Planning and Reflection of the Psychopath Sanctuary By Haley Stockton
So I first started off by building a modern home, thinking that psychopaths usually blend in with society. Then I knew that I wanted to build a secret dungeon/layer of sorts where a psychopath would do his/her psychopathy like things. Naturally, I put it under the house.
Once the outside structure of the house was built, I built a couple houses farther away in order to emphasize that the psychopath lived more in isolation.
After I finished the outside, I started getting to work on the inside. I wanted to make it look as normal as possible to coincide with the human aspect of psychopaths.
Underneath the house I built the secret basement. As far as that went, I just built in a trap door that led to the basement. The basement was a long hallway with a couple rooms as seen below. I really struggled for a while to try and find things that could go into the basement, but just decided to put people in cages and the creepiest stuff I could find in there.
The entire thing definitely took over five hours, maybe around 10. Just because I wanted to build a neighborhood near by (before I figured out you could spawn villages so that was cool). Anyways, I tried my best making the interior look like a home, but I quickly found that Minecraft education doesn't use mods, which is what people use to make stuff look cooler from what I understand of them. The basement took a little bit of digging since I built the house on a cliff, but other than that, no huge complications.
But, after all that, I sat in class and was looking at the more detailed structures people built and decided that mine wasn't really all that detailed, especially the exterior of the house. So, naturally, I lit up my house.... literally.
In my next attempt at the sanctuary, I decided to google what a modern house looks like in Minecraft. The youtube video that I watched to get an idea is in the link below.
After I watched the video, it gave me an idea of what I needed to make my house look like to create a modern vibe. The exterior of the house are presented in the photos below.
I was much more proud of this build than the original. It just seemed to come together much nicer than the structure of the other house. I was bummed out; however, that Minecraft education doesn't let you make black stained glass. The interior of the house is pictured below.
