Cerralian Empire by KyleVPirate

My lovely, and vastly unfinished, Cerralian Empire is out on the Comunity Center!

Some quick highlights of what’s in it:

Explore the port city, and province, of Cerralia, from where the Empire gets its name from. Over 1,000 years ago, before the Cerralia Empire, there existed hundreds of small kingdoms and city states, most of them on the Mainland. During a massive war that lay ruins to most of the Mainland, the  Cerralians conquered those ravaged kingdoms and city states, and forged the Cerralian Empire. **


Not looking to get wet, or smell too much of fish, the main industry of Cerralia, why not go instead towards the Province of Avornia. After the Norvian Royal Family were dragged down from their pedestal of power in the cold and freezing Avornian Kingdom, the surviving members fled back to Cerralia, where then Emperor, Emperor Juliuos II, welcomed them back, and granted them land to his distant? relatives. Built in an Avornian fashion, for the most part, it’s one of the most beautiful and most richest of all Provinces. **


Not keen to get a reminder of the cold and freezing Avornian Kingdom? Why not go metropolitan and visit the City of Rhine, one of the largest cities, and capital, of the Empire. The city takes its name from what once was the Kingdom of Rhine, one of Cerralias most formidable enemies. After a Great War ravaged the old kingdom, Cerralia conquered it, and retook their biggest city, the largest then of the Mainland, as their own. **


Tired of living big? And of the noise and pollution? Why not go rural and visit the Farmland, a vast peninsula dedicated for raising livestock, farming and more specifically, rye, where it is the capitals main food source. **


Don’t wanna go rural, and instead want to go fancy? Why not go to the big daddy of them all, the seat of power for the ruling Beuton Family, the wonderful, and gorgeous, Beauton Palace. Built over a period of hundreds of years, the Palace has different sections that look vastly different from one another. It was built on the same spot where the ancient seat of power for the ancient ruling Rhinian Family that once ruled the Kingdom of Rhine. **

Fun fact: The palace was shown in the promotional video for Survivalcraft 2, which has garnered over 2.8 million views. Thank you so much Kaalus!


I hope you enjoy the Cerralian Empire, even though it is vastly unfinished, especially the big city, and big big big palace. 

I will be posting a before and after feature post for the empire as I did for Avornia, to showcase the differences and many updates that the world experienced. I hope to recharge many parts like I did for Avornia, since many buildings are in need of updating! Enjoy the Cerralian Empire!

The Kingdom? Of Avornia

A new update for my Kingdom of Avornia world will soon be out up in the community. I must say its been quite a while since I’ve last posted, but through thick and thin, it doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned SC or my worlds. With Avornia, I’ve been updating and polishing the world, especially since this world was created in 2014, and my skills at building have improved, including the welcome update of furniture! So while there most definitely is new content, it’s updating what was already there, if it makes sense. Here are some before and after pics.

Before 


After


The pictures above are seen from my canon landing looking towards the marketplace. Many buildings have been torn down, and have been rebuilt anew, though the inside of them are not finished, and neither are the buildings 100% complete themselves

Here are another before and after pictures

Before

After


The pictures above are taken from the local Cerralian Clocktower College**, showing a more in depth look at the new buildings and new renovated infrastructure. The small things count, more importantly in fact, than just updating the facades of buildings, especially if you want to create a city that feels like it’s alive. Below are some examples how I’m also doing this as well

Before


After


This picture is taken from the entrance of the NorthQuest Cathedral** looking out into the square of the district of NorthQuest, instead of being bland, you’ll not only find new buildings surrounding it, but carts and clothing lines, with lamps instead of torches for light, and banners welcoming users to the library, where if anyone wants a quick history of the Avornia Kingdom?, you’ll see why the question mark questioning if it’s a Kingdom exists ;).

