So in general, what is your inspiration point? A concept, a part, a technique? Or does it vary from build to build?

And I hesitate to ask, what's a Nether module?

I've seen GBC modules that had tables that move around before and I wanted to make one for myself. Since I already have 3 Minecraft modules I wanted one more to complete the "series". In fact the baseplate's I've been looking for was so that I could place all of these Minecraft modules together and have additional room to add more decoration. (more characters and animals)

At the end of last year I bought the Polar Igloo Minecraft set on sale and I thought it would be fun to use some of those parts and do this one in a winter biome.

The Nether is a different area in Minecraft that has a different look and tougher monsters.

Here is a "follow the ball" video of the layout @ BrickCan 2019.

We didn't have room to put this out at BrickCan but I think the motion of the balls is wonderful so check out my 8 foot Duplo slide here.

As usual the GBC layout was a huge hit at BrickCan again. Well done all that were involved!

Scrooge heard about the price of GBC balls, and is now hoarding them instead of gold coins.

Also I'm giving away a Technic set as part of a promo I am doing on the channel, drop a comment in the video if you want a chance to enter.

That's just cool. Are you able to switch out the car for a covered wagon, or does it become too heavy for the mechanism? One of these would look great:

I love the studs out building. Just for cosmetics (adding to the old west theme), could you have an axle go through the wall and have it turn a water wheel on the outside?

Here's my latest. It's a utility module that will allow for condensing the amount of GBC on the table by splitting the flow of balls into two separate paths.

Not sure how you'd load and unload it, but this device looks interesting.
