I’m glad that my blog is back up and running and that I can once again access cPanel. My blog was down for almost 6 hours today (and I have no clue why it happened), but hopefully, it won’t go down in the future. I’m not able to stream tonight, as I have less than two hours until I need to get ready and leave for work. I will, however, be working on my city for a bit tonight, and I’m thinking about setting up a stone brick and gravel factory. Gravel is not that common, but it does make flint in the crusher, so setting up a factory to grind cobblestone (that’s being auto-generated anyways) is a good idea as well as cooking the cobblestone into stone and then fashioning the stone into stone bricks for buildings. I’ll probably set up the machines first, including their connection to the network before I begin building the factory structure.
I’m very close to being invited to become a Twitch Affiliate, but I need your help! I need an average of three viewers per stream on my channel to complete the requirements to be invited, but now I’m averaging less than one. Would you be willing to come and watch? You can just lurk in the channel, you don’t need to chat with me if you don’t want to (though I’d be happy to chat with you).
Come join me (WhiteKnight30) in Forge of Empires! Together, we can build powerful empires side by side, aiding one another! Take your city and empire from the Stone Age to the Modern Age in beyond in this game! It’s fun and easy to get started!
I usually don’t stream on Wednesday nights because I enjoy watching the Adults Only Minecraft live stream on YouTube those evenings. It’s always fun to watch and learn something new on that channel and to learn about various data packs and other stuff that they choose to run on their server for that season’s live stream.
I’m playing Forge of Empires now as WhiteKnight30 (feel free to send me a friend request). I just got started but I am enjoying the game so far and am going to see if there is an app for it on my iPad. It should be a fun game for me to play when I am bored especially if there’s an app for it on my iPad.
I won’t be live streaming late at night anymore unless it’s part of a stream that I started earlier in the day. It’s not worth the people who try to encourage me to kill myself while I’m streaming Minecraft or the other crazy people I’ve seen in my chat late at night. Besides, I just finished a five-hour stream and got one follower out of it, for four total gained this weekend. That’s nice, but I was hoping to pass the fifty I need as part of my push for affiliate status on Twitch. I’m also not getting the three concurrent viewers either, the other stat I need for affiliate status. Hopefully streaming earlier in the day will result in both of those getting accomplished, no matter what game I want to play that day.
I won’t be live streaming until Friday because I working to get an extra week ahead of when I schedule videos to be released to the public on my YouTube channel. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be too busy for me to create any content, so rather than falling behind, I am planning on taking the week off from creating videos for YouTube. I will probably relax and work on other projects that I’ve been putting off due to a lack of time except for Christmas Eve and Day which are already booked solid with events with family and church.
Thanks to all the support I’ve been getting from the BSo7 community, I’m only seven followers away from my goal of 50 followers (what I need to apply for Twitch Affiliate status) by the end of the year! If you’re already following me on Twitch, thank you so much for your support. If you aren’t please consider doing so and enabling notifications – you will be then notified the next time I go live on Twitch! (Also thanks to hard work by myself, I’m back to a week ahead of my schedule for YouTube video releases.)
I’m no longer playing my pack, Peaceful Pack. Instead, I found two different modpacks that are centered around playing in Peaceful Mode of Minecraft that I’ll make series out of, and play myself. I may also get brave enough to face the monsters of the game, and start a Vanilla World, but don’t count on it any time soon. 😉 I also deleted the Village Architect episodes I had posted to my channel already as it’s a dead series without the same world to return to. Instead, I’ll reboot that series starting next Tuesday on one of the other packs. For tomorrow’s episode, I’ll record the thirtieth episode of Swagtown, my Banished Let’s Play series instead of a Minecraft-based episode like I had originally planned.
I decided to reboot my Village Architect series because the first place wasn’t good for long-term development. Not to mention that I was also getting tired of listening to the villager noises, but I also prefer more flat terrain when building structures. Yeah, in one of my worlds I built inside mountains, but they were on the edge of a flat forested plain where I had started building (and I didn’t feel like flattening entire mountains and so incorporated them into my builds).
In my world that I sometimes stream from, I’ve made some nice progress and have switched from cobblestone roads to stone brick ones as I have plenty of that material now (thanks to powering up and configuring a Material Stonework Factory to mass-produce it). I’m now focused on getting pigs and chickens autobred and slaughtered to produce their drops and essence for my iron farm (as the cow farm doesn’t produce enough for a decent speed of iron on it own). It will also make my old egg and feather farm obsolete, so I will be tearing it down after I transfer the chickens to the new farm. I’ve also created a place to enchant my stuff and a place to build the various vehicles.
