Level 76 : Legendary Boss
Lore


some 300 years ago, the 9 trading families of Gurkhul were forced to abandon their homes due to the great flood caused by the melting of the great ice sheets in the north.

The seas washed over the entire land, covering the once fertile valleys with a deep blue blanket of water.

Taking to the skies in a small emergency airship, they sailed for over 3 years until they passed the edge of the old world and the endless oceans, coming across a small group of islands; formerly the highest peaks of some great mountain tops.

Upon colonizing the islands, the 9 families established grand houses in the style of old; in a land where resources are scarce, most of the free land is given over to farming and grazing for farm animals, as well as small woods for logging. Due to this lack of space, it required the builders to create tower houses that reached for the sky, in the fashion of apartment blocks and high rise buildings.

On the surface, citizens live an idealized life, however bickering between the families has led to political intrigue and those who cannot afford to live in the grand tower houses are forced to live in small farming huts or the slums built under the mountain.

On the black wool V-Snare you have on one of the buildings on the bridge, how do you get the traintracks to be upside down?

Steampunk tends to be much more industrialised, and generally more gloomy and overcast, due to the heavy use of industry. 

I don't think this build could be considered truly steampunk, due to the abundance of nature, intertwined with the buildings. Therefore, I classed it as 'Steamshire' - a mixture of Steampunk and the Pastoral ideals of Romanticist writers, such as Wordsworth. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastoral

Essentially, it's what I imagine Steampunk would be like if it was set 200 years earlier than its usual Victorian Setting.

I tend to build a bit more "steamshirey" then lol. It has a lot of the same rustic influenced buildings with trees and nature. However mine also have lots of pipes and turbines. So I'm not quite sure what you would call it.  Hmm. XD

The texture pack is for 1.5 - not a resource pack for 1.6; I believe you can simply search for a resource pack converter for 1.6 though if you wanted to try it out.

Steamshire Island is the colloquial name for the island, used by the residents.

The proper name of the island is 'Novron' which means New Land in the ancient language of Gurkhul (which is where the first residents were from)

The island itself is just the peak of an ancient mountain top which survived the deluge.

Ridiculously good. Subscribed, favorited, and a diamond. Whole shebang. My favorite build of all time X
