Mansion Plans

October 30th, 2011 09:44 am | by Ed |

A while back in my main world I started a pretty big project in building a mansion. I chose a snowy area not too far north of the main base and began clearing land. While I was doing that I collected snowballs to craft into snow blocks which I later used in the construction of the main building.

I had gotten the third floor done and had started on the outside of the place when word started floating around that 1.8 would soon be available. Because of this I stopped work on the mansion to get another project done before 1.8 came out. Since then there's been a lot going on and I've been hopping from one project to another.

Sometime soon I need to get back to the mansion project. The thing that's gonna make it special is that with 1.9 comes changes in terrain generation code. These changes mean, among other things, that the snow country I started building in has become a swamp.

Rather than scrap the project and try to move it to another snow area I'm going to try to adapt it. Perhaps I'll put in a swimming pool fence off part of what used to be a frozen lake around the north side of the house and bring in enough sand to build up something of a decent size beach and go for a resort kinda look. The thing there is how many resorts do you know are located in a swamp? Not many I'm sure.

No matter what there's still several episodes worth of work to do just on the outside of the place. I could then easily spend ten episodes or more getting the inside of three above ground floors and two basement levels done.
