Every time I've started a dig deep map I've always started it with my friend since it makes the digging and mining two times faster, three times faster if ya got 3 friends with ya. Anyway obviously the first thing me and my friend did was run around the whole world to find all the surface-prints. Then as soon as we finished that. My friend suggested we should make a staircase-mine so we did that and it was tiresome work but once we hit around 400-depth we made a base inside the
staircase-mine it was THEE BEST FUN EVER! Since our base kept on destroying it self every rumble, but shortly after the 3rd rumble we discovered that placing wood as a ceiling would stop the rumbling. So we did that every where! However even though blocks wouldn't fall every rumble we still crouched and hid in our 1 by 1 holes in the walls, it was great fun!
After we made the base we carried on mining to 600-depth but it was tiresome returning to that base at 400-depth! So I made my own base at 600-depth, but now money was the problem, tools were breaking, money became shorter and shorter mining and selling was the way to do it but it wasn't generating money quick enough so one-day as I was looking at all the prices in the block shop I realized that logs sold for more than planks but I then realized that you could turn those planks into doors and sell those! This method was like discovering fire! Me and my friend locked ourselves in our bases for hours just doing this to make money!
Buy logs, craft planks, craft doors, sell doors! By the end of it I had a chest full of money. And about a thousand taps on the A button.
800-depth (We got to basalt I think I don't know what depth is basalt but we made it to basalt) Our new method of making money was now mining basalt and turning it into furnaces and then selling those furnaces of course. One morning I noticed that my blueprint spinner was constantly pointing up, the following morning I discussed this with my friend and we came to the conclusion, "WE MISSED SO MANY BLUEPRINTS AND NOW WE HAVE TO GO BACK!"
We mined and mined, tunnel after tunnel, discovery after discovery but then at the end of it all we emerged out with the Ruby Pickaxe blueprint and we thought we were OP as mtn dew and Doritos!
1000-Depth we hit the first hell! I rapidly dropped into a ravenous pool of lava, however pvp was off so I was fine
After I dropped in my friend did, we discovered many diamonds, many rubies but then when it came to leaving we had to find the exit and that was NOT easy.
See the exit was a one-block hole in the ceiling of hell and that was impossible to find! Another thing we split-up so not only could we not find the exit, we couldn't find each other! After hours upon end we caught sight of one-another jumping and that's how we found each other!
But the problem now was finding a way out! Luckily though we had a third guy join us and he stood by the hole and told us the co-ordinates!
We found our way out but our bases were too far apart so again we made our bases however transferring items from our old bases to our new ones was not easy we had to make at least five trips back and up"
After we moved in we were entirely exhausted of playing total miner for 2 days in a row so we gave it a rest.
We forgot about total miner and stopped playing it for a year.
2013 arrives and I'm all bored so I try out total miner again, I'm addicted!!!
However my friend was not on so it was only me mining down. D;
1200-Depth there I was all alone just mining my days away...
1300-Depth still no sign of my friend coming back so just more mining...
1600-Depth eventually I accept that hes not coming back, so I carried on mining away...
1900-Depth This was it I decide to wait for my friend so I go back for some blueprints, I've gotten all the blueprints I've missed...
2013-Depth I HIT MAX-DEPTH I WAS SOO HAPPY!!!! But disappointed that my friend wasn't there.
