Hi, I'm looking for some people to join me on my project. It's difficult to find decent help on the minecraft l4g posts, so I thought I would try filtering randoms through here.
You don't have to be an experienced builder to join, you just need to be able to convey an idea to me and we can work on it together. It's always good to learn from each other, so please be willing.
I'm not super strict about where or what you build, as long as it fits the theme.
Don't be discouraged if you see me work on an idea for a day and scrap it the next. Not all ideas will be in the final result.
Now onto the project.
I'm currently working on the courtyard. It's difficult to see, but the center is kind of at a slope. In the center is going to be a steep drop so that water can fall into a garden. So, if you can imagine or google a tostito scoop, you can get the shape I'm going for.
I'd like some help with filling the outside edges (top section) with hedges and trees. I've left a section of the north open for a spot where we can design a greenhouse. On the opposite end, I've terraformed some mountains so that the southern section can be built into an overlook to gaze at some waterfalls on the side of a mountain.
(I'm facing east in this screenshot.)
Now onto the idea for the main water/ice palace.
I wanted to design it so that it would look like it was being gradually iced over. The further east you go, the further the ice would take over. I chose this spot so that the grass in the courtyard looked like it was dying as you go back.
The thing in the center of the top screenshot is an idea for the theme of the palace. It needs a lot of work.
This was an idea for the main lobby of the palace. I'm going to transfer the snowflake over whenever I get to building the lobby, but the arch's aren't going to be coming along.
To sum it up, I'm looking for help designing a theme for the main building and help filling in the courtyard. You don't need to be super dedicated 40 hours a week builder, as long as you contribute every now and then.
Well, after I think a 5-6 month break from minecraft, I'm going to revive this thread. I still haven't lost interest in this project, and I don't know exactly how it'll turn out in the end, but I'll keep working on it even if it's 15 minutes a week. I'm hoping that someone would like to join me, though. Plenty of people coming in to look at the progress, but noone actually wants to build together. That's unfortunate for me, but if it gives someone inspiration to do their own thing, then at least this thread wasn't for nothing, yeah?
