I did find a cave or two before I got bored and gave up. As much as I try I just don't think I can get into vanilla Minecraft. I don't mind mining per se but I want more of a reason to go mining than to just build a house. Back to Tekkit I go.
btw: I rejoined yesterday after month, just for the fun of it, and lasted like 2 minutes . Why? Can't break blocks - warning, can't swear - warning, can't attack people three strikes and kicked . Oh and the attacking was pure self-defense against Ice and Dino
