Her are some of the earliest pictures taken from the work site. Started to build the castle from the south western corner on a promising location with intersection of two mountains. Materials are there very near the site.
I built the corner couple of days to give me some shelter from the wandering skeletons and zombies. And then sarted to do the western outer ring wall. Which is long – the midsection is over 130 blocks away from the door to the right. Similar wall would cut through the two mountains.
And then things started to go wrong. I had started from a high ground position, and ended up with a wall too high from the intended water level. Note how high the wooden walkway is from the river. Stupid me! The structure was 5 blocks too high. I needed to redo everything.
After I had lowered the midsection of the western wall, and started to redo the corner. Visual stimulations on my visual nerves got me: the Castle is so big that it will cross several habitat environments, as the northern part of castle is going to be in the Desert! That yellowish stuff in the horizon.
Also I mined through the mountain, and to my horror found out, that there where should be a plot for Castle’s main entrance, was only water – a sea. Why I hadn’t checked that there is no damn sea behind the mountain!
