Skyscraper and small village

Post by croxxx on Mon Aug 01, 2011 3:46 am

Hello!
Just continued building with the new version on my (yet very small) village and a new skyscraper (not finished now).
I'm looking forward to hear what you think about it...

Skyscraper:


Village:

I like the towerblock. Is that a staircase i see inside?

I always thought the actual working buildings that were built in minecraft were really cool. I could almost imagine the guys putting up the steelwork on this one croxx Smile

The village looks like it's off to a good start, you should try the scaffolding block on the bridge, it may work for you.

Yes, it is a stairway you can see...
I think 'll post some more images soon (with glass in place)
BTW: glass block with smaller margins would be very nice (an maybe an option to turn "backside-rendering" of glass block faces on/off [The one you toggled on in one of the latest updates])

You mean the grid-like block?

OK, here you are...
A close-up of my skyscraper (still waiting for some windows Smile ) at dawn:


More to come.

P.S.:
The terrain slopes are always new generated when loading the game, aren't they?
I noticed that the roof of my house is sloped (and also parts of the skyscraper that shouldn't be...)

Slopes currently are generated on the landscape as it is loaded from disk / created from scratch. This means that if you build something and then restart the game later (or fly far away and come back), then what you have built will be 'sloped'.

If you now alter the chunk that has been sloped the slopes are saved to disk.

If you turn of slopes in the menu it only stops chunks getting sloped as they are loaded / created. Anything loaded from disk with slopes in it will still have those slopes regardless of the setting.

Slopes are still a work in progress; i tend to get stuff up and running then move onto something else. While i am working on the second (or third, or forth) thing, i mull over the first thing and see if i can come up with a better way of doing it.

After a bit of fine-tuning I can now present some indoor screens of my house, an "underwater" base and my finished skyscraper...
Thanks for placing my images on the start screen Slaihne. That was quite a big surprise when I started the game!


The corridor of my house


The orange room


The yellow room with something like a bathroom...


A complete view of my finished skyscraper


And here's your stairway Slaihne Smile


A close-up of the upper part


An indoor screen of the new underwater base


An overview over the whole village right now...

As always I look forward to hear some feedback Smile ...
Critics and suggestions welcome.

It's looking really good now Smile

I see you've got an underwater base now. Just don't get yourself a white cat Wink

A balcony might look good on the tower.

Well, I think a balcony doesn't fit for the skyscraper...
It may look better on a little (not too small) house...
