Minecraft - Hobbiton Build - A Brief Tour - Part 4

Galdalf's Cutting

Used in the films as the iconic entrance into Hobbiton. Flanked with tall stone walls it frames a view of Hobbiton revealing most of Hobbiton including, in the distance, Bag End and the Great Tree.

This was one of the most visited locations in the build where I would just visit and witness the progress of Hobbiton. Whew, that was a lot of blocks ago.

And once you are through the cutting you are welcomed to some way-finding to help you on your adventuring.

Great Smials

Just beyond the 'Cutting' lies a great mount that houses many of the "Great Smials". The layout of the mound was a little tricky trying to layout a number of smials around a single standalone mound. Some locations had to be tweaked to keep them on a good x/y axis and I had to ensure I'd have enough volume under that mound for all of the interior spaces. This great mound grew several times during the build.

The Main Garden

Built over a great network of underground rivers the crops ensure the Hobbits will have plenty of food to last through the year.
