CutieKiwi's Creative- Mall Part 1

Heyo Minecrafters!

Since lately I haven't been doing much building (Lie! I was working on this.....), this week I wanted to show you part of a build I am working on at the moment. This is a work in progress, and so each week I'm going to show you a little more until eventually I've shown you the whole mall. This week in Part 1, we have some lifts, escalators made with water and signs (Thanks to Rails2Revolution for the design! :D ), a Starbucks, a SoYo (Frozen Yoghurt) and lots of outdoor seating. Anyways, here's the clip.

Do you like it? Next week I'll show you a little more! =D Comment your favourite shop or place in a mall in the comments below and I'll build it for you! Remember to comment and subscribe!

CutieKiwi's Creative- Tips and Tricks

Hi Minecrafters,

I haven't been doing much building lately (*gasp!*), so I've chosen my favourite two Tips and Tricks to share with you! :)

Tip: Plot Out The Size
When building in Creative, make sure to plot out the size of a build before actually building. If building in a normal (non-superflat) world or on a server, there may be other landmarks or builds, so make sure to build according to space size. This will also determine the scale of your build.

Trick: Command Blocks!
Command Blocks are one of my favourite blocks, although one of the lesser known ones. To sum it up, a command block is like the chat bar's command ability, but in block form. The command block is mainly overlooked because it isn't easy to get it. You have to have cheats on and go /give command_block or /give 64 137. The command block really is an awesome block and can be used for many things.

CutieKiwi's Creative- Terraforming!

Hey Minecrafters!

Over the past few weeks, I've been working on this to go with my new Elsa castle, and I've now completed it! :) This is a giant mountain made of snow and stone blocks. This is called terraforming (when you build terrain) and is one of the hardest/ most tedious types of building, but is very satisfying when it's finished! XD

I built it with no W.E. (World Edit) however, many terraformers do use W.E. for this kind of thing. Here's a photopeach of the photos I've taken. I've also added some more pictures of terraforming, but I think these used W.E.

Do you like it? I had fun making it! :P Please comment with ideas for new posts (we will mention you! :P) and remember to subscribe to us!

CutieKiwi's Creative- Three Top Tips!

Heyo Minecrafters! :)

Today I'm going to be telling you my three top tips for creating an EPIC creative building, terrain or anything in general. Let's get started!

3. ALWAYS plan interior first. No matter what you're building, interior always needs to be designed first because the size depends on the detail. Sometimes, I haven't been able to get enough detail with already created blocks, so I make it giant scale! :)

2. Remember the sponge! Okay, so the Sponge is an often overlooked block, but one the wields great power! Sponge will clear areas of water. This may not work on singleplayer or some multiplayers, I haven't tried it, but I know it works on Mikeland! :P
Bow Down In Its Brilliance!
1. Find Inspiration! I cannot say this one enough. Most of my builds are inspired by the last book I read, my favourite movie (a lot of builds on this one! XD), even a build from another player! I made a smiley face out of two circles! XD

Thanks for reading, everyone! :) Hope you liked it! Remember to comment and subscribe- we love your input!
