I died while digging for rare minerals and found lava instead. I got so pissed off I started anew. I wanted to try a different project, and I did a fairly sizeable tower. I borrowed some inspiration from PS4... ah, hell, see for yourselves!

Look at this awesome glass walkway to one part of my stronghold

That makes me think about Column. It must be all the cubes. Smile

The glass walkways are something I always liked. Zio's Castle in PS4 had those stone walkways in the air to reach other parts of the castle, and I just liked that design. I wanted to do a gigantic tower of doom, but then the idea about walkways and other parts popped to my mind, and there it is. There is the greenhouse, the hideout with the Metal door (which will soon hold an underground complex as well), and one unused tower. The glass pinnacle of the tower is for the incredible view. I have a LOT of unused Glass cubes, and I think I'm going to create myself another, even more higher vantage point.

I also got sick of all those dumb F'N animals being constantly around my base, so I busted a gasket and built a shelter for those idiots.

I'm not sure what do to next other than the underground complex. Then again, my pyramid of DOOM was not originally planned.

It's definitely the cubes. Pyramids are cool.

very nice!! i just love glass!! remember animals will only spawn on grass( from what i have seen ) if you have none they tend not to spawn. in my farm i have stone anyplace there is no water or plants. so they cant spawn there. i need to finish my town. if you ever want to see it lat me know. remember you "own" the farm in my town lolz.

Thanks, Jez. It's going to be an... interesting farm. Somehow, I expect the weather to be foggy nearly in permanance.

Here are some screens from my PYRAMID OF DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

This side still in construction. Especially the lava moat. I double D DARE you to try and hang around my base now, you dumb animals!

Spoiler:
 

Yup - a F'N river of LAVA running through my base. Guess which Ministry song was playing while I was setting up this hardcore version of a river? Lava. Kickass song. Thanks for the inspiration.

Spoiler:
 

Glass SHOULD NOT withstand LAVA, but this is Minecraft. And it looks F'N awesome/

Spoiler:
 

The river was unmercifully drained, and bucket after bucket of lava were meticulously dropped one by one to create the source of the orange river.

Spoiler:
 

What's better than having a base surround by a moat of LAVA? Another moat of course! This time, a regular, boring river.

I do have lots of unused Glass, so I might enhance the glass roof. I also completed the river moat, it's about halfway-full but that's the whole point of it, -- fall down in it, and you're screwed. There are currently like 24 animals stuck in it. Hilarious. I also stumbled upon some pumpkins, they're hilarious. Time to dig deep to find more gold, redstone, diamonds ans all that good stuff.

I'm using a sweet Bioshock texture pack, and I want you guys and gals to feast your eyes on my creation. It is a tower constructed out of Obsidian and Bloodstone, and I am currently digging and building an Obsidian moat to host a river around the base, with soul sand at the bottom! The deathpit for animals!

So much more planned. Here is a quick look.

I am, grandma, I invoked the combined powers of caffeine and fog and I am currently 1/2 done with the outer walls, as obviously, I want this building to have walls. Again, one layer of obsidian sandwiched between two layers of Bloodstone. I will do an alternance of Lava and regular rivers, two of the corners will be refaced with obsidian, and a guiding path to the obsidian receiving pool. I avoided lava because Bloodstone is EXTREMELY flammable, but I'm going nuts not seeing lava anywhere. Perhaps I also am going to redo the top waterfalls.

Well, I played until 5 this morning and pretty much completed the building itself. I've had to change something I built waaay early in the build, and it was a considerable waste of time, LOTS of Obsidian to dig through.

The moat is also complete, filled with soulsand and several, waterfalls. Yeah, perhaps I went a little overboard with the waterfalls, but this F'N moat had to be filled.

I've got some finishing work to do on the building itself, but I will begin work on the hugeass lake around the base tonight.

I have several screenshots ready to be uploaded once I get back from work.

did you know if you put blocks one block below where you want the water level then put the water on top... if you remove the blocks it will fill it all in? you will not get any flow you might want but it will fill it all XD. i learned that not too long ago when i tried to fill a squid tank.

Yup, I built several waterfalls around my base to help fill up the moat, at first I wanted to get the blocks back, and did so, but water flowing on glass looks fine, so I put some glass instead.

I have decided to start phase III. I will dig an articifial lake within a large radius of my base, and fill it up with lava. There are two lava rivers currently and I think I will start two or maybe four new rivers on the huge frame that was supposed to be a portal, until I nixed the idea.

Then I will add glass all the way to the top, with the 2 or 4 lava rivers having a place to escape to the bottom, of course.

Then this masterpiece will be complete. This is the first time I take a project so far. I stubbornly want this one brought to completion, and I will do so.

In the meanwhile, here are a couple of screenshots of the 2/3 finished Bloodscraper. I now use a Metroid texture pack. Metroid is F'N awesome, Minecraft is F'N awesome, blend the two together and get a Metroid-looking Minecraft? Pardon my fucking french, but FUCK YEAH!

View on a waterfall encased in glass



Nasty moat filled with Soul sand. Those stupid animals drown easier now.



The top. The lava falls are not complete, I just haven't been much in the Nether, not enough to find a suitable supply of lava.



View from Nihil -- OK, bird's eye view



Lower level view. Yeah, there are lots of waterfalls, deal with it, I like waterfalls.

The base as you see it is in Phase 2. I am beginning Phase 3 right about... now.

Phase 3 is underway, one of the two stairways that are to guide a lava river are done, now I just need glass, glass and more glass to finish the top. I haven't finished one side yet and I've used about ~500 blocks of glass.

The artificial lake is under construction as well, this is a tall order but I am almost halfway done. I am looking forward to the end result.

Actually, I prefer working with Netherrack or Obsidian. Bloodstone looks sweet, Obsidian is near-indestructible, plus it looks wicked. Oh yeah... I use a texture pack called "Apocalypse", and the Netherrack is blue. If Nether is "hell", and it has blue stone in it... Blue Hell?

Alright, so I caved in yesterday and completed one of the four stairs I was building. I laid protective glass on the side, and started the lava river on top. Instead of keeping it a small narrow river, I nixed the glass a about 2/3 of the stairwell, and the end result just dropped my jaw to the floor, it looks like a lava curtain, downright awesomeness.

Behold! This has gotten me supercharged and you know what? I am going to do FOUR of those lava falls. They are just too awesome not to build, and it adds a certain touch to a creation, without false modesty, which is awesome. And look at the waterfalls right behind -- contradiction. Fire and Water, opposite elements.

I am a freaking genius.





I am a failed Architect, does it show? Well, Minecraft slapped that fact hard in my face, which was quite thought stirring. I will pick off where I left off. I found my calling, and it's much better than any kind of future I'd get within my current company.

...but I'm getting off-track. Phase 3 will be continued tonight, and I can feel there is a Phase 4 brewing in my head.
