So, now that all of this nonsense with FyreUK has boiled down... I'm not really done building. I don't want to fiddle with Sentinel anymore, and Stormside City looks worse every time I load the map.
It occurred to me earlier this evening that I could apply the same basic concept of some of my former Microspace builds to Minecraft with generally the same effect. Thus comes the idea for Minecraft Quickies.
A Minecraft Quickie is a 45-minute building skill test, sortof like a speedpainting. Pop open Minecraft, load up a new Creative-mode world with whatever seed strikes your fancy, and start your timer. Build something. When the timer goes off, stop construction and snap a few screenshots if it's worth anything.
This thread is for posting those screenshots, mates. Have fun! I'll be posting my own in a little while to get us rolling. If you land upon a particularly cool or noteworthy map, be sure to post the seed! It's always good to have a cache of neat seeds at your disposal.
