Meet the Players – MattyBGamer_

Here’s another one! If you’re a LC player and want to do one, get in contact with John on the LC Discord.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I first started playing Minecraft around 2014 on my PS3.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I once saw my brother playing it on my PS3 and I asked him what the game was. He told me that it was a game called Minecraft! I watched him play it for a bit and then I asked him if I could have a go and he pretty much taught me how to start out in the game.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)
  • The Autofarmer (farms have to have pistons, daylight detectors, the works)
  • The Explorer (no set base, everything they have is in their inventory. They just walk)
  • The Subterranean Hermits (their entire base must be underground)
  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I’m closest to the Minimalist in the sense that I usually don’t really do big projects in my worlds. sometimes I like to build something really nice though!

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

Sometimes I mix it up but most of the time I start out the same way – getting some tools and resources and then building a small house and building some farms.

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

My favourite thing I’ve built was a giant under ground base (which I also made with my brother and he also had a section of the underground base which was his).

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I have beaten the EnderDragon 3 times. The first time my brother helped me with beating it, the second time I did it on my own (with some tactics that my brother taught me including the explosive bed trick) and the third time I beat it was in LC with a couple other players.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

In NewSurvival: I have two bases in LC.

My starter base in CountDoDo’s town was mostly made out of wood. It has 4 levels – the first level is the main part of the base which has the normal items such as crafting table furnace etc. The second level is where I keep most of my stuff in chests. An example is my spare gear chest which contains bows and arrows, armour and swords. The third floor is a small lookout tower (it’s at the top of the base). The fourth floor is the underground floor where I have a lava pool covered by glass a small minecart system and a small chest room.

My other base (which is my main base) is made out of polished blackstone has a medium sized entrance and a emergency bunker on the left. Then there is the main corridor which is also made out of polished blackstone and crying obsidian which leads to a farm room, brewing room, my main room, a potion room and my old roommate’s room.

What’s your favourite block?

Obsidian takes the place of my favourite block because I love the texture and it goes so well with a lot of things.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob has to be the llama. They’re just so cute!

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do in LC is mining, exploring and building! (I also love slaying hostile mobs).

Here’s another of our players – aexci (also known as B4C0N). If you’re a LC player and want to do one, get in contact with John on the LC Discord.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

The first time I played Minecraft was around 6-7 years ago, when my friend had MCPE on his iPad and whenever I went to his house, we’d go on this world where we had an underwater base, and an island with a big fortress! I got MC Bedrock around 4 years ago and I only got MC Java in 2020.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I started getting into Minecraft through watching big youtubers play it, such as Stampy, PopularMMOS, and DanTDM. It looked really fun to play and I’d always go play with my friend together.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)
  • The Autofarmer (farms have to have pistons, daylight detectors, the works)
  • The Explorer (no set base, everything they have is in their inventory. They just walk)
  • The Subterranean Hermits (their entire base must be underground)
  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I’d say I’m sort of a Gadget Guy – my base is filled with all sorts of contraptions such as 6×6 flying doors to auto-brewers. I’m also sort of a Competitor as I like playing minigames such as BedWars and PVP.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

When I start a survival world, I usually start it around the same way. Getting wood, stone tools, full iron, building a house, and then continuing whatever I feel like doing. Although, I don’t really play a lot of single-player survival, I’d rather play on servers with friends.

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

My favourite build would probably be my build in the January Building Competition. I just liked how I pulled it off and it turned out pretty nice. It was my first time building a decent custom tree.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I don’t know how much times I beat the EnderDragon but I’d say close to around 10 times? Most of them come from resurrecting it in LibraryCraft.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

My LibraryCraft base (in NewSurvival) was a huge circle in a Tundra Biome. It has an underground area in the centre for my chest area. I haven’t finished the top area which was probably gonna be where my furnaces and other necessities were going to be.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block would probably be the honey block. I mean, if you make a wall of honey blocks, you can basically slide down it! Also the fact that it can pull blocks with it but doesn’t get affected by slime blocks is pretty epic.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob would probably be the slime, it’s a cool mob that can only spawn in selected chunks and has some unique mechanics. The baby slime can be a cool pet to have since they don’t do any damage to you.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do on LibraryCraft would probably be playing Bedwars with people. It’s just fun to go against your friends and other people in the community. I’d also say that build competitions do come to a very close second. It’s fun with the themes and seeing everyone’s build at the end of the month.

