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 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 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.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I’ve been playing Minecraft since about 2012 so just over 9 years!

What made you start playing Minecraft?

My brother and his friend were playing it one day and they started showing me their pocket edition world! I thought it looked pretty cool so I decided to join too.

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’m probably quite of lot of them! The main one for me would definitely be a resource hoarder though. I always have chests and chests full of things I don’t really need! I am probably also a bit of a monument builder, a little bit of explorer, competitor and a medieval builder.

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

I usually start my Minecraft world the same way each time! I like to get straight into mining and always get a bit carried away getting ores and end up getting killed by a skeleton because I never bothered to make armour! Once I get out of the cave alive, I usually take ages to find a nice spot for a base and then go from there.

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

My favourite build I have created hasn’t been finished yet but JtripleM and I are currently building a full scale Hogwarts! I think this may be my favourite build so far because I’m a huge Harry Potter fan!

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I have beaten the ender dragon quite a few times, but not fully in survival so I don’t think that counts! I think I may have beaten the Ender dragon in full survival once, but it was with a couple of friends.

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

My LC base is a big castle that I share with JtripleM! There is a small medieval village out the front thanks to Turtleboy2929 built during the big base swap which looks awesome. The actual castle itself is built out of various types of stone and the inside is full of chests and storage, plus a couple of rooms just for decoration!

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is spruce wood in any form! I love the way you can use it with lots of different types of blocks, giving you a wide variety of things you can build with it!

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob is probably a pig or a fox. I think they are both really cute and love to keep them as pets!

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do in LC is probably TNT Run or building in the monthly comps!

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I’m not certain how long I’ve been playing but I do remember in about 2011-2012 my parents buying me Java Minecraft because I wouldn’t stop begging for it!

What made you start playing Minecraft?

What made me get into Minecraft was mainly the amount of hours I spent watching YouTube and mainly Minecraft channels like stampy, dantdm, popularMMOs and so on. Another thing was that everyone and school played it and I wanted to play with my friends.

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

I think when it comes to survival worlds I like exploring a lot so I’d be the Explorer and also a Hoarder since all my chests are just filled randomly with stuff.

John: I can completely agree with this – I got Zashu’s base in the Big Base Swap, and the chest monster was enormous!

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

I usually start the same when playing Minecraft. Find wood, explore, find nice place to make a base and that’s mostly it.

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

My favourite creation I’ve ever created would have to be the sky island in my realm world. It took a long time and I’m really proud of it. It took me a few tries to perfect the island form but in the end it became amazing.

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I cannot remember how many times I have defeated the ender dragon, but I’d say a rough guess would be like somewhere between 30-50, but I’m not really sure!

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

My main LC base right now is in a small valley area surrounded by hills. It has a underground base in the middle which is surrounded by a river. There’s a stone crewmate from Among Us on the side of one of the mountains which overlooks the valley.

What’s your favourite block?

I don’t know why but I really like using book shelves while building. I think book shelves just make whatever it is look really nice.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob would have to be the wither because it creates destruction everywhere!

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft is just relax, chill, build and talk with all the wonderful people.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I have been playing Minecraft for 6 years now, The earliest version I have played is probably 1.9, The Combat update! This update also was one of the first updates with the end cities.

What made you start playing Minecraft?

My sister started, but I’ve gotten much better than her. I also keep on teaching my younger sister how to do things like I can, though she hasn’t caught up, yet!

I am a subterranean hermit! My whole base is underground with some secret bits there, like my blackstone Nether secret base. I also have a sugarcane and bamboo farm hidden down in there!

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

I mix my worlds up a lot, but I label them accordingly, like my redstone testing worlds have redstone test #1, and Tree House Base. I definitely hope Mojang adds folders, I might crash my PC with all the worlds!

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

My favourite build is definitely my 2020-21 LibraryCraft build. It is an underground base with multiple different hallways, it is also the one I’m in right now, though I still change bits and bobs around the place, just to make it look better. Extra details, like nice little hidden light sources, and secret buttons that do certain things…

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I have beaten the ender dragon about 10 times, but only 8 of them were solo. My first time, I didn’t know how to, so I called up my friend to help me out! We were so bewildered when the egg was there, we didn‘t know what it was!

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

My base has a lovely bedroom, with some secret entrance to my underground part, which has a massive bamboo and sugarcane farm, and a armour room! I also have a nether portal, and an extra bedroom.

What’s your favourite block?

My favourite block is the diamond block, maybe because I have a lot of them in my enderchest on the LibraryCraft server! (32 to be exact) Though it is a big seller, especially when I buy things, I usually pay with diamonds, or diamond blocks.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite mob is a cat! I am still trying to find one on LibraryCraft, as I don’t know where a village is close to me either, which is kind of sad as I usually find one on my survival worlds.

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

I like to go mining, but I also like using blackstone, as it is probably the most common block in my base! With over 1 shulker box already used in my base, it has loads and loads of blackstone, and blackstone bricks.

Meet the Players – JtripleM

We’ve met a bunch of our moderators, time to meet some of our players! First up is JtripleM.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?

I think I’ve been playing Minecraft since about 2012-2013 which makes that about 7-8 years now. It feels very weird to know it’s been that long!

What made you start playing Minecraft?

What made me start playing Minecraft was one of my mates. I remember going over to his house and playing this new game he got called Minecraft on his PS3.

I remember me and him being terrified of Herobrine and constantly watching YouTube tutorials on how to spawn him into the game back in 2013!

Good question! So many options on the list but the one that describes me the best I reckon is a Medieval Builder. As most of you probably know by now, I love building in Minecraft, probably my favourite thing to do actually and I really love the medieval style! If you’ve seen my current survival base, it is a castle. I’m planning to build a village and medieval trading ship at the dock!

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

I usually start off my survival worlds by mostly exploring the first day whilst collecting materials such as wood and iron. I usually run out of time in the day and end up being chased by zombies and other monsters. Usually spend my first night in a dirt hole in the ground!

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

That’s a hard one! I really like some of my builds so it’s hard to pick my favourite one. I think my favourite build on the LibraryCraft server would have to be either the PVP lobby or the Empire State Building with King Kong climbing up the side. Both builds were really fun to make!

How many times have you beaten the EnderDragon?

I could not tell you how many times I’ve defeated the EnderDragon because I actually don’t know! I know that sounds a bit cocky but I think it’s my mission in Minecraft to kill the dragon. I load up a new world and everything I do is preparation to that big mission! A Minecraft world isn’t complete without killing the dragon in my opinion.

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

My LibraryCraft base looks like a Medieval village (well, will look like one soon). I have a Medieval Castle with stone castle walls all the way around but are yet to add many buildings. We have a dock where I am also planning to build a medieval trading ship! We have storage rooms, bedrooms, enchanting rooms, everything a good base needs is in our castle!

What’s your favourite block?

That’s a tough question but I think my favourite block would have to be the spruce log block. This is my favourite block because it is my favourite block to build with and can be made into so many other handy/good things such as spruce planks, spruce stairs, sticks etc.

How about your favourite mob?

My favourite Minecraft mob is definitely the Zombie. The only reason this is my favourite is because it is pretty easy to defeat and can’t ruin my newly built house. Looking at you creepers!

What’s your favourite thing to do in LibraryCraft?

My favourite thing to do in the LibraryCraft server is definitely building new things and lobbies for the server as a builder. The thing I love about building for the server is that it can be anything you want, with such a wide variety of block choices, you can go crazy!
