Date Joined: April 11th 2018, with my old username xXThe12thXx, although in around 18 days it will be change back to that username.

Jobs and Plotbuilds: These are most of the jobs I can remember. Two houses in Moria's Central Dwelling with NicTheFifth, Four houses in Moria's Second Dwelling with Nic, One house in Moria's Waterworks with Nic, The final vegetation job in Tofalas (I don't know who the foreman was since Ruben led the job basically), Some pillars in Moria with Nic, Road upgrading with Bart, Some farm walls with Hendrick and then Bart a different time, Farms and vegetation in Nic's Rohan town that he is upgrading with Nic, and Moria Hall ruining with Mr_Pants. There are more jobs that I have done but I can't remember them.

Themed Builds: I have one completely finished theme build at the moment, but plan to do the next theme and update this thread. The theme I have finished is: Watchtower, 176,5,33365,
Additional Builds: I don't have any images of any additional builds at the moment, but I was practicing arches on freebuild. Also, I have some house builds on Single Player and a few Rohan house versions on freebuild.

My Interests: Some of my interests on the server include building in the Dwarven and Rohirric build styles of MCME. Besides those two styles I like to build in a somewhat Dol Amroth style. Also, I love to build farms, vegetation and streams.

My Motivation: I love seeing a project evolve from a small idea to a finished product, and looking at this server you see that here. That motivates me to want to help build this server to the final product, especially in Moria and, upcoming, Mordor!

I like this application; well structured, clear and organized. Themebuild is fine on these are my comments on it.
I like that you raise the ground however I would add a ditch to it.

Also I would be afraid to try some different shapes like you see here. Also your roof is interesting however I haven’t seen a lot of towers with that style and I would try if I were to take a more realistic approach somehow along the lines of this:

Also I see you have a “rail” on both sides which imo is unnecessary.
Also I would make the grass a lot more lush by... adding more grass.
Anyway a good start and when you comeplete more themebuilds I can see you as a potential candidate for the Watchlist soon.

Thanks for the advice BWOT. I will add those things to the theme build and update the images on the album. Although I am confused on what u mean when u said, "Also I would be afraid to try some different shapes like u see here."

I have updated the Watch Tower Theme Build. I took the pictures of the old version out of the imgur album and put the updated version in. On the theme I have added more grass to the vegetation and added a ditch to the front wall, the one facing the road. Also, I smoothed out the terrain on either side of the road. I redid the whole vegetation on the newly smoothed out terrain by the road.

I meant wouldn’t instead of would’ve afriad but spellcheck corrected me. I would still try different roof shape for the top of the towers. Vegetation is much better. I would remove the spring, quite weird that it sprouts from a mound out of nowhere.
Glad you took my advice on not having a high barrier on both sides, but now make like a stair for access up there and maybe instead of grass bordering the wall on the stair side try some dirt and make it seem worn and used. Do your towers have interior?

I have updated my Watch Tower theme by adding the stairs, dirt along the wall, adding support to the thatched roof inside the tower, and extended the wall downward instead of stone on Eriols suggestion. Btw the album is updated with the new images.

Make sure to show the interiors, also if I were you and thinking this through I would have half the base so (around a quarter of the whole tower) even if it’s in the inside being stone or rock making the base sturdy and harder to break through. This would probably mean adaptation though in the interior as it cannot go all then each tower interior cannot be accessed from ground level.

I have updated the vegetation, added a small line of cobble to support the wall in the ditch, added some cobble in the interior to help support the tower, and have added a small cart to the road. Also, I am currently working on the Carn Dum Theme build.
