I spawn in a snow-covered forrest and immedeatly feel the dread and pressure that I have set upon myself. If I die, this is it. And there is no safe place in the world as of yet. The first day in Minecraft is always something filled with time-pressure, as you scramble to get tools and building-materials to get a shelter for the night going. I also need to find a suitable place to settle down at so, after chopping down some trees to get the wood I will need for my first set of tools, I set out to find a less snow-covered area. I have always liked to start with natural caves or similar, as that would also be a source of coal and stone but the area around me is just snow-covered conifers as far as I can see...
|Just snow and trees...|
|Prime real-estate in need of development right there!|
|The larger cave, before being covered-up.|
|Shelter, food and tools - what more do you need?|
