A changing world demands action. When the enemy mounts it's war, will you be ready? A group of strong willed dwarves has answered "Yes!" and begun construction of a grand new keep to stand firm against the threat of those who battle in the coliseum of doom. It is a castle of wonders!


A place where hidden gardens bring light to a troubled people.


A place where privileged nobles can enjoy a more civilized way of life.


A place where balconies offer views of greatness!


Spanning the lake, a grand bridge leads to the main gate of the keep, where guard towers stand in defiance of the enemy.


Built atop the ruins of an old kingdom, the castle stands tall with glistening white lime stone walls. Though, it is rumored that there are still vestiges of the old kingdom buried deep under the new keep.


Be careful not to fall in the cesspool.


Notes: This is a work in progress, to be sure, but I have enough done that it should be of interest to those looking for something to explore. The castle stands at the far edge of the map and is about half done. In time, a town and verdant rural crops will surround it, the townsfolk sitting in the shadow of a grand and evil coliseum on the mountain. A Grecian temple will be built to the west of the keep, as well.

As I intend this map to be a model for death match style gaming, I am designing it with a good guys vs. bad guys mind set. The good guys' castle sits mainly above ground and will have plenty of winding passages throughout it and the town while the bad guys' realm will be primarily subterranean. I have one dark tower built in a remote corner of the map as a starting point for that.

I hope you enjoy wandering through this map and that this inspires you all to build your own little worlds!

Everyone makes better maps then me XD

I have a suggestion for water. Have the outside of the map be the only source of water. So you can only get more water by taking from the sea. Then you could program the water to, instead of creating water in the empty spaces next to it, make it move to a spot where water isn't already and doesn't have a full solid block (this way, the water will go over the plants and other partial blocks, but won't go over blocks.) You can also make it go up if there is no where else to go (this will require extra checking because you don't want the sea to continuously rise :/ ). Creating a block in water will cause the water to be displaced/destroyed. Not sure how that'd work.

Just an idea, not sure if it's feasible or not. And you've probably already thought of that so yea. >_>;

I started working on a new castle earlier today. No screenshots because it isn't complete yet.

I'm going to do my very best to not ever break level file compatibility. Good thing I started the whole file format off with a version id, eh? Wink

However, I won't make any firm promises until beta.

The new water flow is great Smiley But with that water becomes more dangerous. It's already possible to dry up rooms by filling them with some blocks, thus replacing the water, and then removing those again. But that's time consuming and when removing those blocks you might damage what you've built before.
I thought about some kind of "sponge"-block which could at least reduce the time the draining takes. It would work like any other block, you just fill the water with it, and it takes up one water tile block per block. The only difference would be that when you remove any one of those sponge blocks, all sponge blocks connected to it would be removed as well, automatically.
I guess this could be made rather easily and would make accidental water floods (and building underwater Grin) a bit less painful.

My level

It has a boat, a town, a forest of giant mushrooms, a castle, and a dug-out cave, a huge ocean, and a cool natural cavern near the boat under the water.

The boat is sail-less, and I tried to make a sail, but couldn't, so if someone would do that for me and send me a link to the level after they're done, that'd be great.

Also, making that level made me had an idea for another multiplayer competitive mode. "Gauntlet" mode. Where you have two teams, and there's a big map with a few set landmarks, and team 1 has to go from one place to another, through the landmarks, and team 2 spawns at those landmarks as team 1 goes through them. So, team 2 would defend against team 1 in a castle, then a city, then in a valley, and stuff like that.

EDIT: Arg stupid non-HTML forums.

The new footage on your blog looks very very nice, I like the new flow of the water, seemingly faster and more efficient than the old one.

Hmmm, sponge! Not bad! Should be fun to draw that texture as well, hehe.

I'm considering putting in a short grace period before water starts flooding. Or perhaps it's part of the fun to suddenly get flooded from a single false move. It's memorable for sure

Here's my castle I've been working on for the past few days.

That wall took FOREVER to build. Still a work in progress really, but at least now it's got some to show for it.

That looked like a lot of work Amadeous.

I have a WIP going on myself. It first started out with a bridge crossing the large center lake, but as you can see I have shifted my attention to the castle at the bridge now. Though it is hard to see in the picture, the bridge's pillars go all the way down to the lake floor.



I finished the front part and the courtyard/garden and am currently working on the main building. Everything after the garden is very WIP:

Regarding ideas for the engine:

- Sponge blocks were mentioned earlier: I'd actually would love to have "pump" blocks, but that would require being able to turn blocks I guess (to etermine pumping direction). It would just be great if you could more quickly 'reclaim' land.

- I'd love to see slanted blocks (i.e. half 'triangular' blocks) to be able to make roofs, slanted roads (so you don't need to jump to go one square up all the time), more stylish windows and doors etc. Only one slanted block would be able to occupy a cell, just like any other block. This would, however, also require turning of blocks, not to mention it would double the amount of block types.

- A 'ladder' block would be great to.

- If water is present on one side

Thank you for the kind compliments! The level is changing constantly so check back!

Anyway, heya Notch. I remember reading that you had a number of cubes available to you and thought I'd throw in a suggestion for special items for decoration. Like, a lot of us gravitate towards castles and such so a block or two that look like a weapon rack or chairs would be great! You could make skulls or a pile of bones to go for underground areas, stuff like that.

Great job as it is, by the way!

Hey, who likes big ass pyramids? Why is a pyramid right on top of a river? It's a video game silly, it doesn't need to make sense.
