How long have you been a member of this project?: I have been a member of the project since early September.
How old are you? 17
Where are you from?: New Zealand
**Why do you want to help with this project?**I enjoy building in minecraft, and have been playing it for a long time. I have always enjoyed playing on other minecraft servers, but I have always wanted to contribute to a server, without having to pay. I also really enjoy Tolkien’s books involving Middle Earth, etc.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?: I have read The Hobbit, all three Lord of The Rings books, and listened to the Silmarilion on youtube.
Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with? I enjoy doing anything dwarven e.g Erebor, The Iron Mountains and I also like building orc or goblin related builds, e.g Mordor. But I am quite bad at interior design.
Other relevant skills: Hand-made terra forming, world painting, musicain
MIthlond is a very blue place, being by the sea. Also I saw some houses with blue glass. If you don’t like it, I can change it to clear or something along those lines.
Your house is better than before, but still pretty far off our standards. I’d suggest finding a house in Mithlond and copying it block by block to get a feel for how we build things, then coming up with a unique design of your own based on what you learned.
IK there is a guide built somewhere around Mithlond. If u ask, someone may be able to show u that.
Umm… I’m doing a Harland house because someone said to me that there is no point in doing a Mithlond house, because most of the exteriors are done.
Ummm… could I have a reply please?
You certainly may; I think your interiors show that you clearly have some potential, and your exterior isn’ t bad in itself either. But for it to quality as a Harlond house, in addition to being a bit lower than the required minimum standard, you’ d need to change some things around. I would start by making it so that floors are at least 4 blocks tall, so they feel less cramped. For the exterior I’ d take a good look at the roof shape of the houses you see in Harlond, and also take note of the overhang on the facade sides that’ s nearly always just 1, and rarely 2 or more blocks wide. You do have a good grasp of which block palette to use, so that’ s good. The same goes for your use of plants, you have not overdone it, which is agood thing. In conclusion, I would try yet again to make a Harlond house, using Kemce’ s guide for it. It’ s not a problem if you copy elements from it, as long as you put them on your own version of a Harlond House.You could take a vacant outline of a house from Harlond and build it on the plots. If it wouldn’ t stand out from the other houses currently already in Harlond then you’ d get accepted straight away. Good luck
Have edited it now, hopefully it is up to the standard.
1 thing right off the bat. As far as realism is concerned you should line any tile/shingle roofs with wood on the interior. Tiles have to be laid on something
Except for the two wide rooftop I like the exterior
Right, I’ve changed both of those things, the 2 wide roof and the lining of the roof with wood.
Sorry but your builds are still not up to our standard, biggest problem atm is your interiors. They lack detail and doesn’t feel very realistic . Please try again after spending some more time looking around, there is plenty of houses with good interiors in Harlond. I am going to reject this application for now.
