Minecraft… An Escape

I belong to a great community of techy-type people called Indy Hall. I’ve known about the community since 2010 and it’s been around since 2006. It’s one of the first co-working spots in the US if not the World.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic started last year (2020), the community has been a great place for me to escape and be among people even though we couldn’t be in person.

Using the Discord App, Indy Hall has survived the pandemic where others have not.

So what does this have to do with Minecraft? Well, we have a Minecraft realm setup for Indy Hallers and friends. It’s great and an even bigger escape from the craziness of the world.

It was originally started on one member’s machines. When we realized how popular it was getting we moved to the official Minecraft Java Edition Realms.

Right now there are about 10 of us using it and it’s amazing the expansiveness of the world. The different so many different biomes to explore and recently, Nick, our trusty Minecraft gearhead set up a teleportation station so we can get to far-flung spots in the world. One of which is a huge mountain with waterfalls. Strangely even in 8-bit graphics, it’s beautiful.

Part of why I’m writing this is to share some of the screenshots from our world. Another reason is to share my enthusiasm for this community. Without Indy Hall, I’d be so much more down in the dumps.

Thank you Indy Hall, the community and the team, for all that you do.

See you on Discord and/or Minecraft.
