After months and months of despair

After having finally found a structure that suited me

And after assuming that I am just mentally ill


I present to you the Moszna Castle.



Inspired by the real “Zamek Moszna” situated in Poland, I quickly fell in love with the overall assymetrical shape of this castle. And if that was not enough, this structure shares a few different styles. Some parts may be gothic when others may be baroque. The left side of the castle has more details as you can see. The right side though has less flourishes but still, I am not able to build flat walls, so there are details in my version. Keep in mind that this is by far not a replica. The Moszna Castle also has an interesting story behind it which motivated my choice even more.

When I started the construction if this castle, I was terrified by the idea that it may end up being much bigger than it was meant to be. And obviously, this is what happened… The first thing I built was the greenhouse on the side. The rest of the structure then had to fit with it which is why the castle ended up being gigantic.

Considering the enormous amount of chimneys on the rooftops, I eventually decided to add some smoke coming out of them. I think it adds some dynamics into the structure.

<> Edit: I am very glad you like it. I thought I could share with you some kind of a timelapse I did with the few screenshots I took during the construction.
Here it is.

<> Edit: I just added a really nice render made by TheItalian828. Make sure to give him a follow on Twitter.

Facts:
  • Half of the castle was built while listening to Beethoven compositions and the other half with Chopin’s work. That may have influenced a few things actually.
  • I prefer the right side.
  • There is no inside (Please do not kill me, I would have had to build 365 rooms otherwise)
  • There is actual vegetation inside the greenhouse.
  • I translated the name of this castle only to realize I should have never done that.
  • It is bigger than Erisia and my Benedictine palace.
  • I had many doubts on my capacity to finish one day this castle.

(Make sure to check the update logs)

Make sure to leave a diamond if you appreciate how I spent these last 8 months and be sure to leave a comment if you have any remarks about the castle.

Update #1 (12/10/2016) : by Bulix_ 12/10/2016 3:33:40 pmDec 10th, 2016

So it has been a few months since I have not build anything. I have been searching around for a new project but sadly life is getting in the way. In two weeks from now, I will finally be able to work on something new.
On one hand, I just want to stop building these monsters and on the other, I am just passionate about them. As childish as it sounds, these creations I made mean a lot more to me than it probably should.

If you ever happen to find an unpopular construction that deserves attention and that has room for me to express myself, feel free to contact me.

Indeed, not many people are listening to classical music these days, which is sad.
And yes, his etudes are outstanding but his nocturnes as well as his waltzes are beautiful too.
For Beethoven, well, everything he has done is magnificient.
