Have set up a tiltify so that I can fundraise for Battersea while figuring out minecraft (which I keep typing as micecraft) and streaming.
There’s not much there yet, but coming soon…
First things first, you have to buy minecraft. Beware, there are multiple versions. I’m reliably told that the java edition is what I needed so I headed to minecraft.net to buy that.
(And then I had to fight with the website, which presented itself in Korean for no apparent reason, but I was successful, and now I own minecraft. You’ll need a microsoft account to buy it, and there is more weirdness if you’re under 18, but I’m not, so we’ll sail past that for now.)
Once you’ve bought minecraft you have to download and install the launcher. Panic not if everything seems to vanish – there’s probably a little block somewhere down in your taskbar, go find it and click.
You will then have to login with your microsoft account, and click play, and download a whole bunch more stuff.
(I probably should have advised tea before you started all of this. I got tea, but then I’m used to setting up computer software.)
A small interlude follows while I run around a minecraft world trying to work out what (NotSo)SmallTeen is doing, and doing it all badly and more slowly than him….
(we should have been streaming. I think it would have been hilarious for anyone and everyone.)
And now, dinner.
