(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
