Junk Jack X - Trigardens Castle updated

From this last year:


to this:

 I'd leave this game for months at a time and come back to add some stuff now and again. I love how ever update to the game brings something new to discover and collect. I'm excited about Junk Jack X going to the PC even though I don't think I'll be playing it on that platform, I think I'm just happy the game is expanding and the devs are able to bring the game to more people.

Junk Jack X - The build that didn't quite workout

A Giant Fish Tank

Wouldn't it be cool to make a great big fish tank surrounded perhaps by modern buildings filled with aquariums.

It came along quite nicely at first. An underground cave assessible via a passage, and an embedded shipwreck.Then I discovered a lot of things like furniture and plants can't be placed/planted in water. And of course the fishes in JJX are invisible unless you catch them first and put them in fish tanks, and fish tanks can't be placed in water.... I thought I could surround the glass tanks with blocks but then the darkness generated monsters in front of the fish tanks. It just couldn't work out nicely.

 I'll revisit the idea again someday, maybe make it not so big.
