Minecraft Hoenn: Part 7/43: Route 107 & 108

Part 7/43 of the creation of the Hoenn Region in Minecraft.

In this part I made Route 107 and Route 108. These routes were easy to make as both routes consist of rocks and shallow sandy islands. Routes 107 and Route 108 connects Dewford Town to Route 109 (featured next in part 8) which goes to Slateport City . Route 108 features the Abandoned Ship which is not an essential location to visit during the Story in the GameBoy game. These Route's were so simple that it took less than one afternoon to create them.

ROUTE 107:
Route 107 connects Dewford Town to Route 108. Route 107 runs east west and in the GameBoy game is first traversed on Mr Briney's ship.

The rocks are all similarly shaped and the entire route is made of 3 materials. Dirt, sand and light blue clay. Because all the rocks were similar it was easy to make the Route. The whole route took less than 2 hours (including breaks) to create.

 The beautification of Route 107 by adding vegetation.

That's all there is to Route 107. There's not much to write about so apologies for that.

ROUTE 108:
Route 108 is very similar to Route 107. The similarities include slightly longer length and the Abandoned Ship (reserved space marked out with red sand), and some sandy islands covered in shallow water.

While I was experimenting with the FOV settings I found that decreasing it to 30 creates a viewing angle that looks similar to the GameBoy game.

And here is Route 107 and Route 108. The render distance is set to the maximum of 16 chunks which is almost but not enough to render the entire route.

And finally, this is the view from Dewford Town as the player leaves for Slateport City.
That's all the progress so far in the Hoenn Region.
Apologies for the lack of content. There's not that much to write about these Routes.
In the next part I will have built Route 109 and the Abandoned Ship. Hopefully this will be more exiting.
I have also prepared a spreadsheet containing a broken down list of everything that is going to be built and what part it will be featured in. The list contains a total of 43 parts including my release of the Minecraft Hoenn Region for all to enjoy. Hopefully I will be done by the end of the year but I have a very busy few months ahead due to exams as it is my final year at school (finally) and when I need to I will prioritise school over this but this project will almost certainly be completed within the next 6 months.

Stay tuned and subscribe.

If you have any tips for improvement please don't hesitate to share. It would be greatly appreciated.
