  • Elsewhere: Site 42

    I did some more looking around tonight, and I may have found a more suitable location for my new creative build.

    I’m dubbing this “Site 42”.  The only other site I’ve labeled is Site A, but there have been dozens I’ve looked at in between. Also, 42 is the answer to life, the universe, everything.

    Its a large sunflower plains, has a bit of coastline, a giant swamp to the south, and forests to the east and west.  It also has a nice hill nearly surrounded by rivers that would make a nice spot for a grand castle.

  • Elsewhere: Rethinking Everything

    I’ve spent the last few days looking at my spot in the new creative world, trying envision it.  I’ve got some vague ideas, but something dawned on me.  I’m thinking small again.  Part of what I want to do in this new world is build on a much larger scale than what I’ve done in Alpha.  So far, I’m planning things out in my head very similarly to Alpha.  I’m thinking inside the box, and not thinking grand enough 🙁

    The picture above is of the Agrazahn Catacombs, one of the grandest things I’ve built in Alpha.  I need to start thinking more like this for the new world.

    I think I need to explore some more… look for a better spot.  I feel like the spot I’ve chosen isn’t much different in size than my larger cities in Alpha, and I don’t wanna do the same thing over again!

    I guess its back to the drawing board for now.

  • Elsewhere: Planning Stages

    I’ve started some vague planning on my next creative project in Minecraft!  I’ve setup a new large-biome world in 1.14, and I’ve been scouting out the perfect location for a week or so now.

    My overall plan is to build a city-state, with a castle, walled city, smaller town, and villages/farms.  The big difference is I want to build GRANDER.

    Most things in Alpha are pretty small, as I began it all years ago before I really perfected my building styles.  Last year I built the Catacombs beneath Agrazahn, and it was so much grander than everything else!  I want to build more like that.

    This new world is also going to be less restricted than Alpha.  Alpha was limited to medieval/fantasy – no spaceships, etc.  The new world has no restrictions like that, but one simple limitation. Everyone who builds there has to build only ONE place.  Once its finished, they can go build something else.  I just don’t want it to end up like Alpha with dozens of half-built abandoned projects.

    Anyways, I’ve been scouting.  I believe I’ve settled on my location….  Not 100% sure but getting there. Its a nice sized area along a coastline bordered by a dense mushroom forest.
