Hello everyone! I made some more progress on the sea tunnels so I thought I'd share them with you. Sorry for the image quality, I have to play Minecraft in windowed mode to make it playable.
At first I wanted to place dirt blocks in a 3x3 manner to cover everything for this and just surround the dirt blocks in glass so I could clear away the dirt and build through the hollowed out space. That idea failed so I went with the good 'ole cover everything in dirt and hollow out a shell.
I need some help with this. I'm not sure of the best way to arrange the entrance to the sea tunnels. Right now I have a goofy looking cobblestone entrance but it looks out of place. Ideally I would like it to look natural, mysterious, and for it to flow well from the coastline to the ocean. Any suggestions?
This is the forward base, not much here except for two furnaces, a chest, and a crafting table. What you may not know about this is that the wiring for the lever you see in the picture was a pain in the ass. Who knew using redstone could be so complicated. At first I wanted a neat little redstone torch display system. If the redstone torch on the right was lit that meant your were continuing on the track, if the redstone torch on the left was on that meant you were stopping at the base. Unfortunately it didn't work out but I think it's pretty nifty.
Just below where I'm standing in that picture was my first failed attempt at an underwater tunnel. It was embarrassing and served no real purpose haha.
Feel free to ridicule the cow in the first picture, he shouldn't be swimming while I'm trying to take pictures, the jerk.