Other Notes:

I’m not done  with Avornia, nor did I show everything that has been changed in this post, so go out and explore. Compared to my Cerralian Empire, this definitely feels complete though. In other news, I’ve published two worlds in the community, my old old old old old Tarzan Adventure, that has been updated with new furnishings and tweaks, and my old old old old old Sunstone City world. Both are some of the oldest worlds I’ve ever made, dating back to when SC was originally released on the iOS App Store circa 2013? My Tarzan world is HARD in survival, and its rating is definitely proof of that haha. It still needs more polish though, and hopefully I’ll fully renovate it one of these days, especially the story and the routes.

New Town & Starting Point?

Randomly I placed a block and out it grew into a full fledged manor 🙂 which spawned a new town. Currently in my Cerralia world I am building a small town a few chunks of blocks away from my capital city. So far I’ve got a small manor with a garden and a gazebo with a small market place. It won’t be too big. It’ll be a miniature little pueblo you can say haha. It’ll utilize medieval/Gothic like architecture (truth be told who knows haha). Some pictures


^ Back side of the manor. I really love this building. Similar to my small church orphanage complex in the city. The house has three balconies so plenty of outdoorsy views right from indoors. Looks rather menacing don’t you think?


^ Side view of the manor with its gardens visible and the market/gazebo complex in the foreground


^ Close up of the market and gazebo.


^ Here lies the front of the manor with some extending gardens. A rather old picture it doesn’t incorporate the side gardens with pumpkins and wheat as seen in the side view picture (picture 2) but regardless gives a nice look at the entrance.
I don’t know the size of the town yet but I’m thinking a good sized town with potentially a larger bigger manor or even a smallish castle overlord overlooking the town on a nearby hill. So far I like how it’s looking :). I’m actually thinking of having the user start their adventure in this town when I’ve finished this world and have created an adventure/story. Instead of starting on the ship one starts in now when entering or starting Cerralia. Hope you guys like it.

Cerralia Empire Version 2 

A new version of my Cerralia Empire has been published and Whitelisted. It adds many new things including new buildings and structures like a small tourney, several villas previously published before, a new church/orphanage complex with a near by gazebo, an alchemist school (not completed), a mansion on the peninsula known as Farmsland, a new Petravali Manor formerly abandoned has now been revived, many changes to several buildings indoor and many more.

A few changes and additions as follow:

 
^ Entrance to the School of Alchemy. Ever since Fireworks were introduced in 1.28 I wonder if they have anything to do with it haha. Don’t tell Cersei…. ):P
 
Tower of Alchemy with several new buildings in the foreground including the small tourney ground way in the foreground with a house and mansion in tow as well. Not completed but have a look

   
^ The church and orphanage complex which is one of my most favorite builds ever with a gazebo nearby. It features a church, a small graveyard, a garden, a fountain, and some enclosed boar. Have a look, for my adventure I have in mind of this map, you might start here instead of the ship docked at the old city port.

 
^ A new building, uncompleted but snug and cozy if you ask me just how it looks from the outside

  
^ The new Petravali manor, way different looking than my previous version of the Cerralia Empire. The color has been changed to match the other Petravali Manor. Note that the Petravali and Rothsdaniel families have a feud.

Enjoy the new update, it doesn’t really a massive update, but it still has some substantially new additions. Hopefully the next update will be a BIG one. I have in mind, an arena, a cathedral, new castles and palaces, a foreground, abalones ruins in the jungle, even a subterranean society ala Tunnels and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Enjoy! Hopefully you spot the differences and improvements 🙂

MincraftKingdomV3 

MineceaftKingdomV3 is out and Whitelisted in the community center. It is a massive update over V2 with many changes, including new buildings, existed buildings heavily remodeled, etc. I’ll post a more in depth seeing the differences soon

  
^ The ruined castle of Avornia is near completion (get it har har). I have a story of its demise which will coincide with the adventure I have planning for this world 

  
^ This is a Fort that holds the entrance to Avornia on land in the South where it connects to a upcoming Kingdom plagued by war and disease which will bring trouble to Avornia, dun dun dun.

