Royals Project Builds

 

All of these builds have been done in Dragon Valley, but Royals Castle and the current work in progress- White Towers Manor have been used and tested on lots in Sunset Valley, Monte Vista, and Hidden Springs! I use no cc in my builds and no cap patterns! I also try to use cfe as little as possible as I find that many people encounter problems with it later on. The lots are generally extensively play tested during the build process and story telling portions!

Royals Forest

It does not contain any custom content but it is a custom placed lot. I am including views here so you can get an idea of where it was built in Dragon Valley! As I have mentioned before during the earlier creation process, it is designed with story tellers in mind. It is also easily converted to a community lot if you would rather use it that way. I tried to keep it fairly basic so did not include a lot of décor. I also did not include garden plants but there is plenty of open space left for you to add those on your own. I did place butterfly and small bird spawners as well as fish spawners and some alchemy insects. There is also a dive well in case you should want your own time slip opening!

Here are some finished photos of the property. Most of you who have been following the story will be familiar with the property since it was used extensively in recent episodes!

I did make one last addition to the open field. I thought it would be a thoughtful gesture to include a memorial to Guinivere Pendragon who so died so tragically there in that field. If you happen to wander into the field now, you will find a monument to a fallen Fairie in the middle of this peaceful meadow that is now filled with butterflies! Of course we may never know for sure who placed the monument there. Nothing has ever been mentioned of it…

We did not use all of the lot for our filming purposes so you might wonder what some of the other spaces looked like? For example, we never saw the basement of the Abbey.

The basement portion of the Abbey contains kitchen, dining, sleeping spaces for pilgrims and other weary travelers, plus work areas which include nectar making, alchemy, and gem cutting. This is also where the privy and bathing spaces are located.
