I like to live in the trees. CheckyYes, I said trees. That sounds like a crazy idea, right? Well, I'm gonna give you a guide to do this. I dig in the ground, then pick up the freshly dug-up dirt. I will then use the dirt tiles to kinda make stairs up to a tree, while I sit at the top of these make-shift stairs I dig a hole in the tree. You can dig more holes to put a workbench in your tree house, and even a bed! But also, like almost everything else, living in the trees has its downsides, let me go over these. 1. Pumpkinheads can still kill you even when you're really deep inside your tree, as the pumpkin grenades (as I call them) can somehow still eat away at your health meter. 2. Being forgetful can be fatal in more than one way. If you forget to destroy the top stair that leads to your hideaway, a zombie who is just in the right place could waltz right up those steps and crash your party if you're not prepared. Another way forgetfulness is bad is that if you forget to replace that top step, and you come out of from your all-natural house, you will lose some health and possibly die from the fall (depending on the tree's height). Now, let's go over the advantages and fun stuff! 1. If you're sometimes a night wanderer like me, you can basically set up a death trap for zombies, I will tell you how to do it. Get the attention of 1 or 2 zombies, then lead them to your hideaway of height. Take advantage of the fact that the zombies are slower than you and after you go into the tree house, destroy the top step so the zombies end up falling down. Whether this trick injures or kills the zombies, this is helpful to you. Using this trick, I not only got a laugh each time, but I also got an iron ingot once or twice from the zombies. 2. I like to make holes in the tree that goes all the way through to use as a window (if you like, you can use glass made from the furnace) , so I can spy on that flock of sheep over here or those two turkeys..... Uh, nevermind the turkeys....Anyway, you can also use a window to see if those pesky pumpkinheads are coming to spoil your fun. Well, that's all I have. I hope you liked my none-too-short guide to living the good life in the trees! It would be appreciated if you told me what you thought of my weird housing habit and about how you play in survival mode in the comments below.

Haha, not with my diamond sword!! On the current game I'm playing, I spent the.entire first day killing passive mobs and chopping trees down, then upon the sky getting dark, I ran to a secret underground mine that I discovered while gathering wood (the reason why it was secret is because the hole which I saw the mine through was only one unit tall, I had to quickly mine through the dirt and stone to get to the cave.) Luckily, no monsters of any kind ever spawned in the cave, so I could mine in peace. I literally lived uner rocks for 10 days. (I counted, and I could tell whether it was night or daytime with the sky  visible when I was a certain distance from the wall I was facing.) After fully equipping myself with full iron armor and luckily finding enough diamonds to craft a diamond sword, I gathered my stuff and came back up to the surface. I decided to take a break from living in the trees and started building myself a house out of cobblestone. (More like a castle) I intend on digging a pit that goes al the way down to the bedrock and around my castle, so if those monsters try to make an uninvited entrance, it will go like this: Zombie: "Hey, Jack, I'm gonna go try to kill Warrior27t." Pumpkinhead: *sees death pit* "Uh, I don't think that's a good idea." Zombie: "What, do you think he's going to kill me!? Pfft, don't make me laugh with my rotting vocal chords." Pumpkinhead "No, it's not that--" *sighs as he sees Zombie stumbling towards the pit* Zombie: "Whheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee------" *splat* Me: "Hey, what are all those noises?" *looks in the pit, sees rotten flesh in the bottom* Me: "Oh," *walks back into the castle cackling* Ok, I'm done with that now. If I can find a screen recorder, I can show everyone what I'm doing and, if the coordinates for that secret cave are the same in several different games, I can tell you the directions to it.

Lol!Cool! But when I was talking about the spiders killing me,I meant,them killing me though the floor....glitches are in the game. xD

BlueTangsRock

But it was funny about the thing with the Zombie,and Pumpkin head! xD

Warrior27t

Thanks! I just wrote that part mainly to be funny, but the main idea of the pit and the rotten flesh at the bottom of it are true, (But I also would have come out of my castle then walked back in cackling in real life, if zombies were to make noises when they die) I'm glad you found that funny! By the way, thank you for telling me about the attacking through the floor glitch, I will remember that!

Hey! I would love to see your videos about WoC!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

But it was probably quite hard to dig all the way to bedrock all around your house though!But it's a great strategy to play the game by!and you also get lots of different items in that process to!
I also have some advice you could do later on in the game:you can find at least a few diamonds in every world chunk(16×16 wide),and when saplings are added to the game(along with a few other things),you could start an underground survival world,and could even record it and make it a series to post on the site,or YouTube! Also i've found green zombie's only rare drop is iron ingots,and pumpkin heads,and blue zombies are the ones that will drop carrots and potatoes!strange right?

And since Olga is on here as well,how do I post my WoC videos to the site? Need help!

