I recently started playing Minecraft Pocket Edition. After a couple failed attempts at Survival, I made a safe shelter, complete with a well-lit underground tunnel connected to the spawn point, so I can never get lost.
After creating my own, huuge mine, and making me some iron and gold equipment with iron swords and pickaxes, I was already discouraged by the outside world.
First off, I'm arachnophobic. Even pixel spiders can make me jump out of my seat, especially when they have faces carved in fire on them. You can imagine the joy when, while peeking out of the door at night, a spider as tall as my house just casually strolled by.
Day one: I get out in the sun to gather some wood... and a freaking Enderman is teleporting around the place. After a moment's indecision, I rush out with an IRL warcry and whack him to death with a wooden sword. Don't ask... He didn't even drop anything.
While gathering said wood, I got pushed forward and lost three hearts. I turned around to see a sizable crater that wasn't there before. I concluded it was a Creeper.
Then I switched to "easy" mode, which means no hostile mobs spawn. I'm enjoying it so far because I can explore without being jumpscared every three seconds... but I miss the challenge of survival, even if cave exploration is made more enjoyable.
So... any tips to get in shape, or am I better off in pacific mode?
