    • There was no “next build” planned on The Citadel this week. Glad to have the in-game left-to-do list book for Westhill.
    • The green areas outside of the main gate need detail. Leaned into some recent inspiration to add a custom tree along the west road to help give that approach some depth. This lead to a small dirt path down to the marsh.
    • The large north-eastern part of the curtain wall “lawn” needed to be broken up. Added a footpath where people leaving the main gate heading east would likely take a short cut.

FROM: Thor_of_Asgaard
SUBJECT: Calcite And Chalk

Hello Pix, and Joel (and fWhip)

In Episode 300 I was caught by the two ideas of chalk as a new building block with a more pastel pallet, and renewable calcite.

I was wondering if bone blocks could be used to make chalk by grinding it somehow? Or perhaps “bake” (smelt) bone blocks into calcite, as a renewable way of obtaining the block?

Love your show,

Thor_of_Asgaard burnt his fingertips, trying to bake calcite.

Thank you to our Patrons!

fWhip It And Reverse It

It’s always fun to have another builder on the podcast to bring some outside perspective, and new ideas on how to use new blocks in Minecraft. Especially when it’s a creator with the experience, and creative dedication like fWhip. Joel, and fWhip chat about the challenges of integrating new blocks into your existing build style, as well as trying to use the new blocks in Tricky Trials in unique ways.
