This is it. My last shot at a proper shot for a city on VeteranCraft. Sparta was too cruddy and wasted too much, Mithundril was the only good one, and Vivol bit the dust after a month or two in service for it enormous size. I've probably wasted a bit much on each of my towns. I have thought things out since I went on my break, and coming back, I wanted to settle in my favorite biome of all: The Snowy Plains. So, here is my plans:

 

A Word on the Former Kingdoms:

  • Sparta: What else can I say? The worst job (IMO) I've done on Minecraft. Poor planning and poor execution led to failures and eventually a big crappy pile of flat land and the scrapping of the project. While my memories of Sparta were from my early times on VC, I can't get over the layout of Sparta.
  • Mithundril: This is my second-favorite, and was perfect except for the fact Arda came out
  • Vivol: Too big and a hassle that was just not for me. 
  • Drumbeldon: Ever think of the villages in Fantasy movies? When the happy flute and drum music is playing and children are playing in the streets with a market that is bustling with people. Just imagine that, but with a snowy touch and snow everywhere. Also imagine a PvP Arena, a Spleen Arena, and a ArrowBlast arena right next to and underneath it.

Drumbeldon: Will be the primary focus of Season 1 and 2 of Arda Rising, soon I will direct my attention to a full-militarized base in the Nether! I have a couple of things planned, but I'm not going to reveal it here. I will show it overtime in my Arda Rising videos!

 

More info to come!

Drumbeldon Update #1


Current Work: Work has been in steady pace, however, I stuck between three worlds (Aether II, Lets Play world, and Arda). I've decided to expand Drumbledon and keep it my main focus of Arda Rising. However, with my new computer, I'm installing all my faith into Drumbledon. It will be large, however, I will not throw all my bloody resources into it and try to consume more than I can handle. I reached out to the river West of Drumbledon and I plan to claim the mountain range to the South. After that, it's over. It's for fun and building, not a land expansion operation. I'm a little uneasy about the location since it's just due South of New Glacia, however, if land negotians occur, I'm more than happy to cut out the Northeast mountain pass that is perfect for a road system leading into the unknown Snowy biomes. 

 

Current Plans:

  • Roads: Roads are essential in my plan to expand the Drumbeldon region. I was unsuccessful with completing a proper road system in Vivol and it really showed as I was always trying to find my way around without getting lost. The roads in Drumbeldon are planned out in design, I just have to create the start point. 
  • Drumbeldon Harbor: I've noticed the snowy region is just RIPE for a nice, river system (all natural of course) but maybe to where it's possible for boats to navigate its waters. I have a nice little building that will be the start of the Harbor.
  • Travelers' Inn: For those new and brave lads who are traveling and exploring the Southern Region of Arda. Housing is free, and dispensers and chests will contain food and goodies for their journeys.
Ada Rising: Episode four comes out later today, along with some Survival Games and Lets Play videos. Consider it, a re-first episode ;) !

Enjoy! Pics are on the way!

Drumbeldon Update #2: The Final Claim


Info: Welp, the final areas are claimed. I have two temporary claims off to the East and West of the mega claim. Those house my storage units, which will be destroyed once I move into Drumbeldon fully. In all, the scenery is beautiful and the rivers just top them off. Cutting through the middle of the Kingdom, the rivers add a sense I didn't feel in Vivol. The biomes are completely snowy, and aren't anything like the stone mountains of Vivol. I plan to begin construction later tonight, and I hope to build the first mega-structure later tomorrow.

 

Location: Drumbeldon is located just Southwest of New Glacia and the Southern Compass Portal. Which eliminates the need for a Seafaring ship, but allows enough distance for an airship (towards the Southwestern Market District). I may include two smaller ships in the river to cut the distance between the Northern and Southern borders, which can also lead to a smaller portal ship with another town along the river.

 

Current Plans:

  • Roads: The roads aren't on the maps... yet. I have completed their design in Creative mode, and plan to outline the claim today. They're priority #1. This is a bit different from Vivol's plan, as I created the roads and set them off from one point.
  • Drumbeldon Harbor: This is one I think will be one for the books. I have only 2/4 done in Creative, and it took me a while too. The exterior is just gorgeous, and the interior does need some work. However, it should start construction tomorrow.
  • Traveler's Inn: This is for those that want to stop on by, the Inn is the second building to go up after the Harbor. The Inn is comprised of an entire secluded village, away from most of the action in Drumbeldon.
  • Njo Sparun Arena: This is the third project I have in Drumbeldon, and is the location of the first major Spleef and PvP arena in Arda. Once completed, I will hold the first event in Arda.
I will edit the pictures onto this post later tonight.
