I Will Never Be This Creative In EverQuest Next Landmark

By Adam Smith on November 29th, 2013 at 7:00 pm.

My proudest Minecraft creation was a shack on top of a mountain. It had a single room, a bed, a chest and one glass wall that looked out across the world as far as the draw distance could see. It was a terrible little box but it was my terrible little box. I look at some of the architectural wonders and recreations that people make and I think to myself, ‘that is incredibly impressive and it is also something that I will never ever have the patience to do’. The same is true of the EverQuest Next Landmark video below. A piece of concept art is recreated in the game, the whole thing shown in time lapse. I want to walk around a world and see things like this but I’ll be in my shack, with a telescope, watching the ants at work.

I could probably just about manage to recreate that.

      Winding up the spiral staircase that’s inside the tower, having entered from a door on the opposing side, natch.

      It’s Rapunzel’s tower. She drops her long hair when she needs you to clean the house and give her some funny time.

      (And also if you didn’t notice at 0:40 “the house” is one solid block with no interior…)

      Kelethin style elevators. You youngsters may not know this, but Kelethin was the starting village for any aspiring wood/half-elf, and well known for the lack of safety fences on its tree-top dwellings and supply elevators. Many a newbie ragequit over them and left their poorly clad corpse rotting in the orc-infested forest below, not knowing that starting over in Toxxulia forest would be a far worse experience.

    I propose wen the beta start we make “Penisville”, a city where all the building look vaguely like penis. I know the obsesion with the penis shape is more a USA thing than a european thing, but maybe we can embrace it (eergh..) as a experiment. We can pretend is a remembranza to H.R. Giger.

    • captainparty says:

      I really don’t think you’ll have to worry about that. Give a man a tool and he’ll use it to form a penis.

    • MrStones says:

      I get that “remembranza” is probably just a case of mistranslation but it’s now my new favourite word.

      Remembrance + Extravaganza = Rememberanza :)

    • thebluemonkey81 says:

      This is pretty much why when I see this kinda stuff I’m always like

      “OMG, that’s awesome… wait… shit… people are just going to make dicks ¬_¬”

    Can’t they learn anything from other voxel games? Seriously why is there no symmetrical building tool in this game?

    • Serpok says:

      Because symmetrical anything sucks.

    • whorhay says:

      If I am remembering correctly from a previous video they did show that there is actually a copy and paste feature. Once you paste an object, or set of objects into the game you can alter it by rotating it in most any direction and I believe invert it along whatever axis you choose. This would allow you to build symmetrically if I am not mistaken.

    Ah, it’s a MOGE – Massive online game editor.

  5. smeghamr says:

    They didn’t copy the wooden struts on the side properly, so i’m not really impressed.

    “that is incredibly impressive and it is also something that I will never ever have the patience to do” That’s what I always think when looking at mods, but I’m slowly going to change that. Meanwhile, I can just download other people’s hard work.
