this is what I have now, but if you look at the ball, you see that from the top to the bottom the horizontal circles are good, but the vertical (from left to right) is not a corcel.. if you know what I mean.. If you look at the top, you see a circle, but if you look at the right side of this ball you see that there are no circles. I hope you all understand. This is the problem I have right now :S
I know it's a case of 'each to their own' but given that i get a couple of hours on minecraft per night around my other commitments I personally don't see the point in spending an hour building a sphere block by block when I can do it in less than 5 seconds with a worldedit command
Guess it all depends on what parts of Minecraft you find to be "fun".
Myself, I think that gathering my materials and spending the time to carefully build something to be a lot of fun - especially with the looming threat of the Mobs coming around.
All of those commands seem like cheats to me, and I don't get why people play a game like this (a game with a heavy focus on building) if they don't actually like the building aspect.
