This is my stab at the Minecraft 404 Challenge. This Part 1 of my second attempt. Let's see how long the author of the "Minecraft: How to Survive & Thrive" series can last! Wish me luck!

Oh, feel free to keep track of my score. I'm playing on HARD so I get a 1.5x multiplier. Thanks!

The 404 Challenge forum thread is here:

Snipped from the thread:
1. You have until night fall to gather supplies. Spend your time wisely! Once night hits you MUST venture into the hole, never to return to the surface again!

2. You can gather any resource you find top side, but venturing into any other caves (for iron mostly) is not allowed. Sunlit caves are allowed.

3. You must not break ground on the 404 gravel until you are ready to enter the cave. You are intended to be finding shelter for the first night, digging the gravel, and discovering the cave. Once you break ground on the gravel, you must enter the cave.

4. Once you enter the cave, you must descend all the way to the bottom! The waterfall has swept you into the deepest parts of the cave.

5. No torches! If you whine about why you can't use torches, just STFU. Real men use lava for light anyway! (Redstone torches, jack-o-lanterns, and flint n' steel are OK!)

6. Survive and thrive. Don't simply build a wall around yourself. Explore. Build. Progress! Your 'score' will be based on what you accomplished, not simply how long you survived.

7. Only mine ores that are is visible. If you see an ore, you can mine it and the blocks around it to see if you got all of it. No branch/strip mining allowed. You are spelunking/surviving here, not at your 9 to 5 mining job.

8. Difficulty must be either Normal or Hard. If you play on hard you could get a 1.5x score multiplier.

9. 1 life. If you die the challenge is over. Start a new 404 world if you want to try again.

10. No inventory edits or 'cheating' of any kind. Using F3 to see mob locations is considered cheating as well.
