Hi guys! Just uploading a little tips and tricks video I put together that will hopefully answer my most commonly asked questions regarding building!

In this video, I cover the basics on 3 main subject materials -
1) Circles
2) Detail
3) Proportional Building

As expected, airships are a part of this - so it's a must for new airship makers!

Enjoy!

- Rova

Excuse me for bothering you, but could you suggest a good mod(for the cannons) and texture pack?
I've never tried this kind of thing before, so I'm completely clueless.

Hm, not bad.
Just one thing I want to point out.
Most of the balloons I saw in this video were exactly shaped like the circle.
Everything was on one line.
That might be easy to do, building just a strict line the entire balloon, but you can also go out of shape.

You have an airship, lets take one of yours for example. They have many round forms, pretty dynamic
and such. making like a dynamic balloon can really improve the entire look of the airship.
I will have see if I could post a pic of such thing somewhere, to show you what I mean.

I think I know what you mean. I intend to have my next few video go into a bit more detail about how to streamline balloons and make more aerodynamic looking ships.

Awesome video, I made an airship a while back and would like you to check it out if you have a chance.
Also this is a bit controversial. CIRCLES?IN MINECRAFT?

Lol I'm quite curious, I'm just fail at making circles that were intentionally, or even anything remotely round that looks nice, in fact i might try to see if i can make any sort of decent looking airship sometime soon, the video was quite helpful and inspiring.
