    One of the more rare items I can think of is the glitched leather helmet. In the secret tree rooms of Woodland Mansions, there is one chest that can contain an Efficiency I Iron Axe, but the game can glitch out and give you an Efficiency I Leather Cap instead.

    Here's a little tip for building the backs of builds. Make the back... into the front. Seriously, add a few rooms there where you enter from the back, and that'll help with the necessity and motivation to actually do stuff over there. If you don't frequently visit a certain side of a build it's easy to neglect it, if you make all sides of your build important, then they tend to get less neglected.

    The first Decked Out was amazing, but this second one is absolutely blowing my mind and it's NOT EVEN DONE YET. Seriously, the amount of detail and dedication Tango has to that build? The End aesthetic of just the lobby? Absolutely amazing. I just- there are no words.
    (Also, I love Grian's obsession with rare items. I absolutely get obsessed about similar things haha.)

    how to finish the back of the base: realize you've built the base facing the wrong way, and you already have it done. now you just have to build the front.

    Hear me out, Subterranean Cetacean Station. Cetacean [see-tay-shun] is the family dolphins are in. Subterranean, obviously means underground. If you guys were to build the track underground, you wouldn't have to worry about disrupting builds or the sight line. It'd be pretty cool :)

    Some suggestions for highway:
    Mysticat seems to have already said to make it higher, which is a good idea, and is half of what I was going to say.
    1. You could make a sort of hub like in the nether. This would provide a good stopping point, and you could change directions a bit easier.
    2. With the angled road, don't have flowing water going off of either end. It seems to be pulling you off of the road.
    3. (Possibility, I'm not sure if it would work) Maybe put dolphins all along the road. This might keep the effect active, therefore reducing the number of times you would need to slow down on the highway. Again, this might not work, idk.

  • BlackOak
    BlackOak Month ago +113

    The biggest issue with your builds is that they have "a back".
    One of the first principles you learn in sculpture is they should have POI's all around. They should not have a side that does not have anything interesting to see.
    You build like you're painting, so you never bother thinking about the back.
    My challenge to you for next season is to come up with a design with points of interest on all sides. Do this and you will have no trouble finishing each side, as each one will have a part of the story you want to tell

    28:11 perhaps you could drop down into the ground and speedy under bdubs’ and scar’s shops, then pop up and continue speedy running to everyone’s bases? Not sure if this idea would work, and the mining would definitely take a lot of time, but it’s an idea! :)

    Deepslate coal ore is very rare too, just like the deepslate emerald. Your collection wouldnt be complete without it!

  • Ben Goldberg
    Ben Goldberg Month ago +14

    In addition to putting (grey) glow lichen on the green blocks, you can put vines on some of the grey blocks around it.
    Keeping vines from spreading is as easy as right-clicking with shears.

    The soul soil road could be made into a "rainbow road" type of mini game, like a race track you can compete on. Also a very scenic race track that shows off many parts of your world.

    Have you experimented with different angles for the highway? a 15° angle is a lot straighter then a 45° one. It might just work for a short section to get around the shopping district.

    Every one of your Clip-Share videos that are titled with "It begins" or "let's go" or "Lets starts" has performed very very well on Clip-Share. Theyre part of your top 100 most viewed videos.
    This begins a new beginning! Hoping it hits one of your tops ❤️

  • Danilotl
    Danilotl Month ago +209

    If you're out for rare items, try looking for large fern. Just like the tall grass, you can't collect this item using shears, you'll have to find it in a chest in a taiga village which is also rare itself.

  • Taymarpigeon
    Taymarpigeon Month ago +6

    What about using red stone ore beneath some glow lichen (or vines but vines may be too harsh) to give the effect of small flowers growing in some of the mossy parts of the build. You could also try it with Lapis, diamond, gold or emerald ore if you're feeling flush. Maybe even coal ore for your more spooky builds.

  • Tatiana Lipert
    Tatiana Lipert Month ago +7

    When Etho joined the server this season, he found a double tall fern item in a taiga village. Same with tall grass, it's the only way to get the item.

    Have you thought about doing it underground?
    that way you can even have some nice speed effects due to tunnel design

  • Sun 75
    Sun 75 Month ago +7

    i'd suggest adding an entrance on the back of your build so you see that side more and thus are more motivated to finish it. also a reason to approach from that direction :D

  • Asher McKay

    You need to turn one of the buildings on your floating rocks into a "Museum of Strange Oddities" and display your rare items in it in some fancy way!

