I'm developing an underground style that captures a tomb-esc feel, with geometric design and high ceilings. My average room would be 5x5x7 carved underground.
As for above ground, I have been making a wall design I haven't seen anywhere; it's basically a fancy lip.
I don't have pictures of it yet, since... I've been underground for the past week on a new server I'm playing on. :tongue.gif:
I've noticed I use the same sort of style when building structures. What about you? Post pictures if you have them. I'll do the same when I can.
My style varies depending on the setting. Currently, I have a wood 20x30 alpine chalet, with peaked roof (made from stairs) in a snowy pine forest. First floor has 6 rooms, 2nd floor has big 7x7 windows facing sunrise/sunset and a loft.
I prefer the excavation of caves, developing them into massive homes. Unfortunately, I have no screenshots though on an RPG server, I created this massive cave (hidden w/ the use of pistons & water) that led into about the 30th level and from there, I organized it and made it look flippin amazing.
I have a thing about building underground. My house on the surface is always a really average looking square house, but underground is an extensive network of heavily decorated rooms. Not sure why I build that way.
I change it up. I used to build large, temple-esque buildings to live in, then I did some sandstone/glass modern looking houses, then I did underground living areas with water/glowstone roofs and lots of rooms. Most recently I'm making a living area on the beach that is all glass with rooms spread around and connected with glass tunnels
Mine always seem to be pretty organic in nature. I'll start with a small dirt hut on the first day, and start my mine. Then i'll change the hut to wood or stone, start adding windows. Then i'll make it bigger or make a second room for lots of storage chests. Then i'll expand out more for a farm or something. Then even more with more utility rooms and such. Then a living room or a kitchen or whatever I feel like doing. But they always start off as a small hut then just organically out from there. I'll often try to do different materials... even recently i built a nice house out of snow and wood, looked pretty nice. :smile.gif:
I prefer a modern building style. This is my latest house:
Nice! What are the walls made out of?
My first building develops from the hole I dig into the first cliffwall I come across. Then, something freestanding, but generally without any consistent style. Whenever I build something new, I try to make it look way different from whatever I've done before.
I like to get halfway through building something amazing, then through fear of ruining it, I stop. Then I get bored with the world. Then I delete it. Then I stop playing Minecraft for 2 weeks. Then I feel inspired and make a new world. Repeat.
Yeah, I build plain looking box towers compulsively. I need to get out of the habit, but they're so convenient for shooting mobs from safety (and checking the area for creepers before I leave the house in the morning).
actually im building a giant spaceship now :biggrin.gif: i love space
