This build is an entry for the PMC Nether Empire contest. Probably my largest build ever. Enjoy!
As always if you have comments or concerns about the build then please tell me.
Looks best in Default.
# 5th Place :D

Personally all I see is "Smurfs gone to Hell" which is selfexplanatory but here's some better lore:




Hell, a dangerous, desolate wasteland, only few men could survive in such a place. Ran by Lucifer this treacherous land is rock bottom for anyone unholy enough to stumble into its grasps. So Satan sat, atop mounds of corpses, a bustling empire at his feet. He sat, watching mortals scream in agony as they were wrenched apart piece by piece. He sat, seemingly happy.

Well thats how it was, with more good in the over world Lucifer found it hard to supply payment to his winged henchmen. They dono t work for free ya know, its a hard job flying around and whipping the enslaved mortal souls. So what is the lord of the underworld suppose to do? Well build condominiums with sinisterly low prices of course! It worked, his idea blossomed into a huge town, then two! Lucifer would sit and watch his greatest creation day in and day out. Every day his citizens would be tortured and burned, at least they had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo to have a restful sleep in.

But alas the economy plunged, debts began to pile up for Lucifer. His condominium complex was going under, Lucifer fell from grace. He left his once multimillion dollar empire to the beings of hell, time passed. Mushrooms began to grow and structures became crippled. The towns now sit, abandoned, a once brilliant empire, a glimmer in the ever approaching mists of hell.

Tiny bits of information about the build:

  • The build took around 80+ hours to make... never doing that again.
  • I tried to focus on a cartoony feel.
  • The build is a mixture between Steampunk, Baroque, and some Hell style.
  • Each mushroom is different (the little ones are hand made, the large ones are made with Vs). There are around 100 mushrooms total.
  • Power linesconnecting around the build.
  • Train and train track going around half the build.
  • Multiple housesdispersed within an upper and lower town.
  • Multiple boats.
  • Clouds and sky designs around the build.
  • Huge middle mushroom, building, and pilers.
  • Dragon and bats.
  • A couple easter eggs.

Hi --NECK--! I'm an editor of China.
I've found your new project [h1]Glimmer in the Mist[/h1]. It's really a nice job.
Therefore I'm here to ask if I could repost your project to our website MCBBS:www.mcbbs.net/forum.php.
However, due to the fact that our country has blocked a lot of foreign websites.
So could you allow us create a new Chinese downlink.
I will list your name and the original website clearly.

I see no reason why not if you include the correct credit. Just shoot me a link to it when it's up.
Regards,
Neck

My only question is, what is the giant, glowing, intricate design floating above the city?
The buildings themseleves are amazing. But your palette has no netherbrick and the whole build doesn't have a connection with the Nether, I feel.

It actually has a fair amount of nether brick bud. #Download Not to mention quartz and shrooms come from the nether but it's your opinion.

Nice! But watch those roots on the PMC globe, maybe thing them out, especially since they share a big deal in the front picture. Also, your buildings are a little simple. But it's still great!

I don't think Shaders mod is allowed in thumbnails for contests.
  • --NECK--
  • Level 57

  • September 3, 2013, 4:55 pm
It is, I'm sure and if it wasn't they probably would have told me by now
  • Nuclear_pie
  • Level 42
  • Master Creeper Hugger
  • September 3, 2013, 4:59 pm
Oh, My bad.

What's Allowed:
  • Creative Mode
  • Map Editing Tools: MCEdit, VoxelSniper, WorldEdit

  • Teamwork: you can recruit help from others but you are the mastermind/team leader. They must understand that only you can enter the final project and potentially win. If there is significant drama about who created the project, we will disqualify it.

  • Shader Mods; shaders are allowed in presenting your build via video and screenshots

  • Taking inspiration from existing work; you may base your project off of another game, movie, or work of art, but it must overall be original work (i.e. - you like Stormwind from WoW, and you want to recreate it - using the architectural style and theme is allowed, but no verbatim copies of layouts, designs, or specific elements of the project)
  • NothingNew
  • Level 5

It was edited screenshots and renders that are not allowed to be in the submission. For 75% any way.