  • k r
    k r Month ago +3

    It'd be so neat to see some kind of inspiration from the nether castle from one of the previous seasons hanging from the rocks! Like, an upside down village, maybe? Or a crazy tall house like What Remains of Edith Finch!

  • shwamalama bamalama
    shwamalama bamalama Month ago +4

    this may be a bit late but itd be cool if you designed the water travel system as if it were an aqueduct with archways underneath, you could maybe even push it and ask if you could integrate the aqueduct with the peoples builds its going through to help with the look and maybe add some design

  • Kiwi The Witch Of Blood

    The amount of times I have seen the grass and fern stuff in chests and have literally taken the chests’ contents and tossed those things on the floor to despawn is a great deal. I may hoard a lot of stuff, but “rare” stuff like that just never really gets used where I live. Although, a museum of artifacts, fossils, and rare finds might be neat to have…🤔

  • Raven9010th
    Raven9010th Month ago +3

    If you want to go diagonally, you'd have to significantly widen the track and that would require more dolphins in order to get the full effect across the entire track.

      Either this or getting enough fragments to make record 5.
      The following are a bit less rare, but: deepslate coal, stone redstone ore, or stone diamond ore.
      Or finding a fossil with diamonds underground? Though that can literally take forever.

  • Peter Falk
    Peter Falk Month ago +4

    Honestly, I'd probably put the super speed highway underground. It's a lot of digging and will be hard to get the dolphins in there, but on the plus side you don't have to worry about going through any buildings. Plus bubble elevators are awesome to use.

  • PancakeOfTheOpera
    PancakeOfTheOpera Month ago +2

    The double large fern, which can be found in taiga villages, is also rather rare! :D

  • aMadHatter13
    aMadHatter13 Month ago +2

    The castle looks fantastic! I really appreciate the mini tutorial of the moss gradients too. I find it easier to naturally integrate new techniques into my own building when it's explained so I can't wait to get working on things!
    As for the speed highway, it'll be a bit more work but if you can't go through shops and can't go around shops, can you go under shops? I mean have it as a tunnel like a subway system. Downside of course is the digging but some hermits like Pearl enjoy mindless mining at times. Whatever you end up going with, I can't wait to see it!

  • Calvin Akery
    Calvin Akery Month ago +3

    Deepsllate coal is surprisingly rare

  • Zhop

    have you considered making the dolphin highway underground and just having easily accessible stations at every major stop? This seems like a perfect opportunity to just make it a subway.

    • Naokarma
      Naokarma Month ago

      @Nightmare "when has the hermits ever done something 'the easiest approach'"
      Every episode? With everything that was for purely practical purposes? The only time they don't is when they're going out of their way to be creative, which mainly happens with pranks and builds. Everything else is just messing around, not trying to hyper-optimize for increasingly niche scenarios. You're thinking of Scicraft if that's the impression you got.

    • Nightmare
      Nightmare Month ago

      @Naokarma when has the hermits ever done something "the easiest approach" and no you can't say not doing the back side of builds

    • NateTheGnat
      NateTheGnat Month ago

      I think either this or at build height, build height would be less work just cause you don't have to also dig a tunnel, but both have pros and cons

    • Harrygold8
      Harrygold8 Month ago

      @Zhop Yeah a subway would be very cool like the one they made in Keralis’s city during Grains base in base “phase”. At least it would be easier to get the dolphins underground then at the build limit.
      I mean also seem them building it through the two buildings. Or a crazy solution I had using an Enderperal stasis or some other tricky to pass the buildings (highly unlikely)

    • Zhop
      Zhop Month ago +1

      @Harrygold8 Y'know what, that's probably what they'll go with if I'm being honest, just making it turn left then right.
      I think a subway system of sorts would be cooler solution but by far that's the easier one

  • Justin Chen

    From the front, the new building makes the entire base look more like a single build and the upper rocks look less floaty.

    • The Music Rider
      The Music Rider Month ago +5

      Deepslate Emerald is the rarest block in the game, since emerald ore only spawns in mountains, and at high y levels, thus deepslate emerald is rarer then Netherite.

    For the diagonal speedy water highway, what if the sides were open fence gates?
    They don't have collision boxes, so you can't accidentally run into them.

  • some guy
    some guy Month ago +1

    I wonder if you could design a bubble elevator/drop down chute for the speedway to go under the shops. Whereby the momentum of your running would propel you to the drop down, whilst going over the bubble column, allowing you to drop down or go up, depending on the direction you are going.

  • Nikixu

    I have a feeling that in order to bring Mumbo back to hermitcraft we have to bring him back Taurtis summoning style.

