    Welcome to the Inspiration Thread!
    I, as someone who loves to build [Not necessarily the best at it] , am deciding to make a thread about Building inspiration, cause I find myself not knowing what theme to build on a new plot. This will be an ongoing thread where members of the CCG community are able to contribute to the Creative community, by submitting theme ideas & tips.

    There are endless possibilities for themes, so lets put these ideas down on .. the internet? o_O

    All you have to do is submit a theme idea or a building tip.
    Ex: Medieval - Use upside-down stairs for roofs.

    Any inappropriate comments, repeated themes, will be deleted.

    I hope this thread finds you inspiration & desire to build :)

    Happy Building!

    Yes, @TheAdventurerMM. Now, @caliocean, there could be many I can suggest, like medieval, or flowers (since I'm surprisingly obsessed with them), or something modern (which I suck at). For medieval, don't make the roofs go one up and one in for the incline, because it makes it look dull and boring. Depending in the size of your house, you can make windows on the sides of the roof as well. Use stone bricks and cobblestone for your supports, and use fences, wooden stairs, cobblestone walls, wooden slabs, etc., for your detail. And, use wood logs for the beams and main structure of your house.

    Steampunk - fences/ladders for support beams. Also, be sure to try make some Tudor effect in the build, doing this can be easy, just use oak (logs) and wool together, or even oak and sandstone. But with sandstone, maybe try take it back a block from the oak 1 block, for more depth. And also, instead of wool, you can even use clay.

    Like so:

    An example of the stairs would be like this:

    How you do this is: Take out the build a little bit more than 1 block as you build out, and add the support beams to the side(s) where you have made the build stick out. Simple!

    Build ships:
    First think by yourself how many blocks are under water.
    Then you build layer for layer the ship. Every time come out
    bye one or two blocks. Also think how long it must be, if you have the
    length you can figure out by yourself how high it must be... xD

    Medieval and terraforming.

    Medieval:
    Use wood planks, spruce wood, cobble, and stonebrick
    Terraforming:
    Do a skeleton of the build first, then make it hallow and outlined.
