Undertaking New Project; MountaiN Building.

    Two new projects, actually. I was inspired by the Halloween submission on ATL. The player used the new stalagmites to craft a very convincing mountain, I'd like to manage a peak of my own along with a small adjuring palisade rubble tower extending above the 4th floor. At my other house I'd like to create a small grotto [roughly 3x4] within the structure comprised of rocks and crystals floating above a central structure.

    Any hints/tips for using rubble/gozas to build above the 4th floor or for mountain/peak emulation or building?

    ICQ me this evening and I can walk you through the steps for building higher with Goza's. Not sure if you have seen the newest house or not - but it technically uses what would be the 5th, 6th, and 9th floors of the house. The 9th floor creates the illusion that a swamp with a drawbridge over it connects the house to the house behind (with house teleporters, it is even functional).

    It can be a painstaking in the detail to create this type of stuff - but it is really not that hard.

    I've been toying with the idea of creating a hill or mountain myself. When you're finished post some screenshots and maybe some advice. Thanks!

    WANT!


    I'm slowly reactivating my 6 accounts in order to build a "resort" near Cove which will be done up seasonally - with landscaping and the whole shibangie. I'd love to see what other people do!

    I told you tet i needed you to get on and look at stuff and you never did I only procrastinate when i dont have constant feedback that was shins problem too... i warned him that he had to keep on me about stuff... he got lazy... the real trick is to just give me a house and say here happy bday and let me play and then later say oh... just kidding i want it back
    haha =)

    I was only giving you a hard time.... It was in ZERO reference to my house... That was my fault that i stopped my account for a month... little did i know my house would fall in a month of inactivity... thought it was 3 months.. but thats neither here nor there....

    And I told Shinobi 100 times to get on your or you wouldnt get things done... he chose not to lol...

    I warned him not to pickup help front the parking lot of home depot... :eyes:
