Wow really cool builds.
Merry that building with the Dome is amazing! Cool

I play survival craft. I got minecraft recently but I have to get used to the controls. I like SC but It seems there is more out there for Minecraft.

I have some Questions for you guys.
Do you share your builds with others? Where do you get your inspiration?
Do you make your own textures?

I'm kind of new to creating things in these games. I was playing mostly survival mode and trying to build something nice while battling lions and bears LOL
But I started seeing some cool builds like these and it makes me want to start building. I don't really know what is possible in these games. I guess you start with something simple and blocky.

Thanks Friday.

The only way to share builds in Minecraft is to share the world.
I don't make my textures. In minecraft they are called texture packs. You can find some at planetminecraft.com. You can check around the web too, but they are version sensitive, so be careful what you download.

I found the texture pack I use in the world with the dome bulld by watching a builder called Keralis on Youtube. He lists the texture pack he used with a link in his video. Others do the same if you like what they use.

In addition to Keralis, there are a couple of others that are great builders that I follow. One is BdoubleO100, aka Bdubs. He has a series called Building with BdoubleO. There are lots of others that have different styles. For instance, Keralis does mostly modern builds, while Bdubs does a lot of different styles. The Youtubers are where I get most of my inspiration. The water wheel on the Mill is from a video by Bdubs. I also watch the Mindcrackers. They are a group of Youtubers that play on a private while listed server. I follow and watch all of them as they build up the world. I got the idea for the newest building for storage from Nebris on that world.

I also like the challenge of building contraptions with redstone. You can check out the Minecraft Wiki for more info too.

I play in survival in Minecraft, but on peaceful mode. No monsters. If you like the challenge of the monsters there are three other modes... easy, normal and hard. I hope you have fun in Minecraft.


Thanks for all of the info Merry. I'll have to look at the vids. That's one reason I am trying to switch to Minecraft. Because of all of the help out there.
So you can play survival with no monsters? Sounds good. You can do that in SC as long as you don't interact with anyone. If you kill anything for food or accidentally hit someone they all come after you. I often play in that mode when I'm trying to build the outside of my house, otherwise it's next to impossible.

I have another question. Do they have challenges that go with the worlds? Like you have to follow certain tasks or something. I recall hearing something about maps or guides to the worlds somewhere but I'm not sure what that was about. It seemed to me like you can make the world follow certain rules while making it perhaps.. I dunno, forgive me if i'm confusing you. LOL

There are world creators that create worlds that are adventure maps. Others, like Vechs, create super hostile survival maps. I've heard of some, but never played them. I watched a series by Bdubs where he and another Youtuber, Generikb, went on an adventure in WynnCraft. That was quest based. Here is the link to the playlist. I don't know if these are still around though.

There is also Play Minecrack where you can play games. I love to watch them play Missile Wars. Their website is here.

You can also look at Minecraft Maps.com to see if there is something to your liking. I believe you download the map and play it on your computer. I know there are servers out there too that have adventure maps for multiplayer.

Happy hunting.

I've been working on a build in Minecraft lately. This I call The Keep because it is where I will 'keep' my storage. The storage will be on the lower levels and I'll build rooms on the upper levels.

The exterior. It's not finished yet. I'm not sure what I will do with the roof.





The interior of the only room I've started doing... the dining room.





For those of you who play Minecraft, I'll let you know, I've turned fire spread off so my fireplace is safe. When 1.9 comes out the iron fence on the chandelier will be straight and won't look like that. I'll take another picture after.

I've done a little more on The Keep. The roof isn't finished on the top level yet. Also there is some glass that still needs to be placed in the windows.

This was taken from across the river with the fishing hut on the left and the mill on the right.


Front door still needs some detailing.


These two were taken from the back.




Taken from the village pumpkin patch.

It does take a lot of time because I also have to mine or craft those bricks one at a time too. BUT, it is so much fun!

Just me Gram. There are no workers available in Minecraft.

I finished the main roof on The Keep.



Next time I play, I'll go into creative and fly up and take a picture from above. It looks really neat.

This is a ruin I've been working on.



Aerial view.



A pretty sunset with silhouetted trees.



I found a water temple. I thought I had taken a picture before I demolished it. Oops! I guess not. Not sure what I'll do with the blocks yet, but the gold blocks were nice and I found a small cave under it to loot as well.
