When things that are too small to provide it's own post, I do this. Here are four sweet builds I've found that are pretty awesome in their own way. All of these are made in Survival. Hacked or not, they deserve recognition. Floating islands, towns, biodomes, bridges, vehicles... anything and everything can be built in Minecraft! But, these are well-made. So, give these builders a round of hand.
Miigga from Facepunch shows off what he has build on a Survival server. Needless to say, although it's not big, it's pretty creative.
Thingy I made
On Hangover's server
Umlüx has a SimCity-nostalgia moment and he and his girlfriend create the SimCity 200 Launch Arcology. I think this looks awesome. I mean, I can't find any other words but just to stare at it.
build on my private smp with a little help from my gilrfriend
IbramSkyheart creates a really big build. A big freaking airplane, I mean. I have never seen a size of an airplane this bug until now. Just looking at the pictures below, you will no doubt agree with me.
My new project:
The dimensions are currently at 160x172x33. I dunno if I'll do any more to the outside - I kinda like the sleek 50's sci-fi look it has. The inside is completely hollow; I'll be making a base out of it eventually.
Now I gotta hollow out an underground hangar big enough to house it . And make some kind of undercarriage... hmm.
Oh, and it's 99% legit. I have a rediculously massive man-made cave where I took all the rock for it >.< (not useful for the hangar, unfortunately). The 1% un-legit part is I built it in a about 6 or 7 different parts on the ground, then used MCEdit to combine them in the air (might also use it to change the type of block used). I didn't originally intend for it to be so massive, but that's what I get for planning it out using Paint.
Just for a few reference pics, here's a Normal and Isometric view from Cartograph:
Southpaw has created an amazing town in Minecraft. That's is the flagship build of Minecraft. Create your own kingdom, wipe it all, and start fresh. But, we don't want to wipe this, it's pretty sweet. The night version of this build really brings out the vivid and intensity of the picture.
Here is my compound ive been building for a couple of months since i bought the game (no cheats)
I discovered a nice tall land mass surrounded by water, so I built a castle on it, with towers and a windmill. There is a stone bridge which leads to a romanesque cathedral i built (to scale). To the right of the castle (where you see the wooden disc and group of trees) is actually a large tree house im working on. The square structure under the caste (right of cathedral) is a mob spawner.
Pretty amazing stuff, huh? Minecraft's amazing creations and freedom is what makes this game so great!
