got to say that the best way to learn to build well is to build... not read a 10 page post about how to build. also, in this case, i would really have liked to see pictures instead of an essay. i really cant say if you build well or not. you know ill take an extra step over 95% of other people and click on your profile. from the one picture there it looks good, not great, but its hard to tell because you douse the picture with shaders that make a dirt hut look decent.
as for this section of this post:
Steampunk American Craftsman Rustic Fantasy Industrial (WWI-WWII era) Modern (Learning the principles of shape, weight, color balance, and such are good. I added these to my style.) Orcish Elven Nordic
im not really a fan of grouping things together as styles but i can get general categories like medievil and modern. that said, i cant tell what most of these are even. i cant imagine how industrial and modern differ on and what fantasy and elven differ on. i guess industrial is between ww1 and ww2... i can picture what architecture looks like during both of the wars, but not in between. the wars seem more interesting than the time in between, but im not well studied. i guess the nords get a building style but no one else does.. hm. idk, i know you tried a lot on this, i just dont get what youre after i guess.
Seems like a lot? It is. You should go out of your way to use as many blocks as possible in your builds. It makes it more interesting to look at and a lot more fun to build.
also, that part is just wrong. the idea is to get as much complexity as possible out of as few blocks as it takes. that doesnt mean only use one block, but using every block in the game looks worse than using just one block.
overall, i think this process is way too specific and assumes that everyone learns the same way. its like in school when they tell you to take notes and grade them when you never need to actually take notes to learn the material because you can look up anything you dont know online and memorize the rest. its a mold maybe a few people will like that is completely useless to everyone else. my advice is figure out what you want to do and do it differently than others. thats the only way to ever reach a maximum level of efficiency.
giving pictures of your builds and telling how you made them is useful because people can combine previous knowledge with what they see. this is just a waste of time because it assumes everyone who reads it is stupid in a way.
