I’ve been asked several times now why it is that I don’t do more cave explorations in my Minecraft videos.
The reason is pretty simple. I have found it incredibly easy to get totally and completely turned around and hopelessly lost in a matter of only a few minutes. I can be maybe ten steps from the entrance and still not see it or recognize the terrain.
What would really be incredibly helpful is if Notch & company would implement an in-game equivalent of the garmin nuvi gps. That way I could set waypoints and position markers to show me how to get the eff out of a cave once I’ve gotten seriously lost inside it.
Given something like that I’d definitely spend a lot more time in caves. The problem is that I think that there actually are mods that perform that kind of function. I just can’t use them in my main world LP because I play that Vanilla with no mods. (except for one that stops endermen from moving blocks and another that removes the void fog but I only use those until those bugs are fixed.)
Just copy this code and paste it on your site where you want the link to appear:
