This is great. I'm very into survival, almost doing the same types of things you do, only difference is I make a nice castle first, then go crazy with massive farms, breeding pens, and mining operations. Then we have huge storage facilities under our castle, just load them all up and prepare to build big. I love this, looking forward to your new thread, if you happen to want any help in flattening some land let me know, I know it can take a long time, but I'm very patient that way, we have a tree farm about 20 blocks under our castle and it is 120x150 and it is 20 blocks high, so I know what rock mining is all about, lol.
I am very interested in seeing what this turns out like. Goodluck! It's nice seeing someone doing something legit without mods or creative mode for a change. Props to you for having the patience for all of that.
Oh man, So excited! I can't wait to see how you work. Sadly, I downloaded a Dynamic Height mod for my world and my Biltmore build (I need at least a 300 block sky limit..) and.. the lag is insane. *Cry*
I commend you for having the patience to do this legit! It will turn out amazing, just don't give up! I saw this yesterday and was blown away by the complexity of a legit build... Good luck :smile.gif: +1!
I have, indeed, restarted.
The new project is well under way.
I simply could not find a suitable piece of land on the last world, so I spent most of Christmas Eve generating new worlds until I got a usable one. The first step is to clear about about 2500 trees... and that is taking a lot of time. Once I have a clear piece of land, I will start on layout and foundations. I am not going to start the new thread until the opening post can at least show some part of the structure even if it is just the surveyors marks and flags (torches). I expect to have the trees cleared by new Years eve... hopefully a new thread by end of day Jan 2.
The new plans call for these dimensions... exactly 308long X 128Wide X 155High.... lol its freeking HUGE!
They are flying with unlimited inventory and no mobs at night to build a hollow shell that is half turned sideways?
That has been done, yes.
For God's sake, I'll spend more time just farming sheep for the white wool, than they did on the entire project.
I count theirs at 38 blocks wide... Mathematically that makes it just slightly larger than 1/6 the scale of my build...
Show me a legit build approaching 88 X 262, and I'll bow out.
wether you build it legit or not, it looks the same in the end, usualy better if you cheat. So no i am not impressed by your hours of farming wool, i dont care if you have a 30x30 chunk strip mine to build your whatever, i care about how it looks.
Swervish, So happy you updated! :biggrin.gif: I check this thread every day. I am so excited for this and can not wait to see your progress on it. I myself did some research into Fishtaco's height mod and am now building a copy of Biltmore Estate on a full scale. All legit because of you. And I'm soooooo totally regretting it, lol.
Please keep us up to date on the new world and the building, even if it's just clearing land!
One of the biggest waste of time in life after reality tv is grinding stuff in computer games. Especially in Minecraft, where the grind servers only as a menial timesink.
You can get actually somethign done with creative mode & worldedit, so I highly recommend them for anyone wanting to build stuff in Minecraft.
"Yeah, well, you know, uh, that's just like, your opinion, man"
Minecraft is a sandbox game; you can play it like YOU want to play it.
Do you want to build, use mods, and creative mode? Then do it!
Do you want to mine and earn every block you use? Then do it!
Do you want to play challenges, adventure mapso, or have a mission to accomplish like Vechs' maps? Then do it!
Do you want to build adventure maps and see other people play them? Then do it!
Do you like to program mods? Then do it!
Do you like to design your own texture maps? Then do it!
