From the Ground Up: Dimension Building Videos
The videos linked below are a 10 part video building series taking an Endless Eclipse dimension on Zaviel EU from this:
I worked off the assumption all viewers would have basic knowledge of dimension UI functions, as well as basic (very basic) knowledge of the Toolbox addon. Episode 1: Groundwork. Diva joins me to talk about the basic plan and changing the environment radically in 3 easy steps: Music Box, Sky Projector and PvP Banners to adjust entry points. Episode 2: Laying boundaries, beginning the landscaping, building towers. Episode 3: More landscaping, the effect of base dimensions on terrace ponds, using light to change effects. Episode 4: Starting the structure. Using a Dimensional Distance Indicator for centering and alignment, curved facade. Episode 5: Arches, arches, arches. Windows and doors, creating illusions to fool the item limit. Episode 6: Beginning the interior of the castle. Entirely revamping all the landscaping. Episode 7: Small item morphing on the inside, and reskinning interior walls to make them distinct from exterior walls. Episode 8: More small item morphing, spinning to make square things round using Toolbox. Episode 9: Finishing out the living areas, all small item morphing, a bit of exterior embellishments. Episode 10: The conclusion. Finished small item morphs, checking for stray bits and floating objects.
All videos and past livestreams from our Saturday DTC Roadshows can all be found on the DTC YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCES...evw18f4uad5rPw.
On the Dimension Touring Co. blog site, DimensionDiva and I also have a full page dedicated to various building tricks: Tips 'n Tricks, talking about everything from weather blockers to draw distance and much more.
Very educational video series, which show a neat way to build your own structure with no premade buildings. It's useful if you still think working with the basic building blocks is too frightening, and it's also useful if you are already an experienced builder, because it contains tricks you might not have thought of!
And the DTC Tips&Tricks pages are something that I often refer back to for advice, so much info there!
Nice 1 Feen!
Its always nice to see the science behind a build!

what i do is build it > save key parts > remove all and build it again while commenting. Then its not new anymore to you and you can almost make it without effort.
