Aha, another creation of mine to once more join the fray of the many things I've made and shared already; a contest entry for the official Minecraft Discord's "Fortnightly Building Challenge" and a fun first attempt at the Cyberpunk theme. I have to say this is definitely one of my favourite builds I've made though, even while it was a theme I'd never done before, and I used similar techniques to those I've already put to use on the Castle of Colour and Light prior. I had great fun with it. :) So I hope it worked out as well as I'd like to others too! :D

There were more things I wanted to add, such as flying cars, a few more holographic displays floating about to go with the giant glowing birds, and perhaps some road systems of their own as well, supported around it all, but I figured if I kept adding more it'd get toooo cluttered and on top of that I've already spent pretty long for a fortnightly contest anyway so I'll stop where I am for now. :) I quite like how it turned out already and that's enough for me. It was worth it for me.

The build consists of a handful of different structures mixed and merged into a city, with little alterations between each one to differentiate the same hand-built creations while still not taking too absurdly long on something that otherwise would be a lottt of hand-building, and the bird - in an arguable act of skillful inability that I'm not exactly pleased with... xD - was fully hand-built so... that one was, but the rest at least had some time shaved off to make it easier, like the mirroring effect you can see faded beneath the glass from within the city, and so, so much more clearly from without it as well. :D I loved building this, and some excellent happy accidents occurred during it like a clown face on one of the structures making it seem like a fun house even though I hadn't originally intended on it, and it worked so seriously well that I just had to roll with it, so I did. :) And there were various things like that throughout and I have to say this was incredibly fun to build!

If you like it and, well, if you've somehow read my rambling, then thank you for the interest, and I'll update this with a little edit of how it does when the contest has some kind of judgement for it too. :D
Updated Edit: I won. :)



I wasn't really sure of how this'd turn out so seeing it like this, in all of it's full completed conclusion, feels so incredibly nice. xD
This is proof that trying new things is worth it, yes. :) In my eyes, anyway. Even if you may not have any idea what you're doing at first, you can pick up little techniques along the way, like how for my first structure in this it just wasn't that interesting in the shapes of the lights so they were all rather rectangular, but as I went along and built a few others the shapes started to get wayy more interesting and unique, and it felt so much more like what I was hoping it would be because of it. :)

This may not be the best build I've made - and honestly, my layout for the city itself isn't very good! -, but it's my favourite right now. :) Since I felt happy building it, I had fun, and I've finished it with a real interest and appreciation of the theme. :D If anyone's ever unsure of whether to try out something new then I heavily recommend just going with it if it's genuinely safe for you to do and you're interested in it. :) Trying new themes and ideas and techniques is okay even if it doesn't work out well and even if it could be better, because the only way you'll ever get better and expand your horizons is to try, after all! :D So, to all of the handful of people who read these words, good luck with every bit of creativity you ever invoke, and have fun. :)
CreditAdditional credit to BSL Shaders for the screenshots, after having tweaked the settings to get a more purplish hue. It worked excellently.

Thank you, Nitrox Nova! :D I'm glad to inspire, in that case. :) And glad it's seen as beautiful and that the detail is noticed since I spend possibly too long on the detailing part of it. xD Hurrah to that~.

Thank you, Weisey. :D :) (The buildings have now been declared insane, yes, for they aren't the most sound of mind and I'm sure a few of the buildings are a bit evil too. :o (Insane buildings sounds fun. I want to make an insane building.))

Thank you, NightWulf. :D I'm glad it's impressive to you- and well, I ramble a lot sometimes so yep the description's pretty long, but if this description's length impresses you then my nether contest entry would probably overwhelm you. xD That one's uh, a very long description, yes.

This is a very impressive build, Ukno, especially for a first attempt at the theme :o I like the variety of depth, height, and vibrant colors. It's bright, but not too bright for cyberpunk. The birds were a nice touch to add ^~^ Congrats on trying a new theme, and having a good time while doing so :) Good luck with the contest!

Thank you for the in-depth thoughts and the opinions about it. :) I'm glad you like it; thank you, and thank you for the congrats on trying a new theme and having fun while doing so too and evidently for reading through the description. :D I appreciate the good luck and the fact it's impressive. :) Yes. :D I'm glad it worked out in your eyes. Thank you, Flower. :) Yay.

You're welcome! It's always interesting to read through creator's descriptions and hear about how what they made came to be, and their thoughts on it. I approve :D

Thank you for your approval. :) And yeah, I can safely say I think the same about that; it's far more interesting to look at a build after seeing the thought processes that went into it, and even if there isn't all that much thought it can still add a little life and depth in a lore sense where otherwise there may not have been as much investment, in a way, even when the creation is excellent or not so excellent, because it can feel more personal. o: To me, at least.

I sometimes question how you manage to make things look as awesome as this.

A portion of skill, a sprinkle of dumb luck and beginner's luck mixed together in some of the themes (such as the clown face), and a lot of hand-building mixed with world-edit to support my preference for making everything as hand-built as possible and at times a few other plugins, founded upon experience over the years of my life I've spent playing the same game, I think. xD
Thank you again, Atlantean. :) It's appreciated. :D
