Big Build Project #1 - University of YAMS [OFFICIAL]

Recommended Posts

Version 2 of a suggested layout, sorry about the overlap on some of the boxes, I will improve next time round!

[url="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/835/darrenslayout.png/"][img]http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/5921/darrenslayout.th.png[/img][/url]

Here's the colour coding:

White - Adminstation
Green - Student Housing & Dining
Blue - Bookshop
Red - Health Centre
Purple - Sports Track and field (football/rugby/baseball pitches/fields)
Orange - Colleges
Yellow - Field for agriculture :)
Grey - Paths
Cyan blue - Railway

*NOTE* This layout is not final and may change! :)

How much does it cost to get in the collage? 100 diamonds? Better take a loan from EliteTyler. :D

I agree that we should have a cost. Maybe like a 1-3 diamond fee to take a course. This way, the YAMS warehouse would be able to restock on diamonds for future use. Maybe make some classes more expensive than others. For example, Redstone could cost 3 diamonds while Agricultural classes would cost 1 diamond.

Not sure if I really agree on the charging of diamonds, at least to enter the place and get knowlege from the college, I beileve it should be free as it will benefit all people, especially sandboxers! :) However if it was the certificate/test/quiz you were paying for thats a different matter. :)

But anyway.... first thing is to starty clearing land on the park/scenic route area... see the picture attached, the idea is that there will be a gravel path that winds through the park from one corner of spawn to the other corner near the uni entrance.

Theres some chests near the uni entrance with stuff in, all dug/mined stuff while here should be used for the university project.

For the park, I think we should have a small hill about 4 blocks high with water coming down from it into a pond. Also, I think we could have a petting zoo perhaps.

Additionally, we could have some sort of vending cart. Finally, I think we should have some umbrellas over the tables to keep the rain off. :) Edited by d8g4cnd24_h7

I really like your idea, Darren. I think we should have a river that runs from the lake on the hill, but doesnt go into the other lake. Instead, it should go into the ravine, in my opinion.

Im already dealing with the ravine and theres already water down there i did! I put a lot of work into that ravine this afternoon, I pretty much had to remake the whole ravine, shifting it over... and still not done, I have more plans! ;)

I really liked the bridge in the back; very elegent. :) For the grand entrance, are we trying to make it similar to the cottage and tower on the hill (midevil style) or just an entrance that looks grand? If we are going with the midevil style theme, I think your idea is great Darren, but if we are doing just any entrance (no theme to it), I prefer Steer's a little more. I like how her design has only a few materials, so my eye doesn't go everywhere, it is centered on the middle with the iron bars and lapis block. Although, I really like your too, darren. If i had to change both designs just the slightest bit, I would take away the oak wood planks the hang down from yours, darren, and for steer, i would add another material, not make it a main material, but use it for details.
I would build a design, but I don't have enough materials yet to make it.
I still like both the designs! :) (very hard to make one better)

Right so we have various wall designs now, im very pleased too see people having a go, I merely placed the first one to get peopls creativty going and its worked! :) If you would like to try and design a wall/gate you can still build more just build them over to the side where theres more space! :)

Also dont forget to check out the bridge at the end of the university pathway, I hope what I made is ok for now, until we come up with something even better! :P Latter on when universirty is near ready thought this could be a boating race area.

Thanks to steer for helping me divert the river.

Ok I did ask madrad a few days back now to post on here a screenshot he took of a design he was working on for the administration/enrolment building, so you lot could say what you wanted changed/added etc (I said no clay floors :P), however he hasn’t done this... tut tut tut!

So does anyone else have any designs to share (minecraft or real life)? Anything really so we can start building so we can have a little break from flattening!

For the time being I'll leave you with some images (not my designs) of a redbrick structure to help you get in the creative thought.