Time to get back into these! If you’re a LC player and want to do one, get in contact with John on the LC Discord.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I have been playing Minecraft since I was about… maybe, 6 or 7?

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I had overheard my friends group talking about this game called “Minecraft”, and it seemed like an interesting concept. I went home that day, started looking at the app store on my Kindle Fire Tablet, and found the pocket edition. I think it was 1.6-ish? As soon as I loaded my first world… I got ADDICTED.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)

  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)

  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

Probably a Gadget Guy. I just love to muck around with components, and see what I end up making. I actually have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to redstone, so it’s really exciting when I make something new for me.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

A bit of both, actually. However, I often find myself creating worlds, and never actually using them. I’m weird that way.

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

My favourite build? Probably the Pokemon adventure map that I am making with my dad. It was really fun showing our progress to each other!

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

Never. I have visited the end, but no, I have not defeated the Ender Dragon.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

In NewSurvival: A nice little box, with a living room, and uh, a lot of chests. Filled with stuff I’m probably never going to use. In OldSurvival: An even tinier box (1 wide), again, filled with tons of chests with stuff I’m never going to use. I’m beginning to see a pattern here…

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is probably Polished Basalt. Its rustic and ashen look is fun to build with, and makes for a good floor. I know it’s a bit dull, but build with it and you’ll begin to see its appeal. I use it in my homes often. I recommend using it combined with stained glass.

How about your favourite mob?

It would have to be the axolotl. I mean look at them. Adorable. I love their cute crawling around, and it’s also nice to know that Mojang is conscious of the endangered wildlife. Also, it’s cute that they ride around in a bucket. I mean think about it. Living in a bucket. Wow.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft is the survival. I really didn’t expect that outcome, because I never have really liked survival mode. But with the beautiful community here, it’s definitely worth the constant deaths.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I played Minecraft for around 7 years but stopped playing between 2018-2019. When the game became trendy again, I came back. My mum told me about Librarycraft in May 2020 and I have been playing Minecraft ever since.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

In 2013 I was watching Minecraft Youtubers like dantdm and others. When I got my first ever iPad for Christmas 2013, I watched Minecraft so much more and this made me consider getting Minecraft. I asked my mum and she agreed to spend $8 on Minecraft Pocket Edition.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)
  • The Autofarmer (farms have to have pistons, daylight detectors, the works)

  • The Subterranean Hermits (their entire base must be underground)
  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I would have to say I am a subterranean hermit because a few years back I spent so much time just getting resources to make a house. One day I created a new world and found a cave which was kind of a perfect square so I put a front wall and a door and said “hey this is the best way to make a house”. I still use it even in NewSurvival on LibraryCraft.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

I start each world the same.
– Step 1: Get 2 trees
– Step 2: Make a crafting table, a pickaxe and get stone
– Step 3: get stone tools, go mining and get iron tools
– Step 4: go back to the surface and hollow the cave out
– Step 5: put a door to the entrance to the other part of the cave and realize I don’t have wool so go out to get 3 wool
– Step 6: Make a bed and go to sleep.

Thats how I start a survival world!

