Zerynthia Arthrocology

Hello all! Part three of the duo contest entry... sure. As usual for my yearly summer contest entries, I put in a huge amount of planning and effort to make this bigger-than-genesis-turtle butterfly city complete with major organics overhaul, infrastructure planning and plenty of jukebox music. Do note that its context is a sequel to the story Hero, so do check that out too, and for the worrying sake of music licensing, I would have to remove some adfly links to your own convenience. As usual, due to time constraint and pretty poor planning, I couldn't add more features than I would have, but it's still strikingly complex enough. Enjoy!

FUN FACT: Although all butterflies do have six legs, the largest family of butterflies called the Nymphalidae are known to stand on only four feet instead of all six as its fore limbs are held up against the body; it's only as useful as our own appendices. There was no space to put even one leg on this butterfly...

EDIT: Woot, third place: personal highest ranking building solo alongside teams in a project contest! Thanks guys for all the great support for this vacation project! Now since the contest is over I will freely release the Youtube links for easier jukebox listening.

Mods and programs used:
MCEdit 1.5.3 and 2.0 alpha
WorldPainter for template export
Voxelsniper and WorldEdit through personal premade 1.9 Bukkit server for organics
Sketchup Make for butterfly model reference
Optifine for performance (interface and texture effects omitted from pictures)
Chunky render
Paint.NET for template making and render edits

Jukebox Music
City Overall Features
City Features: Guilds
Background Story

Hi! The word "Arthrocology" which I coudn't find out in my dictionary., have you wrote it wrong? If not, please tell me the meaning. Thanks.

it's a play on words, people do it all the time xP
Arthro- is derived from arthropod or the latin word for "jointed", -cology is from ecology which is anything concerning the protection of the environment. Alternatively it's my own word to replace "arcology" (any architectural concept with ecological focus)

I can think this could be a great adventure or multiplayer map. Like a skyblock but instead on a boring small landmass, you are on the butterfly... Then maybe we will see people building even more details on it. :]

for an adventure map, I would probably select a more suitable animal :) this butterfly is too big for those anyway

Don't let the best projects in PMC contests discourage you from trying the competition out for yourself, it's the best way to learn from others and adjust accordingly. Rest assured you will reach the same level we do :O

Eh......Like I only use the most basic renders for my stuff, and I highly doubt a simple 'aeronautical' builder would be suited for it anyways. Thanks for the encouragement, I guess

You could mix things up with aeronautics like what I do nowadays: mixing butterflies with cities. In Minecraft, try not to limit aircraft to their sole function, but other creative uses like this: cities, maybe houses, animal fusions and other wild stuff.

Otherwise if you decide to stick with fundamental aeronautics anyway, try zooming in (enlarge your aircraft builds) to explain details of the cockpit or the engines etc. PMC peeps mainly are attracted to something imaginative so take this comment as a headstart :)
I could do some renders for ya if you like :O

Hi Destiny Gene I'm an editor of China.
I've found your new project

Zerynthia Arthrocology (SC PC)(1.9+)

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.
(Diamond for you :D)
