I'll post individual episodes here on the blog twice a week, but to kick start things, here is the series trailer! Currently playing 1.11, of course we'll update when updates are officially released!

In the series we'll explore new design aesthetics, building techniques and redstone machinery. And when we work with redstone, we'll learn how and why it works, not just where to put blocks and wire. I like to try out shader packs once in a while and sometimes new textures. We'll go on adventures, build castles and transportation systems, moodscapes and mini-games, all kinds of farms! I've got big plans for this world, but the main goal is to have fun, so check out the show and let's play some Minecraft!

Episode 95: How To Build An Item Transportation Network : 06/21/2017 2:52:58 pm6/21/17

We go underground and above ground and all in between to learn how to build a whole network of water streams and ice bends and sorting systems and item elevators and dropper towers and all sorts of shenanigans in order to transport our flower farm drops to a nice orderly array of chests on the surface in anticipation of our next aesthetically-pleasing overworld build, the Greenhouse (coming soon)!! When the flowers from the farm drop down with the skeletons from the flower forest spawner, we have to sort them into individual item elevators and send them up 45 blocks to the surface and have them appear in chests fed with droppers from underneath so we don't see any of the mechanical stuff.

Episode 94: Always Stop And Smell The Roses! : 06/01/2017 7:27:48 pm6/01/17

We finish converting most of the vanilla spawned village buildings into our quaint flower forest village architecture and we actually plant some flowers! Tons of flowers! We also chat in this episode about a few things: Blade Runner 2049, D&D and some other things more Minecraft-related (like carpet mob spawning and different roof styles).

Episode 93: How To Build An AFK Flower Machine!!! : 05/15/2017 11:51:20 am5/15/17

We learn how to build a massive redstone-powered AFK-able flower machine! For generating and harvesting the 5 flower types we can only get in a Flower Forest biome (4 colors of tulip and the magenta allium)! I built the prototypes in a nearby swamp for use in harvesting the elusive blue orchid and they work well, but the flower forest machine itself became a much larger build than I anticipated due to the dispersal of flower types in the flower forest biome. Utilizing some Etho hopper clocks and other redstone contraptions, we learn how to build dust cut pulse generators and fading comparator clocks and monostable circuits and redstone repeater signal delays, rocking piston arrays, water dispensing arrays and bone meal dispenser clocks! Too much redstone fun!

Episode 92: Happy Little Houses! : 05/09/2017 12:37:54 pm5/09/17

We build some happy little houses, lol, get our Bob Ross on with the MInecraft blocks. Our "French countryside-inspired" color village/dye town is starting to take shape! We discover a few issues with flower generation, we create some doormats and we expand the chapel, all in a hard day's work! Want to learn how to build a town? Or how to build a village? Grab some blocks, launch the Launcher and letsplay some Minecraft!

Episode 91: Skies, Paths, Comments, Walls!! : 05/06/2017 2:55:56 pm5/06/17

We build a wall! But a pretty one, and for fun. We also take a look at an old but new sky resource pack, we fix something based on a really good comment and we work the little paths in our flower forest village, all in preparation for the coming village makeover!

Episode 90: A Whole New Village!! : 04/27/2017 12:29:49 am4/27/17

I am taking a much needed break from day job stuff and we're just hanging out. I dig a big hole, we do some trading with coal and tool smiths and we check out the new village (which we found a while ago but have not spent any time at). The new village is our Flower Forest village and I suspect we'll be wanting many a flower for the upcoming 1.12 vanilla Minecraft update! So grab your pick, grab some torches and letsplay some Minecraft!

Episode 89: Future Projects To-Do List Room!! : 04/23/2017 11:50:42 am4/23/17

We need a room to put up signs on which we write down all of our future project ideas - a future project ideas slash to-do list room! All the big YouTubers have one of these!! And in so doing, I show you the little-seen eastern tunnel as part of our base that has not yet been developed and we discuss future plans for that lovely area as well as learn how to build a future projects to-do list room! And when we're done with it, we will immediately populate it with, oh ... around 25 projects or so, not too many. We probably need more, right? So letsplay some Minecraft and get building (even it's just to build a room to hold our ideas for future builds)!!

Episode 88: Indiana Jones Lamps!! : 04/13/2017 2:17:11 am4/13/17

We are changing something in the giant cavern at Mystery Island - we're getting rid of the pillars we built last episode and installing massive hanging fiery lanterns in the spirit of going more "Indiana Jones"!!! Hanging fire lanterns beats 3x3 pillars every time, don't you think? We also make light of the amount of work terraforming this ridiculously large cavern is requiring, but we get another chunk done. It's finally starting to look like something intentional and pretty vs ugly and random. We also talk a bit about some new Lego Minecraft sets (lol) and some wonder at some upcoming 1.12 update possibilities. What you waiting for? Letsplay some Minecraft!!!

