    The Island of fun aka Dph's Amusemants


    Well I have meaning to start this thread after talking to some mods and them suggesting that I do so here it is!

    Welcome to the start of Dph's Island of fun. This project is a re-imagination of a secret project that I started with help on the historic world but is back better than ever with new ideas on the Build world!

    Sadly I have not got screenshots of every update but I will be taking screenshots often from now and and updating this thread!

    So it all started a while ago and so I claimed a nice plot of sea.. And the progress was going to get tough!



    I firstly made an outline with dirt of where I wanted the island to be and then proceeded to build the island.

    I started by making the shoreline and building down to the bottom of the sea in tiers to try and make it look natural rather than being a floating 'block'





    These following images are ones from the time where someone was trying to troll me (of which the chat log can be found somewhere on the forum) so forgive me for the chat open on them.


    Draining the area took ages: here are a few more images from the draining time. When I had drained half of the island I started to cover it. Firstly with stone and then secondly with dirt.











    The above image shows what it looks like under the island currently. This block of water I left to symbolise the last 5x5 square of water under the island with the darkness created by the fully topped island. It is a little dark and as some people will have seen there are bats everywhere!


    This is the current top down image of the island. I have a plan to even out the beach around the side a little more as there are some areas where the sand/grass boundary is straight.



    As you can see I have a small potato farm to help collect Poisened potatoes which are what the islands currency is going to be. With some edition of course. See the following photo for how many I have currently!





    Talking about tokens I have created a token exchange and have labeled it as such! This mechanism will trade 1 diamond for 3 tokens and then the opposite side will trade 4 tokens for 1 diamond. This is what the planned exchange rate currently!







    The Mechanism:





    Most recently I have been making the front sections of the island. With the front side of the welcome building (which I do not know if I like yet). But my thanks to Alien12 and others for the help with the arch in the middle of the four pools.


    The current building that I am working on (or planning) are:
    A casino - A building with 4-6 slot machines, these will vary from Double or nothing machines where you will pay one token, have about 50% chance to double up each time. You will be able to play til you lose, or cash out!

    A rollercoaster - 1 token per ride possibly.

    And a number of minigames!

    Talk to me in game if you have any suggestions or if you want to have a look at the island! It will open at some point. Perhaps 1-2 months before some of the machines are turned on!

    I hope this post hasn't been too long and is acceptable progress report!

    So some things have changed! The idea that that stone fronting seen on the last post has gone out the door and the casino is going up!just been built freehand to no specific specification. It is currently made up of Netherquartz which is a pain to mine and as we are now on 1.7 the glass that is being installed in the tower is black glass to give some nice contrast against the quartz. Any donations of quartz will be most gratefully received and I may have some floors that I will invite people to decorate at some point!

    The mechanism of one of the slot machines is nearly done and when I get that one working I can easily make the next couple!

    The casino is being built with some aspects taken from casinos in Las Vegas but
    The first screenshot was taken by Astra:


    And the following screenshots were taken by TwistedT. Thanks!

    Well its my third post in this thread here it goes.

    Well the casino is going up. The quartz is painful to gather as I am sure you all will have heard me moaning about. And I have been spending far too much time on mca. More on that at the end of the post.

    So this what the casino looks like at the moment. The front of it is complete and has nice curved sides to give it a little bit of texture to the tower which will have flats inside them.



    Here we have the levels that have appeared inside the casino. Up those steps will be a cafe one side and a bar the other.



    Here we have the back view of the casino. As you can see hugely unfinished due to the fact that quartz blocks take a very long time to gather. In the center of the back is going to be a semicircle shape where there will be a staircase going upwards.



    And I leave you with a nice picture of some flowers with a message under it.


    So Addicts it has come to the time in my life where I have to re-evaluate what is important. As many of you will know I am a University student and from here on it will get tough. Very tough. Owing to this I am going to be cutting down on my playing of mc for a while. Perhaps forever but that is not what I would want as I love this community and I would hate to not be a part of it anymore.

    This project will slowly proceed and when I have a spare Saturday where I just need to rest I will come on and be doing redstone but for the most part the massive hours and hours each day collecting quartz has to stop for me. I am sorry to say. Due to this I will be willing to sell anything I currently have if I would normally sell it in my shop but I cannot promise I have it and I won't be going out of my way to collect it unless it would be a project I support or you ask and I want something mindless to do for a while.

    Have a good day addicts and I will hopefully see you soon.

    Signing off. For now.
    David
