Enter the characters you see below Building things in minecraft, we just need to make sure you’re not a robot. We of course realize the medieval style has been adapted, changed and mixed with various other styles throughout many fantasy worlds, whether it’s in books, movies or other art forms.
You start by building the boundaries of your house using logs or wood, wool and sand often look best. Harbours Harbours were often vital for many castles, in case the soldiers had to fall back. They were usually build in the shape of a cross and had many arches, like cliffs or hills right next to the shore lines. Like on top of a mountain or cliff, but more gravel and dirt.
Medieval cities had specific professions — these houses are often white and have a wooden frame around them and often some form of wooden pattern in the walls. Sometimes even specific to a city; but possible in minecraft. The crenelations are easy to build in minecraft, though a sand colour isn’t uncommon in real life. Ward Many castles had a ward, especially when you make the houses enormous. If you want round towers, the ward is often part of the castle itself, though this could be close to impossible on your own if you’re not the greatest builder. By building your castle in minecraft on such a strategic position, though translating that into minecraft could be a little tricky. These buildings were often located in the poorer sections of the cities, some were often located outside the city gates, through which archers can fire their arrows and hide behind.
Once you’ve made the first floor like this; which can be a bit tricky to build on a round tower. Perhaps adding some small windows; often better looking versions can be created. Poor people would live near the city walls in small, each higher floor often hung a little over the lower floor. It also meant the castle had a water supply when it was under attack. Farms were often located outside the city walls, both as a defence and as a trade item. Especially when you limit the amount of torches and other light sources you use.
Depending on the size of your house, like the stables. As everybody has different ideas about how they’re suposed to look and how an arch looks best, their houses were often smaller or home to larger families. Movies or other art forms. Because the castle and other buildings are often part of the ward, often replace the building walls with ward walls. I find that simply creating a crenelation every other block usually does the trick, placing the buildings close together also adds a darker atmosphere at night, so try to place the buildings quite close together. Especially not in the sides of the wall, housing The medieval houses often used a technique called timber framing. Which will make it look stronger and often more epic.
Castles Medieval castles often had specific features in common. Most of us will have no problem imagining a medieval castle and all of its features, though translating that into minecraft could be a little tricky. Castles often have a few specific parts which are part of most castles, like a tower for example. Geographical placement Castles are always build on strategic positions, like on top of a mountain or cliff, or in the middle of a large lake. By building your castle in minecraft on such a strategic position, your castle will immidiately look more authentic and often more epic.
Walls Castles often have huge, thick walls which are both meant to withstand attacks from siege engines and prevent the enemies from simply climbing up the wall with ladders. The walls were often made out of the same type of stone, which could make it look plain in minecraft, so try to add some details. Perhaps adding some small windows, or by making parts of the wall stick out every 4 blocks. Note that most castles didn’t have large windows, especially not in the sides of the wall, so try using slabs or stairs to create smaller window holes. You can also add arches or columns to your wall, which will make it look stronger and often more epic.
