[203] Modular Lane Castle

    This one is actually sort of an upgrade of the Linepiece I posted before, well it uses it as a base that is. It's again a "modular" building containing these modules:

    ---WS mod-----------Quarter Mod------LaneEntry Mod

    And also some other smaller structures like Devil's Basin and a small Airblade:

    Here three iterations of this castle.
    The thing on the top is a variation (a small "airblade" build into the structure to catch bomb jumpers) and the thing before the entry area is a little trap.

    Also see my thread "[203] Modular Hill Castle" for an explanation on the outdated archer shutes.

    Here is an upgrade after investigating the needs of archers a little more:
    The base is a little destructed allready (enemies tunnled through and came from the back.
    Anyways, I think this design of archer shutes is quite better than the old one or the second one. The archer can pretty much wherever the hell he wants with maximum security (stone holds off attacks nicely, if you want to shoot in something that is obscured by the stone you can get down on the ladders and shoot from there). I tried making it so that the archer gets hindered as little as possible and keeps a large angle to fire from. Another good part about this is that knights can easily drop down from the window now (without bugging through the 1 block wide gap) and the stone can easily be used as a makeshift gravity trap in case of a huge assault.

    This is very nice use of many of the different types of structures you've posted. I've always been a fan of modular building, so I'm really enjoying these you've been posting I can't wait to use them.

    Added V2 according to information gathered in the archer subforum.
