There's a lot of things to add to a castle.
  • Armory
  • Cannons
  • Throne Room
  • Dungeon
  • Torture Room
  • Etc.

You might wanna look at a real castle before you make more.  Just saying.
...Of course, if we do get a Game Over, i'll just cut the screen open with my Optic Blade before breaking the fourth wall enough times that it breaks the system, rebooting it to the last saved copy (the previous turn/round/whatever).

Well, I am planing on making a lot of things in it. I am going to have one to two story droms in it. so far I have made three so far.

What I am going to include this castle.

*Dorms: Hopefully A LOT of them.

*5 massive dinning rooms.

*A garden area

*A Ballroom or two

*Fast food restrants

*Anything else I can think of.

*Some towers and defenses


I am going to try and make it look good as well, I will update with pictures as I move more along with this. Even in creative this is going to take a little time.

a castle dont need to be perfectly symmetric neither squared shape based.

Spoiler:

also dont need to have a a width neither a heigh limit Posted Image

the bigger you make it, the more rooms, and more detailed rooms, you can place inside.

also, if you make something that big, a repeated shape all around would make it boring also, perfectly symmetric also means that if you walk through one side of it, you already know exactly what to find at the other side as it is perfectly symmetric.

still, as you can see in this image, I used symmetric patterns over an asymmetric overall
Spoiler:

sure, this castle have nothing to do with any real castle but for its facilities and the fact it is a reinforced structure meant to least heavy attacks and to support life and battle for days/weeks, also it can provide food and mining resources.

a mine and some plantation is also a good idea for a castle, still, you need to make room for it, be it outside the castle facilities but inside castle walls or inside the castle with a lot of light and water or open area with water (anyway, water and light is needed for plantation, not for animals)

I must say, this is a very beautiful castle you made! A lot of work and effort put into it. I don't plan on making mine perfectly squared, in fact when I was working on the dorms I figured it isn't going to be perfectly symmetric but I want it to be really good looking.

There are two things I LOVE to build: Castles, and Spaceships; both I put a lot of time and effort into. I built a castle one for my sibling but it was more or less medium sized and it wasn't really complete. I rather work without a world edit so it gives me more time to think about it and put more detail and love into it. Amnesia: The Dark Decent had a really impressive castle (Quiet massive one at that)

When I am done making this castle I want it to be avaible for download, that is why I am trying to get imput so it would be worth peoples time to download it.

thnks :)

I also plan to set all my builds (castle, kingdom around the castle - being built - the other kingdoms - well, you can consider it is still being built too but my focus is on this kingdom) will be avaiable for playing at a server I plan to start.

fortunately I got a job but it is not an everyday job now so, till I get enough to keep a server (till I get to have money I know I will have every month regardless of my expenses) I will set it to a minecraft server and open for anyone that want to play and build there (sure, will learn how to protect builds and set game modes and gamemode rules before I start the server so I dont get my build screwed also people that build there dont have their builds screwed too)

It all really depends on the style of castle. it looks like your going for a medieval look on the walls and exterior, and a bit 18th century France/ modern america(make it a taco bell!). for the ballrooms I would recommend a golden/ cream color scheme, with lots of lights and glass.it would contrast nicely with the stone and have that fancy party feel.

Thats Hospitaller and Ironwillneo for the tips!

Also if you need any help Ironwillneo just let me know. :) I am putting up some updates on my castle so far.

Spoiler:

In the middle I am making the ball room with the diamond and iron flooring, the dorms are on the bottom of the picture. Still a lot to be done here. What do ya guys think so far?

I was just thinking now . . . a castle look better with a natural environment around.

I think you should either take what you already built to a normal map and keep building form there (a bit of work but not hard to do with mcedit) or to start a castle at a not-superflat map
