    Follow My Build: Dalaran


    Limoman here, with his second major build. This thread is to replace the current one of the same name in the Showroom section.
    Dalaran is a large floating wizard city in the game, World of Warcraft. I started designing it on squared paper at the end of june. After 2 weeks of mad scribbleing and varous scale changes, i came up with a basic layout. Wizards like tall towers, and my main problem was how to include these in the city without running out of sky. The answer was to bring the floating city down to ground level and then undermine it to keep it "floating". So, i plan to dig out a Grand Canyon style hole under the city. The dimensions of Dalaran are about 150 blocks across and a further 100 blocks either side of that for the canyon.

    Its location is in Tundra: http://www.minecraftaddicts.com/map/....518509&zoom=8
    I started building on Saturday 16th July and after 2 weeks, i'm still at the building layout stage. To make things easier for me, i'm only using 3 types of building material: Cobble for outdoor areas, smooth slabs for indoor areas and sandstone for walls. These will mostly be replaced once i'm happy with the size and layout. I think another week will be time enough to complete the layout. The next stage will be building the "underbelly", Dalaran's sewer system. That too will be in basic form, just to give me an idea how deep to go on the Canyon, later.
    It's hard to say how long the whole project will take. i'm guessing 3/4 months.
    I'll update this thread once a week.

    The city layout is now complete. I will probably spend another day finishing the perimeter and then make a start on the layout of the sewer system. This will involve alot of "diggin" and may take a couple of weeks.

    Ok, the basic layout of the city and it's sewer system are now in place. Now its time to replace all that ugly cobble with the finished buildings. I'll use screenshots from World of Warcraft and try and find materials that match the pictures. I'll do one building at a time, again starting from the centre of the city.

    Day 45 to 51 (29th August to 4th September)


    Another week of building. It's taking about an hour and a half per structure at the moment. My huge supply of sand is almost gone so i'm having to start the 'diggin' (undermining the city) early and clear the area under the city as i need the material.

    Day 59 to 65 (12th to 18th September)


    This week was spent working on several projects. I've managed to finish my smaller ones, so hopefully i can devote more building time to Dalaran, next week. To date, i've completed 20 buildings, with roughly 17 more to do, not including the sewer system.

    Day 73 to 79 (26th September to 2nd October)


    This week i decided to add an extra building to the city (numbered 27). Origanaly, i was only going to do an exterior, but chose to do an interior at the last minute. So, several days were spent designing it. Its the building known as the Violet Hold, a large prison in Dalaran. In World of Warcraft, its a bit like Dr Who's Tardis, in that its bigger on the inside than the outside. This would be a pain to build to scale, so i've done a scaled down interior that still keeps the character of the origanal.
