There seems to be something very satisfying about automating the production of something in Minecraft. I've never really bothered with it in the past, but now I can really see why people do it. We are underway with building and creating random stuff on the map, I thought I'd work through some tutorials and see what I can come up with.
It is very satisfying to see a "machine" take shape, the simple brilliance of their design and how well they have been condensed into such small builds by people in (I'm sure) many iterations. I'll post some pics of a few later.

This was what she came up with just this evening. I popped back, after what seemed like not very long, to see that she had pretty much got all she wanted built for the night and was about to logoff. That is pretty impressive for one night's work. Love it. Take a bow, Rux.
