Thought I'd find something if I wandered into the Forrbiden Forrest! Great job!

That's awesome, now you should do Minas Tirith from LOTR

Not a huge Harry Potter fan myself but this build is big and looks the job, nice one. :)

WooHoo, thanks for putting this as a digital diamond, this has been months of work. If anyone has any questions you can PM me.

Also, everyone asking why it's not PotatoOrgy, it's because his Hogwarts is extremely incorrect in a lot of both outside and inside architecture

There are indeed, missing bits.

It also looks a little dull...

"exacting attention to detail". I've seen the movies many times, and despite the castle's architecture magically changing every movie, I honestly could not tell it was Hogwarts from the first and second time I watched the video. It's more like a really big castle that stole certain aspects of Hogwarts.

Quidditch pitch is pretty nice though.

Also, the download seriously needs to be cleaned up a little. There's no point in having a texture pack folder if there is only 1 file in it.

u can't build hogwarts. the architecture changes every movie, so really ur just building a random place that u call a magical school.



Posted 12 August 2011 - 07:30 PM

Amazing job on the details on that castle. I had great time exploring the architecture before blowing it up with my tnt. <3



Posted 12 August 2011 - 07:31 PM

you should make a series of movies based on harry potter in here that would be so cool
