We're going to take a look at my build on Mindcrack Island! MI was a PlayMindcrack
attraction where players could buy plots and build a world together, on an island filled with areas themed after the then-29 members of Mindcrack. Unfortunately, lack of attention from developers and Mindcrackers led to interest petering out, but I looked at it and took it as a challenge to make something neat with a limited area and limited selection of blocks. And since I'm a big fan of Team Adorabolical
and cuteness in general, I created the Adorabolical House of Flowers at the Adorabolical border on Rellybits's side! These were the palettes I had to work with.
As you approach the Adorabolical House of Flowers from spawn or Aureylian's portal at night, it glows to greet you~
The front door can be accessed from the road on the Adorabolical border, via a lil' path I made connecting the two. You can also see a laddered pillar; I made that so the tree in front of the house can be climbed on.
As you step onto the path, a cheery greeting welcomes you~
Circle around the house to find the back yard, with another pillar to make the second of the three neighboring trees climb-on-able.
Aerial view of the front yard. Parts of the plot border not covered by something else had tulips planted on them.
And an aerial view of the back yard. The fence post marks a corner of the plot.
Come in through the front door to find a pleasant flower-filled room. We'll make it daytime to make this place even cheerier.
The azure bluet outdoors is just outside the area I can build on; I simply took the opportunity to put a window there.
From behind the large plant box, you can climb up to the roof, or descend into
the basement. We might as well visit the basement first, since that's what makes this house "bolical" as well as "adora", sort of.
Here's where things get a little cultish. But only a little! I'm not dangerously
There are 3 flower shrines, one for dandelions... (which isn't perfectly symmetrical due to space limitations; the left edge is slightly longer)
...one for lilacs...
...and one for other 2-block-tall flowers. Sunflowers were not in the Aureylian palette, oddly enough.
The intent of the 2-block-tall flower shrine is to allow you to immerse yourself in floral loveliness~
Between the stairs and dandelion shrine is a door. What lies behind it?
It's a tiny lil' bedroom for myself! I kept extra unused blocks in the chest.
It's a comfy little hidey-hole where I can rest among the dandelionnns~
If you'd like to be anywhere but the basement right now, we still have the rooftop area to explore! Look up as you climb the ladder, and you'll see the pink glass umbrella I built to let sunshine but not rain indoors!
A better view of the umbrella.
There are a few lounge chairs you can recline on to soak up the sun.
An opening in the safety railing lets you access the third neighboring tree. MUST MAKE THEM ALL
We have this beautiful, mystical flower-pot-arrangement-because-I-didn't-know-what-to-put-there-but-wouldn't-leave-the-space-empty.
And last but far from least, we have facing the west a bench under another glass umbrella, where a
boyfriend and girlfriend
pair of great friends can have a moment watching the sunset together.
And that concludes our tour. Remember, there's nothing wrong with appreciating the charm and beauty of flowers~
