I had to do a double take to realize that those were Minecraft renders and not HD photos! The city looks pristinely postmodern, and you managed to actually make a grayish color scheme not dull at all! And those diagonal buildings - and that winding, snaking highway - those really take the cake! Bravo!



Great to see fellow Minecrafters who enjoy writing as well! Lore really fleshes out an otherwise purely aesthetic world, kudos to you for going above and beyond all expectations!

Sorry for taking a little while on this response lol. Just wanted to thank you for the comments, glad you liked the renders. Sort of told myself I would spend as much time on the presentation as I did on the build itself, and it ended up making some rather nice images. As far as the build goes, I really just wanted to put a primary focus on the gritty detail and the atmosphere. The terrain was obnoxiously colorful (to no fault of barbarian, but it's really heavy lol) so I decided to let the color of the terrain contrast with the city itself, to what I think was a decent result.

Now the story. I never really thought I would ever do anything like that. I, for one, have never enjoyed writing. For some reason though, it was a different story here. I explained the feeling a bit in the preface, but it was almost a situation where I simply couldn't not write the story. It just worked... Before I knew it it was almost 4000 words and a fully fledged narrative, so I went with a full short story asthestic, rather than sticking it in the description. I am honestly incredibly happy that people liked that aspect of the project if they had the time to read it. I kind of almost want to try something similar again if I ever get the time.

Anyways, thank you. It means a lot that people enjoy this, considering it's completely new territory for me... Which honestly left me surprised when I actually won the contest.

Thank you.

This is an impressive project, especially in the amount of work that was put into the story. I like the concept of the build and how it fits into the story.

Also, those renders... gorgeous.

Thanks man. It was definitely something I've never quite done before. I had the material so I thought why not. Thanks for appreciating that effort.

And the renders. I won't lie, I low-key made a lot of choices when building to specifically try and compose hypothetical renders I would later do. I find that putting thought into that element of the process makes better looking results, even before the renders. Since then, it was all about getting a style I liked and rolling with it.

Anyway, thanks man.

I'm glad you like it. As for a short film, I barely had time to do what I did here lol. To take it that much further is practically an impossibility for me as of now.

My goodness, this is really something. And the build is nice as well... :)

Yes, I have also been carried away by one of those inspiring moments, just this year in fact. It definitely feels like you are under a spell or something when it happens, and after it's over you just step back and go "...wow...!"

Nice job Ryer, the story and the build. I thought I knew where "Starblade" was from but it turned out to be "Arcadia".

It is quite a nice feeling isn't it? I'm glad I was at least able to partially act on it this time.

A hint, the sense of the name Starblade as it is used here is not too fargone from the origin of the name. It's mostly just me giving a nod to something relatively obscure that I enjoy. It would not surprise me is no one who sees this build knows anything about it lol.

Ok, last guess (here) so as not to hijack the thread- is it from Ayreon?