    I swear I took a break from watching hermitcraft for like 5 months and as soon as I decided to start watching it again...

Thats madness. its like this video was made for me

    Etho's content makes me so happy so it's super heartwarming to see him mentioned and appreciated hehe
    also oddly enough, I've found multiple of the double tall grass items just wandering around haha. I think I have 3. I also have something like 10 or so deepslate coal ore... and I think one deepslate emerald ore? Maybe? I can't remember. I've also been collecting any normal stone diamond ores I find.
    the drafts made out of diamond and gold blocks hahahaha

    A double fern is very rare. I think it spawns in taiga villages.

  • Craig Campbell
    Craig Campbell Month ago +392

    For the speedy highway problem, to avoid cutting through the builds of other hermits, why not bury it deep underground, or raise it to the sky above all the buildings, that way the X and Z coordinates stay the same but you just change the Y value.

    • Amy Hart
      Amy Hart Month ago

      @Kaycee Carson Something with slime block's maybe? i think that could work! with trip-wires you could literly jump over a building, plus you get a nice view

    • Pseudodonn7
      Pseudodonn7 Month ago +1

      I believe I know the answer, though I am only guesssing.
      Running it underground may also cause issues with anyone who has mining or farms beneath their base that expand across the region. It might also be harder to plot a course after so long into the season as it would be to plot one above ground.
      The only disadvantage I can think of for putting up high is that it may not be asthetically pleasing. True, it may not be asthetically pleasing now... but I suspect the flourish that will be done to it might dominate the skyline far more than a simple roadway may.
      Again, just guessing and not intending to project my opinions on this. I could be wrong and I don't necessarily believe that such a thing would not be asthetically pleasing nor do I know if it would be that hard to run it underground. I'm just purposing why Grian thought this might've been the best choice.
      True, he may be underthinking it. Or overthinking it... since he put it above ground. :D

    • Zach Slaughter
      Zach Slaughter Month ago +3

      this is what i was thinking. why not put it at the deepest point possible? the sky limit might be an easier option but it might not look as good

    • Kaycee Carson

    I don’t know any rare items in minecraft but you could put them up either for auction between the hermits or maybe even better make a exhibition for it. Maybe sort them after time period in which those might have been normally found within every different period section of you floating build 👍🤔 then of course charge entrance fee for the hermits to visit

    Serena Silvermoon (VT) 26 days ago +1

    A simple solution to the back problem is to not have a back. Or at least... when designing your build... don't build it in a manner where it's only seen from one side. Try and build it where it looks good from all sides. If you start your builds with this in mind, it actually makes it a lot easier to do.

    For the water, moving the highway down/up would allow to avoid hitting things

    Get your rare items turned into trading cards in the game, that would be really cool to have a special rarity like ultra rare or something.

    just treat the back of the base like the front of the base 😂. idk if that would help you overcome your mental block. also if you look at your base from a side view all of the rocks and everything are perfectly lined up vertically. maybe in the future you could add more depth to the rocks and have some of them closer and other further away. just a thought

    I still can't help but feel like moving the entire "rail" underground is the way to go. It's sort of an eyesore up top. Cutting through buildings and all that as well....Could have some fun with it. Making it like a nice little train station/subway station at every base it meets up with, each hermit decorating their stop with their own styles.

      The main issue here is time, the more time you are spending even going to the underground portion of it to start is time away. Is it faster to drop down into say 64 blocks and then take off and then use a bubble elevator or is it faster to just take an elytra right over it for on and off purposes.

      I don’t think it’s an eyesore and it’s better if the ending is above ground but just like real life railways I think it’s important to have it do both. Go above and underground.

    Rare item list: End portal, End portal frame, bubble column (hotbar) and Nether portal block (hotbar) I don't know how to get these but some people do, the end portal frame is only possable if you downgrade minecraft to when they were first added, so that's not something you can do, look up a tutorial and they will show you what to do

    Late comment is late - but on the topic of the back of your buildings, do you think having someone building behind you might encurage you? So you could cosider both side of your building the front? I find when I am not building for "anyone" as it were, I get a bit de motivated.

  • King of the Dark Arts

    Similar to the tall grass, you can get something called a large fern from only a Tiega village, "spruce." you are unable to use sheers on large ferns, if you do you only get a small fern.

    NAME SUGGESTION: “The Mantaway”.
    The Manta Ray is an Aquatic Animal whose flaps look a bit like Wings, so the Dolphins and Elytra parts are represented, and a Motorway is a permanent structure to travel very quickly, mostly in straight lines.
    A different/earlier idea I had was “The MonoWhale”, for similar reasons, but it doesn’t include the wings, plus whales seem big & slow.

