    Worked a bit more on part of the design, might have to use somethingother than coal blocks for this part since can't tell them apart from the obsidian.


    The one pillar that's still mising obsidian will be about 7 or 8 blocks taller. Most of the building won't be much higher than the pillar is going to be
    Also are there any easier ways to farm squids other then just randomly swimming around in the ocean?

    From the outside that looks really nice. I suspect, though, that those walls and roof will be too dark on the inside though. You'll need some lighter contrasts on the inside and not just the floor. Maybe some light-colored interior columns along the walls.

    Yeah, I noticed that a little when I went to try building a small room in it. I'll most likely have a different wall for the inside of it. Just going to have some problems with rooms that are near the any of the windows.

    Been a couple of months since I've played Minecraft but I decided I wanted to try working on this some more now. I decided to change what blocks I'm using because it felt like the building was kind of boring looking to me, did I little bit of work on it with obsidian, coloured clay, coal blocks and the new coloured glass. Wanted to get some opinions on what you think about the new look.



    Also need to work on digging out the area underneath of the building for when I work on building the lava lake underneath of the floor. Fortunately there's a large mineshaft underground which makes it so I don't have to mine as much. Currently I only have a little of the underground area mined out.

    World's doomed then.

    Oh well, I've been building a new Civilization that seems to be better than that one despite having a lesser population of Villagers and Golems, its in the woods, and this time I used pure survival to make it.

    This old world was partly made in 1.2.5 with Creative, but after 1.3.2 I used survival to build the rest. In 1.2.5 I had lots of those mossy stone stored up and so I just used those.

    Killed every entity on the world, started it up and mobs stopped spawning once they hit around 90. On a side note your half dead because a spider jockey attacked me and your horse lived because you where riding it.

    Haven't done much recently, just a little bit of mining in my mineshaft.


    Also enchanted around 30 books trying to get silk touch, so far no luck.

    My guess would be it's either near a lava lake, was struck by lightning, or your friend lit it on fire.

    Did a little bit more work on it today, currently the section I'm working on is getting close to being halfway done.


    Personally I don't like the light blue too much, I might end up replacing it with stone bricks and seeing how they look. The side parts are a bit plain right now but once I finish them they should look more interesting. Currently running out of a lot of things, almost out a diamonds for shovels, almost out of clay blocks and out of lapis for coloring the blocks.

    This may sound kind of dumb, but that looks like a cool looking end of a barn, especially with that window in the top middle

    In that case I should try to remember to also use this design when I get around to making a barn for my animals.

    For the floor, I like the 2nd and 5th pictures the best. (Picture #5 looks like sunlight streaming through the window to me) I would outline the glass floor windows with the darker floor color for contrast.

    I liked those two also, I figured the inside would be a bit to dark if I used something darker than that but wanted to see what people thought.
    Quote from 0wolfblitz0

    As for the rest, I like the shape of the arches. My personal preference would be to use something like stone brick for the frame of the building. Then use the stained clay to fill in the gaps. I think the stone brick looks more "sturdy" or something and you can use slabs and stairs to round out your windows even more. In my opinion, stone brick also seems to contrast well with most colors either light or dark.

    I might try that out but I'll have to see how it turns out, it might make the building seem a bit brighter than I want it to be if I end up using to much stone brick. I'll have to try out a little bit later and see how I like it.
    Quote from 0wolfblitz0

    Depending on how tall you make your structure, using a dark color on the inside of your roof can make it seem even taller. (Just my opinion) It seems to me that looking up to a black ceiling makes it look farther away and more mysterious than something bright like red. I suppose it depends on what you're going for here.

    Please post a picture of your build once you've finished. I'm interested in seeing what you come up with.

    Not sure if I'll need to make the inside look taller, most of the inside will probably be around 40-50 blocks tall with some parts reaching aroun 70 blocks tall.

    I plan on posting pictures as I build more of it so that I can get opinions and ideas as I build it. Haven't built any more yet since I'm still working on making a large enough flat area to build it at. I think I'll do some more work on it in a couple of hours since I spent almost 12 hours with almost no breaks flattening the land for it.

    Finally finished getting rid of the hill I was working on, in the earlier pictures it looks a lot smaller then it actually was. Took a couple of hours and quite a few tools to mine it up. Got a total of 4700 more dirt and over 5000 cobblestone from it. Fortunately there will only be one more area as bad as that one was, the rest of it should be easier and I shouldn't need as many picks for them.


    Also I made a thread about my project if anyone wants to offer suggestions for what to make it out of.
    Here's the thread

    Edit: Did a bit more work clearing the land.


