Hello everyone!
Back with 1:1 scale Minecraft builds with a brand new project to start the year!
I wish a lot of inspiration to you all throughout the year.






Concept Explanation:
In an alternative reality and unknown location, people struggle to survive in the vast lands of what they call the Burning Sands.
Their huts are hanging above the ground attached to vertical rocks to catch fresh breeze and avoid sandstorms. Their location gives them access to water from an underground source which provides enough for the local inhabitants. Hunting is also a big part of their daily routine but the types of creatures they hunt remains a mystery.

Inspiration Board
The map is inspired by Zephyr Sanctum from Guild Wars and the various concept art produced.




Make sure to check out Theo Prins & Ruan Jia's concept art. They are stunning!

I visited the map, and it's really interesting In Game.
Sometimes, renders and screenshots are beautifull but the build iIngame is disappointing... Here it's different, the landscape and houses are perfectly adapted to each other. The atmosphere is strange and pacefull.

Well, it's a really great job !

tout a fait, et c'est très intéressant.
A vrais dire les seule chose que j'ais trouvé moins bien c'est:
-l'ambiance et les aménagement qui ne sont pas a la hauteur de l'ensemble. En effet c un peut vide pour une structure qui fait pensé a un comptoir de troc une place commerciale et qui de fait doit fourmiller, déborder de chose, de matériel, de vie.
-L'autre chose est au niveau de la peinture que j'ais trouvé un peut trop random et qui du coup donne un aspect au montagne un peut flou. on a du mal a capter la forme des roches. Pourtant les roches du désert peuvent avoir des formes et des couleurs splendides dans leur sobriétés, dans leur finesse et dans leur nuances.
Cela dit c'est ton style et il est aussi appréciable d'avoir une diversité de créations et de techniques dans la communauté.
voila voila c le pavé! :D

je vient de revisité! en plus de ce que j'ais dit cad des critique "mineures" :)
il ya quelque chose que je trouve légèrement maladroit. c'est certaine parties de la structure, genre les passerelles etc qui sont beaucoup trop large pour leur épaisseur premièrement mais aussi trop large pour leur fonction.
Mon avis finalement sur ce projet est comme je l'ais dit plus haut pas mauvais loin de la :D
c'est juste que personnellement je suis très tatillon dans mes créations sur l’âme ingame (a pied). ^^
