    Hey Grian! I found a fix for your futuristic ender prison cell. Instead of vertical end rods I did them horizontally. You might have been told this before but it just came to me so I thought I'd tell you :) love your videos man! Can't wait for hermit craft episode 2

I used to play a lot back in 1.5, and so I don't know about some of the newer things in the game. Idk why I'm writing this, but if you see it I hope you have a wonderful day.
