Introducing my pointless castle...
There's no consensus of design. I'm just building it however I feel like.
I know some people don't like cobblestone buildings, but right now I don't feel like doing anything about it.
Here's my mining shaft that goes all the way to bedrock level. It doesn't connect to any natural caverns though.
. Got the idea from X's Adventures in Minecraft
There's even a fountain for a faster way to get down.
Obviously this whole thing was built out of a mountain.
I hit a diamond vain near bedrock so plenty of diamond tools to use.
I have cacti in my greenhouse...
Most of it was built in peaceful mode, half of it while watching Babylon 5. I have no idea why that's important. o_o
My castle/mountain abode is nowhere near done, but I have plans to make a giant penguin structure. I've even got designs done on grid paper. Will post pics if I ever get around to it.
Damn.... I really should be working on modeling instead.
