Adventures in Feed the Beast: Exploring

My gold shovel of exploration.

    Well my strategy to focus on only one or two mods in Feed the Beast seems to have worked for me.  I am toying around with Thaumcraft 3 and IndustrialCraft 2.  I managed to find several other islands and a larger land mass not to far from my lovely island home.  I have brought back rubber and rubber tree saplings, which I planted all over a nearby island to farm.  I also brought back feathers and leather.  I even found acacia trees.  They are rather nice to look at.

    I am already making some use out of the alchemy turning metals from one to another.  This was super helpful when I needed just one more tin to build something in IndustrialCraft 2.  I also seemed to have spawned more than a few wisps in my experiments.  I have been lucky that either none of the wisps have been mean (hostile) or that I have just been lucky and out of their line of sight.  I have a growing lab on top of my hidey hole

Found a new biome.

    It is not so much a hidey hole any more as it has stair cases and rooms.  The wall around the front door is slowly being replaced with brick.  I would eventually like to build a castle like tower to put my lab in, but for now I am just building onto what I have.

    After several experiments and a couple upgrades I ventured back out to what I am currently calling the main land.  I went out exploring and managed to lure one of the ocelots into being my pet cat.  I have named him Simon.  Simon and I ventured deeper into the mainland and found a mountain range full of red rock.  It is a biome that I was not previously familiar with.  It has been fun to explore and I have started building a second fully functioning base.

    Anyone else play Feed The Beast Ultimate or any other form of Minecraft?  What are your favorite things to do in the game?
