“You know, I’m something of an architect, myself”.

I've been known to demolish a building or 5000.

That's hilarious and cool at the same time!

Have you seen the new addition to the Guggenheim Minecraft server?

"First design collapses and kills all inhabitants"

Back when i was getting my architecture degree i used the source engine (hammer editor) for several projects. Quick and easy to set up the geometry, tons of surface materials to choose from, and a huge library of props to fill the space with. Dr Breen even made a few cameos.

ID: gveuxxy

That's hilarious and cool at the same time! Do you have anything you could show us from that time?

ID: gvew9yf

I have thousands of hours in Hammer, why did I never translate that into architecture?

ID: gvez6br

Because Hammer can be a bit of a bastard. Do recommend looking into Hammer++ though if you wanna fuck with stuff again.

I spent a ton of time in GtkRadiant mapping for Jedi Knight II back in the day. It's ultimately what got me into architecture.

ID: gveyucj

I used the Sims 3 for both my Business and Interior design classes.

ID: gvfdha4

Unreal engine is the new thing for real time visuals these days. If you know how to use it its can be a really good asset for your CV.

ID: gvft3hp

ya any basic level editor is gonna be 100x more productive than Minecraft lol

You know he's not an actual architect because it looks like he has money. * sigh *

ID: gvf3zow

Try to design homes with panic rooms, rich people love panic rooms.

ID: gvf6dir

youre always welcomed to my panic room

ID: gvfcakb

The best part is you don't even have to be rich! I can panic in any room I'm in!

ID: gvflp4y

Do you think they would take a home where all rooms but one are panic rooms?

ID: gvfpb6z

Get that rich a panic room, riches love panic rooms.

I work with builders who think architects make buttloads of money. And they refuse to believe otherwise.

ID: gvfrasj

Conservation architecture is where the money's at

Pulling in to a car park in a Land Rover and being very conscious that you've got the cheapest car in there is a very strange feeling

ID: gvg29th

Architecture gets you prestige respect, not money... trust me on this one

ID: gvg7o71

Also, not a math whiz. Hahaha. Ahhhhh. The misconceptions of the profession by outsiders. I wish I could do a sitcom that showed the real side of the profession. I have too many good(horrible) stories. And they get better(worse) with age

No wonder contemporary architecture is full of straight lines and boxyness

Minecraft YouTuber Grian actually did exactly that. Specifically, he built his irl house in Minecraft, renovated the garden in the game, and then used that as a reference for the landscapers he hired.

Found the video. (I used Minecraft to design my Real Life Garden - Grian, 2020/08/10)

ID: gvffprv

I use the sims 3 to map out my home landscape projects

ID: gvfjbrd

I remember this! Grian is awesome

"you can fit sooo many people here"

Covid: "No, I don't think you will."

ID: gvfz2jg

Ended up watching the whole thing. That's some major landscaping work and really impressive. Did they ever go over how much something like that ran them? I'm guessing he's somewhere in the UK?

Hey wait a sec

What about Scrap Mechanic

I actually use it to help design dungeons and stuff for D&D. It helps me get a sense of scale when I can walk around the place, and it lets me find the areas that don’t make sense.

ID: gvepikt

Now I'm just thinking about how cool it would be to walk around some of the dungeons we've visited in our D&D campaign.

ID: gvergmr

Ive heard people talk about dnd servers where there are full scale modules built but i have no idea if its true

ID: gvewka2

wait that's actually a great idea, we could render a dungeon/rpg environment in 3d using software so that the players could actually explore it and see the world around them

why has no one done this before?! let's get on it

edit: video games.

ID: gvetuxc

I do the same thing. I build everything double scale to how you see it in Minecraft, and leave the roof off. I checker the floors in alternating colors to make the grid easier to see. Then players can just set their minis on too of the flat screen.

As an architect, I love minecraft so much and would love to same my education and experience in the industry made me an incredible minecraft builder... but quite the opposite. I take way too long to design & layout a plan in minecraft, and by the time I'm done with work I want to turn that part of my brain off. Sounds weird but best way I can explain it. In highschool and college I would take my time, plan out a floor plan, and build something beautiful, now I get stuck on the plan for an hour lmao

I heard from my brother that some architecture students used Minecraft w/shaders to present their project

ID: gvera35

One time I had a college project to design a car wrap for a non profit company.

I just booted up forza and played that for a few hours lol.

I genuinely thought the guy in the first slide said "You're that bigot Architect"

I'm planning my own place right now and as soon as I got a draft from the architect, I recreated it in Sims.

15 : Anonymous2021/04/22 13:17 ID: gvfvibs

Step 1. Find the style - we'll go with Tuscan Mediterranean

Step 2. Figure square footage and budget

Step 3. Get ideas for dimensions of each room

Step 4. Sketch out basic floor plan ideas

Step 5. Begin building in Revit

Step 6. Realize you do not understand Revit

Step 7. Scream at Revit

Step 8. Boot up Minecraft

16 : Anonymous2021/04/22 09:41 ID: gvfdc1i

As someone who works in architecture, modern BIM software like Revit is actually a lot more like the sims haha.

i zoomed in to see if this artistic drawing meme was made out of blocks

Jokes aside though, have you seen Grian's video on this kind of thing? He literally redesigned his backyard using Minecraft and it turned out amazing.

NGL, I use the sims 3 to map out my home landscape projects

I know that Minecraft has been used as a design tool before, for some reason...

But please be aware that saying this is the equivalent of showing up to basic in the US Army saying that you trained with Call of Duty, so you're already a pro.
