I found another water temple just a couple hundred blocks from the first one. I took a picture, I had to drink a night vision potion to see it, so it's not a really great picture. I don't know when, or even if, I'll dismantle this one. I'm still not sure what I might use the blocks for and I have so many. I might just go in and get the gold and the rarer blocks and leave the rest standing.

I added a little more to the ruin site.

Thanks EQ.

I did a little exploring today and found 3 more water temples. They are actually called Ocean Monuments. They are not very rare. I've marked them. You know 'X' marks the spot. You can just barely see the monument under the 'X'.

Some of you know my love of symmetry... well I gave the local village a face lift. This is a work in progress. There will be houses all around inside of the cobble 'fence'. The cobble 'fence' is the outline of where the inside walls of my new castle will be.



This is a picture of the floor plan of the future castle. The courtyard in the centre is where the above will be. I don't think I'll be adding the moat though.

That looks like quite an undertaking. The finished product will be awesome. It is already impressive.

Thanks EQ. It will take months. I have started collecting the clay for the bricks. Problem is that I occasionally get sucked into an underground cave and get distracted. I'm wearing a Minecraft version of scuba gear. The helmet helps me breath and see underwater for longer periods and the boots help me move around easily.

I've made a little progress. I've built the church, church chambers and one tower, 1st picture, and I've laid out the outline for two other towers and the guards quarters, 2nd picture.





I've run out of materials so I need to collect more before I can continue.

That's going to be huge!

About Banished, I've got a couple of saves that are sooooo slow. I mean they just don't progress, or won't. One save is about 27 years and still has a low population count. I do have quite a few saves that are flourishing so maybe the slow ones I should give up on and delete them. I just find it odd that a few saves just won't 'grow', no matter how they're played.

Thanks Gramcrackers it is definitely getting big.

For the slow saves in Banished. Make sure that you build enough houses for the youngsters that grow up. I usually click on the houses and check how many males and females have grown up to make families and build that many houses. Good luck.

I've made some progress. I finally found a use for the blocks I got from the ocean monument.

I added a little to the interior of the church.



This is the front entrance of the castle.



I have one side of the front done.



Still so much more to do. The tower on the left is still a work in progress. I'm not really liking it right now. I might have to start over with that.

Thanks. I saw Bdouble0 do something like that. He is inspiring me a lot. I should take a picture of what is behind it. lol!

Edit: Here is a picture of what is behind it.

Hi, I'm still working on the castle. I've made a few changes to the front facade.



Here is a closer look.



What do you think?

That is a very cool castle. Good looking.


About Banished and building: those villagers just won't build anything they don't want to. I got rid of those saves. They were just too aggravating.

Thanks Gram.

From this picture, you would think I'm done.



But no, looks are deceiving. There is still a lot of work to do. The roofs in this section and a couple of towers to complete.



And more roofs and another tower in this area.



Still lots of fun left!

I've accomplished a lot today. The front exterior is pretty much done.



This picture is taken from the top of the trees in the far left of the picture above. It was taken a couple of hours later. This side is done too.



I still have a couple of towers in the back, but I now have three sides done of the exterior.

The exterior of the castle is completely done, finally. It's taken about six weeks from start to finish. I am now looking around for ideas for the interiors.

Front from the northwest.


Front from the north.


This is the back from the southwest.


The courtyard. I still want to build a few more houses in here.

Awesome project. Cool Do the villagers need a fortification or is it for fun ( the challenge of such a build )? You have to make your building materials and grow crops for the villagers and I think I remember there was a water disaster, or maybe a fire quite awhile ago. Was that a dog in one of the above pictures, or a wild or domestic animal?

Thanks Gram. The villagers fend for themselves. They don't need to eat. They just wander around and say ' hmm  '. The fortification was for fun and the building challenge as well for me. I think the disaster was in Banished.

In the first picture above, the black and white animal is a cow and the pink one in the tree is a pig. You can find cows, pigs, sheep and chickens wandering around in the wild. I started this build in survival (collecting and crafting the materials needed) but tired of that after a couple of weeks. I finished it in creative (place one block on your hot bar and it is endless). No crafting necessary.

I've added a ceiling in one part of the castle. The sea lanterns are not from creative. I used the ones from the temple I found first. I will run out soon and the rest will be from creative.



This is a divider wall that I came up with. I still will need to add some detail to the other walls.



That's all I've done so far. As you can see past the wall I'll have a lot more to do. Also you can see that I have a pet cow in the castle in the second picture.

I took a walk around a nearby ocean to take a break from the interiors. Part of the trip was by boat to get around some huge mountains.

Minecraft comes up with some weird terrain. Floating island.


Floating tree.


There is some amazing terrain too with these lava falls.


The view of Bodiam Castle as I arrive home.


I'm still working on the interiors, but I haven't taken any pictures lately. Next time.

Wow! Very interesting things indeed. Your castle and land is fantastic.
It would be so cool to be able to create your own planets/scenery like that in other games. Wonderful outlet for creativity. Maybe I'm just a controllfreak.

I was playing Banished when I got this shot. I've been playing one town trying for the last 2 achievements. I'm in year 70 something and I'm heading for 100 for the first achievement and year 200 for the second. A long way to go. I have over 1300 citizens and I have run out of room. My entire large map is covered from corner to corner. And what do I see...

146 Nomads heading to the Town Hall looking for a home. No thank you.
