    Post your minecraft mansions/castles n stuff, anything that has no use other than it was fun to build and cool to look at.

    This is mine I just finished today. It was made without any cheats whatsoever, in a world where I use no cheats EVERRRR


    Opening Garden Lobby, it's kinda cute.

    Lava Floor, again no use, but I think it looks cool and I didn't have to use any torches. I coulda checkered it with lava and obsidian, but meh.

    Balcony, goes all around the mansion on this floor, I have the lantern on each corner to light it up.

    Midway Loby, looks stony compared to the rest of the building.

    Bedroom. I know there are beds now, but this looks cooler and more mansion like.



    Outside view.

    That looks way too small to be a mansion.

    I agree.

    A mansion, manson or manor is a very large dwelling house. U.S. realtors define a mansion as a dwelling of over 8,000 square feet. A traditional European mansion was defined as a house which contained a ballroom and tens of bedrooms. Today, however, there is no formal definition beyond being a large and well-appointed house.
    Your "Mansion" isn't even close to being any of these. It looks like all you did was stack blocks straight up, add some floors, a plain "balcony" and called it a mansion.

    It looks more like Ganondorf's castle.

    I like it though.

    I didn't even think of that.

    We were going for an Icecrown Citadel kind of look.

    But with lava.

    You can climb all the way to the top of it. It also has a sleeping area, kitchen (if you flip a switch, a dispenser gives you cooked bacon), test area, transit station and dungeon.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that.

    I just wasn't thinking about Ganondorf when we built it.

    It was a png, the site I uploaded it to auto-converted it to jpg.
    Besides, the artifacts aren't that bad in the pic.

    Speaking of WoW Structures, someone should get a server hosted where we make full scale WoW cities(Stormwind, Org, Undercity, etc.) and some instance structures(ICC, Black Temple, etc.)

    Come to think of it, I've never had a major solo building project, I've always ended up just making enough for a house, or enough to get a foothold in, then all I did was either explore or farm until I made a new save.

    Looks like Sauron's tower from lord of the rings.

    You should add Sauron's eye at the top, made from glowstone and lava.

    Low quality JPEG is like a plague to pictures

    edit;

    although yeah you're right theres no bad artifacts, for some reason images were being all compressed on my end and now it looks a whole lot better for some reason

    Heres my Port Sephia Mansions

    Sorry I can't get newer photos on here, I use my android phone for tethering on AT&Ts shit network, uploading large images is a pain in the ass when it keeps dropping the connection every 30kB in.

    North Bay Mansion

    Its the bottom windows from the center right to the bottom right.

    Contains 3 bedrooms, 2 switch rooms, 1 boat dock, a large foundry (52 ovens, oh yeah, I do use them all), 2 large storage rooms/banks, a ballroom and a grand hallway (Viewable from the right).
    Wish i had better pictures here...

    Now thats the newest mansion, built on the newest part of the teraformed terrain. Now, this city is huge. takes a few minutes to get end to end. Since i just build a shell around the terrain with rock, this mansion has many access corridors (the reason for all these dumb switch rooms).

    the 2nd mansion

    This skyscraper was my 2nd mansion built on the western bay. This served as my home for many months while building this city. Just has an oven, a chest and a craft table. No bed since beds weren't invented then. The bottom of the tower has my larger storage room and direct access to the train system that lead straight to my floating fortresses.

    The first mansion

    This is the initial landing back in november of 2010. Right below the cursor is my former foundry, to the left was my home. The structure with all the windows is the store. The right, is the gate room. The first thing that was built, and rebuilt. Fuck you fire.

    Edited:



    This is just partial of my castle, also known as the floating fortresses. This is pretty much the bottom part, of the western tower.
    you can view it all here and here (for the final product).
    note: the final product isn't really final. I added a water skyway and a boathouse on the other end. Not pictured. fuck you 3g connection.

    Right now we have a 3x3 block of burning Netherstone up there (you can almost kinda' see it). The tower works great for finding your way back from exploration.
