She shoots bananas!

Without thinking, I opened up the roof of my mine. Ah, beautiful sunshine.
That is, until it started raining.

Great, my mine got flooded, now what? I guess this’ll take a while to dry up. Might as well use that time to make a proper roof. What about the glass roof I speculated about earlier? Can’t hurt to try.

I stoked up the furnaces pretty high, and threw little bits of sand into it in the hopes that it’ll create something glass-like.
While that was cookin’, I went and re-built the mine’s roof with mud, dirt, and clay. Hey, it’s only temporarily, so I can afford to do these ugly make-shift things.
Went outside and started on a mold for the glass semi-sphere on top of my mine. Why did I decide on a semi-sphere? it looks a lot cooler than a flat roof. It serves no real purpose whatsoever.

Yeah. This should do just fine.

Headed back to my furnaces. They had indeed produced something glass-like. Or more specifically, rough glass. Ugly-ass half-sand all over it. I tried modeling them into easy-to-build-with triangles, but failed. This mess will have to do then.

Back outside again. Time to glass-ify this pile of dirt.

Quite a few days later, my mine had dried up, and my creation was finished.
So. Much. Beauty. Absolutely stunning.

    Mines can get flooded by rain now? How long has this been a feature?

    Reminds me of the giant 44 radius glass sphere I built on a community Minecraft server.

    And then they reset the server to my dismay.

    I’ve never played minecraft before but the more I hear about it the more I wanna play it!

    Looks like an old indian pyramid.

    I hadn’t thought about how to make a dome like that. I’d seen people do it but not how they did it. I think I might have to have a full glass roof myself now. More well written goodness ^^
