Did the Foundry ever get built?

 

The foundry was started with help from tuna but haven't seen anyone else do any work on it. I have left signs pointing to where it is so people know where to go.
Will have a proper post tomorrow to get stuff rolling.

In a few hours I'll be off to Heathrow Airport, so I better leave some stuff to be done while I'm away :P

 

First, the Foundry!

There's a shell there and nothing else. Come on people! There is a design in the Test Build world for the inside which is a good base to start with :) It really needs to get finished so we can move on to other things. I have left signs leading the way to it in case anyone doesn't know where it is.

 

Second, ideas for things to fill in the gap behind the coffee shop and something to go next to the boat race start. Them places are looking a bit bare now and have been like that for way too long. I suppose a few trees could be planted behind the coffee shop and the ground bonemeal'd just to fill the gap but that still leaves the other area. I will leave that up to you to decide! :)

 

I think that would keep you busy for a couple of weeks. If I do find wifi anywhere, which is highly unlikely, I will check in on the forums to see if there has been any progress :)

For the foundry, I'll likely have to rework the kiln to use redstone blocks instead of lava since the chiseled brick in the design will most likely have to be replaced by oak logs because it is an extremely rare block and we don't want the logs catching fire.

Have made some changes to the roof to let more light into the foundry and will likely add an extension onto the front as the front of the building looks a bit bare at the moment.

 

Edit: What do you think of the idea of maybe replacing part of the upper roof with smoke stacks?

I got some automated furnace arrays completed, but i should probably re-do them and hide the redstone/railway behind it, i left it running to smelt some iron ore that i found in the warehouse

The Foundry is now finally complete. Thanks to everyone who has helped, even if it was only a small bit :P



I was thinking of throwing a mini opening party, which will include two cakes, a single firework, and some buckets of milk.

Before we start any other new projects I feel like we need a revamp of a few things in the town already, to keep things fresh.

 

1. Revamp of the tree farm. The tree farm looks a bit messy to me and could look alot better. Moving the tree farm deeper and having a design on the walls is a couple of things. This will be the first thing to do.

 

2. I feel like the barn is out of place now and feel like its run its course. I had an idea of having a farm with a chicken coop, pig sty etc. We will have the extra space that is around the barn to use too.

 

3.A refurb of the park at the far corner of the town as well as adding a couple stands along the boat race course.

 

 

Tell me what you think of number 2 and 3 and what ideas you think you might have :)

Onto the next project for Farefall!

The next thing on the list was the animal farms. Now as well as redoing the animal farms, I wanted to redo the area around the other farm entrances aswell. So this whole area:

I think it looks a bit too messy and fancy a change anyway. We can get rid of the cobble generator as it is never used.

See what you can come up with for the area and post here :)

Still no ideas? Not even replies! :(
I've gone ahead and done some tidying up of the area, removing the cobble generator and making it natural again. Have also lowered the path by one block which looks a lot better.

Still haven't have any idea's for the farm though! An approximate area for it is 28x24 blocks with other small areas around the edge. Like I said, a chicken coop/pig sty/stables would be nice.

 

Come on people, it's an empty area now that needs filling :(

I have now gone ahead and built the new animal farms as was getting fed up of seeing it as an empty area. All I'm waiting for now is Podzol for the pig pen floor :)

We now also have the addition of 3 stables.

Hello fellow Farefallers!

 

I know I haven't posted on the Farefall page before even though I live there and I am somewhat ashamed by that. I was wondering if there was anything build-wise in this fine town that I could sink my teeth into? I have an idea for an updated animal farm and I'd quite like to put some street lighting in. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Hehe the animal farm was recently re done back in October/November. Ryan asked for help but got no one helping so he did it himself. Maybe you'd like to tell us what you think we can change on it? I'm sure ryan would appreciate it. Better late then never!

 

As for other stuff, did you gave anything in mind? And what sort if street lighting were you thinking?

 

Sorry Ryan I'm not taking over. :P

 

Edit: always worth checking a few pages back in long topics like this. :)

Hi Folks!

 

Well I personally think the farm should be updated because after travelling to the other town's farms they appear to be a selling point for the town. The food and tree farm is an amazing underground experience that does Farefall proud but the animal farm isn't even on the board in the greetings building. There's no pride in it. I do have several ideas that include more stone brick and less oak wood (that's a Maplehold staple) and I would be happy to share them with the Farefall community but I really don't want to step on Ryanfenton's toes as he was the one that built it in the first place.

 

As for the street lighting I have no ideas other than thinking it would be a good one. I know there's torches in the common areas but there's nothing in the residential streets. I would be more than happy to add them if people are OK with street lights outside their homes.

 

Fellow Farefallers please let me know what you think. I loved building my house there and I want to be part of making Farefall look and feel like an amazing place to live.
