Presenting BlockWork's entry for the PMC Nether Empire Contest

The Pit

Lore


In the deepest recesses of the Nether lies one of mankind's darkest secrets. A culmination of greed, savagery and depravity, the The Pit exists as a tribute to our race's most devastating characteristics. After the World's surface had been plundered of all its natural resources, the never-ending search for our growing population's requirements drove us deeper and deeper into the World's core...

However, whilst scouting for resources, a mining company known as The Enterprise made an extraordinary discovery; an enormous pit, a scar in the landscape of the nether, abundant with fuel and resources which would ensure The Enterprise's financial success. It was only after the operation to remove these resources had begun that the true nature of The Pit became clear. For millions of years this land had been cultivated and harvested by a civilization of lava-demons; fearsome creatures who far surpassed mankind in both size and strength. Despite valiant attempts to protect their territory, these creatures were eventually overcome and enslaved by The Enterprise. Chained to their own home, these tortured creatures now watch in agony as their realm is torn apart in the ruthless search for resources.

The Concept



In order to generate the right kind of atmosphere, we decided to focus our build on a limited area of the map. By using a smaller space we were able to add a vertical emphasis to our project which in our opinion suited the concept of The Pit perfectly. The heavily mechanised and industrialized style of our build also lent itself to areas of dense details, an effect more easily attainable with a restricted land-area.

Despite the heavy detailing throughout the build, we took efforts to ensure that such details played a role in the function and lore behind our project. You will see many of the machines in the process of collecting resources such as netherrack and lava; in addition to these machines in action, two organic statues of nether demons also added an element of dynamism to the project which we hope complements the static nature of the structures.

Nope.

Firstly we only used one half of the map, and that section was walled off, leaving unedited terrain inside the pit. I also consulted multiple contest judges about our decision to wall off the terrain, and they said it was okay.

CAN ANY OF YOU READ, YOU ARE SAYING IT IS TOO GREY AND CRAMPED IT SAYS A MINING CORPORATION (in the lore)made the stuff, of course they would make it grey, mining corporations are dull and grey and he said it was a scar and mining companies spend more time mining and less time making it look pwitty!

We don't always get what we want in life, son.

You've gotta think about it from both perspectives, what incentive is there for us to help you out? A semblance of credit which 5 people might see isn't worth it when we can get full credit and possibly money from other projects. If you want builders, get your friends to help out, don't clutter the comments section of projects please.
