The Build Sharing Topic!


Recommended Posts

I didn't see any not dead topic like this, so i figured I'd make a new one! The idea is to share screenshots and videos from both games! (For building tips and tricks go here)

DQB1 logo

Feel free to post screenshots and videos showcasing interesting builds. Share sources if it's not your own buildings!

If you share Terra Incognita builds, feel free to share your ID, and from which platform you play since DQB1 didn't have cross-play of any kind.

DQB2 logo

Feel free to post screenshots and videos showcasing interesting builds. Share sources if it's not your own buildings!

Share your Builder ID if you have uploaded your Isle of Awakening or one of your Builderopias to the Noticeboard, or even if you have just only uploaded some screenshots to it.

Worth noting that you can visit and upload islands via Noticeboard without a Nintendo Switch Online / Playstation Plus / Xbox Live Gold subscription AND even from the game's demo. Just get to the noticeboard, search by id (or by popular tags/islands) and press the right joystick! And one last important detail: it doesn't matter which platform you play on, you can visit any island that is uploaded to the noticeboard.

I'll start with a couple videos by Japanese builder Oyu. This player made some insane versions of Furrowfields and Khrumbul-dun. Very pretty, with some amazing building techniques on display and overall amazing cohesive building style on both towns.

A friend and i have been working on my Isle of Awakening recently. Long story short, months years ago i terraformed my Scarlet Sands into a witchgrass + poison swamp area, and made it some blocks higher than it was originally (that part was hellish). A while ago, i started working on this place again, and in the last few days a friend from Discord helped me add life and texture to this little town.

These two screenshots are more or less around where the north-west corner of the pyramid would be, just some blocks higher. At first i only wanted to use dead trees, but the decaying yellow trees look great too, and add some color on top of the purple-ish and black-ish tones i had before. And so do the pumpkins!

And the next two are in a cave connecting Scarlet Sands and Green Gardens, a bit south of where the river ends and west of the abandoned house.

This town is super chaotic right now, but it's very nice to be in!

I plan on uploading this island to the noticeboard in a month or so, maybe? For now, one of my Buildertopias is there, so feel free to visit it! ID: p6eipQsFao. I'll put some screenshots of my uploaded Buildertopia in a spoiler tag. If you come visit, please take screenshots and show me!

Today's builds come from @Glaceon Mage!

(This post's soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojEyUU2M6z4)

Glaceon here recreated part of the Unova region from Pokémon Black and White, and their sequels Black 2 and White 2. These games are my favorite Pokémon games by far, so i was waiting for the moment Glaceon uploaded the island to the noticeboard, seeing their updates through Discord was very cool!

Great job, Glaceon! This place is amazing and i loved visiting it! My feedback would be this: add static npcs here and there, if possible!  Other than that, really good island to explore 😋

The island is still WIP, but visit their island with this id: 2AQFGJ7eU8P.

I'll put some images from the original Pokémon games in a spoiler so you can see the effort Glaceon made!

I made this a while ago and never uploaded it to noticeboard, but here's my recreation of Madam Luca's house from DQVI!

And unlike Unova, it actually has an interior!

That looks amazing, Glaceon!

That reminds me, a couple of months before the western release of the game, i made a miniature version of DQ6's Amor in the Japanese version of the game. It was like 10x10x10.

Builder Mugi made a small 20x20x20 recreation of the kingdom of Corona from Disney's Tangled. Here's their tweet, in case you want to give them a like and/or share their gorgeous build!

(I know, i know, the kingdom's name hasn't aged well... but we need to point out that it's named after the word "crown", and not after the virus.)

Since this is the second post mentioning creations within a space limit, i wanted to say that after doing a few builds with limitations like this, i felt like my building techniques and ideas improved a lot. Give it a try if you can, it's very stimulating!

Glad you like them, Platty! 😊

Next one is kami-kun24. This man is a legend, as his amazing builds got into the Builder's Best and even into the cover of official Square Enix DQB2 books!

(Context: The Builder's Best was a Japan-only contest of DQB1 builds in which the devs selected 100 impressive builds and added them into DQB2. One appears randomly when you go to Explorer's Shores)

The video i wanted to showcase is this one in which he uses both magneblock camouflaging and water manipulation to make his character walk on water lillies! Both of these techniques are advanced, and honestly a bit confusing, but its very fun to watch imo.

 I copied this for a small area in my one Isle of Awakening.

He also did other really incredible builds, but i'll post those another day. If you want to see more of his builds, check out his Twitter or his youtube channel.

Our next builder doesn't make super beautiful things but his creations are mindblowing regardless! Today i wanna talk about Holgrin. I recently came across a reddit post by him showing a sneak peak to his next creation, and then i remembered his previous builds and thought i should share them here.

This man experiments with the water, buttons and lights to make things like this binary counter:

He also made a video explaining digital logic within the game:

Fascinating stuff.
