Okay, well I have gotten pretty good responses on some of my other stuff so I thought I would post some shots of the new People's Palace. This is where we have started building on our new server while we await the recommended build of bukkit. I will post more shots of the actual palace itself later, have some stuff I want to finish first, but this is some of the things that are in the palace or on the grounds of the palace.
These are shots of our enchanted library, it is on the 3rd floor of the palace all alone for the moment, the palace itself over looks an ocean, and on one side of it, two rivers converge into the ocean, hence the name Two Rivers. It is still under construction, that is why the torches are on the floor still.
Here are some shots of our basement storage area. There are 3 sub floors to the palace so far, the first one houses the storage area, a cobblestone generator room, a zombie monster spawner xp farm, a potion brewing laboratory, and the colored sheep farm and storage room. I will get pics of the rest of these areas tonight.
These next shots are of the 3rd sub floor, it is our large underground farm. I have seen bigger, but this is more than big enough, it will yield, 5.5 stacks of bread, 3.5 stacks of pumpkins 6.5 stacks of watermelon, and 4.5 stacks of cane. It really does grow fast too.
Last but not least, our breeding barn, and greenhouse area. The greenhouse was the first thing we began on after some initial basement work was done. It sustained us and gave us a lot of food to start off with. Compared to the large farm it is not much, but it did us good in a pinch, 1.3 stacks of bread, 1.5 stacks of cane, and 48 pumpkins, and 2.5 stacks of melon. The breeding barn houses cows, sheep, and pigs, the coop right next to the barn houses the chickens. The colored sheep farm is directly below the actual barn, it is the long stone hallway that has 14 separate pens for all the colors. The barn actually is on two floors, first and second, the green house is on the second floor.
This build has got to be the most fun I have had on minecraft yet. Remember, this is all survival, it is all legit. It has been a long road, but it is coming along nicely. There is currently an underground tree farm being excavated at level 4, and we are planning out the apartment area next. We have a long way to go, but it is exciting to have so much to do in minecraft. We also have 3 small fortresses that are built in the nether around the portals, they have storage, and all have good sized wart farms under them. I have had a couple of people helping me, mainly mining, and harvesting, some building. All your comments and advice are welcome, thanks for viewing.
Nice Place u got there but how pumpkins do u have because i think i counted about 100 or something like that
If you are asking about pumpkins being grown, the greenhouse gives you 48 at a time, the large farm give you 3.5 stacks at a time(224). We use jack-o-laterns a lot for lighting, we had not been to the nether initially, so we did not have lightstone yet. Maybe later we will replace the jacks with lightstone, but not sure yet.
Here are various views from the outside. Sorry about the rain, I was in a hurry and it wouldn't stop raining, lol.
Here is the zombie spawner that is in the middle of the palace we use as an XP farm, and a shot of the first floor.
Hope you enjoy, I will post more as we get more done. We have been doing a lot of underground work, so not much has changed, but we have been collection the stone up and will be adding some of the new features to the outside soon.
Okay, have some new updates, been awhile. We have completed the living quarters tower, and the massive underground tree farm, I will get some shots of the farm tomorrow, but here is the tower and some of the new machines we have built due to the installation of Industrial craft, build craft, redpower, and forestry to our bukkit server. Enjoy, oh, the castle puts out about 190 million EU.
Okay well a lot of new construction has been underway so I thought I would give you guys some screenshots. Our server is still under construction as a whole, but we now have mods and bukkit combined successfully, so we are getting the best of both worlds.
Everything here is legit. My favorite new project is the Palace expansion, it crosses over one leg of the two rivers, kinda of like a big bridge only it is actually part of the Palace. The other big part is the reactor room, we only have one breeder reactor right now, but we plan to build a few more high powered reactors and sell power to the residents if they so choose. Well here are the pics.
Here are some pics of the new areas as a whole.
This is my actual room in the tower.
View of the tree farm from the surface.
New port area.
Enchanted Library with new final floor.
Reactor room at level 14 underground.
I will post more when I get a lot more finished, hopefully you all enjoy.
Oh, as for the Jack-O-Laterns, as I said, they are cheap, and I only use them underground for the utility rooms, eventually we will porbably change them out, but for now they work, and being that this is legit, it takes a while to build and is very expensive.
