The 12 months of farming

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Duflet, Dec 31, 2013.

  1. Hello fellow EMCers! 8comimi and I have decided to make one obscure farm a month! By obscure, we mean things like diamond and ghast tear farms instead of things like carrot or wheat farms. At the start of each farm, we will announce what the farm is, and at the end, we will post pictures. Happy farming!

  6. I'm pretty sure I just found your base.. it took me about a minute to find it on the live map

  7. I doubt that. Even if you did, good luck getting there.

  8. So this is what you were talking about on ***********
  9. I'm pretty sure I found it, but I'm not going try and get there, because I have two big projects in the town and I wouldn't want to go that far into the wilderness anyway. It would take a loooong time

  11. Cool. :)

    Why don't you do a Lets play with it? Record some as you go. It'd be awesome.

  12. Livestreaming is too laggy for me, I've tried :(

  13. OK, don't do it live. record, edit, post the vids.

    They don't have to be extensive. I just think the nature of this year long project would be hugely supported by some motion media. If you can't do that, maybe get one of the many you tubers/producers to do some 'segments' on your builds. Pass them all your footage, they can edit together something quick and throw it up. Or they could come do a 'lets have a look' at your finished build. Moving pictures just present much more than a still screenshot. :)

    The idea is excellent and pretty epic IMO. So epic media to back it up is a must. :)

  14. The thing is, I have no video experience whatsoever, and don't have a screen responding software.

  16. I didn't know Diamond Farms were possible
  17. Enraged zombies drop diamonds. And so, it's farm-able. :) I've thought about how one would do this effectively, and can't figure it out. So love to see this farm in action. (Name a momentus?)
  18. Cool idea! :)
