over the next week or so i plan on making this huge Dough Nut shaped building.
I must thank MrTorus (forum user) for helping me with the plans with out his help i would still be slaving over paint.net playing with pixels.
so here comes the plan.
the building will be placed over the ocean so that illuminate any need for flattening out the land it will fit and should sit between 10 to 15 blocks above sea level at its lowest point.
Onto the pics Please keep in mind these images are made to be viewed in paint.net at like 2000% zoom with the pixel grid turned on.
Ok so here is a top view of the frame work for the beast.
and a side view.
for the rest of the building there are 45 slices 1 for each elivation because i am 2 lazy to save each and every file and upload them all i made the images into a .gif i plays fast so you can't get a grate deal of info from it but you can see what i am doing kinda.
and last but not least is a 3d render provided by MrTorus
Some other facts.
Blocks needed 39640
thats 11.5 large chests full of stacks of 64. Gasp.
What i am undecided on is what to make it out of.
I considered smooth stone But its shadows are very sharp and dose not blur 2 well and make a nice rounded looking shape. dirt cobble or planks are the 3 main choices because they can be easy to get in large ammounts. so what do you guys think?
I want to do planks because i think its a bit of a dough color and i could maybe make it look like it has icing and sprinkles on top :tongue.gif: Yum.
OFC i will be building this on my smp server and no cheats will be used this includes /item /give or any form of cuboid.
Aha, so THAT'S what you were asking about on the Paint.NET forums. This looks very interesting, I can't wait to see it finished. I'd recommend using planks too, as you only have to harvest a quarter as many blocks of tree trunk to get however many you need. If you do add sprinkles, what blocks will you use for that?
yer i don't know why but spawn seems to dc people it could be some unknown bug with fence spam im not sure ... i may try moving it for a day or 2 and see if that fixes it the rest of us just ran a mile away from the darn thing srsly spawn is a ghosts town for noobs.
i dont think im crazy i have it well planned out and im about to install fraps so i can take screen shots and vid as much as i can to document this monster project as much as possible and thanks for that pic :smile.gif: i was sick of editing images after doing all 45 for the design
best thing is i will have a whole team of friends to help out from time to time :smile.gif: i pay in diamonds :tongue.gif:
aslo i was thinking for the sprinkles i could use blocks like cloth (would have to cheat :sad.gif: ) or even cobble and stone some leaves maybe idk what ever i can get my hands on.
also with using the planks a friend of mine has worked out how to make super trees like 99% of the time when you plant them that means a whole lot more wood in a small space pain in the backside to cut down but.. some ladder and a diamond axe + some runecraft leafblower = easy job.
you should make it out of obsidian, a nice black doughnut, and then cover it in lava. (it's easier then it sounds.
you make the obsidian where it goes, with dirt molds, rather then mining it then placing it.)
in all seriousness, cobble is probably your best bet, though glass would be the coolest imo.
MEh maybe Or i just know what team work can do. We built a small city in 2 days 90% of it was smooth stone i think we can handle a few 1000 trees.
like i said if every tree is a super tree (it can be done) it will not take much probably spend a good amount of time flattening the ground to grow trees on nothing worse than leaves touching the ground and on flat ground it don't happen so its worth the time upfront.
OK guy's here is todays update On progress :smile.gif:
Click it ^^^^^
And heres some info.
1. day started out by fining a place to plant loads of trees the ground needed to be flat.
2. a good spot was found and flattening begun.
3. planting of trees
4. server screwed up and undid half the flattening and a a lot of planting we were mad.
5. ground was made flat once more and replanted.
6. we made a work shop and loads of chests while waiting for trees to grow
7. we harvested all the trees
8. we started the first piece of the torus ( center most inner ring)
9. Watched tv had a bit of a break while waiting for trees.
10 harvested all the trees again.
11. replanted and made .gif
yep so day 2 has been and Nealy gone.
So here is todays pics.
1.harvested some more trees and extended the plantation.
2. started to build the largest part of the frame,
3. raged at the frame when it failed and was wrong.
4. abandoned the frame and started the lowest layer.
5. finished lowest layer
6. finished the first half of the second layer
7. called it a day and heading to play tf2. :smile.gif:
Fact we have collected all the wood we will need to finish it all and some more to cover mistakes trust me we make a lot. the second layer has been a real headache.
You got to remember its not just me working on it.
Usually there is:
ice_dragon_god (he don't do a whole lot of building but he helps with getting the wood)
Hulk (helps with a lot of the building and loves to bad me when i screw up)
Myself doing a lot of building and over seeing the whole thing.
There are some others that help out but yea.
We are in the vent server (in my sig) all day talking this saves a lot of time typing and more time working
ok so its late night of the 4th day and im here to say sorry for no update on day 3 and to give an update on day 4
ok so there was no update on day 3 because we pretty much did nothing due to my serverhost being dumb and not being able to to turn my server back on so i could control it.. herp derp he is dumb.
ok so here is day 4's images enjoy the speed of this 1 i tried hard to make it cool :tongue.gif:
we decided to attack the inner ring today cause its well hard because of the side we have to stand on when we are making it (outside normally stand on the inside).
so yea thats all we did we did not need to collect wood at all and wont do for quite some time (3 chests of logs)
thx not bad for 9 pics and 4 min in photo shop its a peice of cake to make them the 1's with the fading between them takes a bit more cause there are 80 + slides on some of them 5 fades for each pic and 14 pic's and imgur said it was 2 big :ohmy.gif:
yes day 5's update is here sadly 2 day was well a little unproductive we continued to wark till we reached the center with the inner rings and then spent the rest of the day goofing around with mobs and tnt (we partied :tongue.gif:)
