I feel like it has been a while since I last posted, but supposedly it has only been 24 days since I shared Falshire! It feels like ages ago. Anyhow, this build was made for when I applied to the Aderlyon build team a few weeks ago. :) The time limit was 7 days to build something, and that... was it! So, I was completely free to make whatever I so wished, of whatever scale I wanted, and my girlfriend suggested a space castle when I asked whether she or my friend had any ideas for a completely random theme I hadn't tried before. My Extraterrestrial Earth build came pretty close to the theme though, so it was a tough challenge to make sure they were absolutely undoubtedly differentiated from each other, but I think I've made them different enough to say it's a whole different theme I haven't tried before! :D

I seem to have a bit of a habit of my builds in 1.16 being a little bit clustered though, so there are magma blocks everywhere. See, initially I didn't quite want a lot of magma blocks - I was trying to paste a bunch of stars and messed up the command and crashed the server! So... well, uh, I removed around... 60% of the stars that happened after that command? And it's still pretty messy, but I like the aesthetic - it definitely works better in-game than in the screenshots though, because I really don't feel I've done a particularly good job of screenshotting it, to be honest. Still, I'm quite happy with the build. :D

The build includes an absolute horde of flying things, whether it be floating ships soaring across the sky with magical sails carrying them through the abyss of the void, piercing comet-like asteroids of magical energy shooting forwards endlessly, giant spaceships powered by engines of flames keeping them going, small magical spaceplanes zooming across the dark, tiny little planets rotating endlessly in the sky, giant oversized galactic fish swimming through the black, or even huge destructive octopi looming around and clutching onto anything they can get and consuming it with a wild hungering passion for desolation.

It was really satisfying to see it all come together bit by bit, and then to work on the little castle down below, which... ended up being fairly underwhelming compared to what I had in mind, as I wasn't really sure how to go about the theme! I do not have much experience with castles at all. I've practiced a little bit since though so next time I post a build with a castle, I can at least assure it will be a very nice castle. Definitely not the best you've seen (unless you haven't seen many), but it will be nice, because it's an aspect I realised I lacked experience in and had to practice, so I've put in some extra targeted effort to ensure I get better at them. Regardless, I did feel pleased with the structures here, but I couldn't fairly call them a castle in the end so I settled on it just being an alien base. :) I was really pleased with the satellites though - I thought they were a pretty cool addition to it.

And lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I used the build as a staging grounds to practice huge organics, which is something I've seriously barely ever tried before. The closest, like mentioned earlier, is Extraterrestrial Earth, where I made the huge aliens, but in that I didn't really have any experience so that was my first attempt, and I barely knew what I was doing. The one here, however, I made sure to put a good deal more effort into. I researched how people usually do it, I checked up on various references, I used a mix of my own experience and awareness of commands and tools and hand-building and planned out how I wanted to go about it, and built it up, and I feel this is my favourite part of the build. It may not be the best part - I mean, to me it's the best part of the build, but I could be skewed by not trying before -, but, even if it's not the best part, it's a milestone for me. :) I haven't done something like it before, so I'm really, really happy for it!

And of course, again, thank you to those of you who've somehow been curious enough to read through all of this! I appreciate the amount of time spent looking at what I've made, and I hope it felt worth it and was nice to see. :)
And if anyone's curious, I did pass the trial. :) So, I'm now a member of the Aderlyon build team. ^~^
And hey- for once I added a download when I didn't need to, so feel free to look at the build ingame if you want. :) Although, as a head's up, you absolutely aren't going to find much use for it, but it can be fun to look at anyway despite that! :D
CreditAdditional credit to TME, Sildur's, BSL, Chocapic and KUDA shaders. :D I... don't know which one I used anymore! I forgot so I credit them all! I also used WorldEdit!

o: Thank you, Wannabe FallOutBoy. It's nice knowing this would be one of your favourites to live in - I wasn't totally sure about the build and how it turned out in the screenshots, despite really being happy with the individual things like the ships, so knowing that the outcome is so appealing that you would even want to live in it is quite a reassurance. :) I appreciate it. The encouragement for people to diamond it is also really nice, so thank you. :D

Thank you Nam. :) I appreciate the support - the build might have been a tad too busy and bundled in the end, but I'm glad it seems to still be nice. :D

This is such an extreme delight in all ways (then again, what creation of yours isn't?). :D BEAUTIFUL!!! It is also amusing to see this with such an extraterrestrial theme since I guess you and I were on similar wavelengths recently (my RTX ON entry was a flying saucer, thus alien enough). <3

Thank you as always for sharing your amazing art with us!

You're always so incredibly sweet, Kord. o: Your own build was indeed on a similar wavelength, and I hadn't yet seen that so that's a nice coincidence of themes. Thank you for the kind support as always - I'm proud of it being such a delight - and you're welcome for me sharing it as always. :D
