Whilst over in Minecraft… Building Pirate Cove – Day 0

As I mentioned in a post a while back, my lad and I are building a pirate land in MCPE and although we have started filming that using a seed on his tablet, I decided to film the same seed on my tablet so you could see what the world looked like before we hacked the Dickens out of it and filled it full of pigs 🙂

You can follow the slow progress of this world over on his blog here. Obviously he’s not writing that at the moment but maybe he’ll take over when he’s older.

Whilst over in Minecraft… Building a pirate world

The Boy and I have decided to join forces in MCPE to build a pirate world using a cool little seed (seedsftw) that generates a lot of islands connected by an ocean and we are going to film the whole doggone affair for his blog.

The idea came from this brilliant poster on his wall. I’ve no idea where the poster came from, but I could spend hours exploring it 🙂


Once I had found the seedsftw seed I knew it would be perfect for recreating that map and my son loved the idea. Here’s what the seed world looks like when you first spawn there.

I’ve filmed the first and second day of building and you can see the vids over on his blog but let me tell you I’ve not had an easy time filming. The first day took four attempts to get a isle film thanks to my tablet deciding to try and download huge app updates just as we started. I’ve taken my tablet to one side and had a word. It won’t be doing it again anytime soon, I can promise you that!

Day 1 is up here. Day 2 will come soon.
