Build and Concept
The concept behind this project was exploring the parallels of Deep Space and Deep Sea. Although Space is considered as mankind's final frontier, even today much of the deep ocean is a mystery to us and host to creatures just as alien as those we might imagine on other planets. The human element of this build is the large structural complex - an underwater laboratory which studies these underwater mysteries. The existing terrain was re-textured to provide a more suitable context for our theme - the palette of prismarine and other green/blue blocks certainly helps create a sci-fi atmosphere, reinforced by the technical nature of the machines and structures throughout the map.

Much of the map's architecture was deliberately designed to relate to the underwater setting - the radial plan of the structural complex matches the design of circular coral plants and the submarine ships zooming around the map have the shape and formation of schools of fish. This helped us intergrate the mechanical with the organic, man-made structure with sea-life.

They want people to pay for some of the maps on their website so this may be one of those pretty soon, unless they're still judging or something like that. So as for the download, it may not come for a lil while if at all.

I wonder why solo projects are competing against teams like this. It should be separate. It makes the most unfair competition

Hello prof_Lucus
If u don't have some good competition around how do u know to push urself further each time ? The stronger the competition the better projects get created each time.Don't give up on that ! See it as opportunity to grow and maybe one day get urself the oppotunity to shine.
Blockworks sure got a higher manpower which is good for getting ideas and than to create and and present the project. But if u have a real good concept and the will to do it- I am almost certain that it's possible to get to the same lvl as a single person.

Greetings Nergal Black Sun :)

Block Works has 28 members
28 - 25 is 3
There are 3 sides in a triangle
Illuminati confirmed!

Block works is the illuminati, This build is actually a hint as to where the illuminati, or BW's base is located, by the time all of you have read this it may be too late for me, but not for you, YOU MUST DESTROY THEM!
Iluminati :O
