Welcome to my castle build, Stonepyre.

This is a project started in Survival (normal difficulty) since September 2011, using no cheats, no mods to create a dark, ominous looking fortress. I only used JohnSmith texture pack, and MCedit to elevate the build or transfer it to another world when updates warranted it for new blocks types. Chunky was used for the screenshot rendering


Build is now available for download! Please remember that:

  • This is still work in progress: still lots of work left to do obviously, and working in Survival takes ages (that's why am sharing now otherwise you guys will wait for even more years to get something useful).
  • Best experience with JohnSmith texture pack: am working exclusively with this pack, so your mileage may vary if you use something else.
  • Disable clouds! Otherwise they will go through the build since it's quite tall. Go to Options > Video Settings > Clouds:off to do so.
  • Please give me credits! I hope you will enjoy using the castle as much as I had building it, but please give me credits by linking to this page if you use it somewhere else. Takes five minutes and really is appreciated, thank you!

Enjoy!

I am still alive but haven't touched minecraft for a while. I don't think I like the latest changes where zombies can spawn under water, or mobs spawns after 3 days of not sleeping since it makes the castle unsecure.

I will see if and when I resume working on it, no promises though :)

Nice build, but completely useless since cheats were disabled and theres no food so its virtually impossible to fully explore around. Sorry but thats Rubbish

The food is in the basement, there should be plenty of chests laying around with all the stockpile you need to explore around.

I could make a save game there but then I suspect people will get lost trying to get out.

Amazing Build! Loved to explore it.
I think a huge dungeon underneath would fit the whole dragon-castle-theme perfectly.
Keep on the good work!

Nope, took a break, but I've started working on it again. Will need to export to a new world again to elevate it. Will let you guys know when it's update-worthy :P

And thanks for support people.

As soon as I'm done with building it, sure :)

But at the moment it's far from finished - I'll post a new update soon as I've made quite some progress since that project was first posted.

Thanks. Sadly, no download yet, unless there is an overwhelming demand for it, but I wouldn't recommend it. I think it would be best if I finished the build first, or at least got it in an acceptable state before releasing it :)