    In the past 12 hours I've between mining and placing blocks I've moved a total of over 21 thousand blocks. Due to this I'm almost out of diamonds and will need to go mining for more soon. Currently I've broken 13 diamond shovels and 6 diamond picks during this entire project.

    Quote from MeganXXXXX

    Or how could I bring the villagers to me? (My land is like a town it has multiple buildings i created)

    So I could simply give them a house here. But I am not sure what i should do.

    AND i need to get the carrots and potatoes from them. (I tried everything to get them)

    If you want villagers but don't want to move you can just cure some zombie villagers. To get potatoes and carrots kill some zombies, they have a rare chance of dropping them.

    A mob trap would be the fastest but if you don't want to do that you can mine nether quartz, it's decently fast but mob traps are still faster and then you don't have to run around in the nether.

    Currently I have only finished a small part of the building so far, I think it's looking good so far but I would like to here other peoples opinions on it. Here's a couple of pictures of the current progress.





    Currently what I need help with is figuring out a design for the windows of the building. There are 8 windows total and I plan to make each window have a different design made out of colored glass. The windows are 16 blocks tall and 6 blocks wide, here's a picture of how the window looks currently. If anyone has some suggestions for some I designs I would like to hear them.



    Previous Post

    Right now I have an idea of a building that I want to make but I'm having a little trouble deciding which blocks I want to make it out of. I was hoping I could get some opinions on some of the ideas that I came up with or get some ideas from other people. Currently I have almost nothing built because I need to figure out what blocks I'll need for it. Here's an idea of what part of it will look like.
    Currently the wall is made out of blue,light blue and magenta stained clay, if I stay with these colors I'll most likely add some purple in and make the roof out of either cyan or black stained clay. Another Idea that I though of was making the wall out of blue, magenta,purple and cyan stained clay with the roof being cyan, blue, or black stained clay.If you have any opinions on the wall or have any ideas for other blocks that could make it look better feel free to tell me.Moving on to the inside of the building, I was thinking of having the inside walls be made out of a mix of white and light blue stained clay but I'm open to new ideas for that also. I thought that the floor might look nice made out of either clay, qurtz or a mix of both. Tried out a few different ideas but I'm not sure if I like any of them yet. Some of them you can't really tell the difference between.
    The problem I'm having with the floor is later on once I have more of it built I plan on adding glass windows to the floor and have a lava pit underneath of them. So I'm having trouble coming up with a floor design that looks good and will work with having the windows in it.Sorry that I don't have too much built yet but it's hard to build it when I don't know what to make it out of. Currently all that's built is the front door of the building and a little bit of the floor. The buildings total size once it's done will be around 100x120 blocks wide and around 100 blocks at its tallest point.Another thing to remember is that I want to build around this once it's finished, so I would like it if it wasn't too hard to make the surrounding buildings go well with it once it's finished.Feel free to post your suggestions or ideas. Remember that this is being done in survival mode so don't suggest blocks that would be to hard to get a lot of.

    Took a little while but I managed to clear out most of the jungle.





    The first screenshot is what it looked like after I tried to burn down most of it, second one is after 50minutes of clearing trees, third is 90 minutes and forth is after 130minutes.I also spent around 30 minutes clearing another part of the jungle but I didn't take any screenshots of that.

    After finishing with the jungle I started to work on making the land flatter.




    The first picture is from right after I cleared the jungle the other two were taken after 20 minutes and 40 minutes of getting rid of the hill. After that I worked on filling in the lake some and the hill near it.





    The first image is what the hill looked like at first , second is after 20 minutes, third is after 70 minutes and the last on is after 100minutes.

    So far I've broken 13 flint and steel, 6 diamond shovels, a diamond axe and my diamond pick is almost out of durability. Once I finish of the hill and fill in the other lake I should be about a forth of the way done with flattening out the jungle then I'll just need to collect the clay and smelt it. At the rate it's going as long as I don't have to use more than three or four more picks I shouldn't run out of diamonds before I'm done with this. And heres some screenshots of what my stats currently are.

    Personally, I use only diamond tools no iron ones, it's easy enough to get diamonds that I never run out. On my current survival world that I started two days ago I have around thirty diamonds, two picks, two shovels and an axe, I've also used up four entire picks so far and a couple of shovels. I use diamond tools because of how much longer they last compared to iron tools, although I still go through diamond tools quickly. Even with unbreaking III diamond tools I can go through them quickly, but it's so easy to get diamonds that it doesn't matter. With just an hour of mining I can get enough diamonds to last me a couple of days. On my old world I had enough diamonds that I ended up making around fifteen diamond blocks and using them as decoration.
