      @Mumbo Jumbo what if someone breaks the blocks then places a block to replace the missing block at the item security system? 🤔

      No one cares about the judgement of someone who can’t speak proper English and uses emoji’s to send a message. Just shut up, no one gives a shit.

    Something I find works good is have a Button hidden under a Block, so all you need to do is have a Sign or a Marker where the Button is and people will never find your Base unless they happen to dig up that Exact Block

      WCFFFDWMP hybrid Devil goddess No one should need to ask this but if your genuinely running towards a goal why are you looking at the ground!? I mean be my guest its your own save, but please answer this question if you’re running across a field, and you run down a hill why are you looking at your feet. Keep in mind this hill is small this isn’t a cliff you could die from everyone knows it takes 6blocks just to start damage. Yeah just curious unless you don’t and just wanted to be special for a comment. Cause like why? We all saw it. We know its there lol.

    I would like to see someone dig out a 12x12 chunk. Then around the 12x12 chunk that goes to bedrock to sky, dig out another chuck surrounding the 12x12 chunks. (That's 12 chunks wide, on all sides, not 12 blocks.) The surrounding chunks, fill in with obsidian. One chunk deep, surrounding the 12 x 12 area. Take it above ground level. Now use that to make a hidden base. Player breaking in, takes fall damage. And has a hell of a time getting out without a diamond pickax. Hope that pick is enchanted so as not to break, lol. Surround the ground to floor layer exterior in a lava flow. After digging it out, dress it up. Czar's palace? Space that large you'd have room to build anything you want on multi floors.
    Someone could get lucky and break one of the dirt blocks on the side, then just come though the wall on this build. It's not impenetrable what you've built here Mumbo. It's good for ideas, but not thief proof.
