Radish Roost in the early dawn light. Rebellion, Scree, NE of spire. (Beta Build).
Landmark recently held a competition for landmarks, builds that would make a statement on the landscape, to permanently add to the game world at the spires. We haven’t heard about the winners yet (dang those bushfires) but I thought I’d show you my own entry into the competition.
I’ve been experimenting with wood sculptures since the beta started and that gave me the idea for my entry. Many folk in Landmark have built treehouses winding around the outside of tree props with great success and I do so love them. I wanted to go one step further and build a treehouse inside a tree. Thus the Radish Roost was born. Continue Reading
My inspiration turned into something quite different.
Alpha build by Radish.
Landmark’s alpha has come and gone, we’re well into beta now. I challenged myself with an inspirational picture in Settling Into Landmark and I thought it was time to let y’all see how that went. The lead picture depicts my tower and courtyard walls, along with my attempt at an onion dome.
The two pictures don’t look much alike, do they? One is all circles and domes, the other octagonal and pointy. I suppose that’s the thing about inspiration, you never know where it will lead. Setting myself this challenge did accomplish one thing, it got me building and experimenting with voxels. Continue Reading
Landmark’s prop interface is clumsy, tedious and slow.
Building with voxels is all the rage in Landmark. Voxels are great for building rectangular structures but anything other than a box is more tricksy. People (innovative, curious, experimenting people) find a way to do extraordinary things with voxels and the rest of us learn from them.
When I look at some of the tricks voxel builders are pulling off, I suspect a degree in advanced geometry is required to fully master voxels. For those not wanting to invest in advanced geometry, props will add the decorative complexity we need to create our dreams. As their numbers increase, props will become the other half of the building game in Landmark. Continue Reading