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

It has got to be the British ship Countdodododo and I are making in the PiratesPVP project map. It’s very nice and has everything that a pirate ship has – cannons, those sails with a balcony on top and of course the flag. This is probably the best build I have ever made with someone.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I don’t know the number but I can do an estimation. All of these worlds were with friends and sometimes I did cheat in them but I believe I have killed the ender dragon around 5 times.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

My LC (LibraryCraft) base was a cave hollowed out with basically everything in a house but then I participated in the LCBBS (LibraryCraft Big Base Swap) and I got not one but two good builders (crazycollie and JtripleM). I was out of my base hoping my base would be great. May 16th came and my base became amazing with a watch tower at the top, bamboo, wheat, netherwart, carrot and berry farm, and the inside there is my bedroom, a room for my pet cow Henry, my chicken Chuck and my dog Spike. There’s also a mine where it enters a cave and finally na aquarium corridor that leads to a nether portal.

What’s your favourite block?

Ancient debris cause it gives out a kind of achievement if you have one of the blocks. It will give you the greatest kind of weapons or armour plus finding it after using exploding beds or exploding 12 pieces of TNT you finally get the greatest block in the entirety of Minecraft!

How about your favourite mob?

I would say it would be a turtle! They are cute and that’s why my username is TurtleBoy2929. They are only an animal that has no use except to get a turtle shell helmet, but in the real world they’re endangered. I like to care about them and again they are the cutest thing ever.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

It was the monthly competitions but after one new thing came I was obsessed with it – NewSurvival. OldSurvival was mostly taken and had weird bugs but one time before school I went on NewSurvival and I found a cave which was perfect. I got help from another player hollowing it out and giving me some gifts. Then I realized that a SMP will be the best without fighting and I have been playing NewSurvival ever since.

Meet the Players – 2K__

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I first started playing Minecraft on the Xbox 360 edition at some point in late 2012 or early/mid 2013, later in 2014 I got the Java version of the game.

2 years later in 2016 I moved to the Windows 10 edition beta (now known as the Bedrock edition) of the game due to Java edition’s poor performance on my old PC (this was before I had discovered the Optifine mod).

Nowadays I play either Java edition or the Xbox 360 edition.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

The blocky graphics made me like the game for some reason. The Youtubers back then (Stampy, Squid, DanTDM and etc.) also made me play the game a lot.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)
  • The Autofarmer (farms have to have pistons, daylight detectors, the works)
  • The Explorer (no set base, everything they have is in their inventory. They just walk)
  • The Subterranean Hermits (their entire base must be underground)
  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I find myself to be a Explorer most of the time when I do Survival, I also tend to be a Minimalist as well, which is why my bases always turn out to be awful. I can also be a Mod fan at times. I almost became an Autofarmer once, but the farming rules came on the exact same day that I was about to make an auto-farm.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

Normally I start a world the same way, get some wood, get more wood, forget to make bed and wait for the night to end, then make a (awful) base.

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

MSo far my favourite build isn’t fully finished, similarly to collie’s. It is a recreation of Stampy’s Lovely World. It uses the original world seed, which had to be obtained by using it on a emulated copy of Minecraft 360’s TU0 version.

It is also one of the first builds I’ve done which I didn’t lose interest in after 2 minutes.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

It depends – in LibraryCraft I have helped defeat an Enderdragon, but as CountDoDoDoDo stated a while back it probably doesn’t count as I had /back and etc. I have defeated the dragon around 100 times in creative mode, but in survival mode I am yet to defeat her.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

To be honest, my base is probably the simplest base on the server. I never really use my base so that is why – the exterior is very small and basic with 2 crafting tables, the one on the left was for when I was building it, the one on the right… Well, I don’t remember why that one was even there…

The interior is also pretty small, with a smelting room at the back. Sometimes I find that it is still smelting the stack of iron blocks that I might have put in it the week before.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is the oak planks block. I find it very useful for building and crafting, it is what I normally use to make bases. I also like the other kinds of wood… except Acacia wood, I find it ugly.

How about your favourite mob?

I always find myself very fond of sheep, I think they’re cute and fluffy.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

Hanging out with the community is one thing I like to do, turning on shaders and seeing how much the look of a build changes is another.

