    Hello,
    My name is bigu7 and I would like to become a Builder.
    I would like to become a Builder to increase the amount of diversity and amount of maps within certain games on the Games Server. To (hopefully) prove myself worthy I have created an Oriental landscape on a plot on the Creative Server. I am experienced with Voxel Sniper and WorldEdit. I am also experienced with Terra forming and landscaping. I have provided some pictures of my plot on the Creative server. It is at -86;-96. I hope it is enough!

    Everything is the main feature.

    Builders have to know how to build most of the themes/builds.

    I know how to build most themes. I went with this theme because I noticed (looking around) that LOTS of people have built just buildings and towns (Most of them, medieval). I went with an Oriental landscape as no one has really made landscapes and used that theme. I wanted to show that I can build non-traditional/original themes not some medieval village.

    I like that its original and a lot of effort went into the landscaping. Just add more detail to the buildings and you'll be well on your way. And use a range of blocks to create effect.

    Mmh, coming from one of the best terraformers on the server, (not THE best but yeah) I'd like to say add a bit more detail to the 2-3 block high blocks surrounding the pond. Maybe cut it out a bit it make it look more realistic. Also the stone/dirt towers in the background.. they stand out a bit too much, maybe make it a bit more, well, not sticking up so much.

    Also, the interior tunnel needs a bit more design, maybe a bit more blocks and add some old feeling to it, if it's oriental.

    Also, try to make the trees with your own design, for example, the trees at 9999;9999 have a specific design, try not to use too much bone meal trees. Creativity is something that is necessary

    Plot ID is -89;-96

    Okay am going to be really specific and critical, so yeah.. The actual terrarforming is nice, considering it is all done by hand, however in order to make something look natural, it shouldn't be neat, however the surrounding area by the river is all at the same height, and you can tell its been hand made. Terrarforming should look random, in my opinion. However the two cliffs at that back are well made. Although, you have only used the defualt minecraft trees and bonemeal, to make the rest of the plot. When I was looking around, you had used pretty much, every flower!!! stick to only using 3 flowers max, so it doesn't look to ridiculous, and change from ferns and use long grass. Make custom trees, I cannot stress this enough, trees are boring if there just defualt, and anyone can make them. The actual build is pretty simplistic, to be honest, it doesn't look very asian/oriental, the theme you were going for. Asian are renowned for there use of the colours red and gold, however when I checked in game, you had emerald blocks stuck on the end of the roof, and they looked very out of place. Asian theme, tend to use blossom trees, using the pink wool, would be recommended. To highlight the theme you are creating. Me and Musemat (Head Builder) are currently working on a Asian theme, and this is the standard and what we look for. This is just a snippet of the actual build (I can't really release pics of the full build yet). Do Not Copy This!!!!

    I agree about not using the standard 'bonemeal and sapling" but I just think that the pink wool "Blossom" trees look cheesy. In my opinion the only way you can replicate blossom trees is with a texture pack.
