Been on the server for a month and a half, so thought I'd show some pictures of what I've been working on.  Have a look at my album here.

 

I've had two main builds so far, my hobbit hole in the city, and my tower in the South.

 

My plans are to build a grotto at my hobbit home, using leaves, vines and glowstone.

I'm going to connect the river flowing from the NW to the SE under my tower, and build a gently, winding staircase up the tower with rooms inside.

I've spent a lot of my time on the server collecting hardened clay from mesas in the wilderness.  I'm excited that now the the externals are complete (well the tower is 1/3 of the way), I can work on the inside.

I've been admiring your tower from Dynmap, Its great seeing a photo of it as well.  I love how well it blends in with the scenery around you, almost as if it grew out of it!

Some update:

 

I placed a layer of glass through the riverbed, and drained underneath it

Starting on a storage room

I like the bricks and dark oak planks, but I think I need a third material (possibly for the walls).  Any suggestions?

Very nice, Zeo. I love the bricks, find them a bit difficult to work with myself, so I love seeing people use them. :D

 

White stained clay looks good with the bricks (and the wood,) I'd go with that.

Sounds good, and there is a bridge from SSE to the mesa :)

I love everything about the tower: the seamless blending into the surrounding area, the not-quite-perfect-and-that's-what-makes-it-even-better symmetry, and now that the rounded star cross-section is obvious, I can't wait to see how you cap this off.

Alright, I'm tired of everyone dis'ing my volcano, so I've removed the top, and built a wireframe to reshape it.  Let me know what you guys think!

For more realistic volcanoish-ness: real volcanos are not that symmetrical. The cone is generally offset to one side (commonly there are several lesser craters, too), and the surface is grooved and ridged. also, the cone flattens, the more it gets to the bottom, instead of growing steeper.

Yeah, I know, but I'm trying to limit re-work.  I'm kinda annoyed that I didn't flatten it out at the start.

Turn it into a giant eyeball. Or a boob. Or a temple. If you do do a boob you gotta make a second one though, so that might not be a good idea. Actually, make it a boob temple.

I'm afraid in this rather technical form nobody will ever look at it and say: Thats a volcano! No matter if you make it pointier at the top. Only shape you could go for is a cone, but that would still only make it an artist's impression of a volcano.

So either you reshape alot, up to a total rebuild, or you rededicate its purpose. You could make it round and tear a few craters in it, make a lava lake around it and call it meteor :)  That would still have a similar spirit.

 

 

 

... or a boob temple ofc -.-
