Our group has decided that we want to build are city in the plains and to build by a river for a water source. In class we came up with the percentages of the 6 different types of land usages in cities. We determined what types of buildings go in each type of land usage. At the end of the week we started a rough sketch planning out the layout of our city.

This week we finished are layout of the city and began in our minecraft world. We picked an island that we felt best suited the land that we needed for the city. I was tasked with clearing out the trees and land that we do not need in our city.
This week I finished building the boat house and started to work on the tower. I also cleared out some more land to build houses on. Chase killed my pet horse.
