    I'm downloading this only because of the snowstorm. o_O I'll let you know how I like the rest of the pack once I look at it. XD

    Awsome!


    Thanks!

    Unrelated to that, I find it wildly entertaining that every time I think this thread has fizzled out, someone randomly pops in and comments, bringing it back to life. Thanks for all the support, guys!

    Try to get some more diverse pics up... I like how this is looking, but I want to see more of it before I download. ^_^

    Hay guys
    Finished stage one of the human city i was building last night. I was going to post a few pictures up (though there is not much to show) but I'm having some difficulty. I'll get them up if i can.

    I'm going to stage stage two, though i may change the style in houses a bit. Seeing how these are supposed to be farm houses and I've been making typical city houses they look a bit off.

    P.S. Noddy question here, but how do i get pictures inside spoiler boxes? Just so i don't clog up the forum is why i want to know.


     [spoiler] this will show up...[/spoiler] 


    ...like this. ^_^

    I look forward to seeing your pics! I'm siting my castle right now... Gotta plan out where the entire city is going to be first. XD And of course, I'm using bricks for the noble's houses, so I'll be hunting clay for the next few weeks. XP

    I've finished the iron age... it's pretty cool, but for some reason, imgur is giving me crap. Suggestions for other places to host this stuff?


    Imgur gives me problems from time to time, but it's what I use mainly... Photobucket has bandwidth limits, and a forum eats that limit up really quick... You could try Imageshack or tinypic? I've never really used either of those, so I can't really recommend them. :/ Looking forward to seeing the pics, though!

    Quote from Brinjal66

    I am not sure about this idea...
    /me thinks for a while.
    You got yourself a supporter!


    Many thanks! The more I play, the more I realize how useful this would be!

    Quote from BiggJohnn

    Good idea but make sure the forest doesn't take over a plains area.


    That's why we have the 'only self-plant if no other saplings in the area' rule. =)

    I really really like that golem, I would just prefer the orange parts be more brass colored and less orange. Other than that, it's fantastic. The forestry stuff looks great too. :)


    I agree, it just looks better brass.

    I agree, it was always the rivets that did me in. I'm currently working on another golem right now, trying to get it to look right but so far no dice - on the othe hand, I will listen to you and do away with all the rivets, and keep it headless.

    Still, this is Steelfeathers' flagship texture pack after all and we ought to wait what she says...


    Definitely her call, I was just throwing my two cents in. ^_^ And I wouldn't get rid of ALL of the rivets, just most of them. :P

    Eh... I made a 32x32 one first (like I said, Steelfeathers was my inspiration and her Enchanted pack is 32x32) but I just found it too limiting. I don't think I'm going to convert Wolfhound to a small resolution either, as it loses way too much when I shrink it. Sorry. There's a ton of amazing 32x32 packs out there though, it seems to be a popular resolution, so you should be able to find a really nice one fairly easily.


    Honestly, I like 16x packs myself (feathersong = the bomb), but I make a few exceptions for the odd 32x pack. ^_^ If you ever get around to making a 16x or 32x pack you're proud of, let me know about it! I really like your style. Reminds me of Steel's work. [/shameless sucking up]

    I think I've found a more horrible task than leveling mountains...filling in holes/lakes and replacing sand with dirt.

    I'll take leveling mountains any day. :P
    Quote from Cobalt_Valkyrie

    Ah, well I think it's pretty. Now that I think about it though, I think I meant texture pack, not skin.

    So, um... I've never really built much with wood. I just had what we can call a "learning experience" with regards to fire.

    Good thing that part of the wall was reinforced with stone, and the blacksmith's shop, well, I guess it can be rebuilt ;)

    Fire bad! XD
    Quote from Thistle

    Oh! Yeah, the texture pack is mine as well, called Wolfhound. If you like it, you should also check out the one the creator of this challenge made... I think she's got a couple now. They were my inspiration for making my own.

    Woah, you made that? Gonna go look now. :P And yeah, Steelfeathers has several texture packs out, and currently owns my 'default texture' title. ::EDIT:: Oh no, it's 64x. My computer crashes and burns with anything over 32. Have you ever thought about making a lower-resolution pack? :P
    Quote from Cobalt_Valkyrie

    I'll have to do that. I've been resisting getting any texture packs because my boyfriend and I play on a home server with no textures on it, and I'm afraid if I get anything to use for just my single player games, I'll think our world is boring. There are so many neat ones though, I'm going to have to try some out.

    While it's true, using texture packs really lets you see the dullness in the default look, there's nothing wrong with playing on a server with textures... :P

    (Third time's the charm)

    I decided to add some brass sheathing, and this was the result:

    <kersnip>

    One of the things which did not impress me greatly was that it had too many exposed parts. Also, the use of yellow gave it too much of a modern feel which was at odds with the texture pack as a whole, so this time I will be trying again.
    Bear in mind that this guy is still a WIP, and that I will be giving him a head soon, along with a more art nouveau makeover, so he will be all curves, bosses and filligree, and with fewer rivets.

    I for one really like how it looks like that... maybe a few less rivets. I like the headless golem look, though, and the brass trim makes me think 'Victorian' without screaming 'steampunk'.

    Nice build, how'd you get you farm irrigated so early on? Did you fill in a pond, or did you find a bucket somewhere? I like how you put your greenhouse a fair ways away from your keep. ^_^

    No, no. Second...at least second to report. Dezibahn was first.

    I've finished the wooden age!

    It's not really pretty, but it embraces the basics. I'm sure everyone says this, but I have much bigger plans for building it up in the other ages. I'm going to move the animals, and connect the buildings, and... so on.

    I'm pretty new to the game so please feel free to give comments/suggestions :)

    Looks very good! The 'build my wall by growing it' idea seems to be pretty popular... or should I say, 'poplar'? XD Really, though, I like your style of building a lot, it's very... Can't think of how to describe it, but I really like where you're going with it. Definitely looking forward to your next set of pics.

    Quote from plos543

    Looks fun i might try i tomorrow
    but im not a very good builder
    :SSSS: :SSSS: :SSSS: :SSSS: always blows up my actual good buildings


    Good luck! Keep on Creeper Patrol, by the end of it they won't be able to spawn anywhere near you!

    I've completed the Diamond Age:

    There's more than that. I've got a world download up. Sorry if there's something wrong about adf.ly links. I'd explain if I could.


    Wow, your stuff looks better than mine. :P I like what you've done! I'll download and poke around when I have a moment. Congratulations on finishing the challenge! We should make a badge.
