Top-Left: "Base," my second minecraft map ever, (the first was sadly deleted, though I may be able to rebuild it sometime from some leftover screenshots.) made sometime prior to September in 2012. I consists of the wooden base and a train station going over to some trees. Really, the most 'interesting' thing about this is the random M I made atop the base, shown here.
Top-Right: "Castle," my sixth (other maps are less interesting, or just plain too difficult to screenshot concisely) minecraft map, made sometime prior to September in 2012. It was my attempt to create an egyptian-styled palace, though I got basically nowhere. Seriously, I intended this to be a tiny part of the overall building.
Bottom-Left: "City," my seventh minecraft map, created sometime prior to September in 2012. It was my first real experiment with Redstone, following a youtube tutorial's instructions to make a working porticullis that could raise or lower at the press of a button. I started building a castle wall around that, but didn't get very far. I also built a redstone-powered garden made of wood inside the wall, but then later set it on fire and filled in the hole, deciding it would be better to wait until I had the wall done to start building the city.
Bottom-Right: "Obsidian," my eighth minecraft map, where I started getting more adventurous with Redstone. I was attempting to create a puzzle map with branching options, but it... didn't quite work out.
This is the first in several parts, which I'll post here sporadically when I feel like it.
