Hey guys!  Just want to take a moment to say thanks for the 2,000 subs!  Couldn't have done it without you!  ;)



undefined

The best structure of the week was a massive, technologically advanced city titled 離歌`戰場上的哀歌, which translates roughly to ‘Elegy Song from the Battlefield’.  It was created by RemXonE.

undefined

This map is definitely one of the more mysterious submissions I’ve seen lately on PMC.  It looks like something out of the far future, with many different motifs and architectural elements, woven together in spectacular fashion.

undefined

Most of the architecture appears to be residential in nature, with rows of apartment complexes, streets, and odd infrastructure lining a majority of the map.  It has a very dystopian feel to it, an almost barren, abandoned stillness that bears a slight resemblance to modern day Pripyat, only bigger and more industrial in nature.

undefined
Pripyat, Ukraine

There’s a partially submerged portion of the city that appears older, and slightly ruinous.  It looks as though it once served great purpose, but was abandoned due to some vague calamity, and then drowned in a rising, permanent tide.

undefined

On the outskirts, reaching out over the sea, is a vast complex of giant axels and pistons, ensnared with gears and giant clocks.  Anchored to the axels are gigantic, flat runways (resembling the top section of an aircraft carrier), that rotate from vertical to horizontal positions.  The whole thing looks like an overly complex Rubik’s Cube, lying atop a bed of clockwork.

undefined

Lying in the center of the city is a towering, technological chateau, woven with bright red wiring.  It looks like a fusion between a victorian chapel and a circuit board, with a great red aura hovering overhead.  It’s downright ominous, and looks like something straight out of The Matrix.

undefined

Overall, this is something very unique.  It doesn’t really look like anything I’ve seen before on PMC, and it’s purpose and backstory remains a mystery.  Whatever it is, it’s something you could puzzle over for a very long time.  It’s pretty intriguing.

undefined



undefined

The best terraforming of the week was The Great Islands of Exodus, created by ClassyChicken.  This is not your conventional terrain.  It’s bizarre and exists far outside the box.

undefined

The Great Islands of Exodus is a swirling, mountainous landscape.  The land plumes like mushroom clouds, and a watery abyss lurks beneath the curving cliff-sides.

undefined

The ecosystem here is dominated by large, vibrant mushrooms (perhaps a reference to the iconic shape of the pluming islands).  The stems branch out like trees, and the soft caps hang over them like a vast canopy hanging over a forest.

undefined

In the center of the map lies a great steam-punk tower, complete with spinning wheels, spiraling architecture, and steam chutes.  Below the tower are small huts and buildings, sitting upon the watery grotto below.  There are large steam-punk boats as well, which seem to serve as the primary mode of transportation.

undefined

This is a terrain that incorporates different elements.  It’s not just a rigid mountain range, or an icy tundra.  It has more character that comes in the form of architecture and organic work.  It’s a landscape that uses structures and 3D art to accentuate itself and become more lively.  It’s like the backdrop of a great odyssey ready to be told.

Unlike the structures and terraforming this week, the organic category does not tell a story, nor is it mysterious.  It’s simply gruesome, but I mean that in the best way possible.  The best organic work of the week was Vaikelaevade - The Sea Monster, created by TekFuz-Mc.

undefined

This is a monstrosity the likes of which I rarely see on PMC.  It's as if the Loch Ness monster was captured and experimented on, bombarded with a high level of gamma radiation, and then submerged in a vat of nuclear waste for a year.  This is the result.  It looks like an amalgamation of grotesque fins, gnarled teeth, and twisted appendages, all wrapped up in a sheet of infected skin.

undefined

This is like the physical manifestation of disease, pollution, malformation, and hideous genetic mutation wrapped into one terrifying package.  It’s definitely a memorable project, I’ll give it that.

You should make a Month in Review too. (Read this before the blog gets even more viral)
That red wiring though...
Nice review!

Thanks, buddy!  I'm not going to be doing a 'Month in Review', mainly because it would only encompass 4 weeks.  I don't think that's enough of a compression of content.  What I am going to be doing is a 'Year in Review', though.  I think you guys will enjoy that.  ;)
Year in review is what I'm gonna be doing(not same title copyright of course) :D

Year in Review is going to be pretty tough, at least for me.  It's hard to crown one project 'the best' amongst a veritable mountain of projects.  xD

What you can do is take the best projects from every week in all categories and then do the selection...
You will only have 52 projects per section for the year.

I was actually thinking about narrowing it down to the best projects of the month.  That way, there are only 12 nominations.  :P

Great Review!

Think One Of My Builds Will Ever Get On Week In Review?

Also Happy To See Tommists Planes On Week In Review :)

Thanks, buddy!  One of the things that I like to see when I'm choosing builds is creativity.  I need something that pushes the boundaries and really sets it apart from other, similar builds.  I think the thing that set Tommist's planes apart, were the beautiful liveries, and the detail on the landing gear and engines.

That said, your planes are right on the brink of qualifying.  All you have to do is add a little something extra and you'll be there.  ;)

Amazing! I really loved the structure of the week this time around... it was pretty interesting and left me wondering what some elements were for, or if they had a deeper meaning to them that was hidden behind a thick veil.

Also, hate to be that person, but... I found a typing error and I didn't know if you noticed it or not, so here. >_>

Thanks for pointing that out.  I don't know how that could have possibly happened, mainly because I copy/paste all the text from a word file.  Then again, PMC has been kind of a wreck this week, so I guess anything is possible.  xD
