I just got back from a tour of the pyramid, and I've gotta say most of the pictures you took are not very good.
You don't really need 10 shots staring down a hallway or in a doorway.

That said some of the hallways you made are bland and could use a bit more detail, there are some really smart things in this. Also the whole Exterior of the pyramid is Boring, I've seen tons of Minecraft pyramids and this one looks the same as all the others from the outside.
Another note is that all of the Pillars made out of materials really cluttered up the rooms and made them difficult to navigate.

That was awesome. However, Blinx did not make that and its his builder app, not yours. So....

It is obvious that you spent alot of time on it and it is better than some of the other Apps that have been Accepted.
However I'd still vote no on it, but you probably don't need to worry about getting rejected.

I would agree in the first post but in the second and third I think it looks fine. This is how to CORRECTLY do a pyramid.

Its not very "creative" to do a pyramid but this is the most creative one I've seen posted as builder.

(Minecraft used to make them for you See Here.)

Those are all different hallways.

That said some of the hallways you made are bland and could use a bit more detail,
I would agree but less about the hall way and more about the floor, you could add maybe a trap door that falls (its just like making a door using pistons), use a little different type of cobble (though since I'm assuming this was made before 1.9 so I'm willing to overlook that)

there are some really smart things in this. Also the whole Exterior of the pyramid is Boring, I've seen tons of Minecraft pyramids and this one looks the same as all the others from the outside.
This is just inherrent. You've seen a pyramid before so of course its boring, look for technical aspects on builder application creations. If you're going to critique a builder application provide reasons and room for improvement. Don't abuse the privilege of posting on Builder Applications.

That was awesome. However, Blinx did not make that and its his builder app, not yours. So....
So? If someone has a video of my structure and it makes it look better, I would want them to post it.

I do like this one. Little things, like changing ceiling height or pathway height in key places make all the difference. The variety in rooms and areas is good too. They're not just different rooms, but different room sizes and layouts too. It doesn't look like something where the builder just took the full area of the pyramid and chopped it up into even pieces, making a room out of each. Which is what I see all too often...

The pictures make me want to visit it to see it for myself, which is exactly what a structure on creative should make a person want to do.

We'll see how the moderator votes go.

Well that is true, and after sleeping on it I realized that there lots of risks taken with this piece and Lots of them paid off, and a couple of them failed. That combined with my distaste of long hallways caused me to say no. But at least he was taking risks. So i'm going to say yes now.

Just try to do something every so often in a hallway so that walking down it becomes a journey and not a chore.
Good luck!!

I see that you have fixed the long boring hallways! If i had not criticized that, he would not have improved. Now your chances of Approval are that much greater!
