So this is my inspiration, Asgard from the movie thor


and this is where I'm at

yeah, there was alot more "simple" terraforming than I thought... I started planning it as a capital size back when town regions were "circular". Let me know what you think, and feel free to steal this idea for your next town. I will definitely not be building it legitimately in HC due the time it would take.

Looks epic, are the areas large enough to cope with all the buildings :) ?

Should be, i'd go insane if I kept expanding. I'm just having problems figuring out what exactly to build

I was thinking of starting with something like this




Really cool, when you finish it, you will make it public for download? xD
sure, if I finish

Alrighty, would've given an update yesterday but my internet was down... Anyways

So I'm about 90 percent finished with the first tower. Just have detail work to comoplete

So yeah, didn't mean to start the building off with a fruity start. It has 6 floors with each having the ability to be two story apartments. I always build with herocraft in mind so the lobby is set up for multiple lifts so each resident can reach their own floor with 1 click. Or perhaps this tower could be used as an alchemist's corporation headquarters.

I might retry working on the castle next but we'll see

Sorry guys for the lack of updates, I've finally found a reference for the castle that I like. I will post a pic shortly once I finish sketching my concept.

Edit:

Here is the layout I've decided on. The only part of the interior that is decided is the throne room. Anyways, hope this satiates anyone who was curious about this project. I'll probably start the building tonight and be done in a day or two

Okay, so 50 hours of work last week wasn't fun. Just got back to working on the palace and this is where i'm at:
2013-06-10_22.45.06.png

so yeah, I've fully finished the royal hall

2013-06-10_22.45.17.png

Just have to decide if I'm going with the towering roof, or just a roman-style triangular roof

this was a happy accident, great view from the throne... a metaphor for the power of the people or a reminder for the king? haha

and an interior shot. See all the detail? it takes me a long time to finally decide on a layout for a building because I always want to include a lot of intricate detailing. I'm pretty happy with the interior of the hall

Red, your work is looking sweet so far. This would've been a cool alternative to the Verstad we see today. Maybe if you come back in the faraway future with a new map in prospects, do you think we could implement some of these ideas together?

Sure, maybe in future map generation. It would be awesome to contribute something larger to Herocraft that just sporadic builds here and there, like i have in the past.

So here is where I am...

2013-06-21_23.11.29.png

I added to wall in front of the palace and a smal tiered wheat field. I wasn't sure how to add more detail.

I know what you're thinking... The statues are courtesy of EvilSketch over at Planet Minecraft. Check his stuff out, great tools for creative minecraft there.

Another aerial shot of my additions. I've added flanking libraries to the castle, probably going to extend into the southern section of the triquetra with additions to the palace.

Let me know if you have any ideas or tweaks, I would love to hear any kind of feedback.

Really good buildings. I liked the third, it is epic. I think it will take a long time, but it really will be incomparable! :D

Thanks man, but your compliment overshoots my work. We'll see if I ever come close to completion.
I don't think so at all, You have a lot planned out, have started the major set up of it inside the game and in general know exactly what your doing. When I see a project planned out like how you have it, I don't look at what you've got done so far you already know what your doing so in my head your already done. I know that even half finished this will be one amazing build to remember :)
