I highly recommend using the resourcepack in the download

yes you can use this for your server so long as there is credit

World save, Recourcepack and Cog schematics included in download


A long time ago there was an island in the middle of the sea.

In it lived a people who were prosperous and free.

One night a star fell

Sinking half the island into hell

The inhabitants decided to rebuild
nevermore shall they be easily killed

They scoured the ruin of the island

Searching for something that would prevent their end

They stumbled upon the remains of the star

And found its ether had magic that would take them far

The magic that they combined with their technology

Gave them a new golden age in their history

For the power they had was shared

And the rule in the land was fair

But one day a ruler could not wait his turn

And forgot that magic ether burns

Now the whole island is in the deep

And the refugees now stuck in turtle ships

(ok "deep" may not rhyme with "ship" but it's still better than saying "sheep")

turtle sheeps....

One of the best builds that I have ever seen in Minecraft. I could never build something this amazing, I would not even have the patience to make something close to this big. You are an awesome builder, and keep up these mind-blowing builds of yours!

Just downloaded this, tried out version 2.  Looks great, beyond great really.  Crashed a few times until I realized my mods were still going.  Not sure if this is normal or not, but I noticed some of the slanted gun positions on top were coming off.  I had anywhere from 2 to 10 minecarts thrown off the side of any particular emplacement.

Secondly, the nice picture above shows it standing in water but the world download had it on grass with some trees trying to punch into it.   Did I do something wrong or is the download simply different?  Is there any way to get a schematic file of this as you have for other of your creations so I can add it to current worlds?  I'm brand new to MCEdit and have no idea how to make my own schematics or I would try.

Thank you for your efforts on this beautiful creation, I look forward to plopping this down outside my friends city to scare the crap out of them :)

Edit: I forgot to add, you got all three for this one: diamond, potato, and pants.

What is that?  Uh, it looks like a chocolate bunny . .?? Or a leather miners helmet?

*twig puts on his glasses and leans forward*

Ohhh, its a mechanical turtle. Wow that looks great!
Some of those shapes and curves are perfect. I couldn't figure out how to do this even with voxel/we.

Hey Carloooo,

I think that I'm going to be the first one who brings you a really useful feedback. First of all I'd like to excuse myself for maybe some language mistakes because I'm not a native english speaker. And don't forget, the following text is just my opinion, nobody have to agree! So let's start!

First imperssion: ... ugh yeah, what exactly should I say now? I think it's not possible to get it in words, but let's try to!
The first impression was really awesome and breath taking as well. The design and the way how you present us your work looks pretty professional. To get a better overwiev of the whole thing, I downloaded it to explore it by myself. I really liked that you tried out the command blocks and I think that you set them, or I should better say the generated blocks, perfect into scene. I also noticed that you had spent some work on a resource pack as well. All in all I can say, that the resource pack just makes the build look like real Steampunk. The structure itself is really dynamic and detailed, I like that! I could never create such a big structure that would look as perfect as this one.
So due to the first impression I was unfortunately a bit disappointed when I saw the interior. I thought that it would be as awesome inside as it's facade was looking like to me. Of course I saw some interior design and it was as good as the facade looked like but there were just a few large rooms which had designed interior. Somehow I missed the interior of a lot of buildings to explore. That means that this build is sadly just useful for any kind of Minecraft cinematics.
But all in all I can say that you've created a pretty awesome structure. I really like your imagination to create such good things. In fact of that you deserved a diamond and subscribe.
And yeah, I know how difficult it can be to fill such a huge space with detail...
