So I've been dabbling in actual building in MC instead of just a 9x9 so I want to know what you guys think. I would love to hear your opinions on what I can do to make it better. So far I have the bottom done. The carpet is made of light blue wool and it's not done yet. I would love to know if there's anything I can do around the base to make it look better all around. Also, what do you guys think for a roof?

you need to build it bigger/better before people will take notice, or even bother replying.
that said, keep us posted ;)

Sure. I'll try to come up with some ideas for the roof and stuff to put around the outside to make it look nicer. It just looks bland right now.

I know its a _huge_ PITA, but try adding some curves/corners, or even make the roof like real life.
It will make your house MUCH more fun to live in, and add some much-needed cozyness :)

While I like the look of an oval, wouldn't that make it a lot less functional? Rectangles are great for wiring. I suppose it could work. Besides, this won't be my main power and machine area. I'll have a different building entirely for that.

Form and Function do not always fit well in MC.

Personally I like things to look nice more then things being super compact or effenct.

But to each their own. I do belive cuasing yourself to have to work with odd builds over all makes you better at building then if you just stuck to the easy and strightforward builds.

Its is kind of like art. If you just copy and trace all the time you get good only at doing the same thing. But if you expariment and explore you get good at the more odd and out of the box things. One is route learning the other is actual skill building.

I like to look at real life structures for inspiration.








Take what you find amazing about these buildings and use them in your builds.

Im not a expert in building but here what Ive done so fart.

Zombies spawner top left and Thaumcraft Laboratory at right.

( Purple building is a thaumcraft ' bank ' made of warded stone block and arcane door ).

My little domain...underground basement ( not shown on picture ) have all the machinery. Garden have golems workers gathering stuff for me sending all the goods underground to be refined or recycled. Water pump station, blaze farm , slime farm, bees and more to come.

So I've been working on the base a lot. I got a nuclear reactor set up and I finished my house. It looks awful and I would love some opinions on it. Right now I'm typing from my phone so I can't post pictures. Also, what is the best engine to run a quarry?

depends on what you have available. If you have a fuckton of lava: magmatics. If you have a huge treefarm, bioengines. If you have a very well established IC2 line, Electrical Engines.

Well I have a mass fab and a recycler going right now. Maybe I'll try electrical. Don't they covert EU to MJ though?

Alright. Well here are the pics of my current world. The quarry isn't set up yet since i'm out of diamonds. I'm having some problems with my turtle so I'll have to mine the diamonds manually. So far my house is pretty bad. Very bland.

There a lot of pictures and they're all self explanatory. Any suggestions for the house? For those of you who are wondering. The reactor is putting out 100eu/t and is powering a mass fab,recycler,3 of the advanced machines and a couple basic machines.

It's nothing amazing, but definitely better than a 9x9 :)
Keep experimenting and I'm sure you'll find the perfect combination of function and style.
Personally, I make an extremely aesthetic-based building with basic machines and storage, and anything bulky or ugly (like the GT multi blocks) go in a basement until I can make them a nice-looking room of their own :)

I plan on building a nice village type thing. So far I have my main house and a power plant. Pretty basic solar panel setup and a nuclear reactor. Sadly, i'm using more power then i'm generating so I have to sort that out. My goal for this world is to pretty much utilize every mod. I started with IC2 and have slowly moved into GT and TC. and a little bit of CC. But it's mostly IC2. Also, how does this sound, I'll have different buildings for different storage areas. I'm gonna have a cow shaped building for all meats and and food. What would be a good building for storing wood? I don't wanna do a tree because i'm gonna have a "Tech Tree" for my future TE machines.

What on earth is a 9x9?

Like the idea of diff building for diff stuff. Not a cow. Just it's head. Also, for wood a wooden block. Like, a model of it.
