Heya, I thought that now might be a good time for a brief update.

All plots at Vyrvillage are complete! All that remains are detailing and the sept on the crown of the hill.
In the valley hamlet there are a few plots open now too and a number of small rural crofts will open as terrain is slowly completed.

Minis
Small quarry mini near vyrvillage available! They're pretty low tech so won't have much in the way of machinery. One of the main things they produce is quicklime and powder for the white/limewash on many houses throughout the region. So have a quicklime kiln in the set up. Around the site there are a few pointers from Irongiant and myself about what could and should go where but I'd love to hear more ideas about it.

West of vyrvillage there are two farmsteads. The one closer to the road is open for testing. Its a self-sufficient farmstead in a forest clearing. They have their own herd of goats or sheep and spin their own wool, make brilliantly crafted bows from the nearby yew grove and have small fields, veggie patch and herbarium in and around the clearing. I've plotted out the main farmhouse and an attendant building (could be an older sons farmhouse, could be a barn etc) plus there are more directions at the site.


Plots
There are open farmsteads scattered around the northern 'greened' area of the project. Be sure to check them out. For many you've got opportunity to expand a little into the space around to build campfires, hives, poles for tying horses up etc.

This is last call on the village sept. Please apply soon if you're interested!

Ant here!
Me and Chewy would like to apply for that small cave Sept in Vyrvillage.

Our idea behind our test, is that the sept itself predates the actuall village, and that it was an ancient hermetic convent, that was built around the cave in which it was said that an aparition of the Mother was seen. It is now intergrated into the village and more or less ruined.

Also, here's the pics:


Tests can be found in /warp Antony.

Loving the pics and tests. I'll paste them in when I have a chance tonight or tomorrow morning. It gladdens my heart to see some posting on this thread other than from myself, Iron and ContraBlonde.

Also I'll be opening a small shieling + walled beehive mini in the hills between darkdell and cockshaw soon so keep you're eyes peeled for that!

---EDIT---

The walled beehives and shielings mini is open! There is a little note block tower within the red hexagon outlined below that has a little more detail on it.
The beehives are encircled by drystone walls to protect from wildlife, bears, but also enterprising poachers and rooting pigs. I'd like for something similar to the traditional walled beehives of Asturias and other areas of Spain, but if there are other fun ways of making some interesting hives in an otherwise 'half-wild' area between settlements, you're welcome to suggest them.
Shielings can be anything from a lean-to to a full cottage, they just need to fit the landscape and local materials. there could be just one of them, or a handful. Also any terrain that is green is finished, and red is WIP. If you want to put things on the eastern side of the hill, ask me first about what you'd need and I can change the terrain accordingly.

Cheers, Aeks

I would like to apply for the Quarry mini. Under Aeks's suggestion, I'm showing my current wip test so I could hopefully finish it on location. I have a wip test on my plot that should give a good idea of where it is headed. Using WE and voxel has been a lot of fun.

screens of the test:
Still to do:

Lime kilns
Stone cutting area
Still figuring out the pebbles
Living area/tents for quarry workers
Various details to show a functioning quarry
and of course, the pallet is still wip.

As always I would appreciate feedback and suggestions in-game or in forums.
Thanks a lot!

I suggested the WIP application and in situ completion as it'd help me flesh out the terrain and structures nearby so I can have Stage 1 of the project complete.
I give this my project lead approval but I need one approving mod

Just checked in game, approved by me!
And agreed on the WIP pasting so that you can work around it for the terra
