My nephews are all into it. They always want to show me the stuff the built, but I just keep waiting for something to start happening. I don't get it. Is it just building stuff and that's it? lol

For the most part. There is a survival mode where you have to fight monsters and gather stuff to survive. Most people play creative mode and just build things. It seems boring at first, but over time you can make some crazy s**t. It gets addicting lol.

Yeah, and then one day you're so addicted you make Levi's Stadium.

The west side of the stadium where the luxury suites and press boxes are located is designed to trap noise so it will bounce from the glass and back onto the field. Plus the lower bowl is massive so I'd imagine it'd cause like an echoing effect around the place.

Not sure where it'll rank next to the loudest stadiums like Centurylink and Arrowhead but it should be much louder than Candlestick.

i wouldnt say it was designed to trap noise. It was designed to be more of a college atmosphere with the largest lower bowl in the NFL.
Article a few pages back already talks how it will deflect the sound towards the field

"It's going to be really loud in here," said Rayborn, who works for Turner/Devcon construction. "Really loud. Really, really loud."

Then he explained why. The stadium's design is different from most football stadiums.

The vast majority of luxury boxes are located in an eight-level tower -- essentially, a 12-story building -- on the west side of the field. That means two things: One, there are no upper decks on the west side, just the lower bowl and the tower. And two, the east side upper decks can be closer to the ground -- because it does not sit atop multiple levels of luxury boxes.

Perhaps that's a bit too architectural-geeky. But the practical ramification is this: All of those fans on the east side of the stadium (who are closer to the field than at Candlestick) will scream noise toward the field and the west side of the stadium. And when that noise hits the large flat side of the tower, the noise will immediately bounce right back toward the field.

We should still pipe in noise like a*****es though.
My prediction: As loud as Seattle or Kansas City, the NFL's two loudest outdoor stadiums. And I'm not even accounting for how loud the 49ers will decide to crank up the stadium sound system with new state-of-the-art speakers. In Seattle, as ordered up by rock fan owner Paul Allen, the tweeters and woofers are deafening.

speakers will be placed under the field and will be able to turn them on any part of the field

What's going on with the construction, laying down the sprinkler system?

It looks like they're grading in the sub grade soil. Usually they get that placed and compacted then dig trenches for drainage, then gravel/sand, drainage fabric/mats, irrigation, top soil, sod or some sequence close to that.

still feel that way?

If memory serves our plain stadium cost more than these. We would have needed 1.5->1.75 billion to build a similar stadium in the bay. Plus the Dallas and AZ stadiums were 50%+ public funded.

That tower wasn't built to trap noise lol. It was designed to make rich people comfortable. The glass is angled up.

On what planet would angling the glass up be beneficial. Angling the glass up would cause more refraction of light and thus a more distorted appearance. Ideally you would want your line of sight to be perpendicular to the glass as to have no refraction. My guess, the glass is straight up and down, but if they could tilt it a bit, it would have a double benefit.

FYI straight up and down glass will still reflect noise to the field, even from seats opposite but below the suites.

My point still stands. It most likely wasnt designed with "lets make this b***h loud as f**k!" as the number one design criteria. The niners were going for a great experience, so they looked at other venues and decided having a large ass lower bowl would be best. The obvious benefit to thiss is tmost of the crowd is closer to the field which will make the venue louder than candlestick.

Edit: now that I think about, they did design it with the intention to be loud as an underlying criteria. Let's make these jeans loud!

i think itll be pretty damn loud for three reasons. one: the lower bowl is huge and will be closer to the field. two: that big ass glass wall will reflect noise like crazy and amplify everything and three: the team playing in the stadium is the best in the league so fans should be jacked up about that. if they can be as loud as they were at the final candlestick game all year long our homefield advantage will be insane
