    Hello Build Team I am back for redemption! :) I will be showing off 2 new builds plus my current progress on my CCity plot. I thought first hand I should mention that I will be on as much as I can. This comment is being said due to the fact I am currently a Life scout in the Boy Scouts of America Program. I am currently working for my Eagle rank which is the highest rank possible as a Boy Scout. I am currently SPL(Senior Patrol Leader) of my Troop. This position ranks me as the one in charge of my troop under the Adults. But I have always know that, even though I am in charge I have always know that I need to work with all the other Youth leaders of my troop as a TEAM to pull through and make our troop successful. One last thing before we start please proceed to all coordinates in order there will be more to add at the first coordinate. If I am not accepted please consider my help with anything needed on the server.

    IGN/in-game name and nick: Pixel_Vapor_YT (No nickname)

    Age: 15

    Corbacraft Rank (on all servers): Lothar: Titan, Philia: Commoner, Aurelia

    What timezone do you live and/or work in? United States EastCoast

    Can you use Slack? I do not have it but have researched it and will obtain if accepted to build team.

    Can you use TeamSpeak? Same as above.

    How long have you played on the Corbacraft Network?: I started playing on the server during this past summer.

    What time of the day are you most active?: Normaly I am on during Monday, Wednesday, Friday and the weekend if I am not at Boy Scouts. I am usually on 5pm-or-6pm to at least 9pm during week and sometimes on and off during the weekend if I am free at the time.

    Have you ever applied for this position before?: Yes I have applied but was turned down because I attempted to apply with only one build.

    Have you ever been jailed, muted, or banned before on any CC server?: No

    Please provide a link to your liteban page (even if you have no record): http://play.corbacraftmc.com/bans/history.php?uuid=31b378a5-a852-4f50-a873-3c7aae0326f3&from=bans

    What reasons do you have for applying for the builder position? I love building I just find it so relaxing. I have good teamwork skills due to my time in BoyScouts. I am very trustworthy and very well behaved.

    Have you ever been (or are currently) a builder on another server? No

    Do you hold any other position on our server or another server (such as staff)? No


    I am very sorry for no pictures but it is always more realistic when you see something up close and personal!:) Dont worry a part of me will be your guide. Just tp to every coordinate and you'll find out why I said I am there.

    P.S. All on Lothar.

    While myself and Celt will see the builds in-game can you still please provide screenshots for those who aren't able to get in-game very often or still want to see the builds? That would be great.

    Over the next few days, I will find time to check out the builds in-game. After that, I will issue you a challenge. We'll go over that when we cross that bridge.

    We haven’t forgotten you. I’ve looked at your imgur album but I haven’t had a chance to look in-game. I will take a look tonight and get a challenge issued tonight as well after I get off work.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Challenge:

    I’d like to see how you would go about building the Big Ben that’s in London. It’s apart of the parliament building but I want you to just focus on the clock tower portion of the build. As always, I won’t give too many specifics because I want you to have fun with it and make it something that’s unique to you but that doesn’t mean completely change the building. Look up pictures and really do the research that you can to get it as close as possible.

    Deadline will be 2 weeks from today thus being November 29. If you need an extension we will grant you an extension by a week just make sure you let myself, Celt or Alice know.

    If you have any questions or need anything cleared up, let us know and we will be happy to answer those questions.

    Good luck!

    Hello Build Team I am finished with my challenge! I have worked very long hours to get this done and took multiple screen shots of my progress of this build. I have included the pictures I found off Google for a reference. I used different colors from the real life Big Ben with my main colors I like to use in builds. A build such as this is very new to me especially not in creative or with fly. Now I understand its not a perfect replica but on the other hand this is the best I could do to replicate it. The build is near my Outpost build that I showcased in my application.

    I'm really torn with this. Undoubtedly you have worked very hard and I think you need credit for doing this without fly and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how big you had built it. However I feel you have built an excellent clock tower and not the big Ben in my opinion.

    You are always very pleasant ingame and I have never seen anyone have any issues with you as a player and I have enjoyed seeing this build progress :)

    Whatever the outcome I really do think you have potential as a builder :)

    It isn’t bad and as Elaine said building it without fly is quite impressive but here’s a few things I’d like to see changed:

    1. Change the building material to something lighter such as sandstone or smooth sandstone. The dark color just doesn’t fit very well with the Big Ben.

    2. Try reworking the top. It looks a little funny. I think the proportion is off in that area. Doesn’t match the rest of it.

    Make these changes when you can and we will go from there. This will also give us an idea of if you’re open to suggestions and willing to take suggestions and direction.

    I’ll make your new deadline December 6 so you have plenty of time to make the changes and get the materials needed.

    Well I need to apologise Pixel.

    I just showed your picture to a 14yr old friend who doesn't play minecraft and without saying anything else I asked "can you tell what that is supposed to be?"

    With no hesitation she said... big Ben! :)

    Thank you so much for your feedback I will soon be working on trying to change up the block pallet. If you by chance have any other feedback on what you would like to see about this I would love to make any changes.:):):)

    Elaine I would like to tell you apologies are not needed. I myself understand that my build does not look to much like Big Ben. If you have any ideas of things I could change I would love to here them.:):):)

    I really like the clock hands that you did - made them kinda swirly looking. The rest of the top bit though there is still looking a bit strange. The little areas that come out kinda and the top isn't proportioned right still. Perhaps you haven't made your way to working on that yet.

    The rest of the build is perfect. From those 6 dark wooden bits down to the bottom is great. It's just the top part that's still looking not right.

    Keep at it though and thank you for the update!
