Built to resemble Brederode Castle in Holland, before it was destroyed. I took several artistic liberties while designing this. The whole structure has been built in survival and is used as a faction base.

This structure is built on the MassiveCraft server,

A drawing of what the castle most likely looked like

Brederode Castle (Dutch: Kasteel Brederode), also called the Ruins of Brederode (Dutch: Ruïne van Brederode), is located near Santpoort-Zuid. The castle was founded in the second half of the 13th century by William I van Brederode (1215–1285). William was a descendant of the lords van Teylingen, who were related to the counts of Holland. The castle formed part of the high lordship Brederode, which had been given in loan in the 13th century to the lords of Brederode by the count of Holland.

The name Brederode is a reference to a wooded area called Brede Roede (literally: broad wood), that was cleared and on which the castle was built. The castle was at first not more than a tower, but around 1300 Dirk II van Brederode had the tower pulled down and replaced with a proper castle.

Eyyy good to see Danny's still building away on Aloria. Did you place this in one of the survival worlds or Regalia?

So you put a Dutch inspired castle in the middle of a Jungle Continent?

I love this, I know the joy and pain of building large structures in survival mode, you really nailed this. Not overly large, yet packed with details. Right on mate!

You collected ALL the materials yourself by mining and such?
If so, no wonder there is no interior shots.
