    Day 80 to 86 (3rd to 9th October)


    The Violet Hold (building 27) is now complete. Buildings 28 to 31 are also complete by the weekend, meaning that the 3rd quarter is finished. There are now only 3 buildings left, to complete the upper level of Dalaran. The last of the three will be the biggest in the whole of the city; thats why ive left it till last. i reckon it will take the whole of next week to finish these three. Ive also started constructing a large cobble grid over the whole of the claim. This is to help me scale things when i come to terraforming the surrounding land outside the city. ill plan it out on paper and then scale it up a grid-square at a time. But, i'm getting ahead of myself. That stage will be near the end of the build.

    Day 87 to 93 (10th to 16th October)


    Three months have passed now. My origanal estimate to finish the whole project was 3/4 months. I'm nowhere near finishing so i'm guessing another 3 months at least. I'm in no rush. Even though the floorplan was planned out on paper, first, each building is being built from screenshots of the game rather than a scematic of somekind. Thats why its taking so long. I'd rather spend the extra time getting it right, and not rush to finish it and end up with crap. The last 3 buildings are taking longer than expected. By the end of this week i'd only finished one and nearly finished a second. The second will be finished after an hours work, i reckon. i'm running into the same old problem of running out of sandstone, which means running off into Outland to a sand quarry i've setup, every 15 minutes. At least after these last two buildings are finished, i won't need the stuff anymore.

    Day 94 to 100 (17th to 23rd October)


    Well, i was hopeing to finish the upper city by the end of this week. Unfortunately, because of problems at Mojang over the weekend, i havn't been able to finish the final building (34). Another hour or so is all i need to finish that before i start work on the sewer.

    Day 101 to 107 (24th to 30th October)


    A small milestone has been reached. I've finished all the buildings in the city. I still need to furnish and decorate them plus build the perimeter wall around the city, but i can do that later. Onto the next stage; the sewer system. I've begun in the main chamber by working on the huge, vaulted ceiling. It took me a while to come up with a design i was happy with. It uses smooth slabs which are a pain to place, because when you double stack them, the second slab has to be placed from above, and that can be difficult if they are going on the ceiling. But, i came up with a method of doing it even if it was a bit slow to do.

    Day 108 to 114 (31st October to 6th November)


    It took me the whole week, but the main chamber of the sewer system is now complete. The ceiling, i started last week, took the greatest amount of time. The wooden shacks inside the chamber were easy enough, but the shallow layer of water, again, took awhile to do. Next week, i'll decide which of the 2 side chambers will be next. now that i have the ceiling design sorted, it shouldn't take as long.

    Day 115 to 121 (7th to 13th November)


    The build has now reached the 4 month stage. The side chamber ceiling took longer than expected, this week. First it was at the wrong height, so i had to clear a large area, first. Then i hit the problem of tunneling into the cellar of one of the Inns, above. That section of the ceiling had to be redesigned, so that it hangs lower than the rest. It looks a bit odd at the moment, but once i add the main wooden building, next to it, it should blend in better. Also this week, i managed to finish the large cobble grid, suspended above my entire claim. This looks at bit ugly, but will help me plan the landscaping around the city, later.

    Monday

    No building today. Spent time clearing the area below the city and working on the Grid.

    Day 122 to 128 (14th to 20th November)


    Things went a little slow, this week. This was down to the fact that both Skyrim and Minecraft were released. I know Skyrim came out last week, but my copy didn't arrive untill tuesday of this week. Also, i havn't bothered looking into the 1.9 pre-releases, so the 1.0 release was a proper update for me from 1.8. So, there were a lot of new features for me to try out. As a result, i hadn't devoted the same amount of time to Dalaran as i usually do. Now that the initial excitment is over, things should be back on schedule, next week.

    Day 129 to 135 (21st to 27th November)


    A milestone for both me and the Server, this week. I finally finish the sewer system and the Gods update the server to 1.0. New blocks, new mechanics and lots of new members. Welcome to you all. The new block types will mean updating parts of my city, but that won't be a big job and ill leave it untill i come to furnish the buildings. After finishing the sewer, i went round the perimeter of the city, finishing the "backsides" of all the buildings. After, i made a start on outer edge. This will consist of a couple blocks of grass, a few trees and flowers, and then a low wall down to the huge floating rock, that the city will finally sit on. There is no server shop at the moment, so i cant buy wool to finish one of the buildings or grass blocks for my perimeter. With the grass, i'm using the old fashioned method of growing it using a dirt landbridge from my nearest patch of green. Another job i managed to do this week was to survey my land claim and come up with a scale map, ready for my landscaping later.

    Day 136 to 142 (28th November to 4th December)


    The first full week of 1.0. The shop is back up (hooray) and many, many new members have joined us. The server limit has even been increased from 65 to 100. The edge of the city was finished this week, and i made a start on the stone island that the city sits on. at the moment it will be cobble. Once i get the shape right i will cover it with a layer of smooth stone. Also, this week, i started tearing down the ugly cobble grid, ive got floating above my claim. It's being replaced by small cobble "X"s where the lines crossed. I've designed the terrain that will be replacing the land around my city, and i will reveal that just before i come to mark it out.

    Day 143 to 149 (5th to 11th December)


    A week spent diggin. In fact i predict there will be several weeks of digging, while i clear space for my floating stone base. It's not very intersesting to look at, a big hole, slowly getting deeper. For that reason i won't be taking dailey pictures, just 3 or 4 during the week. As well as the Hole, ive nearly finished taking down the cobble grid. A couple more days and that will be down and then i can start marking out the terrain. Next week i might ask a couple of my fellow addicts if they would like to contribute to the build in there own special way. They are people who have influenced me during my time on the server, and it would be an honour to have them build somthing as part of the city. Watch this space.
