GCT is done!

I kinda fell off the face of the earth in terms of updating various blogs and journals. Sometimes real life (and chronic illness, unfortunately) catches up with me. I want to post on Monday’s server run (it was quiet due to problems with new settings in the updated Plug PE) and take pics of the various things 576875 and Swarmhut have been building. I’ll get around to those posts at some point, but here’s the big exciting news – aside from retail spaces and the food court 576875 is building on the mezzanine, Grand Central is finished! It’s going to … continue

GCT, part 2 and some notes on last week’s open server

Made a fair amount of progress in the past few days on GCT. It’s starting to actually resemble its inspiration now… …well okay,¬†when there aren’t huge holes in the floor/wall. Also there is apparently a HUGE cave system under the south tracks. Going to have to investigate that later. Track level is done, lit, and has a ceiling. One of the challenges of this build was how to keep the various levels lit without having a mess of torches, something that proved challenging as GCT has >6¬†block high ceilings.

At the Circus!

All right, Crazy Busy-making Stuff is over with for a moment, so time to catch up on posts about my MCPE builds! I finished the circus a hair too late for the Reddit WBC it was created for, but it still came out cool and I’m pretty happy with it. It gave me something to do with the dead flat mountain space on the main subway line between the Crystal Palace and the Castle.

Server Time and Building Challenges

Happy April Fools Day! Just a housekeeping post, cause I’ve been busy.

I was going to do another open server session tomorrow, not realizing I had a schedule conflict. D’oh! So rescheduling that for sometime Saturday evening – not sure when yet, but will update the time on the sidebar as soon as I figure it out.

The MCPE subreddit‘s Building Challenge this week is one I’m excited about so I’ve been hard at work adding a circus to my world. (Something new for Saturday’s guests!) I actually finished the big top last night only to realize that at some point the game had stopped updating the db with the changes I was making so I lost a good evening’s work after a crash. Arg. Thankfully it’s always quicker to build something the second time around!

Back to it, I guess!