Episode 87: Ancient Cavern Carving!! : 04/07/2017 1:01:32 pm4/07/17

Back at Mystery Island, finally, for some more work in the main cavern!! This build is so freakin big, its overwhelming, so we work on it a little at time. But anytime we work on it, it's still a massive job because of the pure surface area of what we're working with, all the terrain around our ocean monument! Today we design a goofy looking skull carving and then weather the heck out of it to make it look cool. And of course we have a tunnel leading up to the Day of the Dead inspired skull's mouth!

Episode 86: Canyon Tunnel Path!! : 04/02/2017 8:28:19 am4/02/17

Not only does every squid farm need a roof, but it needs a path to get to the farm! In a previous episode of our let's play vanilla amplified survival Minecraft, we blasted a long tunnel through a mountain to gain access to our luxurious squid/ink farm and today, we terraform it and build the path and tunnels! Going for a rustic canyon-like atmosphere, we have to blend a wetter, greener biome into the harsh desert biome, but it's fun and ends up looking pretty neat. We use some lava and lots of cactus and sandstone. We also greet our new subs who've joined us via the reddit post of my Chunky render of the squid farm's roof! Welcome to the channel, lets play some Minecraft!

Episode 85: Anatomy of Failure!! : 03/22/2017 10:12:50 pm3/22/17

So, how long does it take to design something in Minecraft? How many times do you throw away your design work? These are questions EVERY Minecrafter is faced with at some point in their career! And guess what? It feels good to not be alone! In this episode of our let's play vanilla amplified survival Minecraft, we go behind the scenes to see a couple of CryinMo's alternate designs for an particular build. We also finish up a minecart railway (the one leading to our enchanting tower) and we talk about some possible future Minecraft lp series! So join me for another funky episode of letsplay some Minecraft and learn about abandoning design failures!

Episode 84: Blazing Rain!! : 03/21/2017 11:49:35 am3/21/17

Why oh why do the carrots not go into their chests when WE'RE NOT LOOKING?! I need help to find out why our produce goes into the overflow chest rather than the sorting system chest, it's so confusing. But anyway, that's not what this episode of our let's play vanilla amplified survival Minecraft series is all about, no no no. It's all about the blaze rain! Raining blazes! Blaze rods galore! That's right, it's time to build a better blaze farm. No, it's not, we're just building a really good blaze farm designed by NimsTV (and adding a lighting feature so we can turn the thing on and off when we want to. So there! My favorite part is the hallway floor. And of course there is death involved and items lost forever - doesn't every survival Minecraft story?! Of course they do. So join me for another episode of lets play some Minecraft and let's build a blaze farm!

Episode 83: Sometimes The Game Plays YOU! : 03/15/2017 8:00:59 pm3/15/17

Yes, we've all been there, and yes, it sucks. But hey, it's our game and we love it anyway, rage quits or not. In this episode of our let's play vanilla amplified survival Minecraft series, we go for the big daddy, the big kahuna, the big fish ... the ender dragon ... AGAIN! Since we can now spawn the ender dragon multiple times in order to 1) have fun, 2) have fun dying, 3) generate new far end portals and 4) be a spectacle of noob-ness for all of you to laugh at, we decide to do it! And boy, do we learn some lessons! Like how the ender dragon erases blocks, like how Overwatch is a fun past time, like how you should press record when you want to record, you know, and not play like CryinMo, lol. So come join me for another round or two of ender dragon fights and lets play some Minecraft!!

Episode 82: Squid Farm Roof!!! : 03/12/2017 7:11:33 pm3/12/17

Yep, in this episode of our let's play vanilla amplified survival Minecraft series, we put a roof on the squid farm. And it ain't just a plain ol' roof neither, no, ma'am, it is TALL! And I use the following colors: RED. BLUE. SANDSTONE. We also create a tunnel with artisan TNT and put on our shader glasses along with a couple of smash cut building montages. So bring out the breaks and lets play some Minecraft! Tintenfisch haus!

Episode 81: Something Is Wrong With This!! : 03/11/2017 11:17:02 am3/11/17

This episode has CryinMo doing what he does best - doing design work all wrong! Actually, it's not that bad, but it's not all good either. I spend most of the episode (and the better part of two days) terraforming the interior of our massive ocean monument cavern but can't quite put a finger on why I feel dissatisfied with with the design elements. In the end, I finally figure it out and it's the realization that scale is the problem. Our cavern is so huge that intricate terraforming details get lost in the grander scheme of things, visually speaking. So I pose some questions to guys and gals, my loyal viewers and persons of better ideas, lol - HELP ME! Help CryinMo figure out what to do with these insanely big walls and ravines and all sorts of things. But I will say the lava and the small fires look relatively great, so that's something!

