I did a bit more planning this evening, and took a bunch of pictures to share.
This project will involve moving my church 3 blocks north to accomodate the new structure that I’m planning. Thanks to WorldEdit, this won’t be such a horrible project. As simple as copy and paste really 🙂
I went off into the backyard of Cair Denbar and I’ve constructed a sort of template or testing structure based on my measurements of the area I have to work in, including the spots where it will connect to the already existing structures. This gives me the ability to play around and figure out how I want it BEFORE I level half the structure, and then decide I don’t like it. Yes, I’m paranoid. This castle is like my baby. haha
I’m actually looking at a LOT of new, created space. Which is good, as the main purpose for this reconstruction is to make things more spacious, a bit larger-feeling. I also need to create some new space for the Imperial Senate. Right now I’m arguing with myself over where to place the main hallways. I’ve always had an issue with where to locate the stairs up to the Throne Room, as its upstairs from the “main level” of the whole castle. I’ve honestly relocated them 3 or 4 times already. This time around, I’m considering changing the approach of the main hallway, so it won’t interfere with the stairs quite so much.
Its all still a work in progress. If you want to follow my progress on this project, make sure to bookmark this link!
