For those of you who have been following my videos of the server, you may recall a build of mine called The EDEN Project. (If not, check out my video tour of it here) This build is the result of inspiration for me to create an underground shelter (which I may or may not have thought of while playing Fallout 4) which is located on the main floor of my Mountain Base near Acaciaville, North of Spawn and Noctis Manor. The original build included both flora and fauna sections; a farm with all the crops (minus Beetroot, which nobody on the server has been able to find still) and some animal enclosures across the main corridor.
The newest addition to the Project is a "Seed Vault" which is used to store seeds and other valuable natural resources in case of disaster that could wipe out the crops and such above ground. Such vaults exist in real life, and are valuable safeguards in case something goes wrong with crops somehow. Although that is not a threat in Vanilla Minecraft, the idea is still one that interested me and it seemed to fit the theme of the EDEN vault I had created previously.
While the Seed Vault was not stocked with anything after construction, there are tons of chest slots available to store such materials... and therefore I have sent a message to the members of the server, to help gather surplus resources from our own production and donate them to The EDEN Project. Books were written and distributed to the main mailboxes in front of each server member's house, and donation chests were placed in key areas around spawn: in front of Noctis Manor, in Noctis Imports, in front of the Mountain Base, and at my front door on my spawn estate. (Which is my major project right now... completely overhauling that spawn property and enhancing it to better use the space and create a more beautiful estate. That's a topic for another time, but it may or may not have been inspired by the vineyard "Corvo Bianco" in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's newest expansion two Blood and Wine which is a beautiful estate full of color and intrigue)
So to all members of the Superstes Noctis server, please read the book in your mailbox and donate whatever you can to these donation chests! Your help is greatly appreciated. To them and everyone else, look for more videos on The EDEN Project (and my estate renovation) coming soon to my YouTube Channel. In the meantime, consider the importance of preserving important natural resources as they are vital to your efforts of continuing to survive the night.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Mojang has released bug fix update 1.10.2 for Minecraft. (They seem to like skipping .1 updates, don't they?) I honestly haven't looked at the changelog, as I know these minor updates are just fixes to the game.
So that's all that needs to be said here… Superstes Noctis is now running 1.10.2, for fewer bugs hindering our efforts to continue surviving the night.
