  • Elsewhere: Planning Stages

    I’ve started some vague planning on my next creative project in Minecraft!  I’ve setup a new large-biome world in 1.14, and I’ve been scouting out the perfect location for a week or so now.

    My overall plan is to build a city-state, with a castle, walled city, smaller town, and villages/farms.  The big difference is I want to build GRANDER.

    Most things in Alpha are pretty small, as I began it all years ago before I really perfected my building styles.  Last year I built the Catacombs beneath Agrazahn, and it was so much grander than everything else!  I want to build more like that.

    This new world is also going to be less restricted than Alpha.  Alpha was limited to medieval/fantasy – no spaceships, etc.  The new world has no restrictions like that, but one simple limitation. Everyone who builds there has to build only ONE place.  Once its finished, they can go build something else.  I just don’t want it to end up like Alpha with dozens of half-built abandoned projects.

    Anyways, I’ve been scouting.  I believe I’ve settled on my location….  Not 100% sure but getting there. Its a nice sized area along a coastline bordered by a dense mushroom forest.

  • The Money Bin

    My big project is finally finished!  Back in the middle of July, I undertook my first large-scale project in Demonreach. I built Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin!

    It has also become the public storage facility for the spoils of our Gold Farm, and for other assorted valuables 🙂

    Special Thanks to Perry for working on the new mountainside!!

  • Demonreach Update

    Its been awhile since I showed off our survival village in Minecraft, so here we go!

    Demonreach Village is the main location on our 1.14 survival world, also named Demonreach.  It started out as a naturally generated village, right near the spawn point.  Early on, we planned to mark out the spawn chunks to use for building farms that would always be running, so we settled into the village nearby.

    The village has gone through quite a few changes and upgrades over the last few months.  We currently have several public buildings that house stuff available for anyone on the server to use.  These include a General Store, Tavern, Blacksmith Shop, Meetinghouse, Post Office, Schoolhouse, Library, and Apothecary.  We also have public farms for every growable type of crop, as well as several mob farms.  We’ve been through 3.5 Iron Farms so far, as updates keep breaking the villager mechanics that make it run.  Perry just recently finished our most advanced farm yet: a pigman gold farm built at world height above the nether.

  • Demonreach Village

    We started Demonreach about a month ago, and we’ve been quite busy.  I finally decided to take a moment and take some pictures of our little community we have going.

    Most of us settled down near a village near the spawn point, and we aptly named it Demonreach Village.  Perry and I are right in the village, with Lee and Chris right nearby.  Nick settled down near the spawn point, and Chas and Mike ventured even further.


  • What to do next in Alpha?

    With the completion of Morband, I’m not sure what to work on next in Alpha.

    I have three locations I’ve been planning out for some time now, all with different levels of plans and ideas. I figured I’d explain them bit here, and hopefully get some feedback on what to work on next 🙂

    TALMAR: City of Dwarves
    A large, underground city built into a massive cavern. It will be home to a kingdom of dwarves. So far, I just have the cavern dug out.

    EVERMORE: City of the High Elves
    A city far to the north, home of the High Elves.  I have an epic location picked out, and plan on building some tall spire-y buildings.

    TANGLEWEALD: City of Wood Elves
    This city has been planned for the longest time.  It is located in the center of the Great Jungle, and I’ve had vague plans to build a city here for quite some years now.  Problem is, building in the jungle sucks.  I feel like I should work on this one first, but it would be the most work. I need to clear a ton of jungle before I can really start planning anything. I just have a location picked haha.

     


  • Castle Morband is complete!

    After months of work, Castle Morband is finally complete!

    Morband is inspired by Mordor, as it is home to a dark similar to Sauron – Zedron, the Lord of Outer Night.

    Here are a few pictures!  If you want to see more, check out the page on minecraft website!

  • Minecraft: Progress in Morband

    I have finally gotten back to working on Morband.  I finished the outside of the twin towers, and have most of the final building finished. Instead of a tower, it has a giant spire 😀

    Perry helped me out with some inspiration as always, and he built me a neat diagonal bridge with an arch!

    Progress is still continuing, I have to work on most of the interior still.
