A while ago I opened a landscaping shop on the 77th Combine realm. I wasn’t playing that much in the past 3 weeks (as you might’ve noticed from the lack of blog posts), but I got 2 landscaping orders from other 77th Combine players and I made some trees and rocks for them. Here’s what I’ve done.
The surface part of the mine project has been an eyesore for a long time due to chests lying in the area and a temporary dirt barrier to keep my horse in (which changed its location several times as I was digging and terraforming and the horse was in the way). Now I finally removed those and made a proper storage room for the mine project and underground stables. This progress update is a smaller one, but I really like these two builds.
Some of my builds are planned carefully and when I’m building them I know exactly what I’m doing. In other cases I’m just following a shadow of an idea and hoping it won’t look terrible. While the first way of building is more safe and comfortable, the other one can sometimes lead to surprising and awesome creations. This new build is certainly one of those.
In season 7 our shopping district quickly became a mess of huge builds, including custom-made copies of Minecraft generater structures, from a nether fortress to an end city, then a custom ice spikes biome, slime trees (yes, really), several houses and other builds. There is an unofficial friendly competition going on – who builds the most insane shop. I couldn’t resist participating in making our shopping area even more awesome, so here’s my landscaping services shop.
There hasn’t been a post from me for 2 weeks, so I guess it’s time for one. I have been working on multiple projects at the same time, so the progress isn’t that fast on the 77th Combine, but there is definitely something new here in Alwadi.
As soon as I started building in Alwadi, my season 7 base on the 77th Combine realm, I realised it’s gonna be really hard to make good progress updates from it, because the most stuff will be built in the streets and alleyways between the houses and the actual houses kinda aren’t the point of the building style. I’ve run into the same problem a few months ago when I was working on the city of Redcoast, which was a part of the 77th Combine creative project. But I have done some progress in Alwadi, so I guess it’s time to make a post about it, no matter how unfinished the current build is.
I’m quickly announcing here that I’m not going to post regularly every Sunday anymore. From now on, my blogs will be coming out irregularly. The reason is that lately I’ve been feeling really forced to post weekly even though I didn’t want to. I really did enjoy the schedule, it actually helped me to finish the Futuristic vs. Fantasy base, because it forced me to make a lot of progress every week (or make filler posts, which is another reason why I’m ending this). However, at the moment I don’t really want to play Minecraft more than I enjoy.
This doesn’t mean I am stopping the blog site or that I will post less often. I am going to post roughly as often as I used to, 1-2 posts per 2 weeks. I will keep posting high quality content as I have been doing in the last few months and I will keep putting a lot of effort into every article. For me, this blog is the best way to show my work to a wider range of people and it will remain so.
Thanks for understanding and I hope you aren’t too angry 🙂
