Salmon's desert oasis build

Discussion in 'Server Builds' started by salmon_flavour, Oct 15, 2012.

  1. So I have been working on this for the majority of time I have been on this server. Progress is slow. I get on a roll for a while, then get bored and stop for a week. Suddenly I get another idea and I get back to it. Plenty of time spent just flying around it trying to decide what to do so its a miracle in itself that it has actually come together so far.

    I wanted to try something different. Aka not a castle, and in a non-conventional biome with a non-conventional main material. This is what I ended up with., did I pull it off?

    At /warp salmon
    and /warp salmonview

    Image doesn't work :(
  3. Work now? Imgur is being weird. Tried logging into my profile and it says I have 0 photos (which is a lie). So i tried the generic uploader and it says some photos "don't exist"... when well of course they do, it just uploaded them. Oh well

    Iron blocks are basically shiny doubleslabs without the crevice in the middle :p

    Looks like you had a mind to build the Burj Dubai, then tore down the top 70% of it and made it into something else. Still, not bad.

    I used to like iron blocks more when they were all smooth and shiny and didn't have ridges.

    Is that the one where they do the thing with the stuff and it changes whether you're on the top or bottom of the building?

    It's a sentence, it just doesn't make as much grammatical sense as
    "Bison bison bison bison bison."

    cool build! it does look like the burj!
  12. Yes I took my initial inspiration from the Burj Dubai. Liasha is right in saying I actually built the entire thing, then decided it wasn't quite right and took it down. Left it for a couple of months while I worked on the bottom floors, then rebuilt it again with a different style this past week.

    I ended up changing the 3-point equilateral base to more of an isosceles triangle shape so I could have larger rooms with a single and more intuitive point of entry.

    I agree with what people say about the iron, i'm not a huge fan of it myself either. But the thing is I wanted the build to be silver/grey. Snow is too bright, and wool is well...wool. There wasn't really much else I could use.
