    I'd Love to, but I think they still need to do some work on that view, it is an instant crash if I try to turn it on anywhere near that fort :/

    Also, Vid capture is out for the moment, My Elder PC has seen better days and won't do both the game and vid capture at the same time :(
    But I'm upgrading throughout the spring so once I have a new 6 core CPU I should be good for everything :D

    I've posted a bunch more shots from the weekend here

    Can we dig and build underground or into a mountain yet? I'm waiting on the edge of my seat for steam to release this!

    I've got 2 hours to go until I can buy. And then a bit longer to finish some Anatomy homework so I don't have anything else I have to do in RL

    My castle that was made to make Newton proud:

    The view of the entrance

    A side view:

    A view of the 'center':

    And the inside of the barrack:

    This is still a work in progress, many things to be added (such as flags)

    I qould say it's a bug, but it might also be because the Sacred order of the Pink Flamingo is everywhere!

    Yep! My Castle (link in my sig) started out with a tunnel dug through the mountain.
    I have since added an underground Siege Factory and have an elevator shaft going all the way to the summit of the mountain.

    So far it looks like the Full stone blocks don't take SI into account if they are anchored to the Ground so Underground construction should be good (of course if they change SI to work with Anchored blocks then everything I have underground will collapse)

    I'll update that pictures thread this weekend once I have time to add a bunch more work to it

    Did you get those statues and Beds using the Public= true mod? or has Keen unlocked a bunch more blocks? (Really hoping for a working Pulley)

    Nevermind, I just saw the Change log!
    Now I can't wait to get home to see if those lag fixes help with my proximity lag (Maybe i'll actually be able to walk through my castle with more than .5 FPS)

    Hi everybody, I discovered this today on steam and then spent two hours chewing my nails until I could download it! This is what I've been looking for for DECADES!

    So I was going to build an awesome castle but then I screwed up the landscaping tool and built a pretty ruin. :D

    Wow, there are already some nice creations :D

    My first castle is still work in progress, but I think for a first time it's already pretty nice.

    That's so far my progress.
    I also have planned to put trebuchets on the two big gate towers.

    And my next castle will be a replica of one of the castles which are pretty close to my location.
    It's Schloss-Burg in Solingen (Germany).

    Here are a few pics of it:

    Thank you! But actually, I'm quite happy sandboxing, I don't need PVP and all that stuff. I only wish there were some more wall varieties such as half walls, rounded walls and columns. I'll just have to wait.

    Nah, I'm just messing with you. That's the guardhouse up front. This is my real first castle.

    Plus quite a bit under ground that you can't see because its inside the mountain.

    This is inspired by Xocliw's castle.
