Level 64 : High Grandmaster Architect
Hey everyone! I decided to post this on here in order to share a creation of mine(and my brother's). Here some background info on the castle.

(NO TEXTURE PACK IS USED, just the default textures)

This was a build that me and my brother(utenan) took part in for a creative build competition. It took us a little over a month to complete, as thats how long the competition was. It was made on a server, but no mods or pluigns of any kind were used. I used world edit later to make some of the terrain around it now, but I'll go into that later.

We started off with a 200x200 plot of land that started off at height 66(this was before the height increase). This is why the build is pretty much square as far as the landscape goes. In order to be able to build the structure we had to spend about 9 days TNTing a giant crater in order to fit our castle because its pretty tall. After that was done, we spent the rest of the time building the castle and making the terrain look as good as we could given that we had a relatively small area to work with.

Like I said, a few days ago I made some more terrain with World Edit, just so the castle and terrain wouldn't just be sitting in a big flat map and look all weird. That being said, it still doesn't look too great, buts its the castle we are really wanting to share with everyone. You can see the borders of our plot pretty well where it meets the higher part of the hills/mountains, so anything below that point was hand made by us. I might go back at some point and finish all the terrain and stuff..but probably not gonna happen anytime soon.

So yeah, think thats about it. Theres some signs and stuff at the top that give some statistics and things. There are also some secret areas around and lots of stuff to explore and check out, so hope you guys enjoy it!

For anyone that doesn't know, to install and play on this world, just download the .rar file, take the save folder out, and drag it to your "saves" folder found in your .minecraft folder.

Also, shameless plug for the server I play on :) Minecraft Middle-Earth
Progress: 100% Complete

Not sure exactly what you are trying to say.  Are you saying I shouldn't use shaders on my builds? Or that I just shouldn't use shaders in my screenshots? Maybe you just don't like shaders?  Or that my builds wouldn't look as good without shaders?

I like using shaders and how they make minecraft look.  I've always been against using photoshop or adding in things to pictures because you are editing your builds outside of the game.  Shaders can be used in game by anyone, unless you have a really old computer, and my builds can look exactly in game like the pictures advertise. 

All this being said, I uploaded 2 old pictures from the contest of my build without shaders, still think it looks ok.

Hey, AWESOME work!

I wanted to ask if i could use this castle as a model for the server i play, to build it there, not for spawn or something, just for me so i can live in it and have a great looking house :D i'll write that the design was by you, with link to here. okay? i will just use some small parts and create something else out of it ^^

Thank You! Really amazing build, I'm still in awe at how epic it is, the place is huge and very detailed. I wonder if you'd be willing to work on a large build for a PvP map? I was thinking of a team vs team kinda thing where 2 teams start in a large epic town and they fight against each other trying to be the first team to 100 kills. Just a thought, again thanks for letting me use this castle in a series. I'll let you know once the series starts so you can check it out on youtube.com/TheAndrealVox
