will be locked inside till we leave the tundra, but he doesn't seem to mind.
Fuel's out, but luckily we got out of the tundra fast.
We passed lots of amazing scenery.
And I made a map.
I'm following the map to... somewhere.
We made it to the edge of the map. I doubt it's the real edge of the map, though. Regardless, we're en route to the Far Lands.

Built a new Zeppelin in the form of a flying house. Currently on a journey to nowhere. Possibly the Far Lands.
I will add pictures tomorrow, and I will regularly update you when I reach certain points in the journey.
Just got a wolfie who I'm naming Wolfie.
Unfortunately, Wolfie got stuck in a glass barrier around the porch, likely because I docked the house on a tree and the whole tree got lifted along with the house.
Oh well, now I have a sentinel.
So I found the Zeppelin mod, built a house in the sky, and I've been flying it around for about ten minutes looking for a place to stop, drop, build a ship, and build an elevator to get up to my house.
Here's a picture of my house:
There's a bed right up at the stern near the exit, and in the middle is a small observation deck with a small observation bridge on it.
Also at the port is... what is it?
Oh yeh, it's a little room where the pilot sits, but that's not important right now.
I'll update you when I find a place to dock.
Oh, and I'm using TMI in conjunction with this.
The crappy computer I'm broadcasting from right now can barely play RuneScape well on the Low graphics settings, but can make up to 124 FPS on Minecraft with Fancy settings.
I'm confused as to wether this is Notch logic or Jagex logic.
Or just illogic.
The Sal's FC was being incredibly random and got into a discussion about reality.
This is the outcome.
RuneScape > Real Life
and if that is true then,
Real Life = Insignificant
so if that is true,
RuneScape = r xs
where R is Reality and S is the significance of RuneScape in life.
For a general player,
RuneScape = 1x25
Making RuneScape have a +24 over Reality.
If that is true for RuneScape, then that must mean that
M = r xs
where M is Minecraft, R is reality, and S is the significance of Minecraft in life.
For a general Admiral,
M = 1x10,000
Giving Minecraft a +9999 over life.
And that is my theory.
was falsely reported as a Category 1 Hurricane when it passed over New York City. The storm was actually much weaker than a Hurricane when it passed over NYC. It was reported as a Tropical Storm only after leaving the state.
Never trust the media.
who accidentally the power?
Back home, the power is out and I'm blogging from my grandparents' computer.
Can't play Minecraft because they use IE and it says some add-on for Minecraft is "malicious or malfunctioning"
Good sir, Notch is in no way trying to be malicious.
Someone accidentally Hurricane Irene.
Nothing at all happened here except one power surge.
Come on. It's a once in a lifetime storm and you give us northeasterners NOTHING.
I still feel so sorry for those in the south.
will be directly over NYC in one hour.
If I don't give you an update within one week, assume one of four things:
A) I'm dead
B) House was destroyed
C) Some moron accidentally the Internet
D) All of the above
