Minecraft 3rd Life SMP | Ep 04 - Farming Diamonds The Easy Way!
Welcome to 3rd Life, an experimental Minecraft Hardcore mini-series with a twist. 14 Minecrafters with only 3 lives each. During our first 2 lives, we do our best to survive with one another. Once we are on our 3rd life, our goal switches to trying to take out the other members. If we die on our 3rd life, our series is over and we are banned from the server!

    18:23 to skip to part when he gets to it and say #swampydiamonds so I know that this was made useful

    If anyone else wants to go diamond hunting in swamps, keep in mind that this works only for the small patches of clay, not the big ones

    Loved the full content . Having it in the two episodes is fabulous.

  • dman02

    I am scared to use the diamond hunting trick on a server, because I feel like I might get banned for “x-ray”

    • JELLY

      yeah, don’t use it in a server who aren’t about redstone and technical aspects of Minecraft

  • Samburger plays

    Yeah I don't mind if you split up the videos. Can't have you burned out I'd like to see impulse in good shape for every video.

    Just FYI for anyone wondering. I went and tried it, and this trick DOES NOT work on bedrock edition.

    Now that the whole diamonds in swamps thing has become popular they are probably going to get rid of it... or at least change it up a little

    Tried the swamp diamond trick, was genuinely surprised how well it worked 43 diamond with fortune 3 in half an hour!!

  • Samoht

    I've seen the same video about the clay diamond mining. So cool to see someone implement it! I would leave all the patches of dirt/cobble, it makes people invading in boats harder to travel.

    9.09 minutes in Impluse turns evil.

  • BrownR87

    I like the cut up episodes just because I can fit 30-40 min into a lunch, but 50 min is a bit too long for me. With everyone's making long 3rd life videos these days, I had to resort to watching Futurama for lunch today.

  • ThunderJaw

    Does the swamp diamond math work in bedrock

    The trading of the sheep and the villagers eerily remind me of the slave trade. "Let's bring as many as we can we are probably going to lose some on the way."

    About 25:00 . This will probably get buried as I'm late but I've testing this. It's not only in the z+ direction. If the 7 blocks in the z+ direction crosses chunk borders, the z- direction will have the diamonds instead. So far, it worked for me 100% of the time for about 6-7 digs down.

  • Autumn Rain

    I love the multiple videos per recording sesh. I enjoy having the bite size content more times per week

  • Savanna Rae
    Savanna Rae

    It's a tiny bit confusing keeping up with multiple episodes a week per player. I personally would rather have one longer video per player. I typically veg 3rd life on tuesday or Wednesday lol

    I like what you’ve don’t with the videos but I got a bit confused

  • Carrot Bean
    Carrot Bean

    i actually like the long episodes better

  • Pokejedi

    I think two shorter videos would be best since it easily digestible and it might get you more ad revenue?

  • FlyingwithDragons 543
    FlyingwithDragons 543

    I like the shorter episodes. If you could put "Part 1" or "Part 2", it would be easier to match them up to other hermit's episodes chronologically.

    one episode = great .. also we want to see the tedious stuff too!

    I don't know who the best pvp player is, but all that ultra hard core gaming with Skizz should make Impulse a beast at not dying. Quickdraw shield on that creeper has Naked and Scared all over it.

    Tbh the best way to get emeralds is clay with the masons, although that’s assuming you don’t have an iron farm and the villagers that accept iron for emeralds. EDIT: clay is also the best overall because it’s super easy to get early game

    If u do the 2 episodes a session idea u should call them like blank session part 1 and 2 so its easier to line up watches with other hermits episodes

  • The Ivysaurus

    I really liked breaking up what happened into 2 videos. Its easier to watch in short segments instead of all at once. Also it's gotta be better for monetization.

  • Wither Wolf
    Wither Wolf

    What you should do is zombify & cure a librarian twice to get their book to emerald trade down to 1 book per emerald and also get them an emerald to bookshelf trade down to 1 emerald per bookshelf basically making infinite emeralds but hide it.

  • Lauren H Jenquin

    I prefer if you split the episode by 2 or 3, I can barely reach an hour watching something without ended up falling asleep lol

    11:36 look how fast ren moves while shifting

  • Gurplepanda

    I like breaking up the sessions into two episodes. The only disadvantage I find is your second episode might get spoiled.
