Collaborating on New Castle Design

The developers announced they are taking submissions for new castle designs to debut with the 20th anniversary (https://uo.com/2017/02/24/looking-for-n ... e-designs/). This would be a great project to collaborate on with my new home building show. It would be great to work together with some people who we can submit a design.

My home building show currently airs every Saturday at 6pm EST. But I may do additional shows or maybe even just do specific shows for designing/building the castle.

If you are interested in helping out with ideas then post here or contact me.

Current ideas:

- Side entrance on the east
- A Moat
- Outer wall overhangs like the large tower wings

A castle is a type of fortified structure built in Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages by European nobility. Scholars debate the scope of the word castle, but usually consider it to be the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a palace, which is not fortified; from a fortress, which was not always a residence for nobility; and from a fortified settlement, which was a public defence – though there are many similarities among these types of construction. Usage of the term has varied over time and has been applied to structures as diverse as hill forts and country houses. Over the approximately 900 years that castles were built, they took on a great many forms with many different features, although some, such as curtain walls and arrowslits, were commonplace.
