PostSubject: Massive Minecraft Builds   Tue Oct 04, 2011 12:17 am

I have just completed my first serious MASSIVE build. Until now I've only ever done small houses and pixel art.

I began thinking I would recreate this temple in San Diego, (Wait for images to load!)

but the height limit for blocks in minecraft only allowed for so much detail.

The topmost blocks you see PRECISELY reach the uppermost limit for any block allowed on the map. (I built it from the top down)
I took a lot more creative liberties when I realized that it couldn't be a replica.

Still, as you can see, the San Diego LDS Temple was a heavy influence for the project. Unfortunately, there isn't as big a space to explore from the INSIDE as you'd think, and you cant really go into the corner spires. The entire build was made using only Snow Blocks, Glowstone, and Glass.

I'm considering re-imagining the surrounding area, terraforming the ground by hand myself, (I built this temple in the middle of an ocean biome, so the surrounding area is a blank canvas.) and perching little cottages in hills surrounding the area for fun. If you guys want to download this save to take a look at it yourselves, just ask, and I'll work something out for you.

Now share any massive projects You've been working on!

Very nice, Vivi!

I can't say I have been working on anything big (since my Minecraft has been acting funny), but a friend of mine is working on his own adventure map. From what he's told me so far, it's going to be massive and pretty interesting.

Very nice indeed, the detail and patience for this project is impressive.

So far the only massive project I'm working on (and by working on I mean "only just started") is creating a giant underground facility based upon an anime known as Tokyo Underground.

After that, not sure what I'll attempt. Maybe the Jedi Temple if I’m feeling particularly suicidal on my free time.

Good god Vivi, I haven't had a boner like that in ages.

All I can do is pixel art and that takes almost no skill because I'm just looking at pictures.
