This is a bare bones ring world based off of Larry Niven's work. I've modified it to fit minecraft physics. There's an artificial sun in the center. Currently the ring world has a bedrock bottom with a grass block covering and a glass upper part. I have a quarter ring w/ grass and without grass as well as the central star in the schematic file.

Additional Notes

Original SketchUp model was a Sonic Ring by YoshiOG1

Just so you know the sun does not really need glass still liquid keeps its shape.

Actually my stars do need glass. Otherwise you get a dome topped lava cylinder. Interior glass is optional, but I like having them hollow so that you can use the space for whatever.

Actually with MC edit you don't. Liquid in minecraft has 2 settings. Either still or active Put liquid in still the liquid keeps in shape. I on this map actually removed the glass from the star it stays. But yeah you have a good point with being able to fill it with anything. I also removed the walkways. I replaced it with nether portal travel to get into the sun.

Am currently making a sort of station in the sun. The liquid thing I discovered a long time ago how to make it stay.

But another question what kind of beast of a PC do you have? For me I cant even use the schematics for the ring they are too big for my PC to handle.

If you have a 64 bit processor I highly recommend using the 64 bit MCEdit, that helps alot.

I figured more of a steampunk zepplin. You'd have to build some docks is all.

WOAH! Coming from someone who understands MCEdit, this is amazing. I'm still not sure how you did this so quickly. hmmmm... I should be pondering this for some time.

Well shucks ;) My wife says I cussed alot while building it. Especially the hollow star, because I kept forgetting to turn off the air copy while assembling it.
