Yay, grass paths! We were on hiatus for a long while.
The Advent of 1.9... *cue angelic choir*
With the advent of 1.9 bringing new Grass Paths to the table, we became really inspired to work long and hard on the tower. We began with the necessities, yes, those bare necessities. Ones which add variation and theme to this building. The tower looked rather bland before we made some modifications to the main tower, the walls, and structure surrounding the main tower. The ajah towers are in need of a few changes, we still have one grassy area that needs sprucing up, and the interior is coming slowly. But all in all, we have this growing feeling that we've almost finished this bit. It's rather exciting!
Everything past this point is quickfire so here goes!
- We've got a new signature, one that actually looks cool.
- After "reeeally" looking hard at the map, we figured we built the whole thing wrong anyways. Oh, well! *CL
- The tower has 2002 beds in the main Tower alone.
- Of those rooms, there are enough chests to cause entity lag.
- There are 4 secrets and 2 secret passageways.
- We have hand-placed over 700,000 blocks. My hands hurt.
- Q: Does anyone know good methods of windows for stone buildings or examples we could see?
Want to help?
Whew.. So who wants to help out? We've concluded that one way to circumvent griefers is to have those with an eye for what we're building to submit builds! That's right, you heard me!
I thought you guys didn't want help?
The team is smaller at this point in time. Just me and Gouda_Boy. And frankly, we really wanted to have people contribute, just those darned griefers messed up a lot of our early works, (and we're ultra-pissed off for eternity about that), but we feel that by doing these submission based contributions, you can assist without us panicking.
What do you need?
You can be credited and included in the world of the Lord Dragon by making houses, ships, monuments, interesting locations, travel stops, villages, and other things that you think would be nice to include. If you're interested, we can give you the guidelines we will be looking for. We're going to start small with these submissions, so don't build anything enormous or complicated. You'll probably also want OzoCraft resource pack to build with. We are under the impression it will be updated, but if by June nothing happens, we'll modify it ourselves. Shouldn't be too hard. Just a png file right? ... right?
