      Hey, I'm just using CMDCam-Mod 1.12.2. and I film using OBS Studios (it's free and doesn't cause lagging like some other screen capture - so simple and 4K quality) ...I should say it doesn't cause as much lagging....
      I have Replay-mod.....but don't really know how to use it. I think it's a better mod for tutorials and time lapse etc. When I have some brain space to learn things....I'll get to it.

      Happy New Year To Everyone! :D


      The Planting continues in Tuscany...

      Having had enormous fun creating a formal pleasure garden, I now focus on creating pastures and fields.

      I recently enjoyed viewing The Westfold Project by ArdaCraft; I have been completely inspired by their amazing crop fields!
      I highly recommend checking it out!

      I'm not gonna lie to you....I have tried to emulate their creative genius as completely as I can. Alas, it is coming a lot harder to me, than it seems to the team at ArdaCraft....

      thanks for the inspiration guys :D

      here are my attempts.....
      :|

      Having survived the annual migratory convergence of my ancestral lineage
      (a Family Christmas) -


      I managed to duck away and forge on with the Tuscany Project.

      Under the influence of perhaps a little too much Christmas Cheer, I started on a Pleasure Garden for the Castle. An elaborate and decorative hedge maze can be found at the end of a Grand avenue, leading off the Western flank of the Castle.

      For someone who feared building a "Castle', I seem to be having way too much Fun :D


      This is a shot of the Western Flank before planting....



      After Planting.....


      This is what I got up to....

      Building Castles is a blast! You get to think about how people could live in it, where the kitchens are, where the King would sleep, and his courtesans and friends. The guard barracks, all that stuff.

      Great Job my Aussie friend, keep up the good work!

      :D When choosing subject matter for a new building project; the Sky is usually the limit! Anything is possible!

      However..... having said that; there are a few Iconic Build Subjects/Items that intimidate the Begeebers out me.

      Two in particular stand out as Way Too Hard - Not having Fun - Not Gonna do it!! They being Churches and Castles.
      With their rigid archetypes and need for strict adherence to form; these two subjects are daunting and extremely difficult to successfully achieve.

      Being entirely distracted by the enchanting Tuscan landscape and its mystical gardens; I seem to have neglected to account for the multitudinous Churches and Castles that litter the Tuscan Landscape. Facepalm! ...Too late now :(

      So here goes........
      These are my first attempts.

      Hey CF's :D Thanks for the Message!
      I just started working on some detailing around windows now! I've added the shallowest of buttresses...despite all the advances made by their Renaissance - the Tuscan's just don't do buttresses! They have much less glass in their walls than Northern European Churches, I s'pose.
      Thank You, as always for your Excellent advice. Shall go play around now.

      ps....I didn't know they made vertical slabs. ....I live in a bubble!??!
      I'm so glad you let me know! I must get me some vertical slabs :)

      pps........just wall posted some developments on the Castle. Couldn't help myself. Was having too much fun and made a full blown Castle with chapel and private residence, barracks and stables and 3 gatehouses.....so much for thee fortified dwelling :|

      I loved your fantasy projects. But THIS one ... is ... stunning. I love the Tuscany. It is one of my favorite places to go on vacations. And YOU have perfectly captured the feeling of this marvelous region. Also - as always - a perfectly matching background music of Aspirin. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi to all, Please forgive my having to re-publish my Tuscany Build Video.
      Due to a very slight, but entirely annoying delayed Audio Sync problem (Peaking my OCD!) - I relented and uploaded the video again (does include some footage of the new Villa).

      Returning to Solo building with Taking on Tuscany has been a lot of fun and an amazing adventure into Tuscan Architecture. The simplistic landscaping has been challenging. After the last few fantasy builds; realism can feel restraining, proving a little difficult...

      A big Shout out to Aspirin60 for another beautiful musical accompaniment!

    Cib Corner - Interview with Roman_95

    Level 27 : Expert Pixel Painter

    Welcome to
    the Cib Corner, my own personal nook in the many crannies of the
    internet. The purpose of this series is to showcase the creativity of
    the Planet Minecraft community by celebrating the members that have
    contributed to the community or have achieved feats that continue to
    amaze and inspire others. So sit back, kick your legs up and read on!


