    Boy oh boy I should really start posting more stuff on here
    No better time like the present!

    Currently I'm working on kind of a big project, calling it Fantasy Island. I really enjoy building in fantasy styles, and I haven't worked on or finished something big in a very long time. With this current project, I terraformed a massive island, creating the structure with world edit and smoothing the whole thing by hand.

    I have a few ideas for things I'd like to add, of which I'll include a list of some ideas below, but I also think it would be really cool if y'all in the build community wanted to reply with suggestions or ideas of cool things to add to the island!

    Currently the island has a small port/market, a walkway along the cliff, and a lighthouse. However, I'm also planning to add...
    • Big custom trees
    • Cliff-side village (built into the walls)
    • Big ol' mushrooms/flowers
    I would super love to hear peoples creative ideas on other cool things to add to the build, and will be posting updates as I complete them! No guarantees I'll do all of them, but I'll pick as many as possible :smile: Comment any ideas for things you'd like me to add! <3

    Looking alright for a start! The structures could use a bit of work, but its looking good :smile: Possibly try changing the stone bricks to something else that fits more with the wood, such as spruce slabs rather than that gray color. The tree you made looks a little small too but that's a simple fix. Maybe re-color the terrain to have more of a natural progression through the colors of stones, rather than just all of the mixed together. I see a lot of potential in the build though!

    Thanks for these suggestions ^-^ I'm actually a big fan of how the stone bricks compliment the wood, I'm not entirely sure where you refer to as all the structures have spruce planks as the base, so adding spruce slabs would just make most of the builds made out of only spruce :sweat_smile: but I'll probably expand the pallete a bit more as the build progresses.

    I guess the tree isn't the biggest in the world but I don't really see what's wrong with it being small haha, all the trees aren't going to be the same size, clearly I've only added two to the map so far to add some starting foliage, I'd say it's ok if they're small or normal sized, no..? :sweat_smile:

    I agree the terrain can use a little work, but I plan on reworking small portions of the island at a time as I add actual buildings/structures to it. The empty island gives me a good canvas to add on to certain places as I go and come up with new ideas.

    I'd love to hear if you have any creative ideas for buildings or cool locations to add onto the island as well, as that's kind of my goal with this project ^ v ^ thanks again for your feedback!

    Well the trunk of the tree is as thick as the branches, think of how that would look in real life haha. And I don’t mean change all the stone bricks, just the ones in the middle of spruce. Obviously changing all of them would look strange you’re right about that one :joy:. My post above wasn’t meant to be mean at all. Hopefully you took everything as constructive criticism and not me flat out bashing your hard work. It’s a great start so far man!

    Of course! I'm always happy to have constructive criticism haha, I suppose I'm not specifically looking for it with this build, more just trying to get the build community active and participating in something lolol, but really thank you for the tips, and I'll keep that in mind with the trees for sure!

    Certainly haha. Maybe a lookout on a peak somewhere would be cool, something that overlooks the village you were talking about!

    I may be quite late to reply (oops) but it would be cool if you added a cave in one of the mountains and built a dragon (to add to the fantasy aspect) can't wait to see the finished product :grinning:
