    Name: TwoPlyClaus (will be changed back to TwoPlyGaming once I can be bothered to change it.)

    Nickname:
    TwoPly


    Age:
    17

    Corbacraft Rank (on all servers):
    Groovy

    Timezone:
    EST

    Slack:
    I most certainly can.

    Teamspeak:
    Yep.

    Discord:
    Indeed.

    How long have you played on Corbacraft?:
    Quite a while. I haven't exactly kept track, but it was about 3 different Philia servers before Sophus was formed.

    What time of the day are you most active?:
    Depends on the day, honestly. I'm busy some days, and others im doing absolutely nothing. However, I usually do find time. If I had to make an estimate, probably around 6-9 on weekdays, and basically the entire day on weekends.

    Have you applied before?:
    Indeed, I have. Four times, actually.

    Have you ever been jailed, muted, or banned before on any CC server?:
    Nope! I'm proud of that record, honestly.

    Do you have any issues with using another server in order to build and/or learn on? This also correlates with making sure to not talk with anyone else in the server regarding future projects or builds unless directed by the team. Will this be an issue?:
    It shouldn't be an issue. I'm able to keep secrets.
    Liteban:
    Here.

    What reasons do you have for applying for the builder position?:
    Now that the server is (finally) updating to 1.13, there is so much more to be done. There are so many more possibilities for building. You can build stairs underwater, and it DOESN'T look weird! That's amazing to me.

    Another thing is that I believe that events just get boring after playing the same map over and over again. I know it's a hassle, but events need to be replay-able. That's why I want to add more event maps. Even if its just for, say, spleef. Events can be improved, and that's how it's done.

    Builder on another server?:
    Nope.

    Any other position on our server or another server?:
    Nope.

    SUBMISSIONS:

    "Volcano Bay (Not to be Confused with the Volcano Bay at Univseral Studios, Orlando)" is located in Lothar at these coordinates: X: -8762 Z: 6367
    Fun facts:
    -This took a lot of black concrete powder. A lot.
    -I live near Musicmanpiano18.
    -I was just finishing it up until I heard the news about the server resetting, so theres a bit of Mesa mountain sticking out.

    "Ruin Jungles- I MEAN JUNGLE RUINS" is located on Sophus at these coordinates: X: 5339 Z: -10199
    Fun Facts:
    -I use parrots as detail.
    -The converted temple outside is unrelated.
    -It's completely man-made. The hole was blown up by hand. The ores were placed by hand. The river was filled by hand.

    "Desert [REDACTED]" Located on Sophus, the coords are here: X:7114 Z:-8195
    Fun Facts:
    -I planned on this being a post-apocalyptic trading city, but now the server's updating so...
    -It was flattened by entirely hand, with a bit of help from other people here and there.
    -If you're gonna take anything from this, take it as a message about how much I'm willing to do for a build.

    Although I'm not a Builder, I like to give my own feedback on other's builds/applications!
    For your first build, I find it incredibly reminiscent of cubfan135's massive Volcano Lands project he made during his walkthrough. I like how you've recreated it, but I'd recommend you to give it some more original twists! With all of the new blocks available to us now, I'm positive that you can take it to the next level.

    For your second build, I like the terraforming that you've done. More pictures and a spruced up entrance would greatly benefit this build though!
    And finally, for your last few screenshots. It isn't exactly a build, per say, but it does illustrate your dedication, which is good.

    To summarize, I'd recommend that you get a lot more pictures of builds up here. You only really have two, and the Builders will be looking for more. I'd also advise you to give your builds a more personal and original touch, as they don't really stand out otherwise. Good luck in your application!

    Indeed it is based on his volcano lands, I tried my best to give it more things. Though, you'd be surprised how little blocks work with what I tried to go for I even decided against going with coal blocks instead of Obsidian because it just didn't look right to me. I fought with myself for like 3 days deciding to go with nether brick or stone brick. The twists: I added "sub-biomes": the Dead Forest, Fossil Fields, and Ruins. I tried to get as detailed as possible in the Obsidian Cave, mostly by using fire to my advantage. Since smoke can rise through one block, I thought it would make the cave have more motion and look a little more heated.

    For the second build, I actually meant to make a small entrance that led to something much grander hidden inside. That's actually why its almost completely surrounded by mountain. I wanted it to be a little bit hidden, but still possible to find.

    The third...yeah, I agree.

    Thanks, mate.

    Hello @TwoPlyGaming
    we took a look at your application and sadly discovered that you didn´t put any new builds in your portfolio. If you check the builder guidelines it says you have to present at least 75% of new builds, every time you apply for this position.
    Due to these reasons we won´t be accepting you at this time, still we´d like to put your application on hold till the new server is up and running so you have the chance to expand on your portfolio.
    Update your portfolio with new screenshots and answer under this threat once you´re done.

    Thanks for showing interest in the Team ~The Builds Team

    I really like the second build because it's a cave ruin theme which is neat and would be cool to see at the small cave at the new spawn although it would be cool to see something with a bit more twist like fin said

    I think your own biomes are cool, but I was kind of expecting some big builds like actual buildings or monuments and such, also I'd like to say, there isnt enough to showcase in my opinion.