  
^ A view from the Princess Tower, or Tower of the Heir, in the ruined Castle formerly the seat of House Norvia, a old cadet branch of House Bourbon of Cerralia, of the city. Long story short their are many changes to many buildings as well as additionally ones. See if you can spot them. There even lies a new district

  
^ Skyline of the city at night, doesn’t it flow so bright 🙂 

Future: Hopefully in the next update I complete the city completely including all new districts and incorporate the city wall which is partially completed. Enjoy haha

Mini Water Garden Villa

Truth be told I’ve been very busy and not able to do any building whatsoever so I took a little brake from the irl commotion to build a mini Water Garden. Inspired by Moorish / Spanish architecture which were used in the water gardens for adorns this season of Game of Thrones which I love (truth be told the Dorne storyline wasn’t the greatest). Truth be told I got inspired and built a mini Water Garden using Sandstone blocks. 

 
^ Situated on a nice built Jill by the old city docks. With great views to not only the city of Rhine but of the ports right below its chin.

  

^ Here we have a little flyover of the mini “water gardens” located right in the center of the villa. A great escape right in your own house if you wish for the outdoors with plenty of greenery. 

  

^ Be our guest and enjoy the delight of the Water Villa! With some nice peek. Boo looks at the Beauton Palace. Mind the cactus though
Hopefully soon I expand and do a little more. I’ve tweaked the Palace here and there and every building in the city incorporating the carpets that came forth from the 1.27 update. Hopefully those changes are shown soon enough. Furthermore my Avornia MinecraftKingdom2 has also seen some drastic changes that I’ll post soon. Unfortunately my Cerralia World and MinecraftKingodm 2 had garnered difficulties in the community center both seemingly unavailable to download and trying to do so gets one an error. Currently that has been fixed and both are available to download after some time. I’ll definitely upload updates soon enough! Current progress:

  

Here’s a little information about the villa and its history, while it takes someone talented to built great structures. It’s really the story that intrigues people and here is mine of this villa. I’m also building a story behind my world once it’s near completion and the adventure begins :D:
 The Villa’s owner truth be told is the sister of the King who once was a Queen! She used to be married to a faraway King in a kingdom known as Victori. Unfortunately things didn’t work out (being a political marriage and having it arranged, she had to leave her beloved on the command of her father, former king of Cerralia) and once birthing an heir for the kingdom, she left and came back to Cerralia once her brother came to reign the Empire of Cerralia and once again reunited with her beloved, they fostered 3 children and built the villa. Tragedy struck though when the king of Victori was ousted by the Balyrian Empire. The heir of Victori and son of the former Queen tragically disappeared. Unfortunately communications ceased between the former Queen and King of Victori once she left her unloved child behind and the poor boy grew up not knowing his mother, having the knowledge that she was dead. To this day no one knows what happened during the coup and the former Queen never talks about her life in Victori or the unloved child that mysteriously disappeared years ago. The villa has a tower ordained with dragons made of Sandstone four on each side. One is not quite like the others and legend says the former Queen of Victori told the builders of the villa to place the slightly different dragon head for her lost child as a commemoration for his loss and for the love she never gave the child. 

Cerralia Update: Clocktower Update Perhaps 

I have not posted anything in quite some time. I’ve been busy in the real world haha but I have done some things in the Cerralia Empire including several nifty clocktowers, which starting in my Avornia Kingdom aka MinecraftKingdomV2

For the city specifically, I have completed a nice little Clocktower that isn’t so little incorporating old fashion architecture when a nice classical twist. Incorporating some Steam punk architecture to the mix. Whatever I was originally planning, of having a classical themed world or Victorian or Medieval is out haha. 

 
^Here is the Clocktower. Very reminiscent of the one in my Minecraft Kingdom I say so myself. Both are very similar, but different. 
 
^ I also have built a little prison near the docks in the old section of the city near the old Clocktower haha where you can see as well as two other ones in the background! 
 
Believe or not I have also worked on my Beauton Palace which has long been abandoned haha after working on the city for so long. Here is it’s very own Clocktower known as the Beauton, plain and simple :-). Like the new one in the city and the one in the Avornia Kingdom, they all incorporate the same time of architecture.
Overall things are moving slowly. I’m not much into the game anymore so idk how progress will from now on.