Meet the Players – ItSaSpOoKyMoNtH

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

For around 4 years (since 2017). I started playing on the PS3!

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I was walking through EB Games one day and saw Minecraft (the disc version). I loved it!

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)

  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

There’s not a lot of those I’d say are me, but the closest I’m going to get is Artist.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

Starting it the same way each time would get a little boring (in my opinion). I like changing (treehouses, skybase, a simple house). The were the only bases I can remember building though!

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

My most favourite build has to be a very recent one. A very tall tower! It took about two weeks to build.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

No, I’ve never done it by myself (not including Creative Mode). The only time I did was on the PS3 with my brother (Rodger500, but to be honest, he did most of the work!

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

Well my base (as well as the tower) is a little oak wood with a bridge through the lake and a mine behind the house. There’s also a storage house and a stable. Whitelisted and Blossomfall also live near me!

What’s your favourite block?

It’s got to be ancient debris. Not because it’s valuable, I just like the texture!

How about your favourite mob?

This is a hard one, but Endermen are my signature mob.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

I can’t have just one answer for this one! I like PVP (although I’m not that good at it), and building in the monthly competitions and Flat Creative.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2012, Minecraft has always been a enormous part of my life and I don’t regret spending my time on it!

What made you start playing Minecraft?

II started playing Minecraft due to me being bored and some major YouTubers like PopularMMOS and DanTDM started playing. That got me really interested in getting Minecraft, after a lot of nagging my parents finally got me Minecraft!

  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I feel like I’m most suited to the Competitors role, I love a good challenge to face off against! And the LibraryCraft tournaments fuel my passions for competition because so many people are so good on this server!

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

I don’t play a lot of survival myself, but I like playing Minecraft with other people. It’s one of the reasons I play LibraryCraft so much, so I can interact with the community!

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

My favourite build so far is my villager base on LibraryCraft. It has so much detail thanks to Cram during the LibraryCraft Big Base Swap, It carries a lot of memories of the past year with all the little unique stuff!

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I’ve defeated the EnderDragon around 10 times in my Minecraft history, all of those have been in LibraryCraft! I’ve never been bothered to actually kill the EnderDragon in solo Survival though.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

I have so many new features thanks to LCBBS! I’m not sure if I know all of them yet. But some of the most prominent ones are the auto smelter, a machine that smelts for you, and a contraption using seeds to produce bonemeal! And finally best of all, my auto book finder, which can find enchanted books of my choice but it’s still in progress.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is most likely the emerald block for nostalgic and real reasons, back when I first got Minecraft my first creative base was made out of it. And I’ve got a ton of it in LibraryCraft to this day!

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob is 100% the Enderman. It’s got so many unique attributes and weird features, when I first met it in creative I was shocked by the sight of this unique mob! That moment still lingers in my brain to this day!

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

I love to interact with the community! They’re all so nice and it makes my day better every day. You guys all make my day better and some of you I would consider better friends then some of my irl ones!

Meet the Players – marginal_cas

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

Since I was around 7? I first got a laptop to play it when I was 6, but the laptop actually couldn’t run the game. I still have that laptop to this day, an old 2009 Toshiba. However, back then, all I knew how to do was blow up trees with TNT in creative mode. I honestly did not understand how to craft sticks, and assumed you needed to find them somehow. Fun fact: my most vivid memory from Minecraft in this time was a hardcore world where I trapped a creeper in a cave and killed it with cactus, while absolutely freaking out for no reason! Apparently it was just really scary to me.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I used to watch a lot of stampylongnose videos, mainly hunger games and adventure maps. He was still well into most of his series’ then, and I never really got to see how to start a new survival world, thus never knowing how to play the game from scratch.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)

  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I’m not sure! I’ve had a 1.7.9 world for a while, and that could be something, but I also really enjoy playing minigames (I play competitive pvp occasionally and would say I’m pretty ok at it. I’ve also tended towards challenge modes and hardcore worlds recently, especially lava rising and silly stuff like that with friends.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

Oh I definitely mix it up. I typically do what I feel like, whether that be a crazy datapack in hardcore or a chill world on normal. Never on peaceful though. Never ever.

