=== SHORT STORY ===
my personal twist to the FlashShelter Mod

=== LONG STORY ===
last week i was wandering the minecraft forums and stumbled upon the FlashShelter Mod. from what ive got, its a mod that allows you to quickly construct an interim home-worthy building without having to venture out too far and risk life and limb (for them badasses that dont play on peaceful). but of course you need to craft all the necessary parts for your insta-shelter, or a savvy single player command. the default choices are a standard home with the basics (working bed & door, plus workbench, furnace, and chest) or a deluxe home which has all the basics and a cake! im serious! no it is not a lie. a decent example of this mod in use is, who woulda guessed it, youtube!

anyways, a recent update for the mod included a very simplistic editor which allowed users to create their own shelters, although within frustrating constraints - especially in my case. although you can use virtually any material in the minecraft universe to construct your dream home, you were constrained to a 7x7x7 cube, no more, no less - and you had to use all of it or risk some dead space. why is this relevant you ask? i looked at the default home designs and was disappointed, because it was not my particular taste in design. i wanted to take my Highland Homes with me wherever i went, but a 7x7x7 cube had its limitations. then i thought, what a fun challenge to tackle! so after going through numerous ideas and layouts, i finally settled on something that appeased my needs, and thats whats posted here. i put the chest in the floor and the workbench in the wall to capitalize on floor space, and the glowstone makes for better lighting (in my opinion) than a torch.

this is my attempt at a portable modern home. i hope you guys like it :D

Customized Painterly with my own personally made bed, which i made to look like a cot because portability is a must in minecraft :P

BRILLIANT! I love the style of this little house, I think i'm gonna steal the blueprint to use as an outpost schematic.

I like staking my claim in places nobody will ever care about with these.

Definitely.

Now since i've been particularly fond of the airship mod in the NOW mod pack among other things, I think it would be fun to put up those kinds of outposts from time to time during my endless adventures through nowhere.

makes me sad that Notch hasn't really integrated that.

Well i'm quite sure there's a lot of legitimate financial and publicity reasons why he hasn't yet, but at least it's one of the few mods that seems to have that future potential of seamlessly integrating with the basis of minecraft without breaking the basic game mechanics.

But hey, that's why we have mods. If there's one reason I love minecraft besides the game itself, is the amazing community behind it that supports it so much to make it the gaming phenomenon it is today.

amen to all that. sometimes even though a game is great by itself, mods just add to the extensive experience

Well this has been a fun chat. And I'm sad I haven't gotten to minecraft all day yet.

How do you use a mod?
Reply
:iconcrazyronn:
CrazyRonn Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011
what a simple question with a lengthy answer lol

you need to have something to open up the minecraft.jar file located inside the file %appdata%/.minecraft/bin which can be WinRAR or 7zip. i use WinRAR. once open you delete the META-INF folder inside the .jar and drag and drop the files that need to be placed into the .jar and place any other the readme or forum say to put in the %appdata%/.minecraft folder. its simple, but for more specific mod installation instructions, i recommend google :D
