If you think of the wild west after it was getting urbanized more and more throughout the decades you would’ve seen improvements regarding structures and buildings and it would potentially look like something you guys have build. Nice detail, different use of materials/blocks and color (banners) adds some essence to the town itself and that way it doesn’t seem boring and plain.

Great build!

In 3+ years that we’re doing this challenges, we always welcome creativity, uniqueness and thinking-out-of-the-box mentality. You did exactly that. We can just imagine how much time went into creating the item frames to play along with the style of early 20th century movies, editing as well adding all the mini-props as you’ve called them on the walls of your buildings … And on top of that, to create basically a set for the wild west and tell a short story with it.

Great job!

Even though we always posts “requirements” with our challenges, we always percieve them as guidelines and refrences to help people that may not know exactly what to build for a certain topic. Which is why we don’t restrict ourselves and welcome new takes and new, fresh ideas in these challenges. One of those is also King_2131’s submission with a couple of horses running down the wild west canyon, maybe from Indians who were hunting a suspicious outlaw that was trespassing on their territory. Whatever it may be, it’s really well done, from the canyon to the organic shape of the horses, which all impressed us. Very good build!

#**Introduction**

Well, we’re going back underwater but we’re building ourselves some new bases!

This challenge, we’ll be constructing some underwater bases for ourselves which can hopefully function as normal bases for some players (that is, if they have conduits or water breathing potions). So let’s put on some scuba gear and get to building!

**New Textures**

Since we have an official release of the new textures, they are now allowed (along with the old ones). However, if you use the new textures, please specify. I wouldn’t want to think you’re using a texture pack and disqualify you. I’m not as used to the textures, so I may not recognize them right away.

**Underwater Base**
