Extra (Anything else you want to mention):
For builds that are based off of real life buildings, I include real pictures of the buildings as references.
Allow me explain a few things about some builds:
Brandenburg Gate: This was my first build since becoming Recruit. It was a decently detailed build, and it was one of two builds that were in my Builder app. However, I added a large amount of detail to it since then. For example: The side buildings are no longer just simple boxes, and the pillars now have arches between them. While the build looks somewhat different to the real Brandenburg Gate due to those changes, I believe it was a good decision to add extra details to it.
Flatiron Building: This was my second build since becoming Recruit, and it was the second of two builds in my Builder app. There are 18 floors total, and all of them are furnished. It was; however, becoming extremely difficult to mix things up for every floor. I will admit that. The building is also different from standard buildings due to its triangular shape, which I included in the build. I changed this build slightly by making the hypotenuse side of the top of the building straight, as opposed to its sloppy look from before.
Classic Spleef Arena & Spleef the Flag Arena: I know Spleef arenas are done quite a bit; however, these arenas were submitted to the Spleef Arena Contest held by Your_Mine and will be used when a new world is made for Spleef in general. Also, if you don't know what Spleef the Flag is, here's a link to the Spleef Arena Contest, which explains everything about it. http://www.opticraft.net/index.php/topic,9629.0.html
El Capricho: The build used to have a plain red wall in the back. I cannot find the photo of the model of El Capricho that showed the plain red wall, nor can I find any other good pictures of that wall, but it is there. However, I noticed that in one picture, one can see a little bit of a tent where the wall is. But rather than building a simple tent, I built a greenhouse of sorts, and built small gardens and two trees under it. While there is no such thing there, I added it to make the build have better quality; as opposed to an exposed plain red wall. Also, about the interior, the majority of it is original by me. There are photos, but I only used the wall design and the ceiling design. Other than those things, the interior is all mine. Also, the dragon mural was done without GIMP and is not part of the real El Capricho.
Mr. Saturn and Fierce Deity: These are the smaller of my builds that I have done. I put them in this app though since they both have, imho, good curves to them. I know that's not up to me to decide though.
I have also done pixel art, which I made with GIMP. I did not use MrMonkey91's palette (I didn't know that Monkey had a palette up for download until after I made my own, but I have not used Monkey's palette ever). I made my own palette on GIMP from terrain.png, and I indexed the photo to Minecraft Classic material colors. Because of this, I'm putting the pixel art in the Extras part of this app. The pixel art I've done include:
- Skull Kid from Majora's Mask (Current Builder)
- Death from the Darksiders games (Current Builder)
- Gray Fox from Metal Gear Solid (Current Art)
Here is the link to the pixel art: http://s864.photobucket.com/albums/ab205/Unknown255/Minecraft%20Crafter%20Application/Pixel%20Art/
Also, I don't have any real life, nor 3D, models of any of the builds based on real things, and the only thing I used was pictures for reference.
Thank you for your time.
Edit: Added the Ultimate Chimera.
Jeez, some operators have been on trial for way too long ._.
There are some there from back in January still. Either accept or reject them, but the trial ops page is way too long. Someone *cough* admins *cough* should take more care of this :/
Starry11, on trial since March 29, hasn't been online for over 15 weeks; eDaesung, on trial since May 21, almost 10 weeks.
Even worse, Whatshiywl, on trial since January 11, still active, still not accepted; your_mine, on trial since January 29, also still active but not accepted.
I don't know the policies for accepting/rejecting, but don't keep these people waiting so long...

Not as difficult name as the last one, some of you might actually have known what is was before you clicked it.
The dodecahedron is, as the name already explains (for those that know ancient Greek, or had platonic solids in maths class) any shape consisting of 12 (dodeca) faces (hedron). This case is special because they are all 12 regular pentagons. There are only 5 regular polyhedra that can be constructed by using just one type of regular polygon of which the dodecahedron is in my opinion the most astonishing.
Next step is the a 3D depiction of the 120-cell, which consists of 120 of these dodecahedra, folded in 4D space.
I decided to celebrate my 2000hrs on the server by officially introducing myself on the forums.
Most of you might already have seen me on the server, but I thought it would be nice to make an introduction.
So who am I?
My name is Bart, I'm 20 years old, turning 21 in May. I live in the Netherlands, where I'm currently studying to become a software engineer.
In my free time I enjoy playing minecraft and doing sports. I'm currently training for my black belt Judo which I intend to get in June. I also play badminton and go snowboarding once a while. I enjoy reading and watching movies. My favourite genre is fantasy
Anyway, I rly hope to get to know u better, cus you guys all seem rly cool
I know (although I don't understand why) that most people prefer to play smp above classic, but, and I'm mainly directing myself towards the operators here, keep in mind that we also still have a classic server with guests that require help. Just today I have already been pulling operators back from smp just because there were over 150 guests online on classic and not a single operator to help them. I understand you guys also play for fun, and of course the opticraft smp is new and (as you think) fun but keep in mind that the smp is mostly financed by the donations from classic so far and without motivated ops great builders (still guests) will leave for lack of anti-grief help and promotions.
Posting this in suggestions because I still think you should not feel any pressure by what I say here, just keep it in mind.
I've picked up my old project of the versailles gardens again. This is a screeny of the model I use, plus an outline of the part i'm planning on doing.
This is my actual plan, which will, when I save, automatically be updated, so keep an eye on it
Nothing ridiculously oversized this time, well, maybe a little.
66 colours, totally freaking much compared to what I've done till now. So far, raul's pic was in the lead with about 30.
this might be a smaller pic, but, don't faint, has a total of 116 colours. This being ofcourse totally retarded is something I just can't let pass. The size is actually still quite reasonable, 300x222x3, the other one being much bigger with 590x365x3, which I could possibly cut down to 512, but still...
I have decided to do the smaller one, and marked the outline in Art. I am still worried about the position though, because I now just took the middle, if any admin disagrees with this, or if anyone else wants to do something big at the floor too, just move it to the back. Make sure to copy the ceiling too though, as I will be working on the shadows there.
Hey, for everyone who hasn't seen it yet, I made the statue of liberty, with the help of toxicstriker91 and xoiiku for the inside. It took about 2 days for the pedestal, and another week or so to complete the entire statue. The inside is still a WIP.
Minecraft forums topic: http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1041&t=284129
Added some decorations on the wall
Big progress made with covering the stairs within the statue. They are only blended with the walls below, so you can still look around while climbing.
Still waiting for /copy to finish the patterns. In the meantime we started building a viewing platform at the ceiling, accessible from the second floor.
First floor finished =D
Second floor as it is now :/ still needs a lot of work.
The inside of the statue is almost finished now
A pic of the second floor WIP
Finished second floor =D
Put some paint on the outside
And made lots of progress on the ceiling
The bird is ready to fly off now
and a first try at the surroundings
We decided to give a try at the 11-pointed star, here's the result
Fountains on the first floor

Very laggy, but gives a nice tour of the first floor.
