  2. Hey hey!
    I am not a talented builder at all, so seeing other people's builds is somewhat satisfying to me. This map looks so clean and I really want to play on it now! You are super talented :sigils:

  4. In the making of an outside terrain for players to see :3

  5. My main concern upon seeing this is that the floor is made up of lots of different blocks (which looks incredible but isn't very practical for players that gather blocks to use). But it looks amazing and I love the theme and name. Can't wait to see what comes next!

  8. Wow that’s a pretty good looking map, my building abilities are definitely something to be desired so seeing stuff like this just amazes me that people are able to stuff like this.
    Just wondering, what made you decide to name this map “The Heart of Sakura”?

  9. Hey there!

    Sakura means “cherry blossom” in japanese, which is sort of the theme I was aiming for! “The Heart” part was to I guess emphasize the beauty of the map. (if that makes sense)

  10. Oh yea for sure it does, that’s a pretty good name, I didn’t really expect it to have that much meaning if you know what I’m saying, plus, when I saw the word Sakura I automatically assumed it had something to do with Naruto for whatever reason lol

  13. I Would suggest looking at a couple more japanese structures when designing this. I think the detailing looks a little off. Also I would maybe suggest making the tree thing a little larger, having it small like that looks a little strange.

  14. I would make the building roof a little steeper as it goes into the middle, or even research a little more on pagodas and add a second layer or something. Also, I would make the sakura trees a little more prominent, maybe make the middle island have a big one on it. Because after all your map is called "The Heart of Sakura." The floor is a little cluttered, I would make it have bigger pockets of blocks so it is easier to collect materials. Over all, I think you are off to a great start, but it still needs a bit of work. Thanks for taking some time out to make a map for mineplex, I appreciate it!

  15. hey there!

    to address some things:
    - fences on the buildings have been removed and replaced with colored stained glass to represent teams
    -the reason why the tree is so small is because I didn’t want to make it, seem too cramped if you get what I mean. by making this tree into a larger scale, we would have to add more branches and leaves to the side making it looks more cramped.

    I’m also trying to not overdetail the buildings, the guidelines state that I shouldn’t really do that

  16. Hey there! Thank you for your suggestions :3

    I may change the bases into a little more of a pagodas shape, as for the big sakura tree in the middle island I think it would be a little too big? If you can show me any other maps with a large structure in the middle that would be appreciated:3 for the floor, I will definitely add pockets of blocks for players to get materials more easily, thank you for the suggestions again!

  17. In terms of tree larger, I mean taller, I would suggest looking at an example The Dark War Lord did on Youtube about a cherry blossom tree. If you don't think the tree should be larger maybe take it out

  18. I probably won't be suggesting anything because I am the worst person to talk when the theme is building on Minecraft, so I have no property to comment on this topic xD, although for sure I want to reply to this map of yours, which I absolutely loved! I really like the unique theme you picked, as it's pretty hard to see a Japanese themed map here on Mineplex, so good choice! The colors and the structures you used are matching your theme as well. I loved the contrast of the pink trees with the brown colors. If you want, you can possibly add a bit more details to compliment this red; it'd be great!

    I really like your map though and I want to play on it. The small addition you put in the center of the map made a difference too. It's a small detail, but I liked it. Hope you keep on improving your buildings and I wish you good luck on having your newest map live on the server.
