Hello Everyone! 

Ninaman here, and as some of you may know, I have been working on this build, Blackwind Metropolis: A City in the Sky for a while now. After 4 months of work, it is finally completed! It has been so much fun to build, experiment, and learn from working on.

The build itself consists of floating islands with factories, towns, a city, houses, fuel tanks, gears, power plants, and more. It also features a large mechanical bird! There is also a partial interior to the build including the main tower block of the city, a hanger, an airship assembly bay, a cockpit and interior of the bird, several houses, and part of the capitol airship. The build is all the style in general of steampunk, but more specifally a more "rusticpunk" and industrial vibe to it. The specific parts are: Village island 1, Village Island 2, Gear/Houses Island, Factory Island, Power plant island 1, Power plant island 2, Clock island, Power dome island, The Mechanical Bird, Skycity, The Capitol Ship, and other smaller airships, balloons, and biplanes. 

Wow. Big block of text there! Lore can be found below.










On another note, I have a bunch of people to thank from throughout the project. Here they are:
RoloFolo for hosting the build on his amazing server GoofTroop
Freekm1234 for an AMAZING render!
MrFluffyCakes for several great renders!
Thunder for several great renders!
Carloooo for a cool render! :o
MinecraftedFilms for a lovely moody cinematic. Nailed that dark tone.
BuddlerTruppe for another great cinematic showing off the build!
Lucker12346 for teaching me how to biplane, and derping as moral support!
Juli for the lovely graphics for the lore!

And finally, The Angel Block Society for taking some time to take a look and consider my application! 

Alright I think that sums it up!

Thanks so much guys!

Time for my third comment on this. I can't get over this build man. I LOVE it. You gotta teach me how to build like that! Haha. I'm really hoping to get started on a flying city soon. (original, right?)
Yeah it's original. And thanks so much dude haha! Once again, I really appreciate all the nice comments. I've been super busy with school lately so I havn't had much a chance to be building :c during the summer maybe I'll have some more time to work on a new build! :D

Do you just have a bunch of projects going on at the same time, switching between all of them? Just wondering because I personally get bored when I stick to a project for too long...
Also wats up dood? :D
Sorry for the late response man! great to hear from you too :3 And sorta. I usually have one major project that im working on +commissions. Sometimes a small one will be on the side too. And for a project with this much stuff I didnt really get bored haha. Wasnt repeating a lot of things x)

Omd nina... Uve got so far,I havent talked to u in ages im sry i cant ur cinematics anymore...
I just don't have the time to do the edits. well mikeyto1o was happy with modern hd texture pack trailer,
but that was the last vid i did. Rly sry i just left u in the blank. If u need any renders just send me the photos through PMC and i can edit to make u a front cover for ur projects when needed.

Hope to talk to u soon. -Hex
Hex! :D Hey man! 
And its ok really! No prob at all. Ive been less active on MC recently with school and all anyways. I hope to be getting back into it once school calms down tho! :D And Yeah ill let you know if i ever need ;D Good talking to you dude!

Me: (1 second ago) AH! why did i go away! i miss such masterpeices as this! I must come on more often!!!!! :O
Great build Nina! I really REALLY do need to come back on here more often, ill miss more masterpeices such as this from you!
Have more diamonds for an apology! :3
haha xD Thanks so much for the nice comment man! Long time no speak. Im glad you like the build too dude! ANd Im actually taking a small break myself sorta lol. School has been crazy recently and Ive been concentrating more on that. I hope to be back soon as well :D
Your Welcome dude! :D Really? Thats nearly the same reason I took a break, I had to get ready for school and I had lots of homework once I started so I couldnt get on often, and I just needed to get of the computer. :3
Well good luck with school and I also hope to see you back later with more projects! 
Thanks a lot! And you as well dude! :D
