738,404 is the least amount of blocks you must travel without setting homes. 718,404is the least amount of blocks you must travel with setting homes.

This is the route you would have to take, starting at (-15000, -5000).

Hidden

Explanation:

These are the results of my COUNTIF statement on excel to work out how many times each motion must be repeated. 736 blocks 38 times, 114 blocks 1 time, and so on.

This means we can perform the following calculation to figure out the total number of blocks that must be traveled: (736*38)+(114*1)+(655*1)+(81*1)+(432*1)+(351*1)+(9730*27)+(10000*2)+(29730*14)+(9873*1) of which = 738,404. We then disregard the two 10000's should we be able to set homes. Bringing it down to 718,404.

How long would this take to travel? You can travel 100 blocks in 5.5 seconds by flying with speed 2. This means it would take 11 hours and 17 minutes to find every base on the map.

By setting homes at the coordinates marked with an asterisk(*), this would decrease to 10 hours and 59 minutes.

How long for unclaimed bases taking into account visible Y levels ?