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

I’m not sure, probably on an old minehut world with friends. I made a huge glass tower and lined it with lava. It absolutely ruined the sunrise and sundown from our little lakeside home, but it turned out pretty cool.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I have not been counting. I speed run 1.14 a lot and have been getting into 1.16 hardcore worlds quite a bit recently too. I’d say I’ve defeated the dragon over 120 times? I’m not sure if that’s overestimating or underestimating myself, but I have quite a bit of time in doing stuff like just that. The dragon fight is one of my all time favourite boss fights of any game though.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

Unfortunately, I’m not too interested in starting from scratch in an already heavily played world, especially one that relies so heavily on economy at the stage its in. Maybe when the server comes to 1.17, as far in the future as that may be, I’ll get into it, but otherwise I’ll stick to the minigames and just chatting on the discord 🙂

LC: We’re getting closer to 1.17! Hopefully a few weeks out now – we’ve got a few plugins we’re still waiting on.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is easily doors. Although they’re technically not blocks, I love having a bunch of doors in my hotbar for no particular reason while playing with friends. If they ask, I reply with ‘door things’ and its always a great experience. Also for creating endless door tunnels to leave a house.

How about your favourite mob?

Probably endermites. I like the concept of being an enemy that punishes you for pearling too much, and the idea of it just appearing after throwing a pearl is honestly cute. I’d hug one if it didn’t hurt me (does it bite?).

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

Probably bedwars. I’d love to try the regular PVP minigame some day, but I’ve never seen enough people on willing to play it. I’d probably get more into the whole Laketown PVP thing, but that bases off of equipment I’d have to get in survival, and I’m personally not a fan of grinding too hard in Minecraft just to have slightly better stuff that only helps you against other players, and no real progressive advantage. Here’s to hoping there’s kitpvp on LibraryCraft in the future 🙂

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I have been playing Minecraft since about 2014. 15, 16? I don’t really know but the first edition I played was PlayStation 4 with my sister, I remember playing in the Christmas texture pack and trying to kill undefeatable Santa with sticks (a retextured iron golem) After that I started playing MCPE in 2018 because it seemed cool and all the cool people at school had it. Now I play Minecraft Java.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

I can’t remember but I guess I must have just tried playing it on the PlayStation and liked it. As I said before I got MCPE because I thought it might be fun and all the cool kids were playing it. I started playing Java because LibraryCraft on MCPE was very glitchy and all my builds kept losing blocks and glitching.

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)
  • The Monument Builder (they always have to have the biggest build on the server)
  • The Autofarmer (farms have to have pistons, daylight detectors, the works)
  • The Explorer (no set base, everything they have is in their inventory. They just walk)
  • The Subterranean Hermits (their entire base must be underground)
  • The Artist (all the pixel art!)
  • The Competitors (minigames is their jam – PvP, Spleef, Parkour, all that)
  • The Code Wizards (whether it’s command blocks or crazy complex redstone)
  • The Mod Fans (Vanilla Minecraft? Nah – bring on the mods and plugins)
  • The Medieval Builders (villages, ships, the lot)
  • The Modern Architect (modern houses, modern resource packs, lots of concrete)
  • The Challenge Fan (Skyblock, Survival SuperFlat, Hardcore Mode – bring on the challenges)
  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

Well, I’m probably the Minimalist, I’m not a hardcore gamer so as long as I can get what a need relatively quickly (except for glass, why glass, if I could have infinite of every block I would definitely have GLASS) I am also a medieval builder, my whole base is a village! If you don’t know, I love history (just ask me to sing the first verse of Rule Britannia). I’m also a bit of an explorer.

