Minecraft Hoenn: Part 20/43: Meteor Falls

Part 20/43 of the creation of the Hoenn Region in Minecraft.

Meteor Falls. A place buried underneath Route 114 and Route 115 that links Fallarbor Town to Rustboro City. The completion of Meteor Falls signals the completion of the western half of Hoenn. But unfortunately that doesn't mean all of Meteor Falls is here. Only the first room would fit. Building the room to the back would be almost impossible as it wouldn't fit without serious modifications. But you get the main room and that's what matters. The important link between Rustboro City and Fallarbor town will be found here.

Meteor Falls is an underground link between Rustboro City and Fallarbor Town. In the Gameboy game there are 4 different areas the player can visit. Unfortunately not all the areas will fit in the Minecraft World. This means that only one room has been built. But only one room connects both Routes 114 and 115 together.

As you may have noticed in the last part,  Route 115 was left unfinished so Meteor Falls which is right underneath will be easier to build. And it was. The first thing to do was to excavate what I thought I would be using. This was done with an external world editor.

Then it was time to start construction. Getting the layout correct was difficult and constructing it was even more difficult. 

For some reason in the Gameboy game the ledges have a visual effect that suggests they are filled with water. So I filled these ledges with water as well.

There is a small river with a waterfall which runs through the centre of Meteor Falls. It was quite easy to make. It follows the exactly how it's seen in the game. 

After the main bits were done it was time to start building the walls of the sandstone mountain range on Route 115. 

Some changes had to be made to the mountain range to accommodate Meteor Falls. I tried my best to make the exterior look genuine. 

After all that it was time to start refining Meteor Falls by replacing all visible dirt with sandstone and adding torches to light the place up.

And there you have it.  Meteor Falls complete.

Looking down the waterfall from the bridge. 

These ledges provide a one way trip down to the Route 115 entrance/exit. 

This area is not original. It leads to the Route 114 entrance/exit. But it does provide a nice view across Meteor Falls.  

Route 114 and Route 115 finally complete. 

Looking up to the exterior of Meteor Falls form a small beach on Route 115. 

Meteor Falls. Fallarbor Town through here. 

That's all the progress so far in the Hoenn Region.
