I have already collected villagers and transported them all the way to my base. I have a breeding farm there, no matter what they are a huge PITA to move however.. Was planning on making an iron farm first, followed maybe by an automatic carrot / potato farm as that sets up a renewable source of emeralds to trade.

However just have not been in the mood to play lately.

I want to get a book of mending, so I've been doing some fishing.  To maximize returns, I crafted this:



It has the maximum levels for the two fishing specific enchantments, and also mending. Mending is more powerful on a fishing rod than on other tools, as a fishing rod will only lose durability if the catch is successful, and since a successful catch will give xp, the mending kicks in automatically. But what makes it even better is that the rod only loses one durability point when successful, and the xp cost of mending only kicks in when mending two or more durability at a time, so mending the rod has no xp cost.

This of course makes the unbreaking enchantment redundant, since it doesn't matter if the rod loses durability more often, as it's going to be mended for free instantly.

My results with it have been netting me a book about every 15 minutes, which is about the rate I expected, since Lure III reduces the wait time to a maximum of 15 seconds which results in at least four catches per minute, or 240 per hour.  There's a 1.9% chance of getting an enchanted book with Luck of the Sea III, which is roughly one in 50 catches.  With 240+ catches per hour, that should be about five or more an hour. My results were lower than that as I was also watching Family Guy so missed a few fish.

I haven't got a book of mending yet, but did get a couple of quite nice books.  I also got enough other rods to craft a second rod identical to the above one, but with Lure II instead of Lure III.  I'll leave it at the spawn for anyone who wants to do some fishing.  It shouldn't be too hard to get it to Lure III either.  When I was trying to enchant my second rod with Lure II to combine with the first one I had, I got it on the second try at the enchanting table.

I used the buried treasure tip to track down a chest that eluded me a while back, so I now have a second Heart of the Sea if anyone wants one.

I think it is the small changes to existing things like crafting vs stone cutter that really get me vs NEW things or healing iron golems.

Quote from: Mr. Analog on August 14, 2022, 09:05:53 AMNice! Which shaders are you using?

Sonic Ether's. I still think it's the best.

Nice 👍

I use Sildur's

I hadn't tried that one.  I downloaded and played with both the Enhanced and Vibrant versions.  I like the enhanced version as a daily shader.  It adds nice tweaks but doesn't impair on the ability to see things easily.  Both the Vibrant version and SEUS are good for making things very pretty, but they're a nuisance if you're actually trying to do anything somewhere with limited lighting, and they both look make whatever tool, weapon, etc. you're using look washed out if dynamic lighting is turned on.

I think SEUS does the vibrant look better than Sildur's though, so I'll stick to SEUS for when I'm in a sightseeing mood (and maybe for screenshots/videos), and use Sildur's for everyday use.
