Disney Dreamlight Valley

Unlocked some more characters and have been progressing in the story more as well as still farming pumpkins for coins, lol.

House Flipper

Been on a House Flipper kick again. Figured out how to unlock pets now (took forever to find out, xD). Bought my first house and I'm nearly finished with it. Just need to work on the bedroom then I think it can be sold. Kitchen is the hardest for me I think.

I started playing through the PSP version of Manhunt 2. Very over the top, violent game. Gameplay is definately dated, but it's a fun romp if the older, grittier Rockstar releases are your cup of tea.

Spent a few minutes after work here to tackle that iron ore vein that I found the other day.  Just kind of curious how much was actually there since I never really counted out what was in the first ore vein that I found.  (I'm still working that first one btw.  This one seemed smaller.)   Anyway, in terms of raw ore blocks (silk touched) the results for this one were:

  • ~7 stacks of iron ore blocks
  • 14 blocks redstone
  • 7 blocks lapis
  • 15 blocks diamonds
  • 20 blocks gold

After hitting the blocks with a Fortune III pickaxe that turned into:

  • ~15 stacks of iron
  • 2 stacks redstone
  • 2 stacks lapis
  • 30 diamonds
  • 48 gold

Not a bad haul.  Didn't take too long either.  I tend to get bored fairly quickly with grinding for resources but this only took the better part of an hour to mine out the whole area with a silk-touch/efficiency III/netherite pickaxe.  I've got a set up for feeding up to a full chest-worth of raw blocks (and lava buckets from another hopper/chest) into/out of a blast furnace so after that it was just a matter of dumping it all in and waiting a few minutes for the smelting process to run its course. 

I spent the time playing with skulk blocks that I'd obtained from the ancient city this weekend.  Looks like the sensors output a redstone signal that could be used for all sorts of mischief.  :)

Sunk some more time into Squad and Insurgency: Sandstorm with some friends. Squad had an update yesterday that added the Chinese Navy and the Russian Air Force. Both are relatively fun to play. The update also added more realistic weapon ballistics and sway mechanics. Good update overall.

I've started up Lego DC Super Villains on my Switch again. I never did beat it. It's fun to destroy things and build something else with the Lego materials gotten from crushing the previous item(s). Two-Face will always be my favorite DC villain.

Looks like MSFT's Realms still isn't updated to 1.20 this weekend so I'm taking a break from zombies and ancient cities and instead chillin' in the VAB (Vehicle Assembly Building) in KSP. 

To date I've been using mostly expendable vehicles.  I try to build them as cheaply as possible and settle as many contracts per launch as possible but obviously reusable, general-purpose ones would be better, saving money and providing higher profits.  To do a good job on reusable vehicles however I need higher-tech parts.  But to get the parts I need an upgrade to my R&D lab because I'm pretty much at the limits of the tech that I can get from my lab at its current level.  To get the R&D lab upgrade I need money.  Money comes from completing contracts, but if I have to build a whole new ship every couple contracts I'm not saving much money.  To save more money I need to build more reusable vehicles.  Which means I need better tech.  Wait.. I think I've been here before.

It doesn't help that over time a given type of contract will come offered with lower $$$ payouts.  That means that you have to either build cheaper rockets to complete them or else go for the more difficult, higher paying contracts.  (Which generally require more expensive, higher-tech vehicles.) 

So I'm in the VAB getting creative with the lower-tech parts that I already have available to me.  No big breakthroughs so far in terms of full reusability but I may be able to increase overall efficiency/profitability in terms of contracts settled per vehicle launched.  At least on paper.  I haven't flight-tested anything yet and usually the development process includes a few explosions before a new design gets dialed in.  But explosions are part of the fun.  :D   🚀💥

Sometimes shaders are pretty cool.  (Moonrise on the farm.)

Sometimes they're quite annoying.  (Note the zombie and 3 creepers.)

Started another game of Stardew valley. I'm going to spend this one putting a lot more into fishing and trapping on a river farm.

Extremely vital question: Who is your favorite marriable character? 

I liek Emily :^)

Thinking about playing some Yugioh Nightmare Troubadour in NDSi or Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on Switch. Otherwise, I've accrued quite a few skills from the TP Medal shop in Xenoverse 2 on my Switch by collecting the dragonballs and repeatedly wishing for 200 TP Medals. They don't last too long though. lol A lot of collecting of the dragonballs is needed to wish for that a LOT.

Went exploring in minecraft and found one of the new cherry-blossom biomes in minecraft.  Unfortunately it was pitifully small, with only a couple dozen pink blossoms on the ground and no trees.    All I wanted was a single sapling.  I even brought my diamond hoe with Fortune on it.  :(

I also found some ocean ruins and some suspicious gravel therein.  A few minutes of brushing (and dodging tridents from annoying Drowned) got me a little bit over a dozen pottery sherds.  Only 4 different types however, "Mourner", "Explorer", "Blade", and "Plenty".  Up to 4 can be used to craft a "decorated pot", which gets you a "careful restoration" advancement.  The wiki says there are 20 different types of pottery sherds.  Collect them all!

Wandered around a bit more in the frontier (distant, unititalized chunks) of my brother's minecraft realm looking for a bigger "sakura" biome than the one I found the other day.  Or at least one that has trees/saplings.  Didn't find that but I did find a mangrove swamp biome and some frogs. 

Spoiler

And me without any slimeballs.  :(  Well, at least I finally caught up with that update.  Maybe I'll find a wandering trader with some cherry saplings on offer.

Dreamlight Valley

Think I got everything I wanted from this season's items. Still working on character quests though and need to unlock Simba and Nala's realm as well.

 

Exciting news is that I ordered my steamdeck last night. So I'm definitely looking forward to that!
