I recommend going 96 blocks up in the air. Why? Simple. You won’t have to deal with slabbing, lighting or flooding the surrounding area for 96 blocks in every direction from the farm’s edges to control the entity count. You should also build this farm 1024 overworld blocks away from any other portal. Unless you understand the mechanics of making a perfect portal match/link. That is beyond the scope of this tutorial. Google it. Point being, don’t build this farm next to your base’s main nether portal. The next time you come through it from the nether, you might wind up inside your gold farm with an army of angry piggies.

Hello once again, it’s been a while! Nothing crazy for this first post in a long time, I’ll just be covering some aspects of pixel art in Minecraft and a few programs that make building said pixel art easier. Along with most of my posts on here, this isn’t likely to be full of hidden trade secrets only available RIGHT HERE, but there’s probably at least a few things to learn from skimming the article!
If you’re looking for a way to make art without filling up your residence in one build, check out ItsMeMatheus’ map art blog post here for another interesting method of Minecraft art!
Just a quick note however, while I’m sure most people are quite aware of what pixel art is, there’s still probably a few different types that might be confusing (fancy 3D stuff as an example.) For the purposes of this article, I’ll be talking about straight up 2D 1 block=1 pixel type art!
