1.7 Update

From Alan

With the arrival of 1.7 I had some major plans with the addition of stained glass and tall flowers.

I completely remade the flower area where Haku takes Chihiro to see her parents in the pig farm, and added flowers on every block. lots of flowers. Almost wish there were 3-high flowers to get the full effect.

I replaced colored clay with stained glass in many areas in the interior of the bathing area, particularly above where the foreman hands out bath tokens. changed the sides of that room as well as the bridge on the third level to look much more attractive.

Made Chihiro’s dorm area look SICK by using haybales as the tatami mats, doors for the walls, carpet as sleeping bags, and a working light switch.

After reading “The Art of Spirited Away” and looking at concept sketches,I realize that I had the layout of the interior done entirely wrong. There is actually an atrium shaft that goes from the bottom floor all the way to the top of the building, but I only had it go up three floors and then become a kitchen. That is currently under heavy construction, I deleted most of the rooms that were in the way of the atrium, so right now it’s just solid stone. I added the tower on the top of the building, which I should have added a long time ago, which I think represents the top of the atrium.

Also widened the entire bathhouse by 8 blocks to make the bath area bigger. Some rooms may have “stretch marks” as a result.

Added the secondary tower/bath area that exists on the exterior, to the right if facing the building. You never see it close up, but it exists.

Still working!
