    Hey, I have been a member of staff for about 3 months now and have also been added to the Parkour build team after a massive contribution I made to that but for a while now I have wanted to become a builder. I have a lot of free time and I am very active on CCG. I have been working on these plot for the 2 weeks or so and I like how they ended up looking.

    The plot ID's for the screen shots are:
    706;712
    706;711
    705;712
    Obviously looks better in game as well as you can actually see every detail that i couldnt quite get with screenshots :p

    I really like it. There are however, some odd things here and there, the first one lacks terrain, and some detail on thee other plots.
    Besides that, I luv it. I like the detail and the creativity. Gud job Cubs :]

    I have to admit cubs it's a good application. Although I feel like certain things have been rushed. There is a lot of potential.

    I will just give you a review of all 3 plots, in different sections so it's easier to understand. (I am very particular, and you most likely know this)

    Medieval Plot
    There is a nice variation of custom trees, which look pretty good. The houses are well built, I feel like it needs more height, it's a good plot, but it just lacks that extra bit of creativity and individuality. That one particular build on the plot, that will make you say wow, and keep looking at it. Just a nice overall village though. The terrarforming is nice and natural. The sloping of the terrain down to create the ravine, is a different way of doing it. I personally prefer it to be much deeper, and the top to have an overhang, with a complex mining system down below. Overall it's a good plot.

    Futuristic Plot
    There is alot of potential for this plot. The actual mining lasers are pretty awesome and looking at the organics of it, is quite impressive. Although the rest of the plot doesn't make any sense. You have these two huge destructive lasers, and they make these smallish holes in comparison. Somehow all the trees have caught fire, however you still have this nice lush terrain of grass? The terrain should look desolated and barren. Like an atomic bomb has just hit it. You could of created ruins to paint the picture of a true alien invasion. You make the terrain more of a barren wasteland, and perhaps have grass and trees that haven't caught fire on the edge of the plot, as if it has been untouched from the invasion. It's just too unfinished, the lasers do look pretty awesome though.

    Train station Plot
    I love the inside of it! Although it's a weird mix of modern trains and a traditional station, still looks pretty good and show's you don't have make a complicated detail/pattern, just to make something look pretty amazing. Then the outside is just the opposite. The sheer amount of detail and patterns is too much in my opinion, it does look pretty cool nonetheless, just go easier and don't overdetail things. Also the outside has a strange fantasy theme to it, and I wouldn't really know what theme this train station is, when I go inside after seeing what the outside looks like. The side of the exterior is a bit repetitive, however I can see you have tried to mix it up and try and make it more active. The inside of it, is really nice though.

    Overall
    You are a pretty good builder cubs, and I know you told me you only really started to try and build recently, you just need to practise more, practice, practice is key. Experimenting with different themes, block types to see if it goes with that particular build is key. In most cases, block palette is the most important skill you can have when building. Honestly I don't think you are quite there yet, but I'd prefer you to build parkour adventure maps, as I think you'd do very well at that, as you seem quite diverse. Also the stress of three ranks is too much. Mod, parkour and builder is just ridiculous. It's impossible to maintain a great standard in all. So my advice is to start making parkour adventure maps, as they seem to be very popular on parkour server atm. And this will help you practice more at building and you will get better over time and won't repeat the same 'building mistakes'.

    I know I am a very picky, but I'd rather say all the things that you need to work on to help you improve. But anyway, I think you need more time in my opinion and I'd prefer you to make parkour adventure maps.

    Hey, this thread has been dead for a few months now after I took a extensive break from building. As you may have already noticed things are no way near the same. Whatever chance I had then has now decreased by 1,000,000,000% due to my own fullish mistakes. I'm a active member on the server still but have a lot more free time now then I did then especially now that my exams are over. I hope that you will at least look this through before making your decision but I know that its practically certain to be a no. But anyway enough of me blabbering here we go.

    Medieval Plot
    Before:
    2015-02-19_20.58.32.png
    After:
    2015-06-08_22.38.12.png
    Things that have changed;
    Interior, detailed terraforming, Mines, Windmill, Finer detail
    The plot id is 706;711 I hope you have a look around and enjoy what has changed. Yet I still havent found that WOW factor that Luke asked for :/


    Futuristic Plot
    Before
    2015-02-19_20.36.11.png
    After:
    2015-06-08_22.43.17.png
    Things that have changed;
    Terra forming, Depth of holes dug by mines, changed so only one ore is in holes, barren terrain in a radius of where the drills drain terrain.
    The plot id is 706;712 I hope you have a look around and enjoy what has changed.


    Train Station
    Before 2015-02-19_21.00.26.png 2015-02-19_21.00.41.png
    After:
    2015-05-31_15.51.54.png 2015-05-31_15.52.07.png
    Things that have changed;
    Spamming of stairs removed, slight variation on sides of building
    The plot id is 705;712 I hope you have a look around and enjoy what has changed even though this build is basically the same as it was.


    W.I.P
    I have two build I am currently working on that I thought I might share with you to acquire your opinions
    Modern: Plot id- 705;713 2015-05-31_15.52.42.png
    Cathedral: Plot id- 703;711
    2015-05-31_15.53.08.png