    Introduction

    This month, I was lucky enough to have the chance to interview none other than experienced organics builder, Roman_95.
    Known mostly for his creations of teeth and claw, Roman has posted a
    large variety of works including spaceships, artillery and a large array
    of vehicles.


    Before I begun the interview
    itself, I asked Roman to properly introduce himself and explain a bit
    about himself (and so I could take my mind off the dragon waiting
    outside the door).


    "My name is Roman. I am 23 years old. I like Dragons and heavy music. I mostly like Rock, Metal and their subgenres and sometimes Dubstep or Dark Industrial Electronic. I actually spent about a year practicing how to create music."

    Roman continues, explaining how he came to find the game and how one little discovery became a passionate hobby.

    "It all started about 4 years ago when I was introduced to Minecraft by my friend. I
    f not for him, then I would not be where I am today. I started with 2D sculptures. I built
    them block by block and the final result suited me.They were small (from
    20 to 50 blocks in height). A few weeks later, it was not enough for
    me and so I started building 3D sculptures. I did not see any guides on
    the construction of Dragons or the construction of sculptures in
    general so I was self-taught."



    "When
    I began creating 3D sculptures, the dimensions of 3D and 2D sculptures
    were the same. 50 blocks height? Not enough. Need more! But I soon
    realized that building a sculpture block by

    block with big dimensions was difficult and took a very long time to make.

    I needed help. I learned about mods such as Voxelsniper and Worldedit. I
    started using them and I started to improve. But there was a
    big problem. My PC was not powerful and the game lagged. After
    using these mods, I learned about MCEdit... And began a new
    era of construction that continues to this date. My one, not so powerful PC coped
    well with the editor, not perfect but much better than the game. Two years passed using the editor. I studied it 100%. By this time, I had bought a more powerful PC, but I still used the editor. Why? Because I'm terribly used to it. But small details sometimes have to be done in the
    game itself."


    Question Time

    On September 11 2017, Roman created his account on Planet Minecraft. His first project, The Dragon, instantly received a great response from the community.

    Q. Why did you join PMC?
    A. For a long time I created sculptures only for myself. And one day I wanted to share one sculpture. That's how I appeared on PMC.



    Q. Did you have any goals and if so, have you achieved any of them?
    A. No, I do not have specific goals. All achievements and events happen by
    themselves. For example 300 subs, interview for Minecraft.net, this
    interview. All this motivates me very much, it reminds me
    that I am doing good things and I need to continue

    Q. What inspired you or helped you to grow?
    A. I draw inspiration mainly on the Internet. It can be randomly found
    pictures or video. But mostly pictures are a source of inspiration.
    Despite the fact that I really like Dragons, I do not use the first
    picture I get. I have a very strict choice. I can make a project on one
    picture or combine two pictures into one project. In addition to the
    Internet, I can generate something in my head. I can also find
    inspiration in real life.


    Q. Do you have any interests or hobbies aside from your building endeavors?
    A. I had one or two years of practice in making music. I have a Soundcloud page.The last song was uploaded 4 years ago. Sometimes I draw on paper.

    Spoiler

    From my previous PMC avatar


    Q. To date, which project did you most enjoy working on/creating?
    A. There isn't one particular project. The projects I liked working on most of all were:
    "Allosaurus", "Acrocanthosaurus", "Huge fantasy Dragon", "Dragon on
    skyscraper", "The Dragoness", "Come to me into hell". For many reasons. Most

    of all I liked working on the colors of these projects, this is the
    common main reason.




    Q. Do you have any advice for members out there who may be interested in following in your footsteps?
    A. Think whether you're interested in it. If you are, build something that you
    really like, because you only get the pleasure from the construction
    process.



    And
    that concludes the interview! After thanking Roman_95 for his time, we
    part ways and I walk away with my fingers crossed, hoping nothing will
    eat me.
