|Home Ugly Home|
The trap I built is pretty straightforward. I carved out a chamber sized for a flowing-water floor, which pushes the spawned spiders to one wall. That wall contains a one-high slot edged with unclimbable glass. Spiders get pushed into the slot by water, and forced against cactus (see, desert power!) which kill them. A one-wide water trough runs below this, sweeping drops to a collection point. Done.

Hmm. What else. Oh yeah, I finished off the cactus walls that provide nominal surface safety near my base of operations. Since they ran between cliffs and ocean, they're not 100% secure, since monsters can come over the cliffs or swim around, but they help a lot. And since I had an ocean available, I decided to build a moat around the outside too.

Let's see, I'm sure I'm forgetting something -- Oh yeah, I started a fishing pier and house. Which hasn't gotten very far yet. I've done enough to say that I really like the colored clay blocks for building! Theoretically they're about as tough as stone, and there's no processing involved to get a nice smooth look. Great stuff. Now I'll have to see if I can make something attractive out of these materials.
