Darkduck Estate - Pic Heavy
 
Soo as it turns out when I first settled I was isolated in the lower half of the world, since then I have had some friends join me, so I felt it was about time I do two things,
1) Show my claim in pictorial form
and
2) Show what I have done thus far

Where an I, the bottom of hte world!!! Thats me in the black Square
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...k/WhereamI.png
and what do I want as Duckland
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...duck/Claim.png
just a small chunk of the world!!!!

The Map of what is done thus far
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...duck/MAp-2.png
Beneath the Barn is a slime Spawner, an entrance to an Abandoned mine, my tree farm.
Beneath the Mobtrap is a mainteance tunnel (currently the mob trap is a pit trap, soon to be a pit XP farm) as well as a second entrance ot he abandoned mine and a Zombie Spawner
Beneath the Saw Mill is entry to an Abandoned mine and of course under the ocean where I havested vast quantities of sand.

All 3 Abandoned mines I believe are part of the one system and link eventually to the ravine... which shall have a surface access made eventually.
So what have I been upto,
First I started with a nice manor house, this main buildign wil lbe a grand entry hall and a second level with a nice woolen floor that is also decrotive from beneath

So the next part is the Mob Trap, it's a big Block Buildign with lava, nothing great, however inside is a new design that works rather well
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_214524.png

Looking from atop the mob trap (most likely to be the treasure room or something else To be decided) we can see the main hall and the barn
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_214608.png
and the Abandoned Saw Mill and Sand Mine Access (the one Building)
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_214549.png

You can see the "pens" (animal farm) and some of the Mob Trap in these pic's

Inside hte Pens is the latest in luxury accomodation for the many sheep, and one Cow

http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_214053.png

The Saw Mill is an ancient structure from when we used to have Tree's on this open plain
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_213932.png

But Sincethen it has been retrofitted with a Lava Drill to acces the deepest parts of the earth
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_213938.png
(Fenced off for WH&S reasons)

and the walk down
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_213946.png

and out in the middle of hte ocean of my place is a small but spectracular ravine I have nicknamed MORDOR why? it has about the same amount of lava as the nether I swear it

The Bloopers

My initial thought for a floor for the second level came from Splat having fun, he planced a brown mushroom and made it huge, this made an interesting floor which I will pursure with a furture project, but after some annoying teething issues
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-05_212339.png
Mainly of hte 9 mushrooms only 2 grew to hte same height and I got annoyed with having to use a piston to correct the height, I swapped the pattern out for wool (thanks goes to Manzza for helping rangle the sheep).

http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-05_223526.png
So thats my build thus far, planned wil lbe a bigger structure to the side, an airport on the mountains behind (air ship, designs would be appreciated for idea's) a nicecourt yard between the current buildings, finish main hous with 2 towers, and a dock somewhere, only minor stuff oh and a whopper of a nether temple!!!

The Nether Portal Room,
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_224532.png

and the current front entrance, nothing flash yet

The Nether portal

So when you create your own portal, What do you do if your portal is in the middle of a lava lake...use loads of glass

http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-28_195052.png

http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-28_195055.png

There is a nether temple not too far away, well bloody miles but I will eventually make this path link to it
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/u...-28_195100.png

the Tree Farms (3 of these, Birch, Pine, Jungle - each made of the wood of the tree that they house, small sections of forest were destroyed in the making of these)

Very nice. You obviously didn't get advice from Bazz on the engine design for your airship :p
