1) First order of business: Find some place to build a base without getting killed by the 1000 creepers in the shadows.

2) Build relatively big moat surrounding base so baddies cannot run up and kill me.
a) Need iron for buckets to transfer water.
b) Build 2 vertical mine shafts to find iron.
c) Side track - build horizontal mine shafts for diamond.
d) Side track - Need coal for torches and wood for lanterns.

3) Moat complete, build waterfall as source so it looks cooler
4) Build kill area so when baddies fall into moat they die
5) Build glass ceiling on side of mountain so baddies stop falling off side of mountain into base.
a) Need tons of coal for glass


*pant*

Future goals:
Build water tunnels from shadowy area to kill more creepers
Get tons of TNT and wire together with redstone. Blow up giant hole in mountain. Hope lava doesn't come rushing in...
Yeah, but the question is why? By building a base are you getting an achievement? Defeating an evil entity? Making real-world money? Something? Not everyone gets enjoyment out of the sense of accomplishment of having built something with no real-world value (AKA a digital environment)
