Castletect is an MCEdit filter for creating soaring towers and majestic gate houses in your world.

A sample world save is available from the Imgur album.


Copy the .py script into the MCEdit filters directory.

How to use this in MCEdit:

You drag a selection box, then select filters - Round Tower - set the material type (three blocks) and press "filter".

It uses your selection box for the dimensions of the tower.

Do the same thing for "square tower" and "fill". "Arch" works when your selection box is from one side of a wall to another.

Let me know of any problems you find in the comments and I will do my best to address them.

Sometimes I hear people say 'crash' when they mean 'hang'. Look on the MCEdit console or output log and you may find it's just running. If so, leave it for a while so it completes. Otherwise use the newest MCEdit for stability improvements.

If you're a noob who still builds everything by hand and has no idea what MCEdit is, you might as well leave now. Nice filter though, but I'd still rather build modular sections myself and import them as SCHEMATICS so it's not all grey.

after you use the filter, go in-game and decorate it a bit more.

I don't like MCEdit because it withdraws the experience of building it brick by brick and sitting back at the ned and saying, " I built that." Not saying,"My MCEdit did that for me, because I can't build anything." Thats why I dont like MCEdit unless you are using it to terraform a hill or something out of the way.

You're right, instead you can say "I built that in 5% of the time it would have taken otherwise, and now I have more time to do something else". For my purposes, it just makes things faster and no-one cares that I used MCEdit because with map creation it's gameplay that's important, not how it was made. It's a fantastic tool, it's free, why not use it?

I like this tool a lot! It's useful for building spires, and allowed me to build a far off castle for aesthetics rather quickly. Thanks!

You can select three blocks for construction material: main material is the walls, secondary material is the base and inclusion, and highlight material is floors and roof.

Here is a sample of using different blocks so it isn't all grey: imgur.com/a/5MaTX

The tool is an accelerator - i still spend hours on the build once the large scale features are generated.