Episode 80: Walls, Caverns and Skydiving!! : 03/09/2017 11:33:51 am3/09/17

We learn how to tear up some walls! Make a great cavern out of a cave! Put holes everywhere, knock blocks down and generally make a mess of everything! We also talk about my skydiving experience, and we blow up some TNT with our flame powered bow. Also, we visit the gold farm for a timed XP run!

Episode 79: Waterfalls and Ink Falls! : 03/07/2017 2:28:52 pm3/07/17

We learn how to build an ink farm. Or is it squid farm? Squid ink farm! How to build a farm for farming ink sacs for making black dye farm! Yeah, that's it! A squid ink farm is fairly simple to make but this happens to be the very first farm I've ever made which uses a hopper minecart for drop collection! So that's exciting! (It is, really. No really!) We also test out making our ocean monument look like it's still underwater and add some more scaffolding to our future volcanos!

Episode 78: Rough Plans for Mystery Island! : 03/02/2017 12:07:19 pm3/02/17

Bit of a talky episode - while starting our sketchy plans for Mystery Island, we discuss things like life and ups and downs and how humans persevere through tough situations. I know, heady stuff for a Minecraft video (and possibly boring, let's be honest). But while we talk about these things, we do some land clearing on the island and we install a beach near our lagoon, we find a smuggler's hideout and look at sites for skull island. And we also sketch out the dimensions of our twin volcanoes! All in all a short, disparate episode that's all over the place, but you gotta do some planning before you do some building for a project the size of Mystery Island, that's for sure.

Episode 77: How To Build A Guardian Farm!! : 03/01/2017 12:53:27 pm3/01/17

We start work on Mystery Island, the site of our ocean monument guardian farm! We of course have huge plans for the island, with inspiration coming from Peter Pan's Neverland, Pirates Of The Caribbean and of course Indiana Jones (and maybe even LOST). But it all starts with the guardian farm and how to build it inside the monument. Most guardian farms utilize the space an ocean monument takes up but we are going to figure out how to build a guardian farm inside the monument, because we want the monument to stay intact as a display piece for Mystery Island! Also, spoiler alert, there is a great montage in this lets play episode and a patently un-great death (sad face)!

Episode 76: Hunting the Elusive Llama!! : 02/28/2017 5:44:43 pm2/28/17

We start off with a bit of a talk about creating episodes and producing content over time and on a schedule, yada yada yada. Then we go looking for llamas and that is both a long and beautiful journey, especially in this world with its custom amplified terrain ('cause llamas spawn in extreme hills and the hills in the CryinMo LP world are nothing short of breathtaking). And the reason we're hunting for llamas is because we need a roof on our automatic villager-powered farms!

Episode 75: How To Build A Leather Farm!! : 02/27/2017 4:21:59 pm2/27/17

We check out the villager sorting machine, which is working fantastically, we double our storage for melon slices at the melon farm and then we build a cow farm specifically for harvesting leather with a Looting III sword! There are tons of tutorials available for automatic cooked steak cow farms, but with a little tweaking from CryinMo, we learn how to build a sustainable cow farm that allows us to get maximum leather drops with ease so we can make books and enchanted books and written books and all sorts of book stuff! Camelot County is always expanding, so come along for the ride and let's play some Minecraft!

Episode 74: How To Build A Villager Sorting System!! : 02/25/2017 11:48:54 am2/25/17

We have too many villagers! And not enough librarians. So, in order to send *just* librarian villagers over to our villager trading hall, we need a way to filter out the other villager careers. So we'll build a system that allows to summon one villager at a time, evaluate whether we want to keep him or not and then with the push of a button send him to the Villager trading hall or to the Happy Happy Never Land (lava pit - sad face). We also install EIGHT beacons around our base!!

Episode 73: Potato Farm and Armor Equipper! : 02/21/2017 3:37:22 pm2/21/17

We add another layer to the fully automatic villager powered carrot farm, this one for potatoes! We take a look at a newly designed hallway and then load up a redstone world to work on a simple armor equipper machine, which turns out to be much easier than I thought it would be! Keeping it simple, we head over to the wither skeleton hunting ground to design and decorate the minecart station there and implement the armor equipping dispensers.

Episode 72: How To Build A Fully Automatic Villager Powered Farm! : 02/20/2017 6:03:03 pm2/20/17

I saw a Reddit post where redditor Squomp made an amazing tweak to Unarybit's already incredible automatic villager-powered farm and it was such an elegant modification, it made me want to try it out right away. So we drop everything in this episode of our let's play Minecraft to build our first ever fully-automatic carrot farm! Since we already have a villager breeder nearby, the building of the farm is relatively painless and it turns out to be a fantastic investment of time and effort!

Episode 71: Stairwells and Escape Rooms! : 02/19/2017 12:19:17 pm2/19/17

We do a little redstone tweak to our main produce farm (carrots, wheat, potato collection) and then we start work on completing the interiors of the stairwells leading from the ground up to the different levels of our base - and while we do that, I tell you all about my experience at an escape room!
