Designs by: The Bearded Guru


Recommended Posts

Well I keep posting rando stuff I build for the clan and some things on my personal server. I'll be posting things I'm proud of here to offer up some inspiration to our fellow Vikings. I've included proof that I'm indeed "The Bearded Guru" which is a nickname I got at work after I lost a bet. Also note the RBG mask, woman was legend!!

Needed a quick way to get around for smelting, there was a river, I had the solution....roads will be coming to the clan server soon....The attached gate house will accommodate the weary traveler with a warm bed and a secure sleeping location.

Name: First Portal

I make my side look biblical, coming down the steps like a second coming into town and @RenFengge and @FallenDark200  make some rando stairs that don't connect to anything, not to mention our new epic portal...this...this is what I working with.... btw, portals are dope.

Now that we have portals, we need a hub to move about the map. After much "debate" about how they worked with @RenFengge , I was tasked with making a hub. I wanted to make a great mead hall anyway so the two naturally seem to fit. Alas, my designs were underway, and I think good progress was made. It's about 57.9873% complete at this point and will be done by the end of the week. With the portals downstairs and the FG Meadery upstairs, you too can enjoy a pint before dashing away to mine some copper or chop some wood through your favorite portal.

 

Enjoy some in flight shots as the day progressed. I especially enjoy the dragon head, keeping our mead hall and portal hub safe!!!

Honestly Carl, these were a sight for sore eyes when seeing the progress take place yesterday. The hall was amazing seeing it constructed, sometimes more so than a finished product because it reminded me of how sometimes in films you see them creating building in the back ground and it felt like that! The portal will be a lifesaver in the early stages....we may need to think of where the others will go when we open up the map on the larger scale!

@phil bottle, @GazzaGarratt Well thanks for the feedback and kind words, I will take more in progress shots going forward. We will have at least 12 portals in this building. Can certainly fit double if we wanted to. My thought was having another hub somewhere. Like when we get to another continent. Think train station or airport. We can pick 12 locations of importance here, with a 13th leading to another station. These hubs would just be a leg in a connecting "flight". Will be better than traveling across oceans everytime! Although the dock you two were working on is going to make that first voyage special!!!

Much debate? Slag that. You mean me explaining how they actually work? Then, everyone else realizing it... but you needing @FallenDark200  to reiterate what I said for you to get it? Lolz.

 

Love ya!

 

(P.S. FGers, our "quips" at each other are all in good fun haha)

UPDATE: So I put a few hours in tonight, I think I made decent progress. I added a bit of style to the back, it's a half round room that has 7 (can fit 8, need a few materials) portals, only 4 in use which frees up some space and we can put another 8 upstairs. More additions include a forge bench, for our meadery. I was half thinking of mining a basement for it since we need fire and a cauldron, still thinking about that one. I 've had to dig deep to level this land out and I might hit the water table too quickly but we will see, more to come. 

 

To Do's:

I'm going to be looking to fellow Vikings to help decorate. I think the sconce lighting will be good so we need 2 copper bars per. I think maybe hang some of our trophy's on the wall? Maybe some weapons?

 

When folks play for a bit, we will need everyone to pick up everything!! Berries, weeds, shrooms, etc. All these things are needed for potions now. Also, "bee" on the look out for bee hives, we need more queens to set up more hives here at the meadery. 

 

Finally, I need our more anal-retentive or OCD folks to help with chest signage, at this point, having dedicated chests for everything is probably a must with signs.

UPDATE: Poked around the inside tonight, goal was getting a working level 3 forge, meadery (cauldron & fermenter), and legit storage bank. After farming 70 copper to make the magic happen, I went to work. I'm quite happy with the results and think this might be the best, and most compact storage set up. This allows 500u of 12 items in only 2 x 1.5 cubed area, 500x16 for a 2x2 or 6k and 8k unit capacity respectively. That's pretty compact considering most small outposts are at least 4x6! I splurged with some sconces but never fear, there is plenty more copper out in the world. I guess I was that anal-retentive guy for label and sorting after all. So go out, forage and bring back the spoils to the potion pantry. I plan on doing similar ones for other goods as well. 

 

Last but not least, feel free to have a brew and curl up by the fire on backs of all those deer we slaughtered!!

Now that is so frickin clever, why didn't I think about chests would look sideways!! You've created something quite amazing there, Carl @TurboR56Mini . Looking forward to getting on at some point this week and taking a look around. I want to finish off a port up North to build some boats so people can freely feel like they can explore on their own or in a group if they wanted to.

 

Just a quick thought whilst its in my head - I know you can hover over portals and eventually it'll show where its going but I'd much prefer signs above the portals anyone can quickly see which one is which without going up to each one. Easy to forget when you go off so a simple sign goes a long way!

Thanks @GazzaGarratt, I started to play with sings for the portals but it was late and it did not look good easily. I'll attack it today. As for the dock, I'm super excited for you guys to finish that. @RenFengge also realized we only explored north so far 😂. I think she plans on going south for another portal post!

We need a launch base/outpost for the Second Boss fight on Sunday... so, I'll go in that direction before I go south.

As requested @GazzaGarratt you now have signs to the portals. I think this does the job well enough! Skål

Name: Basement

Location: FG Server, West Island 

 

@RenFengge  and I may have taken the boat for a sail...we may have discovered a smallish west island...and may have created a portal there. The boat is also there at the moment... @GazzaGarrattif we wreck it, I will build you a new one, promise!! So we built this little cabin on a dungeon that we landed on...figured they don't respawn so now we have a basement to store things?!?!?

That's a really nice view from the base...be aware as you head left (facing sea view where the boat is docked) there's a dwarf spawner a little way up the way

We will have to go kill it then!!! Thanks for the heads up. We plan on sailing south to explore, hence the long sail from the north thus far.

Name: Hunting Lodge

Location: FG Server, Elder Base Camp

 

So @RenFengge  and I promised a portal to the Elder as we dicked around trying to get the Stag. With this goal in mind, I wandered up to the Elder location on the map and scouted a place to build. I saw a troll and took him out from a massive rock face overlooking the water, and what appears to be mountains. So I think to myself, self...can I build a hunting lodge INSIDE a rock face and fill it in with wood. Well the answer is, well of course you can.

 

So tonight I give to you the comfy hunting cabin that sleeps 8 in my first super compact Japanese style bunks (google "capsule hotel), now that's space saving! With my inner Ikea going, I went about decorating our hunting cabin with all of our prey. Front and center is Marvin the troll I killed to christen the site.  As you can tell, the outside has a small footprint with only some roof showing. The inside is basically glamping, although, 100 hours in and I've yet to see anyone built a shitter.... Hope everyone enjoys, the portal name is "Elder" and can be found at on the left hand side of the ring in the mead hall. OOO fun fact, I also built a path right to the Elder alter so no one gets lost on our upcoming hunting trip!!

@TurboR56Mini you man are a pure creative genius lol I can think of amazing ideas like that but never execute them probably! Hopefully I can make it on sometime soon as well @RenFengge been really busy this week. My puppy just had eye surgery on both of his eyes so it's been kinda of hectic kind of a week and then throw my work on top of it just makes it a mess but hopefully I can play with ya both here soon.
