2b2t Minecraft - starting a YouTube channel

EricBall

1,237 views

I am going to start a YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxuqdYak8Q81EUkUeSDoUVg of my 2b2t experience. My plan is to kill myself so I start back at spawn, then work out from there. Hopefully passing along a few bits of wisdom for new players and a few laughs.

I'm bringing home a headset from work tonight to see how that works out. QuickTime does a great job of recording the actual gameplay at 4K then converting it down to 720p for YouTube.

Recorded my first video and uploaded it. While the online YouTube editor would probably be good enough for my needs, the post-edit processing seems to get stuck in limbo. And unlike the post-upload processing, there's no status bar so I have no idea how much longer it will take or how long I should expect it to take.

The video is nothing but walking.

 

I'm suspecting the 2sd part would be fun when the dark comes out and mobs may appear. I wonder how do you survive in the first night without dying.

Chapter 1 part 1 and 2 are both up! And yes, there is a lot of walking - it's how to survive.

 

Actually, surviving nights isn't bad while you're on the move as very few mobs spawn. It's when you stay in one place that it becomes difficult.

You managed to find food on the way.

 

I begun to play 2b2t since yesterday,

 

I just met a spider who, after killed it, gave me 2 strings.

 

It's enough to make a fishing pole.

 

From now, I'm surviving by fishing.

 

If you find a house with "robingravel's" written on the sign, it was me.

I've decided not to continue the channel. Primarily because it was impacting my ability to play 2b2t when I wanted, doing what I wanted, for as long (or short) as I wanted.

 

The lack of positive feedback (and the negative feedback) made the decision easier. I also decided I wasn't really contributing much to the community.

 

Maybe if I get some positive feedback on the existing videos I'll do another one. It's not difficult or even time consuming.

 

Meanwhile I've established a new base, done some mining and built a grinder around a zombie spawner. Unfortunately the server seems to be offline - hopefully temporary.

2b2t was great at first but I lost interest of this server because I always get killed by players and my home gets grief.

 

Walking and talking are not existing either. That's why few people left comments to your videos.

 

No offence taken i hope.

No offense taken, it's an honest statement.

 

Personally I haven't had any issues with PvP (I've only seen two other players & neither attacked me) or anyone griefing my bases. However, I am thousands of blocks away from spawn and the primary axes and it's rare when I even see evidence of other players.

 

I have installed Ambient Occlusion's X-Ray mod, which shows how futile it is to try to disguise a base.

 

Right now I'm journeying back to a base. I got turned around so last night I ended up farther away than when I started. So I've decided to tunnel down to diamond level and journey there, using X-Ray to gather diamonds along the way.

Are you going to make new videos.

 

Also, be careful with x-ray mod. If someone catches you using x-ray, you would be banned. It would better not using x-ray in your videos.

2b2t has no rules, no moderators; it's a true anarchy server. Client side cheats like x-ray won't get you banned unless they have a substantial negative impact on the server.

 

It's actually interesting mining with x-ray, although it removes a lot of the challenge. I spotted a pair of dungeons very close to each other last night, so I'm going to see if I can turn them into a single XP grinder. (Hopefully they are one zombie & one skeleton.)
