This is the area I'm working with. All of the snowy area on the left and all of non-tree area in the middle of the map. The Artizian Plains, will be somewhat of an up-scale medieval-esque/fantasy build (hopefully) featuring a lot of intricate detailing. I'm going to be learning a lot during this build and pushing the limits of what's possible with stairs and slabs. The entirety of this build will be legit. Clearing the land took me axes 5-7 diamond axes (with enchants) and netted me about 5 double chests of wood (oak/birch).
The beginning of the outer wall's towers. Status: Finished
Building the actual outer wall. Status: Finished
The outside wall was started on Oct. 9th and finished on the 24th. They carry the design from the towers quiet heavily. I've also done some minor terra-forming although it's pretty hard to notice in the screenshots. I will need to do quiet a bit later on too.
The Gateways. Status: Finished
These pictures have been updated to reflect their finished state.
Terra-Forming/Other Status: In progress
I'll be touching up areas when I get to building more later on, for now I want to smooth out the terrain and make a more manage-able landscape for when I get around to building the castle. If things look a little bland at the moment just remember there are no trees and this will not be accurate of the final product.
Castle/Palace Status: Building underway. - Planning underway.
I've decided upon the size of the castle - 140x100 blocks. There will also be a library, storage, and frankly I don't what else wing that will extend out from the side of the castle. I would like a rather large and elaborate library though, so something along the size of 60x60
Planning - I use creative for this.
Towns/Villages Status: Not started yet
Anyway that's what I've got thus far. If you have any questions feel free to ask them and I will answer them as best I can.
Feedback is welcome and appreciated For those wondering this will cover a roughly 200-300 x 300 block area. I had actually intended for this to be even larger but due to sheer cliffs caused by 1.0 terrain generation on what started as a beta 1.8 world this isn't possible unless I want to look directly at said sheer cliffs which I already am in a small section. My Biomes are also messed up because of the various terrain generation changes that have happened since Beta 1.8. Hence why in the picture of the map the ocean is all ice. It think it's a snow plains biome lol.
