Can you have the nether portal before the diamond age?
That's open to interpretation. I think the construction list for each age is meant to be progressive, so in my opinion the spirit of the challenge is to not build a structure until you reach the age it is listed in. Otherwise you could have built a portal in the iron age.
Finished the stone age, and having to use only wooden tools during the wood age really makes you appreciate stone tools. Also, i'm new here, is there a way to use photos besides uploading them, because using that method I can only use 5?.
Anyways, Here is my stone age castle:
Here is an aerial view of the castle, including the keep, the courtyard(area with the birch trees, it also has flowers and benches), and my sheepies:
Here is a close up view of the keep, with the guard tower as well:
So I would like to post an update on my progress for the iron age. Also, I found a resource pack and shader I like, so the photos should be prettier.
So first off, I chose my castle colors. I chose the Cascadia flag. I also need to come up with a cool name for this castle, like Cascadenburg or something(burg being a german suffix meaning castle), so suggestions please!
I think videos are fine as long as you cover all the requirements.
on a completely unrelated note I just finished a huge part of my base, or, more like a fortress. Now that I have excavated the land and built a blueprint of the wall in dirt I just need to make my keep and wall, a wheat farm, and an animal pen and I will be finished the wood age.
in this image you can barely see my cat on the left, my spawn is the weird tower in the middle, the hole in the wall will be the gate, below the gate are dirt outcrops, the bottom one shows what level the dock will be on and the top one shows where I will make the ground level outside the main gates, this will also be where a bridge will connect the spawn to the wall and a suspended walkway attached to the wall, the part inside the walls is 1 block below sea level. Both sides of the wall end outside the picture where massive turrets will be placed. This was all made using wood tools (it took forever).
i added a temporary tree and wheat farm. Wrapped the wall in birch planks which will become a walkway once I expand it. I added a nice gazebo to spawn in with a bridge to connect it to the wall. At the end of the wall is a dirt outline of one turret, There is another on the other side of the wall.
