200 subscribers. I truly never thought I would come this far. Cliche as always, I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support throughout the past few months. I in no way mean to beg for diamonds, but I worked exceptionally hard on this plot. For the past 3 months I have been grinding inbetween the small amount of time I have doing plot reviews, making terrains, school, sleep and blah blah blah- I think this post is quality enough to pass my previous record of 68 diamonds on a project; I also think it deserves it. The plot is 46x46, but inside is so much more.

Interestingly enough I have made a name for myself as a maker of terrain, but my architectural and especially enterior and detailing skills far surpass my terrain-making abilities :P

This plot is way too in-depth to fit everything into 20 screenshots, there are plenty more (without captions) I have posted to an imgur album, here. I will for sure be uploading more screenshots later, but these 33 will have to do for now.

So, after 3 months, it is finally finished.. Or is it? (I have a tendency of expanding plots I have finished so there's a very large possibility I will one day come back to this)
This plot is easily my favourite (finished) project to date. All of my plots have some sort of connection to me; this one is probably the plot I have put the most 'emotion' in.
If you weren't aware, I am a Spaniard. I was born in Spain, it is my first language, and I lived there for nearly 8 years. I currently reside in the US, and this plot was very fun for me as it was nostalgic (the architecture is actually Belgian, but I made the pallatte and atmosphere to resemble a mediterranean vibe). So, there is a lot in this plot. All of the writing in the plot is in spanish if you weren't aware, so let me try my best at explaining.

Castillo Cefiro translates to Zephyr Castle. Zephyr is the Greek (minor) god of the West Wind. I named it this because the sea foam and ocean breeze all originate from Zephyr.

Buildings (+ some minor lore):

Panaderia de Agri-Dulce: Bitter-Sweet Bakery
  • A bakery on hard times; I have detailed the interior so that the stashes of flour have attracted swarms of flies, hence 'Agri-Dulce; Bitter-Sweet'
The Pub (lol i didn't come up with a name for this)
  • A pub where travelers and citizens alike come to enjoy a good meal and a lot of drinks. The kitchen, outfitted with a freezer and a heavy duty furnace, is more than enough to service all of the patrons. The Guards enjoy the tavern especially. In fact, one of their only (and most frequent) troubles is the occasional bar-fight.
La Vaina Quemada: The Scorched Scabbard
  • A blacksmith's workshop complete with an outdoor forge and smelter, as well as a small shop for storage and wares.
La Barracon: The Bunkhouse
  • Home to several influential people in el Castillo. The Owner of the Pub and the Maestro make their residence on the lower level, while the Blacksmith's room is on the second level. The baker lives in the small cramped attic. Merchants stopping by can sleep overnight in the cellar, outfitted with many beds and a fireplace.
  • The Owner of the Pub, Senor Casilla, is a widower with two kids. His business is extremely successful, though he is just emerging from the lower-middle class. He just recently purchased the largest room in La Barracon, which has access to a private balcony.
  • The Maestro, Teacher, and his wife, who is a barmaid at the pub, are common guests to the main keep for dinner. They have recently had a baby, whose crib can be seen directly to the right when entering their room.
  • A fish salesman frequently journies to the Castle to sell his fish, caught by his brothers and sons. He always sleeps in the bottom bunk on the left in the cellar when he arrives. He can commonly be see with his cart selling fish and clams in front of the Pub; his freqwuent customers are the occasional guard, the Pub owner and the Lord's cook. His family can be seen fishing around the castle; they have 2 small boats in their fishing fleet, a Catamaran and a Cutter Sailboat.
La escuela: the Schoolhouse
  • A very small building outfitted to be a school. The school can only hold 4 students, but the Castle has a relatively small community so they have always been able to manage.
There are quite a few more buildings in this plot; I will finish the list later, apologies for not finishing before posting.

This plot was not completely a solo-project. I recieved some help from two amazing people that I am very grateful to:
Getoji, for his Cutter Sailboat Design
Cocofox3, for the basic structure and outline of the castle

A few other thanks goes to the following people, who, without their opinion, the plot wouldnt be what it turned out to become:
lavakid88, lmdohar, Dustfinger, helicopterhelen

One final small note; this plot was griefed a while after the screenshots were taken. I was planning on expanding the castle to include an underground section, but sadly due to lack of motivation (caused by the grief) I was not able to finish. The plot is ~99% fixed, and I will hopefully one day expand it.
