Avid gamers and future farmers wowed the creators of Food For Mzansi’s Minecraft World in the game’s latest challenge that saw players build futuristic farms in a barren, outback desert setting.
Much like in the real world, the desert’s harsh environment and scarcity of water challenged players in the game. The harsh and extreme living environment presented the perfect conditions to challenge a group of players to come up with top-notch ideas on farming in the desert with limited resources.
Coordinator of the Minecraft challenge, Gareth Davies said the Minecraft challenge tested the player’s ability to apply climate-smart farming principles within the Minecraft world.
To make things a bit more interesting and possibly difficult, players were provided with only arable dirt blocks and a bucket.
“The desert environment in Minecraft receives no rainfall and only cactus and sugar cane can grow within the sand,” Davies said. “The builds that our players created ranged from smaller oasis type builds, greenhouses to large scale production builds.”
