-SPOTLIGHT - Shaolin Palace


Hello Crafty Miners, and welcome back to another edition of Spotlight. This week we travel to a far off land to explore the architecture of the Shaolin Palace, so let's get to it!


Conceived by SammyMacman and constructed by his construction company, Sam Co, The Shaolin Palace stands as another epic build in the World of RAAR. The location was discovered while SammyMacman was out exploring and scouting new locations for future building projects. Along the way, he spotted this amazing landscape that sparked an idea.



The Palace is embedded into the rocky cliffs of a central mountain and utilizes smooth orange sandstone and dark oak wood as a contrast. The customized lanterns are made from lamps with a pressure plate on top and with an armor stand sitting on top of that to activate the power. Personalized banners are attached to the sides of the lamps to give it the lantern appearance.


Positioned next to the Palace mount is a bonsai shaped tree contorted to encircle a single orange beam of light. Beneath its bows at the base is a teleportation station which allows quick travel from the Jursammic Park Transport Station located near Grimshire.



Opposite the giant bonsai tree on another rocky mountain is the secluded meditation hut. Constructed out of the same materials as the Palace, the hut serves as a refuge for the Grand Master.


We hope you have enjoyed this look at another monumental build. Thank you for liking and commenting on this post and sharing with your friends. We appreciate all the feedback and look forward to bringing you more builds via this blog and our YouTube channel. Until we meet again, Happy Crafting!
