#**[LINK TO LAST’S WEEK CHALLENGE: MINING TOWN](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/m4xgiv/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_119_mining_town/)**
I could go on for days about things that I liked from this build, but I’m going to mention two specifically. First off, the layout. Everything is laid out so perfectly that you were able to get some amazing shots of your build. The mountain catches your eye up top, then the train slightly below, then finally the houses. They all line up so nicely. Second big thing is the colour choice. Loved how in each of your houses, you chose a different colour. The terracotta also is a little muted, which really made the build appear more western (which is great since your build was going for that)
Sometimes, I find that chaotic variation is sometimes too much and can be an eyesore, but I think you found a happy medium in this build. The paths meshes really well with the structures, and the bushes surrounding them provide just a little more extra to make them look great! What I really loved were the small details in your buildings. All of the small items in your forge looked great! The mine entrance was also so well made!
This was on a smaller scale, especially with the landscape around it, but the buildings were all very unique and well made. I really liked the slightly more refined and modern take on it, especially with the road, since it made all of your buildings feel connected. The main highlight was the train with the mines nearby, such a cool area!
We’re close… and hopefully a couple days after this post is made, we’ll be at 5 million subs to this subreddit! Wow! 5 million! A big thanks to the amazing mods of this subreddit for all the hard work they put in, growing and maintaining the subreddit, and welcome to all the new people!