Update: When I went around looking for chickens to trap and breed, I forgot my castle's coordinates and got lost then died in the night.  I had 3 dumpkinheads on my tail, then when i turned around and started fighting them, my diamond sword was rendered useless because I wasn't close.enough to attack them due to the knockback of their attacks. If I ever manage to find that secret mine again, I'll be sure to keep track of my home's location. AND KILL THOSE STUPID DUMPKINHEADS!! XDDevil

Hey,if Survival Multiplayer gets added to World of Cubes,do you want to play together on the game?

Warrior27t

Definitely!

So I heard solverlabs team is adding Survival multiplayer on Planet of Cubes,before World of Cubes,but they're almost done with programming survival multiplayer to the games!

Warrior27t

Wow, cool! i can't wait!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

Yeah! I can't wait either! :D but one thing in World of Cubes that makes no sense...why aren't there saplings? xD

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Haha, ikr

BlueTangsRock

Yeah,Olga should add it in one of the very nearby upcoming updates because one of the most important materials(wood)is limited,and there could be so many more possibilities of places people can live on World of Cubes(like maybe underground survival,or a sky block thing,and lots more other stuff)and there has to be a reason to go through all that time mining all of those un-decayable tree leaves! Apples could be another thing Solverlabs could add into the game.hopefully Olga or someone else in solverlabs team adds these 2 things to the game in a very nearby upcoming update!

Warrior27t

Hey! Do you want to post your Youtube video to the site!? 

Warrior27t

I don't have any videos yet, but What do you mean by "site"? Do you mean the regular website or just the forum?

Olga
Olga's picture

I mean forum! You can post here YouTube video using link to the video, but you can't upload video to the forum!

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Oh, ok. Whenever I have one, I would like it posted on the forum! I intend on making a video version of "Strategy to playing Survival Mode: Live in the trees." tonight. (The reason why I have to make the video tonightis because I don't have enough continuous break time during the day to record an entire video AND edit it and rotate it. )

Trees are the only thing I CAN live in. Im too much of a noob to build a house myself.

Warrior27t

Lol. The only time I tried to live in something other than the ground or trees, I got lost and died.

Guys have you clothed armor? 

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Yes, that time I got lost and died I had full iron armor, but armor doesn't stop the knockback of the pumpkinhead's attack!

Olga

You should wear the strongest armor - Diamond Armor ;) 

Warrior27t

I wanted to get that, but I could only find enough diamond ore to build a diamond sword!

Can you still post my videos to the forum?

Hmm good strategy I have a small bunker dug into a hill.Buuut two pumkin heads came and staked me out!Worriedand my sword had just broken so I had to leave and get stuff to make a wooden sword! I fought them and retook my base. But I am currently watching a rather large group moving nearby. Updates on my profile soon.

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Thanks! A large group of pumpkinheads?

Scorch

Yup id estimate about 20 or so (with a couple of zombies mixed in) the horde stopped just north of my bunker and a few attacked me. Currently attempting to get them under control.

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Wow, that's a lot! That's even more than I've ever seen on my screen at any time! Good luck!

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

By the way, it might have been better to stay in your bunker, because if you weren't careful enough, the pumpkinheads could have kept you away from them altogether with that pesky knockback of their's!

Scorch
Scorch's picture

Yeah I dug an escape route. But soon I am gonna create a tree house to go to soon. (Thanks btw the horde isnt dieing anytime soon)Sad

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Ok! but make sure to build a fence around it so pumpkinheads don't kill you!

BlueTangsRock

That guy got invaded by hordes of zombies and pumpkin heads,while I'm invaded by hordes of wolves,and spiders! xD

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Lol!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

Yep,wish string had more varied uses,and wolves were actually useful,then maybe I'll enjoy the hordes of wolves and spiders....also why are all zombies and pumpkin heads in WoC male adults?why no female adult,male baby,and female baby zombies and pumpkin heads? That's An update to green zombies,blue zombies,and pumpkin heads that Solverlabs should really add in a nearby update(also for the zombies and pumpkin heads to drop pumpkin seeds at a 1.5% chance,melon seeds at a 1% ,and squash seeds at 2% when you kill them).

^Olga,and Solverlabs team,what do you think about this idea?^

Warrior27t

Wrong section!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

I know,but I know Olga been on this page before,and every time I request it elsewhere,solverlabs never noticed it. True story(Ideas for additions for World of Cubes section#5 or #6 forgot which one...)!

Olga

BlueTangsRock i can't answer for this question now, we need to analyze these features first! But any way all the suggestions from our players are very helpful for us! 

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

Oh, I get it!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

Ok,I just hope Solverlabs likes the idea,because I believe it could slightly improve the game.

Warrior27t
Warrior27t's picture

You have lots of ideas. Where in the world of cubes do you get them all?!

BlueTangsRock
BlueTangsRock's picture

Well,there's a tonight of ways I get my ideas for this game,there's the fact that I sat though almost 2 years with out an update So I know alot of stuff in this game,and built up ideas of interesting,easy,or realistic ways of adding much needed stuff like dyes,different plants,tree types,bones,lava,water,nether/Ender items/blocks,and more. That's the main reason why! :)
