  • I know this isn't the highest view count you'll get out of a video but I really appreciate you making this video I've been sharing it around with my friends that are interested in learning building techniques and getting started on designing interesting builds.

  • take your time coming back to minecraft, but we miss Kingdoms

  • Hey Wels, Absolutely love your stuff. I hope all is well with you. I just finished binging Kingdoms II. I was wondering if we can expect to see more of that series any time soon.

  • Hey Wels! Was just coming here to give a suggestion for a video/series. I (and many others) really loved your previous hermitcraft season, where you did "Historically accurate" castle things. How about making a series of making historically accurate everything? Like pick a historical castle, lighthouse, museum, modern build, whatever; and make it historically accurate. Would make for an interesting series, to see you build for example the Red Square, Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Bodiam Castle, the Temple of Inscriptions.... and so on and so on. Just take a history book and build something that looks interesting; historically accurately!

  • So for context I am going to school to become a dental technician (building dental appliances like crowns and dentures) and decided to see if i could apply this concept to the thickness of the layering of porcelain on the crowns I'm making in class to achieve a more natural effect. We're taught to make the edges not uniform on the under layers for that reason and so far the results are good. I explained the concept to my instructor and she likes the effect so far :)

  • Thank you so much for this video, Wels! I've been playing Minecraft pretty much since it first came out, but I could never work out why my buildings looked so bland. This is such a good tip and you explained it so well! I'm definitely going to try to use it to fix my old builds :)

  • I've learned a lot about building from your videos, especially adding depth!

    drewrwrrdrewrwrr2 maanden geleden
  • I came to Minecraft from RPGs and adventure/strategy gaming, so building was secondary to me for a long time. I've recently started taking an interest in making better builds, and these tips help a lot. I've heard a lot of builders mention depth in their videos, usually in context of why they are putting a particular block into a section of a build. It's very helpful to have the "why" of that idea laid out clearly. Thank you!

    Antonio 101Antonio 1012 maanden geleden
  • Man, I got so excited when I saw the little "NEW" marker on the video :D I've been looking at builds that use this kind of depth and trying to emulate it for ages with little to no success, so I sort of gave up on building in favor of other tasks in-game for a while, but watching this made me wanna get back into it. I definitely feel like I understand the concept better now :D

  • So you wanan get good at building: Just check out Grians 5 B's of building. And then look at some of Pearlecent moons content. Elysium Fire, Gemini Tay and Trixy Blocks are also really good content creators and builders. Builders Refuge is a good mc server for you.

We all care about your well being, and we hope you are alright! Ignore the people who are haters, instead think about the positive people!

  • I love building and i really want to improve my depth, thanks wels (love the peaceful music) #QnA 1: you have a youtuber "Blitz" mentioned in your channel section, why and did you play with him at some point? Main reason for asking is because i've watched him for about... 5 years i think. So im really interested to find out.

    Smilee SmilesSmilee Smiles2 maanden geleden
    • I've known Blitz for almost my entire NLworld career. Taught me a ton of stuff about YT back in the early days. We haven't done much together as far as videos go, though.

    Allister GamingAllister Gaming2 maanden geleden
  • Y'know I'd consider myself an okayish builder, I texturize walls, I do depth and such, I don't make plain rectangle builds but... I never thought to actually play around with shapes! I'm so excited now!!!!! AAAHH!!!!! I'll never build the same again!!!! I'm so EXCITED!!!!!

I think he's looking for a change in direction right now for his channel, thus this tip video, just trying things out to see what is enjoyable for him.
