Pagoda

Pagoda

It certainly looks impressive from the outside. (I personally don't like cobblestone, its "speckliness" gives me headache so a may use MC Edit to replace it with other materials to see how they effect the overall aesthetics of the structure.) I am now trying to "reverse engineer" the empty interior and place structures inside akin to what one would find in a real pagoda which would hold all that weight up. I recall seeing huge timber compression columns and shear beams inside Buddhist Pagodas I wen inside in Vietnam. I will then try to intergrate some sort of staircase in amongst the structural beams and columns
Although the Minecraft environment allows for both "Skyhooks" and "Castles in the Air", when I build projects which emulate real-world structures I like to follow real-word civil engineering practices and consider which structural members of a structure are in shear, compression or tension. When this is considered, the result is even more realistic and a structural interior develops along with the interior.
If you use MC-Edit to "strip down" my "Llrago Institute of Minecraft" so just the sandstone remains, you will see the real-world engineering compression arches and columns at the heart of its structure.
"Torre del Colon" has four obsidian compression columns which go right up through the core of each tower, these emulate the steel compression beams in the real building.

Had a look at this one. I seemed to be an NPC village with a wall added around it. This certainly gives it a sense if security against the ingress of hostile MOBs and the numerous Jack-O-Lanterns and torches both inside and on the wall ensure the hostile MOB spawn rate inside is maintained at a low level.
The single iron door seemed to be fitted from the inside, so unsure if a creeper would detonate if it were to occupy the space in the wall immediately behind the door and you were to stant right at the door on the inside.
A nice little secure place to come to at nightfall though, assuming someone would let you in.

Rusty's Fort Town

Rusty's Fort Town

When placed it on my test map, heaps of villagers escaped out through the back.
I has a nice secure and safe feel about it, but the possibility exists of being knocked, or falling from the walls or towers between the castellations.
There is always a compromise between appearance and function though.
Love the row of "Dunnies". I assume this it to increase the villager spawn rate.
I'm hoping, that somewhere down the track, Notch or Jeb will create some way of implementing large controllable doors or portculusses in Minecraft, because the entrance-exit if such a structure as this needs to keep nasties out, villagers in and selectively admit a player seeking safe refuge.

This structure definitely has the look and feel of an older 1960's style prison cell block. It is assumed that some sort of redstone control of the iron cell doors will ultimately be fitted.
As in a real prison, this structure needs some sort of delineation between the "secure" areas and "staff" areas.

Medium Prison

Medium Prison

I had a look. Found the eight cells, each with no "door" or other from of closure. Could not find the isolation cell nor the room depicted in the lowest of the three pictures above.
I understood that the upper floor was the visiting room, but was unable to understand the purpose the lava retained by pistons at the entrance. There were four outer pistons in the entrance of which the purpose was also unclear.
Overall the structure had the grim "air" of a prison about it and on an adventure map, without block-breaking ability, it could serve its said purpose.
It seemed to lack "staff" areas, where any door and lock controls would be expected to be located, out of reach of "prisoners". (The trapdoor control was accessible to prisoners).

CobbleStone Castle

It looks nice, i just wanted to build it with Schematica, there's water blocks and clay and sand and everything underneath it. Just wanted something basic like the top. Nice build though.

After first downloaded, everything from the topblock in the letters incl. the logoes were missing. I had to build the rest myself.
the file was also copied in a wierd way, making me spawning it under the ground first time.

Heres a picture of the current pvp towers on my server: http://dreamphreak.com/i/46131.png
Just a simple obsidian one, and a netherbrick one. I will try to upload both within the hour and with a detailed description. The players really love to use these pvp towers since they can let in all their friends, but shoot anyone else that comes close, like a clubhouse.