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

I mostly start up a world the same, build a nice, simple wood house and make a mine. I mainly explore the overworld and sometimes venture to the Nether. I’m I bit of a noob to be honest and I only have good stuff on LibraryCraft because of the /back command. (Oh, thank God for /back).

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

That’s a hard one, I never really made any good builds until I started entering the LC build comps. My top three are probably my April comp build, my February comp build and my January comp build. I have so many other that I really like such as a church I made in MCPE or my November 2020 comp build.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

Oh, haha. Get ready to see how noob I am! I have defeated the Ender Dragon multiple times in LC but I don’t count that as legitimate because LC has /back, /home and the lot. I have also killed the dragon multiple times in creative. (hahahaha) So all in all I have never killed the Ender Dragon legitimately. One day I will… One day.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

This one is interesting because my base is a town. It originally started as my little house in a village, but it has now grown to many buildings created by many different players. There is a village house, a big lake, a watchtower, players’ offices and so much more. I like having a town and I am hopefully planning to make DoDoVille, which is my town’s name, in 1.17 Survival. If you want to visit me or read about DoDoVille come down and ask for a copy of the History of DoDoVille. (Yes, I legit made a book about a town in a block game).

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is definitely the netherite block. It looks so cool and on top of that it is very valuable. Unfortunately for me, even though this is my favourite block, because it is so hard to get, I only ever get my hands on it in creative.

How about your favourite mob?

I don’t really know. My favourite mob is probably the Iron Golem, they are really cool and can do lots of damage (I don’t like these guys when I accidentally hit a villager.) I also like dolphins and PARROTS.

I also really like Herobrine, but he’s not a mob (Yet…)

If you have seen me before you will also know that I have an immense hate for the illagers. I kill every illager I see which has led me to kill over 2000 pillagers in over 60 raids.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do on LC is definitely the monthly comps. They are so fun to build and it lets my imagination run free. It’s amazing to see what other players on the server can build as well. Some of JTripleM’s and Crazycollie’s builds are amazing. But above them all there is a newcomer, _Pluto_9 who has some amazing talent they have been hiding. (just look at their May comp build, I mean AMAZING) I wonder how this morphed to talking about builders?

Thanks for reading about me!

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I have been playing Minecraft since about 2010, when I was using my brother’s account. I finally got my own in 2011.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

Ever since I was young, I’ve watched my brother play Minecraft. I was just having so much fun watching him play it!

What type of Minecraft player are you?

We’ll use the following list – based off Mumbo Jumbo’s video – 20 Different Types of Minecraft Player, with a couple of modifications.

  • The Gadget Guy (loves making little redstone contraptions around their base to make life easier)
  • The Resource Hoarder (everything gets stored in piles and piles of chests, even if they don’t need them)

  • The Long Gamers (using the same world since 1.8 or before – such dedication)
  • The Minimalist (a simple house and a few farms will do fine)

I would say I’m an Explorer because I just have so much fun exploring and finding cool things made with Minecraft world generation!

Do you start a world the same way every time, or mix it up?

I mix it up. It’s fun to try new things and challenges. One challenge I’ve tried is to never craft stone tools, and you can only get iron ore after you find some iron in a chest somewhere (like in a desert temple).

What’s your favourite ever build you’ve created?

I don’t have one. I’m not really a builder. Instead of building, I like taking screenshots of other players’ builds with shaders to make it look really cool!

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I think I’ve beaten it over 20 times.

What does your LC base look like? What are some of it’s features?

My LC base looks like a bastion from the Nether. One of it’s features is a secret shulker box tunnel. The shulker box pushes you through itself when it’s opened with an air block above it. It makes for a cool secret entrance.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is Polished Blackstone because of the darkness of the block. It fits with other dark blocks. Quartz also fits well with it if you’re creating a Nether themed base.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob is the silverfish. They’re rare and you can only find them in infested blocks and at an end portal.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do is try to find untouched structures and claim them to make a cool decorative place that people can come across while travelling.