    Grian, I like the idea of the road. I think its a very funny idea that Etho came up with. But whould it be better if the road was underground? This way you can avoid all those problems that you mentioned earlier and also it might look a bit better if the speedway wasnt ontop of bdubs roads going through the shopping district. Just a thought, and glad to see hermitcraft vids back again!

    in regards to not finishing backs of structures, think of them as alternative entrances or approaches. s if there are 2 ways into a structure maybe then you will not be bored ?

    A nice idea to tackle the issue of the shops and interrupting other builds and whatnots, would be to build it underground in the form of a sewer; It wouldn't directly stop in front of each base, but it would help with it being a straight line; and as a bonus it would look very aesthetic, having a massive sewer system from one base to another, perhaps with small bubble elevator themed pipes going up and down to each base-stop

    • Kaz49
      Kaz49 Month ago +2

      Sewer cats? YES??
      Also, I reckon keep as much of the highway above ground as possible, it gives the viewers a nice sense of what's where, especially if hermits will be using it a lot.

    • Bryon Yoder

      Either over or under to avoid other peoples bases.
      Water logged stairs on soul soil maintains the effect and allows you to go up. Down doesn't work as well, you shoot forward faster than you fall so you loose contact with the water briefly, but it's not terrible.
      Don't forget splash potions of Swiftness 2 along the route for that extra little bit if stupid speed. :)

      Or they can make It underground only for shopping district with magma/soul sand elevators and transition around shopping district would be to just fall while running and on another direction just a soul sand elevator, or just a hole for elytra fly, or if its so complicated just fly over shopping district and continue highway on opossite side, avoiding some shops. Its like reverse of metro, where most stations are underground and a couple of expections made for on ground stations. Plus it will give unicness to the shopping district station

    • Yury G. Malyshev

      And to be fair, it doesn't have to be all that much underground. Just 20 ish blocks lower that it is right now. It still will be above ground for most of the way it seems!

    • SethNek

      If they turn it into a group project, it might not take too long. Especially if it becomes community transportation. Then they can keep adding pipes the more hermits that want to connect to it.

  • This random person watching videos

    For the highway would you be able to make some 90 degree turns and just add a new boosters?

  • SomeOldOakTree

    What if you just had points where you dropped straight down and run parts of the highway underground, then bubble-vator back up to the surface when you're in the clear?

  • XevianLight

    What if the dolphin highway goes through the shops but gets integrated into the design of the building? There are many real life residential buildings and hotels that have train and rail systems going through them!

    I don't know if it's still possible, but in older versions you could build contraptions to glitch a bedrock item into existence. If it is still possible, that could be an item you could hunt.

    Also have you considered making the dolphine trail more like a subway/train rail and let it go under ground during the shopping district with access points you can fly into???
    It'd be much cuter and interesting than a line in the sky AND just as fast and easy to access. While being able to make it very bare bones and just putting it as a subway line that can be very copy past (and have the ability to have hermits potentially throw graffiti in the tunnels 👀🥰

      @Minalkra ofcourse! It would be far too much of a shame to hide all of it. I'd love to have only the shopping district underground proper, whatever Y level that is I mean. But letting the cute world be shown as much as possible 🥰

    • Minalkra

      Instead of putting it ALL underground, having some 'viewports' into the highway might be a good way to draw attention to it. Digging a deep hole, designing the landscaping to be interesting and having a glass roof over the subway during that part will allow the runner to be seen. I wish there was a way to gently step-up/down the path so that it's not a huge bother to change elevation ... a path of four or five waterlogged halfslabs to change half a block, repeated a few times to change elevation without interrupting the speed? So block-block-lower halfslab-halfslab-halfslab-halfslab-halfslab-lower block-block-block-block-block-even lower halfslab-halfslab-etc?

    • Keith Wiechart

      That’s a really great idea, but just keep in mind that the entire tunnel would have to be dug out. Considering that the Hermit’s bases are several hundreds of blocks apart, it would be a serious undertaking.

    arguably the rarest item is a snowy grass block without snow on it, the only way to get it is to have an enderman pick up a grass block with snow on it in a snow biome.
    well, rare to happen naturally but not terribly hard to get if you want it

    Large ferns are in taiga villages and are just as rare as tall grass

  • Uhh yeah, I sure hope it does

    I played Minecraft yesterday on my survival world and I looted a savannah village and found some tall grass. I didn’t know it was rare until I watched this video, which sent me on a 30 minute run to the village, and another 30 minutes back. It is now hanging on my wall.
