What I've been up to..


Community Administrator
I wanted to share something with you all that I have been working on for a past few weeks as I cleared a large area, laid out a design, built it, tore it down, redesigned and rebuilt, etc.
I aimed to build something a little more modern looking than the usuall and seemingly traditional buildings I have seen on our server over the last few months. I started out this project on a single player map I've had since the beginning, as I didn't want distractions while I worked :roll:

The first picture listed is the front of the main structure, the Mansion. I've been toying with mansion ideas now for like 3 months on both the build server and pvp, but I wanted to do something a little more drastic. Size of the main house is 33x36 blocks with a height of 14 blocks (3 stories).
Here is the Main Front view.[attachment=16:1bbce0uq]Main front.png[/attachment:1bbce0uq]
Same view, but at night. Lighting effects are nice.[attachment=15:1bbce0uq]Front at night.png[/attachment:1bbce0uq]
This is a closer view of one side of the front of the house. The odd looking cream colored block next to the door is a Glowstone.
I have ZERO torches in our outside of this structure. As you will notice in the pictures to follow, it looks much different without torches. ;) [attachment=14:1bbce0uq]Front Detail.png[/attachment:1bbce0uq]
Here, you can see the Dual-Purpose lighting I have installed on this house. The Glowstones light both the outside AND the inside at the same time. [attachment=0:1bbce0uq]Side Lighting.png[/attachment:1bbce0uq]

I have added a few furnishings such as bookshelves, including a library study, and still have a few areas inside the home to complete before I can share them. However I thought to share this with you so you know where I've been the last couple of days ;) :oops:
Please feel free to comment! I may do a Youtube video of my home so you can see it more personally! :cool2:

Arr my pictures :(
I will be rebuilding it on the server very soon actually. I have been collecting and cooking the things I need for it. I am currently in the process of adding a few things to it hehe. See if I still have the pictures here tho.. where did I put them..
Edit: Only problem I have with doing this properly atm is that nether is disabled so I can't go get the lightstone I need :(

Oh, yeah, I meant to reenable it once we moved to these forums... at least in a read-only format.
