I'm really happy with this build, and I think I learnt a lot while making it.
I will briefly describe the process for you:
I started with two large lines, one straight going up the shore, and one diagonal in the water. I then fleshed out the lines into shapes to create the hull.
After that I added masts and sails. For the sails I used different colors; white for the dry parts and grey to show the soaked and submerged parts.
This was followed by adding details to indicate the remains of the ship's furniture, cargo, and equipment
Finally I had the tremendously rewarding pleasure of spreading out bits and pieces of wood everywhere, as well as setting some parts on fire. Just to show how powerful of an event the wrecking of the ship was.
Build 2 : A factory doubled as a tree-house
Ok, here is my first build! I misread the challenge a bit, so this is just a big tree doubled as a factory =D
So I built a pumpkin and cookie factory as a big tree. It's assembly line is very primitive! The ingredients are produced in the factory branches (pun intended!) and just thrown down to the bottom of the trunk where the crafting tables are. =D Then the products are stored in minecarts with chests and shipped directly into the next build which also has a trunk of sorts... *SUSPENSE!*
Top: Chickens on carpet-covered hoppers. Branches: bottom left wheat, top left pumpkins, top right sugar canes, right cocoa beans
Nothing fancy in this trunk
Build 10 :A torture chamber
In the form of my family's car in the 1990's, a Peugeot 505 GTI... imagine being stuck in endless sun and traffic on the highways through central Europe with sweaty and unhappy siblings at your sides:D
I drew the first Minecraft skin of myself for this picture! Have a cookie or a pie!
Build 8 : A reincarnation of your house
Well, my apartment at least!
It consists of a corridor connecting three rooms, a bathroom and a kitchen. It also has an outdoor terrace. Check out the images in the spoiler for a more detailed explanation and walk-through.
Corridor. The apartment entrance is to the right. To the left, music studio followed by bathroom and workshop/kitchen at the end. Behind is office, workout area, bedroom/library and terrace. The following pictures are posted in the order listed here.
Music recording studio. The potato is an Avantone mono-speaker =D and the ironbars a microphone hanging from the ceiling! The black nether brick represent instrument cases and the wooden trap doors carton-boxes are simple sound insulation.
Workshop with materials for carpentry, upcycling and electronics
Kitchen with seeds for planting and populating the terrace.
Office and art studio. Tatami mats for workout/meditation (near). The apartment entrance is visible in the background
Bedroom with small library and wardrobes. The iron railings is supposed to represent the foldable hanger I use to dry clothes on, and the iron pressure plate the vacuum robot =)
Terrace with plants, rainwater collection and 3-stage composting. You can see into the bedroom (left) and the workout/meditation area (right). Solar panels represented by light sensors are not yet in place.
Hey, I love this idea of jumping into the unknown!
I especially feel inclined to build 2) (can't get enough of tree houses!) 3) (nor ships!), 6) and 8) (whole building or just apartment...) !
I recently did 5) and 7) (except the non-serene part!)
Don't know if I have the stomach for 10)... or, actually, I could rebuild my cramped family's scorching hot car going on a too long road trip in summer in the 90's...I think it is close enough =D
some optional additions:
a gigantic previously unknown creature! (it can be something known, but the size-change will make it unexpected and unknown enough)
