Here I will be posting screenshots of the new spawn as I make it so you guys can keep track of progress
The theme of the new spawn will be a tropical pirates cove/island with some fantasy aspects and is inspired by some planet minecraft projects I looked at.
Here I made the basic landscape out of sand so therefore hills etc would look more natural then after that I went around the entire island smoothing out any parts that looked strange by hand.
I then began to give the land some texture to see what it would look like. I played around with several different materials.
I then came up with the idea of having a skull on the island seen as though the theme is kind of like a pirates cove/island
I then finished off texturing most of the land there is still some left to do such as small details like paths etc.
Then I started to work on some of the actual buildings for the cove, I had many attempts at creating these trying to make them look right etc however this was the final product for these buildings which I'm quite happy with.
7th February 2018
After creating the huts I started work opposite them working on a cliff and ramp leading up to it I knew there was lots of work to be done when it came to landscaping here.
As you can see here I started to form the land around the stairs giving it an over hang to give it more enclosed feel which is what I was going for...
After creaing the ramp I added more buildings above and a cannon/defense area which was in some castle ruins. I then dropped to the shore and started work on the cliff making a port area and over hang. After all that I added vines to cover up the cliff...
After that I extended the upper area to add another area which ca nbe seen in the middle of the image and another overhang below it, I also started work on the paths around the island...
After doing all that I flipped over to the opposite of the island creating a temple statue which was built into a mountain.
I then finished the statue and the mountain behind it however I was not done there as I feel it lacked structure and looked a bit blank.
I decided to add another castle ruin to behind the temple I had to redesign the mountain strucutre to make the castle fit in, I first built it just outside on the flat world then moved it onto the mountain as I knew it would not fit and terrain changes would have to be made...
I finished creating the terrain around the castle making it fit in perfectly.
In this screenshot alot changed, I added a tower as seen in the background (it looks empty right now as I need to add the trees growing through the tower) I also added a lake/waterfall just in front of the houses.
I then flipped around the other side of the water fall and added another waterfall near the Skull and added some ground texture...
I also moved along the coast and added a cave, bridge and another waterfall...
After that I flipped around again to the other side of the island and added in another lake/waterfall opposite the temple statue and another tower. I also finished detailing the paths and added another path around the left hand side of the cliff... and a underground cave that goes below the path.
This image is some more detailing of the paths and also me changing up the beach adding some dirt, fences and grass.
