    Hey!

    My name (in game) is drives_a_ford. I do drive a ford (a 2002 Ford Focus in fact, it's red).
    I'm 27 and I'm from Estionia. I'm working in the university as an Early Stage Researcher and studying for my PhD in Engineering physics.

    I've been playing games on and off since we got our first computer some 16 years ago. I've played many types of games, including but not limited to FPS's, space simulations, strategy, building and so on.
    I started my gaming with games like Cossacks European Wars and Diablo II. The first online game I played was Freelancer - hundreds of hours of fun on there when I was young :)
    However, I've probably played an FPS game most of all. That game is the US Army made America's Army Special Forces (version 2). I've spent a documented 3500h on there. In fact, the game was sacked by the US Army back in late 2011 and we (the community) still keep it alive to this day.

    As for MineCraft, I've probably been playing for 2-3 years. I'm not entirely sure. I started off playing Single Player but have now played on a handful of servers (not too many). I find that when I've been on a server long enough, I don't really find much to do anymore.
    I'm the kind of player who doesn't really bother themselves with aesthetics, I tend to build things that have a function rather than look good. I like gathering resources and usually have a lot of them before I even think about making a house. Right now I'm just held up on the bottom of a mountain :)
    I like to build automatic farms (built a Sugarcane farm, next will probably be Pumpkin and Melon). Not my own designs, following YouTube tutorials. I'm fairly decent with Redstone, but nothing too majestic.

    Anyway, that's me. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I may not look it, but I am friendly :)

    Welcome! Sounds like your play style is similar to mine lol. Last 2 maps, I lived in a literal "man cave," just a cave I found out in the middle of nowhere. I was fortunate enough this map to find an NPC village though and it even has a zombie spawner right next to it! Anyways, I hope you enjoy your time here on IH and if you need anything in-game, don't hesitate to ask. I'll usually respond right away if I'm online and not AFK.
