    Thought i'd start a thread for us to post pictures of stuff we're building and other happenings on the server.

    I'll start with a few pictures of the mansion i've been working on.

    Picture from the front.

    Instead of having boring plain rooms i decided to go with themed rooms. This is the desert room.

    And the outdoor swimming pool.

    I'm not finished yet. Im in the process of creating a flat area in the front where ill build a garden and might build a wall around the whole area when im done.

    Great idea, I was going to do a video of Moria rather than doing tours of it so I'll put a few pics up here later, or maybe a fraps video.

    Wanted to ask you, what did you used for the flooring in the lava room? It looks like iron grills?!

  • Administrators, Business & Finance Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 32,414 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ DeVore


    Yeah.... just realised that its probably glass in a different texture pack...


    DeV.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,752 ✭✭✭ pablomakaveli

    I'm slapping together Humanjia, a little floating vanity villa. It's got everything a miner could need: wheat,tree,cactus and reed farms, crafting hall, storage area and a swimming pool. And all safely away from any nasty beasties:

    154930.png

    I've been tinkering with automatic farms. The cactus one is easy enough, but I've been struggling with the reeds. Thankfully Cherryghost has added a piston mod that let me build this:

    154933.png

    You press the button on the same side as the plants, which activates a gold block to push the bottom reed over. Any reeds above fall off and you collect them:

    154934.png

    I'm sure there's a smarter way of doing it, but it took me long enough to figure out that.

    That's an excellent system! I was trying to figure out something similar to that, wonder if it works with wheat too...


  • Registered Users Posts: 370 ✭✭ Xenon560


    It probably wont as it will cover the tilled dirt and you will have to till it everytime. i think


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,976 ✭✭✭✭ humanji


    Yeah, so far it only really works with reeds. Wheat needs tilled dirt. You can sort of work with cactii, but it's awkward and you're just better off having one of the simple version, ie a block over it so that new cactus blocks break off straight away.

    That's why I was asking about what piston mod was being used, as the fancy one for singleplayer allows you to harvest cactii pretty well.

    clearly not everyone shares your views Dev. I haven't been on all week, and this is what greeted me today.

    That may have been the griefer that wrecked the town at least hopefully it was because if it isnt we have another one still on the server.

    Ok. I was looking through the forums for updates on some of my texture packs and saw that one was started by Airbiscuit. Had me wondering was it the same airbiscuit from our server.

    Also nice texture pack btw might try it out later.

    After about 3 weeks of work i've finally finished Cavern City.:D

    This is a pic from the main chamber showing the staircase entrance and a few houses.

    enOdP.png

    The view on entering the cavern. I was going to carve houses into the wall opposite but changed my mind as the chamber can be expanded that way if enough people move in and we need more space and houses.
    Also the cobble patches are where there was gravel. I'll replce them with stone to make the place look better.

    The view on the ground floor of a house. While i'd like people to leave the outside of the houses as they are, feel free to style the interior as you wish.

    The view from the top floor of the house.
