Hey Robz,
Thanks for your interest in joining out server. With builder applications we ask applicants to do a practice build by copying the house at /warp apphouse

You'll find the full instructions, as well as a few other points to include in your application here https://forum.westeroscraft.com/form/builder-application.3/select

You can reply to this thread with screenshots of your house (and if you re-read all the guidelines you should pick up on another instruction to follow as well) to continue the application.

Cheers

Hey Rob,
Thanks for replicating the application house, as I hope you can tell ,we try to put as much detail and signs of life as we can into every single building on the server. Hopefully through this application process you'll see how this approach is carried across our different projects and styles.

My only small note would be to include the wattle half fence around the edge of the garden.

Otherwise you're off to a good start and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make next.

For your first challenge build, please make a Low Class Farmer's house in the style of /warp tarbeck and share screenshots of it in this thread.

Take note of commonalities between the houses (block mix, shape of roof, size of house, interior blocks, attic spaces, mezzanine platforms) and make a house that would fit into the Tarbeck town. It would be great if you could add a yard to it too.

If you haven't already, you can take a look at the Basic Building Guide for some more tips.

Please take your time to study the style in detail, and make sure to ask if you have any questions on the above feedback or the Tarbeck style.

Good luck!

Hey Rob, thanks for completing this Tarbeck house.

On the whole you've done a nice job, the shape, look and feel of the house is largely consistent with the Tarbeck style.

I'd only suggest a few changes to make it a little more consistent with the other Tarbeck builds and other server style guide.

- We generally try to avoid using full log blocks in buildings these days, since they tend to look a bit chunky/monotone. Other Tarbeck have used a combination of wooden planks/slabs to add mezzanine levels like this one below.

- The yard and its block mix are looking good overall, I'd also just suggest adding some grass plant on top of the ground grass blocks. You could also add some leaf blocks to represent bushes/shrubbery.

Otherwise I like all the small details you've added to the interior of the house and the yard and how you've used a variety of blocks for the cabbage patch.

For your next challenge, please build a middle class professional house in the White Harbor style of /warp gullsgate (the general style in the sprawl outside the main city walls). Houses in large towns will usually have a profession on their on the ground floor and residence upstairs, take a look at the styleguide at the /warp oldstyleguides and the finished houses in the White Harbor area for inspiration, and give the house some kind of profession that would make sense in White Harbor (e.g. carpenter/cooper/blacksmith/boat builder, netmaker etc).

Would be great if you noted in the post which profession you go with too.

Thanks again and good luck.

Thanks for the quick turnaround Rob.

House is looking good, a butcher was a good choice for profession and the house overall aligns with the White Harbor style around Gullsgate.

Just a few small suggestions:
- When using these multi-sided utensil blocks/drawers/cabinets, we try to use half doors/other blocks so that only one side of the block is visible. It's not the biggest deal on progression blocks since it's conceivable they'd have more than two pans like in this case, but would be worth doing on drawers like in this case

- White Harbor rooves have the distinct Nordic style tip on both ends, see example below. Instead of oak wood for the rooftile support blocks I would've gone with northern wood or spruce too.

Otherwise I think the interior elements/other details are looking in good shape so I think at this point you'll learn more from being an actual builder, so consider yourself approved!

Please make sure to read the New Builder guide here: https://westeroscraft.com/wiki/guides/new-builders-guide

The next step is to make a probation thread in the Probation Forum. You can start building at any open locations on the server - you can find a list of these at /warp build, although it's sometimes outdated, so I would also recommend just asking people in-game and checking the forums for recent project happenings.

You can also toggle open plot markers on the dynmap mc.westeroscraft.com

A probie leader should post on your thread within a week or so and continue to give you constructive feedback on your houses for the next month (and help be your entry point into the server community in general), although as sometimes the probie leaders are busy IRL you may need to be patient while they find the time to respond to you. But message me again if a probie leader hasn't contacted you within two weeks, or if they're taking a while to respond.

I would also encourage you to seek feedback from project leaders and other builders/mods. At the end, you'll be made full builder assuming everything goes smoothly.

I'd suggest you also start thinking about what projects you might like to work on, we encourage new builders to first work on "mini-projects" which are small one off areas of other projects, e.g. a hamlet, mill, quarry, and flagged as open for mini-apps by the project leader. Once you've done a few of these you'll be able to apply for a full project.

Make sure to stay in touch and let us know if you're losing interest, not finding enough work to do, or if there's any issues with the probation.

Welcome back and I'll see you in Westeros!
