- Vance StevensOwnerThe actual /warp is templeundervillage (note lower case). I had to go there to test the /warp, and I found that someone, probably one of the villagers, agitated at the recent interest shown by explorers from another dimension, placed an iron door over the entrance to the most sacred part of the temple. I guess they make iron doors in the blacksmith shop adjacent to the temple precincts. To open the door, you have to know how to operate the 'device'. Once inside, the way is, hmmm not exactly clear, but the direction is (whatever you do, don't jump down there!)
In another post I invited participants to come help us "loot" this temple but I withdraw that poorly worded invitation and leave the disposal of this one to my esteemed colleague and co-moderator, Abu Fletcher.
If interested in looting a temple I can invite you to another one, if it hasn't been looted already (I wouldn't know for sure until I went there and tried to loot it). Sign up for the expedition in the reply area below.2w
- I'm more interested in how the temple and several village structures seem to have become intertwined. I'd like to see if we can untangle the parts before damaging anything with a "smash and grab" approach. Honestly, after looting a few temples, it all gets to be pretty routine. Often I don't even bother.
I'll be in-game at about 14:00 UTC.2w
- Vance StevensOwnerYes, exactly, by "looting" a temple I mean to approach what lays beneath the blue and red tiles in a calm and systematic manner, avoid setting off the TNT, which we know is down there, if we do not work systematically, and on arriving safely in the space below, that we open the lids on the chests that will also be there and peek inside.
I think this is one of those constructive activities that show Minecraft in its most collaborative mode, and reveal to participants how critical language is in the process (for example when Abu Fletcher told me once, in text, DON'T STEP THERE. Step is probably a useful word in English, as is its appearance in a negative imperative.) But more importantly, the instructions to one another as we work toward a common goal are the point of the exercise.
Hope to see you at 1400 if the bus I'm on reaches Penang in time.
If anyone would like to join us in the exploration of this temple and / or others, please click REPLY below.2w
- Here's an aerial view of the temple/vllage (from the dynamic map).2w
- Actually, Vance I would suggest that we entirely leave the "loot" alone. It's really not interesting. Instead, I'd like to see us work creatively and in unison to "map out" how the temple and village structures are intertwined. For example, can we find minimally invasive ways to get into the main temple structure WITHOUT damaging ANY of the exteriors of any of the village structures?
In fact, anyone who jus wants the loot is welcome to get it through a diagonal tunnel (as I have done before on many temples).
Or maybe I should just go in and grab the loot myself now so we can focus on the archeologically interesting aspects of the site. : )2w
- Vance StevensOwner+1I liked 's spiral approach, evident in the video, here.2w
