Inspiration everywhere

Post  Fischius on Tue Apr 12, 2011 3:48 pm

I thought this was funny: I had to explain what Minecraft was to my sister last weekend when we visited the Philadelphia museum of art. I must have said "I must Minecraft it!" a dozen times. There was one painting in the European 1300-1500s section of people drawing water from some kind of temple or aqueduct area with these huge walls and bridges on the shores of a river that I wanted to copy but I failed to remember the name of the work or artist. Does anyone have any sources that they recommend for inspiration on what to build? I have a ton of ideas, but I am still looking for one that I completely love.

yea Era I dunno, though I am pretty sure there are at least 1 or 2 other northeasterners. My hometown is a suburb of Philly but I now live and work in Wilmington Delaware.

In the spirit of this post, I present today's Pop Sci RSS feed. Some pretty sweet designs there. Problem is - curvilinear + minecraft are not a good mix.

Some really cool stuff there tbt, and some of it is definitely doable and original for a Minecraft build.

Yeah #6 piqued my curiosity...grass above buildings...like a green roof. I think we need to "green" up our server and scrub our CO2 guys. I can sell carbon credits to those who need them...in the form of DIAMONDS Twisted Evil

The red roofed building in the second vid is perfect for the 2nd gate house leading to the castle in my area!
Not that the castle exists yet. Or even a spot for it. Just in dream stage for now Smile

I just build the crazy images inside my head.

It helps me from listening to the voices.
