Here's a few shots of Ralgon's main city.

While Richard built the entryway I was already scouting around to find a good location for my dwelling in this dark and desolate land that would be our new home, I soon found a small portion of the cave where the cave roof was only about 14 or so blocks from the floor. I decided to wall the area from the floor to where it touched the roof in brick as I usually do with underground dwellings to make them look more homely, I then cleaned up the stone around the walls and roof and patched up the holes in the roof with wood, I got Richard to cover the floor in purple carpet and added doors. I also cut a few gaps in the top of the wall cause there were a lot of bats flying around and I like the idea of having the floor of my house all lit up and the roof all dark for the bats to hang in, sort of like a bat-house heh.
Richard has built the entryway to the city with was a small
nondescript-looking, lit up square hole in the middle of the desert. The hole
was made of iron blocks and quartz and you jumped down into water then came out
through main entryway into the city, Richard had made a couple of houses and
skull cave entryway and had spawned some villagers who were all gathering
around the entrance as they probably angle toward the light and stay out of the
underground which was kind of funny and sad in this situation, like they were desperately
trying to get away from this desolate place we had made for them.
Which gave me an idea, I decided to make some accommodation
for the villagers, and it would range from 1 to 5 stars, I managed to make the
1, 2 and 3 star house (without furnishings) before we had to stop and Richard
made what would probably be the 1st class accommodation.
then showed me what he’d been doing in one of the caves, he’d used the /replace
commands from the SingleplayerCommands mod to replace all the blocks in the
cave to something more spectacular, blocks of gold, blocks of emerald, blocks of
diamond, lapis lzuli blocks, lightstone, redstone lamps you name it and the
results were quite intoxicating. He'd also lapis-lzulified a nearby chasm.
|My brick walled-off corner with the bat grates.|
|I'd left the interior relatively untouched apart from covering the floor in purple carpet and filling the gaps in the walls and roof with bricks and wood.|
|The entrance hole to the city.|
|There's currently a way down but no way up, almost like a prison.|
|The entrance/exit buildings looks a bit more picturesqe|
|Skull Cave! The Phantom would be proud|
|The Villager accommodation, from left to right 1, 2, 3 and possibly 5 star (not including my house in the distance of course.|
